It’s February and that’s not love in the air. It’s more like rain and discord mixed with a slight breeze of despair from the recent electric bill and the plethora of school shut downs from the Mega-Flu. I’m not sure if anyone wants to see the ... more

Happy New Year friends! Okay, I may be a wee bit late, considering it’s almost February, but there’s nothing like starting a fresh year with eminent nuclear disaster and a new Tide Challenge or whatever Darwinian Sadomasochist Award thinning ... more

DeLoreans, Miami Vice, and video arcades. I blame two seasons of Stranger Things for my overwhelming desire to seek out reminders of the ‘80s for better or worse. When I heard about Chattanooga Billiard Club’s newish game room at their Jordan ... more

the final month of the year has arrived and the threat of another snowmageddon looms on cold gray skies. Demand for milk and bread will stay high until spring, if it ever comes. But as my Magic 8-Ball says, “Outlook does not look good”. more

Beneath the surface of all games exists an intricate code that reads between Cyrillic and ancient alien hieroglyphics to the untrained eye. As daunting as it appears, there exists some coding geniuses working inside and outside the gaming industry. more

Gaming is a lot like cheese. No, really. It’s all about the experience of the various flavors from around the world. Some games age very well and other games are downright rank and are better left in a dark cellar to putrefy in obscurity. more

Happy Autumn folks! I hope the taste of pumpkin spice and presale Halloween candy is keeping your spirits and blood sugar up as we forward-march into the depression oblivion that is winter. I’ve started my annual study of seasonal isolation early ... more

I’m going to let you in on a dark secret about my past: racing is in my blood. I came of age on the West Texas dirt tracks way off in the coyote brush amidst the stadium lighted islands that float far out in oil-field country. The roar of large ... more

Folks, I admit it wasn’t my idea. But no matter how crazy an idea is if dropped at my feet like a gauntlet, I have this philosophy: bite it and run around like an attention starved Pitbull! So I did, and what I found are parallel worlds just on ... more

When was the last time you moved through your world-space with ease, comfort and confidence? Do you just trudge along from points A, B, and C or do you dominate your daily waypoints with ferocity and gusto like some modern day urban warrior? more

Celtic and Viking mythology, a driven hero seeking to redeem the soul of a fallen lover through a Norse fantasy hell-scape? Shut up and take my money! Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is the latest release for English game developer Ninja Theory. more

Howdy gamers! I’m writing to you from the sun scorched plains of West Texas. That’s right, I’m a reverse Volunteer and semi-proud native of the “everything is bigger here” state. Summer is fading quickly and let’s face it, your thumbs could use a ... more

Greetings gamers! I hope the endless slew of summer game sales are keeping you well inside and saving your dollars from the nefarious sunblock companies. Of course, these days you don’t have to stay inside to keep those itchy hands busy this summer. more

Gaming is losing the stigma of pointless life consuming diversion it used to be known for. Indeed, one only has to check out the popular gaming channels on YouTube to see how much of a positive culture is emerging by supporting gaming ... more

Fear, dread, terror. Inside each of us exist pet horrors that are locked away inside haunted spaces within our minds. Many of us will often step inside these spaces to be thrilled and terrified out of mere enjoyment. We do this any number of ways... more

My 4-year-old daughter tends to offer illumination in some of the strangest places. I chalk this up to her unjaded and innocent mind being a wide open, sponging mechanism to everything under the sun. It’s an absolute joy to let her take ... more

I am going to be up front with this folks: it’s been abysmal in the triple A release market. Maybe my time-in-gaming-service has rendered me jaded with high expectations, but in my defense when you have watched the game industry evolve from 8 ... more

Folks I confess writing this column has been problematic. A year long relationship went away with a Willie Nelson song and lots of whiskey. But as I floated along Whiskey River I grabbed a life-raft and between bouts of self-loathing and blue ... more

I’m not an easily excitable person, many who know me find it hard to get a rise out of me. It’s possibly my gruff veteran interior and growing up in a stoic household. So being a bit of a stick-in-the-mud when it comes to new releases is just ... more

It’s overwhelming to hear the lamentations of my girlfriend and my bank account as I start making my videogame wish-list for the year. Considering we barely survived the Steam Winter Sale of 2016, most of my consolations go ignored. more
