N+

02-27-2008

If you haven't played the original N, then that's great. Well, it's not great, since you've essentially missed one of the greatest flash games ever created, but it's great that you'll be able to go into N+, the game's update...

Nail'd

11-30-2010

Every game these days needs its gimmick.   If you had to point to Nail’d’s, it would be that the game is fast. Really, really, really fast. Really.

Namco Museum Megamix

11-18-2010

Let it not be said that Namco Bandai is afraid of a re-release. Namco Museum Megamix isn't just a re-release -- it's a re-release of a compilation of re-releases! An updated version of Namco Museum Remix, which was first rele...

Naruto Powerful Shippuden

03-12-2013

Naruto fighting games tend to follow a specific formula. The console versions of the Shippuden series have been some of the best fighting games in the franchise, but the content hasn't really been super fresh, as it follows t...

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2

11-10-2010

Most games based on a licensed property are terrible. It's a sad truth of the gaming world, and many players have accepted this as a foregone conclusion. Licensed games are bad until proven good. Merely tolerable licensed ...

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3

03-21-2013

It's a good day for Naruto fans, fans of PC fighting games, and fans of "enhanced edition" rereleases. Namco Bandai has just announced that its Ultimate Ninja Storm series will be making a PC platform deb...

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations

05-03-2012

The Naruto series of games is another in a long line of fighting titles based on a popular anime series. What seems to set this series apart from the others, however, is its focus on a pick-up-and-play attitude. While many ga...

Natural Doctrine

10-06-2014

Natural Doctrine is a strategy role-playing game with a sadistic side. It's a brutal and uncompromising experience, one keen on taxing players and pushing them to their limits with its intense difficulty. The architects behin...

Natural Selection 2

11-13-2012

I completely and utterly missed out on Natural Selection back in the day and although I have only ever played its follow-up, it is cool to see the classic map Eclipse revitalized for Natural Selection 2. Graphics sure have c...

Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise

10-16-2012

Of all the games I never expected to get a sequel, Naughty Bear was pretty high on the list. Not only was it a bottom-shelf title from a studio not exactly known for its long-running franchises, it was pretty underwhelming. A...

NCAA Football 12

07-13-2011

Last year, EA Sports decided to take a some risks, change up a few things and make a pretty darn good college football game. Well, apparently, we liked the experimental title enough that they decided to do some...

NCAA Football 13

07-27-2012

When I previewed NCAA Football 14 earlier this year, I noted that the best news about the game is that it uses the Infinity Engine 2, the original iteration of which made Madden 13 the best entry in the series in many years. ...

NCAA Football 14

07-05-2013

[Update: Electronic Arts' official response has come from EA Sports executive vice president Andrew Wilson, who writes that the company "will continue to develop and publish college football games, but we will no longer incl...

NCIS

11-03-2011

After the drop in quality between 2009's CSI: Deadly Intent with its crazy cases and the plain mediocre CSI: Fatal Conspiracy in 2010, it appears Ubisoft has moved development of the similar and new NCIS game from Telltale Ga...

Need for Speed Most Wanted

10-30-2012

Criterion Games is a company known for releasing substantial post-release content for its titles.  This statement is no more apparent than with the studio's last Burnout title, Burnout Paradise, which not only saw substa...

Need for Speed Rivals

11-17-2013

When it was announced, I thought EA Access sounded like a decent value depending on your personal gaming habits. That's still where I'm at. This month's addition to the Vault, Need for Speed Rivals, doesn't do much to change ...

Need for Speed The Run

11-14-2011

While I prefer racing sims, sometimes it's nice to not have to worry about technical details like race formation, proper lines and vehicle specifications. Sometimes you just want to go fast. EA's Need for Speed has always ser...

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

11-09-2010

With 2008’s Burnout Paradise, Criterion Games solidified its spot as the king of fast-paced, arcade-style racing. So when Electronic Arts decided it was ready to take the Need for Speed series back to its earl...

Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed

04-06-2011

The Need For Speed: Shift series has been about capturing the adrenaline pumping speed and finesse of hardcore style racing. Now, the Shift series is making a return to the iOS with a port of Shift 2: Unleashed.

Neo Aquarium

08-18-2012

Neo Aquarium is weird. That was all I knew about the game when I started it up. Well, that and the fact that it features crabs with lasers. No more needed to be known, I thought -- this was going to be wonderful. I should hav...

Neo XYX

04-09-2014

The shoot-'em-up genre will never perish, and neither will the Dreamcast. No matter how niche it can get at times, shooters old and new come out of the woodwork in the most unexpected of places, from Steam to legacy consoles. One such release is Neo XYX, a new (yes, in 2014) game for the Sega's last console, making this the second Dreamcast release this year. It's also the best.

NES Remix

12-19-2013

In case you haven't played both NES Remix and NES Remix 2, you can pick up both later this year in the form of a physical copy. It's always been rumored since Nintendo mentioned it in passing as a definite Japanese relea...

Never Alone

11-18-2014

A cursory glance at Upper One Games' Never Alone, while sure to impress, won't do it justice. Its appeal is obvious, but its intention is buried shallow under a light dusting of snow. But, it's that intention that transc...

NeverDead

When creating a videogame protagonist with a particular super power, there's an extra responsibility to create a challenging, rewarding sense of balance. If your hero has enhanced strength and speed, how do you keep enem...
