  • Half-Life: Opposing Force (Chapter 9: Pit Worm’s Nest)…

    2 1

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    As excited as I was to play another round of Half-Life this week, I was thankful it was a short mission. I had a busy day doing responsible grownup stuff, so I got a late start and didn't have a lot of time to play. And even though it was a short... More
  • A History Of (Non) Violence…

    6 1

    Is this kill cam an innovative feature? Indeed.

    The most peculiar thing happened a day or so ago while playing a game being streamed on Twitch. A number of people watching the stream commented about how the graphic violence in the game deterred them from wanting to play it. Specifically, the game has... More

    (ta da - the light switch)

    If you're reading this, then allow me to welcome you to Guess that Game, a monthly feature loosely based off of the game of 20 Questions. The first thing you might want to do is make sure you are viewing this with the website lights turned on (the... More
  • Haven Is For Real…

    I've played quite a few levels in my time...

    I am a big fan of shooters. This is no secret. I've been playing them for the better part of twenty years now. Like some of you, I grew up in the Doom (and Doom clone) era. I've been playing them ever since. I've also been blogging for a while... More
  • Video Games Stats I Hope Nobody Is Tracking…

    5 1

    Mind Blown!

    Video game stat tracking is perhaps one of the least talked about features in gaming that has witnessed tremendous growth. When I think about video game stats, I really have no memory of the first game I recall that did it. The few games I do remember... More

    A few of the news reports I read quoted his wife as saying...

    It's about 6:00 PM (PST) and I just can't bring myself to continue working on the blog I had planned for this evening. On the way home I heard the news about Robin Williams and now that I'm home I see everyone from the President on down talking... More
  • 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die – Number 71…

    Kung-Fu Master

    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

    2 1

    See you back next week where I will take on Pit Worm's Nest. Doesn't that sound exciting.

    Yay, its Saturday. Which means besides's time to play some more Half-Life. I'm well over half way through Opposing Force now and this week marks another chapter in the second game in the Half-Life series. At this point there is something... More
  • So Many Halo Maps (Including Some Of My Favorites)…

    8 1


    I've gone on record stating Halo: Combat Evolved is my favorite game of all time. And despite a few fairly recent games that have given it a run for the like Uncharted and The Last of the end of the day the original Halo still... More
  • The (Video Game) Things That Keep Me Up At Night…

    9 1

    Or maybe...

    Ever have one of those nights were you lay in bed trying to fall asleep and you just can't. You're restless. You toss and turn. You turn the pillow over so the cool side is up...but after a few flips neither side is cool. You try and count sheep... More
  • Are Non-Gamers Becoming Extinct (And Should We Care)…

    10 1

    "Mr. President, your daily briefing."

    Think about all of the people you know in the world and then ask yourself, "How many of them are gamers?" If you're older like Hist (or me) then there is a good chance your parents probably aren't gamers. Mine aren't. I dunno, maybe... More
  • Gamers Against Moms Against Gamers…

    There is a user account on Twitter - @MomsAgainstGam

    Twitter. I know many of you love it and use it - because I follow you and I see your tweets. And I know some of you don't use it (and some of you downright hate it). I have blogged about it and some of you have commented. And I have read the witty... More
