QTE's and Cinematic Games Aren't Going Away

It's Monday, I've been up for about an hour and a half as of the writing of this blog, and I... Comments(28)

The Order: 1886 and The "Justifications" for The Negativity Towards it.

15d ago ... So most of you are probably tired of all the negative articles and opinions surrounding Ready at Dawn's upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886. Most of the negativity seems to be "Justified" by the people making these opinions; Story too short, linear, too many QTE segments, too many cutscenes, etc. Now i have yet to actually play The Order so this is not an opinion on the game or is...

Nathan Drake, Why Are You So Attractive?

15d ago ... Since the beginning of video game history, we as gamers have always found ourselves attracted to certain video game characters for one reason or another. Even in the 16-bit or 32-bit eras when our fictional protagonists were nothing more than oddly shaped, disproportionate polygons...like Lara Croft, for example, with her oddly chiseled face and breasts so pointy you could lose an eye. Despite...

The UnFair Trial Of The Order: 1886 Campaign's Length, Is 5+ Hours Too Short?

16d ago ... Like you, I was a little disappointed to see this, but only because the game is looking so amazing. And in-case you missed it there was a Youtuber who uploaded the entire game, his account has since been deleted, but among a lot of things we learned, one of them is that the game is only 5.5 hours, depending on how you play. Are we gamers becoming too jaded, I mean are we expecting too much f...

Peter Molyneux: Passionate Visionary But Poor Leader

16d ago ... Did any of you read Rock Paper Shotgun's interview with Peter Molyneux? It felt terrible to read to me. If you haven't read it, here's the link. http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/02/13/peter-molyneux-interview-godus-reputation-kickstarter/ I have to say that it was a thoroughly depressing read. Full Disclosure: I haven't played a single game ever made by Peter Molyneux. Not one. So...

Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta Impressions

17d ago ... Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s (MCC for short) online launch woes had brought with it a heaping of disappointment and rage among many gamers, including this writer. Out of that ire and contempt from those circumstances came some amelioration in having the opportunity to take a gander at where this series will be going as far as multiplayer is concerned. And while I currently can’t see my...

For The Love Of Life - Part 2

19d ago ... Since my last Valentine's Day special blog got such an enthusiastic reaction from Cat, I'd thought I'd give it another try this year. However, I realize I'm limiting my options severely by sticking to the same rules as I did last year, so instead we're going with a different theme: Unconventional This valentine's day, we shall examine the more unconventional stories about love in videogam...

Forget Law & Order: SVU. I'm Proud to be a Gamer

19d ago ... Law & Order: Special Victims Unit had some serious gall recently. In their attempt at scripting a fictitious narrative regarding harassment within the gaming community, the show's writers concocted one of the most disgusting and misleading portrayals of gamers I have ever seen. To say that I was angry would be an understatement. To say that I can now look at that episode as a lazy attempt from...

Evolve Dlc And Microtransactions Disaster...

22d ago ... Many fellows of N4G here might not have noticed how ugly and downright disgusting Turtle Rock Studios and Take two have made the dlc and microtransactions in the game. So i am here to shed some light on the matter. So after you pay 60$ for the full game or that's what you expect, you need to pay this amount for the full game experience. Here’s the full information on the Evolve Hunting Seaso...

The Money Grab

23d ago ... In my last two blog entries, I touched on the topics of the Season Pass ( http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/valenka/531688 ) and Dying Light's pre-order bonuses, which were really just early unlocks of poor quality, future content ( http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/valenka/531760 ). For any returning readers, you'll recall some highlights of my Season Pass entry, where I spoke about companies...

The Problem with Developer Power on Steam

26d ago ... We have just about passed that time of the year where everyone was posting their best and worst lists of 2014. This included movies, songs, anime, and video games. I enjoy seeing what people have to say about their personal best and worst choices. Something I have noticed from worst lists representing both 2013 and 2014 is that there are quite a few Steam games that made it on those lists and I...

The NintenTube Fiasco ~ A Slap In The Face or a Fair Step to the Future?

26d ago ... Unless you've been living under a rock these past few weeks, then you more than likely have already heard that Nintendo has introduced a brand new YouTube program that allows YouTubers to register single videos or their entire channel with Nintendo, whereby they can upload videos that feature (approved) Nintendo content and receive a percentage of the generated ad-revenue. From since its inc...

Truly Awful Gaming Puns

30d ago ... So it should be said: I love puns. I have a sick love of them and I also love really corny jokes. Grew up on that sort of humor, and I decided to take a break from my daily routine to come up with really cheesy, awful, cringe-worthy puns that hopefully you all can love/hate with the same passion. Hopefully you all get many/most/all of them, but any readers should totally add their own to the mi...

You Patreon Me and I Patronize You?

33d ago ... A lot of religious art exists for a simple reason. Artists needed funding and churches were one of the few institutions wealthy enough to underwrite the costs involved in supporting them. Banks and a few other wealthy individuals were also able to pay for these services. In the process, by virtue of the patronage, they dictated the face and definition of art. They decided which techniques were...

Sony need to pull their fingers out and provide a native Media Server ASAP

34d ago ... I was a technological neophyte having just built my first computer so I could play Starcraft 2 at above 5 frames a second. I'd not long since moved into my friends house, who it so happened was an avid Playstation gamer(Dare I say Fan-boy?! But that's a discussion for another time and braver souls than I!). He had let me create an account on his Playstation 3,to play Demon's Souls and suchlike...

Gaming and Education Part 1: My Perspective as Educator and Gamer

34d ago ... This is a topic that often is thrown around, but I wanted to contextualize it. It's not rare to hear many people boast that gaming has educational benefits, but I wanted to really emphasize this for two reasons: I am an educator. I am a gamer. That said, as an undergrad in education, you tend to be surrounded by a lot of people who view gaming differently. Gaming does not have a specif...

The Eighth Console Generation is Weird

37d ago ... So here we are, a little over a year into all of the eighth console generation platforms being available to the public. Though each of the platforms show promise and the games look to be getting better and better, there are some things about this console generation that seem, well, off. Here's a short list of why I think this generation is a bit wacky compared to last. 1. None of the console...
