Mainly focused on longfrom commentary about video games and gaming culture from The Game OverThinker, bookened by the comic misadventures of The OverThinker and his wacky cast of friends and enemies.
The single-player campaign of GHOSTS features the most politically and culturally "problematic" storyline in CALL OF DUTY yet - and that's really saying something! Meanwhile, everything in The OverThinker's life is about to get a lot more complicated.
The OverThinker talks games, comedy genres and bloated self-important sanboxes.
http://gameoverthinker.blogspot.com/ The OverThinker counts down his top ten games of the now-ending 7th Generation. Meanwhile: A shootout, a jail-break and the comeback nobody saw coming... back...

The OverThinker (grudgingly) talks about game criticism's favorite made-up fancy word.
The Game OverThinker and friends discuss the winners and losers of E3 2013 - including all the stuff Microsoft now expects us to forget they tried to pull. ALSO: The "OmegaThinker" storyline wraps up, while The OverThinker's relationship with a key ally changes... perhaps permanently.
Game development is stuck in a bloated, unsustainable model - driven by short-sighted corporations and complicit consumers... but The OverThinker posits that designers need to shoulder more of the blame, too... Meanwhile: The year-long conflict against The RoboThinker comes to a close - or does it?
Disastrous product-launches, an apathetic consumer base and an industry that can't stop making gaming more expensive when the world economy is driving everyone else to streamline and reduce prices can mean only one thing to Ivan the Intern: A second Games Industry Crash is a very real possibility.
The OverThinker sat down around 3:00am Thursday morning to explain why (and apologize for) there hasn't been a new episode for March, winds up rambling about EA, SimCity and the state of the games industry. ACTUAL new episode coming soon - which I promise will NOT consist entirely of an exhausted-looking man in a robe talking to a camera.
