Thank You, Satoru Iwata

2d ago ... The news has struck from this month that Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata passed away. The sudden and heavy feeling of loss has not only been seen from Nintendo, but the entire video game industry. Death is a hard subject to talk about. It's hard enough when the person who passed away is someone who played a significant role in your life. For many gamers, Satoru Iwata was present for many of their gam...

Cuphead Preview

3d ago ... [b]From Valenka[/b] Cuphead, an upcoming indie, run-and-gun platformer, made headlines last year during E3 2014 when Microsoft showcased a montage of forthcoming indie titles, including brief scenes of the game from Canadian developer, Studio MDHR. Back then, there wasn’t much information surrounding Cuphead aside from its classic animation aesthetic, and that was more than enough to capture...

Kickstarter Perspective: Sam Abbott, Compulsion Games

26d ago ... Hello nice people! Forgive me for this incoming wall of text. It’s the story of the Kickstarter of We Happy Few. My name is Sam, and I am the COO (the boring but moderately dashing spreadsheet guy) at Compulsion Games, a 15 person studio based in Montreal. Two years ago, when we were 7 people, we created a game called Contrast, where you played the imaginary friend of a little girl and...

My Top 3 Most Anticipated Games from E3

29d ago ... Every year E3 sets out to fulfill only one thing, provide a stage on which to show us gamers, media and marketers exactly what games and peripherals we have in store. Many years, E3 comes and goes and leaves nothing more than a slight level of excitement. This year though, I personally was absolutely floored. It seemed that not only was there an amazing amount of content, but it was quality con...

The Wii U is DONE: How the Nintendo NX could re-write the rules

30d ago ... Amid the madness that was E3 2015, one detail that was spoken of so briefly that the term ‘glossed over’ doesn’t quite feel accurate–the Nintendo NX console–made a quiet blip on the radar before taking a backseat to the new additions to their longstanding franchise Super Smash Bros. (which really showed me the direction the company is determined to go in), plushies and arguably way too much tim...

PlayStation & Kickstarter: The Final Solution?

37d ago ... In a recent blog post before E3, I briefly discussed the use of Kickstarter as a platform to get games funded. I have to say, it was either a stroke of luck or intuition where it followed that Yu Suzuki and Sony have opted to use Kickstarter to make Shenmue a reality. I'm a humble fellow, so let's chalk it up to the former and move past it. This, in my opinion, opens up some interesting door...

Final Fantasy VII vs. Rise of the Tomb Raider

38d ago ... Well, looks like I'm going to be writing quite a few blogs in close succession aren't I? But this topic has to be discussed. Why? Well because for those for whom an E3 victory is a matter of life and death, Final Fantasy VII's availability has become a talking point and it's about time it's analyzed. Final Fantasy VII's remake was announced specifically with the words "Final Fantasy VII rema...

E3 2015 Roundup

38d ago ... With E3 here and gone we are left in the wake of all the big news that was announced at the numerous conferences. What we aim for in this article is to sum up as much as we can. After having watched a full day worth of light shows, loud music and the odd new game here and there, the tiredness kicked in - after all the Sony conference was at 2am..... - this years E3 was all about the games,...

The Phoenix Rises

39d ago ... There are certain games that I hold on a pedestal and then there is Shenmue. Needless to say, when it was announced at E3 that finally we would be getting that coveted third installment, I went nuts. Instantly a flurry of thoughts rushed to my head, recounting my nostalgia for the series. Those quick time events, massive street brawls, sailors, the infamous cave moment, and even Tom the hot dog...

Final Fantasy VII is official...but why am I nervous?

40d ago ... On Monday, during Sony's press conference at E3, it was finally announced that one of the most iconic and highly anticipated game was finally getting the remake it very much deserves. It stole the show (and possibly the entire Expo) with a short trailer that shows glimpses of Midgar, Barret's hand gun, and the iconic Buster Sword. Roars can from the crowed as the excitement consumed the room, m...

There Are Some Straight Babies Within The Gamer Community

41d ago ... E3 for me is over. I don't care about watching the PC conference, don't care about what people are playing at booths or whatever, I watched what I wanted to and will be making a blog about my thoughts soon. What I have seen though is a lot of the saltiest, most jaded, most butthurt people I have ever seen in my life crawling out of the shadows and into the light like a bunch of cockroaches....

E3 Thoughts

41d ago ... So another E3 has come and gone, and naturally there's a lot to talk about. E3 has come a long way in the past few years. A few years ago we'd be arguing which company had the least cringe-worthy moments or technical hiccups. Now we actually argue on who had the better conference. Anyway, here's what I thought of each company's performance. ============================= Microsoft: Phil Sp...

Top 10 Forgotten Franchises That I Want To See Return

44d ago ... Let me start by saying: I'm an old school gamer. I started playing games in 1990 on the NES and I KNOW the meaning of "Nintendo hard". Not that I'm bragging, I'm sure there's lots of older and better skilled gamers on this site. I say this because over the years, I have seen franchise after franchise waste away with the sands of time. Passing into memory and eventually... myth. A lot of younger...

E3 Stuff & Moderator Update

45d ago ... Hello everyone. E3 is right around the corner and I wanted to hit on a few things about submissions during the time of E3. Before that, I wanted to announce an addition to the moderation team: Please welcome Geobros - http://n4g.com/user/home/Geobros - to the N4G moderation team. Geobros has been a long time contributor, knows the ropes, and has agreed to help us in keeping the...

In-Depth E3 Predictions

46d ago ... E3 is just a few days away and so I will now make my predictions for the Big 3. (bear in mind that, while this is well-researched, it still includes my opinion which, like yours and mine and everyone else’s, doesn’t really matter) Nintendo: I thought Nintendo actually had the best conference last year and that's ironic considering they didn't even make an actual, physical appearance at t...

E3, a time to dream - What is your final fantasy?

50d ago ... As I took my niece and nephew to their weekly aquatic debacle, a.k.a. their swimming lesson, I couldn't help but think about E3. It is looming over us and we are drowned in speculations (much like my nephew who couldn't stay afloat to save his life) and early reveals that leaves us all baffled. Is the best yet to come? Are they reaching out to a new audience beyond the legion of gamers and inv...

What Could Sony Do To Make Consumers Happy At E3?

55d ago ... With E3 just a hop away, Sony is likely finalizing announcements for their press conference. It's been a little while since I've written a blog and I'm feeling that a modest contribution to N4G's content is never a bad thing. So here are some things I'd like to see announced at E3. I'll break it into news for 2015 and 2016, as well as niche and megaton announcements. Keep in mind, I won't be di...

The Big E3 Publishers: Bethesda

65d ago ... It's that time of the year, and E3 will soon be upon us and with it comes the dreaded or loved E3 predictions. And first up is BETHESDA GAMES.....wait what.... Yep that right for the first time Bethesda is having their very own E3 conference, which hopefully means they have a lot to show, and I'm not wasting my time writing all this speculation. Last gen Bethesda had a very polarizing work...

Black Ops 3 -Vs- Star Wars, If You Had to Pick One?

68d ago ... Both of these are going to be blockbusters, without question, but only one of these two titles is going to be able to be the runaways success that puts the title at the top of the sales charts. Now to be fair this battle would be different if it was our normal battle of Battlefield vs Call of Duty. But, Interestingly enough DICE has moved to making Star Wars -(Mistake or genius move, hard to...
