This is our den. It may not look like much, especially in its pictured state with all of the clutter, but its a step forward for Steff and I comfortably living together. In the past, we did not have the room for my gaming setup to get its own space, which forced me to set up shop in the main living room. While I liked being within close proximity to Steff while she watched TV, it was far from ideal for both of us, especially when we wanted to zone out and do our own things. With this den, the plan is to use it as a place for all of my gaming stuff, while also accommodating some storage to hold assorted house stuff.
From the deeply personal subject matter covered on Late Registration, to the emphasis on singing on 808′s & Heartbreak, I’ve always admired Kanye West for constantly pushing the boundaries of what hip-hop music can be. Kanye’s latest opus is his most daring yet. Featuring a heavy emphasis on grungy synthesizers and unusual vocal arrangements, this is an abrasive audio assault that the genre hasn’t seen since Public Enemy was in style. But is it good?
Though I’m generally quick to throw Tekken under the bus, I feel like that disdain primarily stems from a lack of understanding. I actively avoided the series during its heyday, and my few encounters with it haven’t been overly positive. I bought Tekken 6 a few years ago, but quickly got rid of it when it became apparent that it wasn’t going to work out.
At one point, I thought I just had it in for 3D fighters in general, but then I fell in love with Dead or Alive 5. Maybe Tekken is the problem after all? After finding Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on the cheap, I gave the series another shot.

With Jett out of the country, Matt and Jason replace him with a paper shredder. Will it make better E3 predictions than its human counterparts? You’ll have to listen to find out.
Disappointment is the one word to best describe my thoughts on Dead Island: Riptide. The first game was enjoyable and showed a lot of upside, which Techland failed to capitalize on. Instead, this is a game that falls short of the bar set by its predecessor. For the full review, check it out at Splitkick!
