The gaming industry thrives primarily by bringing us new franchises and gameplay experiences every year.

The 7 Hottest Male Video Game Characters

Gamers often talk about babes like Lara Croft and Bayonetta, but we often fail to recognize the hottest male video game characters within the industry.

Video Shows Why You Shouldn’t Be Out at Night in Los Santos

GTA never ceases to make gamers fall for it, hook, line, and sinker. And why not? With the game play, graphics, and all the stuff that you can do which you can’t do in real life… The game has gone such a long way from its first release almost two decades ago (you’re going down […]

Revive Your Game Boy Classic With hdmyboy

If you had a Game Boy Classic back in the late 80s or early 90s, it is likely that you will never feel the same way about any other gaming device. It’s not that the modern consoles and portable gaming devices today aren’t way, way better. It’s just that the Game Boy Classic evokes a […]

Why Free-to-Play Game Platforms Work for Developers

The free-to-play platforms have gained a significant amount of popularity among the gaming community.

For instance, many first-person-shooter games are available on Steam. Using real cash, you can get […]

Tetris with Pillows is Oddly Satisfying

Everyone knows tetris, that block stacking game that gets increasingly harder until you inevitably fail. There are tetris Halloween costumes, tetris themed parties, tetris apparel, and a whole string of other tetris-related things.

Punk Archaeologists Dig Out a Ton of 80s Video Games

Punk’s not dead! At least to these archaeologists who are part of a relatively recent movement called “punk archaeology”.

Concept Video Game Cat Scratchers for Cat Ladies

…and gentlemen, too. Because we’re for equality like that. For people with a cat (or cats) at home, you know you score points with your overlord(s) if you buy them awesome cat scratchers and give them catnip now and then.

Still, there is a niche for PC […]

Free Games That Are Keeping People From Living in the Real World

Not that I am against the whole thing – iOS games, people not living in the real world, calculating the time it will take to train x number of soldiers so they’re ready when you wake up, and so on. It’s just that I suddenly, just recently (which is weird) realized that there are some […]
