  • 52/52 Week 20- What We're NOT Going to See at E3

    I love this time of year. In the month leading up to E3, speculation is widespread. Everyone casts their lot as to what's going to appear at the gamer supershow. With two newcomers to the press conference scene, Square Enix and Bethesda, there appears... More
  • Six Last-Gen Games That Should Get Remasters/Remakes

    I know, I know. This generation is in a weird situation where, since there is no backwards compatibility, developers are making up for it by subsidizing the development of a remaster of one of their standout titles from the previous generation or, in... More
  • Learning To Accept Change By Way Of Animal Crossing: New Leaf

    Do you see that glorious sight above? That's my long-earned home (and surrounding grounds) in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. In the first 365 days I owned the game, I only ever missed one, and that was because I was terribly ill. In that calendar year... More
  • Poor Ports: A Generational Gap

    For the first time in a long time I have stopped playing a game after a few hours into the campaign. That game is Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Before you grab your pitchfork, allow me to explain. I purchased this game as a gift for my brother after... More
  • Community Writing Challenge - The Very Best of Co-operative Games

    This the first thing I've written... Well, probably this year. And, seeing as it's been six plus months, my writing may reflect that rustiness. I've wanted to respond to the new "Community Writing Challenges" for a while now, but... More

  • My First Kickstarter

    I've seen several cool projects on Kickstarter, but have never been compelled to actually fund any of them. The other day one of my friends had posted in a forum I frequent about a game on Kickstarter called Little Devil Inside . So I checked it out... More
  • Community Writing Challenge: My Epitome Of Co-Op Greatness

    As some of you may know, I was late to get on the last gen bandwagon. I didn't get my PS3 until January of 2010, and only then because I couldn't not play Little Big Planet any longer. I bought the game of the year edition of it before I ever... More
  • Broken Age PS4 Review: An Incomplete Picture.

    How often do you find yourself doing something, simply because it’s what is expected of you? Your parents, your friends, or society expect you to act or participate in something that doesn’t ring true with who you are, yet you do it simply... More
  • The Urban Legend Of Polybius

    Like any good urban legend, I can't even tell you when I first heard about Polybius. I grew up in the Portland (Oregon) area, and loved video games my whole life, yet I know I didn't hear about it until well into my adulthood. I want to say it... More
  • Shooters Reloaded

    First person shooter games can be victims of their own success, with franchise titles sticking close to formula and others hoping to mimic their good fortune. There's no question the formula is addicting, having earned my allegiance for several generations... More
  • Game of Thrones Season 5 Impressions

    Spoiler Warning: Being an impression of the first five episodes, you can safely bet there are spoilers a plenty. Now in its fifth season, Game of Thrones has firmly placed itself as one of the must watch shows of the past few years. Even in its weakest... More
