Mod Talk: More on GamerGate, Video Games, and N4G Submissions

127d ago ... First, let me say that there's been a lot of discussion on this and it's been very helpful. DragonKnight's blog was a good read and had a great number of replies that showed what people thought on the subject and really got to discussing how far GamerGate has come as it relates to video games, gamers, and the media in general. Having said that, let me get out of the way what the moderators...

Gaming Isn't Positive Anymore And It's Our Fault

128d ago ... For a lot of us, gaming is a pleasant getaway from daily minutia. We game whenever we get the time because, well, reality is pretty harsh and it's a great escape to have time to do something that isn't so productive. Some of us love gameplay, and some of us love a great story, stimulating puzzles, a great scare, an opportunity to be strategic, escape from reality, get competitive, or share our...

Gamer Culture: A Subject As Varied As Gamers Themselves

129d ago ... I'm not going to beat around the bush, this blog is sort of a response blog to the "No more Gamergate articles on N4G" blog posted by Admin Christopher, which you can read here. http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/christopher/531687 I'm not going to go in-depth about the blog so here's the gist of it. Gamergate articles aren't going to be allowed because some have the opinion that it's not about...

Is It Just My Perspective? | The Challenges of the First Person Game

132d ago ... The ways we look at a game are often as important as they ways we play them. Our own two eyes are the most powerful windows that we experience the worlds games developers attempt to immerse us in and the point of view they lend us can wreck or reward a game in a variety of ways. Games bombard us with visual aesthetics between first and third person shooters, from Bioshock Infinite to Uncharted....

What Not To Say To a (Girl) Gamer

132d ago ... It seems (some) guys need a brief refresher on how to talk to gamers that are also coincidentally female. I don’t like to separate genders when talking about gamers because we are all a united group of people who enjoy the same thing, but some of the stuff I’ve heard said to myself and other (girl) gamers is downright rude. Enjoy this list of things frequently said to female gamers with some ve...

The "No N3DS charger" debacle: My theory behind Nintendo's mistake.

133d ago ... UPDATE: Apparently, Nintendo has seen fit to prove my assertions correct: They have done it to cut down on the price, under the assumption that people would keep the charger from their old system, which shows their ignorance of trade-in policies. http://attackofthefanboy.com/news/new-nintendo-3ds-xl-will-come-no-ac-adapter-nintendo-explains/ So, yeah, original post follows, but I now fee...

The Season Pass

133d ago ... Gaming was once a simple concept; as a matter of fact, it was so long ago that video gaming was elementary, it feels more like a blurred memory or a dream you can't quite recall. I remember the straightforward task of heading to one's favourite rental store or video game distributor and finding the game you intended to purchase right there on the shelf. Of course, there were times where one mig...

GamerGate, Video Games, and N4G Submissions

133d ago ... To say that GamerGate is a touchy subject at this time in video games is kind of an understatement. It's a topic that is easily prone to differences of opinion as one's preferred choice in gaming platform, and it is about as likely to generate furor between those who disagree. Having said that, please read the following and understand how we intend to moderate GamerGate news on N4G. N4G ha...

December Design Contest (PS4!) Winners

135d ago ... Hey, guys! As you may or may not have gathered from my account status or by hanging out at the N4G water cooler, I'm out on maternity leave. But that doesn't mean we can't have design contest winners! (it just means they'll be announced this late ;)) The winner of the PS4 is..... IXA!!! THE CHOSEN ONES: FIVE winners will be chosen based on which entries we (HAVA staff) like best. :) T...

Work, Life, Video Games, and You. Finding the Balance.

136d ago ... Hello, everyone and Happy New Year! I am back to do some writing after a short hiatus. While I did intend on writing something up that was holiday related (in the same spirit as "Twas the Night Before Christmas" so there would be plenty of rhyming to be had), it was unfortunately not to be. Hopefully I will be able to write that up for later on this year. I regret not being able to actually wri...

How Video Games Changed My life

137d ago ... There is no doubt that we as gamers are affected and changed by video games. This issue most of the times blows down to the discussion that whether video games will turn gamers to racist pedophiliac rapist mass murderers or not, and it’s usually between people who know nothing about video games and those who do. I have nothing to add to this discussion, so this is not what I’m talking about. Ho...

On Critiquing Games And How Some Stances Or Ideologies Are Irrelevant

137d ago ... I have just finished reading an article that's here on N4G that claims to analyze Anita Sarkeesian's Strengths and Weaknesses within her Tropes vs. Women in Video Games series and there is a recurring theme. That theme is the idea of feminist critique. I thought I'd talk about that and other forms of critique but let's think about feminist critique shall we? What is feminist critiquing? Well...

Too Many Side Quests?

138d ago ... Shigeru Miyamoto recently released some new information about the upcoming Zelda game that some people might find exciting, or may deter some people from playing it. He said, “There may even be times where you forget what your goal is because you’re doing other things on the side.” This is nothing new in the history of Zelda games, which always feature fun and entertaining side quests that earn...

New Nintendo Console Incoming? You Don't Say!

139d ago ... Recently, a lot of news has been pouring in about Nintendo, and for what seems like the first time in a (really) long time, it's all positive. The 3DS is undeniably any gamer's Master Sword of a system, and the Wii U has finally become "the little console that CAN!" - as its fortunes have almost completely shifted direction for the better. Case in point, both of Nintendo's systems and their com...

Gaming Graphics In The Past, Present & Future

142d ago ... Every generation brings us the promise of catchphrases in the form of photorealistic and so real you can touch them… But what do gaming graphics and the latest consoles really mean to the hobby itself? This generation, more than any before it, people are noticing more and more of the visual aspects related to the titles they play. 1080p, 900p, 720p and framerates all at the forefront of a games...

Until Dawn | My Prayers Have Been Answered

144d ago ... Growing up, I always had an insatiable fascination with experiencing a horror movie in an interactive fashion. Whether that be being cast as an actor in a horror film or experiencing a true horror story in video game form. I don't mean supernatural or undead like The Evil Within or The Walking Dead; I mean a gritty, serial killer-esque thematic on par with the Halloween franchise. As a younger...
