RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)

RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

Nintendo Confirms New Console For E3

Comment by usaglory.

Sounds like another gimmick-driven piece of hardware is heading our way. This sort of stuff has a limited life cycle and considering this console is gonna be stuck in between "generations" I can't but smell another Dreamcast coming. Somehow, I don't see "casual" gamers that adopted the Wii and made it a success years ago and whose consoles are now gathering dust, going for this again. Most likely they've since, moved on to stupider fads, it's what they do. I hope I'm wrong.

Portal 2 Review

Comment by Diomedes.

Portal 2: (NO SPOILERS)
- too short
- the older style puzzle chambers are ugly 
- the goo puzzles are more tedious than challenging
- Wheatley's voice and personality is exhausting - though that may just be me. 
- Wheatley's motivations are unclear from start to finish, foreshadowing everything while explaining nothing
- the historical insights we get mid-game are superficial and left me unsatisfied
- the last Portal the player shoots is just silly 

SUMMARY: Portal 2 is has more of Portal 1's fabulous gameplay but is weakened by being forced into a conventional narrative structure. I'd have preferred fifteen hours of puzzles and robotic taunting to these five hours of puzzles with some underdeveloped narrative, occasionally lazy travelling, and aesthetically boring sections taped over it.

Redbox Carrying Video Games Nationwide In June

Comment by MrrClean.

I can't help but think that the whole rental movie/game/tv show industry is close to dead. You got Netflix, plus countless other legal and illegal websites for watching everthing you can think of off the Interweb, plus games you can get off the net... Plus, its a f*cking vending machine. What kind of selection could they have in there? Unless you like the total garbage that makes up mainstream entertainment these days, you'll probably have to look elsewhere for something worth watching.

The name? Likely because Epona is the Gallo-Roman protector of horses.

User Blog: The Graphical Apex

Written by Somaroth.

I guess what I am saying is that graphics are not what makes the game for me; gameplay and story are what is most important. Good graphics are a great thing, and I would certainly like all games to look their best, but video games as a whole have reached a level where a game cannot (or at least should not) be praised or judged solely by their graphical capability, but on the things those impressive visuals are designed to make us feel a part of.
