Video Games With Massive Hype That Everyone Has Forgotten About

These games caught our attention and our interest but in the end they ended being forgotten due to bad gameplay or shitty execution or short story. These are the games that got us taking about them but now these games are only whispered in a dark alley. These are the games that had massive hype but now are forgotten.

The Biggest (And Sometimes Scariest) Video Game Trends Of 2016

2016 was a long year. Longer then most actually, being a leap year with an extra day. Which helped since we needed the extra time catch up with all the happenings that that took place in gaming this Year. Virtual Reality Gains Momentum With both Occulus Rift and HTC (and Valve’s) Vive becoming available to the public in 2016, the stage was clearfor VR to be part of the mainstream. Or at least for gamers with high end PC and budget for what is,effectively, a very expensive display. There was some furor over Occulus underhanded tactics to lock games to platform, and about its privacy policy. Vive was lauded for its more ‘open’ approach. VR still lacked killer apps though – most games seemed to be little more than short tech demos. Playstation VR debuted later in the year di...

Destiny Design Talks About Procedural Generation, Takes A Jab At No Man’s Sky

For those of you who hadn’t noticed yet, Destiny and No Man’s Sky seem to have a lot more in common than just the sci-fi theme and space travel. No Man’s Sky UI design is questionably similar to the one used in Destiny, including the menu items and upgrade tree. In an interview with Metro, Destiny’s Lead Designer Steve Cotton opens up about No Man’s Sky when asked about procedural generation. The UI similarities had obviously gone unnoticed at Bungie, as Cotton humorously implied that No Man’s Sky had copied the UI design from Destiny.  He also gave a more serious take on procedural generation, and why Bungie chooses not to go that route.
