Next Generation Thoughts

631d ago ... Regardless of what I say in this blog, we will get a next generation of gaming consoles. I just want to touch on the subject a little as this generation is starting to die out and I want to share my opinion on the matter. Now, if you're reading this, then obviously N4G is a website that you visit regularly. And if you visit N4G regularly, then you know that it is almost impossible to visit t...

Is The Industry Too Accepting When It Comes To Buggy Games?

995d ago ... Before I start, this isn't a hate piece. I like the games mentioned. It is more an observation piece. So we have just had the Spike VGA awards. Looking at the winners from this year and previous years I notices something, arguably, bad when it comes to the winners (especially Game of the Year). The last two years have had some buggy games. Taking a small trip down memory lane to 2010 the...

No it's not ok to manipulate review scores

1048d ago ... So it has recently come to our attention that EA Norway has tried to manipulate review score's for Battlefield 3. As you might expect i was outraged by this, but what upset me more was the fact that there are people actually defending EA.The first claim that people mad is that "everyone does it so it's ok". Firstly everyone doing it is baseless speculation and unless someone can provide evidenc...

RDR: Undead Nightmare, or "How to push gameplay mechanics past their breaking point"

1105d ago ... Red Dead Redemption's a game that interested me from the start. However, my experience with GTAIV was less than pleasant because of the game's (IMO) extremely poor gameplay. And because RDR obviously runs on the same engine, I had my reservations. But recently the game was on sale for 20$, and at the same time all its DLC was available as a bundle for 10$ on the PSN--essentially a 90$ value for...

L.A. Noire Impressions PS3

1178d ago ... Any title by Rockstar excites the gamers.With GTA and Max Payne on their resume it's not hard to predict why.When L.A. Noire was announced, many thought that L.A. Noire would have a similar effect like Red Dead Redemption - Game of the year 2010 - in 2011.Although the game looks like a sandbox action adventure like Mafia, Red Dead Redemption or GTA, it's safe to say L.A. Noire is quite differen...

Just revisited the game "Gun"

1225d ago ... So, here I am, finding myself desperately waiting on Brink. Played through this, played through that....what's this!? "Gun", let's blow the dust off of this oldie and see what it was that made me buy this game in the first place. Wow! So, we know that "Red Dead Redemption" was a follow-up to the less-spectacular "Red Dead Revolver".....but in truth, the two games were so far apart in respect...

Playstation Network downtime

1226d ago ... The Playstation Network has been down now for over 3 days and the effects are starting to show. There has been the usual rage, despair and oaths never to touch Sony product ever again. My own PS3 died last week after 4 years of gaming and good times. I was able to copy most of my saved data and I had bought a new slim 320 GB PS3. But because of the downtime I haven't been able to log on PSN...

GOTY Awards

1356d ago ... Well I do this every year, because I don't agree with many of the choices the major websites pick, as it seems like they're trying to push certain games over others. So here's my GOTY awards. Best Action-Adventure Winner: God of War 3 Runner Up: Red Dead Redemption Honorable Mentions: Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Bayonetta, Darksiders, God of War Ghost of Sparta, Metal Gear Solid...

Stay Classy VGA's

1358d ago ... Alright so I'm not exactly offering up any new opinions when it comes to the Spike Video Game Awards. In fact the VGA's are so terrible so as to surpass personal opinion and become literal fact. And relatively speaking this years VGA's were probably the best. If last year was like getting a root canal, this year was tantamount to being kicked in the teeth. Whenever the show took a break fro...

Rockstar Games is evolving.

1366d ago ... I want to take a break from my "top 10" blogs to discuss Rockstar games for a moment. Rockstar Games holds a lot of nostalgia for me. Their first big hit, GTA III, was the reason I bought a ps2 and I bought every GTA game since. Back then GTA was their ticket into fame, infamy, and fortune. But when this genration hit, Rockstar proved they were not a one trick pony. Red Dead Redemption prove...

BC2 Allows you to play music on PS3

1488d ago ... I'm not sure if this is too ground breaking, but while playing Battlefield:BC2, I stumbled across a hidden feature. BC2 allows PS3 gamers to play music while playing the game! This is only allowed during the single player campaign sadly... but it does work. After this discovery, I quickly tested the rest of my games to see if the same was true. Two more of my games allowed me to play music. One...

The average console owner.

1491d ago ... Yesterday I had ventured into a local walmart to see the selection of games and to find some on sale. A man walks up to me while I am viewing PS3 games and says, "Hey bro, what's a good game to buy?" At this point I am surprised because I only buy games when I really want one or when I see a sale. I decide to help this fellow gamer and show him Red Dead Redemption, a game adored by critics a...

What's wrong with Modnation Racers

1510d 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...

Red Dead Redemption - Better than GTA?

1524d ago ... Red Dead Redemption. I'll be honest, I've never been the world's biggest fan of Rockstar's games. The Midnight Club series has the potential to be a masterpiece, but the corny characters and the beyond ridiculous speeds doesn't half get on my nerves. Every time I hit 200 miles per hour in a Mark 1 Volkswagen Golf through the streets of Los Angeles, I feel like I'd rather pull out my own teeth t...

Why I chose to buy a PS3 this year

1530d ago ... My "old" PS3 is sitting on the shelf of a friend, and it has been sitting there for the past several months. I love the PS3, but with the PC, PSP, and DS taking up all of my time, I wanted to give the system a loving home instead of letting it collect dust. So, I gave away my PS3. Don't worry: the kid owes me, but that isn't the point. My point is that I'm going to buy another PS3 this year...

Innovation... Or Not

1542d ago ... Something's been bothering me for the past few years: innovation. Specifically, the word "innovation" and how carelessly it's been tossed around by gaming "journalists." (Yes, the quotations marks are there to indicate a lack of authenticity and/or legitimacy. More often than not, "innovative" seems to be a nonsense word--a cluster of letters with no real meaning, only a vaguely positive con...

Red "Dead" Multiplayer

1562d ago ... What is up with Red Dead Redemptions multiplayer and why isnt there a larger outcry for a fix of it? I know Rockstar claims they have put a patch out to fix it and yes some things have been fixed (so ive heard)... i say so ive heard because i cant even play the multiplayer right now because all that happens is i get booted out. It is incredibly frustrating to see that fricking "Being sent back...

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

1570d 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...
