Had some fun with this one today.
Growing up, I played Pokémon more frequently than any other game, and by the time my fascination with the series ended, I’d caught every single monster from Red, Blue, Gold and Silver, lost track of the 600+ new monsters they added after that. I’ve been thinking about the game a bit [...]

Angry Birds now has players buying lives.
It’s a little strange that the thirteenth game in the Angry Birds series is Angry Birds 2, but Rovio is trying to make this installment a big new splash for the aging franchise. Angry Birds has had an insane amount of spin-offs over the last few years, but the original remains [...]

As the two products grow together, it could produce some interesting results.
Windows 10 is out today, though by “out” I mean you will likely be sitting around waiting for your computer to update until some sentient Microsoft AI deems you worthy enough to upgrade. When that does finally happen, however, you’ll find a whole host of new features to play with, [...]

I'm getting pretty excited for this.
; It’s been quite a while since we’ve been talking about the good old high watermark for new-gen consoles, 1080p and 60 FPS, but one game is putting those data points back in the limelight, Doom. In an interview with the game’s executive director, Mary Stratton, Gamespot learned that id Software [...]

I don't buy it.
Everyone has their own guess as to what Nintendo’s NX hardware will actually turn out to be, and Silicon Valley based tech advisor Digi-Capital has put their analytical skills to the test to put forth their best theory. It’s somewhat plausible, but I’m not sure if I’m convinced. In short, [...]

The NX could use a huge launch game.
At this point, there’s so little news about Nintendo’s next Zelda game, that even non-news is news. Hence a story about Nintendo Marketing VP Scott Moffitt saying the following to iDigitalTimes: “We confirmed that a Zelda game, a new Zelda experience is in development for the Wii U and we have [...]

This seems like a perfect time to end the show.
; We’re very deep into the Game of Thrones off-season, but that doesn’t mean news can’t break about the series anyway. Speaking at the Television Critics Association, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo spoke about the future of the channel’s flagship series, and how long it’s probably going to run. “They are feeling two [...]

A Wii U/NX crossover release is nigh.
; Nintendo is freaking a few fans out this morning with a note in their newest quarterly financial report that lists The Legend of Zelda’s expected release as “TBD” instead of “2016,” even though other games have the exact year pinned on them. The difference was noticed by Game Informer, but as they [...]

Sigh. Just when I think I'm out...
; It never fails to amaze me that Blizzard is still hard at work at changing Diablo 3 for the better in major ways. Most games will continue to patch out bugs or patch in bits of extra content as time goes on, but if Diablo 3 was a human being [...]

I don't think there's any legitimate inside information here.
  This morning, a reddit thread is being passed around the Destiny fan community claiming insider knowledge about aspects of not only The Taken King, but also Destiny 2 itself. I’ve read it a few times (you can see it here for yourself), and each time it gets a little less [...]

What a cute little keyboard!
  Microsoft made news last week when they announced that they were working to ensure that the Xbox One had full mouse and keyboard support soon enough. The idea is that the functionality is needed in order to effectively implement PC to Xbox One streaming of computer games, where currently only [...]

Nintendo thinking outside the box. Outside the building the box is in. Outside the country the box is in.
; Earlier this week, internet sleuths dug up a Nintendo patent for what appears to be the rough design of their mysterious “Quality of Life” sensor, something long touted by the company as an experimental project, but little has been officially revealed about it. That remains the case, but the patent gives [...]

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.
