Gamer83 commented on People Really Aren't Happy with August's PlayS...:

@Mrskinner
Well, what do people expect? They're not going to make recent hits like Ratchet & Clank or Uncharted 4 'free' this soon. And if they put something like Killzone or Assassin's Creed IV people will still b*tch because they 'already have those.' It's a can't win situation for Sony. I will say maybe some better indie games could be chosen but for the bigger-budget, high-profile games it simply isn't realistic to demand two each month.

Gamer83 commented on Pre-Order Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 and Get ...:

@Constable_What
A sledge hammer right to the groin would be less painful than giving SquareEnix credit for anything but I have to be fair. SE actually has gone out of its way to make this package worth it. All the DLC (Endurance Mode, Baba Yaga and Cold Darkness are all pretty good) plus a new story DLC, classic outfits and now Tomb Raider Definitive Edition for free... Can't say this isn't worth it for $60. Rise of the Tomb Raider is one of the top 5 games this gen (I have it in my top 3), easily the best game on Xbox One and will fall just behind Uncharted 4 on PS4, though an argument can be made that RotTR is better. It's a shame the imbeciles at SquareEnix and Crystal Dynamics decided to screw this game over because of MS' 'passion' for the product. LMFAO! And before any of the Sony-haters say it, I know Sony does similar timed-exclusive deals too and I also condemn those so save the bs. MS, SE, CD can all f**k off for putting a black cloud over what should've been one of the most celebrated games of this gen. Really, REALLY p*sses me off.

@Utena-mobile
This is actually nothing new. I think the Japanese Xbox numbers might be at an all-time low this gen but ever since the original Xbox it has struggled to get a footing in that market. Even last gen the 360 only reached moderate success and MS was actually paying for a lot of Japanese games back then. People blame it on the Japanese not liking American products but it's got to be more than that. The Japanese support a lot of American products and properties.

@wiiware
TR Definitive was 60 fps on PS4, 30 on Xbox One. Rise of the Tomb Raider was originally made for the lowest common denominator so that's likely part of the problem. The other part is while it shouldn't be too hard to improve the framerate it will take some extra work and they can't be bothered with that.

It's not a politically correct game and we live in an overly politically correct society. I think the concept is a little weird but if somebody else likes it, whatever, I don't have to buy it so it's not a big deal.

'Targeting' 1080p, 30 frames per second? Please tell me Nixxes is not so incompetent that it can't hit that with ease. PS4 is more powerful than Xbox One, they've had plenty of time to work on the port and when games like Ratchet & Clank and Uncharted 4 exist, there is no reason for it to even be a question if they can get this going 1080p, 30. Hell, they should be able to get it going 1080p, 60 easily.

Gamer83 commented on Lara Croft's Tomb Raider Rises on PS4 with New...:

@kyleforrester87
Well, considering last-gen TR: Legend didn't show up on PS3 for years and 360 owners received exclusive DLC for Underworld while PS3 owners didn't get a damn thing despite buying the game in larger numbers. Despite, once again, supporting the franchise in larger numbers with the reboot in 2013 and a year later the Definitive Edition the scumbags at SE and Crystal Dynamics say 'f**k you, you have to wait' after not being upfront from the start. So I can understand - given the way PS owners get behind the Tomb Raider franchise even with the constant sh*tting on from the publisher and developer - wanting something a little more than lame VR support just as a way of letting the fans know they care. If Xbox owners got pissed, tough, they had the full game game and bragging rights for a year and get preferential treatment despite not being the series' biggest backers.

@BranJ0
I still give story, and all it entails such as supporting cast, to Uncharted 4. I did like the characters, mainly villains, better in Rise of the Tomb Raider than in the 2013 reboot though. And RotTR does get the gameplay advantage, there's just more action than in Uncharted 4. Overall both games are about equal, imo.

Gamer83 commented on ESPN Thought Mika's Costume Showed Too Much Sk...:

Sensitive, progressive America at its finest. What I find most annoying about the whole thing is one of the biggest movies over here in recent years, which was loved by the 'wider audience' that condemns this stuff was essentially a rape fantasy. But some guys find digital skin ok and we can't have that. So damn sick of the stupidity but in fairness to ESPN, this isn't a new issue just heightened. I remember my mother was ok with me playing M rated games like Resident Evil or MK with blood and guts being all over the place and it was fine that I was having fun. Movies with constant murder, including some more brutal for women was ok. Even rear female nudity, however, and my dad was in the doghouse for allowing me to see such atrocities up until I was 15 or 16. I was mentally stable enough to not grow up a murderer but somehow a female butt would've turned me into a serial sex offender.

Gamer83 commented on Rumour: Lara Croft's Rise of the Tomb Raider R...:

@BranJ0
I'll back up @JaxonH and also say this game takes everything the first did and does it better. And even if somebody has already played Uncharted 4 I still recommend the game. In some ways it's better. I'd go story - Uncharted 4 (not a slight on a Lara's adventure, which does have a nice story). Gameplay - Rise of the Tomb Raider (not to knock Uncharted 4, which does have significantly improved gunplay). The more open world nature of RotTR allows for more replayability, imo. It also has some fun DLCs. I also for some reason prefer the new Lara Croft to Drake. Drake is an awesome character but Lara's a little easier to relate to.

Gamer83 commented on Review: Ghostbusters (PS4):

@themcnoisy
I don't know, I thought all of the 90s were a great time for games and for current-gen I'd throw a few more games in there that I really like but I agree gaming isn't as good in 2016 as say 2000-2010. I think a lot of factors. Obviously as businesses all companies want to see is profits and taking risks doesn't usually turn profit, so that stifles creativity. We also have a current culture, at least here in the U.S., that is overly sensitive, overly politically correct, offended by everything and is becoming as freaking close-minded as Xbox fanboys accuse the Japanese of being in regards to American products.

Gamer83 commented on Review: Ghostbusters (PS4):

@Napples
The funny thing is thanks to having the all-female main cast this movie is going to find some success, eventhough it deserves to fall into irrelevancy. And I think it's quite ironic that people (and there were a lot of them) who got p*ssed because "Ghostbusters can't be women" are part of the reason the movie is going to be successful. I'm not seeing it in theaters. will rent it when it hits bluray, because it just looks entirely unfunny. Flip the genders, change some of the bad jokes slightly (because male and female humor is different whether 'progressives' want to accept that or not) and you have the same thing. An unfunny, unnecessary reboot, only difference is, if it were all males, nobody would go to see it. Sony played this one smart. I don't know if I like the tactic but if you play off the emotions of the radicals on both sides of the gender war, you're going to get a decent payoff at worst, a great one at best and in the end all these higher ups are seeing is $. Even some he-man woman-haters will pay full price to hate watch, which will help the movie turn a profit and then their jaws will hit in the ground in shock That is about as funny as it gets.

And having played Rise of the Tomb Raider and knowing what a good game is, I wouldn't be surprised if it's better than most, if not all of those set to come out. I'd still recommend it to PS4 owners despite SE's stupidity. Of course if it's full price, I agree they're sending the game to die. Not sure how some of those games will sell, but Battlefield and WWE have an audience and PlayStation owners have asked for Titanfall, I imagine it will get some support from this userbase. Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 should've been a mid-summer release, especially if they're charging full price. I understand the contract and all that jazz but the game will suffer this fall, no question. Seriously haven't seen a company try so hard to sabotage what should be huge franchises for them. But SE is arguably the absolute worst in this industry. As much sh*t as EA, Activision, Ubisoft get, they're all better than SE.

Great game in 2006, doesn't hold up well, though.

@JaredJ @karlkemp18
Capcom is weird sometimes. I think all the RE re-releases got a disc version but Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition was digital-only in North America and I believe the same for Ultra Street Fighter IV (not sure if Europe got those games on disc or not). Dead Rising will probably be the same.

@Rudy_Manchego
PS4 or Vita, doesn't really matter to me but I agree these games are perfect for handheld devices. I think two systems that should be automatics for Telltale's games are Vita and 3DS. I guess you can throw other mobile gaming devices in there as well. All should be able to handle these games which don't push the hardware at all.

Gamer83 commented on Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Will Make Your Eyes Pop...:

@Grawlog
Yeah, VR is going to be a really tough sell, like it always has, and no amount of take pics of women simulators is going to help it move the needle. What they need to do is get more games like RE 7 and Gran Turismo Sport fully playable with it and hope that's enough. The problem there too though is if you want those games to sell well you can't make them exclusive to VR because you don't want to cut out the large segment of people who would rather just play a game regularly for whatever reason. For me, it's mainly because out of the blue, at 33 years old, I've suddenly become more sensitive to motion sickness. Don't know why and it bothers me but until I can get some good evidence that it won't effect me when using VR headsets, it's 100% out of the question. For other people they simply just want to kick back, relax and don't want any headsets or motion controls getting in the way of that. There's also pricing and other things. I think Sony might have the edge at least with being able to price it but if you want the best performance you're also sacrificing things by not going with one of the other more powerful, expensive options. It's going to be a challenge for all these companies. VR is interesting technology and can succeed in other areas for sure, just don't know if gaming will ever be one of those.

@dryrain
I hadn't heard that about Tekken 7 but not surprising if true. Won't lose sales and a certain youtube channel won't be putting it under a microscope in a negative light. Be lying if I said it doesn't annoy me when devs cave into the overly sensitive crowd but I can't say I blame them either. Hell it extends beyond stuff like bikinis too though. Nintendo got taken to task because you can't create a female Link in the upcoming Zelda game. There's certain people who claim this movement is all about making things 'better.' All I see is more division than ever and this stupid 'if I don't like it, nobody should be allowed to have it' attitude. I've also seen male gamers who claim they'd rather play as male characters and not females because it's easier to relate to a character of the same sex (makes sense) get called everything from close minded to sexist to woman haters to an extremely offensive f word. Yet these same people want you to 'understand' them. I've mostly stayed out of these topics, kept quiet because if you object to the thinking of some of these people you have people on the internet who know nothing about you act like you're the scum of the Earth and should be wiped out of existence. That's if you aren't shut down by the people who run the website first (of course if you're a Sarkeesian worshipper, type whatever the hell you want). I'm not keeping quiet on it anymore though. If it gets me banned from places, so be it. I'm sick of the double standards, hypocrisy and stupidity over what is a really ridiculous first-world issue and is one that I would love to see certain people go to a woman in a third world country and say 'I can relate to your problems because Grand Theft Auto gives male players the option to visit a strip club in a video game.' The last straw for me was at E3 when we saw the new Kojima game. Nobody said a damn thing about the unnecessary nude male butt (rightly so because the truth is, it's his game he can put what he wants in it and we shouldn't care), however, Nintendo tells you 'no female Link' and the world is coming to an end. After the Sony conference the woman who co-hosts those shows, Meredith I believe her name is- and for the record, I like her, she's good at her job and is easier to listen to than the easily pleased, overly excited male co-host - said she needed to 'have a minute' over the nude Norman Reedus and nobody said anything. It was harmless and is something that shouldn't have bothered me and back even as late as 2012 wouldn't have bothered me but you know in 2016 if Kojima had put a popular female actress in the game with some rear nudity he'd be called a woman-objectifying scumbag and if the male co-host 'needed a minute' he'd be a perverted, demented lonely neckbeard who only wants to have one hand on the controller and one hand on something else when playing videogames. It's the same double standard as with a real life issue that has always bothered me, at least since I've been old enough to think about it objectively. When myself and a bunch of friends are hanging out and one is talking about his escapades with a bunch of women we're high fiving him and back slapping him, 'you're the man.' If one of our female friends told us about how many guys she's been with she's a sl*t who should be avoided at all costs (not my way of thinking but I know most of my other male and even female friends would think that way of her). Really, not right. We're all people, we all think and act in different ways but if you're not hurting anybody then what's the problem? We all should be worrying about real issues not silly bs like what people choose to put in video games, movies, songs or tv shows they create because in the end you can choose what you do and don't pay attention to, it really is that simple.

Sorry for the long rant, I really didn't want to do it but it is something that has been building and just like a little thing at E3 got to me, a little comment I saw here today that really shouldn't bother me (and years ago wouldn't have bothered me) just struck a nerve. I'll leave things alone now since it has gotten really off topic.

Not going off my own experience here because I have no interest in the DoA Xtreme games but according to my one friend who plays anything with the DoA name, this subseries is essentiallty a photography simulator. Throw in the obvious stuff and this doesn't surprise me that it's happening and if it makes some people happy good for them. I actually think if you just take the main concept on its own, a photography sim, those types of games could be very neat with VR. Just imagine Nintendo entering VR with a sequel to Pokemon Snap.

Thanks. Got rid of the game a few months ago and it seems there's still no reason to go back. I can't believe Capcom screwed up this bad. Doesn't make me overly confident for games like Dead Rising 4 or Resident Evil 7. Guess in the case of Dead Rising at least since 3 was good I can hold onto that for a glimmer of hope.

Just out of curiosity, because I was a bit interested in SF V's story mode. What's lame about it? Also are there any other fighters you've played that have a story mode you enjoyed that you're measuring SF V against? There's no denying MK 9 and X and Injustice's story modes are cheesey as it gets but they are enjoyable.

Not a fan of this series but if I was, I'd probably be more interested in a sequel than a remaster. There's no denying the demand for a remaster though. In nearly every Bloodborne or Dark Souls 3 article I saw somebody asking for a return of Demon Souls and many times it was people asking for a remaster.

You may like to believe it, I'd like to believe it too but if the ultra conservative didn't make up more than 5% you wouldn't see all these whiney pansies concerned about nude females in God of War, The Witcher 3, GTA etc. Of course in GTA IV when a guy was naked for absolutely zero reason it's no big deal. If America had really come a long way from being an overly sensitive overly politically correct nation you wouldn't see all these worshippers of that scam artist Anita Sarkeesian. There's also a reason a lot of Japanese developers are afraid to bring these games West or will seriously tone down the content (to be fair, I do think it's justified to change things in some cases if we're talking about underage characters for example) and that's because people are still overly ridiculous. You saw what is common thinking in the West right in the opening comments of this article. Unfortunate but true. I'm with you on the thinking though. It's crazy that blowing people up, torture and other stuff is no big deal. But if there's a scantily clad female she's being objectified and is just there so 'male gamers can jerk off.' I'm really tired of this stupid ass way of thinking. If you don't like the content in a game, fine, don't buy it, it's that freaking simple. For people to have such big egos and act like something so harmless shouldn't exist just because they don't like it really annoys the hell out of me. Of course when I say that I'm a privileged white male who lacks empathy hates women and wants to keep them oppressed.
