Amazon Fire TV: It's not a Gaming Console

202d ago ... Wanted to put this out there since I'm seeing more than a few submissions that seem to label Amazon's latest streaming device as a gaming console. Now, while the device does allow one to play games, it is not what we would categorize as a gaming console. Its primary goal, much like a PC, a smart phone, or a tablet, is not to play games. Sure, you can game on it, but that's not enough to be...

ID@Xbox: Smart Business?

316d ago ... I wanted to write this blog to cover pretty much what I've been saying in a few other areas on the Web. So, what are we talking about? Microsoft has the new ID@Xbox program. It allows, currently, known Indie developers to self-publish on the XBO platform and allows them to utilize their regular XBO as developer kits. While currently limited to those who are vetted by Microsoft, eventually...

Thoughts on Xbox One

517d ago ... Let me forgo rehashing everything we know and instead focus on my opinion on the decision being made with Xbox One. If you don't know about the items discussed herein, you only need to check the home page for about 15 minutes and you will be fully caught up. Before I go into each item one by one, let me get this out of the way: The Xbox Reveal Event, while advertised in part towards the ga...

An Opinion That Doesn't Matter: Thoughts On E3

865d ago ... [The sad lead-in to this writing: For some reason, I have to write that this is very much a tongue-in-cheek article. Because some people wouldn’t have gotten it by the fourth or umpteenth paragraph, I guess.] Is it done? Are we safe? *dons pointy hat* Is it safe?!?! E3, for all intents and purposes, is done. For most people, it was done two days ago. For journalists, it won't be ove...

MacGuffin's Curse: Head-Scratching Puzzles, Story Driven Tail Wagging

924d ago ... What do you give an out of work magician whose lady has left him while living in a town that monitors everything people do with camera equipped trees? Most would say a ticket to somewhere else, perhaps even a job on a Cruise Ship. Not so for the ladies and gents over at Brawsome, who decided that the best thing was to curse him with the ability to always know that the wet dog smell is likely...

What I Learned From the Mass Effect 3 Demo (PC)

979d ago ... Let's just get into this. 1. Skills and their tiers ME3 moves from ME2's 4 tiered power choices to a 6 tiered power choice. Much like ME2, you will select one of two paths at tier 4 and will do the same thing at tiers 5 and 6. You are not restricted to one path at tier 4, but can select either option at tiers 5 and 6 like you did at 4. Like ME2, each tier costs it's tier in upgrade poi...

War of the Immortals First Impressions

1012d ago ... Besides bringing us the joy of Torchlight, Perfect World has been making a strong presence for themselves with their F2P MMOs, including their latest, War of the Immortals. What looks to be a spiritual successor to Battle of the Immortals, which is still very active, War expands on the former game with new classes and content. Having never played the former game, only knowing it through some...

ME3 Multiplayer Brings up a New Issue

1105d ago ... So, we've all heard by now, right? Mass Effect 3 will have multiplayer! (it's okay, I'll wait for you to all calm down) I think most of us knew this was coming. From the not so coy "oh, we're not commenting at this time on multiplayer" at E3 to the decision to push it back more than a few months from its original release date. Now that it's here, all we have to do is just see where it go...

Microsoft E3 - or "Is motion gaming making me cry?"

1233d ago ... So, it's day zero (technically E3 doesn't start until Tuesday, but, hey, some people wanted to get their news out there before everyone else one year and now it starts on Monday) and Microsoft was up with what has become their fairly typical E3 Press Conference. So, what did we get out of it? But, more importantly, what did _I_ get out of it? Author's note: This is all my opinion. YMMV...

The Phrase Heard Around the Web

1269d ago ... Yes, this is a blog post about the PSN outage. If you don't want to read anymore about this, please press your back button or click a link on N4G.com to somewhere else. What I will be addressing in this article, though, is the effect that a single statement has on the Internet. And that statement is: - "77 million credit cards and personal information was stolen from Sony" - No...

Operation Boycott Sony? Really?

1339d ago ... So, found this on the the, supposed, new blog of our favorite hacker, GeoHot. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-WU1zd4CPT4Q/TWBKrBauwYI/AAAAAAAAAeQ/TCnKRY47vFc/s1600/boycottsony.png I wanted to address a few things here, specifically each of the "Why?" items. So, without much fanfare, here we go. === Quoted: "Sony continually removes features from the Playstation 3 hardware that were a maj...

Mass Effect 3: Suggestions to Improve Shepard's Future

1352d ago ... Mass Effect has become a great success for BioWare. Though, they are no stranger to similar or greater success with the Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. The biggest difference being that this time it's an IP over which BioWare has full control. The first Mass Effect was a sci-fi RPG fest, placing the player into the role of Commander Shepard fo...

Sony Shows Signs of Coke Ad Deal

1406d ago ... And it's about time. At least if the latest Sony Bluetooth 2.0 ad is to believed. Watch it below and note the obvious product placement for Coca-cola.

Beating Others to N4G, No Matter What It Takes

1412d ago ... I've noticed this problem for a while, and I'm going to use the latest offender of this action as an example in this blog. Too many sites rely upon N4G to get the hits they desire. They rely upon it so much that they post irrelevant news articles that contain nothing new but are written as if it should be treated as an opinion piece when the news we read the day before contains all of the s...

A Quick Review of the Uncharted 3 Teaser

1412d ago ... [Author's note: Of course, by the time this blog gets approved, most of the below information will be common knowledge. I hope someone enjoys the information below.] I'm sure most of us here are pretty giddy with the latest news on Uncharted 3 being announced and a video expected at the VGAs. If you're like me, you remember the breathtaking experience of Naughty Dog's demo of Uncharted 2 a...

Sony, Don't Ever Do This Again

1463d ago ... So, I have been playing some Sports Champions. The games aren't bad, but some can be fairly frustrating. Some of them definitely take a lot of training to master, but they don't have modes that allow you to just train, only modes to compete with all the annoying load screens. Anyway, I played a bit of Fallout: New Vegas today and went through the trophies for that game. Seeing as I hadn't...

Hulu+ PS3 Preview

1548d ago ... So, I plopped down my $9.99 and decided to check out what you get with the Hulu+ service. As we already know, you get a supposedly expanded movie and TV show delivery service that will always be there, will always cost $9.99 a month, and will still require you to sit through one or two 30 second ads every 7-15 minutes. So, what else can you expect? 1. Does the service include all the ty...
