Prismata — The Story of a Game That Shouldn’t Exist [Part 1]

34d ago ... [b]By Elyot Grant, Founder, Lunarch Studios[/b] Two years ago, I made an irreversible decision that would shock my family, excite my friends, and change my life forever. I dropped out of school because of a video game. I remember it like it was yesterday. July 26th, 2013—the day on which I submitted my letter of withdrawal to the MIT Computer Science Graduate Office. On that day, I wil...

N4G: Then and Now

53d ago ... With the relaunch of my site this past May came my first reacquaintance with N4G since late 2012, and while I'm happy to see the site's become even more popular and the submissions pouring in from all corners of the galaxy, I have been alarmed and disappointed at the state of its community - specifically, the lions pit which is the approval system now. I thought going into this post, some qu...

How Alienated can the game industry become for a gamer?

194d ago ... How Alienated can the game industry become for a gamer? Before 2006 gaming wasn't much of an active role for me, there was plenty of other activities that seized my mind that at the time I wouldn't even believe or even fathom the idea that after picking up an xbox360 it would turn into my own lifestyle. I remember the day like it was yesterday. I had a good 400 bucks to blow at gamestop,...

Are Games Spreading the Idea of Violence?

270d ago ... Yesterday I have been reading a news from The Guardian, which was about the sale of the recently released video game Grand Auto Theft banned in Australia due to violence against women. I wouldn't discuss violence against women specifically because once it's violence it against all kind of people. The article wasn't too long but it raised a quite large controversial debate topic: is the idea vio...

277d ago ... I hope everyone had a great day yesterday. We also appreciate everyone sharing what they were thankful for. Now, I have a slight admission to make on my part... we actually had 3 $50 Amazon US gift cards to giveaway, so we had 4 winners! Here are yesterday's lucky lot. === The 3 people who won a $50 Amazon US gift card are: TotallyNotGlenn -- who is thankful for his mom, his colleg...

Amiibo's looking cheaper than first shown.

310d ago ... I came across this article yesterday pointing out how Link had changed in design, many people argue it's still the same but anyone with a keen sense of detail can notice they aren't nearly the same anymore. Not only did they change the stands, the figures themselves seem to be lacking in the same quality they were initially shown off in. As someone who was excited to start collecting some of...

Backlogs Part 2.

494d ago ... Yesterday, I brought up the topic of backlogs, but the initial topic was more general. Perhaps you're more interested in finding out where your backlog fits on the backlog spectrum, according to my scale. I don't care if my authority on the matter is questionable, because this is my blog, not yours. Anyways, here are the different stages of backlogs, and the symptoms to watch out for: 1....

Finding Hope with Grand Theft Auto Online

564d ago ... For those who follow my contributions or those who keep up with daily blogs, you'll remember my submission two weeks ago where I discussed Grand Theft Auto Online and its dwindling fun factor. I'm proud - and very surprised - to admit that today, I've discovered a newfound appreciation for the online community and I'm finding hope with Grand Theft Auto Online. Rockstar Games released a new c...

Gamers, Start Holding Publishers And Developers Accountable

587d ago ... Many of you may have noticed a few story's here and there regarding Microsoft and Machinima getting caught trying to "bribe" popular video game related youtube channels (basically asking them to not say anything negative in regards to the Xbox One) I know this is pretty much "yesterdays news" but I'm bringing it up again now so we can avoid any knee jerk reactions. It's no secret that certai...

Final Fantasy XV not appearing at TGS: What it really means.

713d ago ... Yesterday, it was confirmed that FFXV would not be at TGS and I seen some pretty pissed fans. I wasn't happy, but these guys were blowing it out of proportion. 'Screw you SE!' and 'SE will die soon'. Well guys, I don't think it's much of a big deal. Now for people saying that it isn't ready and in early development... WRONG. If it wasn't ready to be shown at TGS, they would not have shown a...

Regarding Ubisoft's Muck-Up of Watch Dogs

761d ago ... Yesterday, a trailer showcasing actress/comedienne Aisha Tyler's cameo appearance in Watch Dogs was released. For some, Tyler's appearance was nothing to blink twice over, while for others, footage showcasing her character could not come fast enough. Now, I'm sure most people are wishing it never came at all. The [unfinished] video showcased Aisha Tyler walking down a street in the more busi...

What is a "Nintendo fan"?

784d ago ... I'm not the one to indulge myself in the matters of fanboyism or console favoritism, but a comment on a particular news article yesterday challenged my identity and made me reconsider what I stand for. What that comment was, you may ask? "ZombiU was never going to be successful being exclusive to Wii U because many Nintendo fans aren't into those kind of games" This blog is not only a res...

Nintendo Can Save Themselves

797d ago ... It seems like just yesterday I was in Elementary School, going over friends' houses and playing N64 all afternoon until my parents came to pick me up. Those were good times for gaming. Everybody had a Nintendo 64, and it was even something we would talk about in school all day. There was Zelda, Mario, Donkey Kong, Banjo Kazooie, and Goldeneye 64. That's all I really have to say. I mean, everybo...

Xbox 180: a victory for gamers.

803d ago ... I've been planning to write more on the Xbox One and it's restrictive, invasive DRM for a while now, but I also wanted to wait and see how it all paned out, or at least wait until the news calmed down a bit and we could all get a more clear cut and accurate picture of exactly what Microsoft are attempting to implement, and why exactly they felt the need to segregate consumers with such a divisi...

Why Sony won E3 (it's not why you think)

811d ago ... 25 years from now, on the brink of the next-next-gen, people will be asking one another in hushed tones "I wonder if so-and-so will pull a Sony like they did with the PS4..." History was made yesterday, and it's for a very simple reason: gamers won. For the first time in years, a multi-billion dollar company paid attention to the heart's desire of gamers everywhere. Plenty of fantastic games we...

Why I think Nintendo beat Microsoft at E3

811d ago ... Everybody has shown their hands. E3 2013 had a lot of hopes for the industry. Who delivered? Who had the worst of the three? I will say, and many others would most definitely agree, Sony stole the show. Not only because of how many huge mistakes Microsoft have made, but because they handled their hardware showing the best of the three. Its no secret that anybody besides a fool would argue again...

PS-Plus Mandatory to Play Online on PS4

812d ago ... The Sony press conference at E3 yesterday can be called a huge success. They showcased some amazing games coming to PS4 in its first year and sent an important signal to the industry: Sony speaks out against restrictive DRM and used game policies. It seemed to be a good day for gamers, but there was a major downside that was addressed only passively. Online gaming on PS4 requires a PS+ subscrip...

Xbox Live Hacked by Anonymous?

869d ago ... An article from yesterday raised the idea that Xbox Live may have been hacked by Anonymous in retaliation for the rumours suggesting Microsoft's next console will be always-online. N4G mods have since changed the title and source, but you can see the comments do not reflect what the current title suggests.
