Gaming with Disabilities

Gaming with Disabilities I have been a gamer since I was very young. I started with Sega Genesis when I was 7 or 8 but could mostly only watch people play it because the controller was too spread out. I tried to play it, although I would die or couldn't jump as easily as my friends did. I had the PlayStation One and had the same problem. The PlayStation Two is where the “game” changed for me because it had the two analog sticks in the center of the controller, so I was able to play at the same level as my friends, or even better than them sometimes. So I have stuck with the PlayStation brand since then.Read More

Is Titanfall Secretly Amazing?

Titanfall When Titanfall launched, it looked like it could be the new face of Xbox. Unfortunately, after only a couple months, due to a lack of content and variety, Titanfall faded into obscurity. With the one year anniversary of Titanfall’s release coming up next month, I decided to take a look at all the new features that have come out in the last year. There have been 3 DLC packs and 8 updates in the last year which have added a lot of cool content to the game, but are all these additions enough to bring Titanfall back?Read More

Space: The Crowded Frontier

Star Citizen Space simulation games occupy a very secure space in the industry. The genre fits gaming as well as zombies do, yet the genre hasn't really received much mainstream attention like FPS’ have, or at least it has in a while. In this article, I’m going to dive into the three big space sim games that are coming out in the next couple of years. They each have unique appeal and are massive in nature. Fully taking advantage of several decades of Moore’s law progress, these games are gargantuan feats of game design and engineering, fully exceeding the previous generations capabilities. The three games are Elite: Dangerous, Star Citizen, and No Man’s Sky.Read More

Spotlight: A look at Generantis, an indie game by ChromeWing

generantisUpdate2 As the web lead of GameZombie TV, I've contributed to the team with my intricate programming and web design skills. Now, I'm proud to share with all the readers of GZTV my contribution to the indie gaming scene: a game called Generantis. Generantis is a 2D side-scrolling shoot 'em up sandbox game with some ARPG elements. The game is about you as a character in a vast virtual galaxy known as the Gigaverse. You are a mere pawn used for entertainment by the administrators of your "fake" world, and you've decided to rise in rebellion against your creators in order to break free from your world.Read More

Dojo Unyielding: More than a One-Two Punch

Street Fighter 2 Combos. The bread and butter of the majority of fighting game players. While we think of the combo system as a staple mechanic that defines a genre, this was not always the case. Today, I’d like to tell you a bit about how a small programming accident became one of the greatest spectacles in video games, and just how exactly we got where we are now. While there had been simple combos in arcade brawlers, such as Double Dragon or Final Fight, the fighting game combo as we know it first appeared in Street Fighter II in 1991. In what is now a rather legendary moment in gaming history, one of the Capcom producers was testing for bugs when he noticed that certain sets of moves could cancel into each other, giving you more attacks than normal.Read More

Darkest Dungeon Early Access Review

Darkest Dungeon One of the benefits of being a Rogue-like specialist is that the games are usually really, really cheap. With Darkest Dungeon, I wasn't so fortunate: it cost me $20 to get it in Early Access, a fortune compared to the other titles I've reviewed so far. But as I quickly found out, Darkest Dungeon, even in its unfinished state, is worth every single penny. The game is about an ancient estate that’s been overrun by monsters and eldritch horrors. You are the new inheritor of this once-noble house, and it is your mission, upon the request of your late predecessor, to rid your lands of monsters and restore them to their former glory.Read More

Handhelds: Dead or Alive?

Monster Hunter 3 Handhelds have been around ever since I was young. I had an original Gameboy, a GameBoy Color, 3 PlayStation Portables and a PlayStation Vita. Needless to say, I like good quality mobile games , but is that audience still alive, or has the tablet and phone audience taken over? I cannot find any tablet or phone games that keep my attention for long. I am willing to spend $40 to 35 on a good portable game, and that’s somehow too expensive for a lot of people now.Read More
