REVIEWS Fantasia: Music Evolved Review
Harmonix's rhythm game based on the Sorceror's Apprentice provided a fun experience of arm-wavy controlling goodness. It also made me want to play Rock Band again.

I Don't Want to, but I Have To...

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

xDUMPWEEDx: Vox Pop Winner November 2012

Posted on Thursday, December 6 @ 13:08:41 Eastern by

There was a lapse in Vox Pop entries last month, but that could be because of a glitch on our technical end or  shandog's second extra-credit blog in October (which is now been counted here). At any rate, I actually wrote my own Vox Pop about MUGEN 1.0+ to fill in the gap. But since I'm nice and reasonable or something like that, I have chosen to lose. For our community!

Despite the gap, we did have more than several entries. And what variety there was. shandog137 openly discussed the issue of sensitive video games like Homefront and Medal of Honor: Warfighter, but also the trouble of video games being able to participate in the discussion about foreign wars. Does playing a game where you can be a terrorist mean that you favor terrorism or even empathize with terrorists?

Tyrannis gave feedback on the Hawken beta, which people should check out if they like mech games and don't mind paying nothing because it's free-to-play. sliverstorm, ever the statistician, offered up his views on THQ's financial troubles with his signature charts and graphs.

I ultimately chose xDUMPWEEDx for alerting all of us to an oversight by Activision to treat its community respectfully. Many PS3 players experienced the exact same issue that he was. And while It's one thing for a company to ignore or dismiss customer claims, it's another thing to blame the community in effect for an error that clearly exists with photographic evidence. I'm glad that xDUMPWEEDx has been able to fix this problem without their help and that he was able to vent his frustration here on Game Revolution!

Runner-Up: Tyrannis
Title: Love Thy Mecha: My feedback on the Hawken beta



Excerpt: "...if you have any inclination towards the mecha genre, look to Hawken when it finally releases. It'll apparently be F2P, as well, so that's another bonus."

Excerpt:
"This is the completely biasedyet completely factualrise and fall of THQ, in the company's own words."
