Looking for something?
Well, only in the sense that it’s current. Informative? Sure. Objective? Sometimes. Professional? Absolutely not.
Even less objective and informative but a lot more fun for me.
Where I get long-winded and attempt to back-up some pretty questionable sources. Hold on, should this be the description for News?
I’ll tell you a timeless critic’s secret: The less fun it is to experience the more fun it is to review.
About This Petty Indulgence You Find Yourself Accidentally Viewing
Wesley Scott is a writer and actor living on the North side of Chicago in a tiny studio apartment and spending his days playing video games, reading comic books, watching television and occasionally going to his day job when he needs a little cash. He is everything Conservatives fear when they talk about the problems with a welfare state and he is everything Liberals fear when they timidly advocate for sex positive education.
He is an authority on nothing.
Here you'll find a collection of his thoughts on the most popular entertainment medium in the world especially in regards to its literary value. Be careful, he has a lot of opinions and you're nearly guaranteed not to agree with them all. In fact you may not agree with any of them. When you don't, please tell him so in the least crazy way you know how. This being the internet he understands that a little crazy is an inevitability, of course. Violent racism and conspicuous homophobia delivered entirely in capital letters is how you know you've arrived on the internet, right?

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is one heck of a game. Hailing from the underappreciated artists at Ninja Theory – known primarily for their work on the PS3 launch title Heavenly Sword and the all but forgotten Enslaved: Odyssey to the West – it is a tale of vengeance, redemption, and (it’s right there in the title) sacrifice that Read more about A Few Reasons You Should Pick Up Hellblade Right Now[…]
Every new entertainment medium has its own strengths to offer a potential audience. Literature allows us to explore inner monologue and focus on granular details in a way that stage plays simply can’t. Theatre gives us an opportunity to draw on our own observations and infer intent between the lines of an actor’s performance. Film Read more about It’s A Matter Of Perspective[…]
I remember playing the original Destiny beta back in 2014. I had watched some trailers and promotional content and kept up with all the regular news up until that point but I was skeptical. I didn’t think Bungie could deliver all the promises they’d made about their “shared world shooter” (read MMO without the massive Read more about Destiny 2 Beta: Welcome to Year One All Over Again[…]
I’m not doing this again, Nintendo. I did it twice this year. First, when you produced and sold a handful of budget emulator boxes and retroactively branded it a limited-run collector’s item, then, when you announced the Nintendo Switch. You’re a bunch of liars, there’s no other word for it. The Switch is still suffering Read more about No. Absolutely not.[…]
Breath of the Wild is a tremendous achievement, not just in its ability to effortlessly blend its systems and design choices in ways that feel like they should have been obvious to developers for years, but in its incredible storytelling which relies more on the density and variety of Hyrule and its people than it Read more about The Beautiful Nihilism of Breath of the Wild[…]
We’ve all made offhand comments about our addictive relationship with this or that game, our inability to put it down and the fact that sometimes “one more round” can turn into “Jesus, it’s 3 am? I need to go to bed.” And while the positive feedback loops built into a well-designed game — the kind Read more about Don’t Call It Addictive[…]
Let us all take a break from playing a game so good it only comes along once in a generation (note I could be talking about any one of a number of staggeringly entertaining first quarter releases) and reflect on a game that I’ve had to place on the back burner until the hits stop Read more about Nioh Takes A Sledgehammer To Dark Souls’ Brick Wall[…]
My brother has more foresight than I do and decided to put no less than three Nintendo Switch consoles on layaway at Walmart immediately following the big Nintendo Direct presentation. “Nintendo can’t possibly pull their usual manufactured scarcity bullshit this time.” I thought to myself, and Reggie Fils-Aime put my mind at further ease when Read more about I Just Sold A Nintendo Switch for a $100 Profit Because Nintendo Wanted Me to Have It[…]
I knew you’d be fine if you landed on your butt. The history of the Resident Evil franchise (much like it’s fictional universe) is a thing plagued by the missteps of a corporation unwilling to recognize a bad idea when it presents itself. For the last decade since RE 4 was released on the GameCube Read more about Review: Resident Evil 7[…]
Always do the right thing. According to the Chicago Tribune, 4,368 people were victims of gun violence in the Chicago area during all of 2016. That same year we saw our highest murder rate in twenty years, outperforming New York city by well over 100 deaths. No small feat for a city with roughly a Read more about Review: We Are Chicago[…]
