This is kind of a strange position I've fallen into. I was tempted, but never really thought I would buy this game. What actually happened was that I started talking video games a lot with a guard at the book store where I w...
I wanted to explain my last blog post. While it was harsh, I meant it. Whether or not SCMRPG is art, I wanted to point out the hypocritical, circular, and reformative logic sandorasbox employs in their argument. Despite the...
Why yes. Nicely put. That is a very nice distillation of what that game is. It's not like you didn't just feed the flames of arbitration and madness. What in the wide world of art was I thinking? Blast!
How did I not think...
It's a pointy, uncomfortable topic. You can use it to bite off more than you can chew, but most people use it to pick through leftovers. It's not too fun. I myself made the decision about this pretty recently. My decision w...
There's a specific design flaw of the PSPgo I feel I have to point out to Sony. It is a particularly worrying design flaw due to the fact that it can kill your PSP Go. I am not saying this out of jest. Do not take it as a p...
In the Venetian sculpture exhibit at the National Gallery of Art there is a helmet, or burgonet as the Italians might have called it back in the day. This burgonet brought me back to a simpler time. A time when PS2s were st...
Space Orks. The anti-space marine. They're a clanky, unrefined race that stretch the limits of realism in terms of space-travelling war machines. In Dawn of War 2, they have vehicle units that spew smoke and appear to be Fr...
So I finally got back into playing Okami on the Wii. It's really a surprising game. I find the combat to be repetitive and the dialogue to be a bit questionable. A lot of the items and weapons are useless. Even the graphica...
The question I want to pose in this piece is, "why play 60 hours of multiplayer, when I could play 60 hours of numerous other games?" Where did my life go when I connected to XBL? My eyes have burned bright images of gunfir...
It just occurred to me that is this what Video Game Journalism is for? To report objectively whether these hyped games are over hyped or not. I'm sure Sterling (in reference to the recent Midway post) and the rest get tha...
Spending approximately 5 hours and nineteen minutes getting horribly thrashed attempting to complete the same last chapter in a game certainly affords one the time to fully appreciate the influences of this wonderful zombie...
Be grateful for the time you will have to finally finish the Punch Out! game you downloaded to your WIi. Be grateful that a lot of classes are canceled this week and finals are going to be a breeze. Most of all, be gratef...
About mikeyed One of us since 11:19 PM on 07.11.2007
I am a professional writer and web designer living in East Lansing, MI. I hail from Dearborn, MI. I listen to Modest Mouse, Joanna Newsom, The Cure, Dead Kennedys, TMBG, and Tom Waits. I primarily consume grilled cheese and green tea. My first video game memory is playing Pong, but I'm not that old, just fortunate. I've grown up with video games and they've sort of grown up with me, not really.
