  • More Street Fighter IV Impressions [Sony, M$]

    I’ve continued to play Street Fighter IV and here are some observations I’ve had about it: Ken is a very popular choice for Ranked Matches and it drives me nuts. I can’t count how many times I’ve been crossed up, crouch hard kicked into a Hadoken and Shoryuken. Luckily, I’ve gotten much better at blocking […]

    Insert another credit, because it’s time for your weekly video game news and you’ve just hit the Game Overview screen. With every Final Fantasy game there exists great (and not so great) teams of heroes bent on saving the world from some sort of evil force. While we could take a look at those heroes, […]

    If it’s Thursday, it means one thing for me nowadays: I’ve just watched the latest episode of LOST! WARNING: SPOILERS FOLLOW!

Gamers everywhere rejoiced when they saw the brand new teaser trailer released for ME2. SPOILERS All I can say after […]

  • SF IV [Sony, M$]

    I’m not quite ready to leave SF IV yet, so let me just say that the game is fun in a way I’ve missed for a long time. Fighting games have been trying to capture the same awesomeness of SFII since its launch; the original was just that iconic in arcades. Nowadays, the arcade is […]


    Deep from the trenches, it’s time for your Monday video feature: Embedded Reporter. The fighting game sensation that swept the nation is back once again. Street Fighter IV has been kicking me in the pants repeatedly after I picked it up yesterday. More impressions later. For now enjoy the REALLY long intro. It starts out […]

  • 25 Random BASEBALL Things About Me

    When Schneider tagged me in her version of this I almost pulled a Linus Torvalds (, but instead I decided not to do one at all. Then I came across two “25 Random Baseball Things” articles and fell in love with the idea as a way to release pent up excitement about the upcoming baseball […]
