I cancelled, but only because I can't afford the subscription when I don't get to permanantly own the free games. I mostly got into it for sales, but now I own most of the games I want. I'll wait another year before I get back into it.

I like history, but I never cared for the french revolution. This was a franchise that I thought really needed shaking up, and going from pirates to this is nothing but a step back in my mind...

Obviously I have to wait for actual gameplay news, but my excitement has been tempered.

PS3 and PSVita. I'm getting it for the Vita since I got Rainbow Moon for the PS3.

As for this game, it certainly looks better than when I saw it before. I'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. I will say that I'm liking how they're wording things, making it sound like you're trying to make a game that's a unique take on old mechanics, innovating and revitalizing them instead of just copying them (which is the impression I keep getting from a lot of other Kickstarter RPGs). It sort of makes me think of 3D Dot Game Heroes, which parodied the Zelda franchise, as well as Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy, but still took to heart the lessons learned from those games and tried its best to refine the mechanics it was parodying, creating a game that stood out on its own merit.

Hopefully you guys can live up to your ambitions.

Hahaha! This is no contest. Who the hell like's Squall, king of the dorks and useless weaponry? Yu, however, is awesome, good with the ladies, and is a versatile fighter with a great Persona ability.

Surely Yu owns this poll.

Looks at Poll results

Why isn't this price drop news on PureXbox?

Anyways, I'd be worried. It's like Sega cutting prices and giving away Sonic 2 at the same time. It could be big, at least in the UK. If it works there, maybe they'll consider doing something similar elsewhere?

"Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 falls short of the high bar set by its predecessor"

Gee, they sure have lowered the bar for what counts as a "high bar" these days. :P

But seriously, the first game was okay, but not more than that. If this game is worse, I won't even go near it.

Good to know that:

A) They might do it someday
B) They'll only do it if they have a good reason to.

I'm tired of needless sequels. I like Jak as much as the next guy, but we aren't talking about a game that ended on a potential cliffhanger like Sly did.



CanisWolfred commented on Review: Strider (PlayStation 4):

I'll have to read the review more thoroughly, but I had a feeling some of the additrions would be questionable. I was going to wait for a sale unless it turned out to be stupendous or something, but only because I'm short on cash at the moment.

Was anything really surprised by this? Every new gen is a new challenge. Granted, I do think that the whole escalation of AAA gaming is really getting out of hand - I think at this point, developers are just gonna have to stop going all out. It's not like we need games to just keep getting bigger. Smaller games are fine, too, and the sooner people realize that, the better off things'll be.



CanisWolfred commented on Game of the Year: Best PlayStation Vita Games ...:

I have no issue with these awards.

I guess I'll throw a vote at Dragon's Crown, since the updates are turning it into one of the meatiest games on the system.
I am surprised Muramasa isn't on the list to vote. Not that it's my GOTY or anything, but still.



CanisWolfred commented on Game of the Year: Best PlayStation 3 Games of ...:

Ni no Kuni was an easy vote for me. I think it was the only PS3 game that came out this year that I liked. Not to take away from Ni no Kuni's greatness, though - it's easily one of my top games of the year, bar none.

Nvm, Blood Dragon came out this year. That gets my second place at least.



CanisWolfred commented on Talking Point: Should Sony Mirror Steam's Disc...:

No. That would be absolutely reckless of them. That's like saying we people should follow the App store model - it would ruinous to the entire industry in the longrun. The last thing this industry needs is everyone having such large backlogs that eventually no one feels the need to buy new games, or buy any game at full price at least, thus driving down prices to an absurd amount until no one makes money anymore.
