It's a pirate's life for... Square Enix?

So a few years back I played Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XII and Level 5’s Rogue Galaxy within a few months of each other, and noted a disturbing number of similarities between the two. Most of my friends hadn’t played Level 5’s game so the...

 
 
 
 

Red Faction: The Armageddon of a Franchise

Red Faction is a long standing video game franchise that stand out from the crowd with it's destruction mechanics. In the first game you can take sets of explosives and create cavities and tunnels on essentially any surface. The engine coin...

 
 
 
 
 
 

L.A. Noire And The Art Of Roommate Irritation

Sometime during the first few hours of L.A. Noire, I decided that I wasn't going to play the game like a Rockstar game. Before you say it, I know it's a very different Rockstar game and it is not meant to be played like Grand Theft A...

 
 
 
 

I think I might be a pompous ass... Maybe...

I am someone who has been steeped in gaming. I started playing when I was just a few months old, and over the past two decades I’ve developed a sense of arrogance when it comes to gaming. It is something that I have reflected upon time an...

 
 
 
 

Making A Right With Three Lefts (4 Dead)

Hey guys, spoilers and speculation regarding Left 4 Dead in here. Though if you haven't already heard the things that fall under the former, you probably have no reason to read this anyway. In a recent bit of Memorial Day related fluff, I ...

 
 
 
 

We Are Spoiled.

I have seen people on forums all day today complaining because they couldn't access the PSN store, they had issues downloading their freebies, etc. I would like to take a moment of my time to vent some frustration that a lot of people don't...

 
 
 
 

The day I stopped going to Game Revolution.

I can remember years ago, long before I found the awesome site I'm now using to write this, I used to go to other sites for my gaming information. One of them was Gamespot, which I thought at the time was the absolute best the web could off...

 
 
 
 

Honest Hearts: Of biblical proportions

Re-re-re-re-re-re... reboot graphics. Game critique corner I reviewed Honest Hearts, the new DLC for New Vegas, a short little while ago and it became apparent to me a good length into the game that it wasn’t as good as Dead Money. It w...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Character Select: Gender Bending

My friend and I sat down for a game of Resident Evil 5. It had been a while since we had sat down for a good co-op game so we were both excited to get going. Before we started the game, I had the choice of being either Chris Redfield, a m...

 
 
 
 

Why Bioshock 2 is the worst game this year.

I am totally and utterly bewildered as to why 2k would want to make a second Bioshock. The first game was near perfect, one of the best games ever made. The story was concluded masterfully, there were no loose ends, and there were some amaz...

 
 
 
 

Why Square Enix and FFXIII Blo*s

Here I will list the perfect valid reasons why SE (can't bother to type the full name) and their latest abomination FFXIII really is the spawn of satan. The main character is a chick! Not this one :( And I'm done. No! Seriously this is...

 
 
 
 

Unidentified Comic Thing. I think.

Hey all you out there in internet land, if you're bored like me and looking for a break from sexual pornography, I may be able to help. Since I was both of these things, I decided to draw stupid pictures and make a semi-long comic thing th...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Bored of MW2

Okay, so maybe I shouldn't be whining about it. It is a great game, I do have to say. Unfortunately I'm not all that into FPSs. I'm also not really bored of playing it. I'm actually bored of watching my boyfriend play it into the wee ho...

 
 
 
 

Angry face: PS3 Shipment F*ckup

As I'm sure the majority of you are aware, the Playstation 3 is, in most places, very much out of stock. Where I live, and a few other states, there are virtually no PS3's at all in stores. The following is a recount of the horrible time I'...

 
 
 
 

The Beginning of Persona 2

Since I can't wait for Persona 5 even though its just been announced, I decided to play Persona 2 Innocent Sin and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. I am enjoying both, but for some reason I suck more than a $1 hooker at Persona 2. ...

 
 
 
 

Open World Games Lack Consequence

Fact! Games are becoming increasingly robust. Open worlds are taking over as the norm in gaming, so much so that anything that's linear gets a bad rap. How many trolls were in a uproar over Final Fantasy XIII and its extreme linearity?...

 
 
 
 

I'm tired of shooting people

This is a blog about a great deal of disappointment. When I bought my new gaming rig, I was anxious, no, ecstatic to play games again. For the past two years I've been living with mostly not playing anything because of the lack of a platfo...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The Short Version: Episode Zero

Welcome one, welcome all, to a new thing I decided to do. The Short Version is, and could be, a continuing series in which I take a game and try to summarize it in one picture or less. The results will be comical, boring, stupid, disgus...

 
 
 
 

My first post... yay?

So, I've kept postponing my first post for a looooooong time. Should I show off my room like most people do? Should I do a small bio so people can know me? My first post is nothing about that. I would just like you all to know that I hate ...

 
 
 
 

I could stay here all day

A moment in history

Some would say that political frenzy about videogames is as old as videogames, but the truth is that of late it has reached a dangerous level. I think about the China-Google issue over censorship. Like it or not China is not-so-democratic...
