I love everything Nintendo, but also enjoy gaming on other consoles. My first game was Mega Man 3, and some recent Ninty favorites include Pikmin 3, Fire Emblem Awakening, DKC Tropical Freeze and Zelda Link Between Worlds. I own a Wii U, PS4, X1, 3DS and Vita. And of course, a Gamecube and Wii.

JaxonH commented on Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Cordially Invites...:

Well, if you recall, the first one was actually split up into episodic chapters, and each one started with a recap of prior events. As much as I hate to say this (seeing as I am against the entire concept of episodic games), Revelations seems like one game series that really was built for episodes. Of course, I'd I'd still rather enjoy all those episodes in one package at one time...

Tetris Ultimate for $10? They're charging $30 for the game on 3DS, wth? Might have to buy it at that price, though I'm certainly grateful that I didn't buy the game for the handheld now that I see they're basically ripping us off...

Also, Oddworld for $10 on Vita? Is that the same one selling for $30 on PS4? Why these sudden fluctuations in pricing?

JaxonH commented on Review: Rollers of the Realm (PlayStation 4):

Reminds me of Odama on the GameCube. Well, that's genuinely the ONLY other medieval RPG/pinball hybrid I've ever seen actually, and quite possibly the only other one that exists. At least in Odama you could control your soldiers via voice command, well, at least in theory. It only actually worked like 25% of the time lol...

I thought there were a few characters more decent than others. Certainly not the worst I've ever heard, though I would appreciate a quality voice cast in a Final Fantasy game for once, or any JRPG for that matter.

@rjejr Dude, that game is legend for bad voice work. My brother was telling me stories of this so called game he played on Wii that had literally THE worst voice acting of any JRPG he had ever played (and he's been playing these kinds of games for 20 something years). That game was Arc Rise Fantasia lol.

And all hail the Wakka, ya?

Heck, who needs backwards compatibility when they're porting the entirety of the PS3 library to the PS4 lol... Granted, you have to buy the games all over again but, at least they're available. Besides, apparently nobody cares if they have repurchase their libraries so, guess it's a win win for everyone.

JaxonH commented on Soapbox: Destiny's Progression System Is Destr...:

I was so excited for this game before it released too. It has so much potential, yet seems to be ruined by a few selfish decisions on part of the publisher.

The online only thing has got to go. If I'm playing against AI, and am not playing with anyone online, there is no reason the game should require an online connection. That just limits the game's longevity, because one day the servers will be shut down. And it renders the game worthless anytime the internet goes out (and with Charter, that's fairly often). I like buying games that I can pick up again in 20 years and play just like it was brand-new. I could understand forcing online for when you actually play online, but there just isn't any sense in forcing it for the entire game. That's the first mistake.

The second (imo) is the scarce loot and tiresome progression. I play Monster Hunter. I have no problem with rare items and 2% drop rates. But in MH, you can hunt a monster over and over until you get what you want, and you can perform certain actions that increase your drop rates. And there is no "one step back two steps forward" progression. Scarce loot can be a very fun and addicting element of a game, but if not done correctly it has the power to destroy entertainment value rather than build it.

@XFsWorld Dude, I just got back from my work trip out of state, find Temple of Osiris has arrived. So I open it up, guess what... NO DISC INCLUDED. It's a case with a voucher code, yet I had to pay $10 extra for it as opposed to buying digital.

JaxonH commented on Street Fighter's Natural Home Is on PlayStatio...:

@XFsWorld Strangely, I find a lot of games feel at home on the 3DS. Certainly RE Revelations, Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, and I agree, Street Fighter 4 as well. Idk what it is about that handheld- games just feel right as rain on it...

I'll always think of the SNES when I hear Street Fighter. But, for current games I say PS is as good a place as any. Though I still play SFII Turbo and Alpha and New Challengers on Wii U Virtual Console.

And, I had my fill of Street Fighter 4 on 3DS. I liked the new optional 3D "over the shoulder" view. Made the characters pop right out at you.

But it's time for a new one. I'm gonna play the heck out of this game when it releases.

JaxonH commented on Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster to Play Blitzb...:

Just played and beat FFX on Vita. So no, I'm not buying it again. How many times do they expect to sell us the same game? Every time a new console comes out they expect us to rebuy the game again? Yes a new console came out and I bought it- for NEW games. If a person hasn't bought it already (and it was made abundantly available on both PS3 and Vita), do they really think they're going to be interested now? Or do they expect the ones who bought it to rebuy it again a year later just because it's on a new platform?

As for KH Collection (IF it comes to PS4), that I will buy. But that's only because I didn't have the opportunity to play the one on PS3. If I had, there's no friggin way Id be buying the same game again a year later. When it's one game, it's not a problem. When there's 50+ games getting remade a year or two later it's a huge problem.

@ShogunRok

Master Strategy
Make a full, $60 game. Piece off the last 1/3 of the game and sell it as DLC.

Take that 1/3 piece and split it into 2, and sell both as single expansions of DLC.

Remove any chance of leveling up at normal rate so it takes players 3x longer

JaxonH commented on Don't Have Destiny's First Expansion? Then You...:

This game smacked of greed from the moment it went on sale- whether it be a substantial amount of missing content and storyline, DLC that coincidentally pieces right into the gaping holes of the campaign, mandatory online for offline single-player missions, or seizing content and tiering it off with the expansion... this game was meant to bleed us like swine.

I will not support such games, no matter how high a score the critics give them.

JaxonH commented on PS4 RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Packs Up Unti...:

@ztpayne7 I heard it drastically improved the framerate, but no, I didn't. I just decided to hold off playing it until a decent patch arrives. I didn't know there was an easy option to disable the network like in Far Cry 4. I had heard stories of people having to manually disconnect on a system level, so I didn't bother tinkering with it. If there were an option, say, like how Far Cry 4 allows you to play the campaign online or off-line, I might've given 'er a go. Then again, the issues in that game were more deeply rooted than just framerate.

@rjejr
At least Nintendo has a good habit now of only committing to release windows rather than dates. They got a clue, finally. Pisses a lot of people off not knowing release dates until months before the games drop but it's better than getting your hopes knocked back a full 6 months to a year. I wish the rest of the industry would adopt this policy. Although, having a vague target window is nice too, which sometimes Nintendo isn't so willing to give.

It just boils down to this- however long you think it's gonna take to make the game, add one year to that and that's your target release date. In this day and age, it just takes longer than it used to. They're still making predictions based on wishful thinking, and not being realistic.

@Gamer83
I count myself lucky in that regard. A lot of the games lately that have been accused of having issues, have been online-related only. So like Far Cry 4, Dragon Age Inquisition, Halo Master Chief Collection... All these games have been perfectly fine for me (and even exceeded expectations). The one game I got sucker punched with was AC Unity. That game had fail written all over every inch, nook and cranny of every blasted mode available.

@rjejr
Ya, birds of a feather huh lol...

It just rubs me wrong when a developer commits to a specific date. I don't mind target release dates, release windows, tentative release schedules, or anything of the sort. But, imo, once you set a specific date you better hold to it, or don't set the date at all. And while once in a while a delay can happen after a date has been set, there is NO excuse for doing it twice in a row for the same game. You'd think they would've learned the first time! Ammirite?

@Ps4all
1st lol? This is like the 15th of many delays.

Back in spring, I was looking forward to Batman Arkham Knight on October 14th. Then they announced that Batman would be getting delayed until February of the following year. I said ok, whatever, at least I can still buy The Witcher 3 on October 14th. Then they announced The Witcher would ALSO be getting delayed until Feb of the following year.

So ok, both of my most anticipated games of the year were pushed back until February 2015. I was angry, but I accepted it and moved on. Then, they announced that Batman would be delayed AGAIN until June 2015. Ugggh... at least I can still buy The Witcher 3 in Feb I thought... Haha. Hahaha... How could I have been so naïve...

Granted, as @Sinalefa told me earlier, it's better to have a polished game late then a broken game on time. And I couldn't agree more. But it still pisses me off because they lacked the foresight to give us a proper release date in the first place, and have now gotten my hopes up with 3 separate release dates for both Batman and The Witcher, both of which will be releasing close to a year after their original scheduled target release dates. Surely it would be better to wait until they are confident they know when the game can release before they start committing to a date. Because once they give us a date, I'm going to hold them to it. Can't meet your deadlines? Then stop giving us specific release dates until you know for sure.

Having played Minecraft for the first time this morning on Vita, I have to admit it's a pretty addicting game. Usually I prefer direction, or linearity, or some form of goal or objective, but it was actually nice to just do whatever I want for a change.

I'm interested.

JaxonH commented on Yep, PS4 Is the Only Console Street Fighter V ...:

When you own all the consoles, exclusivity becomes irrelevant.

So, about the game. Well first off I love Street Fighter. Been playing since I was a young child back on the SNES. Last iteration I played was SF4 3D Edition on 3DS, and I really liked that game, though I do wish it had more modes for single player.

As for this one, it looks good. Doesn't seem to match the quality of most other PS4 games, particularly those built specifically for the system, but hey, it's Street Fighter. Visuals can be forgiven.

Looks decent. At this point, as long as the gameplay isn't actually BAD, it should be an ok game. Simply because it gets so much else right. Now, it might not win any awards with run of the mill shooter gameplay, but again, as long as gameplay isn't bad, or boring, it shouldn't be such dead weight that the other excellent aspects of the game can't carry it

@Savino Its ok, I understand it probably doesn't make sense to you or others.. When you've been saved, you start seeing things differently. Gore offends me now, gruesome violence now offends me. Horror in general offends me. Really, sin of any kind, I now find to be offensive. 3 years ago I felt the same way you did, but something happened and changed inside of me and the things that used to be commonplace I now find repulsive.

It's why I am totally repulsed by Bloodborne and have zero interest in the game, it's why The Evil Within doesn't appeal to me. Some things I do try to ignore, others I just outright avoid.

@RaymanFan2
And they would be right. No one DOES have a right to tell anyone how they should feel. But feelings are different then actions you see. Doesn't mean a person is RIGHT in feeling a certain way, just means they have the right TO feel a certain way, be it right or wrong.

JaxonH commented on PS4 Exclusive Uncharted 4 Dazzles in Glorious ...:

@Savino Hmm, why is it others are actually UPSET that I get offended over something? What's it to you? Nobody told you to feel a certain way, so I would appreciate not being told how I should feel or react.

I was merely voicing my opinion. If it didn't offend you then fine, but it did me, But neither you nor anyone else has any business telling me how I should feel or react. Just go about your business.

JaxonH commented on PS4 Exclusive Uncharted 4 Dazzles in Glorious ...:

I'm impressed. I really never expect a whole lot from AAA nowadays, seeing as the mechanics are always the same for each respective genre, but there were quite a few aspects of this game that genuinely intrigued me. Most notably, I liked the depth they went to for combat variety, the stealth integration with your surroundings and the climbing mechanics (though mostly identical to any other game, such as Tomb Raider) at least had a better sense of realism.

What I did not like, was the character's insistence to use my Lord's name in vain. Out of all the expressions to choose from, why do they always pick the one that will offend Christians?

Anyways, the game looks great. First one I've seen that actually looks like it's raising the bar.

JaxonH commented on Reaction: The Good Intentioned Game Awards Nee...:

It wasn't bad by any means. Some good announcements for PS and definitely for Nintendo as well (which was a nice change from last year when it seemed Keighly was intent on mocking Nintendo in front of the audience).

Just wished MS played a slightly larger role (or, at least the games on their system anyways), and I do think Bayonetta 2 should have won some kind of award. Losing to Shadow of Mordor for Best Action game and then again to Dragon Age Inquisition for GotY seemed unfair when I found the game to be better than both (though more so against the former- DAI was a respectable contender).

So when is this PS Experience happening?

JaxonH commented on PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Sinks Like a Lea...:

Ok, I'll just go ahead and say it- this game seems to have gotten everything right except the most important part- the gameplay (still a big question mark). The cinematics look beautiful, story seems compelling enough (for a video game), character seem well done- it's got all the right ingredients except for that main ingredient- gameplay.

But that's been a trend in AAA gaming for a while now. Cinematics, story, visuals, all that is easy to do if you've got enough money. Making a game where the hook of the gameplay is actually fun and addictive, well, that's very hard to do, and few do it well. That takes a special kind of talent. So most devs just poor in cash and raise the bar for all other facets of the game, hoping to mask the fact that the hook of actually playing the game is mediocre at best.

It is what it is. That's why I never judge a game based on how pretty the cutscenes look, or how "movie-like" the game comes across, or how well the characters and voice acting is done. At the end of the day, I want a game that's fun to play, not fun to watch.

Having said all that, I'm reserving full judgement until ample gameplay has been demonstrated.

@sinalefa Hmm, good point. I always try to give these companies the benefit of the doubt but, it seems like there's just no good reason for them to skip the 3DS doesn't it. As a Nintendo gamer I'm used to that sort of treatment though.

Well, it may not of been my choice platform for this particular game, but this is why I own multiple consoles.
