Was There A Video Game Renaissance?

3DS: The Moses of the JRPG genre

55d ago ... For those who didn't attend Sunday school or perhaps never saw Prince of Egypt, Moses was a Biblical character who led a few million Hebrew slaves out of Egypt and into their promised land full of milk, honey, and...well, full of not being a slave anymore, too. It's an iconic story in Western culture of how one brave man led a nation to a better place. I figure I might as well get the explan...

Xbox One is doing just fine

56d ago ... Lately, there's been a lot of negative news about the Xbox One. One point however, seems to imply that the Xbox One is selling poorly, especially in comparison to the PS4. There are knee-jerk reactions from some people, saying things like "MS needs a price drop immediately", or "MS should stop including Kinect with Xbox One". However, when you look at the actual numbers, things are looking v...

For The Love of Life

57d ago ... Okay, so I missed the deadline for the Valentine Day’s special blog but in my defense, I had issues to deal with. So as I type this as fast as I can to make up for lost time, allow me to skip the pleasantries and the pseudo-intellectual rabble that I saddle you with, usually. Love is a difficult subject…oh hell, forget it. I’m just going to list the best romance stories that I (in my humble...

TitanFall's Bots (And 4 of its Criticisms)

58d ago ... One of the most controversial addition to TitanFall are its bots. I've noticed criticism for their inclusion, but also some confusion about their role and how they are utilized. Further, they are also the source of deeper criticisms involving player count and Respawn's ability to design a game with good A.I. I aim to look at four of these criticisms centered around the inclusion of bots, and...

HD and Next-Gen. Why are our games still sub-HD?

59d ago ... This is going to be my first post on here, so bear with me and I'll try not to ramble too much. I've seen many discussions in the past that are full of arguments about resolution this and fps that, but I decided to put this together after reading through a recent post about The Order: 1886. With the next-gen upon us, many people are wondering why we are still seeing resolution and fps number...

Read before you write - an essential practice

59d ago ... I'll touch on the ice cream sandwich soon enough. Most of us would probably agree that game journalism in general is not quite where it should be. Some might even say it's mostly bad. I know I would. But if we more or less agree on the problem, could we come together on a solution? If I were to abridge my suggestion to improve the culture surrounding video game writing as much as possible...

Is Anonymity the problem?

60d ago ... Ever wonder if you knew the person you were talking to you would respond differently? Does anonymity create a barrier to be honest and respectful? Would we take more time and thought in our replies for example? How do you keep privacy and safety in place while making people more accountable for their actions? Sure they can ban you, mark your posts for infractions but what if we took away the...

What is Innovation? And does it matter?

60d ago ... While some think the Wii U gamepad and Kinect 2.0 are excellent features to the consoles, some think that they should be optional, and follow in the footsteps of the PS4, which supports Off-TV play and motion control separately. I agree and disagree. It was the right move for Sony to let people get more Innovation out of there console at a different price, and simply let us pay a cheaper price...

FUN Censors TotalBiscuit's Guise Of The Wolf Review

60d ago ... Well, here we go again, only it’s Day One: Garry’s Incident times ten. Many people on N4G would at least have an understanding of who TotalBiscuit, AKA The Cynical Brit (real name John Bain), is. His YouTube channel, The Cynical Brit, is probably THE PC gaming channel on YouTube, with well over one million subscribers and a very large fan base. He commentates a lot of Starcraft 2 and MLG eve...

Remastered Titles and The Gamers They Anger

61d ago ... With the announcement of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Rayman: Legends for next gen systems, gamers everywhere chose sides and voiced their opinions. Either glad titles like this, that they missed last gen, were being remastered and rereleased... or angry that developers weren't spending their time on new next gen games. At the beginning of every consoles life, comes a dry period. Wher...

Final Fantasy VI, Yoshinori Kitase, Final Fantasy XVI

61d ago ... Let's keep asking Yoshinori Kitase, the director of Final Fantasy VI, to direct Final Fantasy XVI. Make the game mechanic exactly like VI and the visual look as good as Agni Philosophy tech Demo. The Story, I'm actually fine if they just reuse VI story as in "Final Fantasy XVI a Final Fantasy VI remake". Some would suggest XVI should be a "new game" and I would ask "what would that "new game" b...

The "Final" Fantasy of Square Enix?

61d ago ... According to IGN and a recent interview, Yoshinori Kitase told Videogamer that Final Fantasy 15 is a "very high priority within the company." However he also reassured us that this game will not be taking precedence over Kindom Hearts 3. Even though it's going to come out before Kingdom Hearts 3. Really Square? Kingdom Hearts has a huge fan base. I'd include myself but I'm a reporter. Gotta...

The Identity of N4G

62d ago ... I've been a part of News4Gamers, a.k.a N4G, since Aug. 17, 2007. That means a long time; not the longest but long enough. I've been here for the Open Zone and the original fanboy trolls that no longer post here. When you've been here long enough, or possibly lurk here long enough without joining, you'll see a common statement made these days. "Screw this site, it's filled with Sony fanboys"...

Finding Hope with Grand Theft Auto Online

62d ago ... For those who follow my contributions or those who keep up with daily blogs, you'll remember my submission two weeks ago where I discussed Grand Theft Auto Online and its dwindling fun factor. I'm proud - and very surprised - to admit that today, I've discovered a newfound appreciation for the online community and I'm finding hope with Grand Theft Auto Online. Rockstar Games released a new c...

Left Behind: Ellie And Riley

62d ago ... WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD ... ... You have been warned: It took me about 3 1/2 hours to complete on hard and I enjoyed 99.9% of it with major reservations for that .1%. I'll get to that but first 'the beginning'. It was fitting that they started with a montage of scenes from the full game, it immediately reminded us of who Ellie had become. When the Ellie and Joel cut-scene finished and you...

An open letter [of thanks] to Indies on Wii U...

62d ago ... This is something that has been rolling around in my mind for quite a while, now, but for ages, I haven't really had a push to deliver it in any solid form on any place where most devs could see it, like on a public forum. The recent delay of Watch Dogs on the Wii U has given me that push that I needed to finally come out and say what I should have said since I first bought Nano Assault Neo....

Mark your calendars : The day Mistermediax and his dreams shall end or come to fruition

Hey there n4g this is my first blog so go easy on me :p Ok so let's begin am sure many of you should have hear or/and entertain yourselves once in a while in the craziness that is http://misterxmedia.livejournal.com/. If you're weren't of this crazy guy or (genius) if he's right come july and further into this year, he's the crazy Xbox fanboy responsible for the rumours arou...

Will "dem casuals" ever buy a console again?

64d ago ... A prevailing attitude in this day and age is that the casual ship has sailed. The Wii was a blip. Smartphones will rule the day. Why would they buy a console when they have a smartphone? Etcetera. But I don't think that's exactly true. I think dem casuals are still a huge, untapped market that is eager to jump back into console gaming. The problem is that the console manufacturers have eithe...

Former glory

64d ago ... I'll make this short, mostly because I don't speak english actually. Need For Speed and Dragon Age, two completely different games. These two were the first to come to mind, but I'm sure there are a lot of games, juste like these two. They are great titles. At least they were... once. I feel that a lot of games have lost their touch somewhat. Sometimes they try to restore it, but it rarely w...
