++Review – The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

The holiday season has come, and the holiday season has gone; and while most of us have had to readjust back to our typical selves and into the doldrums that is our daily routines, I, for one, have changed forever. This isn’t a New Year’s resolution kind of thing, nor is it a lesson learned […]

Nintendo: A History of Odd Decision Making

Back in 1983 when Nintendo entered the market in Japan, they were known mostly as a company that made playing cards and the occasional arcade game.  Sure, they had been dabbling in games since the 1970’s, but when the Famicom first surfaced, gaming in Japan was dominated by computers.  It’s closest rival was Microsoft’s MSX series of […]

E3 2013 – And the Winner Is:

We are. Gamers are the winners of E3. When Sony and Microsoft first revealed their next generation consoles a few months ago, I was right there with everyone else: vomiting negativity and incredulity.

++Review: Bioshock Infinite

Ken Levine is a champion of this medium. I’ve been touting him as such since he wrote the wonderfully memorable Bioshock,  released six years ago in 2007; and whether he simply stumbles into his genius accidentally due to excellence in execution, or realizes his fresh, poignant plot devices through an exorcise in intended intellect, it is no matter. No […]
