Can Microsoft Take Back Gaming This Holiday 2015?

4d ago ... I don’t know but I am excited to see what they will do. I own a PS4 but I’m a gamer. So I still get excited for new games. And this fall it looks like Microsoft is done playing around and is about to release it’s big guns. That means it’s franchise players like Halo 5 and Gears of War. If that doesn’t get the hardcore gamers excited I don’t know if anything will. Hell I don’t even own the sy...

How Can The Elder Scrolls Get Away With This, CD-Keys?

4d ago ... ***Update*** -The developers have come out and stated what you see below. /But it has not been stated that you will not need a key for your ESOTU Online account/ Which is needed to sign into the game and play online - Until this is cleared up I will remain on the fence. -But they have stated, "The physical console version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited does not require a one...

Is Digital Starting To Take Over, I Find Myself Buying Everything Digital?

10d ago ... It’s funny but if you talked to me when the PS4 first came out I would have told you, yeah I’m only going to get a few games digitally. But then something happened, I started buying everything as a digital download, in-fact I love digital. There are a few things that make this really sweet for me, and of course there are downfalls but first let’s look at the reasons it’s so good. Pro’s:...

Why Nintendo Should Put Mario On PS4 and Xbox One?

11d ago ... It might sound crazy when you first think about it, but don’t let that stop you from thinking about it. Because as crazy as it sounds there is some genius to this madness. Ok Forget about the fact that Nintendo would never allow that to happen. This is a blog post there are no rules, we can let the mind go to a place that doesn’t exist - Let’s just pretend for a second that Nintendo had a n...

Is the Console War Over, Has PS4 Won, Is it Time for Xbox Two?

21d ago ... This is just a question, not a war, just a simply question I would like to ask out loud. Is the war over, how do you see the consoles future playing out. Have we the consumer already decided that PS4 is the winner? And If so, then I’m writing this to ask you what do you think needs to be done, what does Xbox do now? This is really interesting, it’s a clear battle of sales right now, and i...

Mortal Kombat X PC Port - Badly Optimized

34d ago ... Now as I got my hand on the most waited game, but believe me, the same way it given me excitement has also pissed away my mood. No doubt it is one my favorite games of all time with all the new character like Erron Black, new ailities, arenas and game play has driven me crazy. I just can’t put my controller down as there is always a new experience. But one thing that has sort of taken 30% of my...

Does Battlefront Really give Sony the edge over Xbox this holiday?

37d ago ... In Case you haven't heard, Sony has obtained the marketing rights for the newest iteration of Star Wars Battlefront. The game is set to release November 17 and will likely be a huge title for the holidays. This has led some to make claims such as the following (in fact, is one of the hottest articles as of today): "The biggest bit of news from today’s trailer may be that Sony has nailed the...

Exclusive games and how we should view them

56d 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...

Video Calling on the PS4. Is it coming soon?

75d ago ... A new show called "Powers" just launched today. Fans of the comic book were excited to hear that Sony had teamed up to publish the show, and members of Playstation Plus were excited to hear that they would be receiving the entire season free. Excited by this show and the hype around the comic series I hop on my PS4 this morning and watched the first three episodes, sadly I have to wait weekly t...

Nintendoom: Part 3: Specs., Price, and Performance

91d ago ... First and foremost the console has to be more powerful, but most importantly, easy to develop for (something all developers benefit from). The PlayStation 4 is the perfect example of giving developers, the gamer, and the community what they want, and reaping the rewards for it. At $199 - $249 the console can’t be a powerhouse if it launches between 2017 - 2018, but at worst it should be on pa...

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

119d 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...

So, N4G is flooded with spam...

120d ago ... That's right. N4G is flooded with spam. And I'm not talking about spambots, fake users or N4G advertising, I'm talking about the kind of articles that the community has been approving lately. This kind: http://gamecriticism.com/xbox-one-needs-6-games-to-defend-ps4s-huge-lineup/ Now, there is an unspoken rule on N4G that whatever you do before approving an article YOU DO NOT READ IT. You...

The Here and Playstation Now

123d 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...

Gaming Under Relative Adversity

152d ago ... The holidays are a time to spend with you loved ones, the ones nearest and dearest to your heart – PS4, XB1, 3DS, PC etc – whatever your poison. Every year, I have grand designs to use my little free time to put in some serious gaming, particularly of the RPG variety. However, year after year, I have my quality time invaded upon by; you guessed it – my relatives. No, I don’t care about what yo...

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

167d 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...

Console exclusivity and gamer hypocrisy

170d ago ... The big news to hit the Internet recently, is that Capcom's newly announced Street Fighter V will be exclusive to the PS4 and Windows PC. The mere mention of yet another high profile 3rd party IP getting the console exclusivity treatment has caused outrage amongst gamers. More specifically the Xbox crowd, who are outraged that a game from such a popular, previously multiplat franchise will b...
