Developers, Stop Playing it Safe With Franchises & Use The “3 Game Rule”

Developers, Stop Playing it Safe With Franchises & Use The “3 Game Rule”

Many gamers hate it, the milking of a gaming franchise, especially if it’s their favorite franchises. Many developers, especially this generation are making sequel after sequel now, usually without any noticeable innovation, or just too many games year after year. Notice that many games are hitting title number 2 or title number 3 now, and as we’ve seen from many games (Grand Theft Auto, Final Fantasy), sequels aren’t bad under certain instances, but some developers just have to know when to call it quits. It’s simple, make three games in a franchise, then stop all development of that entire franchise, sounds like a daring move? It’s gonna be better for everyone in the long-run though, here’s why.

Call of Duty Is Finally Dying, True Gamers Taking The Stage Again

 If it’s one thing I absolutely hate about this generation of gaming, it’s the clear obsession to the Call of Duty franchise, blocking many gamers from actually taking any other viable games/franchises seriously and destroying everyone’s individual interest in a large variety of game genres now (something that was well valued last generation in gaming) Now it’s all about the first person shooter, and I’m so damn happy to see this horrible industry obsession going away, Call of Duty is finally dying!

Dropbox Support Quietly Added to PS3 in Latest Update

You may have seen the update notes for the latest PS3 update v4.10, which includes a seriously nice, new Internet Browser performance update, but what you may have not heard is that the Dropbox Website now works with your PlayStation 3 as a result of the Internet Browser revamp!

That’s right, now you are able to download virtually any media file directly from your Dropbox account onto your PlayStation 3 now, no more pesky USB drives, or memory sticks needed! The PS3 does have some freezing issues though, when trying to upload a file to the Dropbox.

You can use this for music, movies, and some other things also, heck, maybe the Vita will also have this type of support for Dropbox too!
