Virtuix Omni might be the future of VR

It’s obviously no secret that I’m a fan of virtual reality. It stems from my ongoing love affair with anime like .Hack and Sword Art Online. I dream for the days when we can be fully immersed in video games. Hopefully that immersion doesn’t end badly like it did in .Hack or SAO, but that’s more »

5 Simpsons games to play during the FXX marathon

When you try to think of good licensed games, The Simpsons aren’t really the property that floats to the top of your head. Hell, there are probably at least half a dozen games based on some facet of the Simpsons you haven’t even heard of. The rabbit hole for such a huge cash cow runs more »

Batman Will Defeat Superman In Dawn Of Justice

While most superhero fans are waiting with baited breath and anxiousness for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, I decided to take a look back at what I believe will be the deciding factor when DC’s legendary heroes collide in Zack Snyder’s much anticipated 2016 movie. “But Quinn, you ridiculously scruffy man-nerd, you’re supposed to more »

Jimmy Fallon and Pierce Brosnan played GoldenEye 007

It’s a universal truth that GoldenEye 007 was one of the best games on the N64. Even gamers who wouldn’t normally play first person shooters probably have a GoldenEye 007 moment. I mean, it was so beloved, it even for the DS, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360. And now, we have actual footage of Pierce more »

The case for one-handed RPGs continues

Playing The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky makes me want a new laptop. Mine can run it well; it’s just a huge, clunky beast of a machine and I want to play Trails in bed. I totally could, if I had one of those smaller, touch-based Windows 8 tablet-hybrid thingies. I’m using a more »

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time world record set by CosmoWright

Twitch streamer and speedrunner CosmoWright just annhilated the world record on July 20, 2014. What do I mean by annihilated? How about 18 minutes, ten seconds – or over 19 seconds faster than the previous record? That’s a simply unfathomable amount of time to take off such a well-established and popular game. In a world more »

Hand of Fate Preview: A RPG and cards combo

I love card games. From the simplest ones, like Go Fish, to Sequence, to collector cards like Yu-Gi-Oh!, I have always enjoyed them. They’re great to play with other people, or if you’re a loner you can always play good, ol’ reliable Solitaire. Well, Defiant Development’s new game, Hand of Fate, takes a love of more »

Growing up Sega: Dreamcast and beyond

After trading in the Saturn, we were suddenly Sega-less. There was my step-sister’s Game Gear that never had functioning batteries, but that was it. I was officially a PlayStation gamer. At least, I was for a while. A couple years later, Dad returned to his roots and got a Sega Dreamcast. I played Sonic Adventure, more »

Growing up Sega: Sega Saturn

Sega made one of the biggest mistakes in their history in 1995. I didn’t know it at the time, I’m not sure how many people did, but the first of many terrible decisions was made and it was the beginning of the end. For 1995 was when the came along several months ahead of schedule, more »

I’ll buy a PS4 for RIME, Witness, and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture

I am a huge fan of indie games. I love supporting the “little guy”, so to speak. This adoration has led me to a tough decision. I didn’t have any plans to buy a “next generation” console any time soon, but this year’s indie offerings might make me change my mind. While everyone’s heard of more »

Mad Catz M.O.J.O. $50 off at Amazon

I know we’re all a little skeptical of those Android micro-consoles. I mean, I only bought my Ouya because it ended up being under $50 at Goodwill. Still, if anyone is interested on jumping on this particular bandwagon, it’s a good time to grab a Mad Catz M.O.J.O. from Amazon. Why? Because right now it’s more »

Growing up Sega: Sega-CD and 32X

It wasn’t all Sega, all the time when I was growing up, of course. I remember tagging along with my Dad when he visited a friend, and I saw the SNES for the first time. I spent the entire evening in his living room as my brain was melted by F-Zero. Later on, my uncle, more »
