About
So, yeah. Sup. How you be? I be good. I like the videogames. They are pretty cool. You played the Rock Band? I like the Rock Band. I sing "Don't Look Back in Anger" by Oasis on expert. It's pretty epic. I like to write articles and stuff. You'll see them around on the internets. I also like school. I read British Romanticism and write a lot of essays. It's all good, cause in the San Francisco Bay Area, you meet a lot of people with even lamer educational skills, so it's cool.

I have a pet bird. His name is Merry, and when I see him, he runs to me like a puppy dog and sits on my knee. This makes us both sleepy, so we take naps.

Also, I think chickens are amazing (don't ask why), so I'm just going to post a bunch of chicken pics here now. kthxbai.











Also, he's me shaking hands with a monkey in Santa Monica

Hands-on: Rush'n Attack: Ex-Patriot

Rush'n Attack: Ex Patriot has a major problem when it comes to plot. You see, it's not the late 1980s anymore, so the rampant fear of Soviet Russia doesn't hang over us like a red curtain. So Rush'n Attack: Ex Patri...

Hands-on: Hard Corps: Uprising

When we last saw Hard Corps: Uprising at Comic-Con, our Dale North came away quite impressed with the flashy sidescrolling shooter from Arc System Works and Konami. After all, the stunning 2D animation makes this title p...

Impressions: Fighters Uncaged

As much as Microsoft would like to indicate, Kinect is a device that is going to leave most hardcore gamers in the cold...at least initially. With the upcoming launch set for November 4 in the States, most of the expected lau...

Ubisoft announces Beyond Good and Evil HD

Ever since Ubisoft announced Beyond Good and Evil 2 in 2008, gamers have been dying to see what exactly Ubisoft was going to do with the franchise. It's been two years since then, and little has been discussed with the g...

Hands-on: Superstars V8 Racing

Everyone says that digital downloads are the future of gaming, but so many publishers seem to be afraid of making their product strictly digital. That's not stopping O-Games from releasing a full retail racing title onto the ...

Hands-on: Dungeon Defenders

I know the guys from Reverb Communications pretty well. After all, as the PR representatives for many games like Rock Band and Deadly Premonition, they act as the middle man between publishers and games journalists. A great g...

Hands-on: Donkey Kong Country Returns

Returning to Donkey Kong Country is like returning to an old friend. Many of us have fond memories of rolling through the jungles of DK's island in, at the time, one of the most visually impressive games ever made. There were...

Preview: Apache: Air Assault

Apache: Air Assault is a special beast. While it might be considered a helicopter version of Gaijin Entertainment's IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, a military aerial simulator released in 2009, it is clearly a differ...

Hands-on: Dead Space 2 multiplayer

Adding multiplayer to a game that is primarily known for the single-player experience is always a finicky deal. Take a look at Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, or BioShock 2. While both of these titles were able to bring so...

Hands-on: Claptrap's New Robot Revolution

It's been about a year since the first time I saw Borderlands. Taking place at some quirky bar in the famous Haight district in San Francisco, the oddness of the place fit the game, and I wasn't expecting much. At that point ...
