About Author

Atlas
I started writing articles for the homepage in 2014. My favorite articles to write were articles which collectively are known as my retrospective series, "Let's Go Retro." After roughly 20 articles of mine were promoted in one month, I was given the position of "Writer." I wrote for awhile, eventually became a Diet Moderator, and later became a Super Moderator. I still enjoy to write and will put out an article on occasion when i have time. Nowadays, my time is very limited due to studies.

    A mysterious first-person horror game called "Sad Satan" has surfaced from the deepest, darkest corners of the Internet. Perhaps it was spawned by the Devil himself.
  4. Upcoming Massacre Simulator, "Hatred"

    We all have heard about shooting-sprees and massacres, but what if someone was to make a video game about them? Well, a game developer based in Gliwice, Poland known as “Destructive Creations” decided to do just that. Enter the isometric perspective shooter video game, Hatred. While some would think that this game would place the player in the roll of a SWAT team officer or a counter-terrorist, it actually places the player in control of the mass-shooter protagonist. Hatred was first...

  7. Rumor: Destiny Is Coming to PC

    Less than a week ago, the Destiny Public Beta came to a close. While the Beta was active, players were able to fight against AI enemies as well as other real players to gain an idea of what to expect when the game fully releases. As excitement for Destiny was building, it was often said that it would be a console-exclusive game. As of roughly six hours ago, rumors began to surface that Destiny will in fact be coming to PC & Steam with a tentative March 2015 release. While I personally do...
  8. 2K United Kingdom Tweets BioShock Teaser

    Just earlier this morning, 2K United Kingdom made a BioShock-related teaser via Twitter. The teaser itself includes the picture above with the caption, “Oooo, what COULD this mean?!” Giving no extra hints, the teaser leaves the community open to suggest an answer to the developer’s question. Most people would agree, the obvious point of the teaser is to suggest new BioShock content in the coming future whether it comes in the form of DLC for Infinite or a whole new game entirely....

  10. League of Legends: Action Being Taken Against Third-Party Skin-Site Fraud

    Over the past few months, a trend involving the purchasing of special codes for additional gaming content had swept across the gaming community. Perhaps the most familiar manifestation of said trend was the buying and selling of codes to obtain Spectrum camo’s for Call of Duty: Ghosts. While these sorts of transactions have occurred sporadically in the past, some would say that the buying & selling of normally-exclusive content has recently become much more prominent than it ever was...
  11. A Treat For Hardcore Retro-Gamers

    With summer days at my own disposal, I like to bust out some of my old gaming consoles to experience some nostalgia. In fact, I particularly enjoy playing games that were popular before my time to get a small taste of what “the good old days” were like. While most retro gamers usually go hunting at garage sales and flea markets to search for classic games, others may begin renting these old treasures instead of buying them. A subscription-based rental service for retro games known as...
  12. Unreal Engine 4 Voted Best Gaming Engine

    Within the Develop 100: The Tech List, Unreal Engine 4 was just recently voted to be the best gaming engine. Unreal Engine 4 was developed by Epic Games over the course of roughly nine years.

  15. Animator at Naughty Dog Working on a Re-Visitation to Dante's Inferno

    One part of video games I always enjoyed is concept art. Most concept art normally comes from the creators of a respective game or is produced by freelance artists aiding in the creation of a game. Going further, if one were to browse the internet for a short while, they may come across some fan-made art for a particular video game of their choosing. Usually fan-art consists of portraits of a game’s characters or perhaps even a fan-made side-story or fan-made sequel to a game. On the...
