The Game Direct Takes Us Through Capcom’s Decision to Make Resident Evil Less About Horror and More About Action

  I hate the idea that video games are a business and thus should make creative decisions based on what will make money or what is popular.

The Downside of Going Digital

Did You Know Gaming Dives Into the History of Nintendo’s Most Revolutionary Console

  Once again, one of Nintendo’s most innovative ideas comes from years before it was actually implemented. Honestly, I’m surprised something like Mii’s took so long to be implemented by anyone. Maybe before the Wii, games were all seen as their own individual spaces and it wasn’t until something like Mii’s that having a visual …

  Wow, I’m really impressed with how fast these cover musicians work. This was made 2 days after the successor to Banjo-Kazooie, called Yooka-Laylee, was announced. That’s the power of the teamwork between Swiggles1987, Thunderscott, and ToxicXEternity.

From the Team Behind Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country comes Yooka-Laylee!

I know I’m a little late to this party, but the spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie is too big a deal to ignore. Despite never finishing, I have fond memories of Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64 and seeing as this Kickstarter is well-beyond funded, I can’t wait to see how this turns out.   If you …

PBS Game/Show Discusses Rust, Race, and the Proteus Effect

  This is kind of something I’ve been wanting to discuss but never knew the right context to bring it up.   If anything, I think this situation really shows how much race does matter to people and why representation is important.

Reality Check Explains Why You Might Feel Sad When You Finish a Game

  Do you think this is why some people get so protective of their fictional characters. Why people didn’t want to see Samus portrayed as anything but a one-line spouting Duke Nuken clone or why when a character changes race or sex, people are so adamant against the change, because they have formed at least …
