I like talking about video games, but I also like talking about hilarious and/or stupid bullshit that you sometimes don’t think is important, but actually is. Today, I am putting on my gaming historian glasses to talk in-depth about an aspect of video games we sometimes think is always a good thing, and it is! … Continue reading The MGS2 Effect
Hope everyone's doing well. There's a lot going on in the world, but none of it really matters when you're sipping some tea with a quality videogame. In any climate, our personal happiness and growth is the most important and powerful thing we can offer the world. 2017 is not a year I am comfortable … Continue reading Happy 2017 – January Gaming HYPE!
After getting back into Resident Evil 4 it was just silly that I hadn't played Mercenaries 3D yet. This game takes the tried-and-true Mercenaries mode from Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 and makes a full game out of it. Dropping the need for a single player campaign, it features dozens of missions that are … Continue reading Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D – Anxiety On the Go
*tch* This is Leon. I've arrived on the Wii U through the Virtual Console, some kind of digital download service. They took a sample of my blood and uploaded it. I've also been injected with a virus, it seems to have changed my reflexes. I can see a green cursor wherever I aim my gun. … Continue reading Resident Evil 4 – Wii on Wii U Edition
Combine the creative mind of Suda 51, the structured work ethic of Shinji Mikami, the haunting melodies of Akira Yamaoka and a big hot boner, and what do you get? A pile of steaming hot poo on the floor. After my misadventures with Resident Evil 6 I decided to do a bit of soul searching and … Continue reading Shadows of the Damned – Upgrade Your Boner
I've just finished playing Resident Evil 6 and after some very bad first impressions, the full game turned out pretty decent. Leon's campaign was extremely enjoyable and the game does a lot of things right as well as wrong. The game has some interesting scenarios, amazing bosses, great dialogue (by cheesy RE standards), and even … Continue reading 5 Easy Steps – How To Fix Resident Evil
Capcom just released a demo of Resident Evil Revelations on Wii U (roughly 600mb) and I jumped on it. I'm a huge fan of the 3DS game, it was so good I think it should have been called Resident Evil 6. The thought of a more polished version of the game with Wii U features … Continue reading Resident Evil Revelations HD – Wii U Demo Impressions
Pro Daisy: you know, if PXZ's Bruce Willis aged a little more, we'd have a legitimate Barry Burton Infernal Monkey: Pro Daisy: the real Dynamite Cop Infernal Monkey: =D Chris: hell yes Chris: that reminds me i was in the middle of playing REmake.... then Wii U came out and flashed its tits Pro Daisy: … Continue reading From Chat: Next Generation Barry
While they're fun to work up an increased heart rate to over the internet, video games can cost a lot of money. This is not much of a secret; it wouldn't be worthy of a TV special. Video games are typically much more expensive than a bag of ice, but less than three blocks of … Continue reading I’ve got $10, let’s go game shopping – November 2012
The Wii Remote & Nunchuk was last generation's innovation in violence - still strong today, still better than the competition. This was the method of controlling the last true console Resident Evil experience the world would know: The Umbrella Chronicles. For the previous console cycle, there's a seldom-stated lesson Capcom briefly learned (see RE4:Wii) then … Continue reading Hey U – Give Me Real Controls
As we near the Wii U launch, we also near the launch of a surprisingly-original Ubisoft title in the form of ZombiU. It's a fresh take on the survival horror genre, and is more of a Resident Evil game than Resident Evil 6 is. The gist of the story is that John Dee, head magician … Continue reading ZombiU, or is it really GhostU?
