Sony Won Day 0 of E3 2014

42d ago ... Microsoft's press conference definitely caught my attention. C'mon Halo 1-4 for 60 bucks... aaaaaaand beta access to Halo 5! Not to mention an anniversary drop of Halo 2, probably the most competitive FPS of its time, I couldn't have been the only 20 year old kicking and screaming (Will Ferrel?) That moment they showed us Halo fans what we've been longing for. I instantly decided to save up...

My Views On E3 2014

42d ago ... E3 2014's press conferences have literally just ended, and I'm going to go right into what I thought about the pressers individually, and the event as a whole. I watched every conference there was, and I'm just going to start at the beginning. Microsoft: ============== They did an excellent job, Phil Spencer especially. Watching the conference, I saw on Twitter and the chat window that pe...

Stop overhyping Ubisoft games! Yes, YOU!

42d ago ... I swear, EVERY time a Ubisoft game is revealed people go "OMG, it's gonna be amazing, GOTY, etc, etc!" THEN, a couple of months before release, you find something wrong with the game and declare it a disaster. THEN, people blame Ubisoft for seemingly overhyping the game, when in reality, Ubisoft was just doing their job and promoting the game like EVERY company does! Nintendo, EA, Sony, M...

I want an Xbox One, but I'm not getting one.

43d ago ... So I've been reading up on the comments for Microsofts E3 press conference, I can't exactly agree or disagree for any of them. I liked just about every game I saw. Each and every one of them looked exciting. Yet with every good game comes a buttload of ridiculous controversy. Just look at Watch Dogs. Here's a couple of post I saw. Keep in mind that they are NOT word for word. My memory isn'...

A game by any other name

43d ago ... The ongoing issue about defining what is or isn’t a video game is one discussion I’ve been compelled to typically avoid in the past. It was only a few months ago while reviewing Proteus that I bothered to actually dedicate any effort on the topic—which may have been ill-fitting and detracted from the review altogether as I look back. And while anyone who may have seen that particular piece wi...

Road to E3 '14: Sony and the King - PlayStation

43d ago ... DISCLAIMER: This is the FINAL of my 3-PART SERIES, that I will be writing throughout this week; all dedicated to the Grande, upcoming event, simply dubbed "E3". All content in the following blog post is the sole personal opinion of the user, simply dubbed "AKR". Yes - it's THAT time of year again; the great celebration for Gamers everywhere! The biggest, and best event for all things Gaming...

E3 Is Almost Here

43d ago ... E3 is right around the corner and here I am stuck once again in my cycle of life. Earn money, take care of kid, and hang out with the family. But I almost forget. I have to spend some time with the Playstation 4, but that will be difficult considering there are no compelling games to play. Oh well back to collecting dust I suppose. In all seriousness my Playstation 3 and Wii U have been gett...

The Gaming War - Is It a Console War? No! Its the Free-to-Play Rip-Off!

45d ago ... First, I'd like to say, I have all three consoles and basically all AAA games as they come out! The console that I use everyday no matter what is the Xbox One! Why? Easy, my TV connects through it, and the voice controls with Kinect 2.0 work like a charm for me. It's not perfect but neither are we. Also, I'm no techie or graphic artist but I like the darker feel to some of the games on the X...

Leaks Might Not Be As Bad As You'd Think.

45d ago ... It happens every year. In the month or so, leading up to E3, something is bound to be leaked. Most of the time, at least two of the big three have some kind of announcement that's revealed earlier than anticipated, as does at least one third party studio. Excitement stirs, and many anticipate the full reveal of these games. On the other hand, many think leaks are a bad thing. If a compan...

Drama, Drama, Drama.

46d ago ... Bored and curious, I looked up a few YT channels. I won't name them, but you can guess which ones. I will say that they are quite notable and have been responsible for controversy. Anyways, I look up the channels, watch bits of a few videos and it suddenly dawned on me as to how much drama and sensationalism comes out of gaming journalism and gaming in general. Dead Rising 3 comes out to...

More Wii U words

47d ago ... So, there are lots of things wrong with the Wii U. Marketing has been confusing, the games have come slowly, third party support is gone, the asking price is too high and the tech is too old. Nintendo doesn't have a problem that people need to insightfully boil things down to; they have a large, unlabeled umbrella full of issues collected like so many undesirable Pokemon. That's the lens the...

Games Journalists vs. The Society of Professional Journalists

47d ago ... I watched an interesting video on youtube that linked to a tweet made by Polygon's Brian Crecente, which you can read here. https://twitter.com/crecenteb/status/473101155481169920 So, like the video that showed me this tweet, I decided to take my own stab at this topic and rate how much games journalism follows this code, if at all. The code can be found here. http://www.spj.org/eth...

Polygon's Nintendo Nightmare

48d ago ... Let me start off by saying that Mr. Kuchera's views are probably not representative of the entirety of Polygon. I always find that gamers tend to associate one person's review or statement with the entirity of the site/company, and this isn't usually the case. That said, I find his statements to be an additional footnote to the laughable incompetency that Polygon trails. The article in quest...

How the Fox is Gamings Next Big Superhero

48d ago ... Authors Note: This article is best read after completing the campaign of Watch_Dogs as it does contain some story SPOLIERS. Give Frank Castle a cellphone with tremendous hacking capabilities and a slightly more sociable demeanor and you may be remiss to mistake him for Aiden Pearce, the vigilante from Watch_Dogs. At his core, Aiden is a slightly more realistic take on Batman (albeit with a...

Innovation: Not what the market really wants.

50d ago ... Recently, The Order: 1886 got was shown in the form of a full gameplay video. Visually, the game is stunning. Sure, it isn't very colourful, but it really is on the level of CGI quality. However, no game is safe from negative 'opinions' and this was no exception. 2 minutes of gameplay brought out the hypocrisy of the gaming community. Not as much on this site as sites such as Neogaf and espe...
