It's not that I haven't bothered to change this, I just don't especially feel like talking about myself. Plus I'm really not that interesting.
There's been some question (okay, one) about whether I'm the same guy who writes for The Escapist. I am, and with that out in the open I'd like to point you toward a recent article that I think is very important to anyone who believes in reasonable, effective copyright in the digital age, and particularly Canadians.
I'm in the early stages of Grand Theft Auto 4. Glitchy mess. This is the PC version, by the way, which is plagued by no end of bugs and performance issues. But it's so damn good that I'm muscling through it anyway. The writing is just mind-bogglingly good; the characters, the dialog, everything really rings true despite the obvious caricature of the city and those who live in it. It really is a fantastic example of how "good," to use a vaguely-defined term, games can be.
It's also a blast to go crashing around the city in a stolen luxury sedan with Roman riding shotgun.
SO this guy says hey you wanna review some games and I'm like sure and he's like okay don't screw it up and I'm like okay but I have no idea what I'm doing here and I'm being totally honest about that up front so if you give me the green light on this then you're totally responsible for having to put up with the consequences. And then he was like, whatever, so I was like, okay.
And then I figured I might as well play around with this blog thingiedingie a bit. I still have no idea what the hell I'm doing. At this point I'm mostly just trying to avoid pulling a muscle.
