IGN’s Future of Gaming: The Distant Future

Some of these ideas are far too out there, even more me. Tongue controller?

I just hope that developers using the technology find …

Annoyed Gamer: HD Remixes and Review Scores

Annoyed Gamer 1) Bioware without the Doctors So I don’t know much about this subject, but Marcus comes off as a bit more mean spirited than usual.

The Zelda Project – Turning Ocarina of Time Into a Reality

One thing I don’t think we show enough on this site is cosplay photos. Some of them are really good and are equally artistic and any paintings, videos, etc. Sometimes it just takes a really special example to make me realize that and in this case its these Legend of Zelda cosplay that has the …

War of the Roses: Where Playing is Learning

I think one reason I want to be a game designer, and why I do devout so much of time to creating and commenting about games, is because it turns play into a learning experience. It’s almost like taking it to the next level. Take this video for instance, where the developers for War of …
