Gamer83 commented on PlayStation Hardware Sales Leave Xbox in the Dust:

@Shaolin

To be fair, the Xbox community isn't much better. I'm still an Xbox fan eventhough I haven't bought the Xbox One yet, but the 'Xbots' that currently fill youtube with their bullsh*t lies and propaganda, and frankly downright stupidity is utterly embarrassing. Unfortunately because you have dipsh*ts like that, you're going to get the same thing on the Sony side because people want to defend their brand of choice. I also don't think the PlayStation fanbase was ever chill. Like every fanbase, you have the normal people who enjoy what the product offers while still not being idiotic enough to pledge allegiance to a giant corporation, but then you have the morons who are the complete opposite and will go out of their way to defend their corporate mother even when it clearly f's up like with what happened to PSN back in 2011. There were actually idiots defending Sony over how that whole thing was handled.

Gamer83 commented on EA Access Exclusive to Xbox One as It Doesn't ...:

@Shaolin

Well, I do think EA sucks, but that's just because since 06, the Madden series has disappointed me massively and that was really the only EA franchise I cared about. :)

For fans of EA though, I could see this being a cool service if done right. Again, I think it's too early to judge one way or another but I think if Sony could've had it on PS4, it should be there. The guys calling the shots there are a little bit up their own rearends lately though. Apparently a few good months after spending the majority of last gen in third place warrants going back to the old, arrogant Sony circa 2006.

Gamer83 commented on EA Access Exclusive to Xbox One as It Doesn't ...:

@Shaolin

My thoughts exactly. The fanboys love this stuff but to me it just does nothing. I don't see any good in the guy in charge saying he doesn't understand people who don't give a crap about indie games, I don't see any good in pushing away away a once really strong partner in Insomniac over bs (don't care what the Sony defenders say about owning the IP) and this most recent statement potentially alienates another company that has been a strong partner in EA. Regardless of what people think of EA, it has many popular franchises and aside from Titanfall, which I'd love to know what MS paid for that, I can't think of any 'important' games that EA hasn't brought to the PlayStation brand.

Gamer83 commented on Talking Point: Would You Pay for an EA Access ...:

I'll wait to see how it plays out on Xbox One before fully judging the service, but I'm not exactly looking to add any more subscriptions considering I already pay $50 a year for PS+ and will be shelling out $60 a year for Gold when I get an Xbox One.

@Dohv
Couldn't agree more with the last sentence. When you look at PS Now, Sony really has no place to talk.

Gamer83 commented on Feature: What Are August 2014's Free PlayStati...:

As always we can keep denying it all we want or we can admit Sony needs to start doing some things differently. Regardless of what anybody thinks of the offerings, frankly I personally don't see what's on Games with Gold for Xbox One as being any better than what's on PS4's PS+ but when you get massive complaints month after month you'd think at a certain point the company would try to fix things. Sony keeps compounding the problem though. We're at a point now where what would it hurt to throw Killzone or the horrendous Thief or Knack up there? Great games? Absolutely not but they are 'AAA' and would squash some of the whining. At a certain point here Sony needs to start going one AAA, one indie for the PS4's PS+. People will disagree, that's fine, but it is what it is. Just because the internet (particularly the loyal PS fanboys on the internet) and the Sony higher ups love indies doesn't mean every single person who owns a PS4 does. Lately there has been more positivity surrounding the Xbox One. If Sony wants to lose momentum, that's fine, I don't own stock in the company, I don't work there, so go ahead and do whatever. I just don't see the point of squandering so much momentum because of the refusal to make simple easy fixes. One AAA game to go with an indie game each month isn't going to hurt. Hyping up AAA games, particularly exclusives, isn't going to hurt but Sony refuses to do this. I'm sorry but when 'no games' is getting thrown around a lot, you have to do something to try and change that.

Already pre-ordered on PSN so I wouldn't be getting a physical copy even if it came to NA. Usually I prefer physical copies of games over digital but I'm such a huge inFamous fan that as soon as Sony made it available for pre-purchase on PSN, I spent the $15. Eagerly awaiting the release of this game.

Pre-ordered at Gamestop, all the in-game pre-order bonuses are pretty damn cool. Looking forward to playing this one, the two LBP games I've played (1 and Vita) I really got hooked on so 3 should be no different.

I can't say I blame EA, it's just funny it'd choose not to go against CoD and Destiny but will still release it's entirely horrendous NBA game against 2K's, day and date. I think even against better competition, Hardline would still sell decently. Live 15 doesn't have a chance,.

@rastamadeus

Well that's fine, I think the gameplay in ND's productions are very well done also, but to each their own, I'm not trying to convince anybody to agree with me and I'm certainly not going to 'abuse' anybody for having a differing opinion.

Just to put it out there, I'm no fanboy of any of these 3 companies. I prefer PlayStation but I criticize all 3 of these companies equally. If anything I've been harsher about Sony lately.

I'll be mostly playing MLB The Show and the Destiny beta but I may buy the R&C collection. The second and third games were my favorites in the series and from the review it seems like those two games were converted well at least.

@Godsire-

Agreed. I'm actually a huge fan of TLoU, and while a sequel could be cool, I've always believed ND's best work is when it's something new. I think for the game after Uncharted 4, I'd prefer a new IP, but if it's going to return to an older one, a new Jak & Daxter would be welcome.

Gamer83 commented on Feature: Three Reasons Why PS4's Ratchet & Cla...:

@adf86

Guerrilla probably wants to go away from Killzone and Sucker Punch probably wants a break inFamous. I wouldn't blame either studio and frankly I'd welcome new IPs because I think both are great development studios and one of the things that I think separates Naughty Dog is its allowed to flex its creative muscles on new IPs quite often, it wouldn't hurt Sony to let Guerilla and Sucker Punch mix it up a little bit on PS4 either. Of course I'd still want to see another inFamous and Killzone on the console but would be totally fine waiting until later in the generation if it means something new from these teams in the middle of the gen.

Gamer83 commented on Feature: Three Reasons Why PS4's Ratchet & Cla...:

@adf86

I actually really liked Resistance 1 and 3. In fact the original was the only truly great game on PS3 until later 2007 when Heavenly Sword, R&C Tools of Destruction and Uncharted hit. The thing is, while R&C used to be great, it's really fallen now, not even Into the Nexus was good if we're going to be completely honest. I'd like to give Insomniac the benefit of the doubt but I get the feeling the studio is tired of the series and nobody gains anything from Sony continuing to partner with them on it. I'd rather see a less well known studio looking to make a name for itself take over and see what they can bring to the table. Sometimes a shakeup is good. I think in the long run the best thing for Halo was it being turned over to 343i and Bungie benefits too as it gets to move onto newer challenges. I'm not so sure R&C is as big a deal as it was back around 2007 so I don't see how it would've hurt to turn the series over to a group like Sanzaru Games. Insomniac is in MS' back pocket these days anyway. I'd rather have a developer with closer ties to Sony working on a new R&C game. I want to see this series be important again but I don't think a movie nobody gives a damn about, and a movie tie-in by Insomniac is the way to do it.

Gamer83 commented on Feature: The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Two: Th...:

What I found interesting is that as I wonder around Old Russia I'm actually having much more fun joining up with random groups of people and taking down enemies than I thought I would. Maybe it's because it's a beta that there are less people which means less chance of dbags ruining the experience but what I was concerned about was that going from story mission to story mission some jerk would enter the game and start firing at me causing me to start over at the beginning of levels or what not but it's not like that at all. The game has that typical Bungie feel which means the shooting is as solid and addicting as ever but now instead of just playing the single player and maybe dabbling in competitive multi from time to time, I could see myself having a lot of fun teaming with other random people and taking down bosses or clearing large groups of enemies. I really didn't expect that part of the game to be a highlight. I'll wait until the final version to make a full judgement on that but so far I have to tip my cap to Bungie, everything is really well done.

@eaglebob345

Well for one, 2K15 is a definite buy, I'm a huge NBA fan and those games are among the best each year so it's an easy purchase. I also know I'll like AC and CoD Advanced Warfare I'm taking a flyer on because it seems like the most interesting game in the series since MW 1. I'd love to be looking forward to The Evil Within because I like to support new IPs, that said, the new IP has to be something that I can be sure I'll like. Destiny for example, or The Last of Us in 2013, I knew from the start those were going to be good. Mikami's, however, haven't always clicked with me and while I was initially excited about The Evil Within, recent stuff I've read has me thinking it's not the kind of game I want. If it comes out and gets high praise, I'll give it a try though.

Gamer83 commented on Feature: Three Reasons Why PS4's Ratchet & Cla...:

The last great R&C was a Crack in Time. Into the Nexus was a disappointing game that was very short and everything besides that has been mediocre to **** poor. The fact this game ties into a movie nobody asked for really doesn't give me confidence so eventhough I used to like this series, can't say I'm looking forward to this. And Sony's got the wrong team on it, it's clear Insomniac has just been phoning in these releases and Sunset Overdrive is all it cares about now anyway, couldn't even be bothered to send somebody to Sony's conference to maybe spend a few minutes talking about this game. I'd like to see some other studio get a shot at it, if this upcoming game and movie don't ruin the franchise.

@get2sammyb

This is all fine and dandy but Sony needs to stop God damn focusing so much on people who previously owned a 360 or Wii and start trying to get some of these games to those of us who have supported them each gen. An Uncharted Collection is great but not if it comes at the expense of 4 coming out in 2015.

I was looking forward to it, then started reading some more recent previews that weren't exactly glowing. With Destiny releasing a month before and Assassin's Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, CoD: Advanced Warfare and NBA 2K15 all around the same time I'll probably skip The Evil Within unless reviews are really, really good.

Gamer83 commented on PSN Offline for Some as Bungie Deploys Destiny...:

@LDXD

I have no doubts about the quality of the game, Bungie makes my favorite shooters. I do, however, have serious doubts about Sony's servers and that could screw up the experience. For a game like Destiny which is going to be huge, I'd like to think Sony will get it right, but this happens to PSN every time without fail. I could just barely tolerate when the service was free but now that they're charging $50, beyond unacceptable, especially when it's direct competition runs perfectly fine. I never had an issue with XBL. I'm mostly into offline single player campaigns so in the grand scheme of things, provided developers don't go completely away from those, this stuff should mostly be a non-issue. It's just a shame you can't count on Sony for games like Destiny.

This is an absolute nightmare. I can not wait for the explanation on this one. They charge for online now but refuse to improve their network. I'd love if one of those Sony corporate ass-kissing clowns at IGN would mention something next time they interview a rep but that will never happen.

Been this way for years, I'm not a big online gamer, so, I accept it... Still pathetic though. It'd be one thing if this was a sleeper online only game nobody expected would be popular, but we all knew, and especially Sony knew, Destiny would be huge. Absolutely ridiculous.

Gamer83 commented on Talking Point: Why PS4's Christmas Offering Is...:

@rastamadeus

Halo is a great series, that's why people enjoy it.

Anyway, I'd say dreadful is pushing it a bit. Exclusives are obviously important but being the console with the best version of multiplat games like Destiny and Far Cry 3 is hugely important too. The exclusive lineup has to be better in 2015 though, I'm giving Sony a pass for this year. But The Order 1886, Bloodborne and Uncharted 4 all HAVE to be 2015 and the first two better damn well hit in Q1. I also expect at least a few more than just those three. Now people will typically respond with 'it makes no sense to show every game you have,' or that it's unrealistic to expect a company to release a game in every franchise it has so early in the generation. Of course that's the case, but what people who love to defend Sony seen to fail to understand is that I and others who think like me are not asking Sony to do that, but it needs to stop playing the cards so close to the chest and show a little bit more of what it has in the way of first party games and get some big ones out. As @voodoo341 pointed out, we can try to downplay things all we want, but when articles are constantly written about a console's lineup being weak that means there is a problem.

Gamer83 commented on Talking Point: Why PS4's Christmas Offering Is...:

Yeah, definitely wouldn't call it 'poor' but it's not much more than average. Hopefully 2015 will be much better. Truth is the only games for the rest of 2014 I'm really hyped about are Destiny, NBA 2K15, Far Cry 4 and Sunset Overdrive. There's others I plan to buy but none that I would say I'm really excited to play like I am Uncharted 4, Halo 5, Zelda Wii U, Batman: Arkham Knight, Witcher 3, Quantum Break, etc.

I like the series so fine by me. Hopefully 5 will be a little more inspired than IV though. I want it to go back to more of the gang roots from 1 and 2. The second is still easily the best in the series and one of the best open world games last gen.

@get2sammyb

That's kind of why I've been preaching against cross-gen. I understand from a business perspective that throwing a 160 mil userbase out the window is probably insane given today's gaming market. At the same time, developers have to move on eventually and both the PS4 and Xbox One are selling at a good rate. It's too late to lament the decision at this point but hopefully NetherRealm's next game (I'd guess Injustice 2?) will be PS4, X1, PC. That's a ways off though and I'd be lying if I said I'm not still hyped big time for this game as I loved MK 9.

Tekken has been my favorite 3D fighter for a while. I just don't like the series is so hit and miss lately. I loved 1-3, enjoyed Tag 1 but 4 sucked. Then 5 was good, then 6 was entirely mediocre. They did rebound with Tag 2, so we'll see what happens with 7. Can't really tell anything from this trailer. Hopefully more news incoming at TGS.

I actaully preferred the first Jak & Daxter to any of the Crash games, but then Naughty Dog took the series in a direction I wasn't fond of. I'm glad they're talking about bringing back some 'legacy' franchises though. Syphon Filter has been on the shelf for a while and it would be awesome if the long overdue sequel to Logan's Shadow is announced for PS4 soon.

Not going to get too excited until its officially confirmed for PS4 (you would think it's coming but MS has shown a propensity to spend on third party games lately). Regardless, hopefully it's much better than 6 which I thought was a letdown after 5. Tag 2 was great though.

Gamer83 commented on Talking Point: Are Publishers Taking Pre-Order...:

@SecondServing

I've always hated seeing big releases (or ones with potential to be big) go exclusive if it wasn't published and funded by Sony, MS or Nintendo. So something like Dead Rising, MS went to Capcom, paid the money to fund the project and publish it. Don't like it, but it is what it is. Something like Titanfall is just EA taking the moneyhat and it hardly paid off. I bet if you asked somebody at EA off the record to give a real response, even they would acknowledge that was a foolish decision. No reason to limit yourself if you don't have to. With Sunset Overdrive, MS is picking up the tab. Sony is picking up the tab for Bloodborne, so it's different.

Gamer83 commented on Sony: PS4's Christmas Lineup Compares 'Very, V...:

@eLarkos

A one off with a company you've worked closely with in the past isn't going to kill Sony. It has a poor holiday lineup, you fund Sunset Overdrive while other developers get their games together for next year. I'm not saying it's something the company should dabble in all the time, the fact is it has built up a good stable of IPs over the years, I don't see how it hurts to do something like this once early in the generation. MS actually has a good number of IPs as well (in its infinite wisdom it chooses to avoid many of them), but still dabbles in stuff like this. When I see Sony using its limiated funds to make devices like VR headsets I can't help but wonder if maybe that money isn't better spent on working with a developer that has made some of PlayStation's biggest hits. I understand Sony's decision, doesn't mean I agree with it.
