Opinionated [The Division]: This is my jam

The Division is a slow burn. There’s really no other way to describe it. I played the hell out of the Beta when it was available, and I picked up the Gold Edition of the game which – as I’m sure you know – launched yesterday. Do I regret purchasing the season pass up front now that the game is...

Opinionated: If you’re being a twat, stop it

One odd habit that I have is when someone talks shit, throws out an insult or is just being a fucking twat I feel the need to offer credentials. This is silly, and I know I’m not the only one that does it. I don’t owe trolls a damn thing and I certainly don’t need to explain myself to strangers...

Opinionated: Why I’m excited for Toukiden

I’m a Monster Hunter guy. I realize some gamers out there hate the genre, but I’m not one of them. Recently, I downloaded the Toukiden demo from PSN to my PS Vita. I’ve been jonesing for a Monster Hunter style game for a while, and Soul Sacrifice doesn’t really scratch that itch. Soul Sacrifice is a fantastic game in its...

Opinionated: How the Vita saved gaming [for me, duh]

PS Vita in use

Touch controls are the fucking worst. I don’t care what mechanics a game has, if the controls utilize touch for movement, aiming or any combination of the two I hate it. I’m on the development team of Tales of Illyria, a choose-your-own-adventure/oregon-trail style RPG for Android. Why am I touting that? Our game doesn’t use touch controls for movement. We...

Opinionated: Why I’m okay with being an anti-social gamer

I do enjoy playing games with others, most importantly family. My little brother and I are separated by an ocean as he’s currently stationed in Aviano, Italy. That means when we get a chance to play games together I dive right in. That being said, I’m definitely an anti-social gamer. I prefer to spend a majority of my time plowing...

Opinionated: Marvel vs. Capcom 3, destroyer of friendships!

I normally prefer to play multiplayer games. I feel that a social element is only beneficial to the whole entertainment experience. However, sometimes it’s a gambit, and this is one of those times. A lot of people I meet think of themselves as true contenders when it comes to this game, which is why battles get so heated.¬†The funny thing...
