In Defense Of Ground Zeroes

65d ago ... As every man and his dog cram their metaphorical baggage into the overhead storage of the hype train that's destined for the mysterious release date of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, I sheepishly volunteer myself to be the fuddy-duddy who yanks on the emergency stop cord and politely asks the driver to go back to Ground Zeroes-ville. Why? Because only one description lingers after the ri...

Great Lessons From The Order:1886

74d ago ... By now, you've all seen the reviews and personal accounts of experiences with The Order: 1886. Very mixed, depending on who you are which isn't a bad thing. Variety is good and opens the doors for more varied games in the future. At the time of me writing this, the game has a 65 average on Metacritic based on 56 documented reviews. Normally, I'm not an advocate of Metacritic, but it serves a pu...

Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta Impressions

79d ago ... Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s (MCC for short) online launch woes had brought with it a heaping of disappointment and rage among many gamers, including this writer. Out of that ire and contempt from those circumstances came some amelioration in having the opportunity to take a gander at where this series will be going as far as multiplayer is concerned. And while I currently can’t see my...

The Money Grab

85d ago ... In my last two blog entries, I touched on the topics of the Season Pass ( http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/valenka/531688 ) and Dying Light's pre-order bonuses, which were really just early unlocks of poor quality, future content ( http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/valenka/531760 ). For any returning readers, you'll recall some highlights of my Season Pass entry, where I spoke about companies...

You Patreon Me and I Patronize You?

95d ago ... A lot of religious art exists for a simple reason. Artists needed funding and churches were one of the few institutions wealthy enough to underwrite the costs involved in supporting them. Banks and a few other wealthy individuals were also able to pay for these services. In the process, by virtue of the patronage, they dictated the face and definition of art. They decided which techniques were...

Why Don't Gamers Finish Games?

105d ago ... Why don't a lot gamers finish their games, and how many don't finish? How many gamers leave games unfinished? According to Raptr, and Keith Fuller, 9 out of 10 gamers do not finish the games they play. "What I've been told as a blanket expectation is that 90% of players who start your game will never see the end of it unless they watch a clip on YouTube." Red Dead Redemption only has...

Console exclusivity and gamer hypocrisy

152d 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...

Are Games Spreading the Idea of Violence?

152d ago ... Yesterday I have been reading a news from The Guardian, which was about the sale of the recently released video game Grand Auto Theft banned in Australia due to violence against women. I wouldn't discuss violence against women specifically because once it's violence it against all kind of people. The article wasn't too long but it raised a quite large controversial debate topic: is the idea vio...

Was Driveclub reviewed properly?

210d 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

213d 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?

219d 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.

233d 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...

My Personal Top 15 best Looking Games In My 7th Gen Collection

238d ago ... Please remember this is my personal opinion, if you disagree respectively give yours and be constructive and unbiased. It also worth noting that I didn't play several graphical powerhouses such as Rage, Beyond Two Souls and GTA V (I however seen this played on PS3 on my TV ). 15: Red Dead Redemption (Played on XB 360) Red Dead Redemption set new standards for open world graphics, the draw...

Summer Lessons: A course in Cultural Understanding Part 1

238d 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...

The Endless Debate

258d ago ... Every time a small piece of information regarding technical specifications of a future multi platform title surfaces, fan boys spring out of the wood work for a chance to analyse this new data and find new ways to bash, rage, praise, hate, love their platform of choice and or its direct competitor depending on the sentiment. Let's take a look at the biggest highs and lows of each platform an...

GAME BITS: WAR THUNDER

270d 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...

At a Glance: Image and Form

285d ago ... [b]Image & Form[/b] is a video game development studio made up of more than a dozen brilliant, childishly creative and mostly overaged people in Gothenburg, Sweden. They haven’t a clue what they’re going to be when they grow up, but they’ve been at this game development thing since 1997, and are more productive than ever. http://imageform.se/ [b]SteamWorld Dig[/b] is a platform mining adv...
