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...   more

(NVGR) Why I quit The Dismal Jesters

Top Ten things I like Pokemon X/Y

10)  New trainer 2D art. It's a little sterile, and doesn't fit with the rest of the game, but as stand alone art its pretty charming. 9) Some of those Mega Evolutions. They look pretty neat.  8) Pokemon Amie. It gets borin...   more



Of Inventories and Horror Games

Could you carry this for me? It's only small, it shouldn't take up much room; wait, have you checked you have the space? Do you need it for something else? Nowhere does inventory space become more of a worry than in a goo...   more



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...   more

Crafting A Good Game of 'The Thing'

So only a few days ago I happened to stumble across a video of 'The Thing', the game, on YouTube, and it brought back a lot of memories. Released around 2002, prior to getting my hands on it it had been a game I was very exci...   more

Alien(s), Creative license and Borrowed Ideas

Maybe it's because Stasis Interrupted's been released and I've been watching a few gameplay videos of it but for some reason lately I've been (again) thinking a lot about Aliens games and where they've gone wrong over the yea...   more



A Magical Dolphin Plays... The King of the Wood

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...   more

Get Yo Summer Game On

So Summer is here, at least in the UK, and frankly I have lost all willpower to sit inside ever again until it's cold and dark and generally miserable again (so at least a week from now given how the weather works here!); Wha...   more

Retrospective: Resident Evil Remake

If you're a Survival Horror fan, or indeed a gamer in general, the Resident Evil series will no doubt be familiar to you; it started off by defining an entire genre and grew into a franchise. In recent years though, at least ...   more



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...   more

Story Books and Nightmares in Rule of Rose

When it comes to all the possible ways that people can express themselves creatively, and hope to succeed to a degree to be able to commercially benefit from that creativity, games probably aren't really on the easy side of...   more



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 ...   more

B-Movie Bliss: Extermination

So I picked up a copy of Extermination a week or so ago, and was able to play through the game pretty quickly (in about four or fives hours), and that made me think about and then eventually do a pretty long write-up about Su...   more

Adorable people is why I keep trying to make things

A lot of people told me right off the bat that I shouldn't make teenage pokemon, that I was doing it wrong and that i was trying too hard or not trying hard enough or that just watching the show gave them a terminal illness. That made me wonder "Am I making the world a worse place by trying to make my idea?" This video proved to me that it was good that I tried to make my idea.   more



Talk Fast with Anthony Burch (choose your own interview)

We started a new interview series called "Talk Fast" at PAX East this year and it was fun to do. We did one with Anthony Burch of Borderlands 2 and Runner fame, but the sound didn't sound. You can play God by adding your own subtitles and/or talking to is. So do that. Do that now.   more

Horror Story: Escaping into the Darkness of Hellnight

There's a noise. A thud. Somewhere behind me...? I stop and slowly, anxiously, look behind me. ...Nothing. Nothing. The darkened passageway is empty. I'm alone. I relax my grip on the controller, letting my finger slid...   more

NF Magazine (formerly Nintendo Force) now up for subscription

Tony Ponce, a bunch of other great people, and myself are all working on a sequel magazine to Nintendo Power. The first issue cost like $18 or something wild like that. All the profits went to charity, but still...yikes. Th...   more
