There’s nothing wrong with playing a Pokemon game at the age of 35. Hah, just kidding. There’s a lot of things wrong with that. Video games have stress decompression components similar to watching an episode of The Walking Dead or sipping a Macallan 25 neat in front of a fireplace. The only real problem with gaming while in a professional career is that there’s a much larger time investment required. If you do manage to break free from the shackles of life and are ready to burn a few hours on a video game, you had better spend it wisely. And no, we’ll never suggest anything embarrassing to play.Lets explore what we call, “sophisticated gaming” for the modern man.

Your First 30 Minutes in No Man’s Sky (PS4)


As an avid sci-fi nerd and space enthusiast, it’s easy to see a game like No Man’s Sky and get tremendously excited. There aren’t too many games out there that allow free exploration of the cosmos – well, not recently, since I feel as though the 80’s and 90’s had many DOS games that filled the void rather well. No Man’s Sky is one of those game-changer...

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End PS4 Single Player Story Review

I had the pleasure of playing Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End for a few weeks now, and damn – it’s one exceptional experience. As a casual player of the previous three installments of the Uncharted series, A Thief’s End ups the ante with new features that elevate the power of PS4. As my last review on the Uncharted trilogy stated: the previous upgrades look good on paper, but...

As it’s grown, GDC has also become a popular place for large game creators to show the cutting edge and...

The new Hitman game turns assassination into art


About a quarter of a million people are injured in US bathrooms every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but as I’m drowning a man in an ornate Parisian toilet I’m thinking I might have a tough time playing this off as an accident. Even trickier to explain will be how the fully grown man managed not only to trip and fall face-first into the bowl, but —”...

Howdy. I first started blogging on in 2009, with a dedicated focus on men's lifestyle and stories of inebriation. Shortly after, I was listed as a top Canadian blogger, and over the next decade, I've collaborated with hundreds of notable brands.

Then I grew up. As of late, I've graduated to writing about life experiences, well-researched opinions, and hopefully a few things you might find useful.

This is my memory vault.
