As the Sun Sets in the East

5d ago ... One on the greatest disappointments of the 7th generation of consoles was, for me, the decline in Japanese AAA development. When Nintendo revived the home console market all those years ago, they were not the only ones to benefit. For years after that, even when Sony entered the fray, the Japanese game developers were the foundation of console game experience. As a consequence of that, we in th...

Reaction: Konami Heads to Mobile Gaming. Really?!

8d ago ... That's the reality of it everyone. Konami is officially going toward mobile gaming. No more will they release games on console, PC, or handheld devices. Gamers can expect that Konami's new vision for the future is unquestionably reliant on the mobile gaming market. That being said I just have one question for my fellow gamers: Does anyone else here think that they are utterly insane? Konami....

Dear EA, WTF? Where is Battlefield Bad Company 2 ReMastered

12d ago ... Seriously with all these re-masters popping up, you mean to tell me EA could not get a team together to Remake Battlefield Bad Company 2.. Really? One of the best selling FPS games. I mean come on’ it’s only one of the most beloved games by all gamers young and old and in the franchise history. Hell PC gamers have totally abandoned Battlefield Hardline, just because they wanted a more seriou...

Why Konami needs to leave.

24d ago ... As of right now Konami's upcoming Silent Hill game being made with the combined efforts of Hideo Kojima & Guilermo Del Toro is cancelled, this news shows a very clear sign that Konami no longer has any business in the games industry and needs to pack up it's things and leave. This isn't a rant made by an upset fanboy raging at the company for cancelling a game he wasn't looking forward to, t...

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

28d 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

32d 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

40d 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

54d 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.

68d 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

89d 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.

93d 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

112d 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?

133d 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

139d 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.

140d 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?

141d 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

147d 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

150d 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?

165d 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?

165d 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...
