The end of a busy year. The end of a hiatus.

Well, it's been about a year since I've done much for this blog. I've had one busy, tumultuous year, and my time for writing critiques was made sacrifice. Since nobody really reads this blog just yet, I suppose I'm telling myself all this, but I do have some announcements. I will be having one busy, tumultuous summer! That said, I'll be getting that ODST critique done soon, as well. On top of that, I'll be watching children, writing a game script, finding a job, publishing short stories, finding a job, playing games, writing something else, and finding a job. In the mean time, I think I have something I would like to post; a fiction I wrote during this last semester regarding video games. I'll be cutting it up into sections and posting it accordingly. To everyone, have a great summer.

God of War Critique (part 6 of 6)

Ok, here's the last part of the critique. Time to tie things up and move on to the next game. I was originally going to pounce on the rest of the God of War series ('cause I want to rip them to pieces and burn the remains), but I'm going to deconstruct Halo 3: ODST instead.

God of War Critique (part 2 of 6)

Here's the second part of my analysis. In this part I touch on Kratos' trip through Athens, discussing what's significant and nitpicking all the while.

God of War Critique (Part 1 of 6)

Here's the first part of my critique of God of War. It took me about a week or so to tear through the game on a literary level, and my digging revealed some pretty sweet concepts. You might be thinking, "But I thought God of War was about living my fantasy of being an actual man?" Well I say you are wrong! In God of War (the first of the series, at least), there is a surprisingly deep and interesting story. I'll be posting the rest of my findings over the week.
