My thoughts on Dragon's Dogma.

Why I just pre-ordered Dragon's Dogma.

It takes a lot to get me psyched about a game and Dragon's Dogma is one of those that got me psyched up for it. I have been following this game since the original site was in japanese and watched through the footage and interviews from the ...


Collaboration: Streets of rage arkham style.

Personally growing up in the early days of videogames I have seen them evolve from something that could be coded in a week or month to massive budgets and timescales with up to 3 years or more to make, possibly even longer if you count a ce...


Dreaming: Lord of the rings RPG. Why not?

Since the recession there was definately some scare mongering in the media like oh no we should do some sequels and cash ins and lay off the original concept games. One of the most frustrating examples is lord of the rings, so far it has ...


What excites me about Skyrim

I love RPG games. I've loved them back since the day they evolved from text adventures to sega rpg's like shining force to the western action rpg's you see today. One thing I've always wanted in the RPG genre is a decent open world lord of...


About Soulman101one of us since 5:04 PM on 08.31.2011

I am an aging gamer from England and being born in 1977 means I grew up seeing how gaming has evolved over the last 20 years. I started off with an atari 2600 and a amstrad cpc 464. I eventually moved onto the sega megadrive, the 32x and the saturn.

As sega started to wind down from being a console manafacturer I moved onto the sony consoles, owning a ps1, ps2 and now a ps3.

I'm not a big FPS fan apart from the odd one or two (I love the battlefield games), I'm not big on racing titles either but I love open world game series such as gta, saints row, elderscrolls and fallout.

I hate games that are more of a graphical showcase with very little content. I hate games where they make it really hard and punish the player for doing certain things, games are meant to be fun.

I love innovation in games and a creative eye,I love when they add little details like NPC's that have their own little routines, I love customisation wether it be your character, to a vehicle to a building or part of the game world your in, but most of all I love having lots of options and destractions that go alongside a main campain and allow the game to continue even after completion.

I hate the MMO model and when games take themselves to seriously.
