Twelve Years

Even allegedly smart people can make life-changing blunders that seem very, very obvious in retrospect.

 

Spoiler Warning:
Marlow Briggs

This game is bonkers. It's wild, it's crazy, and it makes no sense. You have to see it to understand the silly.

 

The Truth About Piracy

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

 

Spoiler Warning:
Fallout 4

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

 

Why I Hated Resident Evil 4

Ever wonder how seemingly sane people can hate popular games? It can happen!

 

Batman v. Superman Wasn't All Bad

It's not a good movie, but it was made with good intentions and if you look closely you can find a few interesting ideas.

 

The Gradient of Plot Holes

Most stories have plot holes. The failure isn't that they exist, it's when you notice them while immersed in the story.

 

Spoiler Warning:
Tomb Raider

We're usually pretty hard on reboots. So what did this game do that made us so happy?

 

Denuvo and the "Death" of Piracy

Denuvo videogame DRM didn't actually kill piracy, but it did stop it for several months. Here's what we learned from that.

 

Quakecon 2011 Keynote Annotated

An interesting but technically dense talk about gaming technology. I translate it for the non-coders.

 

Marvel's Civil War

Team Cap or Team Iron Man? More importantly, what basis would you use for making that decision?

 

Fixing Match 3

For one of the most popular casual games in existence, Match 3 is actually really broken. Until one developer fixed it.
