About the new Tomb Raider...

So, Tomb Raider is getting a sequel. I loved the game by its gameplay, as it was fun and good looking, tough its story left a bit to desire. I like the new Lara, and I am cautious optimistic with the sequel. So, my friend Tommy (@teh_tomm...

 
 
 

About the Brazilian Price of the PS4

The Brazilian PS4 is the most expensive in the world. It cost 1850USD. When I heard about it I was disappointed and angry. How Sony could ask such absurd price, specially when the Xbox One is almost half the price? Them I remembered the c...

 
 
 

Jimmy Hopkins from Bully is on GTA V! Really!

So, this just crossed my mind. Jimmy de Santa, Michael's lazy, idiotic son and Jimmy Hopkins, the badass kid from Bully are the same person. Not only they share a similar appearance overall, but it makes a lot of sense that Jimmy grown up...

 
 
 

The Steampad is... Well...

I have no idea what line of thought gave us the Steampad (as I will always call it). It is different for sure. VALVe must have tried a lot of prototypes and then come to the conclusion that this weird controller is the best suited for wha...

 
 
 

The Best Thing of the SteamBox is no SteamBox

Yes, I believe after yesterday's announcement of the SteamOS, that we will not see a VALVe made SteamBox. VALVe will not risk their money on the venture of making a console-like PC and directly compete with PS4 and Xbone. And they are do...

The Xbox One Uphill Battle Will Continue

Microsoft, in the last few months, was the bad, bad guy of gaming. Its obscure, confusing and certainly anti-consumer DRM gained the rage of gamers. The fact the Xbone(how I will always call their new console) is more expensive, less foc...

Arcades are dead. I will not deal here trying to figure out why, since there is way too many factors here. But they died long ago, and now we all play games in the comfort of our homes. We play with people from all over the world thanks ...

 
 
 

The Brazilian Grey Market of Games

We have a particular kind of market here, maybe not unique to Brazil, when we talk about games. We call it the Grey Market. The Grey Market is an interesting case, and it is a constant to most Brazilian gamers wanting to buy games with be...

 
 
 

Expecting Bad Things

It seems that every time a new game is announced, people fastly goes to find something to complain about. I don't care why they do that. If it is for attention, if it is because they aren't loved back home, it doesn't really matter. I am,...

 
 
 

What Exactly Are You Relating To?

Novelas and Visual Novels

Novelas are Brazilian soap operas. They are very different from Mexican soap operas, since they don't have the over acting and implausible plots. When I was a kid, my family was poor, so we had only one TV in my house. And I have a mother...

Why I Like the Games I Like?

I bet a lot of you never asked this. Everyone have their own tastes and probably never asked themselves how come they like what they like and dislike what they dislike. So, today while talking at Twitter, I came across with this question....

 
 
 

A True Assassin

How Assassin's Creed III: Liberation finally achieved what their predecessors failed to. One of my main grips with the previous Assassin's Creed games I played is the fact that, for a member of a secret order of stealth assassin's, you ...

Nowadays my primary gaming platform is the PS3 and my favorite game is Battlefield Bad Company 2, so if will wanna play or get some help with a trophie, my PSN ID is Man_w_no_name. Feel free to ask me to add you as a friend. My favorite game of all time is Final Fantasy VII and the worst I have ever saw is Danger Girl for PS1.
