This is a bit unusual, but I hope you’ll bear with me. I ended up making my PSN post from earlier this week into my weekly column. If you missed it, check it out. If you already read it, then… you already read it.
Now, The Escapist is a real online magazine and not just a blog-reposting machine, and having duplicate content is a no-no for them. They were cool with running my column, but not if I was also going to have it up at my blog. (There are a lot of reasons for this.) So I took it down here and put it up there. No big deal, right?
We had 104 comments on that post, and I didn’t feel right about nuking that entire discussion. So I moved that discussion to this post.
Sorry for the strangeness. And the lack of new content. My writer gland is thoroughly blocked right now. Hopefully I’ll have something novel to say next week.
Batman: Arkham City
A look back at one of my favorite games. The gameplay was stellar, but the underlying story was clumsy and oddly constructed.
The Best of 2017
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2017.
Project Button Masher
I teach myself music composition by imitating the style of various videogame soundtracks. How did it turn out? Listen for yourself.
The Loot Lottery
What makes the gameplay of Borderlands so addictive for some, and what does that have to do with slot machines?
Skyrim Thieves Guild
The Thieves Guild quest in Skyrim is a vortex of disjointed plot-holes, contrivances, and nonsense.
