'Prey 2' might actually be awesome

If you read my review of “Prey” in the Shippensburg Slate (and you most likely didn’t), you’d know I wasn’t a fan of the game. The game’s big draws felt gimmicky and nothing really stood out to me. The portals, wall-walking and alien settin...

 
 
 

Gaming Regrets - Steel Battalion

Even though I’ve been playing video games in some form or another since I was a wee babe, there were some games or fads that I missed or just didn’t have the time to play. Though there were plenty of games I wish I had played at the time (m...

 
 
 

An open letter to Harmonix: Why do you hate 311?

Dear Harmonix, First of all, I just wanted to say thanks for so many awesome games over the years. I thoroughly enjoyed Guitar Hero while it was still yours and I currently enjoy shredding or crashing my drum pads in Rock Band. I’ve even b...

 
 
 
 

Battlfield 3 hand-cam footage has me all atwitter

Sorry about the long layoff - my birthday was last week and I didn't get much extra work done. Speaking of - you didn't get me anything. What gives? But I'm not just here to talk about me (seriously, though, I'm waiting on those presents)...

 
 
 

Cautiously optimistic about Dead Island

If you have eyes, been on the internet lately and are a fiend for zombie games, you’ve no doubt seen the trailer for Dead Island – the open-world, zombie FPS action RPG. Though it’s one of the most ambitious titles I’ve heard of in a long t...

 
 
 

About time for Activision to unplug Guitar Hero

Oh my, the situation does seem to be getting dire for rhythm gaming fans. After news at the end of 2010 that Viacom had sold “Rock Band” developer Harmonix, it seems that Activision is following suit with its own rhythm franchises in a simi...

 
 

About Harumphone of us since 2:56 PM on 09.27.2010

I never how know to make "About yous" (you's?) sound cool but here goes. I've always been a gamer, it seems - I got an NES when I was four or five and never looked back. I was definitely a Sega kid, but mostly because my Mom told me I couldn't have an SNES too (and also because Sega was the shit, duh). I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm a Microsoft fanboy, but I definitely prefer my 360 to the PS3. Even though playing games (and reading about games and writing about games) takes up a lot of time, I still manage to actually work a real job at a newspaper and love watching Archer and MMA. Right now I'm really looking forward to Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Brink.
