  • Socom, a franchise synonymous with frantic action and tense stealth gameplay, released its newest title, Socom 4, for the Playstation 3. Having been a long standing fan of the series, (even one that was released for the Psp) I had high hopes and higher expectations. Luckily for me and anyone else who cares to play it, I wasn’t disappointed. As in previous Socom titles, you head a team of elite operatives trying to save the world from utter destruction by various individuals. But luckily, the world has you and your team here to put a bullet in their collective heads to thwart whatever plans they had. Level design is pretty standard fair for a war game, lush jungles, ancient ruins, bunkers and […]

  • As I have grown older I find myself in situations where some of the slang being thrown around has become alien to me.  A big part of this might be the fact that I refused to ever play WOW (World of Warcraft) and a lot of new slang has spawned (pun intended) from that game.  My refusal to ever touch the game didn’t come for a dislike for MMORPGs, Fantasy worlds, or video games in general.  The reason I did not want to partake in WOW was the great number of friends I had that did play and ceased to exist in reality with the rest of us.  They stopped coming to real life RPG sessions like Dungeons and Dragons […]

  • Here’s a list of video games that I’d like to see more information on, if I’m not already anxiously awaiting the release.  Most of them come out by the end of the year 2011, but there are a couple early previews for 2012…   Assassins Creed: Revelations The city looks beautiful.  This game takes place in Constantinople after the events of Brotherhood.  You’ll be looking for 5 keys to unlock the library.  Eighty-five percent of the city is sloped.  Zip lines utilizing the new hook blade are often used since the city is so sloped.  The hook blade is vicious.  It’s really cool.  You can tear into people and finish enemies with some interesting moves using the hook blade.  You can use a smoke bomb and “Eagle Sense” (like eagle […]

  • I wrote an article about gaming length a while back, and this is kind of an expansion piece to it: replay value. Often overlooked in the grand scheme of a person discussing how good or bad a game is, but something I feel is very important. The first game I remember playing, that truly made me want to play it over again after finishing it, was the original Silent Hill for the PS1. The fact that you could play it again, and by omitting certain things or doing other things in the game would give you a different ending, blew me away and totally hooked me. Literally, from that point forward, any game I played with multiple endings immediately got […]

  • Is it just me, or is anyone else sick and tired of hearing about 3D gaming and having it crammed down our throats?   I’m just voicing my opinion on this matter, but enough already! I get it! You can play games in 3D.  The bigger question is, does it make gaming any more enjoyable than playing a game in standard 2D?  I had the opportunity to demo games in 3D at last year’s PAX conference, and I’m not sure. Yes, it was more engaging, ever so slightly, but more none the less. Is it a make it or break it experience? To me, it wasn’t. It was cool to play for a few minutes. The games I played did […]

  • Game: Metroid System: Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Year: 1986 Type: Action-Adventure Claim to Fame: Samus is a woman! Trivia: The first female character to kick some serious ass! Metroid was one of my first NES games and the moment I set eyes upon the sci-fi imagery and heard the eerie music I knew I was hooked!  I spent hours and hours battling through a plethora of strange aliens to obtain power-ups and eventually reach my target: Mother Brain.  I think more than anything I remember how much I loved the music of this game which later would come to influence me when I grew up to wage war in the dying music industry.  I still remember playing a show with […]

  • Yes, you heard me Microsoft- we’re coming for you.  Like a horde of mindless zombies honing in on a fresh kill, the masses aren’t going to take it anymore.  Your stupid Kinect update for the Xbox 360 has rendered those of us with older Xboxes “console-less”.  Apparently your update not only gave a fresh and fancy new look to the Xbox 360 dashboard but also ate our DVD drives for breakfast.  In your futile war on piracy you created a little icky worm that clung to the update and then leaped into our DVD firmware once it was downloaded and installed.  This little guy is stinky, gooey, dirty, and slimy and he ruined my Xbox.  I have found many ways […]

  • Game: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past System: Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) Year: 1992 Type: Action-Adventure Claim to Fame: Viewed as one of the greatest games of all time, it sold more than 4 million copies! Trivia: Many changes were made from the Japanese to American version.  The most obvious change was made to the subtitle of the game, which was renamed from Kamigami no Triforce “The Triforce of the Gods” to A Link to the Past. The font used to represent an unreadable language, Hylian, originally had designs of a vulture and an ankh. These designs were based on Egyptian hieroglyphs which carry religious meanings, and they were altered in the English version. The localization […]

  • PAX is a no holds barred celebration of one of my favorite past times, gaming. Sure, there are other things to do at PAX, other than gawking at the newest and hottest games that will be gracing our store shelves and hopefully our personal libraries. But, it’s all about the games, for me. This will be my fifth consecutive year of attending our annual gaming mecca, and I can honestly say that I get just as excited as the first time I went. The boys over at Penny Arcade have truly done us (gamers) a tremendous service by hosting this festival of nerddom for all to relish! It amazes me to see PAX grow in size and depth, year after […]

  • Is it better to have a game that while being short (6 to 8 hour campaign) totally blows me away?  Or is it better to have a game with a long (10 to 20 or more hour) campaign that is satisfying but not epic? It is a topic that I have been wrestling with for a very long time. To me, it’s almost dependent on the type of game that I’m involved with at the time.  Also, I would much rather have a company give me an experience I’m sure to remember rather than something I’ll likely forget in a week.  I mean, is bigger always better?  In certain avenues, yes – gun fights, for instance. But, is going to […]

  • Motion controls, I’ve never been a big fan of them, until I got the Socom 4 Full Deployment Edition. It’s something I’ve always equated to the gaming equivalent of training wheels, something “real” gamers would never lower themselves too. After all, my Dualshock 3 has 10 buttons if you include the analog sticks, 2 of those actually, and 4 directional buttons, so why would I ever stoop so low as to use a motion controller? Simply because the Sony Motion controller is brilliant! Unlike the “insert gag here” Wii motion controller, it works, and it’s accurate. Not to mention the Sharp Shooter! It holds the two pieces of the motion controller in an assault rifle shaped case, making the game […]

  • …and why it’s addicting. For me it’s the feeling of accomplishment when you make a machine do something that it wasn’t built to do.  Some people like to take things apart and put them back together.  I like to softmod, whether it’s a Nintendo DS, old school Xbox, or a Wii- there’s something to be said about the feeling you get when you beat the system.  Play Super Mario World on my Wii?  No problem!  How about Goldeneye 007 on the Xbox?  Yeah!  Multiple player! With the internet it is so easy to find instructions on how to softmod almost anything you can imagine.  I’ve even found myself trying to turn my iPhone into an old school mac which is […]

  • It happened again. As Charlie Brown used to say, in the Peanuts strip, “I can’t stand it”. It completely drives me crazy when anyone asks: “So, what do you do for a living?” The question is innocuous enough, and not meant to be other than the kind associated with small talk and introductions.  Small talk shouldn’t be this hard. The person asking has probably just told me they are plumber, a teacher, an associate executive merchandising division manager. Those terms are all fairly easily digestible, and go down easy, like the weather or the traffic coming into town today. My answers always seem to shift from the shallow to the deeper end of the conversation pool in an instant. “Oh, […]

  • Let’s go thru a checklist here for Homefront: Interesting plot? Check Great writer? Check Incredible possibility to be awesome? Check! Yet with all of this, somehow this game falls flat. To bring you up to speed here, Korea has invaded the United States ala Red Dawn (an 80’s movie about Russia invading the US but thwarted by a group of high school kids fronted by Patrick Swayze). Yes this game was written by the same guy who penned the aforementioned movie. On the story front, Homefront hits a homerun. Sadly tho, that is the only homerun in this game. The graphics are almost last gen bad, the controls are wonky and imprecise, and it’s too much of a predictable game. […]

  • This is a discussion that has run almost as long as Camaro vs. Mustang and X-Box vs. Playstation. Are games art? It depends on your definition of art. Art, by its very nature, is virtually impossible to define, though. What art is to one is nonsense to another. So, what criteria do we use? In my opinion, art should move you either emotionally or spiritually. Can a game accomplish that? Surely some games have moved us at one point or another. Were you not moved by the nameless heroe’s plight in Shadow of the Colossus?  Sure, it took a while to understand what was going on, but once you did, how could you not be moved by it? For anyone unfortunate […]

  • My home IT infrastructure has suffered a streak of bad luck. After upgrading the graphic card in my desktop, the power supply was subsequently sucked dry and failed. My large-screen laptop has developed the loose AC adapter connection so common in PC laptops (why didn’t they solve this weak design years ago?). My PS2 console stopped working around the time the PS3 was coming out, no small coincidence. As a student, I can’t afford a high wattage power supply for the desktop, and I don’t own a soldering iron to fix the laptop. I’m down to my “couch computer,” a Dell X1 Netbook. I have some free time, as school is on break, and I want to do some gaming. […]

  • Game: Shadowgate System: Mac, Atari ST, and NES Year: 1987 for Mac / 1989 for NES Type: Point & Click Adventure About Shadowgate: In Shadowgate, the player must solve a series of puzzles throughout the castle in order to proceed to the Warlock Lord’s chamber. Due to the castle’s perilous nature, at least one lit torch must be in the player’s possession at all times; if the torch is extinguished, the player soon stumbles, breaking his neck, and must then continue from a saved game (or the area in which they died, in game console versions). Since there is only a finite number of torches to be found throughout the game, this effectively acts as a time limit to proceedings. […]
