How do Games remind us that we are Weak and Feeble?

Do You Care for Quick Time Events?

I love Quick Time Events. There, I said it. Don’t worry; I’m aware that bad QTEs exist. After all, gamers often state categorically that they “love video games” knowing full well that bad games exist. Similarly, I’m fond of Q...   more

​School Trips to Game Worlds: Who fancies a Sci-Fi Croissant?

School Trips to Game Worlds: Where would you go?

My Journey into Shallowness – Review of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood

I don’t like reviewing games. By the time I get around to playing enough of game to review it, weeks, or even months may have past. What good is that going to do? However, what if I were to review a game that no serious game...   more

​More Reasons to be a Gamer-Teacher

A student once asked me if Richard the Lionheart was ginger (we'd just finished a lesson on the Crusades). I stated that, yes, records show that King Richard I had red hair. The student gleefully announced that he had seen Ri...   more

Time for This Old Dog to Learn Some New Tricks

Last Sunday, I attempted to trade in some games to my local GameStop. To my surprise, the storefront was abandoned, adorned with a poster stating that Little Caesar's Pizza was "Coming Soon!" My first thought, "Holy shit Litt...   more



Beyond: Two Souls (feat. Kamen Rider Fourze)

So you know that whole “turn your brain off” mentality that people throw out sometimes?  You know -- the idea that if you just go with the flow, you’ll have more fun?  I don’t believe in that.  Setting aside the fact that s...   more

Sony & TLG: The Last Broken Heart

I don't even know if this is going to be worth reading.  I'm not going to mince words, I'm emotionally affected by the subject matter of this post.  I'm hurt.  And I'm going to use lots of colorful language, loads of hyperb...   more

Devil Survivor 2 is (still) secretly brilliant.

All right, look.  Can I be honest with you guys for a second? Sometimes I feel a little iffy about drawing comparisons to other games when I’m trying to illustrate a point.  It’s an effective method, no question, but I’m w...   more

Devil Survivor 2 is secretly brilliant.
