Robin Williams: A Personal, Heartfelt Thank You

Like many people, I’m saddened by the news that Robin Williams is no longer with us.  Also like many, I was touched by his life and work.  I made a little tribute video in which I talk about why I admired him so much on a personal level.  So here’s that.

Why Price Shouldn’t be a Factor in Game Review Scores

At Game Revolution, I wrote a new Most Interesting Gamer piece about prices and game reviews.  I have to include “scores” because… well, game industry and all that.  Scores are silly, but they’re what everyone focuses on.  Oh well, right?  So here it is:

I Review Games, Not Prices.
