Importance of Online Game Retailers

1673d ago ... We all love Valve, right? They've, you know, created pretty much the biggest pieces related to gaming in the last dozen years. Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress, and they even have Counter-Strike under their damn belt. But let's face it, Steam is the place to go if you want to buy a game for your PC. What with all the sales that are constantly going on, finding something that both appeals to you...

OnLive... The Good, the Bad, the Future?

1673d ago ... Ok, let me first say: OnLive is NOT WITHOUT FAULTS. Okay? It's not perfect. I don't believe it's going to replace my Steam library, never mind my PS3 library! But... Having said that, OnLive gets SO MUCH right. So much in that I actually think "why does no other service do this"? Also, before carrying on, I should note I am connecting in the UK and I have a feeling I'm on US servers. So a...

[PROTOTYPE 2] has [POTENTIAL]

1674d ago ... -THIS POST WILL SHORTLY CONTAIN A LOT OF SPOILERS IN EXPERIENCING THE FIRST GAME- As most people know, I really enjoyed Prototype when it came out, I will be no part in the pointless Prototype VS Infamous war. But both games had their merits and in the meantime, thanks to the let down that was Crackdown 2, Prototype is the superpower sandbox game franchise I'm looking forward to entertain me...

A poor mans upgrade

1675d ago ... Today I received my long awaited Gigabyte GTX 460 OC. I've wanted to buy a new graphics-card for quite some time now, but due to some "money-problems" (unemployed and on welfare) I couldn't afford it until now. I saved for months to be able to do this and it feels great to finally have it. My old card was a 9800 gtx+ which I could still play most games on great graphics, but I wanted to star...

Your rights as a console owner

1675d ago ... Not exactly sure if this is the proper place to put this, and I hope this won't be seen as advertising because I just want to make sure that anyone that needs to know or that might need to know this information in any future time does so. Recently my PS3, which was an original 60GB, broke down on me due to YLOD. I've had numerous friends with the issue and have known many friends over the ne...

Effect of Other Media on the Gaming Industry

1675d ago ... Let's face it, video games are demonized all across the board aside from the gaming industry themselves. Usually it's because some idiot either can't tell the difference between reality and virtuality or simply because he wants something to blame his behavior on. It is a sickening action that just makes other forms of media less welcoming to their younger brother. Let's think for a second ab...

So Kinect is the Next 32x huh? Not so much. Who's having humble pie?

1676d ago ... Well now 25 day's into the life cycle of the Microsoft Kinect. The fancy, much talked about and apparently much loved add on for the XBox 360. I must admit I decided I wanted one during E3. While the kid's were squabbling here about "Who won E3" I secretly knew the answer, because you can only win something by making money off it. Hand's down Microsoft is making money off everything they sh...

Since when did the MP become the game?

1676d ago ... Let me begin first, modern day competitive online games are rubbish. I like online gaming on PC and consoles, but competitive games are stupid. One thing I can't stand this generation is something Halo 2 caused. The multiplayer SECTION of the game being popularised as 'the game'. This is something I can't stand, this has continued into games such as the Call of Duty series and especially whe...

Do review scores determine which games are good, and which are not?

1677d ago ... As an avid gamer, I'm also an avid reader of gaming media. I regularly check N4G for material to satisfy my insatiable hunger for gaming media. I also regularly visit sites like IGN, Gamespot, Kotaku and more. This lends itself to being a game review junkie. I love reading game reviews and finding out which games are worth my money, and which games aren't. I regularly base purchasing decisio...

When did we throw ourselves away?

1678d ago ... I joined this site a year ago, a youngling fresh on the gaming scene, intrigued by the growing world of social online gaming. What I failed to realize is that I had walked onto a battlefield in which a war is being fought, a war without sense or purpose. but a war that will continue for the foreseeable future. So I have a simple question to pose to you, the denizens of N4G. When did you thro...

4 unfair reasons people will take your bubbles.

1678d ago ... N4G has a great system to reward people who make good comments and punish people who troll and make bad comments. This bubble system for the most part works well but when bias and spit come into the picture, the bubble system becomes corrupted. 4.Personal grudge. Sometimes someone will hit the bubble down button on you just because they can. You made a simple comment to them that was pure...

The Internet's Top 5 JRPG Gripes

1679d ago ... Following on from a post I made a few weeks ago defending the turn based element of JRPGs and why I feel they should never die ( http://dontteasetheoctopus.blogspot.com/2010/11/why-turn-based-combat-should-never-die.html) I started to read articles pertaining mainly to the downfall of JRPGs and why they are losing favour in the West. Many writers and forum contributors have hypothesised over...

3 methods of reviewing that need to die.

1680d ago ... 3.The IGN scoring Method. Example: Graphics 8. Sound 8. Presentation 7. Gameplay 6. Lasting Appeal 8. Final score:10 PERFECT GAME!. While that may be just a little exaggerated, IGN's scoring system is based on scoring the game's attributes then throwing in a number that has little to no relation to the aforementioned attributes. One game that has received the short end of the stick from this...

Memories of Gran Turismo

1683d ago ... With Gran Turismo 5 releasing in less than 24 hours, I start thinking about my experiences with the very first GT. It was at first a mediocre experience, actually more like boring. That changed after a bit of time to the extent of absolute love for the game, until a tragic end. I borrowed the game from a friend, heard it was great, wanted to check it out. I remember when I played it, I th...

Nintendo abandoned the Hardcore Gamer? Thats BS and other Rantings - Perspective of an Old Schooler

1685d ago ... I'm old school. Played the NES, Sega Genesis, SNES, etc. Now over the years Ive seen things come and go... Atari lynx, Sega Gamegear, the Dreamcast. Nintendo losing the title of King to Sony during the n64 to gamecube years and the emergence of Microsoft with the Xbox. If there is one thing that hasn't changed... It is that Nintendo is an extraordinary company. Unlike Sony and Microsoft, Ni...

Ironic Choice of Music in Kinect ad

1688d ago ... You might recognize the riff. Vid-1 (sorry the original was taken down) Its the song used in this Kinect ad Vid-2 lets look at the lyrics shall we? The tune is called "Natural's not in it" by "Gang of Four" The problem of leisure What to do for pleasure Ideal love a new purchase A market of the senses Dream of the perfect life Economic circumstances The body is good bus...

Exposing Sony's lies, hypocrisy, spin etc...

1689d ago ... It is a well known fact many diehard fans of the PS3 are not well informed and see SCE as a charity and not a business. This blog is dedicated to exposing the hypocrisy, lies, truth, "spin" and arrogance of SCE and proving that they are in fact a business. 1) ACHIEVEMENTS AND TROPHIES: Many fans believe that the universal trophy system available on the PlayStation 3 was not influenced, base...

If Microsoft left the gaming industry...

1690d ago ... ...would anything really happen? Before crying "flamebait", try to remember how the market changed when the Dreamcast died and SEGA exited the market. In all honesty, not much changed (although SEGA was/is missed by many). With Kinect as the final grasp of life for the 360 (disagree? Then where are all of Microsoft's studios churning out new games and new IPs?), rumors of the XBOX branch spli...
