Halo Reach: Fall of a World

1d 9h 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...

Video Calling on the PS4. Is it coming soon?

45d ago ... A new show called "Powers" just launched today. Fans of the comic book were excited to hear that Sony had teamed up to publish the show, and members of Playstation Plus were excited to hear that they would be receiving the entire season free. Excited by this show and the hype around the comic series I hop on my PS4 this morning and watched the first three episodes, sadly I have to wait weekly t...

Anita Sarkeesian: Not Playing With a Full Deck

158d ago ... From my open letter to the gaming media to my impressions of the controversial career of Phil Fish, we now bookend the core of my blogs regarding certain people attacking gamers with arguably the most despised opponent of video games since Jack Thompson. Her name is in the title and bears no introduction. We all know who Anita Sarkeesian is. We know what this woman has accomplished. She is infa...

The Video Game Crash of Today.

163d ago ... The video games crash of 1983, or know in Japan as the Atari shock did not make the future of the video games industry look promising. I’m sure the majority of us know about this of some sort. The industry was rising at a rapid rate and it was easy for anybody and everybody with some knowledge and know how to make video games for many consoles that where on the market at the time. At the top wa...

Lara Croft's Entry into the Console War

256d ago ... Since the beginning of time, there was always a central conflict in between both sides of the proverbial coin. With one grand spectrum at both ends of every cord, there was always one side versus another; man and woman, right and wrong, pro-life and pro-choice, Republican and Democrat, religion and atheist and the list goes on. However, those spectra are typically categorized into life itself,...

Could We Be Always, Sometimes, Monsters?

291d ago ... [b]By Fogknight[/b] How can you know when you are actually making  a morally correct choice or not? How can you know if the choices you made were the right or wrong ones? Will every bad decision bring a consequence or not? Those are some of the questions we ask ourselves during our lifetime before we make some serious decisions.

 Many games have used the element of morality to engage pla...

The Gaming War - Is It a Console War? No! Its the Free-to-Play Rip-Off!

322d ago ... First, I'd like to say, I have all three consoles and basically all AAA games as they come out! The console that I use everyday no matter what is the Xbox One! Why? Easy, my TV connects through it, and the voice controls with Kinect 2.0 work like a charm for me. It's not perfect but neither are we. Also, I'm no techie or graphic artist but I like the darker feel to some of the games on the X...

inFAMOUS Second Son: A Fantastic but Disappointing Letdown

364d ago ... WARNING SPOILERS WILL FOLLOW AGAIN SPOILERS WILL FOLLOW ... Right first of all lets make one thing clear, I like this game, so this isn't some massive rant on how the game is crap and how I hate it, I've actually enjoyed my time on it a lot. Anyway lets begin inFAMOUS Second Son for me was a game that I had been hyped up about since it was first announced for the PS4 in February...

Infamous Second Son: Its Ugly Side

374d ago ... Recently I got into a debate (that's all I seem to do) on here about the visuals for Infamous: Second Son. In my opinion, whilst the game certainly looks impressive most of the time, it is not the best looking next-gen game I have played. If anything, I believe that award should go to Killzone: Shadow Fall and some of Battlefield 4's cinematic set pieces in its campaign were a lot more jaw-d...

You never cancel a pre-order early.... especially over something as stupid as graphics.

389d ago ... Gamers have made me angry ALOT over the years. Here's a small list of the stuff I've dealt with. PS4 haters. Xbox One haters. Wii U haters. Cheaters in online multiplayer. People who try to "expose" you. People who want Ridley in Super Smash Bros 4. But THIS topic takes the cake. Some of you actually CANCELLED your Watch Dogs pre-orders because the graphics were "downgraded" from wh...

What's "sexy" and what isn't "sexy" in gaming

398d ago ... I hate classifying gaming as "Sexy" but to be honest I just wanted an excuse to show off that picture of Palutena. Anyway, there are many things that people like, and many things that people don't like. It's mainly all opinions, but here's mine. We'll see if you agree. What is "Sexy:" Graphics This was a no brainer. I've stated many times that I don't care about graphics as long as they lo...

The "other thing" the PS4 doesn't do.

411d ago ... The Playstation 4 has been out for a few months now and I don't care. I'm content with my PS3. Let me clarify though, I don't care NOW. I'm sure I'll care a little when inFamous comes out and a little more when Batman is released. I'll care when Final Fantasy XV shows up and I'll really care, if and when, The Last Guardian gets made. And really, this is what has happened since the dawn of gamin...

TitanFall Vs Infamous Second Son, the Real Battle Of PS4 vs XOne is Just Beginning

417d ago ... Wow I love battles like this, this is a good one, maybe not a fair one, but its the battle we have in front of us as the consoles start to really get ready to do battle. TitanFall Vs Infamous Second Son - Yes one is a FPS, and that does tend to be the favorite amongst a huge portion of gamers. But Second Son is holding it’s own, and that’s what makes this a really good battle, because gamers...

Next Gen Ports: Why I'd Happily Buy Them

438d ago ... As someone who has bought a PS3 and Xbox 360 I've played my fair share of games, some of them I've loved like the Mass Effect series for example, I've had years of pleasure from my first steps on Eden Prime to the Infamous ending at the Crucible, But I've had more than enough time to enjoy myself and move on to later games. Now this is not a feeling I'm having with the likes of The Last Of Us a...

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

463d 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...

PS4: No gimps please.

587d ago ... There's no question that the PS4 is more powerful than the Xbox One. The only thing we don't know about the PS4 (when it comes to specs) is how many GB of RAM it uses for games. I think it's 6GB? Let me know in the comments. But that's not the point of this blog. What's the point of it? To talk about what the PS4's 50% power advantage will actually throughout this generation. Obviously, 1st...

Why PAX now lives up to the name of their greatest controversy.

591d ago ... The Penny Arcade Expo! That’s really all you have to know in order to get at what I’m probably going to talk about in this piece, and sadly, it is a piece that I really do not want to have to talk about, because this is something that we, as gamers, should be above by now. We should be above these childish acts, and respect each other for who we are. To understand and respect that when someone...
