Godsire- commented on Destiny's 1.0.2 Patch Goes Live, Improves Loot...:


Yea, I have very little interest in Destiny now. If I want to play a FPS loot fest, I can play Borderlands. Destiny was supposed to be a genre & generation changing gaming experience. Guess not.

And them, shamelessly, ripping out content to sell it as DLC is ridiculous & reeks of Activi$ion whoring out yet another franchise.



Godsire- commented on Round Up: Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor PS4 R...:


No, you are not the only "fool" thinking this way. I am also thinking about this for PS3.

And hard drive space is a legit concern. Why the PS4 was only released with a 500 GB hard drive, I don't know. It's actually one of the reasons I am holding off on buying a PS4. They will release a cheaper PS4 with a bigger hard drive in due time. Plus by that time, there will be PS4 exclusives that will be worth upgrading for.



Godsire- commented on Sony Drives Down the Price of DriveClub's Full...:


Indie games are not "usually" better at all. In fact, most indie games that come out are either crap or can't hold a candle to bigger retail releases. Sure, there exceptions of course.

Also, they are NOT more innovative. I could go into why or list countless examples, but this topic has been flogged to death on this site, so I will refrain.

Either way, 'grenworthshero' is entitled to his opinion & I can't blame him for being frustrated.

However, expecting to get great retail games on PS4 PS+, at this time, is unrealistic to a certain extent. There aren't many great retail PS4 games yet, so they aren't going to show up on PS+. Hence all the indie junk every month.



Godsire- commented on Poll: Are You in Tune with the PlayStation TV?:

No Uncharted: Golden Abyss or LBP Vita on my $ from me, Sony.

This is going to be an incredibly niche product. Sammy's right......Sony won't be acknowledging this even exists a year from now.



Godsire- commented on Soapbox: Please Protect Me from the Purgatory ...:


Yea when "next gen" arrives, let me know. Because the PS4 doesn't have ONE game to justify a $400 purchase. Oh and I would have to pay to play games online to boot.

It's real simple......when the PS4 gets some great games that I can't play on my PS3, that's when Sony will get my $. Until then, I will continue to get great games for cheap (btw, buying games on disc would eliminate half the reason for this article to exist & be cheaper, as well) & enjoy my PS3.



Godsire- commented on Soapbox: Please Protect Me from the Purgatory ...:

Is this really an entire article b*tching about the dowloading of a video game on the PS3?!! Sorry Sammy, but this was the worst thing I have ever read here.

Set aside the fact that complaining about this is the equivalent of beating a dead horse, but are these problems article worthy? Hell no. Not to mention that your download times are ridiculously skewed. Where do you live? Siberia?

Why not write an article about how you spent $400 on a system & are even on your PS3 playing games to begin with, bc your new system is lacking good games to play?

Why not write an article about how the top FIVE Metacritic rated, yes FIVE, PS4 games are PORTS of 'last' gen games? Including four that were PS3 games. That is pathetic.

I would much rather stare at the occasional update/patch progress bar then stare at a console (PS4) sitting there collecting dust bc there isn't anything to play on it.

Now excuse me while I go listen to some MUSIC (yea remember that option?) & stare at all my choices of great PS3 games to play.



Godsire- commented on TGS 2014: P.T. Trailer Will Make You Run for t...:

This better be good. I love the MGS series (I am replayinh them all in order right now), but Kojima can go off the rails sometimes, in terms of story. Hopefully this is more 'Snake Eater' than 'Sons Of Liberty', if ya catch my drift?

Plus, the Silent Hill series has been in decline for years so hopefully this will save this series. Survival horror is back.......hopefully.



Godsire- commented on Talking Point: Is Japan Finally Back in the Game?:

Being a gamer since the 80's, it's been shocking to see the decline in quality coming out of Japan. It used to be ALL big games came from over seas.

Nice to see that at least some games are going to be noteworthy. I think the gaming industry would improve if Japan helped fill our collections along with the usual american & european companies.



Godsire- commented on Review: Destiny (PlayStation 4):

This is exactly what I predicted the game to get: a 7 or an 8. Metacritic has it at a 75. It sounds like a game that is still very good, but just not the genre changing experience people were expecting. While that's not necessarily a bad thing, it's just that the things peope DON'T like about it, (lame story, repetitive) are the things that I was hoping it would do well to stand out from the usual multiplayer FPS crowd.

I was hoping for a game that told an epic story while also delivering great multiplayer. Bungie has shown in the past that they are capable of doing so with Halo. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like Bungie has pulled off that feat......yet.

What I & other people, should keep in mind, however, is as much as they don't want to call this an MMO, that is really what it sounds like it is. And MMO's evolve over time & maybe Bungie has some plans to improve the things that some people are complaining about. Or maybe they don't, who knows?

In the end, like it or not, "hype" can be a damaging thing. With the pedigree of Bungie & a massive marketing budget behind Destiny, people are going to expect greatness or near perfection. That can, ultimately, lead to disappointment. But a 7-8 is still a very good score. At least it didn't completely bomb, & it does have a lot of room for growth.



Godsire- commented on Here's a Really Bad Resident Evil: Revelations...:

They better not screw this game up.....

Resident Evil is really starting irritate me. Capcom is destroying (or has destroyed) one of the best franchises in gaming. And the REALLY irritating thing is, it's bc of completely ridiculous design decisions that leave me shocked as to how anyone at Capcom even have jobs at this point.

I am just waiting to replay the Resident Evil remake (awesome game, btw), then this series can go f@#% itself.

.......(steps down from soap box). Lol.



Godsire- commented on Sony: PS Vita's Remarkably Resilient, and Won'...:


When you can get Rogue Legacy or Counterspy, for example, for your PS3/PS4, why would you buy them for Vita?

When a company creates a handheld, then openly says it won't make any more big retail games for said handheld bc of low sales (even though it's that company's fault it isn't selling well bc of mind blowingly stupid decisions), then that handheld is.....dead.

Just my opinion. It is a shame, bc the Vita is an amazing piece of hardware & had so much potential.



Godsire- commented on Round Up: Destiny PS4 Reviews Shoot for the Moon:


Fair points. Although, I never said you shouldn't be able to criticize a review that you disagree with. Hell, I do that all the time myself.

What I was saying is that you shouldn't criticize the reviewer's right to express that opinion whether you think he/she is qualified to review that game or not. That person is just doing their job.

Btw, I a HUGE fan of sci-fi shooters (sci-fi anything, really) & am on the fence about getting this game, so I am like a sponge right now.......soaking up all the info I can about it to make a decision. I will definitely take your opinion, on how the game turned out, into account.



Godsire- commented on Wait, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Is an Episo...:

I swear, Capcom can't get out of their own way about anything related to this series. What is the point of releasing this in an episodic format? Why is the retail version $15 more?! Why does Claire look like Toby Maguire?!! Why did RE6 suck so mu......Oh wait, wrong topic.

I have been a loyal supporter & apologist of this series since day 1, but Capcom's mind numbing decision making regarding this franchise just continues to blow my mind.



Godsire- commented on Round Up: Destiny PS4 Reviews Shoot for the Moon:

This game has a 7 or 8 written all over it. Reviews will say the game looks great & is fun to play, but the story sucks & it's repetitive.

Overall, it really sounds like a game that if you are like me & want a story & more of a solo experience, then avoid this game. If you want a grind like experience to get some cool loot (like a FPS Phantasy Star Online), then give it a shot.

We'll see as more reviews come out, but I probably won't be picking this up.



Godsire- commented on Feature: Man on the Moon - Our Early Intergala...:


And Activision is, arguably, the worst publisher at "whoring" anything they can to make more $. They single handedly killed off the music game genre by releasing countless expansions, DLC, & controllers & overcharged for all of it. And we've all seen what they have done to the once great, 'Call Of Duty' series. Absolutely ran it into the ground & ruined 'Infinity Ward' in the process.

Hopefully they don't do the same with Bungie.



Godsire- commented on First Impressions: What's Call of Duty: Advanc...:


Kevin Spacey does rule beyond words. "DETECTIVES.......I think you're looking for me." (if you get my movie reference there) Chilling.

Like you said, the campaign is the key for me. It doesn't have to be long, but remember how awesome the MW1 story was? Short, exciting, & fun to play.



Godsire- commented on First Impressions: What's Call of Duty: Advanc...:


Like you said, this is the first COD I am actually looking foward to since Infinity Ward's heyday. I loved the first 2 COD's & MW 1 & 2. I played MW3 to finish up the story & didn't think it was too bad considering the turmoil going on at IW at the time. After playing COD 3 & WAW, Treyarch is dead to me, however. And Ghosts sounded incredibly underwhelming & it shows IW is a shell of it's former great self.

Hopefully Sledgehammer can save the series. They have a good pedigree with the early Dead Space games (some of the guys used to work at Visceral), so I am hoping they go back to making a great campaign along with the multiplayer. I think that is an area where they can really pull ahead of DICE & it's Battlefield series.......give us good single player too!!



Godsire- commented on Feature: Man on the Moon - Our Early Intergala...:

A question I have is w/ people hitting the level cap already, is this going to be one of those games where Bungie held back content & then they will release DLC to make $ & then raise the level cap.

If that's the case, I wouldn't be surprised considering the cost of making the game, the online only nature of the title, & the greed in the industry these days. But still......I hope that's not the case.



Godsire- commented on Feature: Man on the Moon - Our Early Intergala...:


Yea but like a Michael Bay film, I don't just want something that looks good. I want sonething with substance & a good story. I am just not sure this is my cup of tea, so to speak.

Who knows though? Most MMO type games struggle out of the gate with some things. I am assuming Destiny is going to be around long enough to evolve as time goes on.



Godsire- commented on Feature: Man on the Moon - Our Early Intergala...:


No, you are not. I am too. VERY tired.

I do hope the game ends up being good, but it's clearly not a must-buy regardless. A lot of "reviews in progress" are bringing up the same complaints as Sammy had. The online only thing, for me, pretty much kills it. We'll see.



Godsire- commented on Sorry! PlayStation Plus Will Play Host to Plen...:


Exactly. I would take it a step further......NOBODY would subscribe. Even these Sony, indie loving apologists at this site wouldn't (even if they say they would).

However, what big AAA games (that aren't third party) is Sony going to put up there? Most of their exclusives have ranged from "Ehhh..." to "they suck" & there aren't many of them anyways.

Sony knows you have to pay to play online now, so we'll get a steady stream of this type of game.
