Lets sniff some glue !

1h ago ... Square Enix CEO gets on the platform at the Playstation event after making a long trip from Japan just to announce 1 game. Shows FF7 logo. Everyone's excited... Reveals the 9000th port of FF7, but wait this time its a PC port. So "Preez be excited" (at that moment he knows he just trolled everyone like a boss). All this just shows Square Enix is out of touch with gamers and its own fans. Nex...

Christmases of Gaming Past

1d 7h ago ... While I was watching my niece and nephew play Minecraft over these past few weeks, I couldn't help but look back at how gaming has changed as I helped them explore and build. The first gaming device my family ever had was an original pong system that was hooked up to a small nine inch black and white television via alligator clips connected to a UHF receiver. To play against each other we w...

Gaming Under Relative Adversity

2d ago ... The holidays are a time to spend with you loved ones, the ones nearest and dearest to your heart – PS4, XB1, 3DS, PC etc – whatever your poison. Every year, I have grand designs to use my little free time to put in some serious gaming, particularly of the RPG variety. However, year after year, I have my quality time invaded upon by; you guessed it – my relatives. No, I don’t care about what yo...

A Very Dreamcasty Christmas

6d ago ... I’m sure that we all have great memories from past holidays. For me, personally, my best gaming Christmas memory goes back to 1999. This was the year that I got a Dreamcast. I know a lot of people are tired of hearing about how awesome the Dreamcast was, but the fact remains that it was a joy to own. For those who never owned a Sega console, it represented a slightly different experience from t...

Personal Identity And Gaming

7d ago ... This blog is one that asks you a simple question. When playing games, do you identify yourself as the character you play, or do you simply take on the role of the character you are playing with all of their own unique traits and characteristics? To understand more of what I'm talking about, it would do you some good to watch these 2 videos that reference a study that states that most gamers...

Return of JRPGs:Xensosaga, Dark Cloud, Shadow Hearts, Suikoden

7d ago ... This blog will look at how it really IS possible to revive extinct video game series, so long as there is a will on part of the gamers. Shadow Hearts is a video game series which ended in 2006 due to the publisher who owns the Shadow Hearts Intellectual Property going bankrupt. Dark Cloud and Suikoden are other series which have virtually become extinct as the publishers have shown no interest...

Remasters: You're Doing it Wrong

9d ago ... This generation, we're getting more than a handful of remasters. No really, as thin as game cases are these days, you probably wouldn't be able to hold them all in one hand comfortably, gamers with original XBOX Duke controller hands withstanding. Anyway, we've been getting a lot of them these days and it's gone from mild to shamefully shameless. Granted, the lot of them have been remasters...

My New Year's Gaming Resolutions

9d ago ... Another year has gone by which means that it’s time for some non-sober reflection on the past year(s). This reflection usually births some sort of determination to change things and to do better in the coming year. So this year, from a gaming standpoint, I want to share some of these resolutions. Can people really change? Probably not, but it’s good to dream. Fear of Commitment I still ha...

Brendan's Blog: Salty Esports

10d ago ... We all saw the Twitter feud between Leffen and Chillindude that started with the discussion of who should be considered "Smash Gods". We also saw Westballz and Hax go at it too. All this salt and BM (bad manners) are a major part of eSports, but what does it do to the reputation of the community? In my opinion, I love seeing BM in eSports because it brings in drama and drama brings in viewer...

Oversensitivity and Social Statements

10d ago ... Okay, so I've been lurking and commenting on N4G for a relatively long period of time now. This is my first blog post, and it's something I've really want to talk about. This has turned out a little longer than I thought, so please bear with me. To begin, I'll assume you've most likely heard about those feminists that constantly criticizing gaming for selective and petty reasons. Who demand...

Uncharted 4 Visual Downgrade- Deal with it

11d ago ... Give credit where credit is due. That has always been my mantra and sometimes it seems at odds with the core gaming community and the landscape in which it resides in, where sometimes, you feel like you are expected to pick a 'side' and stick to whatever default narrative that side has made part of its rhetoric in the virtual war against competing platforms. I like to think that I am somewhere...

RANT: PS4/Xbone Fight Fans are Getting Screwed

14d ago ... Warning:First Thing's First, English is not my first language so don't expect amazing grammar and spelling here. Yes, as the tittle says, PS4,Xbox one Fight Game Fans are getting Screwed and bad! I love Fighting games but anyone that is serious serious about them know that using a Fighstick is the main way of playing them but there are a couple of problems with this on these PS4/Xbox one...

Comparing the first year of the 4 PlayStations

16d ago ... For this blog I'm going to be looking at the first year of all 4 PlayStation home consoles after they were launched in the USA, comparing their launch titles as well as their first year games. If I missed any USA first year titles, please let me know in the comments below. I'm trying to be as comprehensive as possible. I'm writing this blog mostly to remind myself why I have stuck with Sony...

FF7 style JRPGs for PlayStation 4 probably incoming from Square Enix

17d ago ... Final Fantasy 7 for Playstation 4 announced at 2014 Playstion Experience, probably a good indicator that Square Enix is making/going to release/planned JRPGs that looks, plays similar to Final Fantasy 7. Final Fantasy 7 for Playstation 4 is just the game that sets the journey. "So, as for the AAA titles we’re currently developing for series, we basically want to go back to their roots and...

PS4 doomed to have only few games? (1 year on)

17d ago ... [Update: This post had a mistake which said PS4 had about 40 disk based games after 1 year, but it had 77. It also said PS2 had about 75 disk based games but it had more than 136] 1 year ago I posted this article: http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/ranma1/524461 I feel so far its proven to be accurate. At the time I wrote the piece, the original PlaySta...

Would you play Browser Games?

17d ago ... In recent years, with the development of web technology, type of game has been varied again. There are quite a lot of browser games online, such as Shifu, Nightfalls, Dragon Atlas and Dawn of King. Instead of having to download the application or client of game, we merely need to open a web browser and install a plug-in maybe and then we can start playing straight away. Indeed, compared to m...

Do You Even Third-Party Exclusive, Bro?

17d ago ... So with some of the recent rumblings about third party exclusivity and such, I thought it would be a good idea to raise the general morale (and maybe upset the fanboys in the process...not that I'm doing that intentionally). Right, so, with the recent announcement of Street Fighter V as a PlayStation 4 console exclusive, gamers are more or less losing their minds in both good ways and bad. O...

The November NPD Report And What It Means For Xbox One And PS4

18d ago ... Each month gaming companies, gamers, and consumers anxiously await the monthly NPD report. This report provides tracking and analysis of U.S. gaming hardware and software sales and each month, fans of their respective consoles tout the results of the console that managed to top the sales charts in the U.S. For the past eleven months, the Playstation 4 has been the top selling console in the U.S...

The Gift of Gaming Gone Wrong?

19d ago ... I am a man on a mission. My goal is to convert as many of my relatives into gamers as possible. I need people to play with….and borrow games from. I never said this mission was altruistic. Like any good indoctrination scheme, my focus is on my younger family members. Their minds are there to be molded. Anyway, enough of the creepy backstory. I want to buy a gaming device for my niece who’s abou...

Console exclusivity and gamer hypocrisy

21d ago ... The big news to hit the Internet recently, is that Capcom's newly announced Street Fighter V will be exclusive to the PS4 and Windows PC. The mere mention of yet another high profile 3rd party IP getting the console exclusivity treatment has caused outrage amongst gamers. More specifically the Xbox crowd, who are outraged that a game from such a popular, previously multiplat franchise will b...
