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

60d 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”

158d 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

162d 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

170d 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

177d 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

274d 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!!!

284d 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

590d 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?

626d 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

667d 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

1000d 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

1074d 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

1085d 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

1211d 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...

There is no such thing as a hardcore gamer

1271d ago ... Ask any avid video game fan if he or she is a hardcore gamer and, 9 out of 10 times, the answer will most likely be yes. Then ask any gamer as to what constitutes a core gamer and you’ll be hit with mixed results. So what truly constitutes a core gamer? Someone who plays all games across all genres? Someone who only plays mature rated games? Someone who plays for hundreds of hours a week? I mea...

Used Games - Win the battle. Lose the war?

1311d ago ... A fable 3 developer recently stated that "secondhand sales cost us more in the long run than piracy these days." While no further explanation was given, the focus on used games has much to do with the fact that despite the best of efforts, piracy cannot be stopped. The sale of used games seems a more attractive battle to developers, one that they may actually be able to win. While i underst...

Yes I said "we" in reference Sony

1380d ago ... I have caught a lot of heat for my use of the word we when referring to a producer and us the consumer. Now I wan to be clear I am not saying that I am apart of the company but rater we need each other. I am not going to give you a lesson in economics but they provide entertainment and we buy it. Thus "WE" as in the company and the consumer are dependent on each other. If one hurts the other fe...
