The critic returns

The critic returns

I've been gone in spirit for a while, and I don't know that too many of you missed me. :-)

Regardless, I've decided to return and once again share with you my thoughts on the games I'm playing and news about what's coming.

My life has changed considerably since I last wrote regularly. For one, I'm now married — to a woman who claims she's not a gamer yet lives and breathes mobile games "Clash of Clans," "Boom Beach," "Fallout Shelter" and the like.

Married life puts a little bit of a crimp on my budget, so I don't have all the toys I'd like. So, no, no Oculus Rift or HTC Vive in my immediate future, though I do have a friend who's promised to let me fool around with his Rift.

And I'm doubtful I'll get to E3 in Los Angeles this June. I'm in negotiations.

My official return — in print and online — will be this Sunday, with a column on "Dark Souls III."

Soon after that, it'll be "Uncharted 4," Samsung's Gear VR, "Doom" and "Letter Quest Remastered." Beyond that, who knows?

Expect this to be a work in progress, as I've got a few kinks to work out, including getting videos to embed properly in my blog entries.

If there's anything in particular you'd like to see, please shoot me a line at, or "tweet" at me (@Playing_Critic) or message my Playing Critic page on Facebook.
