Hunter attended GSES before attending Jesuit. He is an avid reader of IGN, Destructoid and Polygon. If it is a decent game he has probably played it several times. You may hear him on the Roundup Podcast or you might have seen him rant about games on twitter. All things aside Hunter KNOWS games. With a passion towards Journalism, Hunter intends to go to the world renown Journalism School at the University of Missouri (Mizzou). You can find all of the articles about games that Dr. Degen didn't want you to see at www.thehunterofgaming.com
58,981 words and counting. To many this may appear to be a random number pulled out of thin air. To me personally, it is something much more.

*Warning Graphic Content Ahead (Blood/Gore) The first person genre for consuming video games and cinematic experiences was arguably brought to life among the masses in December of 1993.

This normally leads to a game series 'death' in a sense. So when developers announce that they will be concluding the series with one final title, the response from the public is always mixed. One camp doesn't necessarily...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7nRTF2SowQ After Infinity Ward announced the next Call of Duty game, DICE and Electronic Arts were quick to point out that the next Battlefield game would be premiered the Friday after the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare reveal. Several developers at DICE even trash talked the Call of Duty trailer claiming, "The internet will melt when the Battlefield trailer is released." For...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeF3UTkCoxY This past Monday (5/2), Infinity Ward released the reveal trailer for the next game in the Call of Duty franchise. The next title, Infinite Warfare, has everything from an enormous robot grappling with a tank to combat in space. I highly suggest watching the trailer before reading this article, though. I personally felt excited and disappointed by the 'gameplay' that was displayed in the...
Spoilers for Ghost in the Shell are present. Connor Thomas wrote a phenomenal piece about "Racism in Film: Movies and Society Part 8." In it he mentioned that "in no other place can racism project itself across so many people's minds" so blatantly. He provided an excellent analysis of the history and overall trends set in Hollywood and some harrowing statistics....
"Some day the flame will fade and only embers will remain." This exact quote has been rehashed and muttered by countless characters in the Dark Souls franchise. The climatic end to this trilogy is a spiraling descent into utter madness which forces the player to examine the game worlds darkest motifs. For the uniformed, the Dark Souls series is...
