    If Far Cry launches on schedule sometime in 2018, it may very well be one of the most relevant games of the year. It has the potential to reflect and punctuate a new reality in the presumably "United" States of America, the ever growing social... More

    With all the recent hoopla over PewDiePew, one key point that kept coming up is the general image/stigma associated with being a "gamer". In fact, in Game Informer's recent opinion piece, the argument was raised that part of what made PewDiePew's... More

    Let's be honest. This is a very exciting, and also strange time to be alive. With all of the technology and modern comforts we enjoy, we should be seeing a virtual "Renaissance" across all spectrums of science, technology and even social... More

    Just how bad can one blog be? How few views can one blog get? We shall see my friends. We shall see. For starters, maybe I'll discuss how fantastically underrated a game Solitaire is. Yes folks, there's a very good reason why it's on every... More

    I'll be honest. In recent months, I feel that somehow I have lost something in my writing/blogging efforts. It has been a silent, nagging worry. Ever present. Something I am vaguely aware of, but struggle to know where it had begun. At times, I have... More

    Sega, Sega, Sega. (Shaking head) A company I love, but also one that drives me crazy. Every now and then, they get something right, like Yakuza 0, and Sonic Mania. Other times, they do things that are just baffling. Anytime Sega decides to release a greatest... More

    After more than a year of skillfully building anticipation for Project Scorpio, the moment of truth has arrived. Microsoft has delivered on their promise to develop the most powerful console ever, and yet... there seems to be a rather odd silence that... More

    Trying to imagine what the future will bring is always tricky business. In most cases, prognostication on the future is either too optimistic, or too naive. If you look at science-fiction movies, books and tv shows from the 1960's and 1970's,... More

    It still surprises me to think about it. By rights, I should have bought a Nintendo Switch at launch. But, no. Not yet. I have really enjoyed the Xbox consoles, but that's not where the bulk of my gaming dollars have gone. Overall, the majority of... More

    A couple of days ago, I was walking through a mall and I caught a sudden whiff of something sticky and sweet, like cotton candy. Then, in that peculiar way that smells can do, it triggered a flood of memories and images of past summers and how much video... More

    Her large blue eyes could barely look away. Even as the storm winds howled all about the surface transport. This part of the ride had always frightened her, and yet filled her with an insatiable curiosity. From her window seat, she could see them clearly... More

    Being a kid during the 80's, much of my childhood involved a profound obsession with giant robots, mechs, and things that transformed. Whether it was GoBots, Tranzor Z, or Transformers, those franchises fed the imaginations of an entire generation... More
