Why Nintendo Should Put Mario On PS4 and Xbox One?

13d ago ... It might sound crazy when you first think about it, but don’t let that stop you from thinking about it. Because as crazy as it sounds there is some genius to this madness. Ok Forget about the fact that Nintendo would never allow that to happen. This is a blog post there are no rules, we can let the mind go to a place that doesn’t exist - Let’s just pretend for a second that Nintendo had a n...

Nintendoom: Part 4: Changing the Future

93d ago ... And now the wrap up. We have a console in place with solid specs and a great price of $249. We have a handheld with more than acceptable specs and a great price at $149. And with backing from Disney, those specs. could be pushed a bit further without taking too much of a loss or increasing the price for the consumer, and fund more developers which ultimately means more games. So what’s the...

Epic Developer Battles Of History

122d ago ... Pardon the lame title, I just really couldn't come up with anything better to be honest. I'm sure many of you have heard of Epic Rap Battles of History. It's a youtube channel that takes suggestions of two figures, used to be historical figures, fictional or real and has those figures engage in a rap battle. Created by Nice Peter and Epic Lloyd, they've become such characters as Hitler vs. D...

Christmases of Gaming Past

152d ago ... While I was watching my niece and nephew play Minecraft over these past few weeks, I couldn't help but look back at how gaming has changed as I helped them explore and build. The first gaming device my family ever had was an original pong system that was hooked up to a small nine inch black and white television via alligator clips connected to a UHF receiver. To play against each other we w...

2014 is the year of disappointment in gaming...

204d ago ... It started with so much promise... New consoles, new generation, new year. It was all looking up 11 months ago. We were about to see what these new bad boys could do. Just imagining the amazing graphical fidelity and new styles of gameplay was enough to make many of us open our pocketbooks to be a part of 8th generation of gaming. And lets not forget our old consoles were likewise enterin...

Brendan's Blog : Super Smash Sundays

204d ago ... Three weeks ago, I attended Super Smash Sundays at Super Arcade hosted by Team OXY and Level | Up. It was finally my chance to compete with high-skilled players rather than some randoms at a teahouse tournament. So I arrived at Super Arcade, paid my dues, and finally got to playing some friendlies. I was watching some Captain Falcon players, then I thought to myself, "It's only Captain Falco...

A Complete Kingdom Hearts Retrospective

229d ago ... Kingdom hearts is arguably the biggest IP to come out of japan for quite some time, and many regard it higher than square enix's flagship franchise, Final Fantasy. Created by the ever vibrant Tetsuya Nomura and featuring Disney characters and worlds in unison with past Final Fantasy characters, Kingdom Hearts has literally charmed the hearts of gamers since its initial release on the PlayStatio...

Why are you complaining over more games?

235d ago ... The topic of how many Mario and Assassins Creed games is constantly coming up within gaming forums, and every time I see them I shake my head. People seem to constantly pass by the simple solution to having an issue with these franchises. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY THEM. I stopped playing Final Fantasy a LONG time ago, but every time I see a new installment, I watch the trailer, I see if it's...

Gamers Nostalgia - The Special Games

245d ago ... Being a gamer my whole life has given me many moments of happiness and excitement. From the unexpected joy of my parents buying me an Atari in the very early 90's to getting my first NES for Christmas and being amazed by Mario games! Eventually, After the snes and megadrive aged, the Nintendo 64 came along, Mario 64…. Wave racer… Mario kart, it was awesome. Then throughout my life, defining my...

N4G & The Internet vs 90's Gaming & Magazines

260d ago ... I was born in 1989. I suppose that makes me quite old! However, growing up in the 90's was awesome! We had the feeling of that first time epic joy from all forms of entertainment. Movies had charm and character, music was great if you ignored that evil pop music, and generally everything for kids felt better than it is today! Gaming especially felt fresh, getting a NES or SNES or even a sega...

Gaming Culture Suffers From Institutionalized Amnesia

262d ago ... First Scenario: The year is 198X, you're a young boy or girl who's come to know video games and love what you've experienced. You have friends that have a Nintendo Entertainment System just like you and every day after school, and on the weekends, you try to convince your parents to let you play some video games, or to go over to your friends house so you can play them there. You finished your...

Rage of the Tomb Raider and Why You Should Care.

281d ago ... I don't like exclusives. I don't mean the games themselves but the fact that they are limited to one system. Exclusives are made, and thought up primarily to sell the system they're made for. The direct implication of the console manufacturer into the development process is often a positive thing as the game is better optimized and takes full advantage of the hardware at it's disposal. Also som...

Turtle Beach's Beautiful Game Search is Turning Out to Be a Joke.

318d ago ... Turtle Beach recently started a "campaign" to crown the best game of all time. They've narrowed it down to the top 15 games that people have been pushing for. Here is that list: Borderlands 2 Call of Duty: Ghosts Dwarf Fortress Far Cry 3 FIFA 14 Final Fantasy X Grand Theft Auto V Halo 3 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Pac Man Resident Evil Super Mario Galaxy The Elder Scrolls V:...

A Gamer/Game Dev's Opinion of the Game Industry in 2014

326d ago ... [b]By Chris Chung, [i]Catlateral Damage[/i][/b] I’ve been a gamer for the majority of my life. I grew up with Super Mario World, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Pokémon Blue and have been playing games ever since. I’ve been immersed in gaming culture for the past 15 years, have been working in the industry for the last 2 years, and I’m now beginning my career as an indie game developer creating my...

Do Better Graphics Make a Better Game? (Round 1! Sonic 3 & Knuckles vs. Sonic Adventure)

339d ago ... Let me get this out of the way right now: I am pro Sonic. Ever since I was old enough to play games I always though Sonic was so much better than Mario. In fact, the only reason I owned a SNES was to play Final Fantasy VI, otherwise it was Sega all the way. I have played nearly all the games (up until the Wii exclusives, but I did play Generations) so I hope that gives me the right to lay out t...

More Wii U words

356d ago ... So, there are lots of things wrong with the Wii U. Marketing has been confusing, the games have come slowly, third party support is gone, the asking price is too high and the tech is too old. Nintendo doesn't have a problem that people need to insightfully boil things down to; they have a large, unlabeled umbrella full of issues collected like so many undesirable Pokemon. That's the lens the...

Polygon's Nintendo Nightmare

356d ago ... Let me start off by saying that Mr. Kuchera's views are probably not representative of the entirety of Polygon. I always find that gamers tend to associate one person's review or statement with the entirity of the site/company, and this isn't usually the case. That said, I find his statements to be an additional footnote to the laughable incompetency that Polygon trails. The article in quest...

Kingdom Hearts: Beginning, Impact, and Future

362d ago ... We have finally arrived to this point. It is time to look at Kingdom Hearts with its progress over the years. Welcome back to Beginning, Impact, and Future. As many of you have probably seen, I have been covering Kingdom Hearts III with my own speculation on what could possibly be awesome for the final entry to have. If you haven't seen them, please check them out from my blog section. For now,...

Mario Kart 8 Officially Justifies the Wii U's Graphical Prowess

380d ago ... Say what you want about the Wii U. Whine and complain as much as you'd like about how the system isn't at the same 'power-level' as the PS4 or XBOX One. One thing is for sure, though: Mario Kart 8 is one damn-fine looking game. It's been a little less than a year from since the public got a chance to first see the title in action. It's been a little over a year from since Nintendo showed...

What's Happening to Nintendo?

388d ago ... I love Nintendo. I may not be as tight with them as I am with Sony, but Ninty and I go way back. Heck, Super Mario World for the SNES was the first videogame I ever encountered, at the age of four, so it's possible I never would have taken up gaming as a past time, if it wasn't for good old Ninty. But, many of their decisions lately, have been questionable, at best. It's no secret that th...
