    Josh Keyes over at Trading Card Games made a list of 42 celebrity look-alikes for the game’s colorful cast of Minions. A lot of these resemblances are pretty awesome, and while the entire list is solid (in my opinion, anyway), I do have a few qualms... More
  • Should Old Games Retire?

    A while back I wrote a blog about how Apple's update basically broke one of the iphone's flagship releases, Monster Hunter. Unfortunately, it doesn't look good; Capcom stated themselves that they have no interest in releasing a fix for this... More

  • The Fear Of Sausage-Fests

    Let's get this out of the way - I'm not opposed to female heroes in video games, nor am I against gays. Contrary, women have been some of my favorite video game protagonists for over a decade - with legends such as Samus, Lara Croft, Jill Valentine... More

    "If Wil Wheaton gets royalties on a game before myself or any of the others who spent years (not weeks) working on it, the system is broken." When Alex Hutchinson wrote this on Twitter , he meant it as a rebuke of the recent threat by voice... More
  • Even More Glee With The PS4 Screenshot Function (Destiny Edition!)

    I've made no secret of my love for the PS4 screenshot function (and my further love for it ), and today I was thinking about some of the more recent screenshots I've taken, namely of Destiny. I know, you must be shocked. I think Destiny is one... More
  • "A Gamers View" 9/25/15 - What makes a reboot successful?

    **** What causes a success in a failed creation? The intricate adjustments, that transform a looked down upon object into a stunning reworked masterpiece? What does it take for a creator to destroy their entire product, obliterating every piece, then... More
  • Community Writing Challenge: For Love Of All Things Mundane...

    1 1
    Details, details, details. Part of what has always made video games so fun is the details, the little stuff that in most cases, you might easily overlook. What would the 8-bit glory days of Nintendo have been without hidden areas, coin heaven, the tunnel... More
  • Dead or Alive 5 Final Round

    I just played Dead or Alive 5 Final Round, and it was a good game. I liked playing through the story mode. Kasumi has great speed and powerful kicks. Ayane has a variety of high kicks that cause lots of damage. Kokoro has a good mixture of low and high... More
