Video games already all have an objective. From Pacman eating pellets and fighting ghosts, to the elaborate objective of solving a mystery with a newly found rewind power in Life is Strange. Life is Strange however, is a different type of video game, it’s in the category of video games that I would qualify as literature. A lot of video games now fall into this … Continue reading Video games: The Literature of the Future
Literature, or not literature, that is the question. All puns aside, a lot of video games do qualify as literature even though it’s not a popular idea. Video Games as art? Of course! Video Games as Lit? Not so much. Games such as Bio Shock, The Walking Dead, Life is Strange, The Wolf Among Us, Until Dawn and so many more all have stories involved … Continue reading Why are Video Games so Lit?
Here’s a link to my play through of season 1, and here’s season 2. Season 2 really kicked off, creating more choices and outcomes than Season 1. By the end of Season 2 Episode 4 , I was feeling like the group was definitely going to fall apart (because of Kenny being a butt, the baby not having Rebecca, and overall pandemonium.) The ending of … Continue reading The Walking Dead Seasons 1 and 2: Summing it up.
SPOILERS! Check out what happened in the last episode. So Clem is with Nick in a barn hiding from walkers and right away I feel like I made the wrong choice. Nick just leaves an 11 year old to hold the door from crazy walkers while getting something to block the door WITHOUT SAYING A WORD. While Clem was sleeping this crazy man starts throwing liquor … Continue reading The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 2
SPOILERS! Check out the ending of Season 1 here. Okay so this game looks like the bomb diggity. I play on my IPad 2 and Season 2 looks a lot better than Season 1. Everything is smoother and nice and lovely. The gameplay is also a little different too. It makes it more interactive. The opening of Season 2 didn’t just continue from where Season … Continue reading The Walking Dead S2 E1 Decisions
SPOILERS!!! (look at the foreshadowing on the picture alone, UGH!) I previously played Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3 and Episode 4. At the start of this episode I have Christa, Omid, and Ben. These crazy people decide it would be a great idea to cut off my arm but I refuse. Too much time passed since Lee was bit, plus I knew it wouldn’t matter anyway. I take … Continue reading The Walking Dead S1 E5 Decisions
SPOILERS! I previously played Episode 1, Episode 2, and Episode 3. I would like to start off by saying that this episode that this episode was complete pandemonium (Just as I predicted). Also, I’m giving up the “I” vs “Lee” thing and am just flip flopping. I am Lee and Lee is me, we’ve been through too much together. The tension in the group at … Continue reading The Walking Dead S1 E4 Decisions
SPOILERS I’ve already played Episode 1 and Episode 2. This episode starts out with Kenny and Lee searching for supplies, and then a woman comes out of nowhere and starts screaming and ruining everything. I shoot the woman and Kenny gets upset with Lee because he has no morals. While grabbing supplies I feel extremely rushed because I want to get all of them, but … Continue reading The Walking Dead S1 E3 Decisions
SPOILERS I already played episode 1 and you can find my little review here. Okay so we’re three months past when Larry punched me and knocked me flat in the pharmacy. There’s some new guy (Mark) asking me things about Kenny and Lilly. So, naturally, I’m going to be on Kenny’s side! While hunting with Mark, we come cross some jocks and their coach. Now I’ve … Continue reading The Walking Dead S1 E2 Decisions
In the article, On the failure of Fallout 4 at the hands of The Witcher 3, Moosa claims that the default reaction of violence in video games effects the gameplay and story experience. I completely agree. I have never played Fallout but have seen some play-throughs and reaction videos to get the gist. You are constantly fighting something in the game, and everything revolves around … Continue reading How Violence in Video Games effects the Story and Gameplay
