charlesnarles commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

I got inspired to play Skyrim (shock, I know) and GTA5 is pretty rad in 1st person. Sometimes. Other times it's impossible. I also realized I hadn't played Pkmn Y for a year so I'm trying to beat that with my crappy team (until they're all over lv.50, then they'll rule)

I haven't played ps3 for a week which is a record. I have more games left to play than I have room for so I've been buying ps4 games digitally (same install size, so no boxes etc. doesn't bother me). My old fatty 60 gig will be used for another gen for sure, I'm glad they're supporting it

charlesnarles commented on Dragon Age: Inquisition's Producer Reckons Sky...:

What about the GBC Pokรฉmon games? Blue was my first RPG, and gold/silver also did well. I love to hear that Skyrim sold 20 mil copies, but I never thought it'd be anyone's first RPG experience, if you can call it that. Game #5 is pretty late to get into the series. You wouldn't get any references or get the tone, necessarily, although I guess it wouldn't hurt to play them backwards. Please remake it for ps4 for us!

I got it day one and was disappointed in the unrealistic car damage (even GTA4 does it better), the redundancy, and getting hacked isn't fun to me at all. I'm gonna finish it some day, but I'm saving GTA5's main ending for ps4 cause it's not a chore to play (usually). Can't help but compare the two, and GTA has better gameplay hands down

@seeafish for me, even more frustrating than the skippy framerate is the slow rendering resulting in traffic signs appearing in front of you out of nowhere if you drive too fast... Even at ~30fps the system will improve every aspect that the devs haven't specifically redone or added, which are supposed to be really well-done. I'm gonna try to preorder for the million bucks

@ReigningSemtex I just don't get why video games are immune to contemporary hardware and software inherently being improved. It's not like there aren't a jillion "crappy-looking" fps and sidescroller games to play from the 90s if that's what you like (notwithstanding somebody having played EVERY game that's been made). Not losing sleep, but earning the same as someone doing less work always sucks (tho my original point is about dev being a form of artistic expression, so it's pretty unfair of me to compare in the first place. I only mean that creating a piece of art takes effort, and it seems like MC stumbled upon a non-proprietary feature of normal game dev)

@ReigningSemtex in regards to him creating a piece of art, it's lazy and corporate. If MC's functions exist in every engine with a 3-d accelerated 1st/3rd person environment, is it still impressive to make one with giant (super easy) pixels? Not even arguing Rembrandt vs Monet, because the pixelation isn't used as a style to fool your eye into thinking it sees more than they really do, but rather trying to be retro by looking "8-bit" even tho kids don't even know what gameboys are! (MC's style is 16-bit, too. Not 8. SMH) Good for whoever and all that, but boo to r****ding the progress we're making as a community in game programming as an artform! ๐Ÿ˜œ

charlesnarles commented on You Won't Have to Worry About Watch Dogs' Infa...:

Oh, this game. It's just so boring to actually play that I don't care enough to play it more than occasionally. The tangible experience is pushing square (teehee) to hack, aiming EXACTLY at something to prompt hacks, and driving around invincible cars. You try to do something and the game makes you do something else! Then you lose and you're just SOMEwhere on the map. I also wanted to like it after loving Driver 1-3

charlesnarles commented on Not Even Sony Understands Why the PS4 Is Selli...:

Because PS2!
For serious. Lost of folks like me made up their minds about the PlayStation brand (which usually isn't prudent to do!) during the late PS1 days and we don't regret it. Japan went crazy for ps2 and how much better is 4 than 2 was! A thousand?

charlesnarles commented on Rumour: Silent Hills May Not Scare You Silly U...:

I really hope Silent Hill5 will be more like the Team Silent games than Homecoming/Downpour and really really hope P.T. is secretly a tech demo for Silent Hill 4 Remastered. Or at least be 3rd p most of the time and 1st sometimes like 4 did really successfully. I need reciprocity for no HD SH4 in the PS3 collection

charlesnarles commented on PS4 Title No Man's Sky Is Probably the Biggest...:

@SimonAdebisi well then that just doesn't make sense as a playable experience. I thought each person was supposed to get their own blot of procedurally generated space in the same galaxy, and as you go where others have before you, you see the other players' content while it's still 100% new to you. So it's a kind of race to the galactic core to see what your pro-gen'd core will look like... but say a million people buy it; that's still 5,000 years per person at 1 second per planet? I must not get it.

@Oculon I'm sure they have a structure to their design which will keep us surprised. And the point is to reach "Coruscant," not to compare each detail you see to the last. If we went to our solar system and saw Uranus right after Neptune, we'd say "lazy programming! Another blue gas planet" But then we'd see Earth with intelligent life and oceans and mountains. I'm hoping there'll be monitored diversity among systems, not just random random random

I'm pissed they didn't offer a discount for TLOU if you already bought it. They're both worthy of porting, but dang... $130 plus $30 for TLOU collectors book w/out dlc.... I'd be at $120 for GTA5 too. Can't do that for every game. I'll have to see if there's a discount but why would there be? ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

charlesnarles commented on The Last of Us' Movie Adaptation Will Change T...:

@voodoo341 every other movie about a couple/duo has been able to. 2 hrs is a lot of cutscenes.
I say it should star a genuine Texan cowboy, snotty teenager, pissed lady, hick brother, gay friend, and last but not least a pissed gay snotty teenager friend. It'll be harder to buy the story in live action, so I sincerely hope it's amazeballs. I wonder what gets cut out? I mean isn't every scene important?๐Ÿ˜Ÿ
