Brendan's Blog: Salty Esports

9d ago ... We all saw the Twitter feud between Leffen and Chillindude that started with the discussion of who should be considered "Smash Gods". We also saw Westballz and Hax go at it too. All this salt and BM (bad manners) are a major part of eSports, but what does it do to the reputation of the community? In my opinion, I love seeing BM in eSports because it brings in drama and drama brings in viewer...

16d ago ... Final Fantasy 7 for Playstation 4 announced at 2014 Playstion Experience, probably a good indicator that Square Enix is making/going to release/planned JRPGs that looks, plays similar to Final Fantasy 7.

Are Games Spreading the Idea of Violence?

21d ago ... Yesterday I have been reading a news from The Guardian, which was about the sale of the recently released video game Grand Auto Theft banned in Australia due to violence against women. I wouldn't discuss violence against women specifically because once it's violence it against all kind of people. The article wasn't too long but it raised a quite large controversial debate topic: is the idea vio...

An Open Letter to Gaming Media

95d ago ... I have been on the sidelines observing the recent stories that involve everything from Anita Sarkeesian to Zoe Quinn to Phil Fish to Polygon to Kotaku to indie studios' attacks to corruption and finally to gaming media lashing out at gamers. I have recently commented that enough is enough and I'm not going to stand for it anymore. Everything that I have mentioned is going to get their fair shar...

Under the Knife: Public Relations Failure and Fan Outrage

129d ago ... Despite the overwhelming press that Rise of the Tomb Raider got last week, the aftershock is still being felt. It has now been confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be a timed exclusive for the Xbox brand and not a complete exclusive that was being touted in the first twenty-four hours of this news. A lot of people have calmed down from this revelation, but there is still residual resentm...

Was Destiny Downgraded without anyone noticing?

139d ago ... First off: I can't wait to get Destiny, everything about it has me eager to get my hands on the full release. Part of that is what brought me to this realization. I've been soaking up every tidbit of information on it ever since the Beta ended because I had a lot of fun. I loved the exploration, I love to grind for levels, I love to grind for gear and I'm very interested in the story, the cha...

OctoParty: Dadliest Spy

158d ago ... Who's that man in the 3-piece suit? A Spy! Or maybe just someone's Dad. Short Lived Heroes combined 2 of their favorite indie games to bring you this nonsense!

International Exclusionary Sports Federation: The Hearthstone Incident

176d ago ... Hell has officially frozen over. I am going to write a blog post that could be seen as defending a position akin to the feminist one, though only just barely. So for those of you that don't know, there is an organization known as the International e-Sports Federation dedicated to video game tournaments designed to promote competitive gaming as a legitimate sport. For 6 years now it has held...

E3: The Problem with Post-Show Fanboyism and Critiques

198d ago ... The Electronic Entertainment Expo has come to a close. Conferences were streamed, games were played, and technology was shown off. The who's who of the video game industry made their appearances known. We have multiple new games coming out this year and many still waiting to see distribution in the future. In light of everything shown at E3, there is still the ever lingering problem seen from b...

Leaks Might Not Be As Bad As You'd Think.

202d ago ... It happens every year. In the month or so, leading up to E3, something is bound to be leaked. Most of the time, at least two of the big three have some kind of announcement that's revealed earlier than anticipated, as does at least one third party studio. Excitement stirs, and many anticipate the full reveal of these games. On the other hand, many think leaks are a bad thing. If a compan...

Drama, Drama, Drama.

202d ago ... Bored and curious, I looked up a few YT channels. I won't name them, but you can guess which ones. I will say that they are quite notable and have been responsible for controversy. Anyways, I look up the channels, watch bits of a few videos and it suddenly dawned on me as to how much drama and sensationalism comes out of gaming journalism and gaming in general. Dead Rising 3 comes out to...

Nintendo Now Has The Right Idea About YouTube

209d ago ... To be perfectly honest with you, I'm not really expecting a warm reception to this blog. In fact I expect a lot of people to take offense with my opinions this time. They're not popular and they're not common. But I feel it's something that ought to be said. Nintendo's new stance on YouTube Let's Play revenue is the right one in my opinion. Initially, Nintendo opted to eradicate revenue people...

Google needs Twitch more than you might think

218d ago ... It’s no secret that gaming has taken over YouTube and it has happened for a number of reasons. While Movie, Television and Music industries have grown increasingly contentious as to use of their content by users on the channel, gaming companies have taken the exact opposite stance. They have been encouraging users to use their material as a means of promotion and have even been actively defe...

How to Avoid Annoying Your Gamer

219d ago ... Having to deal with customer support representatives is somewhere at the top of everyone's 'I'd rather lick the inside of a city bus than' list, so it is never truly a surprise when someone's experience with these seemingly mindless drones is worth penning. Whether it be a communication over the telephone, a live chat service or through e-mail, more often than not, a consumer is always either f...
