3 Video Games That Did The Best Job Of Moving From 2D To 3D [MUO Gaming]

Some video games stand the test of time. Sure, they may have started as 2D games, but they were able to evolve and get with the times. There is, and always will be, a place for 2D, but to be successful, a franchise needs to move on and enter the realm of 3D. I am not talking about 3D as in glasses and images popping off the screen. I am talking about a three-dimensional world for the characters in the game.

8 ‘Rage Quit’ Videos Guaranteed To Make You Laugh [MUO Gaming]

I’m a gamer, and like all gamers I have particular tastes. I have adored some video games through the decades, and would count playing them as highly memorable experiences. I have also played some games I ended up hating, and have sought to force the memory of those to the back of my mind. Video games can frustrate very easily. Whether because they’re too difficult, too annoying, or just generally bad.

4 Things That Really Annoy Me About Diablo 3 [MUO Gaming]

Last week we talked about Diablo 3, and some of the amazing things that I love about it. This week, I am going to have to dip my toe into the dark side. After all, as much as I love the game, and will continue to play it, there are some pretty serious issues that need to be addressed. I intended to write one article and fill it with both love and hate, but it turned out I loved too much about the game. Is the same true for the things I hate?

It’s hard to say where the gaming industry is heading, but freemium games are likely playing a big part in it. Where traditional games ask for your sixty dollars up front, freemium games take their cut through micro-payment, and advertising systems. It’s shown to be a popular business model, and although the overall quality of these games is not always on par with their big-budget counterparts, they’re quickly catching up.

How to Set Up Your Wii for Homebrew Using Letterbomb

In ancient times, running homebrew software required owning a specific game and corrupting its save data to run an exploit. It was complicated. The most recent hack, which has been working for a year now, essentially gives you access to Homebrew in a couple of clicks. It’s called LetterBomb. Here’s how to use it to install the Wii HomeBrew Channel and explore an entirely new world of free Wii software.

If you want to casually play a game in a windowed mode where you can watch other things and talk to friends through email or IMs, you should be able to.

5 Fan-Built Alternatives To Famous Video Games

Gamers can be a real drag. I know, because I am one. We want the best game possible and have a tendency to be ungrateful if everything was not done exactly how we’d like. This often results in pointless moaning but there are times when it births something real and new. It’s hard to tell when this will happen – popular games have more fans who may eventually decide to transform the game.

5 Video Games That Would Make Great TV Shows

When Halo 4 gets released on Nov. 6, 2012, it will bring with it episodic content almost televisual in nature. In order to build shared experiences that players will talk about around the water cooler, the game’s developer 343 Industries will be delivering free weekly mini-missions which tell side-stories to the main mission, all via Xbox Live. While this isn’t a television show based on the Halo series, it borrows much from the idea of mixing the two media.

The 10 Greatest Hits Of Zero Punctuation Reviews

Video game reviews are notoriously hard to judge, as a genre that one person loves will be hated by another. Using websites which draw reviews from numerous sources in order to give an average score, such as Metacritic, is one solution. Alternatively you could forgo all other reviews and just take the word of Ben ‘Yahtzee’ Croshaw as gospel.

Over the past few years, Angry Birds has been the predominant mobile game that everyone has heard about. I mean, they’re even making an Angry Birds feature film. It’s been rather polarizing, too, with people either loving or hating the game – very few people find a middle ground. Other games, like Plants vs. Zombies, have also gained traction with the casual gaming crowd.

With the new Disney/Pixar film Wreck-It Ralph coming out, I’ve been on a little bit of a retro gaming kick. What’s my personal favorite?
