Not the E3 We Deserved, But the One We Need Right Now

765d ago ... The general consensus this year has been that E3 2012 was a massive disappointment. All three of the platform holders (Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo) failed to show why they and their platforms are still vital. Meanwhile, the two largest publishers were either absent entirely (Activision) or clearly stagnant (EA). The dirge of new IP's and the reliance on tried and tested formula games in co...

PSN holding Sony Back?

1499d ago ... Well, I gave up my first PS3 quite a while ago. Is imply did not use it. The Blu-ray did not bitstream, so I had a standalone player and the games I played most were on Xbox. I also found Live! to be a far superior online experience and XBLA to have much better casual games. Well, here I am now with a PS3 Slim, bitstreaming my Blu-rays and my Xbox in retirement. Do I miss the Xbox, yes. But...

Now, I have talked about the stupid non-existent gap of casual and hardcore before and I have angered and perhaps accidentally insulted some people and their gaming habits. This will be another delivering, controversial blog from Cajun Chicken, especially for fans of platformers....

Aren't we all tired of these kids giving us crap on the good games that we play because they don't involve some sort of control gimmick, or because they can't just pick it up and play it without reading the book?
