It’s been quite the fun four months this blog has been operational, reporting and discussing many issues plaguing the industry. However, if I want this site to be something, to become a familiar name (through my delusions of grandeur), I’ll need to focus down the content. Not mentioning random issues that only some people can [...]
This article is part of the 30 Day Challenge, encouraging bloggers to post more content. I like the change of pace, and I’ll keep doing it so long as you guys, the readers, like these articles. Keeps things fun amid all the business banter. Let me know in the comments if I should continue posting.
The rarest of times Gabe Newell does an interview, he’s always candid. His refreshing honesty is something to treasure in this industry, where interviews are usually laced with fluff and self-preservation. Interestingly, his seemingly outgoing personality isn’t reflective of Valve’s stern privacy, a point that stirs discussion among business folk and the average PC [...]
Before I go into anything, note there’s spoilers in this post. If you haven’t finished Borderlands 2, go play and come back.
Inasmuch as anything, saying Borderlands 2 has the framework of a functioning story is utterly strange. The first game was notable for its subtle narrative–strictly as a mechanism to keep the chaos going–so to declare Gearbox [...]
Check out my Borderlands 2 review!
In the video gaming world, this time is almost lame duck–as the world prepares for Nintendo’s Wii U, games continually spill out for its competitors. One of those competitors is particularly confident in its console’s ability to battle against Nintendo, as Sony reiterated its devotion to the PS3 through 2015.
Awesome! The first actual review for Holygrenade! And what better game to give the royal treatment than Borderlands 2? A decisive sequel for an experimental IP, and the first major title leading to Christmas. Important stuff if you follow the industry intently. Anyway, here is my review of Gearbox’s Borderlands 2.
Before Borderlands, rarely had a game idolized [...]
This is mildly depressing. Anyone living in Canada or along the Canadian-American border will understand, whilst the rest of the world won’t. It’s just so matter-of-fact I haven’t said anything more truthful in my entire life (except that Borderlands 2 is awesome).
There won’t be hockey this year.
That sentence is so disruptive, explosively demoralizing, villainous, evil, [...]
After plunging myself into five hard-working hours of Borderlands 2, this before recovering from a dentist’s visit, I checked IGN to come across some interesting headlines. Among them was this gem, saying BioWare’s co-founders have left the company, to this news piece further detailing what the future holds for Mass Effect.
The relevant [...]
The Wall Street Journal is a credible source of information, or so I like to think, and today, through typical Internet rage, I discovered their “Speakeasy” section, covering “media, entertainment, celebrity and the arts.” It’s good the WSJ has this section, specifically when covering video games, because it shows a noticeable lack in knowledge from their writers and [...]
Hey guys, I missed the post-a-day quota, but I have a good excuse. I have a toothache that has made it hard to think, so writing seemed impossible.
I played World of Warcraft for ten months. But in that time I was able to indulge in the social aspect of MMOs and meet some tremendous people in [...]
