The Forest: Exclusive Game Focus Interview

  Earlier this week, Ben Falcone and Anna Terekhova, two of the three main developers of Endnight Games’ The Forest responded to some questions I had about the project and provided some insight into the development and what comes next.  I asked everything from whether or not The Forest would be released on the Xbox One or Playstation 4, what the developers were most worried about before release on Steam, to whether or not they could disclose any more details about The Forests ending.

Marking The Mid-Point of 2014: Highs, Lows and Hopes

  Here we are at the half way point of 2014. According to the Chinese zodiac 2014 is the year of the horse; the wood horse. It is to be a year of conflict; wood will fuel the fires and lead many to clash headlong into battle. How fitting it is then that my video game highlights, disappointments, hopes, and dreams for the year are directly in conflict with one another: Lightning quick interfaces vs a lack of new-gen experiences, game costs vs value, PlayStation vs Xbox.   Read more

CFL Mode in Madden 15? Please Make it Happen EA.

  Maybe it’s my Canadian pride and the fact that Canada Day is just around the corner, but I want a CFL football game.  For you folks out there who don’t know what the CFL is, well it’s a sports league, it stands for: Canadian Football League.  That’s right, Canada has its own football league, and trust me, it’s a good one.  So good, in fact, it deserves its own video game.   Read more

DLC Talk: Bioshock: Burial at Sea Ep. 1

Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?

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.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Behind the Scenes Trailer Review

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Behind the Scenes Trailer Review

 

I just watched a behind the scenes trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and I cannot be more upset from what I have seen.  I should preface this rant by saying that I think Bret Robbins (the “Creative Director” who is talking throughout the sneak peek) doesn’t have any clue as to what the Call of Duty series is about. Am I supposed to be impressed by the “cinematic” nature of a future Call of Duty game and am I supposed to unfold the game’s plot like some kid who has been given a gift and will “unwrap it.”  Does Activision even know what makes these games work, or is it just me?

Hockey Nerds Unite!  Why Advanced Hockey Stats Should be in EA's NHL 15

The last couple years the hockey world has seen the rise of advanced hockey statistics (Corsi, Fenwick, PDO).  While not everyone in the "hockey world" is convinced of advanced hockey stats and their relevance in the game, you cannot deny their presence and the debate these so-called advanced stats create in the game’s analysis. Which is why EA's NHL series needs to include advanced hockey stats, pronto!

5 Best Games with a Social Message

5 Best Games with a Social Message

 

With the release of Watch Dogs this week and it’s striking social commentary on the power a surveillance state can wield over a population, and how that power can be used in nefarious ways, I began to think about video games as a means to get across some sort of critical social commentary. Video games as a medium often cower away from saying anything too controversial and often try to appeal to the widest demographic possible in an attempt to attract the most sales.  But I think it’s time to celebrate those games that took a risk and said something different.  It’s high time that more video games take their context and their subject more critically.  I want video games that are about something dangerous, something divisive, something that reflects our world in a critical way and I want them now!
