Taking Fandom Personal – The Need For Thick Skins

A troubling, and growing, trend continues to present itself within the fan community, and I'm struggling to grasp the reason why.  For a culture just a decade or so ago who had to endure constant ridicule from others, nerds these days seem to have ridiculously thin skin for their beloved properties.  Let's talk about it. 

5 Other Games I’d Rather See Get a Wii U HD...

Nintendo kicked off their first post-Iwata Direct last night with the announcement of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD coming to the Wii U. While it's nice to see Nintendo give more games the re-master treatment, I feel like there are some better options than another Zelda title.  Let's take a look at some.

Video Games That Can Win GOTY, But Not An Oscar

With the Oscars this weekend I thought it would be fun to look at movies that were snubbed from them and translate them to video games. When I followed the Oscars closely I noticed movies would be snubbed for such lame excuses. Putting it lightly, if your movie is a big blockbuster event… It will probably be ignored.

Lord of the Rings somehow fought through it all to win, but for the most part this stands true. So what games would win Game of the Year(GOTY), but wouldn’t win an Oscar?

Evolve Preview: Seriously Awesome Fun

I’ve gotten a chance to play Evolve several times now, including the two testing phases it went through. The first reveal was rather awesome, but I wanted to see more. That is when I got into the first testing phase, and let’s just say it didn’t work. Then I was invited to participate in the second phase and my goodness am I glad I got invited to this one! I think I had the game booted up the entire time it was playable, and I was sad when it said “sorry, it’s over.”

The Best Horror Games: Doom 3

It’s October and that means lots of tricks, treats, and of course horror fun! The movie industry isn’t the only industry that gets to have all the horror fun as the video game industry has put out a few charms as well. So the first thing I thought of was highlighting some of those great games. The first game that came to my mind? Doom 3.
