Show Me Something Useless

Why I Love Cheevos, and Why that Sucks

So here's the deal, I love cheevos. Achievements, I love achievements. And I hate that I love them. Achievements are a goal. They're something to accomplish, to strive for. They're a milestone that proves you've been where you've been,...

 
 
 

More Than Just Noise: Silence

So here's the deal, I'm sorry. I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry. It's been two long weeks since I last posted here, hope no one thought I was gone. I was, in fact, moving across the country; just last week my second year of journalism school ...

 
 
 

Final Fantsy Om Nom: Crisis Core [Shortblog]

So here's the deal, As I progress closer and closer to the launch of this site I'm rolling out, which will only be mentioned once more on this blog, I promise, I'm more and more considering doing this kind of thing for a living. This being...

 
 
 

Agency and You. And Them.

So here's the deal, I recently caught myself up on the awesome that is our pertaining-to-this-website's-writer-roster late Reverend. I listened to the lecture he gave at Berkeley about the difficulties of character development in games, an...

 
 
 
 

A Night of Drinking and Game Narrative

So here's the deal, A couple months back, back when I was just a wee lad taking his first steps into the big, scary, and often awesome-laden world of the c-blogs, I wrote a rather inflammatory post about how story in games was an absolute ...

 
 
 

Gaming's Biggest Failure

So here's the deal, I would like to start by saying that the past week spent without a single post was a cold and frightening one indeed. It's the longest I've gone without posting something over the last 5 months, and I endeavor not to re...

 
 
 

How to Do the Faceless Hero Right

Why no love, man? [Short-ish blog]

The Likeliest Unlikely Hero

So here's the deal, In the same fashion as many of its older brethren, the idea for this post was conceived on my way home from work. As a side note, I find that time oddly satisfying. It's about half an hour where I have nothing to do b...

 
 
 

Is it just me or...

So here's the deal, Press conferences are a big deal, to say the very least. They offer a company a chance to showcase the best of what it has to offer, and there is therefore a lot of pressure on that company to present not only a polishe...

 
 
 
 

I'm a Little Late to the "Party"

So here's the deal, I got my first Xbox 360 in September of 2009, only the second video game console I've ever owned after my Wii; my parents were pretty against anything other than a computer until grade 11. So it shouldn't come as a surp...

 
 
 

A Way to Pass the Longest Minutes of Your Life

So here's the deal, Today will be another banner day in the book of Om Nom. Not only have I conceived of a blog idea completely on my own, but I'm going to write it in language that doesn't sound completely douchy and pretentious. Prepare ...

 
 
 

Because You're Itching for Another

So here's the deal, Today I again intend to take my less traveled road and venture into the world of the post that isn't an exercise in pompous proclamations about this and that, and I might as well do a Top 5 list because, well, all the c...

 
 
 

Smarten Up, You Troglodyte, You Philistine

So here's the deal, We all know that creativity is a positive. Exploring something new and inspired, something that's truly unique, has become a rare experience that I've really come to appreciate. At the other end of the spectrum, a compl...

 
 
 

All You'll Ever Need

So here's the deal, I was looking through my old posts today, and realized that every single one written with any kind of verve or passion was really very serious. It was some far-flung and thought out view on the industry as a whole or th...

 
 
 

Greetings, Puny Humans!

So here's the deal, Recently, I've been suffering from a rather debilitating bout of writer's block. I've had about four different solid ideas for blog subjects over the past couple days, but somehow, they simply refuse to get themselves o...

 
 
 

Ode to Peon

So here's the deal, A buddy of mine recently bought this massive-ass Alienware laptop that weighs about as much as Chris Griffin looked like he did when he cam out of the womb. It cost him a lung and a couple toes, but I'll be honest, the ...

 
 
 

My Deepest, Most Humble Apologies

So here's the deal, As some of you may have read, I posted yesterday with my two cents about the games/art debate. I can now tell you that, in one short day, no matter how infallibly and incontestably correct I may continue to be on a dail...

 
 
 
 
 

About Om Nom On Soulsone of us since 4:57 PM on 02.27.2010



So here's me,

My real name is Max and I'm a diehard Browncoat. I also have an encyclopedic knowledge of the Star Wars universe left over from a childhood obsession, as well as an actual Star Wars encyclopedia, but that's another matter.

I like to sleep, but keep odd hours, I like food A LOT, I like TV on occasion, I'm not a huge fan of any music except symphonic, and apparently I have bad music taste, even at 20 I can barely grow enough facial hair to justify shaving more than twice a week, I love to write, I kinda read, I hate a couple of the people in my J-school program, HBO is perfect, LOST is actually alright, I'm a total gearhead, Avatar was a terrible movie but an incredible experience, How to Train Your Dragon was very, VERY awesome, and all I want at this moment is a 1:1 stuffed Appa.

Guess what this last paragraph used to be for? My two cents on the games/art debate. Guess what's here now? NOTHING, and that's the way I likes it.
