Game of the Year

23d ago ... In terms of Game of the Year, the last generation started off pretty predictably. The large AAA games were the ones to take the centre stage. Games like Mass Effect, Bioshock, Oblivion and GTA 4 were the names thrown around in most of the conversations and most of those conversations were centered on a handful of games. However, as things progressed, we began to see smaller titles like Braid an...

Let me rant about something I loved

164d ago ... Now I don't know how many people will click to read this based on my title but it's pretty indicative of what the content will be about. Now before we go on let me warn you I AM GOING TO SPOIL THE ENDING TO BIOSHOCK INFINITE BURIAL AT SEA EP 1 & 2. If you played it or have no plans to ever play it then let's get started. I loved my time with Bioshock Infinite and thought it was a fantasti...

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

233d 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...

It’s 2014, What game are you waiting For? And Why? Is it really a good game, you sure about that?

257d ago ... You know, it’s funny but I’m really starting to wonder about games these days. I mean were finally here in the nex gen, but it’s really not even feeling as good as last gen. At least not yet. Maybe last gen spoiled me, but I have not played anything as good as the blockbusters I was playing at the end of last year - GTA V, The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Battlefield 3. I’m going to tel...

My Game of the Year Awards

263d ago ... Excuse me if this is is a bad blog, if so, I'm sorry. So it's the time of the year where games are given awards. I want to give my awards out, if that's okay. Best Fighting Game: Injustice: Gods Among Us Simply, this game is good. After making the amaze-fest called Mortal Kombat, Netherrealm Studios comes back and makes something better. From the moment I heard of this game I thought tha...

Dark Horse/Backburner Game?

413d ago ... Right I usually don't do blogs, or even post comments for that matter but thats besides the point,seeing as Pops and dedicated amongst other of you do quiet a few good blogs, I figured what the heck. Sure this blog will have nothing to do with the Phil Fish fiasco, which I have no idea nor the slightest interest in to be honest, instead this blog will cover what has been some of the top notc...

Gamers should stop wanting movies based on games.

447d ago ... You know whenever I go online check out vids of awesome games I'll always see a few gamers say how they wish the game would be turned into a movie. Whenever I see this I ask the always important question, why?, why do you want what works as a video game to be turned into a movie? Why would you want them to take Bioshock and make a movie out of it? And honestly I can't come up with ans...

Religion vs Video Games

495d ago ... Videogames get a lot of unwarranted bad press. There’s barely a week goes by that they aren’t being blamed for social ineptitude and aggressiveness, with some even claiming that video games turn us into cold blooded killers. Along with parents and lawyers looking for an excuse for why their ‘oh so perfect’ son is a violent maniac, there is another institution that is seemingly always getting vi...

Is the quality of games declining?

510d ago ... I recently finished Bioshock Infinite and I can honestly say it disappointed me. It just didn't feel like the game Levine was making it out to be. Sure, the story and atmosphere are amazing, but there was one very important element that left a sour taste in my mouth. What's that, you ask? The actual gameplay... I figured I was perhaps the only one to feel like this, so I discussed it with a...

Will low-end PC's hold back nextgen games?

520d ago ... Every article held for PC vs console always brings forth discussions of consoles vs high-end PC's. Will PS4 be as powerful, will they be equal or will it even surpass? Let's not kick the dead horse in this blog, I would rather introduce a more concerning topic: consoles vs low-end PC's. Could these lesser spec'd PC's potentially hold back multiplatform games? Or will they fall in line wi...

bioshock infinite and the 4th wall theory. (spoilers)

527d ago ... Having played and enjoyed bioshock infinite twice (hard and 1999) I have developed a theory about the ending of the game. I have a theory that the end of the game doesnt just speak to us about the endless realities within the game but is also trying to reach out into our living rooms and speak to us as gamers. There are massive spoilers ahead so read on at your descretion. You will reach a...

Top 5 Franchises of the Gen

534d ago ... We all know by now that the PS4 is coming next holiday season and the next XBOX is probably going to be announced at the upcoming E3. That and I have no idea what gen the WIIU is in if any of you do fill me in. So with the end of this gen fast approaching I propose to you the reader what I think were the five most important gaming franchises that really made the gen. I use the word important no...

Why are we defending the Dead Island bikini corpse?

608d ago ... (This is my second attempt at writing on this, while the issue is still fresh. I threw together a hastily-written, poorly constructed blog entry last night with way too much caps lock. I looked at it this morning, and thought I must have been crazy. I'm truly grateful for the honest feedback I received on that, I slept off whatever craziness got into me, now let my try to tackle it with a bit m...

Is The Tokyo Game Show Becoming Irrelevant?

1060d ago ... In the latest issue of GameInformer, issue 223, November 2011, an article spanning a depressing half page was placed in the magazine summarizing and covering the TGS. The title of the article: "Big Booths, Small Impact". Tokyo Game Show was once a convention that rivaled E3, and was highly anticipated each year. However, in the past couple of years, many have noticed that the show has been lo...

Not every video game needs multiplayer

1115d ago ... Its a sad fact that so many younger gamers will pass on a great game if it doesnt feature multiplayer. They miss out on many incredible AAA single player games like Dead Space , Bioshock , Oblivion , Deus Ex and many others. Its more a generational thing than anything else. You see us old fart gamers that grew up playing video games in the 80s and 90s were winged on hundreds of excelle...

Deus Ex HR gives hope to gamers everywhere

1116d ago ... The new Deus Ex game is great. What makes it so great? It's great because it has the balls to do something that most games these days don't: stick to its roots. Sure, there are minor changes here and there, but Deus Ex is a game that recognizes it came from somewhere. The developers didn't act like they were geniuses from heaven here to bestow upon us their vision. No, they knew that there were...

Does RAGE Really Need Deathmatch?

1134d ago ... It has been stated several times that id Software's upcoming RAGE will not feature the traditional Deathmatch (DM) and Capture the Flag (CTF) modes normally expected out of an FPS. There have been gamers, most of which we could assume are id-faithful, have reacted somewhat negatively or shocked. But should they be? Apparently, id felt that the co-op and vehicular multiplayer works much better...

Bioshock Infinite Preview (E3)

1189d ago ... If you're hoping to go into Infinite with a squeaky clean slate and an empty mind, don't read any further, the events discussed occur partway through the game. In a packed room of media there's a presentation of Bioshock Infinite - the story, the combat, the world. For those that need a little catching up, our main character, Booker DeWitt is a former Pinkerton agent - former because he play...

Digital distribution; How I love thee

1248d ago ... Before this week, I had only bought a few games the digital way. Those were Star Trek Online, SEGA Genesis & Mega Drive classics and Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers. But this week I discovered a few deals on steam that I simply could not resist. I bought the Bioshock 1 & 2 deal, the GTA Classic deal and today the GTA IV deal. And I must tell you. It feels great. I realized...

Sequels Slump: What's Wrong with the Industry?

1334d ago ... Game sequels have been popping out faster than anyone can play them. It appears that for every original intellectual property we get, there are at least two sequels that we have to suffer through. Just look at games like Fable 3 or Fallout New Vegas. These are games that offer slightly more content with kinda improved graphics for the same game play you already had. Sure there are some new w...
