Infamous Second Son: Its Ugly Side

1d 7h 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

1d 23h 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

3d 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?

3d 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

4d 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

4d 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

5d 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...

The Nintendo Way

6d 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...

The Past, Present and Future of Control (Part 2)

6d ago ... The Casual Conundrum Playstation and Microsoft were undoubtedly, along with the rest of the world, blown away by the success of Nintendo’s little motion machine. Naturally, they each developed their own peripherals that would satisfy the now booming motion market. Playstation announced and released what it called the Playstation Move. Like the Wii, the Playstation Move coordinated with the P...

The Past, Present and Future of Control (Part 1)

6d ago ... The controller has basically been around since the conception of the video game. It’s taken many forms: keyboard and mouse, joystick, fightstick, flightstick, racing wheel, and numerous gamepad designs. Some of these peripherals only work with certain types of games, while some of them work with every type of game. Some are quite better than others, but all gives us --the players-- what we desi...

Not Necessarily Necessary News Nor Necessarily Newsworthy

6d ago ... EPISODE 4 In Mario Kart 8, no one can hear you scream, well not online anyway. 1) Ubisoft has confirmed that the definitive version of their upcoming Watchdogs game will be on the Xbox One. They elaborated that these players will have a more immersive experience, considering that the game’s theme centers on paranoia about being monitored 2) As covered in the intro, there is no online c...

My Thoughts About Writing For Gaming News Sites

7d ago ... What I'm about to say is said purely in the spirit and intent of observation, and is said with sincere humility, not arrogance or pride. Whether or not you agree with what I say in my blogs, the fact remains that my blogs do tend to stir up conversations, heated ones at that. Due to many of my blogs, and the fact that 50% of the people who read them hate me for them, and the other 50% love m...

Facebook: the "hero" Oculus needs, not the one it deserves

9d ago ... Now that some of the dust has cleared with this one, I thought I'd briefly make my case on why Facebook buying Oculus Rift isn't that bad. Brief preface: I HAVE actually donned the Rift to play some student-made games at my college. I see potential, but not the next step in digital entertainment. I probably WILL get one myself, but only because the thought of a space-sim with one of those th...

Guess RedDragan's Baby's Name=Win Money

10d ago ... Sometimes when a user wins an N4G prize, they opt to do something a little different. Some users request the prize be donated to a charity, some want theirs to go to a sibling, and still others want me to create a contest around the naming of their firstborn. This is that contest. You see, user RedDragan had a baby, and fatherhood kept him from claiming his winnings in a timely manner. We...

Not Cool, Capcom. Smash Bros Does it Better.

10d ago ... You know, guys, I wanted to stay positive this month by making my blogs focus on Kingdom Hearts. I wanted to share ideas about what Kingdom Hearts III could have in its gameplay and worlds. I wanted to share music I found online that is extremely well done. I also wanted to end it all with a great Beginning, Impact, and Future blog. But even in my good moods, Capcom decides to play the fiendish...

Why Mario Kart 8's Lack of Voice Chat Does and Does Not Matter

11d ago ... So Mario Kart 8 has no voice chat feature. Let me be the first to say that this kind of sucks for Wii U players (and technically for me when I get the thing in the future). A lot of people seem pretty upset by this news, and rightfully so. Some people really want to be able to talk to the people they are playing with and that's a perfectly fine criticism. Although, I do feel like some of the cr...

Let me rant about something I loved

11d ago ... Now I don't know how many people will click to read this based on my title but it's pretty indicative of what the content will be about. Now before we go on let me warn you I AM GOING TO SPOIL THE ENDING TO BIOSHOCK INFINITE BURIAL AT SEA EP 1 & 2. If you played it or have no plans to ever play it then let's get started. I loved my time with Bioshock Infinite and thought it was a fantasti...
