(The Return of) The Angry Leprechaun Rant: The Console War Alright kiddies, strap yourself in. The Angry Leprechaun has been dormant for too long, here is another attack at your eye balls, I suppose if you read this this out loud it's an attack on your ear holes as well, but that's not the point.

The console war, a vicious cycle. New consoles come out, people argue over which is better and cite various statistic...

This started out as a couple of dumb one-off jokes I made earlier today, but then I realized...why not go further with it? Why not make it a number of dumb jokes?

Why not indeed.


So, in today's post, I'll be talking about some upcoming video games that are taking way too long to come out. But not just that - I'll also be revising their names to more ac...

MAG Fest

MAG Fest 12 - January 2nd - 5th, 2014 For those of you that don't know, or haven't had the luxury of having me explain it to them, MAG Fest stands for Music and Gaming Festival. Furthermore, the basic premise of it is that a bunch of volunteers, no official group like Comic Con, get together and have a giant convention for nerds. People register their arcade cabinets, game systems, and anythi...

Quick Thoughts On The Nintendo 2DS http://i1187.photobu...zpse32b9156.jpg

I gave my 3DS away a while back because it simply didn't feel great in my hands. I experienced hand fatigue while using the 3DS XL as well, so had pretty much given up on portable Nintendo games until the 2DS came out and I decided to give it a shot.

Hi and welcome to yet another new blog series I've decided to start up.  Inside The Box will focus on packaging and extras that come with various "editions" of games, though I won't limit myself to just games. Anything nerdy is fair game on this blog!

There's a medley of fighting games to be played ranging from Street Fig...

Gaming, 2001, releases

Came across a thread that I thought was quite interesting. It was a line up of game releases in the US for the Fall of 2001. That also happened to be the year the Gamecube and Xbox launch, with PS2 having launched the year before. The Dreamcast had been discontinued that year but still had a few releases. The Gameboy Advance had been released that year an...

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...

With E3 2014 gone in the books, I've decided to share my thoughts on what was the best of moments in this year's E3. It was all about the games we wanted and waited for. There were many fantastic titles to choose from and it was very tough to decide which felt the best to me in this year's show. I enjoyed this year's E3...

Trading In: Does Wal-Mart Stand A Chance Against GameStop? There are many reasons why someone might decide to trade in their used video games or consoles. Perhaps you decide to take the plunge to the newest console released and figure that since your PlayStation 3 is just gathering dust, it would help ease the pain of handing over a lot of money to get a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and a few games. Maybe you grew t...

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...

Complexity, Barriers to Entry, and Sports: A Possible Explanation of Casual Games

Posted by ijs1337 in My Thoughts on Stuff in Games, 15 June 2014 - - - - - - · 194 views

I was looking through the comments section of an article on Kotaku a few days ago. I forget what exactly the article was about, beyond the fact that it was related to E3. There was a quick series of comments in regards to "casual" gamers and whether or not shooters had ever been games for "casual" gamers to use to introduce themselves to games with, and w...

The fear in the thought that the game may not measure up to what I remember, therefo...

My next step will be picking up some longer cables so I can get the router, cable modem and DirecTV hookups way out of the way. I'm also going to hookup...

Pokemon X Chronicles #02 I left off having just beaten the first gym leader in the game, Viola, who was a bit of bug/photography freak. I hurried along route 4, stopping only to smell the flowers and pick up the stray items in the hedge mazes, okay, I might have taken out a few trainers on rollerskates as well. But they were asking for it!

It's understandable when hardcore gamers take a look at the mobile gaming market and dismiss it as a breeding ground for casual games.

Technological advances with the Nvidia Tegra and...
