Imagining No Man’s Sky Language System in its Own Game
on Sep 22, 2016 at 07:16 PM
There are a lot of things to be said about No Man’s Sky. But when I was talking with a friend about the game, we realized just how cool the language system was from a game design standpoint. One thing led to the next and we came up with a great...
When does it end?
on Sep 22, 2016 at 05:29 PM
2016 is a year that can only be summed up by one major sentiment F' white people, but men and police in particular. Day after day on social media, in the news media, or just people you run into on the street, if you are white you are wrong. If you...
XCOM GIO Episode 3: The Rise of Mojo
Brian Seavey (Noobtubin8er)
on Sep 22, 2016 at 02:08 AM
XCOM GIO is the brain-child of playing XCOM using the friends I have made here at GameInformer Online as the soldiers. I wanted to add a story to the missions, so I did. It became a fun blog series that fizzled out as I got busy with life. This is the...
Pitching Ideas: Vendetta's Bane and How I Want it
on Sep 21, 2016 at 11:39 AM
Remember that CWC where you had to write and post your idea for a game? Well, I made a response to that called Vendetta's Bane and it has been an age old idea I had for a long time. I want to describe how the game will be in my mind. I've been...
Community Writing Challenge - Seeking Perfection
Jolt the Cynic
on Sep 21, 2016 at 07:53 AM
Perfect. It’s a tricky word. Nothing is truly perfect, in my opinion. Even though games get a perfect rating every now and again, a truly perfect game doesn’t exist. There are several that come pretty close, but there’s always something...
Community Writing Challenge: A Few Tweaks for the Perfect Ending
on Sep 20, 2016 at 10:24 PM
I have a very complicated relationship with endings – they rarely leave me feeling 100% content although I can’t think of a game whose ending I completely hated. So instead of tackling some major changes to a games story, I just want to make...
Opinion: I am excited for BOTH CoD games.
on Sep 20, 2016 at 08:06 PM
The schism among Call of Duty players this year is ridiculous. It seems like the only game people are talking about is the remaster and I certainly understand everyone's love for the MW series, but Infinite Warfare looks fun to me too. The thing that...
Sympathy for Kojima: Overdone?
on Sep 20, 2016 at 06:41 PM
Shortly before the launch of Metal Gear Solid V, the gaming public started to receive hints of turmoil brewing within Konami. Despite a history of much-loved games dating back to the original NES and earlier, the new word on the street was that Konami...
Until Dawn, The Blob (1988), and 'Protagonist Potential'
on Sep 20, 2016 at 03:55 PM
Horror’s greatest strength is its ability to circumvent conventional storytelling. That may seem an odd statement – “rules” (e.g. you ***, and you die) and archetypes (virgin/jock/pothead/etc.) often dominate the genre –...
Top 10 Boss Battle Themes
on Sep 19, 2016 at 10:21 PM
As you confront the large beast or being that stands in your way from you moving on to your destination; you begin attacking the being with all your might, at the same time you hear the chanting chorus in the background, the strings of instruments vibrating...
Community Writing Challenge: A Change of Story, A Change of Pace
on Sep 19, 2016 at 09:08 PM
Most games are fixed with their stories from the moment of production, with some standing up to be worthwhile, while others fall from grace with a simple turn of events. Video games have the power to immerse the player into a story that will only unfold...
My Thoughts on Resident Evil 7
on Sep 19, 2016 at 05:49 PM
After playing the demo and watching multiple trailers, I'm a bit sceptical about it. Although, it's great to find a new game leading to the horror roots, but not the right roots. All of you guys out there who are loving this game's trailers...
