A Game in the Life
2 weeks
It's more than amusing to see how my gaming habits have changed as I've made the transition from bored teenager into responsible adult. Gone are the days when I could finish a full-length title in a weekend, the days when I could spend weeks honing my skills to beat the next-door neighbor at Street Fighter II Turbo, the days when I would save up cash to buy the next game on my wishlist since it wouldn't come out for another four months. The requirements on my time have increased dramatically. At the same time, the gaming industry seems to have changed a bit as well, and it offers experiences that seem to be tailored to those of us who grew up in the NES era but can no longer devote the same attention to the medium that we used to. ...
Baron's Blitz: Our greatest fear
3 weeks
I think one of the most frequent questions posed to me in my time doing Dead Air/Ghost in the Podcast has always been what scares me most. On the show there are always the jokes of my fears of the eight legged spawns of Satan who are not-so-secretly attempting to devour my very soul (All hail Arachnos!), but the thing is in reality I can handle myself somewhat gracefully when dealing with my arch-nemeses. Even as they (deliberately) build their webs at perfect eye level. The reality, however, is that I've never discussed what really scares me on the show. The truth of my deepest fear isn't something as entertaining as spider orbs, their real life brethren, or those tense moments walking down a long hallway in Amnesia as I run dangerously low on kerosene for my lamp. As much as those things scare me, as discussed on the show, there is a difference between 'safe' fear and 'real' fear. What I want to tell you about here is my 'real' fear. ...
Can We Close the (Gamer)Gate Yet?
1 month
Unless you religiously follow video game news websites, you probably have no clue what's up with the #GamerGate hashtag currently proliferating through social media right now. I did some research and investigation, and the more I found out about the controversy, the more convinced I am that everyone involved in the world of video game journalism, whether reader or author, is out of their damned minds. ...
I'm not fat, I'm a pro gamer
3 months
While browsing Netflix the other night looking for a decent date night movie to watch, the title  caught my attention. The premise is that video games have become the most popular competitive sport on the planet, and so talented gamers come to this fictional school to hone their skills, while dealing with most of the typical high school comedy tropes. The idea that competitive gaming would somehow surpass, say, the NFL or World Cup soccer in popularity sounds a bit ridiculous right now. Still, tens of millions of spectators tune in to Twitch channels and other live streams to see fighting game tournaments like Evo and MOBA tournaments like The International. A tournament for League of Legends last year sold out the Staples Center in Los Angeles in an hour. The numbers (and prize pools) don't lie, competitive gaming is a thing and it's taking off. ...

Neutrality is Overrated
3 months
It's frightening how misunderstood the issue of net neutrality is right now. I'd like to place the blame on Netflix CEO Reed Hastings for this mess. He co-opted the term as part of his PR campaign against Comcast, Verizon, and other ISPs to build public and social media support for his company. Truth is, streaming video services like Netflix have basically broken the internet, and they're all just fighting over who's going to pay to fix it. It'll be us, the consumers, in the end regardless, but they're still fighting over who's keeping the bigger share of our money. ...
Destiny Public Alpha Impressions
4 months
In conjunction with E3, Bungie allowed all who had a PS4 and signed up for it to try out their alpha build of Destiny through the weekend. Since I've been looking forward to Destiny since it was announced I signed up as soon as humanly possible. I waited patiently (i.e. doing everything short of murder to pass the time) for the email that would contain my code for the alpha. When I had finally received my code, I immediately set off for adventure. ...

I was gonna take on another serious topic, like how stupid people think that net neutrality is going to give them faster Netflix, or how the UC Santa Barbara shooting got turned into a women's rights movement, or even how Microsoft has apparently given up on their vision with the Xbox One, but quite frankly, you guys aren't paying me enough to be serious all the time. So instead, I'm just gonna brag about my new toy. ...
