@Paranoimia I set mine to dim (for the sake of my poor cat's vision). there's no way I'd notice unless I use a tv by a mirror. Even at night it's bright enough to see, but not enough to see by.
They don't mean there's no on-screen health bar, do they? (I'd play without a HUD i.e. ranger mode)

@JaxonH oh, I agree whole-heartedly. I just assumed this game in particular was being marketed to the Halo folks, who in my experience are more mature (even if they were teenage) and into the darker undertones of that series. I'm absolutely desensitized after Silent Hill etc., but that shouldn't be held against me :) I get that they want a wider target market but apparently it's alienating me

"Rated T for teen" ...........
No offense, but it's gonna turn a lot of folks off to this game to have an literally immature story and characters. Not that you have to swear and show digital boob, but the tone seems so happy-go-lucky to me.
Beta opens on my b-day, tho! Might have to preorder just for that coincidence

I could care less how long I have to wait for Battlefront and MGS5. It's been years already, so one more just gives me time to focus on other areas of my life before I return to hermit status. I'm very happy to wait for some stellar new gaming experiences while continuing to (re)play ps4 ports of some really solid titles coming out in a matter of days (TLOU, D3, etc.)

@SimonAdebisi Fox News is nightmarishly reminiscent of other older fear-mongering racist propoganda machines, only their target has shifted from one middle-eastern culture to another. Honestly, the things they report may have once been news, but their bias slant is so huge that they come off as uninterested in reporting the true facts of a matter.

I honestly didn't enjoy Resogun or any ps4 freebies yet. If I'm gonna waste my time, it's gonna be on something more "worthwhile" (read: interesting) than Escape Plan or Contrast. My time is simply more valuable than that, to me at least. Also, plot is important to me, so I'd rather read a book (!) than play an indie if I'm trying to relax and escape, which is the whole trip; indie games are less fun than a huge RPG. Sorry :)

@Ginkgo oh, GT6 is much better than 5 in terms of handing. 6 is perfectly designed for ps3: steady framerate and responsive controls. I always say that 5 renders cars and calculates drafting/drifting, where 6 renders cars with big invisible rectangles of "air" to legitimately recreate aerodynamics which realistically affects the cars' handling etc. If 5 was FO3, then 6 is New Vegas. I still play 6 a lot, all I miss from 5 is B-spec mode!
I'd absolutely LOVE to see a detailed interior for my favorite car: '98 AUDI S4

As Silly Westerners, our concepts of beauty/shame/privacy/etc. override what else the game offers. Lots of cultures don't employ the concept of "personal space" that we're all used to receiving (Idk if you'd be able to play/watch anything on a Japanese train without folks next to you watching). We all just have to be wary of any ethnocentrism when it comes to creepy video games. As a democrat, though, the sexism argument, to me, falls flat because of course men and women were never treated equally by any culture, and still aren't. Humanity is still "sexist" today due to our understanding of bio/psychology, and not only toward women. I think the game is trying to show how easily some exaggeration of mere physical features can change our interpretation of other unrelated aspects.

@KillTheG1mp 10,000 boowls of iced creeaam! (Willy Wonka, y'all)
I can't watch any videos without feeling guilty or spoiled, but there are no reasons not to own every Kojima game. This hype reminds me of 4's release. Time to put my mgs1 Foxhound and Stormtrooper face decals on my hdd cover and wait for another year... :)



charlesnarles commented on PS4 Firmware Updates Will Add Missing Features...:

It's not like they forgot about themes or something. It's the dumb 1st attempt at an OS. Just be patient and let them do it. Or should I make a twitter and ask for them to shorten the time it takes to turn off the ds4 by holding the PS button and to remove the screensaver dimmer that happens after 20 min of video playback

@banacheck I guess I just feel like both games are less than the sum if their parts. D3 for example has nostalgia, length, and variety/replayability = good game. I disagree with most devs' idea of what's cool vs what's lame. I loved hating whiney Raiden in MGS2 or Tidus in FFX, and hated hating hipster iSS guy and indescribable WD man. I can't wait to "be" Big Boss again and have some g.d. context! That's what every recent game lacks, says I.
