Some games that are in development never see the light of day. Sometimes, if they game takes too long to develop, the developer will drop the game. Most games must adhere to strict schedules while in development. When these schedules are not kept, game developers must make important decisions. They can choose to either to keep developing the title, or cut their losses and halt development indefinitely.
Many highly-anticipated games were canceled as they were in development. StarCraft Ghost was going to be a third-person stealth action (more…)

Anyone who thought that killing necromorphs with a pal would somehow diminish the horror of the sci-fi survival horror franchise will be pleasantly surprised. I get my TV through www.cable.tv/cable-companies/ and I’ve seen all the game channels covering the game.
If anything, having a partner along for the ride will make it even scarier.
To explain how this is possible, we need to go over a couple basic things about the franchise. Dead Space takes place in the future where a mysterious religion called Unitology (sound familiar?) seems to be controlling everything. This religion reveres an alien artifact called “the Marker” which apparently has the ability to drive people insane, to death and eventually reanimation as alien monstrosities called necromorphs.
In Dead Space 2, Isaac Clarke (the protagonist in all three major games thus far) was driven to hallucinations and visions thanks to the Marker exposure. He, however, fought back and, for all intents and purposes, seems cured.
Dead Space 3 features a new character named Carver who is going through the same kind of mental nightmare as Isaac. The horror? Imagine playing with another player. They are Carver and you depend on them to watch your back. Suddenly, they try to shoot you and you have to protect yourself while they ride out some hallucination caused by the Marker.
In Dead Space 3, the two players might be in the same room, but the psychosis caused by the Marker can make both players see very different things and THAT is where the fear and tension come into play.

The 100% completion achievement or trophy is usually difficult to accomplish. Some, in fact, might even consider it impossible. Fortunately, one can accomplish this goal no matter his or her skill level. The issue, as it is with so many gaming rewards, is almost always time.
If you think about the harder 100% completion runs, you should be able to pick out a few of the elements that are more or less the same. First and foremost, the (more…)

Role playing games, or RPGs for short, are games that are driven by story and plot. There are dozens of games out there, from Dungeons and Dragons and the World of Darkness to Shadowrun and Pathfinder. And those are just the paper and pencil RPGs, to say nothing of the computer games like Diablo III. However, the keys to be great at role playing games are actually pretty simple.
First, have a very definite concept (more…)

It is a number of pretty inconvenient things when announcing to the online world that I am a girl while playing a video game. Some find it hard to believe and just say I am a pre pubescent boy. Others must not have seen a real girl in months besides their own mother as they immediately try to ask me out on a date. These types of conversations tend to be the worst, for when I let slip my location and they live near me then the badgering and constant questions commence.The full explanation can (more…)

As a media format, video games are now the biggest and most profitable. Even movies have fallen behind in profitability. Yet you never see anyone defending their lifestyle as a movie-goer. People simply go to movies. While many movies develop a cult following, you don’t ever hear of someone having to explain why they watch movies. This isn’t so for adults that play video games.
The stereotypical “gamer” is now thought of by mainstream society as man or woman-child that is immersed in the culture of children, and that’s where every gamer should take comfort. (more…)

The world of video gaming is large and often confusing for people who do not have a particularly good knowledge of what is popular, what has been popular, and what is going to be popular. This is why it is always easy and fun to find out which games were more popular during certain times in the past. In the 1990s there were so many games that came out that at times it has been hard to choose the best. Here are 10 of the ones that have definitely made the top 10 best list.
1. Diablo was a (more…)
