I made a few posts in reaction to the Xbox One news, but they were on sites where access is private. Feel free to read through them if you so desire. They’re complete with comment sections, though those were trimmed for clarity, continuity, and relevancy. Read more »
The following was written in response to the recent “deal with it“ controversy and the rumors that Durango (the next Microsoft console) will require an always online internet connection in order to function. It is also rumored that this restriction is designed as part of a strategy to remove used games. I write this knowing full well that these are just rumors that may not come true. Read more »
If you aren’t up to date with the show then you shouldn’t read on. It’ll spoil things for you or make no sense.
I beat Mass Effect 3 last night (spoiler free). It was certainly interesting. I had been exposed to so much anti-hype before even starting the game that it was hard not to be worried about the whole thing, but I found the story of the game to be incredibly satisfying throughout. Some of my favorite characters died, some didn’t, but I thought all of them got pretty satisfying conclusions to their story lines. I was shocked at times, and actually cheered at others. Jacob’s was perhaps a bit boring, but that might just be because he was a character I always found boring. It reminded me a lot of the final Harry Potter movie, which was pretty damn satisfying for people who cared about the series. Read more »
Valentine’s has come upon us again, and for reasons I can’t quite pin down, I don’t hate it as much as I used to. Maybe it’s the presence of no adverts about Valentine’s being slammed in my face (which I am more than grateful for). What my concern is at this point in this year is the astonishing amount of artform-crap that has been spewing out of everywhere. No movies are remotely interesting to the point where I think that This Is War looks quite good. No books have come out that make me want to cower in Waterstone’s for fifteen million hours. And most disappointingly, almost every selling game has next to zero appeal. So instead of having a rant about Valentine’s Day, I’m going to have a rant about recent popular games.
It seems that Bioware is including same sex relationships in their popular Star Wars MMORPG in order to satisfy fans, but Family Research is up in arms over the issue. I normally wouldn’t bother talking about something like this, I mean the title itself is already redundant. What, you mean that one anti-gay religious organization with a misleadingly neutral sounding name is against gay people being in something? What a shocker!
Things get interesting however when you take a look at Tony Perkins’ incredibly poor word choice during the broadcast. Read more »
I case you haven’t heard, SimCity Societies is the latest one of these ‘video game’ things that are corrupting minors and tearing apart the framework of society. It will terrify your children and their clenched, sweat-drenched little hands into bowing down to socialist green police views by threatening them with punishment.
I’m sorry, I just can’t keep this joke running for any longer. The above claims were actually made by Fox News, and are you really surprised?
