Cutting through the fog.

I do, on occasion, have thoughts that are larger than 140 characters.

Cold weekend thoughts.

It’s really cold out, and my mind wanders.

Who’s your games criticism role model?

What we really need is a Jane Jacobs of games criticism: someone who can speak with clarity and urgency about the world we live in and its problems, and can point the way to real solutions.

A dangerous discovery.

I may never get any work done again.

Unga. Unga Bunga.

Writing is hard.

NBA Street V3. (PopMatters)

My review of NBA Street V3 is up at PopMatters.

So. So? So!

I’m a total idiot when it comes to grammar, so there’s probably some part of speech that I’ve never heard of that explains the use of “so” at the beginning of a sentence. If there is, will someone let me know before I drive myself nuts?

Games journalism, new and old.

Setting up an opposition between the everyday game reviews that UK Resistance defends and the more reflective pieces that the Guardian promotes is an apples/oranges affair; the only thing the two types of writing have in common are that they both concern video games.

What do we want out of games journalism?

The question is whether you can get all this writing moved off the web and into print, and if you do, whether anyone will buy it.

Writer’s Block.

It’s all bad.
