As a lover of fighting games, I greatly enjoyed playing DBZ: Budokai 3, or Soul Calibur II, and trying to unlock all of the characters and stages. Now, in the DLC era of gaming, all of these companies try to do whatever they can to sap away more than the $60 you pay for their … Continue reading Game Over – Mistakes in Gaming: The Street Fighter DLC Crisis
The Danganronpa series is considered by most as the holy grail for the PS Vita, with each installment of the main trilogy netting over an 80% review rating on Metacritic. They are easily must have titles for anybody that owns a Vita. As a collector though, the biggest problem when it comes to these games … Continue reading Holy Danganronpa Batman!
I'm going to start this article by saying that I'm guilty of being fashionably late to the PS Vita party. I picked one up nearly 5 and a half years after its release, and thank god I did because it's easily my favorite handheld ever. Not only are the graphics amazing, as a fan of … Continue reading PS Vita: The Ultimate PSP/PS1 Handheld
As a child born in the early 90s, I didn't get to experience the NES wave of certain game series, one in particular being the original Mega Man series. Instead, I grew up playing Mega Man X, and I loved those games, largely attributed to the futuristic setting, badass looking characters, and the amazing soundtrack. … Continue reading Mega Man X Legacy Collection
To many, last year was the best year for the PS4 when it came to games. A plethora of critically acclaimed titles were released exclusively on the system, Persona 5, Nier: Automata, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Nioh just to name a few.

When it comes to Spider-Man movies, there's always going to be an endless debate between who played Spider-Man the best. Was it Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, or Tom Holland? In my opinion, it's Tobey Maguire, now that's due to nostalgia, but no matter what answer you pick, someone will undoubtedly roast you for it. If … Continue reading The Spider-Man PS4 Hype
As I mentioned in a previous article, Sony stumbled with the PS3 mightily when it was first released. Plagued with a ridiculously expensive price, a lack of games, the early dominance of the Wii, and the one year head start of the Xbox 360, it's still surprising that they narrowly edged Microsoft for second place … Continue reading The PS3 Launch Console

For the better part of ten years, Sony was kicking some serious butt with the Playstation and Playstation 2. The former sold over 101 million units, more than triple the amount of the second place console in that generation, the N64, and the latter sold over 155 million units, more than seven times the second … Continue reading Near Mistakes In Gaming: The Close PS3 Disaster – Part 1
