Those of us that are Final Fantasy fans have been waiting on the series of games based on Final Fantasy XIII. While I personally liked FF XIII, some people did not. Admittedly, I didn’t like the linearity of the game, but I enjoyed the story and absolutely loved the battle system. The negative press surrounding […]

The last time we saw Master Chief, he was placing himself in cryo after being marooned somewhere in deep space after saving the world. “Wake me if you need me” were his last words to Cortana as Halo 3 ended. In the teaser we got at E3 last year, Cortana was waking him out of […]

Aion is a relatively new MMORPG from NCSoft, the same company that created Lineage II and Guild Wars. Lineage II has had massive success in Asia, but didn’t fare as well in North America. While beta testing Aion this weekend, it seems like NCSoft is trying to learn from their mistakes and bring their new […]

“Ocarina of Time” in a Day?

  One of my favorite videogames of all time is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I was very skeptical about it when it came out because I wasn’t sure if it would work in the 3D world of the Nintendo 64. I reserved a copy anyway and picked up the gold cartridge on […]

This morning, Maximum PC posted an article saying that Epic will not be releasing Gears of War 2 for the PC. The reason why? Frontman Cliffy B. said, “Here’s the problem right now; the person who is savvy enough to want to have a good PC to upgrade their video card, is a person who […]

I grew up with arcades. The one I used to go to the most was “Space Port” in the Woodbridge Center Mall. The mall was split into 4 wings and “Space Port” was downstairs from “The Game Room” which had all the D&D and roleplaying merchandise. TGR is still there, but Space Port closed soon […]

Tron was one of those revolutionary films that was really pushing what movie makers could do back in the early 1980’s. The bluescreen process that Star Wars used had been invented decades before, but was really put to the test by Lucasfilm. Even though computer graphics (CGI) had been used in vector form in the […]

My love/hate relationships with fighting games

My love/hate relationships with fighting games

| July 29, 2008 | 2 Comments

There’s something exhilarating about fighting games. When you’re playing a first-person shooter or an RPG, or even an MMORPG, events unfold rather slowly. In Halo, you’re scouting out an area before being attacked, and in World Of Warcraft, you could ride for miles before seeing something to fight. However, in fighting games, you’re thrown into […]

Why I preorder my games

Why I preorder my games

This article on Ars Technica brought about a lot of comments about why preordering videogames is a stupid idea. I’d like to defend the notion of preordering and explain a little bit about why I do it. Preordering started with laserdiscs. There were so few printed that if you didn’t get one on release day, […]

Are Collector’s Editions “a bunch of crap”?

Are Collector’s Editions “a bunch of crap”?

| April 23, 2008 | 0 Comments

Watching “Cranky Geeks” this week, John Davison said that items like the Grand Theft Auto IV collector’s edition and the Halo 3 Legendary Edition are “a bunch of crap”. I have to disagree here because the “crap” is actually insight into how games and movies are made. Back in the days of laserdiscs, Criterion uses […]
