Gamers Nostalgia - The Special Games

8h ago ... Being a gamer my whole life has given me many moments of happiness and excitement. From the unexpected joy of my parents buying me an Atari in the very early 90's to getting my first NES for Christmas and being amazed by Mario games! Eventually, After the snes and megadrive aged, the Nintendo 64 came along, Mario 64…. Wave racer… Mario kart, it was awesome. Then throughout my life, defining my...

Was Destiny Destined to Be a Disappointment?

1d 2h ago ... It is an understatement to say that Destiny's reception by gamers and some parts of the gaming journalism scene has been lukewarm at best with debate after debate about why another one of the biggest releases of the year turned out to be such a financial success but only a moderate critical success. Destiny is the first multiplatform game from former Halo game studio Bungie and was hyped up to...

How the PS Vita Changed My Gaming Life

1d 3h ago ... Introduced me to the Indie Ecosystem The PlayStation Vita has a handful of AAA games, but as you probably know, the system is overflowing with indie titles. Before I owned my Vita, I had never been too heavy on indie games. But thanks to the massive amount of 'free' titles I received via PlayStation Plus, that changed quickly. I would soon be in the mists of spectacular games like Guacamelee...

An Open Letter to Gaming Media

2d 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...

Sony Increase More Investment Into Streaming Entertainment of Playstation Gaming!

3d ago ... As you May have heard or Have seen the News on Sony's Problems with Profit Generation with the recent projected sales Shortage in the mobile section. Example: Sony Tumbles as $2.1 Billion Loss Limits Hirai’s Options When Hirai took over as CEO in 2012, he said Sony’s revival would be driven by games, imaging products and mobile devices. Since then, the company has announced job cuts an...

Final Fantasy XV Looks Absolutely Fantastic, Finally!

3d ago ... I am a forever fan of Final Fantasy, since I first played it as a 12 year old I have been hooked! The series has been a marathon of classics, one after the other we were treated to amazing games. However, final fantasy 13 was the first in the series, if excluding mystic quest, crystal chronicles or dirge of cerberus etc, to receive serious divide amongst its fan base. I personally enjoyed it, b...

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

3d 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

4d 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

4d 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?

6d 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.

8d 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.

8d 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

8d 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

12d 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...

12d 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...
