Vulgamification [Dragon’s Dogma]: An honest rundown

Every gamer has their specialty right? It’s a type of game or genre which they tend to migrate to, and utterly adore. My specialty is RPGs, or as the nerds like to call it- “roleplay”. I’m not entirely sure why I migrate to RPGs most, maybe it’s because they provide me with a true escape into fantasy realms I’ll never...

Being a cop in Skyrim must be tough

While traveling through the serene world of Skyrim, questing and adventuring away I often wonder one thing in particular- what is it really like to be a cop in the realm? I mean seriously, between boasting about how they used to be an adventurer, and running wildly throughout towns trying to catch baddies, it sure seems like they have a...

How the news will work

Hopefully, it’s obvious that Vulgamer is a bit different from other sites. I want it to be the black sheep of the gaming family, no really I do. If you didn’t know that already then the point was just shoved down your throat, but I don’t feel the least bit sorry for it. My goal is to make this a...

Have Nintendo “Fixed” StreetPass? Nope.

You might have heard that Nintendo has just sent out another firmware update for their only successful machine, the 3DS. In this latest update is what people are calling a “fix” for StreetPass outside of Japan. Well, the problem here is that Nintendo haven’t really “fixed” anything, in fact they’ve probably just added an extra layer of complication to something...

Briley’s Weekend Haunts [July 13-14]

Ah! The fucking Steam Summer Sale is here! It’s that wonderful time of year (and there are two) where gamers, geeks and nerds alike go apeshit over the crazy sales. Many people complain that they will probably never play the games they purchase, and I definitely understand. There are a lot of games in my Steam library that I have...

Briley’s Weekend Haunts [June 8-9]

Guild Wars 2

Life often catches up with you, that much we all know to be true. Lately, between working my ass off and spending time with those I love I haven’t had many chances to do what I enjoy- which is play video games. It happens to most of us, eventually you become a responsible adult, and you run out of time...

Vulgamification [Humble Bundle 8]: A bundle of joy and then some

Humble Indie Bundle 8

I’m sure there’s going to be a million different reviews of the games included in Humble Bundle 8, that’s a given. I mean, you can get the entire pack of seven games (five + two bonus titles) for merely 6 bucks. Hell yeah, now that’s what I’m talking about. Of course, one of the biggest issues with a lot of...

Vulgamification [Bioshock Infinite]: Better late than never…

Bioshock Infinite Light of Day

Bioshock Infinite is everything you want a story focused video game to be. Forget for a moment the fact that it’s a first person shooter, that doesn’t even matter. When you reach those final seconds of the game, with your heart pounding in your chest, sweating profusely from the sheer veracity of the moment the rest of the world seems...

Tales of Illyria is the shit, yo

Tales of Illyria

I had the privilege of writing game content for a video game. I know, I can’t believe someone hired me either. Of course, I was only one of many writers on the team, but I promise I wrote some pretty cool shit. The game is finally available, and it’s pretty badass. Unfortunately, it’s only playable on Android devices at the...

Empty promises and some La Vida Loca

My intention was to self host this blog somewhere, but I’ll be perfectly honest- I don’t feel like paying the hosting fees. Eventually, I’ll have to give in and cough up some money, but for right now, I’m good. Yes, I use a metric fuckton of commas, get over it. That being said, the site has a pretty shitty domain name...
