The Backlog Diary – Entry #1

I’m not expecting to post full reviews of the games I play over the next few years, but I do feel like I need to vent about some of them – some in a good way, some maybe… Read More

Better than I thought I could be

I was a pretty damn lucky kid. From the day I was born, my parents paid into a trust fund for my post-secondary education.  Whenever the time came for me to choose a college or university, my only… Read More

Claude Speed: Worst Name in Gaming History?

I’ve mentioned it a time or two already, but editing video game cutscenes together has been a hobby of mine for a long time now.  Not only does it give me an opportunity to unwind after a long… Read More
