Unrealistic.

I stumbled upon Polygon’s summary of an article posted by Bulimia.com. While I do generally agree with what I feel the underlying message might have been, Some of the examples chosen and the modifications don’t really line up with the ideal being promoted. The use of the term “unrealistic” may not be fully accurate when describing these…

Gamestop and the digital marketplace

The “used” digital game is not a new idea, by any means. There have been several attempts at offering a service to purchased used digital games, which in all honesty sounds awkward. The idea of a digital “used” game. When thinking of games as a product, purchasing a game disc and the idea of using…

Cosplay, Do’s and Don’ts of body types.

Whatever you want to do, do it. That’s really the whole point of this, you can go home now. Seriously though, this is a topic I see every now and again popping up. Its almost as prominent as fat shaming, skinny shaming and whatever shaming. Now I’m not going to say I haven’t diverted my…

Growing up with what you love

In many ways through out life (in my life anyway) there have always been acceptable fandoms and unacceptable fandoms. I don’t mean like Twilight and Lord of the Rings, but more like sports and anime. In many ways while growing up, cartoons were “for kids” but not really for kids because have you seen how…

Why I like Indie Games

They’re cheap, that is all… move along. Okay, seriously, indie games represent an interesting enterprise in the gaming world.

Granted that also mean, almost ANYONE can make…

Character Creation

With Wildstar coming up, I’ve been playing some of the beta weekends here and there. My first couple of hours always tend to be the same, creating my character. Granted, the character I was making in beta wasn’t going to be the one I would be staring at for hours on end once the game…

Geeky Aspirations and Workout Inspiration

Growing up as a geeky guy, I’ve had the usual day dreams of many a nerd, dork, geek and dweeb before me. The idea of being a hero, being strong, being cool and running the legendary Mt. Midoriyama. Which led me down a path in which I’m pretty happy with today, and much better health…

Inside Looking Out

As a comic book, video game, technology, and basically what was once ridiculed as being geeky or nerdy enthusiast, especially in a more geek friendly society. I don’t really think about what image these hobbies and lifestyle are portrayed in the eyes of those who aren’t really part of it. Basically because I’ve kind of…

Identifying with an avatar

Many gameplay experiences are third person, you are, but you are not the protagonist. You are, as you control their actions, you tell them to move through this world and choose to help them proceed to the end of their story arc or just stop, waiting to be picked up again. (Even if you never…
