The one where the honeymoon ended with Battlefield 3.


Other than a couple of months where real life so obnoxiously interfered with my BF3 gaming, I’ve been a hardcore fan of the title and have played it non-stop for nearly a year.  That’s why this post comes with reluctant sadness:  my days of love for the game may be coming to Continue reading

Jimmy Paperboy’s Zelda: Skyward Sword Review


I eagerly await the announcement of each new installment in the Zelda franchise.  Ever since Ocarina of time, I have committed myself to playing each game in the series with the exception of a couple of handheld games.  Skyward Sword was no different for me.  I went into a Continue reading

And then there was Madagascar…


When I first started law school, I found that the crippling boredom of Civil Procedure and Contracts could be somewhat abated if I played video games on my laptop.  Nothing too intense; I attempted to play Spore and The Sims a few times but it was too difficult to start up and run resource heavy games in class, plus it was time consuming and stupid to attempt to tab between the Continue reading

Battlefield 3 DLC – Close Quarters


I’ve been gone for two months, and in that time, literally nothing has happened in the video game or pop culture world.  That’s why it was such a pleasant surprise to me when I found out that the newest DLC for Battlefield 3, Close Quarters, was released yesterday.  I dusted off the ole Playstation, searched for my BF3 disc, and paid my cable bill.  And when I got online to get it, I Continue reading

Chevy Chase is kind of a dick.


Something has really been bothering me, and there is really no other way to say it.  Chevy Chase is, well, kind of a dick.  See, growing up my family and I would watch Christmas Vacation every year.  It is truly a classic and is our family’s “Christmas movie” in a way, much like lesser families flock to Jingle All The Way or something.  Anyway, I’ve always been a big SNL fan as well, and so I’ve always Continue reading

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 Continue reading

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 Continue reading

Retake Mass Effect: JSixGun Answers the Critics


Mass Effect 3 ended. Or did it? I don’t think we really know (i.e. the problem). Like all things internet, it has caused quite the stir however, and like all things internet, people have leaped at the chance to argue their opinions (my self being one of those louts).  Naturally, during any good internet controversy, some general themes are Continue reading

Battlefield 3 DLC: The Good, The Bad, The…


Battlefield 3 came out back in October, around five months ago.  And in that time I’ve sunk over 100 hours into the game.  As disappointed as my parents surely are in my life’s progression, and as clearly as my love life has withered, I’ve still managed to find happiness in what I considered 2011’s greatest game.  Not long after the Continue reading

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 Continue reading
