So I called this a while back. I said that the Xbox 720 is going to require constant internet connection, even though it was stated otherwise.
Microsoft said they reversed their idea to make their system, require you to be a...
The other day I was checking out new releases on the Xbox Live on demand list, and to my surprise Final Fantasy 13-3 Lightning Returns was available, Day 1, digital release.
I was very impressed to see that, first time I hav...
So two nights ago I saw a game called X:Rebirth set to release the next day. The video looks amazing, and I pre-ordered / pre-loaded on Steam.
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.
The next morning I woke up and saw it was there on my desk...
I've never before even thought it possible to be worried about the next generation of gaming consoles. Never ever before have I thought "Damnit, it's coming, this sucks".
I am very confused by all the talk going on.
So yesterday I decided it was time to play something different. I was looking at RPG's and sales both on steam and Xbox Live. Turns out both have some decent stuff on sale.
I found Tales of Vespiria for 14.99 on Xbox Live. W...
GTA Online has finally pissed me off. I had put up with it's shit for so long and lost many levels and thousands of dollars, but I kept with it. Suddenly though yesterday I got hit with what many others have had happen.
I've been playing GTA Online since the launch, or 3 hours later I suppose. I've been having such a great time so far, but have found quite a few issues that are pissing me off to the max.
My first issue was actually getting ...
I'd been itching for a good RPG lately, so I thought I would see what was happening on Steam. I loaded it up, and then remembered I had The Witcher, and I'd never made it past the 1st town (because so many games).
Played it ...
MS, good job on reversing your insane policies. On a side, note, I've noticed that whenever the word policy, or policies comes up it usually means I am getting fucked over somehow.. anyways..
So yeah, rentals, used games, le...
I've been listening to many podcasts and reading a crap ton of gaming news, and there is one thing that people always seem to be missing. I hear so many people call in and say "oh, you only have to connect once every 24 hours...
I watched the reveal live, and until then I had never seen a public suicide before. I think this is the beginning of the end for my favorite game console series. I was sitting there since the start to see even just a quick sc...
Hey everyone, first off, this is (I think) only for people in Canada.
I have been going over my bandwidth cap of 120 GB / month for the past few months, and sometimes it is about $50 extra on top of the bill when it's time t...
About Skid Row Trash One of us since 11:36 AM on 08.24.2011
Hi, my name is Skid Row Trash. I have been gaming and creating add-ons and mods for games since I was 11. I'm 30 now, and I still love gaming. My first gaming system was a NES, followed by a Sega Genesis. After that, I got the Sega CD. I think I am one of the few that actually enjoyed the hell out of that system. I had to replace my Sega Genesis once because of problems, and had to replace my Sega CD 3 times, and repair it once. My first computer ever was a 386 with a huge 40mb hard drive, dos, and eventually windows. Started out playing games like wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, and the list really is endless.. Civ 1..
After this I got a SNES. What a fun system. This was soon after followed by a Nintendo 64, and eventually a PS1 and Gamecube. I had to exchange my PS1 once because it broke. After that I had a PS2, and an Xbox. I loved both those systems so much. I had to replace my PS2 3 times, and my Xbox 3 times due to hardware problems.
These days, I am gaming on Xbox 360, and PC. I don't bother with PS anymore because I have large hands and their analog sticks are way too close. I find both thumbs fighting each when trying to play anything on a playstation these days and much prefer the improved analog stick setup that Xbox 360 has.
I am currently on my 6th Xbox 360, and have Kinect as well.
My first one died from disc tray problems.
My second one I had Nyko Intercooler which actually melted into my xbox 360 and the 2 seperate things became 1 single entity.
My 3rd Xbox was a red ring of death
my 4th Xbox eventually wouldn't even turn on.
my 5th xbox still sorta works, but the disk tray takes like 40 tries to open and takes more and more time each attempt. Also when the door is closed it things the door is open, and thus I can't launch any games.
my 6th Xbox 360 was to replace my last one, but at the same time I wanted to have the most recent so I got a kinect package. Also, this is the first time I have had the ability to use HDMI with my Xbox 360, because all 5 xboxes I had before they kept sending me old units with only Component video.
anyways, I am a real big time gamer and like to try all games (except for sports because well.. sports are weak).
