I Might Feel a Little Bad For Microsoft.

67d ago ... I think the late nights, and the occasional early morning, are starting to get to me, because I'm actually starting to feel a little bit bad for Microsoft. Note, when I say a little bad, I only actually mean, a tiny bit bad, and nothing more. Allow me to explain. As we all know, when the Xbox One was first announced, there was a list of things people didn't like about it, from DRM, to alwa...

Reminder: Console devs can and will rip you off

70d ago ... Firstly, slow clap for Microsoft separating Xbox One from Kinect, finally. Not a sarcastic clap, I'm talking honest, building-up slow clap from movies after somebody makes a big, heroic speech. Now, in no universe is this not a good thing. For Microsoft or gamers. The Kinect was not the future. I don't think we're going to like motion control until it's done in conjunction with a holo-deck....

73d ago ... It has been a pretty interesting year since E3 2013, and now that we are a month away from the next one there are plenty of questions but few answers as to what to expect and what we could possibly see at this year’s event. What is to come at E3 this year? I’m just going to share with you guys my thoughts and expectations of E3, including individual expectations for Sony, Microsoft, and Ninte...

Use it or Lose it?

139d ago ... Are used games a friend or an enemy to the industry? For that matter, what are they to you? At first glance, the issue wouldn't seem like a relevant topic for the next gaming generation following players' apparent victory in favor of used game support for next-gen consoles. Scores of gamers reveled in Microsoft's astounding 180 on their previous used game restrictions for the X-Box One and t...

How to Spot a Liar: the Green-Eyed Monster Strikes Again

254d ago ... “Jealousy, that dragon which slays love under the pretense of keeping it alive. ” ― Havelock Ellis I give both Sony and Microsoft grief and praise when I feel they need them, so it's no secret that I was very upset about Sony charging for their online, talked about the PS3 being my last console, eventually being won over only to the degree of Picking up the PS4 in the future and not on the...

'Oh Noes! PS4 Exposed!' The recent craze in gaming reports.

257d ago ... If you've seen recent reports about the PS4, you'd know that the PS4 is apparently going to 'spy' on you and will block used games according to the European ToS for the PS4. Where do I begin? First off all, you guys know that these were the exact same ToS in the PS3 right? Secondly, can we drop the PS4 DRM conspiracy theory? Because Sony confirmed that the PS4 has no DRM back in February and...

Rant: Where is the Gaming Industry Headed?

266d ago ... Am I the only one seeing this gloom and doom trip that everyone's going on heading into the next generation? Because it's been beyond noticeable to me. Whether it's people saying that consoles are going to be taken over by smartphones, or that gaming development costs are skyrocketing continuously, a lot of people are saying that consoles are going to die out, that digital distribution is go...

The RTU Debacle: Well, that's gaming journalism for you.

272d ago ... UPDATE: COD Ghosts Confirmed by Activision to be running at 1080p native on the PS4 and 720p upscaled to 1080p on the XBO. Another debunk: http://n4g.com/news/1383882/mark-rubin-confirms-call-of-duty-ghosts-is-720p-on-xbox-one-and-1080p-on-ps4 So, I watched ReviewTechUSA's video. I was completely mind blown by the outlandish claims that this guy was making. He said that he got them from 'Ve...

Digital Distribution and mobile gaming: Will they take over?

296d ago ... I've seen the same thing over and over again and I'm sure you have to. If it isn't ReviewTechUSA ranting about how mobiles are gonna take over the industry, then it's someone saying that digital distribution will be the only way to get games. People have been saying these things a lot lately and there are a few things they didn't seem to consider. First of all, digital distribution. Let m...

Understanding the Console War - Part 1

297d ago ... Competition is always interesting and exciting. The drama that builds is both entertaining and exacerbating. Shots are fired and people pick sides. The emotion is real and feelings will be hurt. This year we will be treated to an old fashioned head to head competition. If you are reasonable and realistic, you can partake in the ensuing flame war and come out largely unscathed. It is, after a...

DRM: The Digital Future of Gaming

344d ago ... Microsoft’s decision to include DRM (Digital Rights Management) in their new console was met with a wave of hostility from gamers around the world, and as a result Microsoft was forced to change the original policies of the Xbox One to resemble those traditionally found in consoles. But was this the right move on gamers and Microsoft’s part? In my opinion it was at the time yes, but not in th...

Xbox One - MS's big failure

353d ago ... I just can't believe how much the Xbox One is changing. It's definitely becoming different than the system first announced. It's like the public is telling them how to have the system. And that is where MS is failing. The company is supposed to be responsible and knowledgeable for how their product is going to be ending up being, not the people in the streets who keep telling them how they shou...

Consoles Will Never be like Steam

355d ago ... Still drinking Kool-aid that Microsoft is not even selling any longer, many people are under the impression that the Xbox One as it was originally conceived was an excellent idea. A handful of people think that with DRM, Xbox One would have managed to lower prices and have better sales. The prices would even be on par with Steam. But the fact of the matter is that Xbox One was never going to...

Lol, I'm gonna get so much hate for this.

359d ago ... The biggest story recently is that M$ has 'upgraded' the Xbox One from 800MHz to 853. Good job MS. Pathetic boost to damage control. *Slowly claps*. Either way, the comment sections have been blazing. First off, if you think a 53MHz boost has any significant meaning, my PC which maxes out Crysis 3 laughs and I don't even use it that much. Secondly, am I the only one concerned as to how MS p...

The PS4 is still a better option than the Xbox One

360d ago ... Since Microsofts DRM reversal, the Xbox One has rebounded in the eyes of gamers. However after the limelight being on the Xbox One people seem to forget what the Xbox One and Microsoft tried to pull on gamers. The reality is that the PS4 is still a much better option than the Xbox One, heres some reason's why. 1) Sony hasn't tried to f***k over their consumers. Sony has never changed their...

The Xbox One: Will all the good things last?

362d ago ... Over the past few weeks, Microsoft has been flip-flopping on their stances with DRM and self publishing. They've been working on getting into as many gaming events as well, from Gamescom to TGS. My question is, don't you think MS is just setting a trap? At E3, MS showed actual games and exclusives. Why? Because they were getting so much negative feedback on the initial XB1 reveal. Nothing mo...

Microsoft or Sony? My next gen choice.

364d ago ... So there has been a lot arguments on the web on whether the Xbox One or the PS4 is the better console. From the start Sony has made all the right moves and shown that they are the more developer and consumer friendly machine. They started a campaign specifically targeting developers just to show they care. They supported used games right from the start and never brought up DRM (Digital Rights M...
