ESPN is hiring an eSports editor at last.
  What’s possibly the hottest single job listing in the gaming community world at this moment? That would be a just-listened opening at ESPN, who at long last, is searching for an eSports editor. After years of flirting with the concept of eSports, it seems ESPN is finally poised to significantly step [...]

We are all biased in small ways, but there's no need for it to be so divisive.
As we head into the fall, the console wars are heating up. Just kidding, they’re really not. Instead, the PS4 and Xbox One march more or less lockstep into the season sharing nearly all the biggest games. What will undoubtedly be the top three sellers of the holiday season, Black Ops [...]

Fanboys on either side have no real rational why anymore. Its just plan silly. I personally have a ps4 because I liked my ps3 for streaming media from plex and while the PS4 lacks the same functionality of the ps3 the interface with the plex app is outstanding. When I got my ps4 it was cheaper and I didn't like kinetic. That was my primary reason for getting the ps4 over the Xbone. When I had my 360 there were somethings that just seemed to work easier  when grouping with friends than on the ps4, but anymore I dont notice them. I will probably end up getting an xbone in the next year for a few games tho, Halo being the primary one.

My time with Metal Gear Solid so far.
  Stop the presses. I, a video game journalist, do not have a longstanding relationship with Metal Gear Solid. The simple truth of the matter is that even if you manage to keep up with 90% of the biggest series in the industry over the course of your life, some are [...]

Metal Gear Solid has no real competition today, it seems.
  A few weeks ago, I wrote about Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and Mad Max were on an inexplicable collision course, with both laying claim to a September 1st release date. I wondered if one should move, with the likely answer being Mad Max, given the significance of [...]

We'll never see something like this again.
Tomorrow marks the launch of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Hideo Kojima’s latest masterpiece, at least judging by its early review scores. The game has amassed a close-to-flawless 95 on Metacritic, drawing perfect 10s from over a half dozen outlets, with more likely to come as the game is [...]

Spent a while on this gallery. Check it out!
  Yesterday, Legendary Pictures announced that they were adapting Borderlands into a post-apocalyptic blockbuster, and the gaming community reacted with a collective arched eyebrow. First, there’s the obvious fact that any new video game feature film has to be met with some skepticism given how terrible nearly all other attempts have [...]

Not sure how this is going to go.
  There have been two theories about how Game of Thrones would handle the one major plotline from the books that has yet to appear in the show. Either they would abandon the Iron Islands and its Kingsmoot, or it would shove it off for season six, with season five too [...]

I really liked the thematic cohesiveness of the Greyjoy kingsmoot arc, but that was because I read it all in one chunk in Dragon magazine (my intro to GoT) I'm not sure about it broken up among other stuff that would happen in episodes.

Join my Destiny liveblog here!
  Today is the last of Bungie’s three reveal streams for Destiny's The Taken King. The first focused on Quality of Life changes to the game, and the second ran us through one of the expansion’s new Strikes. Today, we’re exploring the new playable area of the game, the Dreadnaught, nestled [...]

It's midnight but I sort of rage-wrote this.
Video I’m more than a little tired of being embarrassed about the childish behavior of certain vocal contingents of the gaming community, and this latest example is hard to ignore. Last week, in conjunction with the launch of YouTube Gaming, Jimmy Kimmel did a short two-minute skit poking fun at the [...]

Because gamers that are vocal like that are children. They have zero social development, shit lots of zeros when it comes to tolerance and many other acceptable social aspects. They are still children and should be treated as such, put in a corner and ignored. Let them sit at the little kids table. If you cant laugh at a joke thats meant in good humor at a activity that you participate in, sit back and look at all the shit you make fun of and how many people you have hurt. Karma will come back to them some day.

I can't even get over how awful this is.
  It’s been a good long while since the gaming community has gotten riled about a game’s pre-order bonus structure, but it seems it was too much to hope for that perhaps the industry had turned a corner. Rather, the new offender breaks my heart, as it’s Square Enix’s Deus Ex: [...]

Fear the Walking Dead can have a head start over the original.
  As we head into the second episode of Fear the Walking Dead on AMC, the show is already a runaway success. It shattered both live ratings and DVR records for a cable show, and has likely secured itself a lifespan past the initial two seasons that have already been greenlit. I [...]

This MOBAFPS race is heating up before it's even started.
Video   The FPSMOBA arena wars are heating up, and not a single new game has even hit the market yet. This week, Cliff Bleszinski has revealed his new project, having moved on from Epic and Gears of War, and it’s a 5v5 arena shooter called LawBreakers, set in a world where [...]

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.
