    PS4 Will Be Released in Japan in February 2014... WHAT?!?

    I thought this was ridiculous at first, but the more I think about it I think Sony is smart for delaying the PS4 until 2014 in Japan. They pretty much have that market already won, no matter when the PS4 comes out. The Xbox 360 is pretty much dead in Japan, and the XBO isn't likely to do much...

    3DS or Vita

    I recently got a Vita after its recent price drop, and have owned a 3DS for a while. The two are totally different types of systems and can't be compared. I didn't think much of the Vita until I actually got one, and was pleasantly surprised. It's a great piece of hardware, a lot more than...

    Microsoft to Reportedly Drop Xbox One DRM

    Too little too late. They already lost me as a customer for good, after being with the 360 since the beginning. I think it's ridiculous that they are trying to pass it off as "we listened to our customers", especially after they double-downed on their original policy and defending it over and...

    Nintendo Now Taking Ad Revenue from YouTube Let's Plays of Their Games

    Many YouTubers make a living off of their ad money, especially the popular LPers. So when you take away their money they are going to be pissed. (Of course this isn't smart on their part to rely on it, because when their account gets flagged they're screwed and forced to make a video begging to...

    Xbox One Announced!

    This definitely isn't the case. A lot of the backlash is coming from fans of Xbox. Just look at the comments section in Microsoft's Major Nelson blog: Xbox Live's Major Nelson » Xbox One and Used Games : Most of the comments are negative and are from longtime Xbox users. Also, Angry Joe is a...

    Nintendo Now Taking Ad Revenue from YouTube Let's Plays of Their Games

    Not sure why anyone would defend Nintendo with this. Let's Plays give companies free advertising. When I watch a Let's Play it makes me want to play the game, it doesn't replace the experience. If someone uploads a movie or TV series, then that is copyright infringement and a company should...

    Xbox One Announced!

    Very disappointed that you have to install games and it gets tied to your account. Buying and selling used games is a big part of video gaming for me. But I guess this is the future of video games. Sony will likely do something similar. Publishers aren't happy about used game sales since they...

    Games You Hate but Everyone else Love

    Skyward Sword, though I wouldn't really call it a game that everybody else loved. People seem to be divided on it. Final Fantasy X - Not sure why it got so much praise. It was the first FF game I disliked, and I enjoyed XII more. Metroid - both the NES/SNES games and the Prime series - I've...

    Favorite Fighting Series?

    1. Marvel vs. Capcom / X-Men vs. Street Fighter - Always fun playing these games, whether it's in the arcades or on consoles. I'm also a huge X-Men and Marvel fan, so it's cool seeing my favorite characters alive in video games. 2. Mortal Kombat - The original on the SNES was the first...

    Minecraft: How Do You Play?

    Haven't played in quite a while so I know things are pretty different now. But I usually play as an explorer, going deeper into caves each time looking for valuable minerals, while creating a path back to my house. I keep enemies on, because it's fun to have that risk that you can be attacked...

    Is The Nintendo 64 Overrated?

    It depends on what you mean by overrated. It's definitely not the greatest console ever, and not even the best Nintendo console (that's the SNES in my opinion). But it was still a turning point in console gaming. It popularized the analog stick, force feedback with the Rumble Pack, 4-player...

    Best Looking Link.

    I like the official artwork of the NES/SNES-era Link For in-game sprites, ALttP's pink-hair Link is definitely my favorite, mostly because of nostalgia, but Wind Waker's cel-shaded Link is pretty nice, especially his expressions.

    Favorite Ways to Unwind in a Zelda Game

    ALttP: Abusing chickens in Kakariko Village until they attack me, and trying to avoid getting hit by them (as the screen slows to a crawl because of so much being on the screen) WW: I forget the name, but that cave that you fight a wave of enemies on each floor and gets harder on each floor

    What`s Your Favorite Video Game Series?

    Main Characters You Hate in Games You Love

    Uncharted - Nathan Drake - At least in the first game, I found his dialogue and corny jokes annoying. Assassin's Creed 1 and 3 (though I didn't really like AC3) Metal Gear Solid 3 - Nothing beats Solid Snake Every Final Fantasy game from 8 on

    Do I Need to Play Metal Gear Solid Before Metal Gear Solid 2?

    Yes, I would definitely play the first, since it is referenced a lot in the second game. The first is also the best game in the series, in my opinion. You can skip MGS3 though and go straight to MGS4 if you want, then go back and play MGS3.

    I'm a HUGE sports fan. I love the Lakers, Steelers, LA Kings and Dodgers. Basketball and Football are the sports I follow the most. I root for all the LA teams, plus the Steelers since for some ridiculous reason we still don't have an NFL team after 20 years! I've been a Lakers fan since I was...

    Raiden: Yay or Nay?

    I was blown away by the original Metal Gear Solid, and waiting a LONG TIME for MGS2. Then when it was finally released everything was great, until Raiden showed up. I never hated a character as much as I hated Raiden. But by the end of the game and multiple playthroughs, he grew on me and I...

    Nintendo Virtual Boy

    I remember reading a lot about the Virtual Boy in gaming magazines back in the day, before it was released. There was one at the local Blockbuster where I would go play the Wario game and the Tennis game. It was fun, but over priced and didn't have enough games. I always thought the controller...

    Midnight Releases, Do You Go?

    Skyward Sword was the last one I went to. It was a waste of a night to be honest. Other than that I've been to a Madden midnight release a few years ago and the PS3 launch midnight release. I will probably go to the Grand Theft Auto 5 midnight release

    Game of the Year - 2012

    I didn't play many of the big games that came out this year, but from the ones I played, I would have to say Mass Effect 3. As someone who played through the first and second games multiple times and loved the series, it was a perfect conclusion to the trilogy. Sure there were some...

    Favorite Exprerience with Zelda?

    I've got a few memories related to Zelda. The earliest would be playing the original and just wandering around the overworld having no idea what to do. I didn't even know the game had any dungeons until years later. Also when Ocarina of Time was released everyone in school was into it and it...

    Guild Wars 2 - What Are Your Thoughts?

    Wow, I never realized Skyrim's cover was reversible. Very nice. Mass Effect 3's cover was reversible, showing male Shepard on one side and female on the other: I always thought there were two versions of the game and was searching on eBay for a while for the variant cover, before...

    Best Avenger

    Captain America. Every Avenger has their own personal flaws and no one is perfect, but Captain America always does the right thing and stands up for his beliefs. I see him as the Superman of the Avengers, even though he isn't the most powerful, he definitely deserves to be the leader.

    Favorite Girahim Battle

    The final one was my favorite. The first two I found annoying. Even after several playthrough, I'm still not sure how to swing the sword so he doesn't grab it. Luckily the third and final fight adds new elements and makes it interesting.

    So How's About That Difficulty?

    a) I think difficulty in Zelda games should definitely increase. It's probably the biggest problem I have with the newer Zelda games. I know Nintendo is trying to cater to younger and newer games and want to keep it as universal as possible, but at least give us multiple difficulty options at...

    Worst Game to Play First in a Franchise

    Are You Going to Buy the Wii U?

    Meh, the Wii U hasn't really looked exciting to me. Nintendo really seems like they are one generation behind the competition. I will probably pick one up eventually, if only just to play the Mario and Zelda games which will undoubtedly be great. But there is no way I will pick it up at launch

    Avengers Opinion

    I really liked the Avengers, it wasn't a let down even though I went in with a ton of hype. I liked how it featured a serious story and a realistic world but still had that comic book style humor. That's what I love about Joss Whedon's work. I'm looking forward to The Dark Knight Rises and...

    May Giveaway Contest: Most Anticipated Game of 2012

    I will have to go with New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the 3DS. I recently played the first one for the first time (even though it's been out for years) and had a blast with it, it reminded me of the glory days of 2D Mario on the NES/SNES. So I'm glad they are sticking with the series with the same...

    The Rise and Eventual Fall of SEGA

    Nothings wrong with them, they still make good games. But business-wise they are struggling and seem to be doing worse every year. Back in the 80s and 90s they were as big as Nintendo and their number 1 rival. Now they are in danger of going out of business.

    Why Do Parents Let Kids Play M Games?

    Many parents just simply don't care. I'm sure some of these parents aren't aware of how different videogames are these days than when they were young kids, so they blame the games instead of taking responsibility themselves. I don't think it should be as simple as you must be 18+ to play any...
