Listen up, game companies: I am an old man gamer. “But Vince,” you might interject, “aren’t you only 24?” “Yes, Cheryl,” I might answer, “Yes I am.” And it would be true… as long as your name is Cheryl. So what qualifies me as “old?” (We’ll discuss what qualifies me as “man” in another post… […]

I know I’m talking a lot about the Wii lately. But can you blame me. If people would wait six hours in line just to play the thing for 5 to 15 minutes, it must be interesting. Seriously… The camera is in fast motion and it still takes more than two minutes to walk from […]

So, I’ve been sick as a dog with ebola for the last several days. I apparently caught some kind of disease which feeds upon awesome. And since I am such a treasure trove of awesome, the disease feasted like a king and grew and grew until it had become less of a disease and more […]
