Why more gamers are more against DLC`s nowadays than in the past ?

1175d ago ... If you look at my previous entries, you could get the impression that I am totally against DLC's. Actually I am more against them than favoring them but not totally against them. Anyway, comparing the situation to a year ago I think many more are against the DLCs than before. Why ? Here are my reasons. 1- Consciousness. Right now there is a solid consciousness over DLCs, in the past, when th...

E3 2011 is a big disappointment !

1198d ago ... What ???? How come it is a disappointment ? PS VITA , Wii U, Assasins's Creed Revelations, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Mass Effect 3, Elder Scrolls Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Tomb Raider and much more... No guys it's a disappointment. And a HUGE one. * Now tell me who did not expect Sony to unveil PS VITA ? We already knew it was coming. It's not a big deal. Okay, PS VITA is...

L.A. Noire Impressions PS3

1198d ago ... Any title by Rockstar excites the gamers.With GTA and Max Payne on their resume it's not hard to predict why.When L.A. Noire was announced, many thought that L.A. Noire would have a similar effect like Red Dead Redemption - Game of the year 2010 - in 2011.Although the game looks like a sandbox action adventure like Mafia, Red Dead Redemption or GTA, it's safe to say L.A. Noire is quite differen...

5 games that will keep you busy ( happy ) for a year

1221d ago ... Since most of us are hardcore gamers and keep track of the latest video games, get hyped up about new titles and buy them ``normally`` @ day 1, it is interesting to think about this situation which may never occur but a discussion material nonetheless: If, by any reason, you would be stuck to 5 games a year, which of those 5 games will satisfy you all year and make you play continously....

Sports games should be reviewed differently

1228d ago ... There are some common tools that they all use for reviewing games no matter what the genre and the platform of the games are. Also there are some tiny details which makes a game great other than good or an all time classic other than great. Those tiny details that add up to the overall quality of the game are a real factor in making the game great or an all time classic. What I mean is, when...

Top Spin 4 Impressions

1235d ago ... I am not a big tennis fan to be a honest. Football - soccer - and basketball are the ones that I really care and spend my time on. However, that does not mean I dislike tennis, I enjoy watching tennis tournaments and play it myself occasionally. My experience with the tennis games was limited with the Virtual Tennis series. I enjoyed them most of the time but it took only a small amount of t...

Mortal Kombat 9 Impressions

1245d ago ... Not just after getting our hands on the demo, we were already pumped up for the game since the day 1 that it had been announced. MK fans are quite unique in the gaming world. They are crazy about the game as many fans are about theirs but MK fans are much more influencing and powerful than them all. Game developer Ed Boon said that they listened to those fans and switched back to 2-D fighting...

Demos

1264d ago ... In 2011, only a few games go unnoticed. The media likes to pump up the gamers , increase the hype for a game before it`s released by publishing several articles about that game, hands-on, previews and etc... Thus, many know what the game is going to be about before it`s been released. Also, since some gaming websites have privileges over others, they review the games before the game`s been rele...

Crysis 2 PC : First Impressions

1272d ago ... I was not hyped about Crysis 2, deep down inside me I was concerned about it`s success as I thought expanding into consoles won`t do anything good for the series other than increasing sales numbers. Also I was concerned about the game not making the same impact as it did in the previous game as the game takes place in a city rather than an island which would make it seem less visually impressiv...

Football Manager 11 might be the best FM game ever

1273d ago ... Since their departure with Eidos, SI Games` football manager games were always on top of Eidos` Championship manager series. They have made several improvements to the series but the most significant one was the 3-D match engine in 2009. In 2 years, 3-D match engine has matured as the game itself. FM 11 is the best football manager game ( after Sports Interactive`s departure ) ever released....

Steam Power

1273d ago ... Let`s go back to 2003 for a second. Valve announces that they are going to release their much anticipated Half Life 2 game on a new distribution channel that they created called Steam. It took many off guard, people were telling each other 'what the hell is that for ' , anyway at least the name was matching ; Steam = Valve, allright. After a while, Valve released the famous Orange Box - a 3...

The Secret World - Is it going to fail or succeed

1273d ago ... It`s Funcom`s new baby allright. They came up with a teaser a year ago, it didn`t mean much other than knowing that they are making another mmorpg. Well, for me they gained a lot of credit with Age of Conan. It was a new IP from a new company trying to out compete a giant - Blizzard - . Sure, Age of Conan failed in the long term, or let me rephrase it by saying it didn`t meet the expectation...

Mortal Kombat Demo Impressions

1273d ago ... Since the day of the announcement I am waiting for April 19 - release date of MK - . The stage demos demonstrated for Gamespot @ E3, and other gameplay videos looked amazing. As a huge MK fan - MK II was my first game on gameboy 15 years ago - I was watching the MK trailers with huge pleasure and astonishment. The game looked great but I couldn`t get my hands on it... Until last friday ! MK...

Dragon Age II : Updated Impressions

1273d ago ... After spending some quality time on it ( 18 hours ) I would like to share my updated impressions about the game. I would like to start by indicating the pure fact that Dragon Age Origins is better than Dragon Age II. Better in story telling, better in animations ( some might argue combat is faster and etc and it looks better, i disagree - my personal idea - ), better in voice acting and bett...

Killzone 3 is a huge disappointment !

1273d ago ... For who ? For me as a big Killzone 2 fan and after google searching it for a while it is for many , not just myself. The cause of the disappointment is mostly the multiplayer part as you may guess. Campaign is okay, I could ignore it`s flaws as I do not care much about it – although KZ2 campaign mode was much more solid in many ways - . We care about multiplayer as many FPS gamers buy those...
