Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
I'll readily admit that I appreciate being moved emotionally by media (music, film, video games, etc.), and one of the easiest ways to move me is to appeal to my love for my family, specifically my brother, whom I care for deeply. Brothers: A Tale of Two So...

How Vinyl Records Saved Me from the Wrong Kind of Game
I know what you're thinking. Why in the world would I be writing about music on a video game blog? Well, I promise that I'm not going to try to make the argument that music and video games are inextricably linked to one another; though, perhaps I'll plow t...

Bastion
Sometimes, people call me a hipster. It's such a divisive term, but it is one that I've come to grips with. I think the reason that "hipster" has become something of an insult has quite a bit to do with the fact that the term is so difficult to define. T...

Thinking About Grandpa Herman... and Finally Building My First Gaming PC!
I'll never forget the day that my brother and I came home from school to find a computer sitting on a cheap desk in our bedroom. We freaked out, yelling and jumping on the bunk beds in our already too-small room. I recall thinking that we were in a dream ...

Game Dev Story & Game Dev Tycoon
A few months ago, I started seeing adverts for a game called Game Dev Tycoon on Steam, which stirred my vacant soul into excitement. Every indication that I got from my quick glance at the available screenshots led me to believe that this was an evolved re...

Mass Effect 3
Author's note: Though I have no intention of spoiling anything of great importance in this post, there really isn't any reason for you to read this if you haven't played the previous games. Go experience the nuances of this trilogy for yourself, and then c...

Mass Effect 2
As I finished up the last few hours of the first Mass Effect , I had EA's less-than-compelling Origin service downloading Mass Effect II . I was excited to import my Shepherd and my decisions into the next game. The concept of carrying over my progress in...

Mass Effect
Mass Effect is a game that took me a very long time to get into. When I first started the game, I found it to be wildly overrated. The game felt slow and a bit tedious. I've since come to realize that most, if not all, of the problems that I found in the...

My New Computer vs. BioShock Infinite
I really enjoy Steam. I think it's a wonderful service, and many would go so far as to say that it is single-handedly responsible for the resurgence of PC gaming. I might say that these people are being a bit reductive and are therefore ignoring the compl...

Story
Introduction
Before I die, I'd like to do something meaningful for the small bit of the world that I inhabit so that when I am gone, those who knew me will remember me fondly.
Bragging rights
I used to be in a band. We played 75 shows in 8 months. Then we imploded. Years later, I played in another band: more successful than any I've ever played with. I actually made a little bit of money.
