A Question For Parents

19h ago ... The majority of us don't believe gaming is something that actually makes a person violent or becomes a menace in society. I've been playing games since I could remember and I have always loved them. However, I don't take them serious at the same time, they are a form of entertainment for me or something to release some stress. I wrote a humor article on the subject about parents freaking out ab...

Why "more advertising" is not always the answer

1d 16h ago ... Advertising is not a cure for all that ails struggling products. It is very common when discussing struggling products for gamers to offer some variation of the following statement “It would do a lot better if only they would advertise it!” It is certainly true that advertising helps a product, but the matter is not as simple as that. Take the struggling Vita for example. How much do I have to...

I Am Disappoint: Destiny Damage Control

3d ago ... I know, I know, another whiny blog about what's wrong with Destiny. Well, if it makes you feel any better, this has less to do with my actual Destiny experience and more to do with the game's reception. Please watch Machinima's Inside Gaming video on Destiny's critical reception, as this edition in disappoint will be in-part a response to a certain point brought up in that video: https://www...

PS4 1 Year Later This is for the Players, Are you not entertained?

3d ago ... “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears” By William Shakespeare No Seriously are you not entertained, are you enjoying your PS4? Because the PS4 has been like a bat out of hell since it’s launch, I mean nothing can get in it’s way, not even the XboxOne, and that’s it’s only real competition. (unless of course you want to say PC’s but let’s just talk consoles for now) So has it li...

Cloudy Days and the Silver Lining of the 8th Console Generation

3d ago ... With the 8th console generation about a year into all consoles being out in the wild, many of us are excited about the future these machines hold for our entertainment. There's a lot going on and a lot that's happened recently, so let's talk about some disappointments that have upsides. Every cloud has a silver lining and I love being optimistic about the state of the industry, so here are some...

Amiibo's looking cheaper than first shown.

4d ago ... I came across this article yesterday pointing out how Link had changed in design, many people argue it's still the same but anyone with a keen sense of detail can notice they aren't nearly the same anymore. Not only did they change the stands, the figures themselves seem to be lacking in the same quality they were initially shown off in. As someone who was excited to start collecting some of...

Are We Gamers Becoming Harder To Please Nowadays?

6d ago ... I ask this question, because to me, I notice that nearly every new release on the consoles and PC so far, there has been so much hate surrounding each game. Is it because we are expecting too much? Is it the developers releasing games too early, with problems at release (example: Battlefield 4, Driveclub, Destiny). Is it because we get sucked in to the hype train so much that when the actual...

When Did Graphics Stop Mattering?

6d ago ... Quite some time ago, I began to notice gamers exclaiming how "graphics don't matter," and phrases like "it's the gameplay, not the graphics!" Well, I say, since when did gamers stop caring about how their games look, and why has it become almost politically incorrect as a gamer to demand both great gameplay and amazing-looking,eye-popping colors and textures whilst playing said awesome gameplay...

#GamerGate #StopGamerGate2014? More Like Print Media Versus Viral Media

7d ago ... So, I've been thinking of what could be the real issue behind the recent string of places like Giant Bomb, Gamespot, Eurogamer, Polygon (although that site has a two fold reason), and now Game Informer, have come out against GamerGate because one person somehow represents hundreds of thousands of people. Outside of the fact that people simply do not do research enough into this situation, I tri...

Phil Fish Was Never Cut Out for the Gaming Industry

8d ago ... You can't really go on any given video game website without hearing the name Phil Fish. That's right everyone, I'm going there. For today I will be tackling one of the most outspoken and downright despicable figures to ever show up in the gaming industry. To be honest, I have been quietly seething with much anticipated fury to be able to finally write out my impression of Phil Fish. With all th...

So I found something that bugs me about the Bay 2 reactions...

9d ago ... So I found out something a little bit ago that really put things into perspective for me, regarding Bayonetta 2, and I just want to talk about that a little....[keep in mind, I'm an owner of the first game, on PS3] A long while back, a little gem called Mad World made its way to the Wii. This game, despite being on a system that was infested mostly with casuals who didn't pay attention to c...

Mass Effect 4 - My Theory For The Next Gen Trilogy

12d ago ... Mass effect was one of the greatest new ip's released on the last generation of consoles. Now, as we await news on the next instalment, here is a theory I felt would be the natural evolution of the franchise. I hope you enjoy reading this theory and share your views. This will obviously contain spoilers! Mass Effect 3’s Leviathan DLC showed us the origin of the Reapers - they were the result...

Batman Arkham Rises ideas.

12d ago ... So as many of you know Rocksteady's highly anticipated sequel and possible final chapter of the Arkham series was pushed to 2015 instead of releasing the intended date of 2014. Now when I heard Arkham Knight was going to be in 2014 I thought the series was pulling an AC on us and going yearly but it got pushed possibly due to hardware. This led me to think that maybe after Arkham Knight the...

Destructive Creations' 'Hatred' Takes Video Game Violence to New Levels

13d ago ... As gamers, we are not strangers to violence in our favourite forms of entertainment; as a matter of fact, it's present in almost every video game today and a main selling point for the hottest titles. Video game violence has always generated a tonne of controversy, but more often than not, it was discounted as just part of the experience. We saw Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics take the Tomb Ra...

Don't Get Me Wrong, But...

13d ago ... There's that familiar old adage again. The one we, who find ourselves in the crossfire of popular opinion, must employ as we dane to approach a more meaningful discussion about this young, developing medium. Don't get me wrong, I love all platforms. Don't get me wrong, I'm not biased. Don't get me wrong, but I see no benefit in swinging such an empty disclaimer ahead of our insights as th...
