5d 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?

8d 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...

Can Microsoft Take Back Gaming This Holiday 2015?

9d ago ... I don’t know but I am excited to see what they will do. I own a PS4 but I’m a gamer. So I still get excited for new games. And this fall it looks like Microsoft is done playing around and is about to release it’s big guns. That means it’s franchise players like Halo 5 and Gears of War. If that doesn’t get the hardcore gamers excited I don’t know if anything will. Hell I don’t even own the sy...

3 things that could make Fallout 4 the best Fallout yet.

70d ago ... In case you have been locked in a vault for the last few months, Bethesda will be at E3. This has got many people excited as it could lead to the much awaited announcement of Fallout 4. But E3 is still months away and we can only hope for an announcement, but we can also speculate. What could make the beloved Fallout franchise even better? As a fan myself I've thought long and hard and I've com...

Great Lessons From The Order:1886

97d ago ... By now, you've all seen the reviews and personal accounts of experiences with The Order: 1886. Very mixed, depending on who you are which isn't a bad thing. Variety is good and opens the doors for more varied games in the future. At the time of me writing this, the game has a 65 average on Metacritic based on 56 documented reviews. Normally, I'm not an advocate of Metacritic, but it serves a pu...

Lets sniff some glue 1: Square Enix edition

153d ago ... Square Enix CEO gets on the platform at the Playstation event after making a long trip from Japan just to announce 1 game. Shows FF7 logo. Everyone's excited... Reveals the 9000th port of FF7, but wait this time its a PC port. So "Preez be excited" (at that moment he knows he just trolled everyone like a boss). All this just shows Square Enix is out of touch with gamers and its own fans. Nex...

The Order 1886 First Impressions | ParisGamesWeek

211d ago ... When ReadyAtDawn (RAD) developers showcased during this year E3 a very short playable demo of their PS4 new IP - TheOrder1886 - a very big part of the gaming media has been voicing their "concern" about the gameplay and the fact that the game might hold your hand too much. And there were those who were even complaining about the game being linear... It would be an euphemism to say this game ha...

Polar-Opposite Worlds: Inside and Ori Revamp the 2D Platform

290d ago ... How will two projects revamp a classic genre to fit the modern taste? For starters, Play Dead Studios's "Inside" focuses more on a straight-forward story-telling plot as a young boy journeys from the fields into the city's factory. On the other hand, "Ori and the Blind Forest" developed by Moon Studios set their priorities on the game's mechanical features. To read more details with the videos...

Why Indie Games Matter

321d ago ... [b]By Tadej Kupčič, Project Director, Programmer[/b] A couple of days ago, I was getting so hyped up and excited for this year's E3, I couldn't even sleep. It's the first E3 after all three major consoles were released and I was hoping for some new IPs (intellectual properties) since now is the best time to announce those. New consoles are more powerful, meaning you can implement mechanics y...

In-Engine Vs Gameplay

338d ago ... Since E3 came and went, a lot of crazy buzz has been thrown about with varying degrees of awesome. Microsoft has proven that the Xbox One has a fighting chance with great looking upcoming games, Wii U not only showed its continued relevance but arguably won the entire show and Sony had a megaton of stuff to show, so much so that their conference was a massive two hours of announcements. But som...

The Stick of Truth Has Risen the Bar for Licensed Games

341d ago ... Diverting away from the ongoing topics from E3, I want to focus this blog on a game that I feel does its source material justice. Obviously, I am talking about South Park: The Stick of Truth. It has been a few months since the game released, but its impact with how licensed games have been produced has been felt across the industry. Considering that the game was heralded by Matt Stone and Trey...

E3 2014 has Revealed Something Startling about the Gaming Industry

341d ago ... It’s been about two weeks from since E3 2014 concluded. Wow; 2 whole weeks already? It honestly feels longer than that. Even so – the hype has now subsided, and we have a much clearer picture of what’s going on in the gaming world. There were a lot of amazing moments, and a lot of “what on earth?” moments. Yes, it was much fun. But today, I’m not here to give my review of the show. No, in...

A Recap of E3, and Why I Think Sony Won.

350d ago ... E3 was decent this year, across the board. Not one of the big three had a fiasco of a presentation, and even though the jury's still out on whether a Nintendo Direct counts as a conference, it's really about the games. So, let's get down to why I think Sony won. This piece is more or less of a recap of my previous articles, but with some perspective. You can find them here: http://landof...

The Potential for Cross Platform Gaming

351d ago ... Over the last few day at E3, there was a reveal that the game Happy Wars was supposed to be a cross-platform game and a number of gamers are cheering for finally being able to play people on another console. Even though the aspect of cross-gaming is hardly pursued, both developers and the big three console makers are obviously missing the advantages of gaming across platforms. First, there w...

Who Won E3? Get Back To Me In A Few Months For The Answer!

351d ago ... It’s been a very big selling point in discussing E3 press conferences. “Who won E3? Who lost it? Who didn’t move the needle from it?” It gets to the point where you are asking it a month in advance. What does one have to do to win at E3? Most of the time, people get sick of asking the question because it gets asked by everyone, and everyone has their own opinions based on what THEY want. Some b...

E3: Boredom and Disappointment

352d ago ... Hey fellow N4G-ers. It has been a while since my last blog, so what better chance to jump in than with an E3 impression blog. Incredibly original, I know. This E3 was a let-down for me. Perhaps we're still in the first-year-of-the-new-gen-dold rums, but it was the first time in a while where I found it hard to get excited, especially after last year's E3 with the skyrocketing hype and drama....

E3: The Problem with Post-Show Fanboyism and Critiques

352d 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...

Microsoft's lack of understanding of what they needed to bring

353d ago ... Before I start, I must confess I was never going to write an E3 blog post. I wasn’t even going to write one after I saw the conferences. What I saw is what I expected to happen which is something I got shot down, here on N4G, for being boring. What change my mind were the endless articles about who won this year. I didn’t mind who they picked (various sites went one way, others went another) bu...
