  • More than 1s and 0s, but far from being a 10

    Beneath the somewhat uninspired setting, mediocre dialogue, and generic cover-based third person shooter mechanics, Binary Domain actuall y has a rather stellar story at its heart. [I originally submitted this as a review, but since it doesn't seem... More
  • Why We Play Horror Games

    3
    I've been wondering about this for a while: Why do we enjoy horror games? What attracts us to the idea of being scared and possibly doing something we don't really want to do? To answer that, I examined a few articles about the history and psychology... More

    In what has become an increasingly hostile social media world, GIO remains a nice oasis of tranquility. That is not to say GIO hasn't been rocked by its own problems in the recent history of the site, but it nonetheless is like a white picket fence... More

    I'm not one to have a huge backlog of games. I suppose I can thank my financial situation for that. I play games on a budget, and cannot afford every new game that's released that I want to play. I have to be very selective with what I purchase... More
  • WGWC #3 - Digital, The Final Frontier (First Draft)

    3
    Here’s my third installment of the WGWC. For this topic, I decided to be a little different and talk about digital distribution instead of completionism of a game. This was an easy topic to pick, mainly because my dad talks about this subject a... More
