Following behind my previous article about hype culture, I wanted to discuss another trend in how upcoming things are discussed.

Destiny 2 Lied To Players About End Of Game Experience Point Gains

I’ve been meaning to write in detail about Destiny 2 for a while now – I’ve been playing the game pretty regularly and heavily the past month or so and have been enjoying myself quite a bit.  One thing that I noticed but didn’t think about is that at the end of the game, once …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 28: Die Hard – Episode Review

Time for what is considered another classic Angry Video Game Nerd episode, we have James reviewing Die Hard for the NES. Now would be a good time to mention that, for some reason, I’ve still not watched the film Die Hard! I know enough about it though to know what’s going on in the game, …
