The Last of Us: Remastered story scenes that we never saw, in photos

by Tyler Colpon July 30, 2014
One of the most interesting things we get from The Last of Us: Remastered’s excellent photo mode are shots that depict events that did not happen in the game. A lot of the below photos are deaths of main character Joel (people like to kill him apparently!) and others that could contain minor spoilers, so you’ve been […]

Destiny beta: was the hype worth it?

by Tyler Colpon July 29, 2014
The Destiny beta is over. You’ve had time to think about it. Was it worth it? The Destiny beta suffered from the same problem many betas do. Whenever a beta for a popular game has arrived, marketing, social media, and the press can’t stop talking about it. There’s code giveaways, impressions, livestreams, and leaks. It […]

The Last of Us: Remastered is a cash grab, and why nobody believes it

by Tyler Colpon July 22, 2014
Despite it’s $50 price tag, the fact that a team at Naughty Dog spent time on it rather than something else, and the attention Sony is giving a game that’s already available, The Last of Us: Remastered is not getting called out as a shameless cash grab. The video game industry is product-based, which means […]

The Last of Us 2 with an open world, and our other ideas

by Tyler Colpon July 21, 2014
It’s hard to type something like “The Last of Us 2”. If there ever were a popular blockbuster video game sequel that that I didn’t actively want, it would be another Naughty Dog post-apocalyptic game. But it’s likely happening whether I like it or not. I trust Naughty Dog to think about what a sequel […]

What male video game characters could be female?

by Tyler Colpon July 15, 2014
There was a lot of support for the news of the Thor Marvel comic series switching to a female lead. Earlier this month, we saw the new look for Batgirl, which got a similar response. And True Detective fans know that next season will star two female leads. My save file name for Divinity: Original […]

Play games you don’t like this October

by Tyler Colpon July 14, 2014
There’s a lot of games coming out in October. The genres range from strategy to sports to action to horror. All of them come out within a single month. You should take advantage of all the options in front of you and play a game you don’t like, or think you don’t like. I know […]


Don’t let Microsoft get away with this again

by Tyler Colpon July 9, 2014
Let’s start with the facts. Microsoft said in July 2013 that game developers would be able to use retail Xbox One consoles, the ones you can go out and buy today, as developer kits. Typically, hardware companies like Microsoft and Sony will send development kits, dev kits for short, to game makers. They use these […]

What Sniper Elite has that other games don’t

by Tyler Colpon July 8, 2014
I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life. Few of them have been as regrettable as not playing a Sniper Elite game before last weekend. I’m not sure why or how I skipped out on Rebellion’s series of games about shooting Nazis and Soviet enemies–from far away of course–with a high-powered rifle. And, as […]

The PS4 and Xbox One will never have this must-play indie game

by Tyler Colpon July 4, 2014
In these summer months, the lead up to the explosion of games in October, there’s not a lot of new games to play, especially on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4. If you’ve got a PC, the Steam sale helps, but it doesn’t solve the problem. No, when you need new games these days, you […]

Sony can charge whatever it wants for PlayStation Now

by Tyler Colpon June 25, 2014
Sony’s online game streaming service PlayStation Now is in closed beta (the open beta is coming July 31) and the price to rent games isn’t going over so well with PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 owners. Games range from $3 to $5 for four hours of play time, $6 to $8 for a week, and […]

Stop whining about the price of The Last of Us: Remastered

by Tyler Colpon June 24, 2014
Sony is being pretty generous when it comes to the price of The Last of Us: Remastered for PlayStation 4. For $50, you get one of the most important games in the last decade and all of the biggest downloadable content for it too, including the superb Left Behind story. Let’s break it down. The […]
