  1. Zero

    I distinctly remember the moment I had to suspend caution, briefly turning off my mind, to make the jump.

  2. Got Game?

    The game industry is an exciting place, and it’s even more exciting now that I’ve personally announced I’m in development of my very own video game.

  3. Doom 4 has a Logo

    It would be an understatement to say that information regarding Doom 4 has been tightly guarded. So you can imagine my excitement when during one of my Id Software stalking episodes, I came across the new logo for Doom 4 on their job opportunities page. Discreet, but delicious.

  4. Avatar Blues, Immersion and Video Games

    James Cameron’s Avatar has been met with almost unanimous applause from critics and audiences alike. But it seems, what people failed to predict, was that the exotic fantasy would become a double-edged sword, leaving many of its fans depressed in its wake. Is this unique to Avatar, or have video games been doing this for years? I explore the connection between the two.

  5. Polarity

    My inspiration and interest is one of absolute polarity. Not only does it have its highs and lows, but it completely flips direction. I have lots of interests and a bunch of enthusiasm for each. Even if I know I want to be in the gaming industry, which role would I assume?

  6. The Barren and the Hopeful

    An announcement from Remedy stated that in all likelihood, Alan Wake would not be released on the PC simultaneously with the Xbox 360, and that ultimately, Microsoft was responsible. But hey, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.

  7. What the Hell

    It seems that my worst fear has materialized, so terrible, I couldn’t have even imagined. ZeniMax Media Inc, parent company to Bethesda Softworks, acquires legendary independent game developer, Id Software.

  8. What Have We Achieved

    An in-depth criticism of the widely adopted achievement system, and why I think their inclusion in games is a step backwards.

  9. An Evening Spent with Eve

    Recently I decided to try out EVE Online. This is not an effort to unjustly review a game I’ve only spent an hour or two playing, but an attempt to rationalize the conflicting initial impressions I got from it.

  10. Hello Internets

    I’ve been working on my website on and off for a few months now, and it’s finally manifested itself into what you see before you.
