drumsandperc92 commented on Mortal Kombat X Unleashes a Fatality on PS4 an...:

i have to say, i'm a little disappointed that developers aren't going next gen only with more titles, especially a full year after PS4/X1 are out.
I feel like releasing games on multiple generations of hardware is potentially holding back what the early adopters of next gen systems could be getting.
You need only look at AC:U vs AC Black Flag to see the difference. Or The Division vs say, Watch_Dogs. Next gen only games take much more advantage of the power of the systems, and I was under the impression MKX was next gen only as well. Oh well...

drumsandperc92 commented on PS4 Shooter Velocity 2X Flies for Free in Sept...:

Again, not sure about this month. So far i've downloaded all the freebies on PS4 since I bought the system at launch, but I've only kept maybe half a dozen of them. Just not doing it for me, though I do really appreciate that Sony gives us free games for our subscription. I've not heard of either Velocity 2x or Sportsfriends before today, so i'll try them, but right now i'm feeling "eh" about it. PS3 owners are getting the goods every month, sounds about right since it's the end of the life cycle.
I'm still hoping for the day that we see some more major titles given out. I can see that happening starting this holiday season, November or December. It'll have been a year since the PS4 launched, and it'll be more incentive for holiday adopters to get PS+ if they hear AAA games are being given away. I've a feeling knack and Killzone will be among the first.

drumsandperc92 commented on Don't Worry, Crystal Dynamics Considered Your ...:

a game that is attempting to be multigenerational (X1 & X360) will definitely feel outdated by 2016, if that's when it arrives on PS4. If they were going to keep the game off of any consoles, it should've been PS3/360, not Ps4/PC.
Furthermore Uncharted 4 should be out by the time it releases on PS4, the reigning champ of the genre.
I don't think Square/CD realized they really shot themselves in the foot with this one. The game may not even be worth buying when it comes out for the reasons I said, but I would've plunked out the $65 for it if it was released on PS4 while waiting for Uncharted...I loved Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. The news was definitely a disappointing blow for me.

drumsandperc92 commented on Gamescom 2014: Assassin's Creed Rogue Looks a ...:

Honestly I was initially ticked that AC Rogue is only coming out on last gen, because I would've preferred to have it on PS4 like Black Flag last year.
But the more I think about it, the more and more it feels like a spinoff. I'll likely end up skipping the game.
Finally we have an opportunity to play as a templar, they could've REALLY changed the gameplay around, but instead it will look and feel identical to playing an assassin. The whole "trained as an assassin and becomes a templar" thing is the least creative way to let us play as a templar. They should have their own unique tools, gear, animations, skills, and 'brotherhood' that functions and feels different than the assassins. They shouldn't move the same, they aren't the same, the templar targets we've hunted in past AC games were more like politicians, behind the scenes guys controlling the puppets, not like assassins.
Also, the fact that this is coming out after Unity is going to make it feel like a huge step backward for current gen console owners.
Visually, even just stepping back to X360 from Black Flag on PS4 will make it feel old, let alone going back to the old gameplay mechanics when Unity is introducing so many new tweaks and improvements (looking at the combat and climbing)
If they released Rogue today I might've picked it up as I've long been finished with Black Flag and I'm eager to play a new AC game while I wait for Unity. But mid Nov? Maybe I'll pick it up next summer on the cheap if anything as I wait for 2015's inevitable AC on next gen....

@Punished_Boss true, I didn't realize that, i don't know much about the game and the article refers to it as a "previously announced PlayStation 3 exclusive"
Either way, I'm just not that interested in the game in general. Suppose thats why I am mostly disappointed if this is all Sony has to offer at Gamescom...

drumsandperc92 commented on Gamescom 2014: Sony to Reveal How Horror Is Be...:

so, the big reveal for PS4 is another PS3 port? Look, I loved the Tomb Raider port, I'm loving some of the ps3 titles i never got to play such as Flower, The Last of Us, looking forward to playing GTAV, and Journey, but right now it feels like there are more multigenerational games on PS4 than new generation games...and for Gamescom's big reveal is a port? That isn't right, especially when we have Guerrilla Games and Media Molecule and other Sony developers working on unannounced titles...

drumsandperc92 commented on You'll Need to Find Your Sea Legs for the Dark...:

AC Rouge has really got me scratching my head. I simply don't understand Ubisoft's logic....it's exclusively last gen???
Even after AC4 ran beautifully on ps4/x1?
It just doesn't make sense. I understand supporting last gen, but after a full year of new consoles being out they release a game only for last gen, when we all know the engine they are using is fully operational on next gen, AND the year BEFORE we got a game that was multigenerational?
I'm looking forward to AC: Unity more than anything, but I'd love to play Rogue as well. I still have my 360, but after playing AC4 on PS4 last year it's going to feel like a big step backward to play Rogue on 360.
I understand last gen is still a huge market and it makes financial sense to support it, however, what doesn't make sense is to also shut out the 10 million+ people who have already switched over to PS4/X1 when AC4 bridged the gap perfectly a year ago? Why would you NOT make a current gen version?

drumsandperc92 commented on August PlayStation Plus Leaked Lineup Dismisse...:

octodad was fun when i played it on a friends PS4, would've definitely enjoyed it if it was a freebie, and the Swapper looks very interesting to me so I would've liked to try it. That being said, maybe Sony will surprise us and give us even better games! I'd love a giveaway of Rayman Legends, or Oddworld, or Knack. Though I'm guessing they'll be sticking with just indies a while longer on PS4.

drumsandperc92 commented on Talking Point: Why PS4's Christmas Offering Is...:

this year ill be picking up AC Unity, GTAV, TLOU, LBP3, possibly Destiny, DriveClub, and Farcry 4. Thats a LOT to play, exclusive or not, especially for a casual gamer. In actuality, those are the games I want. I'll more likely only be forking out the cash for 2 or 3 of them.
However, I really do think Sony needs to remind us why PS4 is the best place to play, in 2015, especially if there is going to be cross platform parity in 3rd party games going forward. What do I want? To be blunt, I want Sony to revive Crash.
Plain and simple. That would be a killer app for sure, for older fans like myself where it would be a sweet and long awaited reunion dripping in nostalgia, and for new younger players that could experience a proper 3D platformer on Sony's newest system (which it is currently lacking)

drumsandperc92 commented on Leaked PS4 Brawler Tekken 7 Gets a Tense New T...:

Tekken 6 was the first Tekken I played since Tekken 3 back on PS1, and 6 was a huge let down. I'm stoked for MKX right now, so I'll wait to see if Tekken 7 will be the return to the series I've been waiting for. If not, MKX will scratch my fighting itch. If Tekken 7 turns out to be good, then I'll be glad to give it a go. MKX is a 2D fighter after all, so a 3D would be a good compliment to have in my PS4's library.

drumsandperc92 commented on Sony: We Won't Close the Door on Crash Bandico...:

I had a PS1 growing up and Crash games were always some of my favorites, but Crash post PS1 really was all down hill. I remember playing only one or two on Xbox and I recall they were pretty bad.
When/why/how did Activision acquire the rights to the character, if Naughty Dog was the company that started it all?
I would LOVE to see Naughty Dog get it's old IP back and hit the drawing board fresh for PS4.

drumsandperc92 commented on Twitch's E3 Streaming Schedule Teases 13 New P...:

hmm, interesting list. I count 4 unannounced titles for Nintendo. One has got to be the new Zelda, i wonder what the other will be.
As for Ubisoft, i see 2 unannounced titles but no mention of AC Unity....i wonder if "unannounced" means we (the public) have no knowledge of said game before E3, or if "unannounced" simply means that the developers themselves simply haven't told Twitch yet what game they plan on showing at that time? i.e. 'unannounced' may very well be AC Unity for ubisoft, and 'unannounced' for Nintendo may be a game we already know about such as "X" or something.

so im a bit confused about PS+, i see that we will get our games all at once, on the first tuesday of each month beginning of July.
But what about June?
Should we expect our plus games all tomorrow, the first tuesday? Or are they still being staggered out this month? And if so, does anyone have the dates they are being released?

drumsandperc92 commented on June PlayStation Plus Freebies include PixelJu...:

super excited for Trine 2!!!! exactly my kind of game, but $20 has been a little steep. Ill try pixel junk too!
glad sony is giving us a bit more, because the titles so far have really not been for everyone...
But instead of 2 indies id rather Sony give us 1 retail game like Knack or something, been wanting to try that.
Although with Trine 2, i really can't complain this month!

drumsandperc92 commented on You'll Be Able to Watch Sony's E3 Press Confer...:

well, i think it's safe to expect a much more major E3 than any of us expected this year to be....
Last february they announced PS4. Last E3 was the PS4's E3 debut, and it was a blow out of information.
They didn't do this movie thing at all last year.
Sony, what the hell do you have up your sleeve!?
Folks, the hype train has just broken the sound barrier.

drumsandperc92 commented on June PlayStation Plus Freebies to Be Revealed ...:

honestly I'm just hoping for some sort of retail game on ps4 already, though i wouldn't be surprised if we keep getting indies till holiday season this year. knack is the likely first giveaway but ill take anything really just to try it. CoD, BF4, NFS, NBA2k14, killzone, rayman, anything. the indies have so far been ok but nothing i can really get into personally.

drumsandperc92 commented on Feature: Four Reasons Why PS4 Racer DriveClub ...:

sounds a lot like the old project gotham racing series on Xbox, that was simcade, and honestly my favorite racing games while they were around.
I liked Forza and Forza 2, and loved NFS up until Most Wanted (the original lol).
But i still got the most out of PGR, due to the fact that it was a challenge and felt more real, but was punishingly real and not fun like Forza could be at times. i'm not a hardcore racing gamer by any means, so while Sims are fun, games like PGR hit the sweet spot between real and arcade for me.
Really looking forward to DriveClub now. can't wait to try out the PS+ demo!

drumsandperc92 commented on Here's a Better Look at the New Dragon Ball Z ...:

@wagleton agreed. definitely the best looking DBZ game yet, but if it only goes up to the Cell saga, misses out on Buu & Dragonball, doesn't play like either budokai or Burst Limit, and/or doesn't include transformations in fight, count me out.
Hasn't been a decent DBZ game since Burst Limit though, we're definitely due for one.

The Order & UFC better move aside, ladies & gents i present to you the first truly spectacular leap in graphical fidelity for the new generation.

drumsandperc92 commented on Here's Your First Glimpse of Dragon Ball Z's P...:

graphically looks amazing.
also, i can make out a SSJG future trunks on the bottom right corner.
The thing about DBZ games is they are a crap shoot as far as gameplay goes, could be amazing or absolute garbage.
I won't be excited till i see it in action. I loved Burst Limit, hopefully it's something like that.

drumsandperc92 commented on Reaction: Xbox One's PS4 Impersonation Improve...:

@Jaz007 i agree, Sony definitely has something.
Remember when Jack at last years E3 trolled Microsoft by announcing the price at $400 and the used games thing?
I want to say they will do it again, announcing a small price cut to undercut XO's new price tag. Then again, PS4 is consistently sold out to this day, deman still outweighs supply, therefore it would sort of be crazy for Sony to chop prices yet. Maybe for the holiday season or something though, or maybe they will start Vita bundles at insanely low prices, like $500 or something.

didn't titan fall receive less than spectacular reviews, when everyone thought it was going to be the next CoD?
ps4 doesn't need titan fall. if a sequel improves upon the original, it would be a good bet for EA to go multiplay & id bet they will. but for now, we're not missing much in my opinion :)

@Gamer83 man, i didn't even THINK about that!!!! that would make me jump for joy....i often forget Bioware is an EA company. Thing is, they have ME, which is already a sci-fi space-faring combat RPG lol. while it would be amazing for them to tackle the SW universe, it would be too close to ME with lightsabers and force instead of guns and bionic powers.

lol. $10 off, with the loophole of the PS+ subscription expiring?
No thanks. plus, i prefer physical copies rather than digital only.
I'll try the demo. If I like the game, i'll grab it for sale in a store or even used or something for well below $50 eventually...

drumsandperc92 commented on PS4's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Changes E...:

looks a lot more like a semi sci-fi shooter now. reminds me of Killzone and crisis more than CoD to be honest. Not necessarily a bad thing, but definitely very different.
Am I the only one who'd be interested in a new, more traditional, old school WWII CoD?
They might have trouble creating more elaborate bombastic sequences, but that wouldn't bother me at all.

drumsandperc92 commented on Rumour: Sony's Next Big PS4 Game Project Beast...:

so, Dark Souls 2 for PS4? Or Demon's Souls 2? It looks exactly like the Souls games, looking at the picture with the character stepping into the fog especially. It's clearly before a boss battle lol.
If this is real, and is a Souls game coming to PS4, then I'm super stoked. I've been waiting for an announcement of Dark Souls 2 ports for next gen.
Thats why this has me skeptical. DS2 JUST came out, and they could much more easily port it to PS4/X1 rather than make a DS3 or Demon's Souls 2 or another game thats exactly like the souls games from scratch. They'd be competing with themselves if it released this year. Wouldn't really make business sense.

drumsandperc92 commented on Free PS4 Racer DriveClub PS Plus Edition Will ...:

im satisfied. especially since demos seem to be a thing of yesteryear now, i'm glad to give it a try for free! Also, competing online in the free version is a big bonus.
Depending on how steep the discount, and how much I like the game, I would then buy it or not.
Overall a very smart business model. It's certainly not enough content to satisfy gamers who really love the game and want to play it, but it's enough to get a really good taste for those who aren't sure.

drumsandperc92 commented on Is Lords of the Fallen the PS4's Answer to Dar...:

trailer looks great. I am still sort of hoping for a Dark Souls 2 port to next gen, but if that doesn't happen then Lords of the Fallen may at least bridge the gap till the inevitable DS3.
Till now, i was looking forward to LotF either way, but this new trailer (while looking awesome) directly compares itself to Dark Souls. That said, it may not be a bad thing. Time will tell. Wouldn't be the first time a game is copied, but the thing is, Dark Souls may simple be the first series in a new genre, and LotF may very well be the next. Maybe in 10 years we'll have a name for the genre, with many series that play that way. Not bad. Competition pushes innovation.

drumsandperc92 commented on PS4 Racer The Crew Is Going to Drive Away with...:

fine by me.
I imagine it'll be somewhat like the NBA 2k series. I have 2k13, and to upgrade 'my player' you can either spend a ridiculously long time playing the game and slowly inch your way up, or drop $20 on a points pack and have an awesome character in a day. Problem is, it takes a ridiculously long amount of time.
Personally I found the leveling system in 2k to be too slow, as I really didn't play that often.
I hope Ubisoft balances better, allowing for reasonable upgrades from just playing. I ended up actually buying points packs for 2k13 because i couldn't handle how many hours I would've had to sink in to get the smallest improvement in my player. It ended up turning me off from the game. I'm really excited for the Crew. Don't be greedy Ubisoft!
