Who'd have thought that I could cut down on games! Originally had 10 to buy, cut it down to 4. Waiting for the sales again...

But I digress.

Against S.O.P.A

by on

Well, SOPA was voted on today, and from preliminary votes of 24-10 against, we against the act can be hopeful of its downfall. For those who do not understand or know what SOPA is, I suggest looking at the Wikipedia article on it.

The basics are this:

1: If the act were passed, you could say goodbye to companies such as Google, Yahoo!, Youtube, well basically all search providers and video hosting websites, as well as social websites.
2: Even though Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo are FOR the act, it seems very unlikely that further action will be taken if the act is not passed.
3: Almost every loyal video gamer should also be against this act, especially if you upload gameplay to Youtube
4: Watch the argument tomorrow at 10am (GMT-5), 3pm (GMT)

Too. Many. Games!

Why, I say? Why must so many good games be released in the month of my birth, November? If I were to buy all of the games I want, it would cost me almost £300! Unbelievable. As a student, I am (of course) on a tighter budget than usual. I am sure you all have felt thi way at some point, but I digress.

Firstly, my wishlist for November:

Ones I'm getting: Modern Warfare 3
Assassins Creed: Revelations
Need For Speed: The Run

Ones I've had to cancel preorder: Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection

Ones that were not on my preorder list (purely due to budget): Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Saints Row: The Third

Secondly, my point: Games cost too much these days, and even if this isn't the case, they release too many games in a short amount of time. This severely annoys me and I'm sure several other students feel the same way.

Finally, my question: What are we going to do about it?

Quote of the day, and see if you can relate it to this blog: 'Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.'- Theodore Roosevelt

(Ironically, we are the ones who live in the gray twilight, so lets do something about this.)

Eurogamer 2011 and New Content for Youtube!

by on

Wow! How one word can describe Eurogamer 2011 is impossible. It was just that good. Going of course on Sunday, Me and Decsta1Review explored the Expo and all it had to offer. We competed in a FIFA 12 tournament, destroyed the competition at Assassins Creed: Revelations, and I personally dispatched the enemy team in Halo Combat Evolved: Anniversary.

Also, Tomeluke is finally on FourNewGamers. We promise, a mic is on the way...

Close call!

Phew! What a long day. I was lucky enough to get one of the last tickets for the Eurogamer Expo on the Sunday. I'd just like to ask...

Is anyone else going?

If so, you may run into me (probably filming) while I'm going around formulating ideas for series for my Youtube channel, FourNewGamers

Me and Decsta1 (Decsta1Review) will be there, so give us a shout!

Looking forward to it!
