Uncharted, We Meet Again

Sometimes, it feels as if certain games come to exist in my house thanks to pure fate.  Most of my games I seek out myself, but Uncharted is one series I never once put my mind to acquiring, and yet, here I stand the owner of not one, but two, entries from the series.  The…

Listmas 2016: Eight of the Chilliest Songs in Gaming

With Listmas taking place in the chilly grip of wintertime, it’s only natural that some of our lists reflect this icy time of year.  We’ve already covered snowy levels and chilly characters in past years, so it’s high time we discussed eight chilly songs that will surely have you buttoning up your coats and seeking…

Listmas 2016: An Ode to Sidekicks

In this season of giving and good will towards all, it would only be fair for at least one Listmas list to give some attention to the oft under-appreciated sidekicks of gaming.  It can be easy for said sidekicks to get lost within the shadow of the more famed hero of the game, but that…

Day 12: A Game Everyone Should Play

I am slowly making my way through the 30 days of video game topics I started…probably a few years ago, and today we have finally reached…number 12.  I’m not even halfway done yet!  Yikes!  Well, this topic involves a game everyone should play, and I had to put careful consideration into which one I would…

So Many Games to be Thankful For

Seeing as my fellow admins wrote their own Thanksgiving-themed posts (a long time ago…) on games they were thankful for, I thought I better get my tail into gear and write one of my own. I intended on publishing this quite some time ago, but Listmas came up, and I wasn’t able to get to…

Jak and Daxter: I Miss the Simple Days

I didn’t already write a post about this, right? I don’t think I did….  Anyway, some time ago, I wrote a post comparing the “Jak and Daxter” and “Ratchet & Clank” series, and I thought it was high time I gave you guys a more in-depth look at the “Jak” series, one of my favorites,…

Great Games I Almost Missed

Sometimes, I like to think about how things would be if I made different decisions.  Like, if I had never decided to buy the PlayStation 2, my first venture outside my previously Nintendo-only domain, what games would I be playing now?  What would my collection look like?  I’m sure we all have times where there…

My Favorite (Major) Releases Of 2013

Even though 2014 is upon us, why not take a step back from and have one final look back at 2013. This year is going to get pretty busy with new releases soon enough, so the time is right. 2013 was an interesting year from a reporting standpoint as it marked a transition between the…

Glitches Involving a Disappearing Act, With no Magicians Responsible

Today’s addition to my little glitch series is a common one, when things just mysteriously vanish.  Mysteriously. Sometimes, the world falls apart around you: This happens in “Spyro” games I played on the Cube.  For me, it was quite common in “Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly” for the ground to disappear in the second world, the…
