From Then Til Now: An Amazing Gaming Journey

290d ago ... I feel lucky to be one of those to say I have been around since the dawn of gaming. Born in the early 70s, I got to see the beginning of what would become one of the most sought after hobbies in human history. Something shared by those, young and old. An industry that was born in peoples basements and garages, to the multi million dollar corporations listed on the stock exchange. From crude 10...

Sony always plays the waiting game.

490d ago ... I'd like to start this story with my experience with the PS3. I didn't get it during launch since my parents didn't have a spare $600 to burn at the time. Mind you I was 12 around the time of PS3's launch. It wasn't until March 2007 that my father happily took me to Gamestop to purchase a $600 60GB PS3 and a copy of Resistance: Fall of Man the only notable title available at the time besides Mo...

There's Nothing "Wrong" With the Gaming Community

708d ago ... Everywhere you look these days, things are sensationalized. The television news stations have discovered that they need flair and fear to keep audience attention; a scary story about babies reacting badly to a vaccine is told to the viewer that it will be told coming up....then told again....and again....and again. They retell stories of violence until some people develop an irrational view o...

Farewell, "Good For a Wii Game"

765d ago ... When you consider a game, how do you judge it? Maybe you start by considering the genre and whether that fits your tastes? Maybe you consider the value behind the title and its offerings? Perhaps you account for visual flair? But have you ever asked "Is it good considering the platform?" Something that I found all too common in the way Wii games were judged in reviews and otherwise was...

Lair Tutorial and Review... Better Late Than Never

832d ago ... I've noticed a number of people scratching around and asking about this game either after buying it or just before buying it so I thought I'd put up a very old pre-updated Lair review about Lair to help people who want to up their bronze to silver gameplay to Gold stature. This Hyborian-like game got bad press for basically the nitpicking of glorified bloggers, and there are many cool thing...

4 Better Alternatives To A Final Fantasy 7 Remake

962d ago ... Final Fantasy VII was hands down one of the most memorable games ever made. Its graphics, for the time, were groundbreaking, the storyline was vast and deeply immersive and the One Winged Angel song was perhaps the best song ever written for a video game.It is no wonder that people want it remade, but perhaps Sony's decision to never do it is a good thing. After all, think of all the other poss...

Sequels Slump: What's Wrong with the Industry?

1436d ago ... Game sequels have been popping out faster than anyone can play them. It appears that for every original intellectual property we get, there are at least two sequels that we have to suffer through. Just look at games like Fable 3 or Fallout New Vegas. These are games that offer slightly more content with kinda improved graphics for the same game play you already had. Sure there are some new w...

3 methods of reviewing that need to die.

1492d ago ... 3.The IGN scoring Method. Example: Graphics 8. Sound 8. Presentation 7. Gameplay 6. Lasting Appeal 8. Final score:10 PERFECT GAME!. While that may be just a little exaggerated, IGN's scoring system is based on scoring the game's attributes then throwing in a number that has little to no relation to the aforementioned attributes. One game that has received the short end of the stick from this...

2010 games you shouldn't miss - playing the hardcore way: Battlefield: Bad Company 2

1688d ago ... Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Good campaign, really solid multiplayer! Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multi-player is really awesome, for me, considering the ones I've played (a lot) in the last year or so (Red Faction: Guerrilla, MW2, MAG) was the most enjoyable so far! The squad system is very well done and if you play with your friends the fun really goes high (a three or four friends squad is...

Cliffhanger - Longin' for a Laserdisc remake

2457d ago ... Everyone seems remembers Dragon's Lair. It's the game that put Laserdisc gaming on the map. A new generation has been introduced to the great animation of Laserdisc games through rerelease on PC and DVD of Dragon's Lair and it's less successful follow-up Space Ace. But I wonder how many remember probably one the best, though not as successful as Lair, laserdisc game Cliffhanger.

Lair 2: Part I -> Controls

2657d ago ... The following blog is written to inspire Factor 5 in their design of Lair 2. Lair all-in-all is a showcase, buts its also a base for future games using the 'Lair' engine. The intent is to provide Factor 5 with some design, gameplay, and production suggestions for the inevitable sequel to Lair. Factor 5 is a group of talented individuals who I think would not take offense to suggestions from gam...

L.A.I.R. Review-9/10

2674d ago ... Lair is without a doubt one of the most impressive looking games to date on any console. At 1080p the graphics are top notch and unmatched. Lair begins with a tutorial to get you up to speed on how to control the dragon using the six-axis controller.

LAIR is a much better game than what IGN said it was

Lair - Friend or Foe?

2685d ago ... Over the past few weeks there has been many reviews of the highly anticipated Playstation 3 game Lair. It started with Play Magazine which gave lair a score of 9/10, when that score came out, people were like "I don't trust them" or "PLAY is not a reliable source" blah blah. Then when EGM released there review they gave it a 5/10, 5.5/10, and a 6/10 and everyone was like &...
