Are Games Spreading the Idea of Violence?

54d ago ... Yesterday I have been reading a news from The Guardian, which was about the sale of the recently released video game Grand Auto Theft banned in Australia due to violence against women. I wouldn't discuss violence against women specifically because once it's violence it against all kind of people. The article wasn't too long but it raised a quite large controversial debate topic: is the idea vio...

Industry Issues – Crytek and Kim Kardashian

179d ago ... As Crytek UK suffers an increasing number of walkouts, Kim Kardashian looks to make an incredible amount of money off of her mobile game – Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. Crytek in Nottingham has faced a number of problems in recent months, most importantly its staff not being paid. After Hasit Zala, the director of Homefront: The Revolution recently walked out, it seems like these problems are n...

Turtle Beach's Beautiful Game Search is Turning Out to Be a Joke.

200d ago ... Turtle Beach recently started a "campaign" to crown the best game of all time. They've narrowed it down to the top 15 games that people have been pushing for. Here is that list: Borderlands 2 Call of Duty: Ghosts Dwarf Fortress Far Cry 3 FIFA 14 Final Fantasy X Grand Theft Auto V Halo 3 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Pac Man Resident Evil Super Mario Galaxy The Elder Scrolls V:...

The viewpoint of a single gamer

229d ago ... Never thought I'd be a person to do a blog but after the latest "scandal" going through the gaming world I felt I had to take to my keyboard/phone and let loose. Please bear in mind I've never done one of these, most likely never will again so cherish the moment (or let it die in the submissions area) and feel free to criticise/point out areas I need to approve . The topic I'm referring...

8th Gen - The Death (Finally!) of Corridor Shooters?

595d ago ... The blog picture comes from here: http://memearchive.net/memerial.net/1371/picture.jpg , and I think it's a fitting way to describe the modern FPS genre. I like shooters. I really do, but I've been a bit worn out on them recently. I have my reasons, but chief among them would be how every FPS these days seems to be a corridor shooter. I grew up on shooters like Duke Nukem, Strife, Syst...

5 forgotten promises of the 3DS

652d ago ... Do some digging into Nintendo's own announcements for the system and you'll begin to find that the current state of the 3DS is a far cry from what we were led to expect. Promises were made. Features were implied. Yet, here we are today with a system that isn't all it could have been. 1.An online revolution Oh, Nintendo. When will you learn? The 3DS could have been the start of another gamin...

Are JRPGs dying? (How Japan can be relevant again in the West)

653d ago ... It was with a sense of awe that I booted up RPGs back in the day. These games felt so new, so fresh, so full of depth and exciting possibilities. Growing up, my dad was an engineer who always happened to have a great PC, and thus I was introduced to a lot of Western RPGs like Ultima and Wasteland. However, it was the RPGs on the NES, SEGA Genesis, and SNES that really captured my imagination, g...

I Want My Boss Battles Back

738d ago ... Ah boss battles: the classic checkpoint marker and definitive end to many games. But this generation their importance has started to dwindle as has the effort put into creating them by many developers, so where are boss battles now and what significance do they play in modern gaming? We have recently seen the introduction of Quick-Time Event boss battles, arguably the worst use of this lazy...

Most Overrated Game of 2012...

739d ago ... Goes to Far Cry 3. Yes, Far Cry 3 was a good game. Fans of the game, please don't feel the need to leap to its defence and tell me why you thought it was better than everything else, and how revolutionary it was. I enjoyed Far Cry 3, which I why I completed it (finally) recently. However, as much as I enjoyed Far Cry 3, I couldn't help but feel much of the game's much touted strengths were a...

Stillborn Articles

750d ago ... Something incredibly unfortunate has come to my attention. While perusing the pending articles section and approving/reporting/tracking articles, I noticed that many articles are being passed with 0-40 degrees. That doesn't seem horrible at first glance, until you realize something that does to them as they enter the front page. As articles with less than 50 degrees enter the first page......

Some Gaming Taste Buds

754d ago ... New and impressive games are coming out all the time; whether they're small, independently developed titles or big budget, triple A titles. So many games beg for our gaming attention, and usually, the big budget games are the first to take hold. I enjoy playing a lot of these games as well, especially games like Grand Theft Auto, Assassin's Creed, Far Cry 3, and Skyrim. Some of these games neve...

I can definitely say I enjoyed E3 conferences (almost LIVE) - part2

960d ago ... UBISOFT JUST DANCE 4 I confess, I watched Ubisoft's conference in playback (was too late for me to watch live) and skipped the first part ^_^'... FAR CRY 3 absolutely crazy, boobs for starters were quite a novelty but I appreciate a game that is not shy, since it seems you can kill people in the most gory ways, yet a female breast can generate such a big fuss (which is crazier than this...

E3 2011 Ubisoft Press Conference

1332d ago ... Ok this press conference wasn't as boring as the EA one but not much made me look forward to the next 12 months. Anyway here's my responses to the announcements. - Rayman Origins. Seems like fun. Also has local co op like a lot more games should. - Driver San Francisco. I wasn't a fan and still not sold on it. Also confused on what's going on. - Far Cry 3. Not my type of game but vis...

Privateers on the Electronic Bay

1384d ago ... Take a trip to the high seas about two centuries ago and you'd find yourself in a precarious position: trying to navigate the tumultuous waves while also hoping to steer clear of pirates looking to claim your ship and its contents for their booty. Now come back to the modern day and imagine the same scenario. Outside of perhaps the region near the horn of Africa, it is difficult to think such...

Crysis 2 single player impressions: PS3

1401d ago ... Graphical multiplat wunderkind Crysis 2 has been out barely a week and I've managed to play it a bit since getting hands on my PS3 copy on Sunday. Seeing as it's one of the biggest releases of the year so far, and definitely the biggest multiplatform release in this gamer's humble opinion since Red Dead: Redemption, I thought I'd offer my impressions on the games' campaign mode so far, includin...

Why I've bought every game with a level editor

1655d ago ... DOOM, Halo 3, Little Big Planet, ModNation Racers, Far Cry 2, Crysis, TimeSplitters, etc. I've bought all of them, because it makes me feel one step closer to making my own game. I've tried the C++ route, well... I've tried and given up. I've tried even using game engines like Unity and UDK, and given up. I cannot grasp making a game when it offers stupidly high amounts of options, or cod...
