    When the website changed blog updates, it kinda hurt a big part of the site's community for me. I used to follow some intelligent gamers who had things to say that were fun and interesting. I still ...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Owning both an Xbox One and a PS4 on the Xbox Discussion board.

    I also owned the PS4 first, and got the XBox One about half a year later. I think XBox has the more appealing exclusives right now, and I feel like they're in a better place direction-wise than the c...

    I think opening intros are kind of a lost art in modern television, but I understand that the reason they have gone away is because they take up too much airtime.The best ones are usually openings th...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Should I get an Xbox One? on the Xbox Discussion board.

    Forza 5 is probably decent. You should check out Twitch.tv streams of the game to see if you are interested in it. I guess the Top Gear guys also got in on the game and provided witty commentary. ...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Portable XBOX One on the Xbox Discussion board.

    Do you mean like a handheld? ...No. There's problems plaguing the PS Vita and 3DS, and it would just take away more development time from development teams to make more games for this new system.Th...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Do you feel that Mario 64 isn't a true platformer? on the Nintendo Discussion board.

    I actually enjoyed Super Mario Sunshine more than any of the other '3D' Mario games. It felt like a vast improvement over 64, and I liked the concept of the Fludd pack and the goop you could clean u...

    I don't think Microsoft should abandon Kinect, I think there is some sort of potential there - at least as far as interface design and making the Xbox One a whole entertainment center experience. I ...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic How Xbox is advertising in Japan and its so pimp on the Xbox Discussion board.

    I thought the video was kinda meh tbh. I mean it did an okay job of showing off the current offerings on the system, but the music was annoying and everything was waaaaaaaay too long.

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Will humanity ever become a interstellar civilization? on the Off-Topic Discussion board.

    There's so many different factors to consider in all of this. I guess my biggest question is, should we even be leaving Earth? And should we be out there in space? It seems to me that we still don...
