Remake It So: Eternal Darkness

During my college years, the Gamecube was my primary source of electronic entertainment. I was financially strapped at the time, so video games had to take a back seat to food, rent and most importantly beer. It was during this time that my cash strapped roommate was forced into the bargain bin section of Gamestop… Continue reading

Call of Duty is No Star Wars

Things come and take the mantle of “Next Big Thing” seemingly every few months. I hate to put his name anywhere near our wonderful website here, but Justin Bieber is that for tweens everywhere right now. It’s like in the NBA, every journalist is always ready to lay the crown of “Next Michael Jordan” on… Continue reading

You Are Just Teasing, Teasing Me At This Point

Game trailers are what drew me to the internet. The sneak peeks at upcoming games in all of their slow downloading and pixelated glory.

Let me back up a bit and explain where I’m coming from. I’ll start by saying I’m a very shallow gamer. I’ve owned almost every… Continue reading

Remake It So: Body Harvest

Despite their reputation, I’ve never had issues with remakes or reboots. In an age of dwindling originality, I don’t mind seeing someone else’s take on a beloved series or a graphical upgrade on a cult classic. With all the push to bring these oldies back to the limelight, a stalwart of my gaming past has… Continue reading

You’re Gonna Get It Anyway: Xbox 360

When you think about buying a console, different criteria should run through your head. Can I afford it? Will I get my money’s worth? Does it have games I want to play? Do I write for a gaming website and feel like I need to have one so I can have all three major consoles… Continue reading
