I have played thousands of hours of Battlefield. Somehow my first experience with the franchise was through probably its most revered game, Battlefield 2.

That is to say, I don't really understand people - not as well as I would like. This is something I've realised in the last two years, something … Continue reading On Trying to Create Quality Content
I enjoyed Attack on Titan's first season. In fact, I suspect like many of us, it was one of the first anime shows I watched. Then, last year came along the long-awaited, and long wailed after, Season 2. It wasn't for me. The things I liked in the First seemed to have vanished in the … Continue reading Attack on Titan Season 3 – It’s Better Already
