My Personal Top 15 Games of The Seventh Generation of Consoles

19d 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?

19d 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

20d 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

20d 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?

22d 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

25d 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?

26d 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

29d 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...

Destiny and Its Loyal Haters: Observations from a Man Sorry He's Having Fun

29d ago ... Launch night came and went with all the wonder and promise of any other. I couldn’t wait to wake up the next day, sprint through my day at work and Fresno State, and get back home to play it. Destiny was great. It wasn’t a revolutionary game by any means, but the mixing and matching of RPG, MMO and a solid shooter with stunning visuals was inexplicably fun. In fact, to this day I can’t ev...

Destiny: The Best Way to Get Loot

29d ago ... Destiny has been out for a while now and we've seen lots of articles all claiming to have "The best way to get loot", however now that Bungie has "Nerfed" the "Holy Loot Cave" what is the new best way to get loot. One of the most frequent ways I see in comments is Crucible. I've seen polarizing views on Crucible. Some say it gives tons of loot, some claim it doesn't give anything. I wanted to p...

Titan One Review- "Mods without Soldering"

29d ago ... The Titan One is available online for approximately $60 USD. A device was provided for review purposes. More information can be found at www.consoletuner.com. A digital modding device for console controllers that both makes me giggle with glee and shiver at its application for online gaming, the Titan One is a curious device. The Titan One really shows its colors by working as intended as...

Play How You Like And I'll Do The Same

30d ago ... I can't believe that this needs to be said but apparently it does. How you choose to play a game is completely irrelevant to everyone but you. The rules you set up for yourself in playing any game are only your rules, they are no one else's, and you have no right to preach the "correct" way to play any game to anyone else. Today I'm talking about the fanboys who complain about people who use...

Under the Knife: Swatting, a Deplorable Crime

31d ago ... A lingering trend has come to my attention recently. Apparently, this trend has gained traction since 2013 and has grown into something new. The trend I'm referring to (and which is titled above) is called "Swatting". What is Swatting? Swatting is the false reporting of a violent or ongoing crime at a designated location or by a victim whose sole purpose is to get a huge emergency response (pre...

Growing Apart - Critics and their Audience

31d ago ... In almost every artform, there are times when critics and their audiences diverge, where their opinions and tastes seem worlds apart. Transformers 4 continues to make billions while I recover from the brain damage I sustained while watching it. I consider that movie to be so bad that it should be considered a crime against movie making itself. The critics generally agree with me. But that is ju...

The Better Quality Control

32d ago ... The games industry seems to have a knack at ‘asterisking’ certain old sayings. “Any publicity is good publicity*. *This doesn’t always apply for the video games industry.” Another ideal like “less is more” is another one that’s seemed to be slowly eroding in truthfulness (only for the games industry) when I began considering it as an old-guard mentality for content curation. Thanks to digit...

Fanboys Be Like...

32d ago ... Since this generation has gotten underway, the crazies have been overly vocal, supporting or defending their platforms of choice. Nothing wrong with that, except in the past, it was a very different scenario for their company of choice. So I've come up with a list (in no particular ranked order) of some of the silly things I've heard this generation so far. 1. "Microsoft's Cloud will show th...

Why Do We Play?

32d ago ... As I sit at my little cubicle (it is a slow day at work) I think about how much I like playing Final Fantasy XIV. But then I think, “Why? Why do I like playing that game so much?” Is it the beautiful graphics, the open world, the many quests waiting to be had? I have an appreciation for anyone who picks up a controller, but sometimes I wonder what makes us do it. To me the fact that I can go...
