Remastered Titles and The Gamers They Anger

535d 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

539d 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?

544d 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

553d 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?

563d 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

598d 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

603d 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)

607d 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

631d 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...

How To Survive/Shorten the Next-Gen Waiting Line

636d ago ... So, you've decided not to pre-order your next generation console online. You are going to wait in line at launch with all the crazy people, and endure the bad weather. Waiting lines can be some of the most dangerous, and most boring, places in the galaxy. You have to keep your wits about you at all times or you could be murdered by a crazy person who is crazy for murdering. So, as a person w...

Rant: Where is the Gaming Industry Headed?

637d ago ... Am I the only one seeing this gloom and doom trip that everyone's going on heading into the next generation? Because it's been beyond noticeable to me. Whether it's people saying that consoles are going to be taken over by smartphones, or that gaming development costs are skyrocketing continuously, a lot of people are saying that consoles are going to die out, that digital distribution is go...

The TRUE Resolution of Call of Duty Ghosts on Xbox One

647d ago ... This is just for the sake of discussion and my opinion means nothing in the grand scheme of things as it is purely spculation and I am not treating it as fact. I am getting both machines and I am trying to keep this as balanced as possible. So as many of you know Microsoft and Activision have not confirmed the resolution of the game for the xbox one (unless we use the eurogamer article from...

My Eurogamer Expo 2013 Experience

672d ago ... I've never been to London, I've never been to an expo before and next gen is right around the corner... so i thought, what better time to kill 2 birds with 1 stone? I took a flight from sunny old Glasgow down to London, spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday there, played a whole bunch of games, took myself to the brink of bankruptcy on merchandise and had a great time doing so. This is my...

Console Contradiction

673d ago ... This is my first blog post, actually its my first post period. So please bare with me. I'm about to talk about the 2 next gen consoles. With Gamescom, TGS, and E3 all finished, I think its fine to compare the consoles now. Of course with new information coming out each day, we can never know what to expect. The PS4 could suck with one post, vice versa with Xbox One. So here's my story. My...

A New Generation Is Good For All, Stop Arguing.

681d ago ... So, the only thing that I see in the comment sections of this site are people creating dumb arguments to justify why the next gen platform of their preference is better than the others. Who cares, if one console is stronger than the other? The only thing that matters to us, the consumer, are the games. If you guys were developers trying to decide what platform you wanted to develop your games f...

PC and Nintendo platforms suck. Are the next gen consoles weak?

683d ago ... Ha, got you with that title didn't I? No, I don't think PC gaming sucks. For a while, before I got my PS3 in 2011, I did play on Steam a lot. But now... you'll find out. I also love Nintendo. I really do. I just thought it'd be fun to test a trap title. :p The real topic of this blog is the idea that the next gen consoles are too weak to be called 'next gen'. I've seen PC fanatics all ove...
