RaymanFan2 commented on Feature: Did PlayStation Plus Represent Value ...:

The only three on there that really interested me were BioShock Infinite, DmC, and Tomb Raider.

More because I have enough games to play already without 'burdening' my backlog with stuff that could be good but could be not good.



RaymanFan2 commented on PS4 Exclusive Uncharted 4 Dazzles in Glorious ...:

That combat looks like exactly what I wanted. More Last of Us and less cover-based shooting from a single location until everybody is dead, but still bombastic where TLoU wasn't.
And you guys have no idea how happy I was when I saw hitmarkers. With bullet-sponge enemies like Uncharted's, they make combat immensely more satisfying.



RaymanFan2 commented on Review: Crash Bandicoot (PSone):

Every 'basic' Crash game that followed this was better.
So yes, that's up to and including Wrath of Cortex.
Not to say this wasn't great, but that goshdarn Slippery Climb level...



RaymanFan2 commented on Review: Metal Gear Solid (PSone):

I actually don't think it's aged well. In fact, MGS games are very much products of their time. MGS1 introduced the concept of a game being a movie, but we have things like emergent storytelling now where poor dialog doesn't have to be rattled off for 15 minutes to tell us that "we can buy weapons now" (that example was from MGS4, but whatever).

In fact, the only games that even hold up gameplay-wise are MGS4 and Ground Zeroes. The rest have middling-to-poor stealth gameplay the further back you go.



RaymanFan2 commented on Guide: How to Make Massive Amounts of Money in...:

You guys say that it's a bit 'gamey', but i think it fits with the parody of real life - investors will bail at the absolute first sign of trouble. I mean, Ass Creed Unity sold more than BF in the UK, and yet investors bailed due to the bugs and glitches. I would have thought the sales were more important.



RaymanFan2 commented on Sanzaru Games Crushes Sly Cooper PS4 Sequel Dr...:

Personally, I always assumed that was a cliffhanger for the sake of a cliffhanger and not for the sake of a sequel.

I felt Sly 3 was one of the greatest wrappings-up of a trilogy story ever. While, given the genre, I wasn't too worried about narrative integrity when it came to Sly 4 straying from that, I still hold Sly 3 as a shining example of how to do a happy ending in a kid-friendly plot.



RaymanFan2 commented on Surprise! Sony Studio Sucker Punch Is Staffing...:

Well, Sucker Punch hasn't made a game that isn't sandbox since Sly 1 (which wasn't).
They could definitely be doing another open-world IP. Which I would prefer - inFamous is still cool, but they've made three/four (First Light/Festival of Blood) now and it never seemed like a property that needed to go on any longer than that.
Uncharted, really, was the only PS-exclusive property that deserved to continue.



RaymanFan2 commented on Guerrilla, Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, and Many...:

The greatest possible event for me would be the following: Insomniac shows Ratchet and Clank 2015, ND shows UC4 and pulls a Sega Saturn and releases UC Collection the following day, and SP reveals something new.

I would make a white, sticky mess everywhere if those things were all to happen at the same event.



RaymanFan2 commented on Push Scare: Why the Abysmal Zombeer Has Change...:

There's nothing all that wrong with lowbrow humour (Saints Row does it with aplomb), and T&A isn't by definition a bad thing either.

I don't doubt the game sucks as a game, and I do think it's stupid to put baps on zombies (note: stupid, not necessarily OMG ORFENSIVE), but the game is clearly aimed at teenage guys and fratboys.
And, in the words of Michael Bay; "Oh dear what a crime."



RaymanFan2 commented on Ratchet & Clank's PS4 Remake Will Include All ...:

@BLPs Hmm... maybe we'll just get Nefarious's backstory in this one, as established in R&C3?
It would make sense, to set him up for any sequels.
It'd be cool if, this gen, we got three R&C movies and 3 R&C remakes. I think that's actually be cooler than new games IMO. Also they could probably remake Deadlocked, but 4 movies would be stretching it.
Maybe they could do 3 and deadlocked at once, since you can fit an awful lot into a movie for the running time...



RaymanFan2 commented on Ratchet & Clank's PS4 Remake Will Include All ...:

I'm just glad Insomniac's making it.
Given that it's a game franchise, it'd be pretty hard to screw up a tie-in game, even if at worst it were to come out feeling like a level pack for Nexus or something, but knowing tie-in-maker-studios, they'd manage it.



RaymanFan2 commented on Ratchet & Clank's PS4 Remake Will Include All ...:

Basically, I'm going to assume that the movie tells the story of the first game with a hell of a lot of frills, while the game will tell the story of the first game with a couple of the frills that the movie brings, but be more faithful.



RaymanFan2 commented on Ubisoft Locks Assassin's Creed Unity's PS4 Res...:

Also, I'm more worried about Rogue.
BF ran at like sub 15-FPS quite a good chunk of the time on PS3, and having been spoiled by the PS4 version I'm hoping they actually downgrade the graphics they used on PS3 to get a more steady framerate, since Rogue is apparently old-gen exclusive.
