Those who have been playing video games for a long time may flinch at this question. The truth can be difficult to face but hell, aging is difficult to begin with, so let’s tackle it.
The launch lineup for Nintendo’s new console has been revealed and frankly, it’s just one giant kick in the face. FOUR games at launch? Seriously?!
Everyone disparages the ongoing console wars but in all honesty, if this gigantic aspect of the industry goes the way of the dodo, the entire landscape will change. And maybe not for the better.
It’s a beautiful game – it really is – with a ton of appeal and a boatload of ingenuity. So why does is it also proof of a continued lagging on the part of Japanese game developers?
Final Fantasy XV has arrived and has earned decent critical acclaim. But here’s one long-time fan who won’t touch Square Enix’s latest with a ten-foot cattle prod.
The rose-colored glasses of nostalgia come off for a few minutes as we reflect on all the progress this industry has made in the last three decades. Be thankful!
Trophies and Achievements are now a customary part of the gaming landscape but in the eyes of many, they’ve sort of lost their appeal. What can developers do?
Donald J. Trump is the country’s new president and frankly, for many of those who grew up in the ’80s, it feels a lot like turning back the clock…with a dose of crazy.
The single-player FPS experience has certainly waned over the years, but does the very solid Battlefield 1 campaign prove the concept still works?
Nintendo hasn’t managed to appeal to me for decades but perhaps the time is right to revisit this iconic games manufacturer. There are only one or two caveats…
When the game is over, it’s over. Believe it or not, there are still people who just aren’t interested in DLC, New Game+ options, microtransactions, etc.
There’s just no denying that VR offers an entirely different interactive experience, which in turn means game critics are going to have to alter their approach. But how?
They say it’s “the future of gaming” and perhaps it is. But there’s no chance VR will fully and completely replace traditional play, so don’t get all worked up.
It’s one of the most anticipated games of the entire generation but given its history, one wonders if it will be the successful masterpiece we all hope it’ll be.
