The Little Engine That Could

37d ago ... Folks, something glorious is happening right now and it's very hard to describe without coming across as a raving lunatic but here goes - Are you ready for this? The Japanese gaming scene is on the resurgence. I know, it's crazy, right? But there it is, right in front of our eyes we're seeing rapid announcements of Japanese IPs (both old and new) being revealed right before our eyes. B...

Subaeria Preview

56d ago ... [b]From Herobyclicking[/b] F-33. F-33. F-33. That flashes through my mind as I race through to Cube F-33. My father is there. F-33 is about to be sacrificed and I feel helpless. But I am not alone, my neighbors encourage, urge me, force me to do something. I race through our shanty town. A town that is submerged in the deep, dark depths. For 350 years we have lived like this with robots, the...

Grim Dawn

62d ago ... [b]From herobyclicking[/b] The cave was infested with the walking dead. Zombies controlled by the Aetherials. I summon my raven and hellhound and they wade into battle. I stand on the periphery blasting the undead with my six-shooters. From behind me a stream of brute like mutants charge. I cast a quick hex on them, slowing them down. As my hellhound destroys the last zombie it comes to my a...

Booooo

63d ago ... [b]From Valenka[/b] Step into the shoes – or rather, the ectoplasm – of a peaceful ghost residing inside a haunted mansion, thriving in the cold and dark environments and enjoying the solitude. In a moment, the mansion doors open to a few human dwellers and the ghost learns that his quiet home is now a hotel and in contrast to its needs, the home-invading humans start turning on the lights a...

Ye Olde Import Game

187d ago ... In today’s interconnected world, gaming has never been so transparent, especially when it comes to imports. If you want a game from Japan just hop on Amazon and go get it. If there is a certain title you want localized, well then just petition your heart away until you get your wish. It wasn’t always this easy though. Not so long ago importing a game was a dicey affair and more often than not i...

Return of JRPGs:Xensosaga, Dark Cloud, Shadow Hearts, Suikoden

259d ago ... This blog will look at how it really IS possible to revive extinct video game series, so long as there is a will on part of the gamers. Shadow Hearts is a video game series which ended in 2006 due to the publisher who owns the Shadow Hearts Intellectual Property going bankrupt.

N4G Preview: Cordial Minuet

307d ago ... I am pretty sure that today I summoned a demon. My apologies to the metro Denver area if the Dark Prince Stolas is about, that was totally my doing. But really the blame can be placed upon the shoulders of the creator of this infernal game, Jason Rohrer. I am getting ahead of myself, the demon summoning will be explained in a minute. Cordial Minuet (cordialminuet.com) is a game that utilizes...

Memoirs of a Frightened Gamer

308d ago ... With Halloween upon us, I’m in the midst of my own little fright fest. I have a years supply of candy corn, a Netflix queue that would make any horror fan blush, and a stack of scaaary video games to play! I figured it would be a neat idea to revisit a lot of the horror titles in my collection. Specifically the games that have collected some dust over the years so to speak. I want to give a lit...

Destiny's Skirmish: An Unbalanced Waste of Time or an Unforgiving Masterpiece?

339d ago ... I was at the Tower looking for some easy Crucible bounties when I saw it. The mission was simple: complete five Skirmish matches. It sounded easy enough, so I grabbed the innocent little bounty and blasted off to orbit, my cousin Zach joining my fireteam before I started the first match. “Work together, and you might survive!” The Speaker warned as Zach, another player and I spawned in. Zach...

When does Next Gen truly start?

352d ago ... When we buy a next gen system, we expect at least a game or two to stand out and scream next gen. To make us stand up and say, "wow, I cant believe this is a game!" or "This couldnt have been done last gen". Not just visually, but with gameplay also. I can remember, the entire way back to the Atari 2600, each system launch having at least one or two of those games that made you gasp in amazemen...

Microsoft's Misuse Of Their IPs

354d ago ... Microsoft has been criticized for the past few years for relying too heavily on a few IPs. The original Xbox had a large amount of exclusive games that were first party with games like Halo, Conker, Mechassualt, Crimson Skies, Forza, Project Gotham Racing, Rallisport Challenge, Brute Force, Blink, Voodoo Vince and several other titles being published (and owned) by MS for the Platform. Microso...

A Boy's Quest

[b]By Erik.B.Skjoldhaug, Co-Founder at Lumi Games AS.[/b] [i]Once upon a time in a faraway country, far to the north, a country covered in snow and where the polar bears roam freely in the streets, a young boy was born.
