The 7th Generation: A Post-mortem (Part 2)

11d ago ... For me, the 6th generation was characterized by a massive variation and innovation of software in a short time, while the 7th generation is the complete opposite. The 7th gen defined regression in almost every genre, and did so over the course of 8 years. Some were hit harder than others, but I can’t think of many genres that truly improved over this time. Let us all take a moment to remember t...

Illbleed: A Forgotten Classic with a Forgotten Spirit for Game Development

47d ago ... Recently I've been revisiting the classics of the survival horror genre, which is only now returning to its roots after over a decade of misrepresentation. Having played all the Silent Hill's and Resident Evil's countless times, I sought out some of the obscurities of the genre, and that leads us to Illbleed, an anomaly within an anomalous genre. There really is nothing like this game, it both...

Can Horror co-operate?

230d ago ... Recently details have surfaced over the latest entry in the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil Revelations 2, a lot of the details where very promising minus 1 thing that stood out the most. The fact that it has co-op, now as soon as a lot of people read that their hope for a good old school RE game was dashed and replaced with a strong dislike that it is now co-op and feel it is now ruined....

No Hope Left?

245d 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...

The best demo I have ever played

255d ago ... "Originally we were thinking of making a game that would make you pee your pants, but at this point we've changed our minds, and now we're aiming for a game that will make you shit your pants". -Kojima Horror seemed to have been a forgotten genre. Resident Evil veered off the left, Dead Space started in the right direction but ultimately caved in to a more action game, Alan Wake was disappo...

My Idea For A New Ape Escape

271d 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...

Turtle Beach's Beautiful Game Search is Turning Out to Be a Joke.

287d ago ... Turtle Beach recently started a "campaign" to crown the best game of all time. They've narrowed it down to the top 15 games that people have been pushing for. Here is that list: Borderlands 2 Call of Duty: Ghosts Dwarf Fortress Far Cry 3 FIFA 14 Final Fantasy X Grand Theft Auto V Halo 3 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Pac Man Resident Evil Super Mario Galaxy The Elder Scrolls V:...

Whistles of the Outlasting Insanity

289d ago ... [b]By FogKnight[/b]  The horror genre. It’s been one of the most appreciated yet risky types of games to make and sell for the longest time. One of the most vocal reasons is that not many people will actually buy horror games since they don’t like being terrified, which leads to some publishers making their developers create a horror game that i[i]sn’t actually that scary[/i] - like FEAR 3,...

Gaming Nightmares!

298d ago ... Gaming can be good. It can be a means to escape this cruel, cruel world and enter a fantasy realm that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. But gaming can also be just as cruel that will make you cry under your blankets at night...ok, maybe not cry, but definitely play with your emotions. This isn't just nightmares persay, but all things that make you feel scared, frustrated, uneasy or wha...

Should Resident Evil Go on Hiatus?

405d ago ... Resident Evil, the name speaks for itself and it's own place in the genre of horror video games. It was what spooked us and kept us up at night. It's creatures terrified us. It's atmosphere was claustrophobic and tense. So how fairs Resident Evil these days? Not well. I was originally contemplating on if I should cover Resident Evil in Beginning, Impact, and Future; however, I know exactly wher...

Left Behind: Ellie And Riley

435d ago ... WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD ... ... You have been warned: It took me about 3 1/2 hours to complete on hard and I enjoyed 99.9% of it with major reservations for that .1%. I'll get to that but first 'the beginning'. It was fitting that they started with a montage of scenes from the full game, it immediately reminded us of who Ellie had become. When the Ellie and Joel cut-scene finished and you...

Nintendo hate is out of hand.

454d ago ... Over the past few years it seems Nintendo is getting a lot of hate and criticism. From claims that Nintendo "releases the same Ip" to "Nintendo games are for kids". Lets cut to the chase, Nintendo releases one major Zelda/Mario/fire emblem/ every other game pretty much once or twice per console. What I want to know is why is it not okay for the big N to do this but is perfectly fine to have a l...

What I would do as CEO of Nintendo.

457d ago ... Note: This isnt all i would do, these are just 13 descision within the realm of possibility that could help Nintendo in its struggle with the Wii U. What i do if i was CEO of Nintendo. 1. Put Xenoblade Chronicles on the eshop for $29.99, this would build hype for X as well as attract all the people not willing to pay 70 bucks for it at GameStop. 2. Fund a Resident Evil 2 remake a la the...

The cost of AAA game production is putting a chokehold on creativity in the mainstream

653d ago ... The needless expense of AAA video game production is killing creativity and originality in mainstream console gaming It has been said by countless game reviewers and bloggers before me, but I feel I must say it yet again. The practice of throwing insane amounts of cash at AAA projects causes a need to adhere to generic tried and true formulas, as well as attempting to appeal to as wide an au...

What is a "Nintendo fan"?

656d ago ... I'm not the one to indulge myself in the matters of fanboyism or console favoritism, but a comment on a particular news article yesterday challenged my identity and made me reconsider what I stand for. What that comment was, you may ask? "ZombiU was never going to be successful being exclusive to Wii U because many Nintendo fans aren't into those kind of games" This blog is not only a res...

Resident Evil 4 sucks (in a way that is)

680d ago ... Before I share my thoughts on this topic, let me just say: Hello there, inter webs! This is my first post on this site and frankly, my very first blogpost ever. With that out of the way, let's discuss Resident Evil 4. While I agree with most that Resident Evil 4 is a great game, I think it sucks as both a survival horror game and a Resident Evil sequel. How is that possible, you ask? Well i...

The Drawing Board: Halo

730d ago ... I don't usually do stuff like this, but I think I need an outlet so let's give it a shot. These days, I cant help but notice that there are some big names in the video game industry that are too afraid to stray away from previous entries. Long lasting franchises like Pokemon,Starcraft, Resident Evil, The Legend of Zelda, and many others seem uninterested in adding new elements or perspective...

Survival Horror is making a come back.

735d ago ... It appears that Shinji Mikami, best known as the creative mind behind the Resident Evil franchise (par the bad ones) intends to use the T-virus in order to reanimate the practically dead Survival Horror franchise, so to finish this awkwardly phrased simile, will we get a brain dead Zombie or an unstoppable Tyrant? my bet is on a Tyrant right now, but as it stands it's anybody's guess. Now to...

The State of the 3DS, 2 years later‏.

791d ago ... The 3DS is approaching its 2 year anniversary on March 27. In anticipation, I felt that I should speak on the state of the hand held 2 years later. When the 3DS first started it showed promise of a hand held that can truly show off great games. After the launch time period 3DS had a huge hurdle, the high price and lack of compelling games created a perception that showed Nintendo was going...
