Review-Preview: Stick it to The Man!

Today, I would like to announce my new YouTube channel, GBNPlays. I’ve actually been interested in this for quite a while but only recently decided to make the plunge and learn video editing. I have all of the pieces in order and can begin putting out videos as quickly as I can capture and upload them. …

Shifting Review Scores

If you pay any attention to the mainstream gaming press, you’ve probably heard about the mess that is Battlefield 4. Ever since the game released on next-gen consoles, there has been a constant crap-storm of commentary: How could DICE release a game in this state? It’s not worth buying! Go get your money back! All of this underlined …

What are Games Worth?

console-price-cuts-ps3-x360-wii

Syl recently published an excellent post asking how we defined the value of our video games. Her discussion was drawn from Episode 30 of our Game On podcast. Our conversation there stemmed from the recent supporter packs offered for Trove by Trion Worlds. The general consensus was that, be it Trove, Star Citizen, or any …

Remembering Fun

Positivity means rainbow ponies!

I decided to go back to World of Warcraft. Just kidding! But that does make a good first line to a return post, doesn’t it? Since the last time I posted on this blog, something I intend to rectify beginning now, I’ve spent a good amount of time considering our attitudes as gamers. Now, we’re …

Bloggers disappearing and why I’m one of them. But not really.

In light of the recent conversation about the state of MMO blogs, I thought it was about time I popped in and reminded you that I’m not dead. See? LA DEE DA DEE DA! Now that you know I’m not a zombie, I think it’s about time for an update! To get to the topic …

Site Hacked, Probably Through Spam Comments, Fixed Now.

In case you happened to find this blog looking for something to help you pee easier, let me clarify things a little bit. We don’t actually sell prescription drugs here. Sorry. I do have a cautionary tale for you. See, for the past few months I’ve noticed a Google search of “gamebynight” turned up a …

Reflections on Our Interview With Mark Jacobs

Mark+Jacobs+resized

So here’s big news I thought I shared but didn’t. MMO Radio was picked up by MMORPG.com just over a month ago and rebranded Game On: Epic Slant Press Edition. (And we get to maintain creative control!). That makes us the official podcast for the site, which is quite a bump from what either Adam …

Defiance: The PC MMO Totally Unprepared for PC!

thumbnail-defiance_boxart_tall-296x346

I suppose it’s about time I share some of my thoughts on the latest entry to our MMO library, Defiance. My enthusiasm for this game has ebbed and flowed during the PR cycle but never much broke lukewarm. To be honest, I felt like an outlier. When most of the internet seemed to join in …

Review: SimCity (2013)

SimCity-Region-View

SimCity and I have had a sporadic relationship over the years. Before this latest iteration, I recall playing SimCity 3000 and, being 13 at the time, finding it too complex not be overwhelmed. Yet there was something there that fascinated me. Even earlier than that, I recall playing the first entry in the series on …
