Finesse with blogging

Hey guys, im looking for a few bloggers to band with to create a small group focusing on a few games such as League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm and upcoming releases which grab attention such as the game No Man Sky.  I want to blog...

 
 
 
 

Adventure Wanted: NO GENWUN ALLOWED

When it comes to video games, loyalty can take strange shapes. Finding yourself loyal to a character, well, that's easy enough. Loyalty to a company, a developer, those are all very common things to see amongst gamers. You can even find peo...

 
 
 
 

Challengers Wanted: MEDIC!

  Team Fortress 2. What hasn't been said about Valve's team based first person shooter/hat simulator? Since it's release in 2007 as part of the Orange Box compilation (which included Half-Life 2, it's two episodes, and the or...

 
 
 
 

Challengers Wanted: Toad Up

When choosing a particular character strength, I usually lean toward agility and speed over straight up power or strength.  This is probably due to my own real life characteristics, but I also just find it to be a more interesting app...

 
 
 
 

Challengers Wanted: HADOKEN!

I play a lot of fighting games. I neglect other games to play fighting games. Something about the genre appeals to me. Though the games do not have finite ending points, they have an almost infinite amount of depth. The player chooses how m...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Challengers wanted: The Military Man

I still remember the first time I played Street Fighter II like it was yesterday. I was between 8 & 10 years old and my mother had taken my brother and I to an ice skating rink in San Diego. They had a small arcade there and of course m...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Sales Are My Kryptonite

    I was recently talking to a few of my coworkers about gaming. I think we all agreed that the perfect day was waking up, eating, gaming, napping, eating, gaming, …repeat until you have to earn money for electricity and ...

 
 
 
 

Better With Age: Megabomber

Talk about cutting it close, Zetta! Think you could have waited to midnight to start writing this?Even as I sit down to write this response to the Blogger's Wanted prompt, I'm not fully sure what I want to write about. It's not that I don't...

 
 
 
 

Better with Age: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

Warning: fanboying ahead. Yes, I think this rather accessible and maybe even simple ARPG's getting better with age. Not because playing it over and over will give you new insights into the story — let's face it, the story isn't all th...

 
 
 
 

Better with Age: Actually Finishing Mega Man

Actually Finishing the Damn Game: I have been a fan of Mega Man games for a long time. Yet, I never actually managed to finish any one of them before I played them in the Mega Man anniversary editions that included all the original 8. Befor...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Better with Age: A Journey worth retaking.

Few games can be said to be truly pure. Modern games usually branch out in so many directions with endless grinding, 100's of collectibles and trinkets and millions of pointless side quests. They're so laden down with fluff that their ...

 
 
 
 

Better With Age: Final Fantasy VI

Side note: Okay, so i'm kinda of cheating here, since technically i already wrote this article, but damn! i just wanted to talk about this game so freaking much, and re-reading my previous piece on the subject, i found it complete sh*t. So...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Better With Cage: A brilliant baby

It's 1999. Well, not actually. What I mean is that I want you to imagine that year. It was like a whole damned century ago, but bare with me. This was about half a century before Cage set the industry ablaze and we all pretended to enjoy h...

 
 
 
 

Better with Age: Gotcha!

There I stood, in a grassy field marked by the footprints of an ancient creature, ready to take my first step into a new experience. It did not take long until I had selected my prey. Determined, I prepared my net and waited for ...

 
 
 
 

Better With Age: NIN In Your Face!

I remember the first time I tried Quake. It was at a friend's house during a sleepover. His brother and I got addicted to the deathmatch part of the game and began exploring the levels. We uncovered hidden pathways, secret weapons and all ...

 
 
 
 

Worse With Age: This Guy Right Here

I don't know if this is going to "count" as a Bloggers Wanted but here's a little twist on the idea.  Also before I begin the idea was mostly inspired by this wonderful blog, thanks guy!  So without further ado my BW blog:   ...

 
 
 
 

Better With Age: Final Fantasy IX

Final Fantasy IX was actually my first foray Final Fantasy. I got into the game late, so to speak. To be honest, though, I wouldn’t want any other Final Fantasy to be my first. FFIX is my favorite game in the series, for what I believ...

 
 
 
 

Better with age: Morrowind

Yeah, this is going to be a hard sell to some people who haven’t played this one, I’m sure. Morrowind is the 3rd game in the venerable elder scrolls franchise, and one that has remained in people’s minds for years after it...

Better With Age: Dungeons and Dragons

The four of us sat around in the living room of a friends house with scraps of paper, pencils and dice, and not a proper rulebook in sight. Just a few scattered remnants of random campaign books; Menzoberranzan, The Horde, a couple of Spell...
