A Bunch of Good Boys: mid90’s (2018) Review

Everyone I know who’s seen mid90’s says the same thing about it. “I liked it, it was good,” goes the common refrain, and while nobody I’ve talked to thinks it’s terrible, none of us call it great either.

Terminator, Nightmare on Elm Street, Back to the Future, and so many other movies from this era still hold cultural value to this day. Some are even […]

Opinion: A Discussion on Video Game Violence

By: Nick Farinola There’s nothing quite like assassinating your targets with a hidden blade in the historically accurate settings of the Assassin’s Creed games, severing the limbs of Dead Space’s frightening necromorphs on the USG Ishimura spaceship, or mutilating space Nazis with combat axes and a weapon that fires self-detonating explosives in the Wolfenstein reboot series.

Why Infliction Might be the P.T. We Never Got

By: Nick Farinola   To say that I have a love-hate relationship with horror games would be an understatement. The horror genre in movies is a completely different story. I’m usually in the theater opening night with front row seats for every horror movie, whether it’d come out of Hollywood or some low-key indie director. I honestly can’t get enough […]

A Random Encounter

I share this anecdote as a public thank you letter to Conri, the GM and designer of the Stellar Age ablegame, and the rest of the Devil’s Luck Crew for enabling me to have this heartwarming interaction with a complete stranger.

God of War PS4: More than Gore

God of War IV is the latest example of a welcome trend in the modern game industry, where an established gameplay model is used as a vehicle to tell a moving, emotional story. It works for Spec Ops: The Line (third person shooter), Horizon Zero Dawn (open world action/adventure), and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (hack’n’slash action) and it certainly works here.
