The Majority Of Magic 2015 Players Exhibit Poor Sportsmanship

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.

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...

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...

I'm a huge fan of the game Counter-Strike. It's not a very popular game, so I doubt you've ever heard of it. Anyway, one day I was playing the newest...

It was that night that still haunts to this day. I remember it clearly. I remember her face, her voice, her touch, her eyes, and her presence. She was only a little girl, but yet still haunting and at the same time she was crying. It felt like a curse after she went away. Ever since then I'd get nightmares here and there. It was lonely. The dreams I had w...

Resident Evil 2 and My Brush with Death Twas a dark cold evening March 6th, 1998. I had just turned 11 years old, cake had been eaten and gifts were being opened. My dad had surprised me with a rescued Rottweiler Doberman mix earlier in the week, which had to weigh at least 130 pounds. This birthday could not get any better. That is until I saw that my parents had ignored the large RATED M sti...

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...

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

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...

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!
