The Little Things: Catherine

One of the popular things that I never do in games is put myself in it. I am taking about the games where you either create a character or put yourself in the avatar of the main character. Mass Effect and Fallout give you that option of nam...

 
 
 

What happened to all the Japanese stuff?

I am already excited for this! Recently I made a purchase which was arguably one of the most impulse buy I have ever done. That was to pick up a PS Vita for just a couple of games. Notably the Persona and Danganronpa stuff, if it were not ...

 
 
 
 
 

Some of the Best Endings: Bioshock (2007)

Stating the obvious but just in case. This is going to be all about one ending to Bioshock (2007) so if you have not finished this game and want to be clean for it stop reading now. Also do not click on the YouTube clip below. For everyone ...

 
 
 

So MGSV...What happened?

Obviously this is going to be spoiler heavy so if you have not finished MGSV up to mission 50 and want to be clean for when you go into it stop now and press the back button. Do not go past the image from the best game in the series. For ...

 
 
 

MASSIVE SPOILERS: Life is Strange Ep.4

Okay if you missed the spoiler warning on the title I will bring it up again. There are going to be massive spoilers in this so if you do not want something truly surprising spoiled for you get out now. I will even put a picture up so you ...

 
 
 

Headcannon time: Batman is completely insane

MovieBob recently put up a video about how Batman probably needs a new origin to explain how someone with so many resources at his disposal chooses to fight crime as an individual. Instead of investing in new jobs for the lower class, equi...

 
 
 

The Morality System in Dishonoured

The morality system mechanic really picked up in the last generation of consoles. Some games used it so well that it became a selling point of the series others threw it in because the mechanic was popular. Personally I have never cared th...

 
 
 

Rest In Peace, Mate

Today was a dull day. Vast majority of it was getting to work at a job while not soul crushing does not make you jump out of bed going ‘Yay, I get to work at my favourite place today!’ After the shift was over I get news from t...

 
 
 

The fault in DMC4: SE

Being a big fan of character action games I made sure to pre-order DMC4: SE so it will be downloaded by the time I got back from work. Getting an updated version of DMC4 is good enough but getting 3 added characters is just the cherry on t...

 
 
 

Why is Splatoon so good?

I should not like this game. I am not the target demographic in any way shape or form. I am roughly a decade older than the target audience maybe two. I generally prefer classical music to...whatever the genre of music Splatoon uses. ...

 
 
 

Talking About Life is Strange...Again

I have no idea who made this but to that person, Thank You!   Downloaded episode 3 last night and since I have the day off work today decided to sit down and see what dumb shit Max was going to get herself dragged into in episode...

 
 
 

Looking Back: Assassin's Creed

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate was just announced surprising no one with its setting and barely getting the most diehard Assassin’s Creed fans excited over what is to come. With the debacle that was Unity still fresh in people...

 
 
 

The Character of Maps in Video Games

Earlier this week I was watching the Final Bosman on Gametrailers and for this week he was talking about Bloodborne. He brought up three things that he really liked about the game and one of them was the lack of a map. That one little...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Dream Project: Attack on Titan

I am sure I cannot be the only one here who sees a series they like and begins to think of how you could make an amazing game out of it. This normally amounts to nothing in reality because you know such a thing can really only belong ...

 
 
 

Beginners Guide to Character Action Games

With the re-release of dmc: Devil May Cry this week and the news about the director of Bayonetta 2 wanting to do a Spider-Gwen game I have seen a fair amount of people taking about the character action genre over the week. Like anythi...

 
 
 

A Few Hopes for Walking Dead Season 3

Telltale Walking Dead Season 1 is pretty much a great game in everyone’s camp. Season 2 while still being a good season shows the first signs of a split fan base. Whether it revolves around which side of the Kenny debate you fal...

 
 
 

The Stories in Fighting Games

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round came out recently and it did not take me long to get through the story mode. I am pretty sure it would not take anyone very long to get through the story mode either. The story itself is pretty short, simpli...

 
 
 

The Best Levels: MGS3 Virtuous Mission

The Metal Gear Solid series has the tag line Tactical Espionage Action for a reason. Many have labelled it as the series which invented the stealth game and while that can be questioned it undoubtedly is the best at it. This perfectio...

 
 
 

Boss Fight Appreciation: Abstract Daddy

What the hell am I even looking at right now? There is no denying the impact that Silent Hill 2 has had on the gaming landscape. People saw the success and have tried to replicate the same disturbed atmosphere and have not come anywhe...

 
 
 

An Issue with the Digital Market Place

There is no denying that I am a lazy person. I like that I can start my PS4 and play a game by clicking on an icon on the dashboard instead of putting a disc in. I am so slovenly that I look at the small stack of physical discs and wis...

 
 
 

Life is Strange - Episode One

It is never fun to be that guy but Life is Strange is...well...strange. This is the first episodic series that has seen the success of Telltale games last three endeavours and has tried to copy the formula. Developed by Dontnod entert...

 
 
 

What happened to you Resident Evil?

The last Resident Evil game I have played was number six. The game that tried to please everybody and pleased nobody. With a bloated budget of over one hundred million dollars it was one of Capcom’s most expensive games to be ma...

 
 
 
 

The First Tragic Comedy of 2015

Thirteen days in and gaming community already has a story that is so sad that actually becomes kind of funny. If you have not seen the story here is the link: http://www.destructoid.com/man-hate-buys-rosalina-luma-amiibo-in-bulk-so-fa...

 
 
 

Assassin's Creed Really Needs A Change

2014 was a bad year for me when it came to Assassin’s Creed. When Ubisoft announces that two AC games are coming out within days of each other that immediately set alarm bells off for me. The only problem is that I have loved th...
