Gamer83 commented on March's Free PlayStation Plus Games include Od...:

It's not a bad lineup, at least on the PS4, but when Sony keeps the consumers in the dark and the results is this it's going to get hate. And I don't think it's unfair either. At some point I would love to see the people in suits at Sony get their heads out of their asses regarding communication but as long as people defend them it won't change.

Done. While I'm against a mandatory fee (glad to read nothing like that is in the works for PushSquare) I'd definitely consider an optional subscription, for the right price, if it helped make the website even better than it already is.

Gamer83 commented on Tearaway Unfolded Will Send You a Message This...:

Never played much of the Vita version but what I did play was very good so this may be a purchase.

I'm happy to see the game get a second chance, hopefully it does well enough that maybe a sequel for PS4 is a possibility. Also would like a PS4 re-release of Gravity Rush, another criminally overlooked game.

@FullbringIchigo

It's safe to assume this game didn't need to be funded. Unlike Capcom, SE isn't exactly in financial peril, the scumbag idiots who run the company just don't want to actually do anything that makes sense and they'll take shortcuts where they can. It's a business in the end so whatever, but if Rise of the Tomb Raider only does moderately well and doesn't move a ton of Xbox Ones, it was an idiotic decision and a waste of money all around. MS will advertise the hell out of the game, it better hope that pays off.

Gamer83 commented on First Impressions: Is Resident Evil: Revelatio...:

I can get past the graphics and this probably wouldn't have been top of the line anyway but it's still a game that makes me say 'f*** the PS3 and 360.' It's pretty clear it was held back. Like I said, I wouldn't have expected miracles if it was PS4/Xbox One/PC but it would've looked better.

Gamer83 commented on Review: The Order: 1886 (PlayStation 4):

@banacheck

Yeah, I was expecting some negative reviews. But I was thinking it'd be a game that got a mixed reception, however, I'd say right now it seems more like a negative reception. Still undecided what I'm going to do. I do want to see how the story plays out but I could probably do that by watching videos on youtube. Something like Toukiden or Bloodborne may provide more actual gameplay.

@sub12

I'd agree with you. Soul Calibur was my favorite fighting game on Dreamcast, but Dead or Alive 2 was by no means a pushover, in fact, I'd say it ranks just slightly behind SC.

And a bit off topic, but for anybody who likes fighting games (I'm a big fan of the genre), Dreamcast was a freaking must-own device. Tons and tons of good fighters. SC, DoA 2, Virtua Fighter 3, Power Stone 1 and 2, several different Street Fighters, Ready 2 Rumble. And I'm sure I'm missing some other good ones, but SC, DoA 2, R2R and VF 3 were all I needed.

@Bad-MuthaAdebisi

I had more fun playing DoA. I did prefer the original Soul Calibur to DoA 2 on Dreamcast, and I'd say SC 2 was better than DoA 3. After that though, I've preferred Dead or Alive. It doesn't seem like Namco even tries with Soul Calibur anymore. It still cares about Tekken but its like it could give a damn if SC is good or not.

Unfortunately, Ready at Dawn may just be a studio better suited to handhelds. If this game sells well enough, it doesn't hurt to give them a second chance on a sequel but I definitely wouldn't be confident in it being a good game.

This series never seems to review as well as Virtua Fighter or Soul Calibur but I'd like I say it a lot better than either of those series. I'd put it second of the 3D fighters. Still put Tekken ahead of it, but DoA is just really fun to play.

@JaxonH

Agree and disagree. There's nothing wrong with having great cinematic experiences that tell a great story, but you also need to hit on the gameplay. Sadly it appears this one didn't really hit on anything as some reviews I've read even say the story lets itself down as it gets towards the end.

Gamer83 commented on Review: The Order: 1886 (PlayStation 4):

Disappointing. I've read several reviews now, even the one from Game Informer, an outlet that imo is too easy on games, and even at GI it seems like the impression is an overall 'meh.' Unfortunately I think I'm going to cancel my pre-order, I was expecting mixed reviews but its actually worse than that. So now the question is, spend the $60 on what is clearly yet another mediocre failure of an exclusive or wait and see if Bloodborne turns out better. Or maybe support the developers of Toukiden who while not blowing people away from a technical and story aspect are at least delivering on content and gameplay while still making a product that on the graphics front looks good enough.

Sad though, yes I know the argument will be 'exclusives don't matter,' blah blah blah. They do matter though because that's what sets consoles apart and Sony has failed massively to this point. Even PS3 for as much crap as the console got in its first few years had some great first party content. Looking at the rest of the year, if Bloodborne failed, its going to be a disaster because all that leaves is Uncharted 4 which is no guarantee to be a 2015 game. Until Dawn does seem good at all, God of War and Gran Turismo aren't even close, Street Fighter V is probably fall 2016 at the earliest and we've heard nothing about Ratchet & Clank.

Gamer83 commented on Japan's PS4 Games Lineup Is Absolutely Ridicul...:

Hopefully some, or if we're lucky, most, will come to the West also and sell well. I miss the good old days of Japanese developers before they either went to mobile or the suits running the companies went insane and started 'Westernizing' games that didn't need to be because they were already loved by us. Nobody asked for Resident Evil to be a mix of CoD and Gears, that was just stupid people looking at numbers of certain games and thinking 'hey if we do this to our game we can appeal to that market too.' Idiotic. Anyway, I hope we get God Eater 2 and Yakuza Zero. I'd buy both. And I'm tempted to buy Toukiden: Kiwami just to support Japanese developers taking a risk with these 'B' level efforts that are sorely lacking but we used to have in abundance. Some say the indies fill that role, but I disagree, especially since a lot of indies have fallen into traps as well like retro-izing their games.

Gamer83 commented on Ready at Dawn: Some People Will Love The Order...:

Frankly, Ready at Dawn did bring some of this on the game with some of its decision making. I won't form an opinion until I play it, but I'm not expecting much more than a great looking game that 'had potential.' I don't think it'll be bad but it looks like greatness is going to continue to wait. I'd love to be wrong though, will find out Friday.

Gamer83 commented on Store Preview: The Order: 1886, Dead or Alive ...:

I've been told by friends who work at several different Gamestops that they've got a lot of pre-orders. But to be fair we're talking a small sample size in upstate New York. The PS4 is extremely popular in the area where I live and people have to be starving for any exclusive that seems it could be halfway decent (I'd say if you can only get one save the money for Bloodborne but whatever) so it makes sense that it would track high. If I have to guess, people will buy it simply for the graphics but I could be wrong, we'll have to see. I'm getting it as well as DoA 5, I have a feeling though I'll enjoy the latter much more based on what I played back in 2012.

Gamer83 commented on We Need Different Types of Games, Says The Ord...:

I agree with them on this, different games are needed, but I don't know if I'd share the same thought process as the people at Ready on Dawn. To me, it's a shame that the Japanese gaming market has been destroyed by the rise of mobile gaming and idiotic decision making like 'westernizing' games such as Resident Evil and Final Fantasy which were already well loved in North America and Europe and didn't need to be changed. Japan is where most of the creativity lied and without some of those games they used to provide all we're seeing is shooter after shooter, open world game after open world game. I love both genres but I miss the 'B' level efforts as well from the old Capcom which would give us something like Devil May Cry or Onimusha. I miss the Castlevanias, Contras, Time Crisises, the real Silent Hill, Brave Fencer Musasi, the Mana games, Breath of Fire, etc.

Gamer83 commented on Darksiders 2 Is Indeed Bringing Death to PS4:

@BoltedArc

At least this year there's still plenty of new games on the way too. Batman: Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3 and Uncharted 4 may all be sequels but they will be great games. Then there's Bloodborne, we already got Dying Light and Evolve. This isn't like last year where it was really on inFamous: Second Son and Titanfall until much later in the year.

Gamer83 commented on Talking Point: How Important Is Game Length?:

Heavenly Sword took me 5-7 hours to complete. I paid the full $60 for it and didn't regret it one bit. The argument over length is a little overblown. I remember paying anywhere from $55-$70 back in the day for a Genesis or SNES game that could be beat in 2 or 3 hours. I don't want to hear the 'well games back then were so replayable' argument because what is or isn't replayable varies from person to person. I also don't want to hear about technology or whatever else. $55 for a 3 hour game is $55 for a 3 hour game. As long as it's an awesome game that's all I care about. I do think though this is where Ready at Dawn painted itself into a corner with some of its decision making. Gears of War for example had a robust multiplayer and still managed to have around a 10 hour campaign. This game is singleplayer only I'd like to think Ready at Dawn would've been able to get a decently long campaign in there. Right now, it's looking like this is a studio that may have been better off sticking to handhelds.

@sub12

I prefer Tekken over other 3D fighters but I never understood the hate DoA gets. Fun factor is underrated, especially these days. Other fighters may be more technical and polished, DoA is just a blast to pick up and play and something has to be said for that.

At least the Yankees will be good in this game when I play as them. Unfortunately can't say the same for real life.

When it comes to the graphics, this series has always been pretty damn good at that so I didn't expect anything different this year.

I think it'll sell, reviews are another story.

Anyway, looking forward to DoA 5 Last Round on Tuesday. I rented the 360 version back when it came out but didn't get to play as much as I wanted. What I did play seemed like typical DoA, which isn't a bad thing.

Gamer83 commented on Rumour: Darksiders II: Definitive Edition Will...:

@JaxonH

This is actually one of the re-releases that I don't think is a terrible idea. Something like an Uncharted trilogy, while it would sell, is completely unnecessary, at least until Uncharted 4 has hit the market. Darksiders on the other hand has been away for a while and I don't think either game sold too spectacularly so as a way to gauge interest this is a good idea. From what I've read about it I'm not sure it's a series I could get into but I'd hope the re-release does well enough so fans can get a Darksiders 3.

It looks like a true contender for worst game of 2015. I'm going to play it but I don't expect I'll be able to make it through more than an hour. I couldn't handle Heavy Rain and this game seems like the same damn thing but with somehow an even worse story and voice acting.

Gamer83 commented on Sony's Approach to Indies Is Good for the Enti...:

@professorhat

The way I look at it is a sh*t game is a sh*t game, a great game is a great game. The problem is this nobody really looks at it like that because of the labels. The sooner companies stop referring to 'indie' and 'AAA' and just go back to talking about games, the better, because it will stop the arguments. It's the same kind of stupid labeling that has always hurt games. Last gen the Wii had plenty of games for the 'core' crowd but was labeled a 'casual' console because it also had stuff like Wii Sports and Wii Fit, and people cried and complained like those games had no place in the market. It's the same thing now just with indie games but 'professional' journalists with agendas to push their likes down people's throats and corporate d-bags who can't come up with better ways to hype games are the problem.

@professorhat

Fighting games are probably my third favorite genre behind open-world games and sports so yes for me it is better than Transistor. However, Transistor is a great game in its own right and I was happy to see it hit PS Plus this month. I also didn't see people 'out in droves' to hate on it. In past months I've seen people hate on indies but I'll be completely honest, aside from the month that gave us Velocity 2X, another great indie game, most of the indie offerings imo have been trash and have rightly been hated on. Just like I'd say people are well within their rights to not be excited over Thief when it eventually hits PS Plus.

@professorhat

That's a horrible example given that Injustice: Gods Among Us is a great fighting game. And this idiotic argument goes both ways. There's a segment of gamers who don't like indies, there's another that hate AAAs but cream themselves over any indie game that is released. I don't really give a damn what category a game falls into as long as its good but the indies are given a bit too much love and too much of a free pass on this website. That would be the only negative I could say about the reviewers here. I think they're spot on when it comes to reviewing the AAAs but when it's indie it seems to be instant win even the game isn't all that great.

It's year full calendar year two, if people really believe the PS4 can't, or won't, do more in the future they haven't paid attention to this industry over the years. As a console generation goes on and developers get more used to the hardware, results improve.

Gamer83 commented on Ready at Dawn: Concerns About PS4 Exclusive Th...:

@Boerewors

inFamous: Second Son doesn't belong with the likes of Killzone and DriveClub. It's actually a great game, I don't go along with the conspiracy theories. I think most PS4 exclusives have disappointed to this point but that was not one of them.

The Order could go either way. I don't think a game needs to innovate to be great. Tried and true is tried and true for a reason and if this is like a Gears of War game with an Victorian alternate history setting and cool story, that sounds good to me. My concern is it seems very QTE heavy, and I hate QTEs with a passion.
