This may be the most convoluted thing I've written on here. Also minor spoilers for Mass Effect 2.
When I was fifteen, I had a concept for video game that I held onto for quite some time. My idea was that you would be a go...
The cries of the undead horde are a common sight in video games today. We've faced them alone in close quarters in small towns, we've practised genocide against them in malls, and most recently for me, I've worked together ...
Over the last couple years I've been in school and have unfortunately missed out on a few great titles that have come out. However, over the last few months I've had a great deal more time and have found myself catching up ...
Sometimes video games try to create the illusion of danger: crumbling ledges, being held up by mercenaries, or an overwhelming assortment of opponents are all used to make the player think that death has just passed over t...
Another World is a game that for years, I had known about, understood it was supposed to be good, that it was almost as old as me, and had the above image in my mind associated with it. Otherwise, my comprehension of the t...
Spoiler note:Though nothing overly specific is mentioned; Unforgiven, Final Fantasy VII, Half-Life 2, and Metal Gear Solid 3 are all discussed.
Lately I've been thinking through of a few of my favourite bosses and thinking ...
As gamers we tend crap on things quite quickly, and motion controls has been one of our favourite outhouses as of late. However, I'd like to (try to) defend motion controls. Also, click here if you don't get what the first ...
Gaming has always been a part of my family, though in varying degrees for each family member. From my mom’s casual playing of Guitar Hero to my near obsession with the entirety of gaming, we’ve all seemed to find something to...
So this blog post is mainly an attempt at me ranting and trying to think critically about games. However, I'm fairly new at this, so feel free to comment on me falling on my face at this.
With the announcement of Splinter Ce...
Warning! This is the first time I've ever attempted a blog, so sorry if it's fail.

Currently in liminal time. That's a clever sounding way to say I'm not sure what I'm doing with my life, so I find myself reading lots, working at a funeral home, laughing at my dog (for a variety of reasons), enjoying alliterations, and of course playing video games.
I also am finding that I occasionally like to write things. Trouble is I often find it difficult to actually come up with content I deem worthwhile. So, if anything does come up, I'll be sure to tell you.
Also, here's some of my favorite games I've played over the last little while.
Fallout 1 & 2
Metal Gear Solid Series
Halo: Combat Evolved
Sam & Max
Far Cry 2
