GraveLordXD commented on From Software's Recruiting for PS4, PlayStatio...:

After playing demon souls, dark souls 1&2 then bloodborne all in the matter of 4 years I thought I would grow a little tired of the series, after playing dark souls 3 I can honestly say I'm not even close to being tired of them! Probably never will be either
Not at all interested in VR but a kingsfield VR game would definitely make me strongly think about it!

GraveLordXD commented on Test Your Mettle in the PS4 Nioh Demo Right Now:

Hopefully some if not most of the things people are complaining about get fixed, this is supposedly alpha
Until then I do have my eye on this one, I'm just hoping for good level design and challenging gameplay, not something ridiculously hard just because

@Constable_What yeah I'm looking forward to this, from what I've seen it looks great, how's the level design? I know it's only a demo but are there branching paths or secrets or is everything straightforward so far?
Edit: before anyone ask why not just download the demo for myself, the little game time I do have is going straight to dark souls 3 and I rather not have to go through the trouble

@Nickolaidas definitely not true at all, I wouldn't say gamers are man children either, hell my grandparents got me into video games they played more than I did so it's definitely not an age thing
I wouldn't say the industry is fine, if anything it's struggling if it was fine we wouldn't need these pitiful marketing schemes

@rjejr that's the thing, being an early adopter you would expect a price drop or a slim version or a bigger hard drive but not something like this
A halfstep upgraded console all because Sony released a half assed console in the first place, when they should've waited
If anything all this tells me is never buy another console the first few years, if at all

@MadAussieBloke nope I have the WiiU, X1, ps4, ps vita, 3ds, PC not to mention plenty older consoles. I don't think I missed much but I do however feel like at this point I won't be moving forward from here
The industry is flat and stale at this point, I've been gaming since I was around 5 that was 32 years ago
So graphics don't impress me in the slightest, great gameplay and game design do and that's a rare thing now
It's bad enough this generation was filled with remastered games not even a year old from last gen now we have another console coming out what 2 years later? To basically play remastered games of the same generation. The Neo is what the original ps4 should have been, so I should go right out and try and sell my ps4 and hopefully get some decent cash for it so I can go spend $400 on this, and I should run out and buy a ps5 when that comes out in two more years. Na I think I'll pass, this industry has no soul anymore

Sony can kiss my ass 😀
Not interested at all, this industry is less about quality games and more about hardware, is that what we want now? The gaming industry to be more and more like the cellphone industry?
Slight hardware improvements every couple of years sounds ridiculous
Can't blame the companies though, I do strongly point my finger at my fellow gamers for letting things get like this, you're to blame

GraveLordXD commented on Poll: So, Which Souls Game Is the Best?:

Bloodborne actually doesn't really come close not sure it even should be an option and not because it's a bad game by any means but the thing is it's not a souls game and it's a complete stripped down version by comparison
I personally can't vote on 3 yet because I just started it, so far it's brilliant
I'd definitely have to say for the best out of demon, souls 1&2 it would have to be either demon souls or the first dark souls
I'd probably give a slight advantage to dark souls over demon mainly because how the world tied itself together it's probably the best connected world I have ever played

GraveLordXD commented on Review: Dark Souls III (PS4):

@thatguyEZ it was wasn't it, probably one of my favorite intros of any game
Loving it so far only problem is trying to squeeze in game time right now, in the meantime my backlog just keeps piling up, I got ratchet and clank same day but it's gonna have to wait a while among the many other games patiently waiting their turn
Pretty sure the souls series is the reason I have such a huge back log in the first place lol

GraveLordXD commented on Review: Dark Souls III (PS4):

I'm in love all over again, only played for a few hrs but I can say this is more like a mix of demon souls and the first dark souls which is perfect
Anyone new to these games just remember this game has a very very steep learning curve and I can almost guarantee anyone playing for the first time will be playing it wrong, just hang in there pay attention to your surroundings and keep an eye on your stamina, once you understand the basics the rest will fall into place and the game finally all clicks with you there's no better experience enjoy the ride

GraveLordXD commented on Review: Resident Evil 6 (PS4):

@Ambient_Malice and that's one of the reasons I stay away from those games, I hate qte's
I played the first reboot of tomb raider thought it was ok the qte's in RE5 seem to be way worse it was those long annoying qte's. Just thinking about it makes my head hurt

GraveLordXD commented on Review: Resident Evil 6 (PS4):

The thing that bugs me most from 5 and 6 is the quick time events, who thought that was a good idea should never be a game developer
They weren't great games to begin with but then you add that into the gameplay brings it from average to horrible real quick
And who in their right mind would even port this garbage to the ps4?

GraveLordXD commented on Fallout 4 Named Best Game at 2016 BAFTA Game A...:

I've played it through once and it was good not great I haven't had the desire to play it again yet so for me it's not even close to the witcher 3 or bloodborne both of those games have way more depth to me
Last great game from Bethesda was morrowwind and that was ages ago

GraveLordXD commented on Review: Dark Souls III (PS4):

@Matroska yeah I keep hearing different things about the game world some people saying it's as good as the first and others saying its worst than 2
Also people saying everything from terrible frame rates on the ps4 to the game runs flawlessly on the ps4 lol so I guess I'll find out soon enough
I personally never thought this would be able to top the original that may be impossible, but I pretty much know what to expect and that I'll love it either way
Pretty glad this will be the last one for a while though it's time for something new

GraveLordXD commented on Review: Dark Souls III (PS4):

@Matroska was it mostly frame rate issues, or just more of the same? If it's more of that same that's exactly what I want. Only thing I'm slightly worried about is game length I've herd it takes around 25-30 hrs, if so that seems way too short

GraveLordXD commented on Review: Dark Souls III (PS4):

@JaxonH give it some time jax, once you get past the steep learning curve and it all clicks with you I don't think you will regret it. And trust me on this, the souls games aren't cheap at all its by far the most fair challenging game ever made imo
The no pausing is played into the gameplay because there's online elements tied into the game really good ones you'll see, they could have a pause option for single player people but it seems like they want you to think on your feet, it's not to big of a deal though plenty places to hide just don't go to a new area and put the controller down
Not trying to tell anyone how to play these games but I've always enjoyed my first play through completely blind with no help with guides or online help
It makes victory so so much sweeter
Just hang in there you'll get it, I can't tell you how many times I've put the controller down turned off the console just to pick it back up not even 15 minutes later

@Damo @Majic12 true Kings Field hasn't aged very well but I do still love those games I wish Sony would at least put them on the shop for download, I think I seen one of them somewhere maybe it was my gpdxd but it was the Japanese version and well I don't know any Japanese
A complete remake or reboot of kings field would be great speed up the gameplay and of course the graphics, or just a new one all together.

@GamingPenguin short on content? Which souls game was short on content? I've put in thousands of hrs into those games and was still finding things I didn't know existed
Judging from your comments I can tell you haven't really played much of these games

@Bazza78 the ps4.5 can go straight to hell and burn for eternity, the game has frame rate problems on high end PCs, what makes you think a ps4 and a half will be any better?

GraveLordXD commented on So, the PS4K Has Been Under Our Nose All Along:

Sony could put a turd in a box and day one you'll be there with your cash in hand
Remember Sony was claiming how powerful the ps4 was? Now what? What did we get, a bunch of remakes from games that weren't even a year old that looked slightly better. Besides bloodborne which could have been released on the PS3 and still been just fine, absolutely no exclusives. Now oh the ps4.5k
The ultimate way to play ps4 games! Gimme a break I ain't falling for that
This it what you get when you worry about pretty graphics over gameplay and I hope Sony keeps doing this while I sit back and watch this unoriginal industry rip you off over and over again

GraveLordXD commented on Talking Point: Would You Buy an Upgraded PS4K?:

Nothing they can say to convince me to buy a freaking ps4.5 or whatever else bs they decide to call it. They will also have to try really hard for me to buy a ps5 at this point, because right now it seems impossible
This generation of consoles are a joke

GraveLordXD commented on Japanese Sales Charts: Dark Souls III Does Mas...:

@Grawlog
Just to be clear I didn't mean what I said to come off as being sarcastic I was being serious, reading it again I can see how someone can take what I said the wrong way
So you don't think most (not all) hardcore souls fans already purchased a ps4 for bloodborne?
If bloodborne never came out would dark souls 3 have pushed more consoles out the door?

GraveLordXD commented on The First Review for Dark Souls III Is In:

@john_c dark souls was a lot more complex over all and a lot slower paced combat with more combat options. Overall a lot meatier game
If it's the slower combat you don't like it may take getting used to for the previous souls games, 3 looks to be much faster paced
Dark souls 2 was a great game imo but not as good as the first or demon souls

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

@JaxonH salt and sanctuary is pretty awesome it's not perfect I wouldn't give it a 10, really the souls games are my favorite games from the last few generations I wouldn't even give those a 10
Thinking about it the only game of the top of my head I would give a perfect score to would be super metroid it was just absolutely perfect and still makes other games in that genre look inferior even till this day, level design, music, graphics and gameplay was/is still top notch
Metroid prime I owned and beat I remember renting prime 2 but can't remember how far in the game I got, I remember not liking it as much but I do own it now on the WiiU another game in my backlog I have to get to
I love the souls games for me they came out at the right time I was seriously getting bored and burnt out on games I had a PC, 360, and wii and everything felt the same all the handholding overdone cutscenes and action, I kept seeing demon souls and I needed a good rpg but didn't want to spend the cash for a PS3 I ultimately caved in and so glad I did. I was blown away how good the game was, it was something different something that made you work and rewarded you very well for exploring and beating a boss. It to me was a modern take on an old school action rpg something I've always wanted. I appreciated so much because that game singlehandedly revived my love for video games
Dark souls to me is the best so far in that series followed close by demon souls. Dark souls 2 was good but felt a little rushed and the settings of the world didn't make sense bloodborne is really good just not as much meat to the game as the souls games
I honestly can't wait to get into fates, awakening was my first entry into the series and I loved it, I hear these are even better with conquest being harder more old school so I can't wait to give them a go

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

@JaxonH you actually liked prime 2 over the original? I just bought both fire emblems birthright and conquest, haven't started them yet I'm gonna have to put them on the back burner until after dark souls 3
Playing salt & sanctuary and bloodborne until then
I'm like you man I have way to many games in my backlog and plenty of games to get in the future
