Sqaure-Enix has lost it: Final Fantasy VII

63d ago ... Ever since the PS3 tech demo, and even before that, fans of Final Fantasy VII have been salivating over the thought of a remake of the game that brought JRPGs to new heights. FF7 is regarded to many- myself included- as the best game that has ever been released, and although that may be subjective, it speaks volumes to how many fans hold this title so highly. Final Fantasy VII wasn't the onl...

Why Square Enix Has Just Made Me Worried For Final Fantasy XV

64d ago ... Yep, it's another blog. I'm on a roll. This one is about Square Enix and how they've just lost touch. Leave it to Square Enix to take the wind out of everyone's sails by vaguely commenting that Final Fantasy VII's Remake could very well be episodic and that each episode will play differently than the last. No one wants FFVII-1 FFVII-2 and so on and so on. When fans asked for a remake after t...

PS4 sales in Japan, determines the future of AAA JPRGs, Japanese AAA games

146d ago ... Bad news, for Japanese AAA games future . When PS2 almost 3 years old, it sold 12.5 million in Japan. When PS4 almost 2 years old, it sold less than 2 million in Japan. That's Bad. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/2664337.stm Will there be AAA Japenese games after FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE? Will FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE be AAA game? PS4 sales in Japan, determines the future of AAA JPR...

Metal Gear Solid V: Why I Do Not Regret Spending $130 on the Experience

153d ago ... So The Phantom Pain is out (have you heard?) and has done exceptionally well with most reviewing outlets. Not that I enjoy consulting Metacritic, but there is not one single mixed or negative review for the game. Needless to say, the game is incredible. It is no secret that I am a huge Metal Gear Solid fan with a pretty long rap sheet of things I have done. I managed to earn the Big Boss/Fox...

MGSV:TPP, PS3 Cell Secret Sauce, Console Sales.

161d ago ... With all the criticism, PS3 got great exclusive, only playable on PS3, but The Last Guardian isn't there anymore, yet a version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is there and according to Digital Foundry, the PS3 version is the worst version. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2015-metal-gear-solid-5-phantom-pain-face-off Given time and resources, PS3 ve...

So much, and so little...

224d ago ... I have begun to notice that I have a rapidly expanding problem, and I really don't know what to do about it. I have too many games. I collect games from various platforms, not just current generation and last generation titles. I have games from the Atari 2600, NES, SNES, Genesis, TurboGrafx 16, Neo Geo, Sega Master System, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, N64, Gamecube, PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4, Xbox,...

E3 Thoughts

239d ago ... So another E3 has come and gone, and naturally there's a lot to talk about. E3 has come a long way in the past few years. A few years ago we'd be arguing which company had the least cringe-worthy moments or technical hiccups. Now we actually argue on who had the better conference. Anyway, here's what I thought of each company's performance. ============================= Microsoft: Phil Sp...

Joe Montana Football looms

242d ago ... *UPDATE* Joe Montana Football will be shown part of the Unreal 4 presser. Also you can sign up for early access on www.Joemontana.com Let's get this out of the way now. I'm a fanboy. A NFL 2k5 fanboy. I still play it to this day with updated rosters found with simple google searches. You copy that save file and paste it to your 360, PS3, XboxOG, and PS2 to keep it going. Now, I'm n...

PS3 "A Better Value Than Wii U"?

246d ago ... Today I was shopping around at a local Walmart, when it dawned on me! The Wii U cost $300, while the PS3 was $150, then I started to really think about that...Then it hit me! The PS3 actually offers a better value then the "next gen" Nintendo Wii U. I must be crazy.. Right? When I went to the game aisle, I could not believe what I saw, a scarce Wii U game library with a lot of the same game...

Considering switching to XBX1

272d ago ... I am a loyal PS supporter. I have been gaming since 89. Not to go over my whole story, I will start from PS1 gen and later. From PS1 gen, I only had PS consoles AND a Dreamcast. Even last gen when media was trashing PS3; I wanted that console. I Didn't care about Nintendo or MS. However I have to say Sony first party is not to my liking anymore; for now at least. I was a huge fan of GOD OF W...

Exclusive games and how we should view them

318d 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...

Buying a Work in Progress

332d ago ... Once upon a time, when you bought a console or game, you knew what you had in your hands. You had a finished product. A definite and contained experience for all time to come….or until the cartridge disintegrated. Things have certainly changed since then. The PS3 I bought at launch is a far cry from the one I have on my table next to me. Even my games change over time, especially the online com...

Nintendoom: Part 1: Re-shaping the console

353d ago ... It's a new year, and time for a new blog, so let’s get right into it. Nintendoom. “Is this the end of Nintendo”, “Is this the end of Handhelds”, we've heard all this before, but looking at the state of the Wii U, and it's understandable why this topic comes up. The Wii U is currently performing worse than the GameCube which is considered a failure sales-wise amongst the gaming community, esp...

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

376d 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...

The Eighth Console Generation is Weird

379d ago ... So here we are, a little over a year into all of the eighth console generation platforms being available to the public. Though each of the platforms show promise and the games look to be getting better and better, there are some things about this console generation that seem, well, off. Here's a short list of why I think this generation is a bit wacky compared to last. 1. None of the console...

Why So Successful? - How Sony and the Playstation Platform Have Evolved

381d ago ... Last generation, I was able to purchase every major console and handheld, basically fulfilling a childhood dream – to own them all. It was an awesome dream to fulfill as a gamer. The sad part was that most of them became paperweights or dust collectors. As you get older, the time just isn’t there anymore….so enjoy and appreciate that free time while it lasts. I predominantly played Xbox and PS...

The Here and Playstation Now

384d ago ... If including everything available for both the Playstation 2 and 3 at launch, they’d be considered some of the consoles with the most robust libraries during their respective releases. This consideration isn’t due to an explosion of newly-released titles but rather in their focus on providing 100% backwards compatibility at the time. This was a consistent feature for Sony until PS2 compatibil...

Until Dawn | My Prayers Have Been Answered

403d 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.

404d 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?

405d 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...
