    Zero Punctuation: Mighty No. 9

    The problem people had/have with the graphics is because this game had a nine million dollar budget and looks this bad, where as games with barely a tenth of that money or less (Half Genie Hero, Dragon's Crown, Skullgirls, Shovel Knight) look a lot better in comparison. You are correct, the...

    Zero Punctuation: Cave Story - Heart and Art

    There was the jetpack deal, and then there was the deal immediately afterwards where an essential item to get the best ending is in a corner while your friend is nowhere near it. There's a lot of things like that the game never tells you about, not even vague hints.

    Zero Punctuation: E3 2015 - Hype Train Is Back

    All I wanted from Ubisoft was a new Rayman, maybe another game in the Origins/Legends style but that didn't happen so maybe next year. World of Final Fantasy looked adorable and Kingdom Hearts 3 looked fantastic so I'm hype for those.

    The Honorable and Dishonorable Game Mentions For 2014

    Not for Mario or Samus, but practically every other game Nintendo has made had melee combat at some point. Link for example. One of Kirby's abilities is Fighter, Little Mac came from a boxing game, etc. That small nitpick aside I figured you weren't going to review Smash as you made it clear...

    Zero Punctuation: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

    Another Metroid title made by Retro for the Wii U? With Prime's gameplay style? I'd buy that immediately.

    Zero Punctuation: Broken Age

    The only kickstarter I ever cared for was Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero.

    Jimquisition: Joy Begets Anger

    I remember making a comment on Youtube about how Saints Row IV was my game of the year. Cue a bunch of people saying I'm an idiot and that GTAV beats SRIV out of the park. Funny thing is that I played GTA V, and yeah it is good, but SRIV was my goty still, because that game gave me more joy and...

    Zero Punctuation: BioShock: Infinite

    Gonna post my thoughts here, I was gonna make a full review, but meh I couldn't find a way to tie all of the points together. No spoilers, so don't worry if you haven't played the game. Story points: One thing that always stuck out in my head was the dialogue. Booker barely ever talks with...

    Your Least Satisfying Gaming Victory

    The final boss of Borderlands. It didn't even feel like a boss honestly, I just sat behind the pillar, taking pod-shots with my guns while the boss just sat there, then the piss poor ending.

    The Five games that define you as a gamer

    You've made me think pretty damn hard about this, but I think I've got my five. 1. Pokemon Silver The game that started it all for me. I got it at Christmas when I was four along with my GBA which is still in my house and working well to this day. I think I put like hundreds of hours into...

    Being nice in Dishonored sucks.....

    The problem comes in when the amount of non-lethal takedowns are very limited. You have one ranged method (Sleep Darts) and one close up method (strangling) where as you have a bunch of lethal ways to get rid of foes (unless I've missed a blueprint I have yet to find a Sleep Darts capacity...
