This week on WWE’s Monday Night Raw, it was revealed that the cover of WWE 2K14 would feature Dwayne “The Rock” Johnston. It was a fairly boring, yet predictable choice considering that Dwayne has been pushed in the WWE heavily over the past couple of years, despite only making a couple of appearances.

This is, probably, the hardest thing for me to write. Over the past month, prominent video game community member David “Knuckles Dawson” Dreger, has been missing. He terminated all of his online accounts and his website redirected to a scene from the movie “Dumb and Dumber.” Everyone hoped and prayed that David would be found… Read More »

When Microsoft announced their original DRM strategy for the Xbox One, I was one of that vocal “internet community” that was outraged. To me, it was an attempt by Microsoft to get rid of what few rights we consumers have. There’s been an active war against many consumers to try to limit what they can… Read More »

It’s been an interesting few weeks on this column. We’ve discussed everything from depression to E3 and back again. Why don’t we stick with the more recent theme of video games and toddler nonsense and discuss the ways in which my three year old is ridiculous (and also very clearly the perfect combination of my… Read More »

While, in the past, I’ve been somewhat critical of the Grand Theft Auto series for taking too much of a serious turn, I’m still extremely excited for the upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto V. Going into E3 I was hoping to see more from the game and, instead, we barely heard anything from Rockstar… Read More »

Comments Off

The Pikmin games have always been Nintendo’s very curious take on real time strategy. The player controls a character who has at their command an army of these little Pikmin creatures of various colors. The goal is simply to make use of the colored Pikmin’s special abilities to search an alien planet for food and… Read More »

Goichi Suda, known to many as Suda 51, has quickly become one of my favorite developers.

I’ve talked in the past about how I’m tentatively excited for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. While Assassin’s Creed III was, personally, very unimpressive I still hold out hope that the next installment will knock it out of the park. From what Ubisoft showed us this week, I’m beginning to feel somewhat more confident in… Read More »
