Don't Get Me Wrong, But...

166d 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]

166d 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

168d 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

169d 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...

Th...

A Complete Kingdom Hearts Retrospective

173d 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?

173d 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.

174d 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?

174d 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

175d 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

175d 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...

Does Pixel Count Really Matter?

175d ago ... Smell that? Yep, it's that magical time of year for games to come out. A show of the games having the latest tech, the evolution of gameplay, and of course the endless bickering between people over trivial things. Tis the season I suppose, but a rather interesting piece has come out over the latest iteration of the Assassin's Creed series, Assassin's Creed Unity, coming only to current-gen and...

The Crew's Beta Debacle

177d ago ... Last summer, we witnessed the announcement of The Crew, an upcoming racing game spanning across the United States, in an open and persistent world. It was widely advertised as what an open world racing game should be, taking an indiscriminate jab at the Forza Horizon series. Let me just say that for the record, they ought to have kept their mouths shut. Since its announcement, I was looking...

The Misuse of Metacritic

177d ago ... There’s this teaching that I remember from my youth. A knife is just a knife, it has no inherent good or bad to it. In the hands of a surgeon or chef, it can be used for immense good. In the hands of a killer or thief, it can be used for bad. This pretty much sums up my opinion of Metacritic. It’s a tool. No, not that kind of tool - the other kind. There is a misunderstanding of what Metacritic...

Why are you complaining over more games?

178d ago ... The topic of how many Mario and Assassins Creed games is constantly coming up within gaming forums, and every time I see them I shake my head. People seem to constantly pass by the simple solution to having an issue with these franchises. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY THEM. I stopped playing Final Fantasy a LONG time ago, but every time I see a new installment, I watch the trailer, I see if it's...

Digital Market Offerings On Consoles Is A Failure

182d ago ... I'm going to start this blog off by saying F.U. Sony. Yep, you read that right. A big F.U. to Sony. I bet you're wondering why I, whom everyone insists is a huge Sony fanboy on this site, would say such a think right? Well the answer is because Shadow of Mordor is $70 here in Canada, and that's everywhere. Now I have known that Sony increased game prices in Canada awhile back, but up unti...

Destiny's Skirmish: An Unbalanced Waste of Time or an Unforgiving Masterpiece?

183d ago ... I was at the Tower looking for some easy Crucible bounties when I saw it. The mission was simple: complete five Skirmish matches. It sounded easy enough, so I grabbed the innocent little bounty and blasted off to orbit, my cousin Zach joining my fireteam before I started the first match. “Work together, and you might survive!” The Speaker warned as Zach, another player and I spawned in. Zach...

Final Fantasy XV - An In-Depth Analysis Regarding The Battle System

185d ago ... Another final fantasy blog folks! I guess I'm a bit of a fan. I recently read an insightful post over at neogaf regarding the battle system featured. Or at least a break down of its combat patent. Which of course is just a way to ensure nobody else can copy your game, its not necessarily the concrete reality of how the game plays. However, I think its safe to regard these words higher than a fe...
