Wii U, XBox1&PS4 How the #'s Stack Up

29d ago ... I've read countless theories and opinions concerning people's favorite console and the reason they are "winning" the console war or why they are "losing". This invariably is followed by recommendations as to how their respective system should go about either furthering their "lead" or how to "bounce" back- So, I've decided to take another approach to what at times can be a very frustrating argu...

xbox one dx12

29d ago ... Even though I'm a confirmed playstation and ps4 fan (see my post history if you care to), after reading some confusing and conflicting commentary on the subject,I wanted to discuss dx12 on the xbone with a friend who knows about these things (he works for a sizeable US dev). It was around 2 weeks ago when I simply asked him: "Is dx12 going to help the bone?"... and this was his reply, edi...

Fans: No Matter What You Choose, You've Won

30d ago ... I love video games; love 'em to death honestly. I've been gaming ever since I was a little baby, playing Mario when I was barely speaking sentences, then Sonic when I was into Saturday morning cartoons, Jak & Daxter in junior high, Halo when I was entering high school and now a little mix of everything in between. Video games are most certainly my passion and certainly hold a very dear place in...

Will Game Reviews Become Irrelevant?

32d ago ... It has become increasingly common to see a review embargo for games that expires upon release of the title. There are a number of reasons for this. The most obvious to one with a sufficiently suspicious or cynical mind is that the publisher knows the game is subpar and will be reviewed poorly. In this case, the benefit is that the consumer will purchase/fail to cancel pre-order, before seeing t...

Graphics are Overrated

32d ago ... From the first days of video games (or any other visual media) your eyes are the first things to be treated to what the form has to offer. Graphics have always been the measure to which the common gamer judged a game. Back in the day graphics mattered, but not all that much. All you needed was a visual representation of your character on screen A La Mega Man or Mario, and you were pleased. Your...

Wii U can succeed without muti-platform 3rd party support

33d ago ... Truth be told, Wii U doesn't need mainstream 3rd party games like Grand Theft Auto or the latest Need for Speed to be successful. The Wii U is getting its own exclusives, however they also need exclusive 3rd Party Franchises in which fans can become familiar with. Nintendo has the resources to establish 5 franchises if they were to choose to in my opinion. If I had control over Nintendo right n...

Other aspects to examine in game reviews

33d ago ... Despite this new blog being attached to the same focal point as my previous ‘Tired of this Schmitt’ submission, there’s not really that same level of annoyance present for these aspects of game reviews. Whereas before I was just getting tired of seeing the facile responses of some in the game community demanding perfect objectivity within all game reviews so as to strip any tangential facets (...

Should Resident Evil Go on Hiatus?

33d ago ... Resident Evil, the name speaks for itself and it's own place in the genre of horror video games. It was what spooked us and kept us up at night. It's creatures terrified us. It's atmosphere was claustrophobic and tense. So how fairs Resident Evil these days? Not well. I was originally contemplating on if I should cover Resident Evil in Beginning, Impact, and Future; however, I know exactly wher...

The biggest BS in gaming history.

35d ago ... I'm surprised nobody else has bought this up, but if I have to be the one to do it, so be it. So, what IS the biggest BS in gaming history? Underpowered consoles? Too big a focus on graphics? The prices being too high? None of those. Memorize this line: "You speak of innovation when any attempt at it is dismissed as a gimmick." Do me a favor. Pass that saying on, because it NEEDS to b...

I am disappoint: Transformers War/Fall of Cybertron

36d ago ... I want to discuss with you a bit of disappointment I've had with High Moon's handling of the Transformers license up to this point. Now, it's no argument that High Moon made the best Transformers game of all time with 2010's War for Cybertron. They turned what could only be made into a gimmick with any other studio, into a solid gameplay mechanic instead. The only thing that was missing, was...

My Take on Gaming: 8th Gen

37d ago ... 8th Generation gaming is among us following the launches of Sony's PS4, Microsoft's Xbox One and Nintendo's Wii U. Nintendo's Wii U was launched last November and gave us a glimpse to what 8th Generation or more commonly known as Next Gen gaming had in store. Many in the gaming community do not consider the Wii U a true Next Gen console due to its weaker hardware specs when compared to the PS4...

Have gamers become.....perverted?

37d ago ... Forgive me, moderators, if this is too short, but I want to bring it to everyone attention. Has anyone noticed that women in gaming seem to be 10 times hotter than they would normally look? Do we have developers spending 40 hours working on Bayonettas design? There's even a list of the 11 girls in gaming with the best butts. I mean, what? When on Earth did this happen? I mean, look at Li...

How the enjoyment of waiting for a game is destroyed

37d ago ... Oddly enough, it isn't the companies that's lower my enjoyment of waiting for a game; it's you people. How do you do it? 1)Endlessly complain about it not being on your console, which is understandable in some cases, but not when the reason has been stated numerous times, like in the case of Bayonetta 2 or Titanfall. 2)This actually connects back to number 1. Since the game is not on your...

From Then Til Now: An Amazing Gaming Journey

37d ago ... I feel lucky to be one of those to say I have been around since the dawn of gaming. Born in the early 70s, I got to see the beginning of what would become one of the most sought after hobbies in human history. Something shared by those, young and old. An industry that was born in peoples basements and garages, to the multi million dollar corporations listed on the stock exchange. From crude 10...

Interactivity and storytelling. Some thoughts.

37d ago ... I have long thought about game design concepts like narrative and interaction. Some have said there is a great divide between story-driven games and game play driven experiences. I'd postulate that there is a nuance that is often missed though. I believe story-based games are also gameplay-based. Just in a different way. Some thoughts of my own; most people would like a game that is inter...

10 Reasons why the Wii U Wins!!!

37d ago ... I am not going to write a "love" letter about Nintendo(though admittedly I do love Nintendo) and I am not going to try and be a "shield" for all the negative outlooks on the Wii U. What I am going to do is simply compile a list of all the strengths and positive things that I (emphasis on the I) see and have found as a Wii U owner... 1. Backwards compatibility-I can't stress the awesomeness...

WiiU to be dead by 2016 and here's why.

37d ago ... So if you are a nintendo fan or a gamer you'll know Nintendo's WiiU has not been a big success, under performing in projected sales and game DLC being cancelled for the platform. Now while yes it has recently had some good games released (and by some I mean like 2 games) that sadly is not really enough and the sad truth is the way things are going Nintendo might kill of the WiiU before 2016....

The Evolution of Video Game Violence

38d ago ... As a child the games I played were often fun, cartoony, and parental approved such as games like Super Mario Bros. World, Crash Bandicoot, Pokémon, Super Smash Bros., and more. As an adult games have changed. While the experiences I enjoyed as a child are still available for gamers of all ages, many games are now about shooting, violence, and gore. What happened and what changed in the mediu...
