Dead Space 3 Review

27 Feb

Earlier this week Gamesabyss posted my review of Dead Space 3, which I am reposting here. I am a huge fan of the Dead Space franchise but grew wary of the threequel when it was revealed at E3 that it would take place primarily on an ice planet called Tau Volantis and feature co-op play. [...]

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? [...]

The Future of COD

17 May

Head over to Games Abyss to read my latest editorial. Man, it feels good to write for them again and not have to keep my mouth shut because of arbitrary rules set up by halfwits named Juan Martinez. In all likelihood, my lay off and this article will prevent me from ever working for Activision [...]

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 [...]

F.E.A.R. 3 Review

11 Jul

It may be almost a month late, but hey- I ain’t gettin’ paid so what did you expect? Anyways, head over to Games Abyss to read my review of last month’s F.E.A.R. 3, the new installment in the psychological horror/FPS title. Sadly, it lacks the pants-staining terror of previous titles, but in all other aspects [...]

The Chinese Democracy of Videogames

21 Jun

Most gamers have heard of Duke Nukem Forever. A sequel to the classic Duke Nukem 3D, it’s been in development since 1996 and everyone pretty much assumed it would never see the light of day, until Gearbox purchased the property in 2008. Now it’s out. And it’s not that great. While funny, it’s old and [...]

The Splode Beneath My ‘Splosion

14 Jun

Head over to Games Abyss to read a preview of one of my most anticipated games of the summer, Ms. ‘Splosion Man. It’s the sequel to an awesome side-scrolling platformer for Xbox Live Arcade of the same name sans the “Ms.,” and I recently got selected for an early beta preview of the game. Like [...]

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.
