Waste of Time

Even though I vowed to look on the bright side with my return blog, I never stated that there wouldn't be sad ones. Sorry if this sounds dark and evil. You have to expel your demons from time to time. Video games have may ris...

Forget Me Not

A funny thing occurred after I finished Remember Me recently; I didn't like the game. I couldn't come to terms with the sluggish combat and I was generally annoyed with how much exposition there was in the dialog. The game s...

Better With Age: NIN In Your Face!

I remember the first time I tried Quake. It was at a friend's house during a sleepover. His brother and I got addicted to the deathmatch part of the game and began exploring the levels. We uncovered hidden pathways, secret w...

Portal Stories: Mel - Review

With Valve having seemingly given up game development, fans of their IP's have been wondering what their next game will be. Instead of waiting, Prism Studios decided to craft an unofficial prequel to Portal 2 in the mean tim...

Hadouken To Win (Short Blog)

Fighting games are a curious beast in the modern era. Since the internet is prevalent on every gaming platform, you'd think developers would be adding characters left and right into their titles. We haven't really seen ...

REFUND ME!

Valve recently decided to implement a refund policy on Steam. For a year or so, this was the only thing EA had a leg up on Valve. Their platform, Origin, allowed a refund for any reason within 48 hours. Even the website...

Frame of Reference

So Hatred is out and nobody really seems to care. This game sparked a huge controversy over it's content and now the game is old news. Having seen some footage of the final build, even I am left wondering what the big d...

Nostalgia Goggles

Nostalgia can be a cruel beast. We often have fond memories of games, movies or places from childhood that just do not hold up in the present. This doesn't mean that those memories are worthless, just that our perceptio...

Forsaken Age

I don't know quite how to feel about Broken Age. I want to scream and yell and claim it is a terrible experience, but I don't overtly hate the game. I had a partial bit of responsibility for bringing it to life (funding...

Next-Gen is Finally Here!

Next-generation gaming has official begun! With the launch of Mortal Kombat X, we finally have a game that was completely impossible to run on Xbox 360 and PS..... Wow; I couldn't even finish that sentence before notici...

The Linearity of Time

Game developers have made great strides in providing gamers with multiple choices for a game's story. This has resulted in many critics and players labeling games as "non-linear" or "open-world." They all allow you to t...

The Convention that Changed it All

Absence makes the heart grow fonder; while the origin of this quote is unknown, the impact of those words can be profound. Removing yourself from your favorite place can be quite difficult. Sometimes the change is neede...

My Favorite Game: Mega Man 2

I honestly didn't plan on responding to this month's Community Assignment until just a couple of days ago. You're all more than aware of my love for the Mega Man series, so my harping yet again about robots and jumping t...

Are VIdeo Games Sexist: What the heck is going on here?

Guys, I saw this and had to come back home, to try and figure things out. And this isn't to say there's actual sides to be had, or rigth stances or wrong stances... but huh?  Is gaming actually transcending an ideo...

Tony Ponce was able to build this AMA in a cave

The other day, the lovely Brittany Vincent posted an AMA so that the readers could get to know their favorite new editor a little better. I love it when the "big dawgs" open themselves up to the community like that....

ADDENDUM: Linkle IS female Link after all!

Hey, everyone! As you might have noticed, I've decided to start doing musings again in my spare time. It's been too long since I've written anything that wasn't weighed down by deadlines or the need to be run past a group o...

The Legend of Korra proves why we need a female Link

I just got around to watching the Book 3 finale of The Legend of Korra (heart-wrenching ending, I might add). I'm always amazed by how good that show is. Sure, it doesn't quite reach the same lofty heights as The Last Airbe...

GTA V: "Why Go On?"

Grand Theft Auto was a series that blew my mind back in middle school. It was so edgy and violent. It felt almost wrong to be fantasizing about the game, but I wanted to pull back the curtains and look inside at the scandal...

The Game That Broke Me

The dream of most writers posting blogs on gaming websites is to one day review games for money. We all make claims like, “It doesn’t matter if the game is bad. I CAN DO IT!” A lot of us even consider ourselves experts in t...

There's V in my COD?!

When Call of Duty made the jump to the modern era, realism wasn’t on the agenda. I mean, the game was certainly fashioned after combat with guns in a semi-realistic manner, but the scenarios and settings were clearly fantas...

Dragon's Crown is Sexist?

Is Dragon’s Crown really that controversial of a game? What, exactly, is wrong with the art style? Sitting here and listening to TotalBiscuit’s podcast, I’m stunned. I’ve seen coverage of the game on Destructoid, but I didn...

My Reaction to Phil Fish's Over-reaction

On Twitter today, Phil Fish of Polytron has confirmed that Fez 2 will be canceled. This comes right off the heels of a debate that Fish was having with Marcus Beer from GameTrailers "Annoyed Gamer" segment. A series of hig...

Interviews from SGC

I was a bit busy at SGC this weekend. Not intent to sit on my ass and enjoy everything, I got some interviews about upcoming games! These were posted to a site I'm contributing to, Gamer's Association. Since they deal with u...

A Father's Fight: Asura's Wrath is Awesome

BURST! The right trigger glyph flashes on the screen as Asura's blazing anger reaches yet another limit break, flames licking the chrome on the thin and understated health/rage meters. I slam my index finger against the bu...

Sex: Sorry, no...

Sexy and video games are just two things that seem to fail together. I cannot claim that I haven’t been aroused by a digital temptress, but more often than not, sexy in gaming just falls flat. For the worst possible example...

Briskly Walking "The Line!"

So, that “Spec Ops: The Line” was quite the game, right?........Right?.......Ugh, sometimes I hate being me. Just the other day, I finished my journey through Dubai in what seems to be record time; 5 hours. I played on the...

Play My Game: Article Of Loathing

For about 20 years now, I've wanted to make games. Up until about a year ago, I hadn't made much more than a simple ascii game in PASCAL and a hand full of levels in a handful of level editor enabled games. For the past f...

KingSigy's Quest - Professor Layton Series

Inspired by Magnalon and his constant destruction of entire game series, I’ve decided to finally jump in the fray and represent a series that is often overlooked: Professor Layton. You probably wouldn’t expect someone like...
