My Top 10 JRPGs

4d ago ... Probably my favorite gaming genre is JRPG, which probably has one of the hardest games, one of the most in-depth, best soundtracks and of course visually great (During their golden era atleast). Genre is very different from western type of RPG games such as Witcher, Fallout and Dungeon Siege Series. With the rise of Online gaming, we have morphed into MMORPG genre quite much, with this i thi...

3 Platform Future: Sony + Conlusion

8d ago ... Sony has made all the right moves with the PlayStation 4 thus far, and the PlayStation brand is the strongest of the big 3 when considering all time console sales. There’s little for me to comment on regarding Sony’s future in the gaming industry. Their $380 million dollar purchase of Gaikai, and upcoming features such as SharePlay on PS4 shows their future in the gaming industry is in the...

I am indeed a neutral party and this is a neut...

Lara Croft's Entry into the Console War

14d ago ... Since the beginning of time, there was always a central conflict in between both sides of the proverbial coin. With one grand spectrum at both ends of every cord, there was always one side versus another; man and woman, right and wrong, pro-life and pro-choice, Republican and Democrat, religion and atheist and the list goes on. However, those spectra are typically categorized into life itself,...

3 Platform Future: Xbox + PC + Steam = WIN

17d ago ... http://static.digit.in/fckeditor/uploads/xbox360-laptop(1).jpg Welcome to part two of the 3 platform future series. This is a 3 part blog, on what I personally hope will happen to the current game industry removing the need for to purchase 6 different platforms to have access to all games, and instead have a simple 3 platform medium. If you missed the first part, it covered Nintendo and mo...

PlayStation Plus: Where should it go next?

17d ago ... PlayStation Plus was first launched in 2010 primarily as a way for Sony to get revenue from their PlayStation Network. The service soon became a success as it offered free games, discounts and a variety of other deals as long as you kept the subscription. It was a surprisingly successful consequence of backing themselves into a corner (which was not charging for the use of the PlayStation Netwo...

For The Greater Good

25d ago ... I must start by saying this will be an unpopular position that, I expect, will get some backlash. With that in mind I believe the Vita needs to die to bring greater prosperity to Sony. Before you go down into the comment section to prove how wrong I am here me out. But before I explain my view point we must first look at where the Vita and handheld gaming is right now. The Vita has struggle...

EA Access: One step away from disaster

27d ago ... EA have unveiled their new subscription based service which takes a lot of cues from already established services like Games with Gold and Playstation Plus. What EA is offering is free EA games (that come and go from their “vault”), discounts and no doubt DLC exclusivity for their EA games. For £3.99 a month the price isn’t so bad and makes the service an attractive offer for those Xbox One own...

EA Access: A Perfect Move

27d ago ... This. Is. Brilliant. Completely and utterly B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T. So in a move similar to Games For Gold for Xbox systems or PS Plus for Playstation platforms, or more accurately Playstaion Now, Electronic Arts have announced EA Access: a service which will not only allow paid subscribers to play a number of older EA licensed games, but promises to give early access to upcoming triple-A product...

The EA Access and Sony debacle

27d ago ... Sony recently denied a new service by EA for the PS4 called EA Access. Microsoft announced that they would be partnering up with EA to bring this service to those who may want it on their Xbox One. In short, EA Access is supposed to bring discounts, online features, game demos and full games to its subscribers. Sony's action sparked an instant outcry amongst gamers. I've seen comments both for...

My Idea For A New Ape Escape

29d ago ... While my first gaming console was an NES, the console that really made me into a gamer was my Playstation. The original Playstation, to me, is the cornerstone of gaming and part of a turning point in the industry that has provided us with so many new experiences over the past decade or so. I really liked Nintendo games almost as much as I am liking them now, but at the end of the day in my hone...
