belmont commented on Telltale's The Walking Dead Embarks on a New F...:

I do want it. I am somewhat curious if there will be some reference to the many endings of episode 2 and how they will handle it. I am guessing that since it will take place many years later the events in the end of 2 will have minimal consequences.



belmont commented on Talking Point: Why Are Fall's Biggest Blockbus...:

I don't know, except FFXV (which I have preordered) I have no interest in the games mentioned in the article nor I played any of their prequels (except an old COD). In fact (excluding Vita rpg games) the only games I have bought recently are Rise of the Tomb Raider, World of Final Fantasy and Blazblue CF. And those (with FFVX and Vita) are all that my money and time can afford. So I am not the target audience of those games. I wonder how many like me exist.

Even if I liked those games I would probably invest on a Pro first since I don't want to play games that underperform. In fact if I had the money I would get the Pro since I don't want to play the inferior version of FFVX.



belmont commented on Feature: Happy Tenth Birthday to the PlayStati...:

I love my PS3. Just like a lot of people I got one to see the end of Metal Gear. 80 GB for 359 euros (the big one with linux support). I wanted to buy the BC model but since it dropped to ~450 euros it sold out. My most played games would be the FF13 trilogy, the Atelier games, Blazblue, Silent Hill and some more j-rpg series like Neptunia series. As my favourite game it could be MGS4 although I may have forgot some in the passing years. I also used it to download my PSP games (that I still find bizarre that I can't do it for the Vita). Lately I upgraded the HDD to an 750 GB 7200rpm. I liked the OS too bad it was super slow.



belmont commented on Feature: Should You Buy the PS4 Pro?:

@get2sammyb Does the HDMI cable support 4k/hdr or we have to buy another? Should be really easy to upgrade the hdd? I think I have a spare SATA3 1TB Hybrid SSD lying around on my old PS3!

Also do you plan to do articles on specific game enhancements in the future? I am really curious about Final Fantasy 15 (my favourite game series). I am afraid it will run badly in the base model.



belmont commented on Akuma Is Street Fighter V's Next DLC Character:

Akuma obviously will not be included in the Season Pass... Right?

I really like SF5 but I don't know some characters seem difficult for me to play as. For some reason I fond hard to get better in this game. And now, with the new Blazblue, my time with it will be limited.



belmont commented on Review: Yomawari: Night Alone (PS Vita):

Vita is my favourite console of this generation! I understand the criticism though. Not everyone likes j-rpg games, visual novels and jap games generally. This was a very good Vita month. Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Root Letter, Yomawari, Valkyrie, SEGA girls. I look forward to Cols Steel 2 and Atelier Shellie Plus. I may gave to try Steins; Gate from the looks of it.



belmont commented on Rise of the Tomb Raider's Retro Press Kit Is t...:

@GBMatthew The collector edition is LAME!

I got mine today and the supposed artbook is in the place on the manual on a blue ray box that looks like a small book. It is not easy to describe it but the collectors edition has basically the artbook instead of a manual...



belmont commented on Sonic Mania's PS4 Collector's Edition Is a Blu...:

Meh I want this but I live in Europe. In SEGA they really have no idea what their fan-base wants and were it is located?

As a note I am not bothered by the download key. It may be a good idea for others to follow.

Does SEGA Europe hate retail editions or something?



belmont commented on PlayStation Plus Rumours Can Hurt Studios, Ind...:

Back in ps3 days I have seen comments in the official blog that were like "This year I will buy only FIFA, the other games I want will be released in plus sooner or later." I guess nowadays we have the same with Indies.



belmont commented on Review: Assetto Corsa (PS4):

I am browsing ebay now. I need PC and Game Gear versions of outrun!

Sorry for being off-topic but SEGA surely has no idea that some of its games (not only Sonic) still have a fan-base.



belmont commented on Hands On: Does PlayStation Now Stream Successf...:

And for some reason all those kinds of services like now, video, comics a few years ago, mobile etc. seem to be unavailable here and in a lot of European countries it seems. According to the blog only United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Belgium have PSNow. UK makes some sense but ... should they have France or Germany?

That aside I think that most people sort of have all the PS3 games they want or can buy them cheap. Can they really sell old PS3 games to PC games who want 1080, 4K, 60 frames etc?



belmont commented on Here's How Resident Evil 4 Looks on the PS4:

I have it preordered! Strange that I was charged asap but anyway, for some reason I have no version of this game even though I have played it a lot with my friends.

So, considering that RE2 (and probably 3 after it) is being remade in PS4 we miss Code Veronica and the first Revelations.



belmont commented on PlayStation Plus Price Increase Confirmed for ...:

However 1$ is not equal to 1 euro. Electronics are more expensive here. For example new games cost up to 70 euros! However some things like phone bills are cheaper on some not so developed countries but game prices are the same in the whole region.

As for Plus cards they are very rarely discounted here. All sell them for 50 euros. I wouldn't mind a minor increase if there was an increase in quality but there has not been much. Free games are not so interesting, I struggle to play online in some games, Plus launch discounts are not that good etc.

In case I am very mistaken (I have never played on x-box) Live costs 50 euros here so they may not increase the price in Europe.



belmont commented on Review: No Man's Sky (PS4):

Great review. I will surely look again in this game in the future. For those that played it does it have civilizations on the planets or NPCs to interact? Also is there a story (even hidden in logs etc), a purpose of why you want to go in the center of the universe or is a greater event happening plot-wise?



belmont commented on Review: Batman: The Telltale Series - Episode ...:

I kind of enjoyed it but I would not recommend to someone who does not like DC or Batman very much. The only other Telltale game I have played though is Puzzle Agent 1+2 that is a Layton clone. I may check some more. From the Batman preorder I have Wolf, Walking Dead 2 from plus and Walking Dead 1 that I got on Vita years ago.



belmont commented on Sonic Sprints onto PS4 in Two New Games:

Before PlayStation 1 I was a huge SEGA fan. Lots of time playing Mega Drive, Game Gear. I guess lots of SEGA fans ended on PlayStation. SEGA seemed in the last few years a shadow of its former self but a new SEGA game is always a good thing.
