Paying For Mods: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

1d 8h ago ... The latest controversy in the gaming world is that Valve has started a program whereby mod creators can charge gamers for the mods they create and distribute via Steam. (Question: Would this apply to mods distributed through other services such as Nexus?) Here's the full details that Valve has provided about the program. http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/aboutpaidcontent (The site loaded...

Mortal Kombat X PC Port - Badly Optimized

4d ago ... Now as I got my hand on the most waited game, but believe me, the same way it given me excitement has also pissed away my mood. No doubt it is one my favorite games of all time with all the new character like Erron Black, new ailities, arenas and game play has driven me crazy. I just can’t put my controller down as there is always a new experience. But one thing that has sort of taken 30% of my...

Games that Deserve Their Own Movies

13d ago ... Movies based on video games have a poor track record these days. The movie industry doesn’t always care to produce quality movies based around some of our favorite games. Though, we gamers always seem to want to see our favorite video games turned into a movie. But why make them if Hollywood always ruins them? Of course, there is always a possibility could turn out very bad, but I’ll take those...

Exclusive games and how we should view them

27d ago ... The term exclusive has changed somewhat in the industry. It used to mean if you could only get that game on one particular platform it meant exclusive. While this is true the lines have been blurred over the years for various reasons. I recall Aaron Greenberg from Microsoft used to use the term exclusive even if the game was coming to the PC. In fact titles like Bioshock had 'only on Xbox and W...

Game length vs Value.

40d ago ... The definition of gaming varies from someone to the other, some people consider gaming a free time killer, some consider it a hobby and some consider it a necessity of life. And each type of those people looks for something different in a game, some just want something fun, easy, and makes them feel relaxed, others look for a challenge or a hardcore experience that makes them feel good about t...

Nintendoom: Part 3: Specs., Price, and Performance

62d ago ... First and foremost the console has to be more powerful, but most importantly, easy to develop for (something all developers benefit from). The PlayStation 4 is the perfect example of giving developers, the gamer, and the community what they want, and reaping the rewards for it. At $199 - $249 the console can’t be a powerhouse if it launches between 2017 - 2018, but at worst it should be on pa...

The Order: 1886 and The "Justifications" for The Negativity Towards it.

66d ago ... So most of you are probably tired of all the negative articles and opinions surrounding Ready at Dawn's upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886. Most of the negativity seems to be "Justified" by the people making these opinions; Story too short, linear, too many QTE segments, too many cutscenes, etc. Now i have yet to actually play The Order so this is not an opinion on the game or is...

Sony need to pull their fingers out and provide a native Media Server ASAP

85d ago ... I was a technological neophyte having just built my first computer so I could play Starcraft 2 at above 5 frames a second. I'd not long since moved into my friends house, who it so happened was an avid Playstation gamer(Dare I say Fan-boy?! But that's a discussion for another time and braver souls than I!). He had let me create an account on his Playstation 3,to play Demon's Souls and suchlike...

Too Many Side Quests?

106d ago ... Shigeru Miyamoto recently released some new information about the upcoming Zelda game that some people might find exciting, or may deter some people from playing it. He said, “There may even be times where you forget what your goal is because you’re doing other things on the side.” This is nothing new in the history of Zelda games, which always feature fun and entertaining side quests that earn...

Until Dawn | My Prayers Have Been Answered

112d ago ... Growing up, I always had an insatiable fascination with experiencing a horror movie in an interactive fashion. Whether that be being cast as an actor in a horror film or experiencing a true horror story in video game form. I don't mean supernatural or undead like The Evil Within or The Walking Dead; I mean a gritty, serial killer-esque thematic on par with the Halloween franchise. As a younger...

My top 11 PS2 games.

113d ago ... Playstation 2 is one of those consoles that was just a juggernaut of its own even though the Gamecube and the original Xbox had slightly better graphics however nothing rivaled it in terms of sheer amount of games and variety it had and it came with a built in DVD player so that was cool for the time. With the great amount of time I had with it I wanted to show my top 11 for my favorite console...

What is up with number 3?

114d ago ... Sequels are really hard to make because the developers works harder to make a better game while retaining the charm of the first game but sometimes when a sequel becomes really good and way better than the first. Developers think about making a third one which either fails to impress because of the high bar the second game sets or never gets released and on rare occasions it becomes the best...

Lets sniff some glue 1: Square Enix edition

120d ago ... Square Enix CEO gets on the platform at the Playstation event after making a long trip from Japan just to announce 1 game. Shows FF7 logo. Everyone's excited... Reveals the 9000th port of FF7, but wait this time its a PC port. So "Preez be excited" (at that moment he knows he just trolled everyone like a boss). All this just shows Square Enix is out of touch with gamers and its own fans. Nex...

Gaming Under Relative Adversity

122d ago ... The holidays are a time to spend with you loved ones, the ones nearest and dearest to your heart – PS4, XB1, 3DS, PC etc – whatever your poison. Every year, I have grand designs to use my little free time to put in some serious gaming, particularly of the RPG variety. However, year after year, I have my quality time invaded upon by; you guessed it – my relatives. No, I don’t care about what yo...

Would you play Browser Games?

137d ago ... In recent years, with the development of web technology, type of game has been varied again. There are quite a lot of browser games online, such as Shifu, Nightfalls, Dragon Atlas and Dawn of King. Instead of having to download the application or client of game, we merely need to open a web browser and install a plug-in maybe and then we can start playing straight away. Indeed, compared to m...

Do You Even Third-Party Exclusive, Bro?

137d ago ... So with some of the recent rumblings about third party exclusivity and such, I thought it would be a good idea to raise the general morale (and maybe upset the fanboys in the process...not that I'm doing that intentionally). Right, so, with the recent announcement of Street Fighter V as a PlayStation 4 console exclusive, gamers are more or less losing their minds in both good ways and bad. O...

Console exclusivity and gamer hypocrisy

141d ago ... The big news to hit the Internet recently, is that Capcom's newly announced Street Fighter V will be exclusive to the PS4 and Windows PC. The mere mention of yet another high profile 3rd party IP getting the console exclusivity treatment has caused outrage amongst gamers. More specifically the Xbox crowd, who are outraged that a game from such a popular, previously multiplat franchise will b...

Ubisoft And Embargoes

146d ago ... Had a different, and totally reactionary blog I was going to post but changed my mind and couldn't delete it, so I'm changing it. I'm sure you've all heard of what Ubisoft is doing with The Crew and not allowing any reviews until launch. It follows what they've been doing with their games for awhile now and is completely wrong. I'm a fan of the Assassin's Creed series, always have been an...

Digital future will be bad for console gamers

170d ago ... Australian PSN and Xbox Live users get the jitters when some point to the inevitability of digital downloads. Let's take the PSN store for example, for a quick comparison of some new and upcoming releases: PSN: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - $99.95 Lords of the Fallen - $89.95 PES 2015 - $84.95 GTAV - $99.95 Now here's the comparable prices for disc editions from major retailers: C...
