Feature: Evolution of Console Parity

While it rarely makes much of a difference what console you play a game on, there is always a question in the back of many people’s minds concerning which version is technically superior.  Console parity is something that developers have sought after since multi-console releases first hit the mainstream.  Back in the day it was quite obvious which console had the most potential…

Feature: Multi release games… who is truly to blame?

Many things, both good and bad, have been set into motion this generation of consoles.  One thing that we seem to be seeing more and more of is the re-release of games that should not need to be put out more than once.  Now I’m not talking about HD remakes of classic PS2 games nor the digital sale of some of the older generation’s gems, as this is actually a good thing…

Feature: The Online Pass Strikes Again!

Feature: The Online Pass Strikes Again!

A while back I wrote an article giving my thoughts about the online pass and how developers are going about getting more money the wrong way.  For those who don’t know, the Online Pass is a one time code that comes with a game to allow access to online play.  This of course was to counter used game sales and even turn a profit from them by allowing players to purchase a new code via LIVE market or the PSN store.

Feature: Game Evolution and Software Comparison

Recently we have found ourselves presented with something that we have never seen before when comparing software versions of RAGE, and it doesn’t seem that this will be the only game that follows this path. We here at LoT have always followed an “out of the box” policy to ensure the best and most accurate comparison of software between two versions of the same game. In the past ..

Feature: PlayStation Game Case Evolution

PlayStation cases have gone through many changes early in the system’s life. The transition to the common jewel case has a strange history. There were 3 different cases before the standard CD size jewel. For me as a gamer turned collector, the hunt for some of these variations has been sort of a pain.

Feature: Are Mascots Dead?

Video Game Mascots were really big in the early life of gaming. Mario is the Poster Boy for Nintendo like Mickey Mouse is for Disney. It seemed like every company had to have a mascot in the 80′s and 90′s but today, they seem to be lost.

Feature: What is, “Mobile Light Force?”

Feature: What is, “Mobile Light Force?”

There is a very oddly titled game series out there. It started out as “Mobile Light Force” and came out on PlayStation. It’s sequel, “Mobile Light Force 2″ came out for PS2. What is the game? Well you often hear, “Never judge a book by its cover,” but this is a Video Game. If you see 3 women wearing leather, shooting guns with robots flying around in a destroyed city, of course means its a game with a Blond Dude wearing a Jet-Pack, a Witch on a broomstick, and an old white bearded gay man in a foot peddle powered helicopter….

Feature: The 5 Console Games that helped Kill the American Arcade Industry

Now before you look at the title and get all bent out of shape, we know, Arcades are still around, and that’s true, but they certainly aren’t what they use to be, especially in America. Case in point; Street Fighter 4 & MvsC3 – Arcade Cabinets for both are not even available for purchase in the United States. That info speaks volumes about where the industry has gone these past 10 years.
