Dare to Share – How Have Video Games Changed Your Life?

Most gamers would agree that games are misrepresented in mainstream media on a fairly regular basis. Frequently enough, we hear claims that video games are breeding violent killers, that they are rotting the brains of youth, and that they are taking away time that can be better spent with family. Video games are not perfect, but they are certainly not this evil form of media that much press would have you believe. Thankfully, not every media outlet bashes games, but [...]

 

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 [...]

New Games Coming from Cartoon Network Later This Year, Including Adventure Time

Cartoon Network is partnering with Little Orbit to bring two new games later this year. One is an Adventure Time game, which I have no opinion for because I never got into the show, but here’s hoping it’s better than the last one. Though Little Orbit’s past lineup of games doesn’t sound very promising. However, the second game did manage to pique my interest. It’s described as, “a multi-property game that will combine characters from Cartoon Network’s popular original series.” [...]

 

Pigs Can Play Video Games, Now I’m Hungry

This is an interesting video to get in my inbox… It’s an advertisement for veganism that points out that since pigs can play video games, we shouldn’t eat them. The complete opposite effect is happening, as I just want to eat them more now. How dare pigs have the ability to beat me? What if I’m in a very intense Hearthstone battle, and I lose to a PIG?! No way, I say we eat them all. This is the beginning [...]

Feels Like the First Time – A Look at Video Game Replayability

I’ve been toiling around at the bottom of a particular gaming rabbit hole recently. Thanks to some of my favorite games of generations past, Ikaruga, Final Fantasy VII, and Resident Evil 4 being re-released on Steam, my time has been largely spent revisiting these classics. As it happens, I’m also eyeballing some of my more recent favorites such as Dark Souls, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Far Cry 2 as possible replay options if/when I get the time. This march [...]

5 Ways to Support Video Games in Freedom to Read Week

This week marks Freedom to Read Week across Canada. For those of you in the United States, your event, called Banned Books Week isn’t until September, but the information below can hopefully give you a head start on affecting positive change. As a Librarian, this is obviously an important event for me, but my interest extends to the realm of video games as well. Censorship is something that pervades any kind of art form or entertainment industry. Where there are [...]

Video Games Going Postal – USPS May Use Games For Future Stamps

One surefire way of knowing you’ve made in in mainstream society is when you’ve made it onto a postage stamp. Traditionally, it’s been reserved for only people from the country of the stamp, and of them only the dead ones would apply. Well, according to the Washington Post, the United States Postal Service is considering using video game imagery for future stamps. This article shows the complete list of possibilities that they’re mulling over for the next few years. Granted, [...]

 

What’s Your Favorite Thing About Gaming? – Twinfinite Discusses

I think by this episode of Twinfinite Discusses, it starts to become obvious that we’re all about to pass out from exhaustion. This might have been around hour 6 of filming. We’re seeing stars, people. Anyway, in this Twinfinite Discusses we talk about our favorite part of gaming, how the JRPG genre can be revived on consoles, and the future of MMOs! See you next week for another Twinfinite Discusses where we’ll still be wearing the same damn clothes.

Best of My Love – Twinfinite Staff’s Valentine Crushes

Look around on the Internet today (actually don’t), and it’s easy to see that a lot of people are pretty cynical about Valentine’s Day. Yes, it may be a big commercialized non-holiday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t just eat some candy and have fun. Around the Twinfinite office, for example, we have a special ritual that we do; I give our writers an assignment to write about, and they do it so I don’t get mad at them. Doesn’t [...]

 

Video Games Don’t Get No Respect? Too Many Sequels? – Twinfinite Discusses

Look at you, in your different outfit. Us? Oh, we’re just here, filming Twinfinite Discusses in the same clothes for the fourth week in a row. I know, disgusting. Well here’s an episode that deals with why video games don’t get much respect from older people, whether there are way too many sequels in the industry, and which video games have overstayed their welcome. Twinfinite Discusses is the only weekly web series on Twinfinite where you get to tell us [...]
