Was Driveclub reviewed properly?

12d ago ... Driveclub has finally launched. There are those who love it already, those who are a bit mixed on it, and of course those who think it is trash. The same can be said for the critics as well, if you take a look at all the reviews being published right now. There are 8's and 9's going around, lots of 7's, and even the occasional 5. Now, I've played about 2 hours myself today and do enjoy th...

The Misuse of Metacritic

15d ago ... There’s this teaching that I remember from my youth. A knife is just a knife, it has no inherent good or bad to it. In the hands of a surgeon or chef, it can be used for immense good. In the hands of a killer or thief, it can be used for bad. This pretty much sums up my opinion of Metacritic. It’s a tool. No, not that kind of tool - the other kind. There is a misunderstanding of what Metacritic...

Destiny's Skirmish: An Unbalanced Waste of Time or an Unforgiving Masterpiece?

21d ago ... I was at the Tower looking for some easy Crucible bounties when I saw it. The mission was simple: complete five Skirmish matches. It sounded easy enough, so I grabbed the innocent little bounty and blasted off to orbit, my cousin Zach joining my fireteam before I started the first match. “Work together, and you might survive!” The Speaker warned as Zach, another player and I spawned in. Zach...

Destiny - Don't defend it like it is your child, the reviews are not wrong...but neither are you.

36d ago ... I decided to type up this blog tonight reflecting on the recent Destiny reviews and the user reaction on N4G regarding said reviews. It has sparked a great divide and controversy within the community of N4G and has worryingly led to some outright delusional viewpoints and comments. The rallied defence for Destiny really does show how loyal a fanbase it already has and having only been out fo...

Summer Lessons: A course in Cultural Understanding Part 1

40d ago ... Every so often, something gets announced in Japan that raises a few eyebrows in the West. It mostly has to do with sex, a topic where our cultures seem worlds apart. You get two basic responses when these strange titles come up. The first is one of condescension and ridicule. The second is one that can be summed up as “they’re Japanese, you wouldn’t understand”. Neither one of these responses h...

GAME BITS: WAR THUNDER

72d ago ... Like its Belarusian counterpart, War thunder is an MMO game that caters to WWII military buffs. This short article will center only to game battle instead of the game mode that War thunder offers. Unlike World of Tanks the game is more difficult to play because of its extreme leaning to realistic battle; in World of Tank you have the health point to see if your tank can still carry the br...

Surviving Indie Game “Success”

96d ago ... [b]By Borut Pfeifer, Plush Apocalypse Productions[/b] I’ve made hundreds of people angry at me for something I said on the internet. I guess that’s one way of defining success. When you set out on the path of independent game development, you naturally look to successful games and their makers as role models to follow. You become convinced, because these are the stories you hear, that you...

EA Has Already Managed to Ruin The Sims 4

96d ago ... Last month, Electronic Arts and Maxis issued a statement informing us that when The Sims 4 launches in September this year, swimming pools and toddlers will not be included. Ryan Vaughan, one of the developers over at Maxis, posted a blog that explains that the two features may be introduced later, though nothing is guaranteed. Understandably, this managed to upset and even enrage fans, raising...

We Like Gameplay and That Fits us Fine

109d ago ... [b]By Mikael Haveri, @mbace[/b] The question of corporate values is usually the tricky one, especially if it needs to be defined in a single word. I would say for Housemarque that word is "Arcade", but there is of course so much more.  Even though we are such a diverse crowd, it stills seems that the average gaming time per employee is at about industry standard. Still, our accountant lov...

Games Journalists vs. The Society of Professional Journalists

138d ago ... I watched an interesting video on youtube that linked to a tweet made by Polygon's Brian Crecente, which you can read here. https://twitter.com/crecenteb/status/473101155481169920 So, like the video that showed me this tweet, I decided to take my own stab at this topic and rate how much games journalism follows this code, if at all. The code can be found here. http://www.spj.org/eth...
