Starcaster Issue #5

October 10, 2016 by Tim

Catch up with past issues if you need a refresher: Issue 1 Issue 2 Issue 3 Issue 4 As usual, Davi will work as quickly as possible to color the pages as I produce them, but I will post the black and whites in the meantime in order to maintain the regular update schedule.

Emerald Nightmare

October 7, 2016 by Tim

No, really Malfurion. You just stand there. We’ll handle it.

Sea of Thieves

October 5, 2016 by Tim

I don’t feel like we get enough good pirate games. Sid Meier’s strategy take is probably at the top of my list, but I’ve yet to play one that really captured the adventurous, high-seas stakes on a ground level. AC: Black Flag scratches a bit of that itch… I enjoyed the ship portion of the […]

Back down the rabbit hole

September 16, 2016 by Tim

So, yeah… I’m playing WoW again. After raiding hardcore through Wrath, I burned out hard at the start of Cataclysm. The first few bosses of the first raid, and I just wasn’t feeling it anymore. I left the game and I didn’t look back until much, much later. Right around the Warlords launched, my wife […]

Console Story

September 14, 2016 by Tim

Even though the Console Wars launched with an entirely narrative arc, I most often use the series as a way of tackling console industry news. As a result of going back to a narrative run this past week, I’ve noticed a bit of confusion regarding what news story I must be referring to involving Sony […]

Ctrl+Alt+Del on Patreon

September 7, 2016 by Tim

Check out what we released last month for our Patreon supporters! Patreon is a great way to support this site in an ongoing fashion. Especially if you use an adblocker which, while I won’t begrudge anyone’s right to use, does cut into the revenue we need to keep the lights on.

Labor Day Sale

September 5, 2016 by Tim

It’s Labor Day here in the states, and as such I thought this might be a good excuse to run a bit of a sale in our store. For today and tomorrow (Monday and Tuesday for those keeping track), a number of items will be marked down, including the Ctrl+Alt+Del 1.0 Box Set in both […]

Hype vs Lies

August 29, 2016 by Tim

It seems a number of people would rather see me classify No Man’s Sky’s hype as outright lies instead, but I don’t necessarily agree with that. Someone went and collected a list of features that were apparently shown but did not arrive in the retail release. The problem is, most of this stuff was shown […]

Looooooot Craaaaaates.  

Since No Man’s Sky came out, I’ve been thinking about how much damage hype does to the video games we play, and our perception of them. No Man’s Sky is hardly an isolated case, but it’s definitely a good example to use, because by the time it was actually released, nobody was judging the game […]

Looooooot Craaaaaates.

Applied Education Poster

August 22, 2016 by Tim

The remaining copies of the Applied Education poster have been signed and are now available for purchase in our store. 

No Man’s Sky has fizzled out for me now (and by now I mean last week sometime). While I spent some eight hours just exploring documenting my home planet, each successive planet captured my attention and imagination less and less as the seams of the engine running the game became more and more apparent. It […]

Just shove it in there

August 19, 2016 by Tim

Uh… huh. Doesn’t Konami already have a survival horror franchise? Wouldn’t it have made more sense to take a shit there instead?

FYI

August 18, 2016 by Tim

I am aware of the large handful of third party websites people can use to try and hook up with other Destiny players for in-game activities. I have no doubt they are an effective method of circumventing the game’s lack of tools for raidmatching in-game. My primary point, however, is in a game like Destiny […]
