Using cutting edge science (SCIENCE!) and broken hearts, we’ve formed the following list of games that’ll make you forget that your love life is about as dead as most of the stars you see at night.
Square Enix will always have a soft spot in my heart - I will always associate them with all the JRPGs I loved in my younger days. Last year, they lost a ton of money and went through some major restructuring, and now it seems to be paying off. Let's hope this leads to come more games for us to love.
Square-Enix had what they believe was a disappointing year in 2013m, despite having some of the year’s best (but not best selling) games. There’s been a bit of a management shuffle at Square recently – but the company’s changing more than just its management structure. Square Enix’s European CEO Phil Rogers says more than job titles have changed.
Sony changed the face of online networks when they released PlayStation Plus onto the gaming world and taking everyone by surprise by giving all their subscribers free games every month. What’s more is that these games were pretty new and generally very good.
Finally, we made it to the top 20 - and these are some fantastic games. I don't think anyone can argue with us about them, although you all probably will anyway. But we don't mind - they still made us happy during this gaming generation. As usual, the disclaimer is in place; this list isn't based on scores, sales or metrics, just on our discussions, bickering and threats against each others' loved ones.
I think I have battered woman syndrome when it comes to Square Enix. Back in the day, Squaresoft consistently released games that I loved. Lately, there have been a bunch of duds and weird statements from Squeenix that make question if they know what they're doing. But clearly that didn't mean any of those bad things now that they're saying good ones, right?
Oh Steam, why do you do this to me? I was just about to start working through some of my console backlog, but no, you had to come with another amazing sale including The Walking Dead.
Yesterday, we learned that United Front Games and Square Enix were teaming up again to bring us more games set within the “Sleeping Dogs universe.” As huge fans of Sleeping Dogs, the prospect alone has us rather excited. Here’s a list of 5 things we’d want to see in Triad Wars.
As a badass Asian killer with a penchant for pork buns and a disposition for seeing women exactly twice before leaving them for somebody else, I really related to Sleeping Dogs. United Front Games and Square Enix’s triad-focused open-world game was a surprise hit – and though it didn’t do enough business to meet Square Enix’s unrealistically high expectations, it looks it’s getting a sequel.
You can never have too many games. At least that’s what I said to my mom before she was crushed in an avalanche of Dance Dance Revolution and DJ Hero games. I’ll miss her, but at least I was right. Also, if I had bought online, she’d still be alive. Dangit.
We heard last week from an investor that big budget games are required to sell over 5 million units to break even meaning that Tomb Raider’s current 3.6 million means it is looking like a commercial failure.
There have been some leaks, and I’m not talking about your broke ass roof or plumbing. Apparently the teaser for the new Sleeping Dogs has been leaked as well as some PlayStation 3 trophies.
Sony’s PlayStation Blog updated yesterday, letting everybody know what games would be coming to the service – and the list has made me really sad. It’s not because the game’s that you’ll be getting free are terrible; in fact it’s quite the opposite. They’re mostly fantastic games; the problem is I have them all already.
Everybody loves them some action, just last night we were watching The Expendables 2 and I loved the crap out of every badly written line of it. The same thing applies to action games, we don’t care about the story, we just care about the ass kicking! However, we are fortunate to have gotten some great action games this year, most of which had an amazing story and/or art direction. The best out of all of them just happened to be…
If there’s one thing that gaming attracts, it’s talent. Skilled people from all walks of life have contributed to this medium in one way or another, and that’s something that really shines in the voice acting department. So, who had the best vocal chords to create a believable performance this year? That answer, was easy as the award goes to…
