Let’s appreciate Skyrim’s Apocrypha being a hot mess

There are, of course, a large number of things in Skyrim that are wonderfully done. The combat is fun, the fact that you can play it as a hack and slash or a stealth game is great, and the variety of armor and weapons is fantastic. Something that doesn’t get talked about much, or at more »

I Keep Starting New Games In Skyrim

Skyrim is such an amazing, open ended game that you have a huge variety of ways to play it. I’ve already mentioned how various mods allow for greater role-playing potential, and when you add that to what’s already there, there’s a never ending . The downside of this is that I’ve only beaten Skyrim once, more »

These are Virtuix’s first four Omni games

A while back, I talked a bit about the Virtuix Omni, one of the first fully immersive gaming platforms. Players use a headset like the Oculus Rift (), and the Omni’s most important part, its platform that you walk on with specially designed shoes. The Virtuix Omni allows people to walk naturally in virtual reality, more »

X-Men: Days of Future Past makes me want to play the X-Men arcade game

The title almost says it all. I saw X-Men: Days of Future Past today because there’s a second run theater near me. For three dollars, I’ll see just about anything. I liked the movie, it had a lot of good things about it, including the absolute best visual representation of super-speed ever. It also had more »

Square Enix bringing Dragon Quest to the perfect platform

Yeah, so, I like Dragon Quest a lot. Sometimes it’s hard to tell is Square Enix does too. On one hand, we got a weird-but-somehow-still-fun port of Dragon Quest 8 on mobile platforms. On the other, the 3DS has had like 3 awesome Dragon Quest remakes that have yet to leave Japan. Being a fan more »

PAX 2014: Bloodborne is the fast-paced Souls game you want

  I didn’t even realize I wanted Bloodborne. I like the Dark Souls series but they’re the type of game that I have to be in the right frame of mind to play. Each time I attempted both Dark Souls games, I gave up too soon. I eventually came back to the first one about a year more »

Buy the 3DS and Wii U Super Smash Bros, get music!

I don’t have a Wii U (it’s hard getting electricity out here in my mystical glade, and fairy dust only powers things for so long), but if I did, Super Smash Bros would be on my to-buy list. It’s definitely on my to-buy list for my 3DS. This is because Nintendo has always delivered a more »

I can’t wait for Rogue in Marvel Heroes

If you’ve never played Marvel Heroes, it’s a lot of fun. It can be best summarized as” , but with Marvel”. I have almost all the characters they offer for play, and each one plays differently while managing to play much like you’d expect. That’s not an easy thing, so the developers deserve massive amounts more »

Doctor Who visiting Minecraft on Xbox 360s

That’s right! The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft is soon to feature some awesome Doctor Who content. It warms my heart to see Doctor Who invade yet another platform that I just so happily happen to own. Starting in September 2014, Microsoft will release skin packs that will include Doctors, companions, and villains from Doctor more »

I keep playing Minecraft instead of working

Now that I’m a highly paid writer for a high quality gaming site, I have certain expectations placed upon me. No longer can I simply run free amongst the mists of my magical glade, allowing the spray of water from the nearby river to coat my voluptuous body with a fine sheen. No longer can more »
