N4G: Then and Now

217d ago ... With the relaunch of my site this past May came my first reacquaintance with N4G since late 2012, and while I'm happy to see the site's become even more popular and the submissions pouring in from all corners of the galaxy, I have been alarmed and disappointed at the state of its community - specifically, the lions pit which is the approval system now. I thought going into this post, some qu...

Borderlands The Pre-Sequel: The Jack of Hearts

250d ago ... We’ve all killed Handsome Jack by now. We’ve killed him with a swift shotgun strike right between the eyes, a plasma-infused punch to the jaw, and even a thrown rotary saw-blade to the chest. In the context of the communities collective playtime, Jack has died hundreds of thousands of deaths, and each one of them has been more cynically enjoyable than the last. Jack’s demise was relieving, h...

What is up with number 3?

406d ago ... Sequels are really hard to make because the developers works harder to make a better game while retaining the charm of the first game but sometimes when a sequel becomes really good and way better than the first. Developers think about making a third one which either fails to impress because of the high bar the second game sets or never gets released and on rare occasions it becomes the best...

#GamerGate #StopGamerGate2014? More Like Print Media Versus Viral Media

477d ago ... So, I've been thinking of what could be the real issue behind the recent string of places like Giant Bomb, Gamespot, Eurogamer, Polygon (although that site has a two fold reason), and now Game Informer, have come out against GamerGate because one person somehow represents hundreds of thousands of people. Outside of the fact that people simply do not do research enough into this situation, I tri...

Surviving Indie Game “Success”

575d ago ... [b]By Borut Pfeifer, Plush Apocalypse Productions[/b] I’ve made hundreds of people angry at me for something I said on the internet. I guess that’s one way of defining success. When you set out on the path of independent game development, you naturally look to successful games and their makers as role models to follow. You become convinced, because these are the stories you hear, that you...

A Game Designer’s Approach

579d ago ... [b]By Erik.B.Skjoldhaug, Co-Founder at Lumi Games AS.[/b] I can only speak for myself, but for me game design and being in the game industry is about creating what you dream about. Be creative and actually shape and mold your dreams into stories and gameplay. For me it’s not worth making a game if you don’t have a personal attachment to it. There are a lot of people or companies that blat...

Feline Fine with Catlateral Damage

587d ago ... [b]By Kyle[/b] Catlateral Damage allows me to be the jerk I have always wanted.  Without a care in the world, I, as a callous cat, will jump on top of whatever I please and using my dexterous paw, I will knock that damn row of books from the shelf.  I will take my righteous paw and set that television to the ground.  I am all that is cat. I am all that is lion.  I am all that is tiger.  I am...

Secrets behind successful multiplayer - part 1

594d ago ... Foreword by the author: I apologize for spamming to promote my blog post a couple of weeks ago. That will never happen again. Call of Duty's multiplayer is no e-sport . It’s not even a solid foundation for long-term play . At launch , there’s hundreds of thousands online . Two weeks later, it quickly fades down. Advanced Warfare isn’t likely to change that (but there’s still a chance). How m...

Assassin's Creed Unity - Plot Predictions

691d ago ... As I'm sure you all know, Ubisoft's officially confirmed the existence of the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity game, and its narrative backdrop of the 'Révolution française'. With this new (albeit fairly vague) info out in the public domain, 've done a quick bit of research on the French Revolution, and I'm starting to think I can make an educated guess about the pseudo-history and potential...

10 Reasons why the Wii U Wins!!!

701d ago ... I am not going to write a "love" letter about Nintendo(though admittedly I do love Nintendo) and I am not going to try and be a "shield" for all the negative outlooks on the Wii U. What I am going to do is simply compile a list of all the strengths and positive things that I (emphasis on the I) see and have found as a Wii U owner... 1. Backwards compatibility-I can't stress the awesomeness...

Oversaturation & The Nostalgia Effect

1007d ago ... I keep noticing a lot of posts on various forums of people bashing some of the next-gen graphics and gameplay that we've been privy to thus far. I look at some of these teaser videos and gameplay demos and wonder how the hell anyone could look at this and say they're not impressed. The only possible reason I can come up with is that gamers of the latter generation have become oversaturated w...

Microtransactions: Are they really as bad as we think?

1043d ago ... Fairly recently, I've noticed a large flux after EA's announcement of including microtransactions in all their games, people have been going berserk about anything that involves microtransactions and throwing a blanket of "bad" over all of it. I'm here to talk about microtransactions objectively and explain that they can actually be a very good thing for gaming. So let's get this out of the...

Playstation 4...The Future is Now

1084d ago ... It's been two days since Sony excited the world with the official unveiling of the Playstation 4. Months of speculation and rumors were finally put to rest and whether your a longtime Playstation supporter or not, one thing was certain. On February 20th 2013, Sony was talking and the gaming world was listening. In the last two days, hundreds of articles and gamer blogs were written talking abou...

Remedy Made the Right Decision on Alan Wake's Linearity

1417d ago ... For as long as I could remember, a vocal minority constantly trashes Alan Wake’s linear approach once it was announced. The sudden exclusivity deal coupled with the original open world design being trashed years earlier lead to a bunch of undeserved hate against the game. Some blamed Remedy’s decision on the 360’s hardware limitations to handle early builds ( http://www.you...

What Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Should've Been

1491d ago ... It is so easy to knock the final product of what dozens, perhaps hundreds of individuals put their blood, sweat and tears into. Whether intentional or incidental, those who decide to release a product to a market are liable to having their product reviewed, praised, demerited, hated, loved and everything in between. This is definitely one of those very times. Fret not, as I have no interest in...

Homebrew vs Piracy: Know the Difference

1502d ago ... There is a constant negative reaction toward hackers, and the words piracy and hacking becomes synonymous. This hate of hackers and their work becomes more prominent to me as I watch countless videos and articles of hacker-related articles. One of possible reasons could be the result of Sony's lawsuits against numinous hackers. I am here clear up this nonsense by explaining the difference of h...

Not every video game needs multiplayer

1628d ago ... Its a sad fact that so many younger gamers will pass on a great game if it doesnt feature multiplayer. They miss out on many incredible AAA single player games like Dead Space , Bioshock , Oblivion , Deus Ex and many others. Its more a generational thing than anything else. You see us old fart gamers that grew up playing video games in the 80s and 90s were winged on hundreds of excelle...
