Paranautical Activity dev threatens Gabe Newell, gets punished

Paranautical Activity launched and was removed on Steam on October 20, 2014. That might as well be the epitaph on its tombstone, because it was removed the same day. If you blinked, you probably missed it. Is that a record for a game being pulled from Steam, by the way? For those not familiar with Paranautical Activity, more »

Taking a quick look at Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Having purchased Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel last night via a discount code that will be expiring in just a few hours, I got up a little early this morning for an hour of gameplay. What I found was a mixture of the familiar and the new. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel seems to be built around the Borderlands more »

Borderlands 2 is one of the best games to come along in years. It has a wicked sense of humor, great voice acting, memorable characters, fun weapons and powers, and the list goes on and on. It’s something fun I can do with my friends. I like to during Steam sales and keep them in more »

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! might have the best skill trees ever

Building a character tree is hard, especially if you want to build one so players can go through and fight the way they want to.

I play Destiny in spite of the multiplayer

I hate multiplayer, or at least online multiplayer. Actually playing video games with friends on the couch is great. Online multiplayer is basically a relentless, ongoing bar fight. Oddly, I’m enjoying the hell out of Destiny… even though it’s only reinforcing why I dislike multiplayer.

Bungie needed a better Destiny

Like a lot of gamers, I got Destiny on Tuesday, and have been playing it off and on ever since. It’s an interesting game, but it’s also one with a lot of seams that it’s a little surprising they didn’t clean up. First of all, Destiny‘s obvious past as an MMO, probably built on microtransactions, more »
