"…Star Trek's writers understood that a character that could do anything he wanted by snapping his fingers had to be handled with care or he would screw up the entire show. That's why Q episodes were generally self-contained side stories. It's Star Trek: The Next Generation, not Q: The Next Generation….


or The Fresh Q of Bel Air…


or Q and a Half Men


or Lost, but with Q…


or Keeping up with the Q-dashians


Or… To save time, here’s a list of all my high concept show reboot ideas starring Q. If you’re a TV producer and you’re watching this, I’m willing to do script treatments for any or all of these ideas.”

Seriously, go check this guy out… I’ve been watching his videos non-stop and I’m utterly enthralled.

What video games do you like? :P

Ah, now that’s a very big question…

When I was a wee tyke, my first system was the N64, then the gamecube, then a PS2…  Now I’m a proud owner of an X-Box 360, PS3, Wii (soon to have WiiU), 3DS, and PS Vita; and almost zero time to actually play videogames.

Because of my limited time, I like a game that has a strong narrative and a firm beginning, middle, and end.  This is why I typically don’t play sandbox or open world games like Animal Crossing, Grand Theft Auto, or Skyrim.  I’m sure I’d really like them, and I know they’re expertly designed pieces of work, but I simply can’t commit. 

I’m a big fan of games with good story and fun gameplay, regardless of genre.  I enjoy the staples like Zelda, Metal Gear, Kingdom Hearts, Jak, and Mario.  I can get behind a fair number of JRPGs too like the Tales Of series, Persona 3 and 4, Final Fantasy, and even the Xenosaga trilogy.  Basically, it’s only racing games and first person shooters I’ve never really gotten into, and that’s mostly just because their content hasn’t interested me that much.  Lots of action and cool mechanics are always welcome; so the latest triple A titles like Assassin’s Creed 3 and Fall of Cybertron were a lot of fun for me.

In general, I like a game with solid design that treats itself as a serious storytelling medium.  I like a game to be about something, or to tell its tale in a new and interesting way.  This is probably why I liked Catherine so much.  And, of course, a good game has to be enjoyable to play.

Right now, I’m playing through the Mass Effect 3 Omega DLC, it’s been great so far.  Then I’m planning on finally getting through Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time.
