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...

Getting my Vita on

So, I went ahead and bought a PS Vita. I’ve wanted one for a while, but I could never justify dropping the money. Since I have all of my gaming consoles (and desktop) hooked up to my living room TV my play time is pretty much over once my fiance gets home. The Vita will allow me to keep playing...

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...

Briley’s Weekend Haunts [September 21-22]

Well, I’d say it’s pretty fucking obvious what I’ll be playing for the majority of my weekend. That being said, there will be some other lovely titles sprinkled in there because I tend to get bored if I stick with one game for too long. What can I say, I have a bad case of OCD. I’m pretty sure you...

Grand Theft Auto V features voiceover work from ‘real’ life gang members

Let’s get something straight, the Grand Theft Auto series has never been grounded in true realism. I mean sure, plenty of elements have been borrowed from the real world. In other words, the developers have certainly used realistic influences to create a fictional environment. So, it does come as a bit of a surprise that Rockstar took a more realistic approach...

When it finally launches, you will be able to share most of your Steam library with friends and family. That means, anyone with a Steam account will be able to play games from your library, as if they...

Let’s face it, the PS Vita TV is pretty fucking amazing for Playstation lovers

By now, you’ve probably heard the news that Sony announced several new Playstation Vita branded products at the Tokyo Game Show, which took place yesterday. Of course, the Playstation Vita itself is getting a new redesign which will bring a much slimmer model to market, now utilizing a non-OLED LCD display. That’s pretty cool sure, but it’s not the news...

Emulation Gaming [Android]: Games that work great with touch controls

Over the weekend we took a road trip and spent some time in St Augustine. Long story short my fiancee and I were checking out potential wedding venues. It involved a two and a half hour car trip and lots of down time. That left me with plenty of time to get some gaming in, especially since I worked ahead...
