Indie Strong

52d ago ... [b]By Cat[/b] He was wearing a bright red plastic fireman’s hat and soliciting the Indie Alley traffic like their very gaming salvation depended on it. As I approached the booth for my scheduled interview I surreptitiously surveyed their reactions and those of the people already playing, confirming that it wasn’t just me - Fire Hose Games Fire Chief Eitan Glinert has infectious enthusiasm.

The Videogames Industry: How far we've come.

324d ago ... Way back in the late 80's early 90, when videogames were first becoming popular as a entertainment medium, who would ever have guessed that the videogames industry would come as far as it has today? It is after all arguably the greatest, most popular and profitable entertainment medium around right now. My reason for writing this blog is in order to discuss the high points of the videogame i...

Four things I learned from a casual gamer

488d ago ... My gaming experience stretches back into my early childhood. Propped on the trophy-wall of my memory are countless consoles I've owned, countless online lobbies I've conquered, countless adventures I've embarked upon, and all the years of experience that goes along with those. I am a hardcore gamer. I pre-order and I Kickstart. I argue and discuss on message forums. I own more games and game sy...

Homebrew vs Piracy: Know the Difference

968d ago ... There is a constant negative reaction toward hackers, and the words piracy and hacking becomes synonymous. This hate of hackers and their work becomes more prominent to me as I watch countless videos and articles of hacker-related articles.

Go Home Dinosaurs! Interview, Part One

1081d ago ... Interviewing Eitan Glinert, Fire Hose Games’ Fire Chief, isn’t really about asking questions so much as it is staying out of the way of his train of thought. He’s just cool like that. In part one of our interview at PAX he talks to me about their upcoming tower defense title Go Home Dinosaurs!, how the game began as Slam Bolt Scrappers mobile, and 40 to 50 to 60-person multiplayer features....

Go Home Dinosaurs! Hands-On

1082d ago ... It’s a Fire Hose Games’ title, so you know two things straight away: it’s going to be silly, and tetris-style puzzle pieces will have a role to play. In Go Home Dinosaurs!, a tower defense title about protecting your BBQ from dinos, the former is a given and the latter? Well those puzzle pieces are the tower footprints, which can make tower construction perfectly tricky. Waves after wave of...

This St. Paddy's Day Throw one Back with Slam Bolt Scrappers

1258d ago ... Slam Bolt Scrappers is one of those games that is just plain likable. While at a show like GDC I'm often asked for my favorite game, a question that's usually difficult to answer. There are games that show potential, games that intrigue, games that are striking but we never get to try hands on - and then there are games that you walk half a mile away from the convention for so that you can meet...

My Indispensable Dependency

1258d ago ... Have you ever played something called a video game? its a new form of digital entertainment, apparently its kicking up quite a storm and developing quite a following on twitter. I was inadvertently bitten by the gaming bug early on in childhood, during what i like to call the good old days. Back when i used to play pong, pitfall and tetris while everyone else had a NES (nintendo entertainment s...

Adiction-simplicity ratio.

1288d ago ... Remember Pac Man, Tetris, Asteroids, Pong?If your answer is yes, then you are the same as hundreds of thousands of gamers who have a memory relating one or more of those games.But since then,things in the gaming industry have changed,but does that mean that there are no longer programmers as creative as Toru Iwatani or Alexey Pajitnov? I know what you're gonna say,graphics and advanced technol...

Types of Gamers

1292d ago ... Ok this is inspired but an episode of "The Game Overthinker"(google it, watch the series) and let me just say that MovieBob is definitely an intelligent and entertaining guy on all of his shows(He also does "Escape to the movies" and "The Big Picture" on The Escapist) and people should go check out his stuff. Let's look at the types of gamers we know and then I'll get to the main point of th...

My 5 most anticipated games for the Nintendo 3DS

1422d ago ... Watching as the 3DS is getting more and more games announced for it everyday, I cannot help but to get hyped up for the system. But then I look at all the announced games and I feel that something is missing, than it hit me. 5 great franchises are completely missing from the list of games. I decided what better to do than to make a list of games that I feel need to be on the 3DS (Honestly, the...

N4G at PAX - Day 1

1453d ago ... One of the quirky things about my job is swapping hats between journalist for N4G's editorial site, ZTGD, and Community Manager for N4G. Here's what I'm going to try here: I'm all C.M. in this blog, with mere hints of what's in store for my coverage over on ZTGD. Here you will find what I saw and what I got - and the latter is a strong indicator of what may be given away on N4G in the coming we...
