Titan One Review- "Mods without Soldering"

28d ago ... The Titan One is available online for approximately $60 USD. A device was provided for review purposes. More information can be found at www.consoletuner.com. A digital modding device for console controllers that both makes me giggle with glee and shiver at its application for online gaming, the Titan One is a curious device. The Titan One really shows its colors by working as intended as...

Fanboys Be Like...

31d ago ... Since this generation has gotten underway, the crazies have been overly vocal, supporting or defending their platforms of choice. Nothing wrong with that, except in the past, it was a very different scenario for their company of choice. So I've come up with a list (in no particular ranked order) of some of the silly things I've heard this generation so far. 1. "Microsoft's Cloud will show th...

When does Next Gen truly start?

38d ago ... When we buy a next gen system, we expect at least a game or two to stand out and scream next gen. To make us stand up and say, "wow, I cant believe this is a game!" or "This couldnt have been done last gen". Not just visually, but with gameplay also. I can remember, the entire way back to the Atari 2600, each system launch having at least one or two of those games that made you gasp in amazemen...

Microsoft's Misuse Of Their IPs

40d ago ... Microsoft has been criticized for the past few years for relying too heavily on a few IPs. The original Xbox had a large amount of exclusive games that were first party with games like Halo, Conker, Mechassualt, Crimson Skies, Forza, Project Gotham Racing, Rallisport Challenge, Brute Force, Blink, Voodoo Vince and several other titles being published (and owned) by MS for the Platform. Microso...

ID@Xbox And The Indie Games Conundrum

43d ago ... I'm going to start off this blog post with something most of you should know about me by now but some may not. I'm not really fan of the indie games, nor the extreme focus being placed on them. I view the focus being placed on indie games, clearly evident especially from Sony's conferences where indie game titles take up way too much conference time, to be the answer to a problem all 3 platform...

No, September's PS+ Lineup Does Not Suck

57d ago ... I've been seeing quite a few articles lately regarding September's PS+ lineup, and September's Games With Gold lineup. Many say GWG is better, some others beg to differ. Here's my whole take and opinion on this month's free games, and why everyone's complaining. (My post here is a bit long, I know, but bear with me). In case you haven't been catching up with the news lately, the free games t...

A possible effect Microsoft needs to be mindful of

66d ago ... Like a man beating a dead horse I am going to write about the Tomb Raider deal. I am not a huge believer in writing about something that nearly every publication or users has already written about. But I feel one aspect of the deal is being overlooked; the one company that has the most to lose out in the deal is not Square Enix but Microsoft. Microsoft is no stranger to buying timed/exclusiv...

3 Platform Future: Xbox + PC + Steam = WIN

76d ago ... http://static.digit.in/fckeditor/uploads/xbox360-laptop(1).jpg Welcome to part two of the 3 platform future series. This is a 3 part blog, on what I personally hope will happen to the current game industry removing the need for to purchase 6 different platforms to have access to all games, and instead have a simple 3 platform medium. If you missed the first part, it covered Nintendo and mo...

PC vs Console

100d ago ... Today I'm blogging about which is better to play on a PC or Console? Being a very avid gamer I love to discover new things and play on newer systems whether I am in the store such as, GameStop or at a friends. One thing I've discovered is there are a ton of PC gamers. Awhile I came across a gaming community called Steam. Most if not all gamers have heard of Steam. If not, here's a quick ove...

Surviving Indie Game “Success”

100d 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...

One plus 3 equals 4

113d ago ... The XboX One isn't exactly burning up the charts like the 360 did last gen and the PS4 is looking very tough to beat in terms of sales. With superior graphics, more overall bang for your buck, and an earlier release date the PS4 has put The XboX one behind in numbers with the appearance of little chance of the XboX One catching up. The one advantage that the XboX can have over the PS4 is...

The Bubble Boys

172d ago ... My next piece was going to be about the lack of gay characters in videogames but it has undergone so many revisions that I couldn’t decide on which rough draft to finalize. Still, I promise to word vomit something eligible…but before that, I want to address a growing trend here on N4G with a short satire piece. After all, I’m in my element when it comes to humor so writing this should help with...

Are sounds and music in gaming important?

177d ago ... As we all know games are reviewed in sections and for good reason. Games more so than movie hinge on a lot of elements coming together to make it worth the 59.99$ USD price tag. One of those areas is music and sound. Is sound in gaming as important as some of us think? Well let me ask you this have you ever turned of the sound in a Smack down game? If you answered yes then you might have an...

The Ascension of Indie Games

196d ago ... Games developers can make games in many different forms of organization. Let it be a one-man team, or a full team with a big name publisher helping them to fund and advertise their creations which doesn't work sometimes as the publishers are restricting the team's creative freedom. That is where independent teams come in as they are advertising their own games and let the consumers give feedbac...

The Past, Present and Future of Control (Part 2)

197d ago ... The Casual Conundrum Playstation and Microsoft were undoubtedly, along with the rest of the world, blown away by the success of Nintendo’s little motion machine. Naturally, they each developed their own peripherals that would satisfy the now booming motion market. Playstation announced and released what it called the Playstation Move. Like the Wii, the Playstation Move coordinated with the P...

Why DLC sucks

216d ago ... Now I know the title of this is going to immediately ruffle some feathers. I am also aware that most of those feathers will be of NEW gamers. When I say new I mean any gamer who started his/her career with the PS3 and Xbox 360. You see Downloadable Content didn’t rear its ugly head regularly until the aforementioned gaming machine made their debuts. Downloadable Content (DLC) was in theory an e...

Get it through your skulls;Graphics. Don't. MATTER! (To an extent.)

229d ago ... So news recently came out that Watch Dogs was apparently downgraded graphicswise after its delay. I don't understand HOW they made it look worse. I usually respect the game creators, but I don't know what made them think it looked better than before. I could've had this back in November for the PS4 or Wii U or Xbox 360, yet it was delayed to "polish." Now, is the downgrade worthy of CANCELLI...

7 Aspirations for Destiny

232d ago ... 2014 looks set to be an incredibly exciting time for the videogame industry. Next to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 edging gracefully into the twilight years of their impressive legacies, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are slowly but surely gathering the pace required to supersede them, and with games like Titanfall, Rust, Hotline Miami 2 and Dark Souls 2 all on the horizon, whatever your fo...

The great resolution-gate hypocrisy

243d ago ... Disclaimer: Before I say my piece and get torn by either side, I come from a neutral gaming background owning every system I could coax from my parents/afford by myself. There always have been and there always will be small but vocal groups of fanbases who will mercilessly defend their favoured platform even when it's neither in their intetests as a consumer or backed by any sense or logic....

What is Innovation? And does it matter?

251d ago ... While some think the Wii U gamepad and Kinect 2.0 are excellent features to the consoles, some think that they should be optional, and follow in the footsteps of the PS4, which supports Off-TV play and motion control separately. I agree and disagree. It was the right move for Sony to let people get more Innovation out of there console at a different price, and simply let us pay a cheaper price...
