Gamers Nostalgia - The Special Games

2h ago ... Being a gamer my whole life has given me many moments of happiness and excitement. From the unexpected joy of my parents buying me an Atari in the very early 90's to getting my first NES for Christmas and being amazed by Mario games! Eventually, After the snes and megadrive aged, the Nintendo 64 came along, Mario 64…. Wave racer… Mario kart, it was awesome. Then throughout my life, defining my...

Oh noes! It's 30 frames per second!!

248d ago ... Recently, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was condfirmed to run at 1080p 30fps on the PS4 and XBO. I expected this considering how quiet the devs were about frame-rate. What I wasn't expecting was the reaction. Obviously, the game is not worth $60, especially for the people who have already played Tomb Raider. Having said that, I have no idea why people are getting so angry from this news. M...

My 2013 Games of the Year

267d ago ... Only a few days left in 2013, and what a year it was for gamers. For this list, I picked 9 games from across all current gaming platforms. Although it was very difficult to pick only 9 games from this year, there are plenty of games that I haven't even tried yet (GTAV, AC4, Gone Home) which just goes to show how great of a year it was. This list is simply meant to highlight 9 of the very, very...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 13: NFS Most Wanted

973d ago ... I was pretty skeptical about this title until I watched my friend play it and decided it was not only worth playing, but worth writing about. I find that Need for Speed honours the illegal street racing theme much better than Midnight Club does - mainly because of the simple fact that gameplay is better, in my opinion anyway. I like the customization in Most Wanted but the driving mechanics cou...

PlayStation Vita RPG's

1015d ago ... I think it's safe to say that most gamers are looking forward to the launch of PlayStation Vita. However, there's one genre that I wish we saw more of on the Vita's launch lineup: Role Playing Games. Don't get me wrong there's a lot on Vita's launch lineup that I am looking forward to: Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, and ModNation Racers: Road Trip to name a few. I just wish there was...

Forza Motorsport 4 vs Gran Turismo 5

1044d ago ... After reading some of the articles on N4G I feel compelled to do a comparison piece because some of the comments and reasons given are pathetic. I'm level 32 on GT5 and 62 on Forza 4, the reason I'm not level 40 on GT5 is because when I was making space on my hard drive for my free games off Sony I stupidly deleted my save file and had to start again. But I think level 32 still makes me qualifi...

Looking back in history (Ridge Racer Type 4)

1164d ago ... RIIIIIIIIIIIIDGE RACER EVERYBODY! Hell yeah Riiiiidge Racer! When you were a 10 or 11 year old kid and put your disc in your beautiful PSone, you only wanted a few things: Fun, a challenge, some nice sounds and good GFX. Ridge Racer Type 4 for me was this experience. It is amazing how in its time a game with 32mb or something around that much of GFX Ram felt like the most realistic game....

Forza Motorsport 4

1199d ago ... I've been playing GT5 since launch day and i'm loving it, I take part in a weekly series called SSCS which is run from GT Planet by a guy called virtualbornracer. It's what GT5 is all about, great racing and you can't fault GT5 on the racing aspect. The physics are spectacular, it provides a driving experience you can only be bettered on PC and that says a lot for the game. But as for everythin...

EA's E3 Conference

1204d ago ... Mass Effect 3. The game looks great, from what I could see all of the minor graphical problems and annoyances from the previous games, are gone. The new engine also brings, better textures, lighting, and effects showing a nice step up in therm of graphics. Mass Effect 3 also seems to be MUCH more action based, but they have to show these segments to keep the audience entertained, so we’ll ha...

GT5 made me see the truth

1337d ago ... I love my racing games and the main franchise I have been playing over the years has been Forza, the latest being Forza 3 and I used to think that game was a sim. But recently I bought GT5 and I wasnt expecting that much because I hated prologue to the exstent that I condemd the Gran Turismo franchise in general, don't get me wrong it looked great but to me everything elese didnt feel right. Th...

What Call of Duty and Medal of Honor can learn from Nerf N Strike for Wii.

1477d ago ... ZOMG!!! "Did he say, Wii!?!!" Yes I did. My son received this game the other day and for all intents and purposes this is an on rails shooter with good hit detection and aiming. That said, there is one feature that really took me aback in such a "casual core" game. Weapon customization. During play we were able to unlock weapons and earn canisters (in game currency.) While upgrading...

ModNation Racers Post-Patch Impressions

1508d ago ... I bought ModNation racers a while ago, completed most of the campaign but then held off completing it because of the impending update - I thought playing without such awful load times might be more enjoyable. Well, two days ago patch 1.02 went live. How are the load times? Well, they are still long, but no longer unbearable. By Joystiq's calculations, the load times are 30% shorter than befo...

Why I've bought every game with a level editor

1527d ago ... DOOM, Halo 3, Little Big Planet, ModNation Racers, Far Cry 2, Crysis, TimeSplitters, etc. I've bought all of them, because it makes me feel one step closer to making my own game. I've tried the C++ route, well... I've tried and given up. I've tried even using game engines like Unity and UDK, and given up. I cannot grasp making a game when it offers stupidly high amounts of options, or cod...

What's wrong with Modnation Racers

1532d ago ... About a month ago I decided to finally spend my money and buy Modnation Racers. I loved making tracks in the demo and thought the racing was better than other kart racers, and most of all I had fun with what little the demo offered. The first week I played Modnation, I loved it. I didn't really care about the horrendous load times, as long as I got to do what I wanted to do. And after a week of...

Pissed off PSP Go owner.

1552d ago ... First off. I want to point out that I am from Australian and I have access to the Australian PSN Store. So, the PSP Go. Jeez. Honestly it's a great device. I don't have to carry around my UMD's which I love. I hated that. Carrying 5 games on me was too much. With the PSP Go, all my games are on the drive. Brilliant. Now. There are two games that I love and cannot live without. What are t...

Modnation Racers demo is... fun

1587d ago ... I was as suprised as I could have been at replaying the modnation racers demo over and over today and last night... Not only do I not like racing games, but I most definitely do not like playing racing games alone. How shocked was I as I sped and drifted about that I was actually enjoying myself, more or less from the get go? Drifting is very manageable, I mean you can really drift with eas...

2010 games you shouldn't miss - playing the hardcore way: God of War 3

1592d ago ... Well, the first month of 2010 are gone already and we there have been some amazing games already. This year should be a huge one for games, even bigger than the last one. Many very promising games are coming (Alan Wake, Modnation racers, Red Dead Redemption) and E3 is just around certainly with big announcements (apart from the ones revealed already, for example Little Big Planet 2 and Assass...
