Sony's PlayStation Network: Food for Thought

259d ago ... This is no complaint, rather, food for thought. It's rather interesting that at one point, Sony and PlayStation gamers alike prided themselves in the free online gaming provided with the launch of the PS3. The earlier half of the departing generation was a time when fans of the console would point out the benefits of their console by stating that the online component was free, and how the co...

Where's My Spectator Mode?

1058d ago ... We all like challenge. Most of us who like challenge like competition. Those of us who like competition are likely to enjoy watching two sides go at it. So when you combine that with the love of video games, you get a very enjoyable and even a guide to those who don't find themselves doing well in a particular game. With what I feel is such a wonderful option to give gamers, why isn't it everyw...

Overcoming the Loud Minority

1065d ago ... A new game comes out. You love it. You play it everyday and sink an embarrassing number of hours into the multiplayer. A week later, you find out said game has been "patched" and now is nowhere near as good as it used to be. Why would this happen? What was wrong with it? Probably nothing. But that doesn't matter. While you were busy having fun with your new game/beta, someone else was squealing...

Are Publishers Getting Out of Touch?

1067d ago ... Now more than ever, gamers are getting a little wiser. You may argue against that, but that's really besides the point. We're critical, we whine, and we "boycott" (lulz). We entered the information age a while back and the effects are still strong. Nothing escapes our twitchy internet-surfing fingers. Our voices can easily be heard for the juggernauts that fuel our favorite pastime. So why don'...

Does RAGE Really Need Deathmatch?

1068d ago ... It has been stated several times that id Software's upcoming RAGE will not feature the traditional Deathmatch (DM) and Capture the Flag (CTF) modes normally expected out of an FPS. There have been gamers, most of which we could assume are id-faithful, have reacted somewhat negatively or shocked. But should they be? Apparently, id felt that the co-op and vehicular multiplayer works much better...

Are PC Gamers Stuck-up?

1071d ago ... I'm sure plenty of you who will click on this blog have already decided to flame me or are currently thinking of smart responses. That's okay, but let's talk. Now, I'm not one to call people out on every mistake (too often), but some gamers I'll just never understand, but perhaps that's a good thing. If I did, I might as well not call myself a gamer anymore. I recently read an article that EA...

Is Uncharted 2 Multiplayer a Joke?

1075d ago ... I've recently gotten back into Uncharted 2 multiplayer. Well, I tried anyway. You see, after playing Uncharted 3's beta, I've concluded that the predecessor was so flawed, I don't see how I didn't see it for what it was prior. Now before anyone discredits me, I consider myself an UC2 multiplayer vet. I normally do very well in my matches (at the top of the scoreboard most times) and have almos...

The Talk Blocker

1100d ago ... You may all think that one of the worst problems of this website is the bubble system. "Where are my bubbles?" "I didn't do anything wrong!" "The system DEFINITELY needs to go." But I feel that there is a problem just as bad, if not worse, than the bubble system. The Agree/Disagree system. How many times have you received random and anonymous disagrees for something that didn't even make sen...

What's with Uncharted 3's Co-op?

1103d ago ... I'm sure most of you reading this have already downloaded and played a fair amount of Uncharted 3 multiplayer. Now, as someone who has spent more time in UC2's co-op than in the competitive modes, I think I can say that I won't be playing it or developing an addiction as I did with its predecessor. You may ask why I say that, and here it is: it's too hard... but it's too easy. "What?" The pr...

Learn Your Lesson Guerilla Games?

1201d ago ... There was recently an article posted here on N4G that Killzone 3 has been selling less than what Killzone 2 (KZ2) did around its launch date ( http://n4g.com/news/729292/killzone-3-sales-1-million/com). While the validity of the exact numbers can be disputed at this point, the general statement is likely true. So this is where the main point of my blog comes in, but first a little backg...
