Capcom Is In Danger

296d ago ... Most of you by now must have heard that Capcom is in a lot of financial trouble. Gamesindustry.biz reports that Capcom currently has only $152 million in the bank, and that's chump change for a major 3rd party developer/publisher like Capcom.

$60 Price Point: Unhealthy Choice

342d ago ... The $60 price point has become the norm since the seventh generation launched. Games became increasingly more expensive to make (with going into the HD realm) and the rise of such rental and used games services meant more money is needed to be taken from the consumers to recuperate that lost revenue. But is the $60 more damaging than helpful to the game industry? In this blog I will attempt to...

Sex Sells? Well, Not to Gamers

746d ago ... So I came across an interesting article via a video game reviewer I watch named Angry Joe. He's an avid fan of Saints Row 2, so when Saints Row: The Third was announced, naturally he was excited. I'll admit that I was interested as well, but mainly because of the new antagonist of the game, Phillipe Loren. Needless to say if you ask either of us, we'll tell you Saints Row: The Third was a huge...

Are Publishers Getting Out of Touch?

1066d ago ... Now more than ever, gamers are getting a little wiser. You may argue against that, but that's really besides the point. We're critical, we whine, and we "boycott" (lulz).

Our voices can easily be heard for the juggernauts that fuel our favorite pastime. So why don'...

Game A Vs. Game B, or Game X Compared To Game Y.

1093d ago ... Well, if you've ever been on the front page, then you've seen some of these type articles. They can range from comparing the Grand theft auto series to Saints Row, or Battlefield 3 to Modern Warfare 3, and of course the Xbox 360 Exclusive to the PS3 Exclusive type of articles. I am not comparing any game to another game, no that's not what I wanted to address in this blog, rather I wanted to...

PS Pass complaints and Resistance 3 - Rational responses to complaints

1098d ago ... As many of you probably know Sony has announced its very own PS pass which is going to be implemented into some first party games. In short this is very similar to THQs or Ubisoft online pass, to play multiplayer a code has to be activated this comes with the game when buying new but you have to pay for this pass if you have a second hand copy *gasp* Yes this is the issue that has been getti...

1212d ago ... Hey, N4Gers! A rather serious post for you here, though one I think we can all tackle with vigor. The devastation in Japan is difficult for most of us to imagine, but what we have seen and heard makes us want to help however we can. For most of us, so far from the disaster, we won't ever feel like we can do enough. Below you will find a list of organizations that are active in Japan disaster...

There Is Nothing Wrong With Discussing The Earthquake's Effects On Gaming

1215d ago ... Over the past few days, I've been reading the comments in response to articles discussing the effects the Japan earthquake has had on gaming. Unfortunately, there is always a good number of people who rush in and condemn the website that posted the news and anyone who doesn't do as they do, all in the name of the victims of the earthquake. Here's the reality of it. Discussing the impact the...
