136d ago ... There won't be any AAA Japanese PS4 Exclusive games, this generation. That's Bad, and I hope I'm totally wrong about this.

Booooo

221d ago ... [b]From Valenka[/b] Step into the shoes – or rather, the ectoplasm – of a peaceful ghost residing inside a haunted mansion, thriving in the cold and dark environments and enjoying the solitude.

In-Depth E3 Predictions

242d ago ... E3 is just a few days away and so I will now make my predictions for the Big 3. (bear in mind that, while this is well-researched, it still includes my opinion which, like yours and mine and everyone else’s, doesn’t really matter) Nintendo: I thought Nintendo actually had the best conference last year and that's ironic considering they didn't even make an actual, physical appearance at t...

As the Sun Sets in the East

267d ago ... One on the greatest disappointments of the 7th generation of consoles was, for me, the decline in Japanese AAA development.

Ye Olde Import Game

345d ago ... In today’s interconnected world, gaming has never been so transparent, especially when it comes to imports. If you want a game from Japan just hop on Amazon and go get it. If there is a certain title you want localized, well then just petition your heart away until you get your wish. It wasn’t always this easy though. Not so long ago importing a game was a dicey affair and more often than not i...

Nintendoom: Part 2: Buyout / Merger

351d ago ... The other option, as I said previously, is to accept a buyout offer in their favor. A buyout rarely goes in the favor of the company being bought, but Nintendo isn’t a company filing for bankruptcy. It’s a company with decades of history, and a stable of franchises, games, and iconic characters that can enhance any entertainment investors overall image. Apple would likely be a big name tha...
