Polar-Opposite Worlds: Inside and Ori Revamp the 2D Platform

9d ago ... How will two projects revamp a classic genre to fit the modern taste? For starters, Play Dead Studios's "Inside" focuses more on a straight-forward story-telling plot as a young boy journeys from the fields into the city's factory. On the other hand, "Ori and the Blind Forest" developed by Moon Studios set their priorities on the game's mechanical features. To read more details with the videos...

Interview with Robin Arnott, Part One

[i]Robin Arnott, sound designer and lead developer, takes us through a very educated and radical journey about SoundSelf and its far-out origins and even more complex goals as a medium for self-discovery.[/i] [b]Kyle:[/b] Now, SoundSelf is a “game” unlike any other, one directed entirely by your voice, or voices, as it were.  What sort of places did you draw inspiration to even conceive Soun...

Some Words for SoundSelf

25d ago ... [b]From Kyle[/b] Traveling to the astral plane by opening your third eye and leaving your pathetic meat and fiber sack behind is not something you consider doing often, but developer and sound designer Robin Arnott may have just the conduit to allow you to explore this possibility without the need for decade-long escapes to the furthest reaches of the Himalayas among spiritually altruistic m...

Interview with Don’t Starve: Reign of Giants’ Seth Rosen, Part One

38d ago ... [i]Don't Starve reigns as one of the most interesting titles in recent years, offering more in the ways of the experience and focusing on the journey rather than being a means to an end. Klei Entertainment's Seth Rosen (Designer/Programmer) elucidates some of the finer points of Don't Starve, communities on both PC and console, and what's next for our morbid little dudes and dudettes in the va...

Breath of Fire 3: A Beautiful message like no other!

48d ago ... (Spoiler alert. This is for those who have already completed the game.) Back in the day, I was fortunate to play a game on the playstation one. This game was of course Capcom's Breath of fire 3; the third instalment in the series. The series sees the main protagonist Ryu on his search to find out his missing past, and a mysterious goddess that guides him through his travels. Oh... And did I...

Do Better Graphics Make a Better Game? (Round 2! Link's Awakening vs. A Link to the Past)

54d ago ... To get this out of the way right now, Link's Awakening is the first game in the Zelda series I actually completed (beaten and 100%) which gives it a sort of bias in my mind. That being said, I have so much love for the Zelda series as a whole that I believe I can make an honest judgement between each game. What I loved about Link's Awakening is that it is a complete side story that doesn't invo...

PS Plus: More Indies Please.

109d ago ... I've noticed -- as I'm sure most people have -- that Indies are currently seen as the poor man's alternative to AAA titles but I have to completely disagree. First of all I must confess that back in the day when Indies were all the rage on the 360, I too dismissed them out of hand. It wasn't because I needed a new hammer to beat a console with, it was simply because my idea of an Indie game had...

Video Game Collecting

From Then Til Now: An Amazing Gaming Journey

161d ago ... I feel lucky to be one of those to say I have been around since the dawn of gaming. Born in the early 70s, I got to see the beginning of what would become one of the most sought after hobbies in human history. Something shared by those, young and old. An industry that was born in peoples basements and garages, to the multi million dollar corporations listed on the stock exchange. From crude 10...

Tales of Genderillia

203d ago ... It is said that there are only two stories in the world...a stranger came to the village and the villagers venture out and meet a stranger. Tales of Xillia had been an interesting journey, to say the least. After almost a week of reflection, I've found it surprising what had and hadn't stuck with me. Most notably, it seems, I'm still reflecting on how it had subverted the accepted Male/Femal...

Gone Home helped me realize what a “game” is to me (and now I don’t like it)

366d ago ... This blog’s been a bit of a journey. It started as a post on game length, pacing and dollar-per-hour value, but I came to a pretty major revelation as I wrote it and decided to flesh that out here. Firstly, let me state that I’m not meaning to badmouth Gone Home here. In fact, I recommend it… as soon as it’s 50% off on Steam. It doesn’t need to meet MY definition of a game. I just thought w...

What "Made" Grand Theft Auto: III

378d ago ... As we verge into Grand Theft Auto: V's rich, sun-soaked plains, the best way to hold any ongoing hype until launch is by reminiscing the past memories of times long gone, and in Rockstar Games' case, the best way in which such an arduous task can be completed is by concisely compacting Rockstar Games' Herculean landscapes into a single article for easy memorial. Prepare to travel from the sordi...

Why indies are going to matter now more than ever

454d ago ... As rumors swirl around and as we get more glimpses into the almost-always-online future of the Xbox One, people are a bit bothered by the possibility that this is simply the way future gaming is going to be. Unfortunately, that's what happens when Microsoft reveals a so-called "console" and almost completely ignores games. It doesn't inspire confidence that gaming is going to be the focus in...

Life of Pixel - A Nostalgia Trip

468d ago ... Life of Pixel is the fantastically nostalgic trip through gaming history by Super Icon Ltd. Released, initially, via Sony's PlayStation Mobile service, the London based developer is now looking to bring the game to more people and more platforms. If you don't know what Life of Pixel is it, it's probably understandable. While it's my personal favourite and likely best game on the PS Mobile...

Why I love Console gaming :)

469d ago ... First of all, I’m a gamer. I don’t play a machine, I play games, all of them, regardless of the platform. Sure I have favourite genres and titles and I don’t play everything (how’s that possible), but the point is, being a gamer is about GAMES, not being a fanboy (fangirl?) of a platform. I have a good gaming PC, I have a PS3, I have an XBOX360, I have a PSVita, I have a 3DS, I have a PSP, I...
