Would Nathan Drake Make A Fantastic Homosexual?

  Another article from Destructoid (one of my favorite places to go), this time discussing of whether or not Nathan Drake being gay would become a milestone in gaming.   Read the article. Done? Good. Let’s discuss. 1) Would this make sense story wise? My issue with Nathan Drake is that he is a sociopath. …

Jason Yang Digs Skyrim (Violin Cover)

I wish I was talented ;______;   Also, I love the Skyrim theme, but I can never get Harry Partidge’s lyrics out of my head when I hear the main part.

A Book About Christian Theology In Relation to Zelda

The Old World of Republic Warcraft

So recently Star Wars: The Old Republic released, and it was a hit among everyone here at VGO. However, once I booted up the game and finished installing the updates on release day, I was intrigued to see how similar the game was to another MMO Superstar, World of Warcraft. It’s not that the games are like …

I’m Done with Zombies

That’s it, I’ve had it. Don’t care if the zombie craze is still alive and thumping, to me its novelty is growing old and wore out. And why is that? Over the years, we have seen different iterations of the zombie mob. Whether they are slow in pace or fast runners, all zombies do one …

The FPS, Realism and What it Means to be a Game

From a purely technical perspective, current games are capable of a greater level of fidelity to real life than ever before. Advanced graphics, sound and lighting engines are being used to render game worlds that are visually believable and dynamic. Take Grand Theft Auto 4’s Liberty City, a faithfully recreated east coast metropolis, complete with …

Aspiring Game Designer #3: Path to Inspiration

I know that everyone who plays video games have at one point said: “You know what would make this game better?” Those people have also at one point said: “I could make a better game!” or “what on Earth were they thinking?” If you’re one of these people, then perhaps you secretly (or overtly) want …

8 Short Nintendo Fan Films (The Nintendo 24 Hour Video Challenge)

Nintendo sure loves the term “ambassador”. I mean, I’m a 3DS ambassador so I got 20 free games. But I think these guys outrank me. Actually, I suppose the idea is pretty brilliant. Why pay for commercials when you can have the fans tell other people how awesome their products are. I know that I’ve …

If Wheatley Had Won VGA Best Character Award

The Spike TV Video Game Awards are dumb. One of the categories I hate the most is “character of the year”. Why? Mainly because I think that’s a completely useless award. It doesn’t matter that the Joker won the award, because Mark Hamill, who provided all the character into that role, didn’t win best male …
