Is World of Warcraft Offensive? A WoW Junkie’s Analysis

It’s no secret that I’m a World of Warcraft junkie. I don’t play as much as I used to, but Blizzard has been getting my 15 bucks a month for a very long time. I would like to think I know this game inside and out, and so you can imagine my surprise when I […]

If The Likes Of Bioshock And Braid Are Recognised As Games As Art, Then Why Isn’t Oddworld?

I love the Oddworld universe. It’s a beautiful,original world that’s full of life and leaves plenty of room for expansion. I also like the Bioshock universe. It’s a beautiful,original world that’s full of life and leaves plenty of room for expansion. The difference being between these two games is that Bioshock gained critical acclaim and […]

Or maybe you just can’t take another minute studying the life of the planet with all of the other tree-hugging inhabitants of […]

 

My Playlists, let me show you them

Video game soundtracks are part and parcel to a video game itself. With the right score and music a scene might move you to tears or make you laugh at humor and jokes you normally would not. It can also drive you bat shit insane when you listen to the same thing over and over […]

MWN Impressions: Vigilante 8 Arcade

MWN Impressions: Vigilante 8 Arcade

Today saw the release of Vigilante 8 Arcade onto the Xbox Live Marketplace. I was a huge fan of the previous two installments on the original Playstation so you can imagine my face when I saw this. Vigilante 8 Arcade is essentially a remake of the first two Vigilante 8 games in a neat package […]

 

MWN Impressions: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode Two

MWN Impressions: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode Two

The Second installment in the Penny Arcade Adventures series was released onto consoles, PCs and Macs recently and after loving the first I eagerly snatched up the second as soon as the opportunity presented itself. The point and click adventure style combined with RPG elements and the quirky, absurd and altogether charming humour are a […]

I Hate Haters… Does That Even Make Sense?

Now look. I know we’re all about having fun here at Media Whore Network, but I’ve got to get serious for a minute. It’s not something I usually do, but there’s been this thing that’s been bugging me for a long time, and I just wanted to get it off my chest. I’m normally a […]

Movie Time: Hitman and Michael Clayton Reviews

So guess what I did this past weekend?? Go to a strip club? Get a bunch of friends and take a bottle of whiskey and a pound of marijuana to the lake and go skinny dipping? Cover myself in peanut butter and let a dog lick it off of me? Actually that last one sound […]
