I write about games on the internet and am ancillarily within the games industry. You can find some of my work on Wikipedia, The Daily Princetonian, and my archaic Xanga account.

Wait, why is the header image of the PS4 Jimmy Fallon demo?
Gotta post it for old times:
I liked Jack. Didn’t have the same cult of personality as CEO Kaz Hirai, but a no-nonsense E3 emcee, at least.
Levine has repeatedly stated that he wanted to make a new BioShock game for Vita (i.e. not a port).
Guess that means we’re not getting BioShock Vita, huh? :(
Shaq, I’m real happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden was the greatest Shaq Fu and Space Jam sequel of ALL TIME.
Love the subtitle.
Does it though?
When are Ben’s opinion pieces going to get a header? I mean, Brian gets “Good Game”…
Always good to hear about good game preservation.
Where’s Steve Dengler on that list?
Konami has a successful line of health spas. Sony owns a chain of banks. Stranger things have happened, particularly in the world of Japanese business conglomerates.
Prepare for trouble.
The opposite of Divekick?
Praise Helix \o/
Yes, but you’re matching threes and multiples of three to each… nevermind.
PS4 was my first day one console purchase ever, despite having played games for 20 years. Although not rational (and I’ve still not played a single game for it, besides loading up Flower for 5 minutes and downloading the FFXIV beta), I think of my purchase as an investment. I’m a PlayStation Plus subscriber through at least 2016 because of a lucky deal I got on subs a few years back so that amount is already irreparably discounted in my mind.
Now, I get to reap the benefits of all the PS+ free games between launch and when I would have purchased a PS4 at the price I normally would have waited for it to drop to. This is probably around $250 and I’d have had to wait at least 2 years for a price that low. In those two years, I estimate that I’d be accruing at least $150 worth of “free” (yes I know how PS+ ownership works) games which will be available whenever I feel like turning my PS4 on instead of just playing FFXIV every day. So maybe I’m rational?
Important question: Is Threes a “match-3” game?
Square Enix’s account system is notoriously unintuitive (though Mogstation is a big step in the right direction) and super paranoid about changing IPs and security whatnot. I would bet they salt and hash everything extremely thoroughly.
That said, prepaid cards are available on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com so that shouldn’t be an issue…
HIB 11 is up there with HIB V for best bundles ever now.
