Arcanum: The Overlooked Masterpiece?

20d ago ... I'm not sure how many of the younger crowd will remember this game, but in 2001, a little company by the name of Troika games released one of the most innovative and immersive games that had been developed at that time. Arcanum: Of Steamworks And Magick Obscura was one of the most in-depth games ever released in the 'steampunk' genre. A fantasy RPG based on the concept that magic and technol...

The Guardian Legend Reborn

370d ago ... This is, without a doubt the one game that needs to be remade for current or next generation. Allow me to explain. For those of you that are over the age of 30, you may remember an 'under the radar' title that was beyond awesome. A game that combined the adventure/exploration of The Legend of Zelda with the twitch space shooter gameplay of Zanac to form one of the best gaming experiences I'...

Sega Needs to Step Back in the Ring

442d ago ... Yeah, I know. We all remember disasters like the 32X, the short-lived Saturn, and the downward spiral that was the Dreamcast. Sega has a long line of frustrated customers and bad publicity when it comes to their console years. I myself was a victim of every one of these fiascoes. But...in the nearly 15 years since Sega became a dedicated software company, the industry has seen a lot of...

Oversaturation & The Nostalgia Effect

447d ago ... I keep noticing a lot of posts on various forums of people bashing some of the next-gen graphics and gameplay that we've been privy to thus far. I look at some of these teaser videos and gameplay demos and wonder how the hell anyone could look at this and say they're not impressed. The only possible reason I can come up with is that gamers of the latter generation have become oversaturated w...

Joining the Dark Side

457d ago ... Well, it's come to this. Me, an avid and voracious supporter of all things Xbox, has decided to go the way of so many before me, and purchase the Playstation 4 on release. There's been a lot of supposition on what the new Xbox will bring to the table, and though nothing so far is concrete, the overall outlook from the standpoint of a hardcore gamer is that the PS4 is going to be the machi...

Really, what's the point of another GTA?

462d ago ... I've come to the point of realizing that most gamers have their niche. Some of us love MMO's, some dig FPS games, alot of us go in for open world single player titles. The list goes on... But something else I've been realizing that some games aren't really evolving like others are. Take for example GTA V. From what I'm seeing the game has some beautiful graphics, intriguing storylines, and,...

What happened to games being challenging?

466d ago ... Maybe it's just me, but I can't help but notice how games today are being engineered to be much easier than they used to be. You old-school gamers know what I'm talking about; working for a month solid to get through Zelda II: Link's Adventure. Busting your ass to work your way through Metal Gear Solid. It seems like the whole idea of gaming has become a quick "jerk off" effect of instant grati...

DLC isn't all bad, but the bad's REALLY BAD.

468d ago ... I see a lot of heat from gamers like me over the whole DLC issue. It seems like so many game companies are releasing their games with the expectation of releasing DLC now. Many are offering DLC at release. It's easy to see why people are angry. You've just dropped $60 for the latest and greatest game of all time, and you find out that there's "extra content" you have to drop another $20 for. I...
