EA Access: A Perfect Move

48d ago ... This. Is. Brilliant. Completely and utterly B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T. So in a move similar to Games For Gold for Xbox systems or PS Plus for Playstation platforms, or more accurately Playstaion Now, Electronic Arts have announced EA Access: a service which will not only allow paid subscribers to play a number of older EA licensed games, but promises to give early access to upcoming triple-A product...

Captain Obvious Vs The 8th Console Generation (Xbox One)

459d ago ... With apologies to - know what? Just taking the damn name for myself at this point... _____ I've long held that the seventh console generation should have been delayed by one if not two years. Believed that since HDTVs were not yet established and that cell phone games would never become what they have, that some thought and consideration should have gone into that console cycle before it ha...

Captain Obvious Versus Random

566d ago ... As usual, with any and all apologies to the real Captain Obvious. Wherever you are... Yeah, just some musing and conclusion - predictions? - on recent events and subjects. ----- PS4 Preview: Ain't Seen Nothing Yet Overall Sony hit it out of the park with the PS4's announcement. It wasn't perfect however largely because third party devs such as Square Enix presented nothing new during...

Mass Effect 3: Leviathans; One More Thing

674d ago ... ***SPOILERS*** My last blog – which drew much attention and comment – inspired by watching a cutscene which revealed the Reapers creators, something in addition occurred to me while attempting to write down my immediate reaction to it. Choosing not to include it then because, again writing down first notions, it didn’t qualify. I’ve since given it a bit of thought and its this; How did th...

So, That Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC…

681d ago ... First and foremost plot and story details about the afore mentioned game, the series in general, are going to be mentioned so if you’ve yet to but plan on playing it and don’t want things ruined for yourself please stop reading now. Likewise the following will generally be about critical – read negative – observations of the ending for the Leviathan download content so if you happen to be a rea...

An Open Complaint: Top Nth Lists

695d ago ... An understandable staple of gaming and news sites in general, the go-to fluff piece on a slow news day, I personally am beginning to find top list becoming a growing pet peeve. Not for their very and often trivial nature, but how they are being utilized. While possibly an issue with coding, the first thing that comes to mind when going to the source of an N4G submission concerning a top list...

Explaining Mass Effect: A Theatrical Role Playing Experience

910d ago ... Fairly recently I came across a Youtube user by the name of Smudboy who does through story and plot analysis on games. Currently he’s on a playthrough of Deus Ex Human Revolution, has covered Dragon Age 2, but its his work on Mass Effect 2 which first got my attention. Multiple multi-part examinations that looks at specific characters, problems with the presented science and even conflicting ma...

Questioning Mass Effect

928d ago ... (Or Suprise JRPG Attack!) With ME3’s release just around the corner and the uproar surrounding it’s day-one DLC has gotten me reconsidering the series overall. Namely how while the first game has possibly marked a renaissance in how RPGs should be made, that quite simply the franchise has quickly devolved into theatrical driven exploitation rather than the action-oriented, thought provoking...

The Final Fantasy XIII Argument…Again…

960d ago ... With the imminent release of FF13-2 and the renewal of friction between factions of what once might have been called a singular fanbase before the game’s immediate predecessor caused massive division, thought I’d make an attempt explain the “troll” or “hater” side of things. If only because those individuals who are quick to make such claims upon their fellow gamers not only seem to do so from...

Captain Obvious vs Commander Sheppard

1070d ago ... (Preferably Fem-Shep in a game of strip poker, but I digress.) With the usual, since this is my third blog entry baring the title, apologies to Captain Obvious. This one is a long time coming. Ever since Final Fantasy XIII-2 was announced as both an attempt to correct game mechanic issues with FFXIII, and a direct continuation/expansion of XIII’s story. Something(s) which has caused major...

What "Kinect Only" May Mean to You

1196d ago ... Okay, so voice recognition has been made a notable issue recently what with Bioware announcing voice support for Mass Effect 3 through the Xbox Kinect. This has raised some vocal concern among the PS3 and PC communities as well as an almost expected amount of taunting from the Xbox 360 camp since this specifically gives their valued system something no other will be able to do. Now along co...

Captain Obvious vs the of Death of Consoles

1233d ago ... (With apologies to Captain Obvious if he feels like this is stepping on his toes. Obviously.) It occurs to me that as originally conceived console gaming is dead. That it died years ago during the PS2/Xbox1 era, and unlike the gap between the Atari 2600 and NES, it wont be coming back. Now, many of you choosing to read this will have to bear with me. You came into gaming as this death occ...

Console Disappointments: PS3 Home

1248d ago ... This isn’t the usual expressions of negativity made by people who have either never tried it, only dismissed it after a few visits as it was just starting up or refuse to even go near it because of, “broken promises” such as the trophy room. No, this is just some general complaining and criticisms from someone who does use it often. First up is scale and quality of virtual items. The pleasa...

Console Disappointments: The PS3 Web Browser

1258d ago ... Welcome to the first in a possible series of submissions – if not articles depending on actual approval – about my opinion about certain aspects of this console generation. Perceived disappoints to be exact. I’ll try to keep them short, sweet and hopefully thoughtful. First up: the PS3 browser. Something that I’ve defended on more than one occasion, given suggestion for sites to visit, but...

Captain Obvious vs the NGP

1328d ago ... So I missed the actual announcement and official reveal of the PSP2. Or the NGP as Sony's calling it. Regardless, thought I'd offer my initial reaction and get laughed at. Maybe make a few think "hm..." as you do. Anyway, my first thought is that the actual handheld should be called the PS3-nano. Launch titles for the bigger console were shown running on it with devs talking about how such w...

Pointless FFXIII Hindsight

1414d ago ... Or, How I Would have Done It. Like most FFXIII "Haters" I don't actually hate the game. Was just disappointed and underwhelmed with what was finally delivered after much hype and promise. Sight of the first trailer, the very first trailer, which hinted at steroid infused grown-up Kingdom Hearts styled gameplay as well as a possibly expansive interactive world. Not the largely linear title wi...

Dear Square: Get Your Head Out of Your F#*%ing @$$!

1569d ago ... Upon hearing about the thirty year development time needed for a FFVII remake, I could only assume that such would entail creating a 1:1 scale representation of the seventeen year old title. Incorporating all of the elements such as towns, a true overworld, and any number of things excluded from the pseudo-MMO realtime gameplay of FFXIII. Please refer to the title of this blog. In fact, read...

In Fear But Not Hate of the PS3 Web Browser? Here's How - and Where - to Use it!

1644d ago ... A few suggestions and advice that might get PS3 owners using the web browser on their consoles? Maybe?
