Liore’s Hot Gamer Trend of 2014: Alienation

Today almost every studio game has some multiplayer elements. Even games that have historically been for single players only now frequently come with an aspect of multiplayer, some of which has been done well (Mass Effect 3!) and some of which has not (SimCity 2013, whyyyy). The most popular and recognizable games in the world — League of Legends, World of Warcraft, and Call of Duty — all entirely rely on multiplayer,...

2013 Steam Holiday Sale Report Card

It’s December already?! I managed to negotiate the Steam Fall Sale without buying anything, mostly due to the fact that I’ve already put 60+ hours into Dragon Age: Inquisition and I still have about a third of the game left to complete.

Donate at least $5, and pick your game! It’s first come,...

Game Journalism: not really that important

There were a few events this week that got everyone pontificating about game journalism and bias. I’m not going to get into the specifics of the events because they involve harassment and violation of privacy*, but at issue is potential collusion between game journalists and developers because of personal relationships. I mentioned on Twitter that I don’t care about relationships between journalists and developers and...

And now… screenshots.

I’m sick today and don’t feel up to writing much, so let’s just look at some screenshots from my 2014 folder, okay? This happened last night while playing around with my Druid ramp deck. Note that it’s turn 2. Listen, Hearthstone, when I say I want a deck with big creatures I kind of mean LATER in the game okay. My WildStar character in her scientist costume, relaxing during a taxi ride. The game has so many...
