Games We Missed Out On In 2013

We’re all human here at Twinfinite, regardless of what you may or may not have heard. There are only so many hours in the day that we can set aside for games before adult responsibilities (blegh) have to be taken care of. This can lead to us missing a few games here and there. It’s not due to any hatred towards the game, but a lack of time, money, or hardware. I asked around the office for what my amazing [...]

Why “Game of the Year” is Bullshit

It’s that “Game of the Year” time again, and you know what that means: games that were generally well-received months ago will now be scrutinized within an inch of their virtual lives and found lacking. It happens every year, and this is why GotY is bullshit. I remember in 2011 when Skyrim, which had largely favorable reviews at release in November, was a terrible game come late December. Don’t get me wrong, Skyrim is not flawless, nor was it my [...]

Twinfinite’s Holiday Gift Guide for the PS3 Gamer

Note from Writer Topher: The year 2013 has been a fabulous one for the PlayStation 3. There have been plenty of stellar games this year with my personal game of the year, NaughtyDog’s The Last of Us, only available on PlayStation 3. Even though the PS4 has launched, Sony is by no means abandoning the PS3, though. The system still has plenty of life in 2014 and even stretching to 2015. If you’re in the market for an affordable console with a great library, then [...]

Twinfinite’s Holiday Gift Guide for the Gamer on the Go

Note from Editor Yami: When you simply can’t stay home anymore (and are probably dragged out), mobile gaming will be your best friend. This Holiday Gift Guide section is dedicated to those gamers on the go that can’t get enough of all the pixels. My system of choice is the 3DS, but the Vita has had quite a few heavy hitters. And you can’t forget iOS devices as strong competitors in the portable gaming market! Whichever one you’re shopping for, Twinfinite has [...]

 

The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Video Review – Old Dog, New Tricks

Remember 2003? Neither do I. There is, however, one shining nugget of a memory from those days of old. That memory is The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker. I remember sailing the vast open seas for hours upon hours and exploring every corner of the game when it came out ten years ago. But as the years went by and I grew older, I found myself having less free time to sink into games that insisted on forcing the [...]

Yami’s Sporadic TGS Diary

I don’t want to hear any lip from you. I am well aware I’m late with this sporadic diary. What’s that? It’s been like two weeks? Where has the time gone?! Oh, right, being really sick, playing GTA V, and generally trying to maintain sanity while being a full-time student and full-time boss of a start-up company. That’s right… I’m sorry, I’ll never do it again. I’m a liar, I so will, already totally behind on Gaming Happens and Positive Gamers. But I promise [...]

 

PAX13 – Yami’s Sporadic PAX Prime 2013 Twinfinite Diary

I love doing these and since you all have shown you love watching them, here I am again staring into your soul. Someone once told me my con coverage was too negative. While a majority finds it hilarious, in case anyone else that might not get my sarcasm and comedy ever sees one of these, watch the entire thing. I am eternally privileged to not be tackling this endeavor alone, but with a team of people that love to have [...]
