No Man’s Sky Really Sounds Like A Breathe Of Fresh Air?

It's not like other games we have played before, this one somehow seems really different.... Comments(11)

Game length vs Value.

72d ago ... The definition of gaming varies from someone to the other, some people consider gaming a free time killer, some consider it a hobby and some consider it a necessity of life. And each type of those people looks for something different in a game, some just want something fun, easy, and makes them feel relaxed, others look for a challenge or a hardcore experience that makes them feel good about t...

The Sony Reformation

72d ago ... We know them as a hardware company, but over the past few years, Sony has been slowly transitioning away from hardware and towards being a service type company. Many factors are at play here. In the TV and computer markets, they were outdone by competitors who could produce for far more cheaply. The strong yen did not help them in being competitive overseas either. In their other portable elect...

Buying a Work in Progress

73d ago ... Once upon a time, when you bought a console or game, you knew what you had in your hands. You had a finished product. A definite and contained experience for all time to come….or until the cartridge disintegrated. Things have certainly changed since then. The PS3 I bought at launch is a far cry from the one I have on my table next to me. Even my games change over time, especially the online com...

Life after Vita

73d ago ... I really want another handheld from Sony – from the looks of things, I’m in the minority (a very small minority at that). The dedicated gaming handheld space has taken quite a step plunge since their lofty heights since the last generation. The culprit is most likely the growing handheld and tablet market. Nintendo seems fine despite all this thanks to their software lineup and the variety of p...

Hot Topic

75d ago ... This is a re-post from a blog I wrote for 11x2, but I think you may find it useful! -Cat ___________________ I struggled with this. What would be the most truly cringe-worthy title for this blog? I hope you're satisfied. There have been a few earnest inquiries about submissions and their heat lately, so I wanted to cover a few things. First, how does the heat algorithm work: a. uniq...

Video Calling on the PS4. Is it coming soon?

77d ago ... A new show called "Powers" just launched today. Fans of the comic book were excited to hear that Sony had teamed up to publish the show, and members of Playstation Plus were excited to hear that they would be receiving the entire season free. Excited by this show and the hype around the comic series I hop on my PS4 this morning and watched the first three episodes, sadly I have to wait weekly t...

Hotline Miami 2 | Everything you need to know

78d ago ... When Hotline Miami launched back in 2012 it shocked the market with it’s stylish execution of fast paced top down action, trippy music, and an engaging plot. The talented team at Dennaton Games is at it again for this year’s release of Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. As the final game in the series, hopes are high for Dennaton to deliver on another exceptionally bloody adventure. So, let’s take...

Illbleed: A Forgotten Classic with a Forgotten Spirit for Game Development

78d ago ... Recently I've been revisiting the classics of the survival horror genre, which is only now returning to its roots after over a decade of misrepresentation. Having played all the Silent Hill's and Resident Evil's countless times, I sought out some of the obscurities of the genre, and that leads us to Illbleed, an anomaly within an anomalous genre. There really is nothing like this game, it both...

The GDC Has Gone Full Feminist And Can't Be Taken Seriously

79d ago ... It's time, once again, for another one of "those" blogs. A blog in which I share how ideology, -ists, and -isms, are digging their way into the gaming industry the way a Ceti Eel burrowed into Chekov's ear in Star Trek the Movie 2: The Wrath of Khan, eventually wrapping itself around his cerebral cortex and making him completely vulnerable to outside suggestion all while causing immense pain....

What The Order 1886 Got Right

79d ago ... I played The Order: 1886 and I like it. It’s not a crime, well, maybe on the internet, but not in the real world. I recently wrote a blog about story in games and as soon as I wrap it up, I find myself playing The Order. All criticisms aside, this game does a lot of things right when it comes to storytelling technique in games. You may not like the story itself or the ending but I do think that...

The Sims 4 | History is Repeating Itself...Again

79d ago ... It comes as no surprise that video game developers often form a pattern when it comes to an extensive franchise under their sleeve. Activision likes to release a new Call of Duty installment every year, Rockstar Games likes to push boundaries and parody modern culture in Grand Theft Auto, Volition likes to make each Saints Row installment more and more over the top and Electronic Arts likes to...

My Impressions of Hatred and the Fiasco Surrounding It

80d ago ... Hatred. A strong word to be sure, but a word associated nowadays in the video game industry with a game of the same name. The game in question was one that saw a near instant removal from Steam because of the controversy over the game's premise. After seeing the first initial trailer for Hatred, I can understand the apprehension many people have. It's violent, vitriolic, and somewhat uncomforta...

How VR Ruined Gaming for Me

81d ago ... When I look back on it, I should have seen it coming all along. Im a gamer and have been for about 20 odd years. But what happened 6 days ago changed my life. As I said before, I'm a gamer. I'm also a technophile. I love tech. I currently poured about $8000 into my Media Room. Front and center is my pride and joy. A 106" projector screen. I ended every house tour with a blazing demo of...

The Future of 007 in Gaming

84d ago ... "When is the next James Bond game being released?" my mother asked this evening during dinner. In seven months, it'll have been three years since 007 Legends launched, the last installment in the James Bond video game franchise. It was a question that I have been asking myself for two years, since Activision lost the Bond license after having acquired it from EA seven years prior. It's also a q...

QTE's and Cinematic Games Aren't Going Away

85d ago ... It's Monday, I've been up for about an hour and a half as of the writing of this blog, and I decided I'd check out my youtube subscriptions to see if there was anything good to start out the day with. I saw a video from AVGN, Angry Joe reviewed The Order 1886, and Jim Sterling did a Jimquisition about Cinematics. All in all, some good videos. Angry Joe and Jim Sterling coincidentally ended u...

In Defense Of Ground Zeroes

86d ago ... As every man and his dog cram their metaphorical baggage into the overhead storage of the hype train that's destined for the mysterious release date of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, I sheepishly volunteer myself to be the fuddy-duddy who yanks on the emergency stop cord and politely asks the driver to go back to Ground Zeroes-ville. Why? Because only one description lingers after the ri...

Ye Olde Import Game

87d ago ... In today’s interconnected world, gaming has never been so transparent, especially when it comes to imports. If you want a game from Japan just hop on Amazon and go get it. If there is a certain title you want localized, well then just petition your heart away until you get your wish. It wasn’t always this easy though. Not so long ago importing a game was a dicey affair and more often than not i...

An Ugly Dress and Why it Doesn't Matter What Color You See

88d ago ... Social media has been abuzz about the picture of a rather hideous dress. When shown this picture and asked, "What do you see?" I reply, "An ugly dress." But the raging debate about the color of the dress made me realize something very fundamental. Some people see a black and blue dress. Some people see a gold and white dress. And some people can see both. But it doesn't matter what colo...
