How the enjoyment of waiting for a game is destroyed

37d 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

90d 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)

110d 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

112d 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...

Latest trends in mobile gaming – An insight

130d ago ... New trends are ruling the transforming mobile gaming market. Thanks to the everlasting bond between social media, mobile and gaming, you can also find user generated content everywhere. These days most of the mobile games are featuring content offered by their users. Do you think the players only play the games? Well, no. They also strive towards building their own experience. This rising t...

The Stupidity Of Citing Anonymous Sources

169d 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)

170d 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

230d 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...

Microsoft's Summer School: How NOT to Introduce Your New Console

244d ago ... ...Well, it's that time of year again. The end of the grandest time of year for all young human beings - The Great Summer Vacation. During this time of fun, sun, and late-nights ~ Microsoft has decided to use most of this time to educate us. So what was there summer-school course? "How NOT to Announce Your New Console!" So, if you were naughty and didn't sit in on any of the classes - I'l...

Spammed

250d 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. :)...

This Mario Fan Says, "Check Out Sonic Lost World!"

251d ago ... So as part of a rather large three-game announcement for Wii U, Sega unveiled the new big 3D Sonic platformer titled Sonic Lost World. To the dismay of many an Xbox/PS3 Sega fan, the game is, like Bayonetta's sequel before it, exclusive to the Wii U. Coupled with Nintendo designers aiding in the development of the game, it is rapidly shaping up to be a rather fine tuned and otherwise far improv...

Stop The Pretense.

261d ago ... Alright, it's time to get some things clear. Everyone in the world has preferences. Everyone. No one's preference is wrong because a preference is something that is reached by personal experiences and is entirely unique to every individual. No individual's preference is stupid or wrong (unless it's illegal or immoral) because it literally can't be. If you like the colour red more than the colou...

See, this is what I mean when it comes to the whole competition statement

276d ago ... Earlier I wrote a blog, to outline why Microsoft is not good for the industry and why the statement 'Competition is good for the industry' wasn't completely true. I got quite a lot of backlash, but guys, it was a trap blog. This is exactly what I mean. Microsoft's whole DRM debacle put these stupid console wars at an all time high. Even after they took out the DRM, these fanboy wars are stil...

The "Sexism Debate" Would be Accepted if...

278d ago ... Sexism has become a very tricky issue in the gaming world. Not just as an issue itself, but also as a debate of whether gamers are ignoring it entirely. Many gamers do pawn it off quickly, but perhaps not entirely by their own fault, considering the way that the debate is so often poorly framed. With proper frame and a focused debate, the issue could be accepted and discussed fluidly - as lo...

Not Sure If Trolling But... WTF?!!

284d ago ... See, this is why Microsoft is bad for the industry. Their stupid moves dreamed up by non-gamers create the biggest, most intellectually deficient fanboys I've ever come across in my life. Don't know what I'm talking about? Well just go to these two links and proceed to weep for humanity. http://www.change.org/petitions/xbox-one-give-us-back-the-original-xbox-one http://www.change.org/peti...

Delusion, Delusion Everywhere

287d ago ... It's funny how history can find a way to repeat and still put a twist on things. The newest consoles aren't even out, and yet delusions and misinformation and FUD abound from fanboys and media alike. Ridiculous features are being promoted, people are ignoring straight answers when they are given and asking for clarification, and the age old arguments resume. I've already seen this gen's tech pr...

My/Your Favorite Is Number One, But Not The Only One

295d ago ... Given the end of E3, it's become pretty easy to see that Sony is rapidly increasing their already large chances of being in the number one spot as far sales for the next generation. They have managed to set record pre-order numbers and absolutely decimate the Xbox One in consumer voted polls on Amazon. Many a Sony fan are excited, some to the point of gloating and in some ways rightfully so....

I'm done being polite, this is no longer just a silly 'console war'.

311d ago ... I'd like to start of by saying I struggled finding an image for this blog so instead I used an image from the Mega Drive/Genesis title Alien Storm. In the picture we see gamers as the dude electrocuting the dubious ideas of game developers, in the face. Anyhow... The term console war is stupid. The fact is the people involved in them are even more stupid. They are inanimate objects. They...

Dedicated scores the E3 conferences (Day One)!

313d ago ... Hey, readers, let's dive in to my biased and completely unfair scores for today's major E3 announcements. In the spirit of good sportsmanship, the final score for each conference will be solely based on the conference itself. So, no, I'm not going to mark down Sony for that idiotic free-to-play Destiny of Spirits game, nor am I going to mark down Microsoft for boring me with yet another Kinect...
