RPG of the Year – 2011

I was hoping this year would be a little more eventful and tough to pick a top 5, but it really isn’t. Sure, the top 5 are EXCELLENT and there are a few good runner ups, but there are also a lot of terrible MMOs and poorly thought out mobile games. There are 81 games […]

WPO reacts to iPhone 5 Announcement

So this morning three of the Wonderpod crew were sitting around watching Apple announce stuff. Obviously the iPhone 5 was the big thing. Being the sarcastic and humorous bunch we are things got a funny and possibly offensive. So in the true spirit of WPO I give you our reaction in screen shots. From that […]

SimCity Announce Trailer

I love the SimCity Franchise. Sure it has had it’s up’s and downs. It has been over shadowed by it’s cousin The Sims, but it’s the Maxxis franchise that started it all. This trailer just gives us a glimpse, but it has me wanting ┬áto see more. So are you looking forward to building cities […]

How An Achievement Caused Introspection – Skyrim

Skyrim is a fantastic game where even something as minor as sidequesting can be fun, interesting, and even a well told story all in its own. Some of the sidequests in Skyrim are much more entertaining than the main storyline…so much so that the main storyline pales in comparison to it. This seems to be […]

5 Things I Hate About Skyrim

Skyrim has hit most gamers’ Game of the Year for 2011, if not their personal top 10 list. In saying that, I must admit it’s one of the finest games I’ve ever played. There are a few problems, however, that could have been ironed out to make the game even more fantastic and unfortunately these […]

The Fantastic World of Japanese Games – Episode 5

Sometimes the mere mentioning that a game had RPG elements was enough to shelf the idea to bring it over. You’re going to see me pulling this excuse a lot because for every Mega Man, Castlevania, TMNT, Mario, Zelda, and whatever title that came out, you’d have a dozen or so RPGs that didn’t quite […]

The Fantastic World of Japanese Games – Episode 2

When playing Japanese SNES games on an emulator, often there are obvious and not so obvious reasons why a game may not have come out to America. The best way to think about it is was it an RPG, did it have suggestive themes, and did it have any sort of following here in America? […]

Skyrim – Teaching Us How Frail And Weak We Are Through Gaming

When you play an RPG, you’re constantly told that you’re the chosen one, but still made to feel weak, even though you have incredible powers. It’s a constant contradiction. Look, in the Breath of Fire games, you can change into A FUCKING DRAGON, but often there are forces far more powerful than you and your […]

Attention Lemmings: Apple Needs Your Money

This morning while doing paperwork, I tuned into the Apple rally to see if they were in fact unleashing the iphone 5 on the world. I had a twenty dollar bet going with an apple head buddy of mine on it. I was convinced from the start that it would be another 4 with minor […]
