Say what you will about casual games and party games. God knows I have. The fact is, now more than ever, games and technology have the means to bring people together, who wouldn't normally have a reason to cross paths.
Just watched Morgan's latest episode, which I quite like having on first thing in the morning as I go through morning feeds in my Google Reader. If you hang on to the very end she plugs Destructoid and Leigh's Bioshock Pac-Ma...
My first jump into the Xbox LIVE Call of Duty community left me a bit put off. After finally being able to sit down to a few hours of the multiplayer beta yesterday, I was a bit surprised by meatheads I seemed to be surrounde...
The recent influx of quality games from unsuspecting places has started me thinking about the games the didn't quite live up to the hype. Even still, the games that not only didn't live up to the hype but the hype was so stro...
Over the years, I've developed into a very methodical gamer when it comes to any game that has aspects of exploration. Games take me much longer than they should, but I get my money's worth. I try to get to know the boundarie...
I was going to start with some bad pun about this post drowning in a sea of Bioshock posts, but I'd prefer to start by referencing a bad pun that only partially exists.
Last week, I posted on how a demo of a certain, Big Dad...
Clive Barker's Jericho, Turning Point Fall of Liberty, Overlord, Rise of the Argonauts, DiRT... Maybe I'm just reacting because they are making games closer to genres I'm interested in or that Jim Sterling touched on this ear...
As I count my nickels and dimes and glance at possible trade-worthy games in my classic collection, I'm clueless as to how I'm going to afford, let alone play, the games I want that are coming out in the next few months.
First Halo, now Madden. Where has my elitism gone? Next thing you know I'll be buying GTA 4 and trying to retroactively join a fraternity.
I did it. I "preordered" Madden '08 for the 360. My first Madden game since '94 on th...
MrRed made me think about my childhood. And you know what, Mom? I'm bitter.
You see you made up this rule that I could only have one game system at a time. Which means I had to sell ALL of my NES games, system, and accessori...
So there's this game called Rock Band, you may have heard of it, whose hype is consuming me. After scoffing at Guitar Hero 2 less than a year ago. Here I am, still drowning in my own saliva secretions from E3 videos and the a...
As UPS decides to take the full 5 days in their 3-5 day estimate of the delivery of my newly revived Xbox 360, I can't help be surprised at how smooth the process has gone to bring it back from the red ring of death. Although...
Seriously though, we have to be the greatest gaming generation. Growing up with it, watching it scare the shit out of the public so many times. And finally over take all forms of other entertainment. My thirst for games and its culture never fades, only my time to consume it.
Mainly I pay attention to anything dealing with the growth of the gaming industry. It's about respect as an art and entertainment form at this point. I think I have a "violence in gaming" debate at least once every other day at this point. When I'm not on a soapbox, I'm pretty much staring at the next shiny and ridiculous object that I can find, pointing and laughing at it, looking around to see if anyone else sees what I see.
Right now, Rock Band is about the only game I play consistently. That and random XBLA games.
