Hitting the streets with Beat Cop's preview build

I used to work in a police station, two to be precise. Nothing special, just simple administrative stuff, but working for the law opened my eyes to one major revelation: police work is boring. Still, that hasn’t stopped me from loving...   read

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Downpour

“Lost the plot and for what?” sang Ed Harcourt on “Here Be Monsters,” one of Silent Hill: Downpour’s licensed tracks; a question easily applied to the acerbic state of the series in 2012. Looking back, Downpour...   read

Musings of The Secret World noob Part 2: Raiding in the Plague Age

I love co-op in my video games, especially when it comes to close-knit survival. There’s something exciting about a group of strangers instinctively realising that, despite their differences, they need each other to survive. Left 4 De...   read

The soundtrack of my gaming life

I have a deep love of ritual. Like my caveman ancestors before me (who would rally around a stone obelisk, or a collection of goat skulls, and dance to the pounding beat of skin drums), I have my own profane customs. Nothing puts me more i...   read

How I learned to love fighting games again

Asking people why they love a certain kind of game is a waste of time. Our tastes are a complex combination of factors with granular levels and waxing and waning moods, an alchemical formula that requires fourth dimensional physics and forb...   read

I translated the new Persona 5 trailer, so let's analyze it

Persona 5's a thing, eh? The game is set for a Japanese release this September, but at the moment, overseas fans are still left in the dark as to when localized versions of the latest in Atlus' hit series will make it to their shores. I can...   read

The not-so-secret musings of The Secret World noob

As some of you already know, I almost lost the fire inside. Video games didn’t excite me anymore, and while that was mostly down to their ever-decreasing circles of creativity, I’d also gotten lazy, stuck in my ways. The same th...   read

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Shattered Memories

Shattered Memories opens with a perfect family moment captured on VHS. A young girl proclaims undying love for her father, before the tape stops, rewinds, and replays the scene again. The repetition continues until that warm feeling in your...   read

PS VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive: A breakdown in cost, accessories, and specs

VR has a serious issue in the real world

With the impending release of retail VR headsets early next month, I've been working out how to rearrange my house to accommodate room-tracking technology. Moving tables, pushing back sofas, securing down TVs, and taking into account how...   read

Things that are less expensive than the HTC Vive

With the current exchange rate, the $799 Vive will cost roughly $1099 in Canadian dollars where I live (not counting taxes and any extra charges). That's a whole lot of cash. While I'm as excited as anyone else at the idea of stumbling arou...   read

Dream Casting: Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie - A Happy Madison Production

By now you've probably seen the recent news of a Sonic the Hedgehog movie, or maybe you caught wind of it when it was news the first time two years ago. Either way, I'm here to answer the question that no one is asking: who should be c...   read

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Homecoming

Homecoming was the Hollywood take on Silent Hill. All crisp and clean, with a Jensen Ackles-type in the lead, and a straightforward plot that paid more homage to Dean Koontz’s Phantoms than Koji Suzuki’s Dark Water. What was onc...   read

OMG! It's Stevil T's personal faves of 2015!

At the start of 2015, I was basically done with video games. I’d made myself a promise to read more books and play fewer games, which lasted all of two months before I read Willy Vlautin’s utterly depressing Northline and became...   read

There are exactly 100 professional reviews culled on the Bloodborne Metacritic page. Of that 100, 99 are "positive" and 1 is "mixed," a lowly 7/10, which I'd suggest is still positive. Oh, so nobody dislikes this game? When I started writin...   read
