5 Things | I Hate About Zombie Games

If there’s one genre of game out there that really needs to be taken down a peg, it’s zom­bie games.  Slow and dumb AI is met with over­done jump scares that really aren’t impress­ing any­one out there.  Whether you’re going it alone, as in the Res­i­dent Evil series, or team up with a group of sur­vivors, via the Left 4 Dead games, there’s noth­ing more tedious than hav­ing to deal with an onslaught of never-ending undead ene­mies.  If all that wasn’t enough, you have to deal with the campy and under­de­vel­oped sto­ries in these games as well.  With that, let’s go over the 5 Things I hate about zom­bie games.

5 Things | I Love About My PS3

Every­one love to talk about which gam­ing con­sole is their favorite.  Com­par­ing sys­tems to decide which is best is some­thing nat­ural for fans, but that’s not what I’m here to talk about today.  I’m not claim­ing that any one home con­sole is any bet­ter than the other, in fact I love them all for dif­fer­ent rea­sons, but I want to take a few moments today to acknowl­edge a few of the things that I love about my PS3.

5 Things | I Rock to On My Commute

Often when I’m rid­ing the rail to or from work, while I’d love to be gam­ing, it’s much eas­ier to just lis­ten to some tunes.  You might, at this point, be ask­ing what kind of music I lis­ten to dur­ing my com­mute.  I’m here to tell you that, while I often lis­ten to a vari­ety of things, my favorites are usu­ally songs from video games.  Here are five of the ones that I crank the vol­ume up all the way when they come on.  I’ve included links to each song on the title, so feel free to give them a lis­ten and hear for yourself.
