Under the Knife: Swatting, a Deplorable Crime

7d ago ... A lingering trend has come to my attention recently. Apparently, this trend has gained traction since 2013 and has grown into something new. The trend I'm referring to (and which is titled above) is called "Swatting". What is Swatting? Swatting is the false reporting of a violent or ongoing crime at a designated location or by a victim whose sole purpose is to get a huge emergency response (pre...

An Open Letter to Gaming Media

10d 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

44d 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...

New Indie Projects to Check Out

50d ago ... Hello, everyone! It's been a good while since I wrote up something here. I have been sick for awhile and haven't had the opportunity to really focus on writing.

You're help and opinions are very much appreciated. I also have been told about some t...

The Stick of Truth Has Risen the Bar for Licensed Games

101d ago ... Diverting away from the ongoing topics from E3, I want to focus this blog on a game that I feel does its source material justice. Obviously, I am talking about South Park: The Stick of Truth. It has been a few months since the game released, but its impact with how licensed games have been produced has been felt across the industry. Considering that the game was heralded by Matt Stone and Trey...

E3: The Problem with Post-Show Fanboyism and Critiques

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...

A Look at the Tomodachi Life Conundrum

122d ago ... I know I'm a tad late to the party regarding this particular story, but you guys know that when I end up reading something that gets me thinking I have to write on it. The aforementioned "something" was an opinion piece that was submitted to N4G earlier in May. Titled "You Should Be Upset About Tomodachi Life", the entirety of the opinion piece is structured in a way so as to make you (the read...

Kingdom Hearts: Beginning, Impact, and Future

As many of you have probably seen, I have been covering Kingdom Hearts III with my own speculation on what could possibly be awesome for the final entry to have. If you haven't seen them, please check them out from my blog section. For now,...

Kickstarters to Look Out For

161d ago ... A few Kickstarter projects have recently come to my attention. Now, I know that some people approach Kickstarter with caution; however, some of these projects look promising and have some funding. The intent behind Kickstarter is to help out and I think that these are some worthy ideas to get behind. After all, Mighty No. 9 wouldn't be where it is now without support from the community. There i...

Kingdom Hearts III: Possible New Concepts

Not Cool, Capcom. Smash Bros Does it Better.

178d ago ... You know, guys, I wanted to stay positive this month by making my blogs focus on Kingdom Hearts. I wanted to share ideas about what Kingdom Hearts III could have in its gameplay and worlds. I wanted to share music I found online that is extremely well done. I also wanted to end it all with a great Beginning, Impact, and Future blog. But even in my good moods, Capcom decides to play the fiendish...

Kingdom Hearts III: The Possible Worlds

181d ago ... I'm fairly certain that this article has been done before on here, but I really and so desperately want to talk about this. With anticipation growing for Kingdom Hearts III, gamers are sharing their opinions on this final installment. What is also discussed constantly is how big this game is going to be. It's the final game in the series, but what else could be added to it aside from the main s...

Should Resident Evil Go on Hiatus?

199d ago ... Resident Evil, the name speaks for itself and it's own place in the genre of horror video games. It was what spooked us and kept us up at night. It's creatures terrified us. It's atmosphere was claustrophobic and tense. So how fairs Resident Evil these days? Not well. I was originally contemplating on if I should cover Resident Evil in Beginning, Impact, and Future; however, I know exactly wher...

Why Gamers Should Care About EA on the Worst Company List

249d ago ... We are quickly approaching that time of the year again. The Consumerist website will be tallying up their nominees for the Worst Company in America. Already they have been getting flooded with votes from participants about who they believe is the worst company. Once again, Electronic Arts has been nominated by many people and I know what some you just did. You either sighed, rolled your eyes, o...

Marvel Taking Control is a Good Thing

255d ago ... So, it's been awhile since I have had the time to really buckle down and write up something new for the site, but I have been keeping up with recent developments regarding a couple of subjects that I really want to talk about. One of these subjects particularly is that Marvel was taking down various titles within digital stores at an alarming rate. Steam, PSN, and Xbox Live saw titles like Marv...

Under the Knife: VGX Failure and Needed Fixes

292d ago ... So...the VGX. How was it? If I had to bet that EA would suddenly change their policy on microtransactions being obsolete in their future projects, then they would pull a bigger miracle than the VGX could in succeeding to give a good video game awards show. Before I go further, I will let you know that I am merely going to have a snippet of ranting before I get into the meat of analyzing why the...

Under the Knife: PETA Attacks Pokemon Yet Again

356d ago ... It would appear that PETA is yet to let up on one of gaming's most cherished franchises. That's right, folks, PETA is up to their old shenanigans yet again. They are back for round two with their favorite punching bag: Pokemon. Yes, PETA is once again targeting one of the most kid-friendly and (if anything) pro-animal games around, while also taking a jab at McDonald's. How exactly are they doi...

Take Notes Capcom: Mighty No. 9 Hits it Big

364d ago ... I'm sure many of you know as per zerocrossing's blog that Keiji Inafune has had a successful Kickstarter campaign. Since that post, the campaign has managed to raise a little over four million dollars. Mighty No. 9 will be having it's time in the spotlight across multiple platforms in the near future.

For those of you not in the know, Total War: Rome II has just been released and it has been stirring a lot of controversy.
