Watch Dogs has been on most of our lists ever since its surprise unveil at last years E3. It is still impressing us to this day with this new trailer above, enjoy! Watch Dogs is releasing on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on November 19, 2013 in North America and November 22, 2013 in Europe.
Okay, first of all I would like to apologize for the guest speaker himself! Unfortunately, due to unforeseen events (which I’m sure you can understand we’re out of my control), Tony Mott couldn’t make the lecture, he was replaced by the next best thing:
The Features Editor, Jason Killingsworth.
With the bad news out the way (although that’s a little disrespectful!), both questions got answered, so lets dig in.
Following price cuts in recent weeks from UK grocery store ASDA (parent: Walmart) and Shop.To, Amazon has followed suit cutting the Wii U’s price by £50; which is about $75. The console now sells below the £200 price mark.
For those who aren’t strong with the exchange rates, £200 in the UK is the US’ killer $300 mark.
But is this a sign for things to come for the rest of the world? It’s well documented Nintendo’s 8th generation console is struggling.

In this video, DLB and his guest, Kyle “US_ARMY”, discuss what they think will happen next… next generation, even if consoles will even exist after next-generation, will the console companies move to service companies like OnLive? See what the guys think in their latest video.
In the latest Nintendo Direct video, Iwata has a lot of interesting information regarding the future of Wii U, including many updates and future plans for the console along with the announcements of several games too, and much more. This is definitely a good watch, check it out.

Sony’s recent history has not been the best, from issuing broken promises, to not being able to deliver on basic features the Playstation Nation is starving for.
Some people that would normally not even second guess buying the next-gen system coming from Sony are now not sure what they will do, or they are finally looking at giving the next-gen console coming from Microsoft a fair shake.
It is very safe to say that Sony has taken its Playstation Nation on a roller coaster ride this generation from the console launching at $499, launch games not meeting the expectation of gamers from what was showin to them at E3 before the console launched, PSN being down for a month, to losing top exclusives.
This years E3 will be the most important E3 in the history of the Playstation brand.
Hello fellow gamers, today I talk about the evolution of the video game controller. The controller has been a substantial part of the video game industry. From a joystick and one button, to a joypad and two buttons, and the list goes on and on.
1) Sleek design
2) No new buttons except for existing ones
3) Do not add new buttons/Touchscreen to make it even harder for people to play
4) Rechargeable battery installed/Charge wire being proprietary to every system
There was an article I read yesterday that stated Sony was really looking to end playing used games on their consoles. As a Gamefly member, this really concerned me. Although most of the games that I buy are brand-new, there are a few games that I just want to try out. These games more than likely end up being traded at stores like a GameStop. So now with them heavily moving in the direction of a non-used game market, I really think that most gamers are going to second-guess spending their money on games that they are unsure about. Not to mention sometimes we want to subsidize the cost of a new game by trading in a old game, this also makes me wonder for us gamers spending $300 or $400 a year on games. We might start to see big cut backs due to the fact that we have to make careful decisions on the games to play. So, I now think about it where multiple developers in the past had the ability to earn my hard earned cash now being very selective and they will indeed have to work very hard on their titles. Not only that, but buying my games on traditional hard disk media more than likely will start to fade into the past, because if cannot resell these same titles or I cannot give them to a friend I might as well have the convenience of having them preloaded on my system. Not to mention that Sony and multiple developers are trying to release the digital version of the games at midnight when the physical version of the game also releases.
Just a thought..
From the early days of me playing Super Mario Brothers on my original Nintendo. I never truly needed to have another player plugged into the P2 socket in order for me to enjoy myself. Even with my older brothers and sister forcing me to play games that allowed for us all to play side by side. The need for them to actually be there playing with me never really existed. Fast forward a bit to the days of the N64 and beyond. I have started to notice that having another person there playing a karting, racing, or fighting game made things all the better. And now with current generation gaming consoles it is almost a need to be connected, linked, or in a some sort of a “Party” for fun to really exist. Not that I have a problem with it at all, I am just stating how things have changed. Now I find myself asking my friends “what console are you buying that game on?”. So that we can all enjoy the fun together. And with the introduction of Microsoft’s Kinect and Sony’s Move controller. Playing with friends has taken another large twist in terms of gaming. Not even mentioning what Nintendo was able to do with the original Wii. All of this really has me thinking what more in store do these companies have in store for us gamers. The more I think about it the more and more I become eager for the next generation of gaming to begin and to further evolve the way we game today.
