E3: Halo: The Master Chief Collection? Awful.

E3: Halo: The Master Chief Collection? Awful.

(Update: Bungie has been removed, I guess I just assumed that they were involved because of 1 and 2. Point still stands though. Continue with hate.) Now don’t get me wrong, when I was a wee lad of 14 I saved up for almost a year to get an Xbox (yeah the original big black clanky thing with the controller that could kill you, I’m old…) and this was mostly due to Halo. I played…

Wolfenstein: The New Order Sets a new standard

Wolfenstein: The New Order Sets a new standard

Wolfenstein, an historic franchise for  gaming, first arriving on the Apple II in 1981 likely before most of you, myself included, were born. It was a 2D adventure game where the focus was largely on stealth and resource management, bullets were scarce and nonviolent options were the preferred path. Then in 1992 Wolfenstein 3D set the FPS standard and established many of tropes we still see today. After playing a two hour demo of the game…

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Pre-View

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Pre-View

Deep in the heart of PAX East, a secret MOON BASE contained secrets about the up-coming Borderlands: Pre-Sequel. Okay, it wasn’t really hidden per se, but it was EXTREMELY secretive. Inside this moon base was the first real look at the new Borderlands title from 2K and Gearbox. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, where you are working for Handsome Jack, before he goes all psycho, so he’s kind of a good…

Nintendo Direct Announcement proves they are shaking up their conventions

Nintendo, everybody’s favorite company to dismiss, has been hurting lately, all the next-gen consoles are out and teasing the Wii U by making half of the Wii U’s life time sales in a day.
