Are Developers Getting Lazy or Did the Current Generation Arrive too Early?

26d ago ... As someone who started gaming back when Atari was a big deal - I've owned almost every single machine to come out. It was no shock to my wife when the latest Xbox and PS4 came out that I was right there on day one money in hand to pick up the latest shiny pieces of gaming joy. At first - my enthusiasm for the new systems was at an all time high but has since begun to wane with indifference w...

Does the Last of Us play with the form more than we give it credit for?

32d ago ... The main complaint that critics and players aim at the Last of Us is that it doesn’t do anything new with the genre or medium. It’s always characterized as a game that perfectly executes an old formula of game design without bringing anything new to the table. Like the narrative and the gameplay are oil and water. This is true for the majority of the game, but there are some really crucial mome...

No Man’s Sky Really Sounds Like A Breath Of Fresh Air?

48d ago ... It's not like other games we have played before, this one somehow seems really different. You know, I have to tell you something, I can usually tell when a game is going to be good right from the second I see the trailer, the last game I was over the moon like this for was, the last of us. I just knew it was going to be something special. And I made that call before all the reviews and be...

Games that Deserve Their Own Movies

86d ago ... Movies based on video games have a poor track record these days. The movie industry doesn’t always care to produce quality movies based around some of our favorite games. Though, we gamers always seem to want to see our favorite video games turned into a movie. But why make them if Hollywood always ruins them? Of course, there is always a possibility could turn out very bad, but I’ll take those...

The GDC Has Gone Full Feminist And Can't Be Taken Seriously

120d ago ... It's time, once again, for another one of "those" blogs. A blog in which I share how ideology, -ists, and -isms, are digging their way into the gaming industry the way a Ceti Eel burrowed into Chekov's ear in Star Trek the Movie 2: The Wrath of Khan, eventually wrapping itself around his cerebral cortex and making him completely vulnerable to outside suggestion all while causing immense pain....

Why The last of Us Should Not Have a Direct Sequel

230d ago ... *This blog contains spoilers for the last of us* The Last of Us is one of the most successful games in recent memory, with lifetime sales above 8 million, and near universal praise from critics and consumers alike. Both Sony and Naughty Dog know this, and undoubtedly this has led to talks of a sequel. While nothing has been officially announced, Neil Druckmann, the games director, has pre...

Will we ever see the end of "Definitive Editions" games?

272d ago ... So it seems like this generation "Definitive Editions" of games are going to be the next big thing. What is a "Definitive Edition" of a game? Judging from what has been released so far you can conclude that the so called definitive edition is one that includes the following: 1)A release on any of the modern generation of hardware including: Ps4, Xbox One, PC, or WiiU 2)Higher resolution,...

The best demo I have ever played

327d 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...

Naughty Dog's Greedy DLC Plan & Why Fans Ask For Free Maps

334d ago ... This is the FULL Story as to why fans are upset with Naughty Dog's greedy DLC structuring with the Last of Us. In this blog, I outline why this is more than "just cosmetics", what the actual issue is, and why Naughty Dog has been getting a bad rep amongst the MP fans for how they've chosen to handle their consumer transactions. Table of Contents: 1) The Initial Article (And the Issue I Ha...

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

360d 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:...

I want an Xbox One, but I'm not getting one.

393d ago ... So I've been reading up on the comments for Microsofts E3 press conference, I can't exactly agree or disagree for any of them. I liked just about every game I saw. Each and every one of them looked exciting. Yet with every good game comes a buttload of ridiculous controversy. Just look at Watch Dogs. Here's a couple of post I saw. Keep in mind that they are NOT word for word. My memory isn'...

Stop Supporting Blatant Cash Grabs

450d ago ... I'm just going to come right out and say this at the very beginning, The Last of Us Remastered is a clear cash grab and poor attempt at bolstering PS4 releases in the wake of the fact that true PS4 releases are slow going because Sony didn't skimp on support for the PS3 just to bring games to the PS4. The Last of Us Remastered is just as bad as Tomb Raider: Fraud.. I mean Definitive Edition....

Video game Violence and the hypocrisy relating to it.

451d ago ... GTA V, The Last of Us, Ryse, God of War. What do these games have in common? Well, CONTROVERSY. For around 20 years games, gamers and gaming have faced controversy frequently regarding the depictions of sexual, violent or adult themed content found in them. Before video games there were moral panics over, comics, rock and roll, rap and even theater productions in the time of Shakespeare and...

Next Gen Ports: Why I'd Happily Buy Them

511d ago ... As someone who has bought a PS3 and Xbox 360 I've played my fair share of games, some of them I've loved like the Mass Effect series for example, I've had years of pleasure from my first steps on Eden Prime to the Infamous ending at the Crucible, But I've had more than enough time to enjoy myself and move on to later games. Now this is not a feeling I'm having with the likes of The Last Of Us a...

The Last Of Us 2: My Prologue

515d ago ... If Naughty Dog do decide to make a sequel to The Last Of Us (and I believe they will) then there are myriad possibilities. The world they created is vast and complex with factions and personalities ripe for the taking, but what I present here is my own personal synopsis of a possible prologue: Scene 1: The camera is zoomed in on a TV. A reporter is speaking hurriedly and nervously into a...
