Rage of the Tomb Raider and Why You Should Care.

9d ago ... I don't like exclusives. I don't mean the games themselves but the fact that they are limited to one system. Exclusives are made, and thought up primarily to sell the system they're made for. The direct implication of the console manufacturer into the development process is often a positive thing as the game is better optimized and takes full advantage of the hardware at it's disposal. Also som...

COD AW looks great but is just another lag fest.

12d ago ... With Activision finally making the jump to next gen I have been waiting for those magical words everyone wants to hear - dedicated servers. But, looks like COD is in the P2P hosting business for the duration. That means all your superb games and high K/D ratio mean exactly nothing. Not saying you don't have skill, but you don't know if the guy on the other end is shooting first and dying f...

Sony didn't need to win Gamescom; They have already won 2014

15d ago ... Today I saw two different strategies when comparing Microsoft to Sony and their approach to gamescom. Microsofts announcements were more aimed at selling more xbox ones, particularly in europe This was done by really bringing the hype for the big guns Fifa - Cod - Halo MCC/5 beta - Quantum Break - Fable - AC:U - Tomb Raider. The Fifa stuff was pretty pointless because we know of legends...

Octodad: Dadliest Catch: You, Slapstick and Sushi

38d ago ... [b]From Herobyclicking[/b] He must have been a gangly pre-teen. I am sure that he felt out of place standing a foot above everyone. He desperately looked for ways to fit in. He dressed and talked like the other kids, but still his awkwardness and clumsiness would would always make him fearful that he would reveal his true nature. He is an octopus. A true cephalopod, though he breathes air an...

At a Glance: Young Horses, Inc.

38d ago ... [b]Young Horses, Inc.[/b] The Young Horses were unofficially formed in 2011 at GDC. After being nominated as a Student Showcase Winner for Octodad 8 of the 18 original creators decided to form a company to make a bigger and better Octodad. Young Horses strives to push the boundaries of game design in order to create experiences that players have not seen before - they think that innovation...

Turtle Beach's Beautiful Game Search is Turning Out to Be a Joke.

46d ago ... Turtle Beach recently started a "campaign" to crown the best game of all time. They've narrowed it down to the top 15 games that people have been pushing for. Here is that list: Borderlands 2 Call of Duty: Ghosts Dwarf Fortress Far Cry 3 FIFA 14 Final Fantasy X Grand Theft Auto V Halo 3 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Pac Man Resident Evil Super Mario Galaxy The Elder Scrolls V:...

Sony Won Day 0 of E3 2014

78d ago ... Microsoft's press conference definitely caught my attention. C'mon Halo 1-4 for 60 bucks... aaaaaaand beta access to Halo 5! Not to mention an anniversary drop of Halo 2, probably the most competitive FPS of its time, I couldn't have been the only 20 year old kicking and screaming (Will Ferrel?) That moment they showed us Halo fans what we've been longing for. I instantly decided to save up...

More Wii U words

84d ago ... So, there are lots of things wrong with the Wii U. Marketing has been confusing, the games have come slowly, third party support is gone, the asking price is too high and the tech is too old. Nintendo doesn't have a problem that people need to insightfully boil things down to; they have a large, unlabeled umbrella full of issues collected like so many undesirable Pokemon. That's the lens the...

The Nintendo Way

139d ago ... My first post so go easy on me. But correct me if Im wrong. I feel like I like Nintendo's approach is what we should want when it comes to game development, and yes even the amount of time it takes to make their titles. The vibe I get from Nintendo is them not conforming to the insanely fast-moving video game market that we are seeing today from the gaming world. Have we come to expect m...

Fans: No Matter What You Choose, You've Won

160d ago ... I love video games; love 'em to death honestly. I've been gaming ever since I was a little baby, playing Mario when I was barely speaking sentences, then Sonic when I was into Saturday morning cartoons, Jak & Daxter in junior high, Halo when I was entering high school and now a little mix of everything in between. Video games are most certainly my passion and certainly hold a very dear place in...

Shaq Fooled

171d ago ... Hey! Did you hear? They are making a sequel to Shaq Fu! The tournament fighter centered on the Big Aristotle, often seen as one of the worst games of all time is back for round two! I’ll admit when I heard this news it did put a smile on my face. I’m a huge basketball fan, so I always welcome offbeat titles loosely centered on the sport. Games like Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City, Barkl...

What Is Machinima?

172d ago ... Okay, before we begin I have to make sure that people know that I did work for Machinima.Com back in the day and this discussion isn’t going to be talking about Machinima.com, just Machinima. So will only be mentioned vaguely Source Filmmaker. Machinima is short for Machine Cinema, it is most commonly used to describe vides made using video games. I am not talking about game commentaries, th...

7 Aspirations for Destiny

173d ago ... 2014 looks set to be an incredibly exciting time for the videogame industry. Next to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 edging gracefully into the twilight years of their impressive legacies, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are slowly but surely gathering the pace required to supersede them, and with games like Titanfall, Rust, Hotline Miami 2 and Dark Souls 2 all on the horizon, whatever your fo...

Why am I getting dejavu from 6th gen?

184d ago ... Everything that's been happening seems VERY familiar, and I'm surprised nobody else has noticed. The PS4 is the best choice. It's cheap, powerful, has great multiplats, a few great exclusives, and offers innovation aside from the console at a different price. The PS4 is selling extremely well, and is dominating the other 2. Didn't the EXACT same thing happen with the PS2? The PS2 is the b...

Halo 5 new XBO graphics King?

186d ago ... Let’s get this out of the way. Graphics don't mean the world to me, I play 8bit games, I spend countless hours playing Hot Line Miami, 3D dot heros, and other games that will never be considered GOTY graphics contenders. But thanks to what is now known as “Resolution-gate”, I’ve been wondering a lot about how exactly Halo 5 is going to look. Microsoft may have jumped the gun by announcing...

Death of the Console FPS

200d ago ... In a time before the micro-transaction, the glittering brightness of 1080p and the unflinching fluidity of an unbreakable 60 frames per-second, there was a period of simplicity and incredible design. For due to the remarkable feats of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Halo 3 before it, 2007 provided us with two of the most ground breaking and unmistakable first-person shooters ever created....

Why I chose Xbox One

205d ago ... Ever since Sony announced the PS4, the decision on which nex-gen console to choose had been plaguing me. Like many, I was a PS2 owner who switched to Xbox when Halo 1 arrived on the scene and later purchased a 360 when that came out. I was always happy with my 360, but occasionally I'd look over to the Sony camp and become a little envious at all the Naughty Dog action going on over there. T...

PS4 vs X1: The Real Battle Is Still Ahead

271d ago ... The PS4 is out! So is the XBox One! The gaming world is on fire! Sales charts and review scores for launch games and "first impressions" and everything in between is slamming the front page of N4G at a startling pace. And of course, plenty of people are drawing allegiances, declaring winners, and pledging their loyalty to their favorite brands. But it doesn't really matter. The real battle i...

An Xbox-only Gamer's Move to Playstationation

281d ago ... As the sun sets on the current generation, I reflect on the last 7 years of my gaming life. I was a spritely 14 year old when I got a 360 in 2006. I saw some great times with the 360. I think about my love for the fable series (fable III is a myth), the friends I made playing the gears series, and hell, I was just playing halo 3 the Thursday before PS4 launch. I've also had brief run ins with P...

Stephen Elop and His "Plans" For Xbox. A Savior or Terminator?!

292d ago ... I have chosen to start this blog thanks to the recent report from Bloomberg that suggested Stephen Elop, former CEO of Nokia and a potential candidate for the CEO position of Microsoft, is considering to sell the Xbox brand. Imagine the news when you wake up from a good sleep and go to N4G only to read this following headline in the future: "Microsoft has sold its Xbox brand to (ANONYMOUS)"...
