Objectifying Pig

The end of summer is nearing and one thing has dawned on me; I might actually miss some of the co-workers that are leaving. What else dawns on me, though, is how much of an objectifying pig I am. You see, I�m truly saddened that one girl...

 
 
 

GAMES! PRECIOUS GAMES! (Short Blog)

Sony recently started their relaunch of �Playstation Plus� by offering a deal completely unheard of this generation; FREE GAMES! For $50 a year, you get 12 free games a month and can keep them as long as your Plus subscription gets renewe...

 
 
 

Talking Bout Your Sex Appeal!

Tomorrow sees the release of Suda51�s newest title, �Lollipop Chainsaw.� I know very little about the actual gameplay and there doesn�t seem to be any extensively in-depth previews on the internet for me to read. All I really have to say ...

 
 
 

E3: What's the Goddamned Point?!

E3! It�s the biggest event in a gamer�s year. Journalists pour into the Nokia Theater to witness, first hand, developer�s biggest new titles for the next fiscal year. The event has been a staple in previous years for revealing huge titles...

 
 
 

Indie DLC = Old School DLC

I�m not sure if I�m too old school, but all of this recent DLC is starting to wear me thin. Every time I see a new game come out, I immediately think, �Might as well wait for the GOTY/Ultimate edition!� A few of my friends have been playi...

 
 
 

The End of an Era

As the curtains closed on �Assassin�s Creed: Revelations� for me, one thing struck me; I really love Ezio. The stories of his games have gotten progressively more convoluted and incomprehensible, but he is such a shining example of a grea...

 
 
 

Story in My Shooter?

The aspect of a shooter having a strong plot is something alien to the gaming world. While I love first person shooters and have always played a bunch of them, my recent years have seen me drifting back to my youth (platformers) and tryin...

 
 
 

Independent and Loving It!

I didn�t spend this past weekend playing triple A titles or getting any multiplayer action in Call of Duty. I didn�t spend this past weekend worrying about whether people were talking to me or interested in my surroundings. I was too busy...

 
 
 
 

What I Want in Life

Last week marked a particularly high and low point of my life. On the plus side (hugely, I might add), I got to meet Troy Sander. Troy is the lead singer/bassist of the metal group Mastodon. He signed my friend�s LPs and we even had a sma...

 
 
 

I Killed 1000 Men for a Trophy!

�Spec-Ops: The Line� looks to breath some air into the third person genre. Not only will it be exploring the depths of a soldiers mind, but it seems poised to bring an element of randomization with its sandstorms. All in all, the game cou...

 
 
 

A "Journey" Without Death

I�ve heard mountains of praise for the recently released PSN exclusive, �Journey.� Gamers and critics alike are claiming it to be an �experience� unlike any other in the medium. Its lackadaisical nature and user friendliness have allowed ...

 
 
 

THAT'S SOME FOOTBALL!

Sports are not a part of my life. I�ve never really cared about organized competition and I certainly have no clues about the hottest teams or players. Why is it, then, that my current gaming atmosphere is three sports games? Damn you, EA...

 
 
 

Hiding in your Game Attic...

I�ve never been a big used games kind of guy. I�ve always tried to support developers in their processes. I felt that, by buying brand new, my money would contribute to bettering their products. That�s been a bit of a farce this generatio...

 
 
 

But...But It's My Content! (Short Blog)

Finally, we have a topic that my unabashed hatred can lend itself to. Just this week, hackers took to their Xbox 360 copies of �Street Fighter X Tekken� to discover that all 12 of the rumored DLC characters were actually on the disc. Cap...

 
 
 

I'm...J-J-Jaded!

I�m a habitual complainer. If there�s one thing you can count on me for, it�s realistic and consistent criticism. I do not let things fall through the cracks. If I see a problem, it�s promptly put on trial. Still, I�ve noticed something ...

 
 
 

An Ode to Shooters (Short Blog)

Guns, guts, glory and gore, When gripping the trigger, I'm craving more, Lining up my shots and firing away, Making sure you won't see another day. Stalking the prey and counting my shells, Grabbing ammo so all is well, Stacking on armor...

 
 
 

I've Fallen Again...And Hard!

It seems I�ve done it again. I�ve fallen hard for my old friend. Snake just has a way with words and his blue eyes are so enchanting. Yes, I�m talking about Metal Gear. This past weekend, I beat �Metal Gear Solid 3� again. Long considere...

 
 
 

Predictions - Game of the Year Edition

Image courtesy of Next Gen Gaming Blog. Gaming trends have changed over the past few years. The rise of online passes and DLC clubs has led me to come to one sure-fire prediction for 2012: Game of the Year Editions! Even two years ago, t...

 
 
 

Resolutions - Broadening My Horizons

I can�t begin to tell you how many games I finished this year. �Yakuza 3,� �Demon�s Souls,� the entire Zelda series; this year has been one of the most productive for me in terms of finishing virtual tasks. As I�m literally a few hours aw...

 
 
 

I'll Never Cross The River

Nature nurture heaven and home Sum of all and by them driven To conquer every mountain shown But I've never crossed the river Puscifer's song "The Humbling River" pretty much sums up my experience with Dark Souls. While I've cleared a fe...

 
 
 

Xenophilia - Ready, Steady, Go!

While I am a gamer who knows no bounds, I can honestly say that I haven�t imported many games. I�ve played my share of Japanese titles, but usually years later when they are localized. Still, there are 2 games that I just couldn�t be with...

 
 
 

It's My Opinion, Deal With It!

While I�m not afraid to blog about my life or my personal feelings on any range of topics, there is one type of blog I will avoid like the plague: reviews. See, it�s always fine to write about why you think something is great, but making ...

 
 
 

Thanksgiving - Cooperation

Other than the obvious (i.e. Gaming Exists), I can�t think of a whole lot of things in gaming that I�m thankful for. Yeah, I like HD graphics, downloadable games and online play, but those are so common that I can�t say I�m especially gra...

 
 
 

The Implications of Disappointment

Anticipation is a cruel mistress. It can often lead to very good things being perceived as awful. Last week, I finally got my copy of �Uncharted 3: Drake�s Deception,� and I had been dying for months to play the game. Uncharted is my favo...

 
 
 
 

The Illusion of Choice

Having recently finished a second playthrough of �Deus Ex: Invisible War,� (after 8 years!), there is something that has been boggling my mind. Why is the series so horrible at displaying an illusion of choice? Each game allows players t...

 
 
 

Favorite Levels - Chateau DuClare

Sometimes, a video game needs to take a break. When you�re constantly shooting down bad guys, leveling up your character or engaged in cutscenes, a game can get grating. It�s nice to have a level task you with nothing or something simple ...

 
 
 

h8 Out of 10

A strange predicament is hitting the video game industry as of late. According to many �fanboys� and a few developers, a review score of �8 out of 10� has been deemed equal to mass murder. The trend is called �h8 out of 10� and it�s compl...

 
 
 

Online Passes - You So "Naughty"

A lot has been said about online passes. Destructoid�s �Jim Sterling� is hugely against them while Screwattack�s �Stuttering Craig� doesn�t see any problem with them. Where do I stand on the matter, though? I�m with Naughtydog. Naughtydo...
