About me
I am a very passionate gamer. It takes up most of my spare time and I have played just about everything including MMOs, RPGs, First Person Shooters, Platformers, Tabletops, Card Games (Magic, Hearthstone, Etc) and even some of the board games such as Settlers of Catan and Munchkin. In general, I just love all games and e-sports.

No Man's Sky: Too Big? A Completionist's Perspective

No Man's Sky is a game that has been on my watch list since its announcement. The game promises an aspect that I have always enjoyed: exploration. Even better, it appeals to my love of science by allowing me ...

Innovating or Annoying?

Many MMO games, such as World of Warcraft, utilize a class system in which you choose a specific style of play (ranged, magic, melee, etc) and that is your character for the entirety. Other games, like Elder Scrolls Online, follow ...

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Hearthstone's latest installment of Tavern Brawl features spiders everywhere! Webspinner is a common enough card in most Midrange Hunter decks but, this week, they are all you get. You choose a hero class and use it in conjunction with ...

The free-to-upgrade model. How will this affect the industry?

It almost seemed too good to be true. All users with Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 will receive a free upgrade to Windows 10 on July 29th.

Upon further investigation, there is a catch. The upgrade is ...

Brawling Bananas

As we saw in Michael's post, the first Tavern Brawl left a little bit to be desired in terms of being balanced. Nefarian had a clear advantage over Ragnaros and the Ragnaros player had to be absolutely on point ...

A Good Scare Never Hurt Anyone

I remember my first time playing horror games in the form of the first F.E.A.R. The game created an atmosphere of constant apprehension. I couldn't round a corner without expecting some horrific visage to fill my ...

I'm of a similar mindset to @Brady Lee. Though I was a bit disappointed by Far Cry 4, Primal looks much more enthralling with its primitive aspects so I give it an 8.5/10.

I give Firewatch a ...

My current mobile game addiction is Knights of Pen and Paper. I can literally play that game for hours just finding sets of monsters, completing quests, or even trying to level up the blacksmith. It takes me back to the ...

@Andrew Mittleman I completely understand where you are coming from. However, I don't agree, but that's just my opinion. To me, it's still awesome to see the randomness that comes to light from simple algorithms and world ...

I really have to go with the Vizier from Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. I mean, come on, he obliterated the entire city just because he wanted to be immortal. To me, he always exemplified those who were willing ...

Thanks @Terrianne Webster and great points! There are violent video games. In fact, as time goes on and realism progresses it seems that there are more violent games. But, as you said, violent games don't equal a violent person ...

@Joshua Thompson brings up a good point. One of those filters being removed, common sense, then it falls to the parents to either instill those values or moderate what games their children play (at least up until the children are ...

@Terrianne Webster brings up some great points. I actually found myself trying to come up with an answer to this myself but, not because I haven't played a lot of games but because I have played so many in ...

I would say that waiting a year between games is definitely worthwhile. Doing research will also help that decision making process. I didn't buy FIFA 14 but I did buy FIFA 15 and I probably won't end up ...

I'll be honest and say that the separate game could either be a huge success or a huge offense. I won't speak for the female population but there is definitely a chance that some would say "Why do ...

As Josh said, too much of something can get tiresome. When there is a new physics update year to year, I'll be honest, I stop being able to see it. So the splash is more detailed when they run ...

The first point that I wanted to discuss here was enough changes to make the price point worth it. As someone who has played, for example, the FIFA series for the past three years I can say that none of ...

@Michael Loving Do you use Enterprise? If not, you should still qualify. I had to sit on the phone with MS support while they went through it but there is a certain update that had to be installed on mine ...
