One of the best PC indie releases is getting the red carpet treatment on PSN next week. Cross buy enabled (buy it once for PS3 and Vita), get ready for some great action, puzzle-like design, music engineered to play with your senses, and a beautifully surrealist story all in one drug induced bloody great package. Hopefully this means the Vita edition of Lone Survivor isn’t far off!!
Ready to “PLAY” on your new Windows 8 computer? Well, if you’re like most of us, you’re probably just going to stick to Steam, but if you really like your Xbox style achievements, this is probably going to be worth a gander. Actually, it really does seem like the real incentive to play with Windows 8 would be to stay within the Microsoft ecosystem. That aside, check out the trailer above to enjoy a brief teaser video. The real gem of that collection is Zen Pinball 2! You can play it lots of places, but it’s still a great pinballRead More
As I sat in front of my computer trying desperately to come up with something to write about this week I found myself without any ideas. There was no real news I was excited about. There aren’t any games coming out in the near future that I’m all that excited about. The WiiU is right around the corner, but seeing how I abhor EVERYTHING Nintendo…that was out too. Then I tried to think of why I even like video games, and one memory came to mind. It was the day that, after more than a dozen years of playingRead More
Big news dropped last week from one of the industries fan-favorite developers, and it came in the form of a recent job listing. Valve Corporation is looking for an industrial designer with a background in “product design and manufacturing, ergonomics, usability, aesthetics, and surfacing,” according to a report released from Gameindustry International. In the past rumors have frequently surfaced about the company moving into the hardware market, including a rumor about working with Apple to develop a console, but this job posting seems to be a little too specific to have nothing to do with that end. Most would assume that a consoleRead More
I mentioned it last week on my last article and thought I’d give it a week before I really got into what the game is like, you know, let it marinate in my mind and in the minds of others before delving into the nitty gritty. So: is it good? It’s different. It has its goods, it has its bads, and coming into the game as a casual player of GW1 without even touching the beta or looking at gameplay videos I felt like I was playing a completely different game and this is true. The game is COMPLETELY differentRead More
In the competitive gaming world there exists a spectrum where all players fall in between: the noob and the tryhard. Like all extremes, there’s a lot more grief to be had than actual enjoyment. We all know what a noob is. They can’t play worth shit, they work under the rationale that this is all a learning experience, their play style is slow, and they always seem to be on your team. You’ve seen videos, flame wars, etc. calling out these players so its nothing new. But what about the other end of the spectrum? Meet the tryhard: (thxgg) There’sRead More
Let’s face it, if you’re visiting GV you’re probably familiar with the controversy behind one of the biggest games of the year, Mass Effect 3, which saves me from having to give a lot of back story. Let’s just say when the game ended people weren’t happy, names were called and lawsuits were filed. So in an attempt to keep the masses happy ME3 developers BioWare decided they would release an extended cut DLC that will help clear things up and offer some closure for the gamer, many of which have spent years with their Commander Shepard. Before IRead More
(thxgm) Wanna play League of Legends? It’s absolutely free. You don’t gotta pay shit. Absolutely nothing. You can get the same gaming experience as anyone who pays money for this game. So why bother paying for it? It’s stupid right? All it takes is a bit of patience and a bunch of games to be able to unlock what paying customers can unlock right away with the right amount of money. But you won’t break. All these guys got their special skins and you’re still running the classics. It’s fine. Skin doesn’t equal skill.
These are characters I feel are stupidly useless or annoying, which may be worse. Most games have something redeeming but we´ve all played games that featured buzz kill personalities that ruin the experience. Here are my top ten shittiest characters.
So now that I’m on my break from college [fuck yes!] I now have time to check out a few games and download some new jazz. Recently I stumbled upon 4 games I’ve been really wanting to check out. And I think you guys might like them [if you haven't already played them]. Here they are!
When it comes to video games, one of the more popular genres (or at least the ones that show up in media most of the time) are shooters. Modern Warfare, Battlefield, Halo, Resistance, Killzone, TF2, Grand Theft Auto, Dead Space, Mass Effect–basically, if there’s a problem in the world: shoot it. That’s all good and fun and it’s a proven market strategy but with all these shooting games hitting the shelves by the masses we start to see a repetition of similar aspects in each game both good and bad. What sucks about it is we begin to ignore theseRead More
(thx9gag) Okay… so good idea or bad idea: I give you Summoners Rift. Extra Large. Thin Crust. Only League of Legends players would get this, I know. But look at it, isn’t it cool? You can see the purple team’s base… the blue team’s base and the jungle spawns and huge chilies where baron and dragon spawn. It’s the perfect dish for gamers because we’re fat and lazy and no one will eat this except the five of us in the LAN party we had on a Friday night while the girl we’re crushing on is getting laid on theRead More
