There was much ado about Resident Evil 4 being a departure from the pre-rendered escapades of the PS1 affectations and Code Veronica. However, Solid Snake 4Life would be quick to tell you that Resident Evil remained unscathed from the fallout as it manages to be a really good action game with a neat enough standalone plot for newbies to sink their teeth into, as well as some cool set pieces, action sequences and satisfying shootouts with al...
"The Nintendo Wii was the top selling console when pitted against its more powerful brethren the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 around its release eight years ago. When it comes to its successor the Wii U though, oh how the tables have turned… The Wii U is still playing catch-up (to put it nicely) to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s not everyone’s favorite gaming console and it may not have the best AAA titles, but it is still a Nintendo!"
"Bring back experience points and you have your answer to poor pacing. Replace items with the blessed tune of the series’ classic level-up system and you can avoid the dull fetch quests that took up so much of players’ precious time finding health in Sticker Star. Dramatically decrease enemies’ attack range and you can open up the world for exploration again too. For whatever items you do find, throw in Thousand Year Door’s culinary crafting system to give more bang for your buck.
"The PlayStation 4 is a testament to Sony’s excellence in console gaming. A tradition that dates back to the mid 90’s when Sony released the aptly-named PlayStation, its debut console to compete with the Nintendo 64 and Sega Saturn. But as Sony’s fourth generation console hit the market, even Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 owners abandoned ship, and are now putting their faith in the PlayStation 4. The question is, why? Is it the price point? Is it the exclusive titles? Is it because the PS4 is THE..."
"If you own the Disney Infinity Starter Pack for the Wii, you can now download the game for the Wii U exclusively through the console's eShop, free of charge.
"Disney Infinity launched one year ago, and in that time the number of Wii U players has significantly expanded," Vice President and General Manager of developer Avalanche Software John Blackburn said in a press release. "Given our commitment to compatibility for our players, we wanted existing Wii owners to be able to experience the ..."
"A third of PS4 owners are actually converted fanboys. They gave up their Xbox 360s, abandoned their Wiis and I might even imagine a few members of the Glorious PC Master Race may have traded their SLI GPUs and multi-monitor setups to get a taste of the black and blue brand from Sony. Of course, that’s according to a new report from a Nielson Media Research survey."
"The controversy surrounding region-locking video games is a complex one, and one that’s never helped consumer choice. I’m against it. I’d doubt any players are for it, and most tolerate it, and certainly no one saying it’s fair. At the same time, Nintendo’s reasons for locking down their own systems–and for quite a long time, mind you–may be no less valid."
This is a brand new trailer released by EA Sports focusing solely on how goalkeepers have been improved overall in FIFA 15. Goalkeepers now read and react to the game a lot better than in previous titles and are able to pull off astounding reflex saves. The computer AI has been improved and keepers will now decide whether to stick to their goal mouth or rush out and sweep the ball away.
Realism is what we want and that is exactly what EA Sports are trying to give us. There are new ways t...

Two women who certainly pack a punch or two between them but who would win in a fight to the end?
Sheik is Princess Zelda's alter ego and has mastered the arts of stealth. She uses Deku Nuts to help her vanish in the blink of an eye. Sheik carries a weapon known as a tanto on her back and can unsheathe it at any point to engage in a duel.
Even without the iconic power suit, Samus Aran has a far more modern approach to her appearance and combat. Her skin tight suit allows her to move q...
Two phenomenal warriors lock horns in battle but who do you back to be the last man standing? Darth Vader of course has his lightsaber ready to wield and he also has a great understanding of the force and can use it to cripple his opponents. His weaknesses lie underneath that mask of his. Should it be removed during the battle, he would struggle greatly and well...without his robotic arms and legs his mobility isn't that great.
Master Chief doesn't have a lightsaber handy but does have an...
"The Wii version of Skylanders Trap Team will include a download code for the Wii U version, effectively creating a cross-buy benefit for the toys-to-life game coming soon from Activision.
Skylanders' official Twitter feed pointed out the bonus on Wednesday, meaning that those who buy the game on Wii won't have to buy a new set (at $75) if they upgrade to Wii U. Those who have both consoles may wish to consider this even if the Wii U will be the primary option."

They games can be had for next to nothing these days and are well worth it

Strong rumours in recent weeks suggest that Nintendo are to announce a huge new Zelda Wii U title and with the franchise being so important to Zelda Williams, you'd think that she will be involved with that pre...
