POWDERED DONUT PANCAKE SURPRISE!

I'm sorry!

For what I’m about to bestow upon you all, I am sorry. I’ve created a monster.

I was invited to a pot luck a while back. Rather than be the typical bachelor and bring beer or a bottle of liquor, I decided to make something.  Against my better judgment, this is what I decided to make: Read More…

Math. How I Chose My Next Gen Console

Ummm...

When the next gen consoles launched in November of 2013, I was underwhelmed.  They were nothing truly ground breaking and there weren’t any games I had to play.   Read More…

I Still Don’t Have a Next Gen Console

which one???????????

I still don’t have a next-gen console. You’re probably asking yourself- what the hell kind of a video game blog is this? The answer to that is “not a good one.” But what you should be asking is: why don’t you have an Xbox One or Playstation 4… yet? There are two reasons. Read More…

I’m Still Alive!

No zombie apocalypse (yet... damn it)

You probably haven’t noticed that I haven’t updated in a while. There’s a reason for that. Read what the reason is…

The Bullshit Review Scale

Part of why I read reviews is to decide whether or not I should play/buy a game. Games cost money and with a regular 9-6 job my time is limited in what I can play.  I have to make that count.  Also, I like reading reviews! If I’m going to play a game from start to finish and then talk about it, I should also post my own formal review of it.  Makes sense, right? But what makes Read on…

I Didn’t Like The Last of Us.

True story.

This post is 100% spoiler free.

After 17 and a half hours I finally beat The Last of Us. It took me somewhere around 6 gaming sessions to finish and I didn’t look forward to any of them except the last (where I knew I’d finish the game).

What Siri Could Learn From The Xbox One

Siri is an “intelligent assistant” that was first introduced in iOS 5 on the iPhone 4s on October 12, 2011.

Since then, not many would argue it’s evolved much but with the release of iOS 7 coming this fall, I have hopes, dreams, desires… for Siri.  I want it to be more easily accessible, less invasive of my other iPhone activities and I want Siri to become a more complex artificial intelligence.  In order to make some of these improvements, Apple should take a nod from Microsoft’s new Xbox One.

The Art of Kotaku

Like many avid gamers, I read a ton of previews, reviews, articles etc. online about video games.  The most common thing I find, or rather feel, when reading something is that … Read on…

Don Mattrick is Leaving Microsoft

After a storm of (mostly negative) press surrounding Microsoft and the Xbox One, All Things D is reporting that Don Mattrick is leaving Microsoft and heading to Zynga.  Their sources are saying that head honcho of Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business (a fancy way of saying XBox) is leaving the company for struggling indie game developer, Zynga.

Why Microsoft’s Reversal Is Bad.

Disclaimer:  If you want a quick reason- read the final three paragraphs.  If you want theory/my arrival to this point- read on!

I’ve been a hardcore Xbox fan since Microsoft’s rookie console.  I loved the graphics.  I loved Halo.  I loved the controller.  I loved the multiplayer experience.  Until a couple years ago, I had never even owned a Sony console.  They didn’t have games I could justify spending another $400 for.  Even if they did, I hated the controller- that was my main reason for holding back.  It never fit well in my hands!  So I just passed on it.

There was something bothering me, though. Read More…
