Console Wars: A New Hope

GOWI’m geezer enough to remember the first Xbox Magazine throwing shade at PS2 for having DVDs playable with a controller instead of requiring the remote. Those days were full of console exclusives so that you bought one if you needed X title in your life and the other for Y series. Publishers have been blurring those lines more and more with fewer must-have titles, but I’m excited again for the first time in many years.

Or maybe I’m just a fanboy.  Continue reading


Pixels. So hot right now.


After another grueling week putting in hours at the business factory, you’ve made it home again. What better way to relax than to sink back into the times when you had no responsibilities and games existed in glorious 16-bit graphics?  Continue reading

‘Battlerite’ is Now Free to Play… and it’s Totally Worth it!

BakkoAshkaIf you’ve been in the PC gaming world in the last 10 or 15 years, you’ve heard of MOBAs — multiplayer online battle arenas.

I’m Gonna Let You Finish, But ‘Hollow Knight’ Is The Greatest Game Of All Time

Getting to Know Your Gamer: Chris’ Top 10


Hello to all you out there in the Nerdiverse! I’m Chris, your resident gamer extraordinaire. We haven’t been properly introduced (unless you’ve heard my appearance on The Amazing Nerdiverse podcast – Pt. 1 here and Pt. 2 here), but if you’re going to care about anything I have to say about games, you’re going to need to know a little bit about me first. What better way to do that than to peruse my gallery of favorites.

This is mostly a personal favorite Top 10, not necessarily what I think are the best games out there. I don’t have Ocarina of Time on the list, but I recognize how groundbreaking and trendsetting it was, and how well it stands even to this day. This list is also not laid out in any particular ranked order — except for number one (by far my favorite gaming experience, and if there’s any justice in the world, it will be hailed as an all time great as time goes on).
