Overused Words in Game Titles

I scoured the Steam database to figure out what words were the most commonly used in game titles.


Starcraft: Bot Fight

Let's do some scripting to make the Starcraft AI fight itself, and see how smart it is. Or isn't.


Seven Springs

The true story of three strange days in 1989, when the last months of my adolescence ran out and the first few sparks of adulthood appeared.


Why The Christmas Shopping Season is Worse Every Year

Trusting the System

The Best of 2014

My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2014.


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.

A screencap comic that poked fun at videogames and the industry. The comic has ended, but there's plenty of archives for you to binge on.


The Witch Watch

My first REAL published book, about a guy who comes back from the dead due to a misunderstanding.
