Microsoft fucked its fans good. No condom. No lubricant. Just an AIDS-infested cock of casual gaming, right in the ass! Now, the Xbox fans are too sore to sit down, which is convenient, since Kinect forces you to stand up. Waggling your arms, jumping, and shifting your body, has become the heart of the Xbox experience. This is great for soccer moms and fat fuck dudebros trying to lose weight (hey they have be able to look down and see their penis one day, right?). However, aside from the typical rehashes, the core gamers have been thrown to the curb like a hooker who came up short for her pimp. The sad part is, the 360 is profiting like never before. Expect micro-SOFT to be in the gaming business for quite some time, finding new ways to pump estrogen in its forthcoming offerings.
In the latest of “spitting in the hopes of classic games fans”, EA has decided to announce their latest attempt to bring back the Ultima series as a cartoony Free-To-Play RPG developed by Bioware, in which you get the choice to… either play as a fighter or as a mage.
Ultima is considered to be the grand-daddy of wRPGs, with Ultima VII being one of the landmarks in gaming. Ultima has been known for its rich lore, expansive storyline and epic quests, and now it sounds more and more like the latest installment will be some facebook game or something similar.
Thank god for modern gaming. Don’t get me wrong, there are still great classic wRPGs in the making, but this kind of news can be really depressing sometimes.

Is mobile gaming just about empty experiences? An unbiased answer from an owner of a Vita, 3DS, and iOS device.
Phone gaming has become synonymous with casual fluff like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja. I’m not saying they are bad games. In fact, they are pretty ideal for killing 5 or 10 minutes of time. Launching birds at pigs does have its initial novelty, as does swiping fruit like some kind of crazed, lunatic chef. Also, both games play rather well with the strengths and limitations of any touch screen device. However, there are titles that go beyond being mindless entertainment. Some even rival, and surpass, the innovation found on traditional handheld gaming devices. Most of these gems are usually some kind of puzzler, platformer, or adventure game. The touch screen services these genres rather well. As for big budget shooters and action-adventure titles, I doubt you’ll see anything comparable to Uncharted Golden Abyss or Resident Evil Revelations for a long time…if ever! Those are genres that just work much better with analog sticks and traditional button layouts. Also, iOS or Android gamers won’t shell out $30-$40 for any of these titles…at least not now. Fortunately, I have both a Vita and a 3DS for these kinds of games. I keep my iOS device for those rarities you won’t find on either Sony’s or Nintendo’s portable platforms. Now, the following list isn’t my top 10 of all time. I left out games like Ghost Trick, which is superior to the DS version, and World of Goo (a PC/Wii game) because they are ports. I wanted to focus more on titles only available on mobile devices.

A few weeks ago I wrote an article about the Mass Effect series. I observed the way the games had transformed into a commercial juggernaut by this third installment, and how there may have been sacrifices made along the way in order to bring new fans to the series. Thus, I wondered if Mass Effect 3 would be able to hit the sweet spot between hardcore and commercial in a way that wouldn’t alienate any of the fans that they picked up along the way. Before I get too into my review, let me once again give you a little info about myself. I’ve been a fan of this series since I was about 10 minutes into the first game and saw Saren betray the shit out of Nihlus. I would have had a hard time disliking ME3 based off of the simple fact that I am absolutely in love with the universe and the lore behind the games. However, this is my first review and I will make it a fair one. That said, Mass Effect 3 deserves your money. Yesterday.
