Would you play Browser Games?

10d ago ... In recent years, with the development of web technology, type of game has been varied again. There are quite a lot of browser games online, such as Shifu, Nightfalls, Dragon Atlas and Dawn of King. Instead of having to download the application or client of game, we merely need to open a web browser and install a plug-in maybe and then we can start playing straight away. Indeed, compared to m...

Do You Even Third-Party Exclusive, Bro?

10d ago ... So with some of the recent rumblings about third party exclusivity and such, I thought it would be a good idea to raise the general morale (and maybe upset the fanboys in the process...not that I'm doing that intentionally). Right, so, with the recent announcement of Street Fighter V as a PlayStation 4 console exclusive, gamers are more or less losing their minds in both good ways and bad. O...

Console exclusivity and gamer hypocrisy

13d ago ... The big news to hit the Internet recently, is that Capcom's newly announced Street Fighter V will be exclusive to the PS4 and Windows PC. The mere mention of yet another high profile 3rd party IP getting the console exclusivity treatment has caused outrage amongst gamers. More specifically the Xbox crowd, who are outraged that a game from such a popular, previously multiplat franchise will b...

Ubisoft And Embargoes

18d ago ... Had a different, and totally reactionary blog I was going to post but changed my mind and couldn't delete it, so I'm changing it. I'm sure you've all heard of what Ubisoft is doing with The Crew and not allowing any reviews until launch. It follows what they've been doing with their games for awhile now and is completely wrong. I'm a fan of the Assassin's Creed series, always have been an...

Digital future will be bad for console gamers

42d ago ... Australian PSN and Xbox Live users get the jitters when some point to the inevitability of digital downloads. Let's take the PSN store for example, for a quick comparison of some new and upcoming releases: PSN: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - $99.95 Lords of the Fallen - $89.95 PES 2015 - $84.95 GTAV - $99.95 Now here's the comparable prices for disc editions from major retailers: C...

N4G Preview: Elegy for a Dead World

49d ago ... It has fallen into my lap like a gift from the writing gods. Just in time for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), Elegy for a Dead World from Dejobaan Games and Popcanibal will actually propel you into a world that you never knew existed, and you help create it. With words. Is it a game? Is it a writing simulator? It is probably both, and more. It would most likely depend on one’s basic a...

PS4 1 Year Later This is for the Players, Are you not entertained?

53d ago ... “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears” By William Shakespeare No Seriously are you not entertained, are you enjoying your PS4? Because the PS4 has been like a bat out of hell since it’s launch, I mean nothing can get in it’s way, not even the XboxOne, and that’s it’s only real competition. (unless of course you want to say PC’s but let’s just talk consoles for now) So has it li...

Are We Gamers Becoming Harder To Please Nowadays?

56d ago ... I ask this question, because to me, I notice that nearly every new release on the consoles and PC so far, there has been so much hate surrounding each game. Is it because we are expecting too much? Is it the developers releasing games too early, with problems at release (example: Battlefield 4, Driveclub, Destiny). Is it because we get sucked in to the hype train so much that when the actual...

Will we ever see the end of "Definitive Editions" games?

71d ago ... So it seems like this generation "Definitive Editions" of games are going to be the next big thing. What is a "Definitive Edition" of a game? Judging from what has been released so far you can conclude that the so called definitive edition is one that includes the following: 1)A release on any of the modern generation of hardware including: Ps4, Xbox One, PC, or WiiU 2)Higher resolution,...

My Personal Top 15 Games of The Seventh Generation of Consoles

73d ago ... Note that this list is my personal opinion and only games that I played (and finished) are listed. Please be constructive and unbiased and feel free to state your opinion and list your own personal favorites. As a side note since I never owned a Wii during the 7th gen only PS3 and 360 games are listed. Also PC games are excluded as I don't play much on PC. Additionally PCs' don't really...

Does Pixel Count Really Matter?

73d ago ... Smell that? Yep, it's that magical time of year for games to come out. A show of the games having the latest tech, the evolution of gameplay, and of course the endless bickering between people over trivial things. Tis the season I suppose, but a rather interesting piece has come out over the latest iteration of the Assassin's Creed series, Assassin's Creed Unity, coming only to current-gen and...

The Crew's Beta Debacle

74d ago ... Last summer, we witnessed the announcement of The Crew, an upcoming racing game spanning across the United States, in an open and persistent world. It was widely advertised as what an open world racing game should be, taking an indiscriminate jab at the Forza Horizon series. Let me just say that for the record, they ought to have kept their mouths shut. Since its announcement, I was looking...

Titan One Review- "Mods without Soldering"

83d ago ... The Titan One is available online for approximately $60 USD. A device was provided for review purposes. More information can be found at www.consoletuner.com. A digital modding device for console controllers that both makes me giggle with glee and shiver at its application for online gaming, the Titan One is a curious device. The Titan One really shows its colors by working as intended as...

Under the Knife: Swatting, a Deplorable Crime

85d ago ... A lingering trend has come to my attention recently. Apparently, this trend has gained traction since 2013 and has grown into something new. The trend I'm referring to (and which is titled above) is called "Swatting". What is Swatting? Swatting is the false reporting of a violent or ongoing crime at a designated location or by a victim whose sole purpose is to get a huge emergency response (pre...

Fanboys Be Like...

86d ago ... Since this generation has gotten underway, the crazies have been overly vocal, supporting or defending their platforms of choice. Nothing wrong with that, except in the past, it was a very different scenario for their company of choice. So I've come up with a list (in no particular ranked order) of some of the silly things I've heard this generation so far. 1. "Microsoft's Cloud will show th...

PC Gaming: It is more about OPTIONS than graphics.

94d ago ... I see it time and time again on this site and I do not know why it drives people to spread utter misinformation and bull about another platform. I see the same comment made over and over, "you need a 1K PC to run games that look good".......NOT even close! You can find many affordable builds that will get you in to PC gaming for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embe...

My top 10 Games in a franchise last gen.

110d ago ... Choosing a top 10 on such a topic was really hard because some of those franchises had a sequel or a prequel that is just as good . So let begin with ... 10-Mass Effect (Ps3,360,Pc) While alot of people will say Mass effect 2 was the best in the series , for me this was the best , the level mechanics , getting exp from enemies rather than finishing a part then get a bunch of exp , it just w...

The Master Race - Who Really Wins

110d ago ... My first blog on N4G will be my way of breaking down this on going argument between console gamers, otherwise referred to as peasants, and the PC gamers, the self proclaimed master race. Its worth noting however, that both of these terms are created by PC gamers themselves, if only by the minority, as PC has such a great community in all genres I wouldn't dare tarnish just how great it is. Also...

My top 10 hidden gems last gen

115d ago ... The Last gen had alot of amazing games but unfortunately alot of these games went under the rubble or played by a small amount of gamers which is a shame because alot of those games were actually better than alot of AAA games . 10-Deadly Premonition (Ps3,360,pc) This game was really bad in almost everything , you will hate everything about it and regret ever buying it , until you get deep e...
