Under the Knife: Public Relations Failure and Fan Outrage

8d 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...

Was Destiny Downgraded without anyone noticing?

19d ago ... First off: I can't wait to get Destiny, everything about it has me eager to get my hands on the full release. Part of that is what brought me to this realization. I've been soaking up every tidbit of information on it ever since the Beta ended because I had a lot of fun. I loved the exploration, I love to grind for levels, I love to grind for gear and I'm very interested in the story, the cha...

OctoParty: Dadliest Spy

38d ago ... Who's that man in the 3-piece suit? A Spy! Or maybe just someone's Dad. Short Lived Heroes combined 2 of their favorite indie games to bring you this nonsense!

International Exclusionary Sports Federation: The Hearthstone Incident

56d ago ... Hell has officially frozen over. I am going to write a blog post that could be seen as defending a position akin to the feminist one, though only just barely. So for those of you that don't know, there is an organization known as the International e-Sports Federation dedicated to video game tournaments designed to promote competitive gaming as a legitimate sport. For 6 years now it has held...

E3: The Problem with Post-Show Fanboyism and Critiques

77d ago ... The Electronic Entertainment Expo has come to a close. Conferences were streamed, games were played, and technology was shown off. The who's who of the video game industry made their appearances known. We have multiple new games coming out this year and many still waiting to see distribution in the future. In light of everything shown at E3, there is still the ever lingering problem seen from b...

Leaks Might Not Be As Bad As You'd Think.

82d ago ... It happens every year. In the month or so, leading up to E3, something is bound to be leaked. Most of the time, at least two of the big three have some kind of announcement that's revealed earlier than anticipated, as does at least one third party studio. Excitement stirs, and many anticipate the full reveal of these games. On the other hand, many think leaks are a bad thing. If a compan...

Drama, Drama, Drama.

82d ago ... Bored and curious, I looked up a few YT channels. I won't name them, but you can guess which ones. I will say that they are quite notable and have been responsible for controversy. Anyways, I look up the channels, watch bits of a few videos and it suddenly dawned on me as to how much drama and sensationalism comes out of gaming journalism and gaming in general. Dead Rising 3 comes out to...

Nintendo Now Has The Right Idea About YouTube

89d ago ... To be perfectly honest with you, I'm not really expecting a warm reception to this blog. In fact I expect a lot of people to take offense with my opinions this time. They're not popular and they're not common. But I feel it's something that ought to be said. Nintendo's new stance on YouTube Let's Play revenue is the right one in my opinion. Initially, Nintendo opted to eradicate revenue people...

Google needs Twitch more than you might think

98d ago ... It’s no secret that gaming has taken over YouTube and it has happened for a number of reasons. While Movie, Television and Music industries have grown increasingly contentious as to use of their content by users on the channel, gaming companies have taken the exact opposite stance. They have been encouraging users to use their material as a means of promotion and have even been actively defe...

How to Avoid Annoying Your Gamer

99d ago ... Having to deal with customer support representatives is somewhere at the top of everyone's 'I'd rather lick the inside of a city bus than' list, so it is never truly a surprise when someone's experience with these seemingly mindless drones is worth penning. Whether it be a communication over the telephone, a live chat service or through e-mail, more often than not, a consumer is always either f...

Nintendo's Quietness is Beginning to get Annyoing

125d ago ... Nintendo are incredibly Japanese. What am I talking about? Just look how they operate; they seem to work in a more, traditional manner, than their brother – Sony. Nintendo has always been about doing their own thing. That’s how it’s been for a pretty good while now. They’ve always been the source of everything that was against the mainstream. They created these weird, quirky, and sometime...

Guess RedDragan's Baby's Name=Win Money

142d ago ... Sometimes when a user wins an N4G prize, they opt to do something a little different. Some users request the prize be donated to a charity, some want theirs to go to a sibling, and still others want me to create a contest around the naming of their firstborn. This is that contest. You see, user RedDragan had a baby, and fatherhood kept him from claiming his winnings in a timely manner. We...

Video Game Music Gone Downhill?

156d ago ... Introduction The point of this discussion is very simple, to raise awareness that music in games has been going downhill for a while now. I will use examples from different eras of gaming. NES, SNES, N64, PS1 and obviously the PC. I will make comparisons to more modern games music but I will discuss about that at the end, first I will make examples that will help me to make my point. Now...

Franchises that don't seem to die

185d ago ... This one has been in my head for a while. Lets do this countdown style. 6)Assassins Creed. This game originated last gen. Now, the latest title is Assassins Creed 4, so you'd think there are only 4 games, right? There are over 12. AC1, AC2, AC Brotherhood, AC Revelations, AC3, heck there's even a DS version that I forget the name to. This series seems old, yet it's only been around fo...

Will there be a 9th generation of consoles?

187d ago ... Yes, I realize this is a touchy subject, and I will likely be accused of making a "click bait" blog. But just hear me out here. I'm actually against there NOT being a 9th generation of consoles. Microsoft and Nintendo have both stated that they have plans for a 9th generation console, the Nintendo Fusion, and, I don't know, the Xbox Two. *Loud Booing.* Ok, corny joke, but lets get into th...
