So much, and so little...

31d ago ... I have begun to notice that I have a rapidly expanding problem, and I really don't know what to do about it. I have too many games. I collect games from various platforms, not just current generation and last generation titles. I have games from the Atari 2600, NES, SNES, Genesis, TurboGrafx 16, Neo Geo, Sega Master System, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, N64, Gamecube, PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4, Xbox,...

E3 Thoughts

46d ago ... So another E3 has come and gone, and naturally there's a lot to talk about. E3 has come a long way in the past few years. A few years ago we'd be arguing which company had the least cringe-worthy moments or technical hiccups. Now we actually argue on who had the better conference. Anyway, here's what I thought of each company's performance. ============================= Microsoft: Phil Sp...

Joe Montana Football looms

49d ago ... *UPDATE* Joe Montana Football will be shown part of the Unreal 4 presser. Also you can sign up for early access on www.Joemontana.com Let's get this out of the way now. I'm a fanboy. A NFL 2k5 fanboy. I still play it to this day with updated rosters found with simple google searches. You copy that save file and paste it to your 360, PS3, XboxOG, and PS2 to keep it going. Now, I'm n...

PS3 "A Better Value Than Wii U"?

53d ago ... Today I was shopping around at a local Walmart, when it dawned on me! The Wii U cost $300, while the PS3 was $150, then I started to really think about that...Then it hit me! The PS3 actually offers a better value then the "next gen" Nintendo Wii U. I must be crazy.. Right? When I went to the game aisle, I could not believe what I saw, a scarce Wii U game library with a lot of the same game...

Considering switching to XBX1

78d ago ... I am a loyal PS supporter. I have been gaming since 89. Not to go over my whole story, I will start from PS1 gen and later. From PS1 gen, I only had PS consoles AND a Dreamcast. Even last gen when media was trashing PS3; I wanted that console. I Didn't care about Nintendo or MS. However I have to say Sony first party is not to my liking anymore; for now at least. I was a huge fan of GOD OF W...

Exclusive games and how we should view them

125d ago ... The term exclusive has changed somewhat in the industry. It used to mean if you could only get that game on one particular platform it meant exclusive. While this is true the lines have been blurred over the years for various reasons. I recall Aaron Greenberg from Microsoft used to use the term exclusive even if the game was coming to the PC. In fact titles like Bioshock had 'only on Xbox and W...

Buying a Work in Progress

139d ago ... Once upon a time, when you bought a console or game, you knew what you had in your hands. You had a finished product. A definite and contained experience for all time to come….or until the cartridge disintegrated. Things have certainly changed since then. The PS3 I bought at launch is a far cry from the one I have on my table next to me. Even my games change over time, especially the online com...

Nintendoom: Part 1: Re-shaping the console

159d ago ... It's a new year, and time for a new blog, so let’s get right into it. Nintendoom. “Is this the end of Nintendo”, “Is this the end of Handhelds”, we've heard all this before, but looking at the state of the Wii U, and it's understandable why this topic comes up. The Wii U is currently performing worse than the GameCube which is considered a failure sales-wise amongst the gaming community, esp...

Sony need to pull their fingers out and provide a native Media Server ASAP

182d ago ... I was a technological neophyte having just built my first computer so I could play Starcraft 2 at above 5 frames a second. I'd not long since moved into my friends house, who it so happened was an avid Playstation gamer(Dare I say Fan-boy?! But that's a discussion for another time and braver souls than I!). He had let me create an account on his Playstation 3,to play Demon's Souls and suchlike...

The Eighth Console Generation is Weird

186d ago ... So here we are, a little over a year into all of the eighth console generation platforms being available to the public. Though each of the platforms show promise and the games look to be getting better and better, there are some things about this console generation that seem, well, off. Here's a short list of why I think this generation is a bit wacky compared to last. 1. None of the console...

Why So Successful? - How Sony and the Playstation Platform Have Evolved

187d ago ... Last generation, I was able to purchase every major console and handheld, basically fulfilling a childhood dream – to own them all. It was an awesome dream to fulfill as a gamer. The sad part was that most of them became paperweights or dust collectors. As you get older, the time just isn’t there anymore….so enjoy and appreciate that free time while it lasts. I predominantly played Xbox and PS...

The Here and Playstation Now

191d ago ... If including everything available for both the Playstation 2 and 3 at launch, they’d be considered some of the consoles with the most robust libraries during their respective releases. This consideration isn’t due to an explosion of newly-released titles but rather in their focus on providing 100% backwards compatibility at the time. This was a consistent feature for Sony until PS2 compatibil...

Until Dawn | My Prayers Have Been Answered

209d ago ... Growing up, I always had an insatiable fascination with experiencing a horror movie in an interactive fashion. Whether that be being cast as an actor in a horror film or experiencing a true horror story in video game form. I don't mean supernatural or undead like The Evil Within or The Walking Dead; I mean a gritty, serial killer-esque thematic on par with the Halloween franchise. As a younger...

My top 11 PS2 games.

211d ago ... Playstation 2 is one of those consoles that was just a juggernaut of its own even though the Gamecube and the original Xbox had slightly better graphics however nothing rivaled it in terms of sheer amount of games and variety it had and it came with a built in DVD player so that was cool for the time. With the great amount of time I had with it I wanted to show my top 11 for my favorite console...

What is up with number 3?

212d ago ... Sequels are really hard to make because the developers works harder to make a better game while retaining the charm of the first game but sometimes when a sequel becomes really good and way better than the first. Developers think about making a third one which either fails to impress because of the high bar the second game sets or never gets released and on rare occasions it becomes the best...

RANT: PS4/Xbone Fight Fans are Getting Screwed

232d ago ... Warning:First Thing's First, English is not my first language so don't expect amazing grammar and spelling here. Yes, as the tittle says, PS4,Xbox one Fight Game Fans are getting Screwed and bad! I love Fighting games but anyone that is serious serious about them know that using a Fighstick is the main way of playing them but there are a couple of problems with this on these PS4/Xbox one...

PS4 doomed to have only few games? (1 year on)

235d ago ... [Update: This post had a mistake which said PS4 had about 40 disk based games after 1 year, but it had 77. It also said PS2 had about 75 disk based games but it had more than 136] 1 year ago I posted this article: http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/ranma1/524461 I feel so far its proven to be accurate. At the time I wrote the piece, the original PlaySta...

Metal Gear Online, Episode 3: A New Hope

243d ago ... What a topical, if irrelevant, title :) Metal Gear Solid, for the most part, has always been about the singleplayer experience. Not until Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, did fans of the series see an introduction of a multiplayer element, and I’d say that it was still just an afterthought when compared to the main game. I had a friend that played the original Metal Gear Online when it came...

Bay 2's first week in US shows big promise by comparison to first game...

266d ago ... So apparently, even before factoring in digital sales, Bay 2's first week of state-side sales have out-done the first week sales of Bayonetta 1's original state-side release, especially after factoring in the difference in install bases during the time of the first game's release and the install base of the Wii U during Bay 2's release. XBox 360 Bayonetta week 1 sales[5 days of data]: 91,668...

My issue with Sony and Cross Buy

271d ago ... Okay, let me first off saying that, I had just got off the chat with customer service on my issue with Call of duty advance warfare. Not only was I absolutely disgusted with Sony and how they choose to handle this situation, and really didn't offer me any help on this matter. First, it all started when I heard about the Cross Buy deal with Call of Duty Advance Warfare on the Playstation Us B...
