The popularity of the AAA FPS has more to do with the AAA, and less to do with the FPS

Everyone seems to think that FPS and action games are the only genres that can be successful... Comments(23)

Will Metal Gear Online cross into the Phantom Pain's story?

79d ago ... I don't know if this is news to anyone, but I can't help but ponder this question, especially after coming across rather convincing evidence after a recent re-viewing of the red-band trailer for Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain. A long while ago, when the first real trailer for Phantom Pain released, many people noted that there was a third, unseen character in the opening scene. As doctors...

Bromance

80d ago ... February is upon us and what better way to honor the month of romance by doing a blog about the best videogame love stories. Unfortunately, before you snuggle up with your girlfriend in front of the fire to read my Valentine’s Day blog (on whatever smart device you two will be sharing), I’m going to have to get my testosterone levels up...now it was either this or eating tons of red meat and I...

Breaking News! GTA Online Isn't Fun Anymore

80d ago ... Well, I already know what most of you are thinking. You're either rolling your eyes or pursing your lips at a potentially inane opinion regarding last year's most anticipated title's online component. I must confess, despite the headline, I still play Grand Theft Auto Online regularly, but more often than not, I find myself yawning after about half an hour. Grand Theft Auto Online simply isn...

N4G 'Gamer Type' Quiz

82d ago ... A study conducted at Cambridge College - directly north of Boston, Massachusetts - determined that not only do video games provide psychological stimulation, but that there are four different types of gamer personas that individuals embody; sometimes one more than another, sometimes a mixture of any or all of the four and sometimes strictly the same persona. In 2013, Dr. Ort-Meyer (docket NC...

Sony, We Need To Talk

82d ago ... I was just reading the article here on N4G where Sony said they don't expect the Vita to sell as much as the PSP and I was pretty disgusted. It's the inspiration for this blog and I will cover a few things I am either disappointed about with Sony, or what I would like to see them do. Sony, you need to stop half-a$$ing your handhelds. If you don't intend to throw your full weight behind a han...

A Month In Review: The Top Gaming Stories In January

83d ago ... Hello fellow gamers! Welcome to "A Month In Review". I'm going to be going through the top gaming stories this month and give a brief description on what it's about and lay down some of my opinions on it. I am going to be doing the top 11 stories, so let's go. Also the list is in the order of 'Hottest Stories' so it caters more to the users of N4G. -Specs For Nintendo’s Next-Gen Systems Surf...

New indie Kickstarter project: Distro Horizons VS Galaximo's Army

83d ago ... I'm not one for plugging Kickstarter projects, but I like the concept for this game so figured I'd bring it to everyone's attention. I will say this however, Distro Horizons VS Galaximo's Army is currently in a pre-alpha build, so much of what is available on the games Kickstarter page is for demonstration and proof of concept purposes only. My blog here is intended to fill you in on some de...

Tales of Genderillia

83d ago ... It is said that there are only two stories in the world...a stranger came to the village and the villagers venture out and meet a stranger. Tales of Xillia had been an interesting journey, to say the least. After almost a week of reflection, I've found it surprising what had and hadn't stuck with me. Most notably, it seems, I'm still reflecting on how it had subverted the accepted Male/Femal...

Terror vs. Terrible: Horror returns to the mainstream

83d ago ... As per usual, we have a lot of horror titles to be excited for in 2014, but what makes this year particularly special is the fact that we're finally seeing a true return to form for a genre that lost it's way in the loudest corner of gaming culture. Last Year, I believe, I became exponentially excited about an indie game that was green-lit on Steam, tearing through every little drop of infor...

How To Get Better At FPS Games

85d ago ... The concrete debris cracked mercilessly beneath your rugged combat boots as you ran, taking in a deep breath - or at least you tried. You coughed as your lungs, appalled, tried to expel the unhealthy pollutants. The air was clogged full of ash and dust, if you hadn't known better, it would seem that someone had pounded a truck-full of chalk and exploded it into this room. Or perhaps some nearby...

Tomb Raider Xbox One and PS4 Graphical Differences

85d ago ... The internet lit up like a neon Christmas tree recently with the revelation of a framerate disparity between Tomb Raider on the Xbox One and the PS4. Whether you jiggle furiously with percentages or not, there is no doubt that the PS4 has higher framerates and looks more fluid. Numerous articles and numerous posts have debated the framerate to such an extent that something glaringly obvious has...

Taking a macroscopic look at micro-transactions

85d ago ... I initially had this topic more geared towards being just a light-hearted rant in the vein of a Christmas-themed carol or children’s story for the December contests, but perhaps it’s for the better that I dive into this on a more serious note the first time I’m presenting it. Even though I’ve seen this new nickel-and-dime scheme in recent console titles, I wasn’t really hot and bothered by it...

My Kickstarter Nightmare: Soul Saga Edition

85d ago ... UPDATE: created a thread on NeoGAF earlier this evening it's gotten quite a few responses, both sides of the fence, but still quite a civil discussion going on: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=759617 ----- So today I was banned from the Soul Saga (DisasterCake) forum ; http://forums.disastercake.com/ This came as a surprise since I'm generally a quiet and fair memb...

Nintendo Should Revive the Gamecube Controller with Smash Bros Wii U

86d ago ... Super Smash Bros Wii U and Mario Kart 8 are the two premier titles Nintendo is set to launch on the Wii U later this year. In case you haven't heard, the Wii U isn't exactly selling all that well. Nintendo was forced to cut their sales estimates by more than 6 million for the system. Many have written articles with recommendations for "saving Nintendo" and "turning around the Wii U," but I'd...

Nintendo hate is out of hand.

86d ago ... Over the past few years it seems Nintendo is getting a lot of hate and criticism. From claims that Nintendo "releases the same Ip" to "Nintendo games are for kids". Lets cut to the chase, Nintendo releases one major Zelda/Mario/fire emblem/ every other game pretty much once or twice per console. What I want to know is why is it not okay for the big N to do this but is perfectly fine to have a l...

A "Back In The Day" Kinda Blog

86d ago ... Taking a look at the gaming industry today, you couldn't say that there was ever a time that it was bigger; at least demographically. In many ways, it's a good thing that gaming is as big as it is today. There is still a stigma about it, but it carries far less weight than it used to. Many differing themes and styles exist, all coming from new minds with new ideas and new ways of improving on t...

Bioshock 1 makes every player out to be a fool no matter what

87d ago ... At the start of the first Bioshock game you crash land in the Atlantic, not properly knowing who you are or why you've crashed. You know you're not quite a 'faceless protagonist' though - you see family photos, you're a smoker. You are meant to be a fixed 'somebody' not just 'anybody'. Similarly, in Bioshock Infinite, you are somebody. you can even see your own reflection early on. In bot...

Why We're NOT Screwed Even If We Don't Buy an Xbox One

87d ago ... Admittedly, this blog post is long overdue yet the combination of real life obligation and the painful surgery work I've had done on my jaw made it increasingly difficult to get my head in the mindset. Couple that with the ever growing mountain of turd piling on Microsoft's head and you have an entry that needed to adjusted again and again. My first blog was titled 'Why we're screwed even if...
