    Watching: GameCenter CX

    I’ve been sad, lately. A desire to get better at ‘enjoying things just to enjoy things’ has lead me back to Shinya Arino, and GameCenter CX.

    Making a case for Death Stranding

    “You either like it, or you don’t”; I’m tired of hearing this explanation of Death Stranding’s appeal, so I decided to write about why I love it.

    All-time faves: Harold Sakuichi’s BECK

    One of my favorite manga, Haikyuu!!, is ending soon. The chapter that was published this week let us know that the next would be the “final chapter”, which gives me a lot of emotions. While I’m waiting for that (so I can write something properly) I thought I’d write about another series that’s similarly influenced […]

    Me at 31: more reflections

    Last year I wrote something on my birthday for turning 30, and today I turn 31. Looking back at that post, I’m happy that I haven’t made any huge changes, but I figured I should at least update how things have been going.

    Creator-focused Crypto: dipping my toes into Brave

    When I made the decision to go into journalism as a career, it was motivated by me enjoying writing, and wanting to seek a way to make a living from it. By the time that I entered journalism school, people still hadn’t figured out a good way of getting decent money from the things they […]

    My Gaming in May

    I’ve been finding that I’ve been oddly focused with my gaming time lately, and have knocked a few things off my backlog. This is pretty uncharacteristic for me, because I feel like I’m pretty resistant to just closing the door on things; I’ll usually pick up new RPGs impulsively, and with each one of them […]

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Quarantine QoL

    I always find it fascinating when the release of something coincides with a general cultural need. With the COVID-19 quarantine still going on, it was pretty great to see Animal Crossing: New Horizons come out right at a time when anxiety is high and people need something to do.

  • Reading: Giant Killing

    Reading: Giant Killing

    I’ve been trying to make more of a habit of reading before I go to bed, both to get myself away from the PC itself and the social media that I find myself scrolling through. There’s something particularly insidious about the habit of diving deep into reddit, Twitter or Wikis when you’re not fully engaged; […]

  • I did my first esports lecture!

    I did my first esports lecture!

    I’ve done my fair share of speaking about esports, but never in a class setting before. When I found out that my alma matter had an esports class (not just like, one week of study), I jumped at the chance to email the prof and see if they could put my experience to use. Literally, […]
