@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.

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

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!

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!

@LexKitteh It doesn't :(

The only digital content that it came with was that Hours worth of Playstation Exclusive Stuff.

Off the top of my head I can't think of any Collectors editions that actually included the Season Pass though. I'm sure it's been done somewhere though!

gbanas92 commented on Review: The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 3 ...:

@RawShark @get2sammyb I agree that we shouldn't expect it to change at least for this season, but they've been working with this engine for a while now. (I think they call it the Telltale Tool? Or something like that. It's definitely Telltale and then another word.) And it's been straining itself for almost that whole time. The more vocalized the problems, the more effort to change they'd put in I'd like to think.

I do also agree that gameplay is progressively taking more of a back seat to the story, but I don't really mind that either. The positions that Telltale likes to put it's players in and the things they make you deliberate between give me far more emotional grief than I'd get from challenging gameplay.

@Zombie_Barioth I couldn't agree more! I miss tangible items as pre-order bonuses as well. And I don't mean like a poster either. I'm talking like the awesome deck of tarot cards that came with Dishonored. But even then, it was a Gamestop exclusive rather than for everywhere. From what I remember, everywhere else just got DLC for in-game items. Not cool.

Considering how much they're packing into that, by today's standards, being under a hundred for that is pretty impressive! Especially with the mentality of getting bigger and gaudier, thereby driving the price up a la $250 Titanfall.

gbanas92 commented on Review: Octodad: Dadliest Catch (PlayStation 4):

@Jaz007 I'd recommend starting with the controller and getting acclimated to that (it doesn't take too too long), and once you've adjusted to that either finish the game out with the controller or switch to move to see which you prefer before you continue on.

gbanas92 commented on Talking Point: How Frequently Do You Want PS4 ...:

Personally I'd be totally fine for something as extreme as more than one a day even. The download time on the PS4 is enough that it's really not much of a nuisance. Plus if the tweaks/ downloads are for something productive, I would have no qualms with constant updates.
