The Little Engine That Could

36d ago ... Folks, something glorious is happening right now and it's very hard to describe without coming across as a raving lunatic but here goes - Are you ready for this? The Japanese gaming scene is on the resurgence. I know, it's crazy, right? But there it is, right in front of our eyes we're seeing rapid announcements of Japanese IPs (both old and new) being revealed right before our eyes. B...

Can Microsoft Take Back Gaming This Holiday 2015?

106d ago ... I don’t know but I am excited to see what they will do. I own a PS4 but I’m a gamer. So I still get excited for new games. And this fall it looks like Microsoft is done playing around and is about to release it’s big guns. That means it’s franchise players like Halo 5 and Gears of War. If that doesn’t get the hardcore gamers excited I don’t know if anything will. Hell I don’t even own the sy...

How Alienated can the game industry become for a gamer?

196d ago ... How Alienated can the game industry become for a gamer? Before 2006 gaming wasn't much of an active role for me, there was plenty of other activities that seized my mind that at the time I wouldn't even believe or even fathom the idea that after picking up an xbox360 it would turn into my own lifestyle. I remember the day like it was yesterday. I had a good 400 bucks to blow at gamestop,...

Falling Into The Trap Of Playing Cult Classics

325d ago ... During the spring and summer of 2014 I decided to go into my videogame backlog. My backlog at the time was deep and had a large number of games listed as follows: Max Payne (entire series), Vanquish, Tomb Raider (2013), Alan Wake, Bayonetta , Fallout: New Vegas, God of War: Ascension, Gears of War: Judgement, Ratchet and Clank HD collection, Jak and Daxter collection and many old games for the...

A possible effect Microsoft needs to be mindful of

380d ago ... Like a man beating a dead horse I am going to write about the Tomb Raider deal. I am not a huge believer in writing about something that nearly every publication or users has already written about. But I feel one aspect of the deal is being overlooked; the one company that has the most to lose out in the deal is not Square Enix but Microsoft. Microsoft is no stranger to buying timed/exclusiv...

Is Innovation in gaming dead?

517d ago ... There was a period in gaming history when developers consistently sought out new and fresh approaches to making games. Some games were so great it changed the face of gaming. Games such as: Metal Gear Solid, Grand Theft Auto 3, Gears of war, and 2K5 football not only pushed the boundaries of their perspective genres, but also became measuring sticks of sorts. When a new fresh game hits the scen...

The cost of AAA game production is putting a chokehold on creativity in the mainstream

783d ago ... The needless expense of AAA video game production is killing creativity and originality in mainstream console gaming It has been said by countless game reviewers and bloggers before me, but I feel I must say it yet again. The practice of throwing insane amounts of cash at AAA projects causes a need to adhere to generic tried and true formulas, as well as attempting to appeal to as wide an au...

Opinion: We Run the Risk of Visual Stagnation

859d ago ... So far, the most we've seen from next generation graphics is primarily from Sony's Playstation 4 reveal event. We've seen the machine supposedly running game engines that look pretty close to CGI visuals that you would sometimes see in an animated movie. Technologically speaking, it's pretty cool. It certainly has many Sony fans excited, with many wondering where that leaves the upcoming new Xb...

Upcoming current generation games I am excited about

864d ago ... 2013 has provided some great gaming experiences. Games like Dead Space 3, Tomb Raider, Gears of War, God of War, Bioschock and Crysis 3 showcase there is still a lot of life left with the current gen systems. This year is off to a great start and there has not been any shortage of good gaming experiences. As this year is already 4 months in and with next generation systems on the horizon....

What happened to games being challenging?

864d ago ... Maybe it's just me, but I can't help but notice how games today are being engineered to be much easier than they used to be. You old-school gamers know what I'm talking about; working for a month solid to get through Zelda II: Link's Adventure. Busting your ass to work your way through Metal Gear Solid. It seems like the whole idea of gaming has become a quick "jerk off" effect of instant grati...

Three things Microsoft can do for their Next-Gen Xbox

883d ago ... Amidst all the rumors and speculation regarding Microsoft's next generation gaming console, their success with the Xbox 360 is nothing short of a milestone achievement for the Redmond company, especially when compared to their initial entrance into the console gaming market with the original Xbox. Being the first console to launch the seventh generation back in 2005, Microsoft were primed an...

The Gaming Industry and why some people should put up or shut up.

915d ago ... Unless you don't have internet, you'd have heard by now that EA has stated that they will be instituting microtransactions in all their future games from now on. Needless to say, this has sparked an outrage from gamers all over the world. No one likes to be nickel and dimed. No one enjoys the thought of games moving from a form of art entertainment, to a spreadsheet of numbers and statistics on...

Making Nintendo a Must Have Again....

940d ago ... Making Nintendo a Must Have Again……. Gears of War makes you buy Xbox, Metal Gear makes you buy Playstation. What makes us buy Nintendo? The natural answer to this is Mario but this really does not appeal to the hardcore gaming world as others do. In my opinion they need one game to move from hand held to console and then sales would go through the roof. The game……………Pokémon. I have ha...

Resident Evil 6: A True Horror Story

1063d ago ... Just to clear it up for those that don't appreciate irony, the horror of Resident evil is not the exquisite dialog and compelling story line. It's the fact that put quite simply, this game absolutely sucks. I apologise in advance for the rant. But the quality of game play alone is completely below par, so much that even attempting the Chris or Jake play through's are nothing more than a sad...

Resident Evil Reset

1063d ago ... There comes a time in a franchises life when one of it's sequels released becomes such a huge success, in not only the franchises history but in gamings as well that the only place the franchise can go next is down. Resident Evil 4 was released in January 2005, the game reached universal critical acclaim for it's fresh take on the series and new direction it had taken, back then though revie...

Have you forgotten the core, Microsoft?

1174d ago ... First of all, sorry for any grammar failes in this blog. I just used Google translate to translate it from Norwegian to English. I've been a PlayStation guy in my entire life. I have a PlayStation 2 that I got for Christmas a few years ago, I have two PSPer, a PS Vita and PlayStation 3 I've always liked Sony for their focus on the game and especially the core players. For about 3 years ag...
