Capcom and the importance of niche

272d ago ... Recently, I picked up both Lost Planet 1 and 2 for Xbox 360 because I am currently obsessed with the film Pacific Rim and I just wanted to play the only games that would get me as close to that kind of world, both in style and action. I Started with Lost Planet 2 and... I'm more in love with this game than I have ever been before. I've played and gotten rid of it once already, but now I just ca...

The 3rd Times A Charm, The PS4 Is In A One Horse Race

283d ago ... The way it looks now the PS4 is about to handily outsell the Xbox One. This will be the 3rd time in a row a Playstation platform has outsold a Microsoft platform. This generation looks to be more of a PS2 type victory than a PS3 type victory. 1. PRICE It's the most obvious so I'll start here. The PS4 regardless of everything else it's better at, is cheaper. This is the first thing uneduca...

Breaking Down Xbox one (Part 1: Hardware)

326d ago ... Hardware The Wii U has been hacked (as far as revealing hardware), and Sony has been very open regarding the innards of the PlayStation 4; however, Microsoft has been very tight lipped regarding any finite details regarding their successor to the Xbox 360, Xbox One. All we really have from Microsoft is 8GB of DDR3 RAM 68 GB/s, 32MB eSRAM 200 GB/s, an 8-core custom CPU (still based on an AMD...

We are left to ponder what once was and what soon will be in the realm of video games. With every new generation, we are assured better visuals, with graphic fidelity far superior to what once was with the previous generation of consoles. We are promised new gameplay possibilities that coul...

Console Contradiction

353d ago ... This is my first blog post, actually its my first post period. So please bare with me. I'm about to talk about the 2 next gen consoles. With Gamescom, TGS, and E3 all finished, I think its fine to compare the consoles now. Of course with new information coming out each day, we can never know what to expect. The PS4 could suck with one post, vice versa with Xbox One. So here's my story. My...

Rant: I wish I #u(&*@! didn’t care.

353d ago ... I’m a gamer, I love gaming. For most of my gaming years I stuck to my good old Playstation 2 and 3, (Xbox 360 briefly)I then bought a High-End (2011) gaming PC and joined Steam. I always used to check Metacritic, IGN and Gamespot for reviews and impressions of games, I lurked NeoGAF (just for the GIFS) threads every now and again but for the most part I played games. I then joined NeoGAF and su...

All In For...

361d ago ... With the end of TGS looming, everything's on the table for two of the Big Three coming out with next-gen consoles by the end of the year. The most we'll get from either Sony or Microsoft now would be a simple policy explanation via twitter or short interviews but nothing that would dramatically shift the opinion in a consumer's mind. So, has everyone who is planning on purchasing a console by...

Gaming in Japan: What does the PS4 release date mean?

372d ago ... Sony recently announced at a press event that the PS4 would release during February of 2014 in Japan, 3 months after the Western market release in November 2013. The represents a big shift from every other Sony console release, all of which have launched either before or simultaneously to Western markets. Yet the strategy is symptomatic of a broader trend in the Japanese gaming market that...

Pendulum can swing in any direction Xbox One/PS4

380d ago ... Its amazing how these discussions all go back and forth. To many times the comments constantly change or it seems to favor one company over another. Even worse how the same commentators constantly give an opinion or create an entire different story. When the Xbox 360 came out it was the platform for Top AAA titles and indies. When the PS3 came out it had a few AAA titles and less indie games...

Are we ready for Next-Gen?

384d ago ... The question I have for everyone is "Are we ready for Next-Gen?" or are Sony and Microsoft releasing new consoles too soon? A year ago I would've said yes I am ready, I was getting tired of Xbox 360 and PS3. I kept telling people how much I wanted something new refreshing, and interesting. The PS4 reveal was when I thought really hard about it and how much we aren't really ready for a new conso...

The Presi-Console Election

400d ago ... I first heard this analogy on one of Giant Bomb's excellent podcast. They likened the E3 press conference between Sony and Microsoft as the presidential election with one trying to take a jab at the other. So in the spirit of me being bored on a Tuesday afternoon, I thought I will have a bit of fun and go a little bit insane. Microsoft is Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney did have a hard time avoidi...

Thank you Sony.

403d ago ... We have all been there toying with the idea to just give up on gaming and live a normal life they say. But sometimes you have to wonder to yourself if there is such a thing as a normal life without games. I had this episode about 3 months back after a long run with Microsoft's console that is the Xbox 360.I was playing as regular as every day and starting to get very bored with the online as...

Dark Horse/Backburner Game?

414d 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...

Xbox One self publishing to be what people expect?

420d ago ... Today information leaked on MS enabling self publishing for indie games on the Xbox One and that no developer kit would be needed and the console you have at home can be used. Now initially that sounds great and people on the internet seem to be happy about this, but there is one thing that might make the news less great. On the Xbox 360 we already have the, probably not well known, XBLIG or...

Xbox One: the console that divided a fanbase

421d ago ... Let me just get a couple of things out the way before diving into the topic at hand. I am not a fanboy, I know most of you hear this all too often from those who end up being blatant fanboys, but trust me I am not one of them. I've had pretty much every major console release ranging way back from the NES all the way up to my current consoles (the PS3, Xbox 360 and the Wii) and have enjoyed each...

Time-traveller: It's 2006 and Sony's gonna win!

437d ago ... Hey everyone, my name is Dedicated to Gamers. I know we're all excited about the next generation of consoles but I wanted to bring everyone back down to earth and talk about the Xbox 360, the Playstation 3, and the Nintendo Wii. Now, these are just my personal predictions, but I'll do my best to support them with facts. I really think that Sony is going to go for another landslide victory. T...
