Elite is looking dangerously good

Having watched the latest trailer for Elite Dangerous I think I need to go take a cold shower.  If they can re-capture the feel of the old Elite with video & audio effects of this quality this could be the greatest thing in gaming for a long long time. This is made even sweeter by the absolute lack of any decent space combat games for the last decade or so,

I still hope that Disney will realise that a (good) new X-Wing vs TIE Fighter game would be a license to print money.

I'm Not Addicted to Video Games

I’m Not Addicted

Few things make me feel as old as when I think about just how old some of the video games I remember from my youth are now ...

Even Superman Plays Video Games

I think video games is a bigger problem than guns, because video games affect people. But the First Amendment limits what we can do about video games and the Second Amendment to the Constitution limits what we can do about guns.

- U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander

Just let those words sink in for a moment: "Video games is a bigger problem than guns"! Because video games affect people!? Guns obviously have no affect on people, that's why we hand them out to our armed forces. Oh, hang on a moment, now I realise his mistake — he was thinking about Superman, guns do have no affect on Superman.  Even Superman plays video games!

“Gaymer”

Everyone seems to be missing the point completely (not sure whether maliciously or through stupidity — gaming journalists aren’t the brightest bunch so I suspect the latter). “Gaymer” today is indeed in the popular vernacular, but that’s mostly down to the original website (the owner of which has [...]

Greenlight

I can not believe people have their pants in a twist over Valve adding a $100 listing fee to their Greenlight service to cut out all the dross being submitted (think Xbox Live Indie Marketplace), especially when that fee goes straight to charity. $100 is absolutely nothing when you consider it’s [...]

The Verge: Don’t Be A Hero

I’d never seen or heard of “The Verge” before, but you know what they actually have some well written gaming articles — it’s not just another blog regurgitating press releases (or re-using other peoples work — I found this via one of the big gaming news sites who had simply stolen the money quote [...]

Mass Effect Extended Cuts

You can skip the first 5 minutes or so of each video. They’ve added just enough that I’d say the endings now feel like an ending, although I still think my biggest problem with them is the way it panned out in gameplay terms, with the end of the game basically being decided by walking down one of [...]
SWOS History

A Piece of Gaming History Unearthed

Before there were achievements OCD gamers like myself resorted to keeping written records of our achievements … witness the written record of my first season in Sensible World of Soccer — despite my claims it’s the “1990-00″ season it’s clearly the first season of the game, so that’s either [...]
