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...


Back from the dead

Hello everyone. The web host for Vulgamer migrated to a new set of servers and it screwed up the database install for the site, mainly because of the plugins being used. Not that you need to know any of that crap, but because of it I was not able to login to the backend of the site which also meant...


Just Cause 2 now supports multiplayer [mod]?

Every once in a while something truly epic comes along and flies under the radar. Just days ago, something like that happened and it blew my mind. I can’t remember how many times I had this thought while playing Just Cause 2: “It would be so awesome if this had multiplayer like GTA.” Well, thanks to some pretty awesome devs...


Opinionated: Sony should team up with the CFW scene

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd starting village

Since I purchased my PS Vita, one of the games I’ve constantly had the desire to play is Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. If you’ve read any of my other posts then you already know I’m a huge MH fan. The problem is, my UMD copy of MHP3 is not compatible with my Vita. Even if it was, there is no...


Here’s a PS Vita, now give it back or we’re going to tell the authorities

PS Vita Tearaway bundle

The title to this post probably doesn’t make much sense, but neither does the situation it describes. Due to an “error in [their] warehouse” online retailer Zavvi sent a bunch of customers the PS Vita Tearaway bundle who had in fact only purchased the game. In other words, customers paid about $40 (give or take) for the PS Vita game...


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...


You show me yours, and I’ll show you mine

I’m always droning on about how I’ve played this game or that game, but I figured it was time I show some cred. Please keep in mind this does not represent my complete game library as some of the stats offered here aren’t even close to comprehensive. For example, I cannot show you how many toons I’ve leveled across multiple...


The Humble Jumbo Bundle is probably worth it

Who gives a shit if the games included are indie or not? That argument has been pointless for a while now, especially since the scene many would call “indie” has changed. The true definition of an indie game is no longer what it once was. It’s mostly because we’re in a game bubble and shit has just blown out of...


Vulgamification [State of Decay]: Not your typical zombie game

State of Decay is not a run-of-the-mill survival horror zombie game. To be honest, that’s perfectly fine with me. While I love the Walking Dead and all things zombie (I loved zombies long before that- no bandwagon hopper here), I have to admit that I’m quite zombie-d out. In that regard, I’m over the whole -run around a linear path...


Vulgamification [Darksiders II]: What the first game should have been and more

Darksiders II is a complete amalgamation of everything that the first game should have been. The world is expansive and open, the quests are engaging and fun and the gameplay is refined. One of the most interesting things about the second game is that you can actually outfit your character with different equipment and weapons, ultimately resulting in separate character...
