@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

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

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

@AeroZeppelin I'd love to see the misnomers of "AAA" and "indie" expand into more accurate descriptors for the bouquet of genres that have come to be. It used to suffice to describe the gameplay genre (2-d horizontal platformer = Mario, DK, Metroid, Castlevania, etc etc) (FPS = Doom, Wolfenstein, rainbow six, etc). Now that games are 1 accessible anywhere and 2 made by anyone, we wrongly call it what used to make sense when it'd be more accurate to coin new identities for the new types of games we're seeing become more popular than the classic console vs phone ideology. :) I'm playing KoTOR on my iphone for example. Am I indie or mainstream??

charlesnarles commented on Sony Sued $5 Million Over PS4 Shooter Killzone...:

This is why our courts are so backed-up. Lawsuits are to make a person "whole" again after incurring "damages" to their life/liberty/property, NOT for acquiring wealth or financial stability. The issue is if he lost anything by playing the game = nope! Weak sauce

charlesnarles commented on Feature: Why You Should Try The Last of Us Rem...:

@SimonAdebisi lol me too. Does anyone but moms use FB? (honestly wondering; I don't use it because my mom does!) Can't wait til that fad dies out... I didn't know it picked your actual friends, that's endearing :)
I really like the factions mp. Notwithstanding internet problems, I could play it for hours without getting too frustrated or bored (BF4 ahem!) and there's no real exploits or anything to make you feel cheated

charlesnarles commented on Review: The Last of Us Remastered (PlayStation 4):

@Davros79 PSN = popularity contest
If you'll insert any ol' cruddy game into your ps just to show other gamerz your 1337ness, then you're a caricature. It's fun to go thru and see what you or your friends have acquired from games you enjoy, but SingStar plats undoubtedly give bogus rank boosts. I bought guides to eventually plat my favorite games, but not for anyone else's approval or even knowledge. I hate social media! :)

I would still love a direct continuation of the game's plot in novel form. Or another game either set during the original or before/after, with a Venn diagram overlap of characters. Or a movie picking up right as [SPOILER] Sarah dies, as in not "20 years later." Or anything to give more context to this alternate reality to which we all reacted so well!

charlesnarles commented on Round Up: The Last of Us Remastered PS4 Review...:

@mitcHELLspawn oh, I'm just still on the fence about the totality of the experience, not the plot/gameplay which I enjoyably endured a few times already on ps3 (being survival horror and all). I meant that the sp had รผber input lagz0r and my mp experience was hindered by my fatty's wifi card from 2006 (even at "28mb/s"DL) and I'm expecting great things from both on ps4. For the record, I've consciously denied myself from playing the sp (or mp really) for about 6 months in anticipation. We always remember experiences through emotional lenses, so I'll try playing it like a classic SH/RE more than an action game like Downpour or Uncharted. We'll see tomorrow!
