  • I Hate Everything About You...



    Does anyone even remember that song or Ugly Kid Joe? Am I that old? Anyway... I'm not a Psychologist or a Psychiatrist or any other kind of 'ist...I did take a Social Deviance class in college and thought a lot of the fundamentals and principles... More
  • When Video Game Characters Retire...



    There was a piece written a week or so ago that discussed the merits of retiring ongoing video game series that have run their course; games that experienced fame and fortune but have been on the decline in the latest iterations of the series. It made... More

    I received my latest edition of Game Informer in the mail yesterday. Before I dive into the blog, let me provide a brief historical synopsis of my magazine reading credentials. As a gamer with 25+ years of gaming, I've read my fair share of game related... More
  • Fresh Coat of Paint…



    Some of my regular readers know that in the weekly Member Herding blog, I ask random questions to the person being interviewed. Sometimes...many times...I ask the questions I do because it's something I'm thinking about myself, like this particular... More
  • Is GameStop Evil (Part 4 of 4) Extra Services + the Future…



    The fourth and final part. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little relieved. Not just because interest seems to have tapered off a bit, but because I’m always pleased when I set out to publish a series and am able to see it through... More
  • Is GameStop Evil (Part 3 of 4) Trade In Policy…



    See…this is why I said in my Blogging for Dummies blog – “never do a series”. Don’t get me wrong, the views and responses have been fantastic, but it takes a toll on you after awhile, especially when it’s such a serious... More
  • Member Herding 06 of XX



    This week's candidate was a bit of a stranger, but one that I was at least somewhat familiar with, having read some of his previous blogs. It doesn't take much to figure out he has a passion for anime and cosplay. I also think he is one of the... More
  • Is GameStop Evil (Part 2 of 4) Pre-ordering…



    I’m not going to dilly dally with a summarization of Part 1. You might want to read it though to understand the background for the rest of this blog. A few points of clarification…I’m hoping if I open with them they’ll get read... More
  • Is GameStop Evil (Part 1 of 2)…



    I think it’s only fair to open with my perspective…let me say that again… my perspective … beforehand, so you can see where I stand and decide whether this blog is worth your time or not. But before I do, let me say this…... More
  • Caught Me With My Keyboard Down...



    I have to be honest with y'all...I'm not prepared for tonight's blog. You caught me AFK. It was my first day back at work after nearly 2 weeks of vacation and I had a brazilian emails to go through. On top of that, I have 2 college writing... More

    One of the great things about Netflix is the ability to watch things you might not otherwise ever rent or come across. Last night, I watched this hilarious standup comic. I don't remember his name, but he told this funny joke about video games. "I... More
  • The End is Near...



    So, the Engineer update came out for Team Fortress 2 a few days ago and I’ve been…uh…rather busy…or preoccupied. Stayed up way too late, had a busy day…my evening jog kicked my butt and now I’m a little grumpy and... More
