Games are Being Revealed Too Early

91d ago ... I've noticed a worrying trend in games that has gotten much worse in the last few years. Games are being revealed way too early. From the publisher's point of view they probably think a game can't be revealed early enough. The earlier the game is revealed, the more hype and anticipation that can be generated which should translate to large pre-order numbers. But revealing a game a year or two b...

You never cancel a pre-order early.... especially over something as stupid as graphics.

148d ago ... Gamers have made me angry ALOT over the years. Here's a small list of the stuff I've dealt with. PS4 haters. Xbox One haters. Wii U haters. Cheaters in online multiplayer. People who try to "expose" you. People who want Ridley in Super Smash Bros 4. But THIS topic takes the cake. Some of you actually CANCELLED your Watch Dogs pre-orders because the graphics were "downgraded" from wh...

Watchdogs... A Community Divided

149d ago ... From the second that Ubisoft released a subpar trailer of Watchdogs, the forums all over the internet have lit up with negative reactions, saying visuals have been severely downgraded over E3 2012s high end PC demo. No matter how much Ubisoft has tried to squash the rumors and remind gamers that the E3 2012 demo was never representative of next gen console visuals(only a target for high end PCs...

Nintendo Has Most Certainly Won The Next Generation

492d ago ... Nintendo, the creators of the game industry have already won this new generation with the Wii U. With its clearly vast library of games and incredible exclusives like Halo 5, Final Fantasy XVII, Uncharted 7 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 8, it has already bested the test of time and has shown us what a next gen system is truly capable of, rendering the upcoming Nextbox and PS4 obsolete and dea...

Why Wii U might not be a repeat of the Wii

808d ago ... So E3 2012 has come and gone and following Nintendo failing to set the world on fire, this will take a look back at the good things they showed. As you can tell by the title I don't believe Wii U will be a repeat of the Wii. Neither in success or support. But what do I mean by "support"? Read on to find out. Time and time again in markets assumptions are made. The biggest assumption being 'i...

Not the E3 We Deserved, But the One We Need Right Now

811d ago ... The general consensus this year has been that E3 2012 was a massive disappointment. All three of the platform holders (Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo) failed to show why they and their platforms are still vital. Meanwhile, the two largest publishers were either absent entirely (Activision) or clearly stagnant (EA). The dirge of new IP's and the reliance on tried and tested formula games in co...

A Brief History of Time(d Exclusives)

821d ago ... As E3 2012 approaches, there has been a lot of talk about "timed exclusives". Much of the talk has been negative towards one console manufacturer in particular. Reading comments on N4G, one could be led to believe that it's an "evil business practice", deserving of ridicule and scorn. Looking back at gaming history however, we will see that timed exclusives have been an integral part of near...

E3 2012 Predictions

829d ago ... In two short weeks, E3 2012 will be upon us and with it a slew of information about the future of the industry. "Innovation Unveiled" is this years slogan for the popular trade show but what can we expect to see out of the show? Many people have posted what they want to see out of E3 but none have posted what will realistically come out of the show. In the first part I will put what will be my...
