This Month In Crowdfunding - January 2014 [Part 2]

Earlier this month I took a look at some of the more interesting titles that were in the middle of their crowdfunding campaigns. I highlighted a few of these games in hopes that I could bring them a little bit more attention, pushing them over their initial goals and up through their stretch goals.

Now I’d like to highlight some games that have either recently or long since finished their runs on Kickstarter; starting off with a quick look at the game that started off my crowdfunding addiction, Broken Age.

 

Finding Victory In Video Games

In the middle of a long brick-walled office, Samarth Chandola sits behind a desk. A guitar lays on top, next to a picture – the frame reads “In Loving Memory.” It's a picture of himself.

Navigating Nostalgia - Persona 3 Portable

Nostalgia is a funny thing. It warps our memories, clouds our judgments, and alters our perceptions. Nowhere does nostalgia hit many of us harder than with classic games. When we think back to the games we played as a child, we often see them with crisp graphics, tight controls, and unsurpassed soundtracks, when in reality they were blurry, incoherent messes with clumsy controls. Though we remember these games as being the epitome of fun, our fun was just the result of much lower standards.

This Month In Crowdfunding - January 2014 [Part 1]

It’s still too early to say if crowdfunding will be a major and lasting influence on the gaming industry. We have yet to see just how many of these games are actually going to be completed, and just what affect unfulfilled promises will have on backer confidence. For the moment however, crowdfunding is a pretty major force in the indie game scene.

PlayStation Classics Revisited: Omega Boost

The era of the first PlayStation is still one that’s looked back on as one of the best moments in the history of the video game industry.  Being the new kid on the block and having been burned by Nintendo in the early 1990s, Sony came onto the scene and essentially stole the show with their PlayStation console which went on to be the de facto system for gamers until Sony’s PlayStation successor was released in 2000.  For me the release of the PS1 was a big deal as it marked the first time my parents allowed me to own a video game console, which as many of you know led me down the

The Potential Blunder Moments Of E3 2011

Every year gamers look forward to one specific thing due to the near endless joy that it offers. No, I’m not referring to the ever so crowded but amazing Winter release schedule that this year will bring us games such as Uncharted 3 and Modern Warfare 3.  I’m instead referring to E3 and the near infinite amount of amazement it offers.

Gotta Catch’em All: Wheeling and Dealing

It is one of the greatest challenges in the gaming world, to catch all 649 Pokemon ever released. I can say I have obtained under a third or 209.

The Future Of Mortal Kombat DLC: Who Should Be Included Next?

We’ve been graced with something that rarely happens: a sequel that is totally amazing in almost every possible way.  I’m of course referring to the new installment of Mortal Kombat which offers some of the best fighting and most enjoyable fighting I’ve ever experienced in a game. One of the big reasons that the new Mortal Kombat game is such a hit in my eyes is because the game is packed with content like treasure trove that is the Krpyt, a fan pleasing Story Mode and bonus goodies like the addicting but sometimes brutal Challenge Tower.
