Saints Row 2 is more inspired than The Third

I finished the original Saints Row and Saints Row 2 and remember them both very fondly; I was excited when the hub-bub around The Third started to get rolling as the game looked like more over-the-top, don’t-take-your-too-seriously shenanigans that made 1 and 2 so much fun in the first place. When it came time to […]

Thoughts on Finishing Killzone 2

Whenever the sequel to a big-budget game comes out, and I haven’t played the original, I try and make the time to go back and play it just so I can figure out what is going on. That happened with Crysis this week (in preparation of Crysis 2) and Killzone 2 (in preparation for Killzone […]

My Thoughts on Finishing the Original Crysis

SPOILER WARNING: I am discussing my thoughts on finishing Crysis (finally) so spoilers will be present. I bought Crysis a year or so after it came out via EA’s online store and as much media as I had consumed before the game’s release, I was still blown away by the graphics. I played the game […]

SFW: Porn Reveals the Truth about Men and Women

This article is safe for work; I am just pointing you to another article over at The Atlantic that might be NSFW just because of language. The article is called “Hard Core” by Natasha Vargas-Cooper.

Why is Photography like Firearms?

I’ve been looking into getting into the DSLR game (possibly with a 60D, more on that later) and I’ve noticed a trend with photograph: it feels a lot like firearms. It started with the words first: shooting, e.g. “I shot some great pics at the event!” firing, e.g. “The flash didn’t fire on time.” blow, […]

Thoughts on Windows 7 After 3 Days

Introduction It is no mystery that I’ve been part of the parade yelling “Vista Sucks!” since it’s inception – I’ve even taken the time to review Vista’s shortcomings for everyone willing to read it by only taking a look at changes in one program as an example of the half-assed decisions made throughout the entire […]

IGN Game Reviewers Love Everything

Reading through the Kotaku “Frankenreview” series over the last year or so I’ve unscientifically noticed a trend… IGN seems to love most everything. I noticed with high profile titles more time than not IGN tends to love them and in polarizing titles they also tend to lean towards the upper-end of the scale. There are […]

Killzone 2 Gameplay Video Not Selling Me

I don’t know if I’m just worn out seeing shooters that are technically beautiful but lack the micro-bits of polish that are the difference between “meh” and “holy shit”… I think these bits of polish are video-games equivalent of getting over the Uncanny Valley.

Mass Effect Mini: Some Glaring Annoyances

Chris Hunkele sent in a mini-review of his experience with Mass Effect so far and I thought it was important to share it with the group because it helped quelled the “I must have that!” fire in me.
