Bubl Draw: A Toddler Review

237d ago ... Some of you N4G detectives may have sussed out that I have a tiny person in my life, The Toddler. What this means for my gaming is that there’s a whole mess of iPad apps downloaded to my Mini, and I am not their target audience. Bubl Draw was sent my way for review, and I know I'm not an isolated case of parenthood on N4G, so consider this your app recommendation for the week! While I was oc...

8th Generation - The Generation of Blood

534d ago ... Looking back, the 7th Gen of gaming was fairly tame. No one actually "lost". Wii, PS3, 360, DS, and PSP each carved out a respectable market, and a few of these (like the PS3 and 360) are still getting big-name releases. Sure, there were times of drought. Sure, there were moments when a console got bruised (like RRoD, or the PSN hack), but no one failed outright. It was the first time that had...

Nintendo's Wii U - Failure To Launch

651d ago ... The Wii U has been launched with some lackluster sales, especially when compared to, well, anything else. The “tablet” gimmick is obvious with the controller with a screen on it. It looks like a Leapster pad. Nintendo was obviously hoping to prey off the “every 9 year old wants an iPad nowadays” mentality, and I can’t really blame them, but at the same time, it was an incredibly juvenile and...

The Key To the Wii U's Success

770d ago ... Graphics. Really? Yes. The Graphics are the key. If people find that the PS4 and 720 aren't large leaps in appearance for their games, then third-party devlopers will be willing to put their games the same way on the Wii U, because of its iPad style controller, which will and kind of already has people attracted, and also can open up new experiences. With third party support, people will pro...

"The Cloud" scares me...

1218d ago ... Call me crazy, call me an idiot, call me paranoid, call me whatever the heck you want. The Cloud scares the living crap out of me. No not "The Cloud" the feature, "The Cloud" the evil beast. See I'm for "The Cloud" as a feature, you know like the PSN storage for saves. This use of "The Cloud" is great. Seriously I think the theory of an option for backup stored on the web is the best idea fo...

PlayStation Portable 2

1394d ago ... Sony just announced the PSP2, current known as codename NGP (Next Gen Portable?). So if you missed it, then you suck at life. Excuse me, if you missed then I got you cover WITH ALL THE DETAILS. Alright here it is. First things first let’s get into the specs. A 5 inch OLED screen 960 x 544 (if you have an iPhone 4 that’s what this screen looks like), ARM Corte-A9 core (4 core CPU), SGX5...

So, does 2011 new consoles now prove that future consoles will be handheld?

1431d ago ... So, here's a theory that no one seems to be thinking about, we've got our 'On Live' we've got our mobile phones, we've got our gaming laptops, we've got our tablets/iPads, and, soon we'll have our 3DS and PSP 2. Does this mean that the home consoles are dead because the normal '5 year' life span isn't taking place? In this post, I will give the reasons why home consoles are 'dead', and why w...

I Don't Believe In Casual Games

1669d ago ... Ha ha ha, the Playstation Move looks like a glowing dildo—a ploy to capture the “casual” audience no doubt. Now that the 13 year old giggles are satisfied, I’d like to congratulate Sony on what possibly could be the most important introduction to the gaming industry after Apple’s iPad. And I must stress the word “important” because either it could be the second coming of the Playstation brand,...
