With every new generation of gaming comes a few new gadgets and fads. With the seventh generation we saw the move to motion controls. Sony released the Sixaxis controller and later the PlayStation Move, Microsoft went the way of the Kinect camera system, and Nintendo led the charge with the Wiimote and Wii motion plus.
How often do you wish you could have the body of Kratos? Maybe with more of a tan and with less facial paint or tattoos, but those abs… right? Or have you ever looked at Marcus Fenix and thought to yourself “Wow he definitely never skips leg day…” Anyone ever looked at Zero Suit Samus and wish they looked that good in a one piece jumpsuit? Perhaps you’ve thought of hitting a gym… no wrong kind of gym you don’t get a badge for this one. You think Mario ever looks at his brother Green Mario and wishes he was maybe a little taller and thinner like him?
We got tired of wading through pages and pages of advertisements to see other websites’ list of sexy game ladies, so we made our own! Here are the YeahDude picks for the top ten sexiest women in gaming (in no particular order)!
The open world concept in gaming has become a staple in the industry. There are so many games attempting the open world idea that it is hard to keep count honestly. Well, Ubisoft decided to take Tom Clancy to Bolivia and to the open world environment with Ghost Recon Wildlands. The game is a massive military shooter, focusing on having a group of friends to play with and accomplish taking out the drug cartel currently controlling the small country.
My first introduction into the Star Ocean series was Star Ocean Till the End of Time (Star Ocean 3 from here on out) on PlayStation 2. This was at a time where my life was a strange mess, and honestly, video games were the only thing that kept me from taking a very dark turn. Constant battling with depression and anxiety kept me from doing a large number of things I enjoyed, but throughout everything, video games were a constant supply of a delightful combination of enjoyment and escape. Between dealing with the aftermath of my parents’ divorce and a slew of emotional and physical torture during high school, my deep and complete enjoyment of video games is one of the biggest reasons I am here today.
Late February and early March of 2017 is, without a doubt, giving the gaming industry a much needed boost of vitality.
While many readers are surely lost within the wilds of Nintendo’s latest installment of the Legend of Zelda series: Breath of the Wild, or facing off against the mechanical dystopian hoards in the follow up to the cult classic title Square Enix’s Nier, appropriately titled Nier Automata, there is another game that was released at the tail end of February that demands the attention of these two big-name titles and refuses to be left in the shadows.
My brother and I initially got Phantasy Star Online around Christmas time in 2002 for the GameCube. When we got home it started a love for the game that still burns as fiercely as it did fourteen years ago (shit I feel old). Even now just thinking about the fun times I had makes me want to hook up my Wii and start a new character from scratch!
Star Ocean Integrity and Faithlessness is the fifth main entry into the Star Ocean series. As the name might clue you in on the games are a combination of sci-fi and fantasy. The series as a whole has a checkered past with the second game being loved by most while the third and fourth main titles are disliked by almost just as many. I’m one of those outliers who has enjoyed every main game released thus far and even more so since I love the twist in Star Ocean 3. That being said what does Star Ocean 5 have in store for long time fans and newcomers?
