Falling Into The Trap Of Playing Cult Classics

104d 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...

My Personal Top 15 best Looking Games In My 7th Gen Collection

136d ago ... Please remember this is my personal opinion, if you disagree respectively give yours and be constructive and unbiased. It also worth noting that I didn't play several graphical powerhouses such as Rage, Beyond Two Souls and GTA V (I however seen this played on PS3 on my TV ). 15: Red Dead Redemption (Played on XB 360) Red Dead Redemption set new standards for open world graphics, the draw...

Rage of the Tomb Raider and Why You Should Care.

160d 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

262d 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.

288d 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.

363d 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

414d 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

507d 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.

530d 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.

535d 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

566d 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

593d 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?

597d 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.

618d 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

633d 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

643d 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

684d 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.'

689d 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

886d 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

957d 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...
