Life after Vita

111d ago ... I really want another handheld from Sony – from the looks of things, I’m in the minority (a very small minority at that). The dedicated gaming handheld space has taken quite a step plunge since their lofty heights since the last generation. The culprit is most likely the growing handheld and tablet market. Nintendo seems fine despite all this thanks to their software lineup and the variety of p...

Hot Topic

113d ago ... This is a re-post from a blog I wrote for 11x2, but I think you may find it useful! -Cat ___________________ I struggled with this. What would be the most truly cringe-worthy title for this blog? I hope you're satisfied. There have been a few earnest inquiries about submissions and their heat lately, so I wanted to cover a few things. First, how does the heat algorithm work: a. uniq...

Video Calling on the PS4. Is it coming soon?

115d ago ... A new show called "Powers" just launched today. Fans of the comic book were excited to hear that Sony had teamed up to publish the show, and members of Playstation Plus were excited to hear that they would be receiving the entire season free. Excited by this show and the hype around the comic series I hop on my PS4 this morning and watched the first three episodes, sadly I have to wait weekly t...

Hotline Miami 2 | Everything you need to know

115d ago ... When Hotline Miami launched back in 2012 it shocked the market with it’s stylish execution of fast paced top down action, trippy music, and an engaging plot. The talented team at Dennaton Games is at it again for this year’s release of Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. As the final game in the series, hopes are high for Dennaton to deliver on another exceptionally bloody adventure. So, let’s take...

Illbleed: A Forgotten Classic with a Forgotten Spirit for Game Development

116d ago ... Recently I've been revisiting the classics of the survival horror genre, which is only now returning to its roots after over a decade of misrepresentation. Having played all the Silent Hill's and Resident Evil's countless times, I sought out some of the obscurities of the genre, and that leads us to Illbleed, an anomaly within an anomalous genre. There really is nothing like this game, it both...

The GDC Has Gone Full Feminist And Can't Be Taken Seriously

117d ago ... It's time, once again, for another one of "those" blogs. A blog in which I share how ideology, -ists, and -isms, are digging their way into the gaming industry the way a Ceti Eel burrowed into Chekov's ear in Star Trek the Movie 2: The Wrath of Khan, eventually wrapping itself around his cerebral cortex and making him completely vulnerable to outside suggestion all while causing immense pain....

What The Order 1886 Got Right

117d ago ... I played The Order: 1886 and I like it. It’s not a crime, well, maybe on the internet, but not in the real world. I recently wrote a blog about story in games and as soon as I wrap it up, I find myself playing The Order. All criticisms aside, this game does a lot of things right when it comes to storytelling technique in games. You may not like the story itself or the ending but I do think that...

The Sims 4 | History is Repeating Itself...Again

117d ago ... It comes as no surprise that video game developers often form a pattern when it comes to an extensive franchise under their sleeve. Activision likes to release a new Call of Duty installment every year, Rockstar Games likes to push boundaries and parody modern culture in Grand Theft Auto, Volition likes to make each Saints Row installment more and more over the top and Electronic Arts likes to...

My Impressions of Hatred and the Fiasco Surrounding It

118d ago ... Hatred. A strong word to be sure, but a word associated nowadays in the video game industry with a game of the same name. The game in question was one that saw a near instant removal from Steam because of the controversy over the game's premise. After seeing the first initial trailer for Hatred, I can understand the apprehension many people have. It's violent, vitriolic, and somewhat uncomforta...

How VR Ruined Gaming for Me

119d ago ... When I look back on it, I should have seen it coming all along. Im a gamer and have been for about 20 odd years. But what happened 6 days ago changed my life. As I said before, I'm a gamer. I'm also a technophile. I love tech. I currently poured about $8000 into my Media Room. Front and center is my pride and joy. A 106" projector screen. I ended every house tour with a blazing demo of...

The Future of 007 in Gaming

122d ago ... "When is the next James Bond game being released?" my mother asked this evening during dinner. In seven months, it'll have been three years since 007 Legends launched, the last installment in the James Bond video game franchise. It was a question that I have been asking myself for two years, since Activision lost the Bond license after having acquired it from EA seven years prior. It's also a q...

QTE's and Cinematic Games Aren't Going Away

123d ago ... It's Monday, I've been up for about an hour and a half as of the writing of this blog, and I decided I'd check out my youtube subscriptions to see if there was anything good to start out the day with. I saw a video from AVGN, Angry Joe reviewed The Order 1886, and Jim Sterling did a Jimquisition about Cinematics. All in all, some good videos. Angry Joe and Jim Sterling coincidentally ended u...

In Defense Of Ground Zeroes

123d ago ... As every man and his dog cram their metaphorical baggage into the overhead storage of the hype train that's destined for the mysterious release date of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, I sheepishly volunteer myself to be the fuddy-duddy who yanks on the emergency stop cord and politely asks the driver to go back to Ground Zeroes-ville. Why? Because only one description lingers after the ri...

Ye Olde Import Game

125d ago ... In today’s interconnected world, gaming has never been so transparent, especially when it comes to imports. If you want a game from Japan just hop on Amazon and go get it. If there is a certain title you want localized, well then just petition your heart away until you get your wish. It wasn’t always this easy though. Not so long ago importing a game was a dicey affair and more often than not i...

An Ugly Dress and Why it Doesn't Matter What Color You See

125d ago ... Social media has been abuzz about the picture of a rather hideous dress. When shown this picture and asked, "What do you see?" I reply, "An ugly dress." But the raging debate about the color of the dress made me realize something very fundamental. Some people see a black and blue dress. Some people see a gold and white dress. And some people can see both. But it doesn't matter what colo...

A Story about Story (In Games)

126d ago ... Videogames began as a very rudimentary and simple form of expression. Technological and financial constraints meant that programmers and creators worked with severe limitations. One of the earliest commercial successes came in the form of Pong, which comprised of a few pixels (455x262) and simple audio (a few beeps). Combined with the early coin-op / arcade business model, this meant that early...

Everything YOU need to know about | Dragon Ball Xenoverse

129d ago ... There was a time, believe it or not, where Dragon Ball games weren't all annually released mediocrity. Dating back to the PS2 era, there was tons of fun to be had with Spike’s Dragon Ball Tenkaichi 3 and Dimps’ Budokai series. Somehow, like krillin, the source material refuses to die with Namco releasing new iterations every year. Other anime franchises have found a comfortable playstyle like...
