Minecraft has been sold to Microsoft.

Sep 15 2014 06:34 PM | Milenko in Articles

As many of you may have heard, today is a dark day in the world of block based simulation games with no story line and tons of user generated content. That's right, Mojang has been sold to Microsoft. Notch, founder of Mojang recieved a cool 2.5 BILLION dollars and is stepping away from the company as it is inevitably consumed by the PC software/Xbox touting Juggernaut. Here's hoping Microsoft doesn't kill off another fantastic studio in it's prime. For those who don't know what I'm getting at, let this quote mix around for a bit: "I hope Microsoft doesn’t waste Mojang’s talent, or ruin what makes them special. It can happen, but it’s pretty Rare."

Super Smash Bros 3DS Early Bird Demo

Sep 12 2014 09:17 PM | Brackner in Modern Gaming

Today at Nintendo's Treehouse event, they revealed that Club Nintendo members with Platinum status and who were opted in for e-mail notifications would receive four demo codes for the new Smash Bros 3DS. Unfortunately, I had opted out of the e-mails ages ago, but luckily Gamecollecting Network member, RockTheShazbot, gave me one of his codes (thanks again, man!). Also, luckily for everybody else, the demo goes out to all next Friday (9/19). I figured I'd do a write up here on my thoughts about the game. I am not a big competitive player or anything, but I am familiar with the scene and some of the technical aspects. However, I mostly just play Smash for fun! Check out the full article to read about my experience.

I gotta get this off my chest.

Aug 31 2014 02:41 PM | Milenko in Articles

Hey everybody. I just want to rant for a bit. All day I've been hearing/reading about the "gaming press" painting gamers in bad light. I want to explain that we're a small site with a chatroom, two podcasts (one independently contributed) and a forum where we talk about gaming related stuff. I'm a gamer, I love video games. If you write for the 'gaming press' and feel I shouldn't brand myself as a gamer because "gamers are scum" or "uptight nerds" you can sincerely go fuck yourself with a rake. We're gamers, we game. If you don't like it.. Feel free to find a new hobby to try and suck the passion from for personal gain.

I'm going to sit here and play my games as a gamer.
