Static: The Family BBQ Static: The Family BBQ

Man… Sid Shuman… Sid Shuman… The folks are in town, I gotta spent as much time as I can with them, but I took this writing challenge. Today was father’s Day, my parent’s wedding anniversary, and BBQ day so now it’s 10PM and I got nothing. Well until now that is. Time to dust off the ol’ static, and no, it has nothing…

A Payday Style Shadowrun Game can Work A Payday Style Shadowrun Game can Work

Payday 2, a mission based online co-op game, and Shadowrun, a universe where mega-corporations run a world and hired teams do dangerous jobs for and against them. A game that combines the two could be a match made in heaven.

Tragedy Struck the Fighting Game Community Tragedy Struck the Fighting Game Community

Over the weekend of June 8th and 9th, the second iteration of the ‘Brews and Battle’ tournament was held in Westminster, Colorado. It was a fun and successful event that was streamed and was a Red Bull Rise event. But in the aftermath, tragedy struck three well known people associated with the event, and the Colorado…

Will I Watch Smash Ultimate Tournaments? Will I Watch Smash Ultimate Tournaments?

I’ve been really getting into esports for two years or so. One of my favorites is super smash bros Melee. After watching the E3 invitational of the upcoming super smash bros Ultimate, I’m not sure if I’ll watch more competitions.

Bethesda Doesn't Really 'Get' Fallout Bethesda Doesn't Really 'Get' Fallout

Fallout 76 is an interesting concept. One that I remember many people were interested in ever since Morrowind. Using Fallout as the franchise to explore this concept however, brought with it an element that may go against Fallout’s philosophy.

All You Had to do was not call it that, EA! All You Had to do was not call it that, EA!

As I was watching Electronic Arts’ E3 press conference, I was wondering the same things everyone else was. Why are they using so much time on this mobile game? Then they mentioned the name of the game and it drew a heavy sigh.

Would you play with Yourself? Would you play with Yourself?

The only online, team based, competitive game that I play every so often is Battlefield 4. Almost every time I play I can’t help but feel resentful towards my less skilled teammates. I often end up wondering what it would be like to play with 31 clones of myself.

Ignoring the Main Story in Battletech Part 4: Pain and Gain Ignoring the Main Story in Battletech Part 4: Pain and Gain

I got plenty to go through this week. Things got crazy again. We suffered a great loss, but from the loss of that meat, came precious metal. There’s a saying in the Battletech universe. Meat is cheap; save the metal

Rey Might be the most Dangerous Character in Star Wars Rey Might be the most Dangerous Character in Star Wars

For those of you familiar with my content, specifically my Kreia’s Conundrums articles, you may have read the title and already deduced the reason behind the statement. I’m well aware of how controversial the new Star Wars canon is, especially after the Last Jedi. It realy should have been Admiral Ahkbar who took…

What Deus Ex Human Revolution has in common with Dragon Age 2 What Deus Ex Human Revolution has in common with Dragon Age 2

Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Dragon Age 2 are two very different games. But within the stories they tell, both present it in a very similar fashion. Both made a social commentary on how people debate issues, and forced the player into experiencing different perspectives.

What Deus Ex: Human Revolution has in Common with Mass Effect 3 What Deus Ex: Human Revolution has in Common with Mass Effect 3

A segment of its player base were upset with Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s ending. More precisely they were upset at how the endings are reached. While it was clear that people were revolting against buttons, I discovered something much more fascinating. Something Mass Effect 3 would try and replicate, but ultimately…

The One Thing Deus Ex: Human Revolution Needed The One Thing Deus Ex: Human Revolution Needed

The year was 2011 and the Deux Ex franchise is being rebooted with Human Revolution. By 2012 I would proclaim it as my favorite game of 2011, a solid 9 out of 10 game. Before I jump into Mankind Divided, I’d like to reminisce on Human Revolution and talk about the one thing that could have made it a 10 out of 10 for…

How a Security Breach Led me to a Great Game How a Security Breach Led me to a Great Game

I’m sure we all remember the great PlayStation Network outage of 2011. For 23 days PSN was inaccessible and costumer’s private information was stolen from Sony. For me personally, I had no sensitive information on PSN, and the entire ordeal became a blessing in disguise.

Battlefield V Reveal: An Equal and Opposite Overreaction Battlefield V Reveal: An Equal and Opposite Overreaction

Every time I visit my brother, I utter something along the lines of: “Guess what gamers are pissed off about now.” Because there’s always something. This hobby seems to be rife with controversy in the modern day.

Ignoring the Main Story in Battletech Part 3: Hitting the Wall Ignoring the Main Story in Battletech Part 3: Hitting the Wall

I wasn’t expecting to write a follow up this soon. But by the title you may have already deduced the reason why I am. The game is stonewalling my progression.

Kreia's Conundrums - Machines Kreia's Conundrums - Machines

Kreia does not like machines. It might be safe to say that she despises them. I’m sure she understands why they are built, and that to people they have purpose, but that doesn’t make her despise them any less.

Ignoring the Main Story in Battletech Part 2: Fear the Oni Ignoring the Main Story in Battletech Part 2: Fear the Oni

Last time on Ignoring the Main Story in Battletech, I discovered that it’s quite easy to survive in Battletech by only playing the four lowest level planets in the game. Despite their pitiful shops and milk run missions, quite a bit can be achieved with a little patience. After playing the Axylus story mission, I was…

Kreia's Conundrums - Titles and Function Kreia's Conundrums - Titles and Function

“What does assuming the title of Darth Traya” mean to Kreia? She wouldn’t use the title of Darth for no purpose, I understand she first tried to pass the title off to Atris, and assumed the title in her failure. But there has to be a large impact behind her re-assuming that identity, that specific name. Was she trying…

Ignoring the Main Story in Battletech Ignoring the Main Story in Battletech

In any game that gives me the freedom to play and explore away from the main storyline, I like to go back and see how much I can progress in other areas and also to see if the game would respond to it or not. In Skyrim I ended up maxing out the majority of the skills and acquiring the best equipment I could before…

Kreia's Conundrums - Charity Kreia's Conundrums - Charity

Early on Nar Shaddaa, the Jedi Exile, Meetra Surik, encounters several men who could use her help. The final one, where a man flat-out asks for money, stands out from the rest. The player can either help or chase him away. Kreia, the exile’s teacher, condemns her actions no matter which choice is chosen. But why? What…
