Ace Attorney Showdown: Hollywood Vs. Miike

Here’s an article from Kotaku discussing how the Ace Attorney movie, made in Japan by director Takashi Miike, and how it’s the best video game adaptation ever made.

Video Game High School Ep. 7 — The Best One Yet

If these videos had episode names this one should be called “When shit gets real”. This is by far the best episode yet with emotions running high and the drama turned up to 11. The Law is pretty much a cartoon villain and the empitome of the cocky gamers (if maybe a bit overdone). I’m …

Speculation Friday: Can Portal 3 Have Any More Science?

Given Valve’s track record, we probably won’t see a Portal 3 anytime soon (read: ever). But would we really need one? Afterall, the last game had a pretty definitive ending, and the Steam workshop kind of ensures that we’ll never run out of content. But, of course, we can also dream can’t we, and with …

What If Life Was Like a Vid—(Please Purchase Extended Title To Access The Rest of This Title)

Wow, this video has really showed me the dangers of having life be like a video game. Afterall, DLC has ruined a lot of gamer’s experiences that I couldn’t imagine if real life was like (Please purchase the text add-on to keep reading this post). Also, here’s a free DLC picture for being part of …

From the Bad Guy’s Perspective

So you know that article that I published earlier today about death in videogames? Well, this kind of highlights all of that. Death is meaningless and it freaks out these bad guys as much as as it does me.

What Could Possibly Go Through The Twisted Mind of the Pyro

It is more monster than man. An unspeakable wave of destruction. I too wonder what kind of dark and twisted soul lies behind that endless void of those eyes.

Life and Death in Games: Analyzing the Mechanics of Health and Death

One of the most standard mechanics in most video games is the health bar, and connected to that, death. Thematically, death has presented several issues when discussing video games as a form of artistic expression. Many games do not, or more often than not, cannot treat death in a realistic and expressive manner either because …

Carrier Command: Combining Strategy and Action Into an Awesome Looking Package

This game looks amazing. I will definitely be keeping my eye on it. I love it when games combine action and strategy together, it’s probably why I like the Battlefield games so much. The game is still in development, but you can check it out and support them at their official website.

Question of the Week: Other Hobbies

A week without videogames Ever had those days where you didn’t want to touch the Xbox or the PS3? What if that effect lasted for a week? Doctors would rejoice at your first steps to recovering from videogameitis, but for me I didn’t do this on purpose. It just sort of happened, yet I don’t …
