The Point – Call of Duty Meets House of Cards

Just in case you ever wanted a look at who is making the newest Call of Duty game. I’m kind of intrigued and though I never really played much of any of the games mentioned in this video, I’m still looking forward to a slightly more science-fiction based FPS.

Hollywood Nor Their Stars Add Legitimacy to Videogames

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Celebrities aren’t the selling point of a videogame. They may have that kind of hold in movies and television, but not in videogames. The games speak for themselves. However, we have moved onto a different discussion, and one I think is very similar to marketing star …

The Point: History of Nazis in Video Games

I think Danny brings up a good point, arguing that video games aren’t desensitizing people to the horrors of war but rather are a product of the time. A direct result to our already desensitized and glorified impression of war. Though this isn’t an opinion I necessarily hold. I do agree that World War II …

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Reveal Trailer

So I never really liked the “modern warfare” take on Call of Duty, or really any other shooters. Especially since I was a pretty big fan of the WWII shooters and even though they were played out to death, it still felt kind of cool. I am also a big fan of sci-fi shooters, mostly …

Pach-Attack: Will Microsoft Keep Their Exclusive DLC

Pach-Attack! 1) Will Xbox Keep Exclusive DLC on Call of Duty?   Kinda interesting how console sales and install base don’t seem to play a role in this decision or at least not as much as the question asker probably thought. With more money and a lower install based, I think Microsoft will try more …

Reality Check: Why Are People Online Jerks?

I think there is something to all this. A big mixing pot of inhibitions in conditions that would normally have a rule of conduct.   There is something though that I’m not sure of. When you say online community, do you mean the people who talk and communicate to each other or do you count …

Reality Check: Will We Ever Have Remote Controlled Dogs

It’s kind of scary, just thinking about how mind control is possible. Heck, it’s scary to think that a fungus can mind control certain insects, now I have to worry about people doing it to. I wonder what mind controlling people would do to our society. Would we establish some stupid universe like “Gamer”, with …

Vsauce2: How Much Would Call of Duty Cost In Real Life?

Vsauce2 shares with us some really interesting tidbits about Call of Duty that put the real world into perspective. The idea of “hyper-realism” and how it makes up think that something is cooler/better has been brought up before, but I think that a video like this really shows how unrealistic “realism” can be. Not just …

Idea Channel: Is Buying Call of Duty a Moral Choice

I think this is a topic that not many of us actually think about, for the reasons explained in the video. As someone who doesn’t really want to support the gun industry, this does make me think about my interest in games like Battlefield 4 and about where my money has gone when I bought …

2012 in Reveiw Part 2: The End of an Era, The Rise of Revolution

Man I remember a bunch of my friends getting all psyched up for Diablo III. Based on what I’ve heard though, I’m kinda glad I never got into it. However, tons of memes came from this game, so as a bystander, I’m glad it exists. I never really heard a lot of Kingdom of Alumar. …

Feast of Fiction: Nuka-Cola, Bonk, and Perk-A-Cola

This episode of Feast of Fiction is kinda…different. The crafts approach is alright, especially considering how hard it is to make soda. Still, these would be pretty nifty gifts and decorations.

Wrong Opinion: Lack of Creativity Is Killing The Games Industry

I want to preface this extra credit with my belief that the game industry is not in trouble. I think it’s thriving and more and more people become interested in what was once an odd phenomenon and I do think that people threatened by this are silly. I say this because I want to dissect …

Video games and the Creation of our Past(s)

Medal of Honor was the first in a line of games that truly attempted to explore (and create) a shared collective past. Now, video games are creating a warped, two-dimensional view of a collective present. What happened?   The Medal of Honor (which began in 1999) series got its start as, essentially, a companion piece …

Pach-Attack: No Interest in Motion Control and How the Publishers Can Get More of Your Money

Pach-Attack! This was an interesting episode. 1) It’s interesting to hear Pachter’s take that Nintendo was pressured by other developers into making the very Xbox like controller for the Wii U, instead of it being Nintendo’s idea to attract more developers. I think either way the outcome is the same, it’s a way so that …
