My Top 10 JRPGs

4d ago ... Probably my favorite gaming genre is JRPG, which probably has one of the hardest games, one of the most in-depth, best soundtracks and of course visually great (During their golden era atleast). Genre is very different from western type of RPG games such as Witcher, Fallout and Dungeon Siege Series. With the rise of Online gaming, we have morphed into MMORPG genre quite much, with this i thi...

The state of reviews and the influence on games

281d ago ... After reading reviews since the old 16bit times, there is a noticeable shift that happened over that time period. And I`m not sure it`s a good shift. Games nowadays can be patched on all systems including the consoles without any issues and in most cases booting up a game for the first time on release day will prompt a notification that a patch is available. As games got bigger and more c...

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

374d 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...

The Stacked Click Method.

377d ago ... I want to start off by discussing one of my very favourite genres in gaming. The isometric RPG. They are games I always enjoy (even the supposedly average ones) and I have played a lot of them. Be it loot based action or story driven adventure, I love them equally. And love is the right word. Be it Baldurs Gate 1 and 2, Planescape Torment, Icewind Dale 1 and 2, Fallout 1 and 2, NWN, Divine...

The Cold Hard Truth of the "Next Gen"

443d ago ... I haven't been very active on this forum lately, due to illness, difficulties in staying awake and other things. Although, even when I'm not posting, I'm scrolling and observing from the outside when I have the strength. I've always felt like an outsider in terms of how I stand on particular issues; gathering evidence and making my own judgement based on my sense of justice. I go by the golden...

Next-gen Xbox Rumors: Finding Reason in Madness

508d ago ... Well....that just happened. If you've been living under a rock in past few days, let me go ahead and explain the situation that's been spewing out literally everywhere online. In a discussion between two individuals, Microsoft Studio’s Creative Director, Adam Orth, decided to voice his opinion on 'always-on' devices. Without explicitly attaching his claim to an unannounced next-gen Xbox,...

What I'd like to see out of Fallout 4

547d ago ... As most may have already heard, word through the grapevine is that Fallout 4 is likely to be taking place in Boston. Boston MA, home of Fenway Park, JFK library, and Oh yeah... The Commonwealth. Which means only one thing children; tech. We're talking about more robobrains, plasma pistols, and gauss rifles than you can shake a chrome-plated stick at. And let's not forget our loveable cyborg fri...

Developed VS. Published

600d ago ... This is a subject that I want to hopefully clarify, because there seems to be some confusion here. I remember a while back, when Dishonored came out, people were refusing to buy Dishonored because it had Bethesda stamped on it. They, mostly PS3 owners, were angry because of Bethesda's debacle and mishandling of the PS3 version of TESV:Skyrim, resulting in the PS3 version suffering stuttering fr...

Death to Added Gameplay DLCs With A Big, Barb-Wire Covered Billy Club

688d ago ... I've never liked DLCs. Ever. Even more so for the games that have downloadable content on the disc itself with no way to access the content without paying for it. I come from the oldschool way of thinnking: if I pay for it, I own it outright and it had better have everything I need to use it without coming back to the maker. That said, I've only bought one DLC in my life--one for Fallout 3...

Fallout 4, what it should take from Skyrim and NV

734d ago ... Alright, with the recent news of Bethesda doing research in Boston(a.k.a. the Commonwealth) I think you should take a look at what Bethesda should integrate from Skyrim and New Vegas. Now, personally I wasn't a fan of Obsidian's New Vegas, I felt it had a some valid points but fell flat on what caught me on to Fallout 3. I found my self being able to play through Fallout 3 3 and a half times...

Why I'm getting into PC gaming (again)

936d ago ... I'm a long-time PC gamer who hasn't had an up-to-date rig for at least 7 years. Eh, it's probably been nearly 10 years. While console gamers where going ga-ga over Final Fantasy 7, I was playing Interplay's Fallout and Baldur's Gate. When people were playing Windwaker and Soul Calibur II, I was playing Shogun Total War and the very first Call of Duty. I love PC gaming. I have at least a dozen P...

Shelving Skyrim PS3

955d ago ... So, after quite a few hours invested in what is easily one of the best games I have played, I have to shelve Skyrim before I could possibly complete it. Lag isn't the only problem. Yes, I did do everything I could to minimize it, such as turning off the autosave. But lo, I got so immersed in the game I forget to save from time to time and I die. Then I have to replay the quest I was on. Ma...

Game reviewers are doing a disservice to gamers

997d ago ... As I'm sure you've heard by now their has been a massive kerfuffle over the PS3 version of Skyrim. This isn't just some little bug or glitch as you might expect on a game of Skyrim's scope, but is in fact game breaking and renders the game completely unplayable. First let me say that this bug has been a problem with Bethesda from Fallout 3, it does effect other versions of the game but none...

Why Bethesda Will Save Gaming Part 1:

1035d ago ... This is actually my first ever blog. I'm more of a reader than a writer so odds are this will be a tedious read but I feel the need to speak up before it's too late or I'll never forgive myself. I admit that I'm a ranter which is why this will be in 2 part's rather than 1 and I apologise to anyone who feels I've wasted their time. Now then. Oblivion. Fallout 3. And now Skyrim. (And I...

Not every video game needs multiplayer

1095d ago ... Its a sad fact that so many younger gamers will pass on a great game if it doesnt feature multiplayer. They miss out on many incredible AAA single player games like Dead Space , Bioshock , Oblivion , Deus Ex and many others. Its more a generational thing than anything else. You see us old fart gamers that grew up playing video games in the 80s and 90s were winged on hundreds of excelle...

Fanboy meaning is up for debate.

1261d ago ... I am seemingly the the only person that believes fanboy isn't a negative term. I said the media turned the word negative but we fan did as well by making it an insult. I am a proud Playstation fanboy and you might think I hate the 360 but I don't, I have zero problem with X box, PC, Apple, or any other fanboy. I simply don't care for the the other systems, check my comments I hardly go into 360...

Adiction-simplicity ratio.

1289d ago ... Remember Pac Man, Tetris, Asteroids, Pong?If your answer is yes, then you are the same as hundreds of thousands of gamers who have a memory relating one or more of those games.But since then,things in the gaming industry have changed,but does that mean that there are no longer programmers as creative as Toru Iwatani or Alexey Pajitnov? I know what you're gonna say,graphics and advanced technol...

PS3 or 360... which is REALLY Better?

1308d ago ... With this blog post I'm going to attempt to answer.... SUCKERS!!! Now that I have your attention.... I own a PS3. I like my PS3. I have never played an Xbox 360. So, to be honest, I don't know what I'm missing. Therefore, I'm not missing anything. I'm fine with my PS3. Does that make me a "Fanboy?" I don't think so. From the Urban Dictionary: "An arrogant person who goes into an outburs...

Sequels Slump: What's Wrong with the Industry?

1314d ago ... Game sequels have been popping out faster than anyone can play them. It appears that for every original intellectual property we get, there are at least two sequels that we have to suffer through. Just look at games like Fable 3 or Fallout New Vegas. These are games that offer slightly more content with kinda improved graphics for the same game play you already had. Sure there are some new w...

My Game of the Year Awards

1344d ago ... Alright everyone. It's that time of the year again. It's the VGAs. And as always there was plenty of Bull with the awards. Here's the list of the games I think should have won. Game of the Year: Mass Effect 2 Runner up: God of War III Studio of the Year: Bioware Runner up: Quantic Dreams Character of the Year: Commander Shepard Runner up: Ezio Xbox360 Game of the Year: Mass Effe...
