Returning to the original God of War is Tough

blank God of War is a hallowed series, there’s no doubt about it. Spoken about in hushed tones, remembered fondly and regularly as the definition of a PlayStation classic. And rightly so. But those original games haven’t aged particularly well, and are made worse for how hard they are to play decently. That’s not to say the effort isn’t worth it. If you’re happy to laugh at a few cheesy mini-games or poorly put together cutscenes, you’ll have a great time.…


More Thoughts From Me #265: Closing Down the (Digital) Shop

blank This week we got rumors that the PS3/PSP/Vita digital stores will be shutting down this year. Usually I do not report or even talk about rumors. That said, the closing of those shops will happen sooner or later! What do I think of digital stores closing? Let’s dig into it. Its always tough when digital store fronts close down. We all know why this happens: digital stores take up server space for companies. They cost money to keep up and…


‘Never Be Game Over’: Inside the Community Still Trying to Solve Metal Gear Solid V’s Biggest Mysteries

blank There are a small but dedicated group still trying to find meaning in Metal Gear Solid V’s biggest mysteries. There aren’t many of them, but five years on they’re still trying to work out the hidden secrets that will – they hope – fill in the game’s blanks. “Never Be Game Over” is a subreddit that has more than 15,000 subscribers, and since its creation they have broken down the game to its very core in the hopes that suddenly…


Top 5 Youtube Video Game Channels

blank I’ve been watching a lot of Youtube Video Game Channels lately. I especially love hearing about retro video games, but even new stuff is cool too. So without further ado, here are my top 5 youtube video game channels! Oh and if you don’t want to read it, there’s a youtube video with me reading all this (though you’ll miss the youtube links if you don’t read too. heh). Just a note that everyone should include! This is my opinion…


Metal Gear Solid 4 is (mostly) a masterpiece – so why is it so hard to play?

blank Metal Gear Solid 4 is about the most next-gen game you can imagine. Your suit automatically changes textures to match its backgrounds. There are epic gunfights that you can use to blend into the background, or you can choose to change the ebb of battle to gain allies. That’s before we even mention that epic moustache, still unsurpassed in games or cinema. It’s next-gen in every way you can name, except that it’s 12 years old. Created by Konami, regarded…


On the Road to Delos Crossing: The Evolution of Adventure Games

blank It wasn’t that long ago that adventure games meant solving obscure puzzles and impossible save states. The genre has changed immeasurably over the last 30 years, but that doesn’t mean the key ingredients aren’t still there. With the release of Tell Me Why, we’re looking back at the biggest titles, and at why we still love adventure all these years later. Tell Me Why takes the genre to new heights, building a realistic world with fascinating characters. The adventure ...


Cars 3: Driven to Win Review in Progress Part 1

blank It only took a couple minutes for me to fall in love with Cars 3: Driven to Win, and although I can easily say it's no Mario Kart - and really, what cartoon racing game really is - I think it's an equally good alternative for those who perhaps prefer Cars over Mario, or those who do not own a Nintendo Switch. We are looking at the game on both of Nintendo's current platforms for this review: the Nintendo Switch, and the Nintendo Wii U!


WB Live a First for Warner Bros at E3

blank Nintendo Treehouse always seems to get the most press and accolades at E3 events, but this year, other publishers are getting in on the continues streaming action. For the first time at E3, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is showing live footage of various important people playing some of their upcoming titles. What had me captivated for much of the afternoon was the LEGO Dimensions coverage!


Sony Exclusives on Point

blank Sony hit it home this E3 with games galore, which is what most people are looking for at an E3 Briefing. All the big PlayStation franchises are heading back to the system, including God of War, Shadow of the Colossus, Monster Hunter, and more. While their presentation itself could have used some spicing up, the content was there.


Cars: Driven to Win Launching 06/13

blank My excitement for Pixar games is pretty none-existent, but my seven year old son goes bananas for these types of games. Just recently, I was showing him the teaser trailer for Cars: Driven to Win and decided to capture a few of his observations in a short article as we move towards launch day next Tuesday, June 13th.
