Idea Incubator: Why Not Make a Fallout RTS?

Idea Incubator: Why Not Make a Fallout RTS?

“Idea Incubator” is our new column focused on game and mod design ideas. Unlike reviews that discuss a given game as a product of economic product, the intent of these articles is to delve into the mechanics of the games in question, suggesting improvements and feedback as avid fans and players. Of course, we might also pitch ideas for new mods since we don’t really know where to begin ourselves (though that’s something we’re also looking to learn more about and report back – but that’s for another day).Read more...

Top 10 Fallout 3 Quotes

Top 10 Fallout 3 Quotes

So I’m a Fallout fanboy. What of it? Like any warm-blooded American, I like games with an awesome story, ridiculous amounts of gore, and sassy characters. Throw in a nuclear Armageddon and retro-futuristic elements and I’m sold. The biggest aspect that seals the deal for me on this title, however, are the quotes. Insightful, dark, and, at times, humorous and quirky, it’s the people and their sayings that make me almost wish to live in a world as vast and desolate as the Capital Wasteland.… Read more...

What’s Metzge Playing – September 2017

What’s Metzge Playing – September 2017

Another month (or two now, I guess) has come and gone. Another handful of weeks filled with gaming and whimsy. Well… to be honest… there hasn’t been much of either. Still, I’ve been playing some quality games in the spare time that I do have.

And yes… I know… I gone goofed and haven’t had a “What’s Metzge Playing” segment for a while but in fairness, I was in the midst of moving and so between that and working, I didn’t have much time to game, let alone write about how little gaming I was doing.… Read more...

Top 10 Dishonored 2 Quotes

Top 10 Dishonored 2 Quotes

It’s been almost a year since Dishonored 2 came forth from the shadows. Given that there’s only a month left or so before the mini standalone expansion Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, I’ve been doing my best to catch up on the latest goings on of Dunwall’s politics. As the hound for great video game lore that I am — and Bethesda sure has a ton of it between The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series, let alone their other IPs — I was surprised to find there wasn’t many decent Dishonored 2 quotes lingering on the web.… Read more...

What’s Metzge Playing – June 2017

So it’s been a while since the last “What’s Metzge Playing” segment. Since June’s already half over, I figured now’s as good a time as any to let you all know what games have been gripping my attention like a pitbull with a new chew toy. Now that I have a little bit more time on my hands, naturally that’s going to go right into gaming.… Read more...

What is Divergent Game Design?

What is Divergent Game Design?

2016 seems to be the year of remakes and remasters. From old movies made new to spiritual successor video games that throwback to a bygone age, with all the new advances in technology over the past few decades, you can hardly blame media producers for wanting to revisit old concepts and see what they’d be like if they were made in the modern era.… Read more...

5 Hearts of Iron IV National Focus Mods to Try Out

5 Hearts of Iron IV National Focus Mods to Try Out

If you haven’t gotten the chance to try Hearts of Iron IV out yet, I suggest you fix that. As a huge fan of World War II history and the strategy genre, I can’t get enough of games like these. Smelling strongly of Axis & Allies — the family-friendly Hasbro game pitting five friends in total war as Germany, America, the United Kingdom, Japan, and the USSR — HOI4 had me swoonin’ from the get-go.… Read more...

6 Reasons Why I Hate Video Game Reviews

6 Reasons Why I Hate Video Game Reviews

This may come as a surprise, but I hate video game reviews. I’m not a fan of reading them. I definitely don’t like writing them. If every major video game website, blog, and YouTube page took down their reviews, I wouldn’t even notice. I really… friggen… hate them. “But Tony, don’t you call yourself a game journalist?… Read more...

5 Ways to Save Money as a PC Gamer

5 Ways to Save Money as a PC Gamer

Can you remember the last time you bought a physical copy of a PC game? Personally, I can’t, though the latest of the only two physical games I have in my possession is dated 2010. With the likes of Steam, GOG, Origin, and a bunch of other digital retailers, buying games from all eras has become easier than ever.… Read more...

From the Editor: Reviewing How We Review

In the wake of #GamerGate, I was honestly kind of torn. I had to think long and hard about whether or not I felt like I was contributing something worthwhile to the journalism side of the video game industry–and by worthwhile, I mean valuable. With a lot of the ethical questions arising within the industry as DLC, Early Access, and day-after-launch patches become more and more commonplace, upon reflection I felt that the way we talk about games might have to change.… Read more...

Spotlight: Meet the Suikoden Revival Movement

If it’s one group of people on this earth that understand the need to accomplish quests, it’s gamers. And there’s no other group I can think of readily with such tenacity as gamers riled up about something they want. Such is the case with the Suikoden Revival Movement, a collection of over 21,000 fans who want to see Suikoden brought back to its former glory, having been dissatisfied with the series’ current direction.… Read more...
