A Feature: Featuring all our Features

On this very special episode of Caffeine Corner, I go over a few of this week’s Twinfinite features and give you my own take on them. With the launch of the new console generation officially behind us, I go over whether or not next-gen was really worth it, and what games I’m looking forward to in 2014. Check out the video for details, and read up on all of this week’s features here.

Holiday Gaming Plans! – Caffeine Corner

The holidays are finally here, and with them, the time to get caught up on any of this year’s releases that you might’ve missed! Mona and I plan on trying to tackle a PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 backlog, including games on 3DS and Vita. Thankfully, there’s no PS4 backlog (yet. YET.), but I plan on putting in a bunch of hours into that, as well. Check out the video for full disclosure and leave your holiday gaming plans in the comments!

Call of Duty: Ghosts LTTP PS4 Review

Call of Duty: Ghosts on the Playstation 4 is absolute eye candy, with all the next-gen flair and awesome texture rendering one would expect. Unfortunately, there isn’t too much going on under the hood, gameplay-wise. Ghosts is fun, but not as inventive and fresh as it could have been. Much of what one would expect of a Call of Duty game is there, with a plethora of fast-paced multiplayer modes, both competitive and cooperative. There’s the usual free-for-all and team deathmatch, as [...]

Are “Art Games” Really Art?

On this week’s episode of Twinfinite Talks (which you can start expecting to see every Thursday), I gathered up all of your questions from Twitter and YouTube and answered them all in a video for your personal entertainment. I gave you my thoughts on whether or not we should even have a category called “art games” and why all games are an art form as they are anyways. I also do my best Pokemon impression, laugh at Sonic games, and tell [...]

 

The Problem with Gamer Girls, and Why No One Should Ever Use That Phrase

In this week’s super spooky special edition of Caffeine Corner, Mona and Maie dare to address the most terrifying topic of all: the problem with the phrase “gamer girl.” Okay, so admittedly, it isn’t really relevant to Halloween, but there’s one hell of a killer spooky intro. Mona and Maie go over what exactly makes a “gamer girl,” and how that concept affects the way women in gaming are perceived. We also go into how men tend to treat a [...]

 

What is it with Pokémon?

Mona and I just don’t get Pokémon. Don’t get us wrong, we were huge fans back in the “original 151″ heyday, but as we got older, some of its charm wore off for us. This doesn’t seem to be the case for most of our friends and, well, seemingly anyone else. The essential formula for the game hasn’t changed much, if at all, over the years, but there doesn’t appear to be any “fatigue” on the part of the players. [...]
