Radio Waves for 02/10/14

Look who’s back. Fresh off The 2013 Grimmys, it’s safe to say that video games definitely happened last year and they’re gonna continue happening this year. I’ve spent the last month returning to games that I’d barely cracked the surface on and pushed myself to get to the end credits, whether I wanted to or… Continue reading

Open world games are insane. Having a wide-open expanse of chaos and opportunity on all sides is simply insane. Maybe that’s why games of this variety are so well-received: when the leash is unhooked and your legs unshackled, anything is possible. Whether traveling in a car, boat or by the speed of your own two… Continue reading

The only thing greater than having a full week’s vacation from work to catch up on games is having a new pile dropped on top of you during that same week. The dungeons of Skyrim have been replaced with the ruins of Dragon’s Crown. What used to be the demons of Shin Megami Tensei IV… Continue reading

I’m not the biggest fan of summer as an adult. I don’t get a 3-month vacation, it gets “stanky hot” where I live and, worst of all, there are hardly any new game releases I care about. Luckily, there are plenty of fresh games I’m still playing and soul-crushing digital ultra sales to look forward… Continue reading

It’s happening, folks! We just hit May, but the storm of awesome movies is fast approaching and it starts with Iron Man 3. This usually means that gamers can expect the usual product placement of soda cans, fast food and rushed tie-in video games. Like death, taxes and split-second bathroom urges, this is inevitable. What’s… Continue reading

April showers bring retro gaming. The releases have hit a bit of a lull, allowing one such as myself some time to catch up and breathe (when allergies and stormy downpours aren’t thinking otherwise). What better excuse to hit up some smaller titles that remind me of the days in my parents’ basement in front… Continue reading

I’d describe myself as a “gaming tree,” firmly rooted to where my consoles and computers are like an expensive security blanket. On the surface, I can’t say I really have any issues with travelling. I definitely am aware of the benefits in getting away from the familiar and having unique experiences. Maybe the reluctance comes from in… Continue reading

Back in 2007, I was surprised by a journey I took under the sea to a place called Rapture. It was majestic, yet dreary. Foreign, yet familiar. Wet. Very, very wet. The highest honor I can bestow upon Rapture is that I’ll never forget it. It’s not rare for video games (or anything, really) to… Continue reading

Video games are some of the most comfortable forms of escapism available at my fingertips. If I want to drive a taxi off a pier, I can play Grand Theft Auto. If I want to jump-kick a sightseer off a pier, I can play Sleeping Dogs. Seriously, the pier is just a dangerous place. In terms of… Continue reading

A typical year in video games tends to be lopsided in terms of big name releases. Slow in the beginning, but everyone is swimming in AAA titles by the holidays. What happens as those big titles get completed? I’ve chosen to reach shoulder-deep into the dirtier side of gaming and  play two poorly-received games, hoping… Continue reading
