Just wanted to say, happy New Year’s, people of 2015. We are now in the future. Now we wait for news on the new Mass Effect.

That is all.

Nah kidding, I’m going to show the lineup of new series that will be coming to DHGB! Continue reading

Design Defense: No Man’s Sky Part 1: Progression

Introduction (Skip if you’d like)

I had an idea a while back to show the other side of design decisions in games. You know, many times people won’t like a design decision, but I wanted to give a wider scope of reasons you should or shouldn’t like those designs.

To pilot this new series, I feel I should do something that has bothered me for a while, and is also a largely watched topic: No Man’s Sky and its progression. Continue reading

Dog’s Summer

Well, my ESO guild is at 130 members, been staying busy with that. I’ve also been having fun with the Steam sales, and the Summer Sale is still on full thrust, so GOTTA GET DEM GAMEZ. Got the Civ 5 collection, and been playing Just Cause 2 and the multiplayer mod for it as well. I also spent time Continue reading

Space Engine: Gotta See All Dem SHINY THINGZ!

I recently found an amazing piece of tech, which is giving me quite a bit of fun, called Space Engine. It essentially simulates an entire universe, using real data where it can, and procedurally generating content everywhere else. It looks amazing on high settings, and, just like the real universe, is silly massive. There’s billions of galaxies, each galaxy with trillions or billions of stars, most stars have planets, comets and asteroids orbiting them, those planets have moons around them, and all of those things you can go down to the very surface and explore in Continue reading

New Dog House Gaming Blog Banner!

If you’ve been reading this blog for a little bit, you’ve very likely noticed the new banner. If you’re new to the blog (I love you the same), you’ve very likely noticed the banner.

I had this idea a little while ago to have like a sarcastic banner that had negative and troll quotes about my blog — like how video game trailers will have quotes from critics about how good the game is. I decided to reverse this, and so this new banner was born. Continue reading

X: Rebirth Is Gonna Release! Now Here’s What I Hope For

First, before you read any further, you should have checked out the new trailer and videos on the official X Universe Channel. Yes, it has a release date set for this year and this planet, but America is getting it after everybody else. 😦 xD I’m kidding it’s just a few days. Oh wait, that’s like five more Guild Wars levels. Oh man we’re getting screwed dangit Germany! It’s in November sometime. Look it up. If I touch Google I’ll naturally type in “icanhascheezburger”, and this article will never go beyond the draft stage. Continue reading

Steam Sales Rock

I decided to start doing those short quick posts I used to do, which described general randomness and my thoughts on general randomness, in random terms. Of course, my blog didn’t have 300 views a day when I did three-sentence posts of what I sucked at in Anarchy Online or a couple paragraphs on why I generally liked Hunger Games but wished it was more brutal all 28 Days/Weeks later style, but knew that was not gonna happen because the majority of people who watches it would flip out if all of the combat was 28 Weeks later style.
