Hello and welcome to my blog in which I'll be reviewing as many games as my tragically small bank account will allow me as well as long-winded articles about my own thoughts and opinions about video games and their industry in general. I have been a lifelong gamer for nearly 30 years and an incredibly critical person. Basically I love video games, I play them, I read about them, I talk about them, I read about people who make them and well you get the idea. Long story short there are framed posters for games in my bedroom so that should give you some idea to the depths of my gaming-nerdom. My issue however is the growing amount of "reviews" that either professional or amateur are nothing more than fan-boy rants in an attempt to fit in and be accepted in the ever-growing gaming world. So in that line of thinking I've decided to carve out my own little corner of the internet where I pick apart games as critically as I possibly can. Not because I'm a negative bitch (well I am) but because in my opinion, a reviewer who points out every irritating flaw is far more useful that someone who spouts on about how Halo revolutionizes gaming and then you buy it and go "oh it's just another game where I shoot aliens with a laser." (for the record I am tragically a Halo fan-boy and celebrated "Halo 3 day" by not leaving my room until I finished the game 8 hours later) So here it is, I don't really have an overal goal for this blog in terms of a posting schedule or using "drafts" to make any of my thoughts remotely cohesive but I hope you enjoy it. If not, well you probably stopped reading a long time ago.
