David Wilcox's Blog


I write video game reviews for The Citizen, a daily newspaper in Auburn, N.Y. My reviews are also published in The St. Louis Post-Dispatch and other Lee Enterprises publications.

My writing has earned me several awards in arts/entertainment criticism from the New York State Associated Press Association and Suburban Newspapers of America, including two first-place honors from the NYSAPA in 2008 and 2010.

Letting players switch to a super-easy mode at any point in the game a la Dragon Age is a better way to do this, I think. Gives them the whole experience without the headache. But I guess it's one step at a time with Rockstar and difficulty levels.
