Skyrim Thieves Guild

The Thieves Guild quest in Skyrim is a vortex of disjointed plot-holes, contrivances, and nonsense.

 

Spoiler Warning:
Fallout 3

A long-form Let's Play of a classic that's probably overrated, and certainly dumber than it needed to be.

 

The Best of 2012

My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2012.

 

Spoiler Warning:
Deus Ex:Human Revolution

Is this a masterful improvement on modern shooters, or a dumbed-down bastardization of its predecessor? Can it be both?

Starcraft: Bot Fight

This Game is Too Videogame-y

What's wrong with a game being "too videogameish"?

 

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 Octant

A programming project where I set out to make a Minecraft-style world so I can experiment with Octree data.
