The Majority Of Magic 2015 Players Exhibit Poor Sportsmanship

Posted by Ser Barristan Selmy in 3 Second Violation With Kezins , 21 August 2014 - - - - - - · 166 views
Magic, Magic2015, iOS, iPad

The Majority Of Magic 2015 Players Exhibit Poor Sportsmanship While I do enjoy playing Magic The Gathering on my iPad and PS3, it seems good sportsmanship exhibited by other players rarely exists. I'd estimate that in 80-90% of the multiplayer games I'm in where it's obvious I will win the match, the other player will exit the game which causes a slow down waiting for the computer to take over for them.

I'm not s...

Random Roy - EVO 2014 Summary I didn't think it would be possible to follow last years hype, last years upsets, and last years incredible matches. Well, I was wrong. I bring you again, the summary of Evolution Championship Series. Now if you're unfamiliar with what EVO is, basically the Olympics of fighting games. There's a medley of fighting games to be played ranging from Street Fig...

(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...

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!

My Experience With Archeage and Why You Should Try It

Archeage, MMO, Khorne

Quite recently I was convinced into trying my hand at a new MMO called Archeage which you may or may not have heard. Seeing as it was free, I decided to give it a try and joined up with Khorne on the continent of Nuia. The game has four races split amongst two continents, Khorne plays as a Nuian / Human and I chose to play as an Elf since they occupy the...

Destiny: Is it Worth Your Money?

Destiny:  Is it Worth Your Money? Bungie's hotly anticipated Destiny reached retail shelves at the beginning of September, the fulfillment of a $500,000,000 adventure to home consoles. Guardians logged more than a hundred million hours in the first week after release, but the numbers only tell a fraction of the story. Destiny serves as Bungie's first chapter in the studio's life after H...

I am still trying to figure out how I should convey these "scenarios" in each blog post. Would everyone like to see them told in story form--much like how we act them out in-game--or would everyone prefer a simple overview of what happened; the "tldr version" so to speak. Below will be a bit of both. I can save the chat lo...

The Walking Dead Season 2: Discussing "My Choices" **Spoiler Heavy** Written on iPad. Will check for typos later.

While Season 2 wasn't as emotionally connecting as the first season, I still enjoyed it. I enjoyed the decisions available but definitely understand that the majority of the story is predetermined. Some reviewers seem to have a problem understanding that aspect. :)

Below are the "choices" I made this sea...

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...

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...

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 - - - - - - · 294 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...

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. After all, games such as "Angry Birds" and "Candy Crush Saga" rule the gaming charts on Android and iOS platforms. However, first impressions don't count for everything. Technological advances with the Nvidia Tegra and...
