Stereotyped

The struggle for gamers

Stereotyped

Over the years gamers have been stereotyped as being nerds. Now this undoubtedly came from the days when video games were an anti-social activity, and could only be played in select locations. However, now a days video games are so readily available that every age and gender can play them will relative ease. I mean for crying out loud Xbox Live alone has over 23 million subscribers. Video games are no longer an activity just for individuals. Sure, they eat up time when you are bored, but I personally have the most fun playing video games when it's a social activity with others. Now that could be playing a game with someone right next to me, or using an online service. Video games are more fun with friends.

NY Knicks 2K11

Can the franchise return to glory?

NY Knicks 2K11

The New York Knicks might have missed out on the Lebron sweepstakes, but they greatly improved their quality as a NBA 2K11 franchise. The Knicks now feature a solid combination of youth and veteran talent, which is great for building or making trades to develop the roster yourself. Let?s look a little deeper at the New York Knicks:

MW Online Fees

Video Surfaces, IW Boss Downplays

MW Online Fees

A video recently surfaced on youtube, showing an option for an online membership to Modern Warfare 2. However, Infinity Ward head Robert Bowling wanted to clear up any rumors that might have surfaced and said their will never be membership fees for Modern Warfare 2. Maybe, but you have to expect membership fees in the near future. Too many things are falling into place for it not to happen. Take a look at the video....Read more

Bad Company Vietnam

Expansion or Port?

Bad Company Vietnam

The concept behind Battlefield 1943 is excellent. Develop a multiplayer only game, that is a complete replica of a critically acclaimed PC classic. Battlefield 1943 had four playable maps, and was designed on the same Frostbite engine Bad Company 2 was made on. With DICE bringing such a polished game to the arcade marketplace, it gained both critical and commercial success. Its price point of only $15 made it very appealing to gamers as well. However, what made it so enticing to me, was finally having the ability to play a PC game I loved on a console.

Hopes and Dreams

Does EA's Future Rest in One Franchise?

Hopes and Dreams

2010 was suppose to represent a time of change for Electronic Arts. They were going to change the perception of gamers that EA?s games lacked innovation and quality. The symbol of change was suppose to be one of their longest running franchises, Medal of Honor. The game was finally getting a much needed overhaul, starting with the time period the game took place in. Furthermore, EA entrusted two veteran studios to develop the game. The singleplayer campaign is being designed by EA LA, a studio with a strong track record, and the multiplayer is being developed by DICE, the studio responsible for the critically acclaimed Battlefield franchise. However, despite their best efforts, Medal of Honor has already failed to accomplish what it set out to do, which was to innovate and set a new standard of quality. A rare feat, considering the game isn?t going to be released for another three months....Read more

EA Selling

Game Giant Selling off Share of Ubisoft

EA Selling

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Electronic Arts is selling off its 15% share of the French based developer Ubisoft. No one has yet speculated about why EA is choosing to sell off their share now, however I believe this could be part of EA?s continued attempt to shrink their packaged goods business.
Conor O?Shea an analyst with Kepler Capital Markets believes EA has opened the door for a company such as Activision to step in and acquire Ubisoft.

Little League

Another Baseball Disappointment

Little League

A few days ago I posted a nice rant about the high number of problems that exist within the MLB 2K franchise. However, I also mentioned that while MLB: The Show looks greats and is very realistic, it fails to captivate a wider audience, because it lacks a ?fun factor.? Well I came across a new baseball game today, and guess what baseball fans it looks like another failure on our hands.

Goldeneye Reimagination

Anyone excited?

Goldeneye Reimagination

A few years ago when I heard Microsoft was working with Rare to bring the N64 classic Goldeneye to the Xbox I was jubilant. I mean who wouldn't want to play the originator of the modern first person shooter with updated graphics and online capabilities? However, the rumors were too good to be true. Nintendo was not going to allow one of it's competitors (Microsoft) to make money off a franchise that became famous on their system. Instead of a Goldeneye with a modern controller scheme, gamers are going to get a Wii exclusive developed by Activision who owns the James Bond rights. The game is now starring Daniel Craig, and while the gamer will recognize parts of the storyline, the adventure has been heavily modified....Read more
