Introduction
I'm an electronics enthusiast who is lucky enough to make a living as a senior editor for PCWorld. I was a longtime freelancer before that, with my work appearing in Maximum PC, Laptop Magazine, Wired, Gizmodo, FoxNews.com, MSNBC.com and many, many others.

When I'm not writing, I'm usually either reading, listening to music of all types, or neglecting my family by playing waaaaaaaay too much Wasteland 2.
Bragging rights
Biggest beard this side of ZZ Top (and that homeless guy down the street).

Now that it's out of Early Access I need to buy this to play with my kids. It's the first perfect score we've handed out in years.
 
Kerbal Space Program is more than just an outstanding space sim. It’s the embodiment of everything that’s noteworthy and valuable about PC gaming.
Kerbal Space Program isn't just a fantastic space game. It's one of those games that makes you glad you play on PC, because it could only come to exist on PC.

I'm sorry, I can't associate with you until you buy this game and successfully reach orbit. Goodbye and good luck.

This video of a monkey shooting cars from a gun and then flying away in GTA V is everything glorious about PC gaming and the modding scene.

YEAH BUDDY 
And in typical GOG fashion, it's all about providing options. Don't like Galaxy? That's fine, don't use it!

Someone used the video editor in the PC version of GTA V to make this TREMENDOUSLY AWESOME Jackass parody.

I'm sideloading an OTA update on a watch because this is just the world we live in now.

Considering it needs to drive TWO 2160x1200 displays at 90fps, the Oculus Rift's minimum system specs are almost shockingly reasonable—though still beefy. MY BODY IS READY 
It takes a lot of horsepower to drive the Oculus Rift's dual 2160×1200 displays at 90 frames per second, but not as much as expected.

IT'S HAPPENING
Oculus has been busy wrapping up ecosystem support for the Oculus Rift, but the delay may cost it the crucial first-to-market status for the fledgling field of VR.

This gameplay overview trailer for the upcoming Mad Max game (from the folks who did Just Cause) actually looks pretty damned interesting.

It's been nine years this month since I start contributing to Maximum PC​. A lot has changed during that time, both professionally and personally, some of which I cover in an editorial reflecting on the wild ride it's been.

Absolutely tremendous food, but loooong wait times. It's totally worth the patience, but you may want to place a take out order if you have young kids in tow. Prices are reasonable for the quantity and quality, too - $10 to $20 for entrees, $8 to $10 for sandwiches, including half-pound burgers. Get the Buffalo tenders!
