How to Lose at Video Games Without Really Trying

Posted 13th December 2010 at 04:58 AM by daranthered (Hello! I am Error.)

By most standards I'm a pretty good loser. As a tactical thinker a generally treat a loss as feedback that helps to refine my strategy. Though I'm not one of those people who picks up a game and runs straight through it, I usually take comfort in the fact that after a few runs through, I'm pretty hard to beat.

Sometimes I am reminded that my attitude is by no means the prevalent view among gamers, especially amongst the younger generation. it seems like you can't play an MMO, or...

Talera vs Working out of town

Posted 24th November 2010 at 02:17 PM by Talera
