ZTGD | LEGO The Hobbit Review

Ken McKown writes: Like it or not, the LEGO games have a legacy. They are like the Dynasty Warriors series for kids. They dont vary much from iteration to iteration, yet still sell like hotcakes, and their fans eat them up. TT Games and Warner Bros. are continuing their adventures in Middle Earth with LEGO The Hobbit, and much like its predecessors, it brings a few new items along with a lot of familiarity.

What Does It Take For a Game to 'Cross Over'?

Hardcore Gamer: The near infinite number of subgenres in the gaming world has allowed niches to be created and filled. Beneath the obscurity and limited identities, getting a video game to cater to a wider audience involves a number of tactics, many of which rely on accessibility and apparent gratification. There are so many things that a developer can do wrong to make a game unappealing to a mainstream audience, so many things that have since resulted in new niches appearing down the line. Due to so many subgenres, different categories of games are becoming isolated from each other. A great JRPG…

The Real Super Meat Boy Starts Here | Fenix Rage Preview, Games Abyss

Andreas Asimakis writes, "Fenix Rage, a 2D platform game which combines Super Meat Boy, Flappy Bird and Sonic the Hedgehog into one aggravatingly addictive experience, made its debut at PAX East 2014. Judging by its influences, Fenix Rage is putting itself alongside some pretty heavy hitters. Developer Green Lava Studios (based out of the beautiful Costa Rica) certainly has its work cut out for itself if it hopes to distinguish itself from hundreds of indie platformers. Fortunately for them, Fenix Rage was all it was promised to be and more."

The Witcher 3 fps can be "anything on PC"

GR-UK writes: "During a recent Q&A, CD Projekt Red's lead engine programmer, Balázs Török, offered us some insight into the technical workings of their hugely anticipated RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. "Right now we are aiming at having 30 fps on the consoles," Török said when asked what kind of framerates console gamers could expect. "What we want to have is really a beautiful world. This game is more about immersing yourself in the world, and not about having the quick combat... This is an RPG and not a fighting game, to put it in simple terms."
