It may come as a surprise to some that the Skylanders franchise brings more money to the Activision coffers than the popular shooter Call of Duty. So it should come as little surprise that the newest installment, Skylanders Trap Team, should arrive in time for the holidays. Past entries in the series were great examples… Read More »

Comments Off on Destiny Updates; Weapon Tweaks, and No More Treasure Cave

Bungie has just updated and post their first big patch fix for their shared-world shooter Destiny. Besides the usual patch notes of gameplay tweaks, such as weapon balances and mission difficulty, the biggest change (and to many gamer’s dismay) is Bungie’s decision to alter the cultural phenomenon “Treasure Cave” location. “The social experience of a cave farming… Read More »

Comments Off on The Case For the Vita: My Little Indie Machine

Last year, I had a JRPG itch. Bad. You know, that craving where every few years or so you have this uncontrollable urge to play a turn based Japanese role playing game? With its ever dramatic, esoteric story lines, nonsensical battle mechanics, and ones that require you grind your characters like crazy? (I might be… Read More »

Let me begin by saying what most studies, polls, sales, and common sense has shown: Women and girls like gaming too. They like all sorts of games from casual to traditional, from Candy Crush Saga to Battlefield 4. Developers know this and many first-person shooter video games now include female characters for gamers to play… Read More »

Comments Off on You Should Have Played This: Kingpin

Kingpin: Life of Crime is a a bit of an anachronism in shooters. Elements in it seem shockingly modern, and yet so much of the game dates it to that time of Half-Life, Doom, Quake, and everything else that wasn’t Call of Duty. It’s a cool experience, and still holds up well enough to go… Read More »

Comments Off on How Dead Island Helped Deep Silver Become “Better” Than EA, Activision & Ubisoft

In speaking with Game Informer, Deep Silver’s COO, Geoff Mulligan, had some choice words about triple-A development. “People say, ‘Oh, you acquired Volition and Metro, you’re going to be a triple-A publisher. What separates us from a triple-A publisher is that I don’t really have a desire to be a triple-A publisher. I actually think… Read More »

Hey guys, a new Starcraft game is coming out! So let’s talk about a space RTS from 2002. Homeworld was one of the last great franchises from Sierra before it was closed and absorbed into the heaping monolith that is now Activision, and developed by Relic (who have a…storied career of being attached to closed… Read More »
