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

(NVGR) Why I quit The Dismal Jesters

As some of you may know, I was doing a Podcast with former Dtoid writers Conrad Zimmerman and Jim Sterling called The Dismal Jesters. It was more-or-less a continuation of the version of Podtoid that Jim put together in 201...   0

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...   0

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...   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

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...   0

Hello! First, here is a audio review of Pikmin 3. It was going to be used for a video review of the game, but in the end, it wasn't. Some people like it. Is this a thing you'd like to hear more of? Also, feel free to make ...   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

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...   0

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 ...   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

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...   0

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.   0

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.   0
