Monster Rancher + PlayStation Vita = Win

1233d ago ... First, a quick introduction of what Monster Rancher is for those who don't know: Quote: "In Monster Rancher, one takes the role of a monster breeder whose goal is to raise monsters to fight in tournaments. The breeder must take it in hand to raise the monster throughout its life, training it, keeping it healthy, making an exercise schedule, and trying to maximize its abilities before it die...

The Five Mysteries of the smartphone vs handheld debate

1236d ago ... It's hard to believe, but the "smartphones will overtake the handheld market" punchline has been around since the launch of the Nintendo DS over half a decade ago. Yet, the DS/PSP generation has been the highest-selling handheld generation of all time. There are plenty of inexplicable things that I keep reading over and over and over and over again in this ongoing "handhelds vs smartphones" deb...

8 Game Case Mistakes

1349d ago ... Whenever people go to buy a new game one of the first things they look at is the back of the game case. Why do we look at it? The pictures and the description can tell us if its going to be a game we'd like or not. But sometimes these descriptions and pictures are wrong. Here's my list of the top 8 mistakes on video game cases. Why 8? Because 5 is to few and 10 is to overused. 8. Description...

RDR: Undead Nightmare, or "How to push gameplay mechanics past their breaking point"

1371d ago ... Red Dead Redemption's a game that interested me from the start. However, my experience with GTAIV was less than pleasant because of the game's (IMO) extremely poor gameplay. And because RDR obviously runs on the same engine, I had my reservations. But recently the game was on sale for 20$, and at the same time all its DLC was available as a bundle for 10$ on the PSN--essentially a 90$ value for...

An unimportant opinion regarding call of duty from a hater of the series

1384d ago ... Alright look, ill be honest, im a cod hater. Take that for what you will, but plain and simple I find the franchise grossly overrated. I’m somewhat jealous of the success that encompasses the game more than what the actual game entails. I hate on cod solely because it has the power to sell millions and millions of copies day 1 while my all time favorite game franchises barely break the 500,000...

Moderation confusion

1410d ago ... If you take a look at the guidelines of this site and then take a look at news stories and comments here, I bet you'll be confused as to how the moderation is on this site. According to the guidelines, blog posts will not be posted as news, flamebait is not allowed, trolling is not allowed, etc... But what is seen everyday? Every single type of infraction gets passed until someone with the p...

So This is Supposed to Get Me to Like Nintendo Again?

1444d ago ... Like many people going into E3 this year, I was excited to see what Nintendo's new console would bring to the table. Would it be an iteration of the Wii with better graphics? Would it be a traditional controller and console? Would it be the next revolution in gaming? I was both excited and freaked out. At the end, I was just confused. First off, let me tell you that I am not a huge fan o...

E3 2011 Ubisoft Press Conference

1448d ago ... Ok this press conference wasn't as boring as the EA one but not much made me look forward to the next 12 months. Anyway here's my responses to the announcements. - Rayman Origins. Seems like fun. Also has local co op like a lot more games should. - Driver San Francisco. I wasn't a fan and still not sold on it. Also confused on what's going on. - Far Cry 3. Not my type of game but vis...

Adam Sessler " I pay for Xbox Live... you don't end you with the PSN debacle"

1452d ago ... My excitement for E3 has me going back to visit some of the old podcast that I used to listen to for E3 predictions before I finally had enough BS from the people on them. G4 Feedback and IGN Beyond are the most notable but I refuse to go back to IGN so I checked out Feedback. Now I am listing and the topic of COD Elite service comes up and as if the gods were trying to tell me to stay away,...

Sony theoretically endangers our lives :P

1461d ago ... When I signed up for PSN and selected my online ID, I pretty much thought my personal information was perfectly safe and my real identities remained anonymous to everyone I felt the need to keep it from. Every Gamer at some point has refused friend invites from individuals to strange for their liking. I have had messages from sick gamer asking for my address so in his words 'he could rape my...

Why is Sony so shady?

1487d ago ... This is something that has bothered me periodically over the last couple of years. I admit I liked the PS2 but I kind of thought Sony lost the mission plan when the PS3 launched. They seemed to go the opposite direction of the PS2 and it left me perplexed. I mean the PS1 and PS2 literally dominated the market, the consoles were inexpensive, offered fun games, even if the graphics weren't the be...

Playstation Network downtime

1491d ago ... The Playstation Network has been down now for over 3 days and the effects are starting to show. There has been the usual rage, despair and oaths never to touch Sony product ever again. My own PS3 died last week after 4 years of gaming and good times. I was able to copy most of my saved data and I had bought a new slim 320 GB PS3. But because of the downtime I haven't been able to log on PSN...

Console Disappointments: PS3 Home

1498d ago ... This isn’t the usual expressions of negativity made by people who have either never tried it, only dismissed it after a few visits as it was just starting up or refuse to even go near it because of, “broken promises” such as the trophy room. No, this is just some general complaining and criticisms from someone who does use it often. First up is scale and quality of virtual items. The pleasa...

Hay guise, what's trending?

1508d ago ... N4G article trends. Love them, hate them, you're rear end is still being stuck up in the air. If you're wondering who the beautiful gent is accompanying this blog, it's Gucci Mane, and Gucci being trendy (or not, I'm not a woman or metrosexual) is a sort of reference to the motif. I digress, I'm here to offer my 2 cents on what's trending and the idea of trending articles. Let's start wit...

Pointless FFXIII Hindsight

1664d ago ... Or, How I Would have Done It. Like most FFXIII "Haters" I don't actually hate the game. Was just disappointed and underwhelmed with what was finally delivered after much hype and promise. Sight of the first trailer, the very first trailer, which hinted at steroid infused grown-up Kingdom Hearts styled gameplay as well as a possibly expansive interactive world. Not the largely linear title wi...

Story telling & concept design in games...so important yet so NOT in demand!

1670d ago ... There are many games I have played which would be very boring slog fests if it wasn't for a great story. For example Persona 4 is a generic turn based rpg. If it took place within the typical anime inspired setting of dragons, evil empires, and hidden space ships I would have put it down in 5 seconds flat! Instead, Persona 4 opted to establish an atmosphere of mystery in a modern day setting...
