TLDR- I found an old blog post, so here it is

Is this thing still on? I found a bunch of old posts that I had begun prepping to put up on this here blog (last edit dating back to June '11), so I've chosen my favorite one to put up here because I still think it's relevant. Maybe I'll ...

 
 
 

A month later- E3 Afterhype: Calling out the fans

(I need to stop writing things and then not putting them up) One complaint that Iíve been hearing a lot from my friends/random internet sites is the complete and utter lack of new IP announced at E3 this year. You know what, thatís a val...

 
 
 

My 2 cents- A point by point breakdown as I saw it

So E3 is going on, and all the major press conferences have just wrapped up, and I felt like screaming my opinions out to the world because thatís what people do right? Awwwww, here it GOES! Microsoft I want to get this out of the way f...

 
 
 

TLDR Short Edition- Game Theorists are Jerks

I wanted to sit down and write a feature about a type of people I remember being able to prove existed- pretentious videogame theorists. In my mind, these were people whose sole intent was to study, research, and claim as fact whatever co...

 
 
 

TLDR- The History of Playing Alone

Videogames have greatly evolved (to say the least) since their inception (BERRRRRRMMM), but some things have always stayed the same- they can be played alone, with people, against people, or kooky ways of interaction regarding a Ďyouí and...

 
 
 

TLDR: GDC Might Not Be For You

GDC is upon us once again, and that means that just about every major video game developer is in San Fran sharing thrilling tales of late nights, voodoo code, and new tools for artists and designers to argue over. Usually with those stor...

 
 
 

TLDR: An introduction to a series of ramblings

I have honestly been putting this off for way too long. Initially I was going to do these as I thought them up, and then I was going to do a ď12 days of XmasĒ type thing, but eventually I put it off until now. I have a thing I like to cal...

 
 
 
 

Over a month later- or - My game is on Gamasutra

Hey Dtoid guys, its been a while. Last time I posted was about an UT3 mod that I was about to begin working on for a class. Well that class is now long over (ended in late march), but something funny happened. Earlier this morning, Gamasu...

 
 
 

A whole new project

It felt weird being on the top 1000 I took a break for a while to settle down from the madness that was my trip, but now I'm back to use this Blog as a platform for my next endeavor- A UT3 mod. I hope just as many people that were interest...

 
 
 

STtJ- The afterthought

Extra late edition *Warning*- There will probably be a large amount of text with no pictures. Don't say I didn't warn you. So I know I said "within the week" but that quickly turned into "about a week and a half later", oh well. And here...

 
 
 

STtJ- Last Day

All good things come to an end. Last day...and I don't want to leave. Also- I lied to you guys again- not too many pics today AND I didn't go to Den-Den town. Also, I eventually realized that they really don't like when you take pictures...

 
 
 

STtJ- Day 10

What pictures? So one of the reasons why so many pictures have been blurry is because I'm not using flash. the reason for this is that its easier to just keep a no flash setting on, so that I don't make the people in the companies I was vi...

 
 
 

STtJ- Day 9

Not Godzilla attack So I lied to you guys- No kimono's or Japanese Dance, but I did go to the golden palace and a bunch of other really ancient cool places Yeah, today we took off slightly early to go tour 3 places. First up was this re...

 
 
 

STtJ-Day 8

Drums Today was a long day simply because of the extra early wake up and the large amounts of walking/train riding. So we ended up almost being late because two of the kids on the trip didn't wake up until we were all downstairs waiti...

 
 
 

STtJ- Day 7

I can has hairdo. Today I woke up and took a visit to one of the 2 Tokyo Jump Shops (Weekly Shonen Jump official shop). Got a few pics of interesting shops in that subway mall. Afterward I went to Harijuku to get a hai...

 
 
 

STtJ- Day 6

When it rains it pours So today was interesting. My picture taking has taken a huge hit. One reason is because I'm not allowed to take pictures inside of awesome studios, but another is because we're walking everywhere and so far walking...

 
 
 

STtJ- Day 5

I'm starting to loose it. Seriously, I'm a lazy kid, I usually sleep between 11PM and 3 AM and wake up between 10AM and 1 PM. Here on this trip, I'm sleeping at like 11-2 and waking up between 8 and 9. At first I was fine, but its starting...

 
 
 

STtJ- Day 4

I can't talk about it. I've come to conclude that some of the most interesting things in japan are the advertisements. The format of most TV shows is having commercials only between shows and durring 1 break in the middle. As a result, i...

 
 
 

STtJ- Day 3

Socks. E- sorry for the large images, forgot to change the upload settings to downsize my massive pics. Also- As you can tell I have ridiculously large images that take about 5 min each to upload on the Dtoid up-loader thingy on the righ...

 
 
 

Shool Trip to Japan- Day 2

Stairs Today was all about stairs...I climbed them, and I took a hell of a lot of pictures of them. 255+and counting (Confusing subway station is confusing) I started off the day feeling slightly under the weather so I popped on a face...

 
 
 

School Trip to Japan (STtJ)- Day 1

Also known as- How to spend way too much money in one day PHOTOS!!!!!!111!!!!one Alright guys and gals (and anyone in between who actually read this). Today was probably one of the most exciting days of my life. Like many geeks I have he...

 
 
 

School Trip to Japan- Day 0.5

As promised guys, here I am writing on and about my first sort of day in Japan. (I have one other post on this site and if you want to make sense of anything I'm saying you might want to read it). So I flew out of Chicago at local time 11:1...
