Tales from “The Island”


I was in 8th grade at the time, a magical age where I combed my hair over to the right every morning and still clearly recalled a time when Pizza Lunchables could get you full.  Stick Stickly’s career was at it’s peak on Nickelodeon and we all believed, as a nation, that he could go on to do bigger and better things.  After school I would get in the car with my dad to continue my training

Red (and Blue) Dawn – A Pokemon Conspiracy


I’m not one to believe in conspiracy theories.  I mean sure, I believe Courtney Love killed Kurt Cobain, but when it comes to moon landings, JFK, and all manner of other nefarious plots, I always believed what I was told.  I was happy, quiet, complacent, and most importantly of all, I was blind.  I was a sheep.  Wake up every morning, go to

A Comprehensive Look at the Mass Effect 3 Ending


My Thoughts (Spoiler Free):

Five years invested in one of the most brilliant games to ever grace my eyes. Five year’s culminating into the end of Mass Effect 3 and I was left saying, “What?” If you’ve read the interwebs in the last week, you’ll know I wasn’t

SimCity 5


A while back I wrote a nostalgic story about my love for all things SimCity and my sadness over the atrophied brand.  It seemed as though the franchise had ended and withered from neglect, overshadowed in Maxis’ eyes by their larger series, The Sims.  And though I’m pretty brand-loyal, I went out searching for alternatives.  I found Cities XL 2011, which seemed to be something quite
