In-Depth E3 Predictions

48d ago ... E3 is just a few days away and so I will now make my predictions for the Big 3. (bear in mind that, while this is well-researched, it still includes my opinion which, like yours and mine and everyone else’s, doesn’t really matter) Nintendo: I thought Nintendo actually had the best conference last year and that's ironic considering they didn't even make an actual, physical appearance at t...

You're ruining Metal Gear Solid 5 for me, Konami.

48d ago ... Metal Gear Solid has been my all time favorite franchise. It has a charm that bends realistic historical events with fantasy super powered beings. It makes you think beyond it's convoluted yet intelligent plot by touching real world issues that drives the narrative. Also, not to forget about the addictive and fun stealth gameplay the series offers especially in a time where you don't see many l...

Mod Talk: A Few Notes on Submission Rules

48d ago ... Hello everyone. I am in the process of doing many a thing, one of them working on putting together some blog posts that will expand on and explain further our rules as they relate to submissions and comments. Sadly, I do not have all my time to devote to just this, so they are not ready yet. But, I wanted to step in here and make some clarifications on a few items we've recently had a lot...

Are Developers Getting Lazy or Did the Current Generation Arrive too Early?

48d ago ... As someone who started gaming back when Atari was a big deal - I've owned almost every single machine to come out. It was no shock to my wife when the latest Xbox and PS4 came out that I was right there on day one money in hand to pick up the latest shiny pieces of gaming joy. At first - my enthusiasm for the new systems was at an all time high but has since begun to wane with indifference w...

What I Hope For From Rory McIlroy PGA Tour

48d ago ... So around a month to go until the first current-gen golf game gets released and this year it has a new cover star! Rory McIlroy is coming to the cover. Details of the game have been few and far between, and with the delay from June to 14 July, details are still hard to find. So what better way to get the juices flowing than by getting a wish list combined with what we do know. So first...

PS3 "A Better Value Than Wii U"?

50d ago ... Today I was shopping around at a local Walmart, when it dawned on me! The Wii U cost $300, while the PS3 was $150, then I started to really think about that...Then it hit me! The PS3 actually offers a better value then the "next gen" Nintendo Wii U. I must be crazy.. Right? When I went to the game aisle, I could not believe what I saw, a scarce Wii U game library with a lot of the same game...

Is It You Or Is It Just Me?

50d ago ... There's probably been a time when all of feel like we're out of the loop. There's just that game we don't understand that everyone else seems to love to death. We want to get involved with the crowd, to feel like one of the popular kids on the block. We often make the effort to understand what our gaming passions drive our friends and family that we lack. Nevertheless, there are many times that...

Console Memories

50d ago ... Have you ever had one of those days where you look back and fondly remember the best consoles you have ever played when you were little? Say you were around 8 or so and your parents got you an awesome console like a PS1 or SNES or even a Genesis. I can remember every home console i've owned/played since i was a little kid, ranging from the Sega Genesis all the way up till now. Allow me to take...

E3, a time to dream - What is your final fantasy?

51d ago ... As I took my niece and nephew to their weekly aquatic debacle, a.k.a. their swimming lesson, I couldn't help but think about E3. It is looming over us and we are drowned in speculations (much like my nephew who couldn't stay afloat to save his life) and early reveals that leaves us all baffled. Is the best yet to come? Are they reaching out to a new audience beyond the legion of gamers and inv...

How Polygon Dun Goofed

53d ago ... I'm only speaking for myself here but I expect my gaming media to come from people that, you know, actually have an interest in games. Polygon doesn't seem to care about it at all though. Whoever does the hiring at Polygon seems to be looking for pseudo-intellectual hipsters who walk around acting like their flatulence doesn't produce noxious fumes that would incapacitate Krillin from Dragonbal...

Borderlands The Pre-Sequel: The Jack of Hearts

53d ago ... We’ve all killed Handsome Jack by now. We’ve killed him with a swift shotgun strike right between the eyes, a plasma-infused punch to the jaw, and even a thrown rotary saw-blade to the chest. In the context of the communities collective playtime, Jack has died hundreds of thousands of deaths, and each one of them has been more cynically enjoyable than the last. Jack’s demise was relieving, h...

54d ago ... Did you know that the first week in June is National Fishing Week? No? Okay, well now you know. Any complaints about it can be emailed to me next week during National Email Week. I'm not kidding, that's really a thing. But, while you wait to email me your complaints next week, here are the winners of our May Contests! THE $50 COMMENTS: 4 Winners, a $50 Amazon gift card each!

Does the Last of Us play with the form more than we give it credit for?

55d ago ... The main complaint that critics and players aim at the Last of Us is that it doesn’t do anything new with the genre or medium. It’s always characterized as a game that perfectly executes an old formula of game design without bringing anything new to the table. Like the narrative and the gameplay are oil and water. This is true for the majority of the game, but there are some really crucial mome...

What Could Sony Do To Make Consumers Happy At E3?

57d ago ... With E3 just a hop away, Sony is likely finalizing announcements for their press conference. It's been a little while since I've written a blog and I'm feeling that a modest contribution to N4G's content is never a bad thing. So here are some things I'd like to see announced at E3. I'll break it into news for 2015 and 2016, as well as niche and megaton announcements. Keep in mind, I won't be di...

58d ago ... E3 is right around the corner and June is one of the biggest months for us gamers to talk about all the new information (or lack thereof). So, get out there and talk! Because this month we're selecting 10 comment winners... The $50 COMMENTS – TEN WINNERS! Each comment you make on N4G during June on any story, blog, user review, forums – ANYTHING = 1 entry. Comment 25 times? 25 entries...

The Importance of Being an Omnigamer

59d ago ... It's easy to pick a platform and form brand loyalty. It's cheaper, it's saves space under your TV, it's easier to keep track of new games releasing and it's just plain fun to join in on the fanboy/girl platform wars. http://i.imgur.com/B5kLr9R.png But I'm here to do the unpopular thing and tell you that you are failing as a gamer if you do this. Not only are you missing out on some of...

Force Fading

59d ago ... I grew up on the tail end of a nebulous timeline in regards to laying claim to “my Star Wars.” Well-known directors of Hollywood and my dad could bring up their memories of seeing the original (pre “Episode IV-A New Hope” inclusion) for the first time in theaters back in the day; past that, the early 80’s continued with successive sequels and spin-off cartoons. The only media from that era I...

Compelled to Collect

60d ago ... Human beings love to collect things and that’s no great secret. Our enthusiasm for collecting has even become a form of entertainment itself in the form of the TV show “Hoarders”. It would really be awesome if they found someone who was hoarding DVD copies of that show. That would be sublime. In videogames, the theme of collecting is pervasive. We want to collect all the coins in Mario, we wan...

What Makes More Sense 1080p @ 30 or 720p @ 60fps?

61d ago ... This is kind of a trick question because it all depends on how you look at things. Gamers these days I don’t think understand either. Someone ask me this the other day so I thought I would explain, so let’s start with the basic’s - resolution is important because it determines how good the picture will look./ More pixels mean better detail. (even though sometimes is hard to tell the differe...

Do You Even Care About What Was Lost With The Removal Of P.T.?

61d ago ... How did this even happen, it’s like so crazy. One minute I was enjoying the best Horror demo game I ever played, and the next minute Hideo Kojima was leaving Konami, and the Silent Hill game we thought we would be getting, disappeared in the wind. I don’t think anything can replace what this game was going to be, nothing can match it’s intense feel and amazing design. For the first time ever...
