Editorial: Five Scary Games

Horror and scares in video games are very subjective to the person playing them. In this editorial, I want to talk about what I consider to be the five scariest games ever made.

In fifth place we have the original Resident Evil on the PlayStation.  Who can forget the first time the zombie dog jumps though the …

Editorial: Pokemon, As Good As Gold

 

I have always been baffled by the popularity of Pokemon games. Pokemon is one of those games that will always cost a fair amount of money, even used and even if you are seeking one of the earlier versions. So, much to my dismay, it appears I will never be able to buy Pokemon at a stunningly cheap price for my littl…

Editorial: On OnLive

The internet is taking over the world.

By now you’ve likely heard of OnLive. Ethan briefly mentioned it in his GDC roundup yesterday, and among the news that emerged from the show, OnLive’s announcement has made the biggest media splash. For those of you who aren’t quite familiar with …

Editorial: I GDC a good E3

Okay so that title is terrible, but sometimes I can’t resist.

GDC is wrapping up, and for a show that is supposed to be focused on developers, it can house some pretty important announcements for us gamers. For example, LittleBigPlanet was shown off in 2007 which started to shift a generally negati…

Editorial: Used Games

Used games are set to make GameStop $2 billion in the fiscal year 2009. Most game developers and publishers would like to see the end of the used game market. They say that they do not see any money from used game sales. This is of course true, but only to a certain extent.

How many gamers have had the experience o…

Editorial: Rank Up!

For the past three months, I have been playing Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. This isn’t a rant about games that are too long – you can just look at Ethan’s latest post for that, and it doesn’t apply here anyway. Rather, it’s a short, casual impression of my thoughts on the ga…

Editorial: Games are Too Long

Two nights ago I finally finished Tales of Vesperia. And while I’ve only had a 360 for about 6 months, I had ToV before any other game for the system. In fact, I bought the special edition a few months before I even owned the console. Anyway, I had some fun with the game, and was pleasantly surprised with t…

Editorial: Super Metroid

Classic: gamers throw this word around far too often. I want to spend the next few weeks talking about what I consider to be classic games. Many of the games written about will be old, however I want to pose the following question: does a game have to be old to be considered a classic?

Take yourself back to 18 Apr…

Editorial: Fran and Balthier: Partners in Crime

Every self-respecting gamer has a set of favorite characters to go along with her set of favorite games. I am no exception to this rule. My list, perhaps unfortunately, is an ever-evolving and ever-changing creature, liable to shift form and color faster than a hummingbird can flap his wings.

Editorial: Killzone 2

In times gone past one could look towards the PC for first-person shooters. How times have changed. While it is possible to debate that the genre is still best played on the PC, a large number of impressive titles have come the way of the consoles in the last decade or so. While not wanting to give people a histo…
