Microsoft Mocks Itself in “Escape from XP”

Microsoft Mocks Itself in “Escape from XP”

Who Knew They Had a Sense of Humor?

Microsoft finally killed support for Windows XP – now 12 years old – earlier this week. With it came fears of lost customer support for businesses that relied on it and hackers exploiting systems still running it. However, we were unprepared for the threat that is Clippy firing laser beams out of his massive eyeballs. Read more »

Kicking It with Michel Thomazeau

Kicking It with Michel Thomazeau

Planets Cubed.

Since "Minecraft" exploded on the scene in 2011, it made a pretty significant impact on gaming - you might even say that it formed its own genre. We have seen dozens of "Minecraft" "clones" - games using that blocks and a "sandbox world" full of tools to do whatever you want. All those games are fun, but at the same time, they are fun in the exact same way that "Minecraft" is fun. They feel like the clones that they are, but clones wearing different hats and maybe speaking in a funky accent. Read more »

For April Fool’s Day, Google Sends Us on an Epic Journey

For April Fool’s Day, Google Sends Us on an Epic Journey

Gotta Catch'em All!

Google is well known for its clever little tricks and games that it plays on the public on April Fool's Day. GooglePaper, in 2007, had us believe that Google was starting a paper, snail-mail service. GoogleGulp, in 2005, made us think that they were getting into the energy-drink-filled-with-neurostimulators business. Just last year in 2013, we were informed that YouTube was actually a massive video contest and it was now closed for submissions (I'm pretty sure those judges are still working on that one....).

War Thunder

War Thunder

Take to the Skies!

I have so many games on Steam that it's ridiculous. I've probably only played 20 percent of them to any sort of completion. I have plenty of free time. I have a nice computer. Playing video games is literally part of my job here at Player Theory, and yet so many in my collection sit unplayed. So a few weeks ago, I can't tell you what I was doing perusing the free-to-play games on Steam. Why would I do that to myself? I don't know why I clicked on "War Thunder". I have no real interest in WW2 aviation sims. I don't know why I started playing it, but I did. Read more »

Experienced Devs from “Titanfall,” “Call of Duty” to Create Existential Horror

They’re so popular, in fact, that developers with experience on big name projects are leaving their current (presumably safer) AAA positions to lend their experience in a smaller title, "Daedelus", in a new start-up studio of their own making, Tangentlemen.

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game

Sometimes you gotta roll the hard d8....

I've only recently gotten into playing board games - within the last year and a half or so. But I dove in. I purchased dozens of games and tried them all - war games, mystery games, cooperative games, euro games....I've hit a lot of major genres. Again and again, my favorite board game mechanic is the secret traitor. These are the games where the group works together to accomplish a goal, but someone in the group - maybe even multiple people - are traitors and will subtlety throw wrenches in the group's plans whenever they can. When it comes to board games, nothing builds more excitement than treachery and figuring out who, if anyone, you can trust. Read more »
