Michael Pachter May Have The Best Job In The World

Michael Pachter May Have The Best Job In The World

Michael Pachter is the analyst every gaming site listens to, but really…how often is he actually right?  Michael Pachter made waves again this week as he said that Sony’s cloud gaming service, PlayStation Now, “Is a joke” and “This has no prayer of working.” Harsh.

PS4 vs Xbox One: Why The Feud Shouldn’t Matter

PS4 vs Xbox One: Why The Feud Shouldn’t Matter

PS4 vs Xbox One. To be perfectly honest, I don’t get console wars. They have been ongoing ever since I can remember but the most prevalent of any of these wars is the battle between the PS3 and the Xbox 360. With the dawning of a new generation of consoles we now are witness to the new war between the PS4 and the Xbox One. Even though we haven’t even had the opportunity to get a hands on look at t...

Violent Video Games Face Sin Tax

Violent Video Games Face Sin Tax

United States Vice President, Joe Biden, sees nothing wrong with taxing violent video games. A sin tax is in the works for violent video games. Throughout history different forms of entertainment have been blamed for what goes wrong in the world. In the 1920’s, ragtime and jazz were the blame and why the youth was corrupted back in that day. In the 1960’s comic books were said to rotte...

It’s A Cult!-Dino Crisis

It’s A Cult!-Dino Crisis

In many ways Capcom defined the survival horror genre with their flagship series Resident Evil. The story and gameplay style was unique and refreshing in a time when 3d platformers where the order of the day. After Resident Evil 6 was released last year many of us cried survival horror is dead and after spending more than 30 hours plus with Resi 6 it’s safe to say we may have been right. Rather th...

After 8 long years with our consoles of choice we have been treated to some of gaming’s greatest achievements, and some of its greatest fails (Duke Nukem Forever will be remembered forever but not for the right reasons.)

Free To Play Games & How they counter piracy.

Since there is a piracy problem I thought I should create this Free To Play Games list: Star Trek Online or STO is my favourite since it gets updated regularly and it is fun. The ground combat has gotten better since release and also the space combat is as fun as ever. The customisation is phenomenal. Any Trekkie needs this.  We’ve come a long way since Star Trek Online first launched in Feb...
