Western Coin-Op is Missing Out: A Short Piece on the “Game Centre”

If you’re into video games in any kind of measure then you have seen something like the above image. That is a rail shooter and one of the most famous ones to boot and while not all arcade machines are rail shooters I can guarantee that no matter what country you come from, you have seen something that looks like one of those. Now allow me to take a moment to tell you a story of my childhood. A long long time ago, in a land far, far away known as London, there was an absolutely massive arcade Read more [...]

Evil Within the Thumb

Help me Evil Within; you’re my last hope for Mainstream Horror.

Resident Evil 4 was an amazing journey that took us, the player, on an adventure through time and space with a 900 hundred year old alien with two hearts…wait, sorry, that’s Doctor Who. But seriously it was an amazing game that revolutionized the horror genre. It not only came up with new ways to scare the shit out of us, combine action and horror seamlessly but it most importantly taught us that even if you’re a full grown gamer, you’re never too old to piss your pants. And I liked that Read more [...]

Does Silent Hill Need fixing Feat

Does Silent Hill need fixing?

I was inspired to write this piece by Naygom’s last bit on Killer Instinct, so allow me to open by ripping him off. Do you remember when Silent Hill was cool? Do you remember the disgusting, grimy visuals throughout the series? Do you remember replaying for hours to get all the endings, outfits, weapons and all the other unlockable extras? The cold sad voice of James’s dead wife calling your name as you walk away from the bars in that hotel in Silent Hill 2? Read more [...]

Where’s my Killer Instinct???

Do you remember when Killer Instinct was cool? Do you remember the gritty hardcore graphics on the Super Nintendo version? The badass voice over? Do you remember grinding for hours to master the Ultra combos and when you pulled it off, the epic original that voice yells ULTRA ULTRA ULTRA!!!!!! Let me tell you something, I remember this. So why the FUCK doesn’t Double Helix Games and Microsoft?! I remember a few years back saying to my fellow kindawesomer MUNki that a new Killer Instinct was Read more [...]

Steven Moffat Haters, My Body is Ready.

**Possible Spoilers** Hey gang, before I start out on this article, I want to stress, as I always do, that this is my personal opinion. This, more than other topics, I think may cause me to receive a lot of hate mail. But to the haters out there all I have to say is, I don’t give a Moffat….oh yes, I went there. So lately, well not lately, since season 5, there have been a number of people out there who hate, and I’m talking 3-year-old-being-forced-to-eat-vegetables hate, Steven Moffat. Read more [...]

Behind the Keyboard – Hugh Jeremy: Carpenter

  The games industry has grown in leaps and bounds over the years. It's grown from a lone few dedicated coders to encompass a wide range of positions, from coders and artists to economists and experimental psychologists. Then there's Hugh Jeremy, who from following his exploits, appears to be the games equivalent of James Bond. I was able to catch him whilst playing a game of high stakes baccarat, and ask a few questions about how it all got started.     For the Read more [...]

Sonic Lost World

Under the Microscope: Sonic Lost World Trailer

Hi I'm FiRE MUNki and I'm a Sonic Fan. Many a day have I waited for fruit to ferment in trees before getting drunk and fucking around in the jungle. I've also been following the Sonic series (games, TV shows, comics, the expanded Sonic fandom, you name it!) since I was a wee-baby-monkey. I think its safe to assume that many of you can understand that both of these habits can be viewed as equally destructive considering the past decade of Sonic games. These days I'm plenty excited as Sonic Read more [...]

Thumb Ageing

All Ages Games

Think back to the first game you can remember playing. If your parents weren't normal, it may have been a game like Mortal Kombat or Duke Nukem 64. But I'm willing to bet a large portion of readers can remember their first game was specifically a children’s game or at very least an all age type game. Fast forward to today. If someone were to bad mouth Mario Kart or Banjo Kazooie to me, I'd slap them right in their ignorant mouth. Luckily, most people my age won't say anything against a game Read more [...]

I'm sorry your party is in another castle...

Where My Party Multiplayers At?

I recently had my birthday party. It was a raucous affair, with a large quantity of alcohol and sugar consumed. Throughout the party we had a large game of Mortal Kombat 9 playing in the background. It was one-on-one match ups the whole night where the standard 'winner plays on' rule applied. This went on from when the party started until almost the very end of the night. Almost 12 hours of constant Mortal Kombat 9 and not a second of it was dull; there were matches that had everyone in the room Read more [...]
