Blogging is about writing. Sharing your perspective on the world, your progress through it. Yet there seems to be a line between sharing your perspective and explaining it, trying to justify it. It’s this line between “here’s what I experience” and “here’s why I’m right in what I think about it.”
BE WARNED: There’s going to be a lot of “methinks the gamer doth protest too much” in this article, so brace yourselves. See, this article is very much a ‘me’ piece. The video game, Halo 4, launches today. I’m backing-and-forthing on whether or not I’m going to buy it. Look, I could rabbit on about [...]
I won’t try and hold myself up as some kind of paragon of virtue when it comes to pirating material.

Surprisingly enough for a Jerry Bruckheimer pic, King Arthur is rather subdued; ultimately, I kept waiting for Something To Happen in this film, and nothing ever really did.
Check it out. Me, I’m ambivalent. I mean, it looks sort of cool… and yet a little too ugly, if you know what I mean. The Aliens APC was ugly, but cool. This… I think it’s that front end. It’s hard to see, of course, but – for my taste, I think the front end [...]
It’s 2003, eleven years after Terminator 2: Judgment Day. August 29th, 1997, the prophesied date of the machines’ nuclear revolt against humanity, came and went without incident, but John Connor (Nick Stahl) hasn’t let go of the fear that Judgment Day might still happen.
