Beyond: Two Souls: An Enemy’s Stand

Here’s a question that won’t make anyone’s bile well up in their throat: how much do you like David Cage and his company, Quantic Dream? I never really had a problem with him, at least originally.  But then I tried the Beyon...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I'M FUCKING GLAD VR IS SO EXPENSIVE

That's right. I'm fucking glad. That shit costs $600.00 big ones. You know what that means? WE WON'T HAVE THE INDUSTRY FOCUSED ON IT SO SOON. Unlike the latest gimmick (motion controls), it's freaking expensive to get VR so the install ba...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Robots + Boobs = PROFIT?

Remember Medabots? Yes? No? Maybe? For those of you who either didn't have a childhood, are old, or who had childhoods that didn't involve discovering the glory of robotic beetles and middle aged Japanese men being able to appear from seem...

 
 
 
 

Rebuttal: Gaming doesn't need Safe Spaces

[This isn't meant to be in any way meant to attack, bash or talk shit about Jed. This is meant as a legitimate rebuttal to the points that were brought up in his recent article and to address why people might be as riled up as they are.] W...

 
 
 
 
 
 

So I Got a 3DS

So, I got a Nintendo New 3DS, just last week. I know that I'm a bit behind the eight ball in regards to picking up a 3DS, but it's been a long time coming. It feels like it's been almost a year since my boyfriend and I were wandering around...

 
 
 
 

It Begins With You & Me!

Video games are in a weird place right now, it seems. Weirder still, however, is the place the video game community seems to be in. It's apparently a place where you can't speak your mind about a subject without making sure to belittle and ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Deadly Camp Solid

There’s a moment during the first few hours of Deadly Premonition that has always stuck with me. After a particularly long day, Special Agent Francis York Morgan rises at the crack of dawn in the Great Deer Yard Hotel. He’s ready to wo...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Forever Alone?

After playing the Rainbow Six: Siege beta for a few hours, I'm not quite convinced that Ubisoft's decision to axe a single-player campaign was the best choice. This has nothing to do with my own preference for campaigns, mind you, just tha...

 
 
 
 

First Impressions: Platformines

Interesting concept, crashes right out of the gate Platformines is terrible. No, you could stop reading now if you wanted. I'll explain my position, but that's the summary of it. A randomly generated 2d-platforming shooter, the focus of th...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A Transgender for my Transgressions

So we've all seen the news articles lately that Assassin's Creed: Syndicate is adding a transgendered character to the game, and I'm sure a lot of people are patting themselves on the back now feeling like a huge victory for the gaming indu...

 
 
 
 

Fallout 4 and the great video game equalizer

I’ve never cared much for the modern iteration of Fallout. I love the classic entries, and enjoyed both Fallout 3 and New Vegas for what they were, but have never understood the Fallout fervor that Bethesda’s recent entries have...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Survival Horror, RPG's, Fall Weather and Yoga Pants

  Sometimes I get to urge to play certain games during certain seasons. There's no logical explanation for this, nor is there some deep seeded reason for why my brain decides this is a good idea but for me certain seasons make the atmo...

 
 
 
 

No Notion of Good or Bad

I’m one of those strange and possibly terrible people who thinks that The Simpsons is still funny.  In my defense, I don’t think it’s laugh-out-loud or roll-on-the-floor funny, but for me the show has never been that...
