KelticDevil commented on Reaction: Sony Delivers the Greatest E3 Press ...:

Checking out what other websites (that I won't mention for obvious reasons, but will if you really want proof of what I am about to say) & comment sections are saying.......I am actually reading a lot of people hating on Sony's press conference calling it a lot of fluff to cover up the fact they, literally, have almost no exclusives coming out this year.

But a few points are very interesting to me.......

If Sony really believes in Shenmue 3, then why does it need a Kickstarter campaign at all? Why doesn't Sony just fund the game? And it's not even being developed yet? Who knows when the game will finally be released & what consoles it will be released on. It could end up on Xbox One.

The FFVII remake is, also, not an exclusive. Why everyone is acting like it is, is beyond me. Just like RotTR, it's timed exclusivity. And once again, no release date or naming of platforms. So, once again, it could be an Xbox One game too.

And many gamers (and writers) who frequent this site would say, "Who cares?" if it was Microsoft getting exclusive timed DLC for games like COD, Batman, Assassin's Creed, Destiny, etc. like it has in the past. But, that was a big part of Sony's show. And all of that DLC is coming to Xbox One at some point. Funny now that the shoe is on the other foot, so to speak.

And nobody seems to know what the heck Media Molecule's game is about.

Why wasn't Persona 5 shown? It's one of the only PS4 exclusives slated for 2015. You think they would want to show at least one game coming out this year. Persona 4 was amazing. Missed opportunity there.

So after you look past all the "fluff", you are left with Uncharted, Horizon (which looked interesting), No Man's Sky. And who knows when The Last Guardian will be released & if it will even be good after all these years in development hell.

So no......Sony did not have the best E3 conference ever, in my opinion. Not even close. They used a lot of clever tricks to try to hide the fact that they have squat coming out this year that isn't going to be on Xbox One. And some of the games that people are going crazy about here are not even exclusives & will end up on Xbox anyways.

Once again, not trying to be argumentative or attack anyone. These are solid & valid opinions/points. Sorry if you don't agree with them.

I think both companies held a lot back. I am sure Sony is reading the next God Of War & maybe whatever Sony Bend is working on.

And I am sure Microsoft will have Scalebound ready to show & maybe Quantum Break or Crackdown.

Either way, the longer this is a 2 or 3 horse to speak.....the better it is for us gamers.



KelticDevil commented on Reaction: Sony Delivers the Greatest E3 Press ...:


If you didn't catch Rare's newer stuff, you aren't missing out on much. A lot of the people that made Rare so awesome when they were under Nintendo's umbrella are long gone.

Their Xbox 360 stuff was very hit or miss. Kameo was a decent game. And I loved Viva Pinata. Then Microsoft relegated them to making Kinect games, which was a massive mistake. Hopefully now that Rare is back to making "real" games, they can regain some of the glory from their N64 heyday.



KelticDevil commented on Talking Point: Did Sony's Big E3 2015 Press Co...:


I played & beat Ico. I thought it was overrated. I never played SoTC.

My concern about The Last Guardian is more about how long the game has been in development & what little we gamers have even seen of it. Not many games that go through that amount of "develoment hell" turn out to be very good. Duke Nukem Forever, Too Human, Prey (I did really like this one, though) are examples of that.

It's developed an insane amount of hype almost soley based on the fact that some people loved Ico/SoTC, the infamous way it's been teased & it's ridiculous development history.

Hopefully it actually gets released & lives up to fans massive expectations.



KelticDevil commented on Reaction: Sony Delivers the Greatest E3 Press ...:


The Rare compilation contains 30 games from them released all the way back to the Jetpac days. So even the N64 titles will be on the disc (or discs). It will also contain their Xbox 360 games, which is pretty cool (even though Perfect Dark Zero & the newer Banjo game were massive disappointments to me). And it will cost only $30, apparently.



KelticDevil commented on Reaction: Sony Delivers the Greatest E3 Press ...:


Yea it's a shame that, because of licensing issues, GoldenEye can't be included in that awrsome Rare compilation the Xbox One is getting. Oh well.

And it's just really sad that the Vita got, basically, zero love this E3. I was hoping (not expecting) Sony would surprise everyone & try another big AAA game for it, but I guess not.



KelticDevil commented on Reaction: Sony Delivers the Greatest E3 Press ...:


Nah, I was just mentioning that to him. Not you. I knew what you meant. The only comment to you was about the poor Vita. Lol

I just wanted him to know that I am no Nintendo loving, Sony hater. Like I said, I don't stick with one company because they all make great decisions, at times & they all make awful decisions, at times.



KelticDevil commented on Reaction: Sony Delivers the Greatest E3 Press ...:


I, literally, made 2 comments this thread before this whole situation you refer to. In one, I used the term "fanboy" but edited it due to Tasuki being.......well, Tasuki & I wasn't trying to start an argument. I was just bringing up a point. I already apologized for using the term. Move on.

The 2nd comment was a few bullet points that I felt were relevant. In no way did I attack anyone. They were opinions. If you don't agree with those opinions, so be it. I don't care.

I just had, literally, 8 emails from you editing your comment towards me which is, well.....sad. I already said I thought it's been a great E3 overall (so far), no matter what console you own.

But if you are going to get THIS upset about what some people, you don't even know, say in a comment section of a video game website......then it is I who feels sorry for YOU.

Also, I am no Nintendo guy. I have owned every major console ever released going back to the Atari. So, what I said comes from a gamer's opinion. I have no allegiance to one company.



KelticDevil commented on Reaction: Sony Delivers the Greatest E3 Press ...:


I wasn't trying to attack anyone or cause anyone any mental anguish by using the term, "fanboy". I apologize if I caused you or anyone else any mental or physical pain with my comment. I have since edited it myself & I will refrain from bring "smart" from now on. Thank you for your time.


I used the term, "fanboy", once. So I guess that means, the "Sheriff" gets to do his thing. Lol.



KelticDevil commented on Reaction: Sony Delivers the Greatest E3 Press ...:

Microsoft says, "Here have backwards compatability.....for free."

Sony's response? Nothing. They will continue to overcharge you to RENT (not own) PS3 games on the PS4. Not to mention Sony spent millions & millions to buy the technology to stream these rented games.

Microsoft showed lots of games & exclusives that will either come out this year or early next year.

Sony name dropped several "big" titles that showed zero gameplay footage & have no release date in sight. Not to mention, some of these titles are very niche Japanese games, so they may not even be a big deal to some people.

Oh and it's not like the FFVII remake is a PS4 exclusive.

Don't get me wrong......Uncharted 4 will, no doubt, be amazing. And Horizon sounds very interesting. But I think some people at this website have had too much caffeine today if they think this is the greatest E3 conference ever.



KelticDevil commented on Talking Point: Did Sony's Big E3 2015 Press Co...:


You weren't the only one disappointed. Don't let these blind Sony fantatics tell you any different.

Horizon does look intetesting, yes. And Uncharted will, most likely, rule. And the FFVII remake will probably be cool.

However, most of this "OMG!!! Last Guardian!!!" talk is ridiculous. Nobody knows if that game will be any good, whatsoever. It's been delayed countless times & has gone through development hell. That almost never ends well, for any game.

Shenmue 3.......there is a reason that series died off & has to resort to Kickstarter to get it going again.....most people don't care. Hardcore Jap game lovers at this site, nonewithstanding.

Media Molecule shows Also, most of these games aren't even close to being released in the near future, much less showed any gameplay. Most people in this comments section are getting all crazy over something they haven't even seen yet.

Microsoft could've done the same thing......"Coming in 2 yrs from now......(insert game title here)......crowd goes crazy bc they name dropped a title." Snore.

I would vote a "Meh." Sony definitely brought, what they interpet to be, their big guns (they had to since Microsoft slapped them w/ backwards compatability), but apparently I am just not interested in those "guns".

Oh & Sony's continued complete disrespect of the Vita is absolutely disgraceful. What a joke.



KelticDevil commented on Talking Point: Is This the End for the PlaySta...:


How am I not calm? I made opposing points to this article. So what? How do you know if I am "calm", upset, or whatever? Are you sitting here next to me as I type? Nope. A person can be calm and still argue a point.

So because I disagree with you, you delete a comment (that also had valid points)? I did not swear, name call, verbally atrack anyone at all.

Way to go.



KelticDevil commented on Talking Point: Is This the End for the PlaySta...:

PS4 games Metacritic scores:

The top SIX scoring games are PS3 ports.
8th is Minecraft.

PS4 exclusives:

Killzone: Mercenary - 74
Knack - 54
inFAMOUS: Second Son - 80
Driveclub - 71 (and was released in disgraceful, broken condition)
The Order - 65

Yea........when Resogun is still the best PS4 exclusive......that's pathetic. And why would I drop $400 on a console that offers me all that medicrity plus I have to pay $ to play games online? Oh and the wonderful value of PS+ on PS4 is immense......oh wait. Nevermind.

My PS3 just choked on a Blu-Ray laughing at this article.



KelticDevil commented on Talking Point: Is This the End for the PlaySta...:


I agree. The PS3 & Xbox 360 are too expensive for this stage of their life cycle.

However, Sammy's constant pointless "PS3 is dead" articles aside, the PS3 is still a WAY better console than the PS4. That will obviously change, my opinion.....Japan is doing the same thing I am: waiting for Sony to earn my money.

Almost every PS4 exclusive has either been underwhelming or a complete mess. Until Sony gets their act together, I will stick to my massive backlog of awesome games.



KelticDevil commented on Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo Are Working Toge...:

This is good if it helps prevent the little $*£&$ that cause these problems from doing it again.

So now we just need the companies to combine Nathan Drake, Master Chief, & Mario into one mega-sized uber-game & we'll be good to go!



KelticDevil commented on You'll Have to Find Food and Water to Survive ...:



I am a fan of the first 2 movies, Mad Max & The Road Warrior (Thunderdome sucked) & have seen them many times. Never did I see any scene where Mel Gibson was kicking people's a$$ the way Batman does in the Arkham games. That is completely ridiculous.

This game is going to suck. Badly.



KelticDevil commented on Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode...:


No.......hate Gabe & Pedro......the 2 most annoying characters in videogame history. When I played Revelations 1, I seriously would have rather dipped my controller in battery acid than use those two idiots again.

But people keep praising Revelations 2, & being a huge RE fan since the original, it's starting to intrigue me despite Capcom releasing it in such a ridiculous fashion & despite me feeling the first Revelations was good, but not great.

It's a shame the visuals aren't up to par. That's one thing you can usually count on with the RE series: It will look nice. But, this sounds like it started as a PS3 game that is, quietly, getting a iffy PS4 port....of sorts.



KelticDevil commented on Project Morpheus Will Change the Way You Play ...:

Why would anyone trust Sony with this type of thing at this point?

First off, like someone else said, this reeks of a gaming fad.

Secondly, Sony has shown they will bail on support for a device (not named PlayStation) very quickly if things don't go perfect. The Move & Vita are great examples of this.

Anyone who pays big money for this deserves what will happen to their money.



KelticDevil commented on Review: Helldivers (PlayStation 4):


Oh ok. This game does sound interesting & fun. I normally don't like multiplayer only focused games, but I was thinking about giving this one a shot.

However, with it not being compatible with PSTV, I am not going to buy it. When lots of other indies can find the time to make their games compatible, why should I give $ to the ones that don't? I know it's available on PS3 & 4 too, but this just had "perfect for the Vita" written all over it. Oh well.



KelticDevil commented on Ubisoft's Going to Put More Modern Day Stuff i...:

I played AC1 & found it to be one of the most overhyped, repetitious games I have ever played. And it had nothing to do with the modern day, Desmond parts.

The game just wasn't that good. I have heard AC2 is, apparently, great........but how this series went annual & still sells, I have no idea. Especially after the Driveclub-like debacle known as Unity.



KelticDevil commented on Mortal Kombat X May Yet Have 2015's Campest Ca...:


You have to understand how this website works:

This site will hype some indie or Japanese game that you have never heard of (and 90% of the gaming world doesn't care about), but they'll make fun of games like Mortal Kombat.

This site will also have "news" articles that are really more opinion blog-like articles where objectivity is thrown out the window.

This is also the biggest PlayStation fanboy site in history, so take some things with a grain of salt. For example, this is the only site I have seen that actually defends DriveClub to a ridiculous degree. You also get about 35,749 articles a month on PS4 sales & how indies are better than AAA games.

So why come here? They are very up to date on news. They give the Vita the attention it deserves. They review almost everything PlayStation related. The site also has a lot of actual hardcore gamers that frequent it, so the level of complete idiotic, casual gamers is kept to a minimum. And even though you clearly are not a fan of Sammy, he does write some good articles.



KelticDevil commented on UK Sales Charts: PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886...:

Being #1 in sales for the week means squat. Like Hollywood movies, big releases rarely come out during the same week so this news isn't really news.

I really hope the game is actually good. It's my kind of game & I love story-based games. I don't really care how long it is as long as it's fun.



KelticDevil commented on DriveClub: PlayStation Plus Edition Still Bein...:


Your point makes no sense towards the argument here. Driveclub didn't get cancelled. They lied about a free version they were offering & using to try to sell systems & get people to sign up for PlayStation Plus. That's not even close to the same thing as Blizzard cancelling a game.



KelticDevil commented on DriveClub: PlayStation Plus Edition Still Bein...:

IGN says that the guy who was interviewed wouldn't commit to the PS+ version coming at all. Ever. In fact, the whole tone of the same news was completely different on that site & others.

This site, which is filled with Driveclub apologists for some reason, will obviously paint this news in a different light, which may not be entirely accurate.

Either way, it sounds like the chances of this game coming to PS+ are best.



KelticDevil commented on Opinion: How Reviews Can Colour a Game's Recep...:

I do feel that Metacritic works as intended as long as you ignore the ridiculously stupid user scores. Sure I think games like GTA, The Last Of Us, Journey, Braid, etc. are overrated on there, but they aren't bad games so I don't get upset if I find a game that I end up trading in even though it got a '94' on that site.

On the flip side, I just played Killzone Mercenary & thought it was great, even though it only got a score in the 70's.

Using reviews as a base guide can be very helpful. Where it gets tricky can be in the 65-80 (Metacritic score) range, but that's where reading actual details in the reviews can be beneficial. Either way, I think written (I hate video) reviews are important. Videogames aren't cheap, so it's nice to have a guide.

And don't listen to Sammy.........written reviews aren't going anywhere for a long time.
