How I learned to stop worrying and love Digital Distribution.

3d ago ... A lot of negative things have been said about Digital Distribution, and I happen to agree with most of them. Many say that it represents an erosion of consumer rights. You cannot re-sell your digital games. You cannot lend them to another (well, not easily and not without significant risk). If the platform you bought your games on suddenly disappears, so does your right to access them (more tha...

Why Konami needs to leave.

4d ago ... As of right now Konami's upcoming Silent Hill game being made with the combined efforts of Hideo Kojima & Guilermo Del Toro is cancelled, this news shows a very clear sign that Konami no longer has any business in the games industry and needs to pack up it's things and leave. This isn't a rant made by an upset fanboy raging at the company for cancelling a game he wasn't looking forward to, t...

The Right Targets

5d ago ... Video games cause violence. We have so many individual cases of people who play video games that have committed acts of violence so there must be some undeniable connection there. There are probably a lot of viewers of this piece, if not all, that have a thing or two to say about that kind of sentiment that was at one time bandied about in official US congressional hearings; in fact, perhaps...

Why I no Longer Finish Games

7d ago ... Just 10% of those who play games actually finish them. This has always been a rather curious and somewhat unbelievable statistic for me over the years. Games are quite expensive as a piece of entertainment and so I’ve always found it a bit strange that people would walk away from such a significant investment of time and money. I mean, after investing $60 and a couple hours on a game, why walk...

Paying For Mods: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

8d ago ... The latest controversy in the gaming world is that Valve has started a program whereby mod creators can charge gamers for the mods they create and distribute via Steam. (Question: Would this apply to mods distributed through other services such as Nexus?) Here's the full details that Valve has provided about the program. http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/aboutpaidcontent (The site loaded...

Halo Reach: Fall of a World

8d ago ... I’ve played through the Halo 3 campaign more times than I can count. First, there was the initial solo play-through. Then, it was straight to Legendary co-op. After that came the ‘LASO’ attempts, the achievement collection runs and the painstaking endurance test represented by the infamous ‘Vidmaster Challenge’. And yet, even after all of my jaunts down the Tsavo Highway or fights to stem th...

Where Are My Project Cars Racing Game Fans?

11d ago ... I'm a serious racing game fan and I can’t think of anything more exciting right now then Project Cars. I mean wow it’s not just looking good, it sounds really good. No, not the sound of the cars, (that sounds good too) but No, I mean the features in the game sound amazing, almost too good to be true. So you know nothing about this game, then let me ask you something, does that rock you mu...

Mortal Kombat X PC Port - Badly Optimized

12d ago ... Now as I got my hand on the most waited game, but believe me, the same way it given me excitement has also pissed away my mood. No doubt it is one my favorite games of all time with all the new character like Erron Black, new ailities, arenas and game play has driven me crazy. I just can’t put my controller down as there is always a new experience. But one thing that has sort of taken 30% of my...

Gaming websites and the online community

12d ago ... Once upon a time gaming journalism was about informing their readers about games and what goes on in the gaming world. When you bought a magazine and looked at the articles you where provided with information and it felt that the writers genuinely liked games and enjoyed them. Over the years things changed and gaming journalism became gaming "journalism". Gone are the times when it was importan...

Tone Deaf: The difference between MKX and it's predecessor

13d ago ... It's been about a week since the launch of MKX, the newest entry in the Mortal Kombat franchise and technically the tenth, and reception seems pretty positive. Sure the micro transactions blow and the season pass is questionable but the roster is great and the gameplay seems to hold up. However, there's definitely been some rumblings that while good, MKX isn't as good as it's predecessor, MK9....

Does Battlefront Really give Sony the edge over Xbox this holiday?

15d ago ... In Case you haven't heard, Sony has obtained the marketing rights for the newest iteration of Star Wars Battlefront. The game is set to release November 17 and will likely be a huge title for the holidays. This has led some to make claims such as the following (in fact, is one of the hottest articles as of today): "The biggest bit of news from today’s trailer may be that Sony has nailed the...

The 7th Generation: A Post-mortem (Part 2)

18d ago ... For me, the 6th generation was characterized by a massive variation and innovation of software in a short time, while the 7th generation is the complete opposite. The 7th gen defined regression in almost every genre, and did so over the course of 8 years. Some were hit harder than others, but I can’t think of many genres that truly improved over this time. Let us all take a moment to remember t...

Games that Deserve Their Own Movies

20d ago ... Movies based on video games have a poor track record these days. The movie industry doesn’t always care to produce quality movies based around some of our favorite games. Though, we gamers always seem to want to see our favorite video games turned into a movie. But why make them if Hollywood always ruins them? Of course, there is always a possibility could turn out very bad, but I’ll take those...

Opinion: How Splatoon should do voice chat.

20d ago ... We've all experienced this before in public shooter matches; you're doing your own thing when suddenly someone pops into the match you're in, and this person either has a foul mouth you'd rather not listen to, or has a lot of distracting background noise going on. So now, you have to spend precious seconds, in a match with a time limit, either delaying a respawn or finding a safe place to hi...

The Problem With Being In The Lead

21d ago ... Every new generation is a clean slate for all the companies that make the consoles we love. What happens the generation before never matters once that generation ends, and we've seen it happen time and again. There is one constant though, one thing that has never changed, and that's the arrogance that being the "winner" brings. That arrogance may shift to the next console, or it may exist withi...

Life & Death in Los Santos

25d ago ... There has never been a hero within a Grand Theft Auto story. Tommy Vercetti, Claude, Carl Johnson, Niko Bellic…all of them, by definition, were anti-heroes, people who sought a fair, just end via way of unfair, unjust actions. And in keeping with the calculated brutality of their methods, as well as a desire for peace beyond the crystalline snowstorms and the bloody resolutions was inherent...

It's Bubble Day!

26d ago ... (Actually, there is a "world bubble day" and today isn't it. Shhh...) Comment on this blog (once) and I will give you a bubble! Why? - I'm leaving! ( http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/cat/532341 ) Consider this precious bubble a farewell gift? - We plan on getting rid of bubbles in an update (new comment system) - ...but that update isn't ready, and aren't we all tired of waiting...

Halo Fantasy Cast!

27d ago ... So I'm new to this site and I'm all about debating and hypothetical questions so I thought id start with a "What if?" here and see what other peoples thoughts are... HALO...Let's be honest here...the movie needs to happen. People want it. Give it to us already! Stop the delays! But anyways, I thought I'd make my own little dream cast for the film but I'm totally serious about and think these...

The 7th Generation: A Post-mortem (Part 1)

27d ago ... Technically the 7th gen hasn't actually ended yet, but all three consoles have basically experienced their heyday and the defining games have all been released. The 7th gen was overlong and divisive, but it certainly had its moments. In the first part I will be covering the life and lasting impressions all three consoles left. In the second part I will discuss the direction software makers went...
