Why Microsoft Was Forced to Screw Us All

Why Microsoft Was Forced to Screw Us All

Jun 30, 2013

One could compare Microsoft’s initial plan for the XBOX ONE to someone throwing buckets of feces at a ceiling fan, but I won’t. Their announcement was more like that one single neutron that crashed into the nucleus of video game culture and then proceeded to break down into shit, spawning more neutrons to perpetuate this shit fission. First, the whole...

Pool Nation Review

Jun 30, 2013

Ah, pool. Billiards. The gentleman’s game. Is that what they call it? I think that’s what they call it. Anyway,  there has been no shortage of pool games on modern consoles, and Pool Nation is yet another one. Pool Nation features both 8 and 9 ball modes across its single-player cups, endurance mode, and multiplayer. The cups pit you against an...

Saints Row IV Hands-On Preview

Jun 29, 2013

Who would have thought a little open world crime game from the makers of Red Faction about joining a gang and taking over the city would grow from being the only option for a GTA-esque experience on the Xbox 360 to one of the most interesting franchises of the console generation. Saints Row the Third could easily be considered one of, if not the best open world...

After their collaboration with Lucas Arts on LEGO Star Wars raked in such high praise in 2005, Traveler’s Tales continued on teaming up with other franchises to make licensed games.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf Review

Animal Crossing: New Leaf Review

Jun 28, 2013

Animal Crossing always has been a rare breed of video game. After four entries in the series, I still don’t know who these games are for or why I love them so much. In true Nintendo fashion, each entry fails to drastically move the franchise forward,  yet we continue to buy them and cherish the days we lose to our charming little towns filled with whimsy....

The Heat Review

The Heat Review

Jun 27, 2013

Funny lady Melissa McCarthy is teaming up with the Oscar winning Sandra Bullock to kick crime right in the junk. The Heat brings these two together under the direction of Bridesmaids director Paul Feig and it so desperately wants to be the next great chapter in girl comedy, or at least it feels that way. There is so much comedic talent in this movie, it’s...

Steam Trading Cards: A History for the Uninitiated and the Sane

Jun 26, 2013

The past year or so has been an interesting one for gamers hooked into the personal computer’s most popular marketplace, Steam. In August of last year, Valve launched Greenlight, a service which aims to give publishing power to the people when it comes to unproven developers. In December of that year, Steam launched Big Picture Mode, a push to make controller...
