International Exclusionary Sports Federation: The Hearthstone Incident

23d ago ... Hell has officially frozen over. I am going to write a blog post that could be seen as defending a position akin to the feminist one, though only just barely. So for those of you that don't know, there is an organization known as the International e-Sports Federation dedicated to video game tournaments designed to promote competitive gaming as a legitimate sport. For 6 years now it has held...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes & "The Fighting Game Dilemma"

77d ago ... By now, many of us who frequent gaming news sites are aware of the wildly varied reviews of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. According to MetaCritic, scores are as low as 50%, yet as high as 100%. Though 50% is as low as MC has recorded, I have observed scores as low as 1/5 (20%) from less-known [and perhaps less reputable] sources that *could* simply be looking for hits. In my opinion, the g...

Shaq Fooled

137d ago ... Hey! Did you hear? They are making a sequel to Shaq Fu! The tournament fighter centered on the Big Aristotle, often seen as one of the worst games of all time is back for round two! I’ll admit when I heard this news it did put a smile on my face. I’m a huge basketball fan, so I always welcome offbeat titles loosely centered on the sport. Games like Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City, Barkl...

Random Gaming Memories of Mine

171d ago ... Today I was looking at my collection of games and out the corner of my eye I saw the first game I've ever owned. It's Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Genesis! Now pay close attention to what I said there, first game I've ever owned, not played. The first game I've ever played was Super Mario Bros. So yes Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was the first game I've ever owned and I was blown away by it. It wa...

Fading Nintendo

232d ago ... Nintendo are great game developers and publishers, but bad console platform holders, their games and legacy prop them up. the younger generation don't remember but they used to have a PS1/PS2 like market domination with the original Nintendo system and Later Super Nintendo, that generation I was a big SEGA fanboy but I always looked at my younger brother with envy as he plays his SNES, later...

When darkness took hold on gaming.

336d ago ... It was nearing the end of the 16-bit era with the Saturn and Playstation shedding dark clouds over it. There was no stopping it. Games were going 3-D but it felt like they weren't quite ready to be there. Virtua Fighter and Daytona USA were positives in what seemed like the next step and while I liked the way the games moved and animated I did not like the way they looked. The Street Fighte...

The State of the 3DS, 2 years later‏.

516d 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...

Dragon’s Dogma Demo Impressions

817d ago ... Dragon’s Dogma is an epic new game from Capcom that is set to release May 22, 2012. The demo was recently released on PSN and XBOX live this week and I have gotten the chance to try the demo for myself. I consider myself a hardcore RPG fan and enjoy the genre more then any other. When the game was first announced, I saw “RPG” and “Capcom” and immediately thought that, while Capcom specializes i...

I regret buying a 3DS…

1024d ago ... So i bought my 3DS only days after it’s release hoping to jump into the amazing world of Mario and his family in 3D, but soon enough i had my dreams crushed, i bought the device along with Street Fighter 4 and although i’m not a big fan of fighting games and as i never played any previous parts of the series before i had to go with it because it was the only decent launch title and it was very...

DBZ kinect game idea

1053d ago ... This is just something my friends and I were talking about that would be a good idea for a kinect game. I’m not sure if those who are reading this know but kinect is like a perfect fit in for fighting games like street fighter or soul caliber. When I’m online I usually talk and brainstorm ideas for games that would work for kinect and one game me and my friends came up with is a DBZ game....

Expansions: When is it an actual expansion, and when is it just hyped DLC?

1100d ago ... With the news of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 being announced, and it being consider a "re-release" of MvC3 (or basically a release of the FINISHED MvC3), a lot of news about how Capcom and other devs like to leave out content for future release has been popping up. Many gamers are continuing to show disdain and anger, and rightly so, to companies like Capcom for pulling stunts like this, and...

Why I think 3DS should be Nintendo's next console

1214d ago ... I picked up my 3DS last Friday and love it to bits. It lives up to the promises Nintendo made of it. It has a lot of good games to look forward to. And it meets all my media related needs as well. Some of you may look at the title and think "what is this guy on about? Nintendo need a new console!" But give me a chance to explain here and you might understand where I am coming from. To start...

Nintendo = Best exclusives ever!

1221d ago ... The king of consoles returns. The world is about to get a taste of Nintendo's latest offering and gamers the world over are waiting. Waiting to pick up the games that made their childhood. Waiting to see that great 3D effect in the palm of your hand. Waiting just to get their hands on that monster Nintendo call the 3DS! Nintendo has not only won back their hardcore audience, they have receiv...

Nintendo 3DS Hands On Impressions

1235d ago ... If you follow my Twitter I mentioned I tried out the 3DS at GAME and I'm going to tell you what I think and what I learned from the Nintendo reps who were there. Let me tell you the about the stuff I found out before I tell you about the experience I had with the device. Well I grilled the Nintendo Reps about everything I thought was important and here's what I learned. -The 3D can effect t...

Less is better?

1265d ago ... A recent trend in games I've really been not a fan of is "stream lining" the experience. This seems to be the phrase developers drop in interviews when they remove features fans loved in their last iteration of a franchise. A perfect example is Mass Effect 2 removing a LARGE amount of the customization options with weapons and armor that ME1 had. Why? If Bioware really wanted to streamline t...

Accessibility in fighting games

1266d ago ... Recently I keep seeing the topic of accessibility come up within the fighting game community. Players who are hardcore invested in the scene being turned off by the idea of simple mode control schemes, short cut input controls such as Street Fighter 4's, and lowering the threshold for things like teching throws. Personally it seems like both a step in the right and the wrong direction. Yes f...

Corporate Capcom Conundrum!

1284d ago ... *Disclaimer – You may find the following content to be bullshit. Disappointed? Yes. Surprised? No. That was my train of thought upon discovering that Capcom was blatantly plagiarising indie gem ‘Splosion Man. Released in 2009 exclusively for XBLA, the development company Twisted Pixel took their game to Capcom initially, but it was rejected. The similarities between the original title and Ca...

Remember Bruce Lee?

1326d ago ... With several iphone games at your fingertips, a sleeper is amongst us… what is it you ask? Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior for the high price of $.99. I found this iphone game accidentally on Brucelee.com The website is designed by Bruce Lee’s daughter and there’s even an online store to purchase shirts and posters of the great martial artist. If you like street fighter, just give this a try. The gam...
