When does Next Gen truly start?

1d 22h 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

3d 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...

3d 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.

4d 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.

4d 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

4d 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

7d 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...

8d 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.

Summer Lessons: A course in Cultural Understanding Part 1

8d 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

9d 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...

Pre-order Madness

9d ago ... Pre-orders have certainly changed. Growing up as a gamer in the 90s and early 2000s, pre-orders were just a way to ensure you were able to get a copy of the latest and greatest title on launch day. Fast forward 20 years and pre-orders play a different and more pivotal role in a game's development and marketing. It is not uncommon to have games being announced that are more than a year away f...

N4G & The Internet vs 90's Gaming & Magazines

10d ago ... I was born in 1989. I suppose that makes me quite old! However, growing up in the 90's was awesome! We had the feeling of that first time epic joy from all forms of entertainment. Movies had charm and character, music was great if you ignored that evil pop music, and generally everything for kids felt better than it is today! Gaming especially felt fresh, getting a NES or SNES or even a sega...

Don't Allow "GamerGate" to be Derailed

13d ago ... This whole thing should have been over a week ago. All the major sites involved had to do was a give a statement on what had actually been going on the last couple weeks. Establish some rules for their writers to keep things professional with developers (that WAS the problem here. Not feminism, not harassment, not any of that) and things could have gone back to normal, more or less. Hell, Ko...
