    I decided a while ago I was going to replay all of the Half-Life games starting with the first one and going through all of them one by one, start to finish. The main reason was to see how the games have aged over the years - whether they're still... More
  • Not Every Game I Play Is A Video Game (Or is It)…

    Say what?

    More
    It might seem like I play a lot of video games, and who knows, maybe I do. But I have lots of other interests too. I'm always looking for new things to try. So, the other day when my boss was passing out booster packs of Magic: The Gathering (MTG... More

    We had a saying in the Navy...one of our many sayings, "Your best job was your last job" (not to be confused with the Navy SEAL motto of, "The only easy day was yesterday."). Of course when you were in that job it wasn't the best... More

    There are a lot of things that fascinate me in this world and some of those things exist in the realm of video games. One thing that fascinates me is what makes a game successful or popular...and even more than that, the small details we find in games... More

    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
  • Never Too Old For LEGOS…

    10 2

    Wow, ninety characters. That's an impressive lineup. Of course I was particularly fond of Metalbeard and his pirate ship, so I'd like to see this scene recreated in the game. Benny was a pretty cool character too.

    More
    I love LEGOS. Who doesn't? I've been playing with LEGOS about as long as I've been playing video games. And while I might not play with the actual bricks and blocks every single day, I can tell you it hasn't been all that long since I... More

    My play through of the original Half-Life was interrupted the past couple of weeks because I moved and it's taking me a lot longer to get my gaming rig set back up than I had hoped it would. But I managed to play some Half-Life tonight, and not only... More

    What did I think of the game?

    More
    Today I had the opportunity to play a game that wasn't on my RADAR (not even a little bit) and not a game I would normally buy. But I played the game with a friend and dare I say we had a jolly good time. The game was EA Sports UFC. Powered by EA... More
  • Valve Making Millions, One Penny At A Time…

    More
    I love Valve. I love their games. I love Steam. I love their games on Steam. As you may know, Valve launched their Steam Summer Sale today. It's a time of rejoicing - a time of buying dirt cheap games you'll probably never play. This behavior... More
