    I like comic books (but this blog isn't entirely about them - read on). That shouldn’t be a huge surprise since lots of gamers like comic books. It’s just part of our geeky nature. My favorite comic book is Amazing Spiderman #129. I like... More

    Some colleagues and I were sitting around the virtual water cooler reminiscing about days of old and how things have changed in the wonderful world of video gaming. Since we are fans of first person shooters, naturally that is the direction the conversation... More

    I tend to stray away from “I have an idea for a great game” blogs because, for one, as unfortunate as it is, I don’t have the ability to transition it from a great idea to a real tangible concrete product. The other issue is, I’ve... More

    ...or your tax dollars hard at work. I saw this story in the news and was so caught off guard I had to read it again. And again. Apparently the government has tagged Microsoft to develop a "game" that allows the player (I suppose that means... More

    On April 16, 2010 Daryl F. Gates passed away after a battle with bladder cancer. While some may remember him as the controversial Chief of Police for the somewhat iconic (or notorious, depending on your view) Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), others... More

    I normally don't make lists. Certainly not video gaming lists...but tonight is an exception. Ten things I wonder about in the wonderful world of video games. 1. Do they play video games on the International Space Station (ISS)? 2. What games will... More

    Once upon a time...

    One of the key ingredients of any successful entertaining single player game is story. The flashiest graphics in the world coupled with the coolest toys imaginable won't save a game with a shoddy story. Besides a plot, a good story should have some colorful characters who engage in equally colorful dialogue, (not always though, look at Half Life - Gordon Freeman has never spoken a word); a good story should have a sense of direction so players know what they're supposed to be doing and why; a good story should draw the desired emotional response from the player.

    So, I'm a little miffed tonight. The blog I had been planning to post just disappeared. I think the Internet ate it and I'm hoping I have it backed up offsite. Unfortunately I won't be able to check until tomorrow. I was trying to pull something... More

    I am a huge fan of Team Fortress 2. From it's solid game play to its cartoon quality graphics that give some Pixar movies a run for their money. The game is a classic. Clearly the question of realism won't apply to every game we have available... More

    Anyone remember the old "pick your own path" or "choose your own adventure" books. Most were based on Dungeons and Dragons scenarios, but a few also were written after a science fiction role playing game that I played called Star Frontiers... More

    If I were asked to name my favorite video game developer, I don’t know that I could, but Valve would certainly be in running for consideration. Valve has not only produced some solid games both in appearance and in game play. Perhaps one of the... More
