Giving Up Gaming 5 – Your Cool Uncle

Giving Up Gaming 5 – Your Cool Uncle

So, let’s rap. If I were a cool uncle (I’m an uncle, just not a cool one) I’d pull a chair up and sit on it backwards. Let’s talk about how uncle is maybe not the best person. In my last post I went on a tirade, a weird one. If social media has taught me one thing, it’s that you put your best foot forward on the internet. It’s a highlight reel of your life, most...[Read More]

Giving Up Gaming 4 – Pleasure Center

Merry Holiday of your choice, nondescript and easily offended gray blobs of the internet. Here’s hoping it gave you joy in a way that brought no pain to others. Except for the jerks who DDoS’d PSN and XBL. You guys just made everyone’s lives a little more miserable. Why? In the past few weeks I’ve done a few things, one of them has been continuing to read. In my long sojourn with...[Read More]

Giving up Gaming 3 – The Bells of Change

One. Month. It has been one month since I started cutting games back to one day a week, and good things are going down!

I live in a very poor area and so I did not expect to see much come out of my community. I w...[Read More]

BEYOND 300 – Channeling the Hot Crew

I was practically bouncing and literally buzzing with excitement as I counted down each of the last 7 days leading up to Beyond (BEYOND!) 300 on Twitter. That excitement turned into distress and turmoil when I found out my plane was delayed an hour and a half. Determined to ma...[Read More]

In Memory of Ryan Davis

As we all well know, a dear friend to all gamers, Ryan Davis, recently passed away. Both Kenny and I were fans of his work and thought we might share a post, detailing our remorse for his demise. Kenny: I was in Edmonton International Airport when I was scrolling my Facebook feed on my phone, only to come across a Kotaku story that said “Ryan Davis,RIP” My heart sank like a rock. I fir...[Read More]

Gears of War 3 and My Brush With Death

Gears of War 3 and My Brush With Death

It was September of 2011, a mere few weeks after I had begun to work here with LevelSave. My social life was near non-existant, and outside of reviewing War Worlds on the Xbox Live Arcade, my only plans for that month were to make it to the Gears of War 3 Midnight Launch to pick up my Epic Edition, Gears 3 Console, and Retro Lancer Replica. Monday, September 19th I planned to arrive at GameStop ar...[Read More]
