Money and art are sort of like oil and water, sometimes. It can be really hard to talk about the two together without things becoming uncomfortable. Regardless, I'm going to do it anyway.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

E3 - Kneel Before the Great and Powerful Sony!

Being a diehard fan often means opening yourself up to some serious disappointment. When you really love something, a game, a movie, a television show, you want as much of it as you can get your hands on, and every tease of something new, the potential for a new season, or a sequel, or ancillary comics or books, can drive you right to the bottom of the well when those projects fall apart. Abandoned intellectual properties. Unfinished sequels. Dangling plot threads, left unresolved. These things drive you mad.

TwitchCon putting the Twitch in TwitchCon... Twitch.

We’ve discussed before how conventions are becoming a central component in the world of gaming video celebrities. With creators taking over events like PAX with their panels, event shows, Q&As and autograph sessions, seeing and interacting with let’s players and streamers is the reason why many choose to attend these mega-events, while the allure of early-access to as-of-yet-unreleased games and mountains of swag used to be the main draw. More and more, general gaming shows are transforming into an extension of these online communities, the presence of superstars like Markiplier or the Sidemen overwhelming that of major game studios.

Twitch Bans "Hatred" - I'm Ambivalent

Posted by Greg Rozen

Jun 4, 2015 8:30:00 AM

I don’t know how to feel about Hatred. The mass-murder simulator has been a subject of scorn and revulsion since it first announced itself this past October. Prior to its official release this past Monday, the powers that be over at Twitch made the decision, without naming “Hatred” specifically, that adult-only rated games would not be allowed on their streaming service. That this is exactly the kind of attention the developers were looking for when they created the game didn’t change anything; they don’t want this game anywhere near their site.

What makes a game perfect for “Let’s Play?” Whether it’s from creators trying to select the subject for their next series, or developers trying to make a name for themselves by leveraging YouTube and Twitch into making their work the next big thing, it’s a question that comes up a lot.

No Words... Should Have Sent A Poet (A Toy Story)

Every now and then, something magical happens. You’re just sitting sitting at your desk, prowling the internet, or riding the bus home from work, browsing on your phone. Maybe it’s been a long day. Work was stressful. The weather was lousy. You’re just having a tough time. Then, as if the universe had a mind of its own and it was looking out for you, like a guardian angel from some crappy fairy tale, it happens. You stumble upon something. Something so special and unexpected that it just turns your whole day around and paints a big dumb grin on your face as you scramble to social media, hoping to be the first to spread this wonderful, wonderful news.

Love Is Pain: Konami Will Break MGS Fans' Hearts

Metal Gear Solid was the reason I bought a Playstation. Way back in the dark ages of the nineties, I was in middle school, and still a card-carrying member of Team Nintendo. Goldeneye was the most important group activity since cops and robbers. Ocarina of Time was the greatest, most epic game ever made. These are things I knew, without a doubt, and were the subject of countless arguments between my friends and I. Then, finally, during a sleepover at my buddy’s house, I sat down and played through the events on Shadow Moses, and, immediately, I was hooked.

Nerd Shaming: ESPN, Colin Cowherd, and eSports Ignorance

Posted by Greg Rozen

May 7, 2015 8:30:00 AM

So, ESPN 2 gave extended air-time to an eSports tournament, carrying Blizzard’s “Heroes of the Dorm” finale just over a week ago, and, of course, one of the Mothership’s more proudly ignorant commentators slagged the whole thing off as part of the downfall of his own company.
