Why Downsizing Makes Sense for Sony

22d ago ... Last gen (7th), the ps3 started off poorly to say the least. With waning developer support and consumer interest, Sony had to work really hard to court consumers. Also, with an expensive console and Nintendo ruling the casual and family markets, it meant that games aimed at that audience were no longer feasible. Against that backdrop, Sony began expanding its first party offerings in the di...

Video Game Music Gone Downhill?

23d ago ... Introduction The point of this discussion is very simple, to raise awareness that music in games has been going downhill for a while now. I will use examples from different eras of gaming. NES, SNES, N64, PS1 and obviously the PC. I will make comparisons to more modern games music but I will discuss about that at the end, first I will make examples that will help me to make my point. Now...

How to fix Sonic the Hedgehog...no, REALLY!

24d ago ... Once upon a time, Sonic went toe-to-toe with Super Mario Bros, one of the most popular videogame franchises of all time. In fact, there was a season when the SEGA Genesis was actually outselling the SNES in the USA and in Japan. This was due, in large part, to the popularity of Sonic the Hedgehog. Since the 16-bit era, Sonic had fallen down. Hard. We're not talking about skinned knees here. We'...

The True Value of VR

24d ago ... Over the past few years, something that was seen as a joke, as a flop (Virtual Boy) a mere decade ago has become a very feasible reality. I'm talking about Virtual Reality. When Occulus Rift launched its Kickstarter, it certainly got a lot of attention. However, I can't speak for you, but I doubted it would become anything significant (see: Ouya). But I was wrong. Occulus Rift has not only begu...

Why I left N4G almost a year ago

24d ago ... As most of you here that are reading this, I am a Playstation fan and have been since the PS1 but that never stopped me from enjoying other consoles and discussing even the ones I don't like fairly such as the Wii U. Why am I mentioning this? Because as a Playstation fan I am embarrassed to say N4G is probably one of the worst places on the internet for video game discussion and here's why....

What's "sexy" and what isn't "sexy" in gaming

24d ago ... I hate classifying gaming as "Sexy" but to be honest I just wanted an excuse to show off that picture of Palutena. Anyway, there are many things that people like, and many things that people don't like. It's mainly all opinions, but here's mine. We'll see if you agree. What is "Sexy:" Graphics This was a no brainer. I've stated many times that I don't care about graphics as long as they lo...

Indie Game Stories #1 How People Look At Indies

25d ago ... Introduction This is a series of “stories” on the game industry and other various things that we have to go through, if you want to be an indie developer I heavily suggest reading these. If you’re not but are interested in what’s going on in it then read, but if you have no interest in gaming whatsoever then please leave. Just like with everything else I do, I base everything on facts and n...

Why DLC sucks

25d ago ... Now I know the title of this is going to immediately ruffle some feathers. I am also aware that most of those feathers will be of NEW gamers. When I say new I mean any gamer who started his/her career with the PS3 and Xbox 360. You see Downloadable Content didn’t rear its ugly head regularly until the aforementioned gaming machine made their debuts. Downloadable Content (DLC) was in theory an e...

Assassin's Creed Unity - Plot Predictions

25d ago ... As I'm sure you all know, Ubisoft's officially confirmed the existence of the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity game, and its narrative backdrop of the 'Révolution française'. With this new (albeit fairly vague) info out in the public domain, 've done a quick bit of research on the French Revolution, and I'm starting to think I can make an educated guess about the pseudo-history and potential...

DX12 on the XBox One is actually great, BUT...

25d ago ... DirectX12 was finally unveiled at GDC this year and it definitely seems promising, especially after the Forza 5 demo. Of course, the PC will get all of the benefits from the new API, but some features are also on the way to the Xbox One. It releases in late 2015. Obviously, this means that the Xbox One will be able to run more graphically intensive games while maintaining it's average resoluti...

Wii U, XBox1&PS4 How the #'s Stack Up

26d ago ... I've read countless theories and opinions concerning people's favorite console and the reason they are "winning" the console war or why they are "losing". This invariably is followed by recommendations as to how their respective system should go about either furthering their "lead" or how to "bounce" back- So, I've decided to take another approach to what at times can be a very frustrating argu...

xbox one dx12

26d ago ... Even though I'm a confirmed playstation and ps4 fan (see my post history if you care to), after reading some confusing and conflicting commentary on the subject,I wanted to discuss dx12 on the xbone with a friend who knows about these things (he works for a sizeable US dev). It was around 2 weeks ago when I simply asked him: "Is dx12 going to help the bone?"... and this was his reply, edi...

Fans: No Matter What You Choose, You've Won

27d ago ... I love video games; love 'em to death honestly. I've been gaming ever since I was a little baby, playing Mario when I was barely speaking sentences, then Sonic when I was into Saturday morning cartoons, Jak & Daxter in junior high, Halo when I was entering high school and now a little mix of everything in between. Video games are most certainly my passion and certainly hold a very dear place in...

Will Game Reviews Become Irrelevant?

29d ago ... It has become increasingly common to see a review embargo for games that expires upon release of the title. There are a number of reasons for this. The most obvious to one with a sufficiently suspicious or cynical mind is that the publisher knows the game is subpar and will be reviewed poorly. In this case, the benefit is that the consumer will purchase/fail to cancel pre-order, before seeing t...

Graphics are Overrated

29d ago ... From the first days of video games (or any other visual media) your eyes are the first things to be treated to what the form has to offer. Graphics have always been the measure to which the common gamer judged a game. Back in the day graphics mattered, but not all that much. All you needed was a visual representation of your character on screen A La Mega Man or Mario, and you were pleased. Your...
