Gameumentary is a project I’ve been following for the past couple weeks, bringing me even more documentary goodness to dive into after a hard day at the office.

In the wake of Sony completely losing their online service for over a week, I just have to ask one potentially-obvious-but-maybe-not question: Do we as gamers really need online? In this modern era of gaming where so much is convenient and instantaneous, is online service a necessity, the future of gaming, a perk that we take for grant...[Read More]
