    Writing block, a lack of inspiration whatever you call it…I’ve been in a slump. So, what better way to get my motivation back than to challenge myself to writing 31 posts in 31 days? Maybe it’s the post-grad haze of not knowing what... More
  • Guess that Game (August 2017)...

    Hey there Game Informer, it's August so that means it's time for another Guess that Game. Last month's entry seemed to stump a few people but maybe this month will be different. Allow me to welcome you to Guess that Game, a monthly feature... More
  • Video Games That Have Been Made Into Slots

    Last year, legislation was passed in both New Jersey and Nevada to allow casinos to introduce skill based games into their establishments. The move, which is expected to draw more millennials through the doors, should eventually mean we see console video... More

    WELCOME TO ANOTHER DO GAMERS KNOW THEIR COVER ART! SLIGHT ALTERATIONS: READ BELOW As I stated last post, it's been nearly a year since I began to post this game. It's been a great way to ensure that I make at least 2 posts a month and I have enjoyed... More
  • The Top 5 Series of Nostalgia, from a Late-to-the-Gamer

    I actually didn't play many videogames until I was around 10 years old, so my nostalgia was never focused on franchises so much as singular games. That being said, let's start! 5. Resident Evil 4 This game scared me to my core as a kid. I thought... More
  • Abstract Review - Destiny 2 Beta

    Destiny was one of my favorite games of 2015. I didn't like it at launch because of how restricted it felt and DLC being overpriced for what it was. My sister got the game for Christmas with all the DLC and it was great. I played for two years and... More
  • Is Blaming Someone's Enjoyment on Nostalgia a Fair Criticism?

  • The Best Games Period - Episode 71 - Angry Birds

    In 2009 casual gaming was gaining steam. Flash games were all the rage, mobile was taking off, and Zynga was the new hotness with Farmville dominating Facebook. Then, as the year was drawing to a close, a small development team in Finland with 51 games... More
  • Do video game characters have souls?

    It's rather funny when we make extreme choices like blowing up Fallout 3's Megaton and observing the consequences like some kind of god. When we're doing destroying the world, it's as easy as reloading a save to erase the choices you made... More
  • PlayStation At E3: Trailers, Trailers And More Trailers

    We spend all year looking forward to it, then in 3 short days the Electronic Entertainment Expo is over. After months spent anticipating new announcements and speculating the likelihood of each rumor, the days following E3 can feel anti-climactic. But... More
  • Tales of Berseria from a Guy who was Done with Tales of Games

    Tales of Berseria from a Guy who was Done with Tales of Games Tales of is a series full of way more misses than hits for me. I love a couple of them to death. But the vast majority are filled to the brim with anime tropes and poor story telling. And recent... More
