    XCOM 2 is here! Lots of you are playing it! Lots of you are failing miserably! It's okay. That's part of that series' twisted fun factor. In fact, that's something I think can be applied to the strategy game genre as a whole: it's really good at making losing just as interesting and... More

  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: What's The Hardest Puzzle You've Ever Solved In A Game?

    I'm playing through The Witness right now. I'm really bad at The Witness.

  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: Do Multiple Delays On A Game Discourage You?

    When a game is delayed, it's typically a good thing in the end.

    You ever have a game that everybody wouldn't stop talking about and then when you finally got around to playing it, for whatever reason, you couldn't even make that much progress? It hadn't aged well. It was overrated. Something about it rubbed you the wrong way. So on, so forth. I've... More
