Speed Racer: The Video Game. A love story.

I love the Speed Racer movie. I'm well aware of it's many, many flaws. But when I see stuff like that, my inner child just squeals in joy. The bright colors. The silly cars. The beautiful CG. The sliding heads. The hammy...

Making scores personal

I'm going to take what is a tired and well-trodden topic and hopefully present some kind of new spin on it. This idea may be suggested elsewhere, but I had the thought while I was showering (where I do my best thinking) and t...

Tropes vs. Women vs. Gamers vs. Everybody Part Two

(This will probably be a retread of some ideas discussed in my earlier blog, but focusing on one particular point I wanted to make. Apologies.) Required (or suggested) reading: http://upsettingshorts.tumblr.com/post/47124...

Who I Am and Why I'm Here

Oh hey there! Pull up a chair. So I'm starting up this blog basically just like many others, to write about and openly discuss gaming as it currently is and shall be in the future. Hopefully this quick little intro post wi...

Tropes vs. Women vs. Gamers vs. Everybody vs. CHRIST STOP IT.

Okay, so, that video's out. You know the one--where we continue to attack the monster of gender equality in games from the entirely wrong angle? Anita Sarkeesian's video is informative and well presented, but as is typical of...

Games Coming to Both PS4 and PS3? Good? Bad?

Welp, Sony did their press conference thing. And as I predicted in my previous blog, I wasn’t super impressed. The games looked pretty, but they were hardly awe-inspiring like when we first saw the PS3. What gameplay that was...

Sony's New Console Won't Impress Me...Guaranteed.

Let me begin this blog by saying, yes, I am a cynical bastard at the worst of times, and at best, I am immensely difficult to impress. And let me follow that up by saying that I really wish that wasn't the case. I wish I coul...

Let's talk about Reboots. And yes, let's use DMC.

The new Devil May Cry game has been released to the tears of thousands of fanboys (myself included) and to the praise of many game critics (including our beloved Jim Sterling). Much has been said about the game, how it destro...

Game devs aren't your bitch.

Okay, so, here's how I look at things, and this is going to be blunt, so allow me to preface all this by saying I have nothing against anyone in particular and just generally disagree with the mentality I'm about to present: ...

Take away my Freedom! Or, why I think Linear Gameplay is Superior

Wow, I haven't updated this blog in a long time. Like, over a year. Maybe two. I point the blame squarely at college and real life sucking up all of my non-video game time, and even having the gall to cut into said video game...

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Review!

((Note: Yes, I know I haven't been updating lately. Summer job has been keeping me busy, preventing me from playing as many games as I want. But, I managed to finish this one! :D)) My history with the Shin Megami Tensei seri...

BlazBlue: First Impressions

So, a bit of personal backstory. I never had 2D fighters as a kid. My parents were the "Fighting is violent and wrong and you can't see it" Type, so fighting games were completely out of the question. I'm lucky to have been a...

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin Review

You may wonder why, with games like Infamous and Punch-Out, I would be playing a DS game, an older DS game, in a series like Castlevania. With such high-profile, incredibly exciting titles on the more advanced systems, why wo...

E3-Thoughts

So, I know that there will probably be a -ton- of posts like this one on the site from now until the end of E3, and I will probably get swept aside with all the rest, but even still, I figure it's worth a shot, see if anyone...

Prince of Persia (The New One) Review

My first experience with the Prince of Persia series was, like many people, The Sands of Time. I got it for my gamecube somewhat later in the lifecycle, I think Warrior Within was on it's way, but I still played it. And fell...

Eternal Sonata Review!

It can be easy to view today's games as all rather dark and dirty, consisting of mainly grays...and more grays. So, it's quite refreshing to sit down and pick up a game that isn't afraid to show bright colors, but at the same...

Game Difficulty? What makes the "Sweet Spot?"

Some people may argue that games nowadays are too easy, and I would agree with them. The "old-skool" difficulty of the NES days is simply gone now. The glory days of having 3 lives to complete a level has been replaced with r...

Coming Back from College

Well, this is my FIRST POST! *throws a small party* Yeah, basically, I just finished my freshmen year at college, but I didn't have any of the new game consoles up here. I had a gamecube, but I didn't really have much time t...
