Among the first titles purchased with my own money as a boy was Vegas Dream for the NES. As you might expect by the name, it was a gambling game, starting you More »
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Down the Drain
I suppose there’s no harm in admitting I was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan as a kid. I watched the cartoons, collected the action figures, had the PJs and bedclothes, went to see the movies, collected the comics, and of course I had to have the games when they released. As with anyone who...
Remember Me – Better Off Forgotten
What we’ve been seeing with video games over the course of the last few years is a sort of event horizon where there ceases to be a dividing line between a movie and a game, as evidenced by such emergent titles as Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy (with a new title to be soon released...
Frozen Hearth – Some Good, Some Bad
This is a game I was meant to review ages ago, but because of issues I have been having with it I had a mismatch of emotions. Frozen Hearth is an RTS game, with a unique take on your General’s/Hero’s special abilities. As you fight you gain experience points that you can then spend on...
Starbound – 10 Tips from the Beta
While Starbound was not yet officially released I feel obliged to share some of the knowledge gained to help others in furthering their own stations/camps/exploration with the use of these few tips. Starbound is not an easy game, but there are ways of making your life much easier. A more in-depth guide might be written...
Mount and Blade – Calradia Guide
About two months ago I wanted to create a massive guide for a video game. The inspiration came when I worked a bit on my other Fiction-Guides as well as reading on Paradox Interactive’s Amazon books. I thought, “I could do that!” but I needed a topic I knew well, and I also wanted to...
Payday 2 – Weapons Guide
Another Fiction-Guide from myself. In this case I tried to imagine Bain getting in contact with a hardware supplier, in order to obtain guns and other equipment. Those familiar with the game would note how much of this information is accurate and how much of it is fluff. In general I tried to make all...
War Thunder – On Tanks
After seeing those tanks Screenshots for War Thunder I sat back and waited for further updates on tanks. Then came the second update with more tank screenies, but that felt like a Starbound update, meaning, “Nothing substantial, we are still working on it.” It was not until today that one of our readers (iamthelol) pointed...
Payday 2 – Beta Impressions
I enjoyed Payday 1. When I heard that Payday 2 is coming out my first thought was, “They can’t improve it. It’s impossible.”. It’s not that I did not hope we would receive a great sequel, I simply set my expectations very low, so that if the surprise turned out to be sour I would...
Chivalry Medieval Warfare vs War of the Roses
So, you are divided between Chivalry Medieval Warfare and War of the Roses? I understand, it is not an easy choice. Both games have their own strengths and weaknesses and in this article we will compare the two games. I will not tell you outright which one is better or worse, as I found both...
Top 10 Games to get into the Halloween Spirit
The unknown. It is both our greatest fear and the singlemost thing which galvanizes us, which holds our attention, and which inspires us to act. Why are we afraid? Because our imaginations present a million and one possibilities of a reality immeasurably worse than our own. Why are we still attracted to it? Because there...
Top 10 Games to Help Fight the Winter Blues
It’s not uncommon for people to suffer from a little depression during the fall and winter. Maybe not bad enough to be clinically diagnosed, just a muted feeling that turns life down and makes everything seem like so much of a chore. Gamers have more reason to be depressed during winter than most. All the...
League of Legends – Jack of All Trades or Master of One?
Recently I had a rather interesting League of Legends game, one that I lost but I felt lied to by one of the players. This player, who had clearly more experience and game time than me, claimed he never played a specific role, in the team setup. You see, in League of Legends there is...
An Early Look at The Order: 1886
With the success of Playstation 3 exclusives such as Beyond: Two Souls and The Last of Us, Sony is developing a market strategy focusing on the creation of exclusive new intellectual properties in direct opposition to Microsoft’s tendency to utilize multi-platform sequels, and Nintendo’s predilection for the reproduction of intellectual properties from close to thirty...
Cyberpunk 2077 Preview: Welcome to Psycho Squad, Rookie
For those unfamiliar with the subject material, the upcoming video game Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the pen and paper game system Cyberpunk 2020, combining high-tech and low-life elements and a noire style of storytelling in the infamous metropolis Night City. The cyberpunk genre in general focuses on examining the increasingly blurry lines between man...
League of Legends – Teamwork OP
I have been actively playing League of Legends for the past couples of months. Not ranked games, mind you, but normal games (for those who do not play Dota/LoL/HoN, that means non-ranked games, that could be considered “casual”). Even normal games call for a lot of teamwork, individual skill and know-how. Without it there is...
Middle of Nowhere – Teaser Trailer
Some time ago I wrote about Middle of Nowhere, an upcoming Horror Survival game that has that Silent Hill feel. A few days ago the first Teaser Trailer was released, showing a bit of the gameplay mechanics, the monsters and the environments. While it is clear that the game is still a work in progress,...
