Retro Monday: “Destroy All Humans!”

Only managed to see one story… This week ended up being full of work related stuff. Some may know that I make videos for myself via my YouTube channel as well as videos and articles for the Torch. This just ended up having me spending pretty much all of this…

Retro Monday: “Alien Carnage”

Busy week and year… This week has been one of the most busiest weeks I’ve had in a while. Before the week even began there was MCM London, 3 days of games, cosplayers, (and to a lesser extent) movies, TV and comics. I had one day to recover then I…

Retro Monday – “Robot Wars: Metal Mayhem”

Slow week. Except for… You know… Only two major things happened this week. The first involves #GamerGate so I’m going to gloss over it swiftly with only the facts as not to offend the vocal. Anita Sarkeesian (yes her) was to do her usual talk at the Utah State University.…

Retro Monday – “The Simpsons: Road Rage”

Parity… Instead of writing a cold open about “Assassin’s Creed Unity” parity, have this Inside Gaming [Machinima] that talks about the topic beter then I can in 10 lines or less. <iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/gWR6IWpUmvg” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen> For me, I just want a good game.

Retro Monday – “Enter the Matrix”

Comment water test… With the now full closing down of PlayStation Home which was revealed this week, I can say that I think that the bubble of virtual world games/simulations/lives is now on the way out. Considering where I’m saying these things I feel like I should prepare a tirade…

Retro Monday – “The Crystal Maze” (DOS)

Slow but interesting news week… The elephant in the room is the lack of coverage of the Tokyo Game Show in… Tokyo. Well, as it happens so late in the year, right at the start of the fall release schedule, there is no news because its just yet more trailers.…

Retro Monday – “Singstar”

Title: “Singstar” Developer: SCE London Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Released: May 2004 “Singstar” was a game from a now by-gone age of party games. It was one of the first games that popularized the system of using a peripheral device to sucker people in and make proprietary tech you had…

Retro Monday – “HALO: Combat Evolved”

Slow week… This week as been a pretty slow and uneventful week as gaming things go so there isn’t really that much to say for the cold open. Most of the bigger things I’ve already covered but there is one thing I want to talk about, and that is “Playstation…
