Valkyria Chronicles is just so darned good. That's how much I care about next-gen gaming.... PLEASE GIVE US A PS4 REMASTER!!! The hair aliasing/artifacting drives me nuts sometimes but how great would that game be without any graphical glitches whatsoever..

@Eldritch well, even if I couldn't name a video game that features good acting, it wouldn't mean that TLOU suddenly does. After hearing the same voice do so many different characters they all start sounding like the personas of Roger the alien from American Dad. Personally, I like the voice acting in MGS1-4, Ace Combat 4's cutscene backstory is performed amazingly well, and Fallout New Vegas has the most acted lines of any game (possibly out of date but still) and very few of those lines are poorly executed by the actors so I forgive it entirely.

@Cowboysfan-22 lol just wait until everything else crazy about that game happens. (Pushed out of combat?! Like "roar" from Pokémon?? Grrr)

MH4U is amazing on my New3DS. I'm loving Abe New n Tasty, great idea and well executed. My love for Valkyria Chronicles on PS3 has been reignited so I'll happily waste hours today on those.

Wow we still can't get off TLOU for its amazing (half-written!) story and (unconvincing!) acting. I watched the making-of video and she does not sell me on being 14 etc. Not to mention Baker's monopolization of the voice acting industry. I can only imagine how bad Destiny must be if people admit to hating it

charlesnarles commented on Rumour: PS4 Firmware Update 2.50 Could Change ...:

Seems a little late; accessibility options should've been included from the start. I'd be mad as hell if I were essentially discriminated against (not really but still) because of something as simple as the text being illegibly small. At least we can all finally remap the buttons to suit our individual needs.

@JesWood13 nothin wrong with snuggling up with AC. I keep neglecting to play for weeks, so the past 2 times I've played I've had to clean up all the weeds! And can you believe you can't edit your pro designs??
Okay back to PS: gonna play Abe new n tasty cause it's a great idea (where the hell are my Jedi Power Battles and Lost World remakes?!) and my BF4 skills need resharpening before Hardline comes out

Umm I'll probably just get the normal day one. Spoiler alert re: bionic arm, Hideo! Weird collector's item when there are tons of MGS momentos they could've included. I'd love a bandana or 6" figure instead. Or a XOF patch and/or black light thingy off the top of my head...

Never ever owned a Nintendo home console! Just PS (tho I just bought a New 3DS, shh). Amazing that the Tube has provided full-time jobs for so many folks, didn't expect it to take off in the way it has (a la everyone's business website changing to their FB page)

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is pretty great but I can't help feeling sad that its not for Vita (especially when my eyes hate the old xl and nobody can find a new one). I'll try to restart the Arkham series and GT6 but the install times kill so it'll likely end up being Sniper Elite 3 or BF4 (anyone else have to start the campaign over again recently?)

charlesnarles commented on Picking Up a PS4 Soon? You Could Also Get a Fr...:

@robjewitt that's my point too though; we've only had the opportunity to spend hundreds/thousands in the meantime, but we'd still have those experiences (save for Plus games which haven't been super amazing in NA imho) available to us if we just pretended the PS4 were released whatever day we pick one up. With a free PSTV.

charlesnarles commented on Ready at Dawn: Some People Will Love The Order...:

I had no idea that Tesla was in the game (a la da Vinci in AC2) until yesterday when I considered preordering it and watched the vids on PSN. So it's an alternate reality divergent from ours at an earlier point than 1886, yet real people from our werewolf-less 1800s exist in it, yet they make "unrealistic" [as in divergent] anti-werewolf weaponry for you.

charlesnarles commented on Talking Point: How Important Is Game Length?:

Fallout 3 has no post-game whatsoever; the story is over and it even autosaves you in a locked room right before. I started ME3 but got a new PS3 so I'll be the only one on those servers while I complete it (without my character from the first two...kinda pointless!). It matters what you're doing in it that takes up the however-many hours. I spend many many hours doing absolutely nothing in gta but I spend just as many practicing in GT, gardening in Harvest Moon, or just doing Sims legacies. Silent Hill games have 2 hour speed run rewards, but they can easily take months to complete.
