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

73d 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:...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes & "The Fighting Game Dilemma"

138d ago ... By now, many of us who frequent gaming news sites are aware of the wildly varied reviews of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. According to MetaCritic, scores are as low as 50%, yet as high as 100%. Though 50% is as low as MC has recorded, I have observed scores as low as 1/5 (20%) from less-known [and perhaps less reputable] sources that *could* simply be looking for hits. In my opinion, the g...

I Am Disappoint: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

143d ago ... Hi, Hello! I'd like to discuss with you a bit of disappointment I've had with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Now before I have you dive into a sea of text, I need to toss out a disclaimer: I've never played Revengeance, and I'm so terribly apathetic towards it that the demo is the last thing I ever touched. So what disappointment could I be talking about? Well, just like last time with Grou...

The $30 Demo Debacle.

157d ago ... So here we are guys, I've had 5 days to play Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes and I wanted to make this blog to just talk about it, the controversy that followed it and what we gamers should do. So When talking about Ground Zeroes we got to start with the sore point of it all which is, Ground Zeroes main story can be finished between an hour to 2 hours and it costs $30 to own physically....

I Am Disappoint: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

158d ago ... Hi, hello! I'd like to discuss with you a bit of disappointment I've had with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. If you're a frequent visitor of N4G, and/or a Metal Gear Solid fan - oh hell, the fact you're reading this at all - means you're aware of the Ground Zeroes "Debacle", as some have put it. Ground Zeroes is a stand-alone prologue to the much bigger "Phantom Pain". Just about every r...

The Ground Zeroes Price Debacle - Is It Worth It?

159d ago ... This is where I take my positivity hat off for a second and talk about something I strongly feel gamers should not be supporting. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is the Tanker Mission-esque prologue to the upcoming Phantom Pain. A decent stealth action game that lasts for what many estimate as an hour of story related gameplay, with some side missions that basically serve as padding. If you w...

Is Innovation in gaming dead?

173d ago ... There was a period in gaming history when developers consistently sought out new and fresh approaches to making games. Some games were so great it changed the face of gaming. Games such as: Metal Gear Solid, Grand Theft Auto 3, Gears of war, and 2K5 football not only pushed the boundaries of their perspective genres, but also became measuring sticks of sorts. When a new fresh game hits the scen...

A Top 13 For 2013

200d ago ... The gaming chapter of 2013’s officially one for the history books and with that final note comes the unflinching tradition of the pomp and splendor of the awards that follow. Always one to break with tradition, I take the time to display my very won list, crafted by yours truly appropriate to the year of its debut. Thirteen games for the year of 2013 is the only list I could make in good fai...

Ground Zeroes: Worth it?

230d ago ... There's been a crap-ton of people that all of the sudden want nothing to do with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. I'm here simply to clear the air. The game isn't 2 hours; only the main mission is 2 hours. There are side missions that probably bring that total to 3 maybe 4 hours. Also, Metal Gear games tend to have VERY high replayability. So you're probably going to get like 10 hours out...

Will Metal Gear Online cross into the Phantom Pain's story?

233d ago ... I don't know if this is news to anyone, but I can't help but ponder this question, especially after coming across rather convincing evidence after a recent re-viewing of the red-band trailer for Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain. A long while ago, when the first real trailer for Phantom Pain released, many people noted that there was a third, unseen character in the opening scene. As doctors...

Bromance

233d ago ... February is upon us and what better way to honor the month of romance by doing a blog about the best videogame love stories. Unfortunately, before you snuggle up with your girlfriend in front of the fire to read my Valentine’s Day blog (on whatever smart device you two will be sharing), I’m going to have to get my testosterone levels up...now it was either this or eating tons of red meat and I...

Controversy on Mature Rated Games and Its Stupidity

251d ago ... Every single time I read about something in a game that made people angry, I get angry. Let it be torture scene from the critically acclaimed and controversial Grand Theft Auto V, the sexual violence report on the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes, or the most recent report about killing a family as Dracula for blood to show how monstrous he has become. I have seen feminists, pacifists,...

I am announcing that I am writing a blog post

251d ago ... I wanted to take a moment to announce that I am going to write a blog post right now. The blog post just started. I thought you should know. Silly, right? But don't worry, I haven't completely lost it. Rather, I'm just practicing to be a videogame journalist. What, you hadn't noticed? Bioware Austin just announced they're working on an unannounced game. There's a rumor that Nintendo's R&D...

Game Ideas: Metroid Other M 2

317d ago ... Okay, so remember when I said that I thought that Nintendo’s saving grace for the Wii U (for lack of a better term) was a return to turning heads with odd choices that would turn into great decisions? Remember the “decision” that I thought it might be? A direct sequel to Metroid: Other M, MOM 2 could be that game because it would, one, turn the heads of people wondering what in the crap Nintend...

My declining interest in MGS V

384d ago ... As a long time Metal Gear fan I was always looking forward to the next chapter in the sage, but things are changing. I still remember playing the first two Metal Gear games a long, long time ago. Fighting the first Metal Gear built by Big Boss was an exhilarating fight at it`s time. Playing MGS on the PS1 brought the same feeling, sneaking around guards evading their sight, fighting Psycho M...

The Unpopular Opinion: Twin Snakes Was Good

422d ago ... Metal Gear Solid is one of those Nintendo-esque retro greats that have stood the test of time and continued to find success through the decades. The series is now entering its 5th chapter, or rather the fourth (marking the fourth game after Snake Eater, canonically the first game in the timeline). The MSX games were misguidedly ported to the NES and the very first Playstation "Solid" game was r...

Let's talk about hype

432d ago ... Hype, is somewhat of a double-edged sword, on the one hand it's an incredibly important marketing tool that allows company's to make potential customers aware, that a certain product they may be interested in will be becoming available in a disclosed or undisclosed amount of time, and more importantly it gets those potential customers excited about that product. We see hype in many forms,...
