Certain games suck you in. You get absorbed into the story, the mechanics, the physics, the advanced techniques and tricks. Before you know it, you’re playing one, or a few games and only those games. It may be for certain achievements, or to best opponents, or for a challenge. I admit that fighting games tend to do this for me. I get caught up in the mec...

When I initially wrote this, it was the end of August, and there were various articles mentioning the rather terrible treatment gamers and people were giving each other. And this stuff is still happening...

Exploits, glitches, techniques and 3 more...
Mario Kart 8 was released late May. Among all of the Luigi Death Stare fun, a new technique called “Fire Hopping” has emerged. Basically, you hop at the end of a boost in order to maintain that boost. Those that can pull off the technique can therefore maintain a boost for a slightly longer period of time. The gaming community tends to have split attitu...

Someone wrote a book about one of the most memorable moments in fighting game history . Yeah, there’s a book about a single event. EVO moment 37 is, as the article states, “equivalent perhaps to sports legends like The Catch from the 1982 NFC Championship Game, Babe Ruth’s “called shot” in 1932 or the U.S. men’s hockey team’s Miracle on Ice at the 1980 Ol...


War and Death on Storytelling

Time for a different kind of post. One not just about the gaming industry, but an element of the games themselves: storytelling.

There’s always this element of the audience trying to feel like they can relate to the character that they are playing. The goal is for the audience to care about the main character during their quest. This is true for most med...

With the newest consoles having been released by November of 2013, the latest generation of gaming is now in full swing. There is a lot of talk about how each system does not have standout games, but rest assured, those games are being made. But the new generation has just started, and while the last one is still going, it’s a good time to look back and s...

Some time ago, I found this great story , which tells the tale of a father playing video games with his kids, and how each generation of gamers will have their own perceptions as to what is a good game to them. Each generation of gamers will have their own classics and standards that they use, and the games that defined said standards.

The dictionary def...

I was lucky enough to go to Distant Worlds this year, on October 6th! It is a concert of just Final Fantasy music. You read that right, just Final Fantasy music, but completely performed by an orchestra! I was rather surprised at how excited I was to go to this concert, because I’m usually not one to go to them. Since this was an orchestra, people showed...

It has been a while. I had to get settled into school once again, so that took priority over this. But now I’m back, and ready to talk about gaming. With that, let’s go back to the past and talk about retro games and why they are so important and impactful now.

The retro gaming scene is a bit different. Why is it when games can look like this , or this ,...
