When Super Mario 3D World was announced at E3 this year, I was thrilled. After all, my Wii U, which I purchased on launch day, was begging for something new to play.

For anyone lucky enough not to have stumbled onto Salon.com, it is a online liberal publication that specializes in giving any Berkeley educated radical or sorry excuse of a failure the opportunity to cry about social and political issues that no one cares about (regardless of your political stance). So to no surprise they have published several ill-written articles that have been very critical of the video game industry and culture. However unlike their typical crybaby banter; none of the writers could be considered experts because most of them admit to not having actually played or know anything about the video games they are discussing. As a gamer I cannot silently sit aside while Salon.com gives a voice to fake gamers who are slandering our community.

Dragon City is SocialPoint’s most renowned game, and since its release date, it has been a dominant stakeholder inside the social games environment. Why? It uses a formula based on the well-known farm games but adds a dynamic component of gathering and collecting units for fighting later (with more than 200 now). Inside the first part of the recipe, we tackle the pure game side of Dragon City, with how the different features are applied to game flow, gameplay, and dynamics. In the second part, we focus on social interactions, retention, and monetization tricks and formulas.

My review of one of the best games of the year, Grand Theft Auto V
Video games are terrible. New video games are even worse. Integrity isn’t a question right now: it’s like mid-seventies NY porn.
The effect that the original BioShock (2007) had and continues to have on the usage of choice in modern mainstream gaming.
The fourth entry in the Saints Row series sees The Video Game shed its mortal trappings and ascend to a higher place. I don’t think it is an exaggeration to say that in Saints Row IV we finally have the greatest example thus far of the video game in its purest form.
