The Failure of SimCity and the Cities of Tomorrow

SimCity (Technically, SimCity 5 or SimCity 2013, just so we are clear about which version I’m talking about since EA/Maxis dropped the numbering) was a huge disappointment for me.  EA/Maxis were close to hitting the mark, but couldn’t get the game exactly to what longtime fans of the series expected.  Let me tell you where the game failed in my eyes.


Duke Nukem Forever mini review; DNF isn't that bad!

I’m not sure I get where all the hate for Duke Nukem Forever comes from.  I’ve seen some absolutely horrendous reviews for the game.  I’m not exactly sure what people were expecting.  A game that has been in development hell for 12 years with multiple restarts for various reasons.  We aren’t looking at a game that had 12 years of solid development time which was used to evolve the game to a masterpiece.  Hell…the game was even cancelled at one point and was lucky to have Gearbox Software revive the project and bring it to completion so it could see the light of day.  Finally, Duke Nukem Forever wouldn’t be the longest running vaporware joke.


Fallout: New Vegas mini-review from a Fallout 1 & 2 fan

Back in early October of 1997 I got a call from my best friend Nick from high school and he was going on and on about this new game he just got called Fallout.  “Dude…you gotta pick this game up!’ He told me, “I can’t put it down.  My character and this guy I met, Ian, are tearing it up.”  He proceeded to tell me about the “SPECIAL” system and all the skills and traits he had picked for his character.  Me being the sucker that I am for peer pressure, I went out right after I got off the phone and picked up the game.

Fallout was easily one of the best games I had ever played.  All the ways you could customize your character, the different paths through the game and the multiple ways to complete quests just floored me.  Plus…it had Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver) voicing one of the characters in the game.  You can’t go wrong with that!  Enjoying Fallout as much as I did, it was a no brainer that I would pick up Fallout 2 when it released a year later.  The return to the wastelands of the Fallout universe with Fallout 2 was another great game in the series.


Don’t forget the Shadow Warrior!

I know Duke Nukem is all the rage and getting all the attention right now.  I completely understand that Duke Nukem Forever has been in development since Jesus was in diapers and its release next year is a huge deal.  However…let’s not forget the game that came out a year after Duke Nukem 3D…Shadow Warrior.
