About Me:

I knew at an early age that I wanted to make a career out of writing about games, and now I have. You'll find most of my stuff right here on HonestGamers, of course, but don't be surprised if my name pops up elsewhere. Living out my dream keeps me very busy, and I wouldn't have it any other way!


[NEWS] More Yakuza Is Headed West
December 03, 2016

Yakuza 5 took ages to finally release in the west, and when it did, that release was digital-only. It's a shame, because Yakuza 5 is one of the very finest games avaialble on the PlayStation 3. It deserved better treatment than it was afforded.

Fortunately, SEGA seems to have learned its lesson. Yakuza 0 has already been confirmed for a western release on physical disc, and today at PSX16, Sony announced that SEGA also has plans to release not one but two additional titles, also in physical form.

Do Consumers Really Have Time For This Week's Hot New Mobile Games?
November 07, 2016

At some point and for some reason (I think there was the promise of free in-game loot), I gave Square Enix permission to email me about its upcoming free mobile game, Guardian Codex. Today, I received a note in my inbox letting me know that the game is "upcoming" no more; you can download it right now from the App Store.

This was good news, so I downloaded and installed the game on my iPhone. The email mentioned that I can sign in daily for Codex Credits, which presumably will last during an introductory period while the game sinks its claws into me. That's a nice reward for my early interest. And yet, even though I have installed the game and it is taking up space on my phone, I'm not sure I will ever actually play it.

I don't see any point in rewriting things and getting them all wrong, now that Nintendo has revealed the NX (now officially and appropriately called the Switch, so I'll just be lazy/smart and share the press release the company issued this morning around 7AM (PST):

[NEWS] Developer Q&A: Ohayou! Beginnerís Japanese
October 11, 2016

Finger Gun Games, a two-person development team consisting of Cordero Wilson and Samuel Skidmore, has announced that its next project is Ohayou! Beginnerís Japanese. The title, due this Fall, is an educational game that aims to help players as they strive to learn and practice Japanese.

You can view a recent trailer if you would like to get a glimpse of the game in action. I watched it myself and, since I'm interested in learning Japanse and also like to see developers continuing to support Wii U, I had some questions that quickly morphed into a Q&A with Cordero Wilson.




Q: What made you decide to develop a game that teaches players Japanese?

Slight Site Tweaks
October 07, 2016

The site needed some slight changes, so I made them. Here is a roundup of stuff I changed today:


  • The site's main background image. Although a quick look at the site's front page tends to show that most new reviews coming through the site are for PC games, courtesy of both staff/freelancers and standard contributors, I've seen the occasional comment online from people who said the site really isn't for them because we don't cover PC games. The new background image includes a number of PC titles among the mix, and also some other games that have been a big deal on the site in particular over the years.

Spring Breakers review
September 27, 2016

Spring Breakers is the sort of movie that a person doesn't quickly forget, having once seen it. Unfortunately, that's not necessarily a compliment.

The premise is that four young girls are aching to get away to the Florida vacation spots on spring break. They've been good little college girls, but now they want to experience something different from their every-day drudgery. Unfortunately, they don't have a lot of money saved up for the big event, and so they steal a professor's car and hold up a diner and suddenly they're flush with cash... at least to a point that will allow them to take the vacation.
