Guild Wars 2, Online Gaming is… Fun?!

Once upon a time, I heard that Guild Wars 2 would change the way MMORPGs work forever. Me being me, I took the sarcastic approach and said, “Psh, sure, like they can make an MMO that’s actually consistently entertaining.” Secretly drawn by the frail hope of finally discovering a good MMO, I decided to buy […]

Hawken Makes Mechs Look Pretty

Hawken’s still in closed beta, but I’m going to go ahead and chat about it anyway. As an avid fan of action packed high-customization action packed mech fighters, I personally found this one to be strategic, aesthetic, entertaining, and jaw-shatteringly frustrating. Could just be the fact that I’m not into heavily competitive games, or that […]

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Needs a Revolution

I’m not sure I entirely understand why Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is considered out of beta. I mean, I would assume that it’s because games out of beta can earn a bit of money by being sold as “complete games,” but Chivalry doesn’t fit that description. To be blunt, it’s a damned mess. The tutorial’s buggy […]

Terraria is NOT Minecraft, Okay?

Before I actually started playing Terraria, I was convinced that it was just a cheap 2D replica of Minecraft. At a glance, you may agree with this sentiment, but that’s why I’m here to convince you otherwise. Gameplay-wise, Terraria and Minecraft have many elements in common, such as crafting, digging, mining, and constructing. However, the […]

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, Canvas the Castle

Get it? You do? Then why aren’t you laughing? Nostalgic but new, Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin (for the Nintendo DS) maintains the familiar 2D-platformer aspect of their earlier games while smoothly adding in a wide array of weapons, spells, and sub-weapons with which to violently beat your macabre enemies to death. Or re-death, as the […]
