My New Year's Gaming Resolutions

8d ago ... Another year has gone by which means that it’s time for some non-sober reflection on the past year(s). This reflection usually births some sort of determination to change things and to do better in the coming year. So this year, from a gaming standpoint, I want to share some of these resolutions. Can people really change? Probably not, but it’s good to dream. Fear of Commitment I still ha...

The State of Video Games So Far

43d ago ... Back in 2013 the gaming community was introduced to the next generation of video game consoles, they were shown to be faster, smoother and more powerful then the previous generation, as expected, but never the less the community couldn't contain their excitement for the following year as we would be in the first year of the next generation of consoles, and also we would be introduced to the fir...

Was Destiny Destined to Be a Disappointment?

94d ago ... It is an understatement to say that Destiny's reception by gamers and some parts of the gaming journalism scene has been lukewarm at best with debate after debate about why another one of the biggest releases of the year turned out to be such a financial success but only a moderate critical success. Destiny is the first multiplatform game from former Halo game studio Bungie and was hyped up to...

When does Next Gen truly start?

99d ago ... When we buy a next gen system, we expect at least a game or two to stand out and scream next gen. To make us stand up and say, "wow, I cant believe this is a game!" or "This couldnt have been done last gen". Not just visually, but with gameplay also. I can remember, the entire way back to the Atari 2600, each system launch having at least one or two of those games that made you gasp in amazemen...

Game Remakes, A Double Take...

101d ago ... Every day there is a new article posted on remakes and ports, going back-and-forth as to why they love and hate the practice. Stating that Metro was a proper remake while Last Of Us, GTA and Tomb Raider are all just cash grabs. Slightly updated visually and repackaged. Tomb Raider was one of the best looking and playing games on next gen systems this year, above those others that were design...

No Hope Left?

123d ago ... You probably can't tell from my name but I am or at the very least was a hardcore Resident Evil fanboy, I was so into the series that I would consider it the contender with others being pretenders. I loved the series, I knew the whole story, I would dump out info in my head like, addresses, names, numbers, and basic motor skills just so my head could be a an archive of RE lore. I owned all t...

COD AW looks great but is just another lag fest.

132d ago ... With Activision finally making the jump to next gen I have been waiting for those magical words everyone wants to hear - dedicated servers. But, looks like COD is in the P2P hosting business for the duration. That means all your superb games and high K/D ratio mean exactly nothing. Not saying you don't have skill, but you don't know if the guy on the other end is shooting first and dying f...

Red Barrels: An Interview with David Chateauneuf and Philippe Morin

167d 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

199d 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.

206d 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

211d 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

222d 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

269d 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

283d 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

286d 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.

287d 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....
