My Thoughts on the Nintendo Switch Announcement

On January 13, 2017, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

We finally received more information about Nintendo’s latest console, the Switch. The name is rooted in the fact that you can switch from playing on your HDTV to playing as a portable. The console itself is a tablet. It includes a dock, and an elaborate control function where you have…

BlueGamer’s Game of the Year 2016

On December 30, 2016, Posted by , In Editorial, With 2 Comments

It has been a while. This year got a bit quiet, here on BG, but it’s only temporary. I started a new project that’s going to be some time in the making and hopefully I’ll have more news on that soon. If you follow me on instagram, you might have…

8-Bit Armies is Petroglyph doing Command & Conquer

On April 19, 2016, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

Westwood is back with Command & Conquer, as 8-bit Armies from Petroglyph. And this is why (how) it finally now works: Detailed polygonal RTSs don’t look as clear as they did when they were sprites. Modern graphics become much more detailed and rely on accurate scale. Because of this, it’s…

The Division is Empty Excellence

On March 22, 2016, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

The Division has great 3rd person, tactical, cover-based shooting mechanics. I think the cover and vault buttons need to be swapped, but I also think the sticky cover option is the best. They really messed up on the button-mapping, but whatever – the mechanics are there. The problem is, the…

Cross-Network Play – Will it Happen?

On March 17, 2016, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

While not the first, the Dreamcast really ushered in the idea of online play done easily on console. And it wasn’t to have an online platform of theirs, it was just to have it possible on console. Dreamcast online play could also work with PC players. Yes, that existed back…

The Division, Dragon’s Dogma, Tomb Raider

On February 1, 2016, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

I’ve had Dragon’s Dogma since release, but I’ve been meaning to speak on it. It ran horrible on consoles so I could only bear so much. But, on PC it is magnificent. I’m not an RPG guy and never have been, but this game is just so much fun. I…

I’m finally getting around to this… 2015 is in the past and I’ve played everything I could. Here are my favorite games in no order: Grey Goo – A call back to the days of Command & Conquer. It wasn’t quite there but haven’t played anything like this in a…

Best Games I Played in 2015 That Did Not Come out in 2015

On December 21, 2015, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

Usually the start of any year, through the summer, leaves quite the empty void to dig into one’s backlog. Here are my favorites from this year that are from previous years: Twilight Princess (GCN) – Playing the GameCube version, since it is the superior version, this became my favorite Zelda…

Battlefront vs Black Ops III vs Halo 5

On November 20, 2015, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

It just had to be done. This fall, more than any other fall, there are a number of huge online FPS titles that are being released around the same time. They are out, I’ve played them all – so what’s the final verdict? Battlefront Boy, is this one of the…

Where Microsoft Has Failed Halo

On November 17, 2015, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

So Halo 5 was a bit of a disappointment. But don’t just ask me, ask anyone else. At this point, Halo 5 should have sold better than it did (but it did fine). Sure, the multiplayer is fun. But aren’t they fun for a bit, then we move on? After…
