What the Wii U needed.
; Seeing that Nintendo is pretty content eulogizing the Wii U at this point, I didn’t see the harm in doing it as well. While it’s great that almost three years into its lifespan, Nintendo is finally trying to focus on the capabilities of the gamepad with Star Fox Zero and [...]

Nintendo wants to hold onto its Lucky Charms.
; Heading into E3 this year, there were two things Nintendo specifically said they wouldn’t talk about, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U, and their new NX hardware, both of which are supposed to be kept under wraps until 2016. While Nintendo is keeping their word and still refusing to discuss [...]

The endings of Arkham Knight range from awesome to awful.
Spoilers abound, obviously, but here's a discussion of the Arkham Knight endings.

Have you met the new star of Arkham Knight?
When I picked up Arkham Knight this week, I didn’t realize that the game would have an entirely new star other than Batman. No, I’m not talking about the Arkham Knight himself, the Rocksteady-created character who dresses like Batman but aims to kill him using a boatload of guns and [...]

Microsoft has its cheapest bundle ever in the wake of E3.
While this is not the “Sale! Sale! Sale!” glossy section of the newspaper, it has become clear that Microsoft is running a promotion that is slipping under the radar for many, and is actually the single best deal on any new-gen console we’ve seen since their 2013 launch. In the wake of [...]

Call of Duty doesn't want to eat itself with remasters.
The Call of Duty machine continues to run like clockwork. Year after year, a new release, rotating between three studios, Sledgehammer, Treyarch and Infinity Ward. The series may not be setting the all-time sales records it used to a few years ago, but every year it’s a windfall for Activision [...]

Conflicting messages from Nintendo here.
; I woke up today and read two very different Nintendo-focused articles. One was a Polygon piece on how Nintendo is going all out with Star Fox Zero as a way to justify the gamepad’s existence, while the other was a Fortune interview with Shigeru Miyamoto called “Why the Wii U [...]

This is the problem everyone seems to be failing to notice with Destiny, and why we're running into all these issues.
; There have been a lot of controversies this past week regarding Destiny, almost all of them stemming from one place, despite their seemingly different origins. Players feel like they’re being exploited financially. The now-infamous Luke Smith interview about The Taken King failed to properly convey why the expansion was double the [...]

These two games have nothing in common other than being on top of their sub-genre.
This past week, I’ve been in the final stretch of The Witcher 3, trying to finish up the game before the release of Arkham Knight. This isn’t entirely necessary of course, I could easily just put it down and pick it up later, but to me it’s like stopping a [...]

It was certainly a good week for this to be announced.
In what could be the worst timed announcement ever, in a week filled with controversy for Bungie and Destiny, Activision has unveiled a partnership with Red Bull that gives energy drink-consumers bonus XP and an exclusive mission in the upcoming expansion, The Taken King. The fact that some sort of Destiny deal [...]

I know it's late but I had to comment on this.
Bungie has stepped into an easily-avoidable minefield with a recent interview conducted by Eurogamer with Taken King Creative Director Luke Smith. The interview, which has been spread around the Destiny community far and wide since it was released, is incredibly testy and has rubbed most who have read it the wrong [...]

Doesn't matter, I wont be getting it, even if they fix it! I was still slapped in the face and an apology is needed as part of that fix.

Destiny has to find away to lure lapsed players back, and I have an idea.
With its new expansion coming out this fall, The Taken King, Destiny is taking care of its longest-running players and newbies alike. New players are getting far and away the best deal possible, with a super edition of Destiny priced at $80 which packages the base game with the two currently [...]

Or, you know, they could maybe make level progression not a big, chaotic grind that's gear dependent and maybe like other MMOs, have an end game that begins at an attainable max level... I'm a lapsed player, and I just don't have the time or desire to bother playing.

Story
Introduction
I'm Editor-in-Chief of a film/tv/gaming site I founded called Unreality and I'm a video game-focused contributor over at Forbes. I think I'm a part of the first generation of journalists to skip print media entirely. I love all things media, and I'm honored that other people actually seem to want to hear my thoughts on issues in the industry. 
Bragging rights
I once wrote a post about Nicolas Cage's hair that was the 8th most popular article on the internet that day.
