- Tobias Bilgery’s About Love Hate And The Other Ones is, alphabetically, the first game in my steam library. It also requires very little hard-drive space to run and I assumed it would take very little time to complete.
- Hi, again! It's time for Part 3 of my big countdown of my favorite games of all time! This is a great way to celebrate the holidays!
- A Song of Ice and Fire is dark, and full of terrors. While everyone knows the Red Woman Meilsandre, the other priest of the Lord of Light often gets overlooked (despite accomplishing feats that make the red witch go pale). Thoros of Myr, who was little more than a roaring drunk who fought with swords that he set aflame, re-discovered his faith while saying rites over a fallen comrade. Now re-dedicated to the church, the sheer power of the god R'hllor flows through him, and allows him to accomplish truly awe-inspiring feats.
- We may not have gotten Doom: Eternal this year, but Bethesda is hoping to soften that blow with news of DLC… for the Doom and Doom 2 console ports. Revealed during Bethesda’s Doom 26th anniversary livestream, the original two Doom games will be receiving DLC that will expand the user experience and serve as a bit of nostalgia for those that grew up with the series.
- Hey, remember that multiplayer Resident Evil game you weren’t sure you wanted to buy? Well, Capcom knew you’d be at an impasse and decided to make the decision for you - by bundling it with Resident Evil 3, scheduled to release on April 3, 2020. Wait, what’s that? A Resident Evil 3 remake, you ask? Yes, all of that speculation we’ve been doing for the past week and a half based on leaks was accurate - we are getting that remake to Resident Evil 3 we’ve been pining for.
- I quite often feel that gaming is very often overlooked as an art form, even scoffed at by various groups of people as connoisseurs of art and I feel it is unfairly so. As a medium, I believe it can explore all the themes traditional art styles do and add interesting perspectives to them as they games allow players to experience them for themselves from a different perspective. Yes, there are games that are just silly fun, but there are plenty of games that explore a wide variety of subjects in interesting ways.
- Well, then: After I thought he really couldn't outdo himself after Ridley, Joker, Banjo-Kazooie, and even the Piranha Plant combined, Masahiro Sakurai-san has proven yet again that he can still totally break the Smash Bros. fanbase with his incredible announcements.
- I’ve been playing video games since I was a kid, back when I was filled with anxiety and had a hard time with multiplayer games. I still do have a hard time playing PUBG, even though I paid the full $30 to have it on my computer. I’ve thought about Overwatch, knowing its ranking systems and awesome story beyond team-based online gameplay could maybe fit my style a bit better. But I think it’s just the way I am—I prefer story-based games that I can enjoy at my own pace, without having to rely on others.
- "Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start:" the Konami Code that many of us recognize by heart. Contra was an NES game that I loved to play as a kid, and still do as an adult. In this article, I'm going to walk everyone through how to make extra lives from this run-and-gun game. Two months ago, I wrote a DIY article about teaching everyone how to make a block from Super Mario Bros. 3. It was the first time in almost 20 years that I've done any perler bead art. To me, doing this hobby is not only therapeutic, but exciting. You can check out that article here.
- As a gamer, I'm always looking for new things to check out, explore, etc. E3 normally one of those events that pique that curiosity for me every year. There's always a presentation that just has that 'it' factor going for it, whether it's a game, or a console release, or maybe another console competitor altogether. This year, Google decided to make themselves known by unveiling a truly ambitious vision for the future of gaming with the Google Stadia reveal. Console-free, Cloud-based gaming isn't a new idea. Back in the day, a service called OnLive had essentially the same kind of dream; before Google even thought about stepping out into these cloud gaming streets, the folks at OnLive had the bright idea to stream games of all types for a subscription price. Of course, this was in the very infancy of cloud computing, so the dream of cloud gaming was still kind of like an unexplored country of sorts. OnLive's time in the spotlight was short-lived, as the company was eventually bought out by Sony entertainment, but their early foray into the promise of cloud gaming was a glimpse into a truly different direction for gaming. Fast forward to over a decade later. We're seeing a re-birth to the concept of truly console-free gaming (and some say the return of the spirit of OnLive) with Google's announcement of their ambitious vision for gaming with Google Stadia. Google had already been seriously exploring the idea of streaming and containing games within their cloud infrastructure with the beta program Google Stream prior to Stadia's introduction at E3. Check out the Connect E3 presentation below:
- We, as a species, are pretty strange. We're strange because we like being scared for the sake of being scared when experiencing a thriller flick or survival horror story. Being scared gives us that strange burning sensation in our chests, and adrenaline rush that we can't acquire from an extreme sport or cheap drug. Whether it's from watching a horror movie alone at night or playing through a survival campaign on the most intense difficulty available; fear always manages to channel its way in through the media cord and rattle our bodies to the very core.

Gaming IRLWhen the virtual world becomes a reality. Gaming, in real life.
- Original and immense "ENT" Destiny. Creating a unique universe, the scriptwriters went all out and prescribed a long, rich history of the local world. It seems that the fans of Homer worked on it - the events here are hardly inferior in epic to the Iliad and Odyssey.
- Before I write any further, let's establish some vital ground rules:
- So, Fortnite did something most of us never thought possible yesterday. That's right, they actually pulled the plug on the game, and left 250,000,000 players stranded and isolated, with only a scalp to scratch and a bucket to cry into for grievance sake. Well, I mean, I didn't need the bucket. In fact, I bloody hate Fortnite. So, I just sort of laughed when I heard the news.
- Since 2008, the online gambling sector has shown steady growth in revenues. In 2018, the market value hit $45 billion. This trend is expected to persist in the future.
- We all have been there; you are at school or work and have nothing to do, it is the end of the day, and you are bored. Do you know that playing a video game for 15 minutes boosts your energy levels and spirit? You take a small break, and your mind gets some rest—a win-win situation if you ask me! We have made a list with our favorite games to kill some time.
- Double Bubble Slots has been designed by Gamesys, and it provides players with a top slot experience. It is a game that is well-known in the industry, and one where players can win big. There are huge prizes available, ranging from £80,000 to £2000,000. So, when you play Double Bubble Slots, you know you are in for a real treat.
- I've been a regular player of Overwatch since mid-2017 and I've racked up over 1000 hours during my many triumphs and even more failures. Since the game is over three years old, and has arguably been losing popularity over the last year, along with Blizzard's recent controversy over the Hong Kong protests, the transition of Overwatch into the world of handheld gaming couldn't have been at a more inopportune time.
- Whether you are looking for bone-shaking scares or adrenaline-raising thrills, we have it all under one roof.
- As we enter the final greatest hits era of the current-gen consoles, I think it's fair to say we've seen some magnificent titles over the last five years. And that even goes out to Microsoft, too. Because as much as I'd like to fangirl over the idea that Sony produces the superior exclusives, I can also vouch for Xbox and some of their golden titles, too. But sadly, as I look back over the years and try to shove back the biased opinion over the two consoles, I still always manage to come to the same conclusion. And that is that Playstation just has better games overall. I'm sorry if that offends certain players, and I bloody know it more than likely will.Yes, I've played Forza. Yes, I've played Gears of War. But do those two or three good experiences make up for the handfuls of stunning journeys I've encountered with the PS4 exclusives? No, I'm afraid not. Because Sony knows how to make a good game, and once they produce gold, they strike it and milk that mine for all it's worth.So let's take a look at some of the most memorable and successful PS4 exclusives to date, and should you be in a position to choose between consoles, perhaps this will whet your appetite for the better choice! *wink wink*It's not too late to switch sides, Microsoft fans. There's plenty of PS Exclusives for you to get your hands on. And when the time finally arrives where you can pick up current-gen consoles for bargain prices, hopefully, you'll know what to do.Allow me to enlighten you.I present to you, PS4 EXCLUSIVES THAT CRUSHED THE XBOX ONE.
'NCAA Football 14': OU, Stillwater, and Georgia Tech to the SEC Dynasty Mode Build Season 1, Part 9—Week 6: Tulsa @ #4 OklahomaNormally OU-Tulsa is on at least regional TV, but based on the schedule we were given by the SEC, and my picking Texas, Kansas State, and Tulsa as our non-conference schedule, this is by default our lowest profile game and by default the pay-per-view game. Mind you I'm calling it that for our purposes and the logic of knowing our real world, but as far as NCAA Football 14 is concerned it's got a National TV Slot, so yeah us on our Recruiting Grade for Television Exposure. It's always bugged me when SEC teams have cupcake games really late in the season, it never seems to make sense. Early October isn't very egregious though compared to others having it really, really late. The usual excuse is the workload of the difficult schedules, and in some ways I guess we're somewhat embracing this as this is the week before Texas. Tulsa is at least a competent FBS Program. As we go to the week's results oddly the first three games on the docket are games that were played in real life this past week: Utah/UCLA, Texas/Iowa State, and Indiana/Penn State.
'NCAA Football 14': OU, Stillwater, and Georgia Tech to the SEC Dynasty Mode Build Season 1, Part 8—Week 5: LSU @ #4 OklahomaYes as hard as it is to believe, in our created world within NCAA Football 14 this is Unranked LSU @ #4 Oklahoma. A lot of this seems to be down to just how College Football Polls are popularity contests and arbitrary and quirky at times. Losing in Week 1 to TCU, albeit at a neutral site, and also only having played three games in the first four weeks are likely culprits. Still very similarly to the Oklahoma @ Kansas State game in real life this year, we pretty much know that this unranked state is a mere technicality and this is one of the better if not best teams in the country.
- Boredom - the destination you arrive at when you have done it all or simply don't know where to go next. This grey area of no inspiration or entertainment is quite horrible, to be honest. When I hit this point I, usually, move on. But in this case, I am not that bored, and I find myself just waiting for that next update to hit the game.
- The Many Ways To Be a Gamer
- With the drop of Pokémon Masters on August 29th, it's been pretty hectic in the Pokémon fandom. Players have been excited to start building their teams and racing to be the best of the best—heck, it'd feel pretty great to beat both legends, Red and Cynthia, in the same tournament, don't you think?
- I know I’ve spoken at length before about Majora’s Mask, but most of those discussions have been centred around how dark the game is or how mysterious so many elements of Termina are. Today, I want to take a look back at Link’s strangest adventure, but actually take a look at the masks that Link obtains throughout the game. Now, as one may easily deduce, masks are an integral part of the game. Link can get a grand total of 24 masks throughout Termina, each of which serve him in a different way. Of course, it is not compulsory to get every single mask in the game to finish it, but there is a certain reward for obtaining all the masks in the form of the Fierce Deity Mask, one of the Transformation Masks (which, by the way, will not be featured on this list for reasons I shall explain shortly). In this list, I’m going to be going over my Top 5 masks from the game. How I will be ranking them depends on utility, aesthetic and personal enjoyment, and as such, the list will be subjective, so if you have a different list or if you disagree, that’s totally fine! I would love to have a discussion with you if you don’t agree, because learning different points of view is always a plus.
- I love everything about the Luigi's Mansion series. I've been a fan ever since my introduction with Dark Moon on the 3DS. I finally got the chance to play the original when the handheld remake came out last year, but even before then, thanks to countless online walkthroughs and trivia sites, I was hook-line-sinker for anything even remotely related to it.
- It looks at me every day. My Game Boy. Oh, boy. If it only knew how I felt about shitty games, but it can never know. I made a choice to play these games. A life it's forced to be a part of. Who am I? I’m the guy given a game to play. And I’m The Sessa on Vocal; I too, have a game to review.
- My life with Halo
- So I recently replayed WarCraft 3 just for kicks, and damn, the campaign is excellent. Especially the first Human campaign, The Scourge of Lordaeron. This is the story of Arthas' fall from grace.
- So I have always been a horse lover, and I have always had at least one horse in my pasture. But in my free time I'm also an avid gamer. So horse games are a huge must have in my collection. So here are my top 10 favorites to play on my PM.
- Around a year ago, Playstation 4 owners were blessed with the wonders of Marvel's Spider-Man. The game was hugely anticipated by fans and was met with great acclaim when it was released. Insomniac's creation finally allowed gamers to experience the world from the wall-crawler's perspective. One year later, the game still has a lasting appeal.
- A legendary gamer party requires meticulous planning around technology, hardware and grub. Everything must appeal to the gamer’s raw instincts, with classic combinations such as Cheetos and Mountain Dew & Red Bull and Chicken Wings present at the party.
- Vandal Hearts was released to the Playstation by Konami in 1996. It was later released to the Sega Saturn as well.
- I have been gaming for as long as I can remember. In recent years, I have become more of a gamer especially because it allows for time to be spent with close friends while playing something we all like. It has become a stress reliever and as I tell my wife, my happy place. There are some cons associated with it such as faulty or cheap equipment. This is what led me to purchasing the Energizer rechargeable batteries that I adore.
- By now we all should have beat the game's main story. If you haven't yet, please stop reading and come back to this later. There might be potential spoilers ahead.
- Over the course of the last 20 years, video games have grown to be one of the most profitable industries in modern times. Whether it's running down old ladies in your car or saving earth from a galactic invasion, video games provide players an outlet to do things they wouldn't be able to do in real life. The same holds true for sports fans, eager to experience the life of a pro athlete playing their favorite sport. Representing both the NFL and NBA, Madden and 2K have become two of the biggest franchises in sports gaming. And although Madden may have enjoyed a decades worth of a head start, both titles remain equally dominant to this day. One particular game mode that keeps fans coming back each year is the "My Player" mode offered in each series. Each side approaches that portion of their games in their own unique way. Positives and negatives can be drawn from either side. However, one side shows far more dedication and creative effort in their final product and that's what we will be looking into.
- Prince Oberyn Martell is a younger son of the Martell family. While the seat of his family's power is in Sunspear, Oberyn has ranged far and wide in his pursuit of women and battle. When his sister Elia was murdered along with her children during the purge of the Targaryns that followed King Robert's rise to the Iron Throne, Oberyn set his sights on vengeance. A skilled warrior whose name and reputation are both known and feared throughout the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, he has a difficult legacy to live up to for players who want to do him justice. This guide will help you recreate the Red Viper for your Pathfinder campaign, and provide a framework for all the abilities you need.
- Brienne of Tarth is one of the most memorable characters in A Song of Ice and Fire, as well as in the Game of Thrones television show. A huge, homely woman, Brienne is strong and skilled, deadly in combat and relentless in pursuit of her goals. For Pathfinder RPG players who want to try and capture the spirit of the Maid of Tarth, this guide should help you get a handle on her.
- Khal Drogo is one of the most feared men in the Eastern lands of the Song of Ice and Fire series. A powerful warrior, and the leader of one of the greatest bands in the Dothraki nation, he was wed to the ousted queen Daenerys Targaryen. The goal was to invade Westeros with a barbarian horde, but great warriors rarely live to old age on the sea of grass. For those who haven't had enough Drogo, though, his brutal skill and sheer power can easily be translated into the Pathfinder roleplaying game. While every player may have his or her own interpretation, here's a basic guide to get you started.
- I read a post on social media which proclaimed the 16-Bit era of gaming was the best. This statement caused a lot of debate. As someone who has been an avid gamer for the past 25 years, having even worked in a video-game store, I completely agree with that statement.
- I haven't bothered that much with retro games in the last few months. Mainly because I'm obsessed with Metal Gear Solid V and the online mode that they offer to fans. That was about to change when I attended "Arcade Club" in Leeds and sampled the excellent Turtles in Time.
- When it comes to what was the best system of all time, it usually comes down to 2. There is the Super Nintendo and the Playstation 2 (though a lot of people would argue n64 should be on the list). Both are great systems that deserve the title but we are here to pick one. I will give my vote at the end but let me know what you think. And for your vote you cannot include PS 1 games on the backwards compatible PS 2. It has to be based solely on Playstation 2 titles (but don't worry there are a lot of them).
- Respawn Entertainment truly took the world aback with the release of Apex Legends in February 2019. Since then, the game grew in popularity, and surpassed its competitors who had been in the market for longer at the time Apex Legends became widely known.
- Every year, the age old debate rears its ugly head: Which gaming system is better, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One? While the argument is fun to have, there's a pretty simple answer: Xbox One is unequivocally the better of the two systems.
- This gaming brand has made its fair share of mistakes. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’ll be counting down the "Top 10 Biggest Xbox Fails."
