Hello all!  I’m Joe Skrovanek, aka “Yvl” on the internet.  I’m an aspiring game designer, a writer, and a self-proclaimed Prince for no goddamn reason.  As such, one might guess that this is indeed a gaming blog, but I’d like this to be a bit more than “FUCK YEAH, THIS GAME.” or something long those lines for every post.  I’m more interested in finding out WHY a game is so “fuck yeah,” or why it fucking sucks.  I’ve been doing this for quite some time in miscellaneous places on the internet, but I wanted a public place to keep all my rants and deductions, and could think of numerous good reasons to do so.  Essentially, if you like The Escapist’s Extra Credits, I’m hoping you’ll be able to like this blog.  There’s a lot to learn from each individual game when it comes to design, and when done right, some games can even teach us about the human condition.  In addition to that, I will also be commenting on thoughts I have on the topic of game design, as well as a few random posts for whatever damn reason.  But mostly game design stuff, I promise.

Oh, and by the way, if you have any topics you want me to cover or controversial statements to make, by all means comment on them here, or contact me at jaos9921@gmail.com (I got that e-mail address by screwing up putting my initials in a DDR machine.)
