No Hope Left?

9d 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

20d 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

36d 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.

52d 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

54d 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!

62d 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?

169d 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

200d 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.

218d 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.

222d 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

418d 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"?

421d 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)

445d 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

495d 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.

500d 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.

556d 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...

Remember that Miiverse debug menu?

571d ago ... Shortly after the Wii U's release in November of 2012, a NeoGAF user by the name of Trike found a way to access some sort of debug menu for the Wii U. Listed on the debug menu were a bunch of games titles: Super Mario Bros. WiiU metroid Zombie Yoshi's Island Wii U Flipnote Studio Donkey Kong Wii Fit Soul Hackers resident evils metal gear solid Final Fantasy 3 Dragon Quest 10 Fa...

What survival horror means to me

620d ago ... A lot of fans hate RE6. I'm not one of them. I've played, beaten and love the game for the original ideas that it puts forward. Now, as a fan myself I can see where the hate stems from: Capcom going back on their promise to go back to survival horror. I don't quite remember whether or not Capcom stated RE6 would "go back to the series' roots", but if they did, they weren't lying; they just fail...

Series Consistency and Fan Expectations

658d ago ... This blog was brought about thanks to Resident Evil 6. I’m not going to talk about how bad or good the game is, but I’m going to talk about series consistency, fan expectations, and reactions from fans of a series. I’m a casual Resident Evil fan and I do agree with many RE fans that RE6 does not feel like a REAL RE game. A lot of people say that RE4 was where things started to go downhill. I d...
