  • Half-Life: Opposing Force (Chapter 12: Worlds Collide And Conclusion)…

    3 1
    Had a wonderful day at the beach, so I kind of got a late start on my weekly Half-Life play date. And then when I finally got the time to play, I had a problem with Steam and saving the in-game screenshots. I somehow managed to lose them all (don't... More
  • 365/365 Day 249: Distrust: Why I Don't Want To Buy Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

    2
    I once considered Gearbox one of my favorite game developers. They created Half-Life: Opposing Force, the phenomenal add-on for the pioneer first-person shooter. They created Borderlands, a fun little romp that led into the fantastic follow-up Borderlands... More
  • I Don’t Normally Play Sports Games, But When I Do…

    3 1
    Sports games. I don't play them (much). And I blog about them almost as often, which is not very. In fact, the only blog I can remember directly related to sports games was one questioning why sports games weren't more popular among gamers. But... More
  • 365/365 Day 248: Top Seven Safe Havens

    1
    Take a deep breath...and exhale. You've made it. You've escaped the imminent danger...for now, at least. The monsters can't reach you anymore, and now you've got time to heal up and plan your next move. Of course, the relief won't... More
  • E-Pals: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes/The Phantom Pain/Kiefer Sutherland as Big Boss

    3
    My friend Karl and I came up with the idea for E-Pals a couple of months ago. What we're doing is taking a topic and e-mailing each other about it and then sharing those e-mails with you! The reader! Without further ado, here's the first edition... More
  • 12 year old' s perspectives and the trolling it initiates...

    1
    Have you ever really wondered how someone else's creative content can drive so much hate? Probably not, and that is okay. I ask this mainly in reaction to the famed Pew Di Pie's decision to end comments on his channels 'permanently'. I... More
  • Feminist Friday: Anita Sarkeesian

    3 1
    Since I am going to be posting this on my own website and Gameinformer, I have prepared myself for the possible worst. This is a seriously unpopular topic in the “gamer” community. Every Friday on my infant blog I highlight a woman who inspires... More

    *THIS ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED AT Hardcore Casual Gamer * This entry of Untapped Potential will examine the time between Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, when Link and Tetra’s crew of pirates sailed the endless seas of the Adult timeline... More
  • Restarting A Machine For Pigs

    2
    Amnesia: The Dark Descent is an unforgettable game-it's one of the notorious survival horror games in recent years to really scare the hell out of players. It had a great atmosphere, a chilling story, fun mechanics (opening doors, drawers or picking... More
  • Shameless self promotion! Thanks for the support!!

    It has been awhile since my last blog, but that time has not been wasted in vain. I have experienced almost ten months of uplifting and spirit crushing gaming experiences. November 2013 brought on the newest generation of consoles, which has proven to... More
  • Up The Ante With This Virtual Straight…

    1 1
    I was admiring the release dates for a few upcoming titles I'm pretty excited about when I noticed a sequential pattern in the games. If we were playing Poker I think I'd have a straight with - Halo 5, Uncharted 4, Little Big Planet 3, Forza Horizon... More
  • 365/365 Day 247: Why I'm Hesitant About Destiny

    3
    Today, first-person video games fit many, many different modes. Sometimes, they're simply about solving puzzles, or playing through a story. Even when we classify a game as a "first-person shooter", it's still a bit awkward to lump them... More
