Can Horror co-operate?

14d ago ... Recently details have surfaced over the latest entry in the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil Revelations 2, a lot of the details where very promising minus 1 thing that stood out the most. The fact that it has co-op, now as soon as a lot of people read that their hope for a good old school RE game was dashed and replaced with a strong dislike that it is now co-op and feel it is now ruined....

Gaming Culture Suffers From Institutionalized Amnesia

15d ago ... First Scenario: The year is 198X, you're a young boy or girl who's come to know video games and love what you've experienced. You have friends that have a Nintendo Entertainment System just like you and every day after school, and on the weekends, you try to convince your parents to let you play some video games, or to go over to your friends house so you can play them there. You finished your...

Don't Allow "GamerGate" to be Derailed

17d ago ... This whole thing should have been over a week ago. All the major sites involved had to do was a give a statement on what had actually been going on the last couple weeks. Establish some rules for their writers to keep things professional with developers (that WAS the problem here. Not feminism, not harassment, not any of that) and things could have gone back to normal, more or less. Hell, Ko...

Finally, The Final Fantasy! Are Square Enix Capable?

21d ago ... Would news of a truly final, final fantasy, be something to be happy about or something to feel sadness towards. Throughout its history, final fantasy has given us not only some of the greatest rpg's of all time, from fan favourites such as final fantasy VII to cult classics like final fantasy tactics, and of course what some say is the greatest of them all, final fantasy VI! It has also given...

My top 10 Games in a franchise last gen.

22d ago ... Choosing a top 10 on such a topic was really hard because some of those franchises had a sequel or a prequel that is just as good . So let begin with ... 10-Mass Effect (Ps3,360,Pc) While alot of people will say Mass effect 2 was the best in the series , for me this was the best , the level mechanics , getting exp from enemies rather than finishing a part then get a bunch of exp , it just w...

Dear Luke Plunkett: Don't Pretend You Aren't A Part Of The Problem

22d ago ... Gaming journalism sites are still, quite rightly, reeling over the backlash they've received over the whole 5 Guys Quinnspiracy scandal that occurred two weeks ago. Kotaku is at the forefront of this hate due to 2 reasons. 1. One of their writers is directly involved and has, seemingly, not received any formal reprimand for potentially mixing business with, I guess, pleasure. Not even an assura...

The Two Faces of Zoe

23d ago ... "Good" and "great" are seldom the same man. -Winston Churchill I've actually just heard of all of this, so I had to go through the text messages and some of the commentaries concerning Zoe. In terms of how she handled her personal and professional life I am actually kind of torn in how to criticize her actions. Obviously Zoe was not the ideal mate (or spouse, since in one of her posts...

The Master Race - Who Really Wins

23d ago ... My first blog on N4G will be my way of breaking down this on going argument between console gamers, otherwise referred to as peasants, and the PC gamers, the self proclaimed master race. Its worth noting however, that both of these terms are created by PC gamers themselves, if only by the minority, as PC has such a great community in all genres I wouldn't dare tarnish just how great it is. Also...

No, September's PS+ Lineup Does Not Suck

24d ago ... I've been seeing quite a few articles lately regarding September's PS+ lineup, and September's Games With Gold lineup. Many say GWG is better, some others beg to differ. Here's my whole take and opinion on this month's free games, and why everyone's complaining. (My post here is a bit long, I know, but bear with me). In case you haven't been catching up with the news lately, the free games t...

What Gran Turismo 7 needs to become top racing dog

26d ago ... Before you continue reading, this blog is based on my opinions and thoughts you can agree or disagree as much as you want but everyone has there own thoughts at end of the day. Note: I did write a smiler article about Gran Turismo 6 a while ago but I think its time to do one about Gran Turismo 7. If Gran Turismo 7 is going to be made for Playstation 4 then there are going to be serious ch...

My top 10 hidden gems last gen

27d ago ... The Last gen had alot of amazing games but unfortunately alot of these games went under the rubble or played by a small amount of gamers which is a shame because alot of those games were actually better than alot of AAA games . 10-Deadly Premonition (Ps3,360,pc) This game was really bad in almost everything , you will hate everything about it and regret ever buying it , until you get deep e...

Understanding The ESA Statistics

27d ago ... This is a blog about statistics. Hey! Hey! Hey! Don’t you dare close that tab. I’ll try to make this as painless as possible. I promise. I want to talk about the ESA and the statistics that they provide. I want to try to explain why it exists, who creates it, why they create it, why it’s largely nonsense and why we should NOT complain about it being nonsense. There are two kinds of statistic...

How Oppression Quest Perfectly Sums Up Corruption And Nepotism In Gaming Journalism

27d ago ... Unless you've lived in a cave on Mars, with your eyes shut and your fingers in your ears, then I'm sure you've heard of the Quinnspiracy, a.k.a. Five Guys Burgers and Fries, a.k.a. Who Won't Zoe Quinn Sleep With To Get Ahead. But just in case you still haven't, there's a text adventure game for you that perfectly sums up the situation, and even provides some shocking detail to just how far a...

Game of the Year

28d ago ... In terms of Game of the Year, the last generation started off pretty predictably. The large AAA games were the ones to take the centre stage. Games like Mass Effect, Bioshock, Oblivion and GTA 4 were the names thrown around in most of the conversations and most of those conversations were centered on a handful of games. However, as things progressed, we began to see smaller titles like Braid an...

This has only just begun, remember the Super Nintendo.

29d ago ... I usually wake up every morning and the first thing I do is check the N4G website. I am looking for news on new games, the next batch of free games with the Games with Gold program, and new apps added to the already impressive amount available to Xbox One owners. When I spot a new post that catches my attention I click on it immediately and begin reading. Usually Xbox One related articles are t...

No Hope Left?

29d ago ... You probably can't tell from my name but I am or at the very least was a hardcore Resident Evil fanboy, I was so into the series that I would consider it the contender with others being pretenders. I loved the series, I knew the whole story, I would dump out info in my head like, addresses, names, numbers, and basic motor skills just so my head could be a an archive of RE lore. I owned all t...

My Top 10 JRPGs

30d ago ... Probably my favorite gaming genre is JRPG, which probably has one of the hardest games, one of the most in-depth, best soundtracks and of course visually great (During their golden era atleast). Genre is very different from western type of RPG games such as Witcher, Fallout and Dungeon Siege Series. With the rise of Online gaming, we have morphed into MMORPG genre quite much, with this i thi...

Wii U owners unite for 3rd party support.

31d ago ... Alright so it’s no secret that 3rd party support generally sucks on Nintendo consoles. I’ve been on the defending side of both parties, but honestly the only party that can change the current situation and lack of proper 3rd party support is you, the gamer. So here’s a list of good no great 3rd party games that every Wii U should own if they’re a fan of the genre. Oh and remember, please “BUY N...
