N4G & The Internet vs 90's Gaming & Magazines

43d 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

52d 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...

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

115d 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...

Video game Violence and the hypocrisy relating to it.

192d 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.

Three Things Bravely Default Does Better Than Final Fantasy XIII

202d 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

305d 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.

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

400d 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.

The thing is, while people want the...

It Doesn't Matter

449d 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.

Why Gaming Will (Eventually) Surpass Literature

454d 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?

504d 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...

Microsoft's TV Ambitions are a Cop Out

542d ago ... So, Microsoft have finally stopped pretending there isn’t a third Xbox on the way and has found it in their hearts to give us a date for the big unveiling.

Thoughts on GoW: Ascension Trophy, 'Bros Before Hos.'

593d ago ... Before I start, let me point out that these are, very literally, my first thoughts on the topic. I am open to other points of view, and encourage them. So yeah, thanks and enjoy reading. 'Bros Before Hos.' The phrase often used to guilt a buddy into hanging in the man-cave, rather than going out to dinner with his girlfriend. To those who don't know, however, it is also the title of a Playst...

The Gaming Industry and why some people should put up or shut up.

598d ago ... Unless you don't have internet, you'd have heard by now that EA has stated that they will be instituting microtransactions in all their future games from now on.

No one enjoys the thought of games moving from a form of art entertainment, to a spreadsheet of numbers and statistics on...

Dragon’s Dogma Demo Impressions

905d ago ... Dragon’s Dogma is an epic new game from Capcom that is set to release May 22, 2012. The demo was recently released on PSN and XBOX live this week and I have gotten the chance to try the demo for myself. I consider myself a hardcore RPG fan and enjoy the genre more then any other. When the game was first announced, I saw “RPG” and “Capcom” and immediately thought that, while Capcom specializes i...
