Tales of Genderillia

77d ago ... It is said that there are only two stories in the world...a stranger came to the village and the villagers venture out and meet a stranger. Tales of Xillia had been an interesting journey, to say the least. After almost a week of reflection, I've found it surprising what had and hadn't stuck with me. Most notably, it seems, I'm still reflecting on how it had subverted the accepted Male/Femal...

Terror vs. Terrible: Horror returns to the mainstream

78d ago ... As per usual, we have a lot of horror titles to be excited for in 2014, but what makes this year particularly special is the fact that we're finally seeing a true return to form for a genre that lost it's way in the loudest corner of gaming culture. Last Year, I believe, I became exponentially excited about an indie game that was green-lit on Steam, tearing through every little drop of infor...

How To Get Better At FPS Games

79d ago ... The concrete debris cracked mercilessly beneath your rugged combat boots as you ran, taking in a deep breath - or at least you tried. You coughed as your lungs, appalled, tried to expel the unhealthy pollutants. The air was clogged full of ash and dust, if you hadn't known better, it would seem that someone had pounded a truck-full of chalk and exploded it into this room. Or perhaps some nearby...

Tomb Raider Xbox One and PS4 Graphical Differences

79d ago ... The internet lit up like a neon Christmas tree recently with the revelation of a framerate disparity between Tomb Raider on the Xbox One and the PS4. Whether you jiggle furiously with percentages or not, there is no doubt that the PS4 has higher framerates and looks more fluid. Numerous articles and numerous posts have debated the framerate to such an extent that something glaringly obvious has...

Taking a macroscopic look at micro-transactions

80d ago ... I initially had this topic more geared towards being just a light-hearted rant in the vein of a Christmas-themed carol or children’s story for the December contests, but perhaps it’s for the better that I dive into this on a more serious note the first time I’m presenting it. Even though I’ve seen this new nickel-and-dime scheme in recent console titles, I wasn’t really hot and bothered by it...

My Kickstarter Nightmare: Soul Saga Edition

80d ago ... UPDATE: created a thread on NeoGAF earlier this evening it's gotten quite a few responses, both sides of the fence, but still quite a civil discussion going on: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=759617 ----- So today I was banned from the Soul Saga (DisasterCake) forum ; http://forums.disastercake.com/ This came as a surprise since I'm generally a quiet and fair memb...

Nintendo Should Revive the Gamecube Controller with Smash Bros Wii U

80d ago ... Super Smash Bros Wii U and Mario Kart 8 are the two premier titles Nintendo is set to launch on the Wii U later this year. In case you haven't heard, the Wii U isn't exactly selling all that well. Nintendo was forced to cut their sales estimates by more than 6 million for the system. Many have written articles with recommendations for "saving Nintendo" and "turning around the Wii U," but I'd...

Nintendo hate is out of hand.

81d ago ... Over the past few years it seems Nintendo is getting a lot of hate and criticism. From claims that Nintendo "releases the same Ip" to "Nintendo games are for kids". Lets cut to the chase, Nintendo releases one major Zelda/Mario/fire emblem/ every other game pretty much once or twice per console. What I want to know is why is it not okay for the big N to do this but is perfectly fine to have a l...

A "Back In The Day" Kinda Blog

81d ago ... Taking a look at the gaming industry today, you couldn't say that there was ever a time that it was bigger; at least demographically. In many ways, it's a good thing that gaming is as big as it is today. There is still a stigma about it, but it carries far less weight than it used to. Many differing themes and styles exist, all coming from new minds with new ideas and new ways of improving on t...

Bioshock 1 makes every player out to be a fool no matter what

81d ago ... At the start of the first Bioshock game you crash land in the Atlantic, not properly knowing who you are or why you've crashed. You know you're not quite a 'faceless protagonist' though - you see family photos, you're a smoker. You are meant to be a fixed 'somebody' not just 'anybody'. Similarly, in Bioshock Infinite, you are somebody. you can even see your own reflection early on. In bot...

Why We're NOT Screwed Even If We Don't Buy an Xbox One

81d ago ... Admittedly, this blog post is long overdue yet the combination of real life obligation and the painful surgery work I've had done on my jaw made it increasingly difficult to get my head in the mindset. Couple that with the ever growing mountain of turd piling on Microsoft's head and you have an entry that needed to adjusted again and again. My first blog was titled 'Why we're screwed even if...

Why Gamers Should Care About EA on the Worst Company List

82d ago ... We are quickly approaching that time of the year again. The Consumerist website will be tallying up their nominees for the Worst Company in America. Already they have been getting flooded with votes from participants about who they believe is the worst company. Once again, Electronic Arts has been nominated by many people and I know what some you just did. You either sighed, rolled your eyes, o...

Memoirs of a Senior Gamer: Ye Olde Arcade

83d ago ... So here's how this is going down, your father thought it would be good if you two spent some time with me. Suppose he wants yous to learn some wisdom from an old timer, heh lord knows he never did! Now I don’t like either of you and I'm sure as hell you don’t like me. You give me any lip and you’re on denture duty. Repeat offenders clean the bed pan. Understand? You there, not you the chubby on...

Playstation Vita's troubles and where to go next

83d ago ... It's no secret the Vita isn't doing so well. Chances are if you're reading this blog you'll have read around 15 articles and blogs about the death of the Vita and various ways to save it. This blog isn't entirely different, but I'm going to write about the ways the Vita is failing and the ways it's succeeding, and how the road to recovery doesn't really seem that complicated. Price: Price...

Dear Sony: greedy isn't cool

84d ago ... My beef today is with my favorite console manufacturer. Or at least they were my favorite during the PS3 era. I feel let down. I feel like I bought a Porsche... but its not a well-made Porsche. That's not cool. My DS4 controller thumbstick rubber is wearing thin. It's even beginning to tear on the left stick. The battery runs dry after what seems like about 2 nights of play. The but...

What I would do as CEO of Nintendo.

84d ago ... Note: This isnt all i would do, these are just 13 descision within the realm of possibility that could help Nintendo in its struggle with the Wii U. What i do if i was CEO of Nintendo. 1. Put Xenoblade Chronicles on the eshop for $29.99, this would build hype for X as well as attract all the people not willing to pay 70 bucks for it at GameStop. 2. Fund a Resident Evil 2 remake a la the...

The original Wii the worst thing to happen to Nintendo

84d ago ... A few days ago an article showed up stating that it was Sony to blame for Nintendo failing to entice 3rd party developers to make games for the Wii U. That may or may not be the case but i believe that Nintendo is their own worst enemy in this matter & it all started with the original Wii. Take a trip back in time with me, back to the end of the 6th generation of game consoles. The Sony PS2...
