An open letter to Gearbox regarding Duke Nukem.

Dear Gearbox, I honestly doubt you're going to see this little community blog I'm posting, but I'm going to pretend you have found it and are now reading it. The reason I'm writing this is to give my opinions on Duke Nukem Forever, and als...

 
 
 
 

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...

 
 
 
 

Will Consoles Survive the Next Generation?

Edge has a great interview from their upcoming issue with Phil Harrison (former Sony Computer Entertainment exec). There’s a lot to dig into and I encourage everyone to go and read the full interview, but for now I want to focus on Harri...

 
 
 
 

I'm Going to Pitch you a Game...

And you're going to listen. No, no excuses, sit there and listen. I want this game to be made, and I want to helm this game because it will make me rich famous and respected. All shall love me and despair. Basic Synopsis: Video game design...

 
 
 
 

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

I'll be honest, I lied - there are no hookers in this blog, but wipe your tears away my friend, for I have to tell you about how evil the games industry is and how we must all hate it: right from this second! ....yeah this second, no, yeah,...

 
 
 
 

Bioshock Infinite: Finding my own voice

Mmmm… Oh. I think Irrational Games may do the impossible and make a sexually attractive female character actually have more depth than her cleavage. Just sayin’. Bioshock Infinite looks to be Bioshock in the sky. From the massive revea...

 
 
 
 

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...

 
 
 
 

PSN Users = "butthurt"?

VG247 has an interview with someone who claims to be part of Anonymous, the group associated with recent cyber attacks against Sony. This “Anon” as he/she is called, noted the following: “Our intention with our initial attacks on the P...

 
 
 
 
 
 

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!

So after posting that piece of crap last week, that I called a blog, I headed to the mountains of Tibet, became a Buddhist monk while living in a cave to find myself and the answers to the universe. After 83 years, I still had no answer, w...

CONSCIOUSTOID #2: When I was your age…

I think it’s safe to assume that every gamer has some experience with a real-time strategy game of some fashion. For me, Command & Conquer: Red Alert was the first game I played online. Likewise, every gamer had a buddy who played Starcraft...

 
 
 
 

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

Something I've been trying to wrap my head around lately is the 'Core Audience' pride that I see going round and round videogame blogs, comments, message boards etc. etc. etc. Often it is brought up with an air of superiority over "Casual" ...

 
 
 
 

You're Not A Real Fan

I got into a rather interesting discussion with a friend the other day. It mainly had to do with the concept of being a fan, and how I'd told her she wasn't. She argued with me about the matter, and we had a smashing good time going back an...

All Sony and Microsoft have to do is release a fully integrated tablet, or a tablet with a screen to compete. This Wii U thing isn't next generation gaming. Nintendo has made official comments about their stock dropping more than 10% sin...

 
 
 
 

Destructing VGCats's Nerd Rage strip

http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=280 Yeah, I know it's old news, but it's a good indication of what is wrong with a lot of video game fans. At first glance, I thought it was a parody with how ridiculous the arguments were, but so man...
