  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Is the XBOX brand making a strong case about WHY it exists?. on the System Wars board

    I feel like XBOX as a brand survives mainly for two reasons:1) Halo. Without Halo, I don't think there would still be an XBOX brand. and,2) Options. Without the XBOX One, the PS4 would probably dom...

    There's a lot of really good indie games out now on PS4 and XBO. I spend just as much time playing indies as I do AAA games, actually probably more.You really have to judge indie games on a game-by-...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Are the Disgaea games fun to play?. on the PlayStation Discussion board

    The original was a great game, and the sequels are at least good from a gameplay perspective. I think you really have to be in a specific mood to play Disgaea, though.

    I think the 3DS is a shining example of why I always gravitate away from handheld gaming systems anymore. If the company can't make the handheld right to begin with, and need to release several revi...
