My earilest memory is of playing a PC port of Pac-Man
on my dad's computer. My next earliest memory is of playing a PC port of Tetris
on my mom's computer. I've been happily and hopelessly into video games and everything to do with them since, and while I have my favorites - pretty much the entire Metroid
series (except, you know, that one) - there are very few good games I haven't played and enjoyed.
Now that I've been here for a few months I guess something else should go here, so: I've set upon myself a personal goal to write and post a blog at least once per week. Sometimes, meeting this deadline means that those articles are not up to the standards I would like, and I'll simply shove them away unpublished and try again next week. More rarely, they turn out great, and up they go. Even more rarely, I'll actually feel very satisfied and accomplished, and will get all excited for the loads of attention I won't be receiving. The following blog entries are ones that I believe fit into the latter category, preserved here in order of appearance for my (but quite possibly also your!) amusement and enrichement:
Battlefield 3: On Scale, Freedom, and Wookies Deus Ex: Human Revolution - David Sarif Bigger, Longer, also Harder - A Counter-Case for Longer Games Location: Darkest Africa How About a Mass Effect 3 Article with No Ending Controversy (Spoiler-free!) Quest for Blood: How Seeking Ultraviolence Showed Me the Best Side of Videogames
Also, I mantain the monthly Cblog Analytics
series, which tallies up a bunch of statistics and presents them in a simple and organized format. The results are always interesting and often surprising - all the math is done on my end, so no matter how number-phobic you might be, it's worth checking out! This year's entries are listed here: February March April May June July August
