With Valve having seemingly given up game development, fans of their IP's have been wondering what their next game will be. Instead of waiting, Prism Studios decided to craft an unofficial prequel to Portal 2 in the mean tim...

Hadouken To Win (Short Blog)

Fighting games are a curious beast in the modern era. Since the internet is prevalent on every gaming platform, you'd think developers would be adding characters left and right into their titles. We haven't really seen ...

REFUND ME!

Valve recently decided to implement a refund policy on Steam. For a year or so, this was the only thing EA had a leg up on Valve. Their platform, Origin, allowed a refund for any reason within 48 hours. Even the website...

Frame of Reference

So Hatred is out and nobody really seems to care. This game sparked a huge controversy over it's content and now the game is old news. Having seen some footage of the final build, even I am left wondering what the big d...

Nostalgia Goggles

Nostalgia can be a cruel beast. We often have fond memories of games, movies or places from childhood that just do not hold up in the present. This doesn't mean that those memories are worthless, just that our perceptio...

Forsaken Age

I don't know quite how to feel about Broken Age. I want to scream and yell and claim it is a terrible experience, but I don't overtly hate the game. I had a partial bit of responsibility for bringing it to life (funding...

Next-Gen is Finally Here!

Next-generation gaming has official begun! With the launch of Mortal Kombat X, we finally have a game that was completely impossible to run on Xbox 360 and PS..... Wow; I couldn't even finish that sentence before notici...

The Linearity of Time

Game developers have made great strides in providing gamers with multiple choices for a game's story. This has resulted in many critics and players labeling games as "non-linear" or "open-world." They all allow you to t...

The Convention that Changed it All

Absence makes the heart grow fonder; while the origin of this quote is unknown, the impact of those words can be profound. Removing yourself from your favorite place can be quite difficult. Sometimes the change is neede...

GTA V: "Why Go On?"

Grand Theft Auto was a series that blew my mind back in middle school. It was so edgy and violent. It felt almost wrong to be fantasizing about the game, but I wanted to pull back the curtains and look inside at the scandal...

The Game That Broke Me

The dream of most writers posting blogs on gaming websites is to one day review games for money. We all make claims like, “It doesn’t matter if the game is bad. I CAN DO IT!” A lot of us even consider ourselves experts in t...

There's V in my COD?!

When Call of Duty made the jump to the modern era, realism wasn’t on the agenda. I mean, the game was certainly fashioned after combat with guns in a semi-realistic manner, but the scenarios and settings were clearly fantas...

Dragon's Crown is Sexist?

Is Dragon’s Crown really that controversial of a game? What, exactly, is wrong with the art style? Sitting here and listening to TotalBiscuit’s podcast, I’m stunned. I’ve seen coverage of the game on Destructoid, but I didn...

My Reaction to Phil Fish's Over-reaction

On Twitter today, Phil Fish of Polytron has confirmed that Fez 2 will be canceled. This comes right off the heels of a debate that Fish was having with Marcus Beer from GameTrailers "Annoyed Gamer" segment. A series of hig...

Interviews from SGC

I was a bit busy at SGC this weekend. Not intent to sit on my ass and enjoy everything, I got some interviews about upcoming games! These were posted to a site I'm contributing to, Gamer's Association. Since they deal with u...

Sex: Sorry, no...

Sexy and video games are just two things that seem to fail together. I cannot claim that I haven’t been aroused by a digital temptress, but more often than not, sexy in gaming just falls flat. For the worst possible example...

Briskly Walking "The Line!"

So, that “Spec Ops: The Line” was quite the game, right?........Right?.......Ugh, sometimes I hate being me. Just the other day, I finished my journey through Dubai in what seems to be record time; 5 hours. I played on the...

The New Playstation Store: Not So Hot

Dear Sony, I'm sorry, but the new store is absolutely terrible. I don't know if you're trying to capture the "Attention Deficit" crowd, but it feels that way. It's like you tamped the old store down into a cannon and shot ...

KingSigy's Quest - Professor Layton Series

Inspired by Magnalon and his constant destruction of entire game series, I’ve decided to finally jump in the fray and represent a series that is often overlooked: Professor Layton. You probably wouldn’t expect someone like...

Apprently the Dreamcast sucks...(Short Blog)

I hate video game reviews. I truly do. With this week’s release of Jet Set Radio HD, I’m just reminded of how deep my hatred for game reviewing has become. How can a website rightfully justify giving a classic a 4.5 when th...

Confronting My Bias

There are two franchises I will almost never speak about on this blog: The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros. The reason for that is simple: BIAS! Those are my two favorite franchises and I personally enjoy each game in ...

I'm Part of the Problem

Every now and then, a treasured developer will produce a game so dissimilar to their previous work that fans will begin to rage. They’ll lament the good old days and chat about how said developer has lost their way. What ha...

Girlfriend Mode My Ass!

Developers and stupid comments seem to be going hand in hand these days. First we get Crystal Dynamics shooting themselves in the feet and now we have Gearbox making asshats of themselves. It’s insane to think how grown adu...

The Faces of Change

Ever wanted to see my face? Well, now you can! I’m not quite sure why gamers are so afraid of change. I recently watched GameTrailers “Top 10 Fallen Angels” segment and their comments about Splinter Cell confused me. While...

Cinematic Narrative

As gaming evolves and budgets become larger, there seems to be a trend going on: lavish cutscenes. You’d be hard pressed to find a modern, mainstream, triple A title that doesn’t feature cutscenes in some significant way. B...

The Impact of an Ending

Video games are a strange medium. Gameplay is paramount and story usually takes a backseat to fun. Sometimes, though, endings can bolster an otherwise lackluster experience into something worth venturing through. That is t...

That Old Familiar Feeling

Recently, I’ve been reliving my past gaming habits in the likes of “Unreal Tournament” and “Quake 2.” Both titles have reminded what I used to love so much about shooters; pure skill. If you can’t point and shoot with quick...

Objectifying Pig

The end of summer is nearing and one thing has dawned on me; I might actually miss some of the co-workers that are leaving. What else dawns on me, though, is how much of an objectifying pig I am. You see, I’m truly saddene...

GAMES! PRECIOUS GAMES! (Short Blog)

Sony recently started their relaunch of “Playstation Plus” by offering a deal completely unheard of this generation; FREE GAMES! For $50 a year, you get 12 free games a month and can keep them as long as your Plus subscript...

Talking Bout Your Sex Appeal!

Tomorrow sees the release of Suda51’s newest title, “Lollipop Chainsaw.” I know very little about the actual gameplay and there doesn’t seem to be any extensively in-depth previews on the internet for me to read. All I real...
