Fill your ears w/ win #4: I leveled up!

I leveled up today. Level 35 human, level 30 gaming enthusiast, This means I have to play this song first: Now I'm going to destroy everything and build my own empire of death, just give me all your magicite (and cake) and...

Fill your ears w/ win #3: Trick or Treat, its Granny Rags!

OK, making this post has been rather chaotic. I wrote it for last week but got picky and decided to save all this Halloween stuff for Halloween because it was all spooky, haunted, eerie, depressing or ghoulish-sounding. So I ...

Surviving the zombie apocalypse.

I don't really see why people get excited about zombie games. I see zombies every day and while they don't shuffle, moan or chew their own lips off they are still zombies. I've had enough of zombies, I don't really need them ...

So I hear Bioware needs a new protagonist...

Dear Bioware, Why don't you return my calls about auditions dates and times? After so many years of working with you and my extensive resume which spans thousands of games, I'm kinda crushed that it seems you don't want me ...

Pitches for Playstation commercials from my dream journal

I think we all need to be honest about how Sony advertises Playstation things. Once you get past the commercials with game footage or the Kevin Butler ones that persuade by being entertaining in a Colbert sort of way, what yo...

Let me fill your ears with win #2: Code of Backflip Nocturne Edition

Last week's blog was fairly well-received and decided I'd make this a weekly thing. Easy and fun to do. We've had a couple other good music-based blogs in the last week by Occams Electric Toothbrush and ShadeOfLight. Go forth...

Allow me to fill your ears with win.

Ahhhhh, new blog format. So fresh, so shiny. How I've longed to use it since Niero showed off the beta and I saw it could let me embed videos to my heart's content. Now people can see just what the hell I'm babbling about dir...

The secret past of Style Savvy's developer, Syn Sophia.

I've posted before that I'm rather obsessive about create-a-character modes. When Skyrim's Dawnguard expansion came out the option to remake my character's face and body shape was more than welcomed and resulted in this fabul...

"The best launch line-up since the Dreamcast!"

If there's an odd thing to say about launch line-ups, its that a launch line-up is "The best launch line-up since the Dreamcast." I see it happen with several people regarding any launch since, well, after the Dreamcast. Appa...

Music that made a summer - Sega's Quartet

Sometimes a song gets stuck in your head. Sometimes it get stuck there for over 20 years, Such is the case of Sega's Quartet for me, composed by the relatively unsung Katsuhiro Hayashi. He was a master of FM Synthesis that wo...

A silent protagonist begs you to speak in fighters

Its been so quiet on the blogs today. Kind of like when I play fighters online and there's no one talking. Actually, there's almost always no one talking, but perhaps there are two people in two different places swearing at a...

Why a Pokémon MMO would be a bad idea.

Seems like every few Pokémon topics or so someone says something along the lines of "Nintendo should totally make Pokémon into an MMO, it would make loads of money!" I'll admit it sounds cool on paper, but it's a terrible ...

Just a thought: A Solid Samurai

Metal Gear Solid is a samurai epic. Yep, it totally is. Whether this was Hideo Kojima's intention or not, the original Metal Gear Solid is very much a post-WWII samurai epic. Think Akira Kurosawa's most celebrated films or ...

Faces by Galathil: My Dovahkiin makeover

Today my Dovahkiin, Nia Mistquiver, entered Riften's Ratway to be greeted by a surly high elf that said Nia was ugly and would fix it for 1,000 septims. Knowing high elves are snobby and mean and being one that snipes Thalmor...

I'll wreck your Ralph... or something...

I haven't blogged much of late, as my laptop is out of commission. I'm short on cash to fix it and can't upload images from the iPhone 4. I do have a blog I've been drafting, but as one might imagine it gets tiresome inputtin...

Playstation All-Stars deserved to be a stand-out, not a knock-off.

Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royale deserved better, that is really what it boils down to. The problem really isn't that SuperBot quite clearly ripped off Smash Bros. as much as it is that by ripping-off Smash Bros. they've...

Is it safe to break out Kuribo's Shoe again?

So we heard earlier today that Miyamoto was, rather than head up remake projects himself, looking to perhaps pick up where the likes of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past left off - meaning a new Zelda or a game like it ...

Sparkles, rainbows, lollipops and a whole ton of breasts... er... QUESTIONS!

Do you find Juliet Starling's portrayal to to be sexist? Have you ever played No More Heroes? Have you ever played Shadows of the Damned? Do you even know who Suda 51 is? Did you swear up and down that you'd buy his games i...

Will US gamers put their money where their mouth is on Xenoblade?

So tomorrow is finally the day Xenoblade Chronicles is released in the US. Its a game I've wanted ever since it was first revealed. I have a soft spot for games that let me explore vast worlds, you see, and while open world R...

10 things you never asked for from The Silent Protagonist

Aw hell, I guess I'll join in on the fun. Plus I haven't blogged in a while and I could use a spontaneous topic. It will be interesting to see if I can even get to ten things about me. (1) I'm 34. No one quite believes me...

I want to be able to control movies and skip the story bits

I want movies to be more like video games. i want to be able to control the actors, participate in violent combat and skip over the parts of the story I don't like. This would reduce the Star Wars prequel trilogy to a bunch o...

Fools & money, quickly parted: Vita Memory card speeds tested

So someone finally bothered to put PS Vita cards to the test on the value level. I had my suspicions about the Vita memory cards before playing the demo kiosks and was rather puzzled regarding the large load times of Vita gam...

Never say video games aren't productive, OK?

You know, they say there are no stupid questions. I don't know who "they" are or how they got the authority to say that, but they're wrong. There are stupid questions and things you probably shouldn't say, lest you want to pr...

Tales from Skyrim: Excerpts from the journal of Irene Grogdrowner

Day 1 Today was the day I was supposed to be executed. Just as I laid my head on the chopping block and got ready for the Big Sleep, a dragon showed up and tore up the town of Helgen. Not the stay of execution I was hoping ...

Thanksgiving: Thankful when Black Friday is over

There is one day in the year that I am rather happy is only one day in the year. That day is Black Friday. For people looking for bargains its the best day of the year. For those of us just attending because of our job, it i...

Aquisition: The dragonborn do it better

Often when I turn up for a midnight sale its seldom for the intended game. The games I really want tend to clash with what the mainstream gamer wants so something like Catherine or Shadows of the Damned never gets that midni...

MMO Stories: A Tarutaru's Tale

It had been another lonely afternoon in Lower Jeuno. A young Tarutaru named Foobar stared longingly at his invite flag in the chocobo rental stable and sighed. Still no invites, not any real ones, anyway. "No one wants me,"...

iBlogging from work: The Big Three's Problems

I thought I would try something new today - blogging on the go since I just got an iPhone4 and all. Just some thoughts as I wander around work. I often have a problem with being concise when I blog and it starts to cut into o...

Online Passes: Warner Bros., you confuse me.

OK, so I picked up Batman Arkham City this week, but I still hate the online pass thing. Now, before you jump on me and call me some hypocrite here, hear me out. I'm not going to parrot the incredibly lame "I support the dev...
