I’ll be honest: I take the stars for granted. To be fair, I live in the city and it can be sort of difficult to see the stars most nights, but I can’t deny the incredible awe I feel when I get away enough from the city lights and noise and am able to stare up at the boundless evening sky.  My best friend, Brian, was always fascinated with space. He loved the stars and the idea of exploration and mystery. He was constantly following the exploits of NASA and was excited to t...

The kinds of single player cheats that make a game a little easier for the (at the time) struggling kid to be...

Ever stop and think to yourself, “Gee, I spend too much time gaming”? ...Yeah, me neither. Back in January, TrueAchievements.com debuted a tool for XBox users called MyDecadeonXBox that will let users see their stats (time logged, achievements earned, etc.) from the past 10 years. Now, since I don’t own an XBox, I’ve dodged this uncomfortable reality, but there are plenty of other things like this that certainly call attention to how much time I spend playing certai...
