Two Times the Monday I’ve mentioned this before, but this week we got off in the middle of it for Veterans Day. While I completely support this holiday, I question the good of cutting a week down the middle. What it basically created for me at least was a whole lot of time I seemed to be occupying space in a chair but not getting much accomplished… because individuals smarter than me ended up taking either the entire front half of the week off… or the entire back half of the week off. Those people apparently did not coordinate well, which meant there was a skeleton crew on board and few of the people you actually needed to talk about this item or that available and ready to discuss. My hope is this coming week we can make up ground for all of the perceived lost time from this fractured week. On the gaming front though… this was a week entirely about Fallout 4. However while prepping the AggroChat episode I watched another … [Read more...] about Week In Gaming 11/15/2015

Great civilizations rise and fall. Nothing made by man lasts forever. Such is the way of things. The same is true of successful video game studios. Success is a double-edged sword. Ask any restauranteur that has attained the highly coveted 3-star Michelin rating about how hard it is dealing with the unrelenting pressure to keep those precious stars. But how do we define success? In the world of video games, executives and shareholders measure success in earnings and stock prices. Others measure success in obtaining high ratings from critics. And some even dare to measure success by the appreciation of their fans. Finally, there is the artist who creates a work of art for himself. Serious video game enthusiasts care about one thing: that the video game they play is the very best it can be. Blizzard Entertainment was once such a company that measured success by the loyalty of their fans, their own love of games and their devotion to excellence and artistic integrity. Back in those days … [Read more...] about 5 Mistakes Blizzard is Making that Distracts them From Making Great PC Games
Grey Misty Way It is 6 am on the morning of Pax and here I sit in my hotel room dressed and ready for the con and trying to knock out my routine early morning blog post. Right now my plan is to try and be at the convention center around 9 am because I assume at least on the first day there will be lines to get in. This also gives me time to iron out where I will park and such, and to find some serious caffeine on the way there. The hotel I am staying in offers a free hot breakfast each morning, so I am most definitely going to partake of that. Yesterday was a pretty trippy day as far as travel days go. We left the house around 7 am and ended up pulling into our hotel shortly after 8 pm. So while the actual drive time was only around 8 hours of that… we meandered our way, had dinner with friends and wound up here about thirteen hours after we began our journey. As far as travel days go yesterday was a dreary one. From the moment we left … [Read more...] about Twas Morning of Pax South
[Source: Pixabay] Even just one year ago, if you’d told me that we’d be playing console games on our smartphones and tablets, I wouldn’t have believed you. Or, if I had, I would have assumed it to be some sort of streaming service. But, here we are, playing Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on devices small enough to fit into our pockets, whilst consoles like Nintendo’s wildly popular portable Switch console become the fastest selling console in US history. It’s a fundamental shift for a business which has always been home-hardware first, with manufacturers putting their best efforts into home consoles and considering mobile hardware second. I mean, Microsoft has never released a portable console, leaving Nintendo to absolutely dominate the space for decades with only a little competition from Sony. But what got us to a point of gaming going mobile at an increasingly rapid rate? Well, there are two major forces: [Source: Pixabay] … [Read more...] about What Created Today’s Mobile Gaming Revolution?
