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

506d 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?

634d 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

733d 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

746d 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

764d 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

781d 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...

January Winners!

806d ago ... Congratulations, guys! There were some really great Blogs and Reviews this month, and deciding was incredibly difficult. Shout outs to Nate-Dog, coolbeans, darkpower and iamnsuperman, to name a few. A note about Blog and User review selections, since there's been a tiny bit of confusion in the past: We don't choose winners based on what we agree with, we choose them based on things like qual...

Lara Croft is Back | a Tomb Raider Preview

832d 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?

905d 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...

1038d 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...

An Insight into the Controversy of Tomb Raider

1045d ago ... As of late, there has been an uproar of disgruntled and frustrated gamers who have been up in arms about a theorized rape scene in Tomb Raider, the upcoming reboot to the franchise by Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics. For a brief insight into the plot (spoilers may follow, so please read at your own discretion), Lara Croft along with her mentor, Conrad Roth, and several other sailors aboard the...

Did Uncharted Really Copy Tomb Raider?

1056d ago ... Ah, the question that has been debated so many times since Uncharted first caught our attention when Naughty Dog announced it back in E3 2006. A “Tomb Raider clone” they called it, a “rip off” they stated but it wasn’t until the game first released in 2007 that gamers finally understood just how different Uncharted was compared to the PS1 classic Tomb Raider. Unfortunately most gamers today...

Tomb Raider (2013) Pre-Release Impressions

1058d ago ... "Crossroads," the extensive and in-depth E3 trailer for Tomb Raider was finally unveiled and I must say, my faith in the Tomb Raider series has been restored, fully. Although I expressed some paranoia and cynicism in my previous blog on the game, I will admit that while the new footage has undeniably thrilled and excited me, as well as tantalised my appetite, I remain sceptical on certain front...

Lara Croft Redone | a Tomb Raider Fan's Insight

1059d ago ... Even though it feels recent, it's closing in on two years since the announcement of Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics' latest project--a reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. Given the simple, yet appropriate name, 'Tomb Raider,' and with the tantalising and promising slogan, 'A Survivor is Born,' we were told to forget everything we knew about our action heroine, as Tomb Raider was going to be a...

The Sad De-Evolution...

1346d ago ... I want to start off by saying that I'm 28 years old and that I've been playing videogames for pretty much all my life. You'll understand later why this information is relevant. For as far back as I can remember, it was the late 80s and video games were simple, kid oriented colorful adventures featuring super hero type characters trying to save some kind of world or princess. There were no re...

E3 2011 is a big disappointment !

1414d ago ... What ???? How come it is a disappointment ? PS VITA , Wii U, Assasins's Creed Revelations, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Mass Effect 3, Elder Scrolls Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Tomb Raider and much more... No guys it's a disappointment. And a HUGE one. * Now tell me who did not expect Sony to unveil PS VITA ? We already knew it was coming. It's not a big deal. Okay, PS VITA is...

Microsoft's E3 Conference

1419d ago ... Modern Warfare 3 demo looked great, but I’m not a huge fan of Modern Warfare or similar games (I like FPS just not the Modern Warfare games), but I must admit this one has me interested. The game looks much better than any game in the franchise thus far, and the scale in the game is on a grander scale. I was impressed. Tomb Raider looked great, and I love the new survival direction they’re...
