Lusipurr.com has announced a hiring call for Staff Writers. Do you have what it takes to write reviews and editorials as part of our elite video game journalism team? Are you interested in details, testimonials, and uncomfortable seating? Enquire within!
Ubisoft talks down the relevance of linear games, Nintendo’s ninth generation console may be another low power effort, and 343’s Frank O’Connor treats Halo fans as though they were idiots in the news of the week!
It is another esoteric week in the mind of Mel as he tackles some vaguery or another about myth building in videogames as well as the rose tinting of nostalgia. Old things get placed on pedestals and simple things get complex in this week’s column!
Ethos is falling out of love with Shadow of Mordor and is warily approaching Peggle 2. Did PopCap evade EA’s bottom line with their peg-based sequel unlike their greedy plant-based sequel? The answer is sorta, but not really. Spoilers.
Sometimes, Bup forgets to write an excerpt. This is one of those times. Luckily, Lusipurr is here to save the day and write a new excerpt–and, at the same time, to give Bup’s Steam Greenlight mini-‘Reviews’ a new name: the Greenlight Round-Up!
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Mel find themselves utterly downhearted after sifting through yet another week of depressing news. But then, they find a ray of hope in an unlikely place, and things begin to look up, eventually culminating in a very merry Bup.
Ubisoft is awful, their developers are horrid, and Xbox One performance is loathsome in the news of the week!
Mel looks at specific qualities that make a game addictive and fun. They involve many familiar mechanics, such as grinding, but what else? Games need more than just a grind to keep the player in that loop. Curious? Reach level twenty to get the answer!
Ethos jumps ahead a few decades from last week to talk about all the modern games he has been playing. Read and then comment to tell him that he is not nearly as cool as he thinks he is.
Heeding a request for consumer advice, Lusipurr provides an in-depth analysis of the Nintendo Wii U, SiliconNooB highlights Ubisoft’s policy of prevarication, and Bup talks about his favourite Indie game.
