Portal 2 is Overrated (Slight spoilers)

Before I start being negative, let's clear something up. I loved portal 2. In fact, it'll probably end up in my top 10 videogames ever if I ever clearly establish my favorite games of all time. But seeing all these “10s”, “100s”, and other ...

 
 
 
 

Dear Nintendo, It's Not You. It's Me.

Nintendo, we’ve grown apart for quite a while. It’s time to move on now. There are a lot of people that really like you. You have a lot to offer. But let’s not fool ourselves any longer. We just aren’t for each other. You have given me gr...

 
 
 
 

P2 Press Start: Multiplayer Single-Player Mode

Being a person with more than my fair share of brothers, multiplayer gaming was very popular in our house. There was only one TV, and only one NES, or SNES, or N64, or GameCube, etc. Whichever it was, we were either going to have to play ...

L.A. Noire: Where do they go from here?

I love Team Bondi’s and Rockstar’s L.A. Noire. I feel it is an awesome game and a leap forward in emotive storytelling. I also liked the fact that the game was a bait and switch. People expected another GTA style game and they were giving a...

 
 
 
 

The Emasculation of an Action Star

Fellow blogger VenusInFur’s write-up about “Silent Hill: Shattered Memories” got me thinking of other media with more human males. He laments that more male characters aren’t shown being weak, but it’s all I’ve ever really known. This bri...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

LA Noire: In search of perfection

LA Noire is a game about people, places, connections, humanity and judgement. It’s gone beyond the general call of duty when it comes to video-games and technical innovation, it’s delivered something that may change the f...

 
 
 
 

I lost my Groove!

Yeah, when my old 60GB backward compatible PS3 died last year, I lost the ability to play the old PS2 Eyetoy dancing game "Groove" on my PS3. I was a sad girl. I was therefore delighted when my husband recently bought me a 360 with the ...

 
 
 
 

Let's Give TNA iMPACT for iOS a Try

I'm having a very bored hungover Saturday so thought I would give you some unedited thoughts AS THEY HAPPEN of TNA iMPACT. The original TNA for iOS was a weird 2D turn-based wrestling game which I kind of enjoyed. It was a fun diversion, ...

 
 
 
 

$21.95

See that price. It's the price of Minecraft right now. It's a price that is plaguing my head at the current moment. I have more than $21.95. Still, it seems like a lot of money for a game that is not even finished. So let me give you some b...

 
 
 
 

Who finds Mileena sexy, anyway?

Recent comments made by Howard Stern, an American radio host and prominent ‘shock jock‘, provoked anger in me. I realise how idiotic that sounds -- ’shock jocks’, after all, are apparently dedicated to provoking anger and resentment. Howeve...

 
 
 
 

5 Gamer Reasons the world will not end on 05/21

So, if any of you paid attention, I posted a blog earlier this week about a few things I was thinking about regarding the supposed end times and how I'd rather see it go down. Included were two links for articles about said event; one ridic...

Single and Multiplayer can exist Together

There are several articles around the internet talking about how many games today have multiplayer and how many of them are just an afterthought in the developing cycle. Others are just the contrary and we end up with an awful campaign an...

 
 
 
 

David Cage: Respect Is A Good Thing

A Mercenary Attitude Towards Companionship

No thanks There is a particular popular gaming trope that has never gelled with me. Escorting. In the real world this word makes me think of a couple of things: High paid, glamorous women of ill repute, cheap women who don't look like the...

Supporting Valve over epic is the morally correct choice at this Epic makes their people work 100 hour work weeks to support Valve cant force their employees to work overtime on games they arent making!
