The viewpoint of a single gamer

99d ago ... Never thought I'd be a person to do a blog but after the latest "scandal" going through the gaming world I felt I had to take to my keyboard/phone and let loose. Please bear in mind I've never done one of these, most likely never will again so cherish the moment (or let it die in the submissions area) and feel free to criticise/point out areas I need to approve . The topic I'm referring...

Stop overhyping Ubisoft games! Yes, YOU!

103d 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...

The biggest BS in gaming history.

190d ago ... I'm surprised nobody else has bought this up, but if I have to be the one to do it, so be it. So, what IS the biggest BS in gaming history? Underpowered consoles? Too big a focus on graphics? The prices being too high? None of those. Memorize this line: "You speak of innovation when any attempt at it is dismissed as a gimmick." Do me a favor. Pass that saying on, because it NEEDS to b...

Franchises that don't seem to die

209d ago ... This one has been in my head for a while. Lets do this countdown style. 6)Assassins Creed. This game originated last gen. Now, the latest title is Assassins Creed 4, so you'd think there are only 4 games, right? There are over 12. AC1, AC2, AC Brotherhood, AC Revelations, AC3, heck there's even a DS version that I forget the name to. This series seems old, yet it's only been around fo...

Don't gimp my PS4 versions (Part 2)

241d ago ... This is what I like to hear, no gimping of my products. When I want something, I want it produced and expressed as best as it can. Something else comparable can’t keep up? Well its their fault for not making a strong enough or efficient product. Don’t hold back your products, and make the public suffer. Give us the best experience you can, and you will shine because of it. I made a blog some...

Your favourite video game music/tune & why?

272d ago ... What makes good video game music? Its different to all people, to me good video game music is about Nostalgia and emotion. If the music/theme brings out emotions then that's what I consider good. The last I made an article like this was 1 year ago. This is an improved version. Here are my top 10 favourite and the reason why, I also like giving stats and ratings to everything: Honourable m...

Modern Videogames: The Reality Complex And Fantasy Fall Out.

381d ago ... For over 25 years now videogames have offered all of us an escape from what can often be considered, a boring, dreary and mundane existence (aka "reality") So then, why is it that so many of us care so much about videogames being realistic? I mean what's so special about "realism when videogames have the potential to offer us a world of infinite possibilities beyond the limits of our reality?...

Best Games Of This Gen?

385d ago ... As this generation of consoles begins to come to a close, many great games have been released during its entirety. I started pondering about which games this generation were the best. I thought hard and I've compiled a list of games which I personally think are the best of the best. I tried narrowing down all my choices with only ten games. Choosing the ten games themselves was hard but trying...

Sequelization: It's a double standard.

408d ago ... There's a question I often hear posed by many gamers and it goes something like this. "Why is it that Mario games always seem to get a free pass when it comes to sequels and rehashes, yet game franchises like Assassins creed, God of War, Halo and the like get criticised and sometimes even marked down for it?" Well I have a theory for why that seems to be the case and it goes as follows....

The cost of AAA game production is putting a chokehold on creativity in the mainstream

436d ago ... The needless expense of AAA video game production is killing creativity and originality in mainstream console gaming It has been said by countless game reviewers and bloggers before me, but I feel I must say it yet again. The practice of throwing insane amounts of cash at AAA projects causes a need to adhere to generic tried and true formulas, as well as attempting to appeal to as wide an au...

Diablo III and the Future of Single Player Games

783d ago ... One of the most anticipated games of the decade Diablo III is released, almost 10 years after its predecessor but it carried a sort of a restriction, one that requires users to be perpetually connected to the internet if they wanted to explore the hellish dungeons or slay the demon overlords in Diablo III. Many a user has complained about DRM that has been implemented in several PC games. Assas...

No it's not ok to manipulate review scores

1068d ago ... So it has recently come to our attention that EA Norway has tried to manipulate review score's for Battlefield 3. As you might expect i was outraged by this, but what upset me more was the fact that there are people actually defending EA.The first claim that people mad is that "everyone does it so it's ok". Firstly everyone doing it is baseless speculation and unless someone can provide evidenc...

Why I think Assassins Creed Brotherhood is the worst of AC, and a worrying title for AC fans

1131d ago ... I know I'm going to get some (well, probably a lot) of heat for this but screw it I'll go for it anyway. Just so you know, there will be spoilers ahead about AC:Brotherhood itself and possibly ACII and AC. Lots of people have talked about what Ubisoft have achieved with the Assassins Creed series. Assassins Creed was a game that was in development for quite a while and was initially planned...

This Autumn is more than just Battlefield 3 vs Modern Warfare 3

1157d ago ... For as long as I can remember I don’t think we’ve ever had such a variety of great games to look forward to as we do for this Autumn. Just read this: Deus Ex: Human Revolutions Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception Gears of War 3 Assassins Creed: Relevations Batman: Arkham City Resistance 3 Battlefield 3 COD: Modern Warfare 3 Forza Motorsport 4 Rage Dead Island S...

Hitman Absolution: Another perfect hit or a messy ending?

1201d ago ... I'm nervous about 47's newest outing. I'll reserve full judgement until gameplay is released but I've been reading all the previews I can find and this doesn't sound like the Hitman I or any other fans were hoping for. While I agree the graphics look amazing and new additions like better melee and climbing, cover and updated shooting sound great, everything else sounds...off Hiding i...

Adiction-simplicity ratio.

1314d ago ... Remember Pac Man, Tetris, Asteroids, Pong?If your answer is yes, then you are the same as hundreds of thousands of gamers who have a memory relating one or more of those games.But since then,things in the gaming industry have changed,but does that mean that there are no longer programmers as creative as Toru Iwatani or Alexey Pajitnov? I know what you're gonna say,graphics and advanced technol...

My Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood beta experience

1442d ago ... So I just got done playing the AC:Bh beta. Took a while to get it working. Before I start explain how I feel about the beta I will say how I felt before I played the beta. When I heard that the next Assassins Creed will have online I was REALLY excited. I liked the first Assassin's Creed, and loved the second. I really thought that the AC:Bh online could be revolutionary (I think that every vid...

Assasins Creed Brotherhood Multiplayer BETA impressions

1455d ago ... I just finished playing the Assassins Creed multiplayer BETA and I must say I'm impressed. I'm a huge fan of the first two games and have been waiting for this for a very long time. The controls are familiar to veterans of the series but they have been simplified. Assassinations happen with the square button and you don't have any other weapons. Well that and being anonymous. You earn new skill...

Points about Infamous and Prototype: One year later

1520d ago ... Last year, about the same time, two games came out with a similar concept. One of these was a PS3 exclusive named Infamous and the other game was a multiplatform game named Prototype, the games were developed by Sucker Punch and Radical respectively. For some completely odd reason people could not accept the similarity between both the games, at a distance without footage and information, both...

HALO, Never Played it... Probably Never Will

1597d ago ... I’ll wait a moment until you regain consciousness….. There you go, now sit down and hear me out. Many would call the HALO franchise gaming’s golden egg, the end all be all of AAA titles; I however do not. Because, well, I’ve never played it. Come to think of it the most time I’ve ever spent with an Xbox 360 is the 30 seconds I spent playing Assassins Creed in a Game Crazy… before buying the...
