I'm an active PS3 and Xbox gamer. I love to write about my gaming experiences whether it's about games or consoles. I love everything tech related and do like to read up on all the new tech toys coming out.

The PlayStation Vita has been out for some time now and I have to admit that I haven’t been playing it as much as I thought I would.  Before the Vita came out, I had in my head that I would be playing the crap out of it and never want to put it down.  Sadly, this hasn’t been the case. Now don’t get me wrong, the Vita is a great system and offers some fun games and it has incredible potential.  Titles such as Escape Plan and Uncharted: Golden Abyss are tons of fun and immediately come to mind. Sadly, with a limited library, I simply haven’t spent as… (more…)

I read up on Rainbow Moon and spoke extensively about it with a PlayStation Network friend of mine before release. In all honesty, I was a little put off that it was a strategy RPG, which I tend to feel is a lesser form of the genre.  Being the RPG lover than I am, however, I thought I’d give it a try anyway. When I was given the chance to review the game for GameJudgment, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. As with most games, you work through a tutorial at the beginning that lets you familiarize yourself with the game. Since I haven’t played many strategy RPGs, I paid close attention to any tips the game gave me.  Despite… (more…)

When I first started playing online games, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 (GRAW2) was one of my favorites.  In fact, getting the Ultimate Defender achievement in GRAW2 was a memorable journey for me and my friends.  We spent countless hours playing through the MP and downloaded every DLC pack there was to offer.  As with most games, our interest started to dwindle over time, but we were sure there would be another installment of this great game and we figured it would only a year or two away. Fast-forward 4 years from 2008 and we have the release of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (GRFS). I had such high hopes for… (more…)

By: Daniel Beckett – Writer I was expecting quite a lot from one of the console giants – maybe too much. All I know for certain is that I was disappointed. Okay, it wasn’t all bad. Splinter Cell Conviction 2.0, ahem, I mean Splinter Cell Blacklist looked like it could be a very promising game. I had a great deal of fun with Splinter Cell Conviction and Blacklist looks like a much more refined version of  what was introduced in the last game. Not exactly revolutionary, but most certainly enjoyable. Halo 4 conjured up similar thoughts with the introduction of the Forerunners; showing new weapons and more importantly, new enemies…. (more…)

A sad moment in gaming history is about to fall upon us. Atlus announced that Demon’s Souls‘ servers will finally be shutting down on May 31, 2012.  They made announcements in the past saying the servers “may” be shutting down, but this time it seems final.  When you load up your game, you see a message saying the servers will be shutting down and they will be taking votes on how to shift the world tendencies for each half of the month.  This message never showed up with the previous announcements. Demon’s Souls is truly an amazing game! Many people called it brutal and others called it down right frustrating.  I,… (more…)

The OnLive gaming platform was released in the U.S. back in 2010 and has been under-appreciated ever since.  The idea  was to create a way for people to play PC games, without needing a high-end rig, through the power of Cloud Gaming – a form of entertainment that is sure to gain more traction in the next few years. OnLive’s game catalog has grown in leaps and bounds.  Although starting with mostly older PC games that required a keyboard and mouse, the service now offers tons of titles that actually let you use a controller.  Being a console gamer myself, using a controller is a must for me as I’m… (more…)

Party chat is that one feature PS3 gamers have wanted since launch, but still don’t have. Fast-forward to February 2012 when the PlayStation Vita released and what do we find? You guessed it! Party chat.  Seeing this made me happy, and I couldn’t wait for my friends to get Vitas so we could try out the system. I got my Vita when Amazon offered the First Edition Bundle a week before the system hit retail stores. It was fun to have the handheld a week early, but it also meant I wasn’t able to play games with anyone since they were waiting for the later release.  Once some of my… (more…)

Usually people think of gaming as just a silly, juvenile hobby. They say that gaming is a waste of time, only okay for blowing off steam or relaxing. When someone mentions gaming, raising money for charity isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind. Well, I think it’s time for that to change. Starting last year, an Xbox Live friend of mine put together a gaming event that helped raise money for the Child’s Play Charity. Since my XBL friend is a big fan of the FIFA games, he decided to do a 24-hour FIFA marathon to help. The idea came to him when his son had to stay… (more…)

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning does a great job of setting itself apart from other role-playing games. At its core, it has all the basic elements of a traditional RPG. You get to create a character (male or female) in the beginning, choose which class you want to play as, and level your character to your liking.  The beginning of the game acts as the tutorial and introduces you to elements of each of the game’s classes such as a Fighter, Mage, and Rogue.  It’s all pretty basic stuff for any RPG right? The twist is that your character died and has been brought back to life as the ‘Fateless One‘ meaning… (more…)

Like many gamers, I was very excited when Sony announced the PlayStation Vita at E3 2011.  I wasn’t so excited when they announced that the 3G model will be powered by AT&T, but still happy that a new Sony portable system was coming out. Once I heard about the February release date, I instantly went to Amazon to pre-order my Vita.  I figured it would be easy for me to choose between the 3G/Wifi and the Wifi-only version since I didn’t care to have 3G on my Vita.  I didn’t bank on Amazon offering a First Edition Bundle that comes with the 3G/Wifi version set to release on February 15th, a week… (more…)
