Review Policy

Anything recommended on this site is based on my own opinion and real deal personal expereince. I do my best to note the provenance and relationships involved, but generally I prefer to do my own research and make my own purchases.

My goal is to keep this site as third-party ad free and honest as I can, while still managing to keep the lights on. Never will I ever feature something I don’t fully and truely believe is great. If you do see an ad, there’s a pretty huge chance that it’s for one of my own projects or that of one of my friends or collegues who I’m supporting – as long as I think it’d benefit you.

Often I’ll use referral links to point you in the direction of the stuff I think is awesome or useful or really freaking cool.

You’ll know it’s a referral link if you see [☕ referral link]  or [☕ ref] next to a link or bit of

I’ll also be including the previous paragraph on all posts or show notes that accompany a video or podcast. If you don’t see it, let me know so I can correct it ASAP- I don’t want anyone to get confused!

Relationship Disclaimer


In a former life, I made big AAA video games with a lot of big name companies. That experience is a huge part of my life still & is maybe even related to the reason you’re here. This means I have been employed, educated, consulted, interviewed, & befriended by various industry schools, educators, related companies, publishers, entertainment entities, game developers, & others in the gaming industry. I’m also married to another professional game developer. The opinions on this site are mine as covered under the TERMS OF SERVICE and should not be taken as to reflect or belong to any of these other entities at any time.

Sometimes I say nice things about my friends. Sometimes I say nice things about games I enjoy. Sometimes I don’t feel like burning bridges, and so reserve the right to say nothing at all. Sometimes life is complicated and messy and my armor’s too thin that day and I’ve got too much on my plate to take on yet another battle. Sometimes I’m juggling over a dozen different NDAs. Sometimes I might even change my mind. (*gasp!*) Sometimes I am just a complex, falliable human being. This is my site, there are a ton of others out there if you expect something else than what’s on offer. But with that all said:

I do hereby pledge to you that I will never say anything contrary to my true feelings, experience, or knowledge despite any previous relationships.

In the end you’ll always get my best efforts (for better or worse!), but it’s your responsibility to evaluate your decisions based on your own specific circumstances.
