Do You Even Third-Party Exclusive, Bro?

10d ago ... So with some of the recent rumblings about third party exclusivity and such, I thought it would be a good idea to raise the general morale (and maybe upset the fanboys in the process...not that I'm doing that intentionally). Right, so, with the recent announcement of Street Fighter V as a PlayStation 4 console exclusive, gamers are more or less losing their minds in both good ways and bad. O...

Console exclusivity and gamer hypocrisy

13d ago ... The big news to hit the Internet recently, is that Capcom's newly announced Street Fighter V will be exclusive to the PS4 and Windows PC. The mere mention of yet another high profile 3rd party IP getting the console exclusivity treatment has caused outrage amongst gamers. More specifically the Xbox crowd, who are outraged that a game from such a popular, previously multiplat franchise will b...

Destructive Creations' 'Hatred' Takes Video Game Violence to New Levels

63d ago ... As gamers, we are not strangers to violence in our favourite forms of entertainment; as a matter of fact, it's present in almost every video game today and a main selling point for the hottest titles. Video game violence has always generated a tonne of controversy, but more often than not, it was discounted as just part of the experience. We saw Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics take the Tomb Ra...

Falling Into The Trap Of Playing Cult Classics

67d ago ... During the spring and summer of 2014 I decided to go into my videogame backlog. My backlog at the time was deep and had a large number of games listed as follows: Max Payne (entire series), Vanquish, Tomb Raider (2013), Alan Wake, Bayonetta , Fallout: New Vegas, God of War: Ascension, Gears of War: Judgement, Ratchet and Clank HD collection, Jak and Daxter collection and many old games for the...

Game Remakes, A Double Take...

94d ago ... Every day there is a new article posted on remakes and ports, going back-and-forth as to why they love and hate the practice. Stating that Metro was a proper remake while Last Of Us, GTA and Tomb Raider are all just cash grabs. Slightly updated visually and repackaged. Tomb Raider was one of the best looking and playing games on next gen systems this year, above those others that were design...

A possible effect Microsoft needs to be mindful of

121d ago ... Like a man beating a dead horse I am going to write about the Tomb Raider deal. I am not a huge believer in writing about something that nearly every publication or users has already written about. But I feel one aspect of the deal is being overlooked; the one company that has the most to lose out in the deal is not Square Enix but Microsoft. Microsoft is no stranger to buying timed/exclusiv...

Under the Knife: Public Relations Failure and Fan Outrage

122d ago ... Despite the overwhelming press that Rise of the Tomb Raider got last week, the aftershock is still being felt. It has now been confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be a timed exclusive for the Xbox brand and not a complete exclusive that was being touted in the first twenty-four hours of this news. A lot of people have calmed down from this revelation, but there is still residual resentm...

Sony didn't need to win Gamescom; They have already won 2014

128d ago ... Today I saw two different strategies when comparing Microsoft to Sony and their approach to gamescom. Microsofts announcements were more aimed at selling more xbox ones, particularly in europe This was done by really bringing the hype for the big guns Fifa - Cod - Halo MCC/5 beta - Quantum Break - Fable - AC:U - Tomb Raider. The Fifa stuff was pretty pointless because we know of legends...

New Indie Projects to Check Out

128d ago ... Hello, everyone! It's been a good while since I wrote up something here. I have been sick for awhile and haven't had the opportunity to really focus on writing. For those of you I have messaged about doing an upcoming blog on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, I can assure you that I will get to that this month. You're help and opinions are very much appreciated. I also have been told about some t...

PC vs Console

154d ago ... Today I'm blogging about which is better to play on a PC or Console? Being a very avid gamer I love to discover new things and play on newer systems whether I am in the store such as, GameStop or at a friends. One thing I've discovered is there are a ton of PC gamers. Awhile I came across a gaming community called Steam. Most if not all gamers have heard of Steam. If not, here's a quick ove...

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

192d 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

250d 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....

A Top 13 For 2013

287d ago ... The gaming chapter of 2013’s officially one for the history books and with that final note comes the unflinching tradition of the pomp and splendor of the awards that follow. Always one to break with tradition, I take the time to display my very won list, crafted by yours truly appropriate to the year of its debut. Thirteen games for the year of 2013 is the only list I could make in good fai...

The Two Sides of Reboots/Remakes

287d 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

307d 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

324d 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)

330d 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!!

334d 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...
