Crysis 2

Crysis 2 has basically the same plot as Half-Life 2. So why is one a classic and the other simply obnoxious and tiresome?

 

Steam Summer Blues

This mess of dross, confusion, and terrible UI design is the storefront the big publishers couldn't beat? Amazing.

 

Spoiler Warning:
The Last of Us

A beautiful, masterful, heart-wrenching bit of cinema mixed with a completely rote and uninspired set of mechanics.

 

Programming Language for Games

Game developer Jon Blow is making a programming language just for games. Why is he doing this, and what will it mean for game development?

 

Zenimax vs. Facebook

This series explores the troubled history of VR and the strange lawsuit between Zenimax publishing and Facebook.

 

Good Robot Dev Blog

An ongoing series where I work on making a 2D action game from scratch.

 

How to Forum

Dear people of the internet: Please stop doing these horrible idiotic things when you talk to each other.

 

Denuvo and the "Death" of Piracy

So what happens when a SOFTWARE engineer tries to review hardware? This. This happens.

 

Spoiler Warning:
Dishonored

Part Thief, part Assassins Creed, part BioWare-style RPG. A game at once unique and yet very familiar. We're actually pretty divided on how it turned out.

 

Crash Dot Com

Back in 1999, I rode the dot-com bubble. Got rich. Worked hard. Went crazy. Turned poor. It was fun.

 

Spoiler Warning:
Fallout 4

Is Fallout 4 the greatest videogame ever made? No. No it is not.
