The Industries' Obsession With AAA Games

14d ago ... Over the years I have noticed that more and more developers and publishers are posting about sale figures. Videogame budgets greatly increased form 6th gen to 7th gen. During the 6th generation of consoles; games required smaller budgets to reach the AAA standard. The lower development prices of games allowed for new releases to be consider successful even if they failed to reach 1 million in...

Sony didn't need to win Gamescom; They have already won 2014

42d ago ... Today I saw two different strategies when comparing Microsoft to Sony and their approach to gamescom. Microsofts announcements were more aimed at selling more xbox ones, particularly in europe This was done by really bringing the hype for the big guns Fifa - Cod - Halo MCC/5 beta - Quantum Break - Fable - AC:U - Tomb Raider. The Fifa stuff was pretty pointless because we know of legends...

47d ago ... This is the FULL Story as to why fans are upset with Naughty Dog's greedy DLC structuring with the Last of Us. In this blog, I outline why this is more than "just cosmetics", what the actual issue is, and why Naughty Dog has been getting a bad rep amongst the MP fans for how they've chosen to handle their consumer transactions.

Destiny may have more locations in store for us!

49d ago ... Recently, It was revealed that each of Destiny's planets only had one location! Though this was indeed disappointing for many gamers excited for this adventure, I found some information that might be of interest. (I would like to make it clear however that any predictions I make are not to be taken as facts. This is only an educated guess.) While surfing through the Destiny companion app,...

EA Access: One step away from disaster

54d ago ... EA have unveiled their new subscription based service which takes a lot of cues from already established services like Games with Gold and Playstation Plus. What EA is offering is free EA games (that come and go from their “vault”), discounts and no doubt DLC exclusivity for their EA games. For £3.99 a month the price isn’t so bad and makes the service an attractive offer for those Xbox One own...

Pre-Order Babies

70d ago ... Hello again kiddies to another one of my polarizing blogs subject for today's blog is one about pre-orders and the people who take issues with them. Now A game that has been on my radar for a while now has been Alien Isolation Sega's millionth attempt to revive this dead franchise and tensions are high as the stench of Colonial Marines still linger in the air. Recently they have shown off a...

Broken And Unfinished Games Are BAD Games

142d ago ... Some trends in the industry are good ones. Sometimes we see fair DLC practices, or we see a lot of indie games on the rise or even HD remasters on new consoles. None of those things can be deemed "objectively bad," because their value is subjective to the gamers considering them for purchase. It's safe to say that in this day and age, there are few 'bad' games that come out. There are games tha...

Stop Supporting Blatant Cash Grabs

163d ago ... I'm just going to come right out and say this at the very beginning, The Last of Us Remastered is a clear cash grab and poor attempt at bolstering PS4 releases in the wake of the fact that true PS4 releases are slow going because Sony didn't skimp on support for the PS3 just to bring games to the PS4. The Last of Us Remastered is just as bad as Tomb Raider: Fraud.. I mean Definitive Edition....

Let me rant about something I loved

170d 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...

Is GTA V Coming to PS4 and XOne and would you buy it again?

176d ago ... Signs are pointing to it being very possible that we will indeed get this, especially since PS4 files were found in one of the DLC updates. So this seems more than likely but sadly it has not been announced so that kind of makes me a little worried that we may not see it. Rockstar is in a really tricky position. Of Course it seems like a no brainier to just bring this to nex-gen, I mean t...

Why DLC sucks

185d ago ... Now I know the title of this is going to immediately ruffle some feathers. I am also aware that most of those feathers will be of NEW gamers. When I say new I mean any gamer who started his/her career with the PS3 and Xbox 360. You see Downloadable Content didn’t rear its ugly head regularly until the aforementioned gaming machine made their debuts. Downloadable Content (DLC) was in theory an e...

Fans: No Matter What You Choose, You've Won

187d ago ... I love video games; love 'em to death honestly. I've been gaming ever since I was a little baby, playing Mario when I was barely speaking sentences, then Sonic when I was into Saturday morning cartoons, Jak & Daxter in junior high, Halo when I was entering high school and now a little mix of everything in between. Video games are most certainly my passion and certainly hold a very dear place in...

WiiU to be dead by 2016 and here's why.

195d ago ... So if you are a nintendo fan or a gamer you'll know Nintendo's WiiU has not been a big success, under performing in projected sales and game DLC being cancelled for the platform. Now while yes it has recently had some good games released (and by some I mean like 2 games) that sadly is not really enough and the sad truth is the way things are going Nintendo might kill of the WiiU before 2016....

Next Gen Ports: Why I'd Happily Buy Them

224d ago ... As someone who has bought a PS3 and Xbox 360 I've played my fair share of games, some of them I've loved like the Mass Effect series for example, I've had years of pleasure from my first steps on Eden Prime to the Infamous ending at the Crucible, But I've had more than enough time to enjoy myself and move on to later games. Now this is not a feeling I'm having with the likes of The Last Of Us a...

I am announcing that I am writing a blog post

251d ago ... I wanted to take a moment to announce that I am going to write a blog post right now. The blog post just started. I thought you should know. Silly, right?

Bioware Austin just announced they're working on an unannounced game. There's a rumor that Nintendo's R&D...
