Lost Too Soon: Ryan Davis

Published on July 10, 2013 by in editorial

It occurs to me that I forgot to write an article last week.  Shit.  Oh well, water under the bridge.  This week is going to be about Ryan Davis.  Yes, you’ve probably already read a thousand stories about what he did for media (and if you haven’t, what the fuck?  Go to Giant Bomb right

Publishers Are Doing It Wrong

Published on June 26, 2013 by in editorial

If there is one universal punching bag in the video games industry, it’s publishers.  I think a lot of people interchange the term “developer” and “publisher” when they discuss them in articles or on visual/audio media, which is rather incorrect.  In the games industry you have three major bodies that come together to release a

Regarding the Xbox One’s New DRM Policy

Published on June 20, 2013 by in editorial

Yesterday Microsoft changed a few of its policies regarding DRM on the Xbox One. You can read about all the details from Don Mattrick’s post itself, but after being frustrated by many people complaining (about the changes), I have a few thoughts of my own (and will try to keep this from turning into a

Challanges of a Console Gamer buying a Gaming PC

Published on June 19, 2013 by in editorial

Over the last few weeks I decided to finally pick up a gaming PC.  Those of us who stick mostly to console games have plenty of reasons to avoid gaming PCs: high price points, few games are exclusive, controllers are not the main interface, required technical knowledge of hardware and software (if you plan to

Begun, This Console War Has

Published on June 12, 2013 by in editorial

It was the number heard across all enthusiast press sites, feeds, and liveblogs: 399.99.  At that moment Sony undercut Microsoft’s 499.99 price tag on the Xbox One.  Much like Sony had done with the original Playstation, performing the same $100 less trick against Sega’s Saturn thanks to its later press conference back in 1995, the numbers speak

Buck Up Little Camper

Published on May 29, 2013 by in editorial

Well it has been just over a week since Microsoft announced the poorly named Xbox One and I figured that by now everyone would have calmed down a bit, remembered that E3 was just around the corner, and been excited.  Nope, that’s not what has happened.  Countless articles are being run by hit-hungry big time

Stop Pre-Ordering Games

Published on May 15, 2013 by in editorial

I know on the B-Team Podcast we like to throw around the phrase “I pre-ordered it” but rarely is that what we actually mean. To me a pre-order is when you go into a store (or visit an online retailer) and pay towards the total cost of the game (typically $5 minimum) to have a

Game Reviews Need A Change

Published on May 8, 2013 by in editorial

Warning: I am particularly emotional about the topic this week, so I apologize if I make brash judgements, swear, or potentially bring you down.  It’s getting on summer time, which means that the sun will be shining, kids will be out of school, and there won’t be dick coming out for the next 3 or

What the Hell is a Roguelike?

Last week on the B-Team, which I sadly was unable to make because I was drunk in a bar with my soon-to-be brother-in-law playing 90s jukebox Bingo, the gang were talking about the term “roguelike”.  Lately many podcasts have started using this term in such a broad spectrum that it occurred to me, and my

Call To Action

Okay, this is going to be a short one this week because frankly I’ve not seen anything significant to discuss this week.  I, like probably all of you, am sick and tired of all the guesswork into what the next Xbox will and won’t have – it’s the only remaining variable people, be patient.  So
