My follow-up to yesterday's piece.
If there’s one sentiment I saw repeatedly in reaction to my piece yesterday about how Valve’s new Skyrim mod store is a disaster in many ways, it’s that fans and modders can all agree on one thing: The idea of paying good modders for good mods is just fine. The problem? [...]

I hope Telltalle isn't biting off more than they can chew.
For the next week you'll have to cover your ears and eyes to avoid hearing or seeing anything about Avengers: Age of Ultron. It's the latest super-production in Marvel's plan for world domination, which has recently crept from blockbuster movies into blockbuster TV between SHIELD, Agent Carter, Daredevil and about four [...]

Big changes are coming with House of Wolves
VideoInformation is starting to trickle out about Destiny’s second expansion, House of Wolves, and soon it’s going to become a flood. Later today, Bungie will hop on Twitch to explore some of the new content from the DLC, and explain some of the new systems they’ll be putting into place. But [...]

The mystery series may go multiplatform
Remedy did something highly unusual the other day and opened up to Polygon about the long-gestating, but never ultimately produced Alan Wake 2, the sequel to the Xbox 360 exclusive. They shared lots of info and showed lots of footage, but ultimately said that despite opening up the vault, it [...]

Anyone looking forward to giving this a go?
It’s been in the shadows for a while, mostly accessible by invite-only, but now Blizzard’s take on the MOBA genre, Heroes of the Storm, will see the light of day soon enough. Blizzard has just announced that the game will kick off with an open beta May 19th, ahead of [...]

Nope - I have an incredible dislike for MOBAs.

The argument doesn't really hold up anymore.
Last week, HBO suffered an enormous leak of the first four episodes of season five of Game of Thrones, via someone being a bit careless or malevolent with their press screeners. At the time, I advised against watching the leaked episodes, not necessarily on moral grounds, but because the leak [...]

Modders are friends, not food.
Valve and Bethesda's announcement of a jointly run paid Skyrim mods store has been met by nothing but fury from fans over the past 24 hours. Even modders, whom the idea is supposed to benefit, are coming out against the idea, which they deem detrimental to the entire community. It should [...]

Less load times! Better load screens! Smarter bosses!
Bloodborne is a difficult game full of brutally unforgiving enemies assaulting a player who starts out ill-equipped to face them. But the game has been challenging in another way as well. The penalty for death in Bloodborne (a frequent occurrence) isn't just the loss of progress, the resetting of enemies [...]

I just like the picture I got to go with this. Remember those Nerf crossbows? Amazing.
In the wake of the unprecedented leak of four Game of Thrones episodes ahead of the fifth season premiere two weeks ago, which have been downloaded millions of times since, some who shared the files are about to face the music. So to speak. HBO has a complicated relationship with piracy, from [...]

Is the mystery item a trophy, a prank or a secret?
In this relatively bleak spring games landscape, post-Evolve and pre-Witcher 3, Bloodborne remains a subject of fascination for many players. For those playing in smaller chunks, the game can take weeks to get through, and that’s only the first playthrough, depending on your skill and schedule. Bloodborne has been seeded with [...]

Spoilers after the first two paragraphs or so.
With Game of Thrones entering its fifth season, the show will start diverging from George RR Martin’s original books more than ever. Big changes seem to be ahead for both Tyrion and Jaime Lannister, as compared to their adventures in the books, and other characters like Sansa, Littlefinger and Brienne [...]

I actually liked the idea of Stoneheart. But the way things have changed in the show from the books is pretty good. (Brienne and Jamie's plot lines)

Mod support is key. 
Now that GTA 5 has made it to PC at long (long, long) last, many players are finding that the port was worth the wait. The game runs fantastically well and seems to be the culmination of everything Rockstar has learned since the original launch of the title back on [...]

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.
