AMC hit series The Walking Dead returns this Sunday, and I admit I am more than a little hooked on the show. I was looking to fill the void as I waited for February 10th to get here. So it was time to check out what TellTale had to offer in the Zombie department. Being more than familiar with TellTale, I wasn’t sure what to expect as Walking Dead seemed to be far different from the standard point and click.
How often do we hear games damned as bad influences upon children and the impressionable?
In light of this latest surge of gun violence, and the predictable storm of politicians and pundits who would find it easier to move against violent media than the tools of violence themselves, it’s more important than ever that gamers speak out about the ways our hobby has changed us for the better, not the worse. Below is the first of a series of videos by members of the Pixelated Geek staff on how games have wrought positive transformations in our worldview and behavior.
Is 2013 really the future of gaming? A lot of the major console developers would have you believe that, especially with the speculation of both the PS4 & Xbox 720 announcements right around the corner at E3 2013. Couple this with the Steam Box nearing production, and the rumor that the major consoles fear that Apple may join in the fun.
Not to be outdone, Nintendo has begun ramping up game development to save what’s left of the WiiU’s not-so-great launch.
Meanwhile, Sony has pulled from Apple’s playbook and decided to make an announcement before the big show.

Over the last several months and years, there have been several games that for some reason or another slipped by us here at Pixelated Geek. So as a result of those games that ended up going un-reviewed, I welcome you to Looking Back, where for the next several weeks, yours truly will bring you all series of reviews of games past. And for the inaugural review, what better way to start things off than by taking a look at a personal favorite of mine? I am talking of course about the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.
Titled “Jack the Ripper”, the new trailer showcases a new unmanned weapon type for Raiden to fight. Story-wise, the trailer focuses on Raiden’s descent into a more bloodthirsty persona, Jack the Ripper, his nickname from child soldier days during the Liberian Civil War.
The holidays are upon us and you are probably rushing to find the perfect gift for your loved ones. Sometimes finding the right gift can be a tricky thing to do, but if you have a gamer or two in your life, maybe this gift guide might help you find something.
With several stellar titles having been released over the last several months, you’re bound to find something to appease the gamer geek in your life.
I wonder how difficult it was for 343 Industries to take over Halo with Halo 4. The new “Reclaimer Trilogy” may have originated in a flat refusal to let those sweet, sweet Halo dollars slip through Microsoft’s fingers, but it’s pretty obvious that the folks working at 343 love their Halo. Not just the multiplayer, either – right after starting up Halo 4, you’re prompted to install the Halo Waypoint, an application including vast reams of Halo lore, background, and side stories that are either true labors of love or very, very convincing imitations.
So you can’t fault these guys for not putting in their best effort. They’ve been saddled with an enormous, fairly thankless task – taking over a much-beloved flagship franchise as the New Guys after the original creators decided they’d had enough. And Halo 4 is eager – really, really eager. Bless its heart, it wants to be the Reclaimer to this new Mantle of Responsibility.
343’s first effort is a worthy game, and proves that the change of developers may actually bring new improvements and ideas to the franchise. But their desire to give their game its own identity clashes with their need to play it safe to retain old fans and fixtures. Like any novice effort, there are some kinks to work out.
While checking out the latest from Elgato, I came across the Game Capture HD, which promised an easy, streamlined way to record you video game footage in HD. No more component cables, simply plug in and play HDMI and you are ready to record the greatest moments in gaming. How does the system compare with the already popular Eye TV?
Being the fifth entry in the franchise, Dead or Alive 5 really has to be something special. So how does this title hold up? Is it everything that DOA has been and more?
