Interview With David Bateson, the Voice Behind ‘Hitman’

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]

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]

Nintendo had a monumental task to achieve with the Switch press events that took place last week.

The Danger of ‘Hype’ and Its Effect on Video Games

So 2017 is here now… 2016 has seemed like a bit of a disappointing year hasn’t it? First, it was a slew of celebrity deaths, then Brexit, then Trump but few will contend that the worst thing about 2016 was definitely the lack of quality to be found in some of the more hyped IP’s of the year (definitely a joke). This isn’t entirely unique to 2016 however, for as many standout titles as there ...[Read More]

Instead of looking to books to inspiration, I turn to video games. I’m inspired by the sweeping stories, diverse char...[Read More]
