DGC – Magrunner & Portal

davegame

Wow, it’s been a while since there last was a Dave Corner hasn’t it? Working on my thesis interfered with my motivation to write this weekly column on various aspects of videogaming, but I came to realise that it’s important to keep in practise, as the style of academic writing is quite different to my more personal stream of consciousness fare. So The Dave Corner is back for the foreseeable future, and I hope you all will join me through whatever topics pique my interest. Read the rest of this entry »

The App Wrap Up – March 2nd, 2013

appwrap

Hello GM readers, and welcome to another installment of the App Wrap Up! This week had many games to sift through, and many that looked interesting alas did not have a trailer to show off their gameplay. Luckily there were a handful that I could discuss, as that is the point of this article, despite how brief that discussion might be. Read the rest of this entry »

GM Returns

snippets492014

Hi everyone!

So we would say that the more astute of you may have noticed that the last update (an installment of Snippets) was back on the 22nd of January. That would be a lie though, as our site actually has been down since that time. We don’t know why either. The host said that everything was running beautifully from their side, and it only seems by a fluke that the site is back.

Regardless of why, we apologize for our absence. Snippets, and the App Wrap Up will return next week. There will be more impressions and critique pieces (one posted shortly after this update), and we’re working on bringing The Dave Corner back soon. Expect to see more articles in the coming months, and extra stability as we search for a better place to host our website.

Again, we’re sorry for being away, and we’re excited to be back. Let’s talk gaming!

It looks like 2015 is finally kicking off with a show of regular creativity. Read the rest of this entry »

The App Wrap Up – 13th January, 2015

Hey hey loyal GM readers, and welcome to another installment of the App Wrap Up! It’s a couple weeks into 2015, and the iOS releases have finally started trickling out again. Actually, trickling is probably not the best description. This week the floodgates were opened and a cavalcade of releases washed over unsuspecting iPhone and iPad users. We’ve got some interesting picks amongst the flotsam and jetsam (I’ve always wanted to use flotsam and jetsam in a sentence). Read the rest of this entry »

A Bird Story – Critique

Abirdstory

It’s difficult to discuss A Bird Story without discussing To the Moon. While To to Moon was a much longer narrative (taking hours to complete while A Bird Story takes a little over one), both share the DNA of Kan Gao as designer and composer. There is an emotional weight, especially near the end of both as the curtain is revealed and the core of what these stories are truly about is laid bare for the player. Read the rest of this entry »
