Gamer83 commented on All the Best Games Are on PS4, According to Sony:

@Kage_88

Even if somebody is like me and they don't care for many of Nintendo's exclusives outside of the Mario platformers, Zelda and Smash, I still don't think there's a question who has the best exclusives.

Right now it's Sony 3 (inFamous: Second, Bloodborne, MLB The Show series), MS 3 (Titanfall, Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive) and then with Nintendo it's pretty crazy. Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, Mario Kart 8, Smash Bros. Wii U, Wonderful 101, New Super Mario Bros. U, Bayonetta 2. Soon Devil's Third, Xenoblade Chronicles X and Splatoon, maybe Star Fox this year. That's a hell of a list, but unfortunately, just like the N64 days, Nintendo misses on every big third party multiplat, and whether hardcore Nintendo guys like it or not, that is a big deal. We can go on all day about the f ups of Ubisoft, EA, Activision, Sega, Bethesda, WB, Capcom, etc, but many of them still make good games and ones that sell, so no matter how much people b*tch, some of those companies must be doing something right. Hopefully with NX, Nintendo finds a way to get third parties back, even if it's not all of them, just get most of them. It would be huge to see Fallout and GTA on the same console as Mairo, Zelda and Metroid.

@Dohv

2013 was good, though that was mostly based on how much it was trolling MS (I would say hypocritically since I will always believe Sony was fully prepared to go down the same path had people not raged at MS over its policies). In 2009 I thought Sony had the best E3 showing and 2011 was pretty good. But yeah, Sony's E3 history from 2006 onward has been spotty at best.

Gamer83 commented on The New Need for Speed Is Called Need for Speed:

I like Rivals, and the last NFS games I played prior to that were Most Wanted 2005, Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted 2012, all excellent games, so definitely interested in this. It'll be one of those games I get on sale after the holidays when I've finished the bigger hits like MGS V and Halo 5.

@rastamadeus

I'd substitute Mario Kart 8 (found it pretty overrated if I'm honest) with Mario 3D World but either way, your point stands. Neither Sony or MS can claim to have 'all' the best, when Nintendo games can't be played on the PS4 or Xbox One. Nintendo misses out on a ton of great games as well though. But I also don't see Nintendo talk itself up as much as the other two. Which is probably should seeing as it has some of the highest rated games. Nintendo's advertising is virtually non-existent in North America though, same with Sony in regards to Vita. One thing I'll give MS, it never releases a product without the world knowing about it.

@JaxonH
Outside of a few bright spots (inFamous: Second Son in the first part of the year, Forza Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive at the end), last year wasn't too good. I'd say this year though, even with the silly amount of remasters, it's been much better. I was surprised how much I like Resident Evil Revelations 2. Mortal Kombat X is great and though I can't say for sure since I haven't played them, it seems Bloodborne and The Witcher 3 turned out to be awesome, thankfully. Now it's up to Arkham Knight to keep that rolling next month, assuming Rocksteady can hit a deadline sometime this generation.

If he truly thought 2014 was the best E3 ever for Sony he's easily impressed....

Anyway, I don't care if they have a game to announce for this holiday or not but there needs to be one or two big first party reveals. Sony does have a good number of studios and they say they're all working on stuff so something should be ready. Since God of War 3 is getting the remaster treatment I'd like to think a God of War 4 showing might be possible but that's probably more likely for the PlayStation Experience.

Absolutely horrendous. The mobile market has killed console gaming and to some degree dedicated handheld gaming in Japan and sadly it hurts everybody because we've lost a lot of great developers due to this crap.

@Sanquine

It's a Game of the Year contender, it's going to get coverage. The amount of b*tching whenever a big game comes out and steals the headlines is laughable. This is like when people complain to sports writers about focusing on the teams in the biggest cities. The bigger the game, the more coverage it's going to get, period. It gets even more attention if it's top quality.

Gamer83 commented on Here's Your First Look at DOOM on PS4:

Has it actually been confirmed to be coming to PS4? After getting burned by the scumbags at SquareEnix and Crystal Dynamics I never get too excited for games that don't have the consoles listed at the end of the advertisement. Especially when it's from a company known to be in MS' back pocket.

Gamer83 commented on Square Enix Shuffles E3 2015 Press Conference ...:

All I care about is Deus Ex Mankind Divided. Eventhough I have an X1, I'm still a$$hurt over the stupidity of taking Tomb Raider exclusive so I will for sure tune out during that. Other than that, SE doesn't really have anything. Final Fantasy is no longer a respectable franchise, and in fact is bordering on becoming a complete joke. Star Ocean sucks and the lead console is PS3 so nothing to see there. Dragon Quest is cool but tough to tell what they're going to do with that franchise and Kingdom Hearts 3 won't be out until 2029 so another game not to give much of a damn about.

I'd have to say I agree with @Splat. After Deus Ex, unless an actual Sleeping Dogs sequel is announced, this will be a snoozefest.

@rjejr
Well it makes sense. Nintendo actually has games worth a damn. SE's show will be nothing but vaporware and one long a$$ kissing between the pathetic scumbags at Crystal Dynamics and MS.

@Johnnycide
I was being sarcastic, but there's not really a way to convey that over the internet. More or less I was relying on the possibility that you've seen some of my comments on past articles so know that while I am actually critical of Sony a lot, I do love the PS brand and many of the games.

I'm still waiting to see something from this game that's at all impressive. People cream themselves every time this game gets mentioned but I think it's simply because it's indie so instant win. The game could end up being great, but I haven't seen anything yet to get me hyped about it.

@Jazzer94
That's what Sony is supposed to do. Just like MS hypes up its games. If the game fails to live up to it it's because of one of two things. Either people set their expectations unrealistically high or the developers failed to deliver anything of substance. That isn't on Sony though.

@rjejr
That summed up Sony's E3 2014 perfectly. It was just not good in comparison to MS and Nintendo. Not to say there were no good announcements. Bloodborne was nice, seeing Uncharted was nice but it needed more. Funny enough, the stuff MS used to get killed for was exactly what Sony did at last year's E3 (while MS' show was ironically strictly about gaming), yet I didn't see anywhere near as much b*tching about it and there should have been. If there's games I don't give a damn about so be it. At a games show it needs to be all about the games and inevitably there will be some that people simply don't care for. But if the focus is all games, the opposite is also true and there's bound to be some that people are very excited about. So cut the crap this year. There's the PS experience at the end of the year where I think it's more appropriate to show stuff like Powers. The focus, again, should obviously be games but if there's some cool non-gaming stuff heading to PlayStation, no better place to announce it than at an event dedicated solely to PlayStation?

@WebHead

That's the way it seems right now. I'm pretty sure a remastered Uncharted Collection will be announced at E3, which is great for people who haven't played those games but does nothing for me. I would, however, be excited if the Gravity Rush rumors are true because that game deserves a second chance on a relevant system.

@Mrskinner

It was a bigger deal in the past because it seemed like sales would dictate where some of the big third party games go. Now, if a major third party game goes exclusive it's usually because it was paid for by one of the big 3.

I wouldn't go that far. I'm as disgusted with Konami as anybody lately, maybe even moreso, but I wouldn't say they won't be missed. I miss the old Capcom and Konami very, very much. Provided me with so many great memories of over the years. It's a shame what the dipsh*ts in suits have done.

@WARDIE

Didn't know that, about Xbox One, thanks. But that's ridiculous you have to go through and do that. Shouldn't be impossible for MS to make it so you can be connected and not have to wait an eternity to play your games. Sony does the same crap with playing your games offline. You have to jump through hoops.

@WARDIE @JaxonH

People like to feel good about their purchases so I can get where they're coming from, though I do say if you're an adult, or even older teen, and still acting that way, some growing up is in order. The internet has definitely changed things. The fanboy wars exist, from what I remember, going back to the 16-bit days, but it was just fun and joking around between friends.

Gamer83 commented on April 2015 NPD: PS4 Slumps to Shock Defeat:

Anybody who thinks MS is just going to surrender the North American market without a fight is crazy. I don't believe the gap is going to be anywhere near as big as it was last gen. In fact I think both will probably onlby be a few millions units at most, as opposed to the 10 mil or so from last gen. But still expect at the end MS will be on the right side of that. People just love the Xbox over here and have a blind loyalty to it which I don't really understand. I own the console because I think it has good exclusives and there's more on the way but if I'm only getting one of the two, PS4 is the better choice in the long run because the first party content will be there and the machine itself isn't a totally annoying piece of sh*t like the Xbox One. It actually moves. The only problem I have is the inconsistency of the store. I can deal with that far more easily than I can waiting an hour for a game to install when I bought a freaking physical copy. PS4 loads the data off the disc almost instantly and you're good to go. No excuse on MS' part for the X1 not to be the same.

This is an example of what I'm saying though. You can downplay exclusives all you want, they do matter. And it's what helped get things turned around for PS3. Sony needs to get its act together on this front, period.

@themcnoisy
I'm just basing it off track record to this point. None of the extra missions in the AC games have ever been worth a damn. If that changes and they start cutting out important story segments to make them pre-order DLC, then I'll be the first to call bs. That hasn't happened yet though and I don't see it happening. Even as stupid as Ubisoft is, I can't see it being that dumb.

@sub12

A lot of people are saying Until Dawn has a 'so bad it's good' vibe. To me it just looks bad. I didn't play Tearaway on Vita so I'm semi hyped for it but I really wish Gravity Rush was the Vita to PS4 port they'd be push. I thought GR was an excellent game and would love to see it get new life on a system people actually like.

@rastamadeus

These days I think AAA is referring to budget more than anything. The Order is certainly not a high quality game but it was a big production. The meaning of these terms is always changing 'casual' was once defined as GTA than the Wii happened and all the sudden GTA is a 'core' gamer's game and Wii Sports is the 'casual' stuff. I wish we'd just call them video games but people need qualifiers.

@WebHead @Savino
Console released late 2013 and at this point only inFamous and Bloodborne have delivered. I definitely agree it's time Sony steps up its game on the exclusive front. Unfortunately the rest of this year doesn't look great and Naughty Dog is going to be later to the party than usual.

The nerve of what though. What's wrong with providing collector's editions for people who want that stuff? I really don't get the issue.

Anyway, I'm voting with my wallet and not buying the game on launch after last year's debacle. Of course millions of others will so whatever. Hopefully it isn't broke again but it's Ubisoft.

Gamer83 commented on CD Projekt Red Reckons It's Already Fixed The ...:

I think if the game has a choppy framerate people have a right to go bonkers. And it's not like it's hard to believe. Plenty of games have had framerate issues on PS4 and sometimes it happens that it runs like sh*t on PS4 compared to X1 which is absolutely unacceptable. If it turns out there's no issue, great, but I don't blame anybody who might be concerned.
