What Happened After

 Warning: The blog is long and rough. If you want to understand some of its context, please read "Thinking Out Loud".  My manager at the time threw his hands up in the air and told me, "Look it wasn't my decision and I don't...

 
 
 

[NVGR] Drinking Out Loud

 Warning: This blog is a bit dark, so skip it if you're having a good day. It's amazing how angry people get when you try to convince them to just get in a taxi when they've had 15 beers and three shots.  The screaming and f...

 
 
 
 

Thinking Out Loud

I remember travelling on a road trip with my parents, when they were healthy, and I said to my mother that I would gladly die for video games. My mother was very disappointed at the statements her 16-year-old son made at the time and ...

 
 
 
 

E3: Ace Cards

I was going to write like 3 articles like this but fuck it let’s go with one sold entry. So at E3 you have these moments, it doesn’t happen every year, it doesn’t happen all the time, but when they do, they change th...

 
 
 
 

VR Like It's 1963

When new hardware comes out in the form of an Eye Toy, a Wii remote, a Kinect etc. I always like to sit down and think of the possibilities that can happen with these new innovations and what could be done with the tech that has never...

 
 
 

In My Opinion, We Can Do More

I can be open to all opinions but it doesn't mean that I have to agree with everything that's out there, far from it. In this sporadic blog I'm going to write about some prefrences I have and some background. This may surprise a couple...

 
 
 

Fuck "Diversity"

There’s a sickness starting to develop in gaming and it’s mostly in the journalism. It was kinda prominent with Gamergate but now it’s almost as if some journalists almost feel hip to look at gaming as a whole and di...

 
 
 

Let Sonic Die

Why. Why haven’t we shot this rodent point blank? If there’s something that disagrees with me even more than Kingdom Hearts, it’s this fucking animal, Sonic the Hedgehog. How Sega’s still able to see the type o...

 
 
 

Don't Bring Your Fucking Toys to Work

I’m actually writing this blog at work because I have a bit of spare time before I need to get off my ass and tend to business. Today though, I wanted to talk about something that doesn’t seem to register with leagues of g...

 
 
 

My Top Ten Most Anticipated Games Right Now

Honestly I already have more quality games than I could even ask for. When I look at how many great games I have at my disposal, my only concern is living long enough to play them all. That being said, despite how great things already ...

 
 
 

My NES Inspired 8-Bit Biase

  I have a biased and I think it’s the only one I have when I look at a game honestly but it’s still there. And that’s a Nintendo biased. No, not your traditional all-things-Nintendo biased but an Original Ninten...

 
 
 

Gaming is MUCH Better Now

The worst part about being a gamer in his late twenties, has to be the constant nostalgic exaggerations that come from my generation about the quote on quote, “heyday of gaming.” In the mid-nineties. Now there may be a poi...

 
 
 

Shut Up and Pay Your Fucking Nintendo Tax

I’ve seen it for at least 15 years, I don’t think it’s as pronounced on this site but it never ceases to amaze me how forgetful many gamers are at the dawn of a new Nintendo system. Let me expand. I think the first t...

 
 
 

Looking Forward To PS4K

I’m having a hard time seeing the downside of the concept of a ‘PS4K’. Well, first of all, we don’t even know it’s a real thing. We need to cross that bridge first. But assuming it is, assuming they annou...

 
 
 

VR is NOT the Future of Gaming

I’ve honestly been hearing this crap since the mid-nineties, that one day, we’re going to put a helmet on and we’re going to be part of the game. Doesn’t matter who it was, people would look at the graphics get...

 
 
 

Don't mind a little dick

  Oh boy, here we go, I can almost hear the mouse clicking and the moderators flying over to this blog for a potential terms violation on my behalf. Don’t worry fellas, everything is under control, put the weapons down nice...

 
 
 

Seven AAA iPhone Games Without Compromise

  So I thought I’d take the time to make a list about a platform that tons of people own, but have never looked at it much like a true gaming console, because let’s face it, most of the games are either too fucking st...

 
 
 

Finding the Time to Game

Alright so nothing too edgy today but I thought I’d share a couple thoughts on something that comes up a lot when you’re pushing thirty and still have a bit of self-respect. Meaning, assuming you still have some respon...

 
 
 

This Blog Doesn't Really Matter

Buckle up you sensitive fucks because it’s about to get real for two seconds. Honestly, I don’t know what came first, the introverted pansy that gravitated toward games or the socially anxiety that came of them. It may be ...

 
 
 

Kingdom Heart: Chain of Mockeries

Uh oh, it’s time to take Kingdom Heart, line it next to your childhood and cue the firing squad because hot off the heels of the last disagreeable blog about our ‘dearly beloved’ franchise, Final Fantasy, comes the ga...

 
 
 

Platinum Demo: Kingdom Hearts 15

I was about to write a killer blog about the state of RPGs but there’s a couple things that have to be said, folks.  First of all, about Platinum Demo, what the fuck are we playing exactly? Square, have you no shame? I can&...

 
 
 

Undertale Belongs with the Greats

Can we stop pretending that Undertale isn’t one the best games ever made? Look, I’m not saying it’s greatest of all time but I’m getting pretty sick of a lot of geniuses throwing around their opinion about shit...

 
 
 

Beyond April Second? (Short Follow Up)

So I basically closed my laptop for April first because, you know, fuck April fools. I thought I was perfectly in the clear and that was when this happened— FUCK. How does this possibly happen? I specifically went into hiding an...

 
 
 

Beyond April Fools

Shit. It’s fucking April Fools. I cannot stand this day. Honestly, I’m not that much of a demanding person. If you’ll remember last E3, you know, the E3 where dreams came true. You’ll remember a pretty particula...

 
 
 

XBOX ONE EIGHTY

I honestly never thought I’d write something like this for at least like another 2 or so years but I have to say that Xbox One is having one hell of a good turnaround since spring. Let me be clear, when it comes to the PS4, Wii ...

 
 
 

Fucking Do It Nintendo

Everyone’s rooting for you, Nintendo. We don’t know why you’re standing still. As we look at the landscape of gaming, you own it. Your competitor may have the market and the hardware but the game design, innovation a...

 
 
 

Bradshaw Blog 1

Hello everyone and welcome to the blog, The basic bio is really on the side bar of this blog but for the sake of this first blog, I'll write a proper intro. My name is Chris Bradshaw, I was born in Montreal and my life is about gaming. I ha...

 
 

About Chris Bradshawone of us since 5:16 PM on 02.06.2008

Bradshaw.

There are too many Chris' in the world so just call me Bradshaw. That name will either delight you or annoy you, depending on how you find me.

I am unconventional at a minimum and a total shit disturber at worst. I love it when thing work wonderfully and when they go absolutely wrong. I love flying as close to the sun as possible and I love dissecting every last possibility about gaming until it hurts.

I can't stop having the high that video games give me. To me, they're better than anything I've drank, smoked or fucked. I would die for them tomorrow. They honestly mean everything to me, I would be nothing without them.

So as much as you may find me offensive at times, read between the lines and tolerate it. I promise you that at a minimum, you'll think of games differently, enjoy them less, but love them more.

A good part of what I do is play as many video games as possible to have a good grasp on the medium.
