Video game article update

You know what’s surprisingly more difficult than analyzing specific areas of a particular video game franchise?

Writing a short article about real-world economics, politics and the cultural state of affairs in a way that’s accurate, balanced, interesting to read, and yet totally devoid of research and sources for factual information.

Magicka!

I cannot stress enough that you should open up the Steam Store and purchase everything there is related to the game Magicka — the only video game where you can play as a mage with a hand gun and shades.  But that’s the least of all reasons why you should buy it:

  • It’s bright, playful and gorgeous visually
  • It’s cheap to buy (especially right now)
  • It’s got delightfully chaotic and challenging multiplayer, but it plays well solo
  • Best usage of combining elemental spells ever
  • It’s actually got a sense of humor
  • Magicka: Vietnam?

There’s more reasons, but long lists get annoying after a while.  Go see if it interests you right now!

Team Fortress 2 becomes Free to Play forever

Did you know that Team Fortress 2 is the best multiplayer game in the world today? It’s better than your Calls of Duty, your StarCrafts, your Worlds of Warcraft, and better than Farmvilles too. I’ve talked about how TF2 is better than Metal Gear Online at length. The same points apply to almost anything out there today.

And now it’s just a free thing, that you can have and enjoy.

Thank you, Valve. Thank you for being heroes.

New Team Fortress 2 update + site

The Über Update is upon us.

Featuring some mafia-related gear for the Heavy and Spy, as well as a new map, the update will surely be a doozie! It’s also going to include the “Meet the Medic” video (finally!)

Along with that, the Team Fortress 2 blog has been revamped to include class profiles, update history, comics, and awesome artwork.

Unfortunately, all of this content will cost you a whopping zero dollars.

Oh, and if you don’t own the game, you can now play it FOR FREE this ENTIRE WEEK!
