Playing a video game can sometimes be the most selfish thing that someone can do with their time.

Spending long hours in front of a […]
This conference was more or less created through emotion and the need to save face from an otherwise horrific year. The conference started out with a pretty cool Augmented Reality teaser of Anthem in which a couple of Javelins take on a giant monster. This made the game feel more and more like a Destiny like creation from the makers […]

There is no denying that video games have come a long way.

He was actually excited to hear that the former general manager, Casey Hudson, was up to the task of taking over Bioware. This exodus comes just four months after the failure of thier flag ship series Mass Effect came out and it leads to speculation as to the true reason Flynn is stepping down. All we […]
With the release of Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy, rumors have begun making the rounds that more platforming games form the 90s will be making a return. For me, these games were easily 80% of the games that I played as a child. Games like Banjo-Kazooie, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, and Spyro would take up most if not all of […]
You watch a trailer, read reviews, watch the gameplay, and wait for your chance to play the next big game. You have been counting down the days and wondering if the game is going to hold up to all of your expectations. You go to pick it up at midnight and awkwardly wait in line with a bunch of people […]

From their first game Zombi, made in 1987, to their most recent installment in the Tom Clancy Saga, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Ubisoft has delighted us with stories and characters that will last for all time. My first experience with […]
