Game awards are usually turgid affairs, filled with meaningless waffle about how awesome games are and a bunch of men in suits pleasuring themselves over how they’re totally artists and not at all soulless, out-of-touch, corporate stooges who take pride in nickel-and-diming. To that I defiantly say nay! If I’m going to give out some […]

After something of an inconspicuous start it seems that this console generation is starting to pick up some steam, courtesy of the two biggest names in the business. The PS4, dominant for much of this first part, has had some serious missteps, while Xbox under Phil Spencer seems more determined than ever to win back […]

★★★★ Developer: Nerial Publisher: Devolver Digital Platform: PC, Mac, iOS, Android   I’ve never been a very big fan of Tinder or anything of its ilk. It’s probably killed any chance I had of a love life, but, to me at least, the idea of instantly judging someone based on a (probably fake) picture of […]

By the time you read this the good people at Sony Interactive Entertainment will probably have announced the PS4 Neo, along with a new slim model of the original PS4, at a media event in New York.

All through the gaming community, the hype for this game was beyond anything I have seen […]

Just a few weeks ago, the finals of the Street Fighter V tournament at the Evolution Championship Series (Evo) were broadcast live on ESPN2. I cannot possibly describe how big of a deal this is. Evo is the world’s largest e-sports event for fighting games and those who make it to the finals are, without […]

Valve Corporation is a company that seems to be almost universally admired in spite of all the mistakes they make. Making consistently high quality games and offering incredible discounts on a store filled with almost every game imaginable is certainly a good way to get in the good books of gamers, but trust is not […]

Mobile games aren’t exactly my forte. Normally they are something I despise immensely, particularly since the major mobile storefronts are filled with micro-transaction-laden money sinks, cheap knockoffs of said money sinks, and broken ports of triple-A games. It also doesn’t help that I have a Windows Phone and can’t afford to upgrade. It is for […]
