Destiny: The Best Way to Get Loot

121d 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"

121d 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

122d 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

123d 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

123d 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

124d 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...

124d 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?

124d 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...

Plunder Pirates Island Tips and Tricks for Base Designs and Layouts

124d ago ... Build more Chambers! Don't just surround your pirate island with walls like most players do. Instead try to build more Chamber Walls to hold your defense. Multiple sets of walls are hard to bring down compared to just one Big Thin Wall, making your enemies having a quite difficult time to break through. Extend your Docks! Increase the distance the enemy troops need to cross before the...

Gamers Nostalgia - The Special Games

124d ago ... Being a gamer my whole life has given me many moments of happiness and excitement. From the unexpected joy of my parents buying me an Atari in the very early 90's to getting my first NES for Christmas and being amazed by Mario games! Eventually, After the snes and megadrive aged, the Nintendo 64 came along, Mario 64…. Wave racer… Mario kart, it was awesome. Then throughout my life, defining my...

Was Destiny Destined to Be a Disappointment?

125d ago ... It is an understatement to say that Destiny's reception by gamers and some parts of the gaming journalism scene has been lukewarm at best with debate after debate about why another one of the biggest releases of the year turned out to be such a financial success but only a moderate critical success. Destiny is the first multiplatform game from former Halo game studio Bungie and was hyped up to...

How the PS Vita Changed My Gaming Life

125d ago ... Introduced me to the Indie Ecosystem The PlayStation Vita has a handful of AAA games, but as you probably know, the system is overflowing with indie titles. Before I owned my Vita, I had never been too heavy on indie games. But thanks to the massive amount of 'free' titles I received via PlayStation Plus, that changed quickly. I would soon be in the mists of spectacular games like Guacamelee...

An Open Letter to Gaming Media

126d ago ... I have been on the sidelines observing the recent stories that involve everything from Anita Sarkeesian to Zoe Quinn to Phil Fish to Polygon to Kotaku to indie studios' attacks to corruption and finally to gaming media lashing out at gamers. I have recently commented that enough is enough and I'm not going to stand for it anymore. Everything that I have mentioned is going to get their fair shar...

Trolls, #gamergate style.

127d ago ... Trolls, trolls everywhere! And they are getting fed plenty right now. The way I see it a troll is someone who takes the opposite stance to pretty much anyone just to get the reaction they desire, usually it's just for a rise but I see a new troll kind of trollhas arisen. It's dangerous, insidious and has sharp pointy teeth (said in a montey python voice)! Ladies and gentlemen, I refer to...

Sony Increase More Investment Into Streaming Entertainment of Playstation Gaming!

127d ago ... As you May have heard or Have seen the News on Sony's Problems with Profit Generation with the recent projected sales Shortage in the mobile section. Example: Sony Tumbles as $2.1 Billion Loss Limits Hirai’s Options When Hirai took over as CEO in 2012, he said Sony’s revival would be driven by games, imaging products and mobile devices. Since then, the company has announced job cuts an...

Final Fantasy XV Looks Absolutely Fantastic, Finally!

127d ago ... I am a forever fan of Final Fantasy, since I first played it as a 12 year old I have been hooked! The series has been a marathon of classics, one after the other we were treated to amazing games. However, final fantasy 13 was the first in the series, if excluding mystic quest, crystal chronicles or dirge of cerberus etc, to receive serious divide amongst its fan base. I personally enjoyed it, b...

Shenmue, GoldenEye and Championship Manager - My Top 3 from the Last 15 Years

127d ago ... I cannot recall a game absorbing me into it’s world as much as Sega’s 1999 masterpiece Shenmue. Developed by Sega AM2, and the brain child of Yu Suzuki, you play the role of Ryo Hazuki as he comes to terms of the death of his father, and begins his own personal quest in finding out why his father met his end and to carry out vengeance on those who killed him. Set in Japan’s Yokosuka, what se...

Digital Overspending

128d ago ... More and more, gamers are going the digital distribution route for their games. While it certainly is a convenience and often a deliverer of great game bargains, there are a few things that I feel need to be pointed out as a matter of consumer interest. For some, it may prove to be insightful, but at the very least, I hope you find it to be interesting. Digital downloads, by their nature requir...

Our Favorite PS4 Games So Far

128d ago ... Destiny As probably the biggest release of the year, Destiny is a really fun game to play. Even more so when you play with friends. We have been really excited to get our hands on this and shoot some aliens. Although there are some areas that are lacking, Bungie’s new sci-fi shooter sits very well with us. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Wow there is so much to do in this game! There...
