Giving up Gaming 3 – The Bells of Change

One. Month. It has been one month since I started cutting games back to one day a week, and good things are going down! So let’s start this update with something I am very proud of, something I’ve always wanted to do. With my new found time I was able to go ring the bell for the Salvation Army. I live in a very poor area and so I did not expect to see much come out of my community. I w...[Read More]

Giving Up Gaming 2 – Half Baked

Giving Up Gaming 2 – Half Baked

Hello again internet residents! I’ve conquered my first two weeks of this experiment. As I write this I am struck with the same thought that plagued me when I started. “You’re not completely giving up gaming, since you can play once a week. This seems like cheating. This doesn’t seem hard enough.” Well shut up negative me because this is in fact harder than you thought. Addiction...[Read More]

Smash Controller-Nintendo’s “New” Way To Play

  …Nintendo has been unable to create a new product that surpasses what they did 13 years ago. Like many of you, we here at LevelSave were chomping at the bits to try out the next iteration in the Super Smash Brothers series.

Giving up Gaming 1: It begins

Hello! My name is Chris Lock and you’re joining me for a personal experiment. I am going to give up games (mostly) for an entire year, just to see what happens. But first a little background as to why I am doing this. A few years ago I started writing for LevelSave, just for fun. The site grew and shrank, as sites do, but kept chugging along all the same. Because of my work I was able to do ...[Read More]

The “D” in Destiny is for Disappointment

The “D” in Destiny is for Disappointment

Originally posted on the author’s blog. Let me start by saying that there are a lot of really good things about Destiny. I do like the game. I’ve hit level 20 and completed all of the story missions. I played a significant amount of the competitive multiplayer and even there the game is exceptionally good. The supercharged abilities add a nice wrinkle to competitive play especially in the ob...[Read More]

Meet the Team Behind Boss Key Productions

Cliffy B’s new studio, Boss Key Productions, has just been ousted. While we know the obvious culprit of Cliff himself and most likely his wife, Lauren, being on board the team, we won’t be hearing anything about anyone else who’s working with them for quite some time. We are able to infer quite a bit just by taking a look at Boss Key’s Twitter followers, though. Starting fr...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed Unity – Moving the Conversation Forward

Gender equality controversy has once again struck the video game industry. This time Ubisoft has come under fire for what many believe are flimsy excuses regarding the absence of female character models in Ubisoft’s new Assassin’s Creed game, AC: Unity.

Microsoft E3 Press Conference: Throwing Down the Gauntlet

Microsoft E3 Press Conference: Throwing Down the Gauntlet

The new generation of consoles is here and Sony has jumped out to an early lead. It’s clear that Microsoft has been feeling the pressure as sweeping changes were rolled out for Xbox Live and Kinect is going to be taken out of the box to lower the price to $399.99. I was looking forward to what Microsoft had in store for us in their E3 press conference and I was not disappointed. Phil Spencer came ...[Read More]
