  3. Are Microsoft at it again?

    The past few months have been decorated with reports of Microsoft stumbling at every hurdle they come across, most notably their lack of coordination between key marketing executives who aim to get the Xbox One's philosophy across to the masses. While they seem to have dodged the no-DRM bullet, it looks like Microsoft are about to transition into yet another slump, this time with their "Games with Gold" promotional campaign on Xbox Live.

  5. PS4 v Xbox One: Controller Size Comparison

    One of Playstation's many downfalls with the PS3 was the annoyingly small size of the Dualshock 3. When holding the controller, players- especially ones with hands bigger than a 10 year old's- commonly struggled to get a real grip on it. Since the announcement of the PS4 many fans have remained suspicious on the size of the Dualshock 4; while the controller promises to offer us a flurry of new features, Sony only stated that the controller would be "bigger than the DS3", but would it be...

  8. Gaming Franchises That Need To Die

    Repetitiveness is a common factor in the gaming world, especially with game releases. Typically, once a game becomes popular we see a franchise spawn from it; Super Mario Bros being the perfect example.

Games such as Call of Duty and FIFA have honed their popularity and marketed their releases to revolve around a virtuous yearly cycle; making them two of the most formidable names in the gaming...
