Mojang, please add ships to Minecraft!

Posted by & filed under , .

Minecraft is one of the best games I’ve ever played, hands-down.  But however great this game may be, it still has a few faults, and the game’s lackluster seafaring is, in my opinion anyway, the biggest of them. Minecraft boats are probably the saddest vehicles in all of gaming, or really close to it.  They’re […]

Review: FIFA 13 (4.7/ 10)

Posted by & filed under , .

Okay, I know what you’re thinking: “Why are you guys reviewing FIFA 13 instead of FIFA 14?  FIFA 13 is outdated now!”  That’s true, it is.  But Albert Einstein famously defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”  And that pretty much sums up not only why we […]

Review: Grand Theft Auto V (PS3/ 360) (Perfect 10)

Posted by & filed under , .

It’s official.  After GTA V has taken home a staggering seven world records, it has now earned something so prestigious that even the acclaimed team at Rockstar will find themselves blushing:  Grand Theft Auto V is officially the first game ever to take home a perfect 10 out of 10 score from Obscure Republic. Reading […]

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Review

Posted by & filed under , .

It’s that time of year, yet another Final Fantasy is released. So much for ‘final’, eh? Well this reviewer can hardly complain, I’m a Final Fantasy slut, I would say ‘whore’, but somebody once told me whores get paid to be what they are. However, you could say the series has not been what it […]

Fallout 4: a wishlist

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

Fallout 4 is currently under development at Bethesda, but details regarding the next installment in the famed post-apocalyptic roleplaying game have been scarce. Still, despite the lack of information about the game, I do know one thing about it beyond any shadow of doubt: Bethesda will most likely screw it up. I’ve never really been much of […]

Final Fantasy XI Review 2013

Posted by & filed under , .

The first question that probably comes to mind is, “why the hell would you review a decade old game? What are you, some kind of nostalgia reviewer?” The answer to that question takes me back to the year 1823, I was a fighter pilot in Vietnam and the Nazis had managed to finally ward off […]

The Gamer’s Code of Chivalry: An Introduction

Posted by & filed under , , .

How I yearn for the golden days of multiplayer gaming.  You and a couple of friends, sitting on the edge of someone’s bed or on the floor, staring into some tiny television set while you waited patiently for your turn to come up, joking and laughing and eating pizza together.  Sure, there were the occasional […]

How many of the ten worst genocidal leaders played video games?

Posted by & filed under , , , , , , .

In the past thirty years, a wide array of individuals and organizations have tried pinning all of the world’s violence on video games, claiming that by simply playing violent games, a person is somehow more likely to turn into a heartless psychopath hellbent on killing everyone and everything they see.  Of course, we all know […]

A senator says video games cause violence… sigh

Posted by & filed under .

I remember it like it was yesterday.  The year was 1993 — I was thirteen years old — and I was celebrating either my birthday or Christmas (they’re pretty close together).  My parents gave me a Super Nintendo game that at the time was shocking and exciting, but I mainly remember it because each time […]

Game Review: Battlefield 3 (PC) (9.2/ 10)

Posted by & filed under , , .

You might have looked at the title of this article, and thought to yourself “why would they review a game that’s been out for a year already?”  The answer is pretty simple:  a year later, I’m still playing Battlefield 3, and I consider it to be one of the greatest FPS titles I’ve ever had […]

Posted by & filed under , , .

If you pay any attention to game industry media, chances are you’ve heard of The War Z already, and your impression of the game is probably pretty terrible.  As the most controversial game release of 2012, The War Z picked up a pretty nasty reputation right out of the gate, and yes, we’re going to […]

Game Review: Anno 2070 (5.8/ 10)

Posted by & filed under , .

I’m usually a big fan of games that break through the boundaries of convention and attempt to deliver something new.  To this end, Anno 2070 looked to be quite the promising title, with its fresh, sci-fi vibe and setting, and what appeared to be some unique gameplay dynamics, from the outside looking in, anyway.  The […]
