Just a few days with Black Ink, and this is what I have.

An Update

So to start off I view games as a therapeutic medium for self expression or self preservation for me. I came out to my parents the night I released the game. I didn't want to have them know from a video game, but I wanted them to know all the same. You never can fully know what will happen when you come out, if it goes good or bad; I would think in it in terms as if the scenario was a text adventure with branching endings that depended on how it happened, so I went through every possible outcome in my head since I was 12. I came up with a list a while back of fun ways to brake the ice when I do come out to my parents or friends; some of them are quite hilarious I think. I knew they wouldn't see the post since they don't read my blog at all, but these were opportunities that I was just waiting for that I might feel comfortable carrying out. I was caught off guard. My parents were watching YouTube on the ps3 in the living room and were looking for my videos (trailers an…

American Values in not so American Places: Going After Cacciato      Tim O'Brien once said in an interview “America gave me Vietnam. I want to give it back.” (349) Going After Cacciato is more than just a war novel; its a peace novel. Sure its set in the Vietnam War with its mosquitoes, paddies, mines, muddy villages on fire, and the occasional lethal confrontation with the VC in checking tunnels before blowing them, but its in this surreal journey in catching Cacciato in Paris that raises questions on war itself and American values at that time. “He would of liked winning it, true, but that wasn’t the issue.
