Review: Aliens: Fireteam Elite

After a long wait, Cold Iron Studios has finally released Aliens: Fireteam Elite (AFE), and it has proven to be the best installation to the franchise since Alien: Isolation. AFE is an impressive labor of love that adds even more lore to the series while staying true to the accepted canon. While there have been […]

Book Review: Aliens Infiltrator

In the past few years, there have been several entries into the Alien franchise, and I’m not referring to the prequel movies. Titan Books has been publishing a lot of these books by partnering with sci-fi/fantasy writers like Alex White and Scott Sigler, and the results have been terrifyingly awesome. Each author expands the Alien […]

BLOG: Abandoned Spring

    I’ve had a lot of projects to work on lately, but I’m finally getting back to a point where I can do things like writing, watch movies, play games, and other recreations. Finally got the place fully furnished, set up a savvy office, started going to the gym regularly, and started a new tabletop […]

REVIEW: Alien RPG by Free League

Last year Free League, a Swedish gaming company, released the official Alien RPG tabletop game based on the hit cinematic universe published by 21st Century Fox. I bought the Player’s Manual and Starter’s Set on the month of release accordingly as the Alien movies encompass some of my favorite films of all time. There was […]

How Much Content Should Be Included in the Final Product?

Saying you’ve “beaten a game” now is far more obscure than “beating/finishing/completing” the video games of yesteryear. Video games made in today’s market rarely have a distinct ending wherein the game play comes to an end; this is especially present in AAA, high-budget games. So is this the best way to make a game? Is […]

Dec. 1, 2020 – A Special Update

It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to update this blog. But I’ve come back bearing great news. I’m unsure of where to start; there’s been a lot of change for me, and I’m finally starting to feel like I’m where I should be with things. I can’t get into the specifics, but […]

Blog post – July 29th, 2020

My apologies for the lack of written content lately. I’ve been making huge strides in my personal life–surprisingly, working at a bar that just opened. I do a little bit of everything there and it pays much better than I expected, so it’s nice.  I got a chance to play a bunch of games, so […]

King of the Hill appreciation

    King of the Hill (KotH) is such a quality show in terms of how the humor communicated and character design.  The ability to provide left-wing commentary from a right-wing perspective is brilliantly done by Mike Judge and this style has gone on to influence comedians like Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah. With tens of […]

Pokemon: Let’s Go! review

In the past five years or so, we’ve seen lots of remakes and remasters in both movies and video games. With nostalgia being the popular drive for content creation, Nintendo has jumped on the bandwagon with Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee/Pikachu as their pseudo-remake of Pokemon Red/Blue. I say “pseudo” because this game is very close […]

I graduated OSU with a Bachelor’s Degree in English writing, rhetoric, and literacy; hence, the reason I’m making such a blog. I had a […]
