Close to the Sun Looks a Lot Like BioShock, and I’m Psyched

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything even remotely close to a new BioShock. It’s not too surprising of course; Kevin Levine did close his studio (Irrational Games) after completing work on BioShock Infinite, but it’s still kind of odd since 2K still owns the rights to the series. Whatever the case, we’re in…

System Shock 3 Gets New Trailer at GDC 2019

I’ll be honest, I forgot this game was even coming. The System Shock series of games has become the stuff of gaming legend over the years, so the idea that another one is in the works is still taking some time to sink in. Regardless, System Shock 3 is coming, and we have a new…

Prey: Going from Hunted to…still Hunted

In a year full of surprisingly good games, I still somehow found myself floored when Prey was…surprisingly good. The first hour demo presented a game which asked players to use their wits in order to survive the many dangers of Talos I. It presented a game where rash decisions could, and would, end badly. It…

Attacking My Steam Library, This Time With Feeling!

I’m going to imagine that there aren’t many Steam users out there who haven’t amassed a significant library of games. I know I have. With a Steam library that’s currently pushing 100 (tiny, compared to some, I bet) and a dearth of new games to play (HA! Did someone say “Isn’t your Fallout 4 character…

Saturday Video Round Up: September 11 – 17

The weekend is back and that means it’s time for some new videos! Lets see what’s on tap for this week’s edition of the Saturday Video Round Up. Dishonored 2 dropped a new trailer on everyone, which focuses most of it’s time on the story. Unlike most promotional items, Corvo was heavily featured, showing off…

Saturday Video Round Up: August 7 – 13

The weekend is back once again and with it comes a brand new edition of the Video Round Up. We’re back again to bring you the best gameplay and trailers from the week that was. Let’s get to the good stuff, shall we? One of the biggest games of last year is coming back this…

Resonance: Dancers On a String

The original BioShock really did have an incredible cast of characters didn’t it? The likes of Andrew Ryan and Atlas stick out the most, but the more one thinks about the game, the more characters pop back into the ol’ memory. There’s Brigid Tenenbaum, the repentant scientist; Yi Suchong, the one whose reach exceeded his…

Watching Previews: A Guide

Previews are made to generate hype. This has always been the case, and indeed will always be the case. If you’ve been playing for awhile, then you know that previews cannot be blindly trusted; not even previews that mostly feature gameplay. Still, they’re hard to ignore. Getting excited for a game you’re looking forward is…

[REVISITED] Immersion and the Breaking of it

We close out our month of reblogs (thanks for following along!) with this fantastic article from David of Plus10Damage, a brilliant gaming site in its own right that you should totally check out. In this article, David maps out the notion of immersion in horror games and what happens when that connection between game and…

UWG Top 10: #8 – BioShock

Image Gathered From Flickr User: Charlie NZ I almost didn’t play BioShock. After having loved this game ever since picking it up in 2007 (has it really been that long?!), the thought of never having played it almost doesn’t seem possible. Yet this is true; Back when it first came out I very nearly passed…
