  • To Die For: Exhibiting Rage

    More
    When I'm willing to lay my virtual life on the line to sightsee, the video game has to be a sight to behold, nevermind a feast for the senses in general. So that's how I found myself likely with a Bandit's bullet through my skull as I wandered... More
  • Smiling Through the Pain

    Dead Island is at once one of the most fun gaming experiences I’ve had, and one of the most frustrating, which begs the question, “What is your threshold for video game pain?” In regard to Techland’s zombie apocalypse title, the... More
  • Surviving the Dead Island of Banoi: A Photo Essay

    7

    In this new pictorial, I explore my first few hours surviving the horrors of Techland's Dead Island. As always, I'll give my impressions while also trying to make observations that others have overlooked in the reviews I've read. My hope is that you gain a better understanding of the island of Banoi to help you make your travel plans (though you might want to wait until things die down!).

  • Will Wonders Never Cease?

    You’d be forgiven for thinking this is a rhetorical question, however, lately I’ve had occasion to ask myself whether any media no matter how expertly crafted can recapture childhood awe? Perhaps big business has become so enamored with its... More
  • Torches Vs. Pitchforks

    In the debate over retail sales of video games there is a dangerous us versus them mentality that has created a great divide and threatens to undermine our industry. While the recent Supreme Court victory against government regulation (Brown vs. EMA)... More
  • The Best Demo You've Never Played

    Searching for previews of Dungeon Siege III recently I was struck by the lack of interest in this forthcoming title. Granted, a few days ago I would not have been surprised in the least considering the ambivalence I harbored for this seemingly generic... More
  • The Outsider's E3

    More
    I am neither a video game industry professional nor a party crasher (not since high school, anyway). In E3 parlance, that makes me an outsider, both figuratively and literally. So I decided to stop by anyway, and this is what E3 is like for the rest of... More

    L.A. Noire inspired me to tour the Historic Downtown area of the City of Angels to see how the streets might have looked during 1947 as depicted in Rockstar’s gritty and entertaining vision. I’ve interspersed my pictorial with notorious tales... More

    I've been unable to play online for the past few weeks, my work's been interrupted for hours on end the past three days, and I haven't been able to blog on the site Blogger for the past two days. What do all these issues have in common? Electronic... More
