Gamer83 commented on Review: Legend of Kay Anniversary (PS4):

@hi_drnick
It was sarcasm, wouldn't want to part with my money even if it ended up being the best game of all-time and part of it is his attitude. Most users here, even the ones I vehemently disagree with seem like cool people if you were to meet them in the real. This guy however it's constant 'PS4 sucks because they aren't making games that only appeal to me.' There's also the I'm smarter than everybody else vibe his posts give off and the fact he thinks he can tell other people how to do their job. I don't always view things the same way writers here do, but one thing I won't question is their journalistic skills or integrity.

Not sure yet if I'll buy it but I do share the sentiment that it's nice to see this game getting a new lease on life. I'm going to keep hoping Gravity Rush will be next. That's another criminally overlooked game.

@adf86

I don't know about best ever, but definitely one of the best ever. And relating that to the article, the soundtrack definitely played in a role in the E3 reveal being such an impressive debut. Fit perfectly with how they were trying to set the stage.

Gamer83 commented on August's PlayStation Plus Freebies Feature Lar...:

Cool, wanted to play that Lara Croft game, but never got around to it. I will admit the main reason I skipped it is because I was salty over the still idiotic deal to shut PS4 gamers out of Rise of the Tomb Raider for a year but for 'free' can't complain.

@Tasuki
Actually, I do know what I'm talking about, thank you.

As for what I do with my money, shouldn't concern you but there have been plenty of games I like this gen and plenty that I'm looking forward to. Just because I'm not always giving glowing comments about everything doesn't mean I hate everything either. I've made plenty of statements that should show I'm mostly satisfied with what has been put out so far. Not so much Sony's exclusive output but this year there's been enough games that I'm happy to have both an Xbox One and PS4.

Well, this partnership is going swimmingly. First USF IV, now this. I can only hope when it's time for the full release that any issues have been ironed out but Sony seems to be about as good for Street Fighter as MS is for Tomb Raider.

@rjejr
It's going to be the same freaking game with some lame costume and weapon DLC for $60. If it sells big, it's going to be because Sony will have nothing for the holidays for the 3rd straight year. If Horizon or maybe even the new God of War is the big holiday game next year, PS4 gamers should skip right on by Rise of the Tomb Raider. I know I would.

Gamer83 commented on Square Enix Knew Rise of the Tomb Raider's Tim...:

I'd just stop talking about this if I were somebody at SE or Crystal Dynamics. The deal happened, at least it's coming to PS4 eventually (though I don't think it'll sell for sh*t). I was furious when I first heard about it and even last week when it was initially announced to be coming to PS4. But the anger more stems from the fact these idiots keep talking about how they want to 'grow' the franchise so what do you do? You cut out the two biggest fanbases on PS4 and PC for one year and anywhere from 3-6 months. Dumb. And what's worse is that the talk surrounding this game continues to be about this deal and not how good it actually seems to be. Not how you build hype or grow a franchise. But as I say a lot, it is what it is. If this does bomb hard hopefully SE gives up on the franchise and sells it to a company not run by jacka$$ses. Just thinking about the possibilities of a new company getting the series is fun. A Nintendo-made Tomb Raider? Maybe Sony Santa Monica? Either would be awesome.

@Boerewors
LOL. But on the real. That was my favorite quote. So much bullsh*t in that one. MS brought more 'belief' to Rise of the Tomb Raider than Sony in the sense that it dropped a dump truck full of $$$ on SE's lawn. I really hate these corporate a-holes. Again, Sony does these deals to so I'm not going to crush MS, but I will go after SE for bullsh*tting me and trying to insult my intelligence. Most of us who play Tomb Raider, who grew up with the series, are in our late 20s to mid 30s now. Cut the crap and just tell us the truth.

Will be interesting to see which console ends up getting it. You know Sony and MS are going to be in a battle for it but if NX is actually going to launch in 2016 Nintendo may want to make a splash.

For the game itself, I'm happy that Kojima and del Toro are going forward to try and make something happen.

Gamer83 commented on Feature: The Best Games on PS4 - 2015 Edition:

@Storytime7
I'd say PS4 already has a generation defining game in Bloodborne. Definitely one of the best exclusives up to this point and a serious contender for Game of the Year 2015.It's not for everybody, but the games Nintendo fanboys (the group that throws the PS4 no games line around the most) love to hold up like Super Mario or Zelda or Xenoblade aren't for everybody either.

@john_c
I honestly don't see what's so bad about some skimpy clothing and I'm sick of people acting like insignificant sh*t like that or hair color (which DmC was crucified for) have a major impact on the game, but whatever. Everything about this seems pretty average at best, though.

Gamer83 commented on Poll: Will You Be Buying Rise of the Tomb Raid...:

@Matroska
To me the notion that releasing Tomb Raider alongside Uncharted 4 would hurt TR has always been idiotic. Especially if Uncharted had stayed on track for this holiday. I don't care what anybody says, I've worked retail and I saw it all the time, gamers buy MULTIPLE games during the holidays, even if similar. Yes, Uncharted is a popular PS-exclusive series but the PS userbase has proven time and again it also loves Tomb Raider. It is downright idiotic, imo of course, to suggest that Uncharted 4 would've killed TR's potential on PS4. Both would've sold well enough but now with Uncharted not being there, TR would've done even better. Again, short term, monetary thinking with no regard for fans or thinking bigger picture. And the only talk around TR these days is not how awesome the game looks, and it does look awesome, it's about the pathetic way SE has gone about releasing it. It's a shame, but as I've said before and will keep saying, this is what happens when idiots in suits have $ put in front of them.

@Ps4all
It's not even the timed-exclusivity that really has me p*ssed, because both Sony and MS are equally guilty of this pathetic, useless practice. It's the treatment of the people who have actually supported this franchise more than anybody else. It's been a whole year of keeping people in the dark and now, BEFORE the game is even released on Xbox One, it's finally, officially confirmed for PS4? This couldn't have happened last year? I call bs on that, and because of that every single person involved in this deal, and the developers as well, can all go f themselves.

Gamer83 commented on Poll: Will You Be Buying Rise of the Tomb Raid...:

Buying it on Xbox One, used because at my local Gamestop it usually takes less than a week for a used copy of a new game to come back. I had it pre-ordered but now that it's official it will be on PS4, I'm making sure SE and CD don't see a dime, I'll give it to the other corporate slime at Gamestop instead. Furthermore, I hope this game bombs, and bombs hard, on PS4. In fact, I want it to bomb hard that SquareEnix calls it quits on the franchise and maybe even sells it off to a company that doesn't have its head up its freaking a$$. First there was the poor messaging, then there's a-holes like Brian Horton talking about what wonderful supporters the corporate scumbags like Phil Spencer are. How they truly 'believed' in Crystal Dynamics 'vision' (very innovative by the way, take a series the cinematic route lots of other action games went last-gen, how forward thinking and original). You know who really believed in your vision, Mr. dumba$$ Horton? The PlayStation fanbase which showed up in greater numbers than anybody else to support your work. F*** wad. And not even the decency to state the flat-out truth which is you just don't care about them? It's all about the bottomline and that's fine, it's business after all, but don't bs me and insult my intelligence or that of any other PlayStation owner who bought your f'ing game, scumbag. If this game isn't available for PS4 next November at $30 with ALL the DLC included, as well as extra exclusive content for that version and some real a$$ kissing, Crystal Dynamics should never see a dime again from PlayStation gamers. To be fair, it looks like a great game with a lot of hard-work put into it and everybody should be excited, but they're not because of idiots in suits who never think longterm and have no clue about good PR.

And I'm not even mad at MS. Sony does this stupid crap too like paying to keep FF VII off Xbox One for a bit. It's a ridiculous waste of money if you ask me and the only beneficiary are the people at a company that has what seems to be about 800 games that have been in development forever and are still nowhere close to release, and another 800 vaporware titles announced.

And as I've said countless other times in other topics about this. Please SE, for the love of all that is good, keep your idiotic 'leaders' far, far away from Eidos Montreal as it develops Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. That's the only game left under the SE banner that there is any hope for.

This is also on top of the stupid way they're going about Hitman and the fact that the next game in the Sleeping Dogs universe is mobile trash. The only franchises SE has worth a crap anymore are its Western ones and it is doing its best to screw it all up. I've never been a huge fan of SquareEnix to begin with and I'm certainly not now. All the idiots who run SE need to stay the hell out of Eidos Montreal's way. Just supply whatever is needed for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to be the game the devs want and back the hell off.

@teknium_
It's a business at the end of the day. As annoying as this whole thing is, I don't think most Tomb Raider fans on PlayStation will let this bother them. How sales play out will be highly interesting. I think this moronic bs has hurt its potential but this is what happens when dopes in suits get together and don't use their brains. If this had happened at the very start before either console had a userbase, like when EA bet on Xbox One and made the deal for Titanfall, I could kind of understand. However, that wasn't the case here. The Tomb Raider fanbase is on PlayStation, PS4 was outselling the competition at a brisk pace. So, as I posted in another comment unless MS just went full-on idiotic with the money spent... dumb move by SE that benefits nobody but the scumbags in suits.

Gamer83 commented on Rise of the Tomb Raider Officially Announced f...:

Idiocy across the board. MS because if you're going to waste money it should probably be for more than a year or even two. SquareEnix because of the negativity this created surrounding the game. It's good it's going to be on PS4, just like it's good that the FF VII Remake will eventually be on Xbox One. But still stupid and annoying.

@get2sammyb
I'm going to agree that unless the sum of money MS paid for this is beyond insane, SE is going to regret the moronic way it went about this whole thing.

And I don't want to hear the excuses and if anybody reading this wants to call me a fanboy, you can save your bullsh*t right now. There's few who are as critical of Sony as I am, and even fewer who are more critical and I've actually defended this move by MS. The bottomline, however, is SE is dumb. You don't cut out the largest userbase especially when it's the one that has supported your franchise the most. I doubt it ever happens, but one day, I'd love to see the $$$ that switched hands in this deal.

Gamer83 commented on Rumour: Dead Island Could Be the Next PS4 Rema...:

@JaxonH
It has zombies so it will probably sell decently enough. Meanwhile ports of actual good games that deserve a chance like DmC go overlooked because idiots can't get past hair color.

But, you're right on the money, at this rate a good percentage of games from the PS3's library will be ported over. I like to be fair so some remasters I still say would be cool. Personally I wouldn't buy either but a Mass Effect Trilogy or Batman: Arkham collection with some upgrades? Not a bad idea. Crap like Dead Island? F*** off.

@NeverGoFulRetard
Completely agree. The fanboys will tell you that Sony is 'protecting' (yes, some people actually believe that nonsense) you by not allowing EA Access on PS4, but with something like this, I believe consumers should be given the choice. If they don't perceive it to be good value, they won't buy it.

@Bad-MuthaAdebisi
I have a hard time seeing it happen. Just like I can't see it in the basketball or ice hockey either. All these sports are physical sports, and the first time a man crashes into a woman, even if totally on accident, if she gets hurt, he's completely screwed. There will be endless b*tching and then the inevitable rule changes that ruin the game.

@rastamadeus
MS isn't really being incompetent though. In fact pretty much anything it can do to make up for that awful first impression, it's done, and yet, even with no price drop on the PS4 and the console having freaking nothing on the exclusive front outside of inFamous and Bloodborne, it's still a dog fight in North America which is the strongest territory for Xbox. MS has to be concerned about that. If it doesn't win, and win big, here this holiday, it's not unreasonable to say this gen is a wrap because MS doesn't have the same factors going for it this gen that PS3 did last which helped Sony fight back. Europe is PlayStation land and I didn't think it was possible but Xbox is more irrelevant than ever in Japan. I never completely count out a corporation with MS' cash reserve, but it's come up short two gens in a row and this gen all the advantages of the last one are gone. As an owner of both consoles, I want MS to turn it around and make this a serious two-horse race because the tighter the competition the better for all of us. I'd love Nintendo to re-enter the mix too but the Wii U is completely irrelevant. NX needs to be out on shelves sooner rather than later.

Gamer83 commented on Review: God of War III Remastered (PS4):

If this was $20 or less I'd buy it. Awesome game, just not the greatest remaster.

@themcnoisy
If all the remasters to this point haven't damaged Sony's rep, this won't either. It's no different than MS releasing Gears of War Ultimate for $40. With Gears 4 and a new God of War announced, both companies are just trying to build up hype back up for franchises that each took a hit with subpar entries in 2013. I think there are better ways to do this, like full collections with all DLC for no more than $30 but whatever.

Gamer83 commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

Finally completed Batman: Arkham Knight - very disappointed in the ending, even the 'true' one. Great game overall but not as great as it could've been due to some utterly baffling decisions by Rocksteady. One of those decisions was locking the true ending behind a freaking fetch quest and not even making it worth the hassle.

The rest of the weekend I'll be playing Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition.

@SonyInfinity
The original Xbox only lasted from 2001 to 2005 so yeah, if Sony continues to pull ahead we may be looking at 'Xbox Two,' or maybe an entirely different approach than a console, by 2017. This is why I'm hoping things start evening out in the U.S. and Canada and even if MS can't catch Sony in Europe, I hope it can start having more success so we could get at least a 5-year cycle out of the Xbox One. It's pretty clear Xbox is never going to succeed in Japan in any meaningful way and it may almost be a good decision on MS' part to get out of that market and do things to try and strengthen its position in the West, which is bigger for home console gaming anyway.

@BLPs
Had me fooled judging by other posts you've made here, especially since E3, but that's besides the point. Sony is trying to appeal to the people who have brought it to an 80 million+ user base 3 generations in a row. It's been two years on the market with PS4 in an industry that has changed a lot. There's no telling where any of these consoles are going to go. Hell in two or three years time we may all be looking back laughing about 'console wars' as we're playing on the latest Apple gaming device.

@SonyInfinity
Xbox One sold better during the holiday months last year, I think we'll see the same this year unless Sony has a price drop, then I could see it being even or Sony maybe even taking November or December. But since that's speculation I'm just going to go with what we know know. The Xbox One is cheaper, there's a special edition Forza 6 console bundle on the way and a Halo 5 bundle was confirmed in April. That should be enough to nudge Xbox ahead but Sony has done a great job rebuilding consumer interest in the PlayStation in North America close to what it used to be. It's not that gamers here ever hated the brand but Sony dropped the ball big time in the early PS3 days and had a hard time recovering. Roles were reversed this time. MS made some dumba$$ decisions with the DRM and then compounded the problem by letting idiots like Don Mattrick speak.

Xbox One is actually a great console and there are certain features I like better than what the PS4 has to offer such as how the store is integrated into the system, the user interface in general and the fact it lets you install games on external hard drives. But MS made a horrendous first impression with the system and there are still other issues, like taking 20 years to install a game, that need to be ironed out.

@BLPs
Don't worry, MS will have Halo 5, Forza 6 and Rise of the Tomb Raider bundles out the a$$ this holiday season so you'll get your wish and see something other than Sony atop the sales charts. I know how much it tears you apart to see PS4 have any degree of success so hopefully it'll make you a lot less miserable when you post here from September through December.
