Giving Thanks: Endings

I read a quote long ago that said something along the lines of this: bad endings are more memorable than good ones. I’ve always cherished that quote, because it gives me hope as a gamer, movie lover, and avid reader that I don&r...

 
 
 
 

Giving Thanks: Still Thanks To Give

Giving Thanks: Twitch & Gaming

So as much as I enjoy blogging, one thing that will cause me to get away from getting things accomplished is watching a stream or two on Twitch. I will be the first to admit that I'm a huge addict. My passion & excit...

 
 
 
 

"Giving Thanks: for the Octopus"

I'm not actually American, so I don't celebrate this holiday, but I do eat Turkey so it's fine.  I just wanted to let everyone know that I am thankful for a great many things; this massive cardigan I'm wearing, the fact that I wa...

 
 
 
 

We All Have a Hero in Our Hearts

Have you ever played an online game and realized that the whole time, you’ve thought yourself the good guy? And every time someone kills you, they’re either a bastard, evil, or somehow dastardly?   A few days ago, I wa...

 
 
 
 

Fangs for the memories: Subversion with Eversion

Warning: As with any scary game, most will want to experience the spookiness fresh, without spoilers. The following will totally spoil Eversion in its entirety. Note that I'm so much of a scaredy cat that I still derived an amount of ...

 
 
 
 

Fangs for the Memories: F.E.A.R

I have played many horror games over the years and games with horror elements in it. Ravenholm in Half Life 2 still gives me the creeps (especially with the cinematic mod's visual overhaul). Resident Evil 4 is still one of the greates...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Fangs for the Memories: Sloth Monsters

I know they aren't called Sloth Monsters. But I was twelve so I had no idea what they were. Plus we had AOL dialup with parental controls so I doubt I could have found anything before being kicked off by my mother picking up the phone...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Fangs for the Memories: His name was Jason

Halloween is, without a doubt, my favorite time of the year. Since I can remember, I’ve always been a huge fan of horror movies, and things that were meant to scare you. Maybe it’s because I spent most of my childhood up N...

 
 
 
 

Fangs for the Memories: Eternal Darkness Bathtub Scene

Yup, anyone who played this game knows instantly what I'm talking about unless they were lucky enough to have missed the button prompt in the Roivas (hey, that's Savior spelled backwards! :ppppppp) mansion. It has no bearing on the plo...

 
 
 
 

Fangs for the memories: Always a (godd**n) lighthouse

Back before I began reading about games on great sites like Destructoid (ahem), I walked into a shop one day and saw a shiny cover for a new game that had recently come out for my new PS3. It had one of those shiny cardboard covers wit...

 
 
 
 

Fangs for the memories :Resident Evil 4

Now I know some of you are going to laugh but I am a little chicken shit when it comes to horror games. There's a reason I don't buy them or play them often. But out of the handful I have beaten RE1 and 4 comes to mind. The reason RE1 ...

 
 
 
 

A Crash Course on Gaming with an Orange Bandicoot

I don't remember how old I was during that time, but I was at some kid's house when it happened. I think it was a classmate's birthday party, so I was at least old enough to go to school. I don't recall much about the party itself, exc...

 
 
 
 

My Favorite Game: Yo, screw your desert island

I don't think it's really possible to have a “favorite” favorite game, or at least it's not possible for me. I've never been able to answer any of those hypothetical questions where you have to choose one album or movie or...

My Favorite Game: Final Fantasy Tactics

It seems almost expected that gamers around the world would, at the very least, consider a Final Fantasy title as their favorite or most-cherished game of all time. And, in truth, it feels almost cliche to choose one of the many title...

 
 
 
 

My favorite video game: Sonic 3 and Knuckles

How do you define a favorite video game? Is it the one that filled you with the most inspiration? If that's the case, then the clear winner would be Skies of Arcadia, a JRPG for the Dreamcast that presented a bright world full of wonde...

 
 
 
 

My Favorite Game: Super Mario World

My favourite game: (Thief: The Dark Project)

Whenever I play any medieval-like games, I often look down on archers. Sure, they're equally important in real-life medieval warfares, but on games, I more than often preferred to ignore them. I mean, why be an archer when you could be...

 
 
 
 

My favorite game: Silent Hill 2

There have been many, many people who wrote why Silent Hill 2 is such a brilliant game. Our old friend Jim Sterling repeatedly called it his favorite game ever, Yahtzee Croshaw drools on it every chance he has, Shamus Young of Th...

 
 
 
 

My Favorite Game: Xenogears

The "Favorite Game" is a topic as old as the medium itself.  These days, it's hard to pick a single favorite.  Hell, I have about 25 fluctuating favorites at any given time.  However, when someone asks me to pick on...
