The Division Beta Preview/Review (It will leave gamers divided)

13d ago ... I think the Division is a decent game, but it has some glaring issues that need to be fixed many of which are going to take at least a year to iron out. Campaign: The campaign I feel is going to be nothing special. The cast of characters, the acting, and voice acting are all the same old mediocre shooter type crowd. I hope I'm wrong, but the campaign seems to exist to provide a challeng...

What Sony should change for a reboot of "Playstation Allstars"

23d ago ... 1 - The art style First of all, they need to give the franchise a new style. The original's artstyle was quite bland and the realistic + cartoony characters didn't mesh well at all, leaving the aesthetics to be pretty unpleasing at times. To combat this glaring problem, design the game around a 2D cartoony style, like Guilty Gear or Blazblue, or even make it 3D cel shaded, like Street Fighte...

PSVR not a revolution, but a step towards the evolution of gaming

64d ago ... Let’s get this out of the way, PSVR works as advertised. The VR headset for PlayStation is a good VR device.

FOBs The Tumor of MGS V

78d ago ... Recently I got back into Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain after spending a couple weeks on Fallout 4, I'd like to keep this blog centered around the FOB feature of the game and not have this spiral out into MGS V bashing in the comments section due to the other aspects of the game. With that out of the way let's start. As I said I recently got back into TPP with one of the first things th...

The horror of losing gaming’s treasured history

102d ago ... After E3, Gamescom, Tokyo Game Show, and other pressers have concluded, we finally get a comfy holiday season to sit down and play games…for a short while.

Sequels To Old Franchises: Beautiful Evolutions or Horrible Mutations?

142d ago ... With the recent release of the long awaited Metal Gear Solid V, a sequel to the critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid first released on the PS1 in 1998, I ended up coming away from my experience with the exact same summed up response I have after playing many sequels of old school franchises. “It’s a Good Game but it Should Have Been a New IP” This isn’t an article designed to talk about...

Shadow walking your way through Leap of Fate

195d ago ... [b]From Mattieu Bégin, Co-Founder of Clever-Plays[/b] When we started designing Leap of Fate, we thought real hard about how to define our gameplay. What would set the game apart in the eye of the player? The answer lies in our tagline; "the hack-and-slash rogue-like". It's a mouthful, but it does reflect very well what the game is: a mix between the room-based, intense burst of combat fr...

DevBlog: Design Insights of Fate Tectonics

198d ago ... [b]From Andrew Traviss, Co-Founder, Golden Gear[/b] Sometimes when you're working on a game for a very long time, a particular design problem keeps coming back no matter what you throw at it. I believe the one we've been facing is a fairly common one; Fate Tectonics is open-ended and lets players do their own thing for the most part, so it's not often clear to many what is expected from them...
