Gaming Under Relative Adversity

23h ago ... The holidays are a time to spend with you loved ones, the ones nearest and dearest to your heart – PS4, XB1, 3DS, PC etc – whatever your poison. Every year, I have grand designs to use my little free time to put in some serious gaming, particularly of the RPG variety. However, year after year, I have my quality time invaded upon by; you guessed it – my relatives. No, I don’t care about what yo...

A Very Dreamcasty Christmas

4d ago ... I’m sure that we all have great memories from past holidays. For me, personally, my best gaming Christmas memory goes back to 1999. This was the year that I got a Dreamcast. I know a lot of people are tired of hearing about how awesome the Dreamcast was, but the fact remains that it was a joy to own. For those who never owned a Sega console, it represented a slightly different experience from t...

Personal Identity And Gaming

5d ago ... This blog is one that asks you a simple question. When playing games, do you identify yourself as the character you play, or do you simply take on the role of the character you are playing with all of their own unique traits and characteristics? To understand more of what I'm talking about, it would do you some good to watch these 2 videos that reference a study that states that most gamers...

Return of JRPGs:Xensosaga, Dark Cloud, Shadow Hearts, Suikoden

5d ago ... This blog will look at how it really IS possible to revive extinct video game series, so long as there is a will on part of the gamers. Shadow Hearts is a video game series which ended in 2006 due to the publisher who owns the Shadow Hearts Intellectual Property going bankrupt. Dark Cloud and Suikoden are other series which have virtually become extinct as the publishers have shown no interest...

Remasters: You're Doing it Wrong

7d ago ... This generation, we're getting more than a handful of remasters. No really, as thin as game cases are these days, you probably wouldn't be able to hold them all in one hand comfortably, gamers with original XBOX Duke controller hands withstanding. Anyway, we've been getting a lot of them these days and it's gone from mild to shamefully shameless. Granted, the lot of them have been remasters...

My New Year's Gaming Resolutions

8d ago ... Another year has gone by which means that it’s time for some non-sober reflection on the past year(s). This reflection usually births some sort of determination to change things and to do better in the coming year. So this year, from a gaming standpoint, I want to share some of these resolutions. Can people really change? Probably not, but it’s good to dream. Fear of Commitment I still ha...

Brendan's Blog: Salty Esports

8d ago ... We all saw the Twitter feud between Leffen and Chillindude that started with the discussion of who should be considered "Smash Gods". We also saw Westballz and Hax go at it too. All this salt and BM (bad manners) are a major part of eSports, but what does it do to the reputation of the community? In my opinion, I love seeing BM in eSports because it brings in drama and drama brings in viewer...

Oversensitivity and Social Statements

8d ago ... Okay, so I've been lurking and commenting on N4G for a relatively long period of time now. This is my first blog post, and it's something I've really want to talk about. This has turned out a little longer than I thought, so please bear with me. To begin, I'll assume you've most likely heard about those feminists that constantly criticizing gaming for selective and petty reasons. Who demand...

Uncharted 4 Visual Downgrade- Deal with it

9d ago ... Give credit where credit is due. That has always been my mantra and sometimes it seems at odds with the core gaming community and the landscape in which it resides in, where sometimes, you feel like you are expected to pick a 'side' and stick to whatever default narrative that side has made part of its rhetoric in the virtual war against competing platforms. I like to think that I am somewhere...

RANT: PS4/Xbone Fight Fans are Getting Screwed

12d ago ... Warning:First Thing's First, English is not my first language so don't expect amazing grammar and spelling here. Yes, as the tittle says, PS4,Xbox one Fight Game Fans are getting Screwed and bad! I love Fighting games but anyone that is serious serious about them know that using a Fighstick is the main way of playing them but there are a couple of problems with this on these PS4/Xbox one...

Comparing the first year of the 4 PlayStations

14d ago ... For this blog I'm going to be looking at the first year of all 4 PlayStation home consoles after they were launched in the USA, comparing their launch titles as well as their first year games. If I missed any USA first year titles, please let me know in the comments below. I'm trying to be as comprehensive as possible. I'm writing this blog mostly to remind myself why I have stuck with Sony...

FF7 style JRPGs for PlayStation 4 probably incoming from Square Enix

15d ago ... Final Fantasy 7 for Playstation 4 announced at 2014 Playstion Experience, probably a good indicator that Square Enix is making/going to release/planned JRPGs that looks, plays similar to Final Fantasy 7. Final Fantasy 7 for Playstation 4 is just the game that sets the journey. "So, as for the AAA titles we’re currently developing for series, we basically want to go back to their roots and...

PS4 doomed to have only few games? (1 year on)

15d ago ... [Update: This post had a mistake which said PS4 had about 40 disk based games after 1 year, but it had 77. It also said PS2 had about 75 disk based games but it had more than 136] 1 year ago I posted this article: http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/ranma1/524461 I feel so far its proven to be accurate. At the time I wrote the piece, the original PlaySta...

Would you play Browser Games?

15d ago ... In recent years, with the development of web technology, type of game has been varied again. There are quite a lot of browser games online, such as Shifu, Nightfalls, Dragon Atlas and Dawn of King. Instead of having to download the application or client of game, we merely need to open a web browser and install a plug-in maybe and then we can start playing straight away. Indeed, compared to m...

Do You Even Third-Party Exclusive, Bro?

15d ago ... So with some of the recent rumblings about third party exclusivity and such, I thought it would be a good idea to raise the general morale (and maybe upset the fanboys in the process...not that I'm doing that intentionally). Right, so, with the recent announcement of Street Fighter V as a PlayStation 4 console exclusive, gamers are more or less losing their minds in both good ways and bad. O...

The November NPD Report And What It Means For Xbox One And PS4

16d ago ... Each month gaming companies, gamers, and consumers anxiously await the monthly NPD report. This report provides tracking and analysis of U.S. gaming hardware and software sales and each month, fans of their respective consoles tout the results of the console that managed to top the sales charts in the U.S. For the past eleven months, the Playstation 4 has been the top selling console in the U.S...

The Gift of Gaming Gone Wrong?

17d ago ... I am a man on a mission. My goal is to convert as many of my relatives into gamers as possible. I need people to play with….and borrow games from. I never said this mission was altruistic. Like any good indoctrination scheme, my focus is on my younger family members. Their minds are there to be molded. Anyway, enough of the creepy backstory. I want to buy a gaming device for my niece who’s abou...

Console exclusivity and gamer hypocrisy

19d ago ... The big news to hit the Internet recently, is that Capcom's newly announced Street Fighter V will be exclusive to the PS4 and Windows PC. The mere mention of yet another high profile 3rd party IP getting the console exclusivity treatment has caused outrage amongst gamers. More specifically the Xbox crowd, who are outraged that a game from such a popular, previously multiplat franchise will b...

I Am Disappoint: Destiny Part 2

19d ago ... Why, hello there. Perhaps you may have noticed but, this is coming out much later than I would've liked. That's simply terrible, because by now discussion surrounding Destiny has most likely simmered to the point of me having to toss it in the microwave before anyone is interested in taking a bite again. So, as a nice little warm-up before I delve into my more constructive breakdown of the s...

Are Games Spreading the Idea of Violence?

19d ago ... Yesterday I have been reading a news from The Guardian, which was about the sale of the recently released video game Grand Auto Theft banned in Australia due to violence against women. I wouldn't discuss violence against women specifically because once it's violence it against all kind of people. The article wasn't too long but it raised a quite large controversial debate topic: is the idea vio...
