An Interview with Calvin Goble

39d ago ... [b]Kyle:[/b] Upsilon Circuit is certainly shaping up to be one of the most interesting titles of, well, ever. Part videogame, part gameshow, all permadeath. Can you elaborate on your sources of inspiration, both in gameplay and execution? [b]Calvin:[/b] A huge part of our inspiration comes from our previous game Legend of Dungeon. It’s a roguelike and I’d been thinking about permadeath in t...

The Wii U is DONE: How the Nintendo NX could re-write the rules

64d ago ... Amid the madness that was E3 2015, one detail that was spoken of so briefly that the term ‘glossed over’ doesn’t quite feel accurate–the Nintendo NX console–made a quiet blip on the radar before taking a backseat to the new additions to their longstanding franchise Super Smash Bros. (which really showed me the direction the company is determined to go in), plushies and arguably way too much tim...

Titanfall 2

112d ago ... First time poster, long time Titanfall fan [>300hours] here. With Titanfall 2 being recently announced. I keep hearing the following suggestions for what Titanfall 2 needs: more customizations, single-player campaign, more guns and titans, more pilots and less AI grunts,etc. While not bad suggestions, I feel they demonstrate a deep misunderstanding of what titanfall is and a desperate attempt t...

Opinion: How Splatoon should do voice chat.

141d ago ... We've all experienced this before in public shooter matches; you're doing your own thing when suddenly someone pops into the match you're in, and this person either has a foul mouth you'd rather not listen to, or has a lot of distracting background noise going on. So now, you have to spend precious seconds, in a match with a time limit, either delaying a respawn or finding a safe place to hi...

GamerGate, Video Games, and N4G Submissions

229d ago ... To say that GamerGate is a touchy subject at this time in video games is kind of an understatement. It's a topic that is easily prone to differences of opinion as one's preferred choice in gaming platform, and it is about as likely to generate furor between those who disagree. Having said that, please read the following and understand how we intend to moderate GamerGate news on N4G. N4G ha...

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

336d 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...

TitanFall's Bots (And 4 of its Criticisms)

560d ago ... One of the most controversial addition to TitanFall are its bots. I've noticed criticism for their inclusion, but also some confusion about their role and how they are utilized. Further, they are also the source of deeper criticisms involving player count and Respawn's ability to design a game with good A.I. I aim to look at four of these criticisms centered around the inclusion of bots, and...

I am announcing that I am writing a blog post

593d ago ... I wanted to take a moment to announce that I am going to write a blog post right now. The blog post just started. I thought you should know. Silly, right? But don't worry, I haven't completely lost it. Rather, I'm just practicing to be a videogame journalist. What, you hadn't noticed? Bioware Austin just announced they're working on an unannounced game. There's a rumor that Nintendo's R&D...

Why I play: Uncharted 3's MP

Well, Im writing this blog here to change that. Whenever you see the name Uncharted 3, I want you to remember not only of its pretty grand single player, I want you to remember its pretty dang fun mutliplayer. Here's some of the reas...

Gaming Is Art, And Then Some

753d ago ... As technology developed, the human race managed to manipulate it to their liking, spawning devices used for entertainment, health, therapy, convenience and many more ingenious uses. Such uses of technology can be seen through TVs, X-RAY scanners, cars and most of all, gaming. For the first time in human history the act of gaming allowed consumers to live out the life of another - often ficti...

Atlus and Its New Home: Speculation and Paranoia

771d ago ... A recent article on N4G has just popped up showcasing its reasoning for a prediction involving Nintendo purchasing the newly available Atlus since their parent company went bankrupt (though the article inaccurately states that Atlus itself has gone bankrupt). This spawned a great deal of controversy in the comments section with people claiming tooth and nail whether it was a good or bad thing....

"Pwar of teh Clowd"- cutting through the smoke and mirrors, to expose the man behind the curtain.

773d ago ... Ever since the reveal of Xbox One, on May 21st, they have been touting the "Power of the Cloud". Although they never fully explained, what this Powerful Cloud can do. They did allude to Magical powers. Making the xone 3x, 5x, even 10x,. more powerful ,. Or comparing it to the Incredible Hulk.. All of this is Incredibly Absurd, and ridiculous. Insomniac explains the cloud for Sunset Overdrive...

Top 5 Franchises of the Gen

882d ago ... We all know by now that the PS4 is coming next holiday season and the next XBOX is probably going to be announced at the upcoming E3. That and I have no idea what gen the WIIU is in if any of you do fill me in. So with the end of this gen fast approaching I propose to you the reader what I think were the five most important gaming franchises that really made the gen. I use the word important no...

Mario's Legacy and Where the Plumber Should Head Next

921d ago ... Video games have come a long way since Ralph Baer first created Pong. The industry has given us as gamers beautiful, graphical, artistic games that have taken our breath away. They have woven incredible stories and powerful emotions into a game. They have also made game that started as simplistic 8-bit arcade games, and re-invented them in new innovative ways. One of the greatest examples of...

Guild Wars 2 Vs. Borderlands 2: Which Is The Better Game Part 1 - Guild Wars 2

1055d ago ... Greetings my ever loyal minions! I know that you have been anxiously awaiting my return, and just to make you yearn that ever little bit much more for me, instead of returning when I was able to, I spent the next several days at home entertaining myself with two wonderful new sequels to games that have already made smash hits with the original games that spawned them. And after long nights with...

A night in DayZ

1098d ago ... 3AM. It’s raining outside. I’ve spent the last six hours putting together a budget gaming rig. Despite previous reservations, everything has come together without incident. All the components snapped together with relative ease and to my amazement the machine fired up first time. I’ve sat through installs of Windows 7, Steam, Arma II, Operation Arrowhead and DayZCommander, determined to get eve...

Gamescom 2012 recap and played games

1104d ago ... Gamescom is a cool event and I'm glad I attended it this year as well. I really enjoyed the games, I really hated the Razer and Roccat booths that make such a deafening noise you can't hear what you're playing. I missed Tony Hawk's show, but watched a very cool one of acrobatic bicycles! Well, let's talk about the games, then: SONY: first of all what’s always cool about Sony’s zone a...

Awesomenauts & the Future of MOBA Games

1112d ago ... SO I've been playing a lot of Awesomenauts lately (check the video for my take on it, and you can win a copy while your at it) and have been giving a lot of thought to the idea of MOBA games in general and what a game like Awesomenauts means for the genre. In the past a game could be defined as a MOBA if it: had an overhead view of a battlefield divided into 3 lanes with each protected by oppo...

Why Remake Final Fantasy Vii?

1125d ago ... Final Fantasy Vii has sold almost 10 million copies to this day. It's a cult classic and it's many peoples first Final Fantasy title. Fans have been clamoring for a remake of Final Fantasy Vii. Does the game really deserve a remake? When players first popped the final fantasy vii disc into their ps1 they were greeted with great visuals, (for its time) great gameplay, and memorable FMV clips...
