Red Barrels: An Interview with David Chateauneuf and Philippe Morin

13d ago ... It has been a long time since we have seen an interesting survival horror game - until OUTLAST was released by Red Barrels. With OUTLAST they set an example for the current, and next generation of horror games. FogKnight talks with the co-founders for Red Barrels, David Chateauneuf and Philippe Morin about the foundation of Red Barrels, the making of OUTLAST and OUTLAST: Whistleblower, and t...

E3 Is Almost Here

45d ago ... E3 is right around the corner and here I am stuck once again in my cycle of life. Earn money, take care of kid, and hang out with the family. But I almost forget. I have to spend some time with the Playstation 4, but that will be difficult considering there are no compelling games to play. Oh well back to collecting dust I suppose. In all seriousness my Playstation 3 and Wii U have been gett...

Innovation: Not what the market really wants.

52d ago ... Recently, The Order: 1886 got was shown in the form of a full gameplay video. Visually, the game is stunning. Sure, it isn't very colourful, but it really is on the level of CGI quality. However, no game is safe from negative 'opinions' and this was no exception. 2 minutes of gameplay brought out the hypocrisy of the gaming community. Not as much on this site as sites such as Neogaf and espe...

Gaming's Blockbuster Obsession

57d ago ... At some point during the month of July 2013, almost one year ago, Tony Key, Ubisoft’s VP of sales and marketing made a bold statement concerning game development. "We won't even start if we don't think we can build a franchise out of it," Key told A-List Daily. "There's no more fire and forget - it's too expensive." It was confirmation of a philosophy that many had observed to have taken hold a...

The Uneventful History of Console Launch Years and Why This Generation’s Is Not as Bad as You Think

68d ago ... It has been a half a year since the launch of the current generation (or are we still calling it next gen? ) of gaming consoles by Microsoft and Sony and gamers in general don’t seem too pleased by what we’ve been given so far by the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. While there have been a handful of interesting titles that have given us just a slight (and I do mean slight) taste of what makes...

Watchdogs... A Community Divided

115d ago ... From the second that Ubisoft released a subpar trailer of Watchdogs, the forums all over the internet have lit up with negative reactions, saying visuals have been severely downgraded over E3 2012s high end PC demo. No matter how much Ubisoft has tried to squash the rumors and remind gamers that the E3 2012 demo was never representative of next gen console visuals(only a target for high end PCs...

Wii U can succeed without muti-platform 3rd party support

128d ago ... Truth be told, Wii U doesn't need mainstream 3rd party games like Grand Theft Auto or the latest Need for Speed to be successful. The Wii U is getting its own exclusives, however they also need exclusive 3rd Party Franchises in which fans can become familiar with. Nintendo has the resources to establish 5 franchises if they were to choose to in my opinion. If I had control over Nintendo right n...

My Take on Gaming: 8th Gen

132d ago ... 8th Generation gaming is among us following the launches of Sony's PS4, Microsoft's Xbox One and Nintendo's Wii U. Nintendo's Wii U was launched last November and gave us a glimpse to what 8th Generation or more commonly known as Next Gen gaming had in store. Many in the gaming community do not consider the Wii U a true Next Gen console due to its weaker hardware specs when compared to the PS4...

WiiU to be dead by 2016 and here's why.

133d ago ... So if you are a nintendo fan or a gamer you'll know Nintendo's WiiU has not been a big success, under performing in projected sales and game DLC being cancelled for the platform. Now while yes it has recently had some good games released (and by some I mean like 2 games) that sadly is not really enough and the sad truth is the way things are going Nintendo might kill of the WiiU before 2016....

Remastered Titles and The Gamers They Anger

159d ago ... With the announcement of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Rayman: Legends for next gen systems, gamers everywhere chose sides and voiced their opinions. Either glad titles like this, that they missed last gen, were being remastered and rereleased... or angry that developers weren't spending their time on new next gen games. At the beginning of every consoles life, comes a dry period. Wher...

Next Gen Ports: Why I'd Happily Buy Them

163d 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...

Ground Zeroes: Worth it?

168d ago ... There's been a crap-ton of people that all of the sudden want nothing to do with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. I'm here simply to clear the air. The game isn't 2 hours; only the main mission is 2 hours. There are side missions that probably bring that total to 3 maybe 4 hours. Also, Metal Gear games tend to have VERY high replayability. So you're probably going to get like 10 hours out...

Taking a macroscopic look at micro-transactions

177d ago ... I initially had this topic more geared towards being just a light-hearted rant in the vein of a Christmas-themed carol or children’s story for the December contests, but perhaps it’s for the better that I dive into this on a more serious note the first time I’m presenting it. Even though I’ve seen this new nickel-and-dime scheme in recent console titles, I wasn’t really hot and bothered by it...

Next gen Superman game! Who wants one?

187d ago ... I have looked around the internet searching for what people actually want in a good Superman game. Here's my take on the new Superman game for the next gen consoles. A lot of people are waiting for Superman to appear in a good game but everyone is also complaining about the fact that Superman is doomed to fail because of his backstory and properties. Luckily there are some fans (including my...

Xbox One & PS4 Summary - Key Features and Differences

223d ago ... The ‘next generation’ of video game consoles has come to life with the recent releases of Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 (PS4). These consoles offer levels of processing power, graphical capability and unique features never before seen in home video game consoles. One of the key new features of the Xbox One is the inclusion of a ‘Kinect’ sensor with every console. This device...

The 3rd Times A Charm, The PS4 Is In A One Horse Race

228d ago ... The way it looks now the PS4 is about to handily outsell the Xbox One. This will be the 3rd time in a row a Playstation platform has outsold a Microsoft platform. This generation looks to be more of a PS2 type victory than a PS3 type victory. 1. PRICE It's the most obvious so I'll start here. The PS4 regardless of everything else it's better at, is cheaper. This is the first thing uneduca...

My top 15 games of the generation. (15-10)

231d ago ... With Nintendo, Sony, and Mircrosoft all having their next generation consoles out in the wild I think its the right time to start thinking about the games that defined this past generation. Before I begin my list I would like to inform you that there are a lot of games that I missed out on that might not be here. There were also quite a few games I played that were very disappointing that ar...

Game Ideas: Metroid Other M 2

255d ago ... Okay, so remember when I said that I thought that Nintendo’s saving grace for the Wii U (for lack of a better term) was a return to turning heads with odd choices that would turn into great decisions? Remember the “decision” that I thought it might be? A direct sequel to Metroid: Other M, MOM 2 could be that game because it would, one, turn the heads of people wondering what in the crap Nintend...
