No love for Gears 3 as GOTY contender?

1051d ago ... Lately, I've been reading quite a few forum posts and comments debating about which game deserves to be Game of the Year(GOTY). All off the big name games see their titles thrown around; Batman: AA, Portal 2, BattleField 3, Modern Warfare 2, Skyrim, Zelda: Skyword Sword, Uncharted 3. While most of these titles haven't been released and haven't proven their quality yet, we constantly forget abou...

N4G's Oldest Problem:The Bubble System and How to Fix it.

1071d ago ... The Bubble system is a great system at first. Under this system, the people who make good comments with actual thought and advanced grammar are rewarded with extra bubbles to make even more good posts with and people who troll and use indecent language are reduced to one bubble and cannot post more than once. This works pretty good in theory. It's a merit system that rewards those who actual...

Future Gaming: Focus More on Gameplay than Graphics?

1094d ago ... You could argue with someone about when the next installations of consoles are coming in; and we already see the Wii U now. There are loads of rumors regarding the 'Xbox 720' or 'PS4' - so we might see future consoles in the coming years. When it's coming is anyone's guess, some may argue we are already in the next-generation since the Wii U 'is upon us'. I'm a bit optimistic of the future o...

This Autumn is more than just Battlefield 3 vs Modern Warfare 3

1134d ago ... For as long as I can remember I don’t think we’ve ever had such a variety of great games to look forward to as we do for this Autumn. Just read this: Deus Ex: Human Revolutions Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception Gears of War 3 Assassins Creed: Relevations Batman: Arkham City Resistance 3 Battlefield 3 COD: Modern Warfare 3 Forza Motorsport 4 Rage Dead Island S...

E3 2011: The Microsoft Balancing Act

1175d ago ... After much excitement and rumour in the build up to E3, gamers around the world were treated to, in my opinion, the most underwhelming E3 in a long time, with Microsoft leading the yawn fest. To me, the excitement for E3 is all about the revealing of games and hardware to the public that have never been seen before, despite Nintendo's efforts in the hardware section, I don't think I have been s...

My E3 2011 Impressions - Microsoft

1178d ago ... Let me just start by saying this is my first Blog post so please excuse me if there are grammar mistakes or other problems and feedback is appreciated :) Okay guys let's start with Microsoft as they kicked off E3 this year, In my opinon, Microsoft's Conference was disappointing, admittedly I am a bit of a Playstation fanboy but I wanted Microsoft to show something that would make me want go...

Why would you want to be a fanboy

1214d ago ... I just can't get my head around the fact that some people only want one gaming system and then spend an awful lot of time trolling its rival. Why would a 360 gamer want to miss out on Killzone 3, Uncharted 2 and countless other amazing exclusives. Why would PS3 owners want to miss out on Halo, Gears of War, Fable, Splinter Cell and countless others, It puzzles me. I know the Xbox has had its pr...

Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Beta Impressions (April 18th - Present)

1216d ago ... November 7th 2008, Gears of War 2 had just seen release, met with Critical Acclaim and day one sales figures of over an astounding 2 Million, the future looked bright for Epic Games. Avid Gear Heads made the jump immediately to the sequels multiplayer component and where met with both a tremendous gameplay experience, and some disheartening lag issues. And so began the months of title updates i...

Too old.....NEVER!!!!!

1298d ago ... I can see the future, a bold statement indeed, but one I believe, and here’s what I see……30 years from now gameshops Worldwide over-run by an army of pensioners hungry for the next installment of Call of Duty (which by then is set in deep space as the Human race battle a cyborg army and everyone still camps) or FIFA 40 or Gears of War XIV : 'The nursing home years' or god forbid Quantum Theory...

Random Rant about: Gears of War 3, Mass Effect 3, and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

1325d ago ... Okay. So let me start off first by saying that this is not a troll blog aimed at the Xbox or it's games. This is just a collection of my thoughts on these specific games, and my worries about them. Computers are limited in the amount of power they can put out. This is a given. A computer cannot run anything that requires more power/hardware than it has available. The Xbox, Playstation, and Wii...

Cashing In On Big Names of Games

1344d ago ... The Elder Scrolls, Dead Space, God of War, Gears of War, Metal Gear Solid, Uncharted, Halo, and Call of Duty; these are some of the biggest names of video games. These are also some of the easiest games to sell...whether they're good or not. Don't get me wrong, for the most part these games are good, but occasionally terrible games are released with big names on them. Let's take a look at some...

Made the move from xbox to playstation

1351d ago ... I've had more than three xbox 360 consoles since april 08 and after nearly three years of playing only xbox I decided to sell my new Xbox360 slim and buy a PS3 Move Bundle. This is my first console from Sony, because I never owned a console beside Xbox 360. I didn't even waited to try Kinect before selling my xbox and last year I thought that I am going to be one of the first one to try that pe...

2011 big year in gaming!

1355d ago ... 2011 will no doubt be one of the biggest years in gaming this generation! Featuring games such as Mass Effect 3, Uncharted 3, Portal 2, Elder Scrolls V, Killzone 3, Gears of War 3, Forza 4, Batman Arkham City, Little Big Planet... Must I go on? PS3, xbox360, PC, who wins? Everyone.(Unfortunately there have been no very big Nintendo games announced, but in time they will be.) But what i...

If Microsoft left the gaming industry...

1380d ago ... ...would anything really happen? Before crying "flamebait", try to remember how the market changed when the Dreamcast died and SEGA exited the market. In all honesty, not much changed (although SEGA was/is missed by many). With Kinect as the final grasp of life for the 360 (disagree? Then where are all of Microsoft's studios churning out new games and new IPs?), rumors of the XBOX branch spli...

The PS3 will be my most played system

1397d ago ... The holiday and 2011 is already packed with games, and many more unannounced titles will be seeing the light of day next year. But after making a list of games I'm looking forward to I noticed the PS3 completely dominates every other system and category. Here's a list of everything I'm looking forward to. PS3 PlayStation Move Gran Turismo 5 Little Big Planet 2 Killzone 3 Infamous...

Top 10 Most anticipated games of 2011

1438d ago ... 2011 is looking to be one of the best years for gaming, so I decided to spend a few hours on finding the top 10 most anticipated games of that year. 10: SOCOM 4 US. NAVY SEALS Another SOCOM game might not sound very good after the release of SOCOM:Confrontation but I think Zipper could give it another shot, additionly its full move support and online, thats why this should be a no brai...

Halo Reach and Gears 3: Proof that the 360 Still Has Some Fight Left in it

1488d ago ... In 2007, the Xbox 360 was an unstoppable force. Fresh off the heels of the release of the now famous Gears of War (arguably the true beginning of the next gen of gaming as we know it *on consoles anyway*) Microsofts not-so-little (and quite noisy) box enjoyed exclusive blockbuster release after blockbuster release. Just a few notable hits included sci-fi epic Mass Effect, the gigaton release of...

Why we dont need new consoles

1512d ago ... (Just so you's all know i'm drunk and this is my first post lol) Well its been nearly 5 years since we got our next-gen consoles. There is alot of talk recently about the PS4 Xbox720 and the WiiHD. Just so you know ive had them all, I started with a 360 spent hundereds of pounds on it loved it too bits, to tell you the truth i was spoilt for choice too many games (that i wanted to play) comi...
