My earliest memories of gaming involve a Nintendo Entertainment System, a television that still used tubes, a family room, and my brother. Before we even had a game where two people could play together, I remember sitting and watching my brother play Super Mario Bros. Occasionally, he’d let me play a life or two, but that was all I needed to get hooked. Pretty soon, games like Blaster Master and Final Fantasy were finding their way onto my Christmas list alongside the Transformers and GI Joes. I used to play so much that my family nicknamed me “Nintendo Boy”, a moniker that occasionally still gets brought up today. From the Nintendo I moved on to playing PC games, thanks once again to my family. I was too young at the time to really understand them, but my mom used to play the “Zork” series and I’d sit next to her while she played trying to contribute and follow along as best as I could. Nowadays I mostly play Playstation and Nintendo DS games, although I still occasionally sneak in a PC game or two and a large portion of my co-op time comes from playing with friends.

Aside from gaming, I also enjoy watching movies, listening to music (anything but country), re-learning to play bass, and reading authors like Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and whatever good science fiction/fantasy novel comes my way. It is my hope that one day I might be able to switch jobs from government contractor to full-time games journalist or freelancer. A man can dream, a man can dream…

You would never think that your best friend, your compatriot who has been with you through thick and thin, would suddenly turn on you and kill you; until they suddenly do. Perhaps their actions are not of their own design, however. Perhaps the terrible Mind Flayer has enthralled them. This is but one of the foes you will face in Sword Coast Legends next month.

Indie-Ana Co-Op and the Tactic Studios Interview

The free-to-play model of games has risen alongside the surge of mobile games and it often (at times, quite rightly) gets a bad name. However, not all free-to-play games are quite so onerous. In some cases, this model provides smaller developers an opportunity to get their title out the door and in the hands of gamers. Immortal Empire is one s...

New Taken King Screens and the Changes in Store for Destiny

The first year of Destiny has been a rather bumpy road. There have been some good moments, like the content in the "House of Wolves" expansion, and bad, like having to level up all your gear again. Developer Bungie has been saying they've been listening to all the feedback, and it looks like they were telling the truth.

Skylanders SuperChargers Will Support Online Co-Op

The "toys to life" series of games that the original Skylanders kicked off all those years ago has always lacked one thing in the eyes of us co-op loving gamers: online play. That will change with Skylanders SuperChargers. Now you and your friends can play through the game's Adventure Mode together through the interwebs!

Engage in Piracy, Mining, and More in Cashtronauts

One of my favorite gaming memories was running cargo for someone, or being a mercenary for hire in Privateer. While the in development Star Citizen is the same designer and promises much of the same, it also seems like it's all a bit much. Fortunately, there appears to be a game that offers the same concept with more straightforward twin-stick shooter mechanics in Cashtronauts.
