Has Microsoft dropped the ball with the Xbox One reveal or was this the best reveal of a new console ever?
Today whilst reading through some video game news and articles I came across and article that smelt a bit fishy. This particular article has made the gaming communities on the internet go slightly thermo-nuclear over something that in my opinion is not true. So what exactly is this article? Well Calvin Hall (an unknown blogger) claimed that he had a chat with a so called Activision employee at this years D.I.C.E summit. Game-Modos Richard does not believe the article and has set out to do some investigating.
The warning signs were there, our motion trackers should have picked up on it, but we chose to ignore the fact that there hadn’t been any pre-release reviews. We shouldnt have ignored the odd release date or the ridiculous amount of pre-release hype being pushed. But we did, and we bought it, and it was rubbish. I am talking of course, about the years biggest disappointment so far, Aliens: Colonial Marines.
It seems like we’ve been on the verge of it for a while now, and in fairness to Nintendo, it has already begun. But with Sony’s announcements this week, it feels like the Next Gen of consoles is really, finally on its way. Nintendo have got off to a reasonable, if slightly understated start. The Wii U has performed well enough, but apart from its first party efforts, games are based on the current gen. It seems like developers have been waiting for Sony and Microsoft to make their moves before announcing their intentions for new games, so perhaps soon the U will start to pick up pace, and potentially build up a steady fan base before the other contenders enter the ring.
The gaming scene has been anxiously waiting for what’s next from PlayStation, and with last night’s news, everyone has plenty to talk about. Sony has stepped out with quite a showing, and left us with plenty to anticipate in the coming months leading towards E3 and what is assumed to be a November launch of the PlayStation 4. Steven, Travis, and Game-Modo reader Samuel give their thoughts below on announcement impressions, what was missing from the event, and what they want to hear next.
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken has been available for PlayStation 3 and Steam, and is now available on PS Vita! Game-Modo spoke with Sandra Pondaag, director from Ratloop Asia, to find out if this version of Rocketbirds is of a different feather or if they flock together.
Strategy games, specifically those of the turn-based variety, have provided me hundreds of hours of entertainment. However, with each passing year, things change – both for me and the genre I have adored.
You have to love this time of year when we have just a few video game release’s, just 3 this week in fact It gives us gamers chance to catch up on our ever growing backlogs of games we have yet to finish.
Some of you folks may have noticed that Sony are trying an incentive to pull in more gamers to buy the Vita. What does this mean, really? Well they are doing this by offering $20 in PSN credit, 1,000 Sony Rewards points for convincing someone to buy a Vita. Is this really the best way to sell the PS Vita?
Rumors about the next PlayStation are flying with speculation everywhere, and announcement either at or before E3 is assumed imminent. So what’s to stop us from at least hoping the next PlayStation includes some of our requests?
