show don't tell

Shooting Nazi’s in the face with a shotgun is pretty damn fun right? How about shooting Nazi’s in the face with two shotguns? Twice as fun? Yeah, that’s how math works,… However it may be Wolfenstein the new order was a damn good ti...

 
 
 

Evolve stage 2 Review

In a ballsy move Turtlerock tries to redeem Evolve by going free to play. You may remember Evolve, that game littered with DLC but lacking actual content, excitement and fun. I always thought Evolve would be better suited as a free to ...

 
 
 

Gamertags the good, the bad and the cringy

Over the years I’ve collected quit a number of used gamertags. Some were nice, some were stupid, most of them were stupid when I come to think of it, and some were just such a cliché it makes you literally cringe. So today...

 
 
 

Are we too harsh on Call of Duty: infinite warfare?

Maybe you would like Call of Duty to start making modern first person shooters again? Maybe you remember a time that you had a yearly world war II game to look forward to. It seems like ages ago that you were able to look forward to th...

 
 
 

Theory vs practice (guess who’s back edition)

After weeks of exams, exam related stress and other stuff I’m finally back to blogging. Just for today I wanted to take a look at some games that are like me going to college, it seems great in theory but in practice it leaves a ...

 
 
 

Racism and watchdogs 2

So watchdogs 2 has been announced, and personally, I was quite impressed whit how much they seem to have lightened to mood from the original. A lot of people however where pretty upset. These mostly took issue with the new protagonist ...

 
 
 

Sniper AI with no fucks to give

It’s a beautiful evening, the stars are out, people are gathering in the streets, diners and local pubs, while you watch them from a distance through the crosshairs silently whispering Bang. You secured the best spot on the rooft...

 
 
 

Herd culture

There will be no funny intro, mainly because I’m not a very funny guy. But now that this turned into an intro of its own, we can get on with whatever gibberish I’ll be writing today. We’ve all experienced some kind of...

 
 
 

Shotgun AI with nothing to live for

Today I’d like to take a moment to think about the kamikaze’s of the 21st century, the modern day berserkers if you will. I am of course talking about shotgun AI. You see, unlike other AI, the shotgunners are the guys you ...

 
 
 

Budget reviews: pay day 2

So this one is the first of a series of reviews I plan on doing. So why budget reviews? you ask. Why games that are already out for so long? It’s not because you’re on a budget, it’s because I am. Rob banks they said...

 
 
 

My very own review scale.

I’ve been wanting to get into reviewing games for a while now, and decided “oh, what the hell”. I kind of lack to money to buy games at release but I’ll figure something out, it’s not like I ever plan anyt...

 
 
 

To be oblivion

I still remember the day I picked up oblivion. I had never even heard of the elder scrolls series, but like most people I was pretty excited for Skyrim as the commercials where totally awesome. So I was browsing my local game store and...

 
 
 

This article is completely OP

Today is all about two terms, over powered and nerfed, and just as a bonus we’re going to discuss balancing, as well and some other stuff just for the fun of it. The term over powered is a fairly straight forward one, right? For...

 
 
 

Beta impressions: Mirror’s edge catalyst

By the grace of Odin I finally got some hands on time with mirror’s edge catalyst, and the time has come to let you all know what I think of it. First off, as this is a thing that I tend to do a lot when talking about a game, I&...

 
 
 

So I had a meeting today

I’ve been really conflicted about the making of this blog post, as I don’t like to talk about my personal life and will likely never do so again in the future. However these last months have been some of the worst of my sho...

The ones who live where others die (survivalware)

You know those few games that are still around after such a long time that they just became a part of the industry. They’ve been around for so long, over timespans in which other games got shut down, cancelled, developers went ba...

 
 
 

One beast to consume us all (the mainstream)

I wasn’t planning on writing anything today but then I heard this cover of a song that I like and it gave me the inspiration I needed. Today’s blog is about the mainstream and how it’s a threat to our beloved communit...

 
 
 

Hopes and dreams: Total war Warhammer

For those confused, I’m just going to do the same thing as for mirror’s edge and take a look at the things known about this hopefully lovely game, and also the things I want and don’t want. So why the this title inste...

 
 
 

What we know: Mirror’s edge 2

So the few people among you we read my stuff will know that I’m tremendously excited for mirror’s edge catalyst. I’ve been trying to temper this enthusiasm a bit, and the best way I’ve found for this is just to ...

 
 
 

Beta impressions: DOOM

Yes today I finally get to talk doom. Some server issues prevented me from playing yesterday, but today I finally was able to get my ass kicked online, and got it kicked I have. So is worth getting hyped for the release or should you p...

 
 
 

Let’s close the gate FOREVER

So I got some actual news to report today, a nice little story about how an anonymous group of people try to ruin other people’s lives out of a false sense of justice. Yes this is about Gamer Gate, and no I don’t have a sin...

 
 
 

fear of the dark

So some of you may have heard a bad ass classic metal soundtrack by reading this title. If that’s the case, hallo metal bother/sister, others may think of some scary childhood memory, or a freakishly scary game So although I really w...

 
 
 

relating to a Digital Suicide

So today I read something that got me thinking about the Romine brothers, and yes I’m going to talk about them again. But I’m going to try something different and try to relate to them. I’m going to try and see these events from their...

 
 
 

Hopes and dreams for e3

a crowdfund for disaster

So today I just had to talk about the lawsuit of Digital Homicide vs Jim Sterling. You’ll notice that I’m trying to remain as objective as possible, as I’ve given the Romine brothers the chance to respond to this article before publis...

 
 
 

the transformation of work

So I was re-listening the interview between Jim Sterling and Digital Homicide as I still think it’s hilarious, but it also got me thinking. Mainly about, are we really susceptible to copyright take downs when we make blog post, reviews, l...
