The Importance of Being an Omnigamer

95d ago ... It's easy to pick a platform and form brand loyalty. It's cheaper, it's saves space under your TV, it's easier to keep track of new games releasing and it's just plain fun to join in on the fanboy/girl platform wars. http://i.imgur.com/B5kLr9R.png But I'm here to do the unpopular thing and tell you that you are failing as a gamer if you do this. Not only are you missing out on some of...

Why Nintendo quality dominated 2014 quantity

246d ago ... I must preface this article by saying I am in no way a Nintendo fanboy. I have openly mocked Nintendo on many occasions in the past and this article is as fair and impartial as I can make it. As we ring in 2015, I can't help but chuckle at Nintendo's complete dominance of 2014. I never saw it coming, and if you are being honest with yourself, you didn't either. I am of course talking about q...

What's "sexy" and what isn't "sexy" in gaming

530d ago ... I hate classifying gaming as "Sexy" but to be honest I just wanted an excuse to show off that picture of Palutena. Anyway, there are many things that people like, and many things that people don't like. It's mainly all opinions, but here's mine. We'll see if you agree. What is "Sexy:" Graphics This was a no brainer. I've stated many times that I don't care about graphics as long as they lo...

Rare Where?

546d ago ... Sometimes, not very often, a developer comes along that conquers the technology of the time perfectly. Rare were one of the first. If that pun made you smile then you already know where this article is going. If you are anything like me, this will already be making you feel a little dead inside. Before all that though, there was Donkey Kong Country. I know Battletoads came before that an...

The Nintendo Experience at Best Buy

811d ago ... So with E3 finally having been wrapped up, I headed off to my local Best Buy to try out some of the new E3 demos that were there. I was able to show up on the dot of the starting time of the event and by then there was already a pretty lengthy line. Thankfully there was a sign in sheet, so the demos were not simply "first come, first serve." Most of the players were into the new Mario games, Su...

GOTY Awards

1724d ago ... Well I do this every year, because I don't agree with many of the choices the major websites pick, as it seems like they're trying to push certain games over others. So here's my GOTY awards. Best Action-Adventure Winner: God of War 3 Runner Up: Red Dead Redemption Honorable Mentions: Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Bayonetta, Darksiders, God of War Ghost of Sparta, Metal Gear Solid...

Top 5 Game Music Cover Bands

1995d ago ... If there's one thing I love more than gaming, it has to be music. The best kind of music is game music, we all know this. Donkey Kong Country 2, Tales of Legendia, Zelda: Link to the Past, Okami, the list goes on. This post is about the music that has inspired bands to rearrange this game music into their own compositions or just flat-out playing the same songs just with a full band accomp...
