  • These Bros Ain't Loyal - Franchise Loyalty in Gaming

    6 2

    Resident Evil 6, for all intents and purposes, was not the greatest game of all time. It did not mop up many game of the year titles and received mixed reviews. Giantbomb awarded it a 2/5 and Gamespot a 4.5/10, this was combined with User Reviews on Metacritic that tore the game to shreds to bring about the consensus that this was a less than stellar addition to the Resident Evil franchise. Despite all of the word of mouth, the harsh critics, and those who despised the game entirely; it went on to become one of the top selling Capcom games of all time, just under a million shy of it's predecessor Resident Evil 5. It also boasted the highest initial shipment of a Capcom game, with 4.5 million units shipped worldwide with its release.

    Being a glutton for punishment, I decided to delve back into the Dark Souls series...quickly found out that I am a bit rusty. At least it provides some enjoyment. I prefer the montage format in Let's Plays, so omitted is the countless runs I did trying... More

    Greetings Gameinformer, it has been close to a year since the last time I have posted. You all look so different...except you mojomonkey12 . Starting to think you have that Patrick Stewart “never aging” trend going. In 2012, I had written... More

    I rarely delve into the Free to Play market, but it turns out it's the prime place to go for a few Let's Plays. Renaissance Heroes is a recent addition to Steam that plays like Unreal Tournament, with a different look. It was surprisingly enjoyable... More
  • A Beautiful Lie

    6 1

    Cinematic trailers have become more impressive with each generation of consoles, and despite my inability to mimic their unique feeling in-game, it is hard to be too bitter about it. The sole purpose of a cinematic trailer is to reel the viewer in while giving an "idea" of what the game will offer, and stands as physical evidence of the hard work and dedication going into the development of the title on all fronts. Sure, I may not be able to recreate an archer quite as cool as the one in the trailer, but that is perfectly alright if the overall quality reflects what went into making him so awesome in the first place. For now, I will simply bask in the beauty and professionalism put into these amazing teasers of what is to come...even if they turn out to be a lie.

    There have been a substantial amount of cinematic trailers lately, each drawing my attention toward a different game. The Elder Scrolls Online showcased a particularly acrobatic archer, throwing his sword in the air to disperse three soldiers before catching... More

    I rarely venture into the Let's Play territory but thought I would give it a try. It's a much more laid back tone compared to the video reviews I usually do, and requires much less effort in throwing them together. Be advised...due to the sudden... More
