Really Freakin’ Clever Uses The Force and Discusses Star Wars: Rogue Leader

  I’ve yet to watch this documentary, but Gaming Historian‘s perspective on it kind of makes me feel like it’s the same as nearly every other recent video game documentary. There’s still this childlike wonder in believing these ancient video game rumors that could have been easily debunked years ago. There’s a peddling of a …

The Cycle of Freemium: Play, Quit, Relief, Repeat

Freemium mobile games are here to stay whether you like it or not. If anyone has read most my posts, then you’d know a lot of the games I’ve played and reviewed are pretty much mobile games. Many of them I don’t have a lot of nice things to say due to what I normally …

PBS Game/Shows’ Jamin Explains How He Became A Video Game Feminist

Did You Know Gaming Blasts to the Past of the Sega Genesis

  The Nintendo vs. Sega Console wars truly was an influential time period for games. Who knew that being able to download games as part of subscription service was originally a Sega Genesis thing?

Sex, Drugs, and Alcohol – VGFacts Lists 4 Games That Were Censored (And 1 that Wasn’t) For Various Reasons

  Oh video games and censorship. A lot of these don’t actually seem all that ridiculous and just go to show you what is culturally acceptable (or more likely tolerated) in one region vs. another.   Though in the case of D, I’m not entirely sure how a lying to the publisher and ratings board …

Sonic Is All About Earning Your Momentum – Really Freakin’ Clever

  Really Freakin’ Clever‘s Joshua M. brings up some really good points in this video, but I don’t necessarily agree that Sonic the Hedgehog 1 is “clever” for making it about “earning your momentum”, at least, over any of the other Sonic games (minus a few, obviously). At it’s heart, the Sonic games have always …

Cracked Breaks Down Why The Order:1886 and a Bunch of Other Games Are Basically All the Same

  I don’t argue with the idea that there are “prime games” that everyone else looks at/rips off, but I do disagree with what some of the prime games are in this video.   But when really looking at it, games have to build off each other. I think in some regards we can say …
