    Should Disney get into the video game business?

    After the complete bum-hattery they've pulled with all the Marvel games over the years? Here's what's effected me personally: Marvel Ultimate Avengers 2: Pulling the DLC from the store because licensing so then it's impossible to play online as most people don't have it Marvel Avengers...

    Should gamers have control over gaming culture?

    A very good question; but before I answer I need to put some things into context which is nothing more than my own perception of the industry. To classify "gamers" you need to look at anyone who plays videogames, likes them, and seeks out playing more. At this point most people with access...

    no screen from laptop to tv

    Is this a fresh install? Might be missing some crucial drivers or Windows Updates. Try turning off the laptop, connecting the HDMI, and switching it back on. Sometimes for whatever reason it fails to connect properly so see if this works. Go to the display properties as follows: Open...

    no screen from laptop to tv

    *glances at thread* *cracks fingers* Ok so here's what ya need to do. 1. Make sure that the TV is set to the correct input channel. If your TV has multiple HDMI inputs that it's easy to confuse one for the other one. It sounds like a "no shit sherlock" moment but you'll be surprised...

    Microsoft: "We're Ready" for Xbox One-PS4 Cross-Play

    Final Fantasy XI was an MMO that allowed crossplay for the PS2, Xbox360, and PC all at the same time. No shit the technology is there, it's been there from the very beginning. Lack of technology has never been a factor in disallowing crossplay, only lack of foresight (designing from the ground...

    Hulk Hogan Awarded $115 Million in Gawker Sex Tape Case

    I've always liked Hogan and I looked at the whole thing this way: Yes he said "a bad word", but his marriage was breaking up and he was about to plow his friend's wife. At the worst, he's an old racist but kept it to himself and never led it be evident in his work in dealing with black...

    Hulk Hogan Awarded $115 Million in Gawker Sex Tape Case

    I'd wager sooner rather than later. All Hogan needs to do is his usual rounds of morning talk show spots (which he will, celebrating his victory) and tell the world he's learned his lesson. Cry a crocodile tear or two behind his sunglasses, and that'll be enough good publicity for WWE to give...

    Hulk Hogan Awarded $115 Million in Gawker Sex Tape Case

    WWE's HoF is a minefield of politics. Sunny did a sextape recently; still in the HoF despite being an all round ***** and addict. Chyna did a couple of sex tapes a while back, is arguably mentally unstable, yet is blackballed from the HoF because of heat with HHH. Go figure.

    Hulk Hogan Awarded $115 Million in Gawker Sex Tape Case

    If they started removing people from pro wrestling hall of fames for random shit, nobody would be in the hall of fame. Except maybe the Rock. Everyone else is either a drug addict, racist, wife beater, or just plain batshit insane.

    Square-Enix's New Episodic Formula May Be a Good Thing

    I never included Final Fantasy 7. It's clear from the rest of my post I'm specifying Hitman and Tomb Raider as the prime examples with slightly dipping into Deus Ex as a "maybe". In fact my post goes into detail about why games where the plot isn't the driving point would make good Episodic...

    Square-Enix's New Episodic Formula May Be a Good Thing

    As I linked before, Steam's pre-order information is out of date. "The first episode will cost $15, with each following episode costing $10 each - or you can purchase the whole game for $60." This is a slippery slope...

    Square-Enix's New Episodic Formula May Be a Good Thing

    Hi all, been a while since I've posted but after some stuff shaking down in the game world recently and based on some conversations I've had with people, I'd like to share my own thoughts on the subject and see what everyone else thinks about it. For those not in the know, please see here...

    These Gorgeous, Grotesque Miniatures Fill the Box of 7 Sins

    While the game does look very good, I'm not too confident about backing further Kickstarter projects from Cool Mini Or Not... I've backed their previous project, Zombicide - Black Plague, and am getting horribly burned with the shipping rates. Their initial quote was $15-$30 for shipping but...

    Alternatives to the Glut of Metroidvania-Style Platformers

    Yahtzee's idea at the end sounds like a reverse Megaman game. Instead of starting out with nothing and picking the levels to tackle how you want it, smacking the boss at the end and getting a shiny new toy, it happens in reverse. Why it wouldn't work is when it comes to adding...

    Legend of Korra: "We're Putting the Band Back Together"

    It would be absolutely hilarious if Team Avatar & The Airbenders (now there's a band name) all team up and gather in the swamp and they just find all the mechs dismantled and all the Earth Empire soldiers, including Kuvira, strung up in vines and Toph just sitting there drinking and be all, "Oh...
