Lost in Discussion: An Interview With Chris Iacobucci

21d ago ... [i]Chris Iacobucci discusses with us how PixelNAUTS came to be, a bit about Lost Orbit, and their ultimate goal to take over the world.[/i] [b]Valenka:[/b] Tell me about the team at PixelNAUTS – how did the company form?

Destiny: The Cosmic Mausoleum

69d ago ... The longer that you spend in Destiny’s Tower hub-world, the more that you’ll quickly become accustom to its many practices and rituals. After being ferried into its courtyard the breadth of The Tower opens up in front of you, the opulent, regal decoration of its many expanses a far cry from the war-torn planes that exist beyond its borders. To your right, the Cryptarch ponders the contents o...

Beanman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Perspective)

127d ago ... This feels like a pinch-me moment as I type out the following: a few of the most heavily hyped AAA blockbusters, whose advertisements were undoubtedly plastered all over big gaming sites during their release, have recently received some rather underwhelming reviews scores. Some of the most popular victims would be Destiny (1) and The Order: 1886 (2). And while the results are currently undete...

I Am Disappoint: Destiny Part 2

235d ago ... Why, hello there. Perhaps you may have noticed but, this is coming out much later than I would've liked. That's simply terrible, because by now discussion surrounding Destiny has most likely simmered to the point of me having to toss it in the microwave before anyone is interested in taking a bite again. So, as a nice little warm-up before I delve into my more constructive breakdown of the s...

I Am Disappoint: Destiny Damage Control

275d ago ... I know, I know, another whiny blog about what's wrong with Destiny. Well, if it makes you feel any better, this has less to do with my actual Destiny experience and more to do with the game's reception. Please watch Machinima's Inside Gaming video on Destiny's critical reception, as this edition in disappoint will be in-part a response to a certain point brought up in that video: https://www...

Are We Gamers Becoming Harder To Please Nowadays?

278d ago ... I ask this question, because to me, I notice that nearly every new release on the consoles and PC so far, there has been so much hate surrounding each game. Is it because we are expecting too much? Is it the developers releasing games too early, with problems at release (example: Battlefield 4, Driveclub, Destiny). Is it because we get sucked in to the hype train so much that when the actual...

Destiny and Its Loyal Haters: Observations from a Man Sorry He's Having Fun

305d ago ... Launch night came and went with all the wonder and promise of any other. I couldn’t wait to wake up the next day, sprint through my day at work and Fresno State, and get back home to play it. Destiny was great. It wasn’t a revolutionary game by any means, but the mixing and matching of RPG, MMO and a solid shooter with stunning visuals was inexplicably fun. In fact, to this day I can’t ev...

Destiny: The Best Way to Get Loot

305d ago ... Destiny has been out for a while now and we've seen lots of articles all claiming to have "The best way to get loot", however now that Bungie has "Nerfed" the "Holy Loot Cave" what is the new best way to get loot. One of the most frequent ways I see in comments is Crucible. I've seen polarizing views on Crucible. Some say it gives tons of loot, some claim it doesn't give anything. I wanted to p...

Play How You Like And I'll Do The Same

306d ago ... I can't believe that this needs to be said but apparently it does. How you choose to play a game is completely irrelevant to everyone but you. The rules you set up for yourself in playing any game are only your rules, they are no one else's, and you have no right to preach the "correct" way to play any game to anyone else. Today I'm talking about the fanboys who complain about people who use...

Was Destiny Destined to Be a Disappointment?

309d ago ... It is an understatement to say that Destiny's reception by gamers and some parts of the gaming journalism scene has been lukewarm at best with debate after debate about why another one of the biggest releases of the year turned out to be such a financial success but only a moderate critical success. Destiny is the first multiplatform game from former Halo game studio Bungie and was hyped up to...

Final Fantasy XV Looks Absolutely Fantastic, Finally!

311d ago ... I am a forever fan of Final Fantasy, since I first played it as a 12 year old I have been hooked! The series has been a marathon of classics, one after the other we were treated to amazing games. However, final fantasy 13 was the first in the series, if excluding mystic quest, crystal chronicles or dirge of cerberus etc, to receive serious divide amongst its fan base. I personally enjoyed it, b...

Our Favorite PS4 Games So Far

312d ago ... Destiny As probably the biggest release of the year, Destiny is a really fun game to play. Even more so when you play with friends. We have been really excited to get our hands on this and shoot some aliens. Although there are some areas that are lacking, Bungie’s new sci-fi shooter sits very well with us. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Wow there is so much to do in this game! There...

How the Hype-Train Plowed Over Destiny

316d ago ... Oh the sad case of Destiny. How did the most anticipated game of 2014 fall so flat? A few short months ago everyone, myself included, was really enjoying the Beta, so how is it that after final release Bungie’s latest is now stuck at a Metacritic review score of 75/100 with a user score of 6.5? While review scores are definitely not everything when it comes to rating a video games worth, and us...

Destiny - Don't defend it like it is your child, the reviews are not wrong...but neither are you.

316d ago ... I decided to type up this blog tonight reflecting on the recent Destiny reviews and the user reaction on N4G regarding said reviews. It has sparked a great divide and controversy within the community of N4G and has worryingly led to some outright delusional viewpoints and comments. The rallied defence for Destiny really does show how loyal a fanbase it already has and having only been out fo...
