New Daily Runs of Spelunky, Nuclear Throne, and Risk of Rain

This week, I've started posting daily runs of some of my favorite procedurally generated games to my YouTube channel. Today had a rough start to the morning, with a little bit of disappointment over reading reviews for†Castl...   more



Dtoid Book Club: Ready Player One Week 1 (-ish)

Sorry for the delay in getting this week's Dtoid Book Club post up. I'm blaming Dale entirely for this one, as I've been waiting to get his feedback on our current book, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. But I can'ts waits no...   more



Introducing the Dtoid Book Club!

A few times in recent months, I've found myself trailing off on episodes of Podtoid to talking about books I'm reading or recommend books to others. It's prompted some people to approach me and suggest that I do some kind o...   more



Tokyo Travel Log: What I bought

Hey gang. I did make it home from Tokyo and I'd apologize for not having done more posts while there but, truth be told, there wasn't much more to tell. The rest of the week was dominated by work-related things, with the ex...   more



TGS Travel Log: Touring, shopping and lots of walking

(Just as a heads-up, at least one photo in this blog is really, really, NSFW.) My dogs, they are barking. While Tokyo Game Show doesn't start until later in the week, we wanted to get here a little bit early so we'd have a d...   more

TGS Travel Log: Arriving, sleeping

Sitting on the plane with about nine hours remaining in the flight. This flight rather sucks, if I'm being perfectly honest. There's no internet service available, for starters, which surprised the hell out of me. I would t...   more



TGS Travel Log: Getting there in one (conscious) piece

As some of you may be aware, I'm headed to Japan this week to attend the Tokyo Game Show. If this were a standard kind of trip, I would be ramping up my Twitter usage, communicating my thoughts about the trip as they happen...   more



I think I need to make a game

I'm not saying that I'd like to create a game one day, that it would be fun to try and turn what I've learned over my years of playing and thinking about games into one of my own creation. This feels more serious. I'm struc...   more



I'm watching Buffy and Jim Sterling is a right bastard

Last week, I appeared on an episode of Podtoid. At some point in the proceedings, Jim Sterling made some comment regarding Buffy the Vampire Slayer and was shocked when I professed to have no particular interest in the seri...   more



Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut DLC, my $0.02 *spoilers*

The original ending to Mass Effect 3 was pretty bad, to put it bluntly. The trilogy emphasized player choice, bringing disparate peoples together as one for a greater good, and the bonds of friendship--until the final 30 minu...   more

The "two hour" experience (short blog)

For a game to be successful it must respect the playerís time. As I get older Iím finding it increasingly difficult to invest my time in video games. Iím not a busy man, no, in fact I sometimes have sufficient time to game....   more



What Is Gameplay?

What is gameplay? Debates about this very word have caused controversy in the last couple of years in the gaming community. More often than not the attacks have been aimed at games that proclaim themselves as being ďartistic....   more



Fuite

I slide, glide, and glitch into your life. Why do you love me, if Iím so imperfect? My identity is typical Ė shield, sword, hammer, spells. I talk to you, repeating sameness until you leave. The world I give you is beautiful...   more

Diary of a Breton: journey to Solitude (part 2)

Iím starting to believe Iím the only one who has changed. Itís simple, but an unpleasant feeling. But I must finally realize that I am subject to these sudden transformations. Nothing new has happened. I sit here in Winterh...   more

Diary of a Breton: journey to Solitude (part 1)

Awake. I started my journey in the forest, not far from some nameless town. Itís nameless because I didnít bother to remember it! The town itself, let me admit, is ugly. It had a strange smell. You really donít need much ti...   more

Helpless (short blog)

I was 16-years-old at the time. It was about 11 PM. Both my parents were working and didnít come home until midnight. My older brother was out attending a party, and I had the place all to myself. I made myself some microwave...   more



Are you afraid of the dark?

Two years ago I decided to read 120 Days of Sodom by Marquis De Sade. I only made it halfway through the book before I decided not to finish it - the book was simply too disturbing to read. I thought I can handle the dark ta...   more



Criticizing the critics

Reviewing the reviewer and reviewing the score is a rather controversial topic. People seem to never be satisfied with a score a game they admire received; itís either too high or too low. The comments posted on any review f...   more



I think I may have a problem

Everyone loves a familiar face, no? Someone you can relate and know inside and out. Most people have fear of the new and undiscovered, but always champion familiarity. As a literary major, my classes demand me to read and ana...   more

Game + Book = <3

Spoilers for Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and Castle in the Mist. Their cries would not reach that ancient castle perched upon the cliff at the end of the world, far to the west where the sun sank after its daily journey. Th...   more

Game + Book = <3


I think we're going to be friends

My school isnít bad. Nor is it great. It fits right in the middle of mediocrity. The school isnít a prime example of excellence or a defective environment of undesirables. Itís just there. Itís not ugly or pretty. Itís not cl...   more



Gamers are going crazy

You know whats lame? This review is lame. I found the ign review to be much more helpful and most reviews by ign are horrible. All u do is bash about how bad the game is. It clearly didn't suit your tastes for a srpg but that...   more



Demonís Souls: An Allegory for Life

What is this place? The gamer is told itís where the dead communicates. Itís dark and damp. A slow and moody soundtrack plays and gives the gamer a certain type of calmness and reassurance that youíre safe in this world. Th...   more



Why the 3DS price cut is upsetting.

Nintendo recently announced an $80 price drop on the 3DS, taking the price from $250 to $170. This was done in response to poor sales, and they're selling their hardware at a loss for the first time in many years. They're com...   more

Downloadables: The petal of life

I visit her every now and then. She holds my hand with a strong grip. We run through the grass and laugh. We sometimes sit by a tree and talk. I lay my head on her lap and start to tell her stories of my life. I tell her my p...   more



Why I like linear games

Iíve been without a current generation home console for almost a year now. During this year Iíve become a lover of handheld gaming. I finally bought myself an Xbox 360 four days ago, and Iím starting to regret my decision. N...   more



Your game is kiddy!

The dreaded word ďkiddyĒ is often used as an insult to certain type of games; mostly games made by Nintendo. I question the people who have a need to express their distaste for anything ďkiddy.Ē Should we insult these ďkiddyĒ...   more



Custom covers for Borderlands

I enjoyed the absolute hell out of Borderlands right up until that last expansion released and I lost any and all desire to play the game. But that doesn't change how much love I have for the time when I had a lot of love for...   more



Do games have to be fun?

Do games have to be fun? Well, in my opinion they do. But there are some individuals that disagree with this opinion. Sometime itís best to agree to disagree, but I still fail to see how an individual can enjoy gaming withou...   more

Deadly Premonition custom cover

Been some time since I got around to doing a custom game cover. When I first started making these, Deadly Premonition was always at the top of my list. I just couldn't settle on what I wanted to attempt. My first idea was ...   more
