I sink hours of my time into them, so I can say with a degree of authority: modern games are complete and utter manure.
Because they're never finished.
In the race to get them out the door, and thanks in total to broadband connections, they are buggy and full of holes.
You never get a complete game for the huge sum of money you're expected to pay for them.
Case in point: Borderlands 2.
I've just encountered a bug that renders a mission impossible to complete (The "Get to know Jack" mission), meaning I won't be able to fully complete the game ..not that I could anyway, because the game I own isn't actually finished.
When was the last time any of us bought a title that didn't contain huge chunks missing, held back for the sake of DLC?
Well, I didn't buy any for Borderlands (so I've no idea who the f**k Moxxi is or why I should give

Controversy is once again brewing among fans of diminutive cartoon horses. It seems like a weekly ritual, this constant ebb and flow of panic and relief, unchecked caps-lock accompanied hyperbole and the arrogant dismissal of the concerns of an understandably protective fanbase. This time, though, the fear, worry, anger, and resentment are ratcheted up to 11 as folks worry for the future of the show as well as its most popular character. It all comes down to one question- is Twilight Sparkle- the adorkably awkward student of Princess Celestia about to ascend to Princesshood…uh, Princessdom? Princessity?
Is Twilight Sparkle going to turn into a princess permanently? And more to the point, what does this signify for the future of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Let me start by saying this- I’m not worried for two reasons. First, read the above sentence again. “Is Twilight Sparkle going to turn into a princess perm
Mario Bros Event & my Lost of Hope in HumanityTime to write another story for you wonderful people to read. I think its safe to write this journal up now, I wanna share a story that happened like 2 and a half years ago, but back then I didn't wanna share it because I knew some friends may read it and think I am talking about them, well I AM talking about them but I strongly believe they don't read my journals anymore so they can just suck it. But still I ain't gonna reveal any names just in case. OK So what is this Mario Brothers Event & my Lost of Hope in Humanity story? It all began one day when.....Mario Bros Event & my Lost of Hope in Humanity2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the newspaper there was a little ad with a riddle that points to a location on a certain date, if you get to that location on that date at the right time and find the 'Golden Coin' you will get a New Super Mario Brothers Wii game for free or receive a $50 in cash, however only the first 50 people who turns up gets it. Pretty much its a publicity stunt to gain more attention to the release of the New Super Mario Brothers Wii. The
Hardcore MEH over Wii-U?As I've said before, one of the things I was looking forward to seeing this E3 was how so-called "hardcore" fanboys will find even more ridiculous ways to dismiss anything Nintendo showcases because they're "too mature" to enjoy something all-age friendly.Hardcore MEH over Wii-U?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Finally Nintendo comes right out and gives pretty much every hardcore gamer exactly what they want, and in return all they get is snarky blog posts, dismissive attitudes, and cries of "foul" if anything casual shows up on the screen. Am I the only one noticing this?
First, hardcore gamers seem to be completely blind when it comes to titles that interest them, instead choosing to bitch and moan about casual games that aren't for their demographic. Listen up, geniuses, if the Kinect and Move haven't opened your eyes up yet, casual gaming is now a viable market whether you like it or not. It's OK to have more than one demographic represented, especially when it's advertising for a brand new console.
Second, the one thing hardcore gamers
Play Station 4? Uhh.....yeah, so?******DISCLAIMER: The following journal is just to share my own opinion, not looking to offend anybody or making fun of what people likes.

As you ALL know by now, the "most awaited" Play Station 4 is coming, if you still didn't know, you can check Youtube. Yep, Sony looks so proud with it, probably many die hard Play Station fans screamed, other probably cried. Me? Well.......sorry Sony, but not all the people have orgasms with this stuff.
You know, the world of video games is really evolving, I can tell, after all I am an old school gamer, and many people from my generation probably share the same thoughts. But what do I mean with "evolving" nowadays, Better graphics? High Definition? Better sound effects? Better Music? Better ways to play online and connect the entire world?..............NO. Let me tell you why:
Atari in 1977 was simply the whole monopoly in home videogames, if you had an idea for a vid
Is the Console War Over Before It Began?At the risk of perpetuating the stereotype of being a blatant Nintendo fanboy, I have to say that out of the 3 console systems coming out, it's only Nintendo's which actually seems to have a sort of purpose to it. Let me try to explain..Is the Console War Over Before It Began?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The latest details for the Xbox One show that pretty much every aspect of gaming culture that we hate has been incorporated into it. Needing to check in every 24 hours to make sure you've legally bought a game? Check. Not able to bring games over to a friend's house unless your friend ALSO buys the game? Check. Forcing game stores to sign an agreement to pay Microsoft a large percentage of the used sale fee? Check. More motion controls? Check. Inability to let independent-developers make games on their system? Check. Not backwards compatible? Check. Stronger emphasis on watching TV and movies than playing games? Check. Seriously, this is like a check list of all the worse possible things to include in a gaming console.
By that account, the PS4 is doing

My friend Lauren over at the Daily Dot recently posted a rather interesting article considering the various signs of a dwindling fandom, and whether the G4-based My Little Pony community is burning out at the same breakneck pace of which it initially flared to life.
On one hand, the article is a more than a little tongue-in-cheek and clearly meant to ruffle the horsefeathers of a community that has proven exceptionally good at being ruffled over the past several months. Controversy, reactionary rants and drama wars forged in the fire of hurt feelings, damaged reputations, and public vitriol have been the norm lately. Far more of the negative than the unofficial (though overused to the point of cliché) motto of “love and tolerance.”
