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

Very Quick Tips: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is one of my favorite games and its sequel does everything it did, only better, and adds a lot more content including single-player campaigns for each side and a large overworld brimming with secrets....   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

Cell games: I tried to build a pacifist utopia but the Internet ate me up

Score attack! Mario, Metal Gear, Witcher, and more games better than Star Wars

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

Hooray for Digital Hollywood?

Until Dawn’s success is much deserved, considering it was co-written by the guy who gave us The Last Winter, in which Ron Perlman and Connie Britton are terrorised by a ghost moose. Jokes aside, and regardless of the story’s int...   read

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Origins

Silent Hill: Origins opened with an outsider saving a little girl from a house fire. But when you look back on its place in the series, it meant so much more than a simple rescue. Travis Grady had problems of his own, but they meant very li...   read

'We're drift compatible': My favorite weird co-op games

I wanted to be The Wizard

When I was a kid in the ancient days of the early ‘90s I was part of a church youth group. Obviously this was before I morphed into a surly, foul-mouthed teen (and then an even more profane adult). Every year the youth group would par...   read

Very Quick Tips: Destiny's King's Fall raid

As previously mentioned, I think the King's Fall raid in Destiny is the best offering yet. It's clean, doesn't have very many bugs, and has a lot of variety within its walls. At this point I'm sitting on 15 clears, some for gear, some ...   read

Destiny's Taken King expansion alienates casual fans more than Year One did

Destiny has noticeably improved since The Taken King dropped. This is partly because there's a lot more to do than just grind the awful Prison of Elders activity from the last bad expansion, but additionally, the game has gotten m...   read

How the hell did I become a MOBA player?

Okay, I'm going to let you take a peek behind the curtain on this one. I chose to tackle a MOBA for the second entry of Out of my Comfort Zone because I thought it would be funny. I thought it would be a story of failure, pain, abuse, and b...   read
