Some more about the games at E3

451d ago ... E3 has close its doors a couple of weeks ago, but its echo will keep singing for a while longer. Personally I really enjoyed the show and here’s a recap of some of the games I managed to get a closer look at. WATCH DOGS Since it was first unveiled at E3 last year this has been one of my most anticipated games. And, considering the current XboxOne “BigBrother”-Kinect debate that is going on...

PSVita has no love... from gamers only!

462d ago ... I have read many an article mentioning no love for PSVita from Sony, then from developers... but the truth is, the only that do NOT love PSVita are gamers! PSVita is a beautiful piece of hardware: slick, powerful and with a long list of games that range from hard-core to casual and that easily make its purchase worth. It's also a cool cross-gaming tool for PS3 (and in the near future) PS4 pl...

E3 - showfloor day one

465d ago ... Going to your first E3 is exciting and after the announcement of PS4 and Xbox One is EXTREMELY exciting, from a gamer's perspective. PLAYSTATION 4 Of course I had watched the live conferences on monday and my first stop was at the Playstation area. I wanted to take a close look at the PS4 and I have to say that's really slick. My first impression, during the live conference, was (and it wa...

Really only 65 PS3 gamers have moved around the world in the last few years?

475d ago ... I recently moved and in moving I happened to change country, change continent and change PSN region. Moving, even when it’s thousands of miles away is not such a big deal. Yes, packing it’s boring, yes, it takes time to feel at ease in the new home but all in all it’s always a good feeling to wake up in a brand new place. And I adopt the snail approach, always bringing my “house” with me: I pac...

Not allowing used games is a bad decision for everyone

480d ago ... I have never purchased a used game for my PS3 or my Xbox360, but I HAVE traded games in. There is a couple of reasons why I don’t buy used games. First of all I usually buy those that I’m interested in at day-one. Many have special editions that I like to collect and some offer pre-order bonuses I like to get. Gaming is my main hobby so I’m always current with the releases, that’s mostly why I...

Why I love Console gaming :)

499d ago ... First of all, I’m a gamer. I don’t play a machine, I play games, all of them, regardless of the platform. Sure I have favourite genres and titles and I don’t play everything (how’s that possible), but the point is, being a gamer is about GAMES, not being a fanboy (fangirl?) of a platform. I have a good gaming PC, I have a PS3, I have an XBOX360, I have a PSVita, I have a 3DS, I have a PSP, I...

Tali betrayed me, BioWare betrayed me!

534d ago ... Tali betrayed me, BioWare betrayed me! Yes, this IS a rant… (not about the ending though, this is about LOVE and CHOICE). I’ve just gotten around to playing Mass Effect 3 single player campaign (the life of a games is busy these days and I still have some catch-up to do) and after 20+ hours I found Tali, my love, cheating on me with Garrus! Why Tali, why? Now I admit Garrus is quite a g...

Gamescom 2012 recap and played games

759d ago ... Gamescom is a cool event and I'm glad I attended it this year as well. I really enjoyed the games, I really hated the Razer and Roccat booths that make such a deafening noise you can't hear what you're playing. I missed Tony Hawk's show, but watched a very cool one of acrobatic bicycles! Well, let's talk about the games, then: SONY: first of all what’s always cool about Sony’s zone a...

I can definitely say I enjoyed E3 conferences (almost LIVE) - part2

830d ago ... UBISOFT JUST DANCE 4 I confess, I watched Ubisoft's conference in playback (was too late for me to watch live) and skipped the first part ^_^'... FAR CRY 3 absolutely crazy, boobs for starters were quite a novelty but I appreciate a game that is not shy, since it seems you can kill people in the most gory ways, yet a female breast can generate such a big fuss (which is crazier than this...

I can definitely say I enjoyed E3 conferences (almost LIVE) - part1

830d ago ... My E3 from home (almost LIVE) -- MICROSOFT -- HALO 4 the trailer immersed the viewer into the gaming world straightaway. I especially loved the intricate and lush jungle, it was beautiful, rich in colours, it felt very large and gave the feeling of a lot of exciting exploring ahead. The enemies look is very cool, they jumped on the trees, cloaked and attacked you viciously (although they...

My 2011 multiplayer experiences part2

946d ago ... ... CONTINUE RESISTANCE 3 KIND of GAME: retro-futuristic shooting, set in the ‘50s but with alien technology PROs and CONs: Pros > Super-cool weapons and abilities, nice leveling up, good maps and gameplay, fast matches Cons > low frame-rate, abilities make the difference giving substantial advantage to more advanced players (but, after all, that’s what they’re there for, so this is...

My 2011 multiplayer experiences part1

946d ago ... It’s mid-February already but I’m still playing many of the online released in 2011. Last year has been a very exciting year for gamers and while I didn’t have a chance to play everything I wanted I did pick many of the multiplayer releases out there. This is what I’ll be talking about, the online, multiplayer aspect of the listed games (no co-op and/or single campaigns taken into considera...

GamesCom 2011 final day, from a real gamer

1122d ago ... Why from a real gamer? Im not a journalist, I´m a passionate and enthusiast that is not living the fair from behind the scene but from in front, doing queues, standing in line for hours and all that jazz ;)! Well, I had nothing "big" left for my final day (since I didn't mean to spend it queuing for Battlefield 3 that will be in my hands in just a few weeks, nor queuing for MW3 although I w...

3rd day at GamesCom 2011 from a real gamer

1126d ago ... Why from a real gamer? I'm not a journalist, I´m a passionate and enthusiast that is not living the fair from behind the scene but from in front, doing queues, standing in line for hours and all that jazz ;)! MASS EFFECT 3 So yes, I wake up early, went to Cologne´s Trade Fair early and "rushed" to the EA´s space to get an head start on MS3 and I did it, only like an hour of queue (compared...

GamesCom 2011 2nd day from a real gamer

1127d ago ... Why from a real gamer? Im not a journalist, I´m a passionate and enthusiast that is not living the fair from behind the scene but from in front, doing queues, standing in line for hours and all that jazz ;)! Well, my second day at GamesCom started with a little disappointment. I was set to go straight to EA´s space (which is basically one third of Halle 6) to get an head start on Battlefiel...

GamesCom 2011 1st day from a real gamer

1128d ago ... Why from a real gamer? Im not a journalist, I´m a passionate and enthusiast that is not living the fair from behind the scene but from in front, doing queues, standing in line for hours and all that jazz ;)! Well, so I`m in Cologne now for the GamesCom and looking forward to another 10 hours at the fair. Yesterday was a cool day fun-wise, in fact the fair was crowded (more than last yea...

An objective take on the E3

1556d ago ... Now that Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony conferences are gone we can really look at their take on E3 2010 and, as gamers, rejoice about the months to come since all 3 have shown the audience great things to look forward. Luckily for us European all 3 conferences were set at good times with Microsoft and Sony in the evening and Nintendo in the afternoon. (EA was in the evening too even if a bit...

What trophies do better than achievements ...

1587d ago ... My original article: http://thechickgamer.blogspot.com/2010/04/what-trophies-do-better-than.html It took a while to have an "achievement" system implemented on the PS3, called trophies. Obviously the Sony people didn't immediately realize the power and scope of XB360 achievements system, however they certainly did a great job with Trophies. In the end I actually think that Trophies do a...

2010 games you shouldn't miss - playing the hardcore way: Mass Effect 2

1589d ago ... Mass Effect 2 Immersive experience but does have some gaps. The second Mass Effect biggest merit (which is the same as the first one) is that it totally immerses you in an alternative, sci-fi, fantastic world. Anyhow have to say I'm a bit torn about Mass Effect 2: - on one hand when you arrive to the end you cannot help feeling totally part of the experience, "been there, done that" s...

2010 games you shouldn't miss - playing the hardcore way: Heavy Rain

1589d ago ... Heavy Rain A very intense and compelling experience The trophy one unlocks right upon finishing the first chapter is "Thank you for supporting Interactive Drama", so that's exactly what Heavy Rain was in the minds of its creators and what it really is as a game. It sort of feels like playing a movie and you decide how it should go on and proceed. It is an intense, unique experience and...
