Are We Gamers Becoming Harder To Please Nowadays?

1d 18h ago ... I ask this question, because to me, I notice that nearly every new release on the consoles and PC so far, there has been so much hate surrounding each game. Is it because we are expecting too much? Is it the developers releasing games too early, with problems at release (example: Battlefield 4, Driveclub, Destiny). Is it because we get sucked in to the hype train so much that when the actual...

When Did Graphics Stop Mattering?

1d 20h ago ... Quite some time ago, I began to notice gamers exclaiming how "graphics don't matter," and phrases like "it's the gameplay, not the graphics!" Well, I say, since when did gamers stop caring about how their games look, and why has it become almost politically incorrect as a gamer to demand both great gameplay and amazing-looking,eye-popping colors and textures whilst playing said awesome gameplay...

#GamerGate #StopGamerGate2014? More Like Print Media Versus Viral Media

3d ago ... So, I've been thinking of what could be the real issue behind the recent string of places like Giant Bomb, Gamespot, Eurogamer, Polygon (although that site has a two fold reason), and now Game Informer, have come out against GamerGate because one person somehow represents hundreds of thousands of people. Outside of the fact that people simply do not do research enough into this situation, I tri...

Phil Fish Was Never Cut Out for the Gaming Industry

3d ago ... You can't really go on any given video game website without hearing the name Phil Fish. That's right everyone, I'm going there. For today I will be tackling one of the most outspoken and downright despicable figures to ever show up in the gaming industry. To be honest, I have been quietly seething with much anticipated fury to be able to finally write out my impression of Phil Fish. With all th...

So I found something that bugs me about the Bay 2 reactions...

4d ago ... So I found out something a little bit ago that really put things into perspective for me, regarding Bayonetta 2, and I just want to talk about that a little....[keep in mind, I'm an owner of the first game, on PS3] A long while back, a little gem called Mad World made its way to the Wii. This game, despite being on a system that was infested mostly with casuals who didn't pay attention to c...

Mass Effect 4 - My Theory For The Next Gen Trilogy

7d ago ... Mass effect was one of the greatest new ip's released on the last generation of consoles. Now, as we await news on the next instalment, here is a theory I felt would be the natural evolution of the franchise. I hope you enjoy reading this theory and share your views. This will obviously contain spoilers! Mass Effect 3’s Leviathan DLC showed us the origin of the Reapers - they were the result...

Batman Arkham Rises ideas.

7d ago ... So as many of you know Rocksteady's highly anticipated sequel and possible final chapter of the Arkham series was pushed to 2015 instead of releasing the intended date of 2014. Now when I heard Arkham Knight was going to be in 2014 I thought the series was pulling an AC on us and going yearly but it got pushed possibly due to hardware. This led me to think that maybe after Arkham Knight the...

"Problems" Week One Debut Post: Problems with Unoriginality In Gaming

7d ago ... This being my first post as a game journalist/blogger I want to make a couple of things clear: 1) These are all my own opinions, if you disagree, please feel free to contact me and have an educated discussion about it. Don't just call me names and run off. 2) There are going to be several blog posts between my game reviews. The way my reviews will work is there will be newer games and als...

Destructive Creations' 'Hatred' Takes Video Game Violence to New Levels

8d ago ... As gamers, we are not strangers to violence in our favourite forms of entertainment; as a matter of fact, it's present in almost every video game today and a main selling point for the hottest titles. Video game violence has always generated a tonne of controversy, but more often than not, it was discounted as just part of the experience. We saw Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics take the Tomb Ra...

Don't Get Me Wrong, But...

9d ago ... There's that familiar old adage again. The one we, who find ourselves in the crossfire of popular opinion, must employ as we dane to approach a more meaningful discussion about this young, developing medium. Don't get me wrong, I love all platforms. Don't get me wrong, I'm not biased. Don't get me wrong, but I see no benefit in swinging such an empty disclaimer ahead of our insights as th...

My Top 8 Assassin's Creed Moments [SPOILERS]

9d ago ... [Note: This Top 8 is 100% my own opinion and I don’t intend any of you to take it as fact. Only take it as interesting food for thought and I hope you enjoy. Also SPOILERS! Play these games first!] With Assassin’s Creed Rogue and Assassin’s Creed Unity on the horizon, I started thinking about the past games. And with that I remembered some of the best parts that made me love the series. So t...

Shadowiness of Mordor Contracts

11d ago ... I love late night talkshows, most insomniacs do. Nothing beats a good monolog at the end of a long day. Well, maybe a few things, but let’s stay on track. While I love a good monolog, that’s usually as far as I get. When the interviews start, I usually “start flipping”. That’s almost a Larry Sanders reference! Never mind. You see, I don’t really care about what some celebrity is coming to plug...

Falling Into The Trap Of Playing Cult Classics

12d ago ... During the spring and summer of 2014 I decided to go into my videogame backlog. My backlog at the time was deep and had a large number of games listed as follows: Max Payne (entire series), Vanquish, Tomb Raider (2013), Alan Wake, Bayonetta , Fallout: New Vegas, God of War: Ascension, Gears of War: Judgement, Ratchet and Clank HD collection, Jak and Daxter collection and many old games for the...

A Complete Kingdom Hearts Retrospective

16d ago ... Kingdom hearts is arguably the biggest IP to come out of japan for quite some time, and many regard it higher than square enix's flagship franchise, Final Fantasy. Created by the ever vibrant Tetsuya Nomura and featuring Disney characters and worlds in unison with past Final Fantasy characters, Kingdom Hearts has literally charmed the hearts of gamers since its initial release on the PlayStatio...

Will we ever see the end of "Definitive Editions" games?

16d ago ... So it seems like this generation "Definitive Editions" of games are going to be the next big thing. What is a "Definitive Edition" of a game? Judging from what has been released so far you can conclude that the so called definitive edition is one that includes the following: 1)A release on any of the modern generation of hardware including: Ps4, Xbox One, PC, or WiiU 2)Higher resolution,...

DriveClub After all the Hype? So What happened? Here’s the truth.

16d ago ... Well nothing happened, the game came out and guess what, it’s not that bad. I’ve been playing now for 2 days and it’s been a blast, are the graphics good, sure they are, the interior on the cars looks amazing, these low reviews are crazy. I mean the level of detail here would make GT5 look like an Atari 2600 game… LoL Ok maybe not that dramatic, but the game looks good. the interiors are...

Was Driveclub reviewed properly?

17d ago ... Driveclub has finally launched. There are those who love it already, those who are a bit mixed on it, and of course those who think it is trash. The same can be said for the critics as well, if you take a look at all the reviews being published right now. There are 8's and 9's going around, lots of 7's, and even the occasional 5. Now, I've played about 2 hours myself today and do enjoy th...

Nintendo's Upmarket Woes

18d ago ... Up until the 7th generation of consoles, there was an established pattern to launching consoles. At launch, you would target the upmarket segment of the gaming crowd, known more commonly in gaming circles as the “hardcore gamer”. This is the group that will spend north of $400 to get a console and games at launch. As time passed, and production costs declined, the console could be sold at chea...

My Personal Top 15 Games of The Seventh Generation of Consoles

18d ago ... Note that this list is my personal opinion and only games that I played (and finished) are listed. Please be constructive and unbiased and feel free to state your opinion and list your own personal favorites. As a side note since I never owned a Wii during the 7th gen only PS3 and 360 games are listed. Also PC games are excluded as I don't play much on PC. Additionally PCs' don't really...
