Lords of the Fallen: Improving on the Dark Souls Formula

So, I picked up Lords of the Fallen on the PS4 today. Overall, it scores well on the basics: graphics, controls, sound, and music. Even the voice acting (while not perfect) is done well enough that it adds to the experience. But none of that really needs to be pointed out. The game follows the familiar Demon's Souls/Dark Souls formula but … [Read More...]


Ranking Dead Rising 3′s Psychopaths: #2. Lust

When creating a psychopath based around the central theme of "lust," you'll probably have to walk a very fine line. Yes, the characters will be screwed up and psychotic, but it's never ok to use something like rape for shock value. To be honest, I was a little worried going in. After all, Dead Rising 3 isn't exactly subtle. Nick runs into "Lust" … [Read More...]


PS4 Pro Tip: Using Your iPod With The PS4′s USB Music Player

  Yesterday's release of the PS4 2.0 firmware update, also known as "Masamune," contained one of my most-wanted features: the ability to game with my own music in the background. The only kicker is that, at least for now, the music must be stored on an external USB drive. If you're like me, that could mean a music selection hampered … [Read More...]

But you've got a really bad attitude. Maybe this video will cheer you up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oVcS6clu_k … [Read More...]


Scary Moments In Gaming: Metro 2033 The Librarian

I'll admit it: I have a huge soft spot for survival horror games. When done right, they easily make their way to the top of my favorites list, and I've played a ridiculous number over the years. However, one of the scariest moments in recent memory came from a title that isn't your typical survival horror game. I am referring to Metro 2033, or … [Read More...]


Ranking Dead Rising 3′s Psychopaths: #3. Gluttony

Editor's Note: This article contains some heavy spoilers. So, if you haven't played Dead Rising 3 yet, you may want to try one of our other articles.  Call me crazy, but I firmly believe that if Gluttony was interpreted in just the right way it could be the most disturbing, most disgusting, most visually upsetting of the Psychopaths in Dead … [Read More...]

Twitch is Missing Out On The Pantsless Gamer Market

If someone were to ask me if I was a nudist, I'd probably have to say yes. It's not something I talk about much, because there's really no point in talking about it. I tend to dislike clothing, and choose not to wear any whenever I can get away with it. In general, I think adults can handle that concept. Apparently, Twitch TV disagrees. … [Read More...]
