Actual Sunlight – An Honest Look at a Dishonest Mind

I jumped into this one planning to do a review of Will O’Neill’s Actual Sunlight. However, almost immediately after starting it up, I realized that it wasn’t going to be a typical experience. As I played through the story, mostly as an observer simply seeing the pageant take place in front of me, it became more and more apparent that a simple review wouldn’t come of this. I can’t, in good faith, take my feelings or observations about Actual Sunlight and distill [...]

Missing the Boat – 5 Video Games Where You Really Needed to Be There

One of the most galvanizing things about being part of the video game community is when a game comes out that everybody is playing. Whether you are following along on Twitch, reading updates on Twitter, or playing on multiplayer servers, there is a palatable sense of togetherness that happens as a large cross-section dives into a new title at once. It happens regularly, but with a wide range of games; some that come to mind are Dark Souls, BioShock Infinite, [...]

Discussing Violence Against Genders in Metal Gear Solid

[Note: This article contains minor spoilers for the ending of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.] With last month’s release of Ground Zeroes and the red band trailer for The Phantom Pain, the Metal Gear Solid series has received a lot of flak for its objectification of women. This is a result of the gruesome scene we see at the end of Ground Zeroes where Paz has her stomach cut open to remove a bomb, and the implied rape she [...]

 

Games You’re Looking Forward to This Year? – Twinfinite Discusses

Hey there! We’re back with another Twinfinite Discusses with special guest Muaz! He’s filling in for Austin and Alex these couple of weeks as they ran off to get married and go on their honeymoon, but we weren’t invited. I know, it’s a very confusing story that almost sounds like a lie (they’ll be back in a couple of weeks). This Twinfinite Discusses, we tackled the questions you sent in. Such topics as which games we’re looking forward to this [...]

 

Yami’s Sporadic PAX East Diary – Gaming Happens

If you’ve never watched one of my sporadic diaries at conventions, you’ll be really confused with this. Even though I wasn’t at PAX East this year, I decided that my diary must live on. Because I’ve heard so many great things about them, and I live off of compliments. So, I’m sorry for missing Gaming Happens last Friday, but here’s what I was up to the whole weekend.

 

PAX East – Showfloor Dance-Off, Who Won?

As fun as PAX East has been, it can get a little stressful trying to hit every booth and cover as many games as possible. Other than maybe getting an unexpected break where we can grab breakfast at 3pm, nothing gives us more of a chance to de-stress during the convention than filming ourselves goofing around on the showfloor. Here’s the latest in our bi-annual PAX showfloor dancethrough. If you see people randomly busting out dance moves at future PAXs, [...]

 

PAX East – What Does PAX Mean To You?

PAX is infamous for being absolutely, unimaginably huge. People travel from around the globe just to have a chance to be a member of the tens of thousands of people in attendance every year. But why? What makes PAX so special that people would put so much effort into showing up? I took to the show floor on the busiest day of PAX to ask attendees just what PAX means to them personally and why they’ve grown to love one [...]
