An Open Letter to Gaming Media

1d 8h ago ... I have been on the sidelines observing the recent stories that involve everything from Anita Sarkeesian to Zoe Quinn to Phil Fish to Polygon to Kotaku to indie studios' attacks to corruption and finally to gaming media lashing out at gamers. I have recently commented that enough is enough and I'm not going to stand for it anymore. Everything that I have mentioned is going to get their fair shar...

Trolls, #gamergate style.

2d ago ... Trolls, trolls everywhere! And they are getting fed plenty right now. The way I see it a troll is someone who takes the opposite stance to pretty much anyone just to get the reaction they desire, usually it's just for a rise but I see a new troll kind of trollhas arisen. It's dangerous, insidious and has sharp pointy teeth (said in a montey python voice)! Ladies and gentlemen, I refer to...

Shenmue, GoldenEye and Championship Manager - My Top 3 from the Last 15 Years

2d ago ... I cannot recall a game absorbing me into it’s world as much as Sega’s 1999 masterpiece Shenmue. Developed by Sega AM2, and the brain child of Yu Suzuki, you play the role of Ryo Hazuki as he comes to terms of the death of his father, and begins his own personal quest in finding out why his father met his end and to carry out vengeance on those who killed him. Set in Japan’s Yokosuka, what se...

Digital Overspending

3d ago ... More and more, gamers are going the digital distribution route for their games. While it certainly is a convenience, there are a few things that need to be pointed out as a matter of consumer interest. Digital downloads, by their nature require us to either use credit cards or Pre-paid (scrip) cards (eg a $20 PSN card) as a means of purchase. A lot of research has been conducted that states tha...

Our Favorite PS4 Games So Far

3d ago ... Destiny As probably the biggest release of the year, Destiny is a really fun game to play. Even more so when you play with friends. We have been really excited to get our hands on this and shoot some aliens. Although there are some areas that are lacking, Bungie’s new sci-fi shooter sits very well with us. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Wow there is so much to do in this game! There...

#OccupyGamergate

4d ago ... Greetings fellow gamers. (You see how I used the term gamer right off the bat so you'd know which side of Gamergate I'm on? clever, right?...no? ok). "Hey, what is this asshole on about?" you ask. Well like many of us, I've been following Gamergate pretty closely for a while now. The thing is, this controversy has been of particular interest to me; you see, I used to identify as a feminist for...

When does Next Gen truly start?

5d ago ... When we buy a next gen system, we expect at least a game or two to stand out and scream next gen. To make us stand up and say, "wow, I cant believe this is a game!" or "This couldnt have been done last gen". Not just visually, but with gameplay also. I can remember, the entire way back to the Atari 2600, each system launch having at least one or two of those games that made you gasp in amazemen...

How the Hype-Train Plowed Over Destiny

7d ago ... Oh the sad case of Destiny. How did the most anticipated game of 2014 fall so flat? A few short months ago everyone, myself included, was really enjoying the Beta, so how is it that after final release Bungie’s latest is now stuck at a Metacritic review score of 75/100 with a user score of 6.5? While review scores are definitely not everything when it comes to rating a video games worth, and us...

Game Remakes, A Double Take...

7d ago ... Every day there is a new article posted on remakes and ports, going back-and-forth as to why they love and hate the practice. Stating that Metro was a proper remake while Last Of Us, GTA and Tomb Raider are all just cash grabs. Slightly updated visually and repackaged. Tomb Raider was one of the best looking and playing games on next gen systems this year, above those others that were design...

PC Gaming: It is more about OPTIONS than graphics.

7d ago ... I see it time and time again on this site and I do not know why it drives people to spread utter misinformation and bull about another platform. I see the same comment made over and over, "you need a 1K PC to run games that look good".......NOT even close! You can find many affordable builds that will get you in to PC gaming for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embe...

Destiny - Don't defend it like it is your child, the reviews are not wrong...but neither are you.

7d ago ... I decided to type up this blog tonight reflecting on the recent Destiny reviews and the user reaction on N4G regarding said reviews. It has sparked a great divide and controversy within the community of N4G and has worryingly led to some outright delusional viewpoints and comments. The rallied defence for Destiny really does show how loyal a fanbase it already has and having only been out fo...

Microsoft's Misuse Of Their IPs

7d ago ... Microsoft has been criticized for the past few years for relying too heavily on a few IPs. The original Xbox had a large amount of exclusive games that were first party with games like Halo, Conker, Mechassualt, Crimson Skies, Forza, Project Gotham Racing, Rallisport Challenge, Brute Force, Blink, Voodoo Vince and several other titles being published (and owned) by MS for the Platform. Microso...

ID@Xbox And The Indie Games Conundrum

11d ago ... I'm going to start off this blog post with something most of you should know about me by now but some may not. I'm not really fan of the indie games, nor the extreme focus being placed on them. I view the focus being placed on indie games, clearly evident especially from Sony's conferences where indie game titles take up way too much conference time, to be the answer to a problem all 3 platform...

11d ago ... Please remember this is my personal opinion, if you disagree respectively give yours and be constructive and unbiased. It also worth noting that I didn't play several graphical powerhouses such as Rage, Beyond Two Souls and GTA V (I however seen this played on PS3 on my TV ). 15: Red Dead Redemption (Played on XB 360) Red Dead Redemption set new standards for open world graphics, the draw...

Destiny: Did Bungie Bite Off More Then They Could Chew?

12d ago ... After years of cryptic hints and teasers under the codename Project Tiger first details of Bungies next game leaked in November 2012 revealing concept art and some plot details about the game. Going by it's working title Destiny, Bungie wanted to "build a universe" that would "take on a life of its own.

12d ago ... So, imagine you are a young guy in his 20s in this setting. You find the dream that was promised to you as a child, the dream that you worked towards your whole life, turn out to be a lie. Nobody will tell you the truths about life when you are young, certainly not truths like these, they sell you lies and fiction. Lies and fiction convince and motivate you to do exactly what they think you nee...

Summer Lessons: A course in Cultural Understanding Part 1

12d ago ... Every so often, something gets announced in Japan that raises a few eyebrows in the West. It mostly has to do with sex, a topic where our cultures seem worlds apart. You get two basic responses when these strange titles come up. The first is one of condescension and ridicule. The second is one that can be summed up as “they’re Japanese, you wouldn’t understand”. Neither one of these responses h...

The Industries' Obsession With AAA Games

12d ago ... Over the years I have noticed that more and more developers and publishers are posting about sale figures. Videogame budgets greatly increased form 6th gen to 7th gen. During the 6th generation of consoles; games required smaller budgets to reach the AAA standard. The lower development prices of games allowed for new releases to be consider successful even if they failed to reach 1 million in...
