    The term “First Person Shooter” doesn’t truly sum up the Arma franchise. The Arma games are military sims that favor hyper-realism for players who want more than the “One man army” experience of most other shooters.  As in real war, there are no regenerating shields, guns aren’t magic wands that send bullets unerringly towards their...

    Planet in a Bottle is so simple that it should be a crime to call it an actual game. I refuse to sit here and tell you that the game is a whole lot like Hatchi or Tamagotchi because, just no. Planet in a Bottle is a cute little game with 2D graphics and no...

    Game designers try to find a balance between the Player’s head and hands.  Some games, like turn-based strategy, are focused entirely on making the Player think.  Others, like bullet hell shooters, test their reflexes.  Fractured Soul puts players in command of a character who runs and shoots like in an action game, but it also...

    Nintendo has spent the last few decades supplying us with excellent entries in their series, and their most profitable franchise, the Mario games, has been no exception. However, after several Mario games were revealed at E3, I have to wonder if the economy and Nintendo’s lackluster success with the 3DS have gone to their heads....

    I don’t talk about video games much outside of my writing.  I talk to other writers and people ingrained in the world of release dates, console wars, and promotional events; but I have so many friends outside of the frey that we talk about a myriad of other topics.  I might pass along a game...

    Sony debuted PlayStation Home in December 2008. So, at the time of its closure on March 2015, the community’s existence will be a little over six years.
