I am hardly the only one thoroughly (and still thoroughly) enjoying Borderlands 2. It seems five million people have graciously brought our Vault Hunter friends into their homes, trying to rid the world of Handsome Jack and Hyperion forever. An army of that size is certainly enough to do the job.
The news yesterday stunned the world: Disney acquires Lucasfilms for $4.05 billion. For a deal carrying huge implications on multiple industries, it’s unclear what Disney’s plans are for its newfound properties except to expand the Star Wars brand into another trilogy, the long-rumoured live action TV series, and other goodies.
When a controversy of this magnitude arises, it brings into question every method by which that industry operates. Rightly, games journalism is now under inspection from every reader, for PR affiliated and jingoistic sentences which beg criticism. And that is [...]
Say the two words “Assassin” and “Creed” and out of every crowd of ten, at least three people will embrace memories of stealthily killing guards on rooftops, influencing history for the greater good, and ultimately, saving the world. (Not based on any scientific study.)
I never intend to push heavily on one caustic topic post after post, but to avoid at least discussing it in some form is dishonest and deceptive.
From media, the reader expects absolute coverage. That all bases were considered and covered, proper and diligent research, and most importantly, a sense of justice and morality [...]

In what presents itself as a simple act of consumer courtesy — collecting reviews from various publications and issuing an average — Metacritic has changed the methodology publishers use in measuring a game’s success. It’s not strictly about sales anymore; the amalgamated review score is important enough that people have found themselves unemployed [...]
Hey guys, you may have noticed a change in scenery around here. I was tired of the bland look of the last six months, and that theme offered little malleability in its design choices. As is the case with many WordPress designs. But I found a recently added theme I’m content with for the time [...]
Every site owner reaches a critical point–about six months in–where he or she must decide whether continuing to pursuing that site is worthwhile. The issue could bare down to many things: the writer’s interest, the site’s traffic, obedience in sticking to a schedule, etc. Commonly, though, six months is the breaking point for many blog [...]
This is a part of the 30-Day Blogging Challenge, encouraging bloggers to produce more content. Try it yourself! These posts are intentionally short, limited to 300 words or less. They’re more to get you thinking with only a basis for the idea and to help formulate your own opinion.
Common issues that come up upon [...]
