Gamer83 commented on Review: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (PS4):

@Lurker
Yeah, that falls in line with what friends have told me. I'll be playing it soon, picked it up a couple hours ago, just waiting for an update patch to download. Can't wait to see if it meets my expectations. Deus Ex: Human Revolution wasn't perfect by any means but it did enough things well that it ended up being my favorite RPG last gen. There was just something about it that kept me hooked from start to finish.

Gamer83 commented on PlayStation Plus Price Increase Confirmed for ...:

@Tasuki
Just going by what I've always seen in this industry. When one company is well ahead of the competition it gets arrogant, starts thinking it's untouchable and then will try and push the envelope a bit. You really think if the roles are reversed with Xbox One doubling PS4 sales that Sony would up the price on PS Plus knowing it could enrage the customers it does have? Not a chance.

At the end of the day though, this isn't a huge deal. I'll make a sarcastic joke like '#fortheplayers' but the truth is anybody who's a savvy consumer hasn't paid full price for a year of Xbox Live or PS Plus in years. Sony and MS could up the prices on their services to $120 and it still shouldn't bother anybody who knows how to use the internet and find good deals.

Gamer83 commented on Review: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (PS4):

In most cases I've found games that get a 7/10 from PushSquare tend to be better than reviews from this website would lead you to believe so I'm not put off. The fact of the matter is, we're living in a post-Witcher 3 time and every Western RPG from here on out is going to have a tough time matching up. However, if you look around the web, this game is still pulling in good reviews and from what I've heard from friends who got an early copy if you like Human Revolution (which I'm a big fan of), you'll like this, so that's good enough for me. I can't wait until I finally get to play this on Tuesday.

Gamer83 commented on Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 Sounds Like the De...:

As I say about it in almost every article, this is one of the best games this gen - top 5 - and despite the idiotic decision making in regards to how it was originally released, for what is on offer in the PS4 version if you're somebody who is interested, the full price is worth it. You're getting all the previously released content plus some new stuff. As a day-one buyer I paid the $60 for the base game and $30 for the season pass and don't regret it, it's that good. It's a shame this game will always have that black cloud of timed-exclusivity over it because it should've been celebrated by everybody (Nintendo fans should've been included too because I think there's a large segment of Wii U-only owners who would've loved to play something like this) but it is what it is. Bottomline, the game is coming to PS4 now and with the exceptions of Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4 and Bloodborne, Rise of the Tomb Raider eclipses anything else on the console with ease and is right on par with those other 3 games.

@Grawlog
Movement is something I thought Insomniac really nailed with Sunset Overdrive. I think at about 10 hours in you're probably close to halfway through (took me around 20-24 hours first playthrough, if I remember correctly). It's one of those games that just keeps getting better.

@GoatWrench
I'm stopped wondering and started considering SquareEnix joke at least 6 years ago. It just gets worse as the years go by. The most idiotic move was still taking MS' blood money for one year exclusivity on Rise of the Tomb Raider. The Deus Ex 'Augment your pre-order' bullsh*t was an extremely close second, however. I don't want to punish developers like Eidos Montreal by not buying their games but it truly sickens me that I have to give SE money when I shell out for Deus Ex. That cash should go to the people who actually did work on it, not the scumbag pieces of sh*t in suits sitting in SE's ivory towers.

Wasn't hyped when it was announced, still don't care now and all this news means is more people get access to a subpar-looking game. Aside from Bayonetta not much coming from Platinum these days is worth a sh*t. SE's involvement doesn't help.

@JaxonH
I'll be checking out Xenoblade at some point, thanks for the recommendation. I've played the other games. Not a fan of Monster Hunter but Zelda: A Link Between Worlds was one of my top 5 games of 2013 and is still my favorite game on the 3DS today and DKC Returns I bought a while ago. I've had the 3DS since early 2012, I just decided a few days ago to get the 'New' model because I want to play Smash Bros. without all the waiting and being able to play some of my favorite SNES games on the go is too enticing. Even with the NX not far off, I couldn't hold out much longer to see what that machine actually is, so I made the upgrade.

My friend code is 3265-5694-0053. I don't play online that often but I do like building up friends lists on all systems just in case a game does come along that changes my mind. Right now I have no friends on 3DS so I definitely added you.

Gamer83 commented on Review: Batman: The Telltale Series - Episode ...:

This is why Rocksteady deserves a lot of credit. Since the 16-bit days it's the only studio that has found a way to make great Batman games. Even Arkham Knight, which I found to be disappointing, is still a solid 8-8.5 out of 10 game. Other developers just don't seem to get what works. I like Telltale's games for the most part (The Wolf Among Us is phenomenal, The Walking Dead series and Tales From the Borderlands are also very good) and I like the Batman universe but from the reviews it seems like Telltale's style and what makes a GOOD Batman game don't match, unfortunately.

Gamer83 commented on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Is Done and Dusted:

Didn't play Human Revolution until a couple years after it was out but this sequel is an absolute day one buy. It actually is top of my list over every other game because HR was so friggin' awesome, best RPG last generation.

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.

@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.

Gamer83 commented on Japanese Sales Charts: If We Were Nintendo Lif...:

@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.

@thatguyEZ
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.

The absolute right thing to do is tell MS to f**k off but clueless peopoe will turn it around and make MS look like the good guy. Don't remember seeing these same 'journalists' at big publications putting the squeeze on MS last-gen.

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.
