Survival Horror: Then and Now

Posted on May 11th, 2016 by:

The term survival horror was first coined for the 1996 Japanese release of Resident Evil. The first Resident Evil was innovative for several reasons; Although the voice acting in that game is cringeworthy and downright comical today, it was still one of the first games to have such a plot driven narrative with voice actors […]

Posted on April 18th, 2016 by:

I first heard about Undertale at the independent game developer’s choice awards at the Game Developer’s Conference in San Fransisco. Undertale was nominated for pretty much every category they had available. I was completely unaware of the game before then, but the love people had for this game was palpable.

The Shifting Perceptions on Video Games

Posted on April 11th, 2016 by:

Video games have been the center of a few long standing debates. Ever since the 1990’s there has been much discussion about the positive, and mainly the negative effects of video games.

Bioshock Infinite

Posted on March 10th, 2016 by:

Bioshock Infinite is the third installment in the Bioshock franchise. Being the successful follow up to the poorly received Bioshock 2, Bioshock Infinite completely shattered my brain by the end of it (in a great way). The ending of Bioshock was one of the most shocking and thought provoking ending to a game that I […]

Resident Evil 4

Posted on March 10th, 2016 by:
