Stuff, stockpiling and new blog

I look towards the Summer and I see nothing. An absolute drought of video-games. I'll be seeing Inception by Christopher Nolan at the IMAX, hopefully, but other than that I have no other plans. I'll be blogging everyday of forever from no...

Nintendo Invents Freddy Vision 2.0

So… the 3DS... God I hope that name isn’t final. Nintendo is one “O” away from that other console. I’ve got to say, on the list of theories as to what the successor to the DS was going to bring to the table, 3D wasn’t in my top 5, or 1...

I'm Cheap.

I was born, am, and likely always will be cheap. It's in my nature. In the same way that people like to say that their job is in their blood, or the way that they tie their shoes, or the ritual they follow as they get ready for bed in ju...

 
 
 
 

Why Sex Should Be In More Videogames

It will sell. Ah, what? I have to write more? Fine. Sex is a topic I'm finding that more and more people are unwilling to discuss or dissect intellectually. The act isn't exactly considered public domain, so speaking about it so non-nonch...

Mom, videogames and monsters.

A kid is playing some videogame in the living room. His mother, curiously watching the moving pixels and colors in the screen for a long while, finally asks: - What is this game about? - Um... I am this ninja and I have to kill these mons...

 
 
 
 

Audio in Games - Brutal Legend

Can music be more persuasive to a player than gameplay? Hell yes it can. It took me a couple months after getting my PS3 to grab Brutal Legend, but before I had the ability to play the game, it was the game for me, and I had to have it. ...
