"I'm your video game memory unit. The one you have your 80-hour Final Fantasy save on. But your little sister just rented Barbie's Fashion Show for the weekend, and she's just unlocked the second venue. System says memory's full, and she can't read, so she's hitting buttons. Just like that one monkey in a million that ends up typing a Shakespearian play [ed note: that's not quite how the saying goes], she hits the right combination of buttons. Next thing you know, that "format memory" option you thought would never be used gets to test itself out on your precious gaming history. What will YOU do when mayhem strikes?"
Singularity is Activision's 2010 sleeper hit. Although the game only sold 400,000 copies it has left its mark on gaming. From the story to the interesting multiplayer and the fantastic gameplay, Singularity is one of those games every gamer should at least try.
With the next generation of consoles upon us, fanboyism is running rampant. Who's defending the Wii U and it's inferior tech until Nintendo's dying breath? Who's supporting Microsoft despite the 180s and wishing the old ways were still happening with the Xbox One? Who is standing by the PS4 despite....well....the light bar on the controller always having to be on?
The Wii was the most popular console of the last generation. The 100+ million consoles sold are proof. Nintendo must have done something right with the console. Was it the catchy marketing? The innovation? The games? GoozerNation takes a look at all of this and speculates on everything that is the Wii.
Video game makers love sequels. After all, more of the same for us usually means more of the same (cash) for them. A good cliffhanger creates a need for a compelling and satisfying sequel. This list summarizes the worst cliffhangers I personally have had to endure. These aren't your run-of-the-mill cliffhangers people complain about, such as Halo 2's hackneyed "I'm finishing this fight" comment, moreso excellent games that make you think, "Wow. They left it THERE?" and may even have the gall to not give you anything more when the next game in the series comes out!
FAIR WARNING: Spoilers ahead!
Welcome to another installment of Backlog Gamer. Here I will be discussing a title that has sucked an easy 40+ hours of my spaced out freetime, whether it was a quick run before work or a few before bed. FTL is a 2D rogue-like adventure that will steal your focus anywhere from 5 to 45 minutes, depending on how long you survive.
