Not Necessarily Necessary News Nor Necessarily Newsworthy

14d ago ... Episode 3 Every time you press the “pause” button, another Assassins Creed gets made. 1) In the latest game of musical chairs being played my Microsoft execs, Phil Spencer has emerged as the head of the Xbox division. Yes good old squinty eyes has gotten a promotion over Phil Harrison, who is apparently the Theon Greyjoy of the Xbox division. You should’ve stayed at Playstation Phil. So wha...

You never cancel a pre-order early.... especially over something as stupid as graphics.

17d ago ... Gamers have made me angry ALOT over the years. Here's a small list of the stuff I've dealt with. PS4 haters. Xbox One haters. Wii U haters. Cheaters in online multiplayer. People who try to "expose" you. People who want Ridley in Super Smash Bros 4. But THIS topic takes the cake. Some of you actually CANCELLED your Watch Dogs pre-orders because the graphics were "downgraded" from wh...

Watchdogs... A Community Divided

18d ago ... From the second that Ubisoft released a subpar trailer of Watchdogs, the forums all over the internet have lit up with negative reactions, saying visuals have been severely downgraded over E3 2012s high end PC demo. No matter how much Ubisoft has tried to squash the rumors and remind gamers that the E3 2012 demo was never representative of next gen console visuals(only a target for high end PCs...

Use it or Lose it?

38d 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 Mark Cerny Saved Christmas

111d ago ... Everyone in the world liked Videogaming a lot... But the Mattrick,who worked inside Microsoft, Did NOT! The Mattrick hated Videogaming! The entire accursed hobby! Now, please don't ask why. Else you'd get kicked from MS' Lobby. It could be that the head of the department wasn't feeling all right It could be, perhaps, that the budget was too tight But I think that the most likely reason of...

Console Contradiction

200d ago ... This is my first blog post, actually its my first post period. So please bare with me. I'm about to talk about the 2 next gen consoles. With Gamescom, TGS, and E3 all finished, I think its fine to compare the consoles now. Of course with new information coming out each day, we can never know what to expect. The PS4 could suck with one post, vice versa with Xbox One. So here's my story. My...

220d ago ... Every year I wait for the NFL draft which is alot like E3, than you have Gamescom which is alot like preseason. E3 shows me which new games I will be drafting to my console. And Gamescom shows me how they are going to potentially play. Our consoles are like are favorite teams, every year your team is going to the Superbowl.

Gaming Juggernauts Are Finally Listening

227d ago ... Yes ladies and gentlemen, the big, brash companies that think they can dictate to gamers what they want with little regard to anything else have finally learnt they can't. I'm not just talking about the E3 backlash that Microsoft received, but it also seems it has had a knock on effect with other companies reacting too. Customer service economy Believe it or not, customers have a bigger...

Just Answer The Question! - A Rant About PR Responses

232d ago ... Today on the site I read an interview that GameCentral conducted with Phil Harrison at Gamescom. Read it here: http://metro.co.uk/2013/08/28/microsoft-phil-harrison-interview-absolutely-no-plans-at-all-for-xbox-one-without-kinect-3939852/ The interviewer did an excellent job and pulled absolutely no punches. That's something we RARELY see anymore because interviews are more about what PR...

To Final Fantasy fans: Don't Pass Up on XV

233d ago ... Final Fantasy versus XIII has been on my mind for about 5 years now (for some it's been teasing them for 7 years now) and, for a while, it looked pretty bleak for this game. First of all, nobody I asked knew about it at all (which was understandable because even those who did know about it didn't know much). A fair number of people bought PS3s mostly to play this game. We got a few trailers and...

Nintendo ~ You Need to Break-Up with EA ~ She's Cheating on You

234d ago ... Relationships are some of the most bittersweet things known to mankind. Sometimes, if they're going well, they can be the source of some of the most happiest experiences one could ever hope to have. And when they're in a poor condition, they can be filled with misery and strife. One of the worst things that can happen in a relationship is when one party is lying to the other and cheating on the...

Pikmin 3 Proves that All the Wii U Needs is Big Games

239d ago ... . . . For the greater chunk of this year, the Wii U has been bashed slammed, kicked and spat upon from all sides. From devs, from analysts and even from gamers. It's only recently that the system seems to finally look like it's actually getting some footing. From since the beginning of this year, the system really hasn't sold any boast-worthy numbers in both the software or hardware category...

Eight things I'd like to see in Fallout 4.

242d ago ... Now I think we can all agree that the news that Bethesda didn’t decide to regale us with any Fallout 4 related info at E3 was a little more than disappointing and to be honest some (myself included) are getting desperate for news, but that doesn’t look likely. So, to drag my thoughts from this I wondered; What do I want from FO4? And; Do my fellow Fallout fans agree? These are the eight things...

Ryse... The best?

247d ago ... I am not here to go on about why Ryse isn't the best looking game this generation but this is more along the lines of how anyone came to this conclusion. After looking at the game in detail, I really can't be anything but awe struck, not in a good way. Now you may automatically assume I mean graphically but what I am about to show you has nothing to do with graphics at all. I am posting this...

The Presi-Console Election

248d ago ... I first heard this analogy on one of Giant Bomb's excellent podcast. They likened the E3 press conference between Sony and Microsoft as the presidential election with one trying to take a jab at the other. So in the spirit of me being bored on a Tuesday afternoon, I thought I will have a bit of fun and go a little bit insane. Microsoft is Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney did have a hard time avoidi...

Xbox One back peddling marks gamer victory

248d ago ... So it's official, Microsoft have yet again revised their policies in regards to their next gen console the Xbox One, this time by removing the feature that makes the Kinect 2 a mandatory requirement for using the Xbox One console, something a great many gamers had issue with. With Microsoft now having done sufficient enough back peddling to power most of Europe for a year (Ba dum tish) I'm now...

Xbox One - MS's big failure

252d 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...

My Decision of Choosing PS4 or XBO

254d ago ... During the near final exams in my college, PS4 and XBO were announced especially games like Killzone: Shadow Fall gameplay and teasers of InFamous: Second Son, Deep Down and Knack and other multiplat games like The Witcher 3, Watch Dogs and Destiny and that was before E3 2013. I was excited for PS4 a bit then got into my final exams, finished exams and graduated on 13th June, happy that I have...

Where modern multiplayer gaming went wrong.

256d ago ... I constantly try a lot of games, a lot of those games end up being multiplayer games. I have somewhat of a slight "problem" with current multiplayer games of this generation though, and this issue seems to be only getting worse. I remember watching the battlefield 4 presentation during this years E3, the one in which multiple EA Staff members were playing the game. One player was playing as...
