The Endless Debate

120d ago ... Every time a small piece of information regarding technical specifications of a future multi platform title surfaces, fan boys spring out of the wood work for a chance to analyse this new data and find new ways to bash, rage, praise, hate, love their platform of choice and or its direct competitor depending on the sentiment. Let's take a look at the biggest highs and lows of each platform an...

My thoughts on the Pokemon and the upcoming remakes

120d ago ... Well personally I'm a big fan of Pokémon games, I started playing them around the age of 5 or 6 years old and I've been hooked ever since! It's nice to be able to just pick up a DS, or Gameboy whatever you play it on, then just sit down and play some nice, casual Pokémon. The first Pokémon game I ever played was Pokémon Ruby so I have nostalgic feelings for that Gen of Pokémon, then when I f...

Video Games Are Like A Bag Of Chips!?!

120d ago ... No, I don't mean "you can't eat just one". I can fondly recall, when I was just a wee lad of about 5 years of age, getting excited as I put my hard earned and long saved change into a vending machine for a bad of chips. As I pulled the top apart, chips would just fly out all over the place. The bag was filled to overflowing with potato chips. Those were the good ol' days. Where you actually....

Nintendo's Biggest Issue with Third-Parties IS Nintendo

121d ago ... Yes, you read that correctly. As we all know — third-parties haven't played well with Nintendo, for quite a while now; over 20 years to be exact. Yes — it's been THAT long. Every generation, it seems to be the same old story; Nintendo announces new system with a myriad of the tried-&-true exclusives and only a handful of (decent) third-party titles to accompany them. While their handheld...

A possible effect Microsoft needs to be mindful of

122d ago ... Like a man beating a dead horse I am going to write about the Tomb Raider deal. I am not a huge believer in writing about something that nearly every publication or users has already written about. But I feel one aspect of the deal is being overlooked; the one company that has the most to lose out in the deal is not Square Enix but Microsoft. Microsoft is no stranger to buying timed/exclusiv...

LittleBigPlanet: Stunted by a poor financial model

122d ago ... LittleBigPlanet has been somewhat of a successful series for Sony and they have just unveiled their newest title in the series, LittleBigPlanet 3, for the PS3 and PS4. From October 2008 to January 2013 8 million user generated levels were created and published [1]. I am proudly a creator of two of those 8 million levels even though those levels were nothing compared to some of the amazing creat...

Under the Knife: Public Relations Failure and Fan Outrage

122d ago ... Despite the overwhelming press that Rise of the Tomb Raider got last week, the aftershock is still being felt. It has now been confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be a timed exclusive for the Xbox brand and not a complete exclusive that was being touted in the first twenty-four hours of this news. A lot of people have calmed down from this revelation, but there is still residual resentm...

3 Platform Future: Sony + Conlusion

123d ago ... Sony has made all the right moves with the PlayStation 4 thus far, and the PlayStation brand is the strongest of the big 3 when considering all time console sales. There’s little for me to comment on regarding Sony’s future in the gaming industry. Their $380 million dollar purchase of Gaikai, and upcoming features such as SharePlay on PS4 shows their future in the gaming industry is in the...

Rage of the Tomb Raider and Why You Should Care.

123d ago ... I don't like exclusives. I don't mean the games themselves but the fact that they are limited to one system. Exclusives are made, and thought up primarily to sell the system they're made for. The direct implication of the console manufacturer into the development process is often a positive thing as the game is better optimized and takes full advantage of the hardware at it's disposal. Also som...

The Titan One device makes modded controllers obsolete for gamers looking for a competitive edge and game controller customization. What's a Titan One? ConsoleTuner is proud to introduce the next generation of game controller adapter with a user customizable device designed to p...

No Man's Sky Theory

124d ago ... I've been following this game closely since it was first announced, and I've also been following the reactions of interested gamers who were attracted to the notion of the 'infinite'. I too was interested but also had concerns regarding the idea of a randomly generated universe. Could it end up being chaotic? Could it lead to uninteresting gameplay? What's the point of an endless universe and p...

An Open Letter to Microsoft and Square Enix

125d ago ... To: Microsoft Cc: Square Enix/Crystal Dynamics Dear Microsoft, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics, Considering that this is in fact an open letter, and will be ready by many others, allow me to take a moment to preface this and state for the record that I hold no single platform or console at a higher regard than any other on the market today. I am indeed a neutral party and this is a neut...

The Pre-Order Fallout

125d ago ... In the fairly recent past, getting a new game at launch was not a guarantee. If there was a large heavily publicized game on the horizon, you had to pre-order to ensure that you got a copy at launch or face scalper fees if you could not wait for the “re-up”. This was bad for a number of reasons. As a gamer, you bought the game on faith or based on early impressions (trailers/Demos/Magazine prev...

GTA V: A Better Game Than TLOU?

125d ago ... Now I'll start by saying I'm not here to rustle any feathers, I'm not a fanboy, or a troll, I just feel on N4G at least, there's a very large % of people who were disappointed with GTA and it stirs something in me, I feel like I'm unplugged from the Matrix or something and everyone else is not able to see the truth of the situation ( Quite an extreme and arrogant example I know ) I'm not going...

COD AW looks great but is just another lag fest.

126d ago ... With Activision finally making the jump to next gen I have been waiting for those magical words everyone wants to hear - dedicated servers. But, looks like COD is in the P2P hosting business for the duration. That means all your superb games and high K/D ratio mean exactly nothing. Not saying you don't have skill, but you don't know if the guy on the other end is shooting first and dying f...

The best demo I have ever played

127d ago ... "Originally we were thinking of making a game that would make you pee your pants, but at this point we've changed our minds, and now we're aiming for a game that will make you shit your pants". -Kojima Horror seemed to have been a forgotten genre. Resident Evil veered off the left, Dead Space started in the right direction but ultimately caved in to a more action game, Alan Wake was disappo...

The Sims 4 Demo Impressions

128d ago ... Since its announcement in May of last year, I've been avidly looking forward to the launch of The Sims 4. As some may know, my history with The Sims dates back to the launch of the first game and my relationship with the franchise has been quite the rollercoaster of emotions. Between the greed of Electronic Arts and the crumbling of Maxis, which seems to have been rebuilt, for a while, I wasn't...

Sony didn't need to win Gamescom; They have already won 2014

128d ago ... Today I saw two different strategies when comparing Microsoft to Sony and their approach to gamescom. Microsofts announcements were more aimed at selling more xbox ones, particularly in europe This was done by really bringing the hype for the big guns Fifa - Cod - Halo MCC/5 beta - Quantum Break - Fable - AC:U - Tomb Raider. The Fifa stuff was pretty pointless because we know of legends...

New Indie Projects to Check Out

129d ago ... Hello, everyone! It's been a good while since I wrote up something here. I have been sick for awhile and haven't had the opportunity to really focus on writing. For those of you I have messaged about doing an upcoming blog on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, I can assure you that I will get to that this month. You're help and opinions are very much appreciated. I also have been told about some t...
