The Virtues Of Assassin's Creed 3

16d ago ... There are times in my life where I have kind of a "gaming rut;" an extended period of time where there is either nothing new or current that interests me, or I simply do not have the finances to purchase what does. In these moments I take to going back and playing older games. Sometimes I age myself and go way back to play NES to PS1 games; still other times I don't go so far and I will play PS...

One plus 3 equals 4

20d ago ... The XboX One isn't exactly burning up the charts like the 360 did last gen and the PS4 is looking very tough to beat in terms of sales. With superior graphics, more overall bang for your buck, and an earlier release date the PS4 has put The XboX one behind in numbers with the appearance of little chance of the XboX One catching up. The one advantage that the XboX can have over the PS4 is...

Why Hironobu Sakaguchi making JRPG for Mobile, not home console.

22d ago ... Hironobu Sakaguchi, Why Mobile ? HS: [in English] Ah, Kutaragi-san's architecture...seven DSPs and a low-powered CPU. I don't like the PS3's architecture. [in Japanese] First off, with Sony, programmers want to do well and want to create good software, but Kutaragi-san makes the final call and [designs] the [hardware and software] environment himself. So that's been really challenging....

Why I'm Disappointed with the PS Vita

22d ago ... The PS Vita is an awesome device capable of playing console-like graphics on the go with a decent battery to boot. 2 years ago, I yearned for it and thought that if ever I bought it I'd be playing more of it than my PC and PS3. When I did not have it, I was busy playing with games such as Elder Scrolls V, Assassin's Creed 3, Singularity, Deus Ex HR, ME 3, The Witcher 2, and etc. And then came a...

E3 Is Almost Here

44d ago ... E3 is right around the corner and here I am stuck once again in my cycle of life. Earn money, take care of kid, and hang out with the family. But I almost forget. I have to spend some time with the Playstation 4, but that will be difficult considering there are no compelling games to play. Oh well back to collecting dust I suppose. In all seriousness my Playstation 3 and Wii U have been gett...

Polygon's Nintendo Nightmare

49d ago ... Let me start off by saying that Mr. Kuchera's views are probably not representative of the entirety of Polygon. I always find that gamers tend to associate one person's review or statement with the entirity of the site/company, and this isn't usually the case. That said, I find his statements to be an additional footnote to the laughable incompetency that Polygon trails. The article in quest...

Doom: Does it Hold Up?

57d ago ... In continuing my series on nostalgia and retro gaming, I've decided to create a line of articles entitled "Does It Hold Up?" Perhaps the best way to examine whether nostalgia is blind, or if there is sufficient reasoning behind it, is to examine specific games from my past, that I have gone back and played again, for the first time in years. Today, I will be talking about Doom, which I've b...

Top Five Microsoft PR Blunders

67d ago ... If there's one company who has the worst PR team I've ever seen, it's Microsoft. I'm sorry, but it's almost entertaining to listen to some of the things they, as a company, have said. Sure, they've fixed some of the their mistakes, but that doesn't mean they never happened, or weren't entertaining. So, I decided to count down their top five blunders in the past year or so, according to my hu...

E3 2014 Predictions

73d ago ... We are only a month away from one of the biggest days for video games in the entire year. The Electronics Entertainment Expo (or E3 as most people call it) comes around every summer, and gives gamers across the world hope for their respective systems. For some (myself included), E3 is a decision maker on which console to spend your hard-earned money on. I personally own a Wii U already, but I'm...

Rant: Why Gamers Are Killing Progress

76d ago ... I'm not even going to try to come up with some kind of fitting opening sentence for this. I am going to write a disclaimer though. Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this blog are OPINIONS! They are NOT demands on anyone, and whatever you want to spend your own money on is completely up to you, so don't try to come in here and tell me that I'm telling you how to spend your money because I...

What's in a name?: How a platform's name projects product vision.

87d ago ... Good morning/afternoon/evening N4G, What attracts us to gaming platforms? More of the same or stark contrasts to what we knew and loved/hated? We tend to be a little heavy-handed in a console's assessment after buying it and somehow we seem surprised at what the product offers. Common ones this generation are "PS4 is just a more powerful PS3" and "XBOX One is just an XBOX with a better camer...

The popularity of the AAA FPS has more to do with the AAA, and less to do with the FPS

94d ago ... Everyone seems to think that FPS and action games are the only genres that can be successful in the AAA space. But, why is that? Why, suddenly, are there only two genres capable of success, when we used to have a good variety of genres? Some will argue that "AAA" hasn't existed until the PS3/360 gen. I argue that "AAA" has always existed, and is simply defined by a developer pushing the t...

The Real Reason Behind Making The Last Of Us Remastered

101d ago ... It may seem crazy that we are now getting a remake from a company like Naughty Dog. Especially when there was article after article about how Naughty Dog is not interested in doing a re-release of their game with updated graphics. Makes sense right, why work on a port of an old game that has already done it’s numbers, anything now is just going to be so small it may not be worth even doing it....

Stop Supporting Blatant Cash Grabs

101d ago ... I'm just going to come right out and say this at the very beginning, The Last of Us Remastered is a clear cash grab and poor attempt at bolstering PS4 releases in the wake of the fact that true PS4 releases are slow going because Sony didn't skimp on support for the PS3 just to bring games to the PS4. The Last of Us Remastered is just as bad as Tomb Raider: Fraud.. I mean Definitive Edition....

The Adventures of Rocksteady and Wii U

117d ago ... I read the recent news article about why Rocksteady took the decision not to port to the Wii U. I already knew they weren't gonna release their game on the Wii u as well as the PS3, X360, and smart phones. But in this specific article the commenters reaction towards Rocksteady was highly negative specifically for the Wii u decision. On the other side of the coin, commenters were also highly neg...

Why Downsizing Makes Sense for Sony

120d ago ... Last gen (7th), the ps3 started off poorly to say the least. With waning developer support and consumer interest, Sony had to work really hard to court consumers. Also, with an expensive console and Nintendo ruling the casual and family markets, it meant that games aimed at that audience were no longer feasible. Against that backdrop, Sony began expanding its first party offerings in the di...

Why DLC sucks

123d ago ... Now I know the title of this is going to immediately ruffle some feathers. I am also aware that most of those feathers will be of NEW gamers. When I say new I mean any gamer who started his/her career with the PS3 and Xbox 360. You see Downloadable Content didn’t rear its ugly head regularly until the aforementioned gaming machine made their debuts. Downloadable Content (DLC) was in theory an e...

The "other thing" the PS4 doesn't do.

135d ago ... The Playstation 4 has been out for a few months now and I don't care. I'm content with my PS3. Let me clarify though, I don't care NOW. I'm sure I'll care a little when inFamous comes out and a little more when Batman is released. I'll care when Final Fantasy XV shows up and I'll really care, if and when, The Last Guardian gets made. And really, this is what has happened since the dawn of gamin...

What Xbox One Price Cut?

144d ago ... For the past week, I've been hearing a lot about a price cut on the Xbox One. I keep hearing about how it's the fastest price cut in console history, and how it can mean only one thing - desperation. http://n4g.com/news/1463596/microsoft-says-xbox-one-price-cuts-are-not-out-of-desperation So, I decided to do some research on the matter: I checked Gamestop's website. Still listed at $...
