@ShogunRok Exactly! There's simply not enough for the game to sustain itself. This expansion could have been a part of the Vanilla game, and it still wouldn't have had enough content. At this point, if this is how Bungie's going to support Destiny, they'd be better off just not bothering with this one, and making extra sure they get the second one right!

@get2sammyb a lot of the humor is more situational, and less LOUD NOISES BECAUSE FUNNY. There was still some meme-based "humor" present, but it wasn't leaned on nearly as heavily as in past ones (Can't speak for the Pre-Sequel though, as I haven't touched that one).

I could not be more excited about this composer pairing if I tried! They have both contributed works in more than one instance that rank amongst my favorites! Add to that, that I was already super excited about the game, and it's a perfect storm of hype for me!

@italodance ah, it appears, $2.99 was a sale price for it's first couple of weeks of release. It's regular price is $5. I was operating under the assumption $2.99 was it's regular price!

@Tasuki It's certainly possible it's an uncommon issue, but I've not any additional copies on PS4 to test haha. I know when I played it on PC as the episodes were being released, outside of frame rate issues here and there I didn't really encounter any issues. It definitely didn't work as well on PS4 in my experience though!

@Munkyknuts A lot of the issues were most present in the first one, and somewhat smoothed out afterwards, so if you can trudge through the first episodes myriad issues, it should become tolerably buggy haha. Or you could luck out and just not encounter them at all!

I hope this finds it way to North America! I really want the Swapper. Played it and loved it on PC, and I want to try out the PS4 one. Of the 4 definitive games after November, I really want all 4, something that's not happened in quite some time.

gbanas92 commented on Push Scare: The Thing About PS2 Horror The Thing:

@k_andersen I can't say that Halloween is bad (cuz I'd be lying), but there's just something about The Thing that elevates it well above Halloween for me. I think at least a part of it is the fact that Halloween spawned sooooo many slasher films, many of which are just really not good (including in the Halloween canon itself), whereas The Thing doesn't cover as much of an area. Granted, it's not like it's the first Ten Little Indians type film, but it was just handled so well. Plus the fact that it only spawned one extra film and one game makes it feel less tired to me.

@RaymanFan2 I thought it was okay. It had the right tone, the right environments. But I can't for the life of me fathom why they thought replacing all the ALREADY DONE practical effect work for CGI was a good move. The original (well, the 2nd one, but let's call Carpenter's for the sake of this) had some of, if not the very best practical effects I've ever seen. And the CGI, sort of unsurprisingly really haha, was the weakest aspect of the new one. The credit sequence blending in directly to opening sequence of the original was a brilliant stroke though!

Although, the company that was set to do at least some of the practical work for the new Thing went and kickstarted a movie that I'm super hopeful about. Not sure if you already know about it?

@get2sammyb I can totally see what you're saying about Season 1 Dragging, but to me, most of that wasn't draggy. It was more just room for characterization, albeit, at a slower pace than season 2. I never really lost interest in Season 1. Although I think a lot of that's down to the fact that I just find the cast of characters in Season 1 to be
far better. And no love for episode 4?!?!? :O (I'm not super crazy about the finale myself, either.)

@AG_Awesome Maybe a little bit. The cars don't really flip around or go nuts to quite the same extent, but it feels at least a tad familiar. Not having played Rush 2049 in a verrrrrryyyy long time, I can't say for sure, but I'll say at least a little bit, yes.

Hey @get2sammyb, I'm expecting the answer is no, but are there any of the US tracks in this? Having been to a few of those, I always like to race on those, and I haven't been able to (digitally) visit Unadilla or Bud's Creek, or Southwick (RIP) since I think MX Superfly, which came out a while ago haha.

Yay! I feel like I've been waiting ages for this (Even though I haven't.) This was dar away my favorite game of last generation (Journey was incredible tok), so even if this for some reason doesn't end up as cross buy (it's been said it will be though), I'm buying it ASAP.

gbanas92 commented on Feature: Why Do Next-Gen Games Keep Disappoint...:

Great article @get2sammyb! For me, the first year's marketing and the console itself have been what I expected, and the PS+ offerings for the next gen have been way better/ more than I expected, especially early on with the likes of Outlast. But outside of that, the games themselves have been massive let downs, which Watch Dogs and Destiny leading the pack there. The only game that's come out in 2014 that hasn't disappointed so far is Transistor for me.

@mitcHELLspawn Yes! I'm a huuuggeee Alien fan, but I'm struggling to stick with Isolation. The gameaybis actually kind of getting in the way for me. I just want to explore the environments because they're incredible but the game wants me to play the game, and I just don't want to.

gbanas92 commented on Review: Slender: The Arrival (PlayStation 3):

Yes, absolutely. That score and the issues discussed are solely the PS3 iteration of the game. Believe me, if the PC version were being taken into account, this would have fared much better!

@DHW @Alpha

Just to be clear, I do genuinely the thing the PC version of this game is great. I bought from the dev before it was on Steam, and enjoyed it enough to double dip and buy it again for Steam! Frame rate was not a solely transitional issue for me though, as it actually was a persistent, omnipresent problem, rather than something that just popped in every now and again. The omission of mentioning L2 to sprint is totally on me though, especially given that I called attention to how unpleasant the other button for sprinting was.

@hadlee73 Touché! I've never personally played that one (no DS), but I'd be totally lying if I said I hadn't heard very good things about that one! I amend my previous statement to AVP2 being the last Alien game I've personally played that was actually good!

@LDXD I'd love to see Monolith get back in on the license! The combination of how well Shadow of Mordor seems to be doing with the fact the last good Alien game was courtesy of them (Aliens vs. Predator 2 wayyyyy back in 2001!) would make that a helluva combo. Although the whole Warner owning Monolith now makes that pretty unlikely :(

@Bad-MuthaAdebis @Godsire Well back then Ward's concept just really wouldn't have been feasible to pull off I would think. Too many moving parts both figuratively and literally. But this day and age, a game with an environment could so amazing! Plus that idea deserves to get a proper treatment. It's too unique (especially for the Aliens property) to not get anything.

@Unashamed_116 I didn't notice it while I was running through the game, but I may have overlooked it! But yeah, for now at least, Music Unlimited would be the only way I could see that working. When MP3 support does get added to the PS4 down the road, it'd be cool if the devs were to reintroduce that mode into the PS4 once they can though (assuming it actually isn't already there and I just missed it of course!)

gbanas92 commented on Review: Metro Redux (PlayStation 4):

@CodeSe7en Switching military grade ammo is only something you can do with the assault rifles and stuff, but you hold triangle so the weapon menu comes up and hit R1. In the upper right corner you should see the ammo type switch. For grenades and stuff, hold triangle again, and then use the directional pad to select your throwing item (should be highlighted in the bottom left), Hopefully that helps!

@XFsWorld

Nope haha! I was kind of hoping that myself to be honest. Clem's had enough responsibility, especially this season with having to reel in Kenny, and do all manner of other thing, that adding another player who will have to rely on Clem even more feels like it could push her further to a breaking point than's already happened!

@JMC

SPOILERS

My choice for opting for the gun is that it was my gut reaction (i did that, then saw knife, then replayed so gun counted as my choice again), and I like my choices being permanent in these types of games even they don't necessarily have to be. But, I completely agree with you that that characters redemption is stellar. It just came down to me thinking if there were a season 3 with the same characters, I'd much rather see a continuation of the gun ending. Really though, I feel like a new group of characters or even Christa searching for Clem would make the most sense for a third season! But I really wanna keep being Clem as well haha. I'm curious what gun and knife ends up as too though. Might hafta check youtube for that one!

gbanas92 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of the Sony PlayStati...:

@Gamer83 I don't think they're necessarily falling behind in exclusives. It's just in the short term. Microsoft has a vastly superior 2014 holiday season to work with. Sony has all their games in 2015 it seems. Even things like Tearaway aren't coming until next year. They just don't seem to have much of a stable of games to put out this year. They do have some super awesome looking smaller downloadable titles like Pavilion, but as great as that looks, it can't really hold up to something like Sunset Overdrive! But next year, Sony's exclusives are ridiculous!

gbanas92 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of the Sony PlayStati...:

I wasn't crazy about this conference either. Rime blew me away again, but I was kind of expecting that one to happen. Tearaway and Ethan Carter were really the only other things that caught my attention. The attitude of the show just felt off. The developers didn't seem particularly excited whilst on stage, which just made the whole show feel a lot less fun than say E3 was.

gbanas92 commented on Review: Entwined (PlayStation 4):

@Gemuarto The bigger issue is that there just hasn't been a whole lot to rave about on the AAA front. Sure there are some quality ones out there, but the Indie's are releasing more frequently and offering a far greater of variety of experiences. Plus, when you have games like Transistor just having come out (and Entwined), we can't help it that the indies keep raising the bar!
