Stop overhyping Ubisoft games! Yes, YOU!

104d ago ... I swear, EVERY time a Ubisoft game is revealed people go "OMG, it's gonna be amazing, GOTY, etc, etc!" THEN, a couple of months before release, you find something wrong with the game and declare it a disaster. THEN, people blame Ubisoft for seemingly overhyping the game, when in reality, Ubisoft was just doing their job and promoting the game like EVERY company does! Nintendo, EA, Sony, M...

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

104d 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'...

E3 Is Almost Here

105d ago ... E3 is right around the corner and here I am stuck once again in my cycle of life. Earn money, take care of kid, and hang out with the family. But I almost forget. I have to spend some time with the Playstation 4, but that will be difficult considering there are no compelling games to play. Oh well back to collecting dust I suppose. In all seriousness my Playstation 3 and Wii U have been gett...

Drama, Drama, Drama.

107d ago ... Bored and curious, I looked up a few YT channels. I won't name them, but you can guess which ones. I will say that they are quite notable and have been responsible for controversy. Anyways, I look up the channels, watch bits of a few videos and it suddenly dawned on me as to how much drama and sensationalism comes out of gaming journalism and gaming in general. Dead Rising 3 comes out to...

Innovation: Not what the market really wants.

111d ago ... Recently, The Order: 1886 got was shown in the form of a full gameplay video. Visually, the game is stunning. Sure, it isn't very colourful, but it really is on the level of CGI quality. However, no game is safe from negative 'opinions' and this was no exception. 2 minutes of gameplay brought out the hypocrisy of the gaming community. Not as much on this site as sites such as Neogaf and espe...

Games are Being Revealed Too Early

116d ago ... I've noticed a worrying trend in games that has gotten much worse in the last few years. Games are being revealed way too early. From the publisher's point of view they probably think a game can't be revealed early enough. The earlier the game is revealed, the more hype and anticipation that can be generated which should translate to large pre-order numbers. But revealing a game a year or two b...

Unreasonable Complaints:- May,19th, 2014 - Watch Dogs Protagonist

125d ago ... It just had to happen again didn't it? I hope, by the end of this blog, more of you will begin to understand why people like me take Social Justice Warriors, Professional Complainers, and the colloquially termed Sh*t Disturbers to task whenever we get a chance to. When apathy is the rule of the day, we only have ourselves to blame when an end result becomes unfavourable to us all. Today I'm...

You never cancel a pre-order early.... especially over something as stupid as graphics.

173d ago ... Gamers have made me angry ALOT over the years. Here's a small list of the stuff I've dealt with. PS4 haters. Xbox One haters. Wii U haters. Cheaters in online multiplayer. People who try to "expose" you. People who want Ridley in Super Smash Bros 4. But THIS topic takes the cake. Some of you actually CANCELLED your Watch Dogs pre-orders because the graphics were "downgraded" from wh...

The biggest BS in gaming history.

191d ago ... I'm surprised nobody else has bought this up, but if I have to be the one to do it, so be it. So, what IS the biggest BS in gaming history? Underpowered consoles? Too big a focus on graphics? The prices being too high? None of those. Memorize this line: "You speak of innovation when any attempt at it is dismissed as a gimmick." Do me a favor. Pass that saying on, because it NEEDS to b...

How the enjoyment of waiting for a game is destroyed

192d ago ... Oddly enough, it isn't the companies that's lower my enjoyment of waiting for a game; it's you people. How do you do it? 1)Endlessly complain about it not being on your console, which is understandable in some cases, but not when the reason has been stated numerous times, like in the case of Bayonetta 2 or Titanfall. 2)This actually connects back to number 1. Since the game is not on your...

You Know What's Bullshot?

195d ago ... Legend speaks of a time in which a product you were selling had to be representative of the final product at all times. These were the days of the False Advertisement Laws, when consumer interests were protected and you got exactly what you expected and paid for. Those Golden, Halcyon days of Yore have long since perished and in their place, dark days of deceit and the dreaded bullshots have re...

Get it through your skulls;Graphics. Don't. MATTER! (To an extent.)

196d ago ... So news recently came out that Watch Dogs was apparently downgraded graphicswise after its delay. I don't understand HOW they made it look worse. I usually respect the game creators, but I don't know what made them think it looked better than before. I could've had this back in November for the PS4 or Wii U or Xbox 360, yet it was delayed to "polish." Now, is the downgrade worthy of CANCELLI...

An open letter [of thanks] to Indies on Wii U...

219d ago ... This is something that has been rolling around in my mind for quite a while, now, but for ages, I haven't really had a push to deliver it in any solid form on any place where most devs could see it, like on a public forum. The recent delay of Watch Dogs on the Wii U has given me that push that I needed to finally come out and say what I should have said since I first bought Nano Assault Neo....

The RTU Debacle: Well, that's gaming journalism for you.

328d ago ... UPDATE: COD Ghosts Confirmed by Activision to be running at 1080p native on the PS4 and 720p upscaled to 1080p on the XBO. Another debunk: So, I watched ReviewTechUSA's video. I was completely mind blown by the outlandish claims that this guy was making. He said that he got them from 'Ve...

My Decision of Choosing PS4 or XBO

410d ago ... During the near final exams in my college, PS4 and XBO were announced especially games like Killzone: Shadow Fall gameplay and teasers of InFamous: Second Son, Deep Down and Knack and other multiplat games like The Witcher 3, Watch Dogs and Destiny and that was before E3 2013. I was excited for PS4 a bit then got into my final exams, finished exams and graduated on 13th June, happy that I have...

Regarding Ubisoft's Muck-Up of Watch Dogs

417d ago ... Yesterday, a trailer showcasing actress/comedienne Aisha Tyler's cameo appearance in Watch Dogs was released. For some, Tyler's appearance was nothing to blink twice over, while for others, footage showcasing her character could not come fast enough. Now, I'm sure most people are wishing it never came at all. The [unfinished] video showcased Aisha Tyler walking down a street in the more busi...

Some more about the games at E3

452d ago ... E3 has close its doors a couple of weeks ago, but its echo will keep singing for a while longer. Personally I really enjoyed the show and here’s a recap of some of the games I managed to get a closer look at. WATCH DOGS Since it was first unveiled at E3 last year this has been one of my most anticipated games. And, considering the current XboxOne “BigBrother”-Kinect debate that is going on...

Where is GTA 2099?

750d ago ... After seeing various news stories, trailers, and other assorted fluff about Ubisoft Montreal's Watch Dogs, I found myself wondering about something. Why aren't there more open world games set in the future? We have Assassin's Creed, wich has gone up to 900 years into the past. This is part of a framework story set later this year. Two months into the future isn't exactly what I'm referring t...

All Guns Blazing in Watch Dogs

831d ago ... We've all seen the Ubisoft E3 reveal of Watch Dogs, and if you haven't, I don't know what you are doing with your time. Either way, everything about it was magnificent. It was an unheard of game with a completely original game concept. Aiden Pierce, the one they played as in the demo, can theoretically control any electronics in the city? I say theoretically because I know only as much as the d...
