A Video Retrospective of the Red Faction Franchise

Red Faction is one of most paradoxically charming franchises in gaming history. It's got two games, the first and the third, that are pretty good: low budget, sure, but ambitious and likable. And then it's got two games that are practically famous for mediocre design. This video goes through all four games, looking at… » 1/29/15 5:11pm Thursday 5:11pm

Better Late Than Never: Me Playing Mass Effect 3 for the First Time

There's a tower to the left, that upon entering I was shocked to… » 1/29/15 11:56am Thursday 11:56am

Final Fantasy 3. Not 6, Actually 3!

No Respect: An Ode to Under-Loved Enemies

I'm replaying through a gamut of Metroid titles right now, most recently Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. If you haven't played it, it's a fantastic game by and Retro Studios really pulled all the stops with that trilogy. You need to play it and now that it's on the Wii U Virtual Console you have no reason not to. Anyways,… » 1/29/15 9:15am Thursday 9:15am
