Personal Identity And Gaming

2d ago ... This blog is one that asks you a simple question. When playing games, do you identify yourself as the character you play, or do you simply take on the role of the character you are playing with all of their own unique traits and characteristics? To understand more of what I'm talking about, it would do you some good to watch these 2 videos that reference a study that states that most gamers...

Ubisoft And Embargoes

20d ago ... Had a different, and totally reactionary blog I was going to post but changed my mind and couldn't delete it, so I'm changing it. I'm sure you've all heard of what Ubisoft is doing with The Crew and not allowing any reviews until launch. It follows what they've been doing with their games for awhile now and is completely wrong. I'm a fan of the Assassin's Creed series, always have been an...

Celebgate and Gamergate: A New Culture War

30d ago ... Do you know what happens when you listen to people who say "GEEZ, you all need to stop talking about people like Anita Sarkeesian and stop giving her attention. They'll just go away and this will all be over if you do"? You get this http://blogjob.com/oneangrygamer/2014/11/gamergate-interest-groups-want-to-take-online-harassment-to-senate/ “Celebgate and Gamergate: A New Culture War.”...

Digital Market Offerings On Consoles Is A Failure

82d ago ... I'm going to start this blog off by saying F.U. Sony. Yep, you read that right. A big F.U. to Sony. I bet you're wondering why I, whom everyone insists is a huge Sony fanboy on this site, would say such a think right? Well the answer is because Shadow of Mordor is $70 here in Canada, and that's everywhere. Now I have known that Sony increased game prices in Canada awhile back, but up unti...

Play How You Like And I'll Do The Same

86d ago ... I can't believe that this needs to be said but apparently it does. How you choose to play a game is completely irrelevant to everyone but you. The rules you set up for yourself in playing any game are only your rules, they are no one else's, and you have no right to preach the "correct" way to play any game to anyone else. Today I'm talking about the fanboys who complain about people who use...

ID@Xbox And The Indie Games Conundrum

101d 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...

Gaming Culture Suffers From Institutionalized Amnesia

105d ago ... First Scenario: The year is 198X, you're a young boy or girl who's come to know video games and love what you've experienced. You have friends that have a Nintendo Entertainment System just like you and every day after school, and on the weekends, you try to convince your parents to let you play some video games, or to go over to your friends house so you can play them there. You finished your...

Dear Luke Plunkett: Don't Pretend You Aren't A Part Of The Problem

113d ago ... Gaming journalism sites are still, quite rightly, reeling over the backlash they've received over the whole 5 Guys Quinnspiracy scandal that occurred two weeks ago. Kotaku is at the forefront of this hate due to 2 reasons. 1. One of their writers is directly involved and has, seemingly, not received any formal reprimand for potentially mixing business with, I guess, pleasure. Not even an assura...

How Oppression Quest Perfectly Sums Up Corruption And Nepotism In Gaming Journalism

117d ago ... Unless you've lived in a cave on Mars, with your eyes shut and your fingers in your ears, then I'm sure you've heard of the Quinnspiracy, a.k.a. Five Guys Burgers and Fries, a.k.a. Who Won't Zoe Quinn Sleep With To Get Ahead. But just in case you still haven't, there's a text adventure game for you that perfectly sums up the situation, and even provides some shocking detail to just how far a...

This Blog Posted Exclusively On N4G

126d ago ... Ladies and Gentlemen, I have an exciting announcement to make. Thanks to years of support from my partners here at N4G, the success that that partnership has brought both myself and everyone on the site, I'm proud to announce that the proceeding blog will be posted exclusively on N4G.com. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T2l15bKMZk Yeah, no one cares. The topic of exclusive content just k...

Rest In Peace Robin Williams.

131d ago ... I know this isn't the kind of thing one would normally talk about on a gaming news site, or if they would it'd be more appropriate in the forums; but I can't log into the forums and I think it's appropriate to talk about here considering just who I am about to talk about. In case any of you haven't heard, Robin Williams was found dead today. The current working theory is that he committed su...

Misrepresenting While Female Part 3

153d ago ... Alright, so this is Part 3 of my blog series examining the "Internetting While Female" panel at the GaymerX2 convention. Part 1: http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/dragonknight/528328 Part 2: http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/dragonknight/528339 Video being discussed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0qxtKz2vZw At the end I'll post yet another reward video for your pa...

Misrepresenting While Female Part 2

154d ago ... Hello everyone, this is Part 2 of my blog series on the GaymerX2 panel titled "Internetting While Female." You can find all of the pertinent information about the subject material in part 1 here. http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/dragonknight/528328 I'll be posting another "reward" video at the end that has nothing to do with the blog but is a kind of thanks for your patience. Without further...

Misrepresenting While Female Part 1

155d ago ... This blog is about a week late, but to my defense I had just found out about this particular panel and so that's why I'm now going to be discussing it. A week ago the GaymerX2 convention had a panel discussion titled "Internetting While Female." The focus of this blog will be to dissect what is wrong about everything being discussed in the panel. I'm going to start by linking 2 videos pertin...

The Virtues Of Assassin's Creed 3

167d ago ... There are times in my life where I have kind of a "gaming rut;" an extended period of time where there is either nothing new or current that interests me, or I simply do not have the finances to purchase what does. In these moments I take to going back and playing older games. Sometimes I age myself and go way back to play NES to PS1 games; still other times I don't go so far and I will play PS...

International Exclusionary Sports Federation: The Hearthstone Incident

171d ago ... Hell has officially frozen over. I am going to write a blog post that could be seen as defending a position akin to the feminist one, though only just barely. So for those of you that don't know, there is an organization known as the International e-Sports Federation dedicated to video game tournaments designed to promote competitive gaming as a legitimate sport. For 6 years now it has held...

Regulated Development By Committee Is Closer Than You Think

187d ago ... It's late at night and I should be asleep, but I just finished watching a 3 hour rebuttal to the latest Anita Sarkeesian video and something struck my mind. It inspired me to write this blog which will partially be about Anita's new video, but mostly about current events in game development and where it's headed. For starters, if you have confidence in your mental stamina, and stability, sit th...

It Just Never Ends: An Ubisoft Tale

190d ago ... I didn't want to do a blog on this. I was sitting in front of my laptop when this B.S. first came out saying to myself "this is just something that will never end, don't do a blog on it, don't, just don't. There's only been about 20 different sites talking about it and getting so much wrong, don't bother." Then after 2 days of not really hearing much, Eurogamer comes out with its contribution t...

My Views On E3 2014

194d ago ... E3 2014's press conferences have literally just ended, and I'm going to go right into what I thought about the pressers individually, and the event as a whole. I watched every conference there was, and I'm just going to start at the beginning. Microsoft: ============== They did an excellent job, Phil Spencer especially. Watching the conference, I saw on Twitter and the chat window that pe...

Games Journalists vs. The Society of Professional Journalists

199d ago ... I watched an interesting video on youtube that linked to a tweet made by Polygon's Brian Crecente, which you can read here. https://twitter.com/crecenteb/status/473101155481169920 So, like the video that showed me this tweet, I decided to take my own stab at this topic and rate how much games journalism follows this code, if at all. The code can be found here. http://www.spj.org/eth...
