1. EA Guest Stars On The HipHopGamerShow 2. Sports Games Making Use Of Natal And Sony's Gem 3. The Mark Of Kri Returns? 4. Game Review - Wanted: Weapons Of Fate (7.5 out of 10) Decent Game
Someone took the advice of not using Sony in the title or 'much' flaimbait. Now so long as this article doesn't get ghost approves it will be a good article one I'll approve. I also agree with the Wanted score from the demo is felt mediocore but not broken.
The idiot on a stick returns.
whats a sunday without hiphopgamer?
A good sunday.
Did we play the same Army of Two? That demo for the 40th Day was TERRIBLE. If Gears EVER picked up on any of Army of Two's features then that would be the day I stopped playing Gears. Cover system isnt even a cover system, aiming is terrible, weapon customization is cool but dunno if that would fit for Gears as it'd be kind of pointless, co-op is already there, "crab running" is already there, drop-in-drop-out co-op doesn't work becuase if someone quits or disconnects then the game is over. Blah, get out of here. Army of Two was fun but the 40th Day is just terrible.
I can't stop agreeing with you 100% on everything.
Some disconnected on my Army of two game so I had to play and thus I had to rewatch the 5 minute cutscene that sucks.
How can a game "Revolutionize" Gameplay by "copying" another game's features?!! The logic behind this is way out of my league, someone please explain.
I love how people come in here to criticize HHG, yet the only thing they are doing is helping him by getting him more hits lol.
sometimes i wonder if he was dropped on the head as a youth
Bubbles...I enjoy an individual who shares my logic. @Government Cheese From my understanding, he only gets hits if you go to his website...and those around N4G know that he usually gives you enough in his titles where you don't have to watch his videos. I personally have yet to go to his website or watch any of his videos, I just let the madness unfold before me. That's not to say his videos are bad, its just that it is not that serious to me that I need to watch a video of what often times is speculation and over the top opinions....I'll wait for other outlets to confirm the material.
"yet the only thing they are doing is helping him by getting him more hits lol." actually as long as they don't click the source link he doesn't get a hit. Now if his ego is fed with how many degrees his n4g article gets then...that's pretty sad. I'm actually pretty positive this is the case though. I usually browse the comments section to his articles for entertainment but have only ever went to his site once.
But if Army of Two is already using those features how can Gears 3 REVOLUTIONAIE using something that was already used?
The more you click and comment here, the higher his degrees get and the more popular HIPHOPGAMER becomes on N4G. Since N4G is a very popular site amongst the gaming industry, the more popular HHG is here, the more chance and likelihood people will click and visit http://hiphopgamershow.ning... In essence, your dislike of HHG, even at this very moment, has helped catapult HIPHOPGAMER and his show to internet stardom. This is why he is literally an internet celebrity. Like him or not, he continues to accelerate and make a name for himself and his site in spite of hardships and trials...as a man, I honor that.... and that is what America is truly about.
Gears 2 was a disappointment. they need to fix a lot of issues.
I honestly didnt think Army of Two could get any worse, but it has. How could they seriously take a step backward. Not many liked the first one, but I enjoyed playing it coop with a buddy. If Gears took ideas from Army of Two, I'd most definitely not pick up the next iteration. HHG, you sir are the worst. I think the reason most people visit these comments is because they're completely baffled at how you come up with this trash.
I lol'd at the part where: EA Guy: You can create a mask and then upload it to your character and you can see it as you play the game. HHG: Thats is Craaazy right there, like who thought of that? EA Guy: (pauses) ..uhh we all did.
I guest the gamer show wasn't working out. If you are going to use army of two to show how to improve Gears, you need to get some more sleep, then come back and re-read your headline. I have no desire to click on the like to hear how AOT can improve Gears. It sounds ........ what's the word ......... Stupid!
hiphopgamer is the bomb. While every so called "credible gaming media sites" are taking a break for two weeks not even playing games, HHG is on every Sunday, rain, sleet , or snow staying true to his formula. Its getting to the point where I dont trust anybody but him when it comes to reviews and just overall opinion about games. BTW, Army of Two is better then gears. Way better. The first one was just too short.
Army of Two sucked so uhh yeah.
This guy playing games over the last 2 weeks while others are taking a break has nothing to do with staying true to anything. It just means he's got $#*T to do and is a sad 30 something' dude with nothing better to do than sit in front of a shoddy camera and exploit himself for monetary gain. As for Army Of Two being better than Gears; it could be. I never played them. If Gears wants to improve I'm sure Epic will look deeper into their own development teams skills and talents than others, though. Just my two cents.
Then just stop coming to his articles. If his articles never get above 40 degrees, they never make it to the front page, and therefore his actual site traffic would decline dramatically..
WTF Gears Revolutionize TPS with it's gameplay and cover system just like Halo Revolutionize FPS "Gears 3 Needs Army Of Two Features To Revolutionize Gameplay" WTF lololololololololololololololo l
When is n4g going to ban this idiotic site. Seriously, you are losing your credibility n4g.
Here is the thing that you are not factoring in...just because his article increase in degrees, that does not necessarily translate into more people clicking on his website. As I said, I have yet to go to his website...I can get all the information I need from his videos from the first couple of posts.....and you can tell from others post, that they do the same thing. That's the value of summaries...I can determine whether or not I need to clink the link to find out more...and as I stated, his titles speak a mouthful...to the point where I do not need to click that link. Ohhh, and you will find no where that I said I dislike him....his grind is not taking away from my life, so I have no reason to dislike him...especially since I have the choice on whether or not I invite him into my world. "and that is what America is truly about. " Haha, are you serious?
All this attention given to someone people claim to hate. You guy just make yourselves look hypocritical buy giving Hiphop so much attention telling people not to give him attention. You guys are always good for a laugh.
Is this title a sign of things to come in 2010? Less flame bait??
Or an off day. I theory is that next week the title will be 'Sony goes bust in my opinion and stops selling PS3 in my opinion... also the PS3 is fail and the Wii is the graphics king.' That would get more hits than the Megan Fox play with you article(On MW2).
HAHAHAHAHA too funny!! "Uncharted2 coming to the 360 because Microsoft told me" "Halo Reach will see 800 Million copies day 1, leaves Sony and Nintendo scratching their heads" "Game Review: Army of Two: 40th Day 27/10 EXCELLENT GAME (EA was on my show today)
Hiphop stop making things up about Natal or the Sony Gem. If you don't have some decent news for your viewers then just move on to the game review or gamers in the street. You also need to be more professional on interviews e.g. developers Im not a hater, just giving good advise Peace
HHG, when will you review Bayonetta? Im getting it on Tuesday, but I wanna hear your opinion on it. Good show as usual.
Lol. I can't take him seriously.
Is this a joke? “Gears 3 Needs Army Of Two Features To Revolutionize Gameplay” Seriously? I mean crystal ball as to knowing what Gears 3 IS going to offer. Your basing this on how much info about Gears 3? Also, why would I want Gears 3 to play like Army of Two if that game already provides that type of gameplay? So you claim that a successful franchise compared to a not so successful franchise needs to add features to an existing gameplay that works on its own? Is it a conicidence your trying to put shine on Army of Two’s gameplay as you just did an interview with somebody from EA?
Army of Two as far as non-hyped shooters go I thought Army of Two brought a unique co-op experience that felt like gears in a way that I agree w/ HHG that if gears had some of those things Army Of Two has then it would seperate it from being called "just another gears". Also anyone who ACTUALLY played the first 1 especially if you played it with someone you know thats its a really fun game, but short.... not AAA material but if u wanted to rent a game to have fun w/ a friend or something Army of Two is it.
How the hell does copying another games features revolutionizes a game???? THIS GUY IS ON CRACK!!!!
Are these true or what... ?
the army of two have some good ideas, if gears can implement some of that ideas, why not?
HHG! Good show like always!
"CliffyB NEEDS the PS3 To Revolutionize Gears 3" ;-D And 'NO' ChatBots&ModBots i don't want 'Gears 3' on PS3 anyway!!!... The PS3 has enough 'AAA' Games to keep me HAPPY!!!;)
did u just admit gears is a AAA game!? wow.a stark admission for such a ps3 fanboy is surely a first for N4G
great the Rick Roll Of N4G Sunday Returns...
you know what this site is called news4gamers and most of on here are don't even like games yo it's crazy. 1. Army of two the 40th day is hot and what your playing is a demo it's not done yet but the things you can do in that game if Cliffy B. announced that Gears 3 would have some features that's similiar to those you guys would go crazy. 2. Army of two the 40th day you can pretend to surrender while your partner goes around and flanks or just throw a bomb and kills the enemies imagine being surrounded by locusts and your outnumbered and marcus pheonix comes around and does something incredible to save you moments like that would make gears way more epic in terms of gameplay 3. the first army of two was a good game as well did you guys even play it and i mean seriously give it time and really play it 4. what makes a game revolutionary is when they bring something new to a franchise that takes the game to a new level that's why splinter cell is revolutionary because of the new things they are doing. Now look at gears 1 and gears 2 the jump in terms of gameplay was good but nothing major with those type of features even if it is coming from another game so what it will add so much more than just the stop and pop gameplay we're use too. 5. Gears 1 made the cover system for 3rd person shooting games revolutionary now for Gears 3 they need to do something else just as big and those army of two features would really do the trick believe it or not but we'll see soon how these things turn out, and another message for the haters see me at E3 oh yeah i forgot you guys are a bunch of keyboard gangstas where's ya heart at homey get ya money up and come see in person in L.A. this year. anyway peace
Have wrote it better
Well excuse us for our malcontent "O great one" of your glorious videos and inspiring titles. You mean to tell me and everyone here that the criticism you get is somehow reflective of a dislike for video games. O...k. Believe this. If people get as far as typing in this site address, filling out a member account...they like video games. There is no inaccuracy to that assumption. 1. Gears of war has plenty going for it. A story line that is evolving and game play that is solid. As far as gears of war 3 I am not going to play the predict game with something that hasn't leaked 10 cents worth of info. And WTF do you expect to be changed when 40th day releases 9 days from now! I lol'ed reading that. Or did you not know the release day when you pooted out that statement..."Army of two the 40th day is hot and what your playing is a demo it's not done yet." 2. Whoopty-doo you can surrender to the A.I. And when exactly does that get old. Some features can be overused to the point of boredom. And in the demo it doesn't always work given the crappy control. No I don't want to even try to surrender to the locusts. I have seen like many what the level of mercy they offer in a curb stomp as I lay helpless bleeding out. Or did you forget they take advantage of the weak and helpless? 3. Yes I played and achieved 700 gamer score which my xbox-live account proves and yours does not. And if you played it on the 360 your account certainly does not show it. So I can only assume you played it on the ps3. But can you prove that? Might want to talk about psn getting a progress report tied to gamers accounts so they can be freely viewed online by anyone. Like Microsoft conveniently, sufficiently, and easily provides. 4. I haven't seen anything in the army of two franchise that makes it revolutionary. The confined space...not revolutionary, the restrictive path options...nope. The enemy popping out of anywhere...no. And army of two plays the same every time you play it. And 40th day graphics are last gen. Typical EA cutting corners, cost, and options hoping to snare gamers ill advised and/or desperate for a third person shooter. I learned my lesson with army of two. And I am sure I am not the only one. You must like putting your hand in the flame. 5. With progressive development anything is supposed to be made better. 2009 dodge charger is better than a 2007 dodge charger. Iphone 3g say hello to iphone 4g. What do you expect...epic to downgrade gameplay. The very reason we come HERE is to find out what has been enhanced in our future games. We all expect something to evolve. And if it doesn't the wallets cast their votes. It is the nature of anything being sold to consumers. Improvement brings more customers. Big no s%$it on that one. 6. I would love to forgo my responsibilities to my kids, an aviation career and an intern selection to be a pilot for UPS just to visit e3 this year. However, I don't see anyone (gamers) here is going to waste a trip in L.A. to play grab ass with you. And with all that sweet gaming goodness casting a shadow over anything you can provide why would they? I personally never heard of you until a year ago. I doubt even the consistent dedicated kids you enlisted to approve your articles every single Sunday would even go visit you. (yeah I noticed that gangsta.)
"you know what this site is called news4gamers and most of on here are don't even like games yo it's crazy. " .. wha? I admit, I can read/pass broken english, but even this was a mensa challenge. "LOL Now that was funny homey the 10 o' clock news hell yeah that's gangsta man" Way to give up the posturing, or what was there. I can understand your desire to 'grind the industry', but come on man - lately it's as if you're not even trying. I even had to reread your posts to make sure it was really you tripping over yourself. If this open site is the only one that posts your shtick, then I am sorry for you, my friend.
I haven't posted in awhile but this is to funny! people going all out over a choice of words. I guess UC2 isn't revolutionary seeing as its only gears and tomb raider. guess bioshock and borderlands aren't either becuz they added rpg elements
"Game Review - Wanted: Weapons Of Fate (7.5 out of 10) Decent Game" REALLY? That game is 3 hours long and you grant it a 7.5?
I bet he only played the demo. Correction, the first 3 minutes of the demo. I played through the whole thing. It took me 4 hours and it was extremely generic and boring.
oh jesus christ why he still doing that, i mean most of the ppl here laugh at him and its obvious that he dont know what he's talking about most of the time. Im 100% sure a 6years old girl could probably beat him on a conversation about gaming.
next week it'll be poppin again.
LOL you guys made HHG cry, you seen that long as hell post he made? damn you guys are cold blooded.
About the only thing Gears needs from Army of two is the online component working from the time it is released. But coming from Epic with Gears of War I doubt online will work for the first 3-4 weeks.
you guys hating on HHG are just a bunch of jealous punks wishin it was you and not him in the spotlight. Keep it up hhg. The gaming media would be a scary place without you there to keep the fake media types in check.
Just replying to the title here: HELL NO. Disclaimer all IMO: Army of Two epically sucked. Everything about that game was horrid. I had a bud come over to play the demo with me, and we did not have fun with it at all. In fact it was more of a chore to play the demo. If anything, Gears 3 can use some new gameplay elements of sorts, but not what Army of Two offers.
have a started out as an exclusive PS3 title. Now it will always be garbage because it is on an underpowered last gen system. Gears of War could have been great- but I am sure epic would have screwed it up because they are not sophisticated or good enough to manage the power of the PS3.If a game is not exclusive to the PS3 then it does not matter. It will look like crap. LOOK AT UNCHARTED 2- JUST LOOK at the most advanced graphics ever, and then tell me anything comes close.Gears of war will be a disaster just like the first 2. The truth. Gears is not cake.
Why don't you take a good look at CryEngine 3 and tell me what's the most advanced graphics ever? ;)
all you do is steal articles from PopStar Player He was the first to report SuperStreetfighter 4 would be made by Capcom He also was the first to break news that the new character in gow3 was named Kratos stop being a hater and give credit where its due
Honestly despite his sometime sensational titles, the man has good insight into the video game industry. Other than a few user on N4G who are in the industry as well, none of you can say the same. All I read are armchair analysts trying to sound "cool and edgy" by hating on the man. Grow up. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and HHG is no different. If you don't like his show, then why bother showing your crappy attitude here? @HHG Hey man good show as always, I had the time to listen to the Games on Smash podcast you guest starred in and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Keep on keeping on and I'm looking forward to Heavy Rain after what you said.
It's the same EVERY Sunday! A throng of HHG haters comes on and bashes HHG and most of them don't even bother to watch the vid to see if he is actually making some comments of substance. They just read the article title and blast away. It's a shame, because most of the time he at least has an interview that IS newsworthy! Sure, there is speculation on his part at times. But, don't IGN and gamespot do the same things in written form? They want him to divulge his sources. However, if he is truly getting insider info...he can't do THAT for fear that the source could lose his or her JOB! I just think that N4G needs to chill out on the judgment...UNLESS you are running a site or blog and can get the access to the industry that he has.
Well in N4G's defense. When do you get to a point where you really need to sit and think about your material when about 90% of the posters on N4G throw in negative feedback for HHG. at 50% sure okay some people will agree some people will flame, fine whatever at least you have a reader base...But when nearly ALL the comments are insults or plain negative feedback... It really does say something about this guy.
It's one of few things that fanboys from all camps agree on.
That it has just become the "thing to do"!?! Just like the "fanboy" craze, hating of HHG and Pachter have become a following of sorts. I get that it is fun to jump in and poke fun of some of the things that HHG says. I am just saying that whether you like it or not...the guy has some connections. He gets some great interviews and some information that can be considered "insider" info. I understand that HHG is generally panned by N4G. However, I don't understand the NEED for that kind of hate. He is ONE MAN, with a set of opinions, some facts, some reflections, some speculations, and some insight. Besides the hip hop slant, he is no different than anyone else...except he is hated on. Anyway, to each his own...you can continue to hate...and I will support when he is good, be critical when he is bad...and just game!!!
I wish...., I wish..., I wish upon a star that my girl would even touch my game systems. I am not gansta, thug nor criminal. But her azz will be on the 10 o'clock news that night.
LOL Now that was funny homey the 10 o' clock news hell yeah that's gangsta man
the best way epic could "Revolutionize Gameplay" in gears3. they need to have more then eight enemies on the screen at one time in the SP with the AI of FEAR! it would be nice if the graphics would not popin a minute after starting the level. lol i am not buying another gears game until they bring "quality" to the series that i find interesting... i am just being honest... i liked army of two demo. it seemed better then the last one. i try to support games(dev) that push the gaming industry forwarder or try to improve on the last game. this why i will never support establish dev that push out SSALY "same $hiet as last year" i been listening into alot of websites that brokedown natal. i can not see natal with online support. it seems like it will be laggy. i drink while playing most games and my voice will change. lol i calling out zone and natal hear man... lol sony gem seems to be the best bet to work perfectly online and offline. natal seems to be offline only and that gets boring after a while. this is why i play online after beat the the sp. good show.
Did you at least play the first ACT in gears of war 2? If so then how did you miss 100's of enemies pouring out of the ground which you can shoot rushing you as you rode on derrick transports.
all of you guys need to stfu we get it you dont like his site and think he is stupid its been said several times. im sure uve said it b4 on his previous posts. and im sure ull say the same thing next week, after awhile you should consider not commenting.
Or perhaps HHG should stop posting? If all of these comments don't serve as a wake-up call I don't know what will.
Not everything here is going to be said to you or HHG liking. Criticism is the by-product of the gaming industry just as much as praise. You don't like that reality...then maybe you should STOP reading comments.
am i missing something but how can u revolutionize gameplay if u copy it from another game. im confused
