Americans Never Got to Play Transformers on the NES, So We’re Playing It Now

These days, every time a new Michael Bay blockbuster hits the theater, an accompanying Transformers video game also slithers onto the market. For the most part, these games exemplify the underbelly of triple-A game development. They're the type of poorly designed, poorly executed titles that the industry could easily live without.

GTA 5 Vs. GTA Online

Grand Theft Auto is fucking great. It just is. There I said it. It does something that no other franchise can do and does it well. I've played every game since GTA 3 came out and enjoyed them all. GTA 4 didn't quite live up to San Andreas's standards, but it was still fun as hell. And I played the heck out of it. The two DLC story lines stepped … [Read More...]

However, when I went to the Xbox 360 Marketplace to inquire about a price, the amount shown was a negative $1.00. "This can't be right" I said to myself in a rational tone. But upon further inspection, the farce … [Read More...]

I Am Really Bad at Just Cause 2

Recently, Steam had a sale in which they offered Just Cause 2 for a mere three dollars. Being the kind of person who has to game on a budget, I bought the thing. I'd heard it was a fun, destructive romp, and that does seem to be true. I'm only having one problem with the thing. I really suck at playing it. … [Read More...]

Assassin’s Creed Unity Is Anti-French?

French people are used to being the butt of jokes in popular media, like on South Park or The Simpsons. Now, however, they're the ones misrepresenting their history. Assassin's Creed Unity developer Ubisoft Montreal is coming under fire from former French minister Jean-Luc Mélenchon. According to him, the game "presents an image of hatred of the … [Read More...]
