Why graphics matter...

Why graphics matter...

BlogThe more I think about it, the more it bothers. That is, the more people say "graphics don't matter" the more I think they're full of it. Actually, the more I think about it, I find the graphics are incredibly important to me. But maybe I'm being too loose with my definitions. Because whenever I think, "graphics," I automatically lump in art direction. Talking about how good the graphics are is pointless if what is being animated is boring to begin with.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Review

thumbs upRecently, I received Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions for the Wii, as a gift for my birthday. I had been really wanting to play this game for quite some time, so I was really excited.

Anyway, on with the review...

QuakeCon 2010!

QuakeCon 2010!

BlogRecently, I attended QuakeCon in Dallas, TX. For those of you who may not know, QuakeCon is an annual event, where many computer companies and developers come together to showcase their latest and greatest. The first con started in 1996 and has continued every year since then. This was only my 2nd time to the event; my first was in 2009, but some of my close friends have been going every year since 2003. The convention is always held in Dallas (or one of its suburbs), and usually occurs during the 2nd weekend of August. Read on

I'm just gonna come out and say it: this game is fucking great! I would like to make one thing clear before I go on, this is not a review; this is just my opinion. So don't expect me to go into too much detail about the controls or any of that shit. I just wanted to express my feelings toward the game and why I think its great. Read on

Where the Hell was LC during E3?

BlogAfter months of telling myself that once the news portion of Videogam.in was put up that I would dig in whole heartedly and really commit myself to the community here, E3 has come and gone, and not a single post from this ol' Cactus-lovin man. I love this place, I feel I owe some sort of explanation for what seems like a lack of presence. Read on
