The biggest BS in gaming history.

37d ago ... I'm surprised nobody else has bought this up, but if I have to be the one to do it, so be it. So, what IS the biggest BS in gaming history? Underpowered consoles? Too big a focus on graphics? The prices being too high? None of those. Memorize this line: "You speak of innovation when any attempt at it is dismissed as a gimmick." Do me a favor. Pass that saying on, because it NEEDS to b...

Get it through your skulls;Graphics. Don't. MATTER! (To an extent.)

42d ago ... So news recently came out that Watch Dogs was apparently downgraded graphicswise after its delay. I don't understand HOW they made it look worse. I usually respect the game creators, but I don't know what made them think it looked better than before. I could've had this back in November for the PS4 or Wii U or Xbox 360, yet it was delayed to "polish." Now, is the downgrade worthy of CANCELLI...

Why Gamers Should Care About EA on the Worst Company List

85d ago ... We are quickly approaching that time of the year again. The Consumerist website will be tallying up their nominees for the Worst Company in America. Already they have been getting flooded with votes from participants about who they believe is the worst company. Once again, Electronic Arts has been nominated by many people and I know what some you just did. You either sighed, rolled your eyes, o...

Memoirs of a Senior Gamer: Ye Olde Arcade

86d ago ... So here's how this is going down, your father thought it would be good if you two spent some time with me. Suppose he wants yous to learn some wisdom from an old timer, heh lord knows he never did! Now I don’t like either of you and I'm sure as hell you don’t like me. You give me any lip and you’re on denture duty. Repeat offenders clean the bed pan. Understand? You there, not you the chubby on...

GTA Online: Rockstar's Aim - Misguided or Target Locked?

93d ago ... In recent events - as some of you may already be aware - there was an outbreak of exploits within the virtual world of Grand Theft Auto Online, the subsidiary of Rockstar Games' award-winning fifth instalment into the Grand Theft Auto series. One of these exploits included glitched farming, which allows players to continuously garner significant amounts of Reputation Points, which allowed them...

Why I play: Uncharted 3's MP

152d ago ... Uncharted 3. When you read that, Im sure you'll be thinking bout Nathan Drake and his adventures in the sand. Surely, you wouldnt be thinking bout its multiplayer. Well, Im writing this blog here to change that. Whenever you see the name Uncharted 3, I want you to remember not only of its pretty grand single player, I want you to remember its pretty dang fun mutliplayer. Here's some of the reas...

Breaking Down Xbox one (Part 1: Hardware)

176d ago ... Hardware The Wii U has been hacked (as far as revealing hardware), and Sony has been very open regarding the innards of the PlayStation 4; however, Microsoft has been very tight lipped regarding any finite details regarding their successor to the Xbox 360, Xbox One. All we really have from Microsoft is 8GB of DDR3 RAM 68 GB/s, 32MB eSRAM 200 GB/s, an 8-core custom CPU (still based on an AMD...

Console Contradiction

203d ago ... This is my first blog post, actually its my first post period. So please bare with me. I'm about to talk about the 2 next gen consoles. With Gamescom, TGS, and E3 all finished, I think its fine to compare the consoles now. Of course with new information coming out each day, we can never know what to expect. The PS4 could suck with one post, vice versa with Xbox One. So here's my story. My...

Regarding Ubisoft's Muck-Up of Watch Dogs

263d ago ... Yesterday, a trailer showcasing actress/comedienne Aisha Tyler's cameo appearance in Watch Dogs was released. For some, Tyler's appearance was nothing to blink twice over, while for others, footage showcasing her character could not come fast enough. Now, I'm sure most people are wishing it never came at all. The [unfinished] video showcased Aisha Tyler walking down a street in the more busi...

8th Generation - The Generation of Blood

320d ago ... Looking back, the 7th Gen of gaming was fairly tame. No one actually "lost". Wii, PS3, 360, DS, and PSP each carved out a respectable market, and a few of these (like the PS3 and 360) are still getting big-name releases. Sure, there were times of drought. Sure, there were moments when a console got bruised (like RRoD, or the PSN hack), but no one failed outright. It was the first time that had...

My top 5 stupid lies about nintendo in the last days.

337d ago ... 5-"Frostbite 2 didn’t run well on the Wii U" Frostbite 2 supposedly didn’t run well on the Wii U… but Cry engine 3, which produced arguably the most graphically intensive experience to date for consoles with Crysis 3… was running on the Wii U… and running very well. But hey, that Frostbite 2… it can’t do it! The fact is that the console contains the necessary requirements to play B2 (B2 M...

Can Hacking/Piracy Be Considered Acceptable?

355d ago ... So with the recent news of the Wii U's supposed hacking, I thought I would ask the question presented in the headline while providing my own thoughts on the matter. Piracy is something I think almost any big gamer is guilty of at one point or another and whether they know it or not. Downloading a free game or perhaps playing a copy that friend made for you, for instance. The use of ROMs, ISO...

Really, what's the point of another GTA?

360d ago ... I've come to the point of realizing that most gamers have their niche. Some of us love MMO's, some dig FPS games, alot of us go in for open world single player titles. The list goes on... But something else I've been realizing that some games aren't really evolving like others are. Take for example GTA V. From what I'm seeing the game has some beautiful graphics, intriguing storylines, and,...

Xbox Live Hacked by Anonymous?

371d ago ... An article from yesterday raised the idea that Xbox Live may have been hacked by Anonymous in retaliation for the rumours suggesting Microsoft's next console will be always-online. N4G mods have since changed the title and source, but you can see the comments do not reflect what the current title suggests.

Is All Publicity Really Good Publicity?

371d ago ... Let’s be honest here, it’s raining s*** on Microsoft at the minute. With ‘always online’ rumors circulating, Adam Orth dealing with it, PS4 gaining momentum unchallenged and potential hack or service issues; they’re really not having a good time. While it’s fair to say that none, or at least not all, of the terrible things happening could translate to Xbox 3, there is still damage to the Xbox...

Getting your Xbox profile back. Not!

398d ago ... I have 2 Xbox 360's so this is not about how the Xbox sucks and it's not about how the Xbox live sucks. It is about how to get your profile back. You can't. Microsoft has locked down Xbox live like Ft. Knox. I understand why they have. They don't want to be hacked and after what happened to the Psn network who could blame them. The problem lies in how to get your profile back when somethin...

Why Indulge Hatred?

408d ago ... A recurring theme with the comment system here is that more often than not, if you're a fan of something and you say something positive in a related article about that something, you'll receive a lot of agrees and bubble ups. And this is perfectly fine. What I don't understand is when people agree with an obvious troll. This has happened on negative articles pertaining to any of the big thre...

To All Those Arguing About Next-Gen And PC graphics

422d ago ... Whether we may claim that gameplay is a lot more important than story, deep inside we all care about the graphical capabilities of the systems we play on. Lately with the reveal of the PS4 I've heard some interesting things throughout the board (which by the way resembles to everything we went through in the beginning of the last generation). For example, I've seen many posts where some people...

Remember that Miiverse debug menu?

436d ago ... Shortly after the Wii U's release in November of 2012, a NeoGAF user by the name of Trike found a way to access some sort of debug menu for the Wii U. Listed on the debug menu were a bunch of games titles: Super Mario Bros. WiiU metroid Zombie Yoshi's Island Wii U Flipnote Studio Donkey Kong Wii Fit Soul Hackers resident evils metal gear solid Final Fantasy 3 Dragon Quest 10 Fa...

XBL on iOS: Christmas Gift or Sour Eggnog?

483d ago ... Xbox live is a decent service, some would say it’s the best, some wouldn’t but, fees aside, it’s pretty good for gamers. Having access to XBL was one of, if not the ONLY reason to buy a Windows 8 phone/tablet over Android or iOS, that I can think of right now. So it comes as a shock that MS has decided to share the love with other platforms. One could argue that this move will be a boost for...
