100 Words or Less: Do I Need a PS Vita?

ps-vita-blue

As a PS Plus subscriber, doesn’t it make sense to own a PS Vita? I would get more free games. I’d gain access to a library of Vita-exclusive titles. Seems like an obvious choice, right? Maybe, but a non-Nintendo handheld? Experience has proven that to be a risky investment. You fooled me once with the PSP, Sony, and I’m not likely to forget it any time soon. Back touch? Stop putting touch screens on my gaming systems! The PS Vita’s hardware is amazing. But what does great hardware mean if you don’t have good software to back it up?

Do I need a PS Vita? I simply cannot decide.

The Seven Prettiest Puzzle Games

prettiest-puzzle-games

Puzzle games tend to be on the beautiful side. Smart developers must realize that the player will spend most of his or her time inspecting, studying and generally staring at their digital surroundings, so you better make it damn beautiful to look at. Whether it be surveying aseptic Aperture Science labs in Portal or navigating derelict spaceships in The Swapper, these video games transport you to ponderously pretty and preposterously puzzling places.  (There are so many astonishingly beautiful games out there so picking only seven was a quite a task!) Here are the seven prettiest puzzle games in my estimation.

100 Words or Less: Sniper Wolf Memories

Sniper-Wolf

After I finished Metal Gear Solid V, I replayed Metal Gear Solid 1 through 4. With each successive entry, comes a massive leap in graphics, gameplay and stealth action. But there’s something about Metal Gear Solid 1 that will always make it my very favorite. I can’t explain it logically. It’s a combination of things, but what stands out to me as the singular reason? That Sniper Wolf scene… Nothing beats it. It’s the most melodramatic gaming scene of all time. It’s frothy yet substantive. Nothing compares to it. The Sniper Wolf death scene is the Sniper Wolf death scene. There’s nothing else like it.

100 Words or Less: Virtual Becoming Reality

virtual-reality

I have been a bit skeptical of VR in the past. I’ve tried to contain my excitement over Oculus Rift and Sony VR for fear of disappointment. In my mind the technology was too ambitious to get my hopes up. Over the years I’ve seen the Oculus Rift dev kit videos on YouTube, read the articles praising it. I’ve even seen the technology improve over a few short years, and witnessed other technologies take VR further, technologies like Virtuix Omni. As time has worn on,  I can no longer deny the possibility of virtual reality becoming, well — a reality.

Mobile Game Review: Lifeline

lifeline-game

Mobile games seldom interest me. I usually refuse to spend any real money on app purchases. I’m on a restricted diet of free microtransaction-less games. However, there are exceptions. When I came across Three Minute Game‘s Lifeline, I was immediately intrigued. Without hesitation, I purchased it. Did I regret shelling out cash for a text adventure with a small twist? Read on to find out!

The Witcher 3 Is Getting Even Better (With Patches)

the-witcher-3-ciri

I have very few qualms, concerns or complaints with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. I haven’t touched many other PS4 games since I’ve started it, and I don’t believe that will change until I’ve completed the game. CD Projekt Red’s third installment in their glorious grey hair simulator series (a.k.a. The Witcher) is just plain addictive! But that’s not to say I haven’t had my share of frustrations.

I mean, no game is perfect (excluding Half-Life 2, of course). There have been times when I’ve been unable to contain my anger at Geralt for continuously igniting and snuffing out candles near treasure chests. There have been other times when I wished the text on screen was a smidge less incredibly tiny. But the aforementioned complaints seemed too miniscule, too unimportant to lodge formally (or informally, for that matter). But, lo and behold, CD Projekt Red is fixing all these tiny annoyances with an upcoming patch. Read on for more info!
