Nintendo Holiday Showcase Event 2012

Thursday, October 25, 2012 1 Comment

Nintendo is not the little kid it used to be. For years we’ve seen a plumber traverse mushroom-related worlds to save a princess (who was always in another castle) stomping on mushroom-related bad guys and turtles along the way. We’ve seen an adorable pink ball fill up with air and float across a vibrantly colored […]

F.E.A.R. 3

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 No Comments

There may have been elements of horror in F.E.A.R. 3, but overall it just felt like a more ominous Call of Duty. Sure there were some spooks, but those moments were few and far between, and the rest (or majority) of the game was just your standard first-person shooter. Not to say that it isn’t […]

Microsoft kicked off this its E3 press conference for this year with a bang. Actually, with a glug. The sights and sounds of underwater action kicking from the live demo of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which included scuba action gameplay, underwater infiltration and even a whole motor dinghy chase scene.  The show rolled […]

In this week’s video, Nathan explains his growing distaste for sequels and the same old first-person and third-person shooters. It’s a simple question with a somewhat simple answer, and an annoyingly complicated solution. But will it actually happen? Click the link to watch!

LEGO Stop Motion CoD: Black Ops Spoof a Poignant Analysis on Shooter Multiplayer

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 No Comments

Yesterday, thanks to a tweet from @WindowsGamer, I got to see a particularly cool YouTube video by a user called Keshen8. The video is stop motion animated spoof of the multiplayer in Call of Duty: Black Ops featuring LEGO characters (one of many LEGO-based spoofs Keshen8 has posted), and I would definitely use the word […]

Call of Duty: Black Ops

Unfortunately, all I really got was your standard fair of first-person shooters with a whole slew of bugs and annoyances. For instance, it was repeatedly difficult to distinguish between friend […]

Never have I considered any first-person shooting game (excepting Bioshock) to really be an epic. Enter the newest installment in the Call of Duty franchise, Treyarch’s Black Ops. Not only does it fall into that epic classification, it does so with unbelievable graphics, excellent game play, endless unlockables, and a revised multiplayer system that works […]

Nathan and I got the opportunity to attend our first Sony event this Tuesday, in downtown Toronto at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts (kudos for the intelligent use of its own space). Sony and a few third party publishers were showcasing their holiday season lineups, and a couple games that won’t be (don’t […]
