  • Community Writing Challenge: Satisfy Your Wanderlust

    2
    In the days when I started gaming, traveling from one point to another was a fairly limited and straight forward affair. In a world of side-scrollers and isometric planes, your options tended to be walk, run, or in the case of Sonic the Hedgehog, roll... More
  • A Promotion Too Good To Ignore

    5
    When I pre-order a game I typically prefer to do so via my local GameStop. The staff is fantastic, and the location is close enough that if I had to ride my bike, I could still get there in a reasonable amount of time. I'm not usually swayed by retailer... More
  • Is the Hype Train Killing Our Love for Games?

    Hello, GI community. It's been a long time since my last post/review (about two years, to be more exact). As I was thinking of what I should write about to start my way back on this site, this topic felt very relevant, seeing as how I used to do this... More

    3
    After saving a lot of money in order to buy this system, it was in 2008 when my brother and I finally got our hands on it. We played a lot but he quit gaming leaving plenty of room for me to play. My favorite game was first released for the system, most... More
  • My Top 10 Games of 2015

    What a year 2015 was! I may be a tad bit late getting my list together, but there were just too many incredible games to sort through. I had to make some tough omissions (sorry Her Story), but in the end, I'm pretty happy with my list, and I'm... More

    Last September, what can be presumed to be the last Metal Gear game to ever be made arrived on store shelves, concluding the story of a series 28 years in the making. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain differed from all of its predecessors though, in... More
  • Review: The Room Series and It's Lovely Puzzles

    2
    This may seem a bit odd for a review as I've noticed "hardcore" gamers typically don't view iPhone and Android games as, well, games. However, despite a market full of free to play games and their thousands of clones, phone games are... More
  • Where Is My Excitement For Far Cry Primal?

    3
    The Far Cry series is one of my favorites in all of gaming (with Far Cry 3 among my favorite games of all time), but when Far Cry Primal was announced last year, I found myself curiously cold towards it. One of the trademarks of the series is the varied... More
  • Clouds and Flowers: The Big Question of How Video Games Can Play as Art

    I wrote this piece for an contemporary art history class, so it's fairly long; however the question of whether or not games are art isn't a small topic. From the silver screen to the white walls of a gallery, video games are moving out of the... More
