Someone by the name of Arne has been whipping up tribute art for Shogo: Mobile Armor Division lately. Thrilled that I ain’t the only one who fondly recalls this happy marriage of anime and FPS. http://androidarts.com/Shogo/SHOGO.htm


A year later and I still can't get enough of Finishing Move's work on Crackdown 3's soundtrack. For me, it nails the feel of open-world thrills with its beats and crescendos.


Well, color me surprised, especially given the initial reaction from that reveal trailer. Reviews may still be pouring in, but this is looking like another Bumblebee and Bad Boys For Life kind of critical surprise.


Seems like a good time to break the news. I’ve assumed the role of Assistant Fiction Editor for Qu Literary Magazine. First time in an editing position, to boot. Looking forward to working with the team and populating issues with quality tales.


Been nearly three years since Atomic Heart first surfaced with concept art and a trailer. While I’m worried about the game’s development cycle, I remain cautiously optimistic. The style alone’s the kind that makes me hope there’ll be an artbook.


Happy New Year! Kept myself busy with lots of reading and writing this past holiday season. Which brings me to a question I’m curious to know your answers to: Do you have a favorite author? Personally, I can’t get enough of Sir Terry Pratchett.


Videos like this remind me that before it became... something else post-2008, COD had admirable experience goals. The intensity of #2, the pacing of MW, the thematic heft of WaW... Those remain favorites of mine thanks to their unique qualities.


Just wanted to let y'all know that I'm still lurking here and there in spite of my absence from QToid and the C-Blogs lately. Creative Writing MFA and leisurely reading have kept me plenty busy. Hanging in there. Always treasuring your company!


The Lighthouse is essentially what happens when you transplant the eerie, monochromatic vibe of A Field in England from jolly Britannia to the coastal nooks and crannies of New England. An atmospheric delight that I hope won't get overlooked.


My take on the 🇨🇦 election: Happy that the Libs kept the Tories at bay despite the minority gov't outcome. Sad that the BQ tripled their seat count. No place for tribalistic nationalism in QC. Least Bernier's out. May the NDP and Libs get along.


To every fellow Canuck planning on making yourselves heard tomorrow, I wish each one of you happy voting. If you already did so in advance polls, then I trust you made the choice best suited for your and the country’s desired purposes. Godspeed.


Watching yesterday’s TVA debate between the Canadian party leaders left me disappointed at the fact that Scheer/Trudeau/Singh were too soft on Blanchet. The Bloc’s brand of tribalistic nationalism has no place in individualistic North America.


It’s been more than a year now since I’ve first learned of Atomic Heart, and it’s yet to be dethroned as one of my most anticipated releases of 2019 and beyond. The Electric State-style art direction and world-building alone have me intrigued.


Pleasure to announce that as of late, I’ve joined the ranks of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs. Looking forward to leverage and advance the craft/trade.


Rewatched No Country For Old Men. Its “less is more” script stood the test of time in my eyes and so has my favorite scene. Deftly captures the dilemma folks face when they don’t embrace the unknown and instead hold on to ideas of former glory.


Well worth setting the day aside for. Screenplay’s a sharply penned beaut.


Off-kilter question: If you were to have someone narrate your daily exploits and big moments in life, which one would it be? Personally I’m partial to Keith Szarabajka whose gravelly cadence lends wisdom and reflection to all of his enunciations.


In my reminiscing about the seventh generation, I stumbled upon a forgotten gem: 2012’s Syndicate. As half-baked as it was, Starbreeze’s take on the IP oozed spectacle with its stylish art design and futuristic flair. Still dazzles like no other.


Feeling a rush of nostalgia for the seventh gaming generation following my NFLD trip. Out of curiosity, what’s your most fondly remembered generation? Personally leaning towards the seventh. Perfectly overlapped w/ my time in middle/high school.


Decided to take my PS3 out for a spin. Hearing those startup/confirmation tunes and glancing at the save/install data I left behind felt both nostalgic and bittersweet, a reminder of how dearly I miss and treasure the seventh console generation.


My time in Newfoundland came to a close and boy did it deliver. From the bustling St. John’s to the remote Fogo Island, Canada’s youngest province proved to be a sensory feast, one I’m proud to deem my honorary home. God guard thee Newfoundland.


This recently christened (honorary) Newfoundlander is increasingly falling in love with Canada’s most sublime province. A feast for the senses that houses treats and surprises at every turn.


Newfoundland Day 3. View of Conception Bay from Port de Grave.


A lonesome chair and flower-adorned memorial abutting the Narrows’ foggy bulwark on a Newfoundland afternoon. Walking through the misty dome made for one of the most harrowing experiences I’ve had lately.


The path to Fort Amherst near St. John’s reminds me a great deal of Silent Hill 2’s forest sequence. Fog and hazy sun make for an eerie afternoon.
