In spirit of a site redesign, I wanted to lay out some preliminary things. Don’t worry, Holygrenade won’t ever be bogged down by bureaucracy. In fact, HG is so anti-rule we could be considered anarchist. Okay, I’m done.
Now included in every Electronic Arts title from this day forward is microtransactions. Touchy news, yes, and even touchier when perceiving the future. This could be good though, in a way. Read on to find out why.
Inner Vision touched me personally as a game that puts the player in a precarious, almost otherworldly situation. It’s impossible to know how you’d act, and impossible to realize the ramifications. That’s what makes it so engaging.
The new Assassin’s Creed game leaked to a muted response. Pirates and the like are fun, sure, but I wonder how this translates to a general audience.
It’s always sad to see outlets close and hard-working folks go jobless. But that’s the nature of business. The three closings today mean more in the long term though, a shift in how games coverage is produced and promoted. Read on to find out!
I don’t know how frequently I’ll feature Kickstarter funds here on Holygrenade, but because the site is now a thing (and, well, I like having content) I’ll give it a shot. The first from Dreamwagon Games, Haxel recently went to the crowdsourcing site to see their game go live.
Social networking is ubiquitous, yet the game industry (an inherently social industry) hasn’t embraced the concept. The PlayStation 4 might change all that.
If you hadn’t heard, Sony had this conference. And, in sort of a low-key (just kidding) outing, the PlayStation 4 was officially announced. In 1500 words, I back everything into a post instead of firing off 30 posts on one topic. Grab a hot cup of java and enjoy.
I debated writing about Destiny because the press event was more a showoff event, how publishers can easily control the press. Disappointingly, no gameplay. But one odd nugget stuck out: no PC edition was announced. Just consoles. That’s a wrongheaded move.
The first submission ever on Holygrenade! This comes from one Cloe Ansari, whose personal blog is Cloe Plays. Her road to gaming was unconventional, but she made it and we’re glad to have her produce something for the site. Maybe this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship (to quote Casablanca).
