Kingdom Hearts III Gameplay Trailer!

Years ago – throughout my entire childhood and right up until about the year 2001 – I only ever owned Nintendo game consoles.  I was a fanboy.  Even typing the word now, N-I-N-T-E-N-D-O, makes me feel happy.  Okay, fine.  I had an Atari 2600 and a Commodore 64…  But after that, it was just the NES, Gameboy, SNES, N64, GBA and GameCube.  I never liked Sega.  I thought the PlayStation was nothing more than flashy graphics with no real substance (Though, I did get the PC version of Final Fantasy VII).  And when MicroSoft launched a gaming console?  Xbox?!  What is that?!  Hah!  I scoffed.

But, eventually, Square published two games that changed my mind; and one of them is getting another installment I actually care about soon… Continue reading

Xbox One vs. PS4 – Side by Side


The debate has raged since Microsoft first announced the Xbox One a couple of weeks ago.  Objectively, I think that, though many of us here at The MediaFile are professed Xbox fanboys, there are legitimate arguments on both sides of this console war.

Fortunately for us, deviantART user yamamoto114 compiled a side by side comparison.

It’s a pretty long list, so check it out after the cut!

Xbox One Controller: If it aint broke, don’t fix it!

If Micro$oft is handling even one part of the Xbox One correctly, it may just be the controller.

Xbox has a good history with controllers.  They had a misstep with the original Xbox controller – the one my friends and I jokingly referred to as ‘The Hamburger’ due to its shape and girth.  They quickly repaired that by issuing the Controller S, which moved around some of the buttons and greatly decreased the size.

The Xbox 360 controller was nearly identical to the S, but it’s wireless and they moved the buttons around again, just a little bit.

And now, we have the Xbox One
