When it comes to game frustrations, we all have them. But when it comes to shoddy gameplay mechanics or outright lazy/outdated storytelling, there is quite a lot of room for improvement. This is especially true when it comes to handheld games. Many games...

Battlefield vs. Call of Duty
on Jul 27, 2011 at 05:24 PM
Yesterday I posted a blog mainly about paying $15 for map packs, but at the end I went off on a tangent and started talking about Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3. I said I was personaly on the Modern Warfare side. I got some great feedback about the...
How to Fix Strategy Games
on Jul 27, 2011 at 03:40 PM
Recently GI ran an article from some bigwig over at 2K Games who called strategy games “not contemporary.” The irony that 2K published the one of the biggest strategy releases of the past few years, Civilization V , was lost on no one. Maybe...

on Jul 27, 2011 at 11:51 AM

Video Game Cross-Overs-Good Idea or Doomed to be Crap (except for fighters, that is)?
Oni no Tenshi
on Jul 27, 2011 at 12:26 AM
The first time I had ever heard of a "crossover game" was when I was back in school and the first SNK VS Capcom was released. Of course, from there, the majority of "crossover games" seem to be fighting games (ie: Smash Brothers, Marvel...
Amplitude: How Annette Gonzalez is making me buy a PS2 game
on Jul 26, 2011 at 11:34 PM
For those who don't know, Annette Gonzalez is leaving Gameinformer. This is really sad for all of the blogging community, because she was so involved with all of us, especially in Blog Herding. The fact that she took the time to read and comment on...
Should single-player-only games be cheaper?
on Jul 26, 2011 at 11:03 PM
That's certainly one way to look at why some recent games have tanked, though I'm not sure it's the only reason. I've been playing the well-reviewed recent game, Shadows of the Damned , and think it's actually a pretty good game. However...
