I consider myself a reasonable(ish) person, one who’s usually slow to anger unless I’m navigating THOSE FREAKING MEDUSA HEADS in Castlevania . Whenever a company makes a business decision I don’t agree with, I try to look at it objectively and think of the many reasons why it could be a good thing, and why they thought they should go ahead with their plan...

It's that time of year again - a time for holiday happiness, heartfelt hospitality, and of course, hefty humbugs from the Scrooges among us. If that last one sounds like you, then you're in luck, because I've got a sure-fire way for you to give a little Christmas cheer this year while still being a complete jerk to all around! So before you head out for y...

Metal Gear Solid, Konami and 7 more...
With Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain just coming out, a lot of people are likely going back and enjoying the first four Metal Gear Solid games for the second or third or twenty-sixth time, taking in the sights and sounds and over-the-top boss fights that have long set the series apart from its peers. While I haven't actually done that, I still thou...

So I did one of these last year, and...wait, has it really already been a year since E3 2014? Because it doesn't feel like it. But indeed it has, and this year was chock full of surprises and megaton announcements topped off with a helping of new IPs and twists on the familiar. With what we saw, most of us probably wanted a place to gush about the things...

Mini Steam Game Reviews 2: 50% Off Reviews!

Posted by Venom, 24 March 2015 - - - - - - · 1,178 views

So, a while back, I (and some others) wrote up some mini reviews for various Steam games, and the entries were such a rousing success [citation needed] that I decided to write a second one! So if you're in the market for some miniature Steam reviews without actually reading user reviews on Steam (and no one would blame you) come on in and have a quick loo...

So I Gotta Rant: No Opps for Co-Ops

Greetings again, one and all, and welcome to the madly misguided musings of me, the man of many misadventures, Venom! (I had to stop alliterating at SOME point.) As you probably don't know, I sometimes decide to rant about gaming-related things that bug me, and this is where I do it, so hold on tight and get ready for an all-out self-entitled assault of g...

Bad Boxes Hiding Great Games

Video game box art. In this day and age, it's not something that people really pay much attention to anymore, mostly because the majority of boxes are populated by Generic Space Marine Guy #4112 or Scantily Clad Bikini Lady #894,722. Even so, its function remains as important as ever - to give someone taking their first look at the box a general idea of h...

Review: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

and 10 more...
Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures is in a bit of an odd spot - it's a licensed game, which usually means trouble, but the show it's based on is itself based on an established gaming icon. Does it overcome the stigma of licensed games to earn a spot in the collection of every Pac-Maniac, or is this ghostly adventure haunted by its status as a tie-in prod...

Game Titles Revised For Accuracy Part 32¼: The Revisering

Posted by Venom, 21 June 2014 - - - - - - · 975 views
video games, parody, fun
Alright, I've been wanting to do another one of these for a while, but I wanted to write some other stuff to space these "Revised for Accuracy" entries apart. Now that that's out of the way, I figured "why not dip back into that same old well again?" "Why not see how much longer I can stretch out this joke before no one cares anymore?" "Why not ask the sa...
