2013: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

So 2013 draws to a close, and everyone's putting up their best games and moments and such. I figured I might as well join in. It seemed like a quaint little idea. There's a problem though. As I've said in the past, I'm terri...

 


Sui Generis Pre-Alpha Footage

It's shameless promotion time, everyone. While I had written something else for this week, it has unfortunately been put to one side for the time being. Instead, and because I don't already see it being mentioned, I wanted t...

 


Front Loaded

Note: this post has spoilers for Fire Emblem: Awakening. First impressions matter. If a game fails to hook the audience then it can wind up being banished to the pit of the forgotten (though frankly, I have a soft spot for...

 


My Top Ten Pokémon

In case you haven’t noticed yet – which is always a possibility – there’s a new Pokémon game out. This means two things for me. Firstly, it means the Alt Gr key has seen a spike in usage. Secondly, and more relevantly, it mea...

 


Avoiding the Hype Train

Hype is, without any doubt, among the scourges that I loathe the most in gaming. Whenever a game becomes the subject of ludicrous hyping, I lose all interest or desire to play it. People who fall for its honeyed words turn i...

 


Top Five Emotional Moments

In my eagerness for the next Pokemon games, I couldn’t be arsed to play anything that was worth writing about. To make amends, I’ve written up another top five, which isn’t really a top five, because I’ll be buggered if I hav...

 


Shadow Warrior 2013 Review

I’m not a terribly huge fan of first person shooters, but every so often a special exception comes along that I simply have to indulge. The new Shadow Warrior, developed by Flying Wild Hog, is one such exception, and for many...

 


Golden Sun Retrospective

Note: this post may contain spoilers for Golden Sun and Golden Sun, the Lost Age.   This week instead of anything coherent I will grant you a lecture of personal history. Something close to my heart. Among one of my favourit...

 


Top 5 Final Boss Themes

Sorry, but there’ll be no game post this week. No particular excuse this time, but I do have something else up my sleeve. Again, it’s a musical themed entry. I don’t know why since I don’t know anything about music, nor do I ...

 


Prison Architect Alpha Impressions

Prison Architect is a prison management game in development by Introversion Software. This is another game that does what it says on the tin and has you become the architect behind the prison. It's vital to note that this gam...

 


Race the Sun Impressions

Race is the Sun is the recently released high speed score attack game by developers Flippfly. On the surface Race the Sun is a very simple game, featuring minimalistic controls and rules. Thanks to its procedurally generated ...

 


Goldeneye Orchestral Cover Album

Sad to say there will be no game impressions or review from me this week. It was a case of depressed Monday, busy Tuesday, exhausted Wednesday, couldn’t be arsed Thursday, write this up desperately Friday. Hopefully next week...

 


About Shuudaone of us since 5:34 PM on 03.27.2012

Online I go by the alias of Shuuda. I am currently living North Yorkshire, England. In 2011 I graduated from the University of Hull with a first class degree in Design for Digital Media, where I studied both the creative and theoretical sides of the digital technology and the internet.

As someone who is passionate about about video games than the fantasy genre, I am highly interested in how stories can be told through interactive media. I concern myself with how the genre is portrayed within the medium and its implications. I give it both criticism and praise, but mostly criticism. Writing fiction has been my hobby for many years, and I feel that video games have influenced and inspired the content of my work in recent times.
