The more I’ve thought about the new hot controversy in the gaming industry, the more my mind kept bringing me back to a stand-up bit from Louis CK (I know he is not the best person to bring up in a conversation regarding women right now, but bear with me) which goes something like this: […]

Are AA games back on the rise?
In yesteryears, I used to be able to categorize a game in 3, simple groups: Indie, AAA and AA games. As the years went by and the industry matured and got more vicious and unforgiving, while we, the gamers, got more and more demanding of games, more informed and less inclined to take risks on […]
As a creative person, I love it when games tinkle my imagination and encourage me to role-play or start making stuff up as my “head-canon”.
