What Killed My Social Life Last Year – 2013 Gaming In Review

This picture actually does a better job of conveying “Gaming circa 2009”, but whatever.

Greetings Evil Geek Gamers or EGGs, if you’re up for a cool sounding acronym.  When will the EGGs hatch? Soon. What will the EGGs hatch? Terror, bad cholesterol, and world domination! 2013 has certainly been a year in which gaming has taken place.  That’s to say that it’s not been unbearably horrible, but in my opinion it hasn’t been stellar either.  Sure we’ve had some great games and even one that could be considered a masterpiece of storytelling, but we’ve had our fair share of turds hit the market this year and even some games that had great expectations, but managed to be only so-so in their final execution.  Let’s take a look at some of the stuff that I thought worked, some that outright sucked, and some that were just meh.

Let Me Put My Suggestions In You: Batman Arkham Origins

arkham origins 1

Once again, we find ourselves on converging paths. Good morning to you all in readerland! Today marks your usual day for Suggestions, and like I do most every week, with a few exceptions, I  plan on giving you all something that you should be sinking your teeth into at this very moment. I normally try and give you guys something to read or to view, but I wanted to give you guys something to play with this week. No, it is not the Crown Jewels of Harkness, but something a bit more dark and brooding. Not to say that the Harkness nuts aren’t constantly roasting with vengeance, but it was not what I was referring to. I, and much of the gaming community, have been waiting patiently for the follow up to our favorite Batty hero’s adventures, and we finally have the ability to get our hands on it. Ladies and gentlemen, denizens of the evening, and inhabitants of Arkham, I bring to you…..Batman: Arkham Origins!

New Trailers revealed at E3 2013!

Afternoon Nerds!

E3 is upon us and that means that we get to see what’s in store for our video game futures! Three trailers hit the internet yesterday that are based on successful franchises, yet offer us a new take on them, so lets take a look!

LEGOMarvelSuperHeroes

First off we have LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is based on the wildly popular LEGO franchise where we’ve seen Star Wars, Batman, Indiana Jones, and even Pirates but this time it stars the heroes and villains from the Marvel U! In the story you work with Nick Fury as he calls upon heroes to save the world from the likes of Loki, Galactus, and more! From first look it appears that it’s heavily based on the movie universe (for the Avengers at least,) but I hope that there are a bunch of different skins available so I can assemble some 60’s heroes! The LEGO games are some of my favorites so this will definitely be on the top of my birthday or christmas list this year! LEGO Marvel Super Heroes will be available for all systems later this year and you can check out the trailer right here…
