    As an avid gamer and someone who has tinkered in the realm of video game development I am fascinated with the mechanics behind level design, map construction and the quality control measures used to evaluate the product from production to implementation... More

    If saying Halo is my favorite game ever makes me a fan boy, well then...I guess I'm a fan boy. I just like the game, everything about it. I'm not one of those maniacal fan boys that obsessively talks and talks (or in my case blogs and blogs) about... More

    If you are a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 fanboy or just the opposite...you are a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 anti-fanboy, then you might not want to read this blog. And if you choose not to read this blog because I am going to refer to this game... More

    Better late than never. First things first - apparently a few of you fell for my little joke about last week's Member Herding being the last one. For the record, that was just a joke. I wanted to see who was paying attention. As long as there is an... More

    Since work has been extremely busy the past week and I've spent most of my normal game playing time hammering out a blog just in time for bed, tonight I am going to take a break from blogging and actually play some video games. I know, right?!? Does... More

    I don't normally blog about the whole "I have a great idea for a video game"...but tonight I am. Kind of. I guess. You see, I was watching Cops or one of those "Cops" like shows and for whatever reason I started thinking about... More

    I just finished playing a little of the H.A.W.X. 2 demo which subsequently inspired this blog. Having never played the first one, I will say the second go at it was beautiful...but the controls left a lot to be desired. Oh hey...guess what. You don't... More

    I don't know what it is...I just know it is.

    I'm missing the next big thing. I don't know what it is...I just know it is. Every now and then...from time to time, something comes along and blows the gaming community away. Leaves us with mouths open; jaws dropped; a look of disbelief on our... More
