Alex O’Neill’s Top 10 Games of 2016 — Alex Talks

Game of the year is always this weird period of my life. Not just because I’ve spent the last three to six weeks gathering guests, recording shows, and then editing/producing them. Not just because of the toll it takes on…

Chasing Video Game Dragons — Alex Talks

Yes, it’s been three weeks since the last Alex Talks, I know, but if you hadn’t noticed, ExtraLife happened right there in the middle of that, and it set me back some time to shoot. I used the extra time well…

The Ultimate “Experience” — Alex Talks

There is a bit of a caveat to this whole episode of Alex Talks. The unspoken agreement between me, the writer, and you, the viewer, that… I get it. I’m speaking in pretty specific terms about playing a game when it…

Alex Talks: Cynical Things and Xbox Ones

It’s a double-feature today. Initially I thought there wouldn’t be any crazy news, but it ends up Microsoft decided to throw an axe in that one. Okay first, the regularly-schedule-chat about cynicism in the games industry (attached). This one is…

Vested Interest: Alex Talks

I know this one is preachy, and I get it. I just really wanted to get my thoughts and feelings out there about the super vicious response to some of the E3 news coming from Nintendo. Maybe it’s just me, but…

Yep, time to talk about a game that isn’t Persona 4. My love for Spelunky runs deep. Deeper than many oceans, I think. Putting into words what makes the game so good is very difficult, but I gave it the ‘ol college…

Are Game Reviews Necessary: Alex Talks

It’s time to discuss whether or not we really should be reviewing games. I have always felt that the review is more for the one writing it than it is for the one reading it, which may seem selfish or…
