The “Oscars” – Games of the Year 2016 Awards

2016 has been a bit of a funny year. There’s been a lot of surprises for everyone. But really games are the most important thing. This year I’ve changed the rules, because everything about 2016 has been unpredictable. I’m going to be allowing remasters in this list this time, as long as the remaster was the first time I played the game. How does that make you feel? Is this what justice feels like…? I also contributed to Rice Digital’s […]

The “Oscars” – Games of the Year 2015 Awards

Last year when I wrote my games of the year list I threw in some bonus awards besides the month-on-months and overall. Now, there are even more bonus awards, because if you head on over to Rice Digital me and my coworker Peter gave our picks on a variety of categories, from Most Frustrating, to Most Awe-Inspiring Moment. It’s a good read. Without going on too much, here are my normal Games of the Year awards. Just Fuck Off Already […]

Mad Max Car Combat & 10 Tips to Keep in Mind

Mad Max‘s ground combat is more than little bit inspired by the Batman: Arkham series, but the car combat is a lot more original. Vehicle based fighting can be hit and miss in games at the best of time. Even Batman: Arkham Knight‘s very own Batmobile combat, while functional and competent, seemed to miss the point of the rest of the game. Mad Max on the other hand is all about the cars. There’s a pretty big variation on how […]

Mad Max Ground Combat & 5 Tips to Get Good at It

A lot of games have taken inspiration from the Batman Arkham series’ excellent combat, and Mad Max, also published by Warner Bros. is no exception. It has every reason to when the combat in those games is so satisfying. But, as with Arkham’s other imitators, it’s not quite as good as what you find in the Arkham games. With that said, it’s hardly the worst imitator out there. Though it doesn’t reach the great heights of something like Sleeping Dogs […]

6 Ways Assassin’s Creed Unity Is Better than the Other Ones Even Though It’s Worse than the Other Ones

It’s that time of year again. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is coming out this week, and I didn’t even remember until yesterday. I work in the games industry, but a mainly covering Japanese games, so that makes it okay, right? Right? Syndicate has had quite a bit of marketing, but as usual with Ubisoft a little bit too much. It kind of blends into a hum. Background noise. A lot of people are worried this one will be bad in the same […]

The “Oscars” – Games of the Year 2014 Awards

Different year: same rules. A game of the month for each of the twelve months of the year, followed by a game of the year. I’ll also be dishing out additional awards too, so keep an eye out for those. January – Broken Age: Act 1 Contrary to many armchair video game publishers online I’ve been nothing but impressed with Broken Age. A wonderfully crafted adventure game that is both super approachable in design yet also manages to maintain the charm […]

The “Oscars” – Games of the Year 2013 Awards

Everything that happens annually is great. My birthday? Amazing. A date with someone of the opposite sex? I mean, it’s okay I guess, but then so are dates with the same sex. An invasive full-body cavity search just to make sure you aren’t accidentally hiding anything? It feels so good, so reassuring. But what I also love is end-of-the-year lists of things. Karl Frampton’s list of the top six nights out this year? A real classic. I printed it off […]
