I am the most positive and forgiving person on the planet. When I got punched in the face by a bully in the 5th grade I actually apologized to him for hurting his fist on my large pumpkin head. Then I proceeded to check on hi...

I'm generally testy about the topic of videogames being made into movies, as they are rarely much better than spending the night gazing into the ass of a horse. I have to admit, however, I'm beyond testy over the news that ru...

There's a difference between looking like a moron and just being stupid. Uwe Boll has crossed that line with his usual dignity and aplomb many a time, and each time I hope without reason it may be his last. In a recent interv...
I think it's safe to say that I like to play videogames; I wouldn't be here writing this if I didn't. And I'm all for competition, be it professional first-person shooter play or more casual play in someone's living room. But...
