Nintendo's Biggest Issue with Third-Parties IS Nintendo

2d ago ... Yes, you read that correctly. As we all know — third-parties haven't played well with Nintendo, for quite a while now; over 20 years to be exact. Yes — it's been THAT long. Every generation, it seems to be the same old story; Nintendo announces new system with a myriad of the tried-&-true exclusives and only a handful of (decent) third-party titles to accompany them. While their handheld...

A possible effect Microsoft needs to be mindful of

3d ago ... Like a man beating a dead horse I am going to write about the Tomb Raider deal. I am not a huge believer in writing about something that nearly every publication or users has already written about. But I feel one aspect of the deal is being overlooked; the one company that has the most to lose out in the deal is not Square Enix but Microsoft. Microsoft is no stranger to buying timed/exclusiv...

LittleBigPlanet: Stunted by a poor financial model

3d ago ... LittleBigPlanet has been somewhat of a successful series for Sony and they have just unveiled their newest title in the series, LittleBigPlanet 3, for the PS3 and PS4. From October 2008 to January 2013 8 million user generated levels were created and published [1]. I am proudly a creator of two of those 8 million levels even though those levels were nothing compared to some of the amazing creat...

Under the Knife: Public Relations Failure and Fan Outrage

4d ago ... Despite the overwhelming press that Rise of the Tomb Raider got last week, the aftershock is still being felt. It has now been confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be a timed exclusive for the Xbox brand and not a complete exclusive that was being touted in the first twenty-four hours of this news. A lot of people have calmed down from this revelation, but there is still residual resentm...

3 Platform Future: Sony + Conlusion

4d ago ... Sony has made all the right moves with the PlayStation 4 thus far, and the PlayStation brand is the strongest of the big 3 when considering all time console sales. There’s little for me to comment on regarding Sony’s future in the gaming industry. Their $380 million dollar purchase of Gaikai, and upcoming features such as SharePlay on PS4 shows their future in the gaming industry is in the...

Rage of the Tomb Raider and Why You Should Care.

4d ago ... I don't like exclusives. I don't mean the games themselves but the fact that they are limited to one system. Exclusives are made, and thought up primarily to sell the system they're made for. The direct implication of the console manufacturer into the development process is often a positive thing as the game is better optimized and takes full advantage of the hardware at it's disposal. Also som...

The Titan One device makes modded controllers obsolete for gamers looking for a competitive edge and game controller customization. What's a Titan One?

No Man's Sky Theory

5d ago ... I've been following this game closely since it was first announced, and I've also been following the reactions of interested gamers who were attracted to the notion of the 'infinite'. I too was interested but also had concerns regarding the idea of a randomly generated universe. Could it end up being chaotic? Could it lead to uninteresting gameplay? What's the point of an endless universe and p...

5d ago ... Ladies and Gentlemen, I have an exciting announcement to make. Thanks to years of support from my partners here at N4G, the success that that partnership has brought both myself and everyone on the site, I'm proud to announce that the proceeding blog will be posted exclusively on N4G.com. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T2l15bKMZk Yeah, no one cares. The topic of exclusive content just k...

An Open Letter to Microsoft and Square Enix

6d ago ... To: Microsoft Cc: Square Enix/Crystal Dynamics Dear Microsoft, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics, Considering that this is in fact an open letter, and will be ready by many others, allow me to take a moment to preface this and state for the record that I hold no single platform or console at a higher regard than any other on the market today. I am indeed a neutral party and this is a neut...

The Pre-Order Fallout

6d ago ... In the fairly recent past, getting a new game at launch was not a guarantee. If there was a large heavily publicized game on the horizon, you had to pre-order to ensure that you got a copy at launch or face scalper fees if you could not wait for the “re-up”. This was bad for a number of reasons. As a gamer, you bought the game on faith or based on early impressions (trailers/Demos/Magazine prev...

GTA V: A Better Game Than TLOU?

7d ago ... Now I'll start by saying I'm not here to rustle any feathers, I'm not a fanboy, or a troll, I just feel on N4G at least, there's a very large % of people who were disappointed with GTA and it stirs something in me, I feel like I'm unplugged from the Matrix or something and everyone else is not able to see the truth of the situation ( Quite an extreme and arrogant example I know ) I'm not going...

COD AW looks great but is just another lag fest.

7d ago ... With Activision finally making the jump to next gen I have been waiting for those magical words everyone wants to hear - dedicated servers. But, looks like COD is in the P2P hosting business for the duration. That means all your superb games and high K/D ratio mean exactly nothing. Not saying you don't have skill, but you don't know if the guy on the other end is shooting first and dying f...

The best demo I have ever played

9d ago ... "Originally we were thinking of making a game that would make you pee your pants, but at this point we've changed our minds, and now we're aiming for a game that will make you shit your pants". -Kojima Horror seemed to have been a forgotten genre. Resident Evil veered off the left, Dead Space started in the right direction but ultimately caved in to a more action game, Alan Wake was disappo...

The Sims 4 Demo Impressions

9d ago ... Since its announcement in May of last year, I've been avidly looking forward to the launch of The Sims 4. As some may know, my history with The Sims dates back to the launch of the first game and my relationship with the franchise has been quite the rollercoaster of emotions. Between the greed of Electronic Arts and the crumbling of Maxis, which seems to have been rebuilt, for a while, I wasn't...

Sony didn't need to win Gamescom; They have already won 2014

10d ago ... Today I saw two different strategies when comparing Microsoft to Sony and their approach to gamescom. Microsofts announcements were more aimed at selling more xbox ones, particularly in europe This was done by really bringing the hype for the big guns Fifa - Cod - Halo MCC/5 beta - Quantum Break - Fable - AC:U - Tomb Raider. The Fifa stuff was pretty pointless because we know of legends...

New Indie Projects to Check Out

10d ago ... Hello, everyone! It's been a good while since I wrote up something here. I have been sick for awhile and haven't had the opportunity to really focus on writing. For those of you I have messaged about doing an upcoming blog on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, I can assure you that I will get to that this month. You're help and opinions are very much appreciated. I also have been told about some t...

Lara Croft's Entry into the Console War

10d ago ... Since the beginning of time, there was always a central conflict in between both sides of the proverbial coin. With one grand spectrum at both ends of every cord, there was always one side versus another; man and woman, right and wrong, pro-life and pro-choice, Republican and Democrat, religion and atheist and the list goes on. However, those spectra are typically categorized into life itself,...

Polar-Opposite Worlds: Inside and Ori Revamp the 2D Platform

11d ago ... How will two projects revamp a classic genre to fit the modern taste? For starters, Play Dead Studios's "Inside" focuses more on a straight-forward story-telling plot as a young boy journeys from the fields into the city's factory. On the other hand, "Ori and the Blind Forest" developed by Moon Studios set their priorities on the game's mechanical features. To read more details with the videos...

Rest In Peace Robin Williams.

11d ago ... I know this isn't the kind of thing one would normally talk about on a gaming news site, or if they would it'd be more appropriate in the forums; but I can't log into the forums and I think it's appropriate to talk about here considering just who I am about to talk about. In case any of you haven't heard, Robin Williams was found dead today. The current working theory is that he committed su...
