Help Me Buy Good Xbox Games Help Me Buy Good Xbox Games

With the Xbox One X coming out soon, I was able to snag a deal on an Xbox One (Geeze, that’s an annoying name. Do people still shorten it to Xbone?) that was too good to resist. So now I have a weird problem: what games should I get for this thing?

My Favorite Game Shown At Each E3 Conference  My Favorite Game Shown At Each E3 Conference 

So E3 has started, and I’m staying home because I don’t want to be trampled alive by the extra 15,000 fans to what was already an overcrowded event in a loud and smelly environment to be able to wait in an hour-long line for 10 minutes of an unfinished game. Yeah, E3 looks more stressful than it looks fun. However, it…

In Defense of Anthem, a Game That Shouldn't Need a Defense Yet In Defense of Anthem, a Game That Shouldn't Need a Defense Yet

At gaming’s biggest convention yesterday, Bioware finally revealed its long-awaited new IP, a shared-shooter a-la Destiny called Anthem. The graphics were gorgeous, the gameplay looked fantastic. And yet the internet is very upset.

The Last Night: The Prettiest Game from Microsoft's E3 Conference, and One You Should Think Very Carefully About Before Buying The Last Night: The Prettiest Game from Microsoft's E3 Conference, and One You Should Think Very Carefully About Before Buying

Okay, E3 2017... not a great year if I’m honest, but each conference so far has had stuff I’m interested in. Anthem and Battlefront 2 from EA, the Xbox One X (or Xb O X for short... wait a minute...), Forza, Crackdown, and OG Xbox backwards compatibility (which I’ll be sure to cover in a few weeks time... yay) from…

How Energy-Efficient Is The Nintendo Switch Compared To Its Competitors? How Energy-Efficient Is The Nintendo Switch Compared To Its Competitors?

So, the Switch came out a few months ago, and it’s selling gangbusters! It really seems to be the resurgence of Nintendo as a company most gamers take seriously, which is a nice breath of fresh air after the Wii U’s... “problems.” But, despite its “problems,” the Wii U had at least one thing going for it:…

How the Vita Made me Buy a PS4 How the Vita Made me Buy a PS4

Three years ago, my roommates and I chose to split an Xbox One. We had all switched from PS2 to the Xbox 360 the generation before. My roomies wanted to keep their gamerscores. For myself, my favorite series at the time was Assassin’s Creed, and Kingdom Hearts 3 and FFXV were coming to both consoles, so I didn’t feel…

Exit on Your Left: Leaving the Nintendo Switch Hype Train Exit on Your Left: Leaving the Nintendo Switch Hype Train

Going in I was hoping for something big. Coming off the Wii U Nintendo was in a bad place and they knew it. All their actions surrounding the Switch made clear Nintendo understood this and was working to prevent the glaring issues facing the Wii U’s troubled lifetime from transferring over to the Switch. This…

*UPDATE*—After a rousing spat of useless back and forth e-mails that wound up only wasting my time, my problems were solved by two intrepid heroes, and other stores being rude to mine.

Necessary Sequel: Breakdown Necessary Sequel: Breakdown

Growing up as a gamer there are certain moments that will inevitably stick with you, both good and bad. The death of Aeris. Psycho Mantis. The moment your favorite game “clicks”. And, for me, the first time I saw my body in an FPS.

The One Thing I Need, More Than Anything Else, From Nintendo NX The One Thing I Need, More Than Anything Else, From Nintendo NX

Growing up, I was always a Nintendo kid. As the youngest of three, some of my earliest childhood memories revolve around Nintendo platforms. My big sister was the first to get a NES, for which my siblings and I collected a cardboard box full of cartridges we’d regularly blow into. After that came the SNES — possibly…

You ever have that occasional night when out of boredom you name off games or features you’d love to see in a future release, but rarely expect to actually see happen?

The 30 Year Backlog The 30 Year Backlog

I’ve grown up with the video game industry. I was born in 1977, I can remember the arcade boom and the Atari phenomenon and implosion. I recall the Nintendo Entertainment System’s emergence and rejuvenation of home gaming. I lamented the decline and phasing out of many arcades that came about as a result.
