The Horrible Gamer #010: The Blocky and Wormy Road Back

Gaming as an escape sometimes isn’t as easy as choosing a random game and just going with it. With so many contrasting highs and lows going on in my personal life lately, I needed a gaming outlet that felt mindless without feeling like a waste of time. I’ve never been so thankful for an alpha… Continue reading

The Horrible Gamer #009: The Tweaked

PC mods are pretty much a right of passage for any PC gamer. Since my March upgrade, I had only been playing the vanilla versions of my favorite games for fear of not knowing where to start with any mods worth using in any game. Then our fellow adventurer, Ethan, provided me with a quick list of… Continue reading

The Horrible Gamer #008: The British Pinch

The one thing that has always intrigued me about the PlayStation Vita, and this may sound shallow, is the hardware design itself. This is the sexiest portable gaming device available with an even sexier screen. I managed to hold off on purchasing one until very recently, but after I finally upgraded to PlayStation Plus, I… Continue reading

The Horrible Gamer #007: The Gut Reaction

We’ve talked a lot around here about how co-op enhances most gaming experiences, and now the same can be said for E3. For over 10 years, I’ve consumed E3 coverage almost entirely solo. Sure I always come back around to talking with friends/Horrible Night writers about what I’ve seen, but the actual acts of watching… Continue reading

The Horrible Gamer #006: The I in Team

I have to hand it to Ronimo Games for its year-long and impressive support of Awesomenauts. I hadn’t played the game in over 9 months, and its appearance in the most recent Humble Bundle reminded me just how busy Ronimo has been at updating the game with new characters, customization options, and overall balancing. It… Continue reading

The Horrible Gamer #004: The Release

My gaming brain was definitely focused on my childhood in the past week, mainly because Nintendo isn’t exactly instilling confidence in fans like me heading into E3 (nice try in shutting me up by distracting me with Super Metroid by the way). I’m not sure if it was out of spite that I randomly went… Continue reading

The Horrible Gamer #002: The Next Hundred Hours

I’ve probably played through the introduction to Borderlands 2 at least 6 times now. For some unknown reason, it took me over 120 hours of Borderlands gaming to finally play with 4 people. I’ve had plenty of duos and a few threesomes, but organizing 4 people on the same platform at the same time takes… Continue reading

The Horrible Gamer #001: The Real Heist

I (along with countless others) had been looking forward to Monaco for years. Case and point – the Horrible Night crew actually scheduled and followed through with a 4 player co-op session during launch week. That level of timezone coordination is unheard of for us outside of a charity marathon. The results were not what I… Continue reading
