My fiancée recently spent a semester abroad in Japan. This was a dream recognized for her. However, it was also really interesting for me to hear first-hand accounts of all kinds of Japanese cultural events and things that I previously had no clue about. The experience was endlessly interesting but was made even more interesting… Read More »

Let me begin by saying what most studies, polls, sales, and common sense has shown: Women and girls like gaming too. They like all sorts of games from casual to traditional, from Candy Crush Saga to Battlefield 4.

Last week at CES, Sony made headlines by announcing their new service, known as PlayStation Now.

My Xbox 360 exploded during the Summer of 2012. Initially, I thought this would mark the end of my gaming life. Not only were 90% of my games for Xbox 360, most of my friends were primarily XBLA users. It seemed like my 60 dollar subscription had flushed down the drain, as well as my… Read More »

2013 was a very good year for video games. It was a year in which indie games became an essential part of a game console launch as big game sequels were. This year’s crop of games offered a plethora of fun and unique storytelling, but of them all there was a game that stood head… Read More »

Beginning last week and continuing through this week, the biggest news on the internet seems to be YouTube’s rollout of their “ContentID” system.
