New Games Abyss Article on Videogame Violence

20 Feb

I’m still writing for Games Abyss and am trying to ramp up the number of posts I produce for them. This editorial was published yesterday- basically my thoughts on violent video games role in the current debate over real world gun violence. My mortal enemy is censorship, so you can imagine what my opinion is [...]

At Long Last, a New Games Abyss Article

20 Aug

Even though I’ve been pretty busy lately, what with job searching and interviews and my budding screenwriting career, I still found some time to write another editorial for Games Abyss. This one’s about my most anticipated game of the fall, Assassin’s Creed III, specifically my speculation on what role the character of Desmond Miles will [...]

Could Co-Op Ruin Dead Space?

18 Jun

I’m a huge fan of the Dead Space franchise, and Dead Space 2 was one of my favorite games of 2012. I was really excited to see some footage of the upcoming threequel at this year’s E3, but EA and Visceral’s press conference left me, well… underwhelmed. Co-op? Why? Ice planet? Why? Cover system? Why? [...]

My Glorious Return to Games Abyss

26 Apr

Now that I’ve been laid off and released by Activision from the bonds of thralldom, I can once again do something I actually enjoy: writing about videogames. That’s right, I’m back at Games Abyss and free to write as many editorials and reviews as I damn well please. First up is my take on one [...]

Microsoft’s Kinect is Still Kinda Lame

10 Jun

A couple of days ago I watched Microsoft’s E3 press conference on Spike TV and then wrote about it on Games Abyss. Like last year, the conference was heavy on Kinect, and despite the awesome capabilities of the technology, the games still look pretty shitty. Read my take here.

Cinematic Game Trailers- Beautifully Rendered Deception

6 Jun

If you follow videogame news, even with a mild passing interest, then you’ve probably heard of Dead Island. Announced back in 2008, this “zombies on a tropical island” adventure was thought to be dead and buried until an incredible, emotionally wrenching teaser trailer was released a few months ago. It showed a family being attacked [...]

Creating a Hype Monster With Modern Warfare 3

24 May

Fresh off last night’s gameplay reveal trailer, I’ve written a new editorial about this year’s soon-to-be record-breaking smash hit, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Some of you may recall that I wrote a whole article about how much better Battlefield 3 is going to be and how it’s finally going to manage to topple [...]

The New Face of Lara Croft

9 May

Head over to Games Abyss to read my newest editorial, an in-depth look at the new Lara Croft and her upcoming reboot, a new game entitled simply Tomb Raider. Lara Croft has always been a videogame icon, but was often regaled more for her cup size than for her personality. Developer Crystal Dynamics hopes to [...]

Mortal Kombat: Legacy- An Awesome Webseries You Should All Be Watching

19 Apr

In case you weren’t aware, last week saw the release of a new webseries designed to promote this week’s new Mortal Kombat game, entitled Mortal Kombat: Legacy. It’s awesome, and if you’ve ever watched any webisodes before, you’ll likely be blown away by its high production values. Now don’t get this confused with Paul W.S. [...]

Anonymous vs. Sony

19 Apr

Head over to Games Abyss to read an editorial I wrote about the recent struggle between hacker group Anonymous (of Wikileaks fame) and Sony, who was attacked recently after taking legal action against some kid who had figured out how to run pirated software on the PS3. It’s a tricky issue, and I really don’t [...]
