Breath of Fire 3: A Beautiful message like no other!

6d ago ... (Spoiler alert. This is for those who have already completed the game.) Back in the day, I was fortunate to play a game on the playstation one. This game was of course Capcom's Breath of fire 3; the third instalment in the series. The series sees the main protagonist Ryu on his search to find out his missing past, and a mysterious goddess that guides him through his travels. Oh... And did I...

Do Better Graphics Make a Better Game? (Round 2! Link's Awakening vs. A Link to the Past)

13d ago ... To get this out of the way right now, Link's Awakening is the first game in the Zelda series I actually completed (beaten and 100%) which gives it a sort of bias in my mind. That being said, I have so much love for the Zelda series as a whole that I believe I can make an honest judgement between each game. What I loved about Link's Awakening is that it is a complete side story that doesn't invo...

PS Plus: More Indies Please.

68d ago ... I've noticed -- as I'm sure most people have -- that Indies are currently seen as the poor man's alternative to AAA titles but I have to completely disagree. First of all I must confess that back in the day when Indies were all the rage on the 360, I too dismissed them out of hand. It wasn't because I needed a new hammer to beat a console with, it was simply because my idea of an Indie game had...

Video Game Collecting

109d ago ... Video Game Collecting "The Beginner's Guide" "The 10 Basics" By WackoDaSniper Written 9-2-12 Published 3-24-14 If you're reading this, you're probably wanting to know more about video game collecting. Well, we all know it's not an easy or cheap collecting interest. Although it is a fun & challenging but enjoyable journey. There are thousands of things to learn, but we'll learn the 1...

From Then Til Now: An Amazing Gaming Journey

120d ago ... I feel lucky to be one of those to say I have been around since the dawn of gaming. Born in the early 70s, I got to see the beginning of what would become one of the most sought after hobbies in human history. Something shared by those, young and old. An industry that was born in peoples basements and garages, to the multi million dollar corporations listed on the stock exchange. From crude 10...

Tales of Genderillia

162d ago ... It is said that there are only two stories in the world...a stranger came to the village and the villagers venture out and meet a stranger. Tales of Xillia had been an interesting journey, to say the least. After almost a week of reflection, I've found it surprising what had and hadn't stuck with me. Most notably, it seems, I'm still reflecting on how it had subverted the accepted Male/Femal...

Gone Home helped me realize what a “game” is to me (and now I don’t like it)

325d ago ... This blog’s been a bit of a journey. It started as a post on game length, pacing and dollar-per-hour value, but I came to a pretty major revelation as I wrote it and decided to flesh that out here. Firstly, let me state that I’m not meaning to badmouth Gone Home here. In fact, I recommend it… as soon as it’s 50% off on Steam. It doesn’t need to meet MY definition of a game. I just thought w...

What "Made" Grand Theft Auto: III

336d ago ... As we verge into Grand Theft Auto: V's rich, sun-soaked plains, the best way to hold any ongoing hype until launch is by reminiscing the past memories of times long gone, and in Rockstar Games' case, the best way in which such an arduous task can be completed is by concisely compacting Rockstar Games' Herculean landscapes into a single article for easy memorial. Prepare to travel from the sordi...

Why indies are going to matter now more than ever

413d ago ... As rumors swirl around and as we get more glimpses into the almost-always-online future of the Xbox One, people are a bit bothered by the possibility that this is simply the way future gaming is going to be. Unfortunately, that's what happens when Microsoft reveals a so-called "console" and almost completely ignores games. It doesn't inspire confidence that gaming is going to be the focus in...

Life of Pixel - A Nostalgia Trip

427d ago ... Life of Pixel is the fantastically nostalgic trip through gaming history by Super Icon Ltd. Released, initially, via Sony's PlayStation Mobile service, the London based developer is now looking to bring the game to more people and more platforms. If you don't know what Life of Pixel is it, it's probably understandable. While it's my personal favourite and likely best game on the PS Mobile...

Why I love Console gaming :)

428d ago ... First of all, I’m a gamer. I don’t play a machine, I play games, all of them, regardless of the platform. Sure I have favourite genres and titles and I don’t play everything (how’s that possible), but the point is, being a gamer is about GAMES, not being a fanboy (fangirl?) of a platform. I have a good gaming PC, I have a PS3, I have an XBOX360, I have a PSVita, I have a 3DS, I have a PSP, I...

Opinion: We Run the Risk of Visual Stagnation

440d ago ... So far, the most we've seen from next generation graphics is primarily from Sony's Playstation 4 reveal event. We've seen the machine supposedly running game engines that look pretty close to CGI visuals that you would sometimes see in an animated movie. Technologically speaking, it's pretty cool. It certainly has many Sony fans excited, with many wondering where that leaves the upcoming new Xb...

Should Console Games Move on to Art, While Mobile Games Take Their Place?

477d ago ... All these touch games - Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Racing Moto - Aren't these technically true video games, at least by definition? Brilliant games such as Final Fantasy VII, Dark Souls,Journey, or Xenoblade Chronicles - What "Gamers" love about gaming in general, well, really aren't games - they're much more. Of course, millions of gamers would kill me for saying what I said in the first sen...

The Results Are In: 'Scientific' winner of E3 2012

763d ago ... I've tallied up all the announcements, trailers and awkward silences to find out who was the 'scientific' winner of E3 this year. So here are the results... For the rules see... http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/chaostar/520029 There's a TL;DR section at the bottom for the lazy people. (In chronological order) MICROSOFT Halo 4 Trailer with gameplay [3] Sales bragging [-1] Splinter C...

Lara Croft Redone | a Tomb Raider Fan's Insight

771d ago ... Even though it feels recent, it's closing in on two years since the announcement of Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics' latest project--a reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. Given the simple, yet appropriate name, 'Tomb Raider,' and with the tantalising and promising slogan, 'A Survivor is Born,' we were told to forget everything we knew about our action heroine, as Tomb Raider was going to be a...

MacGuffin's Curse: Head-Scratching Puzzles, Story Driven Tail Wagging

822d ago ... What do you give an out of work magician whose lady has left him while living in a town that monitors everything people do with camera equipped trees? Most would say a ticket to somewhere else, perhaps even a job on a Cruise Ship. Not so for the ladies and gents over at Brawsome, who decided that the best thing was to curse him with the ability to always know that the wet dog smell is likely...

War of the Immortals First Impressions

909d ago ... Besides bringing us the joy of Torchlight, Perfect World has been making a strong presence for themselves with their F2P MMOs, including their latest, War of the Immortals. What looks to be a spiritual successor to Battle of the Immortals, which is still very active, War expands on the former game with new classes and content. Having never played the former game, only knowing it through some...

It's good to be a Gamer

941d ago ... I love video games no matter the system. Many great games through the years with maybe more letdowns than we like to admit. I remember shopping for Miner 49er for the family Coleco-Vision. My first memory of In Home Video Game Entertainment, was that of PONG and Combat! units(each a nightmare to switch between). If you were to tell me then that these games would be in a museum and looked at...
