RANT: PS4/Xbone Fight Fans are Getting Screwed

142d ago ... Warning:First Thing's First, English is not my first language so don't expect amazing grammar and spelling here. Yes, as the tittle says, PS4,Xbox one Fight Game Fans are getting Screwed and bad!

Do You Even Third-Party Exclusive, Bro?

145d ago ... So with some of the recent rumblings about third party exclusivity and such, I thought it would be a good idea to raise the general morale (and maybe upset the fanboys in the process...not that I'm doing that intentionally). Right, so, with the recent announcement of Street Fighter V as a PlayStation 4 console exclusive, gamers are more or less losing their minds in both good ways and bad. O...

The November NPD Report And What It Means For Xbox One And PS4

146d ago ... Each month gaming companies, gamers, and consumers anxiously await the monthly NPD report. This report provides tracking and analysis of U.S. gaming hardware and software sales and each month, fans of their respective consoles tout the results of the console that managed to top the sales charts in the U.S. For the past eleven months, the Playstation 4 has been the top selling console in the U.S...

Console exclusivity and gamer hypocrisy

149d ago ... The big news to hit the Internet recently, is that Capcom's newly announced Street Fighter V will be exclusive to the PS4 and Windows PC. The mere mention of yet another high profile 3rd party IP getting the console exclusivity treatment has caused outrage amongst gamers. More specifically the Xbox crowd, who are outraged that a game from such a popular, previously multiplat franchise will b...

The Outrage Cycle - Click, Rage, Repeat

163d ago ... I’m staring at a submitted article entitled “PS4 vs Xbox One: Sony’s in Trouble, Not Microsoft”, right next to it is another entitled “Microsoft's Xbox One Is Looking Like a Lost Cause”. I know it’s going to be nonsense. I know that this is an elaborate troll for hits. I can predict the content and I can predict the response in the comments. I’ve been here before. I’m one click away from a sens...

The State of Video Games So Far

172d ago ... Back in 2013 the gaming community was introduced to the next generation of video game consoles, they were shown to be faster, smoother and more powerful then the previous generation, as expected, but never the less the community couldn't contain their excitement for the following year as we would be in the first year of the next generation of consoles, and also we would be introduced to the fir...

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

198d 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?

207d 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"

219d 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...

222d 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?

228d 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

234d 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

247d 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.

252d 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...

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

264d 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

276d 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

276d 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...
