Here's stuff what I have been doing a bit - the daring sequel

One of the last things I posted up in this bitch was some dumb video gaming content I've done for a Student Television Station. Here is some more of that. There'd be more, but I'd like to graduate (and get back into those u...

A Practical Guide to the Gamer Genocide

I am sorry if this offends you. I'm even more sorry if it doesn't offend you, though. The idea for this piece arose from conversation between two silly people and, as something born from silliness, it is silly. I do not endor...

Here's a Video thing what I have been doing a bit

Anybody who knows me well enough or is unfortunate to follow me on Twitter may have noticed I've been doing a lot of Student Media outside of my course. Because it's ridiculous fun and full of great people. One thing I've b...

Gaming with Tarvu

I don't often find the time, bandwidth, computational resources or microsoft subscription fees to play online with folks much these days, but there was a time when I'd run the European part of Friday Night Fights. Attendanc...

Tarviews: Unsurprising, Undepicted, and it wasn't even the Wii U this time!

I dislike writing shawtblawgs, but it's been a while and there's rarely anything topical worth writing about. Hell, this was a waste of time too. I'm going to go back to bitching about the industry in private until it's good...

Disappointment: Portal 2

Tarviews: The Mass Effect Galaxy at War

Since the main meat of Mass Effect 3 is going to remain a touchy subject for the foreseeable future, I would like to take some time to discuss the multiplayer component. I was one of the people who laughed at the the concep...

What I Want in 2012: South Park

(My Header image for this was lost during the October 2012 site update, blame Niero!) (Also, it's highly amusing how this is now due out in 2014 and could very well be terrible.) When I was a kid, I had an older brother. I ...

Modifications: Rewriting History

I don't particularly play games with mods, I haven't been a PC gamer for most of the years I have been gaming and in that time I've played with maybe a handful of mods. I'm really more of a PC tweaks kinda guy! However, ear...

MMO Stories: Prattle battle

I shall preface this by stating that I am in no way an MMO gamer, nor a fan of them. The few MMOs I have played have not offered up gameplay that I find particularly scintillating and have only really been able to appreciat...

Sims 3 played like an RPG by a strange persontoid.

One of the things that amused me overnight in Superior Skypetoid was a certain member who shall remain nameless playing Sims 3 after a recent attempt by Juani to simulate 8 of us living together, having made a sim that perf...

Something snarky about 3D and the 3DS...

Yeah, I'm hung over- I couldn't come up with a decent title for this. Just a brief mention on the current fad of 3D- can it die already? I have no freakin' interest in this stuff. Just as TV manufacturers have found a way to...

Obsession, for Geeks.

Yeah, that's why PC's don't dominate gaming anymore...

Admittedly, I'm coming pretty late to the party when it comes to finally having a desktop PC capable of running modern games. The entry cost seemed exorbitant, the specs always shifted and it appeared that support for PC-only...
