Just 5 More Minutes: Light Gun Heroics, Light Gun Shame with Area 51

As a child, I was heavily influenced by the action stars I saw  in movies and the animated heroes I watched on TV. I wanted nothing more than to be like them as their sense of justice and undying selflessness were traits I was attracted to, even at a young age. I knew one day… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Undead End 2 Surprised My Cynic Muscles

I’ve been reviewing browser games for quite some time now and I’ve learned to take the prospects of zombies games with a grain of salt. Everyone is doing them and while I love zombies, not everyone does them as well as they possibly could. When I first saw Undead End 2, I assumed it would… Continue reading

Editorial Malfunction: My Old Web Comics and Why I Gave Up On Making Web Comics

by with Comments Off on Editorial Malfunction: My Old Web Comics and Why I Gave Up On Making Web Comics

Somebody once said that when life throws you lemons, make lemonade. Well, life has thrown me lemons in the form of writer’s block and video game headline apathy, making my usual “Tuesday editorial” nearly impossible to complete (though I have a very scathing opinion on Pokemon in the hopper for next week). So instead of… Continue reading

E3 13 Aftermath: Game Certainty and Policy Evolution

I really don’t think the gaming industry has ever been more fascinating than it is right now. The culmination of the odd state of transition for game development and publishing models combined with the announcement of new consoles set to define how the next generation will begin is making for a rather unpredictable future. That… Continue reading

E3 13: Ethan’s Obligatory E3 Observation Post

E3 is over and while it’s been nice to get back to the normalcy of video game coverage, I was surprisingly excited by the bevy of information tidbits that came out of the show. Because I respect you all, I’ll keep the E3 saturation to a minimum…starting next week that is. For now, I figured… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Slime Laboratory is the Prequel to a Brawny Commercial

by with Comments Off on Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Slime Laboratory is the Prequel to a Brawny Commercial

I decided to take a nap today after a late night gossip session with Mr. Justin Lacey and almost forgot to write Cheap and Dirty. Fortunately, being cheap and dirty is built into me and my body’s natural alarm system roused me from my slumber. This has allowed me to bring you Slime Laboratory, a… Continue reading

Preparing for the Oculus Rift

I had the pleasure of taking the Oculus Rift for a spin yesterday and boy am I excited. While the development model is but a shadow of what the retail version will be, it still blew my expectations out of the water. While I was pretty adamant about the recent 3D trend being nothing more… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Decision 2: New City is a Good Gaming Decision

I like zombies and I like the top -down perspective so it’s pretty obvious that I’d like the game Decision 2: New City because it features both prominently. If it’s lacking anything, it’s a catchy name. I didn’t play the original Decision, though I’m assuming it was the wrong one since there was a sequel, but… Continue reading
