MadchesterManc commented on Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae Is Getting Pat...:

Tabata's response to Cindy being 'too sexy' was pure gold. Just goes to show how ridiculous commentators are in the west.

I've only played a little of the demo. Bought a preowned Type 0 that still had an unused code luckily, but I've been enjoying Type 0 enough to leave the FFXV demo for now. Might just wait for the patch to finish it off as it doesn't seem to play too well from what I've tried so far.



MadchesterManc commented on Soapbox: You Should Stop Pre-Ordering Games:

I'll never understand why people preorder AAA games. Your pretty much guaranteed a copy at launch anyway and the preorder bonuses are usually pitiful.

I think the only time I've ever preordered was for titles like Senran Kagura Burst, as your never guaranteed being able to pick up a copy of a niche game at launch. Most places only order in enough to cover preorders



MadchesterManc commented on Soapbox: Sony Really Needs to Give Us More Pla...:

I really couldn't care less even tho I had ran into the issue a few months ago. If spending a couple of minutes deleting a few greedy saves from the cloud storage is too much for you, you have issues. 1GB is enough. I'd prefer to have the choice of what to be uploaded like I've always done with important Vita & Ps3 saves, instead of the Ps4 doing all saves automatically. That's the only issue with it really.



MadchesterManc commented on Soapbox: We Need More New Game Plus:

New game plus is a lacklustre incentive to play through a game again. If the game was truly great in the first place, you wouldn't need NG+ to entice you into another playthrough. I think Yakuza 3 is the only game that I've made use of NG+ on to help mop up side quests on a second playthrough. To be honest it's such a good game I would have started a new session even if the plus wasn't there anyway.



MadchesterManc commented on Review: Battlefield Hardline (PlayStation 4):

The Beta was enough for me to decide not to buy the game yet, I'll be waiting till drops in price. As a long time vet to the series, I found most of the small changes detrimental to the series gameplay. The cops & robbers premise wasn't really enticing either. EA should just get DICE to do another Battlefield 1942 (1943 wasnt too bad) once they've finished with Battlefront.

@Flurpsel It's crazy how the lack of destruction hasn't been pointed out a lot more. I dont even remember there being any at all during the Beta



MadchesterManc commented on Soapbox: Has It Just Been a Bad Week for Games...:

I dunno, it sounds a bit like your saying indie games are the saviour of gaming at a few points in the article lol honestly, the rife corruption & generic releases of late don't exactly paint that part of the industry in the same light as when it seemed to emerge on consoles a while back

I think people are just looking into all this too much. People are hired & fired every day, theres redundancies & employment drives all the time in business. Just because it happens at a development studio instead of a KFC doesn't make the situation different



MadchesterManc commented on First Impressions: Bringing the Beat Back with...:

To be honest, I don't like the look of the backgrounds for the stages. The original Amplitude had some fantastic style to its backgrounds whilst these for the new release just look a bit mundane in the screenshots

Anyone else play Frequency, the precursor to Amplitude? Haven't seen anyone mention it at all yet.



MadchesterManc commented on Gal Gun: Double Peace for PS4, Vita Will Confu...:

Hopefully they add a little more variety to the game this time. The original was decent with its multiple girls & endings, but got a little too repetitive quickly. I reckon this won't get a release in the west, although I did think the same thing for Onechanbara Z2, so I may have to import again



MadchesterManc commented on Reaction: Uncharted 4's Delay Is a Blow, But E...:

@Gamer83 Bandai Namco recently filed a trademark for Rage Burst in the EU, so a localisation of that could be on the cards. I'm guessing Sega are gonna wait on 5 & see how well that does before announcing anything for Zero. Zero has more of a chance than Ishin of being localised at least
