An open letter to Gearbox regarding Duke Nukem.

GUYS, GET OVER IT! Girls Game. Some Don't.

It is 2011 and I still see frequent blogs and articles of how to get that girlfriend or wife of yours into video games. Guys want to find ways to coax their girls into a passion for their hobby. Publishers try to scheme up ways to tap into ...

 
 
 
 

Remake, Remaster, Rehash

Keza MacDonald at IGN thinks video game remakes are great. I disagree...sort of. MacDonald asserts that, when handled correctly, remakes, remasters and re-releases are an extremely good thing, both for the industry and for us. Accordin...

 
 
 
 

Good Does Not Mean Fun

There is something that has been bugging me recently. I have a friend (don't all laugh at once) who insists that for a game to be good it has to be fun. Now, before we get any further, we need to define these two words otherwise I'll get in...

So many ugly people!

Wow I'm shallow. I want to get married and have kids, I really do, but I just can't bring myself to marry an ugly man. Unfortunately, all the men are ugly! Now I've been through some hard times, and I'm a brawler, so I've packed on som...

 
 
 
 

I'm Trying to Stay Excited About Prototype 2...

I'm one of the few that preferred the original Prototype over Infamous. By a lot, actually. In fact, whenever the debate came up, I would begin to feel like a Twilight Zone protagonist: everyone I know, everyone online, and every critic in...

 
 
 
 

Diversity what what?!?: Hookers Edition

The Real Truth About Why You Hate Reviews PERIOD!

I commented on the destructoid review guide. Admittedly at first just a quick simple response. But, then. I could not help but have my mind run wild on why I know for me, and how it seems for many, as to why we hate it when a game we like r...

Duke Nukem Forever Gets Broken Down (and pissed on)

Here is my breakdown of Duke Nukem Forever: -The entire game is based on an unspoken irony. -Duke Nukem's charisma, comes from his lack of charisma. -Duke Nukem's personality comes from a one dimensional personality. -Duke Nukem's greatest ...

 
 
 
 

Hey Guess What? ... EA's F**KED!

CONSCIOUSTOID #2: When I was your age

"I'm a Marketing Tool" (a.k.a. "Core Gamer")

You're Not A Real Fan
