John from The Gamers Lounge writes "Nintendo has never been number one on my must have gaming console list. I have been a SEGA man since the Master System days, then an Xbox guy after the Dreamcast faded away. But recently with all the bickering between XB1 and PS4 fanboys about resolution of games, graphics and game length, I have found myself playing less. Maybe I was just reading too much social media or maybe I hit the Destiny bottle too hard. But for whatever reason I wasn't having that ...

"None of the Mario Kart titles are particularly bad, but there are definitely certain titles that stand out from the pack. As an avid Mario Kart fan who has grown up with the series since its origin back on the SNES in the early 90s, I will attempt to provide my karting expertise to bring you an informative and comprehensive list that ranks all 8 games."

"This is a list, but it’s a different kind of list; it’s a list about corruption and the games that deal with corruption. It’s important for people to know how the different forms of corruption can affect the way we view the game world, interact with the characters and how it ultimately helps change our perception on the real-life effects of such a damaging occurrence."

On episode 85 of the Gamers In Beta Podcast, the crew re-assembles for another year of podcasting. This week’s poll question was “What are your favorite gaming accessories?”. This was a popular question as we got a lot of feedback from the community, plus we had a lot of items to share as well.

GG3 writes: "Online service Pornhub has cataloged its lengthy statistics for 2014 in a series of insightful infographics.

Xbox wins the overall stake, as 45.7% of console traffic originated from a Microsoft box, while Sony users came in short with just 40%."

Disney Planes: Fire and Rescue is heavily based off of the movie and we highly recommend watching it before checking out this game.

Writing up a series of my top 10 games I've noticed a trend I picked up on a while back. And that is that the future of a fair few of my favourite games seem to have been discontinued, cancelled, or their sequels are extremely reclusive.

After working out my 10 favourites I've worked out that 3 of the 10 almost certainly won't receive a sequel, while it's unlikely that another 3 will.


Game Franchises that almost certainly won't get another
The 3 games that are almost certain not to ...

"The DC Universe was once again featured in the hit title ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’, which pitted heroes and villains against each other in a bizarro world of death and destruction. While Injustice is today listed among the best beat em up titles of recent times, there are plenty of others worth checking out for a new Point of Difference."

Just Dance 2015 is the sixth addition to the popular dancing game series. The game play is pretty much the same where you have to mimic the movements of the onscreen dancers to the best of your ability. Depending on your timing (and optional singing) you'll earn stars for your performance and points to unlock songs and mash-ups to dance to. For each song you complete, you'll acquire a new avatar to use for your profile.

"In the last 20 years, console gaming has evolved into a beast of epic proportions. But even before the introduction of state-of-the-art current gen consoles like Sony’s PS4 and Xbox One, we were kept entertained by some of the best consoles to have come out in the past two decades."

Instead many of us will be locking ourselves into our little gaming caves, and scarring the shit out of ourselves with the best horror games. But while there are many, many great games out there that are worthy of your time, I come to you with a selection of 6 games that I think cover just about every type of horror you could want.

This month's Nintendo Feed podcast is very much a Pokemon themed one as the team look ahead to next month's release, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby. The demo has already landed on our 3DS consoles and there is plenty to ponder over. Stick the podcast on in the background and listen to the discussion!

Portland Retro Gaming Expo was this last weekend and it was well worth the journey. It didn't matter what people were there for, from the arcade games and pinball, Tetris World Championship, to the panels and the vendors there was something for every kind of gamer.
