    Second Blu-Ray Disc - Second dissapointment

    Well the other day I picked up my second Blu Ray disc. The first one I got which was 300 I was really looking forward to but due the stylistic way this film is shot it has a grainy look to it anyway. There are not many extras on the disc so for my 36 euro I was left wondering why I had bothered...

    Tomb Raider: Anniversary - The re-make

    It goes without saying that Tomb raider was one of THE definitive games to be released on the PSOne. It's 3D world and iconic character after even 10 years (thats a long time in the gaming world) are still well known today. IMHO it had a superb story, puzzles and environment and possibly one of...

    Hardcore Vs. Casual and their place in modern gaming

    The gaming industry has come on a long way since I huddled in a corner with my tape deck and played for hours on end just to get a 40kb game to load, let alone play it. Nowadays games are easy to access by a whole range of people. Singstar, nintendogs, buzz, wii, playstation, online...

    Wii NOT just for kids.

    It has been with dissapointment that many of us have read more than a few childish comments that have infered that the Wii console is just for kids. The control is seen as simple and therefore 'non hardcore' to many gamers. Some of which are too young to remember the good old days of tape based...

    Can the Wii capture a new generation of people?

    Is the Wii the console finally something that will get women and older people switched onto gaming with its novel interface?

    A few days ago I posted a small rumour article (from another source) that suggested that PS3 games would cost more than previously thought. At the time it was a rainy Thursday afternoon in Dublin and having already had a heated discussion with my girlfriend the day wasn’t going well. With no...

    Cost of new PS3 games:RUMOUR ONLY

    I am never prone to posting rumour but its a slow thursday afternoon and quite frankly in need of a little spice. Probably been covered loads of times but...and here it is...What IF (and its a big IF) PS3 games did cost a tad more than a 360 game. €115 seems like a huge psychological jump for us...

    Backward compatibility? Useful, or an unwanted distraction?

    Console makers seem to be trying really hard to make sure all their new equipment can still run last gen games. Is this really any use? And wouldn't it be better if they didn't waste their time tailoring the technology and drivers to run old games. I still have very fond memories for some PSOne...

    PS3 & 360 Rivalry. What a waste...

    I dont recall there ever being such hostile rivalry between formats and more importantly the people who support them. I'm not sure how this benefits the gaming community at all. Maybe we have grown so large as a community that the cottage home grown feel has been replaced with the more cut...
