Welcome to 2007, the year the FPS genre came back to life. For a bit. Then died again. The rest of the games industry would soon follow.

Proof of life. This one was fairly involved.
It’s Roland’s third annual Best and Worst of Gaming video, with an idiosyncratic award naming convention lifted from Penny Arcade (just like Yahtzee did).
RAW FEED: WWE TLC 2014, Marathon 20th Anniversary, Hobbit Part 3 - Life Sucks and Then You Die Podcast
Solo podcast, about WWE TLC 2014, Marathon’s 20th anniversary, and the Hobbit part 3.
If you need like, to kill some time or something.
Find yourself starting back. Escape will make me God.
I guess I’m really doing this. Good grief.
The other flavor of this Game Fuel twofer doesn’t need reviewing because it’s the same formula since the OG Game Fuel.
I don’t like Doritios. So.
Just in time to miss Halloween, Roland reviews a game that’s legitimately scary… for how bad it is.
A quick after-action report on PRGE 2014. Would have been up sooner but apparently YouTube holds a grudge.
Quod erat demonstratum, eh mofuckas? If you think this video is too confrontational, suck it! Roland works for a living, and doesn’t have time to mince words on the internet. So let’s rock and roll, and say your piece in the comments section.
Body Harvest is a game where you travel back in time to stop an alien invasion force that’s come to earth to harvest the human population.
In which QyourfaceX and I bitch about Wrestling for 2 god damn hours. We talk about the entire card of WWE Battleground 2014, we talk about lots of tangential stuff, and we talk about the WWE Netwo…
A really long video about games and fun stuff I found at Goodwill, playing Spintires, Age of Wonders III, building a Pentium II legacy machine, having no free time, and saying “in any case” after e…
Josh “XeCuTioNR” Davis sent me a Dazzle in a box, with a game tacked on. How cool is that?
Bland unboxing video and obnoxious jokes to follow. Yeehaw.
Instead of reviewing Watch_Dogs(TM), I decided to review modern gaming, and Ubisoft. Fair warning, it is not a positive review.
Go fuck yourself, Ubisoft. And for the rest of you, thanks for wat…
Some weird review of a weird smart phone peripheral. Proper description coming soon, maybe, if I feel like it.
It’s Edutainment Month! So enjoy this video, in which Roland tries to string together a bunch of random clips of human suffering into seven minutes of light-comedy.
There’s a new Dragon Ball Z game, right on schedule! We’ve had one of these just about every year for the last ten years, but the last few have been terrible. With Battle of Z, a new developer and style of game play attempt to mix things up. So let’s see how well that works.
It’s an Examined Life (of Gaming) awards show! Join Roland for an angry talk (or “rant”, if you’d prefer) about the best and worst games of 2013, including Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Grand Theft Auto V, Rogue Legacy, Resident Evil 6, Takedown: Red Sabre, and Rising Storm!
This episode is about games that sold because of demos. Not because of their own demos, but because they had demos of other games packed in.
Just in time for Halloween (if you’re in the continental US, and watching literally in the next few hours), Roland takes a sidelong look at Cold Fear, another Resident Evil ripoff in the vein of Blue Stinger, Dino Crisis, or Deep Fear (two of which are exactly the same game as this), and realizes his irrational hatred of Ubisoft was pretty rational after all.
