Is Gaming Compatible with my Faith?

Buddy JesusI am a Christian.

It took me a long time to say that on this blog. Not because I’m ashamed of the fact, nor that I’m unsure of it, but because I was worried about being perceived as something I’m not. Afraid of being improperly categorized due to someone’s preconceived notions of what that label means.  And let’s not pretend that it doesn’t happen. Simply by saying the word “Christian” I’ve placed a picture in your mind of someone, or an idea of someone, based on your past experiences or education. Same as if I were to say “Cowboy” or “Blue Collar” or “Politician”. Those words carry with them pictures, attitudes, and the temptation to reach down into the toolbox, pull out the broad brush, and paint an entire landscape of individuals with the same color. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s how the human brain makes sense of the world. The problem is, even within our own specific category, we’re not all the same, are we?

Streaming Makes Me Twitchy

StreamHave I mentioned how much I like following Jessica (Liore) Cook on Twitter? My former MMORPG.com’s Game On co-host is not incredibly wordy, but when she does tweet, I give it my full attention. Her posts are simultaneously witty and insightful, and always uplifting. I should probably take tweet lessons from her, honestly. That’s a thing, right? I think it’s called social media branding.

Beyond Bossfights 21 – Does Gaming Affect Your Real Life?

In this episode, Draculetta joins me to talk about how video gaming has impacted our lives, how our lives impact the way we game, and the good and bad effects gaming can have on individuals. We also discuss obscure topics such as Judas Priest and the unfortunate heavy metal smear campaigns of the 1980’s. Sound weird? It is, a little.

Prioritizing Gaming

PrioritiesOn the most recent edition of the Couch Podtatoes podcast, Izlain and Eri discussed several questions that have been floating around the blogosphere recently. Two of them that were chosen for discussion interested me quite a bit, and I feel that they’re somewhat related. One question was: What is your longest continuous gaming session. The other, do you have any regrets related to gaming.
