Why So Successful? - How Sony and the Playstation Platform Have Evolved

1d 10h ago ... Last generation, I was able to purchase every major console and handheld, basically fulfilling a childhood dream – to own them all. It was an awesome dream to fulfill as a gamer. The sad part was that most of them became paperweights or dust collectors. As you get older, the time just isn’t there anymore….so enjoy and appreciate that free time while it lasts. I predominantly played Xbox and PS...

So, N4G is flooded with spam...

2d ago ... That's right. N4G is flooded with spam. And I'm not talking about spambots, fake users or N4G advertising, I'm talking about the kind of articles that the community has been approving lately. This kind: http://gamecriticism.com/xbox-one-needs-6-games-to-defend-ps4s-huge-lineup/ Now, there is an unspoken rule on N4G that whatever you do before approving an article YOU DO NOT READ IT. You...

My top 11 PS2 games.

24d ago ... Playstation 2 is one of those consoles that was just a juggernaut of its own even though the Gamecube and the original Xbox had slightly better graphics however nothing rivaled it in terms of sheer amount of games and variety it had and it came with a built in DVD player so that was cool for the time. With the great amount of time I had with it I wanted to show my top 11 for my favorite console...

Remasters: You're Doing it Wrong

41d ago ... This generation, we're getting more than a handful of remasters. No really, as thin as game cases are these days, you probably wouldn't be able to hold them all in one hand comfortably, gamers with original XBOX Duke controller hands withstanding. Anyway, we've been getting a lot of them these days and it's gone from mild to shamefully shameless. Granted, the lot of them have been remasters...

RANT: PS4/Xbone Fight Fans are Getting Screwed

45d 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! I love Fighting games but anyone that is serious serious about them know that using a Fighstick is the main way of playing them but there are a couple of problems with this on these PS4/Xbox one...

Do You Even Third-Party Exclusive, Bro?

49d 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

Console exclusivity and gamer hypocrisy

52d 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...

Non-Gamers Do Not Understand Sometimes

65d ago ... To all those people who said that ‘gamers’ are wasting their time with comparing graphics or ‘Who has the better console’ contest, do not really understand us. We are human; we tend to not admit defeat because the console we bought with our OWN money will always be the console we know that is the best choice for us. A slight hint of defeat with either one of those console can cause tons of comp...

The Outrage Cycle - Click, Rage, Repeat

66d 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...

Why I fell in love with Sony.

71d ago ... There are many reasons I am a self proclaimed Sony fan and there are many reasons. Some of the reasons I will outline will seem insignificant, and to most people they will be, but they became huge considerations when writing and when I considered selling my Xbox 360 just to purchase a PS4. Other reasons are reflections on Sony and the way they run their business. These reasons give me confidenc...

The State of Video Games So Far

76d 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...

Assassin Creed Unity: First Impressions? Is It Really That Good?

76d ago ... Wow, Yes, yes and yes this one is awesome, have just been playing for a little while and decide to just do a blog post because I’m loving the game so far. So I thought I would give you my first impressions in-case you are on the fences about the game. Just for reference / this is not a review just my first impressions so far / I’m playing on the PS4. And while I’m sure the XboxOne is pretty...

Bay 2's first week in US shows big promise by comparison to first game...

80d ago ... So apparently, even before factoring in digital sales, Bay 2's first week of state-side sales have out-done the first week sales of Bayonetta 1's original state-side release, especially after factoring in the difference in install bases during the time of the first game's release and the install base of the Wii U during Bay 2's release. XBox 360 Bayonetta week 1 sales[5 days of data]: 91,668...

Digital future will be bad for console gamers

81d ago ... Australian PSN and Xbox Live users get the jitters when some point to the inevitability of digital downloads. Let's take the PSN store for example, for a quick comparison of some new and upcoming releases: PSN: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - $99.95 Lords of the Fallen - $89.95 PES 2015 - $84.95 GTAV - $99.95 Now here's the comparable prices for disc editions from major retailers: C...

PS4 1 Year Later This is for the Players, Are you not entertained?

92d ago ... “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears” By William Shakespeare No Seriously are you not entertained, are you enjoying your PS4? Because the PS4 has been like a bat out of hell since it’s launch, I mean nothing can get in it’s way, not even the XboxOne, and that’s it’s only real competition. (unless of course you want to say PC’s but let’s just talk consoles for now) So has it li...

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

101d 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?

110d 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"

122d 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...
