Denuvo is a perfect example of why I'm always ranting about DRM. (Rant inside!)

I've been playing a lot of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain recently. I love the Metal Gear series, and I couldn't wait to pick this new title up on the PC, now that I've gone almost completely PC this generation. I had ...   0

Window 10 Impressions: HOLY F*** IT'S DRM-FREE?!

I've been a Windows user for as long as I can remember, probably because I've been playing games for as long as I can remember. I moved from DOS to Windows 95 when it was pretty new, and my family just kept upgrading our sys...   0

2015: The Year of Linux?

I love Linux. In fact, if I could reliably get my Windows games to run on them, I'd drop Windows like a bad habit. It's faster, it has more user support, nearly every program for it is free, and there are about a thousa...   0

My parents, the artists

When I was young, I played with a TON of action figures. Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles, Batman, Spider-Man, Thundercats... I could make this entire blog just a big list of the action figures I liked. There was a disconcerting ...   0

Dark Souls II for PS4, XOne and PC DirectX 11 Announced [REPOST: IT SUCKS NOW]

Wow, it looks like FROM is REALLY screwing people with this upgrade. I guess the servers will be split for the console versions, too, but on the PC, they're essentially charging for an engine upgrade. What the hell...   0

Super Smash Bros. Wii U: One Day In

I've been a huge fan of Super Smash Bros. since the very beginning. I took a chance and picked up the original on the N64 the day it came out, and I've been in love with the series ever since. When the new games were ann...   0

The Evil Within: Quick PC Thoughts

I was able to get The Evil Within at launch for a pretty good price, so I decided to jump on it. I've only played a little bit of the game, but I wanted to say a few things about the PC version. First, unfortunately, the...   0

Modding the DualShock 4

I love the DualShock 4. Seriously, it's my favorite controller that I've ever used, and I've used pretty much anything you could name to me, plus a countless number of third-party offerings. In my 26 years of gaming, I've nev...   0

PSA: FlingSmash with Wii Remote Plus $14.97 at Kmart

I guess the guys at Kmart don't know that the Wii Remote is compatible with the Wii U, because they're currently getting rid of all their copies of FlingSmash -- which comes with a black Wii Remote Plus -- for the paltry pr...   0

Every Steam developer/publisher needs to live up to Monaco

I bought Monaco: What's Yours is Mine during a recent Humble Store sale. I haven't even gotten the chance to play more than two levels of it yet, but I like what I've seen so far. However, I'm not here to review the game. I...   0

A short tribute to The Super Mario Bros. Super Show

In 2009, the gaming world lost Captain Lou Albano, the wrestler-turned-actor who played Mario in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show. It was really sad for me in particular, because I had met Albano a few times when I lived in...   0

"Games Organized Neatly" - a visual art series

In theory, a videogame is really just a computer program made up of electronic signals, creating light that moves in different patterns on a television screen.  BUT. With that said, I've always been a big fan of both box art...   0

Microsoft's DRM reversal is the biggest victory for consumers in recent memory.

I've said -- more than once -- that one of the main differences between PC gamers and console gamers is that console gamers won't take the same restrictive shit that PC gamers seem to so often be just fine with. Well, if to...   0

My Xbox One Thoughts

It's called the Xbox One. ONE, not Three. It looks like a VCR that will blind you if you look at it too long. It forces you to pay for a Kinect, something nobody wanted in the first place. It requires an Internet connectio...   0

My Excitement for the Ouya is Through the Roof
