Sqaure-Enix has lost it: Final Fantasy VII

63d ago ... Ever since the PS3 tech demo, and even before that, fans of Final Fantasy VII have been salivating over the thought of a remake of the game that brought JRPGs to new heights. FF7 is regarded to many- myself included- as the best game that has ever been released, and although that may be subjective, it speaks volumes to how many fans hold this title so highly. Final Fantasy VII wasn't the onl...

PSVR not a revolution, but a step towards the evolution of gaming

63d ago ... Let’s get this out of the way, PSVR works as advertised. The VR headset for PlayStation is a good VR device. PS fans; however, dial back your expectations because again it’s good, but not an amazing wonderful gaming revolution some wanted it to be or were hoping for. But on the flip-side this is not ammo to bash PSVR, because it delivers on the VR goodness, and the headset is without questio...

Gamers and Backward Compatibility: A Lack of Reasoning

63d ago ... Ok, so before I even begin this I need to take some time to get something out. I probably will hardly ever use the ps4’s ability to play ps2 games. Unlike most, I have a pretty big library of ps2 games and I cannot see myself buying over any of those games just to play in HD with trophy support. I was looking forward to being able to pop my currently owned discs into my ps4 and have the HD vers...

PlayStation Experience is Not E3. Stop Treating it Like It Is.

64d ago ... Many gamers here and pretty much all over the place are walking away from Sony's keynote disappointed. Everyone perceives excitement and disappointment differently, but gamers in general seemed disappointed. Why? Reasons vary. Let's talk about why it disappointed: it had little in the way of big announcements (honestly, the Call of Duty/Battlefront news was pretty boring to me), VR wasn't exact...

Why Square Enix Has Just Made Me Worried For Final Fantasy XV

64d ago ... Yep, it's another blog. I'm on a roll. This one is about Square Enix and how they've just lost touch. Leave it to Square Enix to take the wind out of everyone's sails by vaguely commenting that Final Fantasy VII's Remake could very well be episodic and that each episode will play differently than the last. No one wants FFVII-1 FFVII-2 and so on and so on. When fans asked for a remake after t...

Sony Has Lost It

66d ago ... PSX 2015 has to have been one of the most boring conferences I've ever had the displeasure of sitting through. Not since Microsoft revealed the Xbox One has a conference been so boring to me, and the only saving grace from that were all the memes afterward. What the hell is wrong with you Sony? First you insult us with your answer to Microsoft's BC being a "you're gonna have to rebuy your...

Has Sony Hired EA To Market Features Or Something?

66d ago ... Hey how's it going everyone? Been awhile since I posted a blog and my foray back into it is to call Sony out on their B.S. along with all the blind, moronic people fainting at what ISN'T backwards compatibility. What the hell is wrong with all of you? This isn't backwards compatibility, it's an extension of the "sell you back games you already own" mentality that was born from remasters, PSN...

PS VR, The Future I've Always Dreamt Of For Games(Or Is It?)

69d ago ... With the dawning of a new era of gaming upon us, I ponder the future of this technology and if its implementation will match up to the expectations of an Atari age kids imagination. You see, ever since I was a child and saw my first 3D movie... I thought 3D in gaming was the Holy Grail. Having objects and people pop out of the screen, making you feel as if somehow theyve left their gameworld an...

5 Flaws that keep Fallout 4 from Perfection

71d ago ... First of all; Fallout 4 is by no means a bad game, or even a good game, it is excellent. But Fallout 4 unfortunately pales in comparison to the near perfect Skyrim and engrossing Fallout 3. So, this is not a hate post against Fallout 4 but flaws that can and will most likely be fixed by mods, but it is disappointing that Bethesda didn't fix/include them at launch. (Note: I haven't included glit...

FOBs The Tumor of MGS V

76d ago ... Recently I got back into Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain after spending a couple weeks on Fallout 4, I'd like to keep this blog centered around the FOB feature of the game and not have this spiral out into MGS V bashing in the comments section due to the other aspects of the game. With that out of the way let's start. As I said I recently got back into TPP with one of the first things th...

Overpriced and lacking in content for a Star Wars game...

78d ago ... Back in 1982, Parker Brothers released the very first officially licensed Star Wars video game for the 2600. "The Empire Strikes Back" was based on the Hoth Battle from the movie of the same name. You didn't have turrets, or Rebels fighting in trenches, or tow cables, or light sabers. Just you piloting a snow speeder on a scrolling 2D battlefield, shooting at AT-ATs. It took many shots to...

Good luck to all! . I'M THANKFUL FOR...: 5 Winner...

No Happiness Forever: Star Wars Battlefront: EA

85d ago ... "I got a bad feeling about this..." I recently played Star Wars Battlefront II with my brother, and in the first time in what felt like ages. Despite the archaic graphics and controls, We had a great time, throwing together a quick playlist of modes in Instant Action and customizing them. We dared entering Echo Base against Wampas on Hoth, before diving and weaving between capital ships in s...
