@rjejr

Oh, but @Gamer83 does not misspell Nintendo ;) And yours is usually different because you seem to care more about getting release dates in the first place, than for delays themselves.

@Gamer83

If that collection rumour is true, then no way this is coming in June. Unless said collection releases in April which I find hard to believe.

@JakDax

I read the "only by a couple of weeks" part and did not do the math.

sinalefa commented on Soapbox: Has It Just Been a Bad Week for Games...:

I think that state of the art graphics and production values lead to big budgets that lead to big advertisement campaigns to build hype in order to recoup losses and making profits.

Then the hype leads to disappointment when reviews start to appear and glitches start to be discovered. Couple that with games being discounted if they don't sell millions, making consumers wait until prices drop or patches are developed, thus taking more time to sell.

I am also doubtful of the benefits for indies when Sony/MS put their new games free with their subscription services, or spoil gamers into waiting for those games to hit gold/plus. Or big sites like IGN completely ignoring original games like Scram Kitty.

And regarding risks, both publishers and gamers are averse to taking them.

sinalefa commented on Predator Stalks Mortal Kombat X as Post-Launch...:

I like the stick news, but the bad thing is that I tried the previous game on a fight stick and failed miserably, specially x ray attacks, so I actually prefer to play these on a pad.

Hopefully SFV also supports PS3 sticks, as I would feel more at home with that one.

sinalefa commented on Feature: The Seven Deadly Sins of Game Design:

For me long loading times takes the cake. And then QTEs like Bayonetta's where you are given half a second to react and if you fail you get a game over that actually hurts your score. Good thing they removed those in the sequel.

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

Kojima must be the only dev that slaps a "A Hideo Kojima Game" in all of his games (which usually are MGS games anyway). I was never a fan of that.

And even if Konami removes that from the box, it is still his game. And I agree, if he leaves, Konami is as good as dead. Silent Hills will be done, I am sure they will find a publisher.

Trophies at 0%? So I guess that means games you tried to see if the disc worked but never played. Some games will give you a trophy for pressing the start button to go beyond the title screen.

I actually like seeing that as you can see what each person has played.

Considering that this game is so far my only reason to buy a PS4 over an X1, it is not good news. But I know that delays end up helping the product (except DriveClub) and I don't really plan to buy a new console this year, unless I have a good reason.

"And when you consider that the PS4 will probably drop to $299.99 this year"

This is the part that interested me the most of this article. Just hearing that you need two Move wands kills my interest in this, but if the PS4 really gets that cheap, it would be great. I doubt it since it is still selling like hotcakes.
