"Problems" Week One Debut Post: Problems with Unoriginality In Gaming

7d ago ... This being my first post as a game journalist/blogger I want to make a couple of things clear: 1) These are all my own opinions, if you disagree, please feel free to contact me and have an educated discussion about it. Don't just call me names and run off. 2) There are going to be several blog posts between my game reviews. The way my reviews will work is there will be newer games and als...

Will we ever see the end of "Definitive Editions" games?

16d ago ... So it seems like this generation "Definitive Editions" of games are going to be the next big thing. What is a "Definitive Edition" of a game? Judging from what has been released so far you can conclude that the so called definitive edition is one that includes the following: 1)A release on any of the modern generation of hardware including: Ps4, Xbox One, PC, or WiiU 2)Higher resolution,...

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?

37d 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...

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

56d 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...

This has only just begun, remember the Super Nintendo.

61d ago ... I usually wake up every morning and the first thing I do is check the N4G website. I am looking for news on new games, the next batch of free games with the Games with Gold program, and new apps added to the already impressive amount available to Xbox One owners. When I spot a new post that catches my attention I click on it immediately and begin reading. Usually Xbox One related articles are t...

The topic of exclusive content just k...

Sony didn't need to win Gamescom; They have already won 2014

73d ago ... Today I saw two different strategies when comparing Microsoft to Sony and their approach to gamescom. Microsofts announcements were more aimed at selling more xbox ones, particularly in europe This was done by really bringing the hype for the big guns Fifa - Cod - Halo MCC/5 beta - Quantum Break - Fable - AC:U - Tomb Raider. The Fifa stuff was pretty pointless because we know of legends...

EA Access: One step away from disaster

85d ago ... EA have unveiled their new subscription based service which takes a lot of cues from already established services like Games with Gold and Playstation Plus. What EA is offering is free EA games (that come and go from their “vault”), discounts and no doubt DLC exclusivity for their EA games. For £3.99 a month the price isn’t so bad and makes the service an attractive offer for those Xbox One own...

The EA Access and Sony debacle

86d ago ... Sony recently denied a new service by EA for the PS4 called EA Access. Microsoft announced that they would be partnering up with EA to bring this service to those who may want it on their Xbox One. In short, EA Access is supposed to bring discounts, online features, game demos and full games to its subscribers. Sony's action sparked an instant outcry amongst gamers. I've seen comments both for...

Interview with Bifrost's Erlend Grefsrud, Co-Founder (Part One)

91d ago ... [i]Erlend Grefsrud, Co-Founder of Bifrost Entertainment, chatted with Cat about the semi-mystical founding of Bifrost, why he thinks the Xbox One is “ill-conceived”, why you have to be crazy to start a game company in Norway, and games art.[/i] [b]CAT:[/b] Maja and Myriad don’t have a lot in common other than the letter “M” - what is your process for determining a game concept and direction?...

Interview with Bifrost's Erlend Grefsrud, Co-Founder (Part Two)

91d ago ... [i]Erlend Grefsrud, Co-Founder of Bifrost Entertainment, chatted with Cat about the semi-mystical founding of Bifrost, why he thinks the Xbox One is “ill-conceived”, why you have to be crazy to start a game company in Norway, and games art.

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...

In-Engine Vs Gameplay

122d ago ... Since E3 came and went, a lot of crazy buzz has been thrown about with varying degrees of awesome. Microsoft has proven that the Xbox One has a fighting chance with great looking upcoming games, Wii U not only showed its continued relevance but arguably won the entire show and Sony had a megaton of stuff to show, so much so that their conference was a massive two hours of announcements. But som...

A Recap of E3, and Why I Think Sony Won.

133d ago ... E3 was decent this year, across the board. Not one of the big three had a fiasco of a presentation, and even though the jury's still out on whether a Nintendo Direct counts as a conference, it's really about the games. So, let's get down to why I think Sony won. This piece is more or less of a recap of my previous articles, but with some perspective. You can find them here: http://landof...

Microsoft's lack of understanding of what they needed to bring

136d ago ... Before I start, I must confess I was never going to write an E3 blog post. I wasn’t even going to write one after I saw the conferences. What I saw is what I expected to happen which is something I got shot down, here on N4G, for being boring. What change my mind were the endless articles about who won this year. I didn’t mind who they picked (various sites went one way, others went another) bu...

Sony Won Day 0 of E3 2014

136d ago ... Microsoft's press conference definitely caught my attention. C'mon Halo 1-4 for 60 bucks... aaaaaaand beta access to Halo 5! Not to mention an anniversary drop of Halo 2, probably the most competitive FPS of its time, I couldn't have been the only 20 year old kicking and screaming (Will Ferrel?) That moment they showed us Halo fans what we've been longing for. I instantly decided to save up...

I want an Xbox One, but I'm not getting one.

137d ago ... So I've been reading up on the comments for Microsofts E3 press conference, I can't exactly agree or disagree for any of them. I liked just about every game I saw. Each and every one of them looked exciting. Yet with every good game comes a buttload of ridiculous controversy. Just look at Watch Dogs. Here's a couple of post I saw. Keep in mind that they are NOT word for word. My memory isn'...
