Parents, be smart about the games your children play and who they’re playing with!

Parents, be smart about the games your children play and who they’re playing with!

Being a gamer, I spend a bit of time in places like GameStop and the video game sections of Target and Best Buy. And while there, especially around Christmas, I was noticing a disturbing trend: parents not paying attention to the games they were buying for their children.

Retail Therapy: GameStop

Retail Therapy: GameStop

I want to say that at some point in my life I’ve had pretty much every video game system, save a few that were just WAY beyond my pay scale (like the Neo Geo. MAN, that thing was expensive when it launched in the US!) or weren’t worth actually owning. And if I didn’t haveContinue Reading

Unless you’ve been away from any type of media over the last couple of weeks, you’re aware that on November 15th Sony launched its next-generation console, the PS4. Considering over a 24 hour time span they’ve sold over a million units, I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s looking like a bigContinue Reading

Ready for the “Next Level” of Gaming?

If you’re wondering why all of a sudden your geeky pre-teen or teenager is being extra nice or extra responsible, I may have an answer for you … Last week the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, kicked off in Los Angeles, California. What is E3? Think of it as a video game trade show. It’sContinue Reading
