Is the only option left for Nintendo is to be different?

146d ago ... Nintendo, while still being a powerhouse when it comes to software and the dedicated portable market, seems to have pigeon-holed themselves into a corner when it comes to console gaming. The downward spiral dated back to the N64 days and Sony's smash entry the first Playstation. It truly was revolutionary at the time. A time when Nintendo had strained relationships with third party publishers,...

My top 11 PS2 games.

147d ago ... Playstation 2 is one of those consoles that was just a juggernaut of its own even though the Gamecube and the original Xbox had slightly better graphics however nothing rivaled it in terms of sheer amount of games and variety it had and it came with a built in DVD player so that was cool for the time. With the great amount of time I had with it I wanted to show my top 11 for my favorite console...

What is up with number 3?

148d ago ... Sequels are really hard to make because the developers works harder to make a better game while retaining the charm of the first game but sometimes when a sequel becomes really good and way better than the first. Developers think about making a third one which either fails to impress because of the high bar the second game sets or never gets released and on rare occasions it becomes the best...

Why Nintendo quality dominated 2014 quantity

150d ago ... I must preface this article by saying I am in no way a Nintendo fanboy. I have openly mocked Nintendo on many occasions in the past and this article is as fair and impartial as I can make it. As we ring in 2015, I can't help but chuckle at Nintendo's complete dominance of 2014. I never saw it coming, and if you are being honest with yourself, you didn't either. I am of course talking about q...

The GamerGate Harassment Stories the Media DOESN'T Want You to Know About.

150d ago ... You know, it’s hard to believe that a movement is not about misogyny and hatred and pushing females out of the industry when all you get to hear out of the media that has been implicated in the GamerGate saga is the cherry picked stories that they use to vilify an entire group. How many times have we had Brianna Wu, or Zoe Quinn, or Anita Sarkeesian, their issues they’ve had with trolls and...

Playing Games with Your Girlfriend or Boyfriend

152d ago ... I am single...for the moment but I had experience dealing with the issues of my girlfriend and games. The problem was that my gf didn't want me to spend much time playing game but on her, such as going out (shopping mostly), watching TV series (that I didn't want to watch) or even talking to her (on telephone sometimes T_T). Actually this had been annoying me so much as I was kinda forced to...

When would e-sports show up in Olympics?

154d ago ... Today a story about “video games and Olympics” was published on the BBC news website. According to the story, the creator of Blizzard’s World of Warcraft claimed that competitive video gaming (e-sport) should be included in the Olympic Games as video games are well positioned to be a spectator sport. With the improving quality and technology of video games, now this has become a huge indust...

Lets sniff some glue 1: Square Enix edition

154d ago ... Square Enix CEO gets on the platform at the Playstation event after making a long trip from Japan just to announce 1 game. Shows FF7 logo. Everyone's excited... Reveals the 9000th port of FF7, but wait this time its a PC port. So "Preez be excited" (at that moment he knows he just trolled everyone like a boss). All this just shows Square Enix is out of touch with gamers and its own fans. Nex...

Christmases of Gaming Past

155d ago ... While I was watching my niece and nephew play Minecraft over these past few weeks, I couldn't help but look back at how gaming has changed as I helped them explore and build. The first gaming device my family ever had was an original pong system that was hooked up to a small nine inch black and white television via alligator clips connected to a UHF receiver. To play against each other we w...

Gaming Under Relative Adversity

157d ago ... The holidays are a time to spend with you loved ones, the ones nearest and dearest to your heart – PS4, XB1, 3DS, PC etc – whatever your poison. Every year, I have grand designs to use my little free time to put in some serious gaming, particularly of the RPG variety. However, year after year, I have my quality time invaded upon by; you guessed it – my relatives. No, I don’t care about what yo...

A Very Dreamcasty Christmas

161d ago ... I’m sure that we all have great memories from past holidays. For me, personally, my best gaming Christmas memory goes back to 1999. This was the year that I got a Dreamcast. I know a lot of people are tired of hearing about how awesome the Dreamcast was, but the fact remains that it was a joy to own. For those who never owned a Sega console, it represented a slightly different experience from t...

Personal Identity And Gaming

161d ago ... This blog is one that asks you a simple question. When playing games, do you identify yourself as the character you play, or do you simply take on the role of the character you are playing with all of their own unique traits and characteristics? To understand more of what I'm talking about, it would do you some good to watch these 2 videos that reference a study that states that most gamers...

Return of JRPGs:Xensosaga, Dark Cloud, Shadow Hearts, Suikoden

161d ago ... This blog will look at how it really IS possible to revive extinct video game series, so long as there is a will on part of the gamers. Shadow Hearts is a video game series which ended in 2006 due to the publisher who owns the Shadow Hearts Intellectual Property going bankrupt. Dark Cloud and Suikoden are other series which have virtually become extinct as the publishers have shown no interest...

Remasters: You're Doing it Wrong

164d ago ... This generation, we're getting more than a handful of remasters. No really, as thin as game cases are these days, you probably wouldn't be able to hold them all in one hand comfortably, gamers with original XBOX Duke controller hands withstanding. Anyway, we've been getting a lot of them these days and it's gone from mild to shamefully shameless. Granted, the lot of them have been remasters...

My New Year's Gaming Resolutions

164d ago ... Another year has gone by which means that it’s time for some non-sober reflection on the past year(s). This reflection usually births some sort of determination to change things and to do better in the coming year. So this year, from a gaming standpoint, I want to share some of these resolutions. Can people really change? Probably not, but it’s good to dream. Fear of Commitment I still ha...

Brendan's Blog: Salty Esports

164d ago ... We all saw the Twitter feud between Leffen and Chillindude that started with the discussion of who should be considered "Smash Gods". We also saw Westballz and Hax go at it too. All this salt and BM (bad manners) are a major part of eSports, but what does it do to the reputation of the community? In my opinion, I love seeing BM in eSports because it brings in drama and drama brings in viewer...

Oversensitivity and Social Statements

165d 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

166d 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

168d 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

170d 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...
