The Battle for E3: Valve & Steambox

53d ago ... Valve & Steambox The Steambox fad has come and gone, as most people have come to the realization that a Steam Machine is nothing more than a limited PC, running Steam OS, which in itself is a limited version of Steam for Linux. That being said, there still a good amount of games to be played on Steam Machines; however, most are older games or unknown indie titles that might not draw the mas...

The Evolution of Video Game Violence

123d ago ... As a child the games I played were often fun, cartoony, and parental approved such as games like Super Mario Bros. World, Crash Bandicoot, Pokémon, Super Smash Bros., and more. As an adult games have changed. While the experiences I enjoyed as a child are still available for gamers of all ages, many games are now about shooting, violence, and gore. What happened and what changed in the mediu...

Halo 5 new XBO graphics King?

141d ago ... Let’s get this out of the way. Graphics don't mean the world to me, I play 8bit games, I spend countless hours playing Hot Line Miami, 3D dot heros, and other games that will never be considered GOTY graphics contenders. But thanks to what is now known as “Resolution-gate”, I’ve been wondering a lot about how exactly Halo 5 is going to look. Microsoft may have jumped the gun by announcing...

Best Next Gen Graphics. And the winner is....

158d ago ... Okay, so there's been a lot of talk about which game has the best next-gen graphics. 2 names constantly come up, and that's Ryse: Son of Rome for the Xbox One, and Killzone: Shadow Fall for the PlayStation 4. What looks best to each of us is highly subjective, but here's my opinion on the matter. And to me the best looking next-gen game so far are between Ryse, Killzone, and Battlefield 4....

How much am I willing to pay to play Nintendo’s 1st party games? That simple question will determine when you should buy a Wii U. Games and Promises Nintendo‘s main goal for the Wii U was to move away from the st...

Breaking Down Xbox one (Part 3: Competition)

260d ago ... Competition The Wii U can’t compete with the Xbox One in any way as far as hardware goes. But the Wii U has one clear advantage and that’s price (library is always subjective). You can buy a Wii U for $299 and it comes with a game, that’s a $200 savings and price will be a common theme amongst the different comparisons. The PlayStation 4 is the Xbox One’s main competitor going into the...

Breaking Down Xbox one (Part 2: Content and Cloud)

260d ago ... Content TV integration, entertainment, original content, and original games seem to be the big push for buying an Xbox One. TV integration is accessible through connecting your current cable box through the Xbox One’s built in HDMI-In port. Apps like Skype, NFL apps, music, movies, and more are being used to turn the Xbox One into a the “all-in-one entertainment system”. The final part of...

Breaking Down Xbox one (Part 1: Hardware)

260d 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...

The confusing state of the Wii U

309d ago ... Over the weekend I had a chance with an extensive session with Nintendo’s new console. I can say that overall my experience was pleasant. The Wii U is takes full gaming session before it can really impress it’s audience. Every game I played felt decisively Nintendo. Nintendo Land, The Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, and Donkey Kong all played great and instantly...

DRM: The Digital Future of Gaming

329d ago ... Microsoft’s decision to include DRM (Digital Rights Management) in their new console was met with a wave of hostility from gamers around the world, and as a result Microsoft was forced to change the original policies of the Xbox One to resemble those traditionally found in consoles. But was this the right move on gamers and Microsoft’s part? In my opinion it was at the time yes, but not in th...

E3 wrap-up. The Good, the bad, and the infuriating

389d ago ... Well E3 is over, and the dust has settled, but has each console manufacturer proved to you that they're deserving of your hard earned money?

So let’s dive and review Microsoft’s, Sony’s, and Nintendo’s E3 presentations, messaging, and games....

Sony’s E3 Show and Rating

397d ago ... Sony has had it easy thus far with the PS4, thanks to the competition’s fumbles. So did they take it easy at E3 or did they kill it. Jack Trenton: Yes by this point due to all the gifs the PlayStation bosses are celebrities. Jack comes out and thanks the fans and gives a quick overview of the PS3, PS Vita, and PS4. It’s nice, but let’s get to the games Jack. Batman Origins Counter Sp...

EA Conference and Review

398d ago ... Plants vs. Garden Warfare: Exclusive to Xbox One and later Xbox 360. 3rd person Action game (very shooter heavy though). It’s interesting to say the least, and looks surprisingly good graphically (running on Frostbite 3.0). It could be a fun multiplayer co-op game, but I personally can’t take this serious. Love PvZ though. Peggle 2: Announced? TitanFall: More gameplay footage. It’s C...

Microsoft’s E3 Show and Rating

398d ago ... Microsoft knew they had to come hard and be all about games after the horrendous Xbox One reveal, and that’s exactly what they did. But did it work? Metal Gear Solid 5: Microsoft kicked the game off with Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain, and boy does it look amazingly good, however, it’s also coming to PS4. It seems like MS and Sony have switched lovers with Sony courting Bungie, and Micro...

Step by step guide to survive Microsoft’s Xbox One

398d ago ... Well, it’s finally said and done, and Microsoft has decided to support the publisher over the gamer by forcing always online policies and DRM on the gamer depending on the publisher. Microsoft’s silver lining in all of this is that these standards are all subject to change at Microsoft’s discretion meaning it could possibly get better or even get dropped from the Xbox One, or it could get wors...

Hardware each console should/could have used

416d ago ... Now that the fat lady has sang her final tune, we can now relax all the rumors regarding what each console manufacturer is going to use to power their next-gen systems. While there is still a bit of ambiguity in some of the next-gen consoles (Wii U and to a lesser extent Xbox One) we pretty much know exactly what these new machines will be capable of, so let's get into some hard facts. As f...

Xbox One clarification

416d ago ... Used Games You will be able to play your game on any other Xbox One console as long as your profile is on that system. However, if you want to let a friend borrow it to get the 1000 achievement points in the game, then they have to pay a fee to unlock it. There’s no pricing details on this fee thus far, but rumors state it could be as much as buying the full game from the XBL store which...

Microsoft's E3 Predictions

417d ago ... So it's pretty much accepted that the "Xbox One" (hate that name) reveal was one of the worst in console history. And while I'm sure there are at least a couple more days of gifs, blogs post, crying Microsoft fanboys, and proud Sony fanboys, let's bring it back to what matters the most. Games. Microsoft showed some games at the conference in the form of EA Sports franchises, Quantum Break,...

Microsoft should have went first

418d ago ... Highlights and reactions MS new console will be officially known as “Xbox One” Multi-Media: Great multi-media services, and nice Kinect controls (I called the gestures and voice control last year), but I could care less. Guess the former MS rep who quit wasn’t lying. Xbox One specs: 8-Core CPU, 8GB of RAM (no confirmation of DD3 / DDR5), 500GB HDD, Blu Ray, HDMI, USB 3.0. Xbox One...
