Why I Write: A Look At How Videogames Have Shaped Me

Preview: Spies vs. Mercenaries in Splinter Cell Blacklist

Splinter Cell Blacklist ​is bringing back one of my favorite multiplayer experiences of all time. As a young gamer in the early days of Xbox Live it was a one of a kind experience that only enhanced my love of the stealth-action genre. Of course I am talking about the Spies vs. Mercenaries mode that is making a comeback in Blacklist​.

Dead Island: Riptide Review

​How do I even start talking about ​Dead Island: Riptide​? We could start with Dead Island ​I think. The original game had a lot of great ideas mixed in with some new game jank. Dead Island​ was a new take on the open world genre, and while it had a lot of technical issues it also brought with it a certain charm. That charm worked the first time around, and it was a good starting point for the game series. Dead Island: Riptide ​feels more like an expansion pack that Deep Silver has dubbed a sequel and charged full price for.
