Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 shaping up to be hyper-realistic

31d ago ... Set in an open world, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is apparently being everything that fixes the issues of it's predecessor: Open world, day night cycle, realistic weather systems, realistic physics, no hand-holding, realistic scouting, skill upgrades like in real life, extremely difficult and dangerous world design. It's no longer going from A to B but far more complicated. Now you can mask gun s...

QTE's and Cinematic Games Aren't Going Away

152d ago ... It's Monday, I've been up for about an hour and a half as of the writing of this blog, and I decided I'd check out my youtube subscriptions to see if there was anything good to start out the day with. I saw a video from AVGN, Angry Joe reviewed The Order 1886, and Jim Sterling did a Jimquisition about Cinematics. All in all, some good videos. Angry Joe and Jim Sterling coincidentally ended u...

Until Dawn | My Prayers Have Been Answered

210d ago ... Growing up, I always had an insatiable fascination with experiencing a horror movie in an interactive fashion. Whether that be being cast as an actor in a horror film or experiencing a true horror story in video game form. I don't mean supernatural or undead like The Evil Within or The Walking Dead; I mean a gritty, serial killer-esque thematic on par with the Halloween franchise. As a younger...

Sony to Nintendo Blood Butter Voodoo

1149d ago ... Well, after an underwhelming E3 when most of my predictions that I made on a previous blog post came true, I would begin to pat myself on the back but I could have never participated what was announced from the respective companies on this post. To be honest, I was expecting a little more from both companies respectively as each presentation was overshadowed by at least one or more jarring noti...

N4G's hypocritical fan base.

1419d ago ... I recent submitted a news story from Eurogamer about an interview with Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream. The co-founder Guillaume de Fondaumiere mentioned how he had lost 1 million sales due to the used market. Some thing caught my eye in the comments. The was a lot of support for the used game market. That is fine but not many brought up the big question. They lost at least 1 million in sale...

Some Criticism for LA Noire

1501d ago ... Okay... E3's over, PSN's back up (even if my free PSP games are lost to the void because of a programming error a high school freshman studying BASIC would have picked up on) and the Rapture didn't happen. Now unless Battlefield 3 devs announce something like having one less texture in the PS3 version or something of equal earth-shattering importance, I should be able to make a post stay up on...

L.A. Noire Impressions PS3

1512d ago ... Any title by Rockstar excites the gamers.With GTA and Max Payne on their resume it's not hard to predict why.When L.A. Noire was announced, many thought that L.A. Noire would have a similar effect like Red Dead Redemption - Game of the year 2010 - in 2011.Although the game looks like a sandbox action adventure like Mafia, Red Dead Redemption or GTA, it's safe to say L.A. Noire is quite differen...

2010: The year of crap endings

1669d ago ... Is it just me, or did a lot of game endings suck this year? (last year, whatever) I don't expect incredible endings from every game, but usually the AAA titles should be decent. Yeah, we got Red Dead's very meaningful and arguably taboo-breaking finale, and the epic suicide mission in Mass Effect 2. Hell, in Bayonetta you get to punch God into the sun. I'm freaking catholic and I thought that...

PS3 OR 360 OR BOTH Part 1

1676d ago ... Its a question that gets asked on this site pretty much every day "which console is the best" and to be honest in my opinion its to close to call. On one hand you have the PS3 which is clearly the more powerful console, it has a great roster of games exclusive and multiplat and it has a blu-ray drive which is a huge bonus. On the other hand you have the 360 which also has a great roster of game...

Should I give Mass Effect 2 Another Chance?

1678d ago ... Here is the story. I am a PS3 owner who was pretty excited downloading the demo of Mass Effect 2. I booted it up and I started to play through it but for some reason, it didnt wow me like I thought it would. Bioware games have scored some points with me in the past but there were some elements to this game that I didnt like. The biggest gripe was with the cut scenes. They are pretty long an...

DEATH BY GAMES

1747d ago ... After watching the heavy rain style GTA episode made by Ezequiel Guerisoli, it got me wondering. Could the gaming industry kill the blockbuster movie industry?? Come next generation and generations after, graphics are gonna be truly "photo realistic" with modder's like Ezequiel being as dedicated as they are, theres gonna be plenty more of these episodes in the years to come. Which in turn...

Fanboysim today is extreme

1800d ago ... Why do we play games? This is a question that many have asked me to which I reply" We play it to enjoy them and step out of reality for example jumping of the empire state in liberty city or being kratos and killing a bunch of dudes to get that feeling of satisfaction or feeling like im on the top of the world". There are gamers who play games to go through this thrill ride and then there are f...

More Games for the Young Players on PS3

1900d ago ... Sony needs to have more original games for the younger players. If Sony does this then all of these marketing stuff will follow. They need to have characters that are compelling and can't be found on any other system like Mario & Pokemon. PlayStation 1 & 2 used to have these games. Crash Bandicoot, Digimon, Monster Hunter, Klonoa, Jumping Jack Flash etc. Sony used to have an answer for al...

2010 games you shouldn't miss - playing the hardcore way: Heavy Rain

1904d ago ... Heavy Rain A very intense and compelling experience The trophy one unlocks right upon finishing the first chapter is "Thank you for supporting Interactive Drama", so that's exactly what Heavy Rain was in the minds of its creators and what it really is as a game. It sort of feels like playing a movie and you decide how it should go on and proceed. It is an intense, unique experience and...

Why Heavy Rain must succeed

Micromania Game Show: round-up

2098d ago ... This week-end was organized the Micromania Game Show, a similar event to E3, excluding the announcements. Gamers can play upcoming games and see footage of other ones.

This article will give you my impressions over several games, including Heavy Rain, Splinter Cell Conviction, God of War 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2,...
