Mankind’s greatest mistake will be its inability to control the technology it has created.
Summers can be scorching in Tennessee. It’s not necessarily the heat that burns, but the humidity that suffocates. At times it’s like inhaling water, and there’s no relief outside hiding from it. But when you’re a kid faced with what feels like an eternity of no school… you suffer through it all in the name of fun.
I’ve always been a kid with a massive imagination. Living with my head in the clouds somehow kept me grounded. It somehow helped me sort through the inner dramas of a child. Playing out my life as a heroine, a warrior, a girl obtaining triumph, all of it held precious meaning. Video games only enhanced this. They gave me control of heroes, helped me forge stories, and allowed me to overcome challenges.
Note: Contains spoilers for the series finale of Legend of Korra.
Legend of Korra is officially over and all of us have been continuously tearbending since watching the finale. It was a mistreated show that deserved a lot more support from Nickelodeon, but it managed to demonstrate the passion and creativity the creators had for it, and it definitely showed as the series came to a close. The show that sparked from The Last Airbender series may have originally been constructed as a children’s show, but it contained so much depth that it was difficult to only consider it for kids.

I love eSports, particularly Call of Duty eSports. Call of Duty 4 ignited my love for the series, and despite the mixed opinions of each game released, it continues to be a wonderful source of entertainment. I never once imagined writing inside of the eSports industry. Writing was a self-motivated endeavor for me, and I’ve written for years with the intent of working my way into the video game industry. So of course when I first started writing specifically for Call of Duty eSports, I fell in love.
I fell out of love very quickly. Read the rest of this page »
Note: This article contains some pretty huge spoilers for Dragon Age: Inquisition and Dragon Age: Origins.
My love for the Dragon Age series is undoubtedly fueled by the characters. Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 both introduced and fleshed out amazing, complex characters that transcended the usual supporting role in RPGs. Because of this, it’s really interesting to me to follow them through their growth. Read the rest of this page »
What is the definition of art? Do video games have the power to develop the same stimulation most traditional forms of art can mentally provoke? In Shadylikeatree’s video, he discusses art and the responsibility to defend the artistic integrity of video games, particularly titles surrounded by controversy. Read the rest of this page »
I know absolutely nothing about perfume outside of the fact that it’s supposed to make you smell good. When I decided that I wanted to review this product, I tried to research other perfume reviews to find some direction… and of course it was a total fail. I’m not a perfume expert by any means, but Fresh N’ Geeky deserves some recognition from the video game community.
Because the entire collection is inspired by characters from different video games and television shows. Read the rest of this page »
I’ve been a writer inside of the video game community for about four years now. I started my own site that originally contained poetry before I realized I could combine my two main loves: writing and video games. My experience isn’t as extensive as some who may have already developed careers, but I’ve also taken a different path than some. There has been a lot of failure, but there has been an immeasurable amount of success… and now I’m starting to get repetitive questions from people wanting to do what I do. My advice may not work for you! If you truly want to write in this community then you’ll have to learn how to experiment and discover exactly what works for you.
But for those who still send in these two questions, here are my answers: Read the rest of this page »
Rumors have been circulating the Call of Duty community for a little while now concerning the players of Evil Geniuses and their contracts. As the writer who prepared the articles announcing their transfer to OpTic Gaming/Nation, I’ve known about what was happening (with OpTic) for a while. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes that not many people understand, me included, but there was finally some clarification. Read the rest of this page »
