  • (Don't) Make it Stop! When Games are Exceptionally Immersive

    12

    I'm playing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow today, and I keep thinking, "I don't want this to end." Though I'm only two levels into the second chapter, I've found myself captivated by this game. The environments are fascinating, the music is exhilarating, the narrative is mesmerising, the scrolls are satisfying to read, the book-style menu is interesting and the combat is invigorating (once you get the hang of it.) Despite the religious fantasy (that doesn't exactly line-up with Biblical doctrine), this game makes me feel good. I'm really enjoying the story of this man's quest to defeat evil and be reunited with his deceased wife.

  • Keeping a Safe Distance from Games with Creation Tools

    As far back as I can remember, I've enjoyed creating things. The earliest records of this are drawings that my parents still have from my early elementary years (I'm pretty sure they're all monsters.) Instead of doing homework, I spent most... More

    Rather than write a review for Call of Duty: Black Ops, I decided to write a blog about my favorite thing from the game... the Easter Eggs! (and my thoughts on Easter Eggs in general.)

PLEASE, if you want us to share your team on episode 9 (which will be available on Monday, November 15, by the way), then please comment below or email us at robotinthecorner@gmail.com. Thanks! :)
