5more

  It’s that time of the year again. Actually, it’s way past that time but there is a point to it. Read on for a slightly different E3 review from MaxImaz:     So, E3 2014 has come and gone and it was a weird one. Everyone, including Microsoft (!), actually did what they had […]

Our Mortal Kombat X Trailer Impressions and Game Wish List

alimage

The debut trailer for Mortal Kombat X is here, and more details are probably to follow in just a matter of days, at this year’s E3. Sure, we could wait and offer our impressions after the fact, but we feel that it would be interesting to provide our expectations and wishes based on the initial […]

Valve Deserves The Hate

HL3

This is a quick one-off opinion piece by Mikee, who has contributed to the old Alien Lion Blog. Stand by for his standalone blog very soon.      It’s almost that time again and I’m not talking about the World Cup, but you didn’t even think I was, did you, nerd? Yes, E3 is just […]

What The Game ‘Journey’ Is Really About

al

This is a rather unusual piece by our returning guest writer, noBanana. We have no definite opinion here but the whole this is too bizarre not to feature!    Weird games have a weird effect on people. Normally, gamers can’t put together an Internet sentence without emanating some serious psycho vibes but games like Journey […]

As you may know, we like to keep up with some potentially awesome new games that may be a little off the general radar. This usually means Kickstarter, but today, we are happy to share some news, in form of actual in-game screenshots, from Deathfire: Ruins of Nethermore, an independent first-person RPG, helmed by Guideo Henkel.   […]

4 Reasons Why We Don’t Need Anymore Consoles

  It’s not like you need more reasons to love the 50′s, but that’s when man invented both video games and lasers. The decade is basically the guitar solo of human existence but I digress. Ever since gaming appeared, we have been trying to use whatever available technology to make it more awesome, from vector […]

6 Evil Facts About Nintendo

beatoff

In all the recent outgushing of gaming news, Nintendo has remained as relevant as a pair of testicles on one of those Justin-Bieber-looking kids on Instagram. You couldn’t even tell they had a relatively new console out, which is quite crazy. I mean, it’s the freaking Nintendo! The name alone is synonymous with gaming. Everyone knows […]

5 Points In Support of Used Games

gamz

  This piece is a response, of sorts, to this video by The Cynical Brit (as if there is any other kind, right?). The Cliff Bleszinski linked to it in this blog post, as a self-explanatory, factual elaboration on the evils of used games, by simply saying: “Watch this video, and then come back.” We did watch […]

6 Pieces of Suspiciously Familiar Video Game Music

megs

    Video game music is its’ own genre, wouldn’t you say? It’s always had a rather unique sound and mood, usually only fit for video games (as awesome as it is, you rarely see anyone moshing to Sonic 2 soundtrack, for example). Even outside of the NES/Genesis era, there is just something about the […]

E3 2013 Conferences. Microsoft vs Sony

E3

We’ve all waited for exactly a year and survived through a freaking apocalypse to get here, the end of June 10th, 2013. Arguably, the part of E3 we all give a crap about the most (let’s be honest) is over and there it’s time to try and make sense of it all. Well, not it […]
