As a 12 year old boy, most are not thrown into a puzzle filled mansion where they have to figure out how to get through a room and use the puzzling words of their uncle, who is piped through the intercom system, to help them.

Anyone who knows me for any length of time knows that I am an unashamed fan of Walt Disney World. With this information, it shouldn’t be any wonder that I’m always thinking of ways to improve the parks in much the same way that I ramble on about the video game industry in my “Most… Read More »

Comments Off on 2011 Staff Picks: Best Storyline

Best Storyline: Portal 2 (Developer: Valve; Publisher: Valve Corp) I’ve always said that for narrative-focused games, a story is the framework that developers mold the rest of the game around. A good story is more than a premise and much more than a checklist of objectives. The fiction of the Portal 2 universe carries over from… Read More »

Comments Off on One Geek Girl’s Robot Love

  It is a truth as old as geekdom.  Robots are freakin’ fascinating.  These creatures of artificial intelligence provide endless entertainment to the masses.  Is it the way they mimic human characteristics?  Is it the way they analyze without emotion in an age of touchy-feely political correctness?  Do we control them or will they ultimately… Read More »

Comments Off on Nerd Rage: Save and Quit

One of my first introductions to gaming as a child was with Super Mario Bros. for the NES. I would spend countless hours traveling the land, memorizing where the  pipes and secret blocks were, fighting off goombas, and trying to finish the game in one sitting. Why one sitting you ask? Super Mario Bros. didn’t have… Read More »

Comments Off on 10 Items and Powerups I Wish Existed

When video game characters like Mario, Zelda, and Master Chief all need help, they receive power-ups. This is great for video game characters, but what am I supposed to do when life’s struggles come my way?
