Minecraft deserves to be popular

I’ve gotten just about nothing done today, work wise. That’s because I’ve been spending the past several hours playing Minecraft. It’s such a fantastic game that it really deserves the popularity it’s gotten. I mean, where else can you spend five hours re-creating a giant wing-wong out of iron blocks?

I like to believe I trust Telltale Games. The developer clearly knows what it’s doing, with hits like The Walking Dead, Sam & Max, Fables, and, most recently, Game of Thrones.

They upped the number to 10, so Light and Dark could be added to the mix. While this may make sense, since the more »

10 Best Dragon Age Inquisition fanfiction prompts

It started out as a joke. I was one of those people who wrote fanfiction in high school, and sometimes I like to brainstorm ideas for stories I’d want to read. That’s what I was doing on Twitter a few days ago, coming up with ridiculous, Dragon Age Inquisition fanfiction ideas. Except, some of these more »

While our review of Guilty Gear Xrd: SIGN spends a bit more time in the lab, I’ve taken it upon myself to toss out a few thoughts here and there on the game. Little things, you know? There’s always so much to take in with a new Guilty Gear, and this brand-spanking new entry lays more »

Bet you never thought you’d see Steins;Gate on PS3, Vita

I never in a million years would have expected this announcement, but I guess this is the way games are going.

Alien Isolation Nightmare and Novice Modes make it more inviting

I really like the idea of Alien Isolation. And by that, I mean I love the idea of a game where you have to hide and truly stealth around, because trying to be a big bad gun bunny will result in you getting torn limb from limb. The truth is, however, that I’m really bad more »
