My Personal Top 15 Games of The Seventh Generation of Consoles

75d ago ... Note that this list is my personal opinion and only games that I played (and finished) are listed. Please be constructive and unbiased and feel free to state your opinion and list your own personal favorites. As a side note since I never owned a Wii during the 7th gen only PS3 and 360 games are listed. Also PC games are excluded as I don't play much on PC. Additionally PCs' don't really...

Was Destiny Destined to Be a Disappointment?

90d ago ... It is an understatement to say that Destiny's reception by gamers and some parts of the gaming journalism scene has been lukewarm at best with debate after debate about why another one of the biggest releases of the year turned out to be such a financial success but only a moderate critical success. Destiny is the first multiplatform game from former Halo game studio Bungie and was hyped up to...

How the Hype-Train Plowed Over Destiny

97d ago ... Oh the sad case of Destiny. How did the most anticipated game of 2014 fall so flat? A few short months ago everyone, myself included, was really enjoying the Beta, so how is it that after final release Bungie’s latest is now stuck at a Metacritic review score of 75/100 with a user score of 6.5? While review scores are definitely not everything when it comes to rating a video games worth, and us...

Microsoft's Misuse Of Their IPs

97d ago ... Microsoft has been criticized for the past few years for relying too heavily on a few IPs. The original Xbox had a large amount of exclusive games that were first party with games like Halo, Conker, Mechassualt, Crimson Skies, Forza, Project Gotham Racing, Rallisport Challenge, Brute Force, Blink, Voodoo Vince and several other titles being published (and owned) by MS for the Platform. Microso...

Destiny: Did Bungie Bite Off More Then They Could Chew?

102d ago ... After years of cryptic hints and teasers under the codename Project Tiger first details of Bungies next game leaked in November 2012 revealing concept art and some plot details about the game. Going by it's working title Destiny, Bungie wanted to "build a universe" that would "take on a life of its own. Many months later after the game's plot details leaked Bungie started to be more open about...

No, September's PS+ Lineup Does Not Suck

114d ago ... I've been seeing quite a few articles lately regarding September's PS+ lineup, and September's Games With Gold lineup. Many say GWG is better, some others beg to differ. Here's my whole take and opinion on this month's free games, and why everyone's complaining. (My post here is a bit long, I know, but bear with me). In case you haven't been catching up with the news lately, the free games t...

Rage of the Tomb Raider and Why You Should Care.

125d 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...

COD AW looks great but is just another lag fest.

128d ago ... With Activision finally making the jump to next gen I have been waiting for those magical words everyone wants to hear - dedicated servers. But, looks like COD is in the P2P hosting business for the duration. That means all your superb games and high K/D ratio mean exactly nothing. Not saying you don't have skill, but you don't know if the guy on the other end is shooting first and dying f...

Sony didn't need to win Gamescom; They have already won 2014

131d ago ... Today I saw two different strategies when comparing Microsoft to Sony and their approach to gamescom. Microsofts announcements were more aimed at selling more xbox ones, particularly in europe This was done by really bringing the hype for the big guns Fifa - Cod - Halo MCC/5 beta - Quantum Break - Fable - AC:U - Tomb Raider. The Fifa stuff was pretty pointless because we know of legends...

Octodad: Dadliest Catch: You, Slapstick and Sushi

153d ago ... [b]From Herobyclicking[/b] He must have been a gangly pre-teen. I am sure that he felt out of place standing a foot above everyone. He desperately looked for ways to fit in. He dressed and talked like the other kids, but still his awkwardness and clumsiness would would always make him fearful that he would reveal his true nature. He is an octopus. A true cephalopod, though he breathes air an...

At a Glance: Young Horses, Inc.

153d ago ... [b]Young Horses, Inc.[/b] The Young Horses were unofficially formed in 2011 at GDC. After being nominated as a Student Showcase Winner for Octodad 8 of the 18 original creators decided to form a company to make a bigger and better Octodad. Young Horses strives to push the boundaries of game design in order to create experiences that players have not seen before - they think that innovation...

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

162d 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:...

Sony Won Day 0 of E3 2014

194d ago ... Microsoft's press conference definitely caught my attention. C'mon Halo 1-4 for 60 bucks... aaaaaaand beta access to Halo 5! Not to mention an anniversary drop of Halo 2, probably the most competitive FPS of its time, I couldn't have been the only 20 year old kicking and screaming (Will Ferrel?) That moment they showed us Halo fans what we've been longing for. I instantly decided to save up...

More Wii U words

199d ago ... So, there are lots of things wrong with the Wii U. Marketing has been confusing, the games have come slowly, third party support is gone, the asking price is too high and the tech is too old. Nintendo doesn't have a problem that people need to insightfully boil things down to; they have a large, unlabeled umbrella full of issues collected like so many undesirable Pokemon. That's the lens the...

The Nintendo Way

254d ago ... My first post so go easy on me. But correct me if Im wrong. I feel like I like Nintendo's approach is what we should want when it comes to game development, and yes even the amount of time it takes to make their titles. The vibe I get from Nintendo is them not conforming to the insanely fast-moving video game market that we are seeing today from the gaming world. Have we come to expect m...

Fans: No Matter What You Choose, You've Won

276d ago ... I love video games; love 'em to death honestly. I've been gaming ever since I was a little baby, playing Mario when I was barely speaking sentences, then Sonic when I was into Saturday morning cartoons, Jak & Daxter in junior high, Halo when I was entering high school and now a little mix of everything in between. Video games are most certainly my passion and certainly hold a very dear place in...

Shaq Fooled

286d ago ... Hey! Did you hear? They are making a sequel to Shaq Fu! The tournament fighter centered on the Big Aristotle, often seen as one of the worst games of all time is back for round two! I’ll admit when I heard this news it did put a smile on my face. I’m a huge basketball fan, so I always welcome offbeat titles loosely centered on the sport. Games like Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City, Barkl...

What Is Machinima?

287d ago ... Okay, before we begin I have to make sure that people know that I did work for Machinima.Com back in the day and this discussion isn’t going to be talking about Machinima.com, just Machinima. So will only be mentioned vaguely Source Filmmaker. Machinima is short for Machine Cinema, it is most commonly used to describe vides made using video games. I am not talking about game commentaries, th...

7 Aspirations for Destiny

289d ago ... 2014 looks set to be an incredibly exciting time for the videogame industry. Next to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 edging gracefully into the twilight years of their impressive legacies, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are slowly but surely gathering the pace required to supersede them, and with games like Titanfall, Rust, Hotline Miami 2 and Dark Souls 2 all on the horizon, whatever your fo...

Why am I getting dejavu from 6th gen?

299d ago ... Everything that's been happening seems VERY familiar, and I'm surprised nobody else has noticed. The PS4 is the best choice. It's cheap, powerful, has great multiplats, a few great exclusives, and offers innovation aside from the console at a different price. The PS4 is selling extremely well, and is dominating the other 2. Didn't the EXACT same thing happen with the PS2? The PS2 is the b...
