E3 2015 and Beyond: Stop Gamer Entitlement, Play Nice

(Originally published on ScrewAttack approximately 2 years ago. Enjoy!)

Even when I’m not actively engaging with anyone on social media, I still pay attention to the daily ambiance of the gaming community, 7 days a week. I use it as kind of a yardstick to help determine the “climate” of the gamer environment, if you will. Certain events seem to draw the ire of the community (including 2014’s debacle that rhymes with “Framer Mate”), but what I can count on yearly is the crybaby bullshit I hear after every…single…E3 event.

Played Violent Video Games, Still Not a Serial Killer

(Originally published on ScrewAttack approximately two years ago. Enjoy!)

Ahh, the mid-to-late 90’s.  This was a great era to be a gamer, as the console wars were in full effect and developers continued to push the limits of accepted convention.  This meant beefier graphics, soul-shredding soundtracks, and….blood, lots of BLOOD!  Arcade titles have already been experimenting with these new risque formulas earlier in the decade, with titles such as Mortal Kombat and Time Killers.  So by consequence, it was only a question of time before home consoles would become the new host of pixelated brutality!

Summer Brutality 2017 Announcement

Hey hey, folks! Lumpz the Clown here, and I’m pleased to announce…SUMMER BRUTALITY 2017! In previous events, I would give myself 2 hours to claim victory over some of the hardest titles in video game history, and mostly fail at it. I’ve taken on the likes of Volgarr the Viking, Mega Man, and Castlevania Adventure…all of which have ended in utter failure.

But that last one has stuck with me somehow. And one more, I’m a little sick and tired of my own continually growing backlog of games that I may never get around to beating. That is why, for Summer Brutality 2017, I’m pleased to announce the end of this practice, while showing my love for Castlevania, by taking on three, count ’em, THREE Castlevania titles.

Christopher Belmont Sucks

(Click here to read all about his misdeeds on Gaming Rebellion)

Alright. I’ve had a few days to calm down and listen to some of the discourse of my fellow Castlevania fans over on Facebook, but my opinion still stands: Christopher Belmont is the absolute worst! Continue reading
