@ztpayne7

I want to wait and see how Dragon Age turns out before getting too nervous but given some stuff lately, I'm not confident the next Mass Effect will deliver. I hope to be wrong but Bioware having lost some key people and with EA controlling the future of the franchise, yeah...

@adf86

That's the thing that annoys me about MS. I don't mind a company trying to lock up exclusives but the problem is they're all timed. Rise of the Tomb Raider a perfect example, if that fails to move Xbox Ones and doesn't reach sales of the first game then who really benefitted? Not SE and CD, not Xbox owners who getting the damn game anyway and certainly not PC and PS owners, the true life blood of the series, who got locked out because of the scum that currently poisons SE and CD (I still blame those two companies for this deal more than anything because unless I see some numbers that prove otherwise, there was no need to sell out). MS clearly has money to spend given the ridiculous amount its been throwing around lately. Take that money, rebuild Rare and start a new studio or two.

I'm interested in the NPDs too. On Gamestop and Amazon NA the X1 version has tracked highest lately, with PS4 in second. Prior to that however it was the PS4 version on top followed by X1 then the last-gen consoles. If I had to guess, I'd say Sept. will go PS4, X1, X360, PS3, after that, it'll be the current gen versions possibly flip-flopping a few times. The % breakdown across all 4 consoles will be most interesting, hopefully they give us some real numbers.

@Sadodi

The game is already on PS4 and PS3 and is a cashcow. Considering the amount of money MS just spent for the franchise it would be utterly stupid not to try and milk it for all its worth on consoles it already has been released for. The real question is what happens with the sequel.... if there even is one. This is the kind of game where they could probably just keep the add-ons coming and watch the money roll in from those alone.

Actually a fair point I didn't consider Plus on PS3 is still good and since MS removed its head from its a$$ long enough to create 'Games with Gold' there's been a lot of good full games for free on 360 that unlike Plus are actually yours to keep. Those could be factors, but it still doesn't negate the current gen versions selling better. Time for developers to move on from those two, now ancient machines.

Not really that excited about this game but it sounds like Plus Edition is a good enough sample size that I'll be able to decide if it's worth the upgrade. One thing I will say, the season pass and free content on offer is some of the best I've seen for a game. So points to Evolution for that.

Far Cry 4 is my most anticipated but I'm also getting AC Unity, CoD: Advanced Warfare, GTA V and LBP 3, lack of games to play isn't an issue, none of these are games that a PS4 needed to be purchased to enjoy though. In that sense, hopefully 2015 will be much better.

Only two disconnects so far and I was able to get right back into the game at the most recent checkpoint so yeah, I've criticized Sony in the past regarding PSN but so far so good. Next big test will be Christmas day.

Gamer83 commented on Round Up: Destiny PS4 Reviews Shoot for the Moon:

I'd probably give it a 8.5, it's not a game changer but I enjoy the story more than I think others do, so I'd want to rate it higher than 8/10. As far as the gameplay itself, it's about as good as I'd hope for in a shooter. I've been in some large scale battles, and small ones but the gun play seems fast and fluid to me. Graphics are also really nice, but yeah, I'd agree inFamous, Killzone and even MLB The Show actually are ahead of it. Haven't tried playing on a last gen console yet but it'd be interesting to see if I could tell a difference in visuals. It's averaging about a 74 right now at Metacritic. Which I don't understand at all when Titanfall has an 86 and that pile of garbage Brokenfield 4 had an 87 last I checked. The exclusivity hype obviously sucked reviewers in when it came to Titanfall but the BF 4 reviews astound me. It's also funny how Destiny is being criticized for being 'safe' and not doing anything special, yet Titanfall, online-multiplayer only, and a game that really did nothing new for the genre, gets praised left and right.

Gamer83 commented on Wait, There Are More Unannounced PS4 Titles Du...:

Oh there will definitely be plenty more unneeded ports that haven't been announced yet. GTA, TLoU and Halo I get, even Tomb Raider kind of makes sense, but who the hell asked for Saints Row IV? Beyond doesn't need one either. Lets get the ball rolling with the real current-gen games PLEASE!

Gamer83 commented on Rumour: Minecraft Maker May Be Purchased by Mi...:

Love the hypocrisy here. Bullying? It's f**king business for Christ's sake. Was it bullying when Sony bought out former independent developers in the past? It's not bullying when Sony demands to own the IP for a game it publishes, even if it didn't create the IP, but it's bs, if MS does it. I love this site and like everybody else am a huge fan of the PlayStation brand but the Sony nuthugging and constant MS bashing is beyond pathetic.

@rastamadeus
You expected a different reaction?

@BLPs
Rare was losing talent before MS took over, the move to MS just made things worse. Honestly, do you think if something wasn't up that Nintendo would have let go that easily? Nintendo saw a new company in the console industry trying to make a splash and played them for fools. Some of what happened with Rare is MS' fault (sticking the talent left on Kinect and doing nothing prior to Kinect to build the studio back up) but there's much more to this story than the ridiculous 'MS ruined Rare' nonsense that is always posted in every game forum whenever the name is brought up.

Gamer83 commented on Feature: Man on the Moon - Our Early Intergala...:

Probably my favorite PS4 game so far. We'll see if that holds up. I actually like how the story telling is done, though clearly not at the level of Naughty Dog or early Bioware games, it's good enough for an FPS.

Gamer83 commented on Approximately How Long Does Destiny's Story Ta...:

Given how the story goes in most FPS, I'd say 10 hours is good enough. Anything after that and it'd probably start getting really stupid. There's also going to be expansions that add to the story so we'll see how that goes.

I'm actually looking forward to this Call of Duty, first time since MW 2 (though that game ended up disappointing me a bit as it wasn't as good as 1). I've never been a huge fan of the series but I thought CoD 2 and MW 1 were great games.

MS has been throwing money around like crazy and it probably isn't done. Sony's first party teams better deliver because I don't think Tomb Raider is the last third party game we're going to see go Xbox exclusive.

Gamer83 commented on PS4 May Not Be At the Foot of the Japanese Har...:

Japan is a lost cause for both Sony and MS, hell even the Wii U (12K-15K a week is nothing special) isn't tearing it up though a discussion with a Nintendo fanboy would have you believe otherwise. We know MS is going to make a huge push in China, Sony should as well. Lots of potential new consumers and who knows, if consoles take off there maybe we'll find out about some talented developers we had no clue existed.

@get2sammyb

inFamous advertising was pretty poor in North America, especially in comparison to how Titanfall was advertised. The advertising for the console itself has been great though, and I've seen plenty of Destiny advertising. I imagine, next year The Order will get a huge push. I still think the gameplay seems pathetic but graphically it's a showcase title, no question about that.

@Jazzer94

If I were a betting man I'd put money on them being troll reviews, although some are stupid enough to be serious. The game may be a 7 for some or may be even a six but anything und that, at least from what I've played seems a bit harsh. I won't even get started on the stupidity of the 3s and 4s and the 0s-2s are definitely troll reviews and sadly it happens for every game, no matter which company it's from, where some imbeciles give a 0 to 'balance things out.' To be fair the 10/10 reviews where it's just somebody gushing over a game is extremely ridiculous too. For example, I love TLoU but it does have flaws eventhough some don't want to admit it.

@get2sammyb

So far, so good for me in Upstate NY. But I think during the evening on Tuesday and the next 2-4 days to follow will be the real test. Same for XBL.

As for the game itself, I'm loving it so far, just like I figured I would based off the beta. It's like Halo (still my favorite FPS), mixed with some Borderlands with a little bit of Mass Effect added for good measure, that's probably the best thing about it. The shooting is rock solid, which is expected from Bungie and the sound track is great too. The online-only thing still bothers me but fortunately the game is good enough to get past that. And very, very, very minor disappointment is until reaching level 20 I can't use that Armor Shader that's given out for also pre-ordering Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Gamer83 commented on Batman: Arkham Knight Removes Its Cloak on PS4...:

Hopefully they actually stick to this release date. Anyway, I'd have upgraded to the Limited Edition but I don't like having extra stuff lying around that I won't use like that statue. I'd prefer some in-game content instead but it's cool for collectors. Looks like it might be a high quality statue.

Gamer83 commented on When Will Destiny's PS4 Servers Go Online?:

@GamerZack87

Well, good luck getting one either way. If you do get one of the bundles, feel free to add me on PSN, NYYanks21. I'm looking for as many people to play the game with as possible.

@ReigningSemtex
I think GTA V f'ed up both the PSN and Live when it launched last year. We'll see if both companies are better prepared for Destiny. There will probably be problems on both but being 100% honest I'd expect MS to deal with it quicker and better. Don't care if it isn't the popular thing to say around here, in all my years of experience with both brands, Live has been the better service. PSN has improved a lot but also still has a long way to go and lately, whether Sony's fault or not, the PSN being down has not been a good thing.
