A Museum of Our Medium 1

There’s a cardinal rule at play with video game reviewers, which is that you cannot review a video game having not completed it. The ramifications of such a thing are plainly obvious – it could send an incorrect message about a game, misguide readers, dramatically alter the score and worst of all, compromise the sales of a game. As unshakable of a rule as that is, it’s a spell that must be broken with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. If the video game media held Skyrim up to such a rule, it would pr...

Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 0

It’s November 2011; and like clockwork, it’s time for latest Call of Duty title to hit stores. Another big Call of Duty release, another year of record sales figures and another trip to the well before it runs dry. Activision’s annual juggernaut is back, and in the form of Modern Warfare 3 – the new household game with the household name. In what will be perhaps the most pivotal and telling year of the series’ existence, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 hopes to maintain the upward climb of commer...

     When a video game manages to make a history making 170 million dollars in sales within the first 24 hours of its launch, there isn’t much of a point in telling you that you should buy the game. You probably have it. For that reason, this is one of the rare cases when a review means absolutely nothing. That’s right. A review doesn’t matter. So if you’re actually still reading this, then you’re ready to hear some truth about the Halo franchise, and Halo 3. It’s time to let the after-launch hy...

Out Like a Light 0

          The First-Person Shooter genre is quite an interesting topic of conversation. Ask around, and you’ll find many people who feel that the genre is full of games that are cut from the same cloth as one another. How many times can we be the space marine in another futuristic sci-fi setting, taking on an alien legion who threatens to destroy the planet? Even though games that follow that mold can clearly be successful, it’s nice to finally find a game that can be the square-pegged example o...

Welcome to Rapture. You'll Like it Here. 0

One of the things we’re taught to do when we write is to leave ourselves out of whatever we’re writing. I'm not supposed to say "I" or "me" or anything relating to myself, but consider that rule broken. This is one of those rare cases where I will break the fourth wall. Why? Well, the experience that I’ve had with Bioshock is one that I can only tell from my perspective. Bioshock is a game that will leave a different impression on everyone who plays it. It’s a game that can be seen as many types...
