Are Multiplayer Features Ruining Games?

119d ago ... A question I've been asking myself lately after the many disappointments of this year. With 2014 almost at a close with only one more month to spare I got thinking back to all the big disappointments of the year, now at first I just assumed like many others believed that these recent disappointments were either because the game was hyped too much where the game wouldn't reach our expectations o...

Gamer Health - Recognizing and Avoiding Seizures

120d ago ... Seizures can be hard to detect. They can be stealthy, like a really good internet troll. When you hear the word seizure, you may conjure an image of tremors, twitching or jerking movements. If you’ve never seen one, check out YouTube, or just think of your friends trying to dance to dubstep. The reality is that seizures can present in a variety of ways. They can occur at various ages for the fi...

Lessons from Kickstarter

121d ago ... I’m no great fan of kickstarter. I see in it great potential for the exploitation of a young passionate audience. It’s basically an extreme pro-order with no guarantee of actually receiving the product you want or any product for that matter. Still, many people love kickstarter for very good reasons. It is a good way to see a project realized that may ordinarily not be approved by “the suits” i...

Toxicity, the Internet Gamer Community

125d ago ... I've recently become, and been made, aware of the impact the internet gaming community was having on my personal well-being. Long story short, I have many reasons in my life to be happy, yet my attitude is more negative than it ought to be. I've realized that was because I was part of a toxic community. Now I want to say I hold no illusions. I will absolutely not pretend that the gaming comm...

Non-Gamers Do Not Understand Sometimes

127d ago ... To all those people who said that ‘gamers’ are wasting their time with comparing graphics or ‘Who has the better console’ contest, do not really understand us. We are human; we tend to not admit defeat because the console we bought with our OWN money will always be the console we know that is the best choice for us. A slight hint of defeat with either one of those console can cause tons of comp...

The Outrage Cycle - Click, Rage, Repeat

127d ago ... I’m staring at a submitted article entitled “PS4 vs Xbox One: Sony’s in Trouble, Not Microsoft”, right next to it is another entitled “Microsoft's Xbox One Is Looking Like a Lost Cause”. I know it’s going to be nonsense. I know that this is an elaborate troll for hits. I can predict the content and I can predict the response in the comments. I’ve been here before. I’m one click away from a sens...

Celebgate and Gamergate: A New Culture War

128d ago ... Do you know what happens when you listen to people who say "GEEZ, you all need to stop talking about people like Anita Sarkeesian and stop giving her attention. They'll just go away and this will all be over if you do"? You get this http://blogjob.com/oneangrygamer/2014/11/gamergate-interest-groups-want-to-take-online-harassment-to-senate/ “Celebgate and Gamergate: A New Culture War.”...

I teach through gaming (What gaming has taught me).

128d ago ... I have the most rewarding job in the world. I teach. I teach students of all levels, of all ages and of all backgrounds. I believe that students are equalized and thrive on a leveled playing field once they come across a teacher who understands their differentiated needs. A common foe in a Language Arts class is different reading skills, ranging from low, on target, to below proficiency....

Why The last of Us Should Not Have a Direct Sequel

130d ago ... *This blog contains spoilers for the last of us* The Last of Us is one of the most successful games in recent memory, with lifetime sales above 8 million, and near universal praise from critics and consumers alike. Both Sony and Naughty Dog know this, and undoubtedly this has led to talks of a sequel. While nothing has been officially announced, Neil Druckmann, the games director, has pre...

Anita Sarkeesian: Not Playing With a Full Deck

130d ago ... From my open letter to the gaming media to my impressions of the controversial career of Phil Fish, we now bookend the core of my blogs regarding certain people attacking gamers with arguably the most despised opponent of video games since Jack Thompson. Her name is in the title and bears no introduction. We all know who Anita Sarkeesian is. We know what this woman has accomplished. She is infa...

Why I fell in love with Sony.

133d ago ... There are many reasons I am a self proclaimed Sony fan and there are many reasons. Some of the reasons I will outline will seem insignificant, and to most people they will be, but they became huge considerations when writing and when I considered selling my Xbox 360 just to purchase a PS4. Other reasons are reflections on Sony and the way they run their business. These reasons give me confidenc...

Why we can forgive 343i and certainly not Ubisoft

133d ago ... I write this in response to the likes of those who write and agree with articles like this http://gamerant.com/rushed-video-games-bad-launches/ As a gaming community, we tend to get in an uproar very quickly and typically for poor reason. We then go on to whine about whatever it is that set us off, and then make fools of ourselves by writing articles with little sense, like one Brad Jones of...

Managing that Holiday Debt

135d ago ... The holidays are a wondrous celebration of the birth of capitalism - at least that’s what my accountant tells me. Each year we are compelled to undo all the hard of the past year as part of some social obligation that surprisingly has its own propaganda piece entitled “A Christmas Carol”. Everybody hates a scrooge, even the Scrooges hate each other. Don’t surrender to the herd just yet though,...

On the evolution of Grand Theft Auto

136d ago ... Grand Theft Auto V is now playable from a first-person perspective. That is, Grand Theft Auto, a series that’s as equally notable for its original birds-eye viewpoint as it is its current third-person stance, can now be viewed through the blood-shot eyes of its frenzied protagonist for the very first time. To see how we’ve made it this far is to recollect the gradual yet incredibly realiz...

The Video Game Crash of Today.

136d ago ... The video games crash of 1983, or know in Japan as the Atari shock did not make the future of the video games industry look promising. I’m sure the majority of us know about this of some sort. The industry was rising at a rapid rate and it was easy for anybody and everybody with some knowledge and know how to make video games for many consoles that where on the market at the time. At the top wa...

The State of Video Games So Far

137d ago ... Back in 2013 the gaming community was introduced to the next generation of video game consoles, they were shown to be faster, smoother and more powerful then the previous generation, as expected, but never the less the community couldn't contain their excitement for the following year as we would be in the first year of the next generation of consoles, and also we would be introduced to the fir...

Assassin Creed Unity: First Impressions? Is It Really That Good?

138d ago ... Wow, Yes, yes and yes this one is awesome, have just been playing for a little while and decide to just do a blog post because I’m loving the game so far. So I thought I would give you my first impressions in-case you are on the fences about the game. Just for reference / this is not a review just my first impressions so far / I’m playing on the PS4. And while I’m sure the XboxOne is pretty...
