Gamer83 commented on No Man's Sky Dev Received Death Threats Over D...:

@get2sammyb
Unfortunately the question is... Why should they care? Nothing happens. It's the same with these idiots who were attacking PSN everyday it seemed like and bringing it down for people. If there's no repercussions why should anybody care? Now granted, there's far bigger things in the world for authorities to worry about than a DDOS attack on the PlayStation Network, but I'd say death threats are pretty damn serious, even if it's from somebody who has absolutely no means of being able to do anything.

Gamer83 commented on No Man's Sky Dev Received Death Threats Over D...:

Well, I won't lie. I understand the frustration when a game is delayed, over and over and over again. While I can understand why it happens, it frankly is downright annoying when they say 'this date,' 'nope sorry this one,' and just weeks before 'oops again.' Obviously though the delay is to improve the game, and hopefully it will all be worth it. The idiots sending the death threats probably could do with a visit from the authorities just to shake them up a little bit and teach them to not act like dumb but these publishers who put this on the dev teams also need to freaking stop giving release dates. Do what Bethesda does, when the game is nearly ready announce it and give it a date then. If we're talking console manufacturers, I get that they have to move hardware, and hyping exclusives (full or timed) is one way to do that, but there has to be a better way to go about things than this. Announce early if it's a must but stop giving release dates and save the development team the headache of dealing with clowns on social media.

@SkanetWasTaken
I didn't see anything that would've caused the outburst. My guess is it's just the typical bs from people when they see a female game character in little clothing. Also, for as much praise as The Chinese Room's terribly boring walking simulator got from some circles, it didn't garner the praise The Witcher 3 did and gamers, 'hardcore' or 'casual' certainly hold CD Projekt Red in higher regard. What's the best way for a jealous studio to get attention? Cause a sh*t storm over nothing.

Gamer83 commented on PS4 Is a Beast! Sales Surpass 40 Million Units:

@xMEADx
People fail to take into account that unlike Xbox, PlayStation is actually a global brand. Not a knock, just a fact. I think a better reveal would've made things more competitive in MS' biggest markets, North America and the UK, but every where else, the PlayStation would still have a significant lead.

I'm interested to see what MS does though. It cut the original Xbox short of the traditional five years and released the 360 after just four to get a jump on the PS3. I could see something similar happening here and I'm ready to trade in my Xbox One for the new Xbox if that does happen. As long as it's backwards compatible with X1 from the start and I can transfer my saves.

@JoeBlogs
A lot of the games back then were short but you could get hours and hours because of how fun and replayable they were. Especially the old school beat 'em ups like Hyperstone Heist, Turtles in Time, Final Fight, Streets of Rage, etc. It was awesome to just sit down with another person and kick some ass in co-op.

I think the younger staff has been heavily involved with the recent 3D Mario platformers with Miyamoto taking a more supervisor role. There's obviously enough talent on the staff that Miyamoto could transition into retirement and not have to worry about his creations being destroyed.

@sub12
I've been saying it and keep taking heat for it but won't change my opinion... Miyamoto is well past his prime and should be looking to retire. He's a legend and I appreciate the hell out of what he accomplished and gave to us gamers over the years, but nothing lasts forever. Like legendary athletes who eventually have to step away, the time has come for Miyamoto. He's out of touch with the current industry and doesn't seem interested at all in trying to adapt. Regardless of what anybody thinks of the way gaming is in 2016, people have to be willing to change and when they're not it's time to find something else to do.

@arnoldlayne83
Over 100K units for Uncharted 4 in Japan is actually pretty good all things considered. What's concerning for me as a Star Fox fan is how much that game seems to have bombed there, of course there are circumstances that led up to this. Hopefully Nintendo remasters it for NX and gives it a traditional control scheme. There's no way I can see NX being as much of a bomb as the Wii U is at retail so I actually think just a few minor changes and Star Fox Zero could be a hit.

Gamer83 commented on Uncharted 4's Focus Testing Didn't Always Go S...:

@ReigningSemtex
I was a big fan of Golden Abyss but it was another Nathan Drake adventure and Bend collaborated with Naughty Dog. If Uncharted were to continue, I'd buy the next one, not going to pretend I wouldn't. And I expect Sony to continue it with a different studio because there is too much money it'd be missing out on. I hope Naughty Dog is really moving onto other things though. I think ND's best work is when it gets to do new franchises. Imo, Crash Bandicoot was good but bettered by Jak & Daxter (the first one anyway). J&D was topped by Uncharted and many people would argue TLoU is better than Uncharted. Basically, let Naughty Dog make another new IP.

@ReigningSemtex
I'll point to Halo 4 and 5 as examples of why sometimes it's good to finish a series on a high note and be happy with that rather than continuing it just because. Uncharted 4 ends perfectly. I love the series and it's bittersweet to see it go but at the same time, at least it's gone out on an extremely high note. I'd prefer that as to what happened to my former favorite franchise. Under MS and 343's direction Halo has become a pathetic shell of its former self. I don't want that for Uncharted.

Gamer83 commented on Uncharted 4's Focus Testing Didn't Always Go S...:

There's idiots on all sides of the gender wars, I won't go any further than that because my opinion on the matter isn't very popular. I'll just say I wish all these journalists would shut up and let creators create the character they want, male or female. As long as the protagonist is likeable and well developed, it shouldn't matter. And it's not like there hadn't been strong females before. Would it be nice if there were more? Absolutely, I believe balance is needed in everything, but a lot of stuff these days feels forced.

As far as Uncharted 4's DLC. Again, I'll have the unpopular, nothing new, but I was hoping to see Sam and Sully's adventure which was teased at the end and one of the main reasons is Sully's connection with Cutter and especially Chloe. Cutter was never developed where he needs real closure but it's absolutely criminal that they wrap up Nate's and Chloe's story arc with nothing more than a note. My hope is she'll show up in the DLC. I guess it could work with her serving as a mentor for Cassie as well but I think it'd be nice to see her and Cutter team up with Sully one more time and meet Nate's older brother.

I think it's unfortunate that these rumors started because at this point it feels like a massive missed opportunity and will be very disappointing if it doesn't happen, imo.

@Boerewors
Since I don't want to get my hopes up too much I'm just going to assume Sony gave up the rights so easily was because the sweet return is bucket loads of $$$ the likes of which you or I could only dream.

Gamer83 commented on Uncharted 4 Sells More Than 2.7 Million Copies...:

I'd like to know what week 1 sales were of other big games like the ACs, CoDs, Arkham Knight, MGS V and GTA V were on PS4 alone before downplaying this. The numbers are in line with sales from other games in the series and PS3 had a bigger userbase for sure when Uncharted 3 came out. 2.7 mil is a good number but I would've thought the sales would be higher, to be honest. I know it's only a release on one console but it's the system's best game, imo, and it's one that should have a more mass appeal than something like Bloodborne.

Gamer83 commented on Gran Turismo Sport Is Only 50 Per Cent Complete:

@TVRFLY
I agree with @Boerewors here. Not telling you what to do of course but I think it's crazy to say a 'true' GT fan shouldn't bother with Forza. I consider myself a GT fan, I loved the first three games, but Forza 1 came out and topped GT 4 and since then I made the switch to Forza and haven't been given a reason yet to go back. I was, and still am hoping GT Sport can change my mind, because again, I've loved the GT series in the past and I respect Polyphony as a studio. Just like consoles though, while I have my preferences, I go where something is being done better and right now Forza, whether it's the main Motorsport series or the Horizon sub-series, is the place to be for racing game fans. I had Horizon 2 as my runner-up for overall Game of the Year in 2014 and Motorsport 6 the runner-up for overall GOTY in 2015. Those games are phenomenal.

The Limited Edition seems nice but I'm one of those who's been underwhelmed by this game. Delay it now and give them more than 6 months to get this right. GT 6 was enough of a disappointment, I know Sony wants to sell VR but it shouldn't do so by sacrificing this franchise.

Gamer83 commented on Poll: Which Uncharted Game Is the Best?:

@sub12
Rise of the Tomb Raider is awesome and if somebody doesn't care for the story or characters in Uncharted, I could totally understand why they'd prefer RotTR. Having played both games, I give Uncharted 4 the edge. The gameplay isn't as deep but it's still just as fun, imo, in large part due to the improved gunplay. Add in the spectacular visuals and also the story and especially the personal moments between the characters, and I'm taking the best Uncharted games (2 and 4) over the two recent Tomb Raider games.

Gamer83 commented on Poll: Which Uncharted Game Is the Best?:

For right now I'm voting 2, but if I had to rank the games I'd actually have 2 and 4 on equal level. It's very tough to choose. But I also think it's the immediacy of the moment that plays a factor as well. Uncharted 2 was an awesome game that stuck with me for a long time. Same with The Last of Us. I think this question would be easier to answer a year from now after some time has passed.

3DS can probably go another two years at least if Nintendo wants, which is why I don't totally write off Tatsumi Kimishima's statement about NX not replacing 3DS. It's total nonsense when he says it's not a replacement for Wii U, however.

Gamer83 commented on Talking Point: Can Sony Top Its E3 2015 Press ...:

I think Sony can top last year's show because the games that got most people excited (The Last Guardian, Shenmue 3 and Final Fantasy VII remake) did nothing for me. That's not to say the rest of the show was bad, it just wasn't 'Holy sh*T greatest show of all times!' Horizon had a great reveal and it was nice to see Uncharetd 4 coming along well but I wasn't exactly blown away by anybody's show last year except Bethesda's. Everybody else was really solid, nothing.

So, what can make this year's PlayStation conference top last year's? Pretty simple really. The plans have to be fully laid out for VR, so show it off but don't let it drag on like what happened at December's PS Experience. Fully lay out plans for the PS4 Neo with no corporate bullsh*t speak, I'm sick of these giant ass corporations who charge people hundreds of dollars for these devices treating everybody like idiots. As an early adopter I understand that tech moves on and that sometimes those who wait will benefit. Console revisions always happen so just give us the plans and don't bs. As for games I want to see Gran Turismo Sport, Gravity Rush 2 and Horizon get some more stage time and for announcements I want to see God of War, Bend's game. Stuff I'm hoping for but not sure will happen... Sucker Punch-developed Spider-Man game and Crash Bandicoot.
