REVIEWS Disney Infinity 3.0 Review
Disney Infinity 3.0 offers the first real taste of new Star Wars gaming content since the franchise was purchased by the Disney Corporation. This begs the question: Is it Han Sololicious? Or Jar Jar Bombad?

Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

E3: PC or rather about the lack of it
Posted on Saturday, June 15 2013 @ 10:55:09 PST

This member blog post was promoted to the GameRevolution homepage.


E3 2013 has been very silent for me. There's tons of media, but most of it buzzes past my ears without them catching the important keyword that my ears are fine tuned to receive: "PC" or "Personal Computer". Microsoft, Sony, EA and Ubisoft have all shown their cards and none of those cards have anything for my platform of choice.

I say (or sing) "Hey! What's going on?". Where's the    ... Excuse me, i meant to say P . What the... What I want to say is that where is the Personal Co       ... **** it.

The answer is actually very simple: Sony and Microsoft have both banned the         from E3 for a very simple reason. They want to advertise their new consoles. They probably hope that by announcing all the new entertainment products for their consoles (even if a ton of them are coming to other platforms) they can increase their sales. Likely the pre-orders will flare up for Xbox One and Playstation 4 because gamers want to play their beloved games and they want to be sure they can play them, so it makes sense to get the platform for the games they want as soon as possible.

Probably a couple of months later when E3 buzz has died down, they make announcements for other "less desirable" platforms such as         or Wii U. Or heck, even PS3 and Xbox 360.

Meanwhile, I'm one sad Personal Co-... Personal... Calculator? gamer.
