Marvel Taking Control is a Good Thing

175d ago ... So, it's been awhile since I have had the time to really buckle down and write up something new for the site, but I have been keeping up with recent developments regarding a couple of subjects that I really want to talk about. One of these subjects particularly is that Marvel was taking down various titles within digital stores at an alarming rate. Steam, PSN, and Xbox Live saw titles like Marv...

Rant: Where is the Gaming Industry Headed?

252d ago ... Am I the only one seeing this gloom and doom trip that everyone's going on heading into the next generation? Because it's been beyond noticeable to me. Whether it's people saying that consoles are going to be taken over by smartphones, or that gaming development costs are skyrocketing continuously, a lot of people are saying that consoles are going to die out, that digital distribution is go...

No DRM (Gold) - Play the PS4 offline in a submarine Thanks For The $60 (Bronze) - Buy and use the PS Camera for more than an hour, kids under 12 don't count Next Generation (Bronze) - Play a PS4 game that looks and performs better than the Xbox One version of the same game Playback?!?!

Console Contradiction

287d ago ... This is my first blog post, actually its my first post period. So please bare with me. I'm about to talk about the 2 next gen consoles. With Gamescom, TGS, and E3 all finished, I think its fine to compare the consoles now. Of course with new information coming out each day, we can never know what to expect. The PS4 could suck with one post, vice versa with Xbox One. So here's my story. My...

Vita and Wii U; Same Problem, Different Solutions

372d ago ... In all fairness, I do not yet own a Vita. I still intend to get one (most likely after I get a PS4); a platform of its nature will undoubtedly have the potential for great content. So far, the games I wish to get for mine include Persona 4, Tearaway, Gravity Rush, Muramasa: Rebirth and any of the transferable Playstation 1 and digital PSP/Vita games sitting in my PSN account. For me, this will...

How Sony Won Next-Gen In 120 Minutes

398d ago ... After the mixed reviews Microsoft conference got, everyone naturally turned their eye to the next big conference; Sony. Speculations were running rampant, even more so than it was before the platform was first introduced back in late February and expectations were going higher and higher every passing minute, leaving everyone asking the same question at the end; will Sony be able to deliver? Th...

My hopes for the Sony E3 press conference.

404d ago ... It is now only five days until E3. With almost every publisher announcing something big as well as the next gen consoles being shown this might be the best e3 yet. My hopes for the conference is that Sony will show a LOT of games. Not just more gameplay off the titles they have already announced but new games that haven't been announced like Quantic Dream's, GG's and ND's new IP. Saying th...

8th Generation - The Generation of Blood

404d ago ... Looking back, the 7th Gen of gaming was fairly tame. No one actually "lost". Wii, PS3, 360, DS, and PSP each carved out a respectable market, and a few of these (like the PS3 and 360) are still getting big-name releases. Sure, there were times of drought. Sure, there were moments when a console got bruised (like RRoD, or the PSN hack), but no one failed outright. It was the first time that had...

Really only 65 PS3 gamers have moved around the world in the last few years?

406d ago ... I recently moved and in moving I happened to change country, change continent and change PSN region. Moving, even when it’s thousands of miles away is not such a big deal. Yes, packing it’s boring, yes, it takes time to feel at ease in the new home but all in all it’s always a good feeling to wake up in a brand new place. And I adopt the snail approach, always bringing my “house” with me: I pac...

To buy a Vita or Not to buy a Vita.....That is the question!

426d ago ... Today, while I was working hard at note taking in school (and by note taking I mean being on N4G, GiantBomb, etc. and taking video games notes :D) I came across something in my PM box! I've used my PM box numerous times to have multiple discussions with friends, fellow-gamers and mods on N4G, outside of commenting on certain articles (which I can't do much of anyways with only 3 bubbles :/), bu...

Can Hacking/Piracy Be Considered Acceptable?

439d ago ... So with the recent news of the Wii U's supposed hacking, I thought I would ask the question presented in the headline while providing my own thoughts on the matter. Piracy is something I think almost any big gamer is guilty of at one point or another and whether they know it or not. Downloading a free game or perhaps playing a copy that friend made for you, for instance. The use of ROMs, ISO...

Top ten reasons why this was the best generation ever.

452d ago ... Next Gen is almost here but before we move on to the next one lets recap gaming's awesome accomplishments this gen. This is the stuff that made MS, Sony and Nintendo who they are today. In no particular order. 1. In the beginning there was light...a red light. Remember when the Xbox 360 came out? Yeah.. that. It was a mess, the red ring of death was like a plague killing gamer's consoles li...

Soul Sacrifice demo is the worst demo I've played in years

452d ago ... I'm a big fan of the Vita. I have Soul Sacrifice fully-paid on pre-order. I was so excited to play the game, I even converted a spare memory card into one that could be used to download the demo from the Japanese PSN store. I played the first three levels of that demo, loved it, and like many of you I was eager to download the English demo when it came out on the PSN store. And it's a really...

Why Sony's indie initiative means big things for the future

470d ago ... I don't know about you, but I got pretty geeked out after GDC this year. Why? I'm excited about all the games coming to my Vita. Now, I've been happy with the system so far. I bought it only a few months ago, since it's my policy to wait a year or so before buying a system. It helps avoid the "1st year lull" that is all too common with many videogame systems. But after seeing the games Sony has...

Getting your Xbox profile back. Not!

483d ago ... I have 2 Xbox 360's so this is not about how the Xbox sucks and it's not about how the Xbox live sucks. It is about how to get your profile back. You can't. Microsoft has locked down Xbox live like Ft. Knox. I understand why they have. They don't want to be hacked and after what happened to the Psn network who could blame them. The problem lies in how to get your profile back when somethin...

Why Indulge Hatred?

493d ago ... A recurring theme with the comment system here is that more often than not, if you're a fan of something and you say something positive in a related article about that something, you'll receive a lot of agrees and bubble ups. And this is perfectly fine. What I don't understand is when people agree with an obvious troll. This has happened on negative articles pertaining to any of the big thre...

Trophy Tuesdays (2/12/13)

516d ago ... Oh to hear the satisfying little tone of a new trophy increasing my PSN score by a tiny fraction of a percentage point. To someone who isn't a gamer (and even to some who are), it's very difficult to explain the tenacity and dedication with which many Playstation, Xbox, and Steam gamers pursue these seemingly useless little trinkets. Just to get an idea of how far a gamer will go for these digi...

20th February, whats coming?

525d ago ... See the future? Sure wish i could. Like Sony's usual antics, they've released a teaser http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-3GMHIgR-U for an upcoming date. This one being the 20th of February, the date for the supposed reveal of the PS4. But wait, is it the PS4 though? Sony hasnt exactly confirmed anything, just the usual hype from people online and unconfirmed rumors. I for one a...

Where is the GTA 3 HD Collection Rockstar?

622d ago ... HD Collections and games being HD'ed have become a big thing at the end of this cycle. Game companies seem to be trying to capitalise on a little to no work ratio, where they can appease a number of fans. Which as a fan, like me, would gladly pay. Right this second I am eagerly awaiting the release of Okami HD on PSN. I longed to play that game at launch on PS2 but due to similar circumstanc...

Get an Extra Life

635d ago ... Some of you may remember that last year N4G staff and a number of members and friends participated in Extra Life, and for the last four years thousands of gamers have joined together annually to play for 24 hours in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. These days my 24 hour marathons involve my lovely little baby, and so I'm happy to place my support behind other teams of Extra L...
