When you take history into account, you’ll see remarkable things that seem to pop out of nowhere or that things happen all of a sudden that will shape how the future generation lives. Those things happen in the video game industry too. Games like Pacman, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, and etc. were so big, they were like shouting at the whole world with a blow horn. They made this huge impact to kids everywhere, even making them decide how they see themselves in the future. Well, it’s the 21st century, and boy how things have changed. Sure enough there isn’tRead More
Last year saw the releases of games such as The Walking Dead: The Game(later would be announced as 2012′s game of the year), Max Payne 3, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Assassin’s Creed 3, and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. These are only the tip of the iceberg on what seems like a vast amount of game releases. Clearly game developers would want to up the ante on the games they plan on releasing the next year. Fans are clammoring over the titles I’m about to show you, provided you too are excited about these. One was, for some reason,Read More
Ah, I love the smell of a convention floor with a tad mix of gaming frenzy. That is Gamescom for you. Alright, I can hear you ask yourself “What the heck is Gamescom?” I can answer that for you. Think of Gamescom like the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3. Instead of in the US, Gamescom is held in Koelnmesse in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. An annual event that started back in 2009 whose promising cult followers(if you can already establish a cult following just being its 3rd year) have gathered from all over the world. Don’t forget the exhibitors, almostRead More
With Resident Evil: Retribution coming out on September and the 3rd season of AMC’s The Walking Dead at around the same time(October). Not to mention the monumental 100th issue of Image Comics’ best selling title The Walking Dead(basis for the tv show) coming out this week. All these made me think and I thought I’d make an article about the top 10 best zombie video games to date. There aren’t any restrictions on the console/system the game is played on. As long as they are video games, they could make the cut. Here are MY Top 10 zombie games ofRead More
I have been fascinated by how so many people are enthralled by the Halo game series. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy the games as well but not to the point of obsession. Yes, I have spent my fair amount of time playing Halo 2 and 3 with friends. I have spent entire weekends playing Halo 3 battle tournaments that lasted into the early morning. I have won and lost my fair share of matches and got free kills when the opportunity presented itself. I even got into the trash talking when playing online and would utter every foul wordRead More
Like any other day, just surfing through whatever is on television could get mundane at times. Until you come across an intriguing commercial. I literally sat up straight(didn’t want to stand up ’cause I was too lazy), and paid attention to the very promising offer. For students who are going to college, if you buy one of probably three(There are more, just chose the ones I saw) Windows 7 PCs worth around $699.99 or more at participating stores, you get a free XBox 360 gaming console. Sweet Deal right? I thought so too.
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
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.
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

There has never been a time where the legendary Stan “The Man” Lee didn’t appear in any of the video games which the characters he created showed up in. Games ranging from Spider-Man in the good ol’ PlayStation 2 days even to this day with all the innovations being made in the video gaming industry. One of the comic characters he created, the Amazing Spider-Man, has become such a household name that when you even mention Peter Parker, people will surely be able to recognize who that is. Spider-Man from the comic book have spawned television shows, 3 movies plusRead More
