Lefty’s Soapbox: To Dearly Departed Game Friendships

Written by (@leftybrown) on May 8, 2013 in Opinion

In this data-driven, social-minded, inter-connected present; the definition of friendship is blurred. I’m old enough to have grown up before the internet permeated everything. Back then friendship was reserved solely for those that lived around the block, in the neighborhood, churches, and schools. Today, I have friends I’ve never met “in the flesh” so to… Read More »

Comments Off on Top Henchmen of This Generation

Everyone loves a good henchman. They’re great, disposable cannon fodder that serve as a warm-up to huge set pieces or boss battles. Mind you, these aren’t necessarily the throw-away bad guys that merely act as training dummies in early stages of a game, providing little to no challenge. I use the term “henchmen” to call… Read More »

Comments Off on Nerd Rage: Save and Quit

One of my first introductions to gaming as a child was with Super Mario Bros. for the NES. I would spend countless hours traveling the land, memorizing where the  pipes and secret blocks were, fighting off goombas, and trying to finish the game in one sitting. Why one sitting you ask? Super Mario Bros. didn’t have… Read More »

Comments Off on Fright Night Gaming: Left 4 Dead

One adjective that you can’t pin onto a game like Left 4 Dead is “complex.” It lacks that mechanical depth of the Halos and Modern Warfares of the gaming world. It’s also missing the narrative punch of Bioshock. However, the simplicity of the Left 4 Dead is its greatest strength. It strips away any wide… Read More »

Comments Off on Zombies, Zombies, Everywhere

Zombies have been around for quite some time. From the slow moving zombies from Raccoon City in the Resident Evil series, to the run-you-over infected in the Left 4 Dead franchise, zombies have evolved and become a mainstay in video game culture. The amount of games that involve Zombies in some fashion is growing all… Read More »

Comments Off on 10 Items and Powerups I Wish Existed

When video game characters like Mario, Zelda, and Master Chief all need help, they receive power-ups. This is great for video game characters, but what am I supposed to do when life’s struggles come my way? I sometimes wish that power-ups and items from all the video games I love could exist in real life…. Read More »

Comments Off on Five Games We Wish Were Movies

Let’s face it.  Thus far the various attempts to adapt our beloved video games into movies has been mostly one disaster after another.  Sure, every once in a while we get one that is at least decent but for the most part this cross-medium experiments typically result in films that are either so bad they’re… Read More »
