Assassin’s Creed Unity Is Nowhere Near As Broken As Many Claim

Assassin’s Creed Unity Is Nowhere Near As Broken As Many Claim

I’ve just polished off and published my review of Assassin’s Creed Unity and although I sadly fell behind the curve of the general gaming media outlets, I did not expect the sheer wall of feces that washed over me as I checked the reasons behind the scores from other critics

Can We Stop Restricting Developers With This Morality Bullshit?

Can We Stop Restricting Developers With This Morality Bullshit?

Destructive Creations recently introduced the wider gaming audience to their upcoming isometric shooter with a “disturbing atmosphere of mass killing”, Hatred. The surprising response from many critics and big-name media outlets have seen outrageous claims and accusations, with some even attempting to get the game banned. This is a complete contradiction to the very nature of video-game development and I for one am ashamed at reception Hatred has received

Honest Gaming Journalism Doesn’t Pay But It Sure Is Good Fun

Honest Gaming Journalism Doesn’t Pay But It Sure Is Good Fun

To my complete and utter surprise recent events within the gaming industry seemed to have alerted a large number of gamers to something I’ve always seen as so painfully obvious it caused my genitalia to retreat to a highly uncomfortable location – the levels of corruption, dishonesty and to put it bluntly, utter bullshit that plagues the journalistic aspects of the gaming industry today

Zombie MMO Fans Attempt To Launch A Survivor Into Space……And Fail

Zombie MMO Fans Attempt To Launch A Survivor Into Space……And Fail

With the shroud of misinformation and horseshit lies that surround Alpha releases nowadays it can be tough to find one that is actually true to the word. However, die hard zombie MMO fans have done just that as they display the true definition of alpha testing and prove there’s plenty of fun to be had prior to a games release

Why Destiny Will be the Biggest Disappointment of 2014

Why Destiny Will be the Biggest Disappointment of 2014

Like many others, I was fortunate enough to get into the Destiny beta test last week. I have been hyped on Destiny for a very long time and have followed all of the development but after the public beta however, I was extremely disappointed. Destiny was not the “game of the future” like the hype would have suggested

Game Dev Tycoon – Stimulating Simulation

Game Dev Tycoon – Stimulating Simulation

A game has popped up on steam called Game Dev Tycoon, I had originally just pegged it for another stupid simulation game like the thousands that have been infecting steam lately. What I got I was surprised with, a well thought out and very entertaining simulation of a starting up indie developer

Dark Souls 2 – A Game Without Soul?

Dark Souls 2 – A Game Without Soul?

Like many of you I was so overjoyed at the release of Dark Souls 2, it was hyped up to be an amazing game, and while I played it I certainly thought so, but I’ve recently gone back to the first Dark Souls and it’s really made me think harder about its successor. While Dark Souls 2 is a very fun and interesting game, as far as the souls universe is concerned I don’t think it was on par with Dark Souls or Demon Souls for that matter

Does $500 Million Spent on Destiny Guarantee A Quality Experience?

Does $500 Million Spent on Destiny Guarantee A Quality Experience?

There was a recent announcement that the production cost of Destiny will be close to $500 million. Although this isn’t just development costs seeing as it includes advertising and other not strictly development costs, it’s still a lot of money that’s technically being spent on the game

Borderlands 2 Vita: First Impressions

Borderlands 2 Vita: First Impressions

As I’m sure many of you are aware, Borderlands 2 released yesterday for the PlayStation Vita, packaged into the new Vita Slim bundle. Yesterday morning, I knew I wasn’t going to pick up the Slim, but was still undecided on Borderlands 2. Was it really worth re-purchasing a ported version of a game I’ve already played? After watching a few gameplay videos and realizing that people were ebaying voucher codes for cheaper than retail, I decided to snag one. Impulse buy

Hero Look: Fract OSC

Hero Look: Fract OSC

The first Hero Look in the feature is a game called Fract OSC. The game is a mixture of puzzle elements with music sequencers or other music influences. By the end of the game it was enjoyable just to walk around and puzzle solve even if the puzzles took a while

MCM Comic-Con (My first convention)

MCM Comic-Con (My first convention)

I attended my first convention during the weekend, the MCM Comic-Con. It takes place in Ireland in the capital of Dublin. I have to say I was nervous; I took the long bus ride to the convention. It was my first convention, and I didn’t know what to expect
