Would Batman Vs Superman Make For An Amazing Video Game?

22d ago ... I know this sounds crazy, but at the same time just think about how amazing this could be. I mean the movie is looking like it might be huge, one serious blockbuster coming out in 2016. But can you really think of a better battle then this? Or a better superhero video game that you would rather play. (Ok sadly this is not happening) This is just to talk about how epic it would be, if movi...

For The Love Of Life - Part 2

103d ago ... Since my last Valentine's Day special blog got such an enthusiastic reaction from Cat, I'd thought I'd give it another try this year. However, I realize I'm limiting my options severely by sticking to the same rules as I did last year, so instead we're going with a different theme: Unconventional This valentine's day, we shall examine the more unconventional stories about love in videogam...

Epic Developer Battles Of History

124d ago ... Pardon the lame title, I just really couldn't come up with anything better to be honest. I'm sure many of you have heard of Epic Rap Battles of History. It's a youtube channel that takes suggestions of two figures, used to be historical figures, fictional or real and has those figures engage in a rap battle. Created by Nice Peter and Epic Lloyd, they've become such characters as Hitler vs. D...

What is up with number 3?

148d ago ... Sequels are really hard to make because the developers works harder to make a better game while retaining the charm of the first game but sometimes when a sequel becomes really good and way better than the first. Developers think about making a third one which either fails to impress because of the high bar the second game sets or never gets released and on rare occasions it becomes the best...

My top 10 Ps1 games.

175d ago ... Considering this is the Playstation Anniversary, I decided to make a list of 10 games that I hold dearly in my heart and enjoyed so very much, I am sure opinions will differ when it comes to making such a list and I am sure there are many awesome games like those but to each his own :), most of those games in the list were loved equally. So lets begin with… 10-Syphon Filter (Ps1) What can...

2014 is the year of disappointment in gaming...

206d ago ... It started with so much promise... New consoles, new generation, new year. It was all looking up 11 months ago. We were about to see what these new bad boys could do. Just imagining the amazing graphical fidelity and new styles of gameplay was enough to make many of us open our pocketbooks to be a part of 8th generation of gaming. And lets not forget our old consoles were likewise enterin...

N4G & The Internet vs 90's Gaming & Magazines

262d ago ... I was born in 1989. I suppose that makes me quite old! However, growing up in the 90's was awesome! We had the feeling of that first time epic joy from all forms of entertainment. Movies had charm and character, music was great if you ignored that evil pop music, and generally everything for kids felt better than it is today! Gaming especially felt fresh, getting a NES or SNES or even a sega...

The Master Race - Who Really Wins

272d ago ... My first blog on N4G will be my way of breaking down this on going argument between console gamers, otherwise referred to as peasants, and the PC gamers, the self proclaimed master race. Its worth noting however, that both of these terms are created by PC gamers themselves, if only by the minority, as PC has such a great community in all genres I wouldn't dare tarnish just how great it is. Also...

My top 10 hidden gems last gen

276d ago ... The Last gen had alot of amazing games but unfortunately alot of these games went under the rubble or played by a small amount of gamers which is a shame because alot of those games were actually better than alot of AAA games . 10-Deadly Premonition (Ps3,360,pc) This game was really bad in almost everything , you will hate everything about it and regret ever buying it , until you get deep e...

Do Better Graphics Make a Better Game? (Round 2! Link's Awakening vs. A Link to the Past)

334d ago ... To get this out of the way right now, Link's Awakening is the first game in the Zelda series I actually completed (beaten and 100%) which gives it a sort of bias in my mind. That being said, I have so much love for the Zelda series as a whole that I believe I can make an honest judgement between each game. What I loved about Link's Awakening is that it is a complete side story that doesn't invo...

Kingdom Hearts III: Possible New Concepts

406d ago ... Hello, everyone! I'm back to talk more on the possibilities leading up to the highly anticipated Kingdom Hearts III. For those of you who got to see my first blog, I talked about worlds that I would nominate as candidates for the final installment. In this blog, I would like to share what I think would be excellent additions for certain worlds, gameplay elements, and what fans would think about...

Video game Violence and the hypocrisy relating to it.

412d ago ... GTA V, The Last of Us, Ryse, God of War. What do these games have in common? Well, CONTROVERSY. For around 20 years games, gamers and gaming have faced controversy frequently regarding the depictions of sexual, violent or adult themed content found in them. Before video games there were moral panics over, comics, rock and roll, rap and even theater productions in the time of Shakespeare and...

Three Things Bravely Default Does Better Than Final Fantasy XIII

422d ago ... It’s almost a unanimously agreed-upon fact that Final Fantasy XIII is a terrible, terrible byproduct of a once-shining corporation now consumed with greed. It is because of this very game that many Final Fantasy loyalists thought Square Enix bit the dust. But in February of 2014, something amazing happened: The JRPG giant brought to life a fantastical masterpiece of epic proportions. This game,...

Capcom and the importance of niche

525d ago ... Recently, I picked up both Lost Planet 1 and 2 for Xbox 360 because I am currently obsessed with the film Pacific Rim and I just wanted to play the only games that would get me as close to that kind of world, both in style and action. I Started with Lost Planet 2 and... I'm more in love with this game than I have ever been before. I've played and gotten rid of it once already, but now I just ca...

PS4 vs. Xbox One: Lets Get Real

546d ago ... The fanboys hat full force on the which nex-gen consoles is "better" from hardware to pixels every angle has been explored, exploited and debated. But the bottom line, no matter which comparsion standard you use, is that the console is only as good as the games that are available for it. The fact is that while both the PS4 and Xbox One are seemingly great consoles with the ability to hav...

Sorry, We Can't Be Real Gaming Journalists, Publishers Won't Let Us

619d ago ... This was originally going up on GB but it was declined. -- There's always this struggle... this insatiable struggle between the powers that be and the people at the bottom. In between those two sides is supposed to be a force to mediate how both sides see and react to each other, we sometimes call them news outlets, bloggers or information aggregators. The thing is, while people want the...

It Doesn't Matter

669d ago ... Some people would say that something important happened in the gaming world over the weekend. Judging by the amount of articles about a certain gaming topic and the amount of comments across many sites on such articles, those people would be right. However, when considering this, one must first consider the difference between an event and activity. An event is when something happens. It does...

Why Gaming Will (Eventually) Surpass Literature

674d ago ... I want to start off by saying that in no way is this writing piece a critique of Literature itself. Video games and literature are two distinct mediums. Both however can be used to express one’s messages and ideas, much like music and films. I know most of you would outright disagree with the title, but allow me to clarify why. Literature had been around for a very long time. From the Epic o...

What if Shadow of the Colossus was released in today's gaming environment?

724d ago ... As a young boy climbing Barba’s snowy-white beard fit for a giant dwarf and at times, hanging on for dear life hoping that I wouldn’t be shaken off and sent flying across the room, I felt the exhilaration and thrill of trying to slay this mighty giant. I had to utilize the environment just to climb aboard and strategically release and grab the fur on its skin while trying to reach stable ground...
