Hello, I'm Occams. Ask me a Question

I have enjoyed the past Ask Me Anything blogs posted by good and kindly folks.  So I would like to embrace this moment and put it to you, fair reader, to ask me a question.  It can be about anything, video game related or not.  I am an open book.  An open book with pages stuck together and coffee ring stains on the cover.  So fire away.  I am here for you.

I love you all, and that's why I'm retiring from Dtoid

[Pictured: The Dtoid community in 2011. My first PAX.] This is unbelievably hard. [HA! Already with the boner jokes. But really.] In fact, it may be the most difficult decision I've ever come to. But it's been weigh...

Occam Thoughts: Cream in My Coffee

It’s a slow day here on Destructoid and in the waking world.  It’s nice when things slow down but sometimes the quiet gets to be a little too much.  So you try to fill the quiet with sound.  So...
