I’m back, baby! What a week to show my face again, huh? I caught the flu and was so devastated I couldn’t make Gaming Happens (Or any!) videos for you all. It’s been too long; I’m so friggin’ glad to be back. Anyway, it’s Valentine’s Day today! For this week’s Gaming Happens, in the spirit of all the chocolate, I’ve concocted a list of my top 5 best and my top 3 worst video game romances. I hope you enjoy, lovelies. My gift for you on this precious day. Catch you next Friday with a new episod...
Could episode 2 wow gamers like the Wolf Among Us Episode 1 did? Its possible. There a few more twists and turn but it seems things are getting very interesting so far. The Gamer's Lounge has taken the time to review this episode and ask the hard hitting questions about what is really going on
Only the most dedicated, willing to spend countless of hours into fruitless effort, will get a modicum of enjoyment out of Elminage Original. Enjoyment is not the exact term though; rather, it will be a feeling of withstanding hardships, with no lingering gratification present. It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
"Following last week’s launch of two new figures in the Final Fantasy VII Play Arts Kai range, today sees the arrival of one of the most long awaited characters: Vincent Valentine from the Final Fantasy VII series finally makes it to the Play Arts Kai range. An ace gunman who was a former member of the Turks, as a result of the hideous experiments he was subjected to by the Shinra Company, Vincent has the ability to transform into ageless and indestructible monsters."
"Electronic Arts has revealed a new trailer for The Sims 3, celebrating the holiday season with the usual reverential humour associated with the brand. The Sims 3 is a hugely popular videogame across multiple formats, and this winter sees plenty of new content being brought to fans of the title."
A newly released study performed by the mobile device research institute App Annie Intelligence, using data collected by IDC, has found that the Playstation Vita is lagging in last place under many handheld markers. Mobile devices are dominating the handheld market, with Nintendo and Sony consoles lagging far behind. It was also found that half of all mobile gamers are female, among other important findings about the handheld and app-based gaming market.
"Last month Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) ran an interesting campaign across several online social networks asking gamers to respond with their favourite ‘#PlayStationMemories’. The culmination of that campaign has been revealed today as SCEE has unveiled the television commercial based on the responses."
"Three new action figures based on the Final Fantasy VII series are set to launch this winter, with Rufus Shinra and Yuffie Kisara set to be joined by the long awaited European debut of Vincent Valentine’s Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children design. These new figures are set to launch in two waves, both arriving this November."
According to Gamefront, EA have once again retained their crown with this year's edition of Fifa. Improved game mechanics have added a whole new level of realism to the game.
'FIFA veterans will immediately notice the increased intransigence of the ball, which behaves with a believable, physics-powered capriciousness.'
Fifa 14 continued to sell well this week in the UK and will continue to do so following the release of the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. If you're still sceptical about ho...
Daav from NoobFeed continues the football coverage by also handling the review for FIFA 14. The flagship title for EA Sports goes into some clever directions with a myriad of game modes, but it does have multiple flaws. Luckily, most issues can be forgiven when paired against their benefits.
"We all know that PlayStation Plus has increasingly offered some of the most high profile games around for Free. It seems the PS Plus deal keeps on sweetening, and why wouldn’t it? As far as gamers can see things, it just seems to make sense for gamers to get games for free. Over here at the RGN HQ, we’ve often wondered though. Just exactly why are some of these games being given away for free when some of them haven’t even hit their profitability marks nor become old yet?"
"Final Verdict: Far from a bad game, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 brings a compelling experience to the Sports genre for gamers of all kinds to enjoy. Nothing but good times are in store for those who are obsessed with this sport, or those who just love playing Sports video games. The initial shock of a game that doesn’t hold your hand is perhaps a symptom of how bad we’ve become at games as a culture since the recent ‘accessibility’ renaissance of western games. PES 2014′s Master League is the h..."

Unless, the group of seven can solve the puzzles placed within. But not all is gloomy as young Saki can find romance with one of the six males accompanying her.
Daav from Noobfeed returns to the pitch in this year's football release from Konami. In Pro Evoltuion Soccer 2014, some cosmetic refinements are added to the finesse in gameplay and there's even a way for newcomers to get started. However, other technical design flaws and gross online instability destroy a lot of the fun.
