I spent 8 years as a professional game journalist -- first at Game Informer, then freelancing around willy-nilly. I shipped 3 games at THQ, writing/designing/directing a trio of WWE video games.

My first novel is titles Still Man Fights, and it's available on Kindle or paperback at Amazon. I'm also a SAG-AFTRA union actor and an experienced stunt fighter.

I played through Guacamelee a few months back, getting 100 of in-game items. r nI was not a huge fan of the art style, though I appreciate doing something less common. Maybe living in LA, I see that Dia de los Muertos aesthetic too often. Perhaps characters could have used ...

The ad was an attempt to go viral. Marketing companies/departments have been trying this for over a decade, and they miss more than they hit. That 's how all viral things are. r nI personally thought the ad was clever enough. With more console, iPhone, and PC games than I ...

I, like you Christian, never got into the whole groups thing. Just because I share an interest with someone does not make me similar to them in most ways, nor does it mean that we will be fast friends. I was probably the last person in my area to understand ...

What a great success story. I 'm happy for Wargaming. After seeing their flight game at E3, I predict even bigger things in their future.
