Swiket commented on People Are Going Daft Over Dark Souls III Clot...:

I don't care about the expectations, in fact this is exactly what I expected. Another lame attempt from Namco Bandai to cash in on the Dark Souls name before their last game in the series comes out.

Between this and the release date BS, FROM Software can't leave Namco behind soon enough.

Swiket commented on Review: Dark Souls III (PS4):

I thought about buying Dark Souls 2 on the PS4 so I could replay it, since I never played the expansion packs. Then I remembered the goofy world design, the dumb Pharos stones, the amount of boss fights that rely on having multiple opponents... no thanks. Looking forward to DS3, though.

Swiket commented on No Man's Sky Will Carry An Intergalactic Entry...:

Ehhhhh I don't know about this.

I defended The Witness's price point, but mostly because that game didn't look shallow as hell like No Man's Sky does. I don't care about millions of procedurally generated planets if the game is as dull as it looks. We'll see.

Swiket commented on So, That Other VR Headset Will Cost You $800:

@Splat Yeah definitely. It really is a "see it to believe it" experience. They need to set up kiosks at Best Buy or something.

That said, I think Sony/Oculus/HTC know that 2016 won't be the year that VR starts to be appealing to the average consumer. Right now, it's for the enthusiast crowd who spends hundreds on racing wheels and flight stick controllers.

Swiket commented on Reaction: Why Sony Won't Deploy PS4 Exclusives...:

I couldn't care less tbh. Hell, I'd be happy if more people got to play Bloodborne so it could get more recognition.

I'm not saying it SHOULD happen though. I'll let Sony worry about their financials while I focus on playing games.

Swiket commented on Guide: How to Solve the Puzzles in The Witness:

Worth noting that when you group shapes together, a shape doesn't have to correspond to the icon that the shape is on. As long as the icon is in the group of shapes, you're good. This is kind hard to explain without a visual.

A lot of people seem to have trouble with the shape puzzles.

Forget a notepad, the camera roll on my cell phone is filled with puzzle photos I needed to take for future reference.

Swiket commented on Review: The Witness (PS4):

To echo what is said in the review: unlike Portal or The Talos Principle, there really isn't any story or character development that may hold your attention when you're not doing puzzles. That said, they do a lot of creative things with integrating the environment into puzzles.

Swiket commented on The Witness Will Cost You a Pretty Penny on PS4:

Fine by me. I paid $50 for Portal 2 and $40 for The Talos Principle (when they launched on PC) and they were well worth it. I'd happily pay $40 for another first-person puzzle game of similar quality.

Swiket commented on Review: Infinifactory (PS4):

This was one of my favorite games last year, but the complex machinery building is definitely not for everyone. And I've never touched the PS4 version so I don't know about the controls. It was definitely worth the price for me though.

If you're looking for something similar, check out SpaceChem on the PC, which is from the same developer.

Swiket commented on Feature: 33 PS4, PlayStation VR Predictions fo...:

Here's my predictions:

  • Mass Effect Andromeda will be delayed to 2017, and a Mass Effect trilogy remaster is released this year instead.
  • The Last of Us 2 receives a short teaser at Sony's E3 conference.
  • Nathan Drake doesn't die, but Uncharted 4 ends in a way that makes it unrealistic to see another game featuring Nathan Drake (he's left paralyzed or something, I dunno)
