    Will MCC be the best Halo game once all the issues are fixed?

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 06 December 2014

    Do you believe that MCC will be the top Halo game to own once 343 fixes all the issues? Personally, I think so. I blame them for messing up the launch, but it is much better today and gets better every week. Unlike certain games (Destiny, Unity) I think this is a very salvageable project.  Should reviews also change to reflect improvement? Many reviewers changed their score when the online...

    Amazon Fire Phone drastically drops in price, now only $199 unlocked

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 03 December 2014

    The new Fire Phone (not a big seller) has just drastically dropped in price. For $199, you not only get a good phone but also a 1 year subscription to Amazon Prime, which by itself is $99. It's a big change from its original price at $649.99. Basically, if you were planning on getting Prime, for just an extra $99 you can get a Fire Phone off contract and use it however you...

    Eating Crow

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 November 2014

    Just gonna make a post about some of my stances which I have recently changed.  1. Game Delays My Original Stance: They are terrible and reflect poorly on the developer and publisher. My New Stance: We need more delays. After playing MCC multiplayer and Assassin's Creed Unity/Rogue, I truly believe that games should be delayed more. I was wrong when I insisted that games being delayed...

    Sony issuing refunds for Vita purchases before June 1, 2012

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 28 November 2014

    The FTC is making Sony refund either $25 in cash or $50 in merchandise vouchers to consumers who purchased a Vita before that day due to some false advertising on the Vita's cross-save feature.  https://games.yahoo.com/news/sony-refund-consumers-over-deceiving-171500651.html Sony stretched the truth of the PlayStation Vita’s capabilities in early advertisements for the handheld, and...

    Ubisoft is just being lazy with the PC version of AC Unity

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 28 October 2014

    Really, Ubisoft? Is your game so horribly optomized that it requires (at MINIMUM) a god damn Radeon 7970 (a very high end GPU) to run? This is just bullshit, and I am seriously pissed off at Ubisoft right now. First they gimped the PS4 version, now they release a completely unoptimized PC port? Did they learn nothing from Watch Dogs and AC4? Very much considering boycotting this game, as much as...

    Teenage Girl Shoots Man Dead Over PS4

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 20 September 2014

    What the hell is wrong with people? Daniel Zeitz is dead. Police say the 28-year-old from Roswell, Ga., advertised his PS4 on Craigslist. He went to a parking lot to meet the potential buyers. It was 9:30 p.m. last Friday night. As The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, the potential buyers, seated in a car, allegedly tried to grab the gaming machine from him. A struggle ensued. During it,...

    Miyamoto: Mobile gaming attitude "pathetic"

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 06 September 2014

    "In the days of the DS and Wii," Miyamoto told Edge, "Nintendo tried its best to expand the gaming population." The DS, and to a much greater extent the Wii, sold well because of their appeal to consumers who had traditionally avoided video games. During the Wii's heyday, in 2006 and 2007, the mainstream press was flooded with articles marveling at the Wii's widespread appeal. Nintendo found...

    I think Microsoft is releasing the One in the 2nd tier countries a bit too soon

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 09 September 2014

    I honestly believe they should have waited until the MCC was released, and then bundled the game with the console for free, with 6 months of Gold. That way, they are offering a console and four games from the most popular franchise on the console, along with 6 more months of free online play and Games with Gold. Yeah, it would mean taking a small financial hit in the short-run, but they are...

    Region-Locking is an outdated practice and needs to go

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 04 September 2014

    With the recent news about the New 3DS being region locked (https://games.yahoo.com/news/nintendo-3ds-region-locked-170200180.html), I am yet again perplexed on Nintendo's position on the issue. Their stance makes no sense, especially considering that both Sony and Microsoft have both taken off any and all regional restrictions from their consoles. What gets me even more is Nintedo's excuse on...

    What will gaming be like 20 years from now?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 15 September 2014

    Simple question. Will virtual reality be the primary way to play, or will we be gaming on 8K TVs? Which console manufacturers will still be around? Will physical media continue to exist? Will filthy mobile casuals overrun the business and kill off console gaming?  Will VGChartz still exist? Feel free to bump this in 20 years....

    A major part of the digital/physical debate that people forget

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 August 2014

    A lot of people say that the best reason to go physical is that you actually own the game. That's not true. You own the disc itself, but the game is licensed to you, just like digital games. Under the law, there is almost no difference in ownership. That being said, no one is coming to take away your rights to play your discs. At the same time, however, that generally doesn't happen with digital...

    SOE calls console gamers "peasants" in a friendly jab

    Don't Expect Too Many More Remasters from Sony

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 17 August 2014

    Looks like Sony will be scaling back considerably on the remasters as the generation goes on, which is a stark contrast to the earlier comments from Andrew House, which implied that the PS4 would see a considerable amount of PS3 remakes.

    We need more limited edition controllers!

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 17 August 2014

    I honestly would be estatic if Sony/Nintendo/Microsoft made more limited edition controllers. Not just solid colors, but game-based controllers, kind of like the Titanfall or Advanced Warfare Xbox One controllers and the Zelda Wii U controller. They look great, and probably would generate a decent amount of sales from collectors. I would love an Uncharted or Bloodborne PS4 controller, or maybe a...

    Should remakes/remasters be in the running for GOTY awards?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 18 August 2014

    This seems to be a debatable topic these days. Should games like Wind Waker HD, Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, The Last of Us: Remastered, and the Master Chief Collection be able to compete for GOTY awards? Or should they be barred from competition? Should there be a distinction between simple remasters and remakes?...
