Hey guys, sorry about the hiatus of my blog posts. But all summer I�ve been busy with moving, working, and having very little fun in the plans. Then school decided to take over... Of the games that I�ve played over the the previous month...


Video Games Live (Minneapolis, MN) Night/Review

On April 10th, 2010, I was able to enjoy the ambiance of some orchestral music that was put on by the Minnesota Orchestra. But this was no ordinary night consisting of Bach or Beethoven. This night consisted of video game music. And it...


Heavy Rain Review

Heavy Rain Heavy Rain is the third game released by Quantic Dream. Their previous game, Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy was received very well within the gaming community. Even though a lot of the game was QuickTime Events (QTEs), people pl...


Borderlands Review (PS3)

Borderlands, the latest combination of FPS and RPG genres since Fallout 3. Personally, I haven't been able to get into Fallout 3, but Borderlands is much easier to get into. The learning curve isn't so big. When you pick up the control...


Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Review (PS3)

With the recent acquirement of a PS3, I played Uncharted 2 and found the game to be just as amazing as all the reviews said. For those of you who haven't seen the Playstation 3 commercial that has Uncharted 2 in it, here it is. It prett...


Gamer Defense (I did a presentation with this)

Gamers have gotten a really bad reputation in the past few years. Why? You ask. Well, consider this situation: There�s a school shooting. The police go through everything that this kid owns. They come across Call of Duty, or Halo, or Killzo...


BragGame Rights will be at PAX 2009!!!

Hey guys, just wanted to let anyone know that BragGame Rights will be at PAX this year. They'll be sharing a booth with Tritton (I believe). Coy will be there along with Master Chief, Joshua, and Parnell, expanding his empire, selling his...


Let's Tap (Wii) Review

Let's Tap is a new innovative game that was recently put out by Nintendo. You play it by setting the Wiimote face down on a box (or something similar) and you tap the box to do any of the games. It's sensitive enough to recognize the di...


Guitar Hero: Smash Hits (Wii) Review

(Holy crap, 2 reviews in a day?) There's not a ton to say about this game. There's not much new. I'm glad that they decided to keep the same basic layout as Guitar Hero: Metallica. I do have to say, however, that it's nice to go back ...


Tiger Woods PGA Tour '10 (Wii) Review

I've never liked golf games on the Wii, let alone sports games in general, but Tiger Woods PGA Tour '10 has gotten it right in how it was created. Tiger Woods PGA Tour '10 utilizes the new Wii Motion Plus, and using that, it makes the ga...


Punch Out!! Wii (Wii) Review

This game is amazing. I love how it's a huge throwback to the original Punch Out games. They kept key scenes that are just such a staple of the Punch Out games, in other words, the pink jumpsuit. The controls are really responsive when...


Trauma Center: New Blood (Wii) Review

Picture Courtesy of www.mwii.com.au Trauma Center: New Blood is the second installment of the Trauma Center franchise done for the Wii. The first one is Trauma Center: Second Opinion. The game, in my opinion, would be classified as a pu...


Professor Hienz Wolff's Gravity Review (Wii)

Picture Courtesy of hl.megashares.com This game is another one of those insanely addicting puzzle games. This is going to be a shorter review, considering there's not a ton to talk about this game. The game reminds me of a cross between...


God of War: Chains of Olympus Review (PSP)

Picture Courtesy of psp-tv.com This game is actually quite fun. The PSP controls are well done. I think you're a little too strong in the beginning, but that's not a HUGE deal considering the fact that it takes a couple levels to get us...


Excitebots (Wii) Review

Picture Courtesy of wiimedia.ign.com Excitebots is the "sequel" (kinda sorta) to Excitetrucks that came out right when the Wii was released. It definitely has a common feeling that came out of Excitetrucks, but has its little nuances. I...


Rune Factory Frontier (Wii) Review

Picture Courtesy of 3.bp.blogspot.com Rune Factory Frontier is almost exactly a copy of the Harvest Moon games. You farm, wander around town, and develop relationships with people in the town. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely a diffe...


Guitar Hero: Metallica Review (Wii)

Holy crap, this version of Guitar Hero is just as epic as the last few. Except this one has Metallica, which makes it even more epic. I'm just going to start off with the fact that I haven't beaten the game, nor have I messed around wit...


My F.E.A.R. 2 Review (Xbox 360)

Here's my explanation of my rating system. It's the "Sonic System." (notice the Sonic obsession?) (Shadow = 5, Sonic = 4, Knuckles = 3, Silver = 2, Robotnik (not Eggman) = 1 (adding "Super" makes it a half point higher, ex. Super Sonic = 4....


Applying for Internships

Yea, first blog, so I'm going to make it pretty blah. I'm applying for internships at gaming companies, so if you have any ideas, you should let me know. I've already looked at Valve, SEGA of America, Blizzard, EA, and Activision. But ye...
