  • 14/31 - The New Xavier and Magneto: Wolverine and Cyclops in the New Era of X-Men

    The last two blogs I've written about Marvel have largely been negative, denouncing the current state of their animation division and complaining about the over-saturation of event comics over the last few years. However, deep down I love Marvel Comics... More
  • A Journey LotR Fans Can Be Proud of (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey review)

    2 1
    I absolutely loved the Lord of the Rings; the books, the movies, and even the games. It's a journey of huge proportions that no one has ever really come close to reaching since Tolkien. You could say that there are fantasies out there that ARE on... More
  • Grand Theft Auto and the Sandbox of Violence

    7 1
    Okay, so I know I'm going to be in the minority here. Probably a very small minority. And I fully expect to catch a ton of flak for this—especially in light of a highly-anticipated new installment in the series arriving soon—but I feel... More
  • Single-Player & Other Custom Game Modes In League Of Legends

    Last time I wrote a blog about the Coop vs AI game mode in League Of Legends, which is something I've played a lot over the past 1.5 years and I've seen how it has changed from something gathering dust in a dark corner to something people play... More
  • The Significance of "The Walking Dead" Winning a GOTY Award

    3 1
    I personally don't enjoy watching the VGAs on the Spike TV channel. The activities and dialogue that pervade the event are mostly immature and corny, so I'd rather avoid the whole thing rather than endure it to watch the awesome trailers and teasers... More
  • Game of Thrones - an (almost) completely missed opportunity

    The recent Dragon Age and Witcher games have shown there is huge interest in darker and more mature tales of fantasy in the video game realm. It seems only fitting then that the megahit fantasy book series, George R.R. Martin's "A Tale of Ice... More
  • ZombiU is about The Prepper.


    Glasses discusses how the focus of ZombiU's story is The Prepper, not the survivors you play as (Ending spoilers ahead) .

  • Villains and How They Saved Halo

    *edit: Pictures now included* Halo 4 is a remarkable experience, one that I've loved every second of. Upon acquiring Halo 4, I figured that I would be drawn into the Multiplayer, and experience the Campaign later. In fact, quite the opposite happened... More
  • A Few Lingering Questions

    While a certain degree of suspension of disbelief is needed when playing games or consuming other forms of media, sometimes I find myself left with more questions than answers after finishing a game. To be fair to most developers I'm talking about... More
  • The Walking Dead: Episode 5 Review

    Adventure games haven't always received a great quality-to-sales ratio. Call of Duty may be guaranteed millions of units will ship, but the adventure genre has seen too many unsung gems slip through the cracks. The golden age of the Lucas Arts adventure... More
  • Great Women in Games: Part 2 of 5

    Part 2 of the Great Women in Games series highlights an oft-ignored Legend of Zelda character.

  • Does Marketing and Art Really Effect Game Sales?

    I saw this on facebook earlier and for some reason I thought of the debate that and fiasco surrounding the BioShock Infinite box art. But at the same time how Ken Levine also stated that his point in sticking with that art work was to bring in fans of... More
