inFamous and Titanfall – Mediocrity overlooked?

Titanfall and inFamous have seen their fair share of praise and critical acclaim but both have glaring faults which have been overlooked. This is of course due to a drought in gaming goodness for the supposed ‘next-gen’ consoles. It’s been a long, cold, dry spell if you’re an Xbox One or PS4 owner. Never in the history of the Playstation or Xbox have I ever been so bored or underwhelmed by the offerings a few months in to their console lives. Have they just capitalized on a severe lack of games for each system or did we actually start believing the hype? Keep Reading…

Europe snubs the Xbox One and Titanfall – Why?

I reported a few weeks ago that the PS4 was crushing the Wii U and Xbox One and that momentum hasn’t ceased. This being despite the release of Titanfall, coupled with widespread official and non official price drops in the continent. Should Microsoft abandon all hope in Europe?
But wait, there’s more!

Ouya outselling Xbox One on Amazon.com

After the sales spike the Xbox seen due to release of Titanfall it seems normal service has been resumed. A list of the Best sellers in videogames shows the Ouya console at number 9 and the Xbox One currently two places behind. The Playstation 4 seems to marginally outselling both, sitting currently at number 7.

Of course, Amazon isn’t the only place to buy consoles from and it’s currently not particularly price competitive with the new consoles. Amazon in the UK had shown that the Xbox One wasn’t selling well at all but when sales figure were released it was the number 1 console for the last 4 weeks.

This news is relevant with gamers questioning the longevity of the sales increase after the mega-hit Titanfall dropped a few weeks ago, I think this has answered that question.

Never cheat on your girlfriend – Boyfriends TV and PS3 ruined

There are many fake videos circulating that depict women smashing their love rat boyfriends belongings but this seems legit. The video is foreign and the story behind it is unclear but one thing is for certain, don’t fu*k with this woman.

 

 

Hell, if someone did this to me it would hurt one million times more than a broken heart. I’d rather someone take my soul than my consoles, poor guy.

Xbox One currently outselling the PS4 globally

News has just come in that the Xbox One has shot straight to the top of the global hardware charts for the first time since it was released.

This follows the news that the Xbox One has been outselling the PS4 for the past 4 weeks in the UK. The above graph shows the Global sales. Th graph below shows the sales for the US alone and coincides with my prediction for the Xbox One to dominate the US in 2014 a few days ago.

Whether or not the current trend will continue is another question but this is great news for Microsoft and the games industry as a whole.

 

Titanfall vs inFamous review scores

This unlikely battle is drawing to a close and it seems that it will be Titanfall which is will be the critics choice according to metacritic. This is a surprising turn of events considering their respective genres, with FPS games usually being underscored and under-appreciated by top gaming critics.

Titanfall currently stands on an average score of 86/100 for the Xbox One and 88/100 for PC. Quite what the PC version had that the One version didn’t I guess we shall never know.

Review scores for inFamous are flooding in and it currently stands on 81/100, not a bad score by any means but not they of score Playstation fans were expecting or hoping for.

Titanfall currently has 57 positive reviews, 2 mixed and 0 negative reviews to its name. inFamous on the other hand has 46 positive, 14 mixed and 0 negative. Titanfall may have won the battle, scoring a massive plus for Xbox One fans but whether or not it can win the war for Microsoft is up in the air.

Are either of the games the system sellers we were told they would be?
