rastamadeus commented on Guillermo del Toro Says Silent Hills on PS4 Wo...:

@Kage_88 And? The man is massively vain and egotistical. He's so far up himself he could wear his kidney as a hat. That isn't a criticism though. I think he's wonderfully talented and look forward to what he does next but, let's be brutally honest, he will be too proud and full of himself to not go it alone. By doing so he will rely on Kickstarter and when he starts pissing away that money on more and more cutscenes it will quickly run out and he'll be forced to get publisher backing.

@Comrade44 Massively off topic that. But yeah, being racist constantly, bringing embarrassment to his work place and then punching someone because lunch wasn't ready... easy to see why you'd be annoyed Clarkson lost his job. Besides, if you can't see he deliberately got himself fired to move to another company ("Hello, Mr. Murdoch!") for more money then you really need to step outside into the real world a bit more.



rastamadeus commented on Guillermo del Toro Says Silent Hills on PS4 Wo...:

It's no great shame to be honest. The full game was never going to live up to PT.

@Jaz007 he's got more ego than Piers Morgan and Katie Hopkins combined. He'll go solo, the game will never get made (lack of money) and he'll go to a publisher with his tail between his legs for much less money than originally offered.



rastamadeus commented on Telltale Games Is Teaming Up with Marvel in 2017:

@FATHASUN True, but they're toning down the X-Men comics and making sure the more interesting newer characters are Inhumans rather than mutants aren't they, so an X-Men game makes no sense as they really aren't a priority for Marvel any more (rightly or wrongly). Involved in it by all means, but not the main characters.

@ToddlerNaruto Now I feel bad, aha. Wasn't having a pop though, you just see so many people say things like that just for the sake of it is all.



rastamadeus commented on Telltale Games Is Teaming Up with Marvel in 2017:

@Splat No chance of it being X-Men. They may feature in it but they won't be the main characters. Marvel don't make X-Men films so they won't give Fox free publicity when the majority of people who play this game who aren't Marvel fans will be people who just know the characters from films. Best bet is Defenders (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist to those that don't know) as the Netflix mini-series is due in 2017 or the two series that have films out that year, Spider-Man and Guardians Of the Galaxy.

@ToddlerNaruto The headline is "Telltale Games Is Teaming Up with Marvel in 2017" so, in other words, you were never excited at all as the first thing you read was Telltale.



rastamadeus commented on Rumour: People Are Saying That Sony Will Promo...:

If this is true (would also, you assume, mean DLC first on PS4/3) it's going to be amusing watching all the hypocritical fanboys praising Sony after calling Microsoft scum for teaming with Activision over the last few years.

@Gamer83 I really don't think an Uncharted-shaped hole is that big, especially if it can be filled by a God Of War title. People go on about Uncharted like its the pinnacle of gaming excellence when it really isn't. It's a solidly performing title that really hasn't set the world alight. Admittedly I'm not from America like yourself and it may be huge there but until I got my PS3 four years ago I had never heard of Uncharted. It's not that big of a miss. Shame for the fans, yes. For the sales? Not so much. A COD-exclusivity deal will sell at least three/four times as much here, would that not be the case of in your end of the world too?



rastamadeus commented on Star Wars: Battlefront's First PS4 Trailer Is ...:

Meh. Looks pretty but showed absolutely nothing of the game itself. Left me feeling like I was on Hoth.

@Jazzer94 Is there a video of that anywhere? That's what I wanna see, not the staged crap which people somehow seem to think creates hype when it's just a way of saying 'we don't think you'll like the game, here's some flashy flashy to make you empty your wallets before realising you've been conned, again, suckers!'



rastamadeus commented on Soapbox: Why You Shouldn't Be Afraid to Play B...:

Is the amount of articles and whatnot about this game really necessary? I know we've been starved of genuinely good games on PS4 (I jest) but every time I come on here now there's seventeen new articles about Bloodborne. I've had it since day one and haven't tried it yet, don't think I will for quite a while as - without even trying it yet - I'm utterly fed up of it. May be on my own here, and if people are enjoying them then fair enough, but it is overkill.



rastamadeus commented on Talking Point: Is It Time to Introduce EA Acce...:

It's a dangerous precedent and one I'm glad we don't have on PS4. Yet. It is inevitable, sadly. I also see someone (can't be bothered arguing and @-ing him) is taking his usual 'it sucks as Sony don't have it and the sun shines out of their backside' side to this. He'd be polar opposite if Sony had it and Microsoft didn't. Fanboys. And this does have a point - before it's modded out - fanboys, good or bad, will buy these sort of subscriptions no matter what, even if they insist the day before they are the work of the devil. Which is why I think they'll become more common going forward.

@Bad-MuthaAdebisi Personally found Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare to be the most fun you can have, multiplayer-wise, on any console over the last couple of years. I'm not an online shooter kind of gamer but I absolutely love it, while my cousin who plays COD/Battlefield like if he didn't he'd die, is glued to it at the moment.



rastamadeus commented on Review: Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (...:

Not played Pre-Sequel yet but I've already re-Platinumed Borderlands 2. My joint favourite PS3 game (along with Red Dead) and now my favourite PS4 game. Absolutely love it.

@Carl-G Just TimeSplitters 2 would do. Sadly there's more chance of Katie Hopkins keeping her trap shut for a minute than there is TimeSplitters returning :(



rastamadeus commented on Call of Duty: Black Ops III Reveals What the N...:

Ah, COD. This time every year the same people bang on about it being a cash cow and how "I'm done with the series!" yet the same time next year they're repeating themselves. And the year after that. And after that. Maybe if the amount of people who say they aren't buying COD actually didn't then maybe it wouldn't be yearly anymore.

Not a massive fan of it myself (bar Co-Op in MW2 and Survival in MW3) but I'm not a massive hater. It exists for people who like it. If you don't - or pretend you don't - why bother letting it get your knickers in a twist? There's worse things in life than COD. Like Katie Hopkins or Cheryl Cole.



rastamadeus commented on Did Dying Light Scare Dead Island 2 Away?:

@staticdash22 "65-75 is a mediocre game imo. 60 and below is flop. 76-85 is a good game, and 86 and above is can't miss" absolutely everything wrong with ratings and why they shouldn't be around any longer. The fact people actually value metacritic scores before buying a game is even more annoying than fanboys, day one patches, day one dlc and everything else that is wrong with video games nowadays.. Whatever happened to having your own opinion? Out-dated concept.

Oh, and "mediocre" means average, in a scoring context average is 50. Basic maths that my five year old nephew can tell you.



rastamadeus commented on Live: Watch as Square Enix Reveals a Brand New...:

@Johnnycide It's someone laying on the floor, a few seconds of video of him being beaten up then goes back to nothing for what seems like six hours. Then he's asked to chose a music style (classical or folk) but he answers nothing, it does it all again, he answers one, repeat, answers the other, repeat, the viewers vote and he's beaten up. Then back nothing. Tedious attempt at trying to do something different. Stare at the floor at work, it'll be more revealing about what this game is than this garbage.



rastamadeus commented on April's PlayStation Plus Freebies Include Towe...:

Been a run of three-four months now where it's been getting back to decent. Seems that's ended. Never Alone apart it's weak for me. Dishonoured (learn to spell yanks) I've got but not played and Killzone I deleted off my Vita in the first hour as it was just boring. Like watching Chelsea.



rastamadeus commented on Review: Axiom Verge (PlayStation 4):

Never heard of this but gonna have to check it out as I adore old type Metroid. No other series in that genre has come close to how good the Metroid games are as most seem to focus more on the Castlevania side. This looks properly good though.

@Quorthon You make out like all Nintendo are doing is rehashing Super Metroid (one of the greats) yet there's been two 2D Metroid titles (one a remake of the original) in twenty-one years. Oh and none in eleven years. So what you wrote is absolute poppycock.

@Johnnycide I was really disappointed with Apotheon. I'd never heard of it til it was announced for PS+ but got really excited about it in the week long wait. After two hours I deleted it as it was as boring as Gary Barlow's voice. Find it odd you see Bloodborne/Order vids on YouTube too, I've never seen one. All I see is Mumford and Sons or one where people jog up a mountain.



rastamadeus commented on Remember to Make Room for Borderlands: The Han...:

Don't like it? Don't buy it. That simple. Only way these morons who run companies will stop massive day one patches, pathetic launch states, stupid loading times, day one DLC, on-disc DLC, etc is to not buy the games. Everyone is outraged by all this but not one sod will keep their hand in their wallet/purse. Until that happens we are just as equal to blame as the d**kheads making these games and running these companies. That simple.



rastamadeus commented on Round Up: Bloodborne PS4 Reviews Reveal Sony's...:

I really don't know about this. It looks great, everyone is saying it's great but there's just something in the back of my head saying the hype is too much. Gonna get it i Friday with Borderlands Handsome Collection though.

@arnoldlayne83 Over half of those sites I've never heard of and never will again. Reviews mean naff all end of the day. Your own opinion is all that matters.

@Sanquine Nice that they deal with the problem after people have made a fuss. If they'd done it in the first place - like they and all game companies should - there would have been no bad press about the game over the weekend.



rastamadeus commented on Rumour: Holy Remaster, Batman! Arkham Duo Set ...:

Why not. Every other sodding PS3 game is being remastered. All these companies may as well do this quickly so they can make money before Sony start PS Now properly and they can charge us to play the games again, un-remastered.



rastamadeus commented on Here's Your First Look at Predator in Mortal K...:

@Bad-MuthaAdebisi I've no interest whatsoever in MKX as the last game and Injustice have put me right off. But if they announce Johnny 5 I will be all over it like a rash. His big, sad robotic eyes looking up at you as he wins, asking where Benjamin has gone... if someone from NetherRealm reads this, stop messing about with morons like Jason and Predator and give us Johnny 5!



rastamadeus commented on Fetch Some Supercharged inFAMOUS: Second Son P...:

Help us celebrate making a load of money by giving us more. Nice.

Enjoyed Second Son - and First Light - a lot more than I thought I would. They're by no means brilliant but they were good fun for the few hours they lasted and got rid of the original two games main stumbling point for me, the God awful Cole. Kinda hoping we get some more DLC of those arena stages from First Light as they were great. Highly unlikely though sadly.

@get2sammyb I like that one. Wish there was more going on though, or the sky when you go up to the menu being dark when it's night time. Considering you paid for it there's not too much going on. I do like it though, best theme so far.



rastamadeus commented on Uh Oh, Watch PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne Take Ove...:

@AyeHaley That just sounds incredibly rude, haha.

@Dohv "With every PS4 exclusive there's always something that people got to overreact too" - a game where you die a lot and there are such long loading times isn't an overreaction though. You are chose to make it an overreaction. It's a problem regardless of console. Say you get stuck on a certain spot and it takes you ten-twenty times to overcome it, that's over ten minutes of sat twiddling your thumbs. I'm sure you'll be happy though, that's ten minutes extra for you to make out everyone in the world is against Sony and no other company is ever given negative press. Everyone raves about Nintendo's constant clangers and we all loved Microsoft's DRM restriction ideas didn't we? I still remember all the glorious pro-Microsoft press that got...



rastamadeus commented on Konami's Recruiting a New Team to Build a Fres...:

As I said in the other thread there's no way he'd go to another company without trying his hand at it all himself. Man has a big ego (nowt wrong with that) and he'll want to do it all himself rather than be bossed around by suits.



rastamadeus commented on Rumour: Gravity Rush Remaster Purrs to PS4:

I enjoyed the story mode but afterwards, despite the challenges, there just felt like no reason to touch it again. And I haven't. A sequel would be better than another remaster, unless they do the sensible thing and make it a budget release and a stop-gap before the second title.



rastamadeus commented on DriveClub Developer Waylaid by Layoffs:

@Sanquine You can't attack people for attacking someone, using 'freedom of speech' as the excuse as you're arguing they have the right to argue. End of the day @Tasuki is perfectly entitled to think want he wants but the people who said his comment are out of order are allowed to as well. If Evolution had bothered to make sure their game worked before release and not kept people in the dark for so long afterwards then no-one at the company would be losing their job. Blame is Evolution's and Sony, the latter as they clearly saw the game wasn't in working condition but authorised it's release. It's sad, pathetic and laughable that in this day and age a video game - costing hundreds of millions in some cases - are allowed to release in incomplete condition. In no other line of work would that be acceptable and people would be fired. As is always the case though the people who make the final call get away scot free and it's the 'littlemen' who lose their job for other's failings.

Personally the only bit of @Tasuki's comments I found odd was "At this point the only reason for them to release a free version is to shut all the whiners up" as it completely misrepresents why people are 'whining'. They want what they were promised and contractually obligated to get when purchasing a PS4 and PS+. Nobody wants people losing their job (except Cheryl Cole on X-Factor USA, that was funny) because of broken promises made by heads of companies but acting like they are happy about it was completely out of order, especially for someone working for the site.



rastamadeus commented on Rumour: Konami Power Struggle Leads to Hideo K...:

After all the problems caused by a big company do people really think he'll go to another one? He plainly wants away from MGS so buying the license for him won't encourage his signature. Besides the man has a near Zlatan-sized ego so will go it alone with a new start up funded by Kickstarter. It will either be a success or a massive clanger when, pride dented, he'll sign for another company but one where he has freedom to do what he wants - something none of the big three would give him after his first title.



rastamadeus commented on Rumour: Konami Power Struggle Leads to Hideo K...:

  • Kojima will be gone by Christmas and set up a new indie making stealth games that will never see light of day due to not having enough Kickstarter funding for week-long cutscenes
  • Silent Hills will never be made and PT will haunt us for years for nothing
  • Konami will release anual Metal Gear Solid games that will be hated by press and public
  • Konami will die, all the best developers moving to Treasure meaning we get more than one game every now and then from them - including the HD ports of their games that Xbox Live got and we didn't (booo)
  • Hudson Soft will emerge from the flames like a phoenix
  • I will finally get a new sodding Bomberman
  • Someone buys the Rocket Knight license (preferably Treasure) and I also finally get another game in that series
  • All is well


rastamadeus commented on PlayStation Now Streams to UK Shores This Spring:

Mentioned this in The Order forum page - The Order should have been put only on this service when it launches properly. Charge a tenner for it for a week and it would have sold like hot cakes. All the people put off by the length, lack of game play, repetitiveness that they've read about would be much more willing to try it and Trophy whores would've jumped on it like Alizée (thank you @Scollurio). People would have been able to play the game for themselves after all the bitching about it and make their own minds up. More importantly for Sony, it would have made them God knows how much more money than it will at retail after all the bad press, got PS Now a lot of attention and would have been an exclusive to launch it. Seems like a missed opportunity for good press and easy money.

On topic, still not convinced this thing will work out in the long haul but registering now to hopefully have a goosey.



rastamadeus commented on This Final Fantasy XV PS4 Video Absolutely Ble...:

The guy looks like Christopher Lee.

I spent close to an hour just watching someone playing the demo on Live From PlayStation yesterday. I'd kinda gone off the idea of FFXV - as it looked like it was becoming a One Direction car journey type game - but it's really got my excitement back. Looks nothing like the Final Fantasy I loved growing up mind, but those games are long gone sadly.



rastamadeus commented on Is Port Specialist Bluepoint Working on an Unc...:

A lot of people want it so it makes sense. Will also fill a corner. It should not be flaunted as the big Christmas hope though, Sony should - and hopefully would - have more sense. Personally I couldn't care, the games bore the pants off of me and I also feel these sort of rereleases should be every other generation. There's far better PS2/Gamecube/Xbox games that should be getting remastered than these three games which Sony will soon be charging you again for getting over PS Now.



rastamadeus commented on Rumour: This Journo Reckons You Should Expect ...:

@Dohv Ah, riled a fanboy. Amazing how often you bang on about Nintendo fanboys then do exactly the same thing that annoys you in defence of Sony. "It's fine to slag Microsoft and Nintendo but don't you dare criticse my Sony" - it's childish. Whether you like it or not, those games you listed aren't AAA. They may be given AAA-game budgets but that doesn't make them AAA games. Bit of a difference. As I fogrot about GT (as I'm not a fan) then yes, you're right, that probably is their biggest franchise, so that's two AAA games. If this Christmas Sony are relying on a Killzone, God Of War, Sly, Ratchet or inFAMOUS then they won't sell anywhere near as much as Uncharted would. None of those games would sell what GTA, COD, FIFA, Uncharted, Halo, Mario, Zelda, etc would. They are AAA games as they are the ones that sell, quality or not. The others are A to AA but that isn't a bad thing, it's like saying an 8/10 game is garbage compared to a 10/10 when it isn't. Not everything is an attack on Sony you know...

@AyeHaley and @BertoFlyingFox They hardly ever really announce something for the same years Christmas. Shortly afterwards/spring or the following Christmas, yeah. The last time a company announced an unheard of game at E3 that sold well and was well received was back in 1997, Diddy Kong Racing.

@themcnoisy God, if only. Not Sony though, it would have to be someone to put them on the right console. Jet Set Radio made perfect sense on the Wii, for example, where the Wiimote could have been used to properly graffiti. Personally I hope Sega just lend companies their licenses. Why haven't Platinum made a Shinobi game yet? Although don't let @Dohv see you talking positively about someone other than Sony, he'll throw his (Sony-licensed) toys out the pram again.

@thedevilsjester If you can speak Japanese then Shining Resonance is rather good.



rastamadeus commented on Rumour: This Journo Reckons You Should Expect ...:

"Big AAA"? Sony only has one AAA franchise which is Uncharted. Stuff like Littlebigplanet, inFAMOUS, Killzone, Ratchet, Sly, etc aren't AAA, they're A or AA at best with cult to mid-size followings but rarely (if ever) setting sales alight. So the only likely outcome is an Uncharted collection and if that is it then Sony may as well not bother. Hopefully they'll pull something of a surprise but they're likely going to have to rely on people wanting third party games on PS4 than Xbox One this Christmas. Lets hope they've got an aggressive marketing plan or (urgh) timed-DLC deals in the pipeline.



rastamadeus commented on This Is How You Boogie in Persona 4: Dancing A...:

@sonicmeerkat Dunno about Europe or America, but in Japan there's two special editions. The 'Crazy Value Pack' includes the game and two soundtrack discs, along with an original DLC set. Then there's the 'Premium Crazy Box' that includes everything you get from the first package plus a P4D-themed Vita.



rastamadeus commented on February 2015 NPD: PS4 Is Best Selling Console...:

Delighted to see Majora's Mask topping the charts. It's always been a bit of a black sheep, loved by Zelda fans but not never given a try by others despite the people who like it obsessing with it (guilty). Cracking game.

Got to admit I'm surprised at The Order. I expected it to be higher because of its advertising so I'm glad it's not, thanks to people actually realising what a bore and how little you get for you money it is. If they give out charts for game rentals I fully expect The Order to top that by a country mile. It really is best as that rather than spending hard earned money on something that you'll never touch again. That game really should have launched with PS Now as it could have made a killing while showing off the service.



rastamadeus commented on Titanfall 2 Mechs Its Way to PlayStation 4:

@General_Spiller It's really sad that CDPR are getting love for doing something which should - and used to! - be the norm. Nintendo were the same too, people being surprised at the pricing/content of the Mario Kart 8 DLC. These sort of things shouldn't even be regarded as something different. Maybe one day it won't be again. I hope so.

@Matt_Berial Those people need to pull their head out of the sand more often. Titanfall on PS4 was as obvious as Chelsea players surrounding a referee.



rastamadeus commented on Feature: These Are Sony's 2015 PS4 Exclusives ...:

No 'none of these games' option? It's a pretty poor looking 2015 for me. Not a single one of those games will be bought (unless Tearaway had substantial additions or is budget priced). Then again I didn't buy a PlayStation for the exclusives as nearly all of them over the PS3, Vita and 4 - to me - have been poor.

@dudeware Go in like this with someone holding your hand. You can have that solution for free. No idea how to put the image in the actual post I'm afraid.



rastamadeus commented on Titanfall 2 Mechs Its Way to PlayStation 4:

Sure there's some people absolutely delighted with this news. Good luck to them, hope it's a good game for you. Personally I'm not fussed if PS4 gets it or the game is cancelled tomorrow. The first one managed to make COD look exciting despite this having giant robots (none of that 'they're Titans, rubbish'). Giant robots almost always make things better. Unless you're a Michael Bay movie.

@Matt_Berial Who? The world and his wife knew it would come to PS4.

@General_Spiller That's the way with 99% of video game companies I'm afraid. There's only a handful who aren't like that. EA get the most hate because of their annual games (to be fair, sports games make sense yearly) but there are others just as bad or worse.
