Valve Announces Steam Machines

Valve Announces Steam Machines

Sep 25, 2013

Today Valve made their second out of three planned announcements for this week. First they revealed the SteamOS, and the most recent announcement was that they will be releasing many systems designed specifically for their new OS. Valve started creeping into our living rooms earlier this year with Big Picture, a special display mode that enables the user to...

Metal Gear Solid 5: Facts and Speculation

Metal Gear Solid 5: Facts and Speculation

Sep 14, 2013

Of all franchises, Metal Gear probably has the looniest fans that tear trailers and announcements to shreds looking for symbolism. Admittedly, this is perpetuated by Hideo Kojima’s constant trolling and affinity for convoluted plots which makes almost every fan theory seem normal by contrast. Nothing is too crazy for MGS. In this article, I will present the...

Call of Duty: Ghosts – All There is to Know

Call of Duty: Ghosts – All There is to Know

Sep 10, 2013

As someone who takes video games seriously it is an almost instinctive reaction to dry-heave and punch something as soon as the CALLADUTES gets mentioned – a reaction I’ve maintained for every CoD game after MW2. Not only did they never live up to the hype, I was never even captivated by the hype in the first place. I’m not at all ashamed to admit that it...

PrioVR – Next-Gen Motion Sensor Suit for the Oculus Rift

PrioVR – Next-Gen Motion Sensor Suit for the Oculus Rift

Sep 10, 2013

When Oculus Rift was first announced it was met with a wave of excitement and skepticism. It promised so much but it still seemed almost too good to be true. Soon after a virtual reality omni-directional treadmill was introduced, the Virtuix Omni. The Virtuix was met mostly with sighs of annoyance due to the fact that it looked ridiculous. In reality, I think...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows Review

Sep 4, 2013

Somehow it seems that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise is condemned to mediocrity in any and all of its attempts to measure up to the glory days of the original cartoon or the Turtles in Time game. In this case, the mediocrity is simply painful as one can see brilliance trying to shine through layers upon layers of what feels like pure laziness by the...

10 Popular Android Apps and Games Are Currently Free on Amazon

Aug 30, 2013

Only a few hours ago a handful of great Android games dropped in price to the whooping amount of $0. This unprecedented free-stuff-a-thon came out of nowhere and has no indications of when exactly it will end. If you’re an Android user who still doesn’t own Angry Birds, Pac-Man TURBO-HD GX SUPER KINDLE TABLET EDITION (actually just Pac-Man HD kindle tablet...

Gone Home Review

Gone Home Review

Aug 22, 2013

Gone Home throws you into the shoes of Katie Greenbriar as she returns home after a year in Europe. You’re standing on the veranda, sheltered from the storm raging outside, but still separated from the comfort of your home – a position you will metaphorically retain throughout the game. On the front door there is a note. It’s Sam, your sister, informing you...

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...

Why Xbox One Might Not Be the Worst Console Ever

Why Xbox One Might Not Be the Worst Console Ever

Jun 7, 2013

In light of Microsoft’s recent reveal of Xbox ONE, and the hate that it stirred up on the internet, Sony has officially stated that they will not have compulsory DRM on PS4. Publishers will be free to use their own proprietary DRM (just like they do now), which of course made the Xbox ONE look even more like hot street trash to any consumer. But is Microsoft...
