Blue Shellshock

Mario Kart 8' races to the Wii U

'Mario Kart 8' is everything you'd expect out of a sequel: a base good game with features layered on top of it to make it fresh. Honestly, if you expected anything less than quality out of Nintendo's perennial mascot racer, I'd just have to have you pass in your gamer card right now. But are there enough differences from previous entries in the 'Mario Kart' series to warrant a purchase? Here's my nitty-gritty.

Sanctuary - 'Diablo III' vs. stress

The Devil Made Me Do It

It's the strangest thing. It really did just show up one day, perhaps attempting to mimic the supernatural qualities of its namesake. It was about two or three weeks before my wife and I were wed when a mysterious package showed up with gifts for the two of us. Inside this bright and happy package, frilly with tissue paper and string, lay the Lord of Darkness, slumbering in his brand-new box (it may sound silly to get excited over a box, but seriously, Blizzard knows how to box stuff). I hadn't even asked for it, but 'Diablo III' showed up at my door.

Beta notes: Wildstar'

Impressions from Nexus

It's been a very long search, but I've finally think I've found a 'World of Warcraft' successor in the form of 'Wildstar.' I finally finished up my time in the open beta yesterday, and I came away quite impressed. Here's a few notes from my time on Nexus:

It's A Not-So-Small World

5 fantastic open-world games

I'm a sucker for three things in particular in gaming: Metroidvanias, action RPGs and open-world games. Open-world games have a sense of lawlessness and a personality brought on more by how the player interacts with the world around them rather than the other way around. Driven by my desire to completely dissect a game and see what makes it tick, I find that the opportunities afforded by miles of map to explore makes open-world games a proper canvas for my adventures. Here's a few of my favorites:

Smashingly Good News!

Nintendo outlines the fourth Smash Bros.'

On April 8, Nintendo hosted one of their online news sessions (known as Directs) for the brandiest-newest 'Smash Bros.' game coming out. Simply known as 'Super Smash Bros. for Wii-U/3DS,' most of the information about the game had been gleaned from daily screenshots and sparse video footage from the developer, but with this Direct, Nintendo opened the floodgates and gave us a whopping 39 minutes of info. Here are some of the bullet points:

Remembering Half-Life 2

A look back at the seminal classic

I still remember the day that the 'Half-Life 2' demo came out. I was ecstatic about the possibility of seeing the sequel to Valve's original classic, and in my haste, I didn't exactly check the specs of my parents' computer. I got the demo downloaded, and I could almost feel the gravity gun in my hands as it began to load.

'Titanfall' brings ideas but not depth

Truth be told, I wasn't expecting the second coming of 'Halo 2' (or 'Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare,' for that matter). However, there is a certain expectation of the team that reinvigorated the CoD franchise single-handedly and then vanished into the dark recesses of a new studio to try to reinvent the first-person shooter genre once again.

Three horror games to avoid

I am a gigantic chicken. It's a well-documented fact that I'm squeamish around anything that can remotely come close to horror. However, I do have a tendency to at least attempt to play horror games. I'm not sure if it's because I'm in control of the action or if I just have a virtual death wish, but I actually do enjoy playing scary games despite my long-standing disposition on terrifying entertainment.
