VGChartz gamrFeed – Do Bridge Titles Have a Future?

I love me some bridge titles, but notoriously these titles are far from AAA releases. That being said, they can still be fun. Disaster: Day of Crisis on the Wii remains one of my favorite games and one of my favorite uses of the Wii Remote, although the king of motion controls in my opinion is still No More Heroes.

VGChartz gamrFeed – Are Developers Missing Something with Motion Controls?

This entry we talk about the oh-so popular motion controllers. You can check it out over on VGChartz’ gamrFeed.

VGChartz gamrFeed – Are Hardcore Kinect Titles Doomed to Be Average?

The E3 press conferences are over. It is generally agreed that Microsoft kind of ended on a sour note, giving us hardcore fans little beyond Gears of War 3, Halo Anniversary and Forza 4 to look forward to this year. But they also had Kinect titles aimed at core audience. Looking at trailers and gameplay demonstrations for each, they gameplay-style in each seemed a little familiar. It reminded me of bridge titles, which the Wii had seen plenty of before. And while these types of titles can definitely be fun, will they ever rise to anything beyond that?
