At a Glance: Size Five Games

4d ago ... [b]Size Five Games[/b] was rather inventively set up at the very peak of the Global Economic Meltdown by part-time Indie developer and full-time against-the-grain specialist Dan Marshall. It started out life as Zombie Cow Studios, before the crashing realisation that that is a [i]horrible[/i] name, and they changed it for something much less stupid. They make comedy games and have won a BAFTA....

At a Glance: Robin Arnott & SoundSelf

5d ago ... [b]Robin Arnott[/b] is an audio designer and interactive artist best know for "that creepy gas mask game", Deep Sea and "that chanting game," SoundSelf. He loves play. He loves learning. He loves the future, and how you and he will help create it. He wants you to prove that everything he thinks is wrong. He thinks that the way it's always been done is stupid. He thinks the way it's always been...

10d ago ... [b]From Cat[/b] Do you feel like dying today? Would it be best if you could die over and over again in a dungeon setting?

Daniel Benmergui is an Argentinian developer that appreciates the value of a well-leveled character. You...

IMO, the +10 Defense Card

44d ago ...

That or you can just skip to the end that works too if you want an easy way out. Now how many of you have been in a heated argument over something but had the other person or you yourself be...

Comparison shopping

82d ago ... All these comparisons between said game played on the PS4 and an ultra pc is very telling. It may be concluded that the overall better game graphically comes from the pc but just the mere fact that the comparisons are only being conducted from one console to the pc it can be said that the PS4 capability, not to mention at the consoles infancy, is that much higher that that of the competitors....

Evil Pumpkin: The Lost Halloween

92d ago ... Meet Lemuel Barnabas. He is not a protagonist in our story, but just look at him - he’s scrappy and funny, talks to himself, likes music and long walks behind the bar. In a word - he is quite mad, but as mad as he is, he’s the one you come to for help. Help? What happened? You didn’t hear? Apparently there is this thing called Halloween. I know, I know, it sounds stupid. But there’s candy invol...

The Continued Stupidity Of Social Justice Warriors In Gaming Part 1

100d ago ... It is no secret about my opinion on Social Justice, its Warriors, and their place in the gaming consciousness and culture. I'm not going to go into things I've already stated in previous blogs and comments about that topic, but I am going to first engage in a nuclear facepalm, a sigh, and then discuss why I was forced to do those two things. It all started with this... http://www.polygon....

Starwars Battlefront III: Marketing Jargon or Possible Exclusive?

104d ago ... I was reading through xbox.com this evening when I came across StarWars Battlefront!!! Next to the image it states: Star Wars Battlefront - "A new high definition experience with all the amazing special effects, vehicle physics and gameplay intensity ONLY XBOX ONE can deliver." As Seen Here: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/xbox-one-games?xr=shellnav Now call me stupid, but is...

How the enjoyment of waiting for a game is destroyed

141d ago ... Oddly enough, it isn't the companies that's lower my enjoyment of waiting for a game; it's you people. How do you do it? 1)Endlessly complain about it not being on your console, which is understandable in some cases, but not when the reason has been stated numerous times, like in the case of Bayonetta 2 or Titanfall. 2)This actually connects back to number 1. Since the game is not on your...

Marvel Taking Control is a Good Thing

194d ago ... So, it's been awhile since I have had the time to really buckle down and write up something new for the site, but I have been keeping up with recent developments regarding a couple of subjects that I really want to talk about. One of these subjects particularly is that Marvel was taking down various titles within digital stores at an alarming rate. Steam, PSN, and Xbox Live saw titles like Marv...

Baby’s First Roguelike (N4G Review)

214d ago ... A surprise is what it was. Getting the opportunity to make another official review for an indie title and then suddenly realizing that I can’t recall ever having any involvement with another roguelike before which would allow me to compare and contrast my experience with those titles to Sword of The Stars: The Pit (SOTS) and the Mind Games expansion. Despite the fact that I’ve dove into what...

How Mark Cerny Saved Christmas

216d ago ... Everyone in the world liked Videogaming a lot... But the Mattrick,who worked inside Microsoft, Did NOT! The Mattrick hated Videogaming! The entire accursed hobby! Now, please don't ask why. Else you'd get kicked from MS' Lobby. It could be that the head of the department wasn't feeling all right It could be, perhaps, that the budget was too tight But I think that the most likely reason of...

The Stupidity Of Citing Anonymous Sources

273d ago ... We, as gamers, are always eager for the latest breaking news on new consoles and new games to the point that we will accept and absorb almost any information that comes along. We can sometimes be obsessed with news that we ignore rumour and supposition and claim it as fact and it is this trait of ours that "journalists" and forums feed off of. In case any of you haven't already heard, there...

PC Gaming: Come, Let Us Reason Together (Part One)

274d ago ... A new generation is starting in a few weeks, and more than ever before, I see "opinions" on PC gaming sprouting up that range from laughable to inherently disingenuous. Be it the "exorbitant" start-up costs, general apprehension at having to deal with drivers, dismay at the sheer number of choices and options, you name it, there's always some barrier or excuse used as to why it's bad or stup...

A Final Look at Halo 4

334d ago ... If you’re looking for a physical analogy for the comparative differences between Halo 4 and its predecessors, then you need look no further than the map Ragnarok. A battle-worn version of its big brother Valhalla, Ragnarok’s thinning grass, sterile metallic structures and lack of soul represents a small cog in the rapidly corroding machine that is Halo 4. But has the damage to the series alr...

Spammed

354d ago ... Bad news: Spam has been on a serious uptick around here lately. So the team tweaked some settings and the filter. Good news: Spam is way down. More bad news: Some non-spamming, definitely member types are getting clocked by the spam fighting SiteBot. It's by no means an epidemic, but it's happened so I want to get this message out there to the good, non-spamming folks of N4G. :)...
