Pendulum can swing in any direction Xbox One/PS4

233d ago ... Its amazing how these discussions all go back and forth. To many times the comments constantly change or it seems to favor one company over another. Even worse how the same commentators constantly give an opinion or create an entire different story. When the Xbox 360 came out it was the platform for Top AAA titles and indies. When the PS3 came out it had a few AAA titles and less indie games...

Are we ready for Next-Gen?

237d ago ... The question I have for everyone is "Are we ready for Next-Gen?" or are Sony and Microsoft releasing new consoles too soon? A year ago I would've said yes I am ready, I was getting tired of Xbox 360 and PS3. I kept telling people how much I wanted something new refreshing, and interesting. The PS4 reveal was when I thought really hard about it and how much we aren't really ready for a new conso...

The Presi-Console Election

253d ago ... I first heard this analogy on one of Giant Bomb's excellent podcast. They likened the E3 press conference between Sony and Microsoft as the presidential election with one trying to take a jab at the other. So in the spirit of me being bored on a Tuesday afternoon, I thought I will have a bit of fun and go a little bit insane. Microsoft is Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney did have a hard time avoidi...

Thank you Sony.

256d ago ... We have all been there toying with the idea to just give up on gaming and live a normal life they say. But sometimes you have to wonder to yourself if there is such a thing as a normal life without games. I had this episode about 3 months back after a long run with Microsoft's console that is the Xbox 360.I was playing as regular as every day and starting to get very bored with the online as...

Dark Horse/Backburner Game?

267d ago ... Right I usually don't do blogs, or even post comments for that matter but thats besides the point,seeing as Pops and dedicated amongst other of you do quiet a few good blogs, I figured what the heck. Sure this blog will have nothing to do with the Phil Fish fiasco, which I have no idea nor the slightest interest in to be honest, instead this blog will cover what has been some of the top notc...

Xbox One self publishing to be what people expect?

273d ago ... Today information leaked on MS enabling self publishing for indie games on the Xbox One and that no developer kit would be needed and the console you have at home can be used. Now initially that sounds great and people on the internet seem to be happy about this, but there is one thing that might make the news less great. On the Xbox 360 we already have the, probably not well known, XBLIG or...

Xbox One: the console that divided a fanbase

274d ago ... Let me just get a couple of things out the way before diving into the topic at hand. I am not a fanboy, I know most of you hear this all too often from those who end up being blatant fanboys, but trust me I am not one of them. I've had pretty much every major console release ranging way back from the NES all the way up to my current consoles (the PS3, Xbox 360 and the Wii) and have enjoyed each...

Xbox one is being burdened by Kinect

However, this is not the case and if check out my profile you will see that I have both an Xbox and PS3 game...

Time-traveller: It's 2006 and Sony's gonna win!

290d ago ... Hey everyone, my name is Dedicated to Gamers. I know we're all excited about the next generation of consoles but I wanted to bring everyone back down to earth and talk about the Xbox 360, the Playstation 3, and the Nintendo Wii. Now, these are just my personal predictions, but I'll do my best to support them with facts. I really think that Sony is going to go for another landslide victory. T...

Post E3, My Thoughts On The Eighth Generation of Gaming

309d ago ... Yeah, I know, all the hatred toward the Xbox One must be getting pretty tired now (and with all due respect, I commend the Xbox fans who put up with it), but with E3 having passed, I thought I would weigh in my thoughts on E3 and what may come from the rest of this very young generation. Microsoft's E3 conference was... not bad. It truly was not. People demanded games from Microsoft, and whi...

Microsoft it is time to provide a clear message

311d ago ... The problem with Microsoft is the messaging. How is DRM important? What are the benefits of being always onlne? Why charging a fee for used games can be beneficial as long as I don't see a difference in my used game purchase. Address the ability to share games with 10 friends and families as an excellent idea especially since on my current system(Xbox 360), I have hardcore gamers on my frien...

Let the Hypocrisy Flow

317d ago ... Xbox One doesn't have backwards compatibility? No biggie. Ps4 requires payment to play online? I wipe myself with $5 a month! Xbox One has mandatory installs? Whatever, man; Halo! I read a blog by DedicatedToGamers a few days ago, in which he said (in summary) 'I'm not afraid of a console with bad policies, I'm afraid of the gamers that accept them'. I must now concur with grave prejud...

EA Conference and Review

317d ago ... Plants vs. Garden Warfare: Exclusive to Xbox One and later Xbox 360. 3rd person Action game (very shooter heavy though). It’s interesting to say the least, and looks surprisingly good graphically (running on Frostbite 3.0). It could be a fun multiplayer co-op game, but I personally can’t take this serious. Love PvZ though. Peggle 2: Announced? TitanFall: More gameplay footage. It’s C...

Microsoft’s E3 Show and Rating

317d ago ... Microsoft knew they had to come hard and be all about games after the horrendous Xbox One reveal, and that’s exactly what they did. But did it work? Metal Gear Solid 5: Microsoft kicked the game off with Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain, and boy does it look amazingly good, however, it’s also coming to PS4. It seems like MS and Sony have switched lovers with Sony courting Bungie, and Micro...

X1 and DRM: It's already been tested profitable.

319d ago ... As far as DRM and borrowing games goes, Microsoft already has this in place whenever you purchase a title off of Xbox Live. They have been practicing this since XBLA started. The arcade games and On Demand titles require DRM so you cannot copy them over to another Xbox 360 in your house and play the full versions unless you also have your gamertag with them. Then if you didn't transfer the lic...

Looking back at this console generation...

323d ago ... I find myself sitting here today, on the verge of the next console generation. The Wii U was the first to push their next console out the doors. Now with the Xbox One and PS4 arriving supposedly later this year, I feel as though it is most appropriate to actually take a look back and see what I thought of this generation. These are simply my views on things. Nothing more, nothing less. ==...

A harsh but honest criticism of Xbox One

328d ago ... I can safely say I’m known for my harsh criticism of Microsoft, not just here on N4G but all over and even among friends. The root of my disparagement is often dismissed as blind fanboyism and I understand this need to discredit my opinion in the absence of a compelling argument but, whether you believe me or not, it actually stems from what was once great admiration. Admiration of great hard...

Microsoft should have went first

337d ago ... Highlights and reactions MS new console will be officially known as “Xbox One” Multi-Media: Great multi-media services, and nice Kinect controls (I called the gestures and voice control last year), but I could care less. Guess the former MS rep who quit wasn’t lying. Xbox One specs: 8-Core CPU, 8GB of RAM (no confirmation of DD3 / DDR5), 500GB HDD, Blu Ray, HDMI, USB 3.0. Xbox One...

My top 5 stupid lies about nintendo in the last days.

340d ago ... 5-"Frostbite 2 didn’t run well on the Wii U" Frostbite 2 supposedly didn’t run well on the Wii U… but Cry engine 3, which produced arguably the most graphically intensive experience to date for consoles with Crysis 3… was running on the Wii U… and running very well. But hey, that Frostbite 2… it can’t do it! The fact is that the console contains the necessary requirements to play B2 (B2 M...
