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.

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.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z (2014)
The Examined Life (of Gaming) #27
Posted Feb 16, 2014 by Roland Thompson

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.

Games that sold because of demos
The Examined Life (of Gaming) #25
Posted Dec 5, 2013 by Roland Thompson

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.

Cold Fear (2005)
The Examined Life (of Gaming) #24
Posted Nov 1, 2013 by Roland Thompson

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.

MechWarrior Retrospective, Part 4: MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries (1996)
The Examined Life (of Gaming) #23
Posted Oct 20, 2013 by Roland Thompson

It's the biggest, baddest, buggiest MechWarrior game of all time! Part 4 of the MechWarrior retrospective continues with the standalone expansion pack to MechWarrior 2 called Mercenaries.

Grand Theft Auto V (PS3): One step forward, one step back
The Examined Life (of Gaming) #22
Posted Oct 16, 2013 by Roland Thompson

Roland played Grand Theft Auto V for more than a hundred hours, a handful of which contained actual gameplay! It's flawed, rough around the edges, and rough around the middle, with many of GTA 4's best mechanics run through the strainer of Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. By which we mean ruined.

MechWarrior Retrospective, Part 3: MechWarrior 2: Ghost Bear’s Legacy (1995)
The Examined Life (of Gaming) #21
Posted Sep 22, 2013 by Roland Thompson

The expansion pack to MechWarrior 2 was released in the same year, and adds a couple of things, most of which are broken. As you might be able to tell from this review, Roland's not really a fan.

MechWarrior Retrospective, Part 1: MechWarrior (1989)
The Examined Life (of Gaming) #19
Posted Jun 6, 2013 by Roland Thompson

We're kicking off a multi-part retrospective about the MechWarrior series, one of the longest running game franchises, and definitely one of Roland's favorites. Part 1 is MechWarrior, developed by Dynamix for DOS PCs in 1989. It's the first game in the series, and the genesis of a genre.

Reservoir Dogs: The Game
The Examined Life (of Gaming) #18
Posted May 10, 2013 by Roland Thompson

The video game adaptation of Quentin Tarantino's debut film... is one of "those" games. It sucks (goddamn, does it suck), but Roland just can't help but like it.

Alpha Black Zero: Intrepid Protocol
The Examined Life (of Gaming) #17
Posted Mar 23, 2013 by Roland Thompson

It's time once again to roll out the barrel! The Budget Barrel, that is! Sci-fi tactical shooters are a rare beast, but every genre has a budget game or two if you look hard enough. In this episode, Roland reviews Alpha Black Zero, the first, last, and only game made by the Dutch (as far as anyone knows).

A History of Cover-Based Shooters (and why they suck)
The Examined Life (of Gaming) #16
Posted Mar 5, 2013 by Roland Thompson

Roland takes a look back at the original cover-based shooters, and how they've evolved into the industry standard that's used for so many games today. Then he lays out three of the big issues that seem to plague these games, using Spec Ops: The Line, Max Payne 3, and several older games as examples.
