However, I find myself figuratively salivating after seeing the gorgeous screen caps for NBA 2K15.
1 - What do you think is the best platform for this game?
2 - Would I sacrifice too much (e.g., graphics, game play, experience, etc.) if I were to just purchase the game for PS3 which I already have?

[FINISH ALL THE GAMES]
Once more, here are the rules:
- I have to finish or beat at least one game a month. That basically means reaching whatever counts as an ending to the story mode, usually prompting a credits scroll.
- Side-quests and...
Tomorrow Destiny arrives for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Reviewers started receiving their copies over the weekend and the servers went online today. Of course, that means no day-one reviews tomorrow, so gamers will be picking the game up tomorrow based on the Bungie name, the pre-release news and trailers and of course, the hype.

The rules, if you didn't see the previous posts:
- Beat or finish one game a month. That usually means completing the main story mode and getting the credits to roll.
- Side-quests don't need to be finished. That way leads to madness.
- I can finish more than one game a month, but it doesn't...
Bungie’s latest game, Destiny, will be available on September 9th. That’s a long time to wait! Well, guess what? We’re giving away 30 Destiny beta codes this week! Take that, ongoing passage of time!

The point of this project was to try and reduce my games backlog, which goes back at least 10 years for some games. Unfortunately, new games continue to come out, and plenty of retailers (Steam, GOG.com, Humble Bundle) keep having great sales that I can't ignore, making my task almost Sisyphean. But I'm not giving up just yet, not after I've come so far!
As always, the basic rules of this quest:

The folks at Zapruder Pictures have created a live action, scene for scene recreation of the GTA V trailer (which takes place in Los Angeles). This is actually really awesome! And I love seeing stuff like this.

[FINISH ALL THE GAMES]
So I've just wrapped up the fifth month of trying to plow through my backlog. I'm actually quite proud of myself, though not as much as I will when I've been doing this for a year, or have finished up my backlog, whichever comes first.
A quick recap of what this is all about:
- I have to finish or beat at least one game a month. That...
ET may go down as one of the worst games ever made. If it's not at the top of every worst-of list, it's usually in the top three. It wasn't considered a bad game because of the era it was released, it was just a downright bad game. Critics slammed it for it's controls and called it a repetitive game. The game was so bad it's been long rumored that Atari dumped every remaining game... Read more →

and you tell me how you're doing, if you've chosen to join me on this quest of dubious usefulness but surefire satisfaction. First, for those of you just joining us or those with short memories, a quick recap:

Today ends month three of my little project (month two for those who decided to join in after my first post). A shorter month, but that's no excuse not to try. How did I do?
First, for those just joining us, a little recap of the "rules," what little there are:
- Beat or finish one game a month. This means doing what it takes to complete the main story mode and prompt a credits scroll.
- Side-quests and post-credit content are not...
I've been playing a lot of BF4 lately and had an interesting realization. I sit entirely way too close to the television when I play games. I think my original justification for it is that I wear glasses, so I need to sit closer to see. Except I wear glasses when I play, so it makes that point moot.
Anyway, I sit about 3 to 5 feet away from the 32" TV that I use for gaming. I'm sure that it's not good for my eyes, but hey. How close do you find yourself sitting in...
Taking a page from our database czar Kris, I thought that a good way to encourage us to finish a game a month would be to have a place where we could talk about what we're playing. Today marks the release of the survival horror game Outlast on PS4 (finally!) and I thought this would be a great place to start. It's a free download if you're a PS+ subscriber, or $20 if you aren't and I'm going to imagine it isn't... Read more →

For a while now I've had friends touting the wonders of having a PlayStation Plus account: the free games, the discounts. But I was never willing to up the $50, so I passed, since I actually do have plenty of games to play already.
However, Amazon offering PlayStation Plus for $30 on Black Friday? That was too good a deal to pass up, so my boyfriend and I each bought codes: we redeemed one for now, and we'll redeem the other next year. Yesterday, Best Buy also had a... Read more →
To be quite frank, the PS4 and the Xbox One are not worth the money right now. Here's why I believe so:
- Both consoles are missing out key features that were promised and are waiting on updates in the "future" . In some cases, these "next-gen" consoles lack basic functionality that their...
I have a rather bizarre issue with it. Whenever I turn it off (mostly on purpose after a gaming session, but sometimes on accident if my foot bumps the amplifier), it's ridiculously hard to turn it on again. Basically, it will turn on for a second, everything will light up, and then it will turn off again.
It's really obnoxious!
So, I'm in the market for a new... Read more →
