Gamer83 commented on Reaction: Why Sony Won't Deploy PS4 Exclusives...:

@Matroska
You're probably right that Xbox One being behind PS4 makes this hurt more, but if somebody has their feelings hurt because Remedy is doing what Remedy has always done that's their own problem. It's hilarious to me all the ruckus this has caused. I'm getting the game on Xbox One, I'm going to enjoy it on Xbox One. There's plenty of stuff to b*tch about this industry, I'll never see how more people getting to play a game is one of those things though. Unless a game is very, very bad, then maybe it's better if access is limited.

Unfortunately they ran the series into the ground long ago. It was a nice attempt for those still interested but yeah, this ship sailed long ago. Hopefully those effected by the staff cuts will find work again quickly.

Plenty of original Xbox and Xbox 360 'exclusives' were also on PC. The reaction to yesterday's news was so overblown, especially given who the developer is. Remedy's games are always on PC. I got a few good laughs at least. Until I realized how many Xbox gamers were crying over something that doesn't hurt them in the end.

Gamer83 commented on Infinity Ward to Lay Its Ghosts to Rest with N...:

Big fan of Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3. Certainly there's reason to be skeptical of Infinity Ward but I'll try to keep an open mind. Ghosts was weak, yes, but maybe with the last two entries being pretty good, IW has been inspired.

@BAMozzy
I definitely think it gets overstated sometimes how 'big' these digital games are with the general public. There's a reason they eventually made a physical, retail copy of Minecraft because it was a big hit but they wanted to expand that reach. Yes, Firewatch and The Witness have their appeal and from what I've seen of The Witness, it's a great game, but neither are higher profile than Far Cry, that's absurd. And Street Fighter V, which comes out in less than a week here in the States, is also a higher profile game.

Wii U is an excellent investment if you are a hardcore Nintendo fan. Otherwise, I have a hard time recommending it. There are just too many third party games that don't get put out for it. If you want GTA, Assassin's Creed, Fallout, Doom, Mortal Kombat, etc, you have to look elsewhere. It's a great secondary machine but where as I could go with just a PS4 or just an X1 and get the good portion of games I want to play, I'd simply be missing way, way too much with just a Wii U. This problem has to be fixed on NX. I don't know how Nintendo plans to do that, but it has to be done.

Gamer83 commented on Watch Dogs 2 Will Don Its Iconic Cap by April ...:

@WARDIE
I'm looking forward to Watch Dogs 2 as well. The first was not a great game but it wasn't horrible either, the problem is the initial reveal was awesome and because of that the game got hyped to seriously high levels that unfortunately the developers couldn't reach. I'm hoping what happens here is similar to Assassin's Creed. The first was hyped beyond belief but was only a good game, however with some extra time and correcting mistakes learned from the first, AC 2 was among the best games last-gen. No reason WD 2 can't follow the same path.

@dazzlerJJD
PS I Love You XOXO is a great listen every week since it's essentially Podcast Beyond just with a different name. I agree, Beyond went downhill as soon as Greg and Colin left it. I always like a good gaming podcast and there aren't too many great PS centric ones imo, aside from XOXO, so I'm looking forward to listening to Ben's podcast.

I actually really like Syndicate, but it's clear the series needs a break. In fact, I say hold off until 2018, really give the team some time to make some adjustments and dig deeper to see what can be done with the PS4, Xbox One and maybe by that time, NX, hardware. In the meantime there are games that have to come back. I'd love a new Splinter Cell. It also opens the door for something like For Honor, assuming it's good, to get some attention.

Gamer83 commented on Japanese Sales Charts: Naruto Storms to the To...:

I wish we had Yakuza Kiwami over here in the West. Nice to see its sales hold somewhat strong. May have to import it sometime this summer, only reason I haven't yet is I'm holding out slight hope we get a digital release as a surprise announcement at E3 or something.

On the hardware front, I still don't think 30K is anything to celebrate and I'm pretty sure PS4 won't even match PS3 lifetime sales in Japan but that's just the way it is there. Over at NintendoLife I'm reading about stock shortages to explain those pathetic Wii U sales numbers. While it obviously played a role it's not like sales ever went through the roof consistently. If the PS4 had those numbers those same clowns would be throwing a party. 'Stock shortage' or no, this is embarrassing. NX better be out this year and it better be worth a damn.

This is on Sony as much as it is the PS fanbase that talks up the great diversity then only buys the usual sh*t. Or cries that 'the game is meant to only be played on Vita,' when it actually started on PS3 and frankly, as much as I love the original release, it plays much better on PS4 than Vita. Beyond that, if you have a PS4 and Vita and really like the series you'll support it regardless of platform, for example you wouldn't see Nintendo fans b*tch about Pokemon making the jump to consoles because Nintendo fans, as crazy as some of them are, just like great games and buy them in great numbers (it's embarrassing that on a console with 3 times less fewer users, Mario Kart 8 sales blow away those of games like inFamous or Bloodborne, Sony fans don't support their exclusives though). All that aside, when a game is supply constrained and has ZERO advertisement it will not sell. And the a-holes at Sony are doing the same thing in regards to Ratchet & Clank and have done this for several other games. They can pour absurd amounts of money into crap like VR but can't advertise a great game unless it's Uncharted. F'ing ridiculous. Makes me fear for Gravity Rush 2.

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

PS4 - Gravity Rush, loved it 2012, still love it today, even better playing on a home console, imo.

PS3 - Yakuza 5, I really need to start making more progress in the story but there's so many damn sidequests, that are actually fun, so I keep getting distracted and before I know it, the free time I have to game is gone.

Cyber Punk, because of the studio behind it. None of the other games are all that interesting if I'm being honest and I used to be a huge fan of Mass Effect but, for all its faults, there was a charm that Mass Effect 1 had that 2 and 3 didn't. Now that that group of characters are gone, not sure I'll be able to get into the new game at all. Vampyr has an interesting concept but DONTNOD is one of the more overrated studios out there.

Gamer83 commented on Hitman's Beta Whacks PS4 Starting Next Week:

I want to be hyped but the stupid release schedule is preventing that from happening. Typical dumba$$ SquareEnix messing up the releases of its only franchises worth a damn, they are 3-for-3. Rise of the Tomb Raider's timed-exclusivity crap, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's 'Augment Your Pre-order' bullcrap and this. There's also the fact Sleeping Dogs was turned into some mobile nonsense. Utterly pathetic. The best thing that could happen is SE cuts ties with these Western studios,(who actually make good games unlike SE's Japanese teams) so they can work with real publishers again.

People lose their freaking minds when I say it, I've even had somebody troll me on this website because of it but the Vita is dead everywehere but Japan. I don't like saying that because imo the Vita is awesome but just like Wii U is irrelevant everywhere but Japan, so is the Vita.

In this day and age of broken a$$ releases and constant patches to 'fix' games, the last thing I'm concerned about when I hand over my hard-earned $60 is whether a game has 50 trophies, including a platinum, or zero.

Played a fair number of the Lego games and while I can understand the appeal of some of them, they're mostly just 'meh.' Even Lego City Undercover which got hype because it was supposed to be one of the first big Wii U games isn't that special.

Gamer83 commented on Drool Over 40 Minutes of Yakuza 6 PS4 Gameplay:

@get2sammyb
Agree, 6 is the game I want after Zero but really it's a shame the series never did better in the West so we could've gotten all the games in a timely manner. But what can you do? Who wants a well-made complete game when you can just keep keep giving companies like Activision and EA more money for sh*t that should've been in games from day one. Pathetic.

@crazykcarter
According to IMDB Aykroyd is one of the character writers, we'll see how it goes. I think the time for a new Ghostbusters movie has long since passed but who knows. It depends how well the new writers work in today's humor with what made the original so great.

@Frank90
Absolutely a perfect chance for Nintendo to pounce. They've lacked third party support for years but I think now this could be an opportunity to strengthen it's partnerships with Namco, Capcom and Sega and now is the time to truly court SquareEnix. Western third party relationships will be tougher but have to start somewhere as far as gaining more support, and right now there is no better time to strike in Japan.

@Flaming_Kaiser
I think Capcom kind of got the hint as far as RE. I don't mind action-oriented games in the series as long as they remain spinoffs. The mainline series needs to return to horror though. I think the RE 2 remake is going to be a testing ground. It sounds like they're going all out with it and if it does well maybe RE 7 will be a return to the series' horror/survival roots.

Gamer83 commented on Finally, We Can Compare PS4 and Xbox One Sales:

It wouldn't be shocking at all if one of the big E3 or PS Experience announcements this year is that of PlayStation 'elite' controller. Makes too much sense. I'm actually a little surprised we didn't get an announcement at the last PS Experience.
