Oversensitivity and Social Statements

77d ago ... Okay, so I've been lurking and commenting on N4G for a relatively long period of time now. This is my first blog post, and it's something I've really wanted to talk about. This has turned out a little longer than I thought, so please bear with me. To begin, I'll assume you've most likely heard about those feminists that constantly criticizing gaming for selective and petty reasons. Who deman...

Uncharted 4 Visual Downgrade- Deal with it

78d ago ... Give credit where credit is due. That has always been my mantra and sometimes it seems at odds with the core gaming community and the landscape in which it resides in, where sometimes, you feel like you are expected to pick a 'side' and stick to whatever default narrative that side has made part of its rhetoric in the virtual war against competing platforms. I like to think that I am somewhere...

RANT: PS4/Xbone Fight Fans are Getting Screwed

80d ago ... Warning:First Thing's First, English is not my first language so don't expect amazing grammar and spelling here. Yes, as the tittle says, PS4,Xbox one Fight Game Fans are getting Screwed and bad! I love Fighting games but anyone that is serious serious about them know that using a Fighstick is the main way of playing them but there are a couple of problems with this on these PS4/Xbox one...

Comparing the first year of the 4 PlayStations

82d ago ... For this blog I'm going to be looking at the first year of all 4 PlayStation home consoles after they were launched in the USA, comparing their launch titles as well as their first year games. If I missed any USA first year titles, please let me know in the comments below. I'm trying to be as comprehensive as possible. I'm writing this blog mostly to remind myself why I have stuck with Sony...

FF7 style JRPGs for PlayStation 4 probably incoming from Square Enix

83d ago ... Final Fantasy 7 for Playstation 4 announced at 2014 Playstion Experience, probably a good indicator that Square Enix is making/going to release/planned JRPGs that looks, plays similar to Final Fantasy 7. Final Fantasy 7 for Playstation 4 is just the game that sets the journey. "So, as for the AAA titles we’re currently developing for series, we basically want to go back to their roots and...

PS4 doomed to have only few games? (1 year on)

84d ago ... [Update: This post had a mistake which said PS4 had about 40 disk based games after 1 year, but it had 77. It also said PS2 had about 75 disk based games but it had more than 136] 1 year ago I posted this article: http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/ranma1/524461 I feel so far its proven to be accurate. At the time I wrote the piece, the original PlaySta...

Would you play Browser Games?

84d ago ... In recent years, with the development of web technology, type of game has been varied again. There are quite a lot of browser games online, such as Shifu, Nightfalls, Dragon Atlas and Dawn of King. Instead of having to download the application or client of game, we merely need to open a web browser and install a plug-in maybe and then we can start playing straight away. Indeed, compared to m...

Do You Even Third-Party Exclusive, Bro?

84d ago ... So with some of the recent rumblings about third party exclusivity and such, I thought it would be a good idea to raise the general morale (and maybe upset the fanboys in the process...not that I'm doing that intentionally). Right, so, with the recent announcement of Street Fighter V as a PlayStation 4 console exclusive, gamers are more or less losing their minds in both good ways and bad. O...

The November NPD Report And What It Means For Xbox One And PS4

85d ago ... Each month gaming companies, gamers, and consumers anxiously await the monthly NPD report. This report provides tracking and analysis of U.S. gaming hardware and software sales and each month, fans of their respective consoles tout the results of the console that managed to top the sales charts in the U.S. For the past eleven months, the Playstation 4 has been the top selling console in the U.S...

The Gift of Gaming Gone Wrong?

85d ago ... I am a man on a mission. My goal is to convert as many of my relatives into gamers as possible. I need people to play with….and borrow games from. I never said this mission was altruistic. Like any good indoctrination scheme, my focus is on my younger family members. Their minds are there to be molded. Anyway, enough of the creepy backstory. I want to buy a gaming device for my niece who’s abou...

Console exclusivity and gamer hypocrisy

87d ago ... The big news to hit the Internet recently, is that Capcom's newly announced Street Fighter V will be exclusive to the PS4 and Windows PC. The mere mention of yet another high profile 3rd party IP getting the console exclusivity treatment has caused outrage amongst gamers. More specifically the Xbox crowd, who are outraged that a game from such a popular, previously multiplat franchise will b...

I Am Disappoint: Destiny Part 2

87d ago ... Why, hello there. Perhaps you may have noticed but, this is coming out much later than I would've liked. That's simply terrible, because by now discussion surrounding Destiny has most likely simmered to the point of me having to toss it in the microwave before anyone is interested in taking a bite again. So, as a nice little warm-up before I delve into my more constructive breakdown of the s...

Are Games Spreading the Idea of Violence?

88d ago ... Yesterday I have been reading a news from The Guardian, which was about the sale of the recently released video game Grand Auto Theft banned in Australia due to violence against women. I wouldn't discuss violence against women specifically because once it's violence it against all kind of people. The article wasn't too long but it raised a quite large controversial debate topic: is the idea vio...

My top 10 Ps1 games.

88d ago ... Considering this is the Playstation Anniversary, I decided to make a list of 10 games that I hold dearly in my heart and enjoyed so very much, I am sure opinions will differ when it comes to making such a list and I am sure there are many awesome games like those but to each his own :), most of those games in the list were loved equally. So lets begin with… 10-Syphon Filter (Ps1) What can...

Fight with your Dragon for Dragon Atlas

90d ago ... Dragon has long been one of the most popular themes for video games. Especially in those Western cultural based ones, "dragon" is often the important element in terms of the storyline and gameplay. What is special for this time is that there is a browser game which has also used "dragon" as its theme and feature. So let's take a look at 37Games' Dragon Atlas. The storyline of this game is base...

Ubisoft And Embargoes

92d ago ... Had a different, and totally reactionary blog I was going to post but changed my mind and couldn't delete it, so I'm changing it. I'm sure you've all heard of what Ubisoft is doing with The Crew and not allowing any reviews until launch. It follows what they've been doing with their games for awhile now and is completely wrong. I'm a fan of the Assassin's Creed series, always have been an...

Metal Gear Online, Episode 3: A New Hope

92d ago ... What a topical, if irrelevant, title :) Metal Gear Solid, for the most part, has always been about the singleplayer experience. Not until Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, did fans of the series see an introduction of a multiplayer element, and I’d say that it was still just an afterthought when compared to the main game. I had a friend that played the original Metal Gear Online when it came...

Are Multiplayer Features Ruining Games?

93d ago ... A question I've been asking myself lately after the many disappointments of this year. With 2014 almost at a close with only one more month to spare I got thinking back to all the big disappointments of the year, now at first I just assumed like many others believed that these recent disappointments were either because the game was hyped too much where the game wouldn't reach our expectations o...
