Videogame Columns over at The Current

November 11, 2010 Comments off

As many of you know, I am the Opinions Editor over at The Current, the University of Missouri-St.Louis’ student-run weekly newspaper.

That means I write weekly columns. Sometimes they’re political, sometimes they’re personal, other times they’re controversial.

Sometimes, though, I get to write about videogames.

There are two columns up over at The Current:

One Man’s Dream Inspires Others (A tale of Minecraft and Notch’s success)

Supreme Court vs. Videogames (Opinion on the Schwarzenegger vs. EMA supreme court battle)

Enjoy, and let me know what you think about them in the comments!
