    The Mass Effect trilogy is done. The story of Commander Shepard has been told. The Reapers came, fought, and (spoilers) were repelled. That story, although awesome, is over. There's no

    Normally I write up a "Best of" post for the cream of the year's gaming crop. However, I only bought three new releases this year. Everything else was secondhand, on sale, or old. It wouldn't be honest for me to pretend I know which... More
  • A True American Tale

    About a year ago, I finished playing the main campaign of Grand Theft Auto IV. It's one of my favorite games. The open world, satirical culture, and action-filled gameplay make a great experience. In honor of that singular experience, I have extensively edited and rewritten my original review of the game to make it more readable. Tell me what you think.

    In gaming, few series command the same level of respect as Grand Theft Auto. Rockstar's flagship franchise has been innovating and setting the industry high-water mark for years. The latest entry...

    Hey, everybody. Long time no see. Consider this a status update of sorts for those of you who haven't found my Facebook (which should hopefully be all of you). I've been quiet lately. This is my best attempt at breaking the silence. So, what's... More

    That's horrifying.

    I like to read, as mentioned previously . You can get some interesting and unique experiences from books. Sometimes, however, I find a book that's too unique. The results can be fascinating and repulsive and horrifying all at once. This happened with... More

    That's for blogging. Reviews are another matter.

    More
    As you may have noticed, I've been blogging less recently. Schoolwork is the biggest problem. Memorizing 900 terms and eight short stories doesn't leave much time for other activities. I also have been focusing more on writing reviews. After almost... More

    Apologies for posting this in the blog section. Unfortunately, GI does not have a user review section for Braid. Hence why I posted this as a blog.
