Going into this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, the biggest question looming over my head was whether or not we will be seeing the dawn of a new generation of consoles. After trudging through five press conferences, the answer I received could be summed up with an ambiguous “…eh, not yet, but we’re getting there.” Truthfully, [...]
If the rumors are true, then a grim future for gaming is on the horizon.
Today, we at Toy-TMA bid farewell to the fond memories of 2011 and look forward to a whole new year on the horizon. 2012, Year of Democratic elections, Disaster predictions, and the Dragon (gotta love the dragon). Will the year be dramatically dangerous, or disappointingly dismal? I don’t know. But in the mean time, it [...]
Was it a good year for the Xbox 360? Sure, why not? There might not have been many exclusive titles but there was plenty to play if you had the means and the money. I did not.
Last week, this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo came and went, and with it launched an arsenal of gaming news and previews to show us just how busy our holiday season will be this year (very VERY busy). There is a lot to talk about, so that’s why I’m here to sort through it all; to [...]
Why haven’t I Thought Deep for a while? I’m not really sure. I might as well fix that by diving into a topic I’ve mentioned before: Fanboyism (or Fangirlism, but it’s easier to write “fanboy,” so just replace the gender pronouns to enjoy the article more if that’d otherwise be a deal-breaker). What makes someone [...]
This November, Game Informer Magazine released a cover story for their 212th issue that resulted in both positive and negative reception. It was a story that took 30 video game characters created over the last decade, and declared them as the ones who defined the video game community with the leaps and bounds we have [...]
Sony and Nintendo already had their moment in the spotlight; now it’s Microsoft’s turn to step forward and accept their yearly judgment. A lot, and I mean a LOT of great games were released for the Xbox 360 this year, but so was a lot of crap. Want to know what we thought was good [...]
Microsoft’s big new motion controller apparatus was officially released last week, showing the world what a non-controller could look like. A handful of games have come out for it (notice that I’ve reviewed none of them) and huge changes occurred to the Xbox as a whole. But what does Kinect really mean for us? What [...]
I’m in sort of a corner here. I wasn’t shy to the concept of writing slander about Fable II no more than a few weeks ago, mostly because I played it to completion. Fable III, however, is a game that I’m told is roughly identical to its predecessor, though things have been simplified even further [...]
