2019 Developer Report Cards: Ubisoft Edition

Oh Ubisoft! What can I say about Ubisoft that hasn’t already been said about Flint’s water supply? Ubisoft confuses me as a gamer and as a guy who writes about games. On one hand, they are constantly pulling maneuvers that make you wonder what chucklehead is driving the vehicle. On the other hand, they’re competent […]

Community Concerns: The Importance of Reading Comprehension

Yea, we’re still talking about Blizzcon. It’s been a while since I talked about the whole nontroversy surrounding Blizzard and the prize pool for World of Warcraft’s Blizzcon tournaments, so I will sum up for those who don’t feel like clicking the link in this paragraph. Blizzard sold digital toys with 25% proceeds going toward […]

Nontroversial: Blizzard and the Disappearing Half Million

Now I’m mad at Blizzard just as much as the next guy, which is why this article is going to hurt me more than it does the people who I am about to point out. Today is October 31, 2019 of the year of Arnold, and that can only mean one thing; it’s time for […]

Review: The Outer Worlds

Given I have an Xbox Game Pass subscription and would have had access less than 24 hours later anyway, this has not changed my opinion on the game) Why are you reading my review of The Outer Worlds? You can literally […]

In Plain English: The Grinch Who Spoiled Fortnite

Dear internet, That video game nondisclosure agreement that your buddies tell you doesn’t matter because “it’s video games” and thus not enforceable in court? It’s probably enforceable in court. In fact it’s very likely enforceable. To the shock of the world and heaven in the sky, Epic Games has filed a lawsuit this week against […]

Community Concerns: Sorry Fallout 76 Players, You’re On Your Own

I hit the breaking point with Bethesda and Fallout 76 so long ago that I couldn’t honestly tell you when I got sick and tired of hearing about this game. In fact, it’s hard to believe that Fallout 76 just hit its one year anniversary. It feels like this game has been a living parasite […]
