The last few years have been a wonderful time to be a Spider-Man fan.
So I figured I’d make a video essay talking about my favorite Spider-Man movies, video games and TV show.
I recently played all the Dishonored games and DLC back-to-back, and I really fell in love with the series and its creators at Arkane Studios.
Douglas Adams is my favorite author. His brand of comedy has inspired and delighted me ever since I discovered The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy science fiction books in my early teens.
It’s fascinating where the winding roads of history can lead you once you start heading down one of its paths. In this video, I journey from the video game Among Us becoming massively popular in 2020, and end up at Norwegian and British explorers racing toward the South Pole in 1911.
A few years ago, I shared my favorite song from each ‘Miracle of Sound’ Level album.
I’ve since made a Top 5 or 10 list for each album (depending on how big the album was).
In the last entry of my gaming backlog countdown I went from 30 games to 25, and checked off five games I played by myself. Two games on the PlayStation 4, and my last three games for the PS3.
Among Us is an online multiplayer deduction game from 2018 that became massively popular in 2020.
While the gameplay is inspired by party games like Mafia and Werewolf, the narrative backdrop is inspired by Ridley Scott’s Alien film from 1979 and John Carpenter’s The Thing from 1982.
Indie folk rock musician Jonathan Coulton turns 50 today, so here’s a 30-minute documentary I made about his career.
This is a video essay adaptation of my Why You Should Play Games article.
There are numerous physical and mental health benefits to gaming, but these are seldom on my mind when I decide to sit down with a game. Instead, what motivates me is to experience other lands, other worlds, even other identities. All from the comfort of my own living-room.
An immersive sim is a video game genre that emphasizes player choice. While Farming Simulator simulates the work of a farmer, and Microsoft Flight Simulator simulates the process of flying a plane, an immersive sim is designed for you to completely immerse yourself in a world and its story.
