Star Citizen is said to be delayed indefinitely – Maybe it’s not as bad as it sounds?

I’m hoping that this isn’t as bad as it looks, because the title of this article from Techspot says that “Star Citizen” has been put back indefinitely…Well, here’s a fast recap for those who are not familiar with “Star Citizen”. It’s a crowdfunded game from the developer Chris Roberts (the director for Cloud Imperium Games) whom started the idea of the… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

A take on the two rumored upcoming Metroid games

There has been some rumors going around that, not one, but two “Metroid” games (Retro Studios and Climax Studios are the rumored developers behind the games) will be released in the near future (one game is said to be shown at this year’s edition of E3). That’s great news (if true) for the fans with no doubt. However, the previous… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

The issue with reporting in video games – Dishonesty and disappointing moral compasses

I’ve only been writing for The Gaming Ground for a few months now, but even before then, I’ve noticed a trend in the reporting of video games by video game journalists. You see,there has been a loss of trust with mainstream video game journalists, and its due to their control of the news and the dishonesty they’ve displayed with their… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

This is why Arrow season 5 has been so disappointing so far

Arrow has promised a lot to fans for it’s 5th season, especially to make up for how terrible the ending was for Arrow Season 4. The Season 4 finale was comprised of Damian Darhk and Oliver Queen punching each other as if they were in a WWE match to say the least, and it didn’t sit well with critics or… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Why does Mass Effect: Andromeda´s female characters look so ugly? – Bioware SJW design 101

I am most likely far from the only one who has noticed that there is something very odd about the female characters in Bioware´s upcoming action/RPG game “Mass Effect: Andromeda” (the game is set for a release in March to PS4, Xbox One and PC – NA on the 21st of March, and EU on the 23rd of March). Well,… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

The Pewdiepie Disney aftermath – The mainstream media nailed Pewdiepie to the cross for clicks

Rather recently Felix Kjellberg, otherwise known as Pewdiepie, played a prank on his YouTube channel. In this prank, he paid two boys to deliver a message reading “Death to all Jews”. Since then Maker Studios, owned by Disney, has dropped Felix’s channel for the controversial video. Recently, Variety reported that a YouTube spokesperson said that they are cancelling Felix’s show… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Did just Polygon´s Patrick Stafford threat Brad Glasgow’s career for making fun of Kotaku?

You know, for the last couple of years. I have seen quite a few crazy Twitter rants (Tauriq Moosa and Arthur Chu anyone?), personal attacks (like that one time when Gizmodo went after Palmer Luckey) and more or less threats from people who work for big Gaming sites such as Kotaku and Polygon (not to mention plenty of conflict of interest cases). Nevertheless, over… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

NeoGAF is really salty about Konami´s new Bomberman game “Bombergirl”

Ah, NeoGaf, so we meet again, how…nice. Truth be told though, I have avoided NeoGaf like the plague for years as I find them to be the Tumblr of Gaming forums (N4G + Imzy + Tumblr = NeoGaf). Furthermore, a lot of NeoGaf´s users love and even embrace censorship (especially in the West). So I can´t really say that it´s my… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Western developers and representatives attack #GamerGate again

Yeah, yeah, another attack on #GamerGate. Surprised? You know, every time I think I’m done talking about GG and done having to defend them, articles like this pop up that are just so insane in their composition that I just can’t avoid talking about it. I mean, I shouldn’t have to defend GG, really I shouldn’t. As all the information… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Did Jed Whitaker just do a DMCA take down on one of William Hicks Youtube videos?

I (Robin Ek, TGG) had a feeling that something would happen in the case with Jed Whitaker (Destructoid writer) and William Hicks (Heat Street writer), because Heat Street published a post about Jed Whitaker and his Nazi rants about JonTron not so long ago (the post was published on the 31st of January). Well, I was right. You see, just… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Despite evidence, Gaming could be misrepresented as a mental health disorder

In 2015, ‘Internet Gaming Disorder’ (IGD) was added to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders 5 (DSM-V) as a preliminary diagnosis. Its preliminary status meant that a set of diagnostic criteria was proposed for the disorder, but encouraged researchers to explore the validity of the diagnosis before making it official. Towards the end of 2016, things started becoming… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

VR-Porn is the future of porn

***NOT SAFE FOR WORK!*** It´s now the year 2017, so it´s time for VR to hit it’s true stride, because all through 2016, a lot of people talked about VR as an overhyped “gimmick”.Sure, the current VR hardware and software are far from flawless, and there is a lot left to be desired. However, VR has come quite a long… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

So over the past few days, Guerrilla Games released a story trailer for a game which I’ve been excited for since I saw it at the PS4 Pro conference a few months ago: “Horizon Zero Dawn”. With this trailer, we got a few more story details, but just enough to leave us intrigued without dumping it all on us. Today… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!
