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. Violence is a prevalent […]

A Selfish Opinion: What I Want From Halo: Infinite

By: Nick Farinola             Now that E3 happened some two months ago, it’s time to look back on some of the announcements that had a ton of people hyped for the upcoming months of new releases. Anthem, though promising premise, now shares too many aspects with Bungie’s Destiny in both its gameplay and its aesthetic. […]

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.

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. I consider it a privilege to be able to act as an agent of inclusivity, evangelizing the stream to anyone who will listen, especially since I know that there are people out there like this GameStop employee who need to know that it exists.

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.

Bloody Intriguing: Netflix’s Castlevania, Season 1

Netflix has already renewed Castlevania for an eight episode second season, which I’ll definitely be bingeing on release day. Hopefully it won’t take an entire year, as we’ve been given barely a taste of things to come. What we have is bloody intriguing though, so I recommend you check it out. It won’t take too long and it’s a great time while it lasts.

The Longest Dark Ever

Written by Dyllan Rodrigues-Miller // Edited by Drew Beyer // Header Image courtesy of Hinterland Games A few months ago, my boyfriend and I were sitting on our couch, browsing through various games available on his Xbox One. We were discussing our preferences, weighing our options, and generally coming up empty… until we stumbled across something intriguing. It was titled […]
