Let us Muse! : Games as Mainstream Entertainment By Nacho I’m not old, by any means. I’m 24 and I’m nowhere near the phase in my life where sitting on a park bench, between feeding the ducks and drooling all over myself, I go into fits, lecturing the young folk about how things were better in the old days.

So this past week all I’ve been doing is watching Dexter Season 1.  I know i'm jumping on the band wagon a little late, but I don't care. :P Moving on, “Dexter” is about a guy (Dexter) who needs to kill because of some psychological disorder. To make a long story short he was trained by his dad (a cop) to only kill bad people, and to do it without leaving any evidence.   The show is really awesome and I ... Read More
