OK, I’ll Be Getting FINAL FANTASY XV

I may or may not also try Noctis cosplay.

Consoles Wars Aren’t Won But Endured

I’m too old for this shit.

NEW XBOX REVEALED: Xbox One, PLUS Steven Spielberg To Helm HALO

If you Google image search “Xbox One” you’ll still get the first Xbox. That’s funny.

Mortal Kombat Legacy 2 Trailer Makes “Get Over Here” Memorable Again

It does nothing to make me forget “Annihilation.”

My How The Game Has Changed

School is out for the summer so I sat down to do the same thing that I do every break: Play video games. One in particular that I’ve been playing for a long time is MapleStory. For those of you who don’t know, MapleStory is a MMORPG. (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Play Game) In the game […]

Sess-ion Over: Farewell, Adam Sessler

As the sun begins to set on my spring semester (actually I can’t tell because it’s cloudy and drizzling at the moment), I’ve been preparing myself to resume my blogging duties on a more regular basis. But in-depth discussions about the return of Brock Lesnar or what I think of Mass Effect 3 will have […]

Please Stick To The Rivers And Lakes You’re Used To: Fighting Games and “The Crossover”

Three years ago I would have been excited about this. Today, I’m kind of pissed. It’s no secret that I love fighting games, and I see nothing better than characters from different worlds dukeing it out. Nothing! That’s what attracts us to the world of sports, or movies, or comic books, or porn (I do […]

Overload: The Problem with Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

I’ve been a fan of the Assassin’s Creed franchise since we first joined Desmond and his buddies from the past Altair (and later Ezio) in the first installment of the game. The game made me feel like I was actually an assassin, stalking my prey until finally striking with might and leaving with speed and […]

Facecraft

If you have a Facebook like most of the population, then odds are you’ve tried a Facebook game or two. I don’t know a single person under the age of 30 that if I asked them, “Do you know what FarmVille is?” who wouldn’t answer, “yes.” It really is an incredible market. With Facebook credits out now, Facebook has […]

2012 In Video Games Part II: January

So, after much toiling over how to even attack the video gaming medium, I decided that I should do a post at the beginning of every month, and discuss the games going to be released that month (at least the big ones). Every now and then, an additional post will be created for a big […]

2012 in Video Games Part I: The PSVita

Wow. What a great fucking year for gaming! Starting this decade on the right foot, 2011 brought some incredible video games to the table that will surely join in the category of gaming legends. Instead of speaking about the past year, however, I’m more interested in looking ahead to 2012, and what classics it may […]

Move Along

Due to the fact that my right arm is a touch sore from overuse, (no not from that ya filthy minded fool) I’m going to put down my Wii Remote and speak what’s on my mind. Motion controls. Why exactly is the gaming industry going down this road now? Is it worth it? Haven’t we […]

The Man Who Laughs: Chai From “Shenmue”

I think it’s safe to assume we’ve all had a boogeyman that haunted us as kids. Whether human or inanimate objects, there’s always something that made everyone, even the toughest bullies on the playground, scared to death. You probably had a creepy toy a relative bought you. You knew an angry homeless man outside the […]

DisKinect: Why I’m Not Getting Xbox Kinect (Yet)

Microsoft has officially entered the motion gaming battle royale this week with the relase of Kinect For Xbox 360. All three gaming juggernauts — Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft — are now competing with motion gaming at their disposal. Although Nintendo started and pretty much dominated in its first year with the Nintendo Wii in 2006, […]

I Wanna Take You For A Ride

The mere fact that I am writing this post just means so much to me. It’s been announced months ago, but I just feel like sharing. Let’s get one thing straight here — I generally suck at fighting games. Unless we’re playing Dead or Alive 4 or WWE SmackDown vs. RAW, chances are my ass […]
