Review: The Sims 4

No Comments 26 November 2014

The Sims was one of the first social life simulation games of its kind. It revolutionized the gaming industry at a time when video games were strictly based on point-and-shoot models, giving you a lifeless character to aimlessly guide through a linear environment. The Sims series altered the dimensions of how video games were classified. […]

1 Comment 18 July 2014

Corinne Wooden writes that it is a person’s actions that effect their decisions, not the video game. There are many fallacies tied to video games and video gamers as a community. Many people base these stereotypical views off hasty generalizations. These misconceptions occur when society is basing a broad conclusion on a small sample. Countless […]

Mass Effect 3

No Comments 24 April 2012

If there’s one thing that’s defined this instalment in the Mass Effect franchise, it’s controversy. Anyone who even casually follows gaming has surely heard about the uproar over the ending, as well as other spoiler-rific moments that I’ll refrain from mentioning. But don’t think for a second that Mass Effect 3 (ME3 from here on) […]

Journey

2 Comments 29 March 2012

In a world where shooting a terrorist is worth a hundred points and when throwing a grenade is as easy as blinking, gaming has become increasingly violent over the years. Despite the fact that war is mostly absent from the average person’s life, and most countries have borne the scars of battle enough to try […]

The Flops of 2011

No Comments 28 January 2012

2011 was a good year for both films and games, with juggernauts such as Deathly Hallows Part 2, Hugo, Skyrim and Batman: Arkham City making millions and pleasing reviewers.

Battlefield 3

2 Comments 10 December 2011

To any diehard Battlefield fans out there, I’m sorry this review is so late, but if I had to describe Battlefield 3 in one word it would be un-put-downable (if that actually is one word). Trust me: this latest addition to the series is so good that it is more than worth your wait. The […]

I Hate Those Guys

1 Comment 29 November 2011

There was a time when authors, filmmakers and the like could make anyone the villain of a piece. They didn’t necessarily need a reason – they were the bad guys because we were the good guys. Most of the time, our brave hero fended off evil kings, moustache–twirling fiends and cunning assassins. But, with some […]

Lonesome Road

No Comments 06 October 2011

If there was ever a game that didn’t need any additional content, it would be Fallout: New Vegas. With over one hundred hours of playing time, a map near to the actual size of Las Vegas, dozens of quests and so many locations that nobody’s ever bothered to count them there is more than enough […]
