REPLY TO ALL: Kids Have Terrible Taste in Games and So Did You

Kids are judgmental assholes. I’m still a judgmental asshole, but that doesn’t mean my tastes haven’t evolved. REPLY TO ALL – The Horrible Night contributors answer gaming questions and try to determine who has the right opinion. What games/genres did you write off as a kid that you enjoy now?

REPLY TO ALL: How Much Borderlands?

So the last bit of Borderlands 2 DLC came out last week, right after The Pre-Sequel (developed by a different team) was announced for PC, 360, PS3. So, for the sake of this conversation, we can assume that the primary Borderlands team is working on a next-gen Borderlands 3. AND Telltale’s Borderlands series is starting… Continue reading

Mega Headlines: VR Whip Unity

I definitely think we’ll look back at this year’s GDC as the coming out party for Virtual Reality. Sony brought it, but then I wasted my snarky comments about Microsoft’s attempt to jump in because I never could have predicted the GameFace. I’m also hoping that before the year is done, we’ll look back and… Continue reading

It sucks that it… Continue reading

Mega Headlines: Twitch Mac Truth

All the screenshots and videos just looked like cutscenes that could be confused for the… Continue reading

EA Gets “Tuck Rule” Victory Over Madden Designer Courtesy of CA Northern District Court

I have not and will not claim to be an expert in Intellectual Property law. I’ve never passed the patent bar and, frankly, IP attorneys tend to be a little…strange. With that disclosure of a lack of practice-area expertise, I’m having a hard time with District Judge Breyer’s conclusions in granting EA a reprieve from… Continue reading
