Gamer Culture

Gamers have a unique and diverse culture within our society.  We tend to do things a little differently, and that's why we have this corner Cinelinx set aside specifically for them.  This section will feature articles dealing specifically with that culture and the integration of video games into every day life. 

Why I'm Done With Fallout 4

After spending plenty of time in the wasteland, harvesting crops, developing a settlement and surviving all manner of things meant to kill me, I'm done with Fallout 4. No, not the story, not even close to all the side quests...but I'm done nonetheless.

Sony’s Paris Games Week Conference Didn’t Disappoint

There was an odd shake up in the schedule for the leading giants in the video game industry this year. Microsoft decided to skip the Tokyo Game Show, while Sony decided to skip GamesCom. By doing so they wanted to spread out throughout the year and hit the other events harder. In return we got a rather good showcase from Microsoft at GamesCom, and Sony surprised us at a rather lesser known event in Paris Games Week. How good was Sony’s conference? Well let’s look into it.

PS4 Updates We Would Like Sony To Look At

There is a survey floating around the internet from Sony that asks what updates feel important for future software versions of the PS4. Of the list include PS2 classics, name changes, and background customization which are all grand ole ideas, but could Sony dive deeper? We think so and came up with a list of ideas Sony should actually look into, and why a few of the items on the list should be priority.

The Best Mechanics Of Horror Games We Love

It’s October and you know what that means! Besides The Walking Dead, it means Halloween or Dia de los Muertos is close! At Cinelinx we want to celebrate this month by talking about our favorite horror games, or games in relation to the holiday. Today we want to discuss what makes games so scary, or why you probably couldn’t sleep for 5 nights after playing some games. So sit back and check out some methods games use to make you pee your pants!

Messy Canon: The Odd Continuity of Star Wars Gaming

When Lucasfilm announced the Star Wars Story Group and the subsequent dismissal of the previous Star Wars Expanded Universe, the primary claim was that "Everything Going Forward is Part of the Star Wars Canon." For the most part, this has been the case but there are some messy aspects this 'new canon' as well, particularly in the video game department.  Let's see if we can't sort some of this out.

Top 5 Metal Gear Solid Boss Battles

With Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain now unleashed upon us, we think it's a great time to look back at some of the most iconinc boss battles the franchise has thrown our way over the last couple decades.  Come inside to see if your favorite made the cut! 

Destiny's The Taken King Should Be An Industry Standard

A lot of people were rather angry when Destiny first released. It sold a ton of copies and still has a lot of players to this day, but a widespread outcry took place when people noticed the lacking content. Many people figured it was locked away due to DLC releases, but even those were rather lacking. Yet here we all are, super excited for the new expansions. The truth is, Destiny is doing something right and this expansion deserves a lot of credit for something more than the game.

One of Sony's Only PS4 Exclusives this Fall Isn't Getting Enough Marketing

It has been well documented that Sony has a rather lackluster Fall lineup of games this year.  In terms of exclsuives they have virtually nothing until next year, and even Sony themselves have stepped out to talk about it.  So why aren't they pushing hard on the games they DO have coming this Fall?
