Juvenile and Proud

Yes, this game is loud, crude, childish, and stupid. But it it knows what it wants to be and nails it. And that's admirable.

 

Silent Hill Origins

Here is a long look at a game that tries to live up to a big legacy and fails hilariously.

 

Ludonarrative Dissonance

What is this silly word, why did some people get so irritated by it, and why did it fall out of use?

 

The Best of 2015

My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2015.

 

Tenpenny Tower

Bethesda felt the need to jam a morality system into Fallout 3, and they blew it. Good and evil make no sense and the moral compass points sideways.

 

Spoiler Warning:
Hitman:Absolution

This game needs to be on more 'worst of' lists. Watch our let's play to see how much stupid you can pack into one game.

 

Starcraft 2: Rush Analysis

I write a program to simulate different strategies in Starcraft 2, to see how they compare.

Diablo III Retrospective

We were so upset by the server problems and real money auction that we overlooked just how terrible everything else is.

 

Project Octant

A programming project where I set out to make a Minecraft-style world so I can experiment with Octree data.

 

Spoiler Warning:
Alan Wake

This game was a critical darling before release, so what happened that prevented it from resonating with audiences?

 

Why I Hated Resident Evil 4

Ever wonder how seemingly sane people can hate popular games? It can happen!
