Leap of Fate Impressions

36d ago ... [b]From Lou "herobyclicking" Adducci[/b] As a much younger man I was interested in various world religions, the occult and magic. I frequented old bookstores, new age shops and talked with the interesting, if not bizarre practitioners of these various systems of belief. Magic and mysticism is abound in our world, you just have to look for it. Clever Plays infuses Leap of Fate with our storie...

Premortem

68d ago ... As mentioned in a recent post on my website, I wrote for a small games-centric website for the entirety of 2012. At the time I kindly refused to review titles for fear of feigning objectivity, which was, to be frank, ridiculous. The op-ed’s I composed instead were rife with proclamations on every aspect of whatever game in question. Perhaps I felt I’d be pigeonholed somehow by form, and opin...

Borderlands The Pre-Sequel: The Jack of Hearts

90d ago ... We’ve all killed Handsome Jack by now. We’ve killed him with a swift shotgun strike right between the eyes, a plasma-infused punch to the jaw, and even a thrown rotary saw-blade to the chest. In the context of the communities collective playtime, Jack has died hundreds of thousands of deaths, and each one of them has been more cynically enjoyable than the last. Jack’s demise was relieving, h...

"Why Can't ______ Be ______?" Discussing The Representation Cliche

168d ago ... When deciding to write a blog, many times the inspiration or even the reason for writing the blog comes from watching a youtube video, or reading some article that makes me feel like commenting on its topic. Today is no exception. I was watching a video on youtube from a Romanian youtuber named veemonro and he was discussing an article written by Ben Kuchera titled "Wait, Why Can't Link Be A Fe...

The Sony Reformation

173d ago ... We know them as a hardware company, but over the past few years, Sony has been slowly transitioning away from hardware and towards being a service type company. Many factors are at play here. In the TV and computer markets, they were outdone by competitors who could produce for far more cheaply. The strong yen did not help them in being competitive overseas either. In their other portable elect...

Everything YOU need to know about | Dragon Ball Xenoverse

192d 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...

Well Played, Games Media, But This Isn't Over

306d ago ... GamerGate has been at the forefront of gaming news and has even been covered in other media outlets (like the BBC and The Colbert Report). Where it was once a unified movement, it has now led to a divided community and we have the games media to thank for that. Even though there was a small amount of progression on holding games media accountable for their actions, there has been an increasing...

I Am Disappoint: Destiny Damage Control

313d ago ... I know, I know, another whiny blog about what's wrong with Destiny. Well, if it makes you feel any better, this has less to do with my actual Destiny experience and more to do with the game's reception. Please watch Machinima's Inside Gaming video on Destiny's critical reception, as this edition in disappoint will be in-part a response to a certain point brought up in that video: https://www...

Interview with Size Five Games' Dan Marshall

403d ago ... [i]Dan Marshall of Size Five Games talks to us about what it means to be an indie developer, the deeper meaning behind Gun Monkeys and refuses to share even the slightest morsel on his next project. [/i] [b]Herobyclicking[/b] What does being an independent game developer mean to you? [b]Dan[/b] I guess it means freedom to do whatever I want, not having to answer to anyone. Really, the mos...

486d ago ... City of Steam: Arkadia is a 3D industrial age fantasy MMORPG, the debut Unity3D-based MMO from Mechanist Games. It transports players to a world where clockworks, steam power, and arcane technologies suffuse every aspect of existence, from the half-organic, half-mechanical dwarves to the giant gears of the World Machine itself. To celebrate the launch of yet more servers, we're giving away C...

The Adventures of Rocksteady and Wii U

526d ago ... I read the recent news article about why Rocksteady took the decision not to port to the Wii U. I already knew they weren't gonna release their game on the Wii u as well as the PS3, X360, and smart phones. But in this specific article the commenters reaction towards Rocksteady was highly negative specifically for the Wii u decision. On the other side of the coin, commenters were also highly neg...

Shaq Fooled

544d ago ... Hey! Did you hear? They are making a sequel to Shaq Fu! The tournament fighter centered on the Big Aristotle, often seen as one of the worst games of all time is back for round two! I’ll admit when I heard this news it did put a smile on my face. I’m a huge basketball fan, so I always welcome offbeat titles loosely centered on the sport. Games like Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City, Barkl...

The TRUE Resolution of Call of Duty Ghosts on Xbox One

679d ago ... This is just for the sake of discussion and my opinion means nothing in the grand scheme of things as it is purely spculation and I am not treating it as fact. I am getting both machines and I am trying to keep this as balanced as possible. So as many of you know Microsoft and Activision have not confirmed the resolution of the game for the xbox one (unless we use the eurogamer article from...

The Biological view of the FPS debate

704d ago ... In the last few days we have seen blogs being written in regards to hallow ground of many gamers, Frames Per Second, and whilst those entries have tended towards the technological aspect I have decided to throw a massive spanner in the works by introducing the complex subject of Biology that may shatter the dreams of many, or bring relief to others. To cut a long story short, in future conso...

SteamOS is an OS (and Many Other Helpful Bits of Easily Accessed Info)

711d ago ... How can people possibly get this confused? It is in the name. Steam*OS*. But apparently some people still think that it's a streaming service because they somehow skipped down the official Steam article on the subject to selectively read a portion about its streaming abilities. Fear not, I'm here to provide some clarity. First of all, SteamOS is an operating system. I know, it sounds mo...

It Isn't Easy Being a New Indie Developer

722d ago ... I've wanted to be a part of developing games since I was about 13. Me and one of my best friends would always come up with game concepts in our free time, drawing covers for our games of insane ambition. As I got older, I started considering other careers, but it all came back to game development. I couldn't afford a great university (I was a ~3.6 GPA student with above average SAT scores, b...

"Why Can't We Be Friends?"

765d ago ... With the Wii U and Vita's continued struggles, I've seen a fair share of crude behavior surrounding the fanbases of both consoles on any post that seems to talk about either in any sort of positive or negative context. It's the kind of driveling tomfoolery that you would come to expect from an article written by Jim Stirling; arrogant, off-base and pretty immature. Don't get the wrong idea, I'm...

847d ago ... Ok, some people seem to be confused about the recent video of WatchDogs -Which was a Demo that was showed in Paris- This Demo that was shown was running on a PC with an Xbox controller.. Ubisoft has stated that the PC is comparable to next gen hardware, meaning PS4 and the next Xbox, will look like this PC version.. ---Update- Further explanation - On PC comparable When they say it's c...
