New Super Mario Bros. 2 Blur Effect – A Mistake?

Hey Nintendo. I’ve got something to say. Yesterday I received my brand spanking new copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 for my Nintendo 3DS. I literally have not been following it in the news, knew nothing about any premise or setups, and chose to be pleasantly surprised by whatever the game had to offer.

Thor: God of Thunder – Birth of a female troll

Last year I was honored with the task with directing the DS version of Thor: God of Thunder. Working closely with Marvel and SEGA I came up with a story which featured a Troll invasion in Asgard as the catalyst for all events in the game, and gave us a group of enemies which would

Super Mario Bros. 2 Pixel Painting

Back in 2011 I began a painting of one of my favorite games, made specifically for this uniquely sized canvas I found. Here are a few images showing the progress. I really, really want to finish this one. More to come, I promise! Please like & share:

The value of a games length (or it’s short so it sucks)

Recently I was incredibly fortunate to be a part of the team for Mighty Switch Force!

If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Another

Fair warning, spoilers ahead. Now on with it! Bulletstorm. I bought it for my wife for Valentine’s Day and she absolutely loved it. It is an incredibly fun and over the top game. One of the things my wife really liked (aside from the Acid Rain skillshot) was the character Trischka, the strong female lead

The problem with game credits

I have a problem with game credits, and it isn’t just people not getting recognized for the work. It’s that a multitude of games’ credits can not be accessed without playing through the game, which itself can be a laborious and time consuming task. I would argue that a large percentage of people who have

My Love For Dark Water

It was recently announced that the complete series of “The Pirates of Dark Water” is being released to DVD. Wired.com is having a little contest to win a free copy of the DVD, so rather than spend my money to support one of the most important pieces of media in my life, I will put

Why all the swearing?

Recently I was touting the amazing time I am having with Monday Night Combat to my buddy at work: “Oh man me and the wife were playing split screen and shooting a bunch of robots and it’s so worth the money because can play online or locally” and then my jaw melted and fell of
