Independence Day Weekend: What to Play….
Every July 4th, we Americans celebrate our independence and victory over the English with cook outs, beer, and satanic nature in all of us to blow ourselves up with purdy lights. If you are antisocial, hate grilled food, detest beer, or are Atomosophobic, then we have a list of games that can feed your patriotism and need to blow shit up without the likely hood of losing any appendages. Rambo Arcade (arcade) – this particular title may be new to some, it was to me be before stepping into the local Dave & Buster’s, but man does it scream “America F@#K Yea!” It is a light gun game in the same vein as Time Crisis but replace the vibrating over sized pistols with large vibrating machine guns. A Sega published title, this game hit the American arcades in 2009. TheRead more…

WoW Cataclysm: A Lady’s Perspective on Patch 4.1
The great sundering of Azeroth at the great hand of Deathwing changed the world as we knew it forever. We’ve had four months to adjust to the changes we see in the landscape and quests, have had ample time to memorize the strategies for the new heroics, and some of the hardcore raiding guilds have even finished heroic raids. And with the most recent patch, Patch 4.1, we have new instances that drop epic loot, a fantastic guild finder which will help you find a guild that fits your needs, incentives for healers and tanks queuing solo such as (very) rare pets and mounts, and cross-faction Bind on Account items. I’m in a casual raiding guild so the guild finder doesn’t interest me much at all. However, I can definitely see the need and appeal. Hopefully, this new device willRead more…

Gamer Charities… Changing the Lives of Children Forever
When we turn on the TV, Radio or even read articles on the web all we see are advertisements for the latest and greatest, news or horrors befalling some poor country or state, or any other number of atrocities that fall upon the living. The news only seems to recognize the rich and powerful or bad news. I think it’s time to recognize the people who go out and try to make a difference in the world and change it for the better. While I may not have the mass resources of a major broadcasting company or an Oil exec I think the recognition is important. Many of you probably have never heard of ChildsPlayCharity or TheHumbleBundle as they are not advertised across the net and lets face it many of us, especially in the United States tend to forgetRead more…

The End Has Come
Well as most have heard or encountered the Playstaion Network is down. It has been down for about three days now. Now breath as you read I know its hard. This problem couldn’t have come at a worse time for Playstation either with the releases of Socom 4, Portal 2, and Mortal Kombat this week. I too am victim for I cannot play Socom 4.….it still hurts. Now Sony has come out and said oh we have a server hiccup it should be fixed in two days time. Only it hasn’t been fixed. Several excuses and reasons for the outage have made their way to the web including too much server traffic with the new realses, downloadable games crashing the server, or even a hacker attack. Basically what it boils down too is my games don’t work and IRead more…

The Lost Art of Critical Thinking in a Google Age
This isn’t really related to gaming, not directly anyway but I pride myself in thinking that your gamers have a higher then normal intelligence. That being said please read on. This came upon me the other day when I wondered how I got all of my information for a paper I was writing. How did I come to my conclusions, how did I find the information, how did I decide how to format it, etc? What defined my entire paper? Before the advent of the modern search engine anything that you wanted to learn about you either had to ask someone, watch the local news and come to your own conclusions or go read an encyclopedia or book on the topic and then think about the information which you had just injested. With my most recent work ALL of theRead more…

Our Favorite Games
No matter how long you have been in the industry, whether it be 5 years of 25 years there is always that one game that holds a special place in your heart. It could be the latest release of Halo: Reach or back to an old Atari game that nobody has played in two decades. I got to thinking about this the other day realizing that most games barely hold my interest for more then a few months before I shelve them to most likely never play them again and to most likely to forget after some time. I probably own of 400 games across multiple platforms including the PC, Wii, PS3, PS2, Xbox360, N64 and so forth. However there is always that one game that stuck in the back of my head years after I had played it and I stillRead more…
