Gaming Blog For the Game Geeks

Can a video game be literature? Can a blog of "Game Journalism" done by two undergrads reach a large audience?

My son Sam and his buddy Chris Plante have created a huge hit with their new blog Hardcasual. With entries as diverse as a 3-part interview with Leigh Alexander and an appreciation of Escape Velocity, the blog has been picked up by links in Hungary and by Newsweek writers. Believe it or not, Sam managed to pen something controversial and ignite a controversy. I would claim that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, but Sam was blogging before I was, so my own blogging is actually the metaphorical apple.

If you're into the gaming thing, you might enjoy the blog.
