Nintendo's Latest Financial Report Begs the Question, "What Went Wrong?"

These days, you would be hard pressed to find gamers – or anyone over 18 for that matter – who don’t fondly recall long nights playing Nintendo classics like "Mario Kart 64," "Super Mario World," "Metroid," or any other time-honored titles. It is exactly this nostalgia that Nintendo recently preyed on in their newest financial report. Read more »

"7 Days To Die" in its final week on Kickstarter

Zombies have infiltrated modern day popular culture and taken over so many different aspects of it that it's hard to remember a time when they weren't already everywhere. One of the most popular shows on television right now is about zombies. Every couple of months, another zombie movie is churned out and devoured by undead-hungry fans. Some of the most popular books recently have zombies as a main, central theme. But video games ... video games are something that zombies have completely taken over. Even if you take out the games that deal with a straight-on zombie setting, you still have DLC being whipped out to satisfy players' zombie-killing urges in games that don't even really need zombies to begin with.

Throwback Thursday: Fallout 3

I’ll always keep coming back to "Fallout 3." In the few years since I first played it, it’s already become one of those games forever rooted in my memories alongside "Donkey Kong Country" and half a dozen "Final Fantasy" titles. Read more »

Tribes Subreddit Considering Banning Hi-Rez Employees

r/tribes Avoids Banhammer for Now

Hi-Rez, the publisher for the popular game "Tribes: Ascend", nearly lost the ability to post to the "Tribes" subreddit yesterday due to a winning combination of using abusive language in the community and thrusting the responsibility of being the "official" forum for "Tribes" onto the subreddit’s moderators (without their knowledge).

Changing The Forgotten Realms

The Forgotten Realms is a campaign setting for Wizard of the Coast's "Dungeon and Dragons" tabletop game. It is the campaign setting, in fact. Originally published in 1987, The Forgotten Realms has been home to countless novels, video games, and tabletop adventures. Even people that have never played D&D in their life probably have seen pictures of a scimitar-wielding dark elf or an old wizard dressed in red. The Forgotten Realms is the iconic fantasy campaign setting, and I feel its safe to assume that every D&D player out the has spent at least one evening exploring the fabled land. Read more »

Released Concept Art Illustrates How It Could've Gone Down

In a tweet last night, Neil Druckmann, creative director at Naughty Dog, spoke about what he's going to talk about during his panel at Pax Prime at the end of August. He plans on discussing what Naughty Dog originally had planned for the ending of 2013's hit game "The Last of Us." It'll be up to the fans to decide which ending they prefer. Tacked on to that tweet was a piece of concept art which dramatically teases at how the game could have potentially ended. Read more »

How to Get a Stubborn Gamer Out of Their Comfort Zone

I’ve never been big on card games or tabletop games. I prefer my games in digital format and have as long as I can remember playing anything at all. I even skipped out on the "Pokemon" TCG even when it was wildly popular; I stuck with my Nano Baby instead (heresy, I know). It started with my parents playing "Super Mario Brothers" on the NES with me, and that’s how it’s been ever since. Read more »

The Original MMO Returns

The first MMORPG I ever played was "Everquest." I was in middle school at the time, and my first character was a gnome warrior named "Allondo." It was a bizarre combination, but I loved the idea of a tiny, tinkering warrior rushing into battle against all sorts of larger foes. That game basically consumed my life for years after. I would wake up early in the morning, skip Saturday morning cartoons, and power through Crushbone Keep, the Estate of Unrest, and Kithicor Forest. The game seemed so unbelievably huge, and I was playing with real people from all over the world. That made every single time I logged in seem new. Read more »

The Avant Geek

The main focus of Player Theory is the games. We read about them, we play them, we write about them, and then we really hope that you read what we think. The world of video games isn't something that just encompasses the virtual - it's become somewhat of a culture in and of itself. In the physical world, that culture mostly takes the form of geeky t-shirts, and occasionally for the particularly enthusiastic, a tattoo. For some people, though, a video game can be a driving, creative force that inspires them to not just play the game, but take what they see and what they like and actually try their hand at creating it in real life. Anyone that's been to a comic or game convention can attest to the sheer amazingness of some these creations. Read more »

Android: Netrunner

The future has already arrived. It's just not evenly distributed yet.

We live in an interesting, frightening, and paranoid time. With the whole NSA PRISM thing going on and the government and corporations watching our every move, it really does feel like we're spiraling into a sci-fi dystopian future where shadowy figures above us force their unsavory agendas and the only secrets we have are the ones that we don't think about.
