Here Comes A New Challenger
on Jan 25, 2016 at 04:45 PM
Snow. It’s a wonderful thing. I haven’t seen it in such a long time, and I haven’t felt the perfect sting of a truly cold day in years. For someone who was raised in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains and later lived near Detroit for...

on Jan 25, 2016 at 01:13 PM
Games offer us the posiblity to travel far and wide through their diverse overworlds, and whether linear or open world, long stages to short ones, what lies in there can easily makes us feel like if we were inside the game. We saw worlds only from above...
January Game Challenge: Week Four (Holy Crap, I'm Doing It!)
on Jan 25, 2016 at 11:03 AM
I don't want to get ahead of myself here, but I made some excellent progress not only on January's game challenge, but my larger challenge for the year, as well. For anyone not familiar, my hefty challenge for the year was to beat over 50 games...
How To Dress For An Interview
on Jan 25, 2016 at 10:53 AM
When I got the interview for Game Informer’s winter internship, I completely fumbled my first interaction. Ben Reeves emailed me to stop by the offices around lunch, and I misinterpreted that as an offer to interview over a bite to eat. I thought...

It's still the month of January and I'm still in a reflective mood. I put out a few blogs over the past few days showing my favorite 2015 games and my favorite non-2015 games that I played in 2015. So let's wrap up the reflection with my awards...
My Favourite Games of 2015
on Jan 24, 2016 at 02:44 AM
2015 was widely hailed as a brilliant year for video game software, but in truth I had to limit my spending throughout the year, and as a result I skipped a lot of games in favour of others. So if a game you loved is missing from this list it may very...

on Jan 23, 2016 at 10:00 PM
I'm pretty sure we all remember how we used to think when we began playing games for the first time. Things like feeling a game will end by just defeating a though boss. Believing that a certain gear will be the best a game had to offer, or that simply...

on Jan 23, 2016 at 09:26 PM
Of all the video game characters in existence, Mario is perhaps the most versatile of the bunch. He is essentially the Mickey Mouse of the gaming industry, in that he can be thrown into just about any scenario, and it somehow won't feel out of place...
10 Games of 2015 that Weren't Completely Horrendous According to Me
on Jan 23, 2016 at 02:30 PM
Last year with AAA seemingly mucking up or delaying every other big release, I came to the realization that I’ve started drifting from that market. This year, with them righting the ship, at least according to most folks, I’m confident now...

on Jan 23, 2016 at 02:26 PM
