The Gaming Economy

Since 2007, I’ve been selling off my collection of games little by little. This doesn’t mean I don’t want to game anymore or even necessarily that I don’t want to play the games I sold ever again. Usually what happens is I really need cash ASAP and I have to go sell something. However, there are people that prey on this, so I will be discussing how to effectively buy and sell properly within the current gaming market…at least, according to me.

More Gun Sage Ideas

First of all, sorry for the lack of updates. Hopefully that will change now that I’m on a new schedule, though I’m running on 4 hours of sleep, so don’t count on it. Today I wanted to talk more about the battle system I’d like to have for Gun Sage. Previously I talked about how I wanted to incorporate many elements into one allowing for a true action RPG experience that sacrificed on neither front while also allowing for incredible gunplay and martial arts, emphasizing a need for both.

Why Dark Souls Is So Good

There have been many times before where I’ve talked about the difficulty in games and finding that nice butter zone all the while developing the game smartly so it’s definitively challenging with just the right amount of frustration that will keep you motivated, but constantly on edge the whole time you play. And honestly, there aren’t too many examples better than that of the Dark Souls series.

Ni No Kuni – How I Learned To Care Again

Ni no Kuni – Wrath of the White Witch came out in early 2013. As soon as I’d heard it was Studio Ghibli and Level 5 collaboratively working, I knew I wanted it. In fact, that was the sole reason I got a PS3 a few months later. I downloaded the game, played it for a couple of months, then set it down. It wasn’t a bad game, but it had its faults and some of those faults made it frustrating enough that I was hesitant to return to it.

Is It Possible To Be A Successful Fuck-Up?

I’ve been looking around at different games that are going to be coming out this year, just trying to set up pre-orders and whatever else, and I came across an old enemy: Idea Factory. What’s wrong with Idea Factory? Well, allow me to take you on a journey. Imagine this: it’s 2006 and you’re rounding out your college career working overnight security at a quiet place where you can study and, more importantly, get in a shitload of PSP and DS time.

Jake From State Farm – The Unrated Cut

Did you know the State Farm commercial featuring alleged infidelity and that all around pimp we know and love Jake actually had an original, unairable version? Me neither, so it must’ve been something I just made up! Warning, does feature some NSFW content. You’ve been warned. Enjoy!

Is The New Tomb Raider Sexist?

This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while, so here goes. No, the new Tomb Raider is not sexist. Sure, it’s very brutal toward Lara…ridiculously so in some cases to the point that you think the developers are getting their jollies at putting her into one perilous situation after another to the point that you think somewhere behind the scenes they’re chuckling when she gets hurt again and again and again…but I don’t think that’s necessarily the case.
