Gaming: The future of education

Take Two, 2K Games, and Firaxis recently announced that in 2017, they'd be releasing a modified version of Civilization V as CivilizationEDU, a version of the game designed to be used as an educational tool in schools. And holy hot da...

 
 
 
 

The high and low cost of semi-modern gaming

It wasn't so long ago that I would have paid about $60 for a brand new video game. That's the going price these days (here in Canada, it's starting to look more like $70 or $80 for a brand new title, actually, but the less ssaid about...

 
 
 
 

C-Blog Oddities

So it seems that if you write a blog post at 3:00 a.m. but decide to keep it hidden so that you can copy-edit in the morning and then make it live, it still ends up posted as of the time that it was originally written, which means that by t...

 
 
 

The Spawn Campers of Guitar Hero 3

I'll admit this up front -- I like to play video games, even though I may not always be terribly good at them. Video games, at least at the consumer level are about entertainment, and not competition. Sure, it's always nice to be get a dece...

 
 
 

Dear Harmonix: I can start on Monday.

I'm writing this letter not because I'm aware of any openings in your company, but because I'm assuming there must be one -- or will be one very soon -- in your marketing and PR department. I'm assuming this based on a story I read recentl...

 
 
 

More inevitable praise for "Mass Effect"

Yeah, I know, bunches of people are raving about it. It's awesome. You can have interspecies lesbo-sex. Blah blah blah. We've all heard it before. But I can't help but make *some* comment about it anyway. I picked up Mass Effect on Tuesday...

 
 
 

Dear Harmonix: It's called "planning."

Dear Harmonix. I came into this whole rhythm game thing a little late. I didn't have a PS2, so I couldn't get on the Guitar Hero bandwagon, but by the time Guitar Hero 2 was coming for the Xbox 360, I'd heard enough about the game that I c...

 
 
 

Game Experience May Change During Online Play. Bitch.

I always smile a little bit inside when I read the ESRB warning on games that says "Game Experience May Change During Online Play." I smile because I know what it is they're trying to say, even if they're afraid to come right out and say it...

 
 
 

Teh Bewbs: Now with more bewbs

Because someone suggested it, and because I should have done it in the first place, I've updated my previous post with a handful of photos, complete with insightful and socially relevant captions. Enjoy.

 
 
 

Teh bewbs or not teh bewbs: Sex in games

I'm sort of disappointed that no one felt any need to comment on my zombie-PCXL posting, but not entirely surprised, as I was ranting about the resurrection of a 7-year-old magazine. Although it's worth noting that if PCXL -- in its origi...

 
 
 

PCXL: Sometimes dead is better...

Here's the problem with bringing things back from the dead -- for the most part, you usually get something that's all rotten and smells bad and wants to eat your brains, even if it was something beautiful and magical and wonderful in the fi...

 
 
 

Does id still have it?

With the release of Bioshock only a few days away, and a little glimpse into id Software's new engine / game "Rage" only a week or so behind us, I can't help but reminisce a little about the (arguable) father of the first person shooter, an...

 
 
 
 

I keep wasting my 15-minutes...

So I walk away for a few days, and what happens? I get the front page treatment on Destructoid, and don't even know it. In fact, the only reason I even find out about is because I get an official rebuttal. How cool is that? Pretty darn cool...

 
 
 

The Nintendo Wii (and other bad habits)

I bought a Wii a few months back, a mostly spontaneous decision that followed actually stumbling upon one of these hard to find little beauties, and because I had a few hundred dollars burning a hole in my pocket. Since I bought it, I've p...

 
 

About Lewzrone of us since 2:55 PM on 07.12.2007

My name's Todd, and I'm a gamer.

I have an Xbox 360 and a Nintendo Wii (though it's in a box somewhere). I have a newer laptop PC which I'm using to finally start playing around in my 300-title strong Steam library..

I used to have a Gamecube, but I sold. I also used to have a PS1, but I sold that too. I also used to have a Commodore 64, but that was too many years ago, and you'd have to ask my parents what happened to that one.

My taste in games is somewhat eclectic. Shooters are a blast, though it's taken me awhile to get used to running them on consoles. RPGs are great, but I tend to prefer the North American style to the Japanese style.

I like to drink sometimes, and sometimes I do it when I game, but not as much as I used to because I'm getting older and I think I need to take care of my body. That's also why I don't eat as much pizza as I used to, even though I'd still to.
