Does a Low Oscar Viewership Benefit Video Game Awards?

The Oscars are this weekend, and the expected viewing rates are likely to drop once again this year. While a good amount of this has a lot to do with less and less people having traditional TV providers these days, including myself, I believe there are deeper reasons behind this as well. And it’s The Academy Awards dropping viewership that should give us gamers more confidence, both in our hobby and how we celebrate them.

Some Good Stuff is Coming

With the end of #4if approaching quickly I was curious about what to do next. So I was looking at some article suggestions on our boards and one of those was the question of: Are there any games you're looking forward to in the near future? And I thought to myself, "Self, there are games…

[PLACEHOLDER] WRUP

[This is a placeholder. As you guys know, I'm moving to my buddies, doing the world saving thing. We do have internet down there, but I will probably be rather busy, so it would be great if one of you could just delete this and write a real WRUP. Everyone else make sure to add…

Games to Play When it’s Wintertime

Although spring may be right around the corner, I am still trying to enjoy what little of winter is left.

Scrooloose: My Thoughts After #4IF

I finished A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda first... And I have to say it was a fun little side-scroller platformer. But I do mean little, it only took about three hours to complete from start to finish. Some quick thoughts follow. (more…)

The WRUP ones

Hey guys! I will take a break from doing the hard hitting investigative journalism you know me for. Why? Well, I had an epiphany. The world is a dark place. Video game companies are evil and plotting against humanity. But there is a group of people who are trying to save us by freeing what…

Why the PlayStation 6 will allow far more dynamic, interactive AND intimate gaming experiences than the PlayStation 5

Our friends over at Videogamer.com recently found out that the PS5 will allow developers to build “far more interactive worlds” than with the current generation of consoles. That’s some quality journalism over there (actually it’s based on an EDGE article), but why stop with the PS5? So let me present to you: Why the PlayStation…

I’d Like To See Some Real Games About Real Relationships.

There aren't enough interesting games about people and the most intimate way they can spend their time: in a relationship. Very often, games are peripherally aware that people get together and very often, those steps toward getting together are sometimes charted in fumbling missteps that lead to pixelated lovemaking. It's often pretty vapid and uninteresting.…
