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!


I'm gonna get me an education.
November 12, 2010

A few nights ago, I was browsing online (as I am known to do) and I saw ads for online degrees in web design. This interested me, so I clicked to request more information. Now, a few days later, I find myself enrolled in an online university and taking the first classes on my way to an Associate's degree in that field.

Anime review: Toradora! Volume 2
November 02, 2010

When the second volume of "Toradora!" finally reached my apartment just recently, I tore into the packaging, tossed aside the deluxe episode guide that comes with the limited edition for just a moment and stuck in the first of the two discs. YOu'd think I'd just brought home the latest blockbuster video game or something, to look at me.

I doubt anyone would guess that "Toradora!" would appeal to me. My wife calls it my "cartoon soap opera" because she prefers anime with swords and sorcery or possibly big explosions. There's none of that masculine sort of thing in "Toradora!" and she dismisses it for that reason.

Announcing Gameroni
August 30, 2010

Some of you know that for the past several days, I've been working feverishly during nearly every one of my waking hours. The product of that work is a new web site that I am now ready to unveil to the world at large: Gameroni.

Some of you remember that I've used the domain name in the past for other sites that didn't work out. The difference between those sites and this site is that this site is definitely going to receive ongoing attention from myself and others. I'll be making sure of it. There's going to be a lot of great content and I can't wait to see how things evolve. You can find the site at the predictable URL:

Anime review: Toradora! Volume 1
August 06, 2010

I hadn't heard about "Toradora!" before NIS America announced that it would be localizing the series for a North American audience. A bit of reading on wikipedia explains that a little. Though based on a manga series, "Toradora!" is new enough that it hasn't had much time to develop a proper following outside of Japan and production seems to have been limited to 25 episodes. Of those, 13 are featured in the "Volume 1 Premium Edition" collection that made its way to my lowly apartment. The remaining 12 episodes will be released later this month, as well. Or so I hear.

Happy birthday, Canada!

You're a great neighbor, you don't suck at hockey and you're almost always cooler than we are... if only because it's so freaking cold up north! Enjoy the day of celebration!

Fable III to be released in episodic format
July 01, 2010

Kotaku is reporting that Fable III is going episodic. You can read the article here:

http://kotaku.com/5577016/fable-iii-going-episodic-downloadable

The phrase "Fable III is going episodic" had me a bit concerned when I started reading, because to me that implied self-contained chapters that break up the story a bit much. However, it seems to me after reading further that the term is misleading. "Episodic" means that the game's distribution will be handled in that manner--on an optional basis--which I actually find pretty cool.

You are always on my mind (an ode to retro game coverage)
June 25, 2010

I've been thinking a lot lately about retro game coverage and how much I like it. Current games are great. I really believe that. There's exciting new stuff nearly every week, and certainly I can't remember the last time that a month passed and I didn't see two or three titles that seemed like they'd make a nice addition to my growing collection of games. Yet for all of the strengths that gaming currently has, there's a part of me that can't forget retro gaming.
