Spoiler Warning:
Fallout 4

Is Fallout 4 the greatest videogame ever made? No. No it is not.

 

Spoiler Warning:

Knights of the Old Republic. It's charming, odd, glitchy, and captures the feel of classic Star Wars better than 90% of the Star Wars games out there.

 

Project Frontier

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

 

The Truth About Piracy

What are publishers doing to fight piracy and why is it all wrong?

 

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.
