Splitkick’s 2012 Game of the Year Picks

Splitkick LogoIt’s the end of 2012 and that means two things: the holiday season is in full swing, and every gaming outlet is pumping out Game of the Year awards and nominations. I have recently been given the fantastic opportunity to work for Splitkick as one of their podcast co-hosts. I was asked by the staff as well to contribute my choices for 2012’s Game of the Year. This year was actually the first time I selected my Game of the Year, and it was actually a pretty tough choice!

Gaming News: 12/15/12

Machinima LogoYou might be thinking, “Jsick, it’s the end of the year, surely the only news to report on is Game of the Year stories from around the internet?” Well faithful reader, you’d be disappointed to know that I am not reporting anything this week on GotY shenanigans. Not yet at least.

There was actually a handful of newsworthy stories this week, some good, some bad.

Gaming News: 11/3/12

Another exciting week in gaming news, complete with controversy, new games, and even some game save-deleteing bugs! Which are arguably the best kind of bugs (stupid wasps…)

I highlight the integrity of games journalists as the fallout and backlash from one article has taken a small toll on the world of games. And what would it be without some Borderlands 2 news? A shabby week, that’s what!

Oh, and something about George Lucas and Disney? I don’t know if you heard about that either… Read the rest of this entry »

Gaming News Snippets: 10/6/12

If you weren’t already sold on Assassin’s Creed III, perhaps some DLC involving a corrupt George Washington will sway your perceptions.

Or maybe if you’re more of a casual gamer, the possibility of a Star Wars themed Angry Birds game will whet your appetite.

No? Nothing? Well heck, then I don’t know what will please you!

Now Playing: Borderlands 2

Can you believe it’s been three years since the original Borderlands surprised us all with its addictive, loot-driven kill-fests? Three years since we opened the Vault, killed our first Badass Psycho, picked up our first corrosive pistol. For me at least the time doesn’t seem so long ago because I’ve been playing Borderlands and its DLC periodically ever since 2009. And how we’re here in 2012, with Borderlands 2 and all its glory. I’ve been playing daily since the game came out last week, and here’s what you need to know about the game so far.

Sunday Roundup: 9/23/12

A short list of games but games that are amazing nonetheless. I have been busy this week and am currently still out of town on a vacation of sorts, but that didn’t stop me from picking up two new games this week. I need to clarify what “new” means though: One game is new in every sense of the word: it came out this week, I bought it, and it was wrapped in that plastic that is so satisfying to tear open. The other game, while also new in that it came out this week, is actually a collection of older titles and some other swag (if the picture hasn’t given it away yet). Read the rest of this entry »
