Am I The Only One...

...who finds all this image dissecting being done by Diablo III fans to be a little depressing? Case in point: Blizzard just launched their fifth splash screen, and this time it shows the eyes, as well as what looks like the ...

 


8 Reasons Not to Buy GTA IV for your child

Hmm. I didn't even have to go into the actual game. You can read my full explanation HERE (shameless plug), but I'll summarize: Look at the box. If the game you want to buy your kids is named after a felony, and brandishes at least four firearms -- you may want to look elsewhere for your ten year-old.

Konnichiwa!

My name is James. By day I am a freelance copywriter and editor. While the perks of this job are getting to sleep 'til 2pm and working in my underwear, I've learned far more about hemorrhoid cream and proper swimming pool chlorination than I ever care to.

I guess you could say I'm a "former" video game "journalist" (though I wouldn't call myself the J word). I am the former Editor-in-Chief of Binge Gamer and I spent time writing at other blogs. I gave it up because while I love gaming and the gaming industry, I just didn't have the constitution to run my own business.

Not at the age of 23, anyways.

Let's see... apart from that I'm prior service US Army (Military Police), a stand-up comedian, a connoisseur of soft drinks and I once wrestled a cheetah.

I was victorious.
