This week on Extra Credits, James and company seem to have been reading my mind when they aired the latest episode, Game Compulsion. I remember last year he published a very personal and moving episode sharing his experience with game compulsion and depression. He’s very careful not to use the term addiction and […]
Around the sphere maturity seems to have been the theme making its rounds. It must be in the air. I haven’t taken the time to write about it much the past few weeks, but I’ve seen reminders of it everyday and in my RSS feed.
I also don’t do enough round-ups here, so get a […]
Ok, so I kinda stole the “edition” idea from Spinks today (the last linkspam there was really great to me) because tonight I finally did something I’d been planning to do for at least all of 2012, but hadn’t gotten around to: signing up for Raptr.

Where’s the free trial? It’s quite possibly the only way I’ll buy an MMO anymore (except for Guild Wars 2). Try it before I buy it. Are you game Funcom? Or will the freebies remain your ace in the pocket when subscriptions dip? Never understood this tactic ….

This is kinda disgraceful for their part. There was nothing to deny.
Here’s this week’s statement from Darrell Gallagher about the non-existence of a rape threat scene in the Tomb Raider trailer shown at E3.
…and the video with the rape threat scene. Skip straight to the pertinent part here. […]
I’ve been quietly watching all the news regarding the Diablo 3 launch. I’ve given some of my thoughts on the game itself and also posted two of my experiences with getting the game to work. Even just two weeks ago it was easier for me to assume that, overall, this was probably an […]
First a brief response to the Gamasutra article which managed to get published with bad information despite claiming to be getting info from the source (they have since corrected the errors, such as removing the title of CEO from Curt; honestly how hard was this information to find?).
Former employees loving the kind of boss […]
