Finally Connecting with the Kinect in Mass Effect

28d ago ... Premise: I enjoyed a game more with Kinect than without it. Yes, seriously. Yes, this title was just too good not for me to use. Yes, I am terribly late to the party with all you cool kids in your current gen swag. Yes, I am still messing around with last gen hardware, the likes of which no one really liked anyways and is agreed to be vastly improved in function, ease and UI in its...

Don't Get Me Wrong, But...

42d ago ... There's that familiar old adage again. The one we, who find ourselves in the crossfire of popular opinion, must employ as we dane to approach a more meaningful discussion about this young, developing medium. Don't get me wrong, I love all platforms. Don't get me wrong, I'm not biased. Don't get me wrong, but I see no benefit in swinging such an empty disclaimer ahead of our insights as th...

Wii U owners unite for 3rd party support.

98d ago ... Alright so it’s no secret that 3rd party support generally sucks on Nintendo consoles. I’ve been on the defending side of both parties, but honestly the only party that can change the current situation and lack of proper 3rd party support is you, the gamer. So here’s a list of good no great 3rd party games that every Wii U should own if they’re a fan of the genre. Oh and remember, please “BUY N...

LittleBigPlanet: Stunted by a poor financial model

100d ago ... LittleBigPlanet has been somewhat of a successful series for Sony and they have just unveiled their newest title in the series, LittleBigPlanet 3, for the PS3 and PS4. From October 2008 to January 2013 8 million user generated levels were created and published [1]. I am proudly a creator of two of those 8 million levels even though those levels were nothing compared to some of the amazing creat...

SteamWorld Dig: “From a man in the mines”

126d ago ... [b]By Herobyclicking[/b] I felt naked without a duster, hat and cigarello as the title screen flashed and the theme music haunted my ears. [i]SteamWorld Dig[/i] has all the trappings of the spaghetti western, neatly, if not oddly, framed in a post-apocalyptic, robo-steam driven future. Though developers Image & Form are located in Sweden, the American Western is no stranger. “I think it star...

Hack 'n' Slash: Coded for your pleasure

132d ago ... [b]From Herobyclicking[/b] If you have ever used the tilde key to bring up a console screen to enter a console command on a PC game then you have at least a sense of what to expect with Hack ‘n’ Slash. It’s not cheating, it’s dissecting. It’s looking at the game through the developer’s eyes.  It pulls back the curtain but keeps the nostalgia of classic console gaming intact. Plug in and debu...

Spacebase DF-9: Most fun had in a vacuum

132d ago ... [b] From Herobyclicking[/b] “Ground control to Major Tom, please revoke early access to this player, “ would be heard over the speakers of the mission control room in my mind whilst I asphyxiated yet another crew of space pioneers. Against their better judgement, base after base has been put in my care. Time and time again I manage to smite the hopeful spacers. I won’t stop. Ever. Spaceb...

How the Fox is Gamings Next Big Superhero

177d ago ... Authors Note: This article is best read after completing the campaign of Watch_Dogs as it does contain some story SPOLIERS. Give Frank Castle a cellphone with tremendous hacking capabilities and a slightly more sociable demeanor and you may be remiss to mistake him for Aiden Pearce, the vigilante from Watch_Dogs. At his core, Aiden is a slightly more realistic take on Batman (albeit with a...

I Am Disappoint: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

209d ago ... Hi, Hello! I'd like to discuss with you a bit of disappointment I've had with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Now before I have you dive into a sea of text, I need to toss out a disclaimer: I've never played Revengeance, and I'm so terribly apathetic towards it that the demo is the last thing I ever touched. So what disappointment could I be talking about? Well, just like last time with Grou...

The biggest BS in gaming history.

258d ago ... I'm surprised nobody else has bought this up, but if I have to be the one to do it, so be it. So, what IS the biggest BS in gaming history? Underpowered consoles? Too big a focus on graphics? The prices being too high? None of those. Memorize this line: "You speak of innovation when any attempt at it is dismissed as a gimmick." Do me a favor. Pass that saying on, because it NEEDS to b...

Get it through your skulls;Graphics. Don't. MATTER! (To an extent.)

263d ago ... So news recently came out that Watch Dogs was apparently downgraded graphicswise after its delay. I don't understand HOW they made it look worse. I usually respect the game creators, but I don't know what made them think it looked better than before. I could've had this back in November for the PS4 or Wii U or Xbox 360, yet it was delayed to "polish." Now, is the downgrade worthy of CANCELLI...

Why Gamers Should Care About EA on the Worst Company List

306d ago ... We are quickly approaching that time of the year again. The Consumerist website will be tallying up their nominees for the Worst Company in America. Already they have been getting flooded with votes from participants about who they believe is the worst company. Once again, Electronic Arts has been nominated by many people and I know what some you just did. You either sighed, rolled your eyes, o...

Memoirs of a Senior Gamer: Ye Olde Arcade

307d ago ... So here's how this is going down, your father thought it would be good if you two spent some time with me. Suppose he wants yous to learn some wisdom from an old timer, heh lord knows he never did! Now I don’t like either of you and I'm sure as hell you don’t like me. You give me any lip and you’re on denture duty. Repeat offenders clean the bed pan. Understand? You there, not you the chubby on...

GTA Online: Rockstar's Aim - Misguided or Target Locked?

314d ago ... In recent events - as some of you may already be aware - there was an outbreak of exploits within the virtual world of Grand Theft Auto Online, the subsidiary of Rockstar Games' award-winning fifth instalment into the Grand Theft Auto series. One of these exploits included glitched farming, which allows players to continuously garner significant amounts of Reputation Points, which allowed them...

Why I play: Uncharted 3's MP

374d ago ... Uncharted 3. When you read that, Im sure you'll be thinking bout Nathan Drake and his adventures in the sand. Surely, you wouldnt be thinking bout its multiplayer. Well, Im writing this blog here to change that. Whenever you see the name Uncharted 3, I want you to remember not only of its pretty grand single player, I want you to remember its pretty dang fun mutliplayer. Here's some of the reas...

Breaking Down Xbox one (Part 1: Hardware)

397d ago ... Hardware The Wii U has been hacked (as far as revealing hardware), and Sony has been very open regarding the innards of the PlayStation 4; however, Microsoft has been very tight lipped regarding any finite details regarding their successor to the Xbox 360, Xbox One. All we really have from Microsoft is 8GB of DDR3 RAM 68 GB/s, 32MB eSRAM 200 GB/s, an 8-core custom CPU (still based on an AMD...

Console Contradiction

424d ago ... This is my first blog post, actually its my first post period. So please bare with me. I'm about to talk about the 2 next gen consoles. With Gamescom, TGS, and E3 all finished, I think its fine to compare the consoles now. Of course with new information coming out each day, we can never know what to expect. The PS4 could suck with one post, vice versa with Xbox One. So here's my story. My...

Regarding Ubisoft's Muck-Up of Watch Dogs

484d ago ... Yesterday, a trailer showcasing actress/comedienne Aisha Tyler's cameo appearance in Watch Dogs was released. For some, Tyler's appearance was nothing to blink twice over, while for others, footage showcasing her character could not come fast enough. Now, I'm sure most people are wishing it never came at all. The [unfinished] video showcased Aisha Tyler walking down a street in the more busi...

8th Generation - The Generation of Blood

541d ago ... Looking back, the 7th Gen of gaming was fairly tame. No one actually "lost". Wii, PS3, 360, DS, and PSP each carved out a respectable market, and a few of these (like the PS3 and 360) are still getting big-name releases. Sure, there were times of drought. Sure, there were moments when a console got bruised (like RRoD, or the PSN hack), but no one failed outright. It was the first time that had...
