Rogue76 commented on Soapbox: Stop Sobbing Over Retail Releases and...:

An interesting read.

A few things that come to my mind when I read this article. First, I enjoy playing indie games, I thoroughly enjoyed Journey, and RCR brought me back to my childhood (especially with all the references :)). Perhaps it's because I grew up in an era where the graphics...well...stunk! While I am in awe of graphics now a days, the graphics aren't what pull me into a game, it's the game itself, and if it's a good game, I'll play it, doesn't matter if it's an indie game or a big named studio.

The second thought that came to mind was a program I heard on NPR, which talked about the state of video games. What I found interesting is that big studios put in a lot of time and money to make games that take 40+ hours to play, when the "average" gamer only plays about 10 hours of the game, then goes online somewhere to view the ending of the game. Because of this, a lot of studios are looking to make shorter games.

Now I say "average" gamer, but I'm not implying anyone here is an "average" gamer, I think the people on here are extraordinary gamers :). But I do think that a lot of people my age, (37 if anyone is wondering) that grew up playing Atari, NES, SNES, PSone, PS2, PC, etc...the gamers of my time now have other responsibilities, and thus, don't have time to play the long epic games that big studios produce.

That's just my two cents.

@Madd_Hatter401 Yeah I agree...it would have especially sucked if I just showed past me the game, but didn't let me play it...my childhood would have been ruined.

I would like 2K sports to make another NFL game too, the last NFL game they were allowed to make was really awesome for it's time; I enjoyed watching sports center each week and seeing highlights and scores from around the league.

I remember purchasing the PSOne. I was a senior in Highschool. I bought the system because I thought the games looked better than other systems at the time. I remember it being somewhat expensive, but at the time, I didn't really have any responsibilities, so saving for the system wasn't that difficult.

A few things I will always remember about the system. First was playing Resident Evil. I remember turning off all the lights, and literally screaming, when one of the zombies that was lying on the ground reached up and grabbed my character as I walked by. That was awesome!

Second memory that comes to mind was playing Madden. I remember my dad watching me play the game, and there was James Brown giving an update of the upcoming games, and he said "It's a weekday, how are you watching football?"

Third memory is playing hours and hours of Final Fantasy 7, only to have my then girlfriend, play my saved game and beating the game while I was away. I was not happy.

@XCWarrior Actually, I believe Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning are only $19.99 and you don't have to be a PS Plus member to get these discounts. I know that's more that what you currently have on your account, but those are good prices for those games!

Rogue76 commented on Review: Spartacus Legends (PlayStation Network):

I downloaded this game when it first came out. Being a history major in college, I was excited about this game. I played it for about 2 hours, and haven't played it since. I don't want to spend money on this game, and grinding got a bit boring. It was entertaining at first, but I couldn't justify spending a lot of time grinding when I have a lot of other games that I need to complete.

Rogue76 commented on DC Universe Online's Team May Be More Excited ...:

Funny part, this game is the reason I picked up a PS3 (I picked it up last year). I really really loved this game when I saw my brother in law play it on the PC. I have played this game quite a bit, but also found other gems on the console that I love. Best purchase I've made.

@JamieO Hey...I will be around this weekend if you are up for a game. Saturday or Sunday works for me.

I don't use Twitter. I think you're 7 hours ahead of me, so if this weekend works, let me know what time you might play, and I can see if that works for me too.

Glad for the discussion of the game. I find myself gravitating back to this game whenever I have free time :).

Great review! Well written and spot on! I am really loving this game.

I've gone through both games several times, both as solo and online play. I am impressed on how smooth the online play is. What I also love about this game, it's a great game for people that may only have a few hours to play games in a day, like me :).

Rogue76 commented on Dungeons & Dragons Chronicles of Mystara HD:

@JamieO Yes I'm enjoying the game a lot! Last night I played Shadow over Mystara, then jumped into Tower of Doom online.

I first did a search for a game and didn't find any games either in progress or starting in the lobby, so I created my own game. I got through about the first level and then others joined in. I was worried at first that maybe nobody was playing online, but was pleased that others joined in the middle of the game. We completed Towers of Doom. The co-op game was very smooth, as you mentioned. My only grip is that the other players skipped through all the dialog, and since was my first time going through the game, I would have liked to have read some of that dialog. But that's ok, I'll be playing through the game again and again.

I agree that the replay value of this game is very high. I also find that the trophies are achievable! In some games, I look at what you need to do to achieve certain trophies and wonder how am I going to do that? In this game, I feel all the trophies are obtainable and this encourages me to play the game over and over to get those trophies.

Thanks again for the review. If you are playing online, look me up, rogueleader76.

@JamieO Thank you so much for your response. This really helps a lot! I think that I'll be getting the DnD game this weekend; I've never played them and excited to try them out. And considering that both SC and DnD are the same price, it makes sense to get the DnD games.

Thanks again for the reply. It's because of reviewers like you that I continue to use this site for my gaming questions!

Hurray!!

I agree w/ everyone here, if my PS+ account means better servers and I still get a lot of great games to download, I don't mind that all all. I have to say, I was reluctant to get the PS+ subscription for the PS3, but I'm really glad I did, one of the best reasons to have a PS in my opinion!

@rjejr I think you hit the nail on the head. All that R&D that was put into the PS3 probably paid off for the PS4. To me, that's what I want in a company, take a product, know what works and build off of that model, instead of trying to reinvent the wheel all the time.

The Cave, I downloaded this w/ my PS+ account, didn't know what to expect, but it's a fun game! Also, getting back into Batman: AA, I haven't finished it yet :( Made a promise that I won't play Batman: AC until I beat the first game.
