We don’t have a Right2Game

So recently, Twin Galaxies, the guys who track videogame records, started an indiegogo campaign for a platform they call “Right2Game.” It’s a social network built entirely for gamers that will “raise awareness that avid gaming is a worthwhile, socially acceptable, and important activity that’s deserving of more understanding and support.”

They will do this with gaming Facebook that, you may have noticed in there, advertises their big media events and contests.

This is the dumbest thing I have seen in awhile, and people are actually buying into it. The sad thing is that I’m not surprised. I think we need to sober up for a moment, gaming community.

2015 Gaming Year in Review

It’s that time of year again! Every year, I write down my thoughts on my year in gaming, giving out little thumbs up to different games in different categories for fun, and this will be my third year of reflection. And yes, I’ll be playing a shit ton of things during the winter Steam sale, they’ll be mentioned next year. Don’t question this.

My year in gaming was much, much smaller than usual, as I had far more shit to do, but I still found a bunch of interesting titles to play. I went through so many indie games this time, and I discovered phone gaming in a big way too, only to be massively burnt out on it when I discovered how samey and bad so many free titles are. Most the titles I played this time were smaller in playtime, but still really interesting in concept or execution. I’m not sure there was a bad game I played all year that wasn’t a disposable gacha game on android. Well, except for two I liked for some insane reason. I plan on being more active next year, hopefully as my situation improves, so for now, here’s some of the most interesting games I played this year. And hey, some of these came out this year! Neat.
