  • Borderlands 2: Pandora Revisited

    11 1

    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
  • Metal Gear Solid: Evolution

    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

    More
    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

    6

    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.

  • The Age of Video Games: Prometheus & Game Development

    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
  • Anime Expo 2012: Cosplay, Fan Art & Collectibles

    I thought I knew anime, but reading about Anime Expo 2012 made me realize I know nothing about anime. Although my attendance on the AX showfloor for a few hours garnered little more insight, I did develop an appreciation for how broad the anime universe... More
  • My (Belated) E3: Planetside 2, Samsung Cloud Gaming, Watch Dogs & Wrap Up

    I've finally caught up with my lack of E3 sleep, so am posting my last day experiences and wrap up. Better late than never, I hope. In case you haven't already seen footage of the demos I'll be writing about, or you simply want a different perspective, I'll fill you in on the sights and sounds of the show's finale.

    In retrospect, E3 was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Whether finishing officework in advance, coordinating schedules, prepping for meetings and blogging, nevermind trying to not be an absentee family man, I was burning the candle at both ends. But I survived considerable sleep deprivation to blog another day,

  • My E3: Borderlands 2, Tomb Raider & Resident Evil 6

    If the Electronic Entertainment Expo teaches anything it's patience. The kind of patience we learn from the Magic Kingdom. Indeed, E3 is a kind of magic kingdom where attendees wait in lines for more lines all in hopes of experiencing something wondrous. While I spent the majority of my first day on Tuesday in slow processionals, it did pay off from time to time.
