New Zealand represent.

RaymanFan2 commented on Retailer GameStop's Publishing Ratchet & Clank...:
Insomniac's one of my favorite developers and Metroid's one of my favorite series' (although I'm not usually big on other Metroidvanias) so hopefully this turns out well, but I agree it looks a little meh from this brief slice.
RaymanFan2 commented on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Screens Pop Out o...:
It's nice to have Platinum stuff to look forward to every few months though. This, then Star Fox Zero, then Nier Automata.
I reckon this will be less Transformers and more Korra in quality.
RaymanFan2 commented on Soapbox: Why I Don't Hate The Witcher 3: Wild ...:
It is in fact okay to decide you don't like a game after giving it 18 hours of your life.
If I were to write an article about Uncharted it would look like the first half of this article.

RaymanFan2 commented on Go Lombax to the Future with Ratchet & Clank o...:
@thedevilsjester Yeah, it's going to retain some elements, but for example I really doubt James Arnold Taylor's boy scout Ratchet will end up hating Clank for a good third of the game like Mikey Kelley's in the first game.
And neither approach is necessarily worse, but at the time it was cool to see a buddy platformer where the buddies hated each other.
The 20th-25th are a little busy.Star Fox Zero, UC4, and now this are all in that same few days. I don't think Dark Souls III has an EU date yet and it'll probably end up there too.

@get2sammyb Yeah, having only just played it recently, 2014 must have been horrendous if Shadow of Mordor was all anyone could come up with for GotY last year.
RaymanFan2 commented on Feature: The Best PlayStation Soundtracks of 2015:
Wait, you guys forgot TF Devastation!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqhT3rGllhY&index=8&list=PLA5oACRCDKCO7hhydzx0fVhhnQ1Tq7eB3
RaymanFan2 commented on Game of the Year: What's Your Favourite PlaySt...:
I made a list myself the other day and I surprised myself when I figured out it was TF Devastation.
RaymanFan2 commented on Soapbox: Why Mad Max Is a Hugely Overlooked Game:
@Anchorsam_9 I must say that the way the all the harsher colors very briefly popped during an explosion was incredibly cool. Best explosions since GTAV I reckon.Just Cause 3 has some great ones too but they're too frequent to leave the same impression.
It's definitely one of the better games that uses the Ubisoft open world design document, but it's still very much open world 101.
Yeah, Syndicate's is pretty damn good.

Looks like people are taking full advantage - my connection to the store has been awful this morning.

All now due in April. Jeez.
RaymanFan2 commented on Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Gets a ...:
This makes me wish that only first run copies had the gold cover.Then at least they'd be something of a collector's item.
RaymanFan2 commented on Naughty Dog Takes You Behind the Scenes on Unc...:
That just sounds like generic movie backing soundtrack stuff.
Like if Nate's themes 1-3 are Imperial March then this version 4 is whatever the hell music plays when Luke asks Uncle Owen if he can go pick up some power converters.
When you get a massive orchestra you have to be careful to still have that whistle-able melody front and center or the whole piece will just become a background element.
RaymanFan2 commented on Naughty Dog Really Wants You to Believe That D...:
That look like the ending of Last Crusade to anyone else?
RaymanFan2 commented on Sony's Showing a Brand New Uncharted 4 Trailer...:
Not in NZ. All we got here was a trailer that we'd already seen for Civil War and a new trailer for, perhaps fittingly, Temuera Morrison's (Jango Fett) new NZ movie.
RaymanFan2 commented on Sony: We'll Deliver Completely New Gaming Expe...:
Considering that Kojima had a non-compete until like two days ago, we're unlikely to see anything from him for at least two years, and even then it'll be another year after that before it actually comes out.
RaymanFan2 commented on Hideo Kojima Partners with PlayStation to Deli...:
That white man speaks excellent Japanese.
RaymanFan2 commented on New Hot Shots Golf Looks a Bit Rough on PS4:
Don't worry @get2sammyb, I got the pun in the title even if no one else did
RaymanFan2 commented on People Think Demon's Souls May Die Again on PS4:
I'd buy it.But I bought GoW 3 Remastered so I'm a sucker for this stuff.
RaymanFan2 commented on It Sounds Like You'll Need Just Cause 3's Day ...:
@shogunrok Review date?
RaymanFan2 commented on Guide: How to Beat Bloodborne: The Old Hunters...:
Seriously, f*** the Orphan. I thought Ludwig was bad.
RaymanFan2 commented on Review: Bloodborne: The Old Hunters (PS4):
@get2sammyb Not to go off topic too much, but are you able to say if and when the Just Cause 3 review embargo lifts?
RaymanFan2 commented on Telltale to Sit Atop the Iron Throne for Game ...:
Telltale. Actually love you.
RaymanFan2 commented on PlayStation 2 Emulation All But Confirmed for PS4:
I've got way too many PS2 discs for this to be of any interest to me if it won't run them.
RaymanFan2 commented on Soapbox: Call of Duty: Black Ops III's Campaig...:
While I agree with the article, I don't know if it was worth the effort to write it.Sure, you can analyse and explain why a CoD campaign sucks from a narrative standpoint, but it's a given that most players who would care about an article like this innately recognize why anyway.

RaymanFan2 commented on Feature: 25 Games That Will Make PS4's 2016 In...:
Dis gon b gud.
RaymanFan2 commented on Expect More PS4 Games from Naughty Dog After U...:
Yeah, evidence seems to be mounting for Last of Us 2.After that I hope we get the start of a new IP too.
RaymanFan2 commented on Talking Point: Should Sony Build an Elite Dual...:
I wouldn't mind seeing the D-Pad replaced with something closer to the Vita's.
RaymanFan2 commented on Will Fallout 4's Robot Butler Say Your Name?:
Wow. That's an insane amount of work for the voice actor, unless that robot has a robot-generated voice.
RaymanFan2 commented on Accessory Review: PS Vita Cases Don't Come Muc...:
It just looks like a case. A $60 case no less.
RaymanFan2 commented on Paris Games Week 2015: You've Still Got to Wai...:
I'm glad they left in some unflattering pop-in. It shows this is actually in-engine and in a game like this it's fair enough.
RaymanFan2 commented on Paris Games Week 2015: Uncharted 4's Multiplay...:
On the one hand this looks like it's cheapening some stuff (like El Dorado by making it basically a grenade, or Lazaravic and Marlowe by making them playable characters).
On the other UC3's MP (not to mention TLoU's) was fantastic so I can't wait to play.
RaymanFan2 commented on Guide: What Time Is Sony's Paris Games Week Pr...:
So 1AM for New Zealand...That gives you 8 hours to have all the news up in individual articles for me, @get2sammyb!
RaymanFan2 commented on Review: Assassin's Creed Syndicate (PS4):
@Gamer83 AC2 was a great game but I'd hesitate to say it holds up now.AC4's still great though. That's probably the best entry point now with the possible exception of Syndicate.
RaymanFan2 commented on Feature: What PS4 Announcements Should You Exp...:
Uncharted, No Man's Sky and Nier for me plz.
RaymanFan2 commented on People Are Having Real Problems Paying with Cr...:
Actually I think PayPal isn't working either.
@get2sammyb It's worth nothing that, if a credit card fails for any reason 3 times, whether it's the buyer's fault or Sony's, you can't use that credit card for at least a week, sometimes 10 days, for security reasons.
So a lot of people will not only be not giving Sony money now, but also not giving Sony money over the next week.
RaymanFan2 commented on Is This a Thief's End for Nolan North as Uncha...:
Only Nolan North could stand there in a suit like that with a pose like that and look badass.
RaymanFan2 commented on NieR's PS4 Sequel Is Being Built Almost Entire...:
I'll play anything by Platinum.Except Scalebound because no Xbox.And Star Fox doesn't look good.And Project Guard is Tower Defense.So just this then.
RaymanFan2 commented on Ratchet & Clank Could Be the Best Video Game M...:
This looks okay for what it is but entirely off from the original storytelling.Ratchet was not a boy scout in the original. He liked Captain Quark's radio show, yes, but he was a reluctant hero and kind of an ass.
