When Did Graphics Stop Mattering?

7d ago ... Quite some time ago, I began to notice gamers exclaiming how "graphics don't matter," and phrases like "it's the gameplay, not the graphics!" Well, I say, since when did gamers stop caring about how their games look, and why has it become almost politically incorrect as a gamer to demand both great gameplay and amazing-looking,eye-popping colors and textures whilst playing said awesome gameplay...

So I found something that bugs me about the Bay 2 reactions...

10d ago ... So I found out something a little bit ago that really put things into perspective for me, regarding Bayonetta 2, and I just want to talk about that a little....[keep in mind, I'm an owner of the first game, on PS3] A long while back, a little gem called Mad World made its way to the Wii. This game, despite being on a system that was infested mostly with casuals who didn't pay attention to c...

Titan One Review- "Mods without Soldering"

35d ago ... The Titan One is available online for approximately $60 USD. A device was provided for review purposes. More information can be found at www.consoletuner.com.

The Titan One really shows its colors by working as intended as...

My top 10 Games in a franchise last gen.

61d ago ... Choosing a top 10 on such a topic was really hard because some of those franchises had a sequel or a prequel that is just as good . So let begin with ... 10-Mass Effect (Ps3,360,Pc) While alot of people will say Mass effect 2 was the best in the series , for me this was the best , the level mechanics , getting exp from enemies rather than finishing a part then get a bunch of exp , it just w...

No, September's PS+ Lineup Does Not Suck

63d ago ... I've been seeing quite a few articles lately regarding September's PS+ lineup, and September's Games With Gold lineup. Many say GWG is better, some others beg to differ. Here's my whole take and opinion on this month's free games, and why everyone's complaining. (My post here is a bit long, I know, but bear with me). In case you haven't been catching up with the news lately, the free games t...

My top 10 hidden gems last gen

66d ago ... The Last gen had alot of amazing games but unfortunately alot of these games went under the rubble or played by a small amount of gamers which is a shame because alot of those games were actually better than alot of AAA games . 10-Deadly Premonition (Ps3,360,pc) This game was really bad in almost everything , you will hate everything about it and regret ever buying it , until you get deep e...

No Hope Left?

68d ago ... You probably can't tell from my name but I am or at the very least was a hardcore Resident Evil fanboy, I was so into the series that I would consider it the contender with others being pretenders. I loved the series, I knew the whole story, I would dump out info in my head like, addresses, names, numbers, and basic motor skills just so my head could be a an archive of RE lore. I owned all t...

A possible effect Microsoft needs to be mindful of

72d ago ... Like a man beating a dead horse I am going to write about the Tomb Raider deal. I am not a huge believer in writing about something that nearly every publication or users has already written about. But I feel one aspect of the deal is being overlooked; the one company that has the most to lose out in the deal is not Square Enix but Microsoft. Microsoft is no stranger to buying timed/exclusiv...

LittleBigPlanet: Stunted by a poor financial model

72d ago ... LittleBigPlanet has been somewhat of a successful series for Sony and they have just unveiled their newest title in the series, LittleBigPlanet 3, for the PS3 and PS4. From October 2008 to January 2013 8 million user generated levels were created and published [1]. I am proudly a creator of two of those 8 million levels even though those levels were nothing compared to some of the amazing creat...

My Idea For A New Ape Escape

94d 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...

The Virtues Of Assassin's Creed 3

116d ago ... There are times in my life where I have kind of a "gaming rut;" an extended period of time where there is either nothing new or current that interests me, or I simply do not have the finances to purchase what does. In these moments I take to going back and playing older games. Sometimes I age myself and go way back to play NES to PS1 games; still other times I don't go so far and I will play PS...

One plus 3 equals 4

119d ago ... The XboX One isn't exactly burning up the charts like the 360 did last gen and the PS4 is looking very tough to beat in terms of sales. With superior graphics, more overall bang for your buck, and an earlier release date the PS4 has put The XboX one behind in numbers with the appearance of little chance of the XboX One catching up. The one advantage that the XboX can have over the PS4 is...

Why Hironobu Sakaguchi making JRPG for Mobile, not home console.

121d ago ... Hironobu Sakaguchi, Why Mobile ? HS: [in English] Ah, Kutaragi-san's architecture...seven DSPs and a low-powered CPU. I don't like the PS3's architecture. [in Japanese] First off, with Sony, programmers want to do well and want to create good software, but Kutaragi-san makes the final call and [designs] the [hardware and software] environment himself. So that's been really challenging....
