    Feeling Rejected

    by  • February 24, 2015 • 0 Comments

    I’ve been hearing the phrase “Don’t self reject.” a lot with the writers I follow on Twitter lately. It’s pretty great timing for this to come up, too, as I’ve been having some trouble with some of my older stories, and I’ve been mulling over whether I should retire them altogether. I mean, after...

    Slow Progress

    by  • February 17, 2015 • 0 Comments

    There are a few things that have made writing a whole lot easier for me, and the biggest one was scheduling a set amount to get done every day. I expect two single-spaced pages of fiction every single day on top of whatever else I have to do. I used to just expect four...

Through sound and implication, the game is a stark look at a reality many of us ignore from a position of privilege...

    LISA is a game of painful decisions. I’m not talking about the typical video game decision making either, where the morality is so painfully obvious it may as well be choosing between killing puppies or not killing puppies. That kind of black and white, good and evil decision-making has no place in the world...

    Shovel Knight

    Many games have trouble reaching that sweet spot of perfection in what they do. Sometimes they’re too hard or too easy. Sometimes they feel too short, but at others they run on too long, cluttered by half-baked ideas that only pad the game. Sometimes there’s not enough music, or the music which is there...
