    Another Sunday means another episode of 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die, the (hopefully) weekly series where I play through all of the games listed in the book - 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die. If I played the game before... More
  • Half-Life: Opposing Force (Chapter 6: We Are Not Alone)…

    As always, I took some screen shots...

    More
    Today is Saturday, which means it's time for another chapter in my quest to play through all of the Half-Life games. I'm currently on Half-Life: Opposing Force Chapter 6: We Are Not Alone. I commented last week I was curious what this meant and... More

    Was he cursing me under his breath?

    Up until a few weeks ago I had never played Magic: The Gathering. I was familiar with the game but never really had any desire to play it. Alas, a few of my co-workers used to work at Wizards of the Coast - the company that publishes the game now - and... More

    Cheers.

    There are a number of ways you can measure the success of a video game title and even though I'm no developer or publisher I have to imagine if your game gets a convention named after it, that's a pretty good indicator there are people out there... More

    Imagine a game that emulated the real world.

    If you've been gaming for any length of time, no doubt you've heard the conversations about how games have continued to grow and evolve over the years and when we can expect to see games that truly look like real life and convince us they are... More
  • Laughter (Caused By Video Game Memes) Is The Best Medicine...

    9 1

    Oh, and I'd love to give the creators credit for creating these fine works of art...but I don't think anybody ever really knows who makes memes...they just sort of appear, right?

    More
    Feeling kind of blah today. Not really sure why. Stayed up too late playing Titanfall? Probably. Anyway, I don't know about you...but whenever I need a pick me up, I turn to video game memes. How can you not laugh when you read some of these? The... More

    Team Fortress 2 - Heavy

    There are fighting games, and then there are games that have fighting. You would expect a fighting game to have punching as a maneuver. Heck, most of them label a button or two (or more) the punch button, so of course they probably have really good punches... More

  • Half-Life: Opposing Force (Chapter 5: Friendly Fire)…

    Next week...looks like I'll be playing We Are Not Alone. Unfortunately I've already experienced that firsthand, but it still sounds ominous. I can't wait to play it. See you next week.

    I got a late start on my weekly Half-Life play date but I always enjoy playing through these games and hammering out a blog to go with it. As I recall, last week ended with me finding some of my squad mates, so I was excited to see how that was going... More

    Have a great weekend.

    I had an opportunity to attend The International today and all I can really say is...WOW. If you're not familiar with the event, it is a Dota 2 championship tournament sponsored by Valve. I wrote a blog a few days ago about the record breaking prize... More

    So, why do I play video games?

    More
    I play a fair amount of video games. I write a fair amount about video games. I might spend a bit more time writing about video games than I do playing them. When you spend a lot of your free time playing video games and writing about them, it might seem... More
