Its a tale of two games this week. I had the opportunity to check out two very different games over the last few weeks: one casual and one deep. One was basically finished, and the other in the midst of development. I’m excited for both games for completely different reasons. This is exactly why I… Read More »

With each passing Blizzcon I attend, the Anaheim Convention Center feels more and more like my gaming Mecca.

Kickstarter has been in the news quite a bit over the last few years. Whether it is the questionable need for a Kickstarter for a well-known game like Shenmue III, the runaway success of Kickstarters like the Pebble Time, or the heartwarming story of every child of the 80’s resurrecting Reading Rainbow, Kickstarter appeals to… Read More »

There has been a whole slew of survival-horror games that have come out in the past year. The emerging genre has seen several successes such as the ubiquitous Day-Z or the feverishly-running-around-naked-on-an-island-looking-for-shelter-simulator Rust. These games have been generally PC-centric in nature, and we haven’t really seen this style of game on current consoles.

Right up front, I would like to state that I have put in a staggering 500 hours into Destiny. I haven’t played a game for this long since my youth (looking at you, Final Fantasy Tactics) and Destiny has really cut into the small time I have that is available to play other games. I’m… Read More »

2014 was one of the weirdest years in gaming for me. While the word “gamer” has taken on a whole new meaning in the larger picture of pop culture and society in all the wrong ways, there hasn’t a better time to be a person who happens to enjoy games.  Titanfall The game that made… Read More »
