The Real Reason Behind Making The Last Of Us Remastered

4d 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

4d 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

20d 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

23d 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

25d 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.

37d 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?

47d 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 $...

Xbox One is doing just fine

56d ago ... Lately, there's been a lot of negative news about the Xbox One. One point however, seems to imply that the Xbox One is selling poorly, especially in comparison to the PS4. There are knee-jerk reactions from some people, saying things like "MS needs a price drop immediately", or "MS should stop including Kinect with Xbox One". However, when you look at the actual numbers, things are looking v...

The Identity of N4G

61d ago ... I've been a part of News4Gamers, a.k.a N4G, since Aug. 17, 2007. That means a long time; not the longest but long enough. I've been here for the Open Zone and the original fanboy trolls that no longer post here. When you've been here long enough, or possibly lurk here long enough without joining, you'll see a common statement made these days. "Screw this site, it's filled with Sony fanboys"...

Next Gen Ports: Why I'd Happily Buy Them

65d ago ... As someone who has bought a PS3 and Xbox 360 I've played my fair share of games, some of them I've loved like the Mass Effect series for example, I've had years of pleasure from my first steps on Eden Prime to the Infamous ending at the Crucible, But I've had more than enough time to enjoy myself and move on to later games. Now this is not a feeling I'm having with the likes of The Last Of Us a...

Why I chose Xbox One

72d ago ... Ever since Sony announced the PS4, the decision on which nex-gen console to choose had been plaguing me. Like many, I was a PS2 owner who switched to Xbox when Halo 1 arrived on the scene and later purchased a 360 when that came out. I was always happy with my 360, but occasionally I'd look over to the Sony camp and become a little envious at all the Naughty Dog action going on over there. T...

Sony, We Need To Talk

76d ago ... I was just reading the article here on N4G where Sony said they don't expect the Vita to sell as much as the PSP and I was pretty disgusted. It's the inspiration for this blog and I will cover a few things I am either disappointed about with Sony, or what I would like to see them do. Sony, you need to stop half-a$$ing your handhelds. If you don't intend to throw your full weight behind a han...

Dear Sony: greedy isn't cool

83d ago ... My beef today is with my favorite console manufacturer. Or at least they were my favorite during the PS3 era. I feel let down. I feel like I bought a Porsche... but its not a well-made Porsche. That's not cool. My DS4 controller thumbstick rubber is wearing thin. It's even beginning to tear on the left stick. The battery runs dry after what seems like about 2 nights of play. The but...

Sony Too™

85d ago ... I'll make this short and sweet (yeah right. I'm always too verbose): We all have favorites. We're gamers, and we're passionate about our hobby. It's only natural to have a favorite. And that's fine. But when your favorite company does something shady, let's acknowledge it. Acknowledging the problem is what allowed the Xbox One to avoid being a completely melted carapace of failure. Ack...

Hard reality. Marvel vs Capcom may never happen again

102d ago ... Despite many fan requests for more DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 or a potential third release, Capcom didn't budge. Now the Marvel license has slipped from their fingers. We are back to the drawing board. A PC release looks like it will never happen (I'll bring this up later). We will need either a PS3, 360 or Vita to be able to play UMVC3 since the successors are not capable of playing o...

It’s 2014, What game are you waiting For? And Why? Is it really a good game, you sure about that?

104d ago ... You know, it’s funny but I’m really starting to wonder about games these days. I mean were finally here in the nex gen, but it’s really not even feeling as good as last gen. At least not yet. Maybe last gen spoiled me, but I have not played anything as good as the blockbusters I was playing at the end of last year - GTA V, The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Battlefield 3. I’m going to tel...

Can I make a suggestion, Nintendo?

123d ago ... It's been a while, hasn't it? You know... life 'n stuff. But I got another thing to talk about, and I'll keep it brief so I don't bore you to death. Lately, everyone's been getting all in Nintendo's grill. Considering them DOA, so to speak. Now despite the fact that my primary console of choice is the PS3, I have nothing but fond memories and respect for the Nintendo consoles I have man-hand...

The 3rd Times A Charm, The PS4 Is In A One Horse Race

129d ago ... The way it looks now the PS4 is about to handily outsell the Xbox One. This will be the 3rd time in a row a Playstation platform has outsold a Microsoft platform. This generation looks to be more of a PS2 type victory than a PS3 type victory. 1. PRICE It's the most obvious so I'll start here. The PS4 regardless of everything else it's better at, is cheaper. This is the first thing uneduca...

PlayStation: A Well Rounded 3rd, 2nd, 1st Party, Indie & PC Developers' Platform

131d ago ... The 3rd Party Developers If you study carefully since day one of the original PlayStation Sony let 3rd party developers take center stage spotlight before their 2nd and first party. Its has been their strategy since day one. Their relationship with 3rd party developers is second to none! A strategy completely opposite that of Nintendo. And the strategy ever imitated by MS even to the po...

Wii U Review: Ask yourself how much are you willing to pay for Nintendo’s 1st party

131d ago ... Nintendo is having a hard time with their console right now, and for anyone asking himself or herself if they should buy a Wii U you should first ask yourself this simple question. How much am I willing to pay to play Nintendo’s 1st party games? That simple question will determine when you should buy a Wii U. Games and Promises Nintendo‘s main goal for the Wii U was to move away from the st...
