Games and more Games

41d ago ... 2014 and guess what more games and less money in your pocket to buy those games. Before you know it and the year is over you notice how much you spend on games. It's become a skill for me to choose certain games to buy at full price if I really want them. However now that I have less money to spend with I'm going to start rethinking my situation. Like waiting 3 months after the releas...

Use it or Lose it?

41d ago ... Are used games a friend or an enemy to the industry? For that matter, what are they to you? At first glance, the issue wouldn't seem like a relevant topic for the next gaming generation following players' apparent victory in favor of used game support for next-gen consoles. Scores of gamers reveled in Microsoft's astounding 180 on their previous used game restrictions for the X-Box One and t...

You Know What's Bullshot?

41d ago ... Legend speaks of a time in which a product you were selling had to be representative of the final product at all times. These were the days of the False Advertisement Laws, when consumer interests were protected and you got exactly what you expected and paid for. Those Golden, Halcyon days of Yore have long since perished and in their place, dark days of deceit and the dreaded bullshots have re...

A Troll By Any Other Name...The Scientific Classification Of Internet Trolls

41d ago ... The study of the common troll is relatively new one. Trolls were well documented in Norse mythology and in that of Scandanavia. In Norse mythos, they were seen as isolated, supernatural beings that dwelled in places far away from civilization and were rarely helpful to human beings. They were seen as large, hulking beings or even pint sized annoyances that terrorized anyone that dare to venture...

The "other thing" the PS4 doesn't do.

41d ago ... The Playstation 4 has been out for a few months now and I don't care. I'm content with my PS3. Let me clarify though, I don't care NOW. I'm sure I'll care a little when inFamous comes out and a little more when Batman is released. I'll care when Final Fantasy XV shows up and I'll really care, if and when, The Last Guardian gets made. And really, this is what has happened since the dawn of gamin...

Shaq Fooled

42d ago ... Hey! Did you hear? They are making a sequel to Shaq Fu! The tournament fighter centered on the Big Aristotle, often seen as one of the worst games of all time is back for round two! I’ll admit when I heard this news it did put a smile on my face. I’m a huge basketball fan, so I always welcome offbeat titles loosely centered on the sport. Games like Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City, Barkl...

Am I Blinded By Nostalgia?

42d ago ... Folks, I have a confession to make: I'm a hopeless nostalgic. It's true. Every time I pick up a game, I always think to myself, "Hmm, is this as good as I remember it," or rather, "I bet it's not as good as the previous." No matter what original or continuing franchise I happen to get into, a certain attitude of perspective goes into it based on my previous gaming experiences. I can't help but...

Get it through your skulls;Graphics. Don't. MATTER! (To an extent.)

42d ago ... So news recently came out that Watch Dogs was apparently downgraded graphicswise after its delay. I don't understand HOW they made it look worse. I usually respect the game creators, but I don't know what made them think it looked better than before. I could've had this back in November for the PS4 or Wii U or Xbox 360, yet it was delayed to "polish." Now, is the downgrade worthy of CANCELLI...

What Is Machinima?

43d ago ... Okay, before we begin I have to make sure that people know that I did work for Machinima.Com back in the day and this discussion isn’t going to be talking about Machinima.com, just Machinima. So will only be mentioned vaguely Source Filmmaker. Machinima is short for Machine Cinema, it is most commonly used to describe vides made using video games. I am not talking about game commentaries, th...

Are games changing?

44d ago ... Since the early years of gaming (NES, ATARI, SEGA MASTER SYSTEM) one thing has remained as a prime objective: Fun! Whether it’s the aim of getting a high score, saving a princess, or going crazy in a lawless open world city fun has always been the gamer’s goal. In the past few years’ game producers have made promises and those promises have been either hit or miss. What’s worse is that some har...

7 Aspirations for Destiny

44d ago ... 2014 looks set to be an incredibly exciting time for the videogame industry. Next to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 edging gracefully into the twilight years of their impressive legacies, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are slowly but surely gathering the pace required to supersede them, and with games like Titanfall, Rust, Hotline Miami 2 and Dark Souls 2 all on the horizon, whatever your fo...

A Top 13 For 2013

45d ago ... The gaming chapter of 2013’s officially one for the history books and with that final note comes the unflinching tradition of the pomp and splendor of the awards that follow. Always one to break with tradition, I take the time to display my very won list, crafted by yours truly appropriate to the year of its debut. Thirteen games for the year of 2013 is the only list I could make in good fai...

The Two Sides of Reboots/Remakes

45d ago ... Introduction Okay! So first I’m going to give examples and then I’m going to explain at the end of both sides of the argument of reboots/remakes of movies and games. 2013 Tomb Raider The Tomb Raider reboot of 2013 is actually the second reboot of the franchise but is considered an entire retcon of the series since it’s a prequel and the title is just Tomb Raider. Anyway, the Tomb Raider...

Rare Where?

45d ago ... Sometimes, not very often, a developer comes along that conquers the technology of the time perfectly. Rare were one of the first. If that pun made you smile then you already know where this article is going. If you are anything like me, this will already be making you feel a little dead inside. Before all that though, there was Donkey Kong Country. I know Battletoads came before that an...

Consider yourself a rat: Homophobia on N4G.

46d ago ... Four days ago I submitted an article titled "The Fight to Get Gay in Video Games" (you can find it here: http://n4g.com/news/1465453/the-fight-to-get-gay-in-video-games). Submitting any sort of article is something I don't do very often. I also don't comment very much. One of the reasons I am a slack contributor is the rampant homophobia that needs addressing on this website. The reason I pu...

Why Episodic Gaming Is Worth Tuning Into

46d ago ... Few audiences can recall a more thrilling sight than the words of “To Be Continued” gracing their televisions. There’s simply little that can compare to the nervous excitement of your favorite show leaving you with that all too intense cliffhanger to eagerly await the week after. Why shouldn’t we get more feelings like that for our video-games? In spite of its rarity, episodic content is not...

Why Do We Play?

47d ago ... I look at a game-screen as I watch its beauty unfold before me. Maybe I hold it in my hands or am watching it from my couch or chair. My fingers fly across many-colored buttons, or maybe my whole body moves to the beat of the instructions onscreen. I watch stories unfold, characters evolve, whole worlds being realized. Video-games enchant me in only so many ways that I can only describe in writ...

The sickness of n4g part 1

47d ago ... I've been here since 2010 maybe for some of you that isn't very long but for me it's long enough to observe n4g has a problem. I've encountered my share of fanboys on both sides from various gaming websites usually it's 3 or 4 people and there are enough level-headed posters to shun them out or realize their arguments are rather silly, n4g on the other hand is the opposite. N4g is what happe...
