About


This community rules. Thanks to wanderingpixel for the above!


Greetings, Programs!

I am a 34 year old cubicle monkey living in Austin, TX. with my lovely wife of 2 years, Dawn. And yes, we are acutely aware of the cheesiness of the rhyme scheme. And no, it doesn't bother us when people make fun of us for being so saccharine, because we are both huge dorks in our spare time. Being happy in life gives your character +1 million XP towards the "not caring about other people's opinions" skill.




Above : Me from my theatre days. Puppy Licks says it makes me look like Kefka.

Likes : sense of humor, intelligence, creativity, the ability to argue without fighting, not taking one's self too seriously.

Dis-Likes : console crusaders, people who are cruel on the internet because they are too timid to express themselves in real life, people who cannot separate facts from opinions, Fox News, onions.

Review: inFAMOUS 2

In 2009, Sucker Punch answered a few questions I had been asking myself for years. What would happen if Sly Cooper had a messenger bag and a Misfits of Science-like ability to channel lightning through his hands? What if Bent...   more

Preview: Civilization World

If game development were a tech-tree, then unlocking strategy gaming (an early tech), social media, and e-commerce would allow for the creation of 2K Games and Firaxis' most recent incarnation of the Civilization series, Civi...   more

Review: Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP

Trying to describe the experience of Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is a lot like the experience of playing the game itself. Depending on what angle you're looking at it from, you'll get an entirely different perspect...   more

Allegory of the Cave Story

Plato would have absolutely loathed video games. It seems crazy to one who has come to know and love the medium, but one of history's most venerated thinkers and teachers would stand proudly in the corner of Jack Thompson and...   more

An extended interview with Monaco's Andy Schatz

Trying to play Monaco at PAX, let alone talk to the developer at length, was a practical impossibility if you didn't have a lot of time on your hands. The small booth housing Andy Schatz's IGF-winning title and Chris Hecker's...   more

Monaco dev: press gives mainstream games a pass

As people who cover games, it's easy to get complacent in the roles of question-asker, judgement-maker, and opinion-haver. It's nice to have the tables turned and see how the people we talk about all the time feel about the w...   more

Monaco dev: successful indies are "obsessive workers"

Maybe it's because I live in a city with a sky-high number of hippies per capita, but my default image of indie developers has always been a slackerific one. I always envision short bouts of coding casually sandwiched in-betw...   more

Review: Shoot to Kill

I look forward to playing iPhone shooters about as much as I look forward to my first prostate exam, because I imagine they’re quite similar. There’s an awkwardly painful use of touch immediately followed by feeli...   more

Review: Civilization V

Civ V multiplayer makes turn-based pick up the pace

I’ve always enjoyed the leisurely pace of turn-based strategy games like the Civilization series. Being an enthusiastic (if not overly competent) chess player for most of my life, I like being able to deliberate and mul...   more
