    This weekend was a busy one, for us geeks.Firstly, the Playstation Network was hacked again, by a 'Distributed Denial of Service' attack. But as though that weren't enough, the hacking group also issu...

    If the masses don't already look at gamers and techies as worthless wastes of society, then these hackers sure aren't helping our cause.

    Coming Up: 20 XBO Games I'm Following

    The other week I talked a bit about XBox One games I may get through the end of the year, and it got me thinking about the long-term of games on the horizon for the system. Over the last couple of wee...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic What is your favorite Halo game up to this point???. on the Xbox Discussion board

    I don't really like to pick favorites, but for me it comes down to Halo 3 and Halo 3 ODST. (Of the ones I have played.)I voted for ODST. Sure, the game wasn't about Master Chief, and it was short in c...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Sunset Overdrive PC version possible?!. on the Xbox Discussion board

    It is a little disappointing. You need some level of exclusivity. You need exclusivity to choose one system over another, otherwise it comes down to which piece of hardware you like best. And I hop...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Xbox One - Good or Bad?. on the Xbox Discussion board

    People made some pretty good points so far.More PositivesI'd also agree that the XBO UI is better, and nicer-looking than the PS4 one. The colors really pop, too. I imagine I would get more out of ...

    Grats, and thank you. Hopefully you'll get some time to relax and enjoy some video games again. I hope you're enjoying the XBO!

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic ori and blind forest. on the Xbox Discussion board

    It looks pretty good. The two things that came to mind for me, back when I saw the E3 footage, was something like "Spirited Away meets The Lion King". It kind of reminded me of the old SNES Lion Ki...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Questions about XB1. on the Xbox Discussion board

    @birdgang_1: Actually a few forum posters here have made topics discussing Microsoft's efforts with the XBox brand in Japan. Microsoft appears to be making some effort to promote the system there, a...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Should I Switch from PS4 to Xbox One?. on the Xbox Discussion board

    @skilledwhiteguy: I got the PS4 at launch, and messed around with it a lot for two months until about the end of 2013. Around that time my free subscription to PS Plus ran out and I couldn't play Ki...

    Pre-Ordered, Game Outlook, Balancing Act

    Today I decided to pay off my pre-order:Sunset Overdrive. I don't know what to say, the game just captivated me ever since I first heard about it however many odd months ago. It's a game I've been loo...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Microsoft, change your strategy, or drop out (long read). on the System Wars board

    For me, personally... There aren't really any exclusive games I'm looking forward to on the PS4. Maybe it's just me, I don't know, but there aren't.Bloodborne might be alright, I did enjoy Demons' S...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic help pleaseeeee. on the Xbox Discussion board

    The online marketplace for the XBox One still seems pretty small. The newest game demo is still 'Thief'. The newest releases are still 'Killer Elite 3' and 'Guacamelee'. It isn't being updated eno...

    Gamescom, and Competition

    Lately Gamescom has been happening, kind of crept up out of nowhere this year. I feel like, in all honesty, the event wasn't as big this year as it was last year. Or maybe that's just the way it feels...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic To those who think Ryse sucks. on the Xbox Discussion board

    It likely does suck, and doesn't look all that appealing to me. But if Microsoft gave it out for free on Games with Gold, I'd likely download and play it, and get some enjoyment out of it.

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Microsoft sucks and so does their Xbox. on the Xbox Discussion board

    I would point out that Sony does essentially the same thing as Microsoft. Most of their second-party companies that develop Sony-exclusive games are really just third-party companies that Sony works...
