Review: Mind Meld: Micro Collaboration Between E Learning Designers And Instructor Experts

Mind Meld: Micro Collaboration Between E Learning Designers And Instructor Experts by Jon D. AlecksonMy rating: 2 of 5 stars A bit conflicted about this book. On the one hand there are some elements of sage advice in here, but the book has a few failings for my liking:1. There is barely any cited evidence here (the references list is just 2 pages), and most 'evidence' seems to rely on anecdotes

Review: The Jackal's Trick

The Jackal's Trick by John Jackson MillerMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Hey! The unsung had been played all along by external forces! Well, I guess this is what you get when a society discommendates several generations of their citizens for whatever reason. Also, Kahless is alive because...he's Kahless ;-) A fun read. Looking forward to the third part. View all my reviews

Operation Racoon City | Done

Another one of my quick-runs through xbox 360 games to get a sense of the story and the game.  This one is Capcom's Operation Racoon City, which is a game that falls into the Resident Evil franchise.I think this game did multiplayer co-op much better than Crackdown 2. I played the campaign part of this game back in January of this year. From what I can see you can only play this game online (maybe

Legend of Korra | Done

Another really quick review of an xbox 360 game that isn't backwards compatible to the xbox one that I did a quick run through in December of 2018.  This time the game is the Legend of Korra on the xbox 360 (I am surprised that it's not backward compatible!)I know that this is based on a cartoon, which I haven't watched.  But it is a brawler so it looked like fun.  The game resorts

Crackdown 2 | Done

Back in December of 2018, another game that I tried to play through on my 360 before I packed it away was Crackdown 2 (funny thing is that after I completed it it became backward compatible...)  So here is a brief review of Crackdown 2 on the xbox 360:As you can see from my gamerscore, I didn't really go after all of the achievements. Part of the reason is that the achievements were (like in

Dark for the 360 | Attempted

Back in November of 2018 I tried out a game called "Dark" on my xbox 360. I had been going on a binge of games that are not backwards compatible to the xbox one, so I thought I'd give this a try.The reviews for this game were bad...quite bad! (Metacritic score of 38%).  But the price was right (next to free...) and the concept seemed like an interesting concept: The game follows the story

Review: Hell's Heart

Hell's Heart by John Jackson MillerMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This book had me reacting out loud while I was listening to it. It was a rather interesting story of succession in the house of Krug (from Star Trek IV), and a rather interesting tale of discommendated, and what happens when the children of those who are no longer considered part of the community refuse to accept a system that is

Review: Defiance:The Essential Guide

Defiance:The Essential Guide by SyfyMy rating: 4 of 5 stars I was reminded of this ebook while rewatching Defiance this summer. This was a "getting to know the world of Defiance" sort of book.  I think it mostly focused on the TV show, even though Defiance was originally envisioned as a transmedia type of franchise (with the eponymous MMO still running/limping along to this day). Too

Review: Star Trek vs. Transformers

Star Trek vs. Transformers by John BarberMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Another cross-over, this one a bit more recent I think compared the DC Legion of Superheroes one I read.  An interesting Star Trek: The Animated Series cross-over with Transformers. A bit campy for my tastes, but if you view it from an animated series perspective it ain't half bad. I guess Transformers is now in the official
