The Gaming Community Needs to Grow up

294d ago ... First of all, I'd like to introduce myself to the people who aren't aware of who I am, or give you a little insight into who I am. I am Skittles, aka the man behind these blogs: http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/ltskittles/517905 Here I went in depth on an issue that used to rampant here on N4G, and it drove me crazy, http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/ltskittles/517830 John Stewart vs. Kotaku, a while b...

Pick And Choose Used Or New

598d ago ... The industry is in financial straits right now. The industry took a 22% drop in profits in the year 2012 and publishers keep looking for reasons why their games are making less money. Some like EA, took initiative against piracy. Others like Quantic Dream's David Cage believes that the used game market can potentially hurt profits. Knowing full well between the difference of the new and used...

Extremism With Video Game Graphics

643d ago ... You can probably tell by now that I tend to put graphics underneath a number of factors in games that I like. Some of my favorite titles are not necessarily the best looking of their generation (many of which are not even Nintendo related). Just to name a few, Brutal Legend, Portal/Portal 2, Mighty Switch Force, Crash Bandicoot 1-3, Sonic Adventure/2, Mischief Makers, Battlezone and other su...

"Metacritic is unbiased"-What a joke!!!!

1127d ago ... I thank all N4G users for their support to my last post. Let me tell you that I am a review analyst by profession in a company named Milestone Interactive Ltd. In my last post I provided you all with some perfect review facts, and now I am gonna share some more facts regarding our beloved site Metacritic. I am sure mostly everyone knows the ridiculous metascore conversion of (A) to (100), (A-)...

Get a Handle on Your Expectations

1156d ago ... Another odd numbered year, another game from Naughty Dog studios, renowned for the Crash Bandicoot games and more recently Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which deserves an award for how many awards it won. Thing is, Uncharted 3 won't be that good. Not because it isn't, but because it can't. It's not Naughty Dogs fault mind you. Uncharted 3 will be game of the year caliber. In a year that's...

No love for Gears 3 as GOTY contender?

1166d ago ... Lately, I've been reading quite a few forum posts and comments debating about which game deserves to be Game of the Year(GOTY). All off the big name games see their titles thrown around; Batman: AA, Portal 2, BattleField 3, Modern Warfare 2, Skyrim, Zelda: Skyword Sword, Uncharted 3. While most of these titles haven't been released and haven't proven their quality yet, we constantly forget abou...

Subconscious Gaming

1320d ago ... I have always been fascinated at the concept of virtual reality games, dreams, games in general and how they can all be connected together. Throughout my years spent gaming i have noticed, from time to time, when talking to a friend, or chatting on the phone while playing a game i play even better then i normally do.And when i say talking to a friend, i don't mean just nodding and saying "ye...

Is Portal 2 the funniest game ever?

1338d ago ... I can't remember laughing so much through an entire play through of a game. I really do think Portal 2 rivals the best comedy films out there, with actors J.K. Simmons and Stephen Merchant they have two great comedy actors who never fail to make me laugh. I'd love to talk about my funniest bits but I don't want to spoil the game for people who have not completed the single player yet. Can you t...

Clarification: What the Valve, and Sony partnership mean.

1427d ago ... On June 15, 2010 Gabe Newell announced Portal 2 for the PS3, and said "Portal 2 on the PlayStation 3, would be the best CONSOLE* version."*(Note the word console meaning the best way to play Portal 2 if you have no way to play on PC.) I've seen alot of people take this to make it to use it for the stupid imaginary console war, because they think he said "Portal 2 on the PlayStation 3 will be th...

Stay Classy VGA's

1469d ago ... Alright so I'm not exactly offering up any new opinions when it comes to the Spike Video Game Awards. In fact the VGA's are so terrible so as to surpass personal opinion and become literal fact. And relatively speaking this years VGA's were probably the best. If last year was like getting a root canal, this year was tantamount to being kicked in the teeth. Whenever the show took a break fro...

Featuring games such as Mass Effect 3, Uncharted 3, Portal 2, Elder Scrolls V, Killzone 3, Gears of War 3, Forza 4, Batman Arkham City, Little Big Planet... Must I go on? PS3, xbox360, PC, who wins?

The PS3 will be my most played system

1511d ago ... The holiday and 2011 is already packed with games, and many more unannounced titles will be seeing the light of day next year. But after making a list of games I'm looking forward to I noticed the PS3 completely dominates every other system and category. Here's a list of everything I'm looking forward to. PS3 PlayStation Move Gran Turismo 5 Little Big Planet 2 Killzone 3 Infamous...

The Logic of Left 4 Dead on PS3

1535d ago ... At the Electronics Entertainment Expo in 2010, Valve and Sony announced that the two found a new business relationship. Where originally Valve saw Sony's PS3 difficult to program for, they now praise it for its networking capabilities: an open peer-to-peer network that is free for both developers and consumers alike. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-wQ5Dp1tcg&feature=related) This symb...

"Portal 2 on PS3 will be the best console version of the game" - How exactly?

1627d ago ... To quote big-time Valve honcho Gabe Newell, "We are delighted to announce Portal 2 for the PlayStation 3 and believe the Steamworks support included will make it the best console version of the game." In layman's terms, this means that arriving with Portal 2 on the PS3 will come Steam. Well, perhaps not "with", but you get the drift of his statement. After all, it isn't everyday that Valve hand...

Sony Blows (E3 2010) Load Prematurely

1642d ago ... Forgive the crudeness of the above expression, but there simply isn't any better way to say it, is there? The fact is Sony's E3 conference was good, not great, and everyone seems to agree more or less on that. Some people were less than charitable when it came to appraising Microsoft's Press conference and Nintendo's was almost unanimously lauded as the "best E3 presentation in years" [citat...

The Message Sent By Gabe and Sony's E3 Shocker

1646d ago ... There is an underlining message with what we saw out of what could be the most talked about happenings at this year's E3. I am talking about the appearance of Gabe Newell at Sony's presser to announce that Portal 2 would be headed to the PS3. It was something that shocked all of us, given what Gabe has said in the past about the system, but in truth, should we be surprised? We all knew that, at...
