Recently, Microsoft launched The Creator’s Collection for Xbox One.   Remember the Xbox 360 Indie Store? Yeah, it’s back baby, but with a new set of teeth. The 360’s Indie Store was a legendary gold mine for terribly hilarious and hilariously terrible games, with the negatives outweighing the positives…

I hate whenever somebody says a genre is dead.   When 2012 was alive and kicking, and the thought of the Mayans predictions was in the back of the peoples minds, the Horror and First Person Shooter genre were churning out clones amongst clones. Horror was practically bombarded with…

It’s no secret that executives in most industries are highly risk-averse, and the ones in the game industry are perhaps some of the most risk-averse of all. On one level, it’s difficult to really be angry at them for this, what people know sells, and it sells big. By…
