Jul
29

A new trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has dropped, and it's intent on reminding you that this game does in fact have a story. It's about how Kevin Spacey uses his wealth and power to organize elaborate games of laser tag. Or something. There were a lot of shooting and explosions and I got distracted.

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.
