Open World Games Are Starting to Burn Me Out

There are too many games to play, not enough time and every developer wants to create a sweeping open world with a million question marks to visit. Enough is enough.

And yet, like that one cookie-cooker enemy that you fight in every single location of an open world game, it just…

Retro Achievements: A New Gaming Addiction

How do you make old games even more of a good time? Well, for me, you add achievements. Call me a sucker, but those digital trophies are like crack. On one hand, it’s a good way of making sure you get the absolute most out of your purchases. On the other, it’s a guide to things you might’ve missed in a game you’re loving. I get they’re not for everybody. Neither is chocolate or music. I don’t get it, but…

2021 needs to define the coming generation – because 2020 certainly didn’t

2020 was a lot of things to a lot of people, but it also had the distinct displeasure of being the year the new consoles were released. Somehow, the Xbox Series X and PS5 were still released, and the only real downside seems to be keeping stock levels high enough so people can pay for them.

New Years is the Time For Gaming Nostalgia – So Why Is It So Hard to Enjoy?

It’s around this time each year that I start to think back on Christmases past, and how wonderful it’d be to start pulling out old consoles again. The excitement of December 25 has gone, but the holiday spirit remains, and the Dreamcast or N64 is calling to me from the closet. Inevitably, I play a few games for 20 minutes, die repeatedly because of the crazy camera and then go back to some hand-holding modern title for comfort. You know…

Had a New Xbox for Christmas? Hints and tips for new Series owners

You unwrapped the packaging and saw this awesome monolith within. Like 2001: A Space Odyssey, you and your family danced around it, screeching to high heaven. No? Just at mine then? Still – you got that Xbox you wanted, and that’s pretty cool too. Maybe you got the black tower-like Series X, or maybe you received the adorable Series S. Either way, you got it set up (you used the mobile app to do your settings while you waited for…
