Gamer83 commented on Sucker Punch Wants Its Next PS4 Exclusive to D...:

Make the game a little long, give the side missions a bit more depth, and the open world a little more 'life' and it'll take a great series to the next level. The multiple protagonist idea is interesting and Rockstar proved with GTA V it can work very well. I definitely wouldn't mind seeing that.

Gamer83 commented on Talking Point: Does the PS4 Really Need Big Ho...:

As far as the sales it depends on the franchise. LBP 3 is popular but it's not in the same league as a Halo or Uncharted. Neither of those games would get overlooked during the holidays like Sunset Overdrive (new IP) or LBP 3 did. Halo will probably win the holiday season for MS in North America. Granted worldwide is the bigger picture, and of course having solid exclusives over the course of the year is nicer than packing them all into one time frame which MS seems to have a habit of doing. I think it's important for every company to have a big holiday exclusive though. Sony's gotten by without one the last couple years but that can't keep happening.

Decided to buy this and I'm only just a few hours in. What I've played so far seems interesting enough but it's a good thing this game is relatively cheap. I probably wouldn't have been happy had I paid $20. For what it is though it seems like a good time.

Good to know when I do get around to buying this, the little bugs will have been ironed out. Aside from that unfortunate game-breaking bug that was fixed fairly quickly, this release went a lot smoother than other recent big releases.

@get2sammyb

Imo, it was one of the series that helped turn the PS3 around. It'll be interesting to see what happens when 4 does release. I'm thinking it'll top the others in sales but Uncharted has never missed the holidays before. If it is actually a spring/summer 2016 release (and I hope it is because I'm sick of waiting) it will be intriguing to see how it effects sales, if it all. The series is established enough that it probably won't make a huge difference but you never know.

@rastamadeus

CoD is obviously a huge series but it's already so well established I don't think a deal with one of the manufacturers or another really makes a difference. It's going to sell on Xbox One what it's going to sell on Xbox One regardless of whether Sony has the marketing deal or not. If Sony has the deal for Star Wars, then that's a bigger deal, even if the game isn't going to sell as well as Black Ops 3.

As for Uncharted's delay, it isn't good for Sony. I know you don't like the series, which is fine, but it is big here in the States and to reach 6 mil it has to sell decent elsewhere also.

Gamer83 commented on Rumour: People Are Saying That Sony Will Promo...:

We can pretend it won't be missed but the fact is Uncharted 4 not being there hurts the holiday lineup and a CoD co-marketing deal doesn't make up for it. Frankly, nothing short of God of War 4 (not happening) can make up for it.

Gamer83 commented on Review: Mortal Kombat X (PlayStation 4):

There's characters that you will have to pay for and you have to use the stupid mobile app to get some character skins if you really want them, other than that, the game is packed with content and even things being charged for like easy fatalities can be earned through playing the game so I'm not going to kill NRS over that stuff. This is a well made game, probably the best MK from a pure gameplay stand point. It doesn't have the same impact as 9 did though, because 9 saved the series from irrelevancy.

@Punished_Boss_84

A DQ spinoff and the announcement of a new entry in an RPG series that has been going downhill for a while... I'd rather have Rise of the Tomb Raider.

@WebHead
It's a business after all, so I'm not surprised, just disappointed. I'd love to know what MS offered them for this deal. If it was any other company I'd say it has to be insane to avoid the brand that has the series' most fans but this is SquareEnix, a company that thinks a port of a PC port is a 'huge' announcement, so it wouldn't shock me at all if it was a modest deal at best and SE just took it because it's SE.

@TVRFLY
Tomb Raider Definitive not only sold better on PS4 than Xbox One but before the reboot originally released on last gen consoles in 2013 it was advertised almost as an Xbox 360 exclusive and still sold better on PS3! That's why it's an outrageously idiotic decision, but MS' $$$ are apparently worth more than those of SE's, and the Tomb Raider franchise's, real fanbase. Now, Sony pulled the same bs with Street Fighter V, which is equally annoying. I'm positive Capcom will find a work around for that though, it always does. Some kind of SF V Turbo or something. I'm not, however, confident that Rise of the Tomb Raider will show up on PS4, at least not in a timely manner. Kind of funny though, that move was made mostly to go head-to-head with Uncharted, now with Uncharted 4 pushed into 2016 SE looks even more dumb. What game do you think a lot of disappointed Uncharted fans might've looked towards this holiday? It'd be hilarious, if it wasn't so stupid.

@sub12
I agree, I think MS has a great thing going with the Forza Motorsport series and now the Horizon subseries. I was actually a huge fan of PGR so I certainly miss the series but I can't complain too much when the Horizon games are 2-for-2 with delivering what I want in a racing game and the Motorsport games are usually good sim racers although I still prefer Gran Turismo for that.

@sub12
Unfortunately PGR 4 sold like complete sh*t, that's what killed that franchise. From a gamer's perspective it's always nice to have more options but with Forza being the much more popular series, I can see why MS made the business decision it did.

Good for the PS4. March 2015 was probably my favorite month of this gen so far. With DmC: Definitive, RE: Revelations 2, Bloodborne, MLB The Show and Toukiden it seemed like there was something great pretty much every week.

I'm probably alone in this but I think it's rather lame when these talking heads kiss their competitors' a$$ses. I'm not saying go around and hate, just focus on your own brand. All the rearend kissing just seems insincere to me. Nintendo generally shies away from that, which I don't think is a bad thing.

@JesWood13
I could see MS partnering with From Software at some point but I don't think it would be for a Dark Souls game. From Software is now at the point where the name itself, like Naughty Dog, can sell a product. Dark Souls has a good following on both PS and Xbox so I'd imagine From would want to keep that series multiplat.

Part of the problem is a lot of the games are cross-generation as well. I'm not saying it'd make a huge difference, because I really don't know, but it would've been interesting to see what would've happened had games like Resident Evil Revelations 2 and Dragon Quest Heroes were only available for the current gen consoles.

Gamer83 commented on Mortal Kombat X Has the Most Nefarious of PS4 ...:

Loved MK 9 and Injustice, will really enjoy MK X from what I've played and I'm a fan of NetherRealm studios, but no matter how you slice this, it's a bad look. Even with all the content on the disc, they are charging for the Kombat Pack and Goro is only available now if you pre-ordered (surely he'll be $5 or $6 down the line). The fatalities don't actually effect whether you can win a match or not so I this isn't like paying for a super weapon or something in shooter. Can't really kill NetherRealm for doing what a lot of other studios do but it is a bad look.

Where's the option for 'yes, but I wouldn't subscribe.' I generally don't care for EA's games, outside of Mass Effect and I'd be buying the game on disc anyway so EA Access does nothing for me but I think you do have to let the consumer decide, even if I don't like where this could all lead. As @rastamadeus pointed out, it's inevitable.

@themcnoisy
Part of the reason I haven't bought the game yet is the graphics. I'm not a graphics whore, but I'm not paying a premium price for a port of a portable game that really doesn't look that great. If it was in the $30-$40 range, I'd probably have bought it day one. Crisis Core was a good game and this seems to borrow some elements.

There was a time anything Final Fantasy would sell 1 mil within a few days. I'm going to be interested to see what impact FF XV has. You'd think it would be a big seller but a lot of people hated the XIII series.

It's obvious something happened. Nobody but those involved will ever know the full truth. But it's worse for Konami than it is Kojima. He will find work. Konami on the other hand has become an even bigger joke than it already was. The stupidity running rampant at the top of these companies is unreal.

I meant moved on in regards to waiting for the Plus version. The game has had enough sales by now that anybody interested has just spent the cash. Only reason for Sony to release the Plus version at this point is so somebody with too much time on their hands doesn't sue for false advertising or something.

Well, I'm looking forward to it. Deus Ex: Human Revolution was one of my favorite games last generation. Nice of the morons at SE to actually fund this and it's going to be on PS4 as well. After that ill-advised ios Deus Ex I wasn't sure what was going to happen with this franchise. Now just stay out of Eidos Montreal's way and let the studio do what it does.

Gamer83 commented on Not All of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's DLC Is Free:

Unlike EA or Activision, the best examples I can use, the people in charge at CD Projekt Red are intelligent enough to know how to market their game while getting the majority on their side. They know 'DLC' is usually frowned upon (unless it's from Nintendo of course because as you know if you've ever visited NLife, Nintendo's sh*t don't stink), so they were going on and on about how we'll get these nice little pieces of DLC for nothing. And to be fair, I'll give CDPR that it could easily charge for the useless pieces of armor and other cosmetic nonsense that Capcom, Ubisoft, Rockstar, Naughty Dog, EA and pretty much everybody else charge for, so thanks for not pulling the same bs in regards to that. But to act like you're above paid-for DLC then to turn right around and create paid-for DLC just does seem ridiculous. Again, if it's good content, I'll buy it, there's no doubt the main game will be awesome and this is a very good studio so I'm confident in the quality of what it will deliver. I'm not hopping on the 'this is how it's done' bandwagon though. To me, it's the first step towards EA territory. Everybody will say 'no, they'd never do that.' But next thing you know, there will be DLC - cosmetic nonsense - that is technically 'free' but locked behind a season pass.

Gamer83 commented on 2K Games Restores NBA 2K14 Servers, Career Sav...:

It's utterly ridiculous that it even happened in the first place. But this practice should be expected from sports games going forward. I always buy The Show every year but held off on a day one purchase for 15, after reading what is happening with 14 I'm content to spend my money on other games now. Same can be said of NBA 2K and Madden. Only reason I got Madden 15 was it came free with the Xbox One I bought last August. I think as much as it hurts me to do so, I'm going to avoid purchasing sports games until this nonsense gets sorted out.

@get2sammyb
Exactly. I'm actually a fan of CDPR's work so if the content is worth it I'll pay. Hell I bought the season pass for Injustice when it hit PS3 because I like Netherrealm. CDPR is well within its right to charge for any extra content it makes but I'm within my rights to be disappointed they're taking steps into EA territory after previously acting better than everybody else. And it's funny, if this were EA doing the exact same, the hypocrites would be up in arms.
