Doom: Does it Hold Up?

128d ago ... In continuing my series on nostalgia and retro gaming, I've decided to create a line of articles entitled "Does It Hold Up?" Perhaps the best way to examine whether nostalgia is blind, or if there is sufficient reasoning behind it, is to examine specific games from my past, that I have gone back and played again, for the first time in years. Today, I will be talking about Doom, which I've b...

I Might Feel a Little Bad For Microsoft.

133d ago ... I think the late nights, and the occasional early morning, are starting to get to me, because I'm actually starting to feel a little bit bad for Microsoft. Note, when I say a little bad, I only actually mean, a tiny bit bad, and nothing more. Allow me to explain. As we all know, when the Xbox One was first announced, there was a list of things people didn't like about it, from DRM, to alwa...

Since the Nintendoomed hype train is still in the station…

238d ago ... So, according to some on the internet, Nintendo is in a lot of trouble and there’s a lot of hoopla surrounding what they’ll do next after their most recent earning report was shown to be quite disappointing. This topic and the so-called “Nintendoomed” hype that’s shrouded the company has made the rounds in many places already, but I still had an interest in making a blog about it because I’ve...

Why We're NOT Screwed Even If We Don't Buy an Xbox One

249d ago ... Admittedly, this blog post is long overdue yet the combination of real life obligation and the painful surgery work I've had done on my jaw made it increasingly difficult to get my head in the mindset. Couple that with the ever growing mountain of turd piling on Microsoft's head and you have an entry that needed to adjusted again and again. My first blog was titled 'Why we're screwed even if...

Sorry, but Nintendo is NOT Doomed (At Least, Not in my Eyes)

254d ago ... Now before I even begin this post; let me grab a few supplies. Okay, flame-retardant uniform - check. Fire-proof goggles and gloves - check. And lastly; fanboy shield - check. ALRIGHT! Now let's get this show on the road! (Please, let me live after this). So, a few days ago, Nintendo made some announcements. With no need to repeat already overly-chanted information; bottom-line is, t...

Next gen Superman game! Who wants one?

257d ago ... I have looked around the internet searching for what people actually want in a good Superman game. Here's my take on the new Superman game for the next gen consoles. A lot of people are waiting for Superman to appear in a good game but everyone is also complaining about the fact that Superman is doomed to fail because of his backstory and properties. Luckily there are some fans (including my...

Adam “The sky is falling!” Sessler

325d ago ... I used to respect him as a game journalist, I really did. I used to watch X-Play all the time back in the day (I love you Morgan Webb!). I watched that show back when it was on Tech TV, before G4TV even existed (I also watched it on G4). Lately he's lost all credibility and any respect he once had from me. I knew he was always biased in favor of Xbox, but that never bothered me. Everyb...

Rant: Where is the Gaming Industry Headed?

332d ago ... Am I the only one seeing this gloom and doom trip that everyone's going on heading into the next generation? Because it's been beyond noticeable to me. Whether it's people saying that consoles are going to be taken over by smartphones, or that gaming development costs are skyrocketing continuously, a lot of people are saying that consoles are going to die out, that digital distribution is go...

What Genre Of Games Are Your Achilles Heel

369d ago ... I was just watching a Rev3Games Casual Friday video that asked the question: What games do you suck at? It got me thinking about that question myself and the answer for me was obvious. The genre of games I completely suck at are pretty much anything that's first person based, but mostly first person shooters. It's odd because I can play some games that allow for a toggling of first person to...

It Isn't Easy Being a New Indie Developer

384d ago ... I've wanted to be a part of developing games since I was about 13. Me and one of my best friends would always come up with game concepts in our free time, drawing covers for our games of insane ambition. As I got older, I started considering other careers, but it all came back to game development. I couldn't afford a great university (I was a ~3.6 GPA student with above average SAT scores, b...

4 Common Complaints About Wii U that Aren't that Valid

393d ago ... It's hard to believe the Wii U is almost a year old. No seriously, in just two months - the Wii U will turn 1. Time sure does fly, doesn't it? Unfortunately though, the Wii U hasn't had a very successful first year by any means. For the last half of the year - this thing has been riddled with flack. From devs announcing over and over that they won't be bringing major titles to the system, to...

If The Wii U's First-Party Blowout Can't Save It - THEN It's Dead

402d ago ... It's hard to believe that it's almost been an entire year from since the Wii U has been released. Wow, time sure does fly! Most of the time that it has spent on the market - things have been very dormant...VERY dormant. Despite Nintendo promising it wouldn't happen - the '3DS Scenario' once again reared it's ugly, ugly head. Here we had a nice system, but no nice games...in fact, barely ANY...

The Wii U Now has a Voice - But will it be Heard?

461d ago ... - It was not too long ago when gamers, journalists, and even some developers were chanting the "Wii U is DOOMED!" slogan. Every single day, there were multiple articles - all asking the same doom-&-gloom questions: "Is Wii U Doomed?" "Will the Wii U be the end for Nintendo?" "Should Nintendo Just go Third-Party?" Then we had articles like: Developer: "We simply don't have any idea...

The Xbox 180 U-Turn Perspective - From an Xbox Gamer

468d ago ... Obviously, everyone knows what happened on June 19, 2013 at 2pm on the Xbox Wire, so I won't go into too much detail as it's written in every article on N4G. And I haven't commented as much as I usually do, for the simple fact that I didn't have all of the information to judge the Xbox One and I wanted to keep my 5 Bubbles :D. So here we go... Personally, I think Microsoft was doomed right o...

Will the PS3 and 360 Trip Their Successors?

510d ago ... Some of you may have just looked at that question and started laughing. You may be thinking "What is this idiot talking about? When PS4 and 720 come out, people will be running for the shelves!" Well, that could be true, but when it comes down to the launches of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox 720 - I can't help but think that the strong presence that their predecessors now have will most lik...

The Evolution Of the Multi Player FPS

516d ago ... Just as there's been evolution in species, there's also been evolution in just about every little thing we, as humans, can produce. In my generation movies started with Star Wars, and now we get the pleasure to experience the exhilaration of the many Marvel hero movies. With food our french fries were innovated into chili cheese fries then to carne asada fries. I'm so, so grateful for those car...

Wii U's Performance is Not "New Console Jitters" or "Just like Ps3"

545d ago ... There has been plenty of articles that have had some not so positive analysis of its (granted) short life. Some articles have taken it too far with verbal illustrations of "doom" for the Wii U, but let's not let that justify extremes on the other end, claiming that Wii U is in no trouble at all; Wii U is in a tight spot and is NOT suffering from "typical" new console jitters. Some would hav...

Is the Wii U Really in Trouble?

561d ago ... It's no secret that lately there's been a boatload of doom and gloom articles relating to the Wii U. Some of them are claiming that Nintendo is going down like the Titanic and they should just start over with a new console. I however, would beg to differ. First off, I can't hide that I'm a Nintendo Fan, but let me say that I'm not trying to be a blind fan-boy here. I'm not going to argue that t...

Do Nintendo need to change their business model?

561d ago ... A lot of debating (see bickering) has been going on around the interwebs these past months in regards to Nintendo's new console the Wii U, Im not about to "debate" whether or not their new console is next gen, but I will say that it is inarguably Nintendo's next generation console, if you get my meaning. A great many gamers believe Nintendo to be in trouble and feel that they are inevitably...
