Q & A With ‘Edge of Nowhere’ Composer Michael Bross

With the recent release of Michael Bross’s Edge of Nowhere soundtrack we decided to get an inside look at what goes into scoring a video game and more specifically Michael’s process for scoring the hit Insomniac title, which www.vrheads.com just called, “One of most incredible Oculus Rift games you can buy today.”  How would you describe your musical style? My music traverses the serene to the hau...[Read More]

INTERVIEW: Composers Stephen Cox and Danny McIntyre Discuss Their “Farpoint” Score

The PlayStation VR (PSVR) made its debut in October of last year and reminded gaming insiders how limitless the industry can be.

The response to the game has been overwhelmingly good w...[Read More]

Nintendo Switch Early Impressions

The Nintendo Switch has been out for a little over a week, and I have had an ample amount of time to delve into Nintendo’s newest venture. While I have had a blast playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild, my very first impression of the console itself wasn’t overly positive.  This had nothing to do with how well the console looked or how it performed, but everything to do with ...[Read More]

FGE 2016 Game Of The Year Awards

People will look back at 2016 and continually make jokes about how bad it was for various reasons, but it was very good for gaming. There were plenty of fantastic releases across most platforms, the Wii U had a couple of highlights as it prepares to make way for the Switch, and the new VR platforms had impressive debuts.

Interview With David Bateson, the Voice Behind ‘Hitman’

David Bateson is The Mister 47. His voice, and eventually his likeness, are one with the genetically modified master hitman. The Hitman series began with Hitman Codename 47 in 2000 exclusively on PC. However, it was the sequel in 2002 that brought Mister 47 into prominence with gamers. Now, over 16 years later, Bateson is still with the iconic character in its newest installment. However, it is no...[Read More]

A Case for Videogame Companions

So I just recently finished The Last Guardian and it got me thinking, not because its good, because I don’t believe that it is particularly good, it made me think about what makes a good AI companion in a game. Across my ten-hour playtime with The Last Guardian I continually came back to the same line of thinking. I was convinced of the fact that Team Ico had made what is essentially the most real...[Read More]

Nintendo recently held a special event highlighting key details about their upcoming console, the Switch.

However, I decided to approach the event objectively in order to give my most unbiased opinion possible. The following are my impressions of the Nintendo ...[Read More]

My Bid For A New ‘Dead Space’

Dead Space, a game full of blood, gore, and horror. What’s not to love about it? You would be hardpressed to find any gamer who has negative things to say about the Dead Space franchise. Sure there is that old criticism about “Bro Space 3” and how the third installment was more of an action movie rather than a true survival horror game like the one’s we were used to. But even still the worth of th...[Read More]

The Pros and Cons of the Nintendo Switch, Based on What We Know So Far

Nintendo had a monumental task to achieve with the Switch press events that took place last week. After the failure of the Wii U, it had to show the world that its new console was designed by a reformed company that learned from past errors and keenly observed the competition in order to make a rebound in the hardware space. It’s difficult to tell right now if it succeeded, but here are my thought...[Read More]
