There was much ado about Resident Evil 4 being a departure from the pre-rendered escapades of the PS1 affectations and Code Veronica.

"The 90′s scene was all about furry hedgehogs and cute plumbers until Midway Games came and changed everything. Ed Boon and his friend John Tobias wanted to make a fighting game that was brutal and bloody. Originally, the game that eventually became ‘Mortal Kombat’ was supposed to be based on martial arts superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme."

"With all the hatred being spewed around from one side or the other about one thing or another, it can really drag you down. It’s funny looking at my article count just take a complete nosedive as it becomes this taxing chore now to avoid all the vilification targeted at gamers for simply being gamers. Well, thankfully we have videos like “This is a Video Game” to remind us why we celebrate the culture of gaming and what it means to be a gamer.""

"Oh, what’s this? There are actually games being discussed again here at One Angry Gamer? For a minute it seemed like everything went to a pit in a pot full of the piss of a cesspool. Thankfully, PAX Prime 2014 has been a nice mitigating factor to offset all the depressing news surrounding game culture. On the up-and-up games like Firewatch have been announced and it really helps add some levity to a very darkening situation surrounding the likes of #GamerGate."

"It’s become a rather twisted story when we delve into the behavior of both sides of the #GamerGate scandal. While there are some rotten apples on the side of gamers throwing mean insults, harassment and abuse toward the way of those that are labeled as “Social Justice Warriors”, there’s also a fair amount of harassment coming in from the other side that certainly makes them live up to the term of being “warriors” for their preconceived notion of social justice."

Recently a new type of game model has emerged. Early Access models allow consumers to pay in order to play a game before it releases and players can offer feedback and criticism while the game is still being made. Others have announced that they plan to offer regular live streams to keep people up to during a titles development. Now admittedly this sounds pretty sweet. I’m all for more transparency in gaming. After all who wouldn’t want to peer beyond the curtain and get their hands on the ne...

"A new video, information, images, documents and conversations have been made public relating to additional corruption attaching Silverstring Media and the Indie Games Festival (IGF) to the GamerGate scandal currently rocking the gaming industry. While I would usually have jokes to crack, memes to post and gifs to help roll out the narrative, I’m going to forgo my usual schtick and just feed you the relevant information, and you can take away from it what you will. Fasten your seat-belts, it’s..."

If the Tales series is known for a couple of things, it's the following - taking plot conventions and putting its own spin on them, and letting the player whack enemies in the head, though Hell Fire manages to extract a few more CCs of customization and a gaggle of side quests... even if he's not huge on the plot. Then again, he had all but fallen in love with the combat system, especially the way in which the bosses force you to utilize sai...

"Two new interesting games have launched on Steam (depending on what you define as interesting). The first is a classic sprite-based RPG from Aldorlea Games called Millennium 3: Cry Wolf. It’s the third game in a series that happened to be greenlit by gamers, where players assume the role of Marine, as she and her friends journey through the eastern part of the world to recruit members to the team and fight back against the Lords of Mystrock. Yeah, yeah, it sounds like a Saturday morning D&D c..."
