    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

    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

    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

    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
