Why I Can’t Take E3 [Or Any Trade Convention] Seriously

It happens every year.  Every year, without fail, at around this time, "real" news [and I use the word in inverted commas, because really - game releases and hints at game releases aren't really "news" at all.  They're - at best - terrible product placement] drops right off the radar. Why?  Because some PR drone…

Farewell, Blizzard

Warning!  This is long and ranty and link heavy!  [Links will open in new tabs] I remember Silicon and Synapse.  You might not, but I do.  They weren't big enough to work on their own projects, so they did ports of other games to various other consoles.  None of these ports were particularly big, but…

Sequels Are Hurting The Game Industry.

I don't play as many games as I used to. Part of the reason for this has to do with the fact that I'm just more picky now: often, games only appeal to one of my senses and not all of them. As in, I can be swayed a little by the graphics. Or maybe…

New Steam Store Releases: Call of Mushihimesama

It seems that this was a pretty big week on the Steam Store.

Additionally, SEGA graciously saw fit to bring over their previously Nintendo-exclusive Sonic the Hedgehog game, Sonic Lost…

New PlayStation Store Releases: CoD BlOps III

It's that time of year again. Time to write off that $120+ and God only knows how many hours you spent on last year's Call of Duty game and DLC. It's time to pop that disc out of your console and fling it frisbee style straight into the trash can (please don't actually do this). It's…

New Steam Store Releases: Transformers: Devastation

I'm still sticking with Transformers: Devastation as my pick of the week. It was definitely the stand-out title on the Steam Store. If you ever wanted to play the perfect video game adaptation of an iconic '80s cartoon show, this is the one you've been waiting for. Also out this week, a monkey action puzzle game…

New PlayStation Store Releases: Transformers: Devastation!

I've felt a great disturbance in the PlayStation Store; as if millions of wallets cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. There's a LOT of great stuff to choose from this week! Transformers: Devastation, Disgaea 5, Rock Band 4, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, and Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax all look to be must-have…

New PlayStation Store Releases: NBA 2K16

Just in time for the start of the NBA preseason, the PlayStation Store now has two new b-ball games on offer, NBA 2K16 and NBA Live 16. In case you're not sure which one you should get, just go with 2K. That series has always been better. Also out this week, Mega Man Legends, the granddaddy of all…
