Games that Deserve Their Own Movies

42d ago ... Movies based on video games have a poor track record these days. The movie industry doesn’t always care to produce quality movies based around some of our favorite games. Though, we gamers always seem to want to see our favorite video games turned into a movie. But why make them if Hollywood always ruins them? Of course, there is always a possibility could turn out very bad, but I’ll take those...

Opinion: How Splatoon should do voice chat.

42d ago ... We've all experienced this before in public shooter matches; you're doing your own thing when suddenly someone pops into the match you're in, and this person either has a foul mouth you'd rather not listen to, or has a lot of distracting background noise going on. So now, you have to spend precious seconds, in a match with a time limit, either delaying a respawn or finding a safe place to hi...

The Problem With Being In The Lead

43d ago ... Every new generation is a clean slate for all the companies that make the consoles we love. What happens the generation before never matters once that generation ends, and we've seen it happen time and again. There is one constant though, one thing that has never changed, and that's the arrogance that being the "winner" brings. That arrogance may shift to the next console, or it may exist withi...

Life & Death in Los Santos

47d ago ... There has never been a hero within a Grand Theft Auto story. Tommy Vercetti, Claude, Carl Johnson, Niko Bellic…all of them, by definition, were anti-heroes, people who sought a fair, just end via way of unfair, unjust actions. And in keeping with the calculated brutality of their methods, as well as a desire for peace beyond the crystalline snowstorms and the bloody resolutions was inherent...

It's Bubble Day!

48d ago ... (Actually, there is a "world bubble day" and today isn't it. Shhh...) Comment on this blog (once) and I will give you a bubble! Why? - I'm leaving! ( http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/cat/532341 ) Consider this precious bubble a farewell gift? - We plan on getting rid of bubbles in an update (new comment system) - ...but that update isn't ready, and aren't we all tired of waiting...

Halo Fantasy Cast!

49d ago ... So I'm new to this site and I'm all about debating and hypothetical questions so I thought id start with a "What if?" here and see what other peoples thoughts are... HALO...Let's be honest here...the movie needs to happen. People want it. Give it to us already! Stop the delays! But anyways, I thought I'd make my own little dream cast for the film but I'm totally serious about and think these...

The 7th Generation: A Post-mortem (Part 1)

49d ago ... Technically the 7th gen hasn't actually ended yet, but all three consoles have basically experienced their heyday and the defining games have all been released. The 7th gen was overlong and divisive, but it certainly had its moments. In the first part I will be covering the life and lasting impressions all three consoles left. In the second part I will discuss the direction software makers went...

Letter from Cat

52d ago ... Dear members of N4G, 11x2, AnimeShinbun, FilmWatch and Techspy; I have decided that my time with HAVAmedia has come to an end, and so April will be my last month with all of you. Christopher will be assuming many of my old duties. This is not a decision made in haste, but one that I think is best for HAVA, my family, and me. Simply, I'm needed elsewhere. :) All the best, Cat ***E...

Am I Really You? Discussing Silent Protagonists

53d ago ... Happy April Fools everyone. Hope you didn't get anyone hurt with your pranks; or maybe I should hope that you did considering the skill in pranks has continuously dropped year after year. The last blog I wrote was discussing why iconic characters like Link should be left alone and not subjected to gender/race politics especially when the benefits are either unquantifiable or negligible to th...

Adventures in the DIY-verse: Let's Paint!

54d ago ... This is the first installment in a little series discussing my exploits in console modification, maintenance, and everything else in between. My ultimate hope is to spread some knowledge and help you avoid all the mistakes I made as a beginner when it comes to DIY. As the title states, the first topic I want to bring up is the scary, yet ultimately simple task of painting a console. You've s...

Remasters, remakes and realities (Of game makers)

55d ago ... Which comes first, the games or the gamer? Every console launch sees a struggle play out between game-maker and gamer. Gamers want to see a quality library before they take the plunge on a new console. Game-makers want a sizeable audience at the ready for the game that they just spent $30 million dollars and the last 3 years on. HD gaming and multiplayer features served to greatly increase expe...

Exclusive games and how we should view them

56d ago ... The term exclusive has changed somewhat in the industry. It used to mean if you could only get that game on one particular platform it meant exclusive. While this is true the lines have been blurred over the years for various reasons. I recall Aaron Greenberg from Microsoft used to use the term exclusive even if the game was coming to the PC. In fact titles like Bioshock had 'only on Xbox and W...

Beanman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Perspective)

62d ago ... This feels like a pinch-me moment as I type out the following: a few of the most heavily hyped AAA blockbusters, whose advertisements were undoubtedly plastered all over big gaming sites during their release, have recently received some rather underwhelming reviews scores. Some of the most popular victims would be Destiny (1) and The Order: 1886 (2). And while the results are currently undete...

That nagging feeling.

64d ago ... Change will always give rise to conflicting emotions. When Nintendo announced their mobile plans, many were enthused. Some were investors who see it as a way forward for the company towards the greener pastures of mobile gaming – which will hopefully make more “green” for them. Some wiser fans recognized that for Nintendo to remain game makers, they had to expand and adapt in order to survive...

"Why Can't ______ Be ______?" Discussing The Representation Cliche

65d ago ... When deciding to write a blog, many times the inspiration or even the reason for writing the blog comes from watching a youtube video, or reading some article that makes me feel like commenting on its topic. Today is no exception. I was watching a video on youtube from a Romanian youtuber named veemonro and he was discussing an article written by Ben Kuchera titled "Wait, Why Can't Link Be A Fe...

3 things that could make Fallout 4 the best Fallout yet.

65d ago ... In case you have been locked in a vault for the last few months, Bethesda will be at E3. This has got many people excited as it could lead to the much awaited announcement of Fallout 4. But E3 is still months away and we can only hope for an announcement, but we can also speculate. What could make the beloved Fallout franchise even better? As a fan myself I've thought long and hard and I've com...

Re-innovative games.

66d ago ... Today I would like to present to you some of the games that changed the way we play right now. Games that did not invent a certain mechanic but rather improved upon it and was an inspiration to most games we play now ( hence the word re-innovative) Regenerating Health: Halo 2 (2004, Xbox) Some people credit the original “Halo" for introducing the generating health to the video game world...

Why Video Game Development Is Hard (With A Sidenote On Why It's Easy)

69d ago ... With GDC (Game Developer's Conference) over, it's a good time to step back a look at what awesome things have happened... but that's not my job anymore! Instead, I get to bring you something even more interesting! Thoughts! Feelings! Opinions! Even better yet, they're thoughts, feelings and opinons on something that I have experience in myself! Game Development. An Art that has existed ever...
