    I'm not known for posting Top Ten list blogs even though I'm a big fan of them. I've even documented this in a blog titled, Top Ten Reasons I Like / Dislike Video Game List Blogs (find it here if you want). But every now and then I'll... More

    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

    I had a busy Saturday out and about while trying to escape the heat. But when the sun finally set and everything started to cool down, it was time to continue my trek through Half Life: Opposing Force. Last week was a short mission but one that set the... More

    Yes, that's exactly right.

    Ten days from now, the lives of a handful of gamers are going to change forever. They will be millions of dollars richer - not from winning the lottery; not from receiving an inheritance from a wealthy family member; not from finding a mint condition... More
  • Would A Drone Video Game Be As Controversial As They Are In Real Life…

    Drones.

    I'm a big fan of shooters and always enjoy the ones that include real world events and potentially controversial subject matter. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon comes to mind, and if you're familiar with the game and what is going on in the world... More

    Personally, I care...but it's getting harder to.

    Not too long ago I blogged about how 2014 has been a year of transition for many big names in the industry, not the least of which was Amy Hennig leaving Naughty Dog under unusual circumstances. There's been a lot of talk about Ken Levine and the... More

    Are you surprised?

    You're playing a video game, when a character approaches you and asks for a sum of money. They give you a semi-plausible excuse and, well, your adventuring has been somewhat profitable lately, so you oblige them. They thank you for the money and turn... More

    Mirror's Edge

    I am fascinated by Parkour, which may or may not be odd since I'm about as graceful as rhinoceros and have the coordination of a newborn. I suppose when I say I like it, what I really mean is l like watching it (or playing video games that enable... More

    Last week I played Ballblazer, an extremely rudimentary soccer-like game from a company that eventually became LucasArts. It was a game I had never heard or played before, and not one I'll probably ever play again. Yes, it was that good, heh heh. I also made the comment games had been hit or miss lately and this week proved to be no different. Once again I was faced with a game I hadn't played before or heard of. This week the game is none other than...

    I was really looking forward to tonight because it's Saturday, which means it's time to play some more Half-Life: Opposing Force. I just started my play through of the game last week, and tonight I continued the adventures of Adrian Shepard, a... More

    Exploring Freedom In Being A Gamer...

    I don't know about you but I had a pretty amazing Fourth of July. I spent the day with family doing all sorts of fun stuff like swimming at the lake, building a bonfire, shooting off fireworks and eating some tasty food like hamburgers and s'mores... More

    I'd like to see a Ninja Warrior video game...

    More
    I don't know what it is about Ninja Warrior, but I'm a huge fan of the series. I was watching it back when the contestants didn't speak English and it wasn't called American Ninja Warrior. And as much as I like the show, I much preferred... More
