Guy Makes A Genius Gamertag – Xbox Sign Out

Ahhhh, I remember the days when people would make clever usernames on Socom to get a giggle when people called out to them. This guy takes it to the next level with “Xbox Sign Out” for Call of Duty: Ghosts on the Xbox One. Some of these reactions are really golden as they scramble to get the Kinect to not sign them out.

Check out These Holiday Cards from the Game Industry!

Ahhhh, Christmas (or “the holidays,” whatever, you know, I say Christmas, sue me) time… I love it so much. Of course I do, I’m the resident ball of sunshine and puppy-esque enthusiasm. I love the lights, the family and friends, but most of all: the presents! And I thought it was so sweet to see a bunch of little holiday cards from different publishers, developers, and PR in my inbox this month, so I wanted to spread the cheer and [...]

Greetings wonderful Twinfiknights! Like a lot of the staff, my summer vacation has officially started and hot damn am I pumped.

I’m going to enjoy using my new-found freedom to go back and tackle my insane backlog and taking a second look at games I had fun with but haven’t touched in a while. One [...]

[Community] Twinfinite Talks: What Do You Look For in Video Game Criticism?

Yesterday morning I was wrapped in a fairly interesting discussion around whether or not “game literacy” was required to properly critique video games. On the one hand, an understanding in the technical aspects of video games can go a long way. On the other hand, there can also be a more reactionary style of criticism not bogged down by technical jargon. While this is a matter of debate in and of itself, it did establish one thing: Everyone looks for [...]

[Featurama] Five Signs you Might be a “Hardcore” gamer

The gaming community is no stranger to labeling and stereotyping. There is a label heard so much within the community and industry that it deserves discussion- “hardcore” gamers, or conversely, “casuals”. The use of this word can get to the point where it can become a cause for a kind of elitism amongst gamers, whether it is a “hardcore” PC gamer turning up his nose at “console kiddies”, or mobile games being shunned for being too “casual”. Gaming journalists and [...]
