A look into Killing Floor 2’s Co-op

284677-AAAADASd

The Call: Survival In The New Domain A Journey into Killing Floor 2’s Co-op          The night sky is no longer dark. Instead, looking out of the window, What should have been a cloudy, dark night had long since become orange, with the lights of a thousand burning embers rising up into the sky, singing their song of chaos that had been ripped from the once peaceful streets of Paris. The wind … Read More

So you want to make a free to play game

South Park Freemium Cycle

Making a game is something you put your heart and soul into, yet in the end, to do so at a professional level instead of as a hobby requires that someone foots the bill for food, shelter, heating and so on. It’d be nice if we could just get the best people to make the best games, but reality dictates that we need to pay our employees. There are a lot of ways to do … Read More

Visceral Reminds DICE How To Battlefield!

Battlefield™-Hardline_20150320173818narrow

  The latest offering in the Battlefield franchise is here and it is brought to us by Visceral Games. Leading up to Hardline, fans were worried they would merely reskin Battlefield 4 and create essentially what amounts to nothing more than a full priced expansion pack. And judging by the initial E3 beta it was looking like we were right. Setting aside the fact that it was a beta, the game was plagued by many … Read More

What makes a game fun? Episode 003 – Snowballing

What Makes a Game Fun 003

Now, this’s a bit off the topic I’d been going to cover, but it’s pertinent to the first two episodes of the “What Makes A Game Fun?” series. So what’s the topic that I’m beating around the bush on today? Why, snowballing. No, no, not THAT kind of snowballing… ew. It’s also best if you don’t ask yourself why I know that term. No, I mean the kind of snowballing which refers to the effect … Read More

The Holy Trinity of Video Games

WoWScrnShot_030115_121456

In most games, we are aware of different classes.  The visuals are pretty easy to come up with.  The knight in shining armor, the smiling rogue, and the priestess that keeps people going beyond what they thought possible.  These examples are the most highly recognized by just about everyone.  And while we might tire of their examples being used all the time, they are easy to recognize and hard to beat.  This has come to … Read More

When is a game too long?

boredom-can-ruin-your-game-before-its-even-finished_928_418155_1_14012487_500-500x321

This has actually been on my mind since I first started playing role playing games, such as Realms of Darkness and Pool of Radiance. While RPGs are known for long story lines and expansive worlds, they are often plagued with game play times that exceed the 50 hour mark. In some cases, they actually exceed 100 hours of play.  Though I will grant that the games that go over 100 hours are rare, they often … Read More

Redstone is the Minecraft equivalent of electronics, but with a few differences. We’ll start first by discussing how redstone works at a basic level: In order for a redstone circuit to do anything useful, it must have … Read More

Why I didn’t like the Legend of Korra

The-Legend-of-Korra

Let me be clear, I really really wanted to like the Legend of Korra. I remember people telling me how much they hated it, and how I shouldn’t even give it a chance. Being stubborn as I am, I decided to give it a chance anyway. I’m of the opinion that I can let certain flaws slide if a work redeems itself in the end. I can forgive a great deal if a show manages … Read More

This War of Mine Review

this-war-of-mine-artwork-01-1

When I read through game reviews, or even write my own, I often times differ in relation to popular opinion. Its easy to form your opinion about the game, based on the individual look at the visuals, audio, game play and so on. This time, I took a few days after playing through this game, and I found myself in a weird state of mind, where I was simply not sure of what to say … Read More
