TWD: A House Divided all the way.
JMC commented on DLC Review: Underwater Espionage in BioShock I...:
@banacheck To tell the truth, the setting was what kept me off of the original Bioshock. I loved everything about Infinite, specially the journey with Elizabeth and Columbia. I only started the original Bioschok after I finished Infinte, but it didn't hook me as much because I honestly didn't like Rapture.
@Confused_Dude Oh man, such a great and emotional ending. That song is kinda stuck in my head now...
For me this was one of the best DLC I played. I loved it, specially the beggining on Paris. However, I was really sad about the ending...
JMC commented on Yes, The Last of Us Is Set to Stumble onto PS4...:
@ToOGoodOfAPlaya I know I'll get one down the line, but right now, there's nothing for me.My most anticipated release for a Sony console this year is Persona 5, which will come to the PS3, so although I'm very curious about some games on the PS4 such as Resogun and Infamous, there's not a single one that makes me want it right now...
So happy that I didn't cave to get the PS4. For me, there´s no incentive to buy one right now so I guess I'll gladly wait until 2015 for something to be announce. In the meantime I'll keep playing my PS3 as it have so many games.
JMC commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:
I'm playing Lightning Returns and Bravely Defautl. If I can get away from any of these titles, specially the super addictive BD, I'l be playing a non-RPG, such as Profesor Layton and the Azran Legacies or Deadpool.
JMC commented on Who Would Win Wednesdays: Yu Narukami vs. Squa...:
I'm really torn on this one. I stil couldn't vote. I think both characters interesting and their respective games (Final Fantasy VIII and Persona 4 Golden) was the first game I played on both franchises, and they made me fall in love with the Final Fantasy series and the Persona series. I also played Persona 4 Arena and Dissidia Final Fantasy so I know they both could hold their ends in a fight.In my mind this fight would end in a draw as both are evenly matched.
JMC commented on Who Would Win Wednesdays: Dante vs. Kratos:
@SplatThe problem is Kratos getting a hold of Dante as he could dodge any of his attacks. And even if he did, Dante would only need to draw a gun and shoot Kratos in the face.
Well, Kratos killed gods but Dante killed demons.Even new Dante could win against Kratos as his skill set becomes even more varied and he has the power of demons AND angels. Kratos is a lot more muscular, for sure, but Dante is a lot more nimble and has more speed, so even if it would take longer, Dante would win.
Dante all the way. His moveset is a lot more varied, so he could aproach the fight with Kratos from different angles and do everything to take advantage. He is also a lot cooler than Kratos will ever be and fought a lot of different demons. Also he doesn't lose all of his powers at the beggining of every game.
JMC commented on Review: The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 - Smoke A...:
Loved episode 2 and I'm also looking forward to the third one.
JMC commented on Game of the Month: January 2014 - Tomb Raider:...:
I didn't play any of the games that came out this moth, but I'd definetely choose Tomb Raider as I loved it on the PS3. January was mostly spent playing my RPG of my backlog as I managed to finally finish Tales of the Abyss and Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millenium Girl, both on the 3DS. I also managed to finally finish The Last of Us on the beggining of January and The Wonderful 101 on the end of the month so I kinda aprecciated not having any new games to play
JMC commented on Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f Tickles Your Vita...:
I'm waiting for Persona 4 Dancing All Night. Hopefully it'll be be released in the west soon....
JMC commented on Who Would Win Wednesdays: Ryu Hayabusa vs. Yos...:
It's gotta be Ryu. Guy is a freaking ninja with soooo many weapons and skills that he would beat Yoshimitsu.
JMC commented on Who Would Win Wednesdays: Old Snake vs. Batman:
@BornOfEvilI haven't played Arkham Origins yet, so I can't say anyhing about the bosses on that game. However comparing Arkham City, which is arguably the best in the series with MGS4 I remember the bosses of MGS4 way better than Arkhan City. I finished Arkham City last year and MGS4 I beat a lot of times, and the first was about 5 years ago.All the bosses on the Arkham games will be remembered more than any of the MGS for sure, but only because of their appearence on comics and other media, not because the fights were better. Even Mr. Freeze, which was one of the most tense fights on Arkham City didn't get anywhere near the level of tension when I first fought Laughing Octopus on MGS4.It's only a matter of opinion, of course, and I can certainly understand why people are choosing Batman over Snake, but considering the games, and the games alone, I think that Snake would win. I mean, on the games, Batman can easily die if there are armed thugs if you don't go stealth on them. If I considered the comics and other media, specially the recent movies and the animated series, I'd definetly go with Batman, but from a game standpoint, I have to choose Snake.
Old Snake all the way. @get2sammyb great call back about the tunnel. Snake beat a lot more bad ass bosses in MGS4 than Batman in all of the Arkham games. All the bosses that Snake fought were memorable while a lot of boss Batman fought were forgeatable, so even in old age Snake is a better fighter than Batman
JMC commented on Talking Point: Is the Vita Really Dying a 'Slo...:
I do think that the Vita is in a worst place than the Wii U. Both are great machines once you play them, but they are both struggling and is mainly Sony and Nintendo's fault for that.Wii U has some games announced, including AAA titles such as Bayonetta 2 and all the first-party like Smash Bros Brawl.Vita has nothing like this. The most interesting games on the horizon are FFX/X-2 HD. Soul Sacrifice Delta probably won't change the mind of who didn't like the first one and the indies don't sell machines with overpriced memory cards.The only other game, that I hope will be coming out this year is Gravity Rush 2. Other than that, there's nothing to look forward.The lack of backwards compatibility also hurt the Vita a lot.I'm mostly a handheld gamer and I love my Vita but it's played very little, specially considering the huge amount of games that already are on the 3DS and that are coming soon this year.
I played a lot of The Wonderful 101 on my Wii U and Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Milleniun Girl on my 3DS. I'm at the very end of both games, so I didn't play much of anything else this weekend even though I finally got GTA V cheaper.
JMC commented on Review: BIT.TRIP Presents: Runner 2 - Future L...:
I loved the Wii U version but I still got it on my Vita and I don't regret it at all as it is a perfect fit for the handheld.
JMC commented on Feature: We Predict the Stories Set to Shape P...:
I really hope that Persona 5 relase in the West this year, but I think it won't happen until 2015...Another wishful prediction is the release of Final Fantasy Type-0 for Vita this year. I really hope it'll happen, but I don't want to get my hopes up.As for realistic predicitions, I think Sammy is the most spot on as far as re-releases go. I think it will also happen with Vita a lot, and we'll get a lot of HD collections such as Prince of Persia Trilogy, ICO and Shadow of the Colossys HD and others...
JMC commented on Who Remembers The Wolf Among Us? It Returns Ne...:
The took their sweet time with this one, but I'm glad at least it's releasing soon. I really hope it was just this one, because the wait has been way too long.
JMC commented on Better Top Up Your Wallets - PSN Launches Anot...:
I heard a lot of good stuff about Far Cry: Blood Dragon. Can someone who played it tell if it is really good?
JMC commented on Kojima's Metal Gear Solid V Teaser Puts PS4 at...:
@charlesnarles MGSV is definetely one of my most expected games this year. Since Ground Zeroes is coming to PS3, is there any chance that Phantom Pain will be on it too or will it be only on PS4?
@LDXD I played The Wolf Among Us and enjoyed it a lot. It's has a similiar format to The Walking Dead, as both are from Telltale, but The Wolf Among Us is based on the comic book Fables (NOT required to understand what's going on). You control the Big Bad Wolf from fairy tales, who is human (sort of) on the game and a good detective and sees himself involved on a murder case.The story is quite good and the art style is better than that of The Walking Dead. Being episodic, there is no way of knowing if the story will evolve into something great or if it will fall apart and leave us disapointed. From what I've played, the story on The Walking Dead is better, but, in my opinion, The Wolf Among Us is defintely worth a look.
JMC commented on Soapbox: Sony Is Depriving Players of the Opti...:
I completely agree with the article. I have a 16gb and I haven't download a lot of games due to the size of it. I didn't even take the sale to get Hotline Miami when it was U$2,49 because my card was already full and I don't like the process of deleting and having to download it again. I mainly buy physical games these days for my Vita, but if the memory cards were cheaper, I'd definetely buy a lot more content. I never even used the Vita to listen to music because it's already full of games and huge updates on games like Killzone or Playstation All-Stars almost make me delete the game even if I have a more manageable physical copy...
Just finished The Last of Us. While I couldn't get into it for the first seven hours, the last 5 have been amazing and I really enjoyed it in the end. Not my personal GOTY for 2013 (Persona 4 Golden was that), or even PS3, but an outstanding experience nonetheless. Now that I finished it, I''l probably play a little of The Wonderful 101 (WiiU), and Ace Attorney: Justice For All (DS). I'm also on my second playthrough of Persona 4 Golden and loving it even more.
JMC commented on Feature: Thinking of Throwing Out Your PS3? Th...:
Persona 5, although I think it will come to the west only on 2015. Other than that, The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead Season 2, Lords of Shadow 2 and Lightining Returns.However, my PS3 will be on for a while as I still have a lot of games on my backlog, such as The Last of Us (just passed winter and now I'm really enjoying the game), Vanquish, Valkyria Chronicles, Mirror's Edge and the first Bioshock (Infinite made me curious about it, but I didn't enjoy it as much)
JMC commented on The Writers Guild of America Absolutely Adored...:
@Bliquid I also didnt't enjoy The Last of Us a lot, and I have yet to finish it. It has high production values, but the gameplay isn't that good, IMHO.For me, Tomb Raider had better gameplay even if the story wasn't as good, making it a better game.Bioshock Infinite also had a better story, IMO, and, for me, it had an advantage as I don't play FPS and was pleasantly surprised by it.
JMC commented on Game of the Month: December 2013 - Gran Turismo 6:
Although I loved TWD Season 2, I voted for Runner 2 for Vita. It's just sooo good!
JMC commented on Sucker Punch: You'll Need to Play inFAMOUS: Se...:
@rjejr Ha, good one.Your evil Cole was probably the Superior version.
JMC commented on Poll: What Was Your Favourite PlayStation Game...:
Persona 4 Golden for me. It released over here on 2012 but I got it and played it on 2013 so it got my vote. It's the best game I played last year across all systems and I played a lot of games. So glad to see people enjoying it. I started my second playtrough on January 1st so that the game would lead to another great year in gaming!
JMC commented on Game of the Year: Best PlayStation Vita Games ...:
Persona 4 Golden, obviously. I loved every second of it and it`s my overall game of the year (I bought it this year as well). It`s perfect and I really wish ATLUS would make a remake like that for Persona 3.
JMC commented on Feature: Five Vita Games That Will Keep You Oc...:
I`m most excited for Gravity Rush 2. I`m also looking forward to FF X/X-2 HD as well and I really hope we`ll get Persona 4 Dancing All Night.
JMC commented on Game of the Year: Best PlayStation 3 Games of ...:
Well, for me the best PS3 games this year are:Metal Gear Rising: RevengeanceTomb RaiderBioshock: InfiniteDmC: Devil May CryBeyond: Two Souls.
I haven't played GTA V and I still haven't finished The Last of Us, although I'm closer to it. I'm really curious about Ni No Kuni, but after Persona 4 Golden (my personal game of the year over all systems, since I only played and beat it this year) I already bought a few RPGs from Atlus and can't add one more right now. Maybe in the near future I will...
JMC commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This... Ch...:
I'll play Valkyria Chronicles on my PS3. I can't believe I waited so long to start it but it is great! Other than that I'll play Tales of the Abyss on the 3DS and Lego City Undercover on the WiiU. Later today I'll star the second season of The Walking Dead now that the season pass is released.
JMC commented on Store Update: 17th December 2013 (North America):
Even though I already beat it on the Wii U, I couldn't resist buying Runner 2 on Vita as it is such a fun game!
JMC commented on The Walking Dead: Season Two Premieres on PS3 ...:
I'm really loonking forward to play season 2, and I almost downloaded it last night. However, when I realised there was no season pass, I didn't do anything and I won't buy it until it is resolved...
JMC commented on Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster Will Blitz ont...:
I also plan on getting both on Vita.
For me, this weekend has been all about Persona 3 Portable and The Legend of Zelda: A link Between World. I'm almost fininhis them both and had a great time so far. I also played a little bit of The Last of Us and I guess I'm ready to go on and finish the story.
JMC commented on God of War Collection Causes Chaos on PlayStat...:
I would rather have some PSN games, like Lara Crof and the Guardian of Light, any of the Capcom fighting games, such as Street Fighter II HD Remix.As for ports, I think would prefer the Prince of Persia: Sands of time Trilogy or ICO and Shadow of the Colossus collection... I'd like to play Persona 3 FES too, even if it was as a PS2 classic. P3P made me want a proper remake of it on VIta, though as the story is amazing.
JMC commented on What Does the PS4's European Launch Lineup Loo...:
@Sanquine Persona Q really got my attention. If you enjoy RPGs try Etrian Odyssey. They are pretty fun and one of the creators is helping develop Persona Q.SMT IV is great and I also enjoyed a lot Project X Zone, even though the story is weak and the gameplay is a little repetitive. If you never played SMT: Devil Survivor, Overclocked, the 3DS port is great, but it can be brutal. Also, try Fire Emblem: Awakening. It's a fantastic game!On topic: I also have no reason to get a PS4 right now, because I have a lot of PS3 games that I want to finish and that I want to get, specially now that Persona 5 was announced.
JMC commented on Persona 5 Jumps Out of Your Dreams and into Re...:
I'm really excited for all the 4 Persona games announced, but more for Persona 5, obviously. Second is Persona Q, then Persona Dance All Night and finally the new P4A. I'll most definetely get all of them.
JMC commented on Ninja Theory Has Not Enslaved Itself to Mobile...:
@get2sammybI also want more Ninja Thery games! I loved Heavenly Sword and the new DmC was better than the old ones.
JMC commented on You Really Should Pay Attention to Lightning R...:
@belmontI completely agree with you. FF always had divisive games (anyone remember FFVIII?), but, for some reason, XIII is under heavy fire. I loved all the games of the series and I only didn't play XI and XIV because I don't have time to invest in MMO.I'm definetely looking forward to Lightning Returns.
@Sonicfan11589 I completely agree with you. I enjoyed the cast and it wouldn't be a good JRPG without a crazy narrative. I enjoyed both XIII and XIII-2 and I'm looking forward to finish the trilogy.
JMC commented on Yes, Lara Croft's Uncomfortable Crusade Will C...:
Well, it's one of my favorite games of the year. I bought it at launch and couldn't stop playing it until I got to the end of the story. I want to revisit it, but I'd rather do it on my PS3.
JMC commented on Feature: Games of the Generation - Robert's Fi...:
I only played Journey and, although I liked it, I didn't love it as many others did. It was fun and I don't regret buying it, but it's definetely not on my list. The only other game that I also own is Mass Effect 3 that I got with the Trilogy and I'm still making my way trough the first, despite being fully aware that the ending is disapointing.
JMC commented on Feature: Games of the Generation - Katy's Five...:
DmC is really one of the best games i played this year. The action is really fast paced and the action is varied and the combo possibilities are almost endless. One of my favorite games.I also said before that i loved Heavy Rain and i completely agree that every gamer should experience it.As for the others, even though I hear great things about them, specially Far Cry 3, I don't think I'll play them...
