More Thoughts From Me #10: Video Games Don’t Need Stories
One of my early entries to this column said that every video game needed a story. Now I’m back to give you the opposite position: Video Games don’t need stories! Tetris, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros, and many other games do not have stories. After my last article about video games needing stories, I had some people say, ” Ya, but this game doesn’t have one.” And its true. Not all video games need stories. In fact, I’ll just…

First Few Hours of Just Cause 3
I received a copy of Just Cause 3 a few days ahead of its December 1st launch and realized one thing really quickly: the story in this game is pretty bad, but that does not matter in the slightest. Do not get me wrong, this game is outstanding and anyone picking up a Just Cause title for the story is doing it wrong. Reality check: Just Cause 3 is all about explosions, bigger explosions, and incredibly and physically impossible explosions. Explosions, explosions, explosions.

Performance Design Products is not just about the Afterglow brand.

Witcher III: Heart of Stone Expansions Launches
If you've played the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt then you know how great of a game it is. We scored it incredibly high on Games Reviews, and have been looking forward to the DLC for a long while. CD Projekt Red has produced one of the best DLC launches every by a developer, with tons of free content already being made available. So when CD Projekt Red promises 10 more hours of content for 9.99, I'm completely OK with making that purchase.

NHL 16 Early Impressions, Issues with other Reviews
NHL 16 is a fabulous NHL game, probably the best EA NHL title to date. However, building off EA's first next (current) generation title, NHL 15, wasn't hard. EA learned from NHL 15 and provided a new, better product for hockey fans around the world.
Disney Infinity 3.0 Toys Top of the Class, Almost
Toys-to-life games often take more time to fully review. Generally, content is almost always open ended - leaving reviewers wondering where to stop - and as a result, there is a lot to look at and experience. There is one thing, however, that is often overlooked in reviews when it comes to Disney Infinity, Skylanders, and amiibo: the look of the figures. Disney Infinity 3.0 provides the best character models yet in the Disney Infinity franchise
Disney Infinity 3.0 after 60 Minutes
For the longest time, I often would determine my level of interest in a game after sixty minutes. Growing up, I rented a lot of video games, all of which had to pass the sixty minute test before I would buy it from the store. As a reviewer, I technically can't have a sixty minute barometer - I must review the entire game. However, I often still use my sixty minute rule, even if I plan to play the whole game. With the release of Disney Infinity, the the almost impossible ability to adequately review everything in one 'review,' I've decided to share my thoughts on Disney Infinity 3.0 after - you guessed it! - sixty minutes.
