X Box Live Gold – A Rant

The first system I got for the last generation of consoles was the X Box 360. As a result, I’m horribly biased toward it. Sure, it had the RROD issues, okay it didn’t have the best graphics, and it certainly didn’t have the best price, but it was a good middle of the road console that offered some of the best of gaming with the most expansive library, didn’t require for all of its games to be installed prior to play, and didn’t have a funky controller setup.

RPG of the Year – 2011

I was hoping this year would be a little more eventful and tough to pick a top 5, but it really isn’t. Sure, the top 5 are EXCELLENT and there are a few good runner ups, but there are also a lot of terrible MMOs and poorly thought out mobile games. There are 81 games in total, but you probably already know what’s going on the top 5.

But Are Used Games Bad?

An all out war has been declared on used games and I have to wonder…are used games really that bad? Obviously there are negative connotations to buying used over new and clearly you should buy new when you can, but…well, does it even matter? One question you have to continuously ask yourself is how am I benefitting (or robbing) the developer?

RPG of the Year – 2010

Same rules apply. I’ve cross referenced and double checked all the games on this list to confirm where and when they came out. North American release dates only and if I was unable to play the game, then I can’t count it. Again, I apologize if your favorite game didn’t make the top 5 and it could be because of what I just explained, but there are 43 games this year, so let’s hop to it!

Sonic the Hedgehog – Is It Too Late?

Growing up, I owned an NES. While the Sega Genesis was a marvelous thing, I still loved my NES. Every so often, we would be treated to renting a Genesis and a few games. My good friend across the street also owned a Genesis. Until I got into emulation, this was the extent of my Genesis knowledge. Sure, I got to play a few things like the oldschool Sonic titles, Golden Axe 2, and even Phantasy Star 4, but for the most part I really missed out when the Genesis was still ongoing.
