How Oppression Quest Perfectly Sums Up Corruption And Nepotism In Gaming Journalism

4d ago ... Unless you've lived in a cave on Mars, with your eyes shut and your fingers in your ears, then I'm sure you've heard of the Quinnspiracy, a.k.a. Five Guys Burgers and Fries, a.k.a. Who Won't Zoe Quinn Sleep With To Get Ahead. But just in case you still haven't, there's a text adventure game for you that perfectly sums up the situation, and even provides some shocking detail to just how far a...

12d ago ... Ladies and Gentlemen, I have an exciting announcement to make. Thanks to years of support from my partners here at N4G, the success that that partnership has brought both myself and everyone on the site, I'm proud to announce that the proceeding blog will be posted exclusively on N4G.com. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T2l15bKMZk Yeah, no one cares. The topic of exclusive content just k...

Rest In Peace Robin Williams.

18d ago ... I know this isn't the kind of thing one would normally talk about on a gaming news site, or if they would it'd be more appropriate in the forums; but I can't log into the forums and I think it's appropriate to talk about here considering just who I am about to talk about. In case any of you haven't heard, Robin Williams was found dead today. The current working theory is that he committed su...

Misrepresenting While Female Part 2

41d ago ... Hello everyone, this is Part 2 of my blog series on the GaymerX2 panel titled "Internetting While Female." You can find all of the pertinent information about the subject material in part 1 here. http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/dragonknight/528328 I'll be posting another "reward" video at the end that has nothing to do with the blog but is a kind of thanks for your patience. Without further...

Misrepresenting While Female Part 1

42d ago ... This blog is about a week late, but to my defense I had just found out about this particular panel and so that's why I'm now going to be discussing it. A week ago the GaymerX2 convention had a panel discussion titled "Internetting While Female." The focus of this blog will be to dissect what is wrong about everything being discussed in the panel. I'm going to start by linking 2 videos pertin...

The Virtues Of Assassin's Creed 3

54d ago ... There are times in my life where I have kind of a "gaming rut;" an extended period of time where there is either nothing new or current that interests me, or I simply do not have the finances to purchase what does. In these moments I take to going back and playing older games. Sometimes I age myself and go way back to play NES to PS1 games; still other times I don't go so far and I will play PS...

International Exclusionary Sports Federation: The Hearthstone Incident

58d 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...

Regulated Development By Committee Is Closer Than You Think

74d ago ... It's late at night and I should be asleep, but I just finished watching a 3 hour rebuttal to the latest Anita Sarkeesian video and something struck my mind. It inspired me to write this blog which will partially be about Anita's new video, but mostly about current events in game development and where it's headed. For starters, if you have confidence in your mental stamina, and stability, sit th...

It Just Never Ends: An Ubisoft Tale

77d ago ... I didn't want to do a blog on this. I was sitting in front of my laptop when this B.S. first came out saying to myself "this is just something that will never end, don't do a blog on it, don't, just don't. There's only been about 20 different sites talking about it and getting so much wrong, don't bother." Then after 2 days of not really hearing much, Eurogamer comes out with its contribution t...

My Views On E3 2014

81d ago ... E3 2014's press conferences have literally just ended, and I'm going to go right into what I thought about the pressers individually, and the event as a whole. I watched every conference there was, and I'm just going to start at the beginning. Microsoft: ============== They did an excellent job, Phil Spencer especially. Watching the conference, I saw on Twitter and the chat window that pe...

Games Journalists vs. The Society of Professional Journalists

86d ago ... I watched an interesting video on youtube that linked to a tweet made by Polygon's Brian Crecente, which you can read here. https://twitter.com/crecenteb/status/473101155481169920 So, like the video that showed me this tweet, I decided to take my own stab at this topic and rate how much games journalism follows this code, if at all. The code can be found here. http://www.spj.org/eth...

Dear Mr. Sessler: An Open Letter From 'The Internet'

98d ago ... I'm not the type of person that could adequately structure a blog post as a letter, despite what the title would say. I'm simply not too good at coming up with fitting titles. I read your Guest Editorial on Kotaku today ( http://kotaku.com/memories-of-my-16-year-career-in-video-games-1580581507), and I thought that I would try to explain some things to you from my own personal perspecti...

Unreasonable Complaints:- May,19th, 2014 - Watch Dogs Protagonist

102d ago ... It just had to happen again didn't it? I hope, by the end of this blog, more of you will begin to understand why people like me take Social Justice Warriors, Professional Complainers, and the colloquially termed Sh*t Disturbers to task whenever we get a chance to. When apathy is the rule of the day, we only have ourselves to blame when an end result becomes unfavourable to us all. Today I'm...

In Defense Of Nintendo And Game Development

113d ago ... I wasn't going to write a blog on this subject, but then I saw the news talking about the issue I'm going to discuss this morning and thought that this has gone far enough. The specific issue I'm addressing is the Tomodachi Life/Nintendo vs. the LGBT community. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's the gist. Nintendo released a game called Tomodachi Life. It is an alternate wor...

Rant: Why Gamers Are Killing Progress

114d ago ... I'm not even going to try to come up with some kind of fitting opening sentence for this. I am going to write a disclaimer though. Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this blog are OPINIONS! They are NOT demands on anyone, and whatever you want to spend your own money on is completely up to you, so don't try to come in here and tell me that I'm telling you how to spend your money because I...

The Continued Stupidity Of Social Justice Warriors In Gaming Part 2

126d ago ... Without any ado, I'm just going to get into Part 2 of my blog dissecting Jonathan McIntosh's absolutely ludicrous "article" on male gamer privilege. If you want to read part one, follow this link. http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/dragonknight/526879 "DAILY EFFECTS OF MALE GAMER PRIVILEGE" 13. When purchasing most major video games in a store, chances are I will not be asked if (or assum...

The Continued Stupidity Of Social Justice Warriors In Gaming Part 1

128d ago ... It is no secret about my opinion on Social Justice, its Warriors, and their place in the gaming consciousness and culture. I'm not going to go into things I've already stated in previous blogs and comments about that topic, but I am going to first engage in a nuclear facepalm, a sigh, and then discuss why I was forced to do those two things. It all started with this... http://www.polygon....

Stop Supporting Blatant Cash Grabs

139d ago ... I'm just going to come right out and say this at the very beginning, The Last of Us Remastered is a clear cash grab and poor attempt at bolstering PS4 releases in the wake of the fact that true PS4 releases are slow going because Sony didn't skimp on support for the PS3 just to bring games to the PS4. The Last of Us Remastered is just as bad as Tomb Raider: Fraud.. I mean Definitive Edition....

My Thoughts About Writing For Gaming News Sites

142d ago ... What I'm about to say is said purely in the spirit and intent of observation, and is said with sincere humility, not arrogance or pride. Whether or not you agree with what I say in my blogs, the fact remains that my blogs do tend to stir up conversations, heated ones at that. Due to many of my blogs, and the fact that 50% of the people who read them hate me for them, and the other 50% love m...
