I'm getting pretty excited for this.
; It’s been quite a while since we’ve been talking about the good old high watermark for new-gen consoles, 1080p and 60 FPS, but one game is putting those data points back in the limelight, Doom. In an interview with the game’s executive director, Mary Stratton, Gamespot learned that id Software [...]

I don't buy it.
Everyone has their own guess as to what Nintendo’s NX hardware will actually turn out to be, and Silicon Valley based tech advisor Digi-Capital has put their analytical skills to the test to put forth their best theory. It’s somewhat plausible, but I’m not sure if I’m convinced. In short, [...]

The NX could use a huge launch game.
At this point, there’s so little news about Nintendo’s next Zelda game, that even non-news is news. Hence a story about Nintendo Marketing VP Scott Moffitt saying the following to iDigitalTimes: “We confirmed that a Zelda game, a new Zelda experience is in development for the Wii U and we have [...]

Half-Life 3 has been the subject of new rumors.
Video ; Yesterday, a video was making the rounds from YouTube channel The Know, which excavates video game rumors of varying degrees of plausibility. They’ve scored wins with correct predictions about Dark Souls 3 and Rise of the Tomb Raider based on their anonymous sources, but recently seemed to miss by declaring [...]

This could potentially change the game quite a bit, if handled well.
; Yesterday, Bungie released a new Destiny Weekly Update that showcased a host of new weapon concepts planned for the upcoming fall expansion, The Taken King. They’re really hammering home this “brand” style of weapon design where one manufacturer has a specific look and feel, and the concepts are all pretty [...]

+Derek Rawlings I agree let anyone use the weapon, but have it have guardian specific perks. Hell for that matter they could just add specific perks to the RNG and make it totally random.

I don't even...
  It may seem strange that eSports have specific events for women. After all, unlike traditional sports, there are no physical factors that play into potential separation, so why bother at all? While women are certainly welcome to compete in male-dominated eSports events, the fact remains that they are just that, male-dominated. [...]

I don't think there's any legitimate inside information here.
  This morning, a reddit thread is being passed around the Destiny fan community claiming insider knowledge about aspects of not only The Taken King, but also Destiny 2 itself. I’ve read it a few times (you can see it here for yourself), and each time it gets a little less [...]

What a cute little keyboard!
  Microsoft made news last week when they announced that they were working to ensure that the Xbox One had full mouse and keyboard support soon enough. The idea is that the functionality is needed in order to effectively implement PC to Xbox One streaming of computer games, where currently only [...]

Nintendo thinking outside the box. Outside the building the box is in. Outside the country the box is in.
; Earlier this week, internet sleuths dug up a Nintendo patent for what appears to be the rough design of their mysterious “Quality of Life” sensor, something long touted by the company as an experimental project, but little has been officially revealed about it. That remains the case, but the patent gives [...]

Timed exclusives are an irritant, not a benefit.
; The first real video game console war was detailed expertly in one of my favorite non-fiction books, aptly titled “Console Wars” by Blake J. Harris. It’s a story of drama, suspense, and even intrigue, and shows how Nintendo eventually bested SEGA to knock the rival company out of the console [...]

Everyone wants Call of Duty games to be backward compatible, but how does it benefit Activision?
; Microsoft has been keeping track of which Xbox 360-era games players want to see on the Xbox One through backward compatibility, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is now leading the pack. The company's best moment of E3 2015 was the announcement of this new functionality, something thought everyone thought [...]

Destiny will face a hard choice soon enough.
; Last week, Bungie generated some inevitable controversy by finally spelling out their plans for Destiny weapon balancing. It included a few known quantities, Auto Rifles need buffs, PvP dominators like Thorn need nerfs, but the proposed patch goes out of its way to cripple other strong weapons like Ice Breaker, [...]

Story
Introduction
I'm Editor-in-Chief of a film/tv/gaming site I founded called Unreality and I'm a video game-focused contributor over at Forbes. I think I'm a part of the first generation of journalists to skip print media entirely. I love all things media, and I'm honored that other people actually seem to want to hear my thoughts on issues in the industry. 
Bragging rights
I once wrote a post about Nicolas Cage's hair that was the 8th most popular article on the internet that day.
