My Personal Top 15 Games of The Seventh Generation of Consoles

16d 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?

16d 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

18d 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"

27d 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

28d 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...

30d 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.

38d 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.

53d 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

54d 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

58d 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...

Game of the Year

60d ago ... In terms of Game of the Year, the last generation started off pretty predictably. The large AAA games were the ones to take the centre stage. Games like Mass Effect, Bioshock, Oblivion and GTA 4 were the names thrown around in most of the conversations and most of those conversations were centered on a handful of games. However, as things progressed, we began to see smaller titles like Braid an...

My Top 10 JRPGs

61d ago ... Probably my favorite gaming genre is JRPG, which probably has one of the hardest games, one of the most in-depth, best soundtracks and of course visually great (During their golden era atleast). Genre is very different from western type of RPG games such as Witcher, Fallout and Dungeon Siege Series. With the rise of Online gaming, we have morphed into MMORPG genre quite much, with this i thi...

The Endless Debate

63d ago ... Every time a small piece of information regarding technical specifications of a future multi platform title surfaces, fan boys spring out of the wood work for a chance to analyse this new data and find new ways to bash, rage, praise, hate, love their platform of choice and or its direct competitor depending on the sentiment. Let's take a look at the biggest highs and lows of each platform an...

3 Platform Future: Sony + Conlusion

65d ago ... Sony has made all the right moves with the PlayStation 4 thus far, and the PlayStation brand is the strongest of the big 3 when considering all time console sales. There’s little for me to comment on regarding Sony’s future in the gaming industry. Their $380 million dollar purchase of Gaikai, and upcoming features such as SharePlay on PS4 shows their future in the gaming industry is in the...

EA Access: A Perfect Move

84d ago ... This. Is. Brilliant. Completely and utterly B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T. So in a move similar to Games For Gold for Xbox systems or PS Plus for Playstation platforms, or more accurately Playstaion Now, Electronic Arts have announced EA Access: a service which will not only allow paid subscribers to play a number of older EA licensed games, but promises to give early access to upcoming triple-A product...
