An open letter to Konami and its fans – The point of no return

Konami, Konami, Konami, so we meet again. You are, quite frankly, the shining example of how to take a successful business (one with lots of good reputation among the gaming community) and flush it all down the toilet. Now, don’t get me wrong, you’re making a killing in the mobile market, so much so that you have abandoned the core… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Women play video games – A response to Kotaku’s nonsense post about female gamers

I’m more than aware that sites like Kotaku have published a ton of click bait, rage bait and pure nonsense posts in the past. Even so, I think they might have out done themselves this time. So, what have they done this time then? Well…A couple of days ago, Kotaku published an article titled “Women Play Video Games” (written by… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Why is today’s games media so disgusted and afraid of digital booty and sex?

Sony’s E3 2017 press conference – A little too much VR, and not enough of news for the PS4

Well Sony’s conference has come and gone, and I’ve got to say right from the get-go, I’m pretty disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, I do love most of what they announced this year, however I was left wanting more from them. Last year we had so many awesome titles announced for the PS4, like “Horizon: Zero Dawn”, “God of War”,… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Pokémon Direct 6.6.2017 – A take on the upcoming Pokémon games

The latest Pokémon Direct hit the Internet Tuesday (maybe badly all things considered) and like many fans, I have assumed this was going to be all Nintendo Switch related.  Fair enough.

Journalists fall for fake Petition and use it to attack Gamers – The “Cancel Far Cry 5” petition aftermath

I’ve put forward the notion on countless occasions that the mainstream video game media will take advantage of every opportunity they get to throw their audience under the bus if it fits their narrative. Well, I couldn’t think of no better example of this than the most-recent event where an Anon created a petition to get Ubisoft to cancel “Far… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

SJWs are looking for a problem that doesn’t exist in Far Cry 5

So lately there has been an issue with Far Cry 5’s announcement, and the “issue” has been geared towards the antagonists and theme of the game. You see, the game takes place in a rural town in Montana (a bit of a far cry from your typical Far Cry game), and the antagonists are a part of an extreme right-wing… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

This is why Arrow season 5 has been so disappointing so far

Arrow has promised a lot to fans for it’s 5th season, especially to make up for how terrible the ending was for Arrow Season 4. The Season 4 finale was comprised of Damian Darhk and Oliver Queen punching each other as if they were in a WWE match to say the least, and it didn’t sit well with critics or… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!
