Stop Supporting Blatant Cash Grabs

7d 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....

The Two Sides of Reboots/Remakes

44d ago ... Introduction Okay! So first I’m going to give examples and then I’m going to explain at the end of both sides of the argument of reboots/remakes of movies and games. 2013 Tomb Raider The Tomb Raider reboot of 2013 is actually the second reboot of the franchise but is considered an entire retcon of the series since it’s a prequel and the title is just Tomb Raider. Anyway, the Tomb Raider...

Remastered Titles and The Gamers They Anger

64d ago ... With the announcement of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Rayman: Legends for next gen systems, gamers everywhere chose sides and voiced their opinions. Either glad titles like this, that they missed last gen, were being remastered and rereleased... or angry that developers weren't spending their time on new next gen games. At the beginning of every consoles life, comes a dry period. Wher...

Tomb Raider Xbox One and PS4 Graphical Differences

81d ago ... The internet lit up like a neon Christmas tree recently with the revelation of a framerate disparity between Tomb Raider on the Xbox One and the PS4. Whether you jiggle furiously with percentages or not, there is no doubt that the PS4 has higher framerates and looks more fluid. Numerous articles and numerous posts have debated the framerate to such an extent that something glaringly obvious has...

Don't gimp my PS4 versions (Part 2)

87d ago ... This is what I like to hear, no gimping of my products. When I want something, I want it produced and expressed as best as it can. Something else comparable can’t keep up? Well its their fault for not making a strong enough or efficient product. Don’t hold back your products, and make the public suffer. Give us the best experience you can, and you will shine because of it. I made a blog some...

Oh noes! It's 30 frames per second!!

91d ago ... Recently, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was condfirmed to run at 1080p 30fps on the PS4 and XBO. I expected this considering how quiet the devs were about frame-rate. What I wasn't expecting was the reaction. Obviously, the game is not worth $60, especially for the people who have already played Tomb Raider. Having said that, I have no idea why people are getting so angry from this news. M...

My top 15 games of the generation. (15-10)

136d ago ... With Nintendo, Sony, and Mircrosoft all having their next generation consoles out in the wild I think its the right time to start thinking about the games that defined this past generation. Before I begin my list I would like to inform you that there are a lot of games that I missed out on that might not be here. There were also quite a few games I played that were very disappointing that ar...

Dark Horse/Backburner Game?

263d ago ... Right I usually don't do blogs, or even post comments for that matter but thats besides the point,seeing as Pops and dedicated amongst other of you do quiet a few good blogs, I figured what the heck. Sure this blog will have nothing to do with the Phil Fish fiasco, which I have no idea nor the slightest interest in to be honest, instead this blog will cover what has been some of the top notc...

Upcoming current generation games I am excited about

363d ago ... 2013 has provided some great gaming experiences. Games like Dead Space 3, Tomb Raider, Gears of War, God of War, Bioschock and Crysis 3 showcase there is still a lot of life left with the current gen systems. This year is off to a great start and there has not been any shortage of good gaming experiences. As this year is already 4 months in and with next generation systems on the horizon....

Variety Is An Endangered Species

375d ago ... I was watching a 2 part interview that Adam Sessler had with Michael Pachter which discussed various different issues that gaming and the gaming development scene face today. Setting aside the fact that Sessler agrees with a man who has been more incorrect about his predictions than any average person trying to play along with an episode of Jeopardy, I was listening to what Pachter was talking...

No Respect... No Respect At All

394d ago ... This has been a screwy month for gaming, particularly if you're a Nintendo fan. On the plus side, several games have come out for the Wii U (specifically Lego City, Monster Hunter and Need for Speed U). All of these games have generally received positive scores and are just now becoming available. Furthermore, a new third party title, a rerelease of Deus Ex: HuRev, was announced for Wii U. T...

The problem with pre-orders

410d ago ... Games have come a long way since the late 80's and early 90's, it's needless to say really, but do we ever stop to think about how the business side of games has changed too? Most games we play now a days are developed by many teams all specialising in different areas, sometimes during development these teams hardly ever meet to discuss the project. It's a stark contrast to development teams...

Lara Croft is Back | a Tomb Raider Preview

462d ago ... Tomb Raider is a game that is undeniably on the radar of most, if not all gamers by now, whether it be in lieu of interest or because they’re waiting to see if it lives up to the expectations set for it. Regardless of the reason, Tomb Raider is for the first time since the late 90s, a game that’s close to number one on the lists of the most anticipated and most discussed video games to be relea...

Are trophies/achievements ruining game experiences?

534d ago ... After entering the world of gaming during the PS1's reign, I was blown away by titles such as: Tomb Raider, Metal Gear Solid and Driver (being particular highlights). Why? They required imagination to play and let the player do whatever they want; whether it be the way in which they decide to execute a mission, their play-style or how they decided to explore an open-world - it all required imag...

Beating a dead horse...

668d ago ... Last night I went to the cinema to see Snow White and the Huntsman, an alright film let down by Kristen Stewart trying to be enthusiastic and uplifting. During the film, a particular scene struck me and the bias against certain forms of entertainment became apparent. In the scene, Snow White is locked in her tower when the Queen orders her brother to fetch her. As he enters, he sits next to...
