Mass Effect 3: Bad ending?

844d ago ... *Spoilers alert* The interwebz is ablaze with the fury of Mass Effect fans. How dare Bioware end Mass Effect 3 as they did! Requests and demands for a new ending are everywhere. Not everyone may agree, but those who are upset are being very vocal, and the gaming media is eating it up and fueling the fire... because controversy in gaming means more readers (and for Bioware and EA this sho...

Crysis 2: Set up to fail?

1224d ago ... I fear that Crysis 2 has become the new whipping boy of gaming as of late. Everyone has it in for the game these days, or so it seems. Still, I think the marketing for Crysis 2 has to be at least partly to blame. If you are going to talk the talk, you need to walk the walk. The original Crysis was a beast of a game when it came out for the PC. Graphically it was just a monster, and few p...

PS3 Move and KZ3 could be the end of 360 shooter dominance.

1235d ago ... No one can deny the influence or sheer popularity of the 'shooter' on the modern console. A large number of people playing online multiplayer on the 360/PS3 dedicate at least some time to games Like COD, Battlefiled, Killzone, and Halo. To date, one could argue that much of the draw to the 360 and it's paid LIVE service has been for multiplayer games like COD and Halo. The hours sunk into M...

What happens if the 360 falls BEHIND the PS3 in sales?

1235d ago ... Since it's release, the 360 has done well to hold a sales lead over the PS3, even if the lead appears to be slowly shrinking. So what would happen if the PS3 were to finally overtake the 360 in total sales? I predict a number of things... not all of them bad. 1. The price of a 360 would drop: You don't think Microsoft would go down without a fight do you? Step one on stopping the bleedi...

Microsoft and 'core' games: Hardcore future... or 'WannaWii'?

1235d ago ... In this article I will discuss the fate and fortune of 'core' games on the 360 platform, and muse how Microsoft has treated it's original user-base (i.e. 'core' gamers). Has the 360 sold out to the casual gamers of the world? Is the 360 the next "wannaWii"? Is the PS3 the only true option for 'core' gamers? Like them or loath then, the people at Microsoft have played an interesting game t...

Fanboy Rehab 101: Overcoming the "little things" that tarnish great games.

1256d ago ... When reading game reviews I often find myself thinking that some writers are hyper-critical of game flaws, and thus (what I feel to be) a great game, gets a mediocre review. That being said, there have been a few occasions where a small flaw in a "great game" has bothered me like an itch that you can't scratch, to the point that I just can't stand it anymore. And in a world where great games...

Fanboy Rehab 101: How I learned to love Halo

1260d ago ... Halo:  You love it, or you hate it.  I used to hate it.  I hated it with an unfounded passion.  To me Halo was a figurehead of everything bad in the computer/gaming industry.  Halo was the game that fat-cat Microsoft stole from underdog Apple back in the days when no-one knew what an iPod was, when Steve Jobs was known more for being kicked out from Apple, and iMacs looked like fruit.  Yes, I w...

Demo Showdown: Bulletstorm vs: Crysis 2

1261d ago ... Tuesday was a good day for demos... especially if you have a 360 with a Gold account. Two heavy hitting demos were released: Bulletstorm from Epic Games, and Crysis 2 from Crytek. But in a time where COD is king and shooters are a dime a dozen, can either of these titles stand out? I will start my mini comparison with Bulletstorm. Why? Because for the first 24 hours I was unable to actua...

15 of PS3's Dirty Secrets: Shhhh... don't tell.

1263d ago ... The PS3 is a GREAT console. Great processor, strong exclusives, bluray, free online gaming, and more. But with all it's strengths, the road for the PS3 has been a rough one this generation. Here are some facts that Sony would rather consumers not know... #1: Sony lost A LOT of market share from last gen to this gen. The PS2 used to be king... by a long shot. But with a slow start, the...

360 vs: PS3 (a tongue-firmly-in-cheek matchup)

1267d ago ... Has anyone noticed the flood of anti 360/Microsoft articles of late? Is this the PS3 troll-brigade playing damage control due to the popularity of Kinect? Or, is the Xbox 360 a truly abysmal console? Find out in this unbiased, facts-only, head-to-head match-up between the PS3 and 360. Which console is the overall best buy? Will it be the 360 with it's shooters and new-found trendy gadget Ki...

Shipped vs Sold

1280d ago ... It amazes me how many people around here don't use these terms correctly, or don't fully understand them. It also does not surprise me that so many companies like Sony and Microsoft intermix these terms to make the sales of a product look better... knowing full well that most people just look at the number without thinking about it. As such, I will break down the meaning of both terms, and...
