1-Titanfall-002

Titanfall gets a lot of love.  It also gets a lot of hate.  Specifically, critical gamers have been worried that the market too readily accepted a game that seemed only half finished at launch.  There has been significant fear that this may set a precedent for future AAA launches: too much “shut up and take my money,” not enough “hard to get.”  This may be one of the reasons why Steve Fukuda, Game Director of Titanfall, took to the eponymous website to thank gamers for being patient, and to promise, among other things, that development would carry on.

Oscar Nominated Movies Which Deserve A Video Game Tie-In

The Oscars are almost here but where are the video games based on these films that have made the cut to be part of the 86th Academy Awards?  I decided that if the Hollywood brain trust can't develop appropriate video game tie-ins with their biggest and best films then I'd have to do their work for them.   Read more

DLC Talk: Dishonored - The Knife of Dunwall

Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall is an impressive little bit of DLC. I should emphasize “little” though, as it is a relatively short experience. Just when the story seems to get going it ends - or, rather, it “kind of” ends.

Why Super Nintendo VS Sega Genesis is a lot like PS4 VS Xbox One

The video game press and blogosphere didn’t really know what to make of the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One when they were announced last year.  Most of this confusion seemed to stem from the fact that no one really knew for sure if these next-generation video game consoles would offer the player anything new.  Yes, there would be better graphics, better online functionality, a better multimedia experience, and a better controller, but would that be it?

'Goat Simulator' is Live! You can Virtually Live as a Goat!

I’ve often thought that what the animal rights movement really needs are some rocking simulations of animal life.  I’m not sure Goat Simulator will offer that (I’m still downloading it), but think about this: imagine teaching a grade seven science class where you hook your students up to Oculus Rift VR sets, fix them with some haptic arm and leg bands, and send them out to join a wolf pack stalking caribou in the arctic tundra (Dire Wolf!).
