E3 2015 Preview: King’s Quest

  One of the games I was most looking forward to seeing at E3 this year was King’s Quest. I was a huge fan of Sierra Adventure games when I was in high school from King’s Quest to Quest for Glory and Space Quest. Pretty much all of their Quest titled games. And Conquest of […]

E3 2015 Day Three

And here we are on the last day of the show. Because I am a creature of habit I started off the day playing Street Fighter V. I played several times today with some wins and some losses but I got on every chance I got because this thing isn’t coming out until March next […]

E3 2015 Day Two

Alright so E3 Day Two began in much the same way as Day One did if you omit the useless line waiting for 45 minutes and jump right to me playing Street Fighter V. Another difference is that I stomped my opponent hard enough that his ancestors will feel it so any day I can […]

E3 2015 Ubisoft Press Conference

I have been to most of the various press conferences at E3 over the years (thanks for nothing Sony), but the Ubisoft conference this year was definitely the best one I have been to yet. Right out of the gates they surprised me and it kept getting better. As with the Xbox conference I am […]

Injustice – Gods Among Us glitch

This is a rather old glitch that I found, but I was going through my youtube channel and watched it again, then felt the need to share it with the world once more. There are some amazing glitches in the world, and then there are really strange ones. While dicking around with some of the […]

Borderlands 2 Shenanigans

I’m not a gamer who likes to play with others very often. One of the very few games that I’ve enjoyed co-op on has been Borderlands 2. I play this with a very good friend of mine, and we spend much of the time talking shit to one another and generally fucking around. But I […]

3DS

Reposted from nerdmobile.wordpress.com (here) I’m not wholly impressed with 3D technology, and I haven’t ever been. Not when they tried it the first time, and not every time they’ve tried it since. It’s a gimmick, a piece of slightly stale candy that gets thrown out at the public every so often to make people think […]

PS Vita – Initial Review

Reposted from nerdmobile.wordpress.com (here) I talk a lot about Xbox, and I’ve spoken briefly about the Wii, and there’s some chatter about the DS, but I haven’t put hands on a Sony instrument for gaming since the PS2. This was a thing that apparently needed to be corrected, as a supporter and now-sponsor of this […]

Sunset Overdrive Xbox One Review

Summary [9.5 out of 10] Hands down the most fun game I have played in years, Sunset Overdrive is a pastiche of near perfect game styles wrapped in a bright package and then drenched with genuinely funny humor. This game, which puts the player in the role of a survivor of a city wide mutant […]

365 Days Without Skyrim

  Like the title says, I have gone 365 days without Skyrim. Now, what might not be clear is that I have not even OPENED Skyrim yet. It’s still in the plastic, in fact. Sitting there. Mocking me. I started the day count as a kind of a joke. Like a junkie waiting for that […]

Alien Isolation Xbox One Review

Summary [8.0 out of 10] The answer to anyone who asked why we couldn’t just have a scary Alien game after Aliens Colonial Marines, Alien Isolation takes things back to the feel of the first movie with one Alien and very few resources on hand to deal with it. What it amounts to is a […]

The Evil Within Xbox One Review

Summary [8.0 out of 10] A promising start to a new potential franchise, The Evil Within gets back to the horror roots of survival horror while providing a mostly engaging story with strong game play and visuals. Uneven difficulty hamstrings the game somewhat, however, and the controls can get in the way of proper command […]

Games That Are Good For October (or any time, really)

Still sticking with that Halloween theme, I thought it would be a good time to talk about five games that I am in love with. This isn’t really a “best of” list, so these games are presented in no particular order. They’re just games that I really enjoyed playing. They just so happen to coincide […]

E3 2014 Preview: Payday 2 Big Bank DLC

One of my favorite games of last year was Payday 2. I played a ton of it with fellow Buzz Media editor Charles and we had a pretty regular group going on Live with play sessions that would stretch much longer into the night than any of us expected with ‘shit I almost leveled, lets […]

E3 2014 Preview: Assassin’s Creeed Unity

Keeping up with the yearly updates of Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft is offering up a new iteration this year that moves the action from pirating to the French Revolution. Given how uneven the Assassin’s Creed series has been, I went into this meeting, which ended up being a private gameplay demo, with a lot of trepidation. […]

E3 2014 Preview: Dragon Age Inquisition

Dragon Age Inquisition was at the absolute top of my must see list for this E3 but scheduling did not look like it was going to allow for it. Thankfully, I had the right window and EA was kind enough to let me squeeze in to see it. Mirroring my experience with Mass Effect 3 […]
