Robin Williams to be a part of Zelda?

If reports are to be believed, late actor and legend Robin Williams could well be a part of the much popular video game “Legend of Zelda.” One of the most versatile actors of international cinema who passed away a few days back, leaving millions of mourning fans behind had been known for his love of video games, especially Zelda.

Celebrity apps — Other star-sponsored titles thriving alongside Kim Kardashian: Hollywood

By now, if you read gaming articles on sites like Venture Beat, you’re already aware of the runaway success of Kim Kardashian’s mobile app game, whereby users get to pretend they are a personal pion to the reality TV star and work their way up from celebrity assistant to being the blessed soul that accompanies Kim on last-minute outings to fabulous parties and the like. And although it may seem like other stars are jumping on the bandwagon as a result of Kim’s fame, the true fact is that her game was released in June, while others mentioned below were released earlier. Only Tom Hanks’ app came out afterward.

What I look for in a great game

Everyone has their favorite games. They can give you a million reasons why they love their games, but rarely do I hear about what people actually expect from games in general. With so many genres and play styles out there, it’s difficult to figure out what makes an individual game “great” in the midst of so many constants and variables. So I’m going to attempt to explain what I personally look for in a game that will make me stop and say “yeah, that game was pretty freaking sweet.” This will be a list of three things that make a game great for me, but it will not be in an order of importance. I’m just going to consider what goes into a game and say what I look for with each individual piece, as well as how it should fit into the whole package. I won’t be talking about graphics, art style, sound design, etc., as those are just basic yet important accessories to any game, and each game is too different for me to talk about these features at length. With that said, let’s get started.

Sharing Is Caring

Let me start by saying I LOVE gamers. They are (generally) a uniquely creative brand of people who truly get into the art of video games and if I had it my way I would personally thank every hardcore nerd out there for helping further the industry. That being said, I feel the need to discuss my biggest qualm with them: their lack of true community.

It’s Dangerous To Go Alone

You can really tell what crowd a person runs in by how they define the word “Party.” Some think of drug filled raves while even more thinks of quaint social gathering between peers. Me? I think of games. Some of the most hilarious and entertaining moments of my life have been spent in a party in a great video game. It is my opinion that any action can be enjoyed to a higher degree when you are surrounded by people who enjoy it as well. And, lets be honest, why sit around with friends discussing wine when you can destroy an armored car with  a RPG?!
