STREET FIGHTER V_20160216121629

Before we get down to the nitty gritty of the review we wanna take this opportunity to explain the N4L Gaming review system, truth is you guys can go get scores from the big name gaming sites. So we plan on delivering no BS, no paid for reviews that will be summed up with our opinion on if you should Buy it, Rent it, or Skip it. Now without further ado

Oh Street Fighter V, you have such good intentions, honestly you do. I can tell Capcom wants this game to be THE end all be all 2D fighter of this console generation. Unfortunately in its present state you are missing a few key elements in living up to that moniker.  Continue reading

N4L Gaming throw back – Why Halo 3 ODST could be the most definitive Halo Experience

With the recent release of Halo 5 we at N4L Gaming thought it was a good time to look upon the good ol days and reminisce about the series. The following piece is written by Anthony Fuentes and his thoughts on this why ODST could very well be THE definitive halo experience.

One day my nephew, a bright boy of age 8, saved enough money to buy two 5 dollar games from GameStop’s bargain bin and a toy. Initially, he was most excited about the toy (Minecraft figure, because 8) but he also felt he got a good deal with the bargain games. One immediate choice was Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, because he loves scaling virtual buildings as well as murdering those poor CPU guards in creative ways (he really loved Rogue for the ability to kill citizens). The other: Halo ODST. His reasoning was less rooted in past experiences with the franchise but rather an 8 year old’s insatiable need to shoot things and do it fast. He comes from the school of Call of Duty and figured the experience would be similar: twitch reflex shooting and a linear, Michael Bay like campaign. His previous experience with Halo was 4 so he didn’t have a reason to really think otherwise. When he finally jumped into the single player portion, having exhausted the poor Minecraft Creeper, something strange happened. Continue reading
