My earliest memories of gaming involve a Nintendo Entertainment System, a television that still used tubes, a family room, and my brother. Before we even had a game where two people could play together, I remember sitting and watching my brother play Super Mario Bros. Occasionally, he’d let me play a life or two, but that was all I needed to get hooked. Pretty soon, games like Blaster Master and Final Fantasy were finding their way onto my Christmas list alongside the Transformers and GI Joes. I used to play so much that my family nicknamed me “Nintendo Boy”, a moniker that occasionally still gets brought up today. From the Nintendo I moved on to playing PC games, thanks once again to my family. I was too young at the time to really understand them, but my mom used to play the “Zork” series and I’d sit next to her while she played trying to contribute and follow along as best as I could. Nowadays I mostly play Playstation and Nintendo DS games, although I still occasionally sneak in a PC game or two and a large portion of my co-op time comes from playing with friends.

Aside from gaming, I also enjoy watching movies, listening to music (anything but country), re-learning to play bass, and reading authors like Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and whatever good science fiction/fantasy novel comes my way. It is my hope that one day I might be able to switch jobs from government contractor to full-time games journalist or freelancer. A man can dream, a man can dream…

The "Minecraft" meets "Doom" of FPS

Gunscape Coming to PlayStation 4 and Wii U

Last year we heard about a game with an interesting take on the whole FPS genre. Gunscape combines world-building and FPS elements to create a game that allows players to build their own levels, and then play them with (or against) friends. Originally slated for a PC and Xbox One release, the title will be arriving on PlayStation 4 and Wii U early next year.

Probably a party you're ok not being invited to

Zombie Party Arrives on Steam Early Access

We're so used to zombies just being these big downers; always coming after us for our brains and just generally being not sociable. But what if they threw a party and invited? That would be pretty cool right? Ok, so Zombie Party isn't really about zombies throwing a party, but it's got some kind of crazy rainbow shooting gun so it's got that going for it.... which is nice.

Destiny's Forthcoming Revisions for Taken King

The one year anniversary of Destiny is fast approaching. Last year, we were pretty excited to see what all the game had in store for us. This year... well, we're a bit more tempered. There have been some highlights over the past year, but also a lot of missteps. Developer Bungie assures its community that it is listening and has some big changes around the bend.

We Cast Magic Missile in Card Hunter

Long ago, in the days of yore, it all began with a man named Gary. Gary Gygax, that is, the co-designer behind the highly influential tabletop RPG, Dungeons and Dragons. The free-to-play deck building/RTS/faux tabletop game Card Hunter pays great homage to these and recently added a three player co-op mode, so what better game to check out so close to the legend's birthday.

Fight off the hordes

Endless Mode Added to Orcs Must Die! Unchained

News about the next entry in the Orcs Must Die! series, titled Orcs Must Die! Unchained, has been scarce since it was first revealed last autumn. Unlike previous entries, the game has shifted in mechanics to be somewhat more "MOBA-like", though there would be a non-PvP option for players just looking to play with friends. With the latest update to the game's beta (still closed), it looks like we'll be getting a type of endless/horde mode in addition to the standard game.

An interesting change to the game

New Bloodborne Patch Will Scale Lower Level Players to Host

The Souls series and, by extension, Bloodborne haven't always been the easiest when it comes to connecting with your friends. Arguments about core mechanics of how summons are intended to work aside, it appears that gothic horror adventure title will be getting a patch next week to make matching easier and, more intriguing, to scale the stats of lower level players to the host.
