Rage of the Tomb Raider and Why You Should Care.

9d ago ... I don't like exclusives. I don't mean the games themselves but the fact that they are limited to one system. Exclusives are made, and thought up primarily to sell the system they're made for. The direct implication of the console manufacturer into the development process is often a positive thing as the game is better optimized and takes full advantage of the hardware at it's disposal. Also som...

Rant: Why Gamers Are Killing Progress

112d ago ... I'm not even going to try to come up with some kind of fitting opening sentence for this. I am going to write a disclaimer though. Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this blog are OPINIONS! They are NOT demands on anyone, and whatever you want to spend your own money on is completely up to you, so don't try to come in here and tell me that I'm telling you how to spend your money because I...

Video game Violence and the hypocrisy relating to it.

138d ago ... GTA V, The Last of Us, Ryse, God of War. What do these games have in common? Well, CONTROVERSY. For around 20 years games, gamers and gaming have faced controversy frequently regarding the depictions of sexual, violent or adult themed content found in them. Before video games there were moral panics over, comics, rock and roll, rap and even theater productions in the time of Shakespeare and...

Nintendo hate is out of hand.

213d ago ... Over the past few years it seems Nintendo is getting a lot of hate and criticism. From claims that Nintendo "releases the same Ip" to "Nintendo games are for kids". Lets cut to the chase, Nintendo releases one major Zelda/Mario/fire emblem/ every other game pretty much once or twice per console. What I want to know is why is it not okay for the big N to do this but is perfectly fine to have a l...

PlayStation: A Well Rounded 3rd, 2nd, 1st Party, Indie & PC Developers' Platform

264d ago ... The 3rd Party Developers If you study carefully since day one of the original PlayStation Sony let 3rd party developers take center stage spotlight before their 2nd and first party. Its has been their strategy since day one. Their relationship with 3rd party developers is second to none! A strategy completely opposite that of Nintendo. And the strategy ever imitated by MS even to the po...

New directions for God of War

357d ago ... Many installments of God of War have come and gone in the PlayStation era. While it is a milked franchise, I do think it has a couple of legs left on it. I’d bet a decent amount of money that one or maybe two installments may be coming in the next couple of years. Santa Monica is a proven studio and will most likely finish off the series the right way. I have, what I think, are two great ideas...

I'm young, and don't enjoy playing video games that much.

379d ago ... (Note: I posted this on AP Forums under the name ShinigamiKing, so don't think I'm a troll.) I'm young, yet I don't enjoy playing video games that much. Whether it's God of War, Uncharted, Final Fantasy, DBZ/Naruto games, NFL Street, Madden, or Angry Birds, I don't seem to truly enjoy playing video games, at least not the way others do. I like going on forums like NeoGaf and seeing discus...

Sequelization: It's a double standard.

384d ago ... There's a question I often hear posed by many gamers and it goes something like this. "Why is it that Mario games always seem to get a free pass when it comes to sequels and rehashes, yet game franchises like Assassins creed, God of War, Halo and the like get criticised and sometimes even marked down for it?" Well I have a theory for why that seems to be the case and it goes as follows....

Enough With Wanting Sequels

415d ago ... You know, you'd think with a new generation of consoles ready to move into full swing, people would be excited for new experiences and trying out never before seen ideas, but all I've seen lately are people wanting more of the same. Well, not "lately" but it's been talked about a lot more. I've ragged on the Xbox One a lot recently because Microsoft are terrible for the industry, but the one...

Sony’s E3 Show and Rating

443d ago ... Sony has had it easy thus far with the PS4, thanks to the competition’s fumbles. So did they take it easy at E3 or did they kill it. Jack Trenton: Yes by this point due to all the gifs the PlayStation bosses are celebrities. Jack comes out and thanks the fans and gives a quick overview of the PS3, PS Vita, and PS4. It’s nice, but let’s get to the games Jack. Batman Origins Counter Sp...

Is Polygon really anti-Sony?

447d ago ... After seeing Phil Koller gave The Last of Us a 7.5, I knew a wave of anger was headed towards Polygon. Oh was it ever. Accusations of being on Microsoft's payroll and low balling Playstation exclusives flew left and right. So, I decided to investigate. I combed through every playstation exclusive game they reviewed. Each title is followed by 3 scores: The score Polygon gave the game, the...

My Top 3 Games All Time.

467d ago ... Ever since I can remember, I've been holding a controller. I've had many consoles, and memories with them too, which made me wonder, What are the top 5 games I've ever played? So, I decided to compile a list. This list is my opinion. #1. Sonic The Hedgehog 2. Yep. Sonic 2. Not 1. Why? I hear you screaming at your dogs... Well it's quite simple. Sonic 2 took what had been a revolutionary p...

Buying up 3rd party exclusivity is a band aid on a severed artery

482d ago ... Before I begin let me apologise for the slightly grotesque imagery in the title, I recently finished God of War: Ascension and now I’m having trouble conjuring up tasteful metaphors. Ok, we’ve been hearing a lot of rumors suggesting Microsoft may be as much as “six months behind” as far as first party production of Xbox 3 content is concerned. Apparently their solution is “aggressively trying...

Upcoming current generation games I am excited about

493d 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....

Video Games Can Never Be Art So Long As PR Bows To Pressure

534d ago ... I was going to write up a blog about the importance of characters like Princess Peach and Princess Zelda in their respective games, but I decided to table that in favour of a more pressing issue. If you hadn't heard by now, Sony bowed to the pressure of White Knights all over the internet and changed the name of the God of War Ascension trophy from "Bros before Hos" to "Bros before Foes". So...

Thoughts on GoW: Ascension Trophy, 'Bros Before Hos.'

538d ago ... Before I start, let me point out that these are, very literally, my first thoughts on the topic. I am open to other points of view, and encourage them. So yeah, thanks and enjoy reading. 'Bros Before Hos.' The phrase often used to guilt a buddy into hanging in the man-cave, rather than going out to dinner with his girlfriend. To those who don't know, however, it is also the title of a Playst...

Gamescom 2012 recap and played games

735d ago ... Gamescom is a cool event and I'm glad I attended it this year as well. I really enjoyed the games, I really hated the Razer and Roccat booths that make such a deafening noise you can't hear what you're playing. I missed Tony Hawk's show, but watched a very cool one of acrobatic bicycles! Well, let's talk about the games, then: SONY: first of all what’s always cool about Sony’s zone a...

PS4 confirmed in a way

807d ago ... Scott Rohde of SCEA has confirmed that a successor to the PS3 is coming he didn't say when we can expect the system or even when Sony will begin to release system specs or a potential launch window. Sony may not be making any official announcements but there are plenty of rumors circulating on the internet. Some rumors point towards Sony launching the PS4/Orbis ahead of the next Xbox during hol...

E3 2012 Predictions

829d ago ... In two short weeks, E3 2012 will be upon us and with it a slew of information about the future of the industry. "Innovation Unveiled" is this years slogan for the popular trade show but what can we expect to see out of the show? Many people have posted what they want to see out of E3 but none have posted what will realistically come out of the show. In the first part I will put what will be my...

E3 2012 and What I Want to See

902d ago ... Another year, another E3. Every year around June, the biggest and the best announcements and games are unveiled at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo). Every year something big is always announced at the worlds largest game trade show. It was E3 2005 that the PS3 and Wii were unveiled. In 2006, Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII were announced. And it was 2007 that we saw Killzo...
