Standalone PS4 or Wii U + Vita, Which Would You Buy?

5h ago ... It will probably surprise those of you who have never seen me comment before, but I love video games. Shocking, right? In fact, I love them so much I tend to branch out beyond my favorites and play whatever I can get my hands on that also peaks my interest. This past generation is also the first one in which I have not sold older consoles to get the newer ones, so of course it's that much more...

Nintendo's Quietness is Beginning to get Annyoing

6h ago ... Nintendo are incredibly Japanese. What am I talking about? Just look how they operate; they seem to work in a more, traditional manner, than their brother – Sony. Nintendo has always been about doing their own thing. That’s how it’s been for a pretty good while now. They’ve always been the source of everything that was against the mainstream. They created these weird, quirky, and sometime...

Kickstarters to Look Out For

1d 1h ago ... A few Kickstarter projects have recently come to my attention. Now, I know that some people approach Kickstarter with caution; however, some of these projects look promising and have some funding. The intent behind Kickstarter is to help out and I think that these are some worthy ideas to get behind. After all, Mighty No. 9 wouldn't be where it is now without support from the community. There i...

The popularity of the AAA FPS has more to do with the AAA, and less to do with the FPS

4d ago ... Everyone seems to think that FPS and action games are the only genres that can be successful in the AAA space. But, why is that? Why, suddenly, are there only two genres capable of success, when we used to have a good variety of genres? Some will argue that "AAA" hasn't existed until the PS3/360 gen. I argue that "AAA" has always existed, and is simply defined by a developer pushing the t...

Is Nintendo’s Current 2014 Line-Up Enough to Save the Wii U?

5d ago ... This is my first post, i am so nervous :p , hope you enjoy it. Over a year after its launch, the Wii U continues to struggle in the console marketplace despite having a rather large catalog of games currently available. Last year, Nintendo bet their hopes on a series of holiday titles – Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, The Wonderful 101, Wii Party U, and Super Mario 3D World...

The $30 Demo Debacle.

5d ago ... So here we are guys, I've had 5 days to play Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes and I wanted to make this blog to just talk about it, the controversy that followed it and what we gamers should do. So When talking about Ground Zeroes we got to start with the sore point of it all which is, Ground Zeroes main story can be finished between an hour to 2 hours and it costs $30 to own physically....

Not Necessarily Necessary News Nor Necessarily Newsworthy

6d ago ... EPISODE 5 Shenmue 3 is close to being announced, in some dimension, but definitely not in this one. 1) Breaking News: It pleases me to report that the upcoming reputation system on the Xbox will also be adopted by N4G. The basis of the system involves putting people with bad reputation together and away from those with good reputations. So rejoice! We’re finally going to be rid of those p...

The Ground Zeroes Price Debacle - Is It Worth It?

7d ago ... This is where I take my positivity hat off for a second and talk about something I strongly feel gamers should not be supporting. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is the Tanker Mission-esque prologue to the upcoming Phantom Pain. A decent stealth action game that lasts for what many estimate as an hour of story related gameplay, with some side missions that basically serve as padding. If you w...

Kingdom Hearts III: Possible New Concepts

7d ago ... Hello, everyone! I'm back to talk more on the possibilities leading up to the highly anticipated Kingdom Hearts III. For those of you who got to see my first blog, I talked about worlds that I would nominate as candidates for the final installment. In this blog, I would like to share what I think would be excellent additions for certain worlds, gameplay elements, and what fans would think about...

Infamous Second Son: Its Ugly Side

8d ago ... Recently I got into a debate (that's all I seem to do) on here about the visuals for Infamous: Second Son. In my opinion, whilst the game certainly looks impressive most of the time, it is not the best looking next-gen game I have played. If anything, I believe that award should go to Killzone: Shadow Fall and some of Battlefield 4's cinematic set pieces in its campaign were a lot more jaw-d...

Love Thy Fellow Gamer

8d ago ... For my first post I talked about how all of the fans of gaming, no matter what their platform of choice was, were going to be able to get really awesome experiences from their respective favorites and a few people seemed to appreciate the sentiment. I'd like to expand a bit on that blog by talking more about how we as gamers treat each other. edit: Was inspired to try tackling this topic whe...

Star Citizen: How the biggest crowd-funded project ever could change the gaming landscape

10d ago ... When Chris Roberts, creator of renowned space-simulator series Wing Commander announced in October 2012 that he was to make his return not only to the stars but to the medium of games itself following a ten year break, he could never have foreseen the outpouring of support he has received from all over the world. For many, Star Citizen is the game that, if successful, could fundamentally change...

Was There A Video Game Renaissance?

10d ago ... I am constantly thinking about the history of the video game industry. It seems like many articles on N4G are written by "journalists" that either ignore history completely for the sake of hits or simply aren't old enough to remember it. However, I was there for its humble beginnings. I can recall fondly when I told my mother that I wanted an Atari 2600. Being a single mother, and a teacher wit...

The Real Reason Behind Making The Last Of Us Remastered

11d ago ... It may seem crazy that we are now getting a remake from a company like Naughty Dog. Especially when there was article after article about how Naughty Dog is not interested in doing a re-release of their game with updated graphics. Makes sense right, why work on a port of an old game that has already done it’s numbers, anything now is just going to be so small it may not be worth even doing it....

Stop Supporting Blatant Cash Grabs

11d ago ... I'm just going to come right out and say this at the very beginning, The Last of Us Remastered is a clear cash grab and poor attempt at bolstering PS4 releases in the wake of the fact that true PS4 releases are slow going because Sony didn't skimp on support for the PS3 just to bring games to the PS4. The Last of Us Remastered is just as bad as Tomb Raider: Fraud.. I mean Definitive Edition....

The Ascension of Indie Games

12d ago ... Games developers can make games in many different forms of organization. Let it be a one-man team, or a full team with a big name publisher helping them to fund and advertise their creations which doesn't work sometimes as the publishers are restricting the team's creative freedom. That is where independent teams come in as they are advertising their own games and let the consumers give feedbac...

Video game Violence and the hypocrisy relating to it.

12d ago ... GTA V, The Last of Us, Ryse, God of War. What do these games have in common? Well, CONTROVERSY. For around 20 years games, gamers and gaming have faced controversy frequently regarding the depictions of sexual, violent or adult themed content found in them. Before video games there were moral panics over, comics, rock and roll, rap and even theater productions in the time of Shakespeare and...

The Nintendo Way

13d ago ... My first post so go easy on me. But correct me if Im wrong. I feel like I like Nintendo's approach is what we should want when it comes to game development, and yes even the amount of time it takes to make their titles. The vibe I get from Nintendo is them not conforming to the insanely fast-moving video game market that we are seeing today from the gaming world. Have we come to expect m...
