Xbox One. What a Mess!

by on

Ever since Microsoft's decision to reverse the policies for the Xbox One, it had got me thinking whether they did it because of gamers outcry and disappointment or whether to save its own butt and fix their tarnished PR image.  In my opinion, MS did it just to save their credibility and image in the console market or else the Xbox One would just not sell.

AtheneWins, a youtuber who is mostly a PC gamer shares his thoughts about the whole XBone policy reversal, which I kind of agree.

I got to admit, this whole Xbone debacle since its reveal is quite entertaining to watch

Thanks MS for the popcorn entertainment.

Skyrim is smaller than San Francisco

by on

So I was playing Skyrim the other day and something struck my mind. I asked myself "How big is Skyrim compared to the real world?". So I went googling around to find some answers and I cam across this article.

A Physics grad named Matthew Sutton manage wrote an analysis on Skyrim's size and estimates to be around 2.4 miles from north to south and 3.7 miles wide from east to west. Turns out that Skyrim is actually smaller than San Francisco.

It's a small world after all.

April Fools....lololol

by on

So yeah anyway since I have built my new rig, there are some games that I'm planning to get for PC this year...

- Far Cry 3

- Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

Can't wait to see what this games are like in my new rig.

Gaming PC all finished...

by on

So today I have finished putting all together the parts for my gaming PC. Windows 7 is all installed as well as the graphic drivers for my GTX 680. I just have to install Kaspersky Internet Security and a few other software and its all ready to go.

The reason why I built a new rig is because I'm returning from PC gaming (I was actually a PC gamer for a start). The reason I bought an Xbox is because I didn't have the time to upgrade my PC or enough money to buy the parts to build a rig. This console generation is starting to show its age. I was all hyped about the next gen Xbox, but after hearing that Microsoft isn't announcing their new console this year, I can't be bothered waiting and decided to just a all new rig from scratch.

My New Gaming PC

by on

So I just purchased the new parts for my gaming PC. Here are my parts...

CPU:

Intel Core i5 2500 LGA 1155 3.3GHz

MOTHERBOARD:

Asus P8Z68-V-GEN3 Intel Mainboard - LGA 1155

HARD DISK DRIVE:

Seagate Barracuda 1 TB

OPTICAL DRIVE:

LG Blu-Ray Reader & DVD/CD Burner

RAM:

G.SKILL DDR3 8GB (2X4GB) PC-12800/1600 F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL Ram

GRAPHICS CARD:

Gigabyte Nvidia gtx 680 2GB

NETWORK:

ASUS PCE-N15

POWER SUPPLY:

Antec High Current Gamer 750W

CASE:

Antec One Hundred

I could've have brought better parts such as the cpu and ram, but it wasn't in my desired budget.

I haven't put in all together yet. I'll let you know in my next blog when I'm finished.

Buying games online

by on

So I've decided to buy games online from now on. I used to buy games in retail such as Game and JB hi-fi and I always try to avoid buying games in EB Games since they sell the games double the price.

Oz Gameshop is probably the best there is right now, but I also use Dungeon Crawl (located in Elizabeth St, Melbourne) since they are cheap as well and sometimes I browse through Game Lane. Steam is also good to buy games from there as well.

Level 20...OMG!!

by on

So it's been a while since I posted a blog. I've been busy playing with games such as Gears of War 3, Skyrim and Fifa 12. I've been busy with my Graphic Design, friends, games, etc.

Wow, I'm level 20 already? I've been in Gamespot for quite a while now way back since December 2009. I'm two years in Gamespot and still going strong. It feels like I've only been here for 8 months. Time flies pretty fast. I plan to stay her as long as I can.

So I'm definitely looking forward for 2012. It's going to be big this year with plenty of anticipated titles: Mass Effect 3, Bioshock Infinite, GTA V, Borderlands 2 (I'm a fan of the first one), and so on. What I'm really excited for is this years E3. I'm always excited for E3 every year, but for this year it's going to be big for me since all the rumours about a new Xbox console being revealed and announced, as well as the Nintendo Wii U being released this year. I was hoping that Sony will reveal the next PS4 in this years E3, but I was kind of let down when I heard the news that there won't reveal a new console to compete against Nintendo and Microsoft. It's either because they're going to stick with PS3's 10 year cycle or maybe due to the financial woes they're in right now (Yes, Sony is in trouble financially and have been losing money four years straight).

It looks like it's going to be another big year for gaming.

GameSpot and Call of Duty. Why the hate?

by on

So I've started to notice that most of the users (not all) here in Gamespot really hate Call of Duty. People here on Gamespot are complaining for the same reasons: recycled gameplay and graphics, same multiplayer etc and that they would rather get Battlefield 3. Yet, I find it ironic that the last two Call of Duty games happens to be the best sellers.

I bet that half of the users here on Gamespot who say BF3 will be better will eventually be playing Call of Duty anyway when they realise that BF3's playstyle is absolutely different from Call of Duty. Call of Duty seems to deliver the fun into the game straight away as soon as you start playing multiplayer, whereas in BF3, you have to earn it.
