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…

Cry havoc and let slip the Tetris pieces of war

Defend Your Land and Blow Up Your Neighbors in Castle Chaos

This indie title slipped off our radar last fall, but it hadn't been forgotten, Castle Chaos is a local multiplayer game for up to four people, or you can team up with friends to take down A.I. enemies. Anyone who remembers Rampart from the olden days of gaming may find the title's action quite familiar. Build up your castle using "Tetris-like" pieces, place some cannons inside, and blow up your neighbor.

If you cast your thoughts back to summer of 2015, you may recall news of a new FPS title that looked like a mash-up of Doom and Minecraft, titled Gunscape. The game's biggest hook is that it  will allow a group of up to eight local or online players - on the Xbox One and PC versions only - to create their own levels together. Word has finally come down that it will arrive on the Xbox One this March.
