  • Half-Life!

    Oh my friggin' God. Over half of my life (that wasn't intended in the slightest, but it is coincidentally true) has been spent hating on this game. I STARTED to play it over and over again for 7 years not liking it. Then, I saw some gameplay for... More
  • Star Trek and What it's Done for You

    Star Trek has to be the best show ever made. Mind you, I'm not a die-hard trekkie that freaks out when ever William Shatner is in the vacinity, or I find a thirty dollar (cheap) prop from the show online. I just enjoy watching this show and I enjoy... More
  • Vampire: the story of Malkev (chapter 3)

    Chapter 3: A night to remember. By J.K.Ramswick Two months had gone by, when Brian asked me to deliver a package to a town called Dundee. It wasn’t uncommon to deliver packages to other towns, so I didn’t question it, but if I knew than what... More
  • The Rise (and Fall) of music games for hardcore gamers.

    In '04 or '05, I think, Guitar Hero released for the PS2 to warm reviews and high sales, catapulting music games out of arcades and onto home consoles. Now by no means was GH the first successful music game, but it was the game that started the... More
  • What will gaming's old men be like? + the future of the game industry

    I want to touch on a topic that I think no one has really thought about: What will happen with old gamers? Gaming is a relatively new form of entertainment, compared to theatre, which goes back hundreds of years, and in modern days applied itself to television... More
  • You Know You’re an Old Video Gamer When…

    One of the things that sucks about getting old is you don’t always recognize it’s happening. And I’ve found this is especially true with gamers. Perhaps it’s the fact that since we traditionally associate video games with being... More
  • Know Thy MW2 Enemy (or How I Get Into the Mind of an 11 Year Old) - Part Deux

    "If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles." - Sun Tzu In Know Thy Enemy - Part 1 , I entered the mind of a middle schooler in order to gain an edge when facing them in CoD4: MW2. This exercise... More
  • Cooperation is a Virtue

    One of the buzzwords for gaming nowadays is "co-op" multiplayer, whether it's 2 players in a room or (much more commonly) online. Sometimes it's 2-player co-op, sometimes 4 (and sometimes even 3!). It almost seems like a game has to... More
  • Zero: A Horribly Overlooked Video Game Villain

    There are superstars in the game villain space (recent inductions to the villain Hall of Fame: Andrew Ryan, GlaDOS, The Origami Killer, and Hidetaka Miyazaki), but then there are some solid-yet-unknown ones. Zero (also known as 0), hailing from the Kirby... More
  • Who's Your Daddy...

    To all the Dads out there, Happy Fathers Day! Granted, by the time you read this, Father’s Day will be over or nearly over, so hopefully you had a great one. Mine was okay; I did everything I wanted to – nothing! Actually, my son said I could... More
  • Walk and chew gum at the same time

    Some people can multi-task while others have a hard time doing that. Then there are some of us that are fine at multi-tasking but don't have the ability to spread their interest around multiple "fun" activities at the same time. For me,... More
  • The Sweet Sweet Review of The Hills Have Eyes 2 (it's the 1985 version and yet it still blows)

    I know this picture says horror classics, it's lieing. Perhaps the original is a classic, this one is actually worse than the sequel of the remake done a few years back. Normally I'm all about originals, they have way more character than the remake... More
