GamerNode — The 2013 Nodie Awards

“For 2013, we’ve scaled back the extravagance of last year’s record-breaking 44 awards categories, and have moved away from the awards-show style presentation, where we list nominees and then reveal a winner. This year, we’re highlighting our top choices in each of 24 categories, many of which combine previous award categories into larger, more encompassing ones, with a focus on the big picture for each of the games considered.”

Co-Op Node PlayStation 4 Special

This past Friday, I hosted a seven-hour long livestream focused on the brand-new PlayStation 4 as a special edition of GamerNode’s Co-Op Node, which I regularly host every Tuesday night from 7-10 PM EST. During this stream, I played some Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Resogun, and FIFA 14 in addition to showing off the console’s interface and software.

Following the stream, I made sure to archive this first of what will surely be several PlayStation 4-centered episodes of Co-Op Node. You can find it, split into two parts, through the links below.

Enjoy!

Part 1 (Hours 1-5)

Part 2 (Hours 5-7)

On Being a Survivor: Thoughts on The Last of Us

As many of you lovely gamers are aware, there’s this little game by Naughty Dog called The Last of Us that’s been out for a while and causing one heck of a discussion. The title’s being considered by many for Game of the Year, and the ending is something of a shocker to most — if not all — who’ve completed it. The following are my thoughts on the game and the ending specifically, so obviously here is a spoiler warning in case you haven’t witnessed it yourself. I’ll even put it in bold words after this paragraph to show I mean business.

*SPOILER WARNING! The plot of The Last of Us — specifically the ending — is broken down and analyzed here. Don’t read  further if you intend to finish the game and haven’t yet!*
