  • Grand Theft Auto: Evolution

    The Grand Theft Auto franchise is many things to many people, but the one thing most can agree on is that Rockstar Games' gangland action titles are loud, bloody and audacious video games that have defined the medium and redefined entertainment. The... More

    The Borderlands series is known for the huge variety of guns and gunplay options available to fans of Gearbox Software's creation. Considering the breadth of the shooter genre, it's telling how such an emphasis is relatively rare. In fact, it... More

    The Extra Life gaming marathon was this past Saturday and here I'll chronicle how my virtual day was spent. But first, Extra Life has announced that participants' pages will be kept up until mid-December so there's still time to contribute... More

    I began playing Dishonored yesterday and spent an hour and a half in game, but what consumed most of my time was not what you might expect. Unless, that is, you know me pretty well, and my penchant for sometimes macabre pursuits (as in, here ). But to... More
  • Borderlands 2: Pandora Revisited

    The original Borderlands was a much beloved first person shooter/role playing game hybrid. I enjoyed it, but was not as enamored as many others were. A fun co-op game, the decent solo experience nonetheless did not compel me to stick with it. So it was with some ambivalence that I approached the E3 demo for Gearbox Software's sequel. More

    The Fallout video game series has a long history, though most gamers such as myself are likely only familiar with the current generation titles. In fact, despite only having the two most recent versions, publisher Bethesda Softworks' Fallout 3 and... More

    It's difficult to play a video game without being reminded of another title one has played before. Whether they share a genre, theme, gameplay, presentation or other element, they might draw inspiration from the same sources or inspire us in similar... More

    In this second installment of my new Evolution series, I tried my hand at three Metal Gear Solid titles spanning three generations of video game consoles. And as expected, I proved completely inept at stealth gameplay. Still, it's testament to the... More
  • The Elder Scrolls: Evolution

    Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls series is a fantasy role playing adventure renowned for both its detail and scope. The dedication necessary to build such a world requires years of careful craftsmanship. That helps explain why the past few titles each... More
  • The Other Mass Effect Ending: The Start of Something Big

    More
    Let's talk about the Mass Effect ending. (Dramatic pause for collective groan.) No, no, not that one. I finished Mass Effect 2 not that long ago and it surprised me. Why? Because unlike the vast majority of fans, I thought the sequel was far inferior... More
  • Bruce Payne 2-1/2: Dizzy Stupor Heroes

    I acquired Max Payne 3 and LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes about the same time because they both appeal to my sense of childhood wonder and unmitigated bloodlust, or because the two games had a similar release window. In any event, they are so similar that a smashup phlog was a natural, or at least inevitable given how lazy and ambivalent I've become.

    You might be hard pressed to find a link between Prometheus and game development, however, watching Ridley Scott's film I had an unusual perspective that also raised questions about our interactive medium. I'll begin by analyzing the movie, including... More
