The Nintendo Way

8d 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

30d 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

40d 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?

41d 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

43d 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?

54d 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?

56d 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

70d 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

75d 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

141d 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

151d 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?!

162d 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)"...

Breaking Down Xbox one (Part 2: Content and Cloud)

175d ago ... Content TV integration, entertainment, original content, and original games seem to be the big push for buying an Xbox One. TV integration is accessible through connecting your current cable box through the Xbox One’s built in HDMI-In port. Apps like Skype, NFL apps, music, movies, and more are being used to turn the Xbox One into a the “all-in-one entertainment system”. The final part of...

Next Gen and the NFL

221d ago ... Every year I wait for the NFL draft which is alot like E3, than you have Gamescom which is alot like preseason. E3 shows me which new games I will be drafting to my console. And Gamescom shows me how they are going to potentially play. Our consoles are like are favorite teams, every year your team is going to the Superbowl. And every year our console is going to win the console war. With...

The PS4 has no Games only Indies.

229d ago ... This is something that is really annoying me in threads and comment sections. "...AAA exclusives Games announced Ryse vs Killzone:SF Forza vs #Driveclub (an excuse for a racing game) Dead Rising 3 vs What ever dafaq Knack is Sunset Overdrive vs The Order: 1886 Halo 5 vs...............? Titanfall vs Infamous? Black Tusk new IP vs..................? Project Spark vs.................?...

A Final Look at Halo 4

230d ago ... If you’re looking for a physical analogy for the comparative differences between Halo 4 and its predecessors, then you need look no further than the map Ragnarok. A battle-worn version of its big brother Valhalla, Ragnarok’s thinning grass, sterile metallic structures and lack of soul represents a small cog in the rapidly corroding machine that is Halo 4. But has the damage to the series alr...

Thank you Sony.

252d ago ... We have all been there toying with the idea to just give up on gaming and live a normal life they say. But sometimes you have to wonder to yourself if there is such a thing as a normal life without games. I had this episode about 3 months back after a long run with Microsoft's console that is the Xbox 360.I was playing as regular as every day and starting to get very bored with the online as...

Sequelization: It's a double standard.

254d ago ... There's a question I often hear posed by many gamers and it goes something like this. "Why is it that Mario games always seem to get a free pass when it comes to sequels and rehashes, yet game franchises like Assassins creed, God of War, Halo and the like get criticised and sometimes even marked down for it?" Well I have a theory for why that seems to be the case and it goes as follows....

What if?

265d ago ... What if Napoleon had kept going? What if the cold war was an actual war? What if Sean Penn had decided not to do acting? So many alternative histories could have been made (I think we can all agree the Sean Penn one needs to happen now) but why look into the past. The past is the past and we should move on. However, what about the future? The point of this blog is to explore the fanboy's orgasm...

Enough With Wanting Sequels

285d ago ... You know, you'd think with a new generation of consoles ready to move into full swing, people would be excited for new experiences and trying out never before seen ideas, but all I've seen lately are people wanting more of the same. Well, not "lately" but it's been talked about a lot more. I've ragged on the Xbox One a lot recently because Microsoft are terrible for the industry, but the one...
