Inconsistent Appearance - How ugly should Horror really be?

Sex sells. It's a cliche but it's true. The more attractive your characters are the more likely you are to catch a viewer's interest long enough to draw them in, get them interested in the rest of your 'product'. This rule...   0

Dead Space 3, in a nut shell.

So I finished Dead Space 3 the other day and was going to write a blog detailing why it made me want to claw my eyes out, but I found the subject almost as boring as the game, fortunately (or not) for you I decided instead to...   0

Alien(s), Creative license and Borrowed Ideas

Struggling to move from one medium to another, TV/Movies to Games

So I haven't really wanted to write all that much of late, maybe it's because summer is pretty much here but my desire to do anything even vaguely game-related is waning somewhat. The other day though I found myself trying to...   0

Scope and Depth in the world of gaming

When it comes to games we're often led to believe that more is always better making an FPS? Well if you want people to really enjoy it you'd better have five locales to visit instead of four, or thirty levels to play instea...   0

Boss Battles - When do they ever make sense?

Bosses. Can't live with 'em, can't have closure with genuinely satisfying gameplay segments without them. ...well, atleast that's what we generally tend to believe. And who could blame us for thinking it, bosses have been ...   0
