    I have a confession to make. I haven’t played Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater until very recently. In fact, I have barely played any Metal Gear before Snake Eater. So now that I’ve played Snake Eater, I can safely say that it just might be... More

    I’m doing it again. Another 31/31. I did my first one back in October, then a second horrible attempt one year ago, and did a third 31/31 back in July. So I figured this would be a good time to redeem myself from last year’s absolute disaster... More

    You know, I miss something in a lot of modern games. From AAA franchises like Call of Duty to indie gems such as Papers Please, very few games are focused on anything other than doom and gloom. When I’m sad, I don’t want to make agonizing... More

    A month ago, I wrote a six-part blog series about how I felt the modern FPS was in decline. Fun, singleplayer experiences have been replaced with somewhat annoying multiplayer shooters such as Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4. So imagine my surprise... More

    Sometimes in shooters, guns just don’t cut it. Because when an enemy charges at you, shotgun in hand, it’s easier (and much more stylish) to just stick them with a melee weapon. Melee weapons are close-ranged devastators that your protagonist... More

    Today may be Halloween, but a buttload of candy and some horrible attempts at being scared isn’t what makes this day important to me. No, one year ago, I finished my first 31/31 without missing a day. Without the encouragement, I doubt I would be... More

    Yarr me harties! Today will be a day I spend in the oceans of Assassins Creed IV, engrossing myself in the pirate experience. Pirates are the swashbuckling icons who sail the seven seas and plunder towns for loot. They’re not in games as much as... More
