Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut DLC, my $0.02 *spoilers*

The original ending to Mass Effect 3 was pretty bad, to put it bluntly. The trilogy emphasized player choice, bringing disparate peoples together as one for a greater good, and the bonds of friendship--until the final 30 minu...   more

The "two hour" experience (short blog)

For a game to be successful it must respect the playerís time. As I get older Iím finding it increasingly difficult to invest my time in video games. Iím not a busy man, no, in fact I sometimes have sufficient time to game....   more



What Is Gameplay?

What is gameplay? Debates about this very word have caused controversy in the last couple of years in the gaming community. More often than not the attacks have been aimed at games that proclaim themselves as being ďartistic....   more



Fuite

I slide, glide, and glitch into your life. Why do you love me, if Iím so imperfect? My identity is typical Ė shield, sword, hammer, spells. I talk to you, repeating sameness until you leave. The world I give you is beautiful...   more

Diary of a Breton: journey to Solitude (part 2)

Iím starting to believe Iím the only one who has changed. Itís simple, but an unpleasant feeling. But I must finally realize that I am subject to these sudden transformations. Nothing new has happened. I sit here in Winterh...   more

Diary of a Breton: journey to Solitude (part 1)

Awake. I started my journey in the forest, not far from some nameless town. Itís nameless because I didnít bother to remember it! The town itself, let me admit, is ugly. It had a strange smell. You really donít need much ti...   more

Helpless (short blog)

I was 16-years-old at the time. It was about 11 PM. Both my parents were working and didnít come home until midnight. My older brother was out attending a party, and I had the place all to myself. I made myself some microwave...   more



Are you afraid of the dark?

Two years ago I decided to read 120 Days of Sodom by Marquis De Sade. I only made it halfway through the book before I decided not to finish it - the book was simply too disturbing to read. I thought I can handle the dark ta...   more



Criticizing the critics

Reviewing the reviewer and reviewing the score is a rather controversial topic. People seem to never be satisfied with a score a game they admire received; itís either too high or too low. The comments posted on any review f...   more



I think I may have a problem

Everyone loves a familiar face, no? Someone you can relate and know inside and out. Most people have fear of the new and undiscovered, but always champion familiarity. As a literary major, my classes demand me to read and ana...   more

Game + Book = <3

Spoilers for Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and Castle in the Mist. Their cries would not reach that ancient castle perched upon the cliff at the end of the world, far to the west where the sun sank after its daily journey. Th...   more

I think we're going to be friends

My school isnít bad. Nor is it great. It fits right in the middle of mediocrity. The school isnít a prime example of excellence or a defective environment of undesirables. Itís just there. Itís not ugly or pretty. Itís not cl...   more



Gamers are going crazy

You know whats lame? This review is lame. I found the ign review to be much more helpful and most reviews by ign are horrible. All u do is bash about how bad the game is. It clearly didn't suit your tastes for a srpg but that...   more



Demonís Souls: An Allegory for Life

What is this place? The gamer is told itís where the dead communicates. Itís dark and damp. A slow and moody soundtrack plays and gives the gamer a certain type of calmness and reassurance that youíre safe in this world. Th...   more



Why the 3DS price cut is upsetting.

Nintendo recently announced an $80 price drop on the 3DS, taking the price from $250 to $170. This was done in response to poor sales, and they're selling their hardware at a loss for the first time in many years. They're com...   more

Downloadables: The petal of life

I visit her every now and then. She holds my hand with a strong grip. We run through the grass and laugh. We sometimes sit by a tree and talk. I lay my head on her lap and start to tell her stories of my life. I tell her my p...   more



Why I like linear games

Iíve been without a current generation home console for almost a year now. During this year Iíve become a lover of handheld gaming. I finally bought myself an Xbox 360 four days ago, and Iím starting to regret my decision. N...   more



Your game is kiddy!

The dreaded word ďkiddyĒ is often used as an insult to certain type of games; mostly games made by Nintendo. I question the people who have a need to express their distaste for anything ďkiddy.Ē Should we insult these ďkiddyĒ...   more



Do games have to be fun?

Do games have to be fun? Well, in my opinion they do. But there are some individuals that disagree with this opinion. Sometime itís best to agree to disagree, but I still fail to see how an individual can enjoy gaming withou...   more

How My Brother Ruined My Gaming Experience

As most of you know by now, I recently got my hands on a copy of Persona 4. I went into the game knowing nothing of the series, and to my surprise, I ended up enjoy it, until my brother came to visit me. My brother, once a...   more

Turning to Games for Comfort

Is there a game you go to in a time of need? A game that comforts you; a game that acts like the bosoms of your mother; a game that whispers: ďitís okay, everything will be fine.Ē Video games are all about escapism; and that ...   more

P2 Press Start: She Was Only Sixteen

At that time I was only sixteen years old. My life then was already gloomy. I did not associate with anyone; I even avoided speaking, and kept to myself most of the time. I tried not to look at anyone in school and always con...   more



Will You Survive The Hipster Apocalypse?

Remember the days when you and a couple of friends knew about a certain game or band? Remember how you felt? It was like you knew a secret no one else knew; and if that secret was ever let out to the public then the value of ...   more



Mommy, youíre 62! Put The Controller Down!

There seems to be a line that separates video games and anyone older than 50. If the Wii has taught us anything it's that games with simple controls might be the gateway to get older players. Simplicity is something everyone ...   more



Saying Goodbye to a Good Friend

Growing up In New York my family didnít have much money. I didnít have any games, or clothes. In fact, I would have to borrow my older brotherís clothes if I wanted to mix my style up at school. Unfortunately, he was five ye...   more

Can We All Stop being CODíist

Iím going to make this short and to the point. What is up with all the Call of Duty (CoD) hate? Really, itís starting to become a clichť around the gaming world. Now, I must admit, I am not a First Person Shooter (FPS) fan, b...   more
