One part writer, one part psychologist and one part musician (don't ask me to play an instrument though, I'm more interested in theory and composition), my professional dream is to teach college level music theory and write about video games.

Review : Sleeping Dogs

Sandbox games are not typically the most enjoyable experiences for me.  Aside from Infamous 1/2, Red Dead Redemption, Crackdown…. alright, maybe it’s just GTA that I think sucks ass.  Those early trailers got me pumped really fast, and the game … Continue reading
