My Highlights of Nintendo’s Direct Livestream Conference

880d ago ... Last week was Nintendo’s first ever live online conference. Before the show we were aware that there’d be no new Wii U information, which considering the amount we got at E3 only 3 weeks ago, seems fair. There were, however, plenty of 3DS and Wii announcements- a few in particular caught my eye. Animal Crossing 3DS 4 years after its previous Wii iteration, the wildly popular Animal Crossing...

PS4 confirmed in a way

896d ago ... Scott Rohde of SCEA has confirmed that a successor to the PS3 is coming he didn't say when we can expect the system or even when Sony will begin to release system specs or a potential launch window. Sony may not be making any official announcements but there are plenty of rumors circulating on the internet. Some rumors point towards Sony launching the PS4/Orbis ahead of the next Xbox during hol...

E3 2012 and What I Want to See

992d ago ... Another year, another E3. Every year around June, the biggest and the best announcements and games are unveiled at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo). Every year something big is always announced at the worlds largest game trade show. It was E3 2005 that the PS3 and Wii were unveiled. In 2006, Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII were announced. And it was 2007 that we saw Killzo...

3DS not doomed...Just has competition.

1164d ago ... Its no secret that 3DS has had the best start but that does not mean it can't finish off great. Don't believe me? Why look at the PS3, but that's another topic. Articles flying left and right claiming Nintendo's downfall is near. No, no its not folks. Nintendo just saw its mistakes and decided it needs corrections. Its not doomed. This holiday will be big for it, Mario, Starfox, Mario:And frie...

Recap and thoughts on Nintendo E3 Presentation

1265d ago ... And so Nintendo finish off the big three’s press conferences. Last year Nintendo gave us a inoffensive and cute press conference with the awesome announcement of the Nintendo 3DS (well when Kid Icarus Uprising was announced). However it was marred by too much talking about themselves and not giving the third-party much room to breathe. Was Nintendo’s keynote speech at E3 2011 an improvement or...

Overall E3 Review

1265d ago ... MS- Where were the exclusive games for the core? 90% of the games for the core were 3rd party titles that are also coming to PS3 and now Wii U. Sony- Use your time more wisely. The flow of the show was probably the best it’s ever been since Sony always has to have 2+ hours per show. But presenters need to get to the point more quickly and get things shows so we can see everything. There...

E3 2011 Nintendo Press Conference

1267d ago ... I have extremely mixed feelings about Nintendo's press conference. While I'm over the moon with the 3DS games for the most part, the Wii U line up screams the "Hardcore" focus to an embarrassing degree. Extremely disappointed at the Wii U controller design as well. Here's my responses to the announcements. - Legend Of Zelda's for all consoles! Link's Awakening on eShop available today for 3D...

E3 2011 Ubisoft Press Conference

1268d ago ... Ok this press conference wasn't as boring as the EA one but not much made me look forward to the next 12 months. Anyway here's my responses to the announcements. - Rayman Origins. Seems like fun. Also has local co op like a lot more games should. - Driver San Francisco. I wasn't a fan and still not sold on it. Also confused on what's going on. - Far Cry 3. Not my type of game but vis...

E3 2011... my thoughts.

1276d ago ... As you may already know E3 2011 is a mere one week away and I certainly cannot wait to see what new hardware/software will be unveiled. The whole event kicks-off June the 7th and unfortunately ends June 9th... still three days of constant influx of news regarding all things video gaming is more than enough for my tasting. Like every year the three major video game companies; Nintendo, Micros...

E3 2011: Predictions

1282d ago ... After cherry picking the internet for gossip and rumours regarding the upcoming E3 event, the biggest in the video game calendar, E3 2011 could be the best ever produced or give gamers the greatest underwhelming experience since the Panasonic 3D0. Personal feelings regarding hype always involve a note of caution, in that way I never feel a overwhelming sense of frustration although I admit...

1295d ago ... E3 is fast approaching and we all have our own personal desires as to what we want to see announced at the biggest gaming press event of the year. After doing some research on various websites and forums here is a list of possible announcements that could send various websites into meltdowns of excitement. 1. Cross Game Chat PSN One of the most requested additions to the Playstation Netwo...

MS Pre GDC 2011 (X11) Was Very Disappointing

1370d ago ... The Pre GDC show was very disappointing, they promised us big announcements but instead we got map packs which we already know, a known beta & sesame street. I have supported Sony since the Ps1 & this gen i made a idiotic mistake of buying the Xbox 360, mind you This was in 2007 & back then the PS3 wasn't as attractive as it is today. The PS3 This year has a whole army of amazing exclusi...

Sequels Rock

1440d ago ... The year of 2010 is coming to an end. Overall, it's been a fine year for gaming, I would say. Now, with the end of the year approaching, game developers everywhere are scrambling to notify their potential customers of what's on the horizon. Generally, the lion's share of these notifications tend to be announcements of Big Name Sequels, and the round of such announcements for 2011 onwards is a s...

Getting past the fanboy and back to the fan

1586d ago ... I've been a member of this site for almost 3 years now and, at one time, it was a pretty cool place to go and share excitement for a game or console or developer. Gradually, it's dwindled to stories like: Kinect: It sucks? Move: It sucks? MS: Killed Michael Jackson Sony: We eat American babies Nintendo: *cricket chirps* Kinect: Gave birth to Jesus Move: Innovation the likes of the the...

Checkpoints: Because You're Just Not Good Enough

1600d ago ... I recently purchased Demon’s Souls for my PS3. For those of you not familiar with the game, it’s a Japanese action-RPG that simulates torture. In Tokyo, I’m sure you could simply buy a ticket out of a vending machine to a club where someone would repeatedly burn you with cigarettes, but in the United States we have to make due with what is imported to us. After repeated sessions of total scr...

How Sony themselves 'Lost' E3.

1615d ago ... E3 2010 took place a week back and all 3 companies had their shows up. Personally I don't believe anyone 'wins' or 'loses' at E3 since a company just comes out with it's announcements and future products, but with that said our good ol media always pins up X won Y lost so in those context here are my views at E3.... Oh and sorry for this late article, was on a vacation. Now to start of, I am...

E3: Nintendos Press Conference

1624d ago ... Let me start off by saying OH MY GOD! I creamed myself. Announcements of Donkey Kong, Kirby,Epic Mickey, Legend of Zelda, Kid Icarus, and an extremely surprise announcement of Goldeneye 007. Nintendo, you have certainly outdone yourself this year, and you may have even stolen the show from Sony. Good Job! This was easily the most action packed Nintendo E3 conference EVER! Despite a li...

E3 2010: Microsoft Where Art Thou?

1624d ago ... As a gamer of most platforms this generation E3 is a time for me to be excited, who will announce what, what type of new services are coming and what will cause the fanboys to tear the limbs out of each other using comment box sections. Having watched the first player to enter the arena i.e Microsoft I was left with a major feeling of underwhelmed shock. It left more questions than answers a...

E3: Day One RoundUp

1625d ago ... Today was a sad day in the history of gaming, very few game announcements, sub par shows, and just a complete lack of the wooing that gaming does for me. This afternoon, the Microsoft Conference - All started out well with videos showing gameplay of Call of Duty: Black Ops and Metal Gear Rising. a bit of Halo:Reach.. Then... Microsoft couldn't keep away from Kinect, formerly known as Project...
