This week on the Super Circuitcast! Rami, S, and Matt talk about Dark SoulsMetal Gear Solid, and Hearthstone. Matt also attempts to talk about episodic gaming, but really, who cares? Everyone knows that we're all just here for the butt jokes, anyway.

Why In The World Are We Buying Digital Content At GameStop?

Jul
17

So, last year, more than $724 million of GameStop's sales were from digital content. And, even though you can purchase Watch Dogs season passes online, nearly three quarters were bought in brick and mortar stores. Just, what? Are we not yet familiar with the concept of digital content? Does buying something without receiving a physical object still freak us out that much? Are we seriously that uninformed about what is available to us?

These 8 Collections Of Random Words Should Be Video Games

Jul
11

I recently wrote an article about the craziest games on Kickstarter. I also recently got back on Facebook. This has exposed me to such enticing game titles as Bubble Witch Saga 2. Or maybe it was Bubble Witch 2 Saga? In any case it seemed clear that in the casual gaming world randomly mashing up any group of two or three words can make a hit game, so I’ve used a random word generator to generate some of my own titles. Those of you with programming skills, please feel free to make them a reality and forward all of the profits to me via PayPal.

Pre-Order Incentives Have Crossed the Line from Rewards to Punishment

Jul
09

A pre-order incentive is supposed to reward you for being a fan. Unfortunately, they're increasingly being used as a means of punishing those of us who refuse to commit to purchases before we've had a chance to try a demo or read a review. Nice packaging, a soundtrack CD, and a booklet with behind-the-scenes info were one thing. They’re clearly aimed at the hardcore fan who would have bought the game no matter what, and they don’t affect the gameplay experience for anyone who picks up a copy after the launch. Then it was skins, digital currency, and exclusive weapons. This was a little more worrying to me.

Jul

This is just... just the worst. SEGA has announced that Alien: Isolation will feature Ellen Ripley and the crew of the classic original film... if you pre-order the game from GameStop. So gross.

This just in, every game is now a MOBA. MOBA MOBA MOBA. MOBA. Now that I've gotten that out of my system, Gearbox has announced that their next game will be a first-person take on the genre, and will be released on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

Airtight Next in a Long Line of Game Studio Closures: Are We on the Verge of a Major Creative Slump?

Jul
06

Airtight Games closed just weeks after releasing their last title, Murdered: Soul Suspect to lackluster reviews. Over the course of four years Airtight released three major PC and Console games and a few mobile offerings. Their best reviewed effort, Quantum Conundrum, benefited greatly from the presence of Portal developer Kim Swift. Their first offering Dark Void was pretty much what it looked like on the box, a generic shooter with about an hour's worth of cool jet-pack shit. Their story is a reminder of the risk and hardship of game development and the shrinking environment in which top end games are developed.

Not Every Great Video Game Character Has to Be Straight, and These 7 Characters Are the Proof

Jul
03

This week, BioWare once again made great strides in the LGBT scene with the announcement of Dorian, a new "fully gay" character to be included in the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition. Games have been getting more and more progressive in the past few years when it comes to being more LGBT friendly, and announcements like racially and sexually diverse marriage in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn prove that we're headed in the right direction.
