Phil Rogers, please...
All I keep is general remarks like MS's passion for TR. What does that even mean? Nothing? Just BS and no one is falling for that.

Hope MS's "passion" was worth the loss of sales this will (hopefully) result in.

naruball commented on Feature: The Best Games on PS4 - 2015 Edition:

Guess I'm the only one who agrees with Journey being n.1.

Great list, though it goes without saying that it's impossible for pretty much anyone to agree with you on all the entries. For example, I think that Infamous deserves to be in the top 3, Knack top 25, and Driveclub top 15. Haven't played driveclub but I heard that it's awesome in its current state.

naruball commented on Poll: Will You Be Buying Rise of the Tomb Raid...:

Little to no interest in the genre, but there's no way I would have bought it new even if I loved it. Sorry, SE, you sold out and, hopefully, the customers will punish you with their wallets. I wish no one would buy it to teach them (and others) a lesson, but fat chance that's happening.

How awesome is this? Guy gets bullied to hell, no one does anything about it and even when someone is arrested for being a part of that group, he gets away with a slap on the wrist. Why should any one of them feel like they should stop now?
Good job, Finland justice system.

naruball commented on Oh Great, Both Prototypes Are Coming to PS4:

Prototype games are awesome, so this is definitely good news for me. Looking forward to the remaster :)

Edit: Forgot to say. I thought the first Prototype game was much better than the first Infamous

Don't see what's wrong with Teddie in that video. He's just acting like himself. Though I have to agree the Japanese voice is beyond annoying. I'm so glad they took a different approach with the English dubbing, which overall is the best in any video game I've played or Anime I've watched.

naruball commented on Talking Point: What Freebies Would You Like in...:

I hope Knack makes its way to ps+ as I've played it and thought it was awesome.

Remember, for every person trashing it online, there's another who enjoy it but is not as vocal about it. I hope people who are sceptical about it can get the chance to try it out and judge on their own.

naruball commented on Of Course Persona 4: Dancing All Night's Getti...:

There's already so called "girls cross dressing" in the game. It's just that women can wear whatever they want and its fine (as it should be) but somehow for men it's a big deal. Double standards. I say let people and fictional characters dress the way they (/their creators) want and leave the "cross dressing" comments out of the discussion.
Just my two cents.

naruball commented on Review: Shovel Knight (PlayStation 4):

@ryanorly
I don't see anything wrong with the review. It's excellent just like your previous ones. I like the content, but I disagree with the score. That doesn't make the review bad at all. Its purpose is to help someone decide if they want to buy a certain game.

For example, The Unfinished Swan got a perfect 10 and I bought it instantly. It sounded like a gem. Turns out I didn't really like it, but I still thought that the review was great. It just wasn't my cup of tea. Same thing happened with other reviews/games as well. Just because I disagree with the scores, doesn't mean I think I'm right and you're not. I just know what I like, which is not always what reviewers do, especially when it comes to indie games.

@get2sammyb
I'm with xVAKAR1ANx on this one. I think name calling should have no place here. If you don't agree with him, you can always ban him, but this doesn't look good for your site, Sammy.

Anyway, I somewhat agree with Gemuatro. I feel like pushsquare's scores for indie games have been a bit high, so when I see a score for an indie game I deduct some points, because my score is usually about 2 lower than yours.

Also, I don't care for these retro graphics. They don't have to be mind-blowing or anything. Mutant blobs or Guacamelee are fine for me. Anything else, I avoid since there are other equally good games I could be playing with acceptable graphics.

naruball commented on PS4 Platformer Yooka-Laylee Makes Over $1 Mill...:

@Azikira
The way I see it, it shows that SOME gamers want that. Whether they are enough to make a game profitable or truly successful is debatable. There are definitely people who would spend hundreds of dollars to see such a game made, but it seems to me that that's a niche. Of course, I hope I'm wrong because I love platformers. Knack has been my favourite ps4 game so far.

naruball commented on May's PlayStation Plus Lineup Will Be Revealed...:

I recently bought Knack and absolutely loved it. It's a really fun and well made game. If they don't offer it for free any time soon, people should at least consider buy it when it's on sale. I got it for 15 quid which is not bad all.

@Vorlon
Same here.
For me that's devastating news as I played it for over 2000 hours (2099 to be exact). It became a huge part of my life, so yeah, worst game related news I've heard in my life.
I get that it was not doing well and that they had to shut it down, but it still hurts like hell. Today I woke up and turning on my vita to play DoS was like muscle memory. Sad...

naruball commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

Been playing Justice: Gods among us. Pretty cool game. Loved the main story. Unfortunately, though, when it comes to fighting games, the only gamestyle that I enjoy is Tekken's, which seriously can't come out soon enough.

Destiny of Spirits continues to amaze me. It became incredibly difficult, but not to the point that you can't wait unless you pay real money. I'm loving that game more and more.

naruball commented on Talking Point: Would You Buy PlayStation-Theme...:

Yes, I would if they were cheap enough. I'd definitely buy Kat, Knack, Kratos, and Sackboy. Even if they weren't implemented well, I wouldn't mind as I just wanna have the action figures and so far I haven't seen any at a good price.

naruball commented on PS Vita App Near Will Cease Searching for Game...:

@eLarkos
Sales are by no means proof of quality. The psvita sales are just as indicative of what an amazing piece of kit it as wiiu's sales and the quality of its first party games.
In other words, it's like saying "I don't get people who praise Wiiu for its games. The sales are proof that they're not good".

The only two serious problems the vita had were the rise of mobiles/tablets and the lack of enough first party games. In terms of hardware it was and still is "a great piece of kit". I also have a 3ds and that has more big budget games, but in terms of hardware, as far as I'm concerned, it's nowhere near as good as the vita.

Yes, this is annoying but let's not act like it's the end of the world. Not defending Sony or anything, as obviously I don't have all the facts, but man, people are acting as if they don't have water to drink.

All I've been playing for months is an online only game (destiny of spirits) and you know what? I'll play something else while it's down. It really isn't the end of the world. And if I couldn't play anything, I'd read a book for a change.

naruball commented on Talking Point: What's Your Favourite PSone Game?:

Easily "Tomba!"

Words can't describe just how much I loved this game. I played it again when it became available on the vita and loved every second of it which almost never happens to me with old games/game I have already played.

naruball commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

@rastamadeus
Just finished the third part of 400 Days and though I get what you mean, I still don't like the characters. I'll try to avoid spoiling it to anyone who hasn't played it yet, but let's just say I didn't really like the black teenager or the Asian criminal, especially the way he escaped. I did find the drug addict's story quite interesting, though.

As for the rest of the comments:
1. I think some of you are using the word "hypocritical" incorrectly. Hypocritical would be if people like Push Square reviewers gave a great score to Drive Club because it's a Sony exclusive and terrible to COD:AW because it's not despite both of them having similar online problems (I heard it's worse with DC). In that case, they would be inconsistent and it would be hypocritical of them to do so. But if at some point the change their review system across the board, then it's a change for the better. What should they do to avoid being called hypocritical? Never change/improve?

2. Bugs/glitches etc. I don't think it's due to lazy developers but because of the little time they have to make the games. Remember when Sony forced Nihilistic (or whatever they were called) to make COD vita in like 6 months? Of course a game made like that will end up being a mess. Same with Ubisoft and AC. Obviously Ubisoft wants to make as much money as possible and they know that by delaying a game and missing the holiday window, they will lose millions. At the same time, with what they are doing they're running their series to the ground.

I'm glad reviewers have finally become less forgiving and hopefully they will affect sales enough to force companies to give developers time to both make and test their games.

naruball commented on November's PS Plus Offering Is an Indie Game E...:

Maybe I missed it, but did anyone take into account that since the launch of the ps4 the ps+ subscribers increased by ... like a lot? Last time they made a statement about it, they said that that half the ps4 users had ps+ and suggested that before the launch of the ps4 there were less than a million ps+ subscibers.

Do people understand what these numbers mean at all? No? ok.

Every time Sony was giving away a game, it was was given to less than a million people out of like 70m ps3 and psvita owners. Because it was given to such a small number, it worked as a promotion of the game. People would try it out, recommend it to friends or make positive comments about it online, which leads to more sales for the game.

If now the game is being given to more than 4m people, which company would be willing to give their game for free to that many people? And if they did, how much money would they ask from Sony? The new subscribers also affect the free ps3 games, because they likely also have a ps3 and they are unlikely to purchase an AAA ps3 game if it's given to them for free.

Feel free to yell a Sony all you want. But how about we have some realistic expectations? At any rate, I still think they should give either Knack or Killzone (ps4) this month considering the whole mess with Drive Club. Other than that, it has been an overall good year for me, because as soon as ps subscribers rose, I knew we wouldn't get many AAA titles. I don't have a ps4 and still think it's worth it. Feel free to disagree, but consider the numbers from a business point, for a change.

naruball commented on PewDiePie Kickflips PS3 Classic Skate 3 Back t...:

Don't like the guy. I gave him a fair chance but I found his voice incredibly annoying. After hearing him scream while playing Deadpool, I decided to never watch any of videos ever again. But they still show up on what's new/popular on youtube. I ended up watching one more titled something along the lines of "I'm leaving". A video in which he explain how he'd be gone for a single week. If that's not incerdibly obnoxious, I don't know what is. Kim Kardshian has huge influence on young girls, but I still have no respect for her.

This is not blind hate. I gave both of them a fair chance and simply found them annoying. I don't think they do actually do anything to deserve any respect.

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

@JaxonH
I disagree. In order to call someone's actions hypocritical you need to compare reactions to a similar situation. It's like saying "killing someone is bad". What if someone kills someone in self defence? Is that the same? Would someone calling both people "murderers" be right? Of course not. Point being: context is everything. When Sony does something similar and people say it's fine, feel free to call the hypocrites.

I, personally, don't like paid third party exclusives whether they are timed, permanent or just dlc. If you feel differently, that's fine but before you call someone a hypocrite consider whether the situation is actually similar enough to warrant such criticism.

@keyser_soze
That's absolutely fair. Their action is a slap in the face of fans and rewarding them with sales is only sending the wrong message. So don't feel any pressure to buy it. Wait some time and if you feel differently at some point, there will always be (second hand) copies you can buy.
