Are Developers Getting Lazy or Did the Current Generation Arrive too Early?

24d ago ... As someone who started gaming back when Atari was a big deal - I've owned almost every single machine to come out. It was no shock to my wife when the latest Xbox and PS4 came out that I was right there on day one money in hand to pick up the latest shiny pieces of gaming joy. At first - my enthusiasm for the new systems was at an all time high but has since begun to wane with indifference w...

Can Microsoft Take Back Gaming This Holiday 2015?

46d 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...

Halo Reach: Fall of a World

72d ago ... I’ve played through the Halo 3 campaign more times than I can count. First, there was the initial solo play-through. Then, it was straight to Legendary co-op. After that came the ‘LASO’ attempts, the achievement collection runs and the painstaking endurance test represented by the infamous ‘Vidmaster Challenge’. And yet, even after all of my jaunts down the Tsavo Highway or fights to stem th...

Halo Fantasy Cast!

90d ago ... So I'm new to this site and I'm all about debating and hypothetical questions so I thought id start with a "What if?" here and see what other peoples thoughts are... HALO...Let's be honest here...the movie needs to happen. People want it. Give it to us already! Stop the delays! But anyways, I thought I'd make my own little dream cast for the film but I'm totally serious about and think these...

Re-innovative games.

107d ago ... Today I would like to present to you some of the games that changed the way we play right now. Games that did not invent a certain mechanic but rather improved upon it and was an inspiration to most games we play now ( hence the word re-innovative) Regenerating Health: Halo 2 (2004, Xbox) Some people credit the original “Halo" for introducing the generating health to the video game world...

How Alienated can the game industry become for a gamer?

136d 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,...

Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta Impressions

139d ago ... Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s (MCC for short) online launch woes had brought with it a heaping of disappointment and rage among many gamers, including this writer. Out of that ire and contempt from those circumstances came some amelioration in having the opportunity to take a gander at where this series will be going as far as multiplayer is concerned. And while I currently can’t see my...

My Personal Top 15 Games of The Seventh Generation of Consoles

271d 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?

286d 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

292d 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

293d 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?

297d 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

310d 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.

321d 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.

324d 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

326d 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...
