5 Overrated “Underrated” Video Games

    Some douche threw together this ‘click-bait’ piece just to get a free game, you must be thinking. That’s not entirely true. While I’m bound to piss a fanboy or two off, I’m actually merely presenting a summary of opinions and a result of some debate among our “staff writers” (other term for people who keep hanging around). That is one reason why […]

5 Big Reasons To Love Nintendo

 Oddcat for AlienLion.com     Note, fanboys, that we have featured an article titled ‘6 Evil Facts About Nintendo‘, which has already been read by thousands of people. It also just so happens that the author of this piece is not their biggest fan, but it’s time to give respect where respect is due. Let’s be honest […]

6 Cases of Terrible Fashion in Games

In truth, our fashion sense is eternally dictated by the laundry situation, so you know, we’re no Vogue, but we do have eyes and there often comes a point in fashion when that makes all the difference: Lucky for us, when it comes to video games, the same person who designs characters’ dresses also designs the same game’s chainsaw bloodhammers, so […]

The Mosts of 2014 in Gaming

  How’s about we look back at the year 2014 in gaming? Everyone else is doing it. Now, I haven’t played every game to come out last year so I can’t tell you what truly the best game of the year was (what does that even mean with games, as different as they all are?) but I […]

Wasteland 2 – 100 Hours Later

Wasteland 2 was once the most anticipated Kickstarter game on AlienLion.com, remember? Here’s the review, by Allen:     I offered to review Wasteland 2 around release, back when it was still a useful thing to do, but I ran into a problem. How do you criticize something that you want so badly to succeed? It’s not every […]

Valve Deserves The Hate

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

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 […]

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

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

  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 […]
