A few of my friends have been doing annual recap posts so I decided to get in on the fun. I’ve been so terrible at writing posts here this year…maybe this will start a new trend. 2013 was a good gaming year for me! When Sony and Microsoft announced their […]

This post is based on intuition and feelings. I’m feeling pretty confident that I’m right but I have neither the time nor the energy to dig up citations. So consider it a rant. I can’t help escape the feeling that gaming (whatever you imagine gaming as an entity to be) […]

Tonight’s plans got somewhat derailed by a bunch of excitement in the G+ community, and then I had to d/l a new patch for BG:EE, so I didn’t start playing until nearly 11. Traellan’s new friends want him to travel to some gods-forsaken place to investigate the metal shortage but […]

So a lot of ink has been spilled recently (how long until kids have no idea what that means?) over declining revenues in the gaming industry. I’m not an insider so I don’t know if this is all alarmist press or a real problem, but I do see a lot […]

Friday night a contributor to gaming blog Destructoid asked some disparaging questions about Felicia Day. 24 hours later he was out of a job but has a ton more Twitter followers

MMOs are like crack [well, not really, I've never done crack but I'm pretty sure MMOs are a lot better for you]. I think I’ve quit the habit and next thing you know I’m sucked back in. Purchases This Week Some Gold to spend in Tribes:Ascend And I switched my […]

So another PAX East has come and gone. I wrote up daily ‘reports’ on the show over on Google+. Some of them were written under the influence of too much good beer with good friends, and none of them are particularly noteworthy or in-depth. I went to PAX purely as […]
