We’re so…so…sorry

It came to our attention today that one of our writers had been stealing parts of his work from other websites. This is of course plagiarism, which is the worst offense a journalist can commit. We are truly, truly embarrassed that this has happened and he has been removed from the staff.   At this …

Playstation Vita Makes Me Laugh

Since the PS Vita is coming out sometime in the near future, I figured it’d be appropriate to say why I am not excited and could actually care even less about it than I did the PSP. The PS Vita has long been awaited since its announcement by true Sony fans, and since the, admittedly, …

Pokemon: Gaming Classic Or Recycled Trash?

The nineties were a time of handheld pets.  Neo-pets had taken over the world so it makes sense that the next logical step was Neo-pets plus video games, something that Nintendo were more than happy to cash in on. Pokémon launched in 1996 and fused RPG elements with exploration while at the same time, also …

Weekly Update #1: Let’s Get This Party Started

Going to start doing these to hopefully drum up so talk in the forums. Every Sunday night/Monday morning, I’ll post what news was found over the course of the week. As a bonus, I’ll do them when I’m extremely tired so I can’t be held responsible for what I type. This week we had posted …

Ah, not a lot of extra credit this weekend, quick have some music!

Sorry for the lack of extra fun stuff this weekend. It was Thanksgiving weekend and I had some school stuff to do (not to mention buy a new PS3 and rescue my dying one from the evil computer repair store that overcharged me). So quick, have some music by Zorsy, this dude I follow on …

Gamestop’s Usefulness

So, I think it’s kind of an understatement to say that Gamestop gets a lot of hate. Usually for legitimate reasons, some of which are less legitimate then others. But has anyone stopped to think what it would be like if Gamestop actually went out of business and wasn’t here anymore? It may not happen …

The necessity of HD Remakes: Do we really want pretty rehashes?

As I’ve been looking through the releases of the next few months, as well as those of September, October and November, I’ve noticed that a couple of them are HD remakes of games that many gamers enjoyed during their original time (Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, Devil May Cry HD Collection, etc.). It’s because of …

Top 5 Things I’m Thankful For in Gaming This Year

It’s that Thanksgiving time again!  Normally people celebrate this  holiday because of eating.  I celebrate it because my birthday always happens fairly close to it.  (*cough* buying something from our store would be a great gift exchange!  Just saying! *cough*) Today, though, I’m going to give thanks to the developers for the games that have …

In Defense of Call of Duty: Part 1

I’m going to have to preface this article with three statements: I do not enjoy the Call of Duty games I value and believe in the concept of video games as art I’m a bit of an elitist I’m the kind of jackass that can only say “Let’s go to Gamestop” sarcastically, I scoff at …

Cameron and I were trying to upload everything as a single video, since we apparently don’t have time restrictions on our videos, but so far, no dice. We have a good number of videos we’re getting ready and so check subscribe to our YouTube to keep …

Flyrule

So Cameron and I are having lots of fun trying to put all of our Minecraft videos up while keeping with school and working with YouTube and Windows Movie Maker. So far, it involved tons of rerendering and reuploadings to YouTube. You can check out an interesting panel I recorded on our YouTube page already, …

Notch: Video Game Rockstar

Shigeru Miyamoto, Hideo Kojima, Will Wright, Tim Schaffer. These men are probably some of the most recognized names in the gaming industry and have produced some of the most well known games to date. Anyone who is into gaming has at least heard of these people and those who love gaming would probably saw off …
