Dark Souls 2 – Journal of The Brave Undead #1

I wanted to do something like this with my adventure in the first Dark Souls, but I was already in NG++ by the time I had the idea. I wanted the material to be fresh and real, and I had already forgotten most of my incidents and mishaps of my first playthrough. I’m very early in my playthrough of Dark Souls 2, and I want to give this a shot. What this series will be, is a playthrough of Dark...[Read More]

Playing Assassin’s Creed in a Web Browser

One of the things I have vowed to do recently is to take a closer look at gaming in the browser. I gave it a whirl last year when I bought a couple of Chrome devices, but quickly soured on the concept. I’d had a few other flirtations with browser-based gaming outside of my Chrome experiences.

Killer Instinct – A Retrospective on an Amazingly Poor Business Model [Video]

I did not buy an XBox One until the first week of this past March. Roughly four months after the launch of the console. Many of the discussions I’ve been in recently have involved commentary on this notion of actively participating in a console’s history as it happens or unfolds. Most of my life, I have been unconcerned about gaming in the now, in most instances. I typically engage in ...[Read More]

No One Lives Forever Being Resurrected?

A fledgling video game studio recently filed trademarks for No One Lives Forever, The Operative, Contract J.A.C.K., and A Spy in H.A.R.M.’s Way. For those who are familiar with the matter, most of these are alternate names that referenced Monolith’s two installments of the Cate Archer franchise. Fondly referred to as NoLF, No One Lives Forever followed the adventures of a cat burglar t...[Read More]
