We Like Gameplay and That Fits us Fine

7d 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

36d 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...

PS Plus: More Indies Please.

68d ago ... I've noticed -- as I'm sure most people have -- that Indies are currently seen as the poor man's alternative to AAA titles but I have to completely disagree. First of all I must confess that back in the day when Indies were all the rage on the 360, I too dismissed them out of hand. It wasn't because I needed a new hammer to beat a console with, it was simply because my idea of an Indie game had...

The popularity of the AAA FPS has more to do with the AAA, and less to do with the FPS

81d ago ... Everyone seems to think that FPS and action games are the only genres that can be successful in the AAA space. But, why is that? Why, suddenly, are there only two genres capable of success, when we used to have a good variety of genres? Some will argue that "AAA" hasn't existed until the PS3/360 gen. I argue that "AAA" has always existed, and is simply defined by a developer pushing the t...

Bubl Draw: A Toddler Review

104d ago ... Some of you N4G detectives may have sussed out that I have a tiny person in my life, The Toddler. What this means for my gaming is that there’s a whole mess of iPad apps downloaded to my Mini, and I am not their target audience. Bubl Draw was sent my way for review, and I know I'm not an isolated case of parenthood on N4G, so consider this your app recommendation for the week! While I was oc...

Magazine Nostalgia: An Interview With Guy Écrivain:

107d ago ... I recently had the opportunity to chat with Guy Ecrivain, the former editor and chief of Press Start Gaming Monthly. PSGM notable for breaking some of the biggest gaming stories in the 90’s was a forerunner on how the industry was to be covered. In my interview with Guy we talked about video game coverage of old, its present state, and possible future. PH: Pleasure to meet you Mr. Ecrivain,...

DX12 on the XBox One is actually great, BUT...

111d ago ... DirectX12 was finally unveiled at GDC this year and it definitely seems promising, especially after the Forza 5 demo. Of course, the PC will get all of the benefits from the new API, but some features are also on the way to the Xbox One. It releases in late 2015. Obviously, this means that the Xbox One will be able to run more graphically intensive games while maintaining it's average resoluti...

Other aspects to examine in game reviews

116d ago ... Despite this new blog being attached to the same focal point as my previous ‘Tired of this Schmitt’ submission, there’s not really that same level of annoyance present for these aspects of game reviews. Whereas before I was just getting tired of seeing the facile responses of some in the game community demanding perfect objectivity within all game reviews so as to strip any tangential facets (...

From Then Til Now: An Amazing Gaming Journey

120d ago ... I feel lucky to be one of those to say I have been around since the dawn of gaming. Born in the early 70s, I got to see the beginning of what would become one of the most sought after hobbies in human history. Something shared by those, young and old. An industry that was born in peoples basements and garages, to the multi million dollar corporations listed on the stock exchange. From crude 10...

Memoirs of an OCD Gamer

203d ago ... Buying a used game online has always been sort of a mixed bag for me. I'm that guy who hates fingerprints on a CD and should a scratch appear, well I may just go catatonic. So you imagine how difficult it is for me to make that dive into the second hand market. I collect primarily for the Sega Dreamcast but I break rank every now and then for the PS2 as well. Apart from an incredible find at a...

Fading Nintendo

218d ago ... Nintendo are great game developers and publishers, but bad console platform holders, their games and legacy prop them up. the younger generation don't remember but they used to have a PS1/PS2 like market domination with the original Nintendo system and Later Super Nintendo, that generation I was a big SEGA fanboy but I always looked at my younger brother with envy as he plays his SNES, later...

PS4 doomed to have only few games? Worrying trend

224d ago ... PlayStation has a library of 2,418 games and PS2 had 3870 games. It took $5-$10 million to develop a PS2 game versus $0.8 million-$1.7 million for the original PlayStation [source: sciencedirect] . In June 2009 Ubisoft reiterated that major titles for PS3/X360 cost $20-$30 million to make and that games for the next-generation may exceed $60 million [source:edge-online]. It is common sense t...

Are the PS4's launch games really that bad, or...?

234d ago ... Over the past few days, gamers around the world are filled with glee now that the PS4 is available on store shelves. And many more gamers will be filled with glee once the Xbox One launches in about a week. Over the past year, the game industry has harped about how PS4 has superior hardware, how the Xbox One has superior online, how the PS4 has superior first-parties, how the Xbox One has a sup...

1080p is a must for next-gen: No it isn't

249d ago ... Recently there was news concerning the Xbox One and the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts game that for many, was disheartening to say the least. From threats of cancelling system pre-orders to extreme bouts of nerd-rage, and enough virtual facepalms to make one's head completely cave in, the internet exploded to the extent that you'd think Activision officially announced that smallpox infected bla...

Why do people rage?

252d ago ... The act of uncontrollable rage over losing in a video game is a fairly common scene in the video game community. There are countless videos on youtube of people “rage-quitting” and there are gamers out there who play online for the sole purpose of hearing the horrific squeals of F-Bombs get dropped over a mic. We call these people trolls. Now, if somebody rages because they were provoked or ins...

Help Me Make a Difference in This World

260d ago ... By. Adam Bankhurst Change. Take a minute to think about what that word means to you. Better yet, think of what that word can mean to a child suffering from a disease that he or she does not deserve. Life, unfortunately, does not deal in fairness, and the cards that are dealt to us are not always in our favor. What life does give us, however, is the power to make a difference. We, as...
