May is Military Appreciation Month and this coming Saturday May 16th is Armed Forces Day. That means 8-Bit Salute! I am participating this year with GameTrailers to support Operation Supply Drop.


Regardless of your politics, we all need to support the men and women who put their life on the line to protect us everyday. Operation Supply Drop supports US and NATO troops around the world by sending them video game care packages. But they can’t do it without our help!

I’ll be livestreaming at 10:00 am PT on to get our fundraising efforts off and running! Our team goal is to raise $5,000 for OSD. If you donate $5 or more you’ll be automatically entered in our video game giveaway! If you donate $25 or more, you’ll be entered to win a 3-pack of games!*


I’ve got a pile of PS4 and PS3 games including: Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Mortal Kombat X, Far Cry 4, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition, The Evil Within, The Last of Us, Borderlands The Pre-Sequel and SO MANY MORE!! You got to DONATE for your chance to win. Also do it for the troops!!

Thanks for all your support and you can learn more about Operation Supply Drop here.

*To be eligible to win the PS4 or PS3 games you must not make your donation anonymously and you must live in the contiguous United States.

The Changing Face of Games Media

In this week’s episode of “The Bonus Round” I chat with Geoff Keighley, The Jovenshire, and Shane Satterfield about the changing face of games media.

As traditional games media turns its attention to Twitch, YouTube and other emerging platforms, entertainment and editorial are becoming interchangeable. Plus, how are personalities driving content and influencing developer’s decisions? Watch our discussion:

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China Looks Pretty Great

I had the opportunity to play the new 2.5D stealth game from Ubisoft called Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. It is a breathe of fresh air and provides a challenging and different style of game play for the franchise.


It is a pack-in with the Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass or you can get it as a digital download for $9.99 on Xbox One, PS4, or PC starting April 21st.
