This was a triumph... (A Portal 2 Review)

When The Orange Box was announced a few years ago, it presented a line-up of Valve’s finest arsenal. Not only were you getting Half-Life 2 on console, a title which would have sold well all by itself, but you were getting b...

 





Motion Control: Wii Punch Children

I have to admire any peripheral that inadvertently causes child abuse. That's not to say I'm a staunch advocate of waving a makeshift Nintendo wand around, or thrusting the PS3' glowing, blue dildo in opposite directions to...

 



Digital Distribution: Access vs. Ownership

We're all moving towards an age where online content servers are the status quo, handling our data and distributing our entertainment. Quite quickly the term "cloud" has sprung up to support technology that serves this kind...

 


An Englishman in NBA2K11

I just committed a backcourt violation, and I have no idea what the fuck that is, or how I made it happen. The only things I see even remotely close to the backs of the court are the mascots, and I'm curious how either one of...

 


Thinking Vertically in Uncharted 3 Beta

Note: I know the beta is now available for everyone (not that it wasn't technically anyway), I just wrote this article a week or so ago when that shit was still on PSPlus. Be it by astute opportunity ceasing, or merely fanta...

 


About Lou Chouone of us since 8:49 AM on 12.19.2007

My first name is Lou, but my second name isn't Chou. That's a bit I stole from an amazing movie called "All About Lily Chou Chou" to round off my gaming handle.



Like seemingly 90% of the internet, I aspire to write about video games professionally. The culture, community, and to some extent the industry surrounding gaming are something I'd like to live from day to day.

I've been playing video games since I was about 3. My older brother traded 2 packs of cigarettes for his friend's Commodore 64. His friend was ludicrously rich, so it was a pretty amazing deal. I used to play a lot of Paperboy and Batman on that thing. The latter would give me a fucking headache though, they only used, like, 2 colors when they developed that thing.



The best game I've ever played is Final Fantasy VII. I'm sorry I can't pick something obscure and cool, but it had a profound effect on me. I mean, to the point where I was having FFVII-based dreams every other night. I fucking loved that game, and I wouldn't dare play it again now. It needs to stay in that period of time for me.

I have a personal gaming blog, which may well live here:
