Perception is reality in this first person puzzler developed by Pillow Castle Games. Museum of Simulation Technology, which is currently the working title of the game, is inspired by “forced perspective”, a camera trick, which makes things appear smaller or larger, depending on where the viewer is standing. In the game, this translates to being able to grab objects of any size and move them around, forcing them to grow…

It appears that the Dark Knight has failed to rise on PC. After being pulled from Steam earlier this year, the game was relaunched on PC earlier this week. While some problems were addressed, many players have reported that many of the issues with the game still persist. Players have experienced a noticeable difference in frame rate that has caused the game to stutter and freeze at certain points. Because…

Hello dear readers!  I had a fun time getting stuck in a rainstorm a few weeks ago, and decided to take shelter in an arcade instead of driving in the craziness.  Rain makes desert dwellers crazy, believe me.  While there, I saw the previously mention  Time Crisis 5, which was an absolute surprise.  I also found another wonderful surprise: Angry Birds Arcade. A few months ago, I heard news that…

The Future of Sports Games

With the recent release of NBA 2K16, now seems as good a time as ever to address my growing disappointment with sports games. Now that we have systems capable of more than ever imagined, it only seems right that the games we play now reflect this. However, sports games seem stuck in rut. While the graphics have become noticeably better, the game play has not. There has been a very…

October 11, 2015

Hello dear readers! I have had an interesting Amiibo hunting week.  I hope you guys found some of your much wanted unicorns these past few days.  I found a Captain Falcon, and I couldn’t be happier.  I also saw Marths, Charizards, Dark Pits, Foxes, Little Macs, and some lonely Olimars.  It was magical. Three days ago, though, I couldn’t find anything but a few neglected Luigis.  Rumors were flying around…

This past weekend, the Mascone West Center in San Francisco was filled with purple from wall to wall for Twitchcon 2015. This was the first convention hosted by the game-streaming giant and it did not disappoint. I could give you an outside perspective of the things I observed but I opted to go for a more personal touch. I will be discussing TwitchCon in the style of a conversation between…

NBA 2K16 “At the Line”

October 1, 2015

The time has come for the yearly iteration of NBA 2K. Commonly, 2K is met with criticism over their one year development cycle. Opponents of this development strategy argue that one year of development does not allow the game the opportunity to grow and improve year to year as all changes are small tweaks and not large overhauls.  This has most certainly been true of NBA 2K in the past…
