Call Of Duty: Black Ops Given Honor Of Best Game Ending By Guinness

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Given Honor Of Best Game Ending By Guinness

We all know what the Guinness book of world records is, and now we know that Guinness may not be the fairest in giving away it’s honors. The bearer of world records announced that Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops has been given the crown of best video game ending of all time. Guinness states that the first person war shooter leads in the top 50 list "voted for by 13,519 fans of gaming". 

It’s...very debatable. Both fans and gamers in general agree that Black Ops is not nearly deserving of the title. To make the situation worse, obvious candidates like Final Fantasy VII, Ocarina of Time, Halo, Portal 2, and many more are all on this list somewhere. Yes, opinions are opinions but if more gamers had participated in the vote, I’m sure we could have put a more fitting, and universally agreeable title at the top of this list. Personally I would have liked to see one of the Legend of Zelda games at the top of the list, or perhaps Final Fantasy X. I’d even be ok with Portal 2!

Maybe more of us should get out and vote, eh? What video game endings do you think are deserving of the "best video game ending of all time" honor? Let us know in the comments below!

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.

What's The Big Deal About Mortal Kombat X Anyways?

What's The Big Deal About Mortal Kombat X Anyways?

Well everyone, Mortal Kombat X is now available to be purchased (which I’m sure you have done) and if you keep up with video game news (which I’m sure you do), you would know that almost every single day in the lead up to its release, we were hearing about a new trailer, character reveal, or some sort of news regarding the upcoming game. I have to hand it to Mortal Kombat X’s marketing team, they did their job; it seems like every person on the planet is hyped about this game (which I’m sure you are).

But aside from a good marketing campaign, what’s the big deal about Mortal Kombat X anyways?

Apple's Most Personal Device - This Year

Apple's Most Personal Device - This Year

  Apple has finally lifted the curtain on the Apple Watch and, unsurprisingly, it looks good.  Maybe you're crunching the numbers to determine if you can afford the $13,000, 38mm 18-carat rose gold case edition or the $449.00 sport model.  No matter what you pick you'll need an Apple iPhone 5 or later running the latest version of iOS, so don't forget to figure that into the cost as well.  Before taking out a line of credit to buy the latest and greatest from Apple I'd recommend holding off and avoiding the April 24th release date altogether.

Why We Need the Worst Game Ever

Why We Need the Worst Game Ever

Maybe it wouldn't have been as bad if the sales person hadn't said, "this is our most popular seller; I can barely keep it on the shelves."  My mother and I were in the only video game store in the city.  It was in the basement of a professional building and smelled like stale cigarette smoke and BO.  For passing grade five I was rewarded with a video game.  This wasn't a decision to be made lightly; this would be one of the two games I'd get all year.  I can no longer remember the game I originally wanted but I do remember the store didn't have it.  Instead, the sales person was recommending something I'd never heard of, a little game called "Mystery Quest."
