In Defence of the Silent Protagonist

Silent heroes are a video game staple, from the days when there wasn’t really much of a choice to the modern days where their use is deliberate. Some silent heroes make sense while others don’t, and I’ll go through a few of them in this piece, as well as explain why the Silent Hero is such a good thing, why […]

The word Tolerance…and Respect

If there’s a post that’ll cost me my low amount of readers, this is it! But what the hell, I live to write! I had a random thought this morning (an especially dangerous event): Why do we use the word tolerant and tolerance when used with different lifestyles? Why not acceptance? Tolerance by definition means the ability to live with […]

Extremis-t: My thoughts on Iron Man 3 (spoilers)

WARNING: Spoilers & Intelligent arguments, so if those aren’t exactly your cup of tea, now’s the time to jump ship! I liked Iron Man 3, I thoroughly enjoyed it. That being said, I have some issues with it. Let me explain. When I first read that the plot involved The Mandarin and Extremis, I was stoked. I’m a hard-core Iron […]

Hardcore…

A week or so ago while working on the Dark Souls reviews I was reading up on sources, finding images and looking at videos. I found that “Hardcore game” was a common description for it and it got me thinking. Nowadays games aren’t only classified in genres or length or even good or bad, but also casual and hardcore, and gamers […]

Happy New Year!!

Hello all, just here to wish you all an absolutely fantastic 2013. As for me, 2012 was a very good year. Sure, it had its disappointments, its bad moments, I got angry, sad, I raged, I was frustrated, etc. But there was also quite a lot of joy, of accomplishment, of new experiences and a great deal of learning, which […]

D3 – Diablo Disappointment Discussion

WARNING – SPOILERS AHEAD! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Diablo 3, a lot’s been said about it and now’s my turn. Let’s get a few things out of the way: No, it’s not Diablo 2, it’s not that game with a better engine and it was never meant to be. The game was never going to fulfill the fanbase’s expectations, mostly […]

A Visual Matter

As of 6am today, all of Venezuela, my country, is “celebrating” its Presidential Elections…just wanted to say that. And now for something completely different! Games, specifically, Video Games. Being a visual media, we have to accept that Visuals, the graphics are important, the question is, just how much? I think that like with many things, it depends on the case […]

The nature of a Classic

This week I’ve been pondering the question: What makes a game “a classic”? Classics are, by definition, those that best represent their genre, style, etc. But how is it that of two games one is a classic and the other isn’t? When both do the same things? You could say the one that releases first is the classic, but that’s […]

Politics – Back in the day…

I will say this only once. I HATE POLITICS. It didn’t used to be like that. Once upon a time, politics, politicians, governments and such didn’t even cross my mind, the only time it did was when there was an election coming. Now, politics are part of our everyday lives, and we listen to politicians argue and bicker at least […]

Relationship BS

This won’t be a popular topic, and won’t endear me to some people, but the truth (or at least my truth) must be said. This is about relationships, most specifically, about the protocols and hurdles we all put in front of us to make something as simple as Person A + Person B incredibly complicated. By “WE”, I mean the […]
