Women in Video Games

These types of discussions are always fun, because everyone ends up feeling judged. ↓ TranscriptHOBO: So what does the representation of women in video games tell us about the cultural portrayal of femininity? TREY: Just because women in video games are all hot and barely clothed doesn't change how I feel! MEGAN: Really? TREY: Stop judging me! Read More »

Best Video Game Ever

I enjoy reading gamers complain about the limitations of games. “Ugh, why can’t I go inside every building?” As if the developers are simply lazy and could easily accommodate such a request. ↓ TranscriptRICK: Someone should make a video game where you can go anywhere and do anything you want! Like, if you want to pilot a plane--have at it! ... Read More »

Next Generation Gaming

I wish this wasn’t so true about my own life. While I still love games, I find myself playing them less and less. Not due to lack of interest, but simply a lack of time. I can basically forget any time-sink like an MMO. ↓ TranscriptRICK: I put my hundred bucks down and preordered a Playstation 4! TREY: Awesome! RICK: ... Read More »

Ban Violent Video Games

I keep waiting for the reports of massive deaths caused by Katamari Damacy. I haven’t heard of anyone rolling up victims into a giant ball, but you know it must be coming. Stupid video games. ↓ TranscriptMOM: We need to ban these violent video games! BILLY: What do you want to ban? BILLY: Do you want to ban games featuring ... Read More »

Video Game Violence

There is always something amusing about the argument that the media doesn’t affect us. While it may not turn us into serial killers, it does have its effects.

They implied there could possibly be a ... Read More »

Hottest New Game Release

I love video games. I love playing them, and I love talking about them. I do not love a lot of the whining about video games. This recent holiday season gave us fantastic titles like Halo 4 and Assassin’s Creed 3, and yet there was plenty of bellyaching about there being nothing “new” to these games. Of course, when a ...

Adults Only Video Games

Jokes aside, it is odd that there aren’t more video games that let you play cops or cowboys. I know occasionally something pops up like Gun or Sunset Riders, but they are few are far between. For cop games usually it’s just a rationale to have you shooting ninjas or something. But outside of L.A. Noire and the old Police ... Read More »

Werewolves of the Night Clan

No, not all video game players are hopelessly socially awkward. I love video games, and I certainly don’t think that of most of my friends who also play video games. However, the ones that are can be quite funny. And why are there always werewolves in everything? ↓ TranscriptTREY: What? I'm infected by the Night Clan? Great, now I'm a ... Read More »

Rage Quit

I always suspect that most online gamers are miserable, but they’re too proud to quit because that might bring some happiness to the lives of the other miserable online players. At least, that seems to explain most of my time playing Halo. ↓ TranscriptAMANDA: Why do you quit as soon as someone starts beating you online? JIMMY: Because it infuriates ... Read More »

Call of Battlefield

There’s nothing wrong with how a preference in the game you play. In fact, a complete lack of preference for Call of Duty, Battlefield, or Halo would seem kind of odd. Almost like someone just didn’t care whatever they played. That being said, my nephew gets a bit worked up over which is “best” and how wrong players are of ... Read More »
