Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 shaping up to be hyper-realistic

4d ago ... Set in an open world, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is apparently being everything that fixes the issues of it's predecessor: Open world, day night cycle, realistic weather systems, realistic physics, no hand-holding, realistic scouting, skill upgrades like in real life, extremely difficult and dangerous world design. It's no longer going from A to B but far more complicated. Now you can mask gun s...

So much, and so little...

4d ago ... I have begun to notice that I have a rapidly expanding problem, and I really don't know what to do about it. I have too many games. I collect games from various platforms, not just current generation and last generation titles. I have games from the Atari 2600, NES, SNES, Genesis, TurboGrafx 16, Neo Geo, Sega Master System, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, N64, Gamecube, PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4, Xbox,...

Indie Game Month Contest Details

4d ago ... Welcome to July. July is a special month for us here at N4G. It's that one time of year where we don't just link to the news that other sites provide, but we try our best to create it. If you were here last year, you know what that means. If you weren't, well, let me tell you. Each day of July, starting tomorrow, we will be posting interviews, game write-ups, guest developer blogs, and...

Kickstarter Continues to Confuse

5d ago ... Kickstarter operates on a very simple premise – give me the money I need so that I can make the product that you want. The product that no one else wants to make. It was gaming that catapulted Kickstarter into the limelight. A legendary developer by the name of Tim Schaffer wanted to make an old-school point and click adventure game that nobody supposedly wanted to fund. So, he asked his fans,...

Premortem

6d ago ... As mentioned in a recent post on my website, I wrote for a small games-centric website for the entirety of 2012. At the time I kindly refused to review titles for fear of feigning objectivity, which was, to be frank, ridiculous. The op-ed’s I composed instead were rife with proclamations on every aspect of whatever game in question. Perhaps I felt I’d be pigeonholed somehow by form, and opin...

My Top 3 Most Anticipated Games from E3

6d ago ... Every year E3 sets out to fulfill only one thing, provide a stage on which to show us gamers, media and marketers exactly what games and peripherals we have in store. Many years, E3 comes and goes and leaves nothing more than a slight level of excitement. This year though, I personally was absolutely floored. It seemed that not only was there an amazing amount of content, but it was quality con...

Is it Time the Agree/Disagree System Gets an Update?

7d ago ... Here on N4g there is a system that every user has used at least once. That system is the ability to vote on a comment, with either and "agree" or "disagree." This allows users to show the popular opinion among a sea of comments and helps dissuade abuse of said ability. Although, it is not a flawless system, and unfortunately many have lowered the integrity of the system. The primary issue th...

The Economics of Videogame Storytelling

7d ago ... Many are experimenting with formulae that are heavy on the “Video” part of VideoGame and much lighter on the “Game” part. The game with no gameplay. This is an increasingly popular trend in the videogame market. This is much to the chagrin of the old-school gamers, who see this as some sort of polygonal blasphemy against the founding principles of our medium. Those principles say that gameplay...

The Wii U is DONE: How the Nintendo NX could re-write the rules

7d ago ... Amid the madness that was E3 2015, one detail that was spoken of so briefly that the term ‘glossed over’ doesn’t quite feel accurate–the Nintendo NX console–made a quiet blip on the radar before taking a backseat to the new additions to their longstanding franchise Super Smash Bros. (which really showed me the direction the company is determined to go in), plushies and arguably way too much tim...

Should Games Ever be Re-reviewed?

8d ago ... Games today are different than they were two to three generations ago. Before the modern era of day one patches, hotfixes, and releasing “broken games” at launch, games used to ship to much simpler fanfare: a developer would work and toil on a game, iron out bugs to the best of their ability, print copies of the final game, and be at the mercy of reviewers and fans. One shot. One kill. Ofte...

Hypocrite, the New Word for "Gamer?"

14d ago ... With the games industry seemingly at one of the highest points in years and more games than one could ever conceivably play, one would think that all gamers would be brimming with joy. Sadly, this isn't the case, and the only thing brimming is flamebait and hypocrisy. Sadly, as with previous generations, these people are no longer the minority, they have become the overwhelming majority, especi...

Two Unanswered Questions About Super Mario Maker...

14d ago ... I was able to make it down to my local Best Buy to get a glimpse of #SuperMarioMaker and from the sizable line that wound well into an adjacent section I could tell I wasn’t the only one looking forward to it. What I was more interested in though, was any details I could pry loose from the @NintendoAmerica reps (which wasn’t much) about the social element to Super Mario Maker; namely the parame...

PlayStation & Kickstarter: The Final Solution?

14d ago ... In a recent blog post before E3, I briefly discussed the use of Kickstarter as a platform to get games funded. I have to say, it was either a stroke of luck or intuition where it followed that Yu Suzuki and Sony have opted to use Kickstarter to make Shenmue a reality. I'm a humble fellow, so let's chalk it up to the former and move past it. This, in my opinion, opens up some interesting door...

Final Fantasy VII vs. Rise of the Tomb Raider

15d ago ... Well, looks like I'm going to be writing quite a few blogs in close succession aren't I? But this topic has to be discussed. Why? Well because for those for whom an E3 victory is a matter of life and death, Final Fantasy VII's availability has become a talking point and it's about time it's analyzed. Final Fantasy VII's remake was announced specifically with the words "Final Fantasy VII rema...

The FF7 Remake Gameplay Argument

16d ago ... I just wanted to gather the main arguments coming from the action side of this war, and respond to them in kind. I've yet to hear a legitimate argument for the seemingly-wanted eradication of turn-based. You know what it all comes down to? Say it with me: "I don't like turn-based". That's fine, but that's just YOU. Millions of people do. Millions of people feel the same way about action...

E3 2015 Roundup

16d ago ... With E3 here and gone we are left in the wake of all the big news that was announced at the numerous conferences. What we aim for in this article is to sum up as much as we can. After having watched a full day worth of light shows, loud music and the odd new game here and there, the tiredness kicked in - after all the Sony conference was at 2am..... - this years E3 was all about the games,...

The Phoenix Rises

16d ago ... There are certain games that I hold on a pedestal and then there is Shenmue. Needless to say, when it was announced at E3 that finally we would be getting that coveted third installment, I went nuts. Instantly a flurry of thoughts rushed to my head, recounting my nostalgia for the series. Those quick time events, massive street brawls, sailors, the infamous cave moment, and even Tom the hot dog...

Final Fantasy VII is official...but why am I nervous?

18d ago ... On Monday, during Sony's press conference at E3, it was finally announced that one of the most iconic and highly anticipated game was finally getting the remake it very much deserves. It stole the show (and possibly the entire Expo) with a short trailer that shows glimpses of Midgar, Barret's hand gun, and the iconic Buster Sword. Roars can from the crowed as the excitement consumed the room, m...
