Nintendoom: Part 4: Changing the Future

71d ago ... And now the wrap up. We have a console in place with solid specs and a great price of $249. We have a handheld with more than acceptable specs and a great price at $149. And with backing from Disney, those specs. could be pushed a bit further without taking too much of a loss or increasing the price for the consumer, and fund more developers which ultimately means more games. So what’s the...

Nintendoom: Part 3: Specs., Price, and Performance

71d ago ... First and foremost the console has to be more powerful, but most importantly, easy to develop for (something all developers benefit from). The PlayStation 4 is the perfect example of giving developers, the gamer, and the community what they want, and reaping the rewards for it. At $199 - $249 the console can’t be a powerhouse if it launches between 2017 - 2018, but at worst it should be on pa...

Nintendoom: Part 2: Buyout / Merger

71d ago ... The other option, as I said previously, is to accept a buyout offer in their favor. A buyout rarely goes in the favor of the company being bought, but Nintendo isn’t a company filing for bankruptcy. It’s a company with decades of history, and a stable of franchises, games, and iconic characters that can enhance any entertainment investors overall image. Apple would likely be a big name tha...

Wii U owners unite for 3rd party support.

256d ago ... Alright so it’s no secret that 3rd party support generally sucks on Nintendo consoles. I’ve been on the defending side of both parties, but honestly the only party that can change the current situation and lack of proper 3rd party support is you, the gamer. So here’s a list of good no great 3rd party games that every Wii U should own if they’re a fan of the genre. Oh and remember, please “BUY N...

3 Platform Future: Sony + Conlusion

259d ago ... Sony has made all the right moves with the PlayStation 4 thus far, and the PlayStation brand is the strongest of the big 3 when considering all time console sales. There’s little for me to comment on regarding Sony’s future in the gaming industry. Their $380 million dollar purchase of Gaikai, and upcoming features such as SharePlay on PS4 shows their future in the gaming industry is in the...

The Battle for E3: Valve & Steambox

348d 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

418d 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?

436d 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....

453d 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....

514d ago ... Nintendo is having a hard time with their console right now, and for anyone asking himself or herself if they should buy a Wii U you should first ask yourself this simple question. 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.

Breaking Down Xbox one (Part 3: Competition)

555d 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)

555d 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)

555d 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

604d 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

625d 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...
