Project Frontier

A programming project where I set out to make a gigantic and complex world from simple data.

 

Zenimax vs. Facebook

This series explores the troubled history of VR and the strange lawsuit between Zenimax publishing and Facebook.

 

Spoiler Warning:
Mass Effect 3

Everyone was so worked up about how terrible the ending was that they overlooked how terrible everything else was. We're here to fix that.

 

Shamus Plays LOTRO

As someone who loves Tolkein lore and despises silly MMO quests, this game left me deeply conflicted.

 

Playstation 3

What was the problem with the Playstation 3 hardware and why did Sony build it that way?

 

Spoiler Warning:
The Walking Dead

This game had lots of false choice and barely any gameplay. So what made it resonate so powerfully with audiences?

 

Spoiler Warning:
Fallout New Vegas

At last, a game that merges the dark humor and depth of Fallout 1 with the modern gameplay of Fallout 3! Too bad it's so buggy.

 

Final Fantasy X

A game about the ghost of an underwater football player who travels through time to save the world from a tick that controls kaiju satan. Really.

 

How to Forum

Dear people of the internet: Please stop doing these horrible idiotic things when you talk to each other.

 

What is Vulkan?

There's a new graphics API in town. What does that mean, and why do we need it?

 

Tenpenny Tower

Bethesda felt the need to jam a morality system into Fallout 3, and they blew it. Good and evil make no sense and the moral compass points sideways.

 

Are Lootboxes Gambling?

Obviously they are. Right? Actually, is this another one of those sneaky hard-to-define things?
