My Top 10 Games of 2017.  What are yours? My Top 10 Games of 2017.  What are yours?

Meant to do this over a week ago, but holidays, work and the flu (still recovering) combined to slow me down. My excuse is now that 2017 is well over, and everyone has some breathing room where late in the year games have lost their release glow. Of those games, what 10 were your favorite experiences this year, and…

So What's Your Top 10 Games of 2015? So What's Your Top 10 Games of 2015?

So the year is drawing to a close, and before everyone goes off to Christmas I wanted to know what were your favorite titles this year?

Tales of Zestiria Weird PC Pre-Order Tales of Zestiria Weird PC Pre-Order

So I was browsing around Steam today, and noticed Tales of Zestiria popped up. I was aware of the game getting ported to PC, which seems to be happening more frequently with JRPGs. I’m pretty happy with seeing more of Japan on my platform of preference, especially given their games were one of, if not the biggest…

Not Enough E3 Talk About Shadow Warrior 2 Not Enough E3 Talk About Shadow Warrior 2

Over the last couple of days in my spare time, I’ve been looking through all the games that were at E3, like I’m sure plenty of other people have. Lots of info around the specific conferences, and their big reveals. However, on the outskirts of those events some other games I feel have gone unnoticed, including even…

Grey Goo - An RTS Worth Your Attention Grey Goo - An RTS Worth Your Attention

Kind of a chilling CG trailer for a game that I don't think has gotten nearly enough attention, despite coming out on the 23rd of this month.

TAY's Top 10 Games of 2014 TAY's Top 10 Games of 2014

So it's that time of year again. When December is gonna end soon, and we look back on what were are favorite game experiences, echoing amazing moments or disagreeing with someone's opinion. I'm gonna stick with the top 10 format, and list a few notables that were close, but anyone else feel free to extend past that.…

So Steam Changed ALOT Just Now Blip! So Steam Changed ALOT Just Now Blip!

Yep, that's the new storefront you should be seeing if you log on to Steam now.

Microsoft to Stream Xbox 360/One Games to PC Browsers?! Microsoft to Stream Xbox 360/One Games to PC Browsers?!

After a normal day of browsing the internet, I came across this interesting article that hints Microsoft isn't going to let Valve, Nvidia, or their main competition Sony, have all the fun with game streaming.

Happy 11th Birthday Steam! Happy 11th Birthday Steam!

Yep, it's literally been that long since Valve first started their system way back in 2003 on September 12. Kinda hard to believe it's been that long since the service started with initial use for Counter Strike and Half Life 2.

Another Destiny Clan Option

My posts have been disappearing, or stuck in some weird 'maybe my internet is broken today' limbo, but I will give this another shot, and hope for the best.

Tomb Raider - Timed Exclusive Cherry-Picking Tomb Raider - Timed Exclusive Cherry-Picking

So I woke up later this evening, and missed the live onslaught that was Tomb Raider getting announced as a timed exclusive for the Xbox One. I expected some groans, but instead I saw lots of anger, pissed off at the concept of what is timed exclusivity, or just exclusivity in general.

New Steam Controller Could Have Thumbstick? New Steam Controller Could Have Thumbstick?

There has been some speculation that the Steam controller is undergoing another change in its new iteration, this time coming with a new thumbstick.

HighLANder - World Record High Elevation LAN Party HighLANder - World Record High Elevation LAN Party

Just felt like sharing this bit of news that I came across being a semi-regular watcher of Tek Syndicate. Quite recently, some of the good chums from Tek Syndicate, Linus Tech Tips and Newegg, even including some people from Asus, Corsair, and Austin Evans as well (sorry if I left anyone else out).

Looks like The Division Could be Getting a Downgrade... Looks like The Division Could be Getting a Downgrade...

So I was browsing around the internet yesterday, only to discover this little gem.

Transistor: The TAY Review Transistor: The TAY Review

After the unexpected hit that Bastion became back in 2011, there has been a good deal of buzz surrounding their newest outing, which made a stylish splash at Sony's E3 last year. Proudly contrasting other games shown, which were coated in realism and Hollywood orchestral bombast. Transistor instead oozed vibrant,…

Is Europe the Epicenter of Next-Gen Graphical Fidelity? Is Europe the Epicenter of Next-Gen Graphical Fidelity?

I found myself asking this very question a few days ago, when a friend brought to my attention a few GDC videos of the Witcher 3. They displayed a lot of the technical details that have gone into their art pipeline, how they handled producing huge pieces of land, all strewn with incredible texture resolution,…

Why I’m Bored with Adventure and Art Games Why I’m Bored with Adventure and Art Games

I like to think in the world of games, that I'm pretty open to most experiences, and at the very least am interested in a lot of them. Even the games I do dislike aren't because of a failing I can pinpoint down to a whole genre, but more the particular execution of the given title. I thought for a while that I'd…

Diablo 3 Skill Progression: Experimentation vs. Investment Diablo 3 Skill Progression: Experimentation vs. Investment

When Diablo 3 released, there were a lot of changes to the overall formula that were controversial, and some even quite hated. I thought considering the expansion is going to hit, I'd like to hit on one area Diablo 3 changed radically, was considered controversial by many, and hasn't/won't be going anywhere.: skill…

Diablo 3 - The Power of Patching Diablo 3 - The Power of Patching

When Diablo 3 released it was an infamous game, one that was loved widely by critics, yet despised for multiple reasons: late game imbalance (which those critics likely didn't see), the auction house diluting loot gain, not enough content to keep grinding, and just the issues with online-only. So much so that…

Titanfall: An Argument for Multiplayer-Only Titanfall: An Argument for Multiplayer-Only

If you're thinking to yourself, is this guy going to argue against single-player games? Immediately dismiss the thought, because that isn't the case, and I love single-player games. What I am going to be talking about is something I've noticed in my multiplayer habits, and where I see the format for most multiplayer…
