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!


O.K. Computer is very good...
June 08, 2010

I can imagine myself listening to it again a few times, at least. I look forward to it, even.

Yes, I picked it up at work this evening. There was only one copy left and I didn't want to be stuck ordering it later if I wanted to give it a listen. I've now purchased both studio albums that the store where I work carries. They have three copies of a "Greatest Hits" CD, but I've always been the sort that prefers to avoid those in favor of the more comprehensive full-album experience. Some of my favorite songs from bands I like never make it to radio and "Greatest Hits" collections, after all...

In Rainbows, Picross 3D and the Team Tournament
June 04, 2010

Well, I finally broke down and decided to try giving Radiohead a listen. The album that I chose was "In Rainbows" because it's their newest--and therefore represents the band's current sound and not some ideal that fans fell in love with but which is no longer true--and because I respect the experiment that they tried with its release.

Congrats to Lewis!
June 02, 2010

Lewis has a brand new gig. He's not saying what, only that it's at a "brilliant" site and such, which leads me to guess Eurogamer or Rock, Scissors, Shotgun. In any event, it'll do well enough for him that he's hanging up his hat over at Resolution. He'll still be freelancing, so maybe someday that'll even mean more work here. I do hope to be able to pay freelancers in the future, after all. You can find his full post here:

I'm in an uncharacteristically good mood.
June 02, 2010

I wouldn't describe myself as a grumpy person or anything, but today I definitely feel that I'm in a better mood than usual and I can't really explain it. I didn't get as much sleep as usual (my wife woke me up early this morning for reasons unknown), but that doesn't seem to have caused the issues that it normally would. The skies outside are overcast and walking outside means walking into a miserable wall of wind-driven moisture, but that hasn't bothered me, either.

Chuck renewed, Monster Hunter Tri demolished.
May 17, 2010

Well, after more than 120 hours spent with the game, I've beaten Monster Hunter Tri and my guide has been submitted. It'll likely appear soon on a competitor's site and I'm very pleased about that, even as I start work on other guides. Hopefully, I'll produce a Monster Hunter Tri review soon for this site.

A twisted paradise
May 10, 2010

You have won a trip to paradise, but there is a catch: there's no Internet and you have to bring along three video games. You will be forced to play one or all of those games--the choice is yours--for eight hours of every day of the rest of your life. If you refuse, you will be shot and all of the beautiful women (and/or men), the spectacularly delicious sub sandwiches... it all goes away. What three games do you bring? Why aren't you playing one of those three games right now? Have you reviewed each of those three games yet on this site?

Impressions of a Just Cause 2 onlooker
May 07, 2010

I haven't had time to play Just Cause 2 yet and it's possible that I never will, but my brother-in-law bought a copy for Xbox 360 and sometimes I watch him play it while I'm getting other things done (like meaningless blog posts). Here is one such blog post.
