Opinion: Music in Music Games; Are we not Tired of the...

With this year seeing the return of Rock Band and Guitar Hero, the musical video game genre is back on the rise, and while Rock Band seems to be sticking with the same formula allowing for backwards compatibility, Guitar Hero is heading down the innovative route hoping to woo players with a new control system and overall concept. All this is well and good for fans of either franchise, but there's just one thing that's ticking me off a little. I'm getting sick of the same old songs being added to the games.
Xbox One Console

Looking Back at the Xbox One’s Launch, I Don’t Think it...

In November the Xbox One will hit its second year anniversary and while the Xbox One today is way more appealing than the Xbox One from two years ago, looking back at the console's announcement and launch, things really didn't go as badly as some make it out to be, but what exactly was the big problem, and if the console of today launched two years ago, would Microsoft be in a different position?

Holy CRAP Netflix’ Daredevil is good!

I'll be the first to admit that my comic book knowledge is about as in-depth as a puddle. I don't follow any Marvel or DC super heroes, I don't read comics that often, and if I do they're usually three-panel webcomics. There has however been something inside of me wanting to explore comic books more but something a little different, something more obscure than the roster of characters everyone knows and loves. So in comes Daredevil.

iOS 7 – My Initial Impression

iOS 7 is here. Some have waited anxiously and not been able to contain themselves, others have just accepted its impending arrival and kicked back and waited. I'm part of the latter group of people. Don't get me wrong though, I've been looking forward to it, I think I've just been a little busy exploring Los Santos the past couple of days to get excited. Either way it's here now and it's time to move into the next generation of Apple's iOS, so lets get started...
Hatred

Opinion: Why is Hatred Spawning Debates on Morals in Games?

The basis of the game is that you'll play a man who has had a breakdown of sorts, is sick of 'humanity' and decides to pick up a small arsenal and head out onto the streets to enact scenes of extreme violence with no ethics or morals involved. The character doesn't care who he kills, murdering anyone and everyone in his path, including civilians and police.

OUYA

OUYA? No thanks. 3 Reasons Why I Won’t Be Getting The...

From the moment the OUYA was announced and hit the crowd funding site Kickstater I felt that this was to good to be true. Sure, it’s nothing ground breaking or anything new but it’s a nice little product to fill a (small) gap in the market.

Opinion: Thanks for Ruining the Internet, Desperate Lonely Teens

Now bare with me here while I have a bit of a rant, and if you're one of the aforementioned lonely desperate teenagers who frequent the Internet, bugger off because this post really isn't for you.

Miserable Old Bastard: Fiendish Freemium Gaming and the Demon DLC!

DLC, love it or hate it, it's here to stay! I personally despise it, well most of it anyway. Since it's conception in the womb of a title called The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, disguised as horse armour and priced to make the average, drooling idiot pay for a copy while PC gamers laughed in the faces of a console generation that grabbed at anything they could get.

Opinion: We’ve Become Too Reliant on the Internet..

Over the past week or so I've been doing the daunting task of moving home, during that time things are thrown into boxes, backs are broken moving heavy furniture, and all old services at the previous property are disconnected and new services are set up for the new property, unfortunately for me I left the broadband until (almost) last minute which meant that I had to go without the Internet for a week. "That won't be so bad" I thought to myself, I mean, I grew up during a time where the Internet wasn't really a big thing. It wasn't until now I realised how ubiquitous the Internet has become and how reliant we are on it..
