Gamer83 commented on What a Load of Rubbish: BioWare Can't Say When...:

These companies backing MS in favor of the best selling console are so f'ing stupid. It's EA so it doesn't shock me but still. This is almost as dumb as telling the majority of the Tomb Raider purchasers to 'f off, MS' money is better than yours.' Yeah, it's business. But not backing the top dog, and abandoning the userbase that supports you the most is not smart business.

Gamer83 commented on Batman: Arkham Knight Delays Its Vigilante Jus...:

@Tasuki

DriveClub delayed 11 months and still a broken mess on launch. The Order was delayed and it did nothing good for the game. Bloodborne announced at E3 for early 2015, hit its release date and is the best exclusive and could be argued best game on either PS4 or X1 to this point. So yes, in fact, a good studio can and will deliver on time. There was no way Rocksteady was ever going to hit that October release date last year, but it is a good development house and there's no reason it should be missing June of this year. This delay is so they can set up another delay to be announced at E3 so WB can sell remasters and that's bullcrap. Speculation on my part sure, but given how this gen has played out, it's not unfair speculation and just because you don't agree with the anger doesn't mean its 'whining.' I try to be respectful of other people's opinons around here. I don't go on here cursing out other users or calling them some words that I saw I was called the other day that I won't repeat for fear of a ban. I'm getting a little sick of not getting the same courtesy. Don't have to agree with me, I'm all for debate, but the cyber bullying and baiting by people is starting to tick me off because there's no way to be able to respond like I should be allowed to (probably the only good thing about youtube is the lack of censorship). I'm not leaving the site on my own so if you and others want me gone to get rid of the 'whining' use the ban hammer.

@whywai88

If Zelda makes it out this year I'd say that's the game that has a better chance than Halo 5. Halo is my favorite franchise but I can't remember the last time a Halo game pulled in a good number of overall Game of the Year awards or the last time it really deserved to. It might've been Halo 2 but only Halo 1, for its time, was truly deserving of the honor. 2004 also had MGS 3 and GTA San Andreas, which were infinitely better than Halo 2. I think Halo 5 is going to be good, but given 343's track record I'm not ready to give the benefit of the doubt for a GOTY contender yet, even if you want to play the media conspiracy card. Halo gets high scores but then when it comes time for the awards other games usually overshadow it, and in most cases, deservedly so.

Gamer83 commented on DriveClub Developer Evolution Studios to Lose ...:

It sucks because MotorStorm was pretty decent. I wish Sony had let Polyphony move on from last gen, made GT 6 its big PS4 racing game and given MotorStorm one more shot on a console that has been placed in a much better spotlight than PS3 ever was. Who knows, maybe the series never would've taken off, unfortunately now I don't think we'll ever to get to find out. Always hate to hear about people losing their jobs but the good thing about the game industry is it does seem like its one of the few where people can bounce back fairly quick, especially if they're very talented. Hopefully Sony doesn't shutter Evolution. Even if it never gets a shot at another 'AAA' game I'm sure it could still contribute in other ways. We know it has a hell of a graphics engine.

@get2sammyb

Cool, looking forward to the review. After hearing from some friends who somehow got advance copies, I'm thinking I may actually trade in The Order and give it a go. Sounds brutal but at the same time when a game receives this much acclaim, I want to play it.

@themcnoisy

I was never really big into SE's games to be honest, because I'm not a huge JRPG fan but yeah I hope for the sake of PlayStation fans who keep supporting SE despite getting battered around by it that a consistent flow of good PS4 games from its development teams happens. This company ties itself up in so many different games though. Announce one, start to delveop it, then stop development halfway through announce another game that isn't even off the ground yet... it's freaking ridiculous and not efficient at all. FF XV should've been out years ago and KH 3 shouldn't be too far off into the future. Instead, we'll be lucky if FF XV releases in 2016 and KH 3 in 2025.

@Jairo_MC

Both those bonus episodes seemed like a bit like throw aways but I'd say I agree that The Struggle was good fun. I like stealth a lot so I enjoyed the Little Miss episode also but I can certainly get how it would grate on some peoples' nerves. I will say, it's a good thing the checkpoints were fairly reasonable because if failure resulted in starting each level at the beginning, I'd have lost my mind.

@themcnoisy

I would just think if you're a good business person common sense says look at the numbers and the numbers will show where the SE fanbase is. It's mostly on PlayStation and it's even much larger on Nintendo than on the Xbox. I'd love to know what the moneyhat was that they accepted from MS because they cost themselves a number of sales.

@kyleforrester87

Well, I have to admit I'm still mind f'd by the scumbag move to take Tomb Raider away from the fans who supported it the most. SE doesn't seem to do much for PlayStation or Nintendo fans though. In Capcom's case I don't think it's a matter of wanting to anger people, it's simply a terribly run company.

Gamer83 commented on Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 (PlayStat...:

I'd say the review and score are spot on. Hopefully the season pass issue gets sorted out. This is the best RE, imo, since the classics (which due to many factors will never be matched) it's a shame a problem that shouldn't exist can overshadow it.

My experience though, having a disc copy, has been nothing but positive and I haven't even got into Raid mode yet but I loved it in Revelations 1. If it's half as good this time I'll be sinking plenty of hours in this game.

@sinalefa
There's no way that's the official release date. With the way WB has been delaying games, I'll be shocked if this is on shelves in June. If I had to guess, at E3 Rocksteady will say 'we need a little more time' and push it to October then when that gets close it'll be moved to spring 2016 but to make up for it we get an awesome remastered collection.

One thing is certain, there's no way in hell that MK X, The Witcher 3 and Arkham Knight all release before August and given how this gen has turned out so far, even less of a chance all 3 of those make it to shelves in 2015.

Gamer83 commented on Rumour: Holy Remaster, Batman! Arkham Duo Set ...:

Of course after my last comment Arkham Knight is delayed, and I'm sure it won't be the last time, so they can push their remastered garbage. Worst start to a new console gen, ever. I take back all the nonsense I spewed about Wii U's first years at least with that console there were exclusives worth a damn. All the studios Sony has, all the third party supprt and the best games are PS3 games. Ridiculous.

Gamer83 commented on Batman: Arkham Knight Delays Its Vigilante Jus...:

Of corse it's delayed, why the hell not? Just like The Witcher 3 has been delayed a billion times, and Uncharted has been pushed back the games I was most looking forward to. And of course this one comes right after another damn remaster is announced. MK X is next to be delayed, I say before March ends, but maybe they can 'remaster' 9 to do us all a favor. I'm done getting hyped.

@john_c

How exactly is a legitimate complaint considered being 'entitled?' Just because it's not a big deal to you doesn't mean it isn't for many other people. Fortunately, it's an issue that can be fixed, but one that shouldn't exist in the first place.

@JaxonH

Physical copies released at retail on Tuesday in North America.

@get2sammyb

I think I jumped the gun a bit with the whole character hopping thing. Imo, the co-op experience in RE hasn't been very good but I'm glad I was wrong. I initially wasn't sure Rockstar could pull off going between 3 characters and it also proved me wrong so maybe in the future I'll start giving developers more of a benefit of the doubt before I try something. I did think based on history there was reason to be wary about RE though. Capcom hasn't always pulled things off in a good way. I think the Revelations team is definitely onto something, however, and if 7 is also going to have a focus on two charcters, hopefully what's in Revelations 2 gets copy and pasted over.

@Bad-MuthaAdebisi

Which is reasonable. And with Uncharted 4, the only guarantee to be a great game, pushed to 2016 there isn't really much to look forward to. I don't think they need a big game to make the end of the year look nice as there are several B-level PS exclusives in Japan that could be brought over and give us a nice holiday lineup. Unfortunately those games will never come over and the best holiday games will be a Vita port and an Uncharted Collection. Not too impressive but it is what it is. I know some will say Sony could have a really nice surprise for E3, but all I kept hearing last year was 'wait for this show, wait for that show' and each one passed with nothing special. All I ask is Sony works with Sega and Namco to get Yakuza Zero and God Eater 2 in the West. It wouldn't stop all the complaining but it should quell some because those are quality games.

Gamer83 commented on Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode...:

Nice review @get2sammyb. I agree on a lot of points. Went for the retail copy and already did two playthroughs and I'm happy to say I was surprised how much I ended up liking the game depsite my concerns going in. The charachter hopping was no where near as intrusive or annoying as it seemed when reading reviews. There were some pretty intense sequences and the major boss battles were great.

On the first playthrough I got the bad ending, it did suck but that's the point. I should've been expecting that because old RE games used to have throw out multiple endings. The good ending sure wraps it up nicely and sets up well for the sequel or maybe even to tie into RE 7. The boss battle here was particularly awesome.

I really like this Revelations spinoff series and hope to see it continue. Yes, it's on a smaller budget but sometimes less is more and I think that particularly benefits this genre. Easily my favorite RE since 4, in some ways I like it better. I won't even get started how much better it is than 5 and 6. It was also nice catching up again with Claire, since RE 2 she's been my favorite video game heroine. Her chapter in Episode 3 was my favorite. Hopefully after this, Capcom doesn't put her on another long hiatus as far as the games go.

Sorry for the long post, but I loved this game. Glad I didn't do something stupid like cancel my pre-order, which I had considered after reading earlier reviews.

Gamer83 commented on Uh Oh, Watch PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne Take Ove...:

@adf86

We do know enough about the rest of the year that right now it's fair to say it's not exciting. If they have a surprise for E3 that does actually change everything, great, but I'm not expecting it so I'm they bring over some of the Japanese games they have that are good. We are getting Dragon Quest Heroes but that alone isn't enough to make the lineup stand out.

In regards to Bloodborne, it would've helped if Killzone, DriveClub, LBP 3 and The Order, basically all the big exclusives except inFamous: Second Son, had turned out to be great games. That's not the case unfortunately and with The Order being a recent disappointment and the announcement that the one game we all knew was going to be good has been pushed into 2016 it puts extra pressure on this one. Every game has its problems, no argument, but the great ones have minor problems easy to overlook. It's not 1996 anymore and 40 second load times isn't a minor issue in a game that prides itself on making the player have to retry segments a lot. I don't think it's a flaw that ruins things on the whole but it is something that will bother some people and rightly so.

@XFsWorld

Yeah, I mean, losing a lot in itself doesn't sound fun. The fun comes from having your skills tested though. How many games today hold your hand, sometimes 80% of the way through? Too many. And some games eventhough they're not telling you what to do are just stupidly easy. So, I think it's a plus that the Souls games, and I'd assume Bloodborne, push the gamer to improve their skills. As long as you're not losing the cheap way, nothing wrong with brutal difficulty.

@BertoFlyingFox

Pretty much this. I think it will be pretty hard for this game to suck, because going on track record it doesn't seem From Software is very capable of making a game that sucks. It is something that could severely hurt what many are hoping is the first must-have PS4 game. We'll see. Reviewers did give Battlefield 4 a pass for broken garbage and the same could be said of The Master Chief Collection. So if everything else about the game is awesome except the time spent looking at the loading screen, hopefully reviews reflect that.

Gamer83 commented on Uh Oh, Watch PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne Take Ove...:

It would be awesome if just ONE of these PS4 exclusives could go smoothly. 40 second load times for a game that revels in kicking the player's a$$? Absolutely unacceptable, especially for this game that is the only big exclusive coming to the console the rest of the year. Sony needs to shape the hell up. This early part of the year with MS having nothing was a huge opportunity and it seems like it will be completely wasted.

Gamer83 commented on God of War III Remastered's PS4 Price May Make...:

@JLPick

If it was God of War 1, 2, 3 and Ascension for $40 or $50, now we're talking. That to me would be as compelling a collection as the Master Chief one and could've built some nice hype for the GoW 4. As it is right now, one game with no upgrades... pointless. I guess I'd recommend it to anybody who's never played the game before but compared to the collections we see for other big series, one game, with what doesn't seems like much work going into it, just screams lazy.

@ToOGoodOfAPlaya

Yeah, how many retro-stylized sidescrolling indie games are we going to see? I get that indie devs have a little more freedom but I think too many are getting a pass for not actually being that creative. People wouldn't shut up about Outlast, I played it, liked it at first and then quickly became bored and realized it wasn't anything special. And not being able to use weapons isn't exactly innovative, frankly it was just a stupid idea for that game. Didn't make it fun, imo, just incredibly annoying. Give me a 'B' level game like Resident Evil Revelations 2 or The Evil Within or Alien Isolation any day over that nonsense. Contrast was another that got hyped. I actually found it somewhat enjoyable and there is a great game hidden inside of it but there's lots of flaws and I didn't think anything too out of the ordinary as far as gameplay. But it's indie so it's awesome...

I also want to mention, I have nothing against sidescrollers. But damn I already played the hell out of 8 and 16 bit sidescrollers two decades ago, at least use the power of the modern consoles. I'm not a graphics whore and can look past it for a truly great game but at the same time it would be nice to see these newer consoles used to their potential. Sidescrollers, since they're not usually games that are taxing on a console, could look really beautiful on the PS4 and Xbox One.

@rjejr

It's also getting MK X. PS3, 360 as well, aren't finished yet, but imo that's not necessarily a good thing. I know it sucks for people who haven't or don't want to upgrade, but time moves on. PS3 and 360 both had nice, long shelf lives, now it's time they fade into the sunset.

Gamer83 commented on Soapbox: Has It Just Been a Bad Week for Games...:

Honestly, even as pessimistic as I am I didn't think it was all that bad. I felt bad for the people at Evolution but sadly it was expected. As far as Konami, I just looked it as the demise of another legendary name in the industry. Unfortunately another Japanese one, outside of Nintendo and the smaller, niche companies, the last two gens have not been kind to Japanese gaming companies and a lot of it is because of imbeciles at the top trying to 'Westernize' games that didn't have to be. I don't know a single person who asked for Final Fantasy to become a straight up action game, Silent Hill to become whatever the hell it is (things were looking up but you can forget about it now) and the mainline Resident Evil games to turn into a mix of Gears of War and Call of Duty.

@Kohaku

It sure seems that way. Some are no brainers (TLoU, GTA V and the inevitable Uncharted Collection were guaranteed money), some it's to try and bring the game to a new audience like Tearaway Unfolded and the rumored Gravity Rush. And then some seem pointless, like this one. Maybe I'll be wrong and it actually ends up selling very well but I don't remember this game being as well regarded as the first two were and while people are begging Sony for an Uncharted Collection there hasn't been any outcry for GoW 3 that I noticed.

Gamer83 commented on Rumour: Konami Power Struggle Leads to Hideo K...:

What unbelievable stupidity. I love how this industry is getting f'ed by idiots in suits who have no clue, nor do they give a damn about gaming. Absolute imbeciles. It'll be interesting to see where Kojima ends up. I'm sure one of the big 3 would love to have him. I'd love if Sony could sign him and his team up and nab MGS and Silent Hill in the inevitable Konami firesale. Just going off what I've seen in recent years, Konami has absolutely zero talent outside of Kojima Productions so this isn't like when Miyamoto steps away from Nintendo they'll keep on making great games. MGS is nothing without him and this was the only group with a slight chance of saving Silent Hill. Such a shame seeing legendary studios like Konami, Capcom and SquareEnix get destroyed over stuff so easily avoided. Let these masterminds work their magic and stay the hell out of the way. Kojima is the reason these scumbags are even in a position to be running around with all this power. Sadly, none of them use it responsibly or for the good of anybody. So dumb. You don't see Bethesda treating Todd Howard and his team like this, because it knows better. And unlike Konami, Bethesda has actual other good games outside of Elder Scrolls and Fallout. It seems like aside from Nintendo, most major Japanese gaming companies are run by complete morons.
