Modern Warfare 3 DLC: Liberation and Piazza

For months now I’ve hated on Modern Warfare 3, complaining of its unoriginality, bemoaning it’s failures in comparison to Battlefield 3, and in general just letting it collect dust while I enjoyed other games.  But I had an epiphany last weekend.  When a friend of mine came over for drinks, we ended up playing MW3 the entire night.  This is because, despite all it’s percieved faults, MW3 did

My Addiction: Breaking Bad

For those of you not keeping up with Breaking Bad (and honestly, shame on you) don’t worry, there won’t be any spoilers here.  Truthfully, I doubt there is anything I hate more than spoilers.  And even more truthfully, I doubt there is anything I love more than Breaking Bad.  And while I’ve spent time on this site espousing the joys of Community, Arrested Development, and even the infallible Seinfeld, we mustn’t forget that the epitome of good television lies within the realm of drama.  Just like two

Blues Funeral – Mark Lanegan Band

Though I came to the game late, I’ve been a loyal fan of grunge music almost all my life.  Unfortunately though, by the time I got old enough to go to, and enjoy, concerts, most of my favorite bands were long gone.  For whatever reason, that style of music always spoke to me in a way that no other genre has been able to.  But seeing as I’m 26 now, I missed the heyday of it all and have to accept that all the music, all those albums are from the past.  It is a sobering thought when I realize that Nirvana’s

Have you heard of the new free to play MMO coming out? If you read the title to my article; congrats, now you do. If that doesn’t make you want to load up the giggty gun you must be an American Dad fan. Actually, I am too. I find Roger’s plight of an outsider who constantly tries to meld in to western culture quite alluring. In vino veritas, right?

Open letter to DICE

Dear DICE,

It’s no secret that you’ve created an amazing game with Battlefield 3.  I bought it on a whim while picking up Arhkam City and haven’t put it down since.  Skyrim took a two month hiatus just so I could pad my Battlelog stats a little more.  I’ve now got service stars with 17 weapons and all assignments but one.  I wrote, when I first got the game, that no BF3 multiplayer game is the same and that they all leave you with crazy stories.  This still holds true

The Bayonet

This Thanksgiving I found myself at a table with my uncle and my cousin’s grandfather, veterans of Vietnam and World War II respectively.  We talked about normal family things, but at some point the conversation turned to war.  With great interest I listened to them exchange stories about the forests of Alsace Lorraine and the jungles surrounding Saigon.  It was at this point that my uncle began talking about Vietnam and his experiences there as an 18 year old Marine.  It’s not hard to feel lazy and sheltered when you’re listening to someone recall their
