Godsire- commented on Talking Point: Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Di...:

"Indies" are selling well (if that's even the case"), bc Sony isn't doing what they should be doing, which is provide bigger "AAA" experiences. So early adopters of the PS4 have nothing else to play. Consumers are going to spend their $ on something to justify paying $400 for a new game console. It doesn't help that the few "AAA" exclusives on the PS4 (Killzone, inFAMOUS, etc.) have performed somewhat poorly, critically speaking.

I could care less if a game is considered "Indie" or "AAA" to be honest. But a console needs a fine balance between smaller & bigger gaming experiences. That way nobody will complain & everybody's happy. Sony is, currently, not providing that balance.

And Sony, as a company, pushing this "Indie" craze is so fake, it's not even funny. The only reason they are or did was because Microsoft has pissed off a lot of indie developers in the past several years & Sony knew they didn't have much in the way of first party, exclusive AAA content coming. So they have to promote something to sell their new console.

If Sony's development companies start putting out good games, like they should've been doing then this whole discussion would be a moot point.

I would love to be put in a room with no windows, cameras, or witnesses w/ these hackers......alone.......for about 20 min.

I guarantee they wouldn't want to hack anything ever again. I hate hackers. Bunch of gutless punks.

@WARDIE

Not really, obviously. I am just saying there is plenty of innovation in larger budget, AAA games. Just because EA, Activision, Ubisoft, etc. have games that are pure cash cows, doesn't mean every game they release is that way.

And when a cash cow series gets started, there is usually some great ideas there or the series wouldn't have made it past the first game or two. Sure the companies milk the hell out of what used to be original ideas, but that's what companies do to try to make $. Doesn't mean we have to buy them.

For ex., I love the original COD, COD2, & the first 2 Modern Warfare games. The rest of the series can blow me. Treyarch sucks & Infinity Ward is a shell of it's former self. Maybe Sledgehammer can do something cool with 'Advanced Warfare', but who knows? If they do, then I will buy COD games again.

In other words, I think the original Modern Warfare, for ex , was a very innovative title & changed FPS to this day. Did Braid do that? Did Journey? Did Limbo? Did Retro City Rampage? Um no. Not even close.

If you really have been playing games as long as you say, you wouldn't need friends that have been "making games for over 20 yrs." (if that's even true) to tell you what you say they tell you.

I am not saying indie developers don't take more risks in games. But just bc they take more risks doesn't mean the games are actually any good or that they "innovate the industry". Some do, but for every one that does, there are 10 indie games that are garbage.

And of course you can give examples of AAA games like COD that just recycle the last year's game. But what about the original COD? Of the first Modern Warfare? Those games were WAY more innovative than sone game like Limbo or Fez. Lol. Not to mention games like Mass Effect, BioShock, Skyrim, etc. Give me a break.

Godsire- commented on Minecraft on PS4 Fails Quality Testing, Gets B...:

I hate to sound like an old fart (which I am), but "back in my day" developers FINISHED a game before putting in on a cartridge or disc & releasing it. None of this day 1 patch b.s. because they had no choice.......no internet.

Glad to see Sony is maybe taking a step to putting a stop to this nonsense.

@WARDIE

Oh yea, the one minute I spent to read this article really set me back. Lol. Besides, I am free to speak my mind just like you are. So if you don't like my opinions, nobody is forcing you to read them.

Also your comment is typical nonsense. Indie studios aren't giving bigger publishers ideas. It's the other way around. You think those indie platformers, for example, created that genre? Of course not. AAA games did back in the day. Ever hear of Mario Bros.? And that's just one example. Just bc you slap some 8-bit graphics on a game, make it very difficult, give little to no story, make it last only a few hrs., & put a $15 price tag on it (instead of $60) doesn't make it innovative or unique.

And you have things completely backwards. If there weren't AAA games (or the promise of them in the future), indie developers wouldn't be putting games on the PS4. There wouldn't be a PS4 at all. AAA games & the promise of them in the future are what sells consoles & drives the industry. Not the other way around.

And while I am interested in No Man's Sky too, it's not even out yet & we don't know if it's any good. In fact, we know very little about the game. So let's not start calling that some "innovative" title yet.

Ugh.....ANOTHER article on this site about how genius Sony is for having indie games? Snore.

How is this news? Is this just Sammy being bored, trying to start another "AAA vs Indie" discussion in the comments section?

Let half the people here say thay Sony's doing a great job, blah, blah. Let 30% say that the PS4 needs more AAA games, blah, blah (I am in this camp). And let the last 20% say that we need to all just get along, blah, blah.

Now let's move on to articles about actual interesting news.

Godsire- commented on Whatever You May Think, Hellblade Is Not Heave...:

@kupo

I really liked Heavenly Sword, too. The combat was a bit of a God Of War rip off, but still fun. The game had AMAZING cutscenes (especially for an early PS3 release), with Andy Serkis as evil King Bohan being one of the best I had seen up to that point. And Anna Torv as a redhead.......:-)

Unfortunately, due to Sony's arrogance of releasing the PS3 for $600 & several other hyped up exclusives bombed (Lair & Haze, for ex.), the system didn't sell well & HS kind of got lost in the shuffle. After the first Uncharted came out & Sony dropped the price of the console......well, the rest is history.

I really think Ninja Theory missed an opportunity when Sony came up w/ trophies, as they decided not to patch it. Whether you like trophies or not, trophies do get people to play games they normally wouldn't sometimes or get people to come back a game (like MGS4 did) & HS could have used that word of mouth to get a potential sequel going.

Either way, it's a shame if we don't get another game in the series & it would be missed opportunity for Sony & Ninja Theory. Obviously there is a fan base for it. Just give us what we want & we'll buy it.

Godsire- commented on Whatever You May Think, Hellblade Is Not Heave...:

They just need to make a proper sequel to Heavenly Sword already.

At any rate, I smell b.s. on Ninja Theory's part anyways. So there is that HS movie & now this little teaser. If the original HS gets a trophy patch or gets a remaster to PS4, yea then this game is HS 2.

Godsire- commented on This Is What Shenmue Would Look Like on the PS4:

Absolutely ridiculous & stupid why Sega hasn't ported these to PSN in HD. Of course, it IS Sega, so what should we expect?

(Disclaimer: I am still a disgruntled Sega CD, 32X, & Saturn owner. Oh & the Dreamcast is my favorite console of all time.)

Godsire- commented on PS4 Title No Man's Sky Is Probably the Biggest...:

This is one 'indie' I am inteterested in for sure. We'll see how this turns out. Hope it's not killed by the hype machine. While the game sounds intetesting (in what little we know about it), it also has bust potential written all over it.

Godsire- commented on Xbox Chief's Uncharted Adoration Motivated Tom...:

Square has fallen so far from the SquareSoft days (when they were good), it's not even funny. I remember when every Final Fantasy game was a huge event & a must own. Now.......bleh. The SNES run of FF III, Chrono Trigger, & Secret Of Mana seems like a thousand yrs ago. Same with their PS1 dominance.

How did the PS4 not SHIP with the ability for custom themes? Absolutely ridiculous. I am still shocked about that.

I am assuming the PS4 controller is wireless? Can it go on the internet? Can it play Blu Rays? Does it use an HDMI cable? What yr is it? Lol.

I have yet to play the Dragon Age games. Yea, I am aware of how stupid that is. Lol. But I am looking forward to playing the original, this game, & maybe even the much ridiculed sequel.

And I tend to be a completionist whore when it comes to my RPG's. It's, mostly, the only games where I have a chance to get a platinum trophy (usually no multiplayer or beat the game 5 times on different difficulty trophies), so maybe that has something to do with it.

Godsire- commented on Gamescom 2014: Sony Refuses to Rehash Previous...:

I don't mind re-masters, per se. I just want "new" remasters. For example, if Bethesda wanted to remaster Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, that'd be great! Or something like Hexen or some older games that didn't just come out a year or two ago for the PS3.

Plus it makes ZERO sense to remaster PS3 games when they are trying to get us to want PlayStation Now.

Godsire- commented on Soapbox: Here's Why I Will Be Playing Journey ...:

I've also heard, "What is the point of this game?", & "Is this game the most pretentious game of this generation", & "Why did I just pay $15 for a game that lasts 2 hrs.?", & "Screw playing "art". I want to have FUN playing a game."

Oh wait.....those are all valid points. Hmmm.

Godsire- commented on Gamescom 2014: We Don't Need to Buy Outright E...:

I was never a fan of the Tomb Raider games, so I could care less if Micro$oft wants to write another ridiculous check bringing that game to their system.

I look at it like baseball (for you sports fans from the US)......Microsoft is like the Yankees & Sony is like most other teams. The Yankees try to buy a championship every year & it rarely works. Most of the rest of the teams try to develop talent themselves & win. That way takes patience, but usually wins in the end.

Besides, a timed exclusive (which is what this will be) is not that big of a deal anyways. Is Microsoft really going to sell that many more Xbox Ones bc they got Tomb Raider earlier than Sony did? Doubtful.

@get2sammyb

I disagree. I just played the first Uncharted again recently (all 3 actually) & the original holds up quite well. Still looks great & it's not like Naughty Dog changed the gameplay or controls a ton in the sequels.

So anyone that hasn't checked out the series, don't be afraid to give the games a shot. Just be sure to download the trophy patch for the first game.

Godsire- commented on Soapbox: Here's Why I Will Be Playing Journey ...:

Don't get all the love for Journey. Ridiculously overrated, in my opinion. And I am sick of people saying, "You just don't get it.". Yea, I get it & like many other people just didn't think it was that great. I rank it up there with Braid (arguably the most overrated game of this generation).

Unlike Braid, however, Journey was an original concept, I guess. I'll give it that.

@Gamer83

I agree. I am very interested in playing Child Of Light, for example. I could care less if it's not a retail game, how much it costs, what size of team made it, etc. If a game is good, I want it regardless.

But if I have to hear about one more indie artsy platformer & how games like that "innovate" the industry (most indie games blatenly rip off previous games), I am going to throw up. It's utter nonsense.

Sony needs to find the right balance between the Uncharteds & God Of Wars of the world & the indie scene. That's all gamers are asking for.

@voodoo341

Once again, exactly. Sony's problem is they haven't released many AAA games to balance out the indie games. I have nothing against indie titles. I just don't want a console that offers me very little else.

To Sammy & the others ripping us who want big games on our systems.......if you think a console (or the videogame industry as a whole) can survive just releasing small indie titles, go dust off your Vita & go nuts. The Vita is a perfect example of what happens to a console when indie games are the focus. It dies a slow death.

@Gamer83

Exactly. I didn't like a couple terms used in this article myself. Being sick of indie games & remakes is NOT "short sighted". In fact, it's the other way around. Without AAA releases, these indie titles wouldn't be deveoping anything on the PS4 bc the PS4 wouldn't exist. AAA games are what consoles are made for. I don't mind GOOD indie games, but if I wanted to play bite sized crap that lasts an hour & has no story, I'll play games on my cell phone.

Godsire- commented on Something's Coming in Sony's Second Gamescom 2...:

Until Dawn has had quite the long development cycle. Usually, that means trouble for the game itself. I am a huge horror game fan, so I am hoping it is good. I love my PS3, but this being transfered to PS4 is a good thing, if the game turns out to be good,

And to Sammy's point, I really hope it isn't B. I am not interested in a VR headset.
