FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Talking Point: Is It Time to Say Goodbye to th...:

The dualshock is the most unergonomic controller out there. Without a change it's most likely going to decide my purchase with not getting a PS4. I just find the damn thing so uncomfortable.
I have noticed most smaller humans like it, but bigger ones do not. I stand in the land of almost giants, so I'm in the latter. If they wish to keep it, fine... but it should be something similar to Wii U's classic controller option.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Disney Infinity Goes Above and Beyond Skylande...:

Outrageously overpriced... much like being in a Disney store.
Hell, I'm just waiting for a full-on NBX game. One where you're completely immersed in Halloween Town. If they ever make a game like that, I'll get it.

Why no Vita love, Disney? - Sony's handheld seems to be on the brink of extinction more and more. So sad.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Sony Executive Teases Incoming PlayStation 4 A...:

I'm just not interested at all in a PS4 or Xbox720.
I have all the consoles now, but I'm just not sure I'm going to be getting another any time soon... maybe couple years down the road. I don't know though. I can't imagine what they could do better. I don't really care about graphics. Maybe if Move/Kinect is more immersive... that would give me a reason to buy. But a new console for just shiny new graphics? No.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Kaz Hirai: PS Vita Sales Are on the Low End of...:

I just bought an external hard drive on sale for $130. It has 2TB worth of storage. That's almost as much as 32GB, right? Yes, for only $30 more I got 2TB. Seriously, Sony? It's not the price of the Vita that's the problem... It's the memory cards.

When did the PS3 start selling? Oh yes, when they lowered the damn price! And that was a huge drop from the original. 50%, if I remember correctly. That's why Sony can boast how good it's doing now.

Having said all this, I think the Vita is great. But something must be done if they want this thing to even remotely sustain long term. It's definitely the best handheld out there, but apparently that's just not enough these days.

And then you have the whole "elitist" crowd who thinks they're entitled to everything for nothing. That's probably a huge part of the problem, as well.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Mega Man Titles Join Brutal North American PS ...:

Personally, I am not a fan of any subscription service, so therefor I have issues with PS+ on that level. But what really bothers me is that PS+ has split the Sony community apart. Not a very wise move on their part. They have made it so people not only bicker about XBOX or PS3 being better, but caused a rift in their own community.
I could on and on about the pricing structure, and how it's completely mishandled, but fact of the matter is I just no longer care about it. I just feel sorry for those who think they're getting great deals, when in fact those deals were available for everyone... and you didn't have to pay to have access to get the deals.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Review: Page Chronica (PlayStation Network):

@Gemuarto - I'm assuming you mean Singapore, or as it's officially known, Republic of Singapore. Such a beautiful country. What difference does it make where a game is made? I'm trying to make sense of your comment.

Thanks for the review, Sammy. I wasn't even aware this game existed until recently.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Game of the Year: Best PlayStation 3 Game of 2012:

I would've thought a PS3 exclusive would've been named... or at least had more of them in the Honorable Mentions.
When lists like this are made it truly shows that there's really not that much difference between consoles. It's merely something for people to disagree upon and sometimes argue.
I wonder if one of the three won't make it past next generation.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Talking Point: Could 2013 Be the PlayStation 3...:

I can't imagine Sly Cooper ever selling a PS3 in the States; people here just don't care much about that franchise... That is, if they even know what it is. I imagine Sly will be forever lurking in the bargain bins. I personally am not for or against it. That's just how it is.

God of War - This franchise is on the way out with most people I know. Button mashing just doesn't have the same appeal as it used to.

BioShock Infinite is for frat boys. No interest whatsoever.

Tomb Raider looks fantastic. Hopefully it's a proper reboot.

GTA5 - Appears to be just like the previous 3 & 4 - We want another Red Dead-esque game, RockStar!

The Last Of Us looks amazing. This is the only exclusive title for PS3 that I'm truly interested in for next year. A boundary pusher.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on First Impressions: LittleBigPlanet 2's Cross-C...:

Oh, how I enjoy my Wii U --- I really wish Sony would stop trying to play catch-up sometimes.
I feel like this will never amount to many games using this due to the price involved. Sony could be using their resources more wisely. But what do I know? It's not like they're having financial issues, are they?



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Why Is BioShock Infinite's Box Art So Bad?:

A 2nd article on this cover?
Although, reading this one makes me have zero interest in this game now. Funny how that works. Just mentioning wanting frat members to play this game threw me off. If people like that are the desired market, it's not for me. The fact that time was wasted going around to frat houses for marketing research... pass! Yes, I loathe people like that.
And I was one of the people who didn't think it looked that bad. Old timey carnival feel. Generic, yes... but isn't that the norm?



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Feature: How a Picnic Shaped the Development o...:

@get2sammyb Oh, yes. It is an improvement, visually, over the first. I didn't mean for others to think it isn't. I just don't feel that it draws you in like other titles. There's nothing to make this stand out visually from any other "family" looking games. It lacks flair, in my opinion... which is made up for with it's controls!
Improved, yes. Immersion, no.
Could you imagine playing a wonderful title like the SC series but in a video game world with the style of Journey, Uncharted, AC, Rayman Origins, etc... you see, those titles all have completely different styles, but they draw you into their worlds. That's what I'm getting at. Zindagi just needs someone with more style to create their worlds.

Medieval Moves... Ha! I didn't even pick that up in the bargain bin. Just didn't appeal to me. I think I was just mad at Z for not making SC2 at the time.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Review: Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse (Pl...:

Family Guy, South Park, The Simpson, Looney Tunes, every Pixar film... Why the arguing?! They're all great animation! They all have their own style. It's not about which is better, because it's impossible to judge. Enjoy them for what they are: cartoons.

But about this game: Hmm, games developed after television shows seem to be about as good as games developed after movies. This game had so much potential. Heck, the people who work on the show already did 80% of the work with creating the Family Guy world...



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Feature: How a Picnic Shaped the Development o...:

The games that are fantastic and always get played:
Table Tennis
Bocce (extra courses, please)
Disc Golf (only one 18 hole course?!)

The games that sometimes get played, briefly:

The games that should be included:
Skee-Ball (alley ball - similar to Bowling)
Lawn Darts (would work much like Bocce)

The games that rarely, if ever, get played:

I love playing both SC titles, but the sequel is lacking in so many ways... and it all starts before you even open the game with that horrible cover. It's quite possibly the worst cover in gaming history. Luckily I do not judge things by their cover.

The fact that I was able to pick up multiple brand new copies for $10 shows me this title isn't selling like it should be. 75% off, not even a month after release. Insane! Something is wrong here, because Zindagi Games is the absolute best when it comes to motion gaming. I have gone on and on about how Table Tennis on SC1 is the best representation on how a motion based game should play. It's just downright amazing... and anyone who argues that is just not all there in the head.

My main problem with SC is the art style. It just lacks that total immersion experience. It has great gameplay but with characters you cannot relate to in an enviroment you don't care to explore. This is why I think people dismiss these two titles. They just don't visually draw you in. It's something you have to experience to fully appreciate, and most people aren't willing to buy the extra peripherals in the hopes that they'll be supported. Oh, how they're missing out!



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Analyst: Sony May Need to Cut the PS Vita's Pr...:

Damn nice machine. Certainly the prettiest of the handhelds. I'm just amazed how vibrant the screen is. Zen Pinball is so hard to put down on the Vita. I wish I could play all my PSN titles on the Vita... That would be a HUGE selling point!
Hate those memory card prices though. That is the main reason most of my friends don't have one.
Only true Sony fanboys will argue for the price of them... and in the process, show their ignorance.
32gb for $100? You can buy an external TB hard drive for less than that. Not really for portable gaming though.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Yes, Zindagi Has Considered Making a Standalon...:

Table Tennis on the original SC is by far the best motion gaming one can have. When you play at the gold level, it's as if you're actually playing a real game of table tennis. Nothing even come close. There's not a single game that's even near the same level as it.

I was let down by SC2. Seriously, Archery again? If you're going to retread your games, why not have more Disc Golf or Bocce courses? Those are the two that get played the most with large groups of people, but there's just not enough courses... Especially with Disc Golf. Only 18 Holes? Come on!
I'm thinking the sequel didn't sell that well, being how I was able to pick up a brand new copy on BF for $10. Great deal.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on BioShock Infinite's Box Art Looks Really Bland:

I see nothing wrong with this cover. The color palette they used is actually quite pleasing. And to be completely honest, it kind of reminds me of an old school carnival that you don't see too many of these days.
The only thing I don't really care for is the the small advert about the inclusion of the free original game that comes with it. It's the only thing out of place.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (PlayStation 3):

COD is the new Madden. Every year = minor tweaks, but nothing really worth buying an entire new game. Yet people do buy it. It saddens me and makes me laugh at the same time. This is what defines this generation of games... and gamers. And I want no part of it.

One thing I will say about these COD games is that seem to keep people entertained for months on end, which is how you get your money's worth.
Personally, I would rather play a new game with only a 3 hour campaign every week than this game over and over and over and over and over... because that is exactly what some of my friends do.

I'm glad for those who do enjoy it... I'm just saddened by those who live for it.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on North American Kids Want a PSP More Than a Pla...:

You definitely can get more use from an iPad over a Vita, but a PSP over a Vita? Ha!
Apple makes great products. I'm writing this from a MacBook. Those who knock them show their envy. I personally will never own an iPad because I don't have a need for it, but I'm not stupid enough to knock it because I don't own one. Other companies make great Tablets, as well... I won't own one of those neither. Just don't have a need. It's merely a fancy toy that can do more than any portable gaming device.

I only know a handful of Vita owners, yet dozens of Tablet owners. Vita has a long way to go to become mainstream. I hope it happens. It's a fantastic machine! That damn screen looks so nice when playing. Kill the PSP, focus on Vita. Tablets are a different/non-argument.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Review: Joe Danger 2: The Movie (PlayStation N...:

I have found this game to be way easier than the first one... but that's not a complaint, per se. I've just been blazing through the levels so fast, grabbing all the stars and pro medals with ease. I only have a couple remaining pro medals from the downloadable tour to get and I'm 100% trophy wise... but that doesn't mean this game is by any means easy to complete. You will get frustrated from time-to-time on a certain track. Superior platforming skills will be needed. Joe Danger makes you work for those pesky pro medals.
I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoyed the first one. Joe Danger is great escapism. It's an interactive cartoon with great controls and level design. It's everything a great videogame should be. How can you not love it? Sure it doesn't have online real-time multiplayer, but this is a single player experience for me. I'm happy about being able to get new tracks from random people now though.
But make no mistake about it, both of these games are old school hard if you wish to grab everything in the levels. Be prepared for some challenges.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Joe Danger 2: The Movie Races onto PSN Next Week:

This is the game that I have been waiting for for too many years!
Gaiden challenge accepted.

I'm the only person I know that has a 100% completion of the first game. That damn Insert Disk 2 stage is the hardest level I've beat in any video game... ever. To do it flawlessly takes well over 1,000 attempts. I now have it mastered. Oh, so many hours wasted on the original.



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition Fires onto PS3...:

Damn, that's one high price tag for an HD upgrade to a game that launched in 2006.
I would like this game to succeed, because I'm actually a fan of it, but I don't think many people will jump on an arcade shooter for $30.
I think this should've been a PSN download only for $10 or so for it to have a, ahem, shot. But hopefully I'm wrong (like usual).



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Review: Tokyo Jungle (PlayStation Network):

I'm glad to see games like this being made. I personally don't agree with the score, but definitely think it's worth a purchase.
With the lower price point (that many Americans I know seem to think is too high - wth?!) you really can't go wrong with the title. If anything, it's just nice to run around as a little chicken.

I cannot wait for the sequel: Chicago Desert



FuzzyYellowBalls commented on Sony Has "Nothing Against" a PS3 and Vita Bundle:

Agree with Sammy and Aviator.
Although attractive in theory, the price would just make it a very bad business move... especially since the Vita isn't dropping in price and the PS3 actually went up with it's redesign.
Oh, Sony, how I hope you guys know what you're doing...
